    Thanks Jackpot good luck on the leg studies. Feet are so hard. And doing studies makes sketches easier.

    I've been getting back in the groove. I have a lot of WIPs nothing that's really finished.

    good that u posted i understand it can be a little daunting ur first time .
    anyway, this might sound like 'anti advice' but anatomy studies are kind of futile as far as what u should be learning.

    by far the most crucial elements of a convincing character are gesture and weight. anatomy is a lot less important than a lot of people around here would have u believe. copying muscle after muscle from a bridgeman or hogarth book wont really help u unless ur ready for it. what i would suggest is a hell of a lot of figure drawing, from life and from reference, most importantly trying to capture the weight and the gesture of the subject

    keep working hard!!!

    So far so good! Yeppersz! I do think that, when you draw in manga style you tend to loose a lot of proportions from the studies you've done, seemed flat. You should perhaps, draw the forms and definitons or trace the character designs you're going to draw on top of the studies you've done, 'til you get the hang of it. Life drawing would help a lot too! On buses, subway, figure drawings etc...
    Keep it up with the studies! You're doing great! I think drawing from looking at yourself in the mirror and photos would be good also I hope this helps.
    The best things in life are free...!

    Sleep and ImaGEEnation - thanks for the great advice. The best remedy I figured out is to draw more and observing actively.

    Jackpot - thanks for stopping by as always. That site really came in handy.

    This is a couple weeks worth of stuff. I've gotten better with the wobblieness of my characters. and I gotten quicker with studies

    Your rhythm is definitely improving! I like the life drawing in post #50 but I'd try to define form more with rendering than with lines. Keep it up

    It's been a hella long time since I updated O.O; I have a ton of drawings that I haven't scanned in. Hopefully by the end of this week, I'll post the good stuff.

    A sketch and a revision of the ancient warrior idea.

    Thanks Jackpot, I need to seriously work on more form than just lines.

    Nice update. I think you should really focus on working on those proportions though. Keep it up!

    Thanks jackpot for your support.

    I can't believe this place is unbearably bare! I have tons of stuff from school and personal work since this summer and to this day. And it's all out of order.

    The first drawing was a study of a cool manikin that I got. The hands and feet have magnets in em, and make studies fun.

    I admire your dedication! The sense of rhythm in your lines and figures is definitely improved. I did notice that many of your figures are a bit squat. I would advise you to check the proportions of your figures; may want to have a look at this sheet by Loomis. Keep it up!

    Thank you Benjaminba for stopping by. and thank you for the propprtion sheet. I always forget about that.

    I noticed my aerial perspective wasn't that convincing, so I wanted to work on that in grayscale.
    And the still life is from like august, in the beginning of the semester.
