    Practice makes Perfect

    18 years old from melbourne Australia, I'm making this sb mainly to force myself to draw more often and more consistantly. I would like to learn more about drawing human anatomy and i've taken most of my references from Bridgeman and Loomis' books on figure drawing. Anyway I've finally made a start after lurking for ages, hope to bring you some more interesting work in the not too distant future.

    And if you see any anatomy that is off please tell me so I can fix my mistakes it would be greatly appreciated.

    You are heading towards right direction. You had made study od basic skeleton structure, and it is good start.

    Did you used photographs as reference?

    Hi DoktorNo, thanks for posting. Most of the figures are from two books I have, Brigman's complete guide to drawing from life and Andrew Loomis: Figure drawing for all it's worth. There are also some random poses from photo's or other drawings as well and a few poses from memory. It's all very mixed and matched.

    good work,

    but you asked to say if anything wan't anomical ok.
    I don't feel zo right about the lady sitting on the bottom of the page. the portoprtions aren't correct i think. Or she's just differend (i use that excuse to defend me against corrections from my art teacher). Keep going. Those are perfect studies.

    Sebastian

    nice work, going through right path by follwing bridgeman & loomis book.
    My only advice for you would be try to draw line as less as possible(like Bridgeman). its a little busy right now with lots of lines. Try to erase the unwanted/wrong lines!
    try to memorize anotomy proportion,(that's helps u when you draw your next sketch)

    Keep it up and practicing and you'll be good in no time!

    really nice work so far. I will say I think the far bottom left man the proportions seem a little off.

    looking forward to seeing more

    Wow, for some of your first posted studies, these are damn good. Stop by mine and check out my studies, because like you, I'm also studying loomis. I'd like to see where our sketchbooks go
