You could also try Krita. It is a lot of fun. You can even map they shortcuts to match Ps.

Thanks for telling me about this! It feels good to draw again!

Anyway, I decided to trace the skull that Cyangmou posted so that I could get a better understanding of where things go and how things are shaped.



I don't really know if I did it correctly, but I now have a better understanding of general facial structure now than I did with my previous attempt.

try to trace the reference a few more time pretty roguhly to get a feeling for the sizes of everything, and then try to draw it once more without tracing.
If you want to do hard mode, you also could try to draw one out of mind after tracing/drawing after reference a few times.

Alright, decided to trace this skull as I thought it was a better reference: http://i.imgur.com/HaANEkv.jpg

Managed to come out with this:



Didn't do the teeth because I have to go to school tomorrow. How'd I do?

Hi, sorry I haven't posted in a while. IRL things have been keeping me busy. However, in that time, an artist drew my friends picture of me (Here: http://i.imgur.com/eLj9uuB.png) and I decided to trace it and see how it would come out in pixel form. I haven't shaded it or anything, just want to see how the anatomy is. Disclaimer: I am not claiming the artwork as my own, only using it to practice stuff.

Sorry, this should've been in it's own topic.

Are there any problems with the skull I posted?

You haven't really put in any of the interior details! Don't just outline it, try to really get a feel for the contours and fiddly bits!
PSA: use imgur
http://pixelation.org/index.php?topic=19838.0 also go suggest on my quest, cmon

Try "painting" more roughly with larger brushes don't worry about messy pixels.
Just paint the silhouette in a solid base colour and clean the edges a little.
Then paint in the very darkest bits all in one colour.
Then add the next shade and block it all in to make the forms.
Add another colour for lighter areas and another much brighter one for highlights.
Only use a few colours and try to express the forms in confident blocks.
U dont want to try to shade or blend for this type of excercise.

Until ur eye is trained, it helps to reduce the reference image to a low colour count as this will show u much more easily but try to pay attention and learn to do it by eye.

Ok, I think I'm gonna turn this thread into a dump of any art that I do, since I always seem to take a while to come with any ideas for anything and I don't really want to make a ton of threads. Daily Sketch and Pixel Joint stuff will definitely be in here as well as any anatomy study that I do.

Making Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo's Daft Punk helmet. Obviously WIP, just getting a feel for colors and shape right now. Any issues with the general shape of it right now? I'm not sure if I did the top rim of the helmet right, because there are some double pixels there. All in all, how is it so far?
