    One of the raw sketches I did today. I will practice schading and fabric during the next days. It would be great If anyone could give me some Websites with tutorials on this topic.

    The fabric studies aren't bad at all. Rendering them more would surely help even more, but still great. I would like to see more stuff like this!

    Thank You! I'll try on.
    I think I will go and buy some softer pencils next week. The one I use now, is way too hard.

    Something that was harder to do, than it looks like. But not verry good, though.

    stop posting one image at a time! You can attach as many pictures as you like in one post so you don't bug everyone by bumping your thread constantly. Plus, people tend to respond more if you do it that way.

    nice start though... I can tell your patient which will get you a long way. Reminds me of the stuff I was doing not too long ago. keep it up!

    For the last few weeks I had a lot of stuff to look after. As a result of that, I had not one free minute left to draw. But now that I have some free time, I will start posting again. I figured out, that I still have problems with everybody's darling - hands.
    Here's something I finished a few minutes ago:

    Not a bad start.
    Try looking up the proportions of the face.
    You can search for a PDF of Andrew Loomis' "Drawing the head and hands".
    He gives you all the proportions you need to know.

    Hey there. The first shaded figure doesn't look too bad.

    Personally, I feel that you're relying too much on line to communicate. In the real world, arbitrary outlines do not exist on objects. Try to think of line not as the edge of an object, but a boundary between two different values.

    I recommend reading Andrew Loomis' "Figure Drawing For All It's Worth". It's out of print, but there are free legal downloads available on the internet. Check it out.

    Following your advice to read the Books of Andrew Loomis, I did these studies of heads and faces. Feel free to put these in chronological order.
    I think, it will take me a few days more to learn how to shade correctly.

    Keep it up with Loomis
    It helps a ton

    Dont forget to not only draw it but STUDY it
    Try to incorporate what you learn in the studies to personal work

    very good stuff so far!
    however, it pays off, you made some great improvement
    love tho pose studies, those really do help, i can tell!!

    some advice on your pencils try to loosen up your line. do this by drawing without rising your pen from the paper. and do also some hatching practices!! hatching can look pretty awesome, if done right

    bye

    For this one I used a broader and softer pecil. But my scanner totaly sucks. It swallows many of the lines and details.
    I will practice shading and hatching later on. At first I want to improve my knowledge about anatomy.

    I tried not to copy from Loomis, but to understand the function and construction of head and neck. I'm afraid, that I have to do many, many more.

    Your head studies are really great! Nice job.

    Artists have such a magnificent gift...breathing life into something with just simple lines.
