allright first post. I kinda hate to bring it to you but you do have ways to go.
first things first. when drawing the human figure everything is predictable. in fact its mathematically predictable. i tried searching for a site for you but instead im juts gonna scan some pages from a book and give it to you. give me a day or 2 on that one though.
anyways. when you draw..try this....think of what you draw in 3 dimentions. it adds depth more easily that way
as for value only focus on highlight, midtone and shadow (so white, gray and black)...when you shade you can make transitions from the 3 but make sure you have white whites and black blacks.
if you're interested in doing some poses go to this website. i do a few every night just to keep it up..they really help and they're good poses too www.posemaniacs.com/blog
hope that helped somewhat and i'll post those scans soon. just keep posting here and you will improve for sure lats mate
ped454-thanks for that link, it's pretty awesome. And huge thanks for the critiques. I just got my tablet, so it's still a little weird for me, but every little bit of help....well.....helps....yeah. Thanks.
Here are some more sketches that I drew earlier today, thanks to good 'ole Loomis and his nigh-demigod awesomeness.
Again, any critiques are more than welcome. Thank you for your time.

Hi! I recommend more perspective studies because everything
is affected by it even the human body. Start by drawing simple objects in perspective and then move up to more complex ones. Getting better at perspective drawing will help a lot in the future. I hope this helps.

Well, I haven't posted in a good 5-6 months, so I figure it's about time to do that. I haven't been able to draw near as much as I would want because of school and work and a very charming girlfriend, but I've been able to more in the past few weeks, so here goes.
First, a few simple buildings inspired by lamps and such, haha.

u should do mass amounts of body studies i think. coz u seem to like drawing ppl yet proportions r incorrect. even when ur drawing u should think more about wat ur drawing, testing diff angles so on to see which looks bestin diff perspectives.
keep studying as i am also! lol
also feel free to crit/comment my sketchbook if u want
Check out my SKETCHBOOK...looking for helpful advice!
Decided to start my sketchbook up again. I haven't really been drawing much, but I'm trying to get back into it. Dusted off the ol' Wacom and I'm trying to get better at it, but I'm still quite clumsy at it.
The Ford and Weaving pics show fairly good likenesses, but the outlines don't seem quite right. I'd say to dial back the thickness on those black lines a bit, they seem a bit distracting at the looseness with which they're applied.
As always, gonna recommend figure drawing, my wild inane guess is that you need to try feeling out the forms, and reapply the clean line idea, see if it helps any.
I need to start updating regularly. I have been doing some body studies from posemaniac, but I haven't scanned them yet, so here are two really quick sketches. I think they are both from Domai, correct me if I'm wrong. Also, I am going to try to start doing environments, hopefully often. Do you guys have any tips? I've done some in oil before, but never digitally, which is what I'm really trying to get used to.
