    Looking good dude, try and use long single curvy lines on the figures, they will become faster and you will lose that 'choppy' line look. keep posting ;-)

    Hey noverbert,

    The studies are looking good. Just to make sure, do you know what Loomis is doing with those regulating lines bisecting the figure? It's good, whenever you post, to sort of expound upon what you've learned, so we know you're not just copying down Loomis's illustrations.

    I also concur with RandAlThor. It would be highly advantageous for you to start drawing full bodied expressive lines instead of hatching out the boundaries for the figure. Being able to define your object with longer, more expressive lines will ultimately make your subject more dynamic and solid. When you hatch your lines, it breaks up the reading of the figure, and subject reads with less identity.

    Thanks for the comment, Odin.
    Of course I know what are those lines about - I don't just copy Loomis's drawings but I try to read every explanation of him (or at least those, wich seem to be important). Currently I'm trying to learn the proportions of the human body and I don't want to advance to other things till I'm fully confident with them.

    About line quality: I can clearly see that I definitely need to improve in this respect - but I don't really know how. Drawing with a tablet is not like drawing on paper. I mean the surface of the tablet is kinda sticky, and I can't really draw long strokes so easy as on paper (of course I can, but they aren't as smooth as they should be). How could I solve this problem? Should I wear a glove on my drawing hand or something? Or is it okay to draw with little strokes, but I should clean up the mess in the end with an eraser? (I use sketchbook pro btw)
    Maybe my problem is that I don't have any free space on my desk so I keep my tablet in my lap when I'm drawing. (this causes that my arm get really tired after a few hours of drawing) Should I use another desk to draw on (on wich I could put my tablet)? What is the proper method to use a tablet anyway? Give me some recommendations, please!

    Yeah,yeah I know it's not too much but I couldn't draw more as the driver of my bamboo is crashing in every minute. (that's the reason of the sketchiness of the last figure - I drew it without pressure sensitivity)
    I am very pissed off.

    some more loomis sketches. Fortunately the problem with my tablet solved so I'll be able to draw more
    One of the sketches below was made without reference (I definitely need to push this - it's hard to draw from my head). Figure out, wich one

    You're making a lot of progress, Novbert.

    For instance, your control over your tonal values is much stronger, and I'm starting to see much more progress in developing stronger fields of tone, especially in your image of the viking character.

    You could work more at better defining (or make stronger) the edges or profile conditions of your work so that they read better.

    More people need to be in here commenting, especially since your making leaps and bounds.

    Odin: thanx for the crit and the encouraging words. It's good to have somebody commenting here regularly.

    Well, this poor girl turned out just like this. I experimented with some color stuff, but obviously it's not my strongest point at the moment, so I'll go back to the good old black and white stuff I guess.

    that last attempt of drawing some colored stuff turned out so terrible, that I thought it has to be fixed, so I jumped back to an earlier version of that drawing, and started to refine it. Here are the results:

    RandAlThor: Yes, except from that three in post #49 I used references for all my drawings. Currently I'm trying to push this ref using thing with that last picture as far as possible, and than I think I'll try to draw some stuff without reference. (Or I go back to studying anatomy. It depends )
    Thx for your comment anyway.

    some more detail on the clothes, some perspective blur to the hand
