    I appreciate seeing people taking a real effort to improve their figure drawing ability. So needless to say, I love what you're doing here. Just keep going at it, you're studying from the best. I just know i'm going to check back here in a week or something and just see massive strides being made. Draw, draw, draw!

    Great to see your efforts. They will pay off! Those perspective thumbs are a great way to try out different ideas in a piece, before you spend hours rendering.

    Nicce job on those poses from imagination, maybe not 100% accurate but they do convince. If you do more of these, which i heartily encourage, try blocking in the face too. It's never too early to learn how to the get the hang of that. And keep doing the Loomis stick figures, i can already see you're gaining a lot from them.

    Salut,
    j'ai pas laissé de messages depuis un certain temps et je te vois travailler comme un dingue...tu es sur strasbourg meme ou dans les environs??? Tu as peut etre des cours du soir de dessin dans une ecole pres de chez toi ??? Je sais plus trop si je t'avais dit mon point de vue la dessus mais le moment ou j'ai le plus progressé c'est quand j'ai pu me confronter a du model vivant avec un prof ( de la vieille école heureusement pour moi , et à coté de ça il y avait pas mal de reflexion que j'ai pu avoir en lisant le forum....).

    Woooo. Great study dude.. Keep it up.. Hey, natural born right brainer comes with a real flaw.. They are so much lazier coz the got the art gift.. Hahahaha.. Kidding.. Everybody has problem with laziness, just needs hard work to change all that.. HAha.. Improve more on ure pencil man.. U got talent.. Strokes are a crucial part of the drawing.. It decides either good or just brilliant. So, strive hard and God bless..
    -Take my LIFE away, and give me my inspiration.. Let my own life fades, but may my drawing skill improve.. I want them all, but i can't be greedy.. I must choose, so i choose you.. My art n Inspiration,GOD-

    Symphony of Inspiration

    The elbow is a bit high up. It should be about the nasel. I know it is bending, but not enough to make that much of a difference.
    keep it up.

    I'm struggling with characters myself. But I tend to go about it like this:

    Basic Shape (silhouette, gesture etc.) > Structure (volumes) > Details

    It looks like you missed the structure part. I can see your gestures and outlines, but there is no sense of volume. This is where you really need to think in terms of 3d shapes. Use cylinders, boxes etc and make sure you draw centre lines and lines that wrap around forms. This will give you a more 3d approach, and it will feel more like a sculpting process.

    The same process used for the figure can be used on the armour and accessories. Create a new layer on top of the figure and experiment with big shapes before drawing specific shields and plates. Do your best to work big to small, even for complex stuff like armour, it will make everything more unified. Keep loads of armour references and quickly flick through them, draw a little and look at them again. Make use of short term memory to use reference to design rather than directly copy.

    Anyway, I'm no expert. Hopefully this will help a little but I feel out of place giving lectures

    Fraz : thanks dude, nice to see you again Yeah, i have some difficulties with the elbow, and when it sucks, all the arm looks weird Hope that next time, you will join us on a thunderdome

    Man Made God : thanks dude! your advice is great ! yeah, i missed the "basic shapes" part, i think loomis teach that, but if he doesn't, i'll study from Kevin Chen ! Anyway, thanks for your help !

    Well, here are some stuff, my first bargue study ( pretty hard, i'm afraid to continu lol ) did my sp ( damn, it looks like i'm always doing the same mistakes, it's been a while that i didn't improve, the only good thing is that i improved in rendering, itried to render the ear, to test, and it looks quite good ) some hands which looks bad, and enviros, were i was focusing on doing good perspective ! I'm also doing a digital painting of a complex scene, i was pissed of to always do simple object, so i tryed harder stuff. at the beginning it was a speed painting, but i thank that it will be good to do it accurately, so there are some mistakes, with the foregrund car, and the right part looks too blury, but i think i managed to create depth and voume ! have to work harder ! I was too lazy to scan stuff on my moleskin sketchbook, so it will be for the next time !

    i would like to point out that your sign thing is to low, would recommend fixing it before continuing.

    btw i think its the size that makes it look that its to low, and the perspective is also a bit off on the sign if you look at your reference.
    My observational skills may be great but I said nothing about my drawing skills
