Or: The journey of a thousand miles has to dang well start somewhere...
Not much to start with, but just posting this at all constitutes what the late Bob Ross would call "the bravery test." First two are just things around my workbench*, the third was sketched from illustrations in books **. General #2 pencil (with a bit of Ebony pencil.)
* - Generic sketching mannequin, dragon doorstop from Target, and a Neopets Scorchio plushie.
** - Atlas of Anatomy, by Taj Books; Figure Drawing for All Its Worth, by Andrew Loomis (from download)
Here goes... (Hope I'm doing the image attachments right...)

Managed two pages today. First page refs: Figure Drawing For All It's Worth (Loomis), in pencils. Second page refs: How to Draw Animals (Jack Hamm), in ballpoint pen. (Why elephants? I was going to take a stab at the Daily Sketch Group topic of "Alien/Elephant Hybrid" today, but this was about as far as I got before I was interrupted by Other Things.)

Only managed one page today. Refs: Figure Drawing For All It's Worth (Loomis) and one of the textbooks from the CareerStep medical transcription course I took a few years ago (because it had a simplified skull.)
