some great studies in here man, ,liking the anatomy sketches.
Don't know if I had talk in Dutch to you, but other people have to read it to. I looked at your drawings and you have good skill (good spatial awareness too) and I see you also are searching for methods that are classic (although I would prefer timeless, because is basic knowledge to me me and not a dogmatic theory)
maybe this book is an eye opener. I have a lot of books and I am always looking for old books because they are writen by people who knew a lot of things that were thrown away. I am studying for art teacher and I am about to teach young children this year at the Gymnasium about this method (always considering criticly what works best)
I am practicing know on glass and though one might think it's cheating at first, it actualy trains your eyes to see relations and bulks first and afterwards you can check by measering (used like shooting at a goal with football training, though you see result on one moment and its gone the second, it comes back in your actual studies). The author says that if you practice a few months, your eyes are trained better then what you can do with measuring. Anyway, a lot to discuss, maar ik hoop dat je er iets mee kunt en ben benieuwd naar je reactie en commentaar, want dit is mooi spul om over te discusseren
o yeah, the harold speed book of painting is a good one to!
Your atelier figures are excellent. And so is your loomis studies. Keep at it. =)

just stumbled into this sb, fellow dutchie trying to make it with art.
At least you've improved massively in the past few years, hot damn!
If you don't mind me asking: where are you at?
I just read you're looking for drawing buddies and I know exactly what you mean about sitting at home
drawing, slowly losing one's mind... maybe we can work something out?
Drop me a line, in a pm or at my email or something.
Keep at it, best wishes.
Hi Nick, thanks for stopping by my sketchbook and saying all those nice things.
Your sketchbook is amazing! The progress you've made is absolutely wonderful and inspiring. I'll be visiting now that I'm subscribed to your thread, so please keep posting. You're work is excellent!
Your self-portrait absolutely rocks Nicky!
Wow nicky. You're lines are accurate and yet delicate. Perspectives and lights and shadows works show how much you are dedicated to drawing. Impressive. So much inspiring. Keep the great work!

Just to drop by to say how impressed I feel about your work, your studies are one of the cleanest I have seen, and your figure drawings have am enviably delicacy. I wish you the best, and that you get what you wish for.
