    Random marks

    I decided to start a new sketchbook since the old one had developed some mental baggage. Time to start fresh.

    To begin with, here are some sketches I picked out from ones I had done over the last couple of weeks.

    Bridgman hand studies

    Some recent gestures, the first two from the zoo playground, the rest from Pose Maniacs.

    These are sketches of a character of mine, a kitsune, that I'm using for another try at the Art Grind (draw a character everyday from June 1 to November 30; yeah, I'm trying to catch up). Proof I need to get back to my anatomy studies and somehow get a consistent design for her.

    I think my biggest problem is while I can do gestures, no problem, I have a harder time getting myself to do longer practice and studies. I have list of exercises/subjects that I will get myself to follow so I can work on developing my skills and my mental library. This includes still lifes, drapery studies, and anatomy studies. Mainly, this means drawing more from around me so the stuff I draw from my head will look better.

    i like the last set of bridgeman studies on your third post (hope I got that right), the legs seem a little short on the last image on latest update, but you do have some lovely flowing lines!

    DeeStar: Thanks for dropping by. I am glad most of my lines are sweeping, which is good. Bridgman and Vilppu both have great lines, and trying to get that while drawing more slowly is tricky. I do agree that the legs tend to be short; I am working to overcome distortions that I tend to slip in. It may be how I hold the paper or personal "preference", but I swear I either make the upper body too wide or the lower body.

    Some older Bridgman studies that I had not scanned, plus yesterday's studies. I am trying to get myself to branch out into the rest of my planned routine and draw more kinds of studies and observations. These are drawings from an issue of TV Guide. A quirk of mine is, when doing body studies, I draw blank faces. Not a priority in these kinds of studies.

    Very quiet the last week or so. Pretty much Bridgman studies.

    Continuing the Bridgman hand studies. I need to take some time to get to other things. But, it's been a busy week and not much time to set aside. I'm supposed to be reviewing for a state exam for an ecological scientist position; review of basic biology kind of stuff.

    Ater: Yes, the book is turning out to be useful. Got to be sure to read it as well as to do the studies. Thanks for stopping by.

    More Bridgman studies. Still doing the hands, but decided I needed to pick up the pace a bit and started doing studies earlier in the book (it's the big collected one) and start working on the torsos. Hopefully, I'll get to ref'd drawings again and see if I can apply some of the things he talks about. Also, poorly done fox drawings.
