    MSilva's sketchbook (Now with nudity)

    First post around, although I've been around for sometime now.
    I have some real anatomy problems in most of my drawings, so I decided to start doing some studys.

    So here are some eye studys, human arm study and a quick gorilla... study.


    Any critics and/or suggestions are mostly welcome.

    Nice start. Anatomy, life drawing, and just careful observation will take you a long way.

    Gorillas are fun to draw, aren't they? Keep it up.

    Thanks a lot Ex Nihilo.

    Gorillas have that special look that makes you want to draw them, their big teeth and facial expressions.

    I've been reading some of Andrew Loomis books.
    I still feel like I'm not getting better... I got to keep practising.

    Nail On Head! I had to fill a whole sketchbook with loomis heads before I could discern any visible difference, and even then it was a fairly small advancement. Practice, and then do some practice, and then a little more practice. And so on. Even if you don't feel like it, you will be improving. Good luck!

    The front view head with the planes seem a little too long to me. Keep drawing and doing studies and you'll improve, even if you don't think so.

    Loomis! Great choice. I need to start drawing more from those books myself.
    Noses are looking good. Keep posting.

    I know what you mean about not improving. I started drawing a little less than two years ago, and in some ways it seems like there's been no change at all in all that time. But I guess there has been, and I'm going back to basics, like way back to basics, to see if I can't make some real progress for a change.

    The stuff you're posting looks like you're definitely heading in the right direction. The hands and noses look pretty good.

    A skull study from Loomis and my own hand, because as someone I know said, "when you don't know what to draw, they are always there".

    Critics and comments are welcome.

    Some more eye studys, from Loomis books, I think these look better than the previous ones, and some lip studies from Loomis aswell.
