Hey, everyone. I'm generally pretty happy with my nose in a sketchbook, and spend a nice bit of time there, but since the end of highschool, I don't really get any feedback on anything I draw in it. I'm now halfway through college and a bit frustrated at the lack of ability [and sketchbook crits] I run into when I go to render scenes from my head. So! Any comments and crits are welcome.
To start it off, here are some recent studies, with stupid doodle auras. Attachment 414988Attachment 414993
This is part self portrait and part skull study. It's still unfinished. More updates on that later. Attachment 414997
A quick sketch I did of one of my friends in an attempt to draw from life more often. Attachment 415000
Thanks for lookin'.

Hokay. This is about as finished as this is going to get, spare a few details. Attachment 418747
blenditall: Thanks! Some angles look a bit weird to me too. Most of all the angle that the nose and the nose bone comes out of the skull at in relation to the angle that the cranium has been cut. I'm not sure about it though. It may just look strange.
I did a bit of figure painting to help pull myself out of the minor slump from earlier this week. One's pretty assy. The other a bit less so. The second was done from a photo by mjranum stock . He has some good references and such for anyone looking for some fun stuff to draw or paint by the way. The other was done from a photo from female-anatomy-for-artist.com
Quick figure. Attachment 421311
BadGeometry->Thanks for pointing that out. I ran into a bunch of problems while I was trying to sketch her. Posemaniacs is good fun! I don't have any paintings like you do but I did do a bunch of sketches. There are some wacked out camera angles in there.
Two more 90 minute studies today. One with lots of clothing, and one without. I need work on both, so it seemed like a good idea. Anyways.
First study of somebody clothed. Done from a photo that's part of the series Jakub Fighting series from human-anatomy-for-artist.com Attachment 422109
brentos8: Haha. I'm trying to take some life drawing classes when I can so I can get actual live models to work from but right now I can't. Unless I do an Alex Grey and start painting and drawing myself nude. I definately agree though. I notice it easily when I'm working through classes.
Two more 90min studies again. Today was a slow day in the land of figure painting so they're a bit busted. mjranum stocks used for both.
I've been working through these since the last week of August and taking my time, too. I'm trying to find a middle ground between the diagramatic drawings from anatomy books and a real world use for them in situations where an understanding is really required to work through obstacles such as foreshortening and differing body types, etc. The original versions with skin are out of Sarah Simblet's anatomy for the artist.
The last two are unfinished but will be finished soon I swear!
This is the cleanest of the bunch. The scanner was a bit to small for the print by about half an inch on the bottom and right side so a bit got hacked off. Apologies. Anyways, here's a detail for those interested.
