    I'm starting this sketchbook in order to improve. I have a long way to go and a lot to learn so I am all eyes and ears on what everyone has to say. I'm going to make an effort to post on here both for myself and to see what everyone else is doing. Here are some concepts I'm working on for a story idea. Hope you all enjoy and please give me feedback. Good back and ugly.

    Lookin' good, man. You're starting to show more of the form underneath which I like. You need to push those further more tho. The poses are really static and you're hiding a lot... like the feet. Sometimes the characters just don't feel very natural either. The sense of weight just isn't there. Keep doing studies and find some ways to ground the figure better. More dynamic poses too. You're improving. You just need to keep taking it up notch by notch, man. Keep it rocking.

    I have been trying to do a little bit of anatomy each day. Currently I am a stay at home dad, so I draw when I get a chance. I need to work more on projects, but continue to chip away at anatomy as much as I can.

    I need some serious help with shadows. I understand it, but I'm not sure if it is my lack of patience or just my plain blind eyes. I can't see the form through lines. So any suggestions would be helpful

    cool start, keep working hard!
    for shadows, look up planes and values and how light and shadows work with giving an object form. You should also think about planes and how they help turn the object. Hard to explain since im no expert, but thats what I know so far, hope that helped.

    More drawings. I need some ways to get my mind moving cause I feel like I can't draw shit as of late. I think I am going to try to do some studies and see what happens.

    Things are looking good Kev! Keep up on the anatomy studies. posemaniacs.com has a very nice 30 second drawing app that randomly loads pictures in different poses. It's not necessarily the greatest for detailed anatomy knowledge, but it really helps with building a library of poses in your head to draw from. It's hard to come up with ideas of how to pose your characters if you don't have this experience to draw from.

    Also, maybe check out some skateboarding, sports, and wrestling (like wwf) photos to do some QUICK studies from.

    For form, try doing some small drawings of simple objects. Eggs, balls, blocks, cylinders... both singly and in groups, and from different angles. This will really help you get a handle on how shadows and highlights act and interact over the surfaces of your objects. Also, for now, don't worry really about the texture of those objects. Just the main masses.

    Try to keep a balance between the time you spend on studies and the time you spend doing the stuff you actually WANT to do. Like, don't spend more than 20 minutes on studies/warmup, and maybe start off with just 5 minutes. It's amazing what just a little exercise every day will do for you. If it's a chore to get to the stuff you enjoy doing, then it just makes it that much harder to sit down and do it.

    Keep up the good work man!

    I'm trying to do a study a week of artist that I admire. So this is a start of one of Norman Rockwell pieces. Right now I am just using hard and soft Charcoal, but I'll probably go to other materials as the week goes on
