    Hey nice start kev, I think you should focus a bit more on construction as right now some shapes seem a bit off,I really like the horse- toy thing, looks great..

    Hey Kevinstarlight, nice stuff. I'm with UriL. It's a good idea to work on construction and breaking objects down into shapes. There are a few things that seem off - the neck and shoulder placement of the man in the second drawing for instance, and the upper jaw of the skull seems to recede too far back from the nose. Work generally - get the big shapes in, then work down and start filling in the details. This also helps with proportions. Measure size and distances of objects as you work, and also watch negative space (the space around the objects).

    George Bridgman is a great resource for learning how to break down and rebuild the figure. I haven't read it but you may also want to try Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain for information (it's pretty cheap, otherwise the local library may have it).

    Great start, keep up the hard work!

    In order to prevent myself from repeating what other's have already mentioned, I'm going to suggest that you keep looking at those bone structures, and practice drawing them on their own as well. This can really help you develop the resulting shape of muscle and skin, as the underlining skeleton is the structure behind all this. In a way, this ties into what nilaffle suggested, about breaking things down into basic shapes. This is just a suggestion of course, but I highly recommend giving it a try every now and then (:

    Anyways, you're off to a great start Keep it up ^_^

    Thanks Everyone for the great Input !

    UriL, I know what you mean I often had a hart time getting the human structure right.
    Although, I had basic Drawing 101 – 102 classes I still don’t get the sharps right including measure the distance.


    Nilaffle thanks for the advice I’ll be sure to look into it.
    It’s a little bit embarrassing to say, but I never quit understood what my Teacher said using the pen to measure the distance of an object. I usually draw by instinct (meaning I’m guessing sharps when starting to draw. It’s weird but when you start drawing without Guideline my brain starting to draw something that’s not there. For example the nose should be bigger instead of smaller. I thing I better stop hallucinating on my drawing and start digging some books for better understanding of basic Drawing 101.

    Copperfire, Thanks for the compliment I’ll better spent more time on the drawing board.


    Resshi I appreciated that, I guess practice and study on my own is the key to success.
    humm… I never did this before what Nilaffle said breaking down to basic sharps, but I’ll be reaching it. Thanks!

    Kevin, I wrote up a very basic explanation of how to measure proportions with your drawing tool over at Crimm's sketchbook. Maybe it will help shed some light on the process:
