    Lets try this again.

    This will be my third sketchook on this site. I'm sure you've all been paying attention to the economic crisis that has been going on, unfortunately the shit hit the fan only a few weeks after I got hired into Ford. Because of this I have spent the last year struggling to hold onto my job and keep up with classwork, and every other damn thing.

    Well, now that Ford seems to be stablizing and I'm no longer freaking out about losing everything I figured I could start to focus on my art again. I was planning on resurecting one of my old sketchbooks, but I haven't really put pencil to paper in any serious way in well over a year it seemed like I should start from the beginning. I went out and got a .5mm mechanical pencil and a moleskin and got to work. Most of whats below is from imagination, but some is from reference as well.

    I need a lot of help, and I can more than stand harsh criticism. All I ask is that you please be specific.

    Enough talk, here is some art:

    Here are a few more, I tried to take some better pictures this time. This is from photo reference/imagination.

    I'll try and update three or four times a week.

    I can see a great improvement in you second post. Looks liek your first post was mostly from memory and isn't as strong as your referance works, but keep up with the referance drawings or life drawing and they will deffinately improve. With the sketch where you wrote "need help" i'd say move the shoulder forward and up. I like the stylistic shading you have on your sketches but try adding in faces and full fingered hands in you referance pictures too.

    I know I said I would update fairly often, but stuff from the real world keeps butting in. I did a CHOW a few weeks ago. The subject was a city, I chose Detroit. I only managed to do a few sketches, and they didn't really turn out all that well, but I figure I might as well repost it this stuff here.

    I'm loving the female figures. I can see the way your placing the pelvis and chest areas and the way you seem to join them together in twisted poses is very nice. and the hair on the first page you posted is very nice too.

    on the pic labled 'need help'. i'd say that the muscle connecting the shoulder group to the neck itself (sorry, forgot the name) should be stretched out to attatch to the neck on the side rather than at the back of the neck as it is now. right now the muscle looks to be contracted as if the neck were to be leaning and twisted towards us. thats my opinion anyways.

    hope you find the time to keep updating!

    It has been far too long since I've had any updates on here. Unfortunatly between work, school, videos games and every other damn thing I've barely been able to do any drawing, and what little drawing I have done I haven't been able to post since I moved out and I had to leave my scanner behind. Well I just got a new one (I just set it up today and I'm not used to its pecularities yet so some of the scans are a little bad).

    I took the Anatomy class for Artists by Marshall Vandruff. Some of these were sketch during the class and some were done the other day after I bought the books by Bridgeman and Rubens. Not perfect yet, but I would like to hear any comments or criticisms.

    you have great potential, just keep working hard. I think still life and other life drawings would help you out a lot too.

    Thanks man. The issue with the life drawing just comes down to time, maybe I could do more over the summer, but right now I just can't. I've had one of those wooden doll things for a long time and I do like to draw that occassionally, maybe I'll focus more on it in the future.

    For right now I have a few more sketches to post, these are just some more studies from the Bridgman and Rubins books.

    Here are a few more. Nothing special, just some more Rubins/Bridgeman stuff. If you see anything that could use improvement let me know.

    I wanted to update this thing a little sooner, but I'm just getting over being pretty sick. This is all from my new sketchbook, unfortunately, the pages don't quite fit on my scanner so some of the scans are of a pretty low quality.

    Anyways, I did a few female figures from reference and one from imagination. Frankly I'm very pleased with how they turned out. I just hope I can keep improving.

    Comments and Criticisms are always welcome.
