    Nice start. The first and last pictures are really nicely detailed.
    I'd recommend doing more studies of the face. I find that the more you draw, the more you get the hang of it.

    Can't wait to see more from you.

    Here's some tiny micromini more

    plus an anatomy study of the deltoid muscle (you can see the rest from the "series" in my ebook (see sig))


    I'm also doing these 45 second studies of the human body from the posemaniacs website, there's lots of pages of poses so it'll take a while to scan, upload etc.

    till tomorrow

    it's tomorrow already, so here's the update

    sorry about the massive image - its the 45 second drawings I was talking about before.
    I do these twice a day, about 20 mins per A4 page.
    I think I've improved a tiny bit, need to do more of them - to fill up the entire sketchbook.

    also my other daily drawing: human anatomy, this time brachialis and biceps.

    I suggest you to stop painting heads with all it's features, first of all try to draw the basic forms (don't know what source you use for studing heads) while it will be a really close to original. As it's written in Loomis books, patience is the key to succses. So pick your pencils and draw! It really helps.
    and keep sharing your stuff.

    andrea.bianco:
    Drawing insects is very fascinating. I drew those without magnification, unless you count a pile of books magnification. I was gonna draw a shield bug, but it was too small I think, and starting to crumble a bit.

    Mr.Juicy:
    Thanks, I did have a brief go at drawing featureless heads from spheres and still use that technique. However I'll take your advice and draw some more mannequin-esque heads. Plus I'll get my hands on some Loomis, Bridgman, and / or Hogarth books in the January sales I think.


    Here are some more anatomy drawings, I've got a new weekend project on the go: painting my dog in acrylics. I'll be back to head studies and more of these during the week.

    Hey your insect studies are amazing. You seem really good at rendering and drawing what you see, so just keep at them anatomy studies and you'll be drawing humans in no time.

    Your linework on the muscle fibers is really beautiful and effective!

    On heads I think you have a tendency to shrink the back of the skull a little.

    Your sketchbook is looking very good, thanks for sharing these drawings.

    Meilin:
    Thanks, hopefully I can draw more of them during next spring/summer

    PsiBug:
    I really need to focus on the head more, I'm thinking of drawing skulls at different angles - thanks for the advice

    Here's the next update, terrrible planning with the axilla study yesterday... I just rushed in without measuring angles with a tiny pencil, so today with the lower arm study I used my mechanical pencil... Gonna keep using it I think.

    The anatomy, and life drawing are very cool however You must practise more with face studies. But I'm sure You will make it.Keep going.

    The insects are awesome and the anatomy studies look really clean and good. What kind of pencils do you use? I use normal HB-B & mechanical pencils and my studies are all dirty. :@ Guess I just use them wrong.

    The faces need some work though but I'm sure you'll learn in no time.

    Ay, more drawing of the heads - I need to get quicker too, thanks for the
    encouragment

    Arbinn
    Hey thanks. For materials I use a 0.5mm HB mechanical pencil, a rubber
    pencil thing plus a soft rubber. Yeppo, more facial studies to come.

    Nettle_Mountain
    Thanks, I'll try that out


    And here's yet another update. First are more of the usual anatomy
    studies (the book is focusing on the arm currently).
    Next are some face studies from this tutorial.
    As you can see this page has horrible line enconomy and is entirely from
    ref, but I'll produce these with different angles hopefully, in combination
    with quick line studies from mags. Thats the idea anyway.

    Large update this time.

    Heres the lower arm with its multitude of muscles and the posterior border of the Ulna when the arm is supinated and pronated.

    I also painted my dog Harry on A3 in acrylics, the reference should be below it. The bricks are all off and his snout and closer leg is too thin, however I think the colours are ok.

    So no facial studies - think I'm gonna do some of those tomorrow.

    Areit, some pretty good and solid studies here, I really like the anatomy stuff, and it is great to see you putting time into the pose maniacs facility and all that! It is quite interesting to see that when you study things that you seemingly have a limited prior relationship with (formwise) you do these amazing, objectional studies, clean and all, and then you try to put on a face, and all of a sudden you start with the abstractions that you have built up to represent, par example: noses ears and so forth, study more faces

    Good dedication here anyways, so keep active and keep working

    -E

    Mischeviouslittleelf:
    Thanks for your encouragement - I think with the anatomy studies it's literally a matter of time applied, I spend about 5 hours per study! So they're a strange class of a study, they're like a warm up after a 5 year hiatus. Also its sort of a project of mine to go through the book - and I'm learning all these interesting things about the body. I'll comment in your sketchbook, thanks again

    Now - some faces. Also some semi-famous british "portraits" I've been drawing on the side over a few days - Rolf Harris, Tony Hart, Tom Jenkinson and Bogdan Raczynski. Today I ravaged a copy of the Sunday Times for heads, and just a few minutes ago some skull studies with my tablet.

    C&C very welcome

    Distinct lack of heads here, instead there's hands.

    And a planet. I'll be back with a what-i've-learned-about-heads tablet sketch later on. Peas

    Had a couple of days break, mostly to focus on facial construction, plus my first model sheet for a random character. However tomorrow I'm back on track for anatomy - learning about legs, something I know nothing about so it'll be fun

    Very interesting, one thing I'd like to mention is that you take a closer look at proportions on the face and on the body, but overall I like your sketchbook | Skotchbok| Skotchbok

    Wow its been a while, but I've been thinking about Education of late -
    spent a day researching colleges/universities, found a bunch of very good
    information including a close by Life Drawing class, a few Art Foundation
    courses and Open Days for next year.

    However I got some anatomy done, as per usual - its so bloody hard trying
    to catch natural sunlight this time of year, and without throwing distracting
    shadows everywhere. The urge to sleep....

    And many thanks juczpen for your input, i do have great difficulty with
    proportions, its something I can maybe tackle with beginner orientated art
    books I'll be buying in the January sales hopefully.

    Tomorrow I'm off to see a friend who's back from Uni studying illustration,
    we'll get some interesting drawing done i think... my first attempts at comicing no less

    Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to everyone!

    I didn't get a whole lot done, but I made some very rough decisions on a
    Scott McCloud exercise in one of his books.
    Basicly I had to divide a film down into 16 key moments, and I chose Aliens.
    Its all from reference however I introduced some new camera angles,
    rearranged scenes etc.


    Sorry for any spoilers!

    Definitely keep doing more faces, I see some nice improvement. Take the same time and care with them with them as your muscle studies, as your heads seem kinda rushed. Keep it up!

    Hi nice start! Anatomy studies are good.

    A little trick for the faces: Try to find the line of symetry and align the features on it.

    Sweet anatomy studies, and Amazing insect drawngs! In your faces you've got the tendency to elongate the lower part (nose and mouth) too much. Keep in mind that the eyes are approx at the center of the entire head length.
    Anyway, good work! Keep it up

    Thank you so much everyone for the encouragement and good words

    Next is a small update.

    Another thing, how do I edit my sketchbooks title? I need to add NSFW or "Contains Nudity" or something. I have some life drawing to post up.

    Thanks!
