    Most the stuff here is from life, except the tree, and the obvious toon and symbol things.

    EDIT: Third page, awesome.

    Hey nice work here, good to see the studies! I have a problem with the chicken scratch too. To try remedy it, I have been doing a page or 2 a day of gestures studies in pen. I try (and its sooo hard) not to make more than one line. No drawing a line and then scratching another over it(sometimes i do it without even thinking). This helps for making confident linework. Plus cos its gestures they can look like crap - you not really going for masterpieces with them.

    Awesome! You're great at cartoon figures. And it's okay to make messy gestures, as long as those gestures are illustrating the motion of the figure. I think that there is a definite improvement coming along. Don't be too strict on yourself about gestures-- let yourself go, let your lines be fluid with continuous motion so that you're not only drawing the motion of the figure, but you're feeling it too! I'd really, really, really like to see some practices with shading/tones. I've seen some really clean line work from you, but not very many tones. Just a suggestion! Great work, though. Keep at it, draw draw draw!! Get better!

    Your drapery/clothes/folds studies are awesome! Way to take some initiative!

    I would like to see more general anatomy studies that focus you on drawing that is actually in front of you. I think this would help further your style of drawing and give you more depth.

    Try doing some enviroments! Get high-tech, low-tech, steam-punk, natural settings, urban!

    Eep! Oh, those catis soo cool! Are you going to do a comic with that? Would love to see that.
    Good thing to do draperys! Some of the way it falls looks unlogical though in places.
    I don't know if it helps but I always try to imagin where the fabric would stay rigid, wich is cause by something underneath lifting it in one plae and how it then as it gets further away from that spot isn't supported anymore and falls to one side or just flattens out.
    Meaning, most lines are staright and even when they bend the form is not really curvy but consists of shorter strokes.

    Yay drapes! I was thinking of doing such studies as well. ^^ It's looking great, but push the tones (And remind me to do the same). Hope to see some bridgman studies soon too, can't wait to see! Draw more!

    bombchu: Not yet.

    Bridgman's drawings are a little tricky to read occasionally.

    ALSO: The book I got was The Human Machine.

    Haha, how about all the time? His drawings are a little tricky to read but if you let your eye just look at the picture it works. I don't know how, but it does. However I do like that you're taking up your studies. More more more.

    I also like your ONE enviroment...now less Dead Space, MORE DRAWING ENVIROMENTS!

    Nice work there! Maybe try some perspective studies to help with enviros. Photo studies are good too - specially if you dont colour pick em but mix em yourself. One national geographic should probably provide you with a bunch to study

    Tell me about Bridgman!! I misattached the levator scapulae for about half a year before I got Stephen Rogers Peck. Haha.
    Anyway. Bridgman is really more about learning to think in masses and break up the body like that. Volumes, cubes and sphere's more than triangle, circles and so on. (lLOVE Peck btw.)

    That interior IS sweet. Inspires me to do that too, just that I suck az perspective. :/
    Oh, Carl Dobsky to the rescue.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again, Bridgman is real stylistic! But his style is really helpful (I say this now 'cause I stopped being stubborn ) . He somehow teaches fluidity, which I don't think anyone is supposed to be able to teach. It's something you're supposed to come by.. And he also shows you how to break up the human form into shapes, as Digitally said.

    Here's a PDF of his "Complete guide to drawing from life"

    Got back to 30 seconds on Posemaniacs, an arm, some doodles, and remember that thumbnail? Drew up a full pic for an assignment. Needed (some) color, and had to be on 14x17 or bigger. That explains the weird scan.

    Also, I forgot to bring my newsprint to class the other day, so I did the classwork in my sketchbook.


    ...I friggin' hate using traditional coloring tools, especially colored pencils. Also, I probably should start using non-mechanical pencils every once in a while.

    STUDIES HUZZAH!! Good stuff keeping your eye on the prize.

    Your perspective studies are pretty good too. Although your last one with the demon being bored looks a bit weird on the perspective. I don't know how to explain it but hopefully someone more experienced sees what I mean :/

    I think I know what you're talking about. Thing is, I didn't want the room to be a square, more trapezoidal, but still failed at the perspective.

    Hah - fun sketchbook! Seems like you've made some good progress as well.... I'd like to see some more tonal drawings/sketches/boredscribbles...

    Overall- good stuff. Keep it up.

    Aah, very nice, very nice! We've got some progress he'ah! Nice gesturey studies. I agree about the perspective. I think the problem is your lack of shade in some places, and yet a square of shade around your figure. I think that is what skews it. Hope that helps! Keep at it, my friend. Keep pushing out the good works

    Cool updates! Diggin those studies, great variety. I really like the comic dude gesture/pose you got going, just one suggestion - try draw the body as 2 parts with the hips and chest - great way to learn the twist of the body and wiil help towards other figures.
    Keep rockin!

    Hi, thanks for visiting my thread. I took a look over your perspective problems above and made some notes, hope you don't mind (and I hope it helps).

    Your lines are very clean and clear though, just keep chipping away at those fundamentals.
