yeah man i'd agree with voxelfog good, your off to a great start! As boring as it sounds stick to reference pictures, people etc etc and copy them as much as possible. Make referencing your friend. After scribbling a thousand times you're bound to get better =)

Really? For some reason I thought that useing too many photos for refrence (for 2d drawing) would stump you if you did it too much! thanks for getting that cleared up for me guys.

Nice start. However, while using references is great. Do NOT use them 'as much as possible.' Drawing from photos is a good substitute if you don't have access to much life drawing for one reason or another but you should always make room for drawing from your mind. Because at the end of the day, that's where your stuff will come from. Build your skills and memory with references, but these should only be to aid your drawings not to form them.

Vhan, thought I'll stop by and help ya, First I'll start off saying I'll like you samurai. I see your focusing on you anatomy. But I see proportion problems you need to work on. Look at Riven Pheonix vid (seems like he took all his lesson down but you can purchase em). Think of the body in basic shapes, but always, ALWAYS, be aware of proportions when doing them. The more your aware of proportions the easier it comes to you. Also practice proportions using photos will help, be 100 percent aware of them. Using lines, use rulers if you have to. Then move on to gestures and life drawings.

OK, updates comeing soon, nothing too impressive, but enoughf to keep me going. I'm going to go ahdead and drop some of my modeling because when I get to collage I won't be useing lightwave, and I'm gonna have to figure out maya, so I'll be focusing on my drawing now!

Ok, some more of my random work. One page is just some random "goth" oriented things that I just drew to try and get myself more fammilliar with drawing without reference. Same with the wierd "tree house" thing. A charcoal study on male body musles, and that other really cool clean looking one of the samurai armor, yea, thats not mine origionally in case you cant tell i stole that from Soul Caliber
I'm also gonna pose a samurai I have been working on in the crit forum, so if you don't get enoughf criting me here tear me aprart there too!

Thanks for coming by my book. I have to disagree a little bit with Perin. When you're starting out, you should just focus on practicing good "seeing." Take time and just really examine your subject. Only after drawing a ton of poses and human anatomy this way will you eventually be able to draw from your mind - the ultimate goal.
But to get there you have to draw from ref, so use it would be my advice.
For an example of exceedingly good seeing - check out Emily G.'s book. Crazy.

Good "seeing" huh...Yea, I can see that, and my lack of it. BTW, when I was looking at you SB your second picture, the one of the woman. If you happend to get that out of an anatomy book, then we have the same one.
And my drawing of that woman, on the black paper in white pencil, I think THAT is the same picture, and we both drew it...so I can see some major differences in our ability to see...wow...thats awesome...
Edit: its actually the 5th picture, the one were you said "dog ate my SB" Lol.
