    Horsies!! My arch-nemesis!!

    You're making them necks a bit too long. Try blocking them from photo, get the proportions fixed in your head, and then the flow of movement.

    Then play with the range of races available, from the Breton to the Icelandic, and see what comes out

    Was great to meet you in person btw

    Thanks, and it was lovely meeting you too. Yeah, they do seem to be turning into the loch ness monster on some of them. I'll keep the neck think in mind.

    Quick doodle from head. It's been ages since I did a head from imagination. Got bored with the hair.

    Pretty nicely done portrait, especially from imagination. I can see why you'd get bored with the hair, since there is so much detail in there already.

    The horses look pretty good. Do you recall what kind you were drawing? I know that different breeds (?) have different proportions, and I have to kick myself to remember that.

    good sketch's , do more of them , proportions are a bit off , pay attention to shapes more , no need to force yourself to shading , its better to keep it simple with good line quality , then later on continue on with shading , you have grounded your drawings nicely .

    Did some more on it. Whether I do any more to it or start another one depends on how I feel tomorrow.

    I really like the still life! The resemblance of the material and yet the nice variation
    is dynamic in a nice way. Hope you will work some more on this, but it already looks quite
    retouched. Overall great job!

    Wow, love that last still life. Is it pastel? Watch out for the elipses though. Some of the openings don't match the rest of the tin.

    Your horses are cool, a great start. If it helps, I try to break them down into specific shapes - head, neck, shoulders, ribcage and hindquarters. Then the legs. There's also general proportions for length of leg compared to body etc, but I cant remember what they are. Anyway, you can use the measurements of whatever horse you're drawing and use those.

    Good luck with them and I hope you do more. They're lovely animals to draw.

    I like the expression you captured on the nude male studies. The flailing bone arm study made me laugh.
    Make a sketchbook happy, feed it a tip to improve!

    Good stuff!
    The forms in the under-drawing don't look correctly defined: the ellipses could be cleaner and in better perspective. The middle right one has sharp points sticking out of it and should be smoother. All of them could be constructed better, perhaps by using a rectangle and cutting away at it to form the ellipse -- that way you know everything is in correct perspective.

    Thanks. I'll probably do that on the next version. I'm planning a series of them.

    Finished a quick study I started ages ago.Oil on canvas board.
