My first try at gore or horror. I can see that I will need to make a habit of collecting refs. There are just too much to remember at this point of time.

Got a photo ref, and tried to apply what I see to mr craphead.
Looks better but not quite as vile as I would have liked it to be.
Kinda developed a taste for this "Start vague and enhance" idea all the tuts and magazines keep hammering on.
The underwater corpse idea will be my next victim.

Started some animal anatomy studies today.
Looks a little goofy at the moment. I'm hoping that the comparrative anatomy will help me with human anatomy in some way. I think it might be a good one to get for later creature desighn.

Heya Zaorr. Your animal studies are looking pretty good. I love the gestural qualities you've captured in some of them. (especially the horse on the left on the last pic) Keep at it, some of them may look a bit goofy like you mentioned, but I definitely think you got it in you to kick ass.
I gotta say all the head studies you were doing were inspiring and it really makes me feel bad that I haven't done that more (I kinda have some trouble with heads). Actually your general fire for improving is much of an inspiration - and I can definitely see the improvement from your first post. Hope you continue to pump out the good work.
Oh, and thanks for swinging by my SB - sorry I took my sweet time in replying, life's been kind of a harsh mistress. That, and I didn't get an update for some reason.

At the moment I can't really take any credit for them. I am still copying outta da book.

I like how you take a lot of time to make them accurate and detailed.
A few problems that I can see right off hand however;
Your line work could use a lot of improvement. Instead of making the hairy scratchy lines present in your most recent digital study of the wet naked girl sitting on the stone make longer more flowing lines. This applies to all of your drawings, even those studies where the linework is going to be covered up anyway. Get into a good habit.
To help with this Scott Robertson suggests doing pages and pages of just lines, curved and straight.
Place dots across different points of a page and just try your best to connect them cleanly, smoothly, and accurately. You will see progress on short order.
Try doing a few pages of super quick gestural studies here and there too, they will help you out a lot in getting a lot of information very quickly.

The habit is kinda clinging, my handwriting is also crappy as I never leant to involve more than my finger tips.
I accidentally misinterpreted the author's brush exercises in that book as him referring to a pencil as a brush cuz that’s what it looked like, pencil strokes and hatching. That mental trick stuck and is kind of doing it for me at the moment, changing the way I work with it, but it will take a while because I still go back to my old crappy ways after drawing for a while, treating it like a writing instrument. I like the way some brushes in photoshop also create that feel, I can just paint random lines and crap on a screen for a few hours enjoying that but it hasn’t fused into my work yet.
Some drills will follow for sure.

Smore copying and horsing around with stuff from Ken Hultgren's book.

Haha! Loving your horses. Always a different kettle of fish studying animals.
Your studies are coming along well although try drawing people from life to get a better idea of different heads in particular, there are some real freaks out there . I fell into the trap of drawing too similar people when drawing crowds.
Really like your digital painting though, I'm bloody awful at it.
With the woman your trying to draw, try building her skeleton first [rough and lightly with pencil] to get an idea of her posture. I found that understanding the skeleton of figures first really helped. The old stickman thing basically.
