    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"

    Hey, cool designs for the challenge! ANd The last environments look good.
    It's simplistic but communicates well.

    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.
