    Those last studies are beautiful!! Your confidence has gone up and it shows in your lines. Strong, decisive and graceful. Love those contours. You're grooving on the rhythm now, keep on riding.

    excellent bridgeman studies, not everyline has to be connected sometimes and the viewers eyes can fill in or make up what's not there, rather implied line

    Man, you're really pushing it with those gestures drawings. I like that you're also trying to work with paint. Thats awesome!

    The Bridgman's are looking awesome. Keep those coming!! Bridgman helps a shitload!

    Peetaer: Thanks man.
    snootchy: Yeah, I really need to stop going back over every line.
    Eon: Thanks man, you're too kind.

    A small update. I'm trying to do some Vilppu figures (gesture + going over the figure) again, but they ended up quite messy. I's partly due to holding the pencil overhand which gives more loose lines, but I still lack proper control I guess. Also, I did some Bridgman hands.

    bleupencil: Thanks, I'm really trying to keep those lines loose.
    snootchy: Thanks man, for every 50 I do, there are 1 or 2 that aren't half bad. Just have to keep at it.
    Peetaer and grenappels: Thanks guys, I really appreciate it. Have to keep pushing, I've got a lot of catching up to do compared to all you guys and gals.

    The figures I did are pretty bad, have to do a lot more of these and stop slacking. The left drawing of the hand I did overhand, the right one underhand. That's why the right one is clearer.
    The good news is tuesday I start a 10 week course in drawing 101. Hope to learn a lot. Of course I'll be posting my drawings from the class here .

    good stuff dude, good stuff. glad to see your putting a lot of time into studying the figure. vilppu is great. once you get a good grasp on his techniques, just bring a sketchbook somewhere where you see a lot of people and draw them.
    keep it up man

    Well, if you are up for it you could already go out and do some public drawing. It's fun, or at least I like it. It gives some variation to your drawing routines and I've noticed it's important to have some variation to keep art an interesting pursuit. Maybe draw some still lifes too. I don't know, just do what feels good at any given moment! No need to follow some strict guidelines... Although I'm a sucker for studies too. Studies _are_ important though, so a lot of them is always a good thing.

    To sum it up (and note to self): keep things fresh.

    Sweet! Thats good news! Taking those classes will boost your illustration IQ big time!

    You're definitely showing improvement. Your figures do show some awkwardness in these poses but, remember, you're also drawing more sophisticated figures than you were in the past which means you're at a higher level than before. Just keep going man.

    I'm sure you'll ace that Drawing 101 class, you've got the mindset and dedication to do so. Can't wait till those 10 weeks are past so that we can all come back in here and have a good laugh at how much you've progressed! Proof? Look how you're already tackling some difficult hand studies! Cheers!

    Small update. All image sizes have been reduced to 40 or 50% to reduce scrolling/loading. Last two are from my moleskine, all are from observation.

    Those still life sketches are pretty decent, don't let yourself slip into another big brake, keep going For that self portrait, try to draw your eyebrows more like.. eyebrows, at the momenth they look little bit like black stickers sticked in your head, try to shade your lips more, that will make them look less flat. The left ear looks ok, but the right one looks wierd compared to the other.

    http://www.portrait-artist.org/

    That site helped me quite a lot for self portraits, but i'm an amateur, so I can't suggest more sufficient sources.

    Keep working.

    studies are looking good - that's definitely the way to go forward! keep at it and dont look back. it will pay dividends in the long term if you can get a solid figure study habit going on.

    good stuff - i look forward to see more!

    spark_zero: Thanks for the link man, it helped me a lot.
    cw: Thanks man. Drawing from life definitely isn't easy, but as you say it's the way to go.
    Taneli: Hey man, you haven't been slacking as well? Feed your SB

    Did a new selfportrait, this time I followed some guidelines from a website (http://www.portrait-artist.org/) and took my time with it. Despite a lot of errors (ears, eyes etc), a clear improvement over my previous attempts. Didn't put much shading/texture, will try to do it in my next one after I read up more on that stuff.

    Looks like the guidelines helped a lot!

    I burned out recently doing my workshifts and drawing after and before work. I didn't draw at all between March and May but now that I'm unemployed, I'm burning through pages again. And man, it feels good! I don't want to update my sketchbook at the moment, I'll do it much later when I have something cool to show. I might change my mind though...

    Just feeding my sketchbook with a small update. I've been busy with exams the past weeks, so not much time spent on drawing. Going to be drawing more coming week to catch up .

    I drew my foot and my hand and one person from a bookstore. I have found drawing people in public inconspicuously quite hard, probably because of the fear that they might actually walk up to me and ask to see my (crappy) drawings :-p . Maybe I should go to a coffee shop or something, where I'd attrack less attention. Any tips on this are welcome.

    I bought a fineliner after getting some advice on how to improve my linequality (draw with e.g. a fineliner and draw BIG). I hope to get some A3 paper soon so I can draw bigger. I've been doing some excercises like drawing cubes etc. So far I like it quite a lot, but I'll also keep on drawing with a pencil. Just drew some random stuff in my room and did some gestures.

    Did a selfportret with a fineliner. Doesn't look like me at all :-p, but still a nice try.

    Nice studies dude! It's really great to see how many you do. But don't be afraid to take you skills for a walk every once and a while, and just draw something from the imagination/for fun. This will help you figure out how well you know things versus how well you think you know them.

    Keep drawing! You're getting it!

    Sublimus: Thanks man. Yeah, I should put my creative muscles to the test and utilize what I've learned so far.

    Some gestures and a spray bottle thingy. I went to a museum today with a friend to see some paintings. Saw some great stuff of Rembrandt, Durer, Rubens, Monet, van Gogh and many others. Was especially amazed by some very detailed sketches. It definitely inspired me.
