    ***** CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM IS WONDROUSLY APPRECIATED!!! ****


    Hello people, this is my sketchbook and it will be geared towards bettering my achilles heel, drawing human.

    Up to this point i have always been avoiding drawing human,well no more.

    I will draw every day at least something resembling a human (if you strech your imagination a mile) and uppload here new stuff every week.

    Hey there, thanks for the visit!

    Nice start on a sketchbook. You have some fun creatures there, and a fun use of colour. I like the background a lot on the one with the purple bazooka creature!

    The last ones with the anatomy sketches are on the right track, but you should watch your proportions. Are the last ones drawn from reference? You should really focus on drawing from ref if you don't already. That helps you improving your proportions a lot. Your line is also rather messy and undecided, you should have that in mind while sketching, try to use less strokes with different strenght. Something I'm working on as well, it's easier said than done!

    Keep up the good work, and definitely keep posting! Don't be put off by the lack of replies, they'll come eventually

    Asab: Thank for reply, i drawed some pages from reference and try little by little to get more confidence in my lines. I quess i have to come up with a system how i divide my drawing time between reference studies, free drawing human poses from mind and just fun stuff so i will be making all of them in future, not just fun stuff.

    Posting stuff i shall do, tonight another post as i will make some real life drawings

    Makrophage:Thanks, I will try to get that heart back so we may enjoy ritual of eating a black juicy heart of love with really bad barbeque sauce.
    I have to agree with evolution, i will someday show you my first human sketches and you eyes will start bleeding...

    Your creatures and whatnot are great -- very charming. It is clear, though, that humans are your weakness. I really recommend the Loomis books, as well as whatever Bridgman you can get your hands on. Really read these books, and copy from them, making sure you understand what it is that you're copying. It'll help you a ton. And any life-drawing you can manage, even if it's just out at a park or cafe, will do wonders. Good luck!
    ketchook!

    Those last studies are looking good, esp.the hand ones. I guess there's not much to add, just keep it up and draw! And yeah, funfetus is right about Loomis, his books are excellent.

    Nettle_Mountain hi, thanks for dropping by my sb. Funfetus has just recommended you the best books to practice fundamentals. I like your experimenting with colors also.
    You have some very expressive creatures. You have to keep practicing a lot to get the human figure right. Try to post all exercises, someone in the community will take a look and suggest some tips for progress for sure. Keep it up dude.

    I believe you're on the right track, your hands are looking great, you just need some practice in anatomy and you'll see huge improvements!
    Keep it up!

    Real life drawing from a model, 2 minutes per posture. I think the time was too fast for me, i didn't have time to think anatomy in my mind or make conscious notes, only scribbled lines in panic.

    Those little poses on the down right are from the other paper downsized, someone told i should try to uppload all the sketches so i put there few more.
