    IanE Thank you for the advice. I think I'm starting to get the idea just not holding as long as I'd like yet still to easy to fall out.

    joseph-fb Thanks.


    Ok so I'm actually taking a stab at the Icarus CHOW. I have absolutely no idea how to tackle the catapult...have to work on that. Also a bit stumped for what the wings should be completely made of. Ah well...at least I started something.

    For the wings, I'd stick with what was available at that time period, and I'd say the most prominently sturdy rig for that kind of application would be very much so like ship sails, maybe combined with some sort of iron work to attach to the body. You'll probably find a lot of info and inspiration by looking here and also here.

    nice cars. You have a gift with faces and human anatomy. Your last sketches look better than the first ones. Practicing has definitely improved. Keep it up!
    I'd rather leave this blank

    IanE Thanks for the reference links...definitely helpful. Great idea about the ship sails too.
    heavyflashThanks for the kind words.
    Black Spot There's a foot! Hehe, thanks.

    Some more scribble updates. Still having a hard time. Head trauma definitely has a negative impact on arting efforts.

    I like the female figure above your big toe. It’s got good dynamic action and form (and no feet). I like the last one down to just past her waist. She actually has the body of a real woman and not some over muscled stick insect. Take the sock off and let’s see your toes.

    Thanks for visiting my sketchbook.

    You have a good start! I think your poses studies look very good. May be, as the other sugested you should try to use clear lines when you sketch.Keep up the good work and btw-don't give up!!!

    Good work! I see a lot of improvement already.

    I would suggest that for the figure studies you concentrate more on the underlying structure, use simple shapes, circles, cylinders whatever works best, instead of concentrating so much on the outline. The outer shape comes /last/. It will help your figuers look more lively. Also try to get a really rough sketch of the entire figure down first, within in the first 30 seconds say, and then move on to the specifics. This way you have a better chance of getting the proportions right.

    Black Spot Thank you. I'll work on more feet soon.

    Kaffinated Confidence is scary...more to come though.

    AgentAlpha Thank you! Yea I'm totally struggling to scrap the sloppy lines.

    Blythe Thank you. I tried messing with that a bit today, not anything I'm willing to share yet though.

    Here's a sketch I did today waiting in a doctors office.

    Hey Hades,

    I would suggest doing some blind contour drawings of the figure. There are many benefits to it despite the final results (which always end up disfigured ).
    Doing blind contours should help you see the form more clearly, as well as build up your hand eye coordination (helping you with your confidence), plus its just plain fun to do.

    Keep at it

    Amazing Action ApeThanks! I actually tried a few blind contours today. Haven't done any since college. Good fun indeed!

    Ok so the first batch of scraps is from last week. Did stuff from The Human Machine, posemaniacs, and a few photos. The second page is some scribble from physical therapy today. So drew the chick from a magazine while waiting, and my hand while covered with heat and ice packs. I'm really struggling to break the bad line habits.

    Here's my scribble for IDW#75 Dream Splicer. I'm not submitting it though. I feel extra awkward with photoshop lately possibly because I've been avoiding it like the plague. I'm pretty terrified of color in general unless I'm oil painting.

    hey hadesdream,
    nice to see that your doing some studies, and the xbox paintings are good, but maybe not good for the xbox lol. oh well, anyways so far your getting an ideal outline of the human anatomy, i would suggest keeping everything to a simple lines than trying to retrace each line. i hoope that helps u in a way. anyways, i like the cars that youve posted, god loves them cars. lol best of luck
