    Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook

    Two words, "line quality."

    Try to spend less time "hedging" or sketching the line along and instead try to do the same thing with one confident line.

    There was a link i was going to give you but it looks like the site is down.

    I'll give it to you if it comes back up.

    Hey I haven't forgotten your loomis book. I just got my computer back. So PM me today to remind and I'll get it to you tonight or tommorow. Sorry for the wait! And I see MUCH improvement since the first page! Great job!

    Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.

    Good work on your posemaniacs studies just keep at them and you will get it.

    I would recommend you to try messing up your workflow on them some time. Right now it seems as you only try to draw the contours of the poses and get everything down that way, which might be unnecessarily hard. When I draw poses I usually start out with a stick figure where I lay down the shape of the head, the angle of the shoulders, the angle of the hips and the direction and length of legs and arms and then build my shape around that. That make's it possible to finish the drawing even after my unknowingly model has moved. I've seen other artists who start with putting it all down as boxes and spheres or by drawing the lines of tension/movement. What ever works for the individual is the right way to go, but from time to time it's really fun to try another approach to the human figure, and besides you can learn a lot from it. Keep the sketches comming!

    It works, trust me I remember saying something very similar myself not so long ago And try to remain neutral about all work, if you feel happy about a piece of work, then you're bound to feel sad/angry about another. Keep it up buddy.

    Bigfoot, you shouldn't beat yourself up about not making the deadline. It's for fun & games right? What's important is that you keep working and find a way to beat your frustration. I think those frustrations are an artist's worst enemy; so don't let 'em get to ya!
    I like how you tried to construct your figure, but you still need to obtain a better understanding of how the bones and muscles work. It's a drill, but you will be the better for it. Apart from Loomis, i'd try finding something by George Bridgman too to study from. Very good for learning the basic shapes of the human body.

    keep on practising and you'll do fine. More anatomy studies and facial studies will make ya good.
    My observational skills may be great but I said nothing about my drawing skills

    They're good, but make sure you do this daily. Your lines are flowing, but they almost seem shaky, try and express confidence, and really look at the muscles on the model. I guess I'm going to have to take the liberty of shooting you in the leg though for not doing that last 5 lol. Oh yeah, could you PM me about this challenge you're doing. Thanks and keep it up
