    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.

    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.

    one minute or minute and half posemaniacs next, you have time to look out for muscle shapes

    I'll try to keep up, thanks!

    serio
    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.
