Anthis' Sketchplace! studiescreaturescharactersspeeds and stuff
Time for a sketchbook after quite some lurking.
I enjoy drawing and I'm very keen on improving, so I'll update this thread with new artwork as often as possible. I do not attend to an art school, but I'm hoping I'm on the right track with practicing.
I'll take any criticism, do not hesitate if you think you can help me improve!

[Edit: moved pics from previous post here so I can change the thread's thumbnail]
First batch: Most of the poses are done for the Spartan training camp (under Community Activities). The small ones are from head, I used books and posemaniac.com for the rest.
Arm and shoulder anatomy. Hands are next. O_O
By the way; I use "anatomy drawing school" (András Szunyoghy, György Fehér) for reference.
Although this one is a version (tekenlessen in de anatomie).
Crits more than welcome!

Woah very nice, if you don't go to college where did you learn all this anatomy?
Keep up the good work and post some finished pieces please =D

Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook. Your studies are right on track keep pumping them out, dude! Same with what you said in mine you have some very clean lines.

Nice studies - I feel that you have a strong sense of anatomy here. I suggest you try doing overlays using tracing paper to strengthen your anatomy further. For example create the bones in a separate layer on top of the figure drawing.
My sketchbook is here

softocean; Thanks, seems like good advice. Tried it a little already. Seems logical to learn the underlying structure if you want to know the shapes and such.
Ellingsworth; Yap, really want to tackle anatomy. Or at least the basics. I really have to work for clean drawings though, they do tend to get messy
StarbonesCoffin; I've heard of Loomis but I don't have it. I'm using anatomy drawing school for reference mainly.
Blagsquid; Thanks! Well, I do need reference, can't do this from head (yet.. ). I switch between trying from head and using ref, hoping to see improvement that way. More finished stuff will come later I think, I'm just in the anatomy 'mood' for now, plus I think I need it. Already working on some digital stuff anyways.
Here's new stuff; 50 quick poses for the Spartan Training Camp again.
And those damn hands... the ones with bones are from ref, the others are my own left hand. They truly are a pain. Might try it again later on, don't feel I got the hang of it.
Enjoy! I hope.

Sweet! Another colourblind artist! Maybe we should start a club.
Nice sketches, good progression on those studies. I'd like to see some originals in here too... Since you're already good at copying, it's hard to crit.
Keep it up!

Busy with college, hence the delay.
Whyatt Trash; Yea, I mainly wanted to practice my pencilwork in general, and practice anatomy. But yep, original work on it's way! And thank you.
3 digital sketches, topics from the daily sketch group.
And foot studies for the spartan training from last week. I won't be posting the 50 figures because it takes ages to load. Here's the link though;
More coming soon!

DIMAGYAN; Think I see what you mean, I'll keep that in mind. I'm really after a flexible look but my anatomy does tend to get stiff. Thanks!
Here's an update. Anatomy studies done for the Spartan Training Camp (under community activities), and entries for the daily sketch group (approx 1.5-2hrs)
