    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!

    Hey Norkagar, it makes me very happy to see a fellow Dutchie in serious pursuit of the arts.
    There was a time when I seriously wondered whether there was that kind of interest whatsoever in the Netherlands.


    Not much I can say on the technical side, haven't done too much on perspective and your anatomy seems to be going in the right direction, you can definitely see the improve compared to the start of your sketchbook. Love the ecorche, seems a tad short though, not sure if that was the idea.


    One thing I noticed is that your work consists solely of solely straightforward academical work. I think there will come a point of time when you have to start to address what you personally want to do with art. Try to experiment a bit, play around with graphic form, rhythm, line work, facial expressions, drawing from imagination, etc, try to find something that personally resonates with you, put yourself in your artwork.


    P.s : What book are those pages from in post #35?

    great studies man, that last cast drawing and buff jesus are lovely.

    You say you've had commitment issues or whatever with art. I've always done art and been mildly interested in a career in it, but until I was about 17 i didn't actually DO much of it. Not until i found out what it was about art I had a passion for. You seem to enjoy it enough to quit your job and commit a large potion of your time to it, now take what it is you love about making art and create some goals for yourself. Endlessly doing studies is hard enough with an end goal in mind; without one it can be almost impossible. Try to apply your studies to something and push yourself to achieve whatever it is you want out of art and you'll find a whole new level of motivation.
    Keep at it

    Whoo, Harold Speed! Great book, isn't it?

    Kickass casts. It looks like you really have some great technical skill. Sooo, on that note, why aren't you doing original compositions and the like for your portfolio? I think doing those alongside skillbuilders is important (even if it's just one picture every month or two).

    The head studies look like they came right out of the book. Great job. How long are you taking per head to draw, I read that you said speed comes with time, I am slow as well..nice work. I dont know how you can draw all those geometric shapes hour after hour..
    discipline.

    I hope you don't mind my asking, but you keep on menioning "The book that I'm studying says such and such..." but you never mention the name of the book you study perspective from. If the examples you show on your sketchbook are from the book, I'd really like to check that book out. Thanks in advance...
