    Broken Doodles

    I'm 23 and i'm having a 1/3rd way through life crysis because i'm not good at anything. In all aspects of life i'm avarage at best and i wish to change this. Recently I have started working harder on many things like my career in web developement, cooking skills, physical health and fitness, also my drawing, photography and artistic skills.

    I started this sketchbook like 4 years ago but only made a few posts in it, I started drawing again this year (2012) and want to start drawing seriously. I have seen people in this forum who have progressed from almost zero skill to a jaw droping level in about 5 years due to persistance, I'm hoping that if i make drawing a habbit i might get to an acceptable level in a simmilar time frame.

    Not sure what to say about the others but the sketch of the foot, first post, caught my eye the most and I favor only that one out of all the rest, IMO.

    major bump.

    i have been drawing since my last post (though only about 1-2 hours a week)and i dont think i have improved much.

    here are some posemaniacs (60 and 90 seconds),drawings from imagination and drawings from photos on the internet.these are all from the last 5-6 days

    my next post will probably be sometime next year lol.

    It is always good to put your content online to help yourself improve.

    Firstly I reccomend you start with with a book like Loomis or Rockman.
    Your anatomy figures are a bit off in both placement and proportion and these books will definitely aid you.

    I shall be carefully observing your progress

    Try drawing figures from life, and try to draw the entire figure, think about the proportions (e.g how many heads tall is this figure? where is the weight of the figure balanced?) Check out Loomis and Bridgeman too, as Kino mentioned in an earlier post.

    Keep going, there is improvement from your first post

    Cheers, I got a couple of Loomis and Bridgeman PDF's (I tried some Bridgeman style anatomy in post #19).

    drawing figures (people) from life is a little difficult though, nearly every situation i'm around other people I have stuff to do, and bringing my sketchbook to the pub would get me laughed at. I tend to draw in the evenings when i'm by myself.

    Heh, your "y u no" meme made me laugh, thanks for that ^^ I can relate very well. Also to the 1/3 life crisis. I feel very old in comparison to all those 18 year old who are really good at what they are doing (like drawing)...

    Good to hear you got yourself some Loomis and Bridgman books - I'd also suggest to get one for figure drawing from Michael Hampton. And the most important thing - sit down and draw and learn from them a lot!

    Good luck with your studies!

    Very nice! Your figure drawings are really nice and the bodies are realistic. The only tip I have is that you should maybe add a little more detail to the character faces, as you've done with the bodies. I don't know, the reason for this could be that you wanted the viewer to focus on the body more. If so, then more power to you! Good stuff ^^.
