Its' free and it takes less than 10 seconds!
My browser crashed right before I submitted so now I have to do the whole thing again.
Let's start with a bit of a backgrounder: I've been drawing for a few years now, on and off (mostly off) and I'm trying once again to get myself to draw everyday. Anyways, I recently got Loomis' "Figure Drawing for all its Worth" and Bridgeman's "Complete Guide to Drawing from Life" and have been practicing with them.
Hopefully this thread will keep me motivated since, with almost everything I do, I tend to lose interest after a few days and completely stop for quite some time.
Anyways, please let me know of any tips that you might think would be useful for a novice and let me know of any exercises that could be helpful.

A couple more.
1st is unreferenced, the other three are more Bridgeman.
Figure drawing is always a good idea. I think you've pretty successfully utilized it so far cos I don't see any critical anatomical issues. The subjects really seem to have a presence about them.
Don't stop drawing!
Here is my sketchbook: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=166026 Check it out, yah?

Tobuoi: Thanks for the encouragement
Anyways, a couple more from Bridgeman:
Not much today. First is ref'd from a photo.
spoilers: more Bridgeman
I should try some perspective stuff tomorrow, maybe.
Drawing characters in perspective just broke my brain. Second picture is without any ref.
Busy weekend coming up, but hopefully I'll be able to keep up my streak.
For digital sketching your work is very clean and smooth, I like your studying of the bones!
now if I may say a little critique, it's just that for most of your picture, your hips and torso seem to be a little too big, compared to the arms..
Two more Bridgemans and a non-ref'd pic.
Thanks for the tip. I tried to keep an eye on the arms in the 3rd picture, so hopefully the arms are a bit more accurate.
figure studies are great. you looking pretty good there. but on a daily basis just draw. anything that in front of you no matter what it is. it really help out a lot.
Busy with school and my room mate has Ninja Gaiden, so I'm operating at low capacities. Here's another bridgeman and hopefully there will be more to come.
Oh man, it's been too long since I last...drew?...drawed?...had last drawn?
Anyways, here two more Bridgeman and hopefully I'll get back into getting at least one picture done a day.
