I love your anatomy studies, how long did you spend on your studies of the leg and the leg muscle sketches? Those sketches help me quite a bit.
Something that i learned is to venture into another styles, study more of another drawing style. I do see a very strong anime/cartoon type style.
And the link helped me out a ton, i'm still actually looking at them, i just took a break to take a look at your SB."Although nature commences with reason and ends in experience it is necessary for us to do the opposite, that is to commence with experience and from this to proceed to investigate the reason."

Well, you definitely got me beat in the studies department. For the most part everything's pretty good, it's all pretty accurate and shows a lot of promise. You know what you're doing, so I won't say anything =P
You're the opposite of me though - I do too many pictures from imagination and not enough studies, while you do too many studies and not enough pictures from imagination. I'd love to see some stuff from your crazy mind.
Now go doodle.

@The man with no name:
thanks a lot! And I surely will! (once work is over... goddamned thing...)
thanks for the link and encouragement! Yes, I have improved a little I guess, but not nearly as much as I could have. I look forward to going to university, I hope the drive of the class will be... eh... a LITTLE more motivational than my former one.
And oh, I WILL study facial features more! Like Morte said, my style is way to... animé... and I'm trying to get rid of that.
NOW YOU GO BACK TO DRAWING!
oh yes, it will! I will do PLENTY more than these. I still haven't gotten rid of my bad habits yet...
thank you! How much time I spend is really depending on what I draw and HOW I draw it. If I'm drawing to really learn how things work, it can take a hell of a time, while some only take from two to ten minutes. On these, I spent 5-12 minutes on the human sketches, and... uh... actually, I have no idea about the other stuff. I don't really keep track of time, except for my breaks (so my arm won't completely shrivel and die, the useless thing).
Ouch! You kicked me right in my art nuts. Yes, my style is very anime-ish... a terrible habit I picked up after four years of "IMMA BE THE BEST ANIMU ARTIST EVAAAAAAAAAR" and "IMMA BE A MANGA-KA WHEN I GROW UP DESU DESU DESU DESU". I still feel it's horrid grip on me... Nothing wrong with anime, by all means, but I want to learn realism and work from there.
And yes, that link was really good!
Thanks a lot! I do actually draw a lot from my head, but... eh... lacking a visual library, my doodles tend to... kinda... a little... look like cow diarrhea. Also, I had it lurking in my head for a while that CA wasn't really that interested in my mindfarts, seeing as they too tend to be like a cow's former breakfast. I'll try to get some stuff up, though it's not nearly as awesome as yours.
So yeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaah. My arm's apparently hating the sh*t out of me. Working at the cashier's stand doesn't help much. Five to nine hours of work, one hour each way to travel, family stuff, university stuff... things have been a little hectic lately. And will continue to be for a while. Most of these are drawn at work, while listening to the CA online classes or while being our with my family.
Well! Only two weeks and I'll be spending time with my girlfriend in Oslo for almost three weeks. This meaning: I can draw like crazy while she's at school. STRIKE!
Also, I won a 1,500 GBP scholarship for my good high school grades. DOUBLE!
Oh, and I've got a sketchbook support group now! TURKEY!!!
some of these are (loosely) drawn from stock-photos, second one is doodles from master works, some are from life and some are from my head and all look like donkey poo. )8<
GIVE ME SOME YEARS WILL YA

*gives you some years*
I love this new stuff, especially that one of the zombie dude eating his arm. It's got a nice feel to it that your others are lacking. And the studies are looking better too, although still a little wonky. Keep it up! And the rest of CA might not be interested in your brainfarts, but I am. I love stuff from imagination. (but you probably already knew that) So don't stop. Ever. o.o

