    Welcome! What would you like to draw better? It's easier to offer advice if we know your goals. Book studies might help. Are you familiar with Loomis and other anatomy masters yet?

    thanks for all the advice, yes I am familiar with some of those guys I think I may have made a mistake by trying to study from Burne Hogarth first, maybe I need to focus of Loomis to start with.

    Nice SB!
    If you want to study anatomy, I'd suggest to study Bammes.
    The anatomy in that book is realistic and detailed, it's made for artists.

    I take it you mean Andrew Loomis? I have one of his books. They are very good. If you are looking for methods to study anatomy then there are lots of good books with instructions. Generally though I think you are right when you said it develops by constant study, provided that the studies one is doing are correct and thorough. There are no real shortcuts.

    Looking at your drawings I would say that you are definitely on the right track.

    Great stuff! Your lines are nice and tight, and you've got your own style going. Just brilliant.

    One thing I want to point out is watch out for some of your figures sliding off to one side, be aware of the centre of gravity in standing figures.

    Thanks for pointing that out Euphemism I will try to watch out for this when I do figure drawing. These next pieces are from a recent college project in which I tried to portray an exaggeration of a queue. Its actually on a 30ft strip of paper.

    yay!!! another moleskine!

    love the variety in here.. great to see lots of traditional media use..

    i saw someone else comment on the balance of the standing figures. it looks like you have everyone leaning towards the right.. try to watch that

    I really enjoy your mixed media pieces. Especially the 3rd one in post #12 with all the interesting textures, and the super cool 30 ft project.

    As far as studying anatomy, I believe starting from the skeleton out would be most beneficial. Think of the rib cage as an oval, the tibia/fibula/radius/ulna as curved lines, the hip bone as a box etc. while focusing on how they link together (ball/socket vs. hinge, etc.) and their proportions. Then study the muscles and how they interact with each other/bones.

    And then when you want to draw the figure, all you have to do is: 1) find where the skeleton is located by recognizing where the joints are 2) connect the joints and 3) lay the muscle masses on top.

    At least that's how I do it haha. Hope that helps.

    Thanks Yihyoungli I'm really glad you like some of the more experimental pieces because those are the ones that I feel most unsure about. I will definitely try to use the figure drawing method you spoke about.
