    I see some good improvement here! Always fun to see. If u keep going like this you will have some really good stuff in no time!

    I find your hand studies really good, the pictures I saw with torso/upper bodies (except the small posemaniacs ones) didn't look so good thought. I'd suggest you practice some more on that area :-)

    originalpink Thanks! Yeah, I think my main problem is that I have trouble understanding what goes on underneath the muscles and the overall form and proportions. I'll give it another shot one of these days, once I overcome the fear of drawing the rib cage...

    Just some more poses and loomis for today.

    Nice gesture studies (lots) and Loomis/Bridgeman as well, you'll have a good grasp on figures in no time based on your dedication here. i'd like to see some more finished works as well. Keep it up.

    Izer Thanks, I hope so. The trouble with producing finished works is that I often get frustrated in the middle of it, not being able to draw something as I see it in my head. Guess I need to work on patience atop my studies...

    Just some poses and skull studies. I also learned that scanning at a higher dpi produces much, much better images.

    You are very persistent . It's looking good, I'm really feeling your anatomy drawings. Are you using Bridgman?

    Valve Thanks, and yes, most of the stuff is from bridgman. I prefer it over loomis, but I need to get more material to work from.

    Just some poses again today. I'm noticing that the poses are starting to come easier and smoother now.

    I'm noticing improvement. You're line confidence has sky rocketed. Just curious, what medium do use for your shading? I'd love to see some portraits.

    Keep it up, I'll drop by often.

    Valve Hey, thanks again. Well, I mostly use just a regular 0.5 mechanical pencil. On poses, or whenever I feel like testing myself with permanent lines, I use a "0.5 needle point" BIC pen (at least that's what it says on sticker). And hey, if you keep dropping by, I'll be sure to keep checking out your stuff

    And speaking of portraits, I looked up this "MMA Photography" that a lot of people seem to be using, and did some studies from there. They're not exactly portraits, but there's a bunch of faces.

    Hey there, nice work in here!

    you started out this sketchbook strong and I'm already seeing good progress in here. Your anatomy looks like its getting nice and strong, lets see some more studies though, also try out doing more from your imagination with what you're learning.

    I smell good potential in this sketchbook, update often please!

    AustenFM Thanks! And yeah, I need to do more studies again, thanks for pointing that out. It's nice to have someone remind you what you should be doing instead of what you want... And does daily updates sound good enough?

    Just some poses for today, but ill have more tomorrow.

    So after seeing all your pose maniac stuff I was inspired to do it myself. And I suck at it . Any suggestions. I'll post the stuff I did later.

    I used to just use mechanical pencils too and I found problems in getting good contrast. You would be very surprised how much a good set of drawing pencils could do for you. I suggest investing.

    http://basangpanaginip.blogspot.com/...downloads.html (drawing book downloads) can help you out tremendously. I am pretty sure the files are safe I have downloaded them all a while ago and nothing bad has happened to my computer yet.

    Keep it up

    Valve Heh, nice to know my influence is spreading. Drawing pencils? I'll have to find some next time I stock up on sketchbooks. And thanks for the downloads link! That'll definitely come in handy!
    For the posemaniacs, I started out doing 45 second or full minute sketches. Just try to get the major shapes of the body down, don't worry about every angle at first, or even always completing every figure. Just do a half page of them every day and you'll find the poses becoming easier to understand and draw.
    Once you start feeling comfortable, begin increasing the speed.

    Joce Yes. Yes I am. Thank you.

    Poses, Bridgman neck studies, and some doodles. And yes, three uploads this time!

    Hey there Hamms! I love all your studies. I love to draw and paint but my biggest issue is drawing humans. I've always had problems with it. I tried studying Loomis and I do some practice and try to make a habit but after about a day or two I end up forgetting about it. lol. Any advice? Great work! Will definatly be checking it out every day!
