    Ugh, I tried sending you a message an hour ago, but the forum is weird and I'm not sure if it actually sent or not, so this is a truncated version of that private message.

    What kinds of exercises do you do every day? I think I am going in circles with my current approach and would like any recommendation. I finished a class at Gnomon in Hollywood that covered elementary perspective and I think I learned a lot. Your studies seem to be in that vein.

    Are there any sites or books you used that give you specific exercises for better understanding form?

    Any suggestions are extremely helpful.

    Hey there. Are you familiar with Chris Legaspi's site? He does a webinar every week and they're covering head drawing. You should email and ask to be part of the dropbox. is the facebook group.

    The webinar is tonight at 6pm PST. I just heard about it so I joined and did a drawing to try and catch up.

    Lol, this sounds like a spambot doesn't it? But since you are really into construction principles I think you should know about this.

    No problem dude. I really like your drawings in that post, I'm gonna study it.

    Since I've started regularly (at least 5 hours a day) practicing, I've noticed that in some ways my old drawings from 2009/10 are actually better than what I have now in some ways. Those drawings weren't done with any structural approach, ironically. But on the other hand, my life drawings from my figure drawing class are indeed far better than those drawings (need to scan them sometime), and I think my structural approach helped that.

    The faces I drew back then are better in some ways than the crap I have going now in my sketchbook thread, but that's just because I need to catch up in practice.

    Weird how the brain works. In the end all the people here are right when they say 'just draw'; we should stop worrying about how our brain tries to figure out and just let ourselves improve subconsciously; the muscle memory will adapt.

    Dude you are sick! I felt this sustenance of amazement when I went through your sketchbook and blog. Definitely going to follow you.
