    Last ones now. I'm exhausted and my back hurts from all the drawing so I think I'll have a nap now.

    I agree with PaintMyBrain, the lines are very simple yet you know how to put some dynamics in it. Really love your studies! keep it up!

    update

    Thanks guys. Yes, I've been practicing doing the fast croquis poses with simple lines and few strokes. I think it's very important to trust your own lines to convey a steady entirety.

    Todays batch:
    1 Croquis drawings from last week. Most of 'em were done under 2 mins. A few detail shots with spots of shadows too.
    2 Random anatomy scribble from mind.
    3 Pictures from today's croquis session featuring some fast poses as well as some detail shots of the face and torso with simple shading. 2-5 min per drawing.
    4 Digital gray scale portraits of my brother with the light hitting him from different angles. Trying to "paint with shadows" and not with lines. Quick and dirty, but fun!

    I can also mention that I've done several small animation assignments such as walk/run cycles, wave motions and heavy lifting! Maybe I'll gather 'em and upload them in a zip or something someday.

    Hi,

    I really like your short poses! As you dont draw multiple poses on one paper I notice you never draw elements of the background or generally that surround the model. I think this could help to give the images a bit more dimension (apart from making spatial arrangemen more clear it can be nice for rhythm to have lines that contrast with the roundish ones of the figure) and let the figures "stand" more.

    All the Best

    M

    as always: sorry for the bad English. I leo as I go along.

    It's all in the game, yo!

    Jesus, it's been forever! Animation class steals all my creative spark, or something.. Anyway I started painting in Photoshop again! Been very long since I finished something and I'll try to change that with this piece!

    Digital practice from ref, just a WIP. 1 hour or so thous far.

    (Also I have like 50 croquis drawings laying around begging to be posted but it's such a drag to photograph every one, crop and post them! Maaybe I'll get to it... soon.)

    Thanks, yeah I will. New WIP at end of these posts!

    It's time to post all those croquis drawings I talked about, I've been scanning like a madman. ;P These are just the ones I felt most happy with.

    First batch: croquis drawings from a couple of weeks ago(except last) and a little bit of perspective training I did in a mall.

    Hands

    Geez, I really need to find some motivation. Feels like I've been in a drawers block like forever. Taking a bigger part in the community here would surely boost my motivation, but I don't really know how to "get in" with the folks here(still).
    Anyway, enough whining! I've been studying some Hogarth hands recently. I've only drawn two yet but I've been reading too. They look a bit monstrous, but I guess they're like that to better show the underlying structure. Should make more. And that fella Omar looks a bit unfinished..

    yeah bro this is what Im talking aboot! really nice. and yea they look abit unrealistic cause like u say the show a lot underlying structure or the person is really really thin But its most likely good to do this too so u learn what make the hand look like it does.
    Try and do some smoother ones and less monstrous too some day.

    Really nice and try to be around more often bro.

    girl

    Brain - Thanks. Maybe some smooth female hands for some extreme contrast! I'll try to be around more, we must meet and draw more together.

    I wrapped up a study of a girl's face from photo which has been laying around all unloved for far too long now. I don't know if I like it or not but I know that it was fun trying to draw hair and further study values.

    Thanks for stopping by my thread.

    The watercolour figures in post #100 I think are quite nice. For the pencil stuff like the sketch of your brother, it looks like your going straight for the details, something I think some of the figures in that post suffer from and at the some time you've got some really nice ones in that post (#101).

    I don't know what your teaching is, but have you considered trying some different approaches like something a long the line of Reilly/abstraction (E.M Gist, ect).

    As for the paintings I think you might need to on the male head block out the planes more and than blend and on the female the feature stand out a bit to much like there aren't attached but just floating.

    p.s
    if that's to harsh or not harsh enough just say so

    p.s.s
    you should put the date you and posted most recently in the thread title

    heya!

    When I finally get some feedback I go disappearing, but don't worry! I've been busy. I just wanted to have 85 images to boot my return with... or something. The real reason is simply that I've been drawing mostly Croquis and they're on A3 papers and I don't own a scanner or a camera so. But I finally got to it yesterday and borrowed a camera and a scanner! Took like six hours prepping the images haha. Oh boy, I need to get some of my own equipment...

    I've read your latest comments(a long time ago) and wants to say thanks! Especially to you

    Bruce - Really good critique man and absolutely not too harsh, just the right amount of harshness! You're right about not going in for the details too early, this is something I intend to do often. I don't really know what my teaching is either "Draw what you see, and not how you think something looks." basically i think. All in all I enjoyed your comment very much and will think about what you said. Sorry for the long delay! PS: I don't know how to change the thread title.. Searched like a madman.

    So here's the 85 images I talked about, starting with a heck load of croquis. I've tried to sort them from oldest -> newest but I think I've mixed 'em up a bit. It intend to happen when the drawing stacks rack up.

    First two are done in liquid ink, with a stick! Rest is mostly graphite with some exceptions like crayons. There's a few in there that I drew without looking at the paper, was fun! Off we go!

    Great stuff so far. Keep up the studies!

This is a place where swarthy and belligerent dwarves drink turpentine mead, berate their apprentices and slap the trade into their skulls. It's where the anvils are made of graphite, the hammers are as true as rectangular marquee selections and the fires burn with the light of a thousand lensflares." --Jason Rainville

    You've got some nice line in some of you're recent figure drawings and using the cylinders on the figures looks like an interesting idea!
    Keep it up!
