    It might be a good idea to skip to page 3.. (before that lots and lots of repetitive studies).

    Baby portrait - shading/blending practice

    A portrait I did in july 06. This was to practice blending and shading. I traced the outline and I also picked colours from the ref .
    All painting was done without aid though. The original pillow had stains and some pattern on it so I decided to try to draw a plain white instead.

    Bridgman studies..

    From being inactive for waaaay too long I just started drawing again last week.
    First up, studies from Bridgmans Constructive Anatomy.

    I feel that the proportions are my biggest problem as of now, but I'll just keep on going and hopefully it gets better over time.

    On the last image in this batch I changed from ballpoint to regular pencil.. 4B.

    More Bridgman..

    Still fighting with proportions.. trying different ways of finding the contour or silhouette before laying down harder lines..
    Filled my first sketchbook doing this batch.. felt kinda nice! Pathetic, I know... but still, a mini-milestone nevertheless.

    So.. I guess this book is kinda boring..
    However.. I think I will start doing some color-stuff with the Wacom soon!

    Very nice Bridgman studies. I'm studying the same book myself at the moment and just can't wait to get my hands on the Complete Guide To Drawing From Life I just ordered.

    .. more..

    jackpot_anjr90 - Thank you! Yep.. quite a while. Will try and keep away from that color-sampler from now on!
    ismo - Thanks! Yeah.. I'm thinking about buying his Life Drawing, Human Machine and Hundred Hands as well. More Bridgman to the people!
    Moosh
    - Thanks a lot!

    A few more Bridgman studies... not very good yet.. but I will keep on hammering for a while! Maybe I'm just rushing a bit too much.. not taking my time to check the errors and correcting them?

    I have been drawing some 30-sec gestures from the Posemaniacs site but will do the public a service by not showing them. They are just too strange looking. And also.. I threw them away. I get the feeling that it might be better to just grab some real footage and pause some frames here and there.

    Kinda interested in gesture drawing though.. and will probably keep doing it.. I feel that I need some guidance though.. Force: Dynamic Life Drawing for Animators seems to be a good book. Have read a bunch of positive posts about it.

    kev ferrara - Thank you very much! Hehe.. I like cheering.. keeps me going.
    jackpot_anjr90 - Thanks! Yeah.. that's one of my goals. But it feels like I need to fill up the image-bank in my mind a bit more first. Would be cool to start dabbling with some original stuff soon. Will try my best!

    So.. some more Bridgman and a few black/white/grey studies.

    A few more Bridgman studies.

    I have been doing some other stuff as well... problem is that there are so many obvious flaws that I feel like more practice is in order before getting crits on them.

    A mouthful of Bridgman!

    So.. a few mouthstudies and more Bridgman.
    The mouths are reffed from photos and drawn with a 4B pencil.

    I think its hard to get an even shading, especially the light tones (I did not use any particular technique other than varying the pencil-pressure).
    Some of them also feel a bit "outlined" here and there, not being integrated to the surrounding flesh.

    C&C:s welcome!

    More Bridgman...

    Got the book Force: Dynamic life drawing for animators by Mike Mattesi yesterday and am in the process of going through it. Really interesting.. and great, lively drawings as well. So hopefully, I can show some gestural stuff soon!

    Oh Bridgeman, how I love thee! Great work on those studies, have you done much in applying his stuff to actual models (or stock photos)?

    I really should do more Bridgeman work myself, there's so much he teaches in a few simple images.

    Sublimus - Yeah.. thanks! Planning to do just that!
    Nezumi Works - Yep, love them too! Not started to really applying it yet.. but will definitely do that as soon as I feel a bit more confident! Thanks for looking!

    I think I'm operating a bit too much in Xerox-mode at the moment, but still feel that I am learning. The proportions are still not good but some aspects of the process seem to develop slowly but surely. I think I will try to analyze what I draw a bit more when the actual measuring/looking/drawing gets a bit more automatic.

    More Bridgman studies.

    AmontilladoAg - Thanks! What I'm feeling so far is that proportions seem to get a little bit better, which feels good. I felt I had absolutely no control over that in the beginning whereas now I feel slightly more confident.

    More studies Sorry about the lack of variety.. it will come.. promise!
