    I see lots of gesture drawings, which is good since gesture is probably the most important thing about figure drawing. Keep doing them. And keep doing anatomy studies too, of course. It's seems you already have Loomis and Bridgman, so you'll find everything you need to know about anatomy in those books (although it's good to try different books once in awhile).

    And very important: draw more from life! I think I say this in 9 out of 10 of my comments in other people's sketchbooks, but it's worth repeating.

    Keep posting

    Welcome to CA! Pantless wanderer is right (huh, never thought I’d find myself writing that phrase), these studies you’re doing are great but it never hurts to go out and draw something sitting right in front of you. Even if it’s just your mailbox or a salt shaker you’ll find you learn something. I need to do that more too.

    Keep posting.

    Thank you, I will try to do that, I'm hoping to do a digital still life each day, starting with an apple, although my first try looked more like a red blob of some sort, really don't get how to "blend" or whatever its called, well, practice makes perfect=)

    Did a quick studie of bumskees apple from the digipaint thread of his, just to see if i could learn a bit of the blending technique, think i got a bit more now, next time i will try with my own apple!

    Did another quicke starting with bumskees outline, this time in painter, this is kinda fun, although they dont look much like real apples, hehe. Think i need to do a longer studie on the next one, really look at colors and values.

    Excellent! Bumskee’s work is crazy inspirational. Moving on to your own apple is a very good idea. On the quick painter sketch, watch out for all-the-same-brush-smooshiness (if that makes any sense).
