I'll take a study partner too... You can look through my posts to see my works and skill level... I have a discord you can add so we can talk to one another through non forum way. Though if you'd prefer to just critique one another's works (I may have to be helped to find what to look for as I just kind of see everything as looking good) So you'll have to basically help me learn to properly critique... But other than that I'll always look at any of your works any time.

I just wanted to thank you all for the help you've given me... And to tell a bit of a story... I've had schizophrenia from birth... Ever since I could remember I seen things, heard things, and even felt things... Felt paranoid always like someone was out to hurt me or something along those lines... It was rough I talked to multiple therapists about it they just thought I was after attention... Then finally at 29 I got a good therapist... She medicated me I'm still 29 but about to turn 30 next month... And for the first time in my life I can focus on things that's why I've been learning art I've always wanted to be like one of the masters of art since I was a young boy... I can't afford many of the courses on here... Not going to lie I've got some with unconventional means because I'm on disability and would never be able to afford them... But Proko has been the only teacher I understand and can grasp art through... So I just wanted to say thank you for being an inspiration to this person that lost most of their life due to terrible therapists that wouldn't listen. P.S I promise once I can afford the courses I will of course pay for them... Just for now I hope you don't mind my continuation of using the ones I've found else where... I'll even be glad to point out where I found them so you can have them removed... But please just let me continue watching them. And again from the bottom of my heart @Proko I thank you with all my heart and soul. <3

Hey engramtwilbane, Your drawing is pretty good, it's your values that you are struggling with. The idea of this exercise is to simplify the number of values that you have to use. This makes it more manageable and less confusing. First thing you have to do is squint way down until your eyes are almost closed. You will notice that everything that is dark melts together, and everything light does the same. Fill in all the dark and you should have a shadow side and a light side like a high contrast photo. Then open your eyes a little until you can see dark, and light halftones. Then you add your highlights. I did a quick example to show you what I mean. Notice that his chin gets lost in the shadow and his hair, that's okay. Remember, you only have 4 values. I hope this helps :)

Oh wait I see you said 4 values nvm LOL sorry like I said it's hard for me to focus on somethings and I end up missing key details like in your post. :p

Also I have a bit of a vision problem where values end up bleeding together / becoming one especially in grayscale... So looking at your picture you used 4 values? Is that correct?

First thank you for the reply secondly thank you so much for the demonstration. I was confused I tend to kind of nod in and out on long descriptions of things so far Proko has been the best teacher I've found for art though, just wish he had more 'books' on it instead of just videos. But yes I see what you mean I'm going to reattempt it either tonight or tomorrow or well just in the near future may go to the next exercise to break things up a bit and not burn out. Thank you again! <3
