    Smuckers or even smuckler if you prefer

    After a shameful 6 months of not touching a pad.. and a horrid curse of tendonitis taking away music time.. my love for the pencil is back and stronger than ever

    My progress a month in so far..

    humble beginnings - a whole buncha photo references

    some pretty awful faces from imagination and that jerk is back again

    Smuckers or even smuckler if you preferSmuckers or even smuckler if you prefer

    at this point i decided to cut down on chicken scratching and be more honest and definite with my lines, shapes seemed to turn out better shortly after

    Smuckers or even smuckler if you preferSmuckers or even smuckler if you prefer
    Smuckers or even smuckler if you preferSmuckers or even smuckler if you prefer

    this is where i decided to do some major head-study, with loomis's ghostly spirit by my side i ventured forth

    Smuckers or even smuckler if you preferSmuckers or even smuckler if you prefer

    i quickly learned i was having trouble drawing the sphere shape correctly, now remembering to visualise orbiting a centre point

    Smuckers or even smuckler if you preferSmuckers or even smuckler if you prefer
    Smuckers or even smuckler if you preferSmuckers or even smuckler if you prefer

    taking vippus excercises under my belt i consider this point to be a major breakthrough in thinking and practicing with more volume.. look at all them blobs

    Smuckers or even smuckler if you preferSmuckers or even smuckler if you prefer
    Smuckers or even smuckler if you preferSmuckers or even smuckler if you prefer

    my lines and shapes seemed to be improving, after the study and excercises

    Smuckers or even smuckler if you preferSmuckers or even smuckler if you prefer
    Smuckers or even smuckler if you prefer

    this was a good point too, these face references were done with all i had learned in mind, a noticebly easier and more natural placement of features

    Smuckers or even smuckler if you preferSmuckers or even smuckler if you prefer
    Smuckers or even smuckler if you preferSmuckers or even smuckler if you prefer

    plenty of stuff from imagination being attempted now

    Smuckers or even smuckler if you preferSmuckers or even smuckler if you prefer
    Smuckers or even smuckler if you preferSmuckers or even smuckler if you prefer

    decided my eye shapes needed work, face ref and one punk from imagination down left

    some imagination working a little better than before

    phew! Sorry if the amount of book studies i bothered to uploaded are unneccesary.

    so im fairly pleased with my rekindled love for drawing again, and im eager to sketch and post as often as possible to improve... CA has been a big inspiration so i thank everyone here - particularly lilnebos sketchbook and her great progress from humble beginnings- being 19 myself i am trying to make up for lost time.

    I've found so far to be such a great journey so far, its very exciting and i have found so much fascination and interest in studying drawing again.. even mundane day to day observation has become an analysis from an artists perspective..

    all kinds of comments and crits are welcome and encouraged.. cheers

    Nice organic form studies, where did that idea come up?. These drawings are coming along, improving.Keep up the bridgman stuff, you should really push the form to make your characters pop a bit more

    Bridgman and Loomis are good dudes. Keep hanging out with them, but remember to hang out with your immediate environment and draw from life!!! Keep putting in this amount of work on a constant stream and you'll be heinous in no time!

    Only the heart intrinsically noble can succeed...

    Wow! That is a lot of studies. They're all pretty good though! I noticed that some of them were deleted cause photobucket said they were bad. O.o; Nudity? Well anyway, keep up the great work!

    "Looking for critiques! Any help is appreciated."

    Some of them scattered about are from imagination during studies.. you can probably tell by some shaky cheekbones or whack perspective on them.. but gettin there hopefully

    I think photobucket pulled the plug on the nudes that had vauge vagina-like lines gone astray near the crotch.. oh well no big loss

    thanks friends lookin forward to squeezin more out tomorrow

    I like your box studies. It makes me want to start practicing planes in relation to the body. Perspectives doesn't really like me...

    I would really love some honest critiques and improvements suggestions

    I think you should stop concentrating on the pencil anatomy studies for the time being and get yourself some pastels, charcoal or even a stick of plain graphite. You've got all this line but nothing that shows shape, shadow, light or colour! use the wide edge of the pastel/charcoal whichever you choose to get really quick shadows.
    Buy yourself an A3 (or A2 if you can manage it!) drawing pad as well and stick your pencil/pastel on the end of a long stick and see how the drawing works out from there. Go outside with the old DIY brushes and some of the pages stuck together to make a big sheet and go wild with old decorating paint!

    The anatomy stuff is wonderful and your concentration level must be that of a buddhist monks! now go crazy and loose and just make a mess! and then post it up! I know what I've said might not be what you exactly want to hear or do, and it's only a suggestion, but you've been working so hard on the anatomy drawings and getting everything perfectly done, theres a lot more fun to drawing!!!! *sticks your head in the paint can*

    Thanks SaiVix you'll probably enjoy this post then..

    I had been sensing some serious problems with my faces in terms of visualizing them in 3d space, so i decided to go back to the basic block forms and investigate constructing them as precisely as possible using boxes.

    I think it helped clear up some inconsistencies, but you be the judge.

    hey, thanks for stopping by my sketchbook. i found your advice inspiring and i thought i would share a similar one with you in return:

    We all have at least 100000 bad drawings inside of us. The sooner we get them out and onto paper, the sooner we'll get to the good ones buried deep within.

    now, i would just like to say that i love your sketchbook because, better than any other on this site, i can trace your steps of improvement just by scrolling through and looking. you have made major progress. keep up the good work.

    theyre from the bridgman book - constructive anatomy
    its on this list 100s of free art books

    and this is the one im on about Constructive Anatomy

    looking good!, i admire the amount of work your putting in, and the charcoal, delving into areas you may not have been comfortable with
    keep it up

    All these anatomy studies are coming along very well! Good to see you got loose and played around with some blocky figure drawing. That's always a great experience.

    Update..

    After a great load of studies from bridgeman's complete guide which i wont bother posting.. i feel something has clicked with my troubles with the head in 3d space and its planes.

    Letting go of too much brain fueled construction and line placement in my head to make way for more 'feeling out' shapes and sensing planes and forms as bridgeman has spoke about in his guide.

    these photo refs felt more natural and so much less stressful than usual, i see some light at the end of the tunnel after a period of doubt with my head study.

    thanks to all who have commented and helped so far.. i will press on..
