    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.

Let us consider obstacles as something to be expected in any endeavor; then they won't seem quite so insurmountable or so defeating." - Andrew Loomis

    Thank you very much everyone for the comments.

    E.Silva: I really must do some more heads from Loomis, I will just keep on practicing them, thanks.
    EvilBunny: Yeah, I just noticed that after I've scanned it, thanks for the feedback and support.
    Ex Nihilo: Yeah, Loomis is a really great choice to a beginner like me (so they say), thanks, I'll try to keep on posting.
    Nezumi Works:Thanks, I must keep on practicing to see if I can improve, well... we all must. Thank you for the support.

    Some muscle studies from Loomis.
