It can't rain all the time...
One of these days I hope to be as good as all the awesome artists I see on this site- I'm not even close but I'll keep trying and trying! Any help (advice or crits) would be greatly appreciated!

Wow, it's been a long time since I posted anything here! I started going to figure drawing (yaaaay figure drawing ) so I have a backlog of stuff to post. I guess I'll start with the oldest (that I can find anyway) and post in batches. Don't know how much improvement there's been, but it's been lots of fun and I've experimented a little bit.
These first ones are boring as crap though lol

Another boring batch.

Another batch. Trying some new mediums. Much more fun than graphite alone.

Hmmm, these last two didn't make it into the last post.

Aaaand another batch.

Hey fox ,great figure drawings ,in each medium ,and I like the Female Sith lord too ,gives a nice feeling .I'll try to be helpfull by saying that the leg seems a bit flat ,and the lower body doesn't seem fully "attached" to the uppder body.In spite of that,the drawing is good and I like it ,you should pay more attention to anatomy and could try to be more carefull with the details and keep improving ,you could try posemaniacs site .Hope this helps ,good tidings and drawings!
Please visit , comment , critique and have a chat with me

Rostas: thanks!! You're right, I do have to work on my anatomy. It's something that I'm constantly studying and struggling with- but hopefully one day I'll get the hang of it!
Once again I've gone way too long between updates and now I have a big backlog of stuff. Sooo... heres a bunch of random figure drawing stuff. The pen sketches are from 1-5 minute poses, and the ones on toned paper are from the longer poses: usually about 1-1 1/2 hours.

Sorry to be a spammer, but here's a few more things.
We've got a couple crap-happy speedpaints, a chow (that I didn't quiiiiite finish well enough but still entered), and more figure drawing. This one is from the long pose, where he have two sessions with the same pose for a total of 5 hours. I used acrylics! Fun, fun.

I can see improvement already!
I would reccomend focusing a bit more time on the shadow shapes. Go ahead and draw the shadow shapes just like you do the outline of the figure. It will help solidify the drawings and give them more volume. Keep it up

Ging: thanks! I think the drawings on toned paper lose a lot when I scan them- that colored pencil doesn't show up as much which may account for the weakness of the shadows (they seem stronger in person) but I will try to pay more attention to them as well!
Heres some anatomy studies and a speedpaint. I need to get back into some more spontaneous and creative sketching - but I actually really enjoy the anatomy studies (and lord knows I need to work on my anatomy lol)

Even moooore figure drawing! I've been slacking way off on drawing/painting anything else- but lately I've been distracted by sculpting. Clay is fun! No pictures of my sculpting attempts yet though.
