    Aaaah, drawing on the Right Side of the brain, huh? I'm starting with it too. The Hand is looking good, the eggs also.

    Nice clean copies in your 2nd and 3rd post.

    Keep on working.

    You're off to a good start Norkagar. The horse cast is really interesting.

    P.S Let me give you an early "Welcome to Laffa." Feel free to ask if you have any questions.

    great studies.
    I think in the cast drawing you were too afraid to get to the black value
    so most of it is grey. Go further with values, don't be afraid to mess it up.(:

    ..
    I promise to draw every day, and try to post everyday!(Changed)
    Being inspired by some of you guys,
    and thus decided to pick up my pencil everyday!

    I'll post any junk I make, in hopes of getting much
    constructive criticism and LEARN! (:

    You look like you're getting the inclined planes right.

    A good book for perspective is "Perspective for Artists" by Rex Vicat Cole. It was written in the 1920s, so the writing is a bit complex by today's standards, but it goes over some things that most books don't mention such as how to take into account how the earth is round (not overly useful but interesting) and looking down a hill/up a hill. Also, Loomis has a section in his 'Successful Drawing' about perspective that is quite clear and covers quite a bit as well. Yoitisi has a section in the IDW thread for some perspective related exercises and lessons as well. I believe he's starting up a new mentoring group in the near future as well. He goes over drawing straight lines by hand, and cubes by eye, ellipses, transferring orthos into 3D etc. that's useful. Also, seedling at some point in her concept art 101 goes over shadows and more basic perspective (Yoitisi might as well but I'm not sure). You look like you've gone over a lot of it however. Hope this is useful.

    I have yet to find out how to measure angles though. I'm interested in where you found that out.

    wow I really admire all the technical stuff you're working at; I'm starting out too, and I need to learn from you and learn all the basic stuff - dull though it may be!

    Thanks dude!

    You have a lot of patience. These are good foundations for further progress.
    Also, very good figure studies. Keep it up!

    wtf, your work looks seriously clean and worked through. Those perspective studies from Loomis look like straight out from the book. Those figures and that still life are also looking very good! yeah, keep posting.

    impressive work! I really admire your dedication. I think I do need to do some precise geometrical studies like yours, thanks for the inspiration!

    Wow. You are really improving. Your works look so clean. Your life drawing & figure studies look really nice. Your perspectives studies & geometrical studies look interesting as well. It's nice looking at your sketches. I think I'm actually learning something from it.. You're making me want to improve more.

    Outstanding work! I can't really give you any crit...Your work is beyond my scope. I don't even want to put the link to my sketchbook on here if after seeing your work!
    If that's your work after taking a year off...Maybe you should, say, take a sabbatical for a few years, and see what you can do then!
    Excellent! Can't wait to see more...

    Awesome figure drawings! My only crit: Take a few photographs to share also the steps. I think there are many ways to do the Bargue-like drawings between the measuring steps and the final shading. Could be very helpful to see your steps! Thanks for sharing! Keep on posting!

    Sooo glad that I missed out on cast drawing using sight-sizing. I think there's definitely more value in doing Bargue paintings to get a better understanding of alla prima fundamentals.

    Sounded strange to me as well when one of the guys teaching my color anatomy class mentioned that he does them as regular practice: link

    I'd much rather spend my time doing paintings of bargues instead of drawings after seeing his works.

    I love your figure drawings =)) and the dedication to anatomy! lol the sculpture of the ear is lovely. Is everything you do in pencil? I would like to see other mediums too!! I like how you just made up the folds, sometimes its better just to jot down what you see and feel and refine it to make it perfect later based on other parts of the folds (if shes moving of course) that way you can really learn how the folds work and make them work for you in your piece

    The last two are amazing! I like how you practiced the proportions on the portrait, the shading on both of them is very realistic and well placed. There are some spots that the skin looks like its breathing, like on the right top part of the arm and breast, and the right leg and stomach of the first one. Theres probably more, its just an awful quality picture. Cell phone camera you say? Lol

    Really nice work man, I love that sculpture of the body. It looks very helpful as far as understanding the form goes. Also the perspective studies are awesome!
