    Fun sketchbook with the stylations and serious studies. As an advice for head studies: Try to do a couple of self portraits, you'll learn as well much from your own face or ask someone else to pose. I don't know if you're doing this, since I don't see any portraits from life only from photo's you mention (I don't post portraits from life of other people online then my self that's why).

    again, good stuff!

    studies are coming along nicely.If you wanna do some quick figure studies, check out posemaniacs, its a very useful exercise, and about drawing faces and heads, make sure you get your hands on Burne Hogart's Drawing the Head, explains the whole structure very well

    keep up the good work!

    ciao

    Just draw everyday,everything that you like,plus studying and practicing foundations like anatomy,perspective,proportions,etc =
    and a critique,you draw the head smaller than usual in your figures.And break your figure into simple forms like cylinder,box,sphere to understand it,then add the muscles and any other thing that you like.
    at all,you are doing it very well.see you

    Need your critique

    Do you draw the outline of the body directly? I see almost no sketch lines in those posemaniac drawings. It doesn't help if you think of the body as just lines. I know you try to develop your own style, but you HAVE to be able to draw realism first. Try to see the body as basic volumes, draw it like that first, and then shape it into something more human.

    Try to spend more time on just a drawing or two, get them as realistic and exact as possible, with shadows and details. It seems to me that you work very fast (because you find practice boring? :p) and you don't learn as much as you could from it. If you spend a lot of time on the same drawing, you see the mistakes yourself and learn to correct them. Try this and show us.

    By the way, the dolphin drawings are lovely, and so is the girl (but you really need to learn how to draw feet ). The shadows on her are pretty good, not completely correct but getting there. Post more drunk drawings, I always were a big fan of those.

    Thanks for anyone putting their heads inside here discarding the danger of terminal paralyzing upon gazing my art

    Whitevillage: i like that posetraining too, thanks. And yes, flipper is a dick (damn dolphins)

    Kuutamo: Thanks for coming and critique, there is few things which i disagree with you but on the whole agree.
    I don't draw skeleton inside the posemaniacs pictures when the time limit is 30s, i just don't have time to analyze posture completely, the idea is to draw with right side of the brain and i think it has helped my drawing instincts, the way i feel right lines about posture balance should go when drawing posture from imagination.
    Think about the time of practise, altought there are 200 poses the time used in practise is 1 hour 40 minutes which is not much at all, i think it is worth the effort.

    I haven't forgotten realism and anatomy approach, i have also just gazed random poses on posemaniacs and analyzed postures and drawed skeleton using that as a reference, and i will still do postures from imagination using drawing skeleton structure and studying anatomy book (i have both of burne hogarts)

    But yes, that realistic picture training sound good advice, ill take it and see where it goes, and my feet are terrible, have to do somethnig about it...

    Those bastard dolphins, someone should do something about them (like giving them a medal) and if you seen the one picture where i started to get suspicious about my mental health...

    ooh, I understand now. I didn't see the 30s part before. In that case, it's ok, pretty good actually

    hahaha those drunk drawings are fun dood!
    kudos for putting on paper all those posemaniacs AND for doing some of the fun stuff too

    keep doing those posemaniacs and make sure you do in addition to those some of your own figures in the same "posemaniac" simple style, just to apply what you're learning straight away.Also do some simple anatomy study to see in a bit more detail what shapes build up arms, head, torso whatever, it will surely make your figures even more accurate

    keep sharing!

    ciao!

    hey dude! nice stuff! It's good to see that you are trying different things to find your way. All these gestures are cool as well but I think that you also need to do some really detailed studies, to be able to understand the human figure and just to "see more". So the standard-advice: get a good anatomy book and study,study,study!

    Keep going dude

    Great sketchbook! When starting at the beginning, I could REALLY see your figure drawing improve (the newest gesture and post sketches look great). I'm also really digging that new illustration style your working on. Is that watercolour or ink?

    Good studies -- that's the stuff. Are you doing anything from life? If not, get out there and draw some people! Posemaniacs is alright, but drawing from life is really a different thing altogether. You need that practice of turning a 3D form into lines and shapes -- on a screen, it's already done for you.
    Keep it up!

    ketchook!

    nice going in here. i'm very curious to see your next update with the anatomy studies, you should do more of these. proportions are important too so work on that as well. some of your sketches are really good though, keep it up and you'll be ok.

    Thanks a lot for visiting my sb. appreciate it. I left a reply to your questions there.

    You're making me want to do what you've been doing with the Pose Maniac stuff! Great studies--I don't think I'd get as clean a line in just 30 seconds. Try some more but from imagination and see how many you can do!

    I love the volume of work in here - repetition is the secret to learning. Your extensive pose studies are particularly great.
