To start, here's a random self-portrait sketch (used 2 mirrors to get a clear view of myself from this perspective)

Awesome shading, keep posting
I agree, I like the self-portrait the best...I like the angle. You used mirrors to get that? Whew...
LIVE FREE. DRAW HARD.
The sp is really really nice, somehow it reminds me of one of my faqvourite artists, Glenn Farby, which ofcourse is a good thing! Draw lts and lots from life.. got any good anatomy books? If not, get something by Burne Hogarth, his books have helped me a looot
Thanks for the comments and support!
@Viking - yeah, I had 2 small (maybe 2'x2') mirrors, and one of them I attached to the wall next to and above my table. I used masking tape to hang it at an angle pointing towards my sketchbook. Then I had the other mirror sitting on the table showing me what the hanging mirror saw. The angle made it really fun to draw.
@Sarcophagus - lol, no, I don't. In uni I did a *lot* of lifedrawing, so I don't feel like my problem is that I'm unfamiliar with human anatomy. I mostly feel like I just need to keep practicing and get back into it. And I really need to draw clothed figures, because fabric always screws me up. Shoes too. But who's Glenn Farby?
Thanks for stopping by! ;D
He just does the covers to the Preacher? Because I read a little once.. my brother bought it and showed it to me, but I don't remember really looking at the cover. But yeah, I'll definitely look up that book, now that you say there's one on clothes ;D
Okay, I fished out a couple more sketches. I'm planning to get these into Painter for practice and, well, just because I like them, but for now I don't see why I shouldn't post them anyway.

My bf tells me I draw heads too big for the body, especially in the last two of this post. I dunno if I really mind that or not.

I think problem is that the bodies is too short, specially legs. I suggest u to learn proportions. Try Andrew Loomis books.
If you happen to find Burne Hogarths book called [url=Dynamic Figure Drawing[/url] I suggest you get it! Really helped me a lot, building up bodies with boxes and cylinders. And the name of the book about clothing is Dynamic Wrinkles and Drapery: Solutions for Drawing the Clothed Figure. And I think I could say his books have taught me pretty much everything I know about drawing, I have studies some Loomis and Bridgeman too butHogarth always seems to suit me best!
keep up the studies! woot!