Haha, yes sir!
This last lot is great! I agree with Lionsword, the zombie is coool, and it brought a smile to my face when I saw the heart as he is eating his own arm. The things from your imagination are definately improving, so are your studies! I'd write a longer crit for you, but I have to go very soon. Ya! Having a SSG roooocks, you are all awesome!
Keep up the good work, Monkey!
August 28th, 2009 #82
Thanks! Yes, you're right, they're wonky, and one of my major problems is getting some feelings into my drawings. Simply because I don't dare to! I see how the anatomy is wonky and that I don't have reference; BAM, time for "generic pose-o-matic"! But now I have you guys to tell me to get off boring. Boring is addictive, but I can get off it!
thank you! It means a lot! And I like your sketchbook, so you just got a subscriber as well.
Thank you! I kinda miss doing studies, though. I really notice how it's easier to draw from imagination after some hours with studies. And yes, the SSG is really helping me draw now! GO GO POWER... artist?
Another day, another eight hour workday with two hours of travel. As well as some bank issues.
Well, as I said to Spirit, I sure miss my studies. )8 The shittiness of these is unbelieveable. I STUDIED LEGS. WHY WON'T THEY BE DRAWN?!
I found out that I have HUGE problems with seeing a pose in my mind. Know what that means? Gesture drawings tomorrow! And construction!
Well, I work tomorrow as well as Sunday, so I'll do what I can. At least I have the day off Monday.
I do from now on dedicate all my failures to Spirit, because she inspired me to submit even that which looks like Chernobyl-kitty-victims.
August 28th, 2009 #83
Hehehee, I'm glad that I inspired you to post everything up! You'll get even more help that way, and your conifence so to speak will improve We're still learning, afterall!
Ya, every since joinging the SSG I've noticed my drive has improved and I just want to draw more, which I should do I like the zombie girl, the bite out of her arm made me smile... I like zombies too much I think!
Are those life drawing I spy? They are gooood, how long did it take you to do them? It's good to see you working in pen too, a variety of media will help you and expand what effects you can achieve (I should do this too). Well, if you miss the studies, do some of them along with things from life/imagination. What harm could it do, make you better at art?
August 28th, 2009 #84
woah.. i swear i saw the improvement on this sketchbook.. keep that hardworking.. ur doing great dude..
August 28th, 2009 #85
i'm digging the life drawings, great job! Very inspiring!!!
I'll work my hardest!!! ><"Although nature commences with reason and ends in experience it is necessary for us to do the opposite, that is to commence with experience and from this to proceed to investigate the reason."

Yeah, I really feel driven now... like there are someone waiting for me to get my ass in gear and submit something.
Zombies are AWESOME! I really look forward to getting the skull and skeleton down properly so I can move on to muscles. When muscles and skeletal structure is down, I'll be able to make some pretty damn RAD zombies!
And hm, you're right, some studies would be great to do as well... Well, I dub next week "hand week", in honour of these fine-tuned instruments that make art possible, but are a pain in the bottom to draw. I will draw at least three hands every day, and I suggest you other people do too!
haha, thank you! I'm kind of pissed off, though. If I hadn't been such a lazyass, I would've been a LOT better than I am today. But I will get my lazy cured for sure!
Thank you! And you better do!
Just some doodles and a page of life doodahs. WAY tired, getting up at five tomorrow. )8
Well, at least when I'm done at the doctor's I'll have the rest of the day off. Sadly I promised a friend a comic, so my day will prolly be spent doing that rather than making CA-related art.
And no, I won't upload the comic here. It will have a bad case of the gays. >|D
August 30th, 2009 #87
Aww, I hate getting up early too and I hope everything goes well at the doctors! Any drawing is better than no drawing, so well done on doing something even though you are tired, and doing life drawing is even better! I agree on the zombies too and yay, Morte is alive! The evil smile on the girls face in the last picture is great!
Have fun with the comic if you do decide to do it, I'm sure your friend will love it! Hand week sounds like a great idea too... I can;t wait to see the results of that! I may do that on a different subject, I'll have to see. Keep up the good work

You know, I don't see why you shouldn't keep that anime-ish face style. It works really well with your style, and it feels genuine. You could have one hell of an attractive style if you nurture it. Just my two cents.
I really like that girl with the antlers, it's a great concept. Good stuff all around =) Although all the words beside the pictures are very distracting. Makes me want to beat up them words in a dark corner, y'know?

Yo, checking in because i had a bit of time on my hands and I randomly saw some post from you in the lounge.
I see that you're still more or less constantly chewing out work, which is great! After all, i heard it's the most important step to becoming a great artist. Your scetches are also quite imaginative and you seem to handle values well in terms of putting up interesting lighting conditions.
Your figures could use some improvement though. You're mainly drawing female characters which maybe because you want to dodge anatomy since women supposedly aren't that muscular. But in fact, they look wrong also, because Females have exacly the same muscles as males only they vary in proportions and size. Also, your faces are all for the most part without emotion as are your gestures. If you draw down a figure it may be beneficial to think about what this person is actually doing to make a more believable character. Also, if he's just posin, he's actually doing something and he or she should radiate with character.
Next thing is the most important though. FORM!!!! You're not getting it right at the moment. What you're drawing are objects in space and should be treated as such. Use your hatching to fold around the form like a batch of strings. If you want to train that, do exercise of simple geometry, Cubes, Spheres and such and try to make them 3D. Also, copying from photos will only worsen your bad hatching habit atm. Since you are treating photos and the stuff on them as flat surfaces so are your drawings, at this point that can be dangerous I saw a lot of artists dwelving on that for years and becoming the ultimate crosshatch-renderers and masters of tone and such, but they still make everything flat and won't go back to drawing from real life because they have been consumed by their comort zone.
Don't get consumed by your comfort zone.-
