A little about me:
I am 22 years old.
I went to an art university for 1 year, left due to loans. Student loans is completely evil, they come in under the guise of wanting to help but really they are trying to get that naive freshman to default once he graduates and send him into a spiral of doom... I already borrowed too much.
I've been drawing since 2006, painting since 2007.
I am serious about spicy food.
Critz, tips are most welcome!
He who loves practice without theory is like the sailor who boards ship without a rudder and compass and never knows where he may cast.

trying to make some ceramic balls, tips and critz are always welcome~
been awhile since i've done some figure sketches. these are from imagination no reference. tips and critz are always welcome.
more figure sketches out of the noggin~
youve got alot of pretty neat stuff goin on here. I like the fact that your taking the time to do the light studies with the spheres... something Ive never been able to get myself to do... But either way, good stuff. Just wish you were motivated to do more, you could put out some really cool things with a bit more work.
for your sphere renderings, it is missing some major elements: core shadow and reflected/bounced light. Check out Apathy's Foundational Course thread http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=76955
Keep up the hard work!

very nice! Me too trying to get over lazyness...
DoubleThink: Thanks I shall ^^
[LITTLE-FEET]: Thank you ><
sevarenge: I understood your english just fine , thanks for your compliments.
Newman101: Thanks~ I'm trying to motivate myself more these days, I know that if I drew more I would have already reached a higher plateau of art knowledge but I only have myself to blame, I'm trying ^^.
yvescy: Hey man, I intentionally left the reflective light out because I figured it wasn't necessary since they are just balls in some kind of space or maybe it was just less work ^^. I won't be so lame next time and add in the reflective lights with surface.
rogerb: Thanks man, I need to learn a lot more anatomy to make my figures believable ^^
Glebz: Haha we must fight the tyranny that is laziness!
Hey man, I really like your figure drawings. They've got a really nice style to them. Keep up the sketching. I'm lazy as hell so a page a day seems very impressive. I hope you can keep it up
Thanks for the comment man.
I really enjoy your line work, it's very confident, and the torsos are well built. I do want to see you finish the bodies, or maybe switch it up and work on the legs and arms. You seem to stay away from them. Understandably, they're pretty difficult but I think your work is strong enough that it would really shine if you laid out some sweet hands and such.
Keep posting, I want to see you break the first page wall.
ahaha for some reason the guy with the huuuuuge forehead stood out to me.
I love ur figure drawing!!! but maybe work on legs and arms in ur figure drawing?
I always leave them vague too but..practice makes perfect
Rogerd is right.. You've got wonderful control over line... Go for it and create amazing art.. Cheers.. I liked the way you've studied gestures of figures.. Keep it up.
haha nice!!! now i whont too se more complex poses! dide you seck my sb?
grey ball series is interesting
I feel bad that I missed 2 days of sketching.. but what are you going to do it's already in the past.. =/
AmandaMyers: I've already screwed up and missed 2 days lol! Thanks for the comment I'll try to stay more consistent haha.
HugeHarHar: I'm glad my lines feel confident, one of the things in art that I truly want to achieve is the feel of confidence through my strokes and lines. I'll be doing studies of arms and legs because I am weak in that area. Thanks for the stop by and comment .
phucci: I'll try to work on my legs and arms this week, studies and such!
Earendil: Hey I checked out his tutorial and I learned something so thank you for the link .
Bagg: Dude, that site is awesome! Do you have more?
Anup1: I don't get complimented much on my lines, tyvm :]
sevarenge: I just checked it out, you have some very nice rendering style. I need to work on my rendering =/ any tips?
wanimal: I'm going to post more soon~
Zenobia: Ty, I am grateful ^^.

Femur bone in different view.
sevarenge: I'm guessing that you feel the texture in your mind and go from there. That's usually what I do but it doesn't come out right, maybe I'm getting too frustrated with the brush/value.
