CornMan's SB - A quest for improvement.
I've finally decided to make my own SB.
I'm 18, from Sweden. Have been drawing from time to time for many years. (But not as often as I should) I'm thinking that maybe CA can give me the motivation I need to really get going. :]
I've recently started to make some photo studies and what not to improve my skills. (I curse myself, fore I should have started making those a long time ago.)
Deleted the images in this first post to get a decent thumbnail

Very creative stuff ... me likee.
One of the things I've been doing to brush up on figure studies (after a very long lay-off) is pages and pages of anatomy studies and fully rendered body parts. Each week I'll choose a part such as the upper leg and knee joint and I'll copy drawings from anatomy texts, copy photo references of these parts, and then at least three or four life studies of my own parts in a mirror or family and friends. Over the last couple months it has really helped me get back in the swing of things, and it will help when I resume life drawing in a couple weeks.
Just keep at it. Given your already excellent creativity, when your technical skills get up to speed you'll really be kicking ass.

Great tips about figure studies. Sounds like something I could do on my holidays. (Like now. :3) It gets a bit trickier to find the time when school starts again. But I'll try to keep the flame burning even though.
Here's a few more pages. Will try to get some more studies done for the weekend.

Basically what Phlipper said...
You have some very nice linework going on and you obviously have your own creative style, so some figure drawing on the side should help you work out any kinks in your anatomy and such.
Cool sketches, though, nonetheless.
Here is my sketchbook: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=166026 Check it out, yah?

You don't know how glad I get from a simple comment as "You got very good linework", especially in a place like this - with such high standards. Makes me wanna sit down and draw like crazy. Thanks!
Only had time to finish one page for now. Got some more going on.
Mostly eyes studies.

After a weekend of drawing
Sorry for the lack of recent updates. Here's some more.
Only used ref for #2.
I think I've got a bit more understanding of the face and its construction. But my bodies are still wonky as hell. Forgive me, I will study more!

Anyone who knows any good sources for anatomy/figure studies?
Been using random images from google until now, but it's hard to always find what you're after. I would love like an archive with different body parts and such. I've got posemaniacs for poses and full bodies though. But I'm not too fond of it, the man poses are so macho and hunky. while many of the females are very luscious. I have a hard time finding the regular poses I need.

I did this in the meantime. Not a striking resemblance with the real one, maybe. But it was fun! Can you see who it is?

School has started and brought all of its consequences.. Not enough time to draw! But I've managed to get something done.
Would love some feedback!

Hi Cornman. Did you try the loomis books yet? They are free for download on the web and are just the best.
Also the Bridgman's books are great. There is two books of his in the "Hundreds of free ebooks" thread in the Reference section on the forums.
The Reference section in general contain all kinds of reference.
Enjoy and keep up the studying.
Scetchbook: View the exhibitionist's stuff.

I've also discovered the reference section now; seems promising. So, I got a pretty good idea of what I need to do now. I just need to kick myself in the butt and say: "Ey! No slacking mister!" I've got along way in front of me...
First some studies from life. It's harder than one could imagine, especially if your subject is jumping up and down all the time. Hands are from life too, but I see that I need to do a lot more of them.
Then we have some quick poses, and finally some random crap.(It's very hard to not let the pen go wild sometimes.)

Been too long
It has definitely been too long. I'll try to to better. I've got too many school assignments stealing my precious time.
Oh, well. Considering the art, I've got plenty this time!
