    Xeon, I believe it may be called "A Method For Constructing the Figure." Not sure though. It does a good job of incorporating a lot of Vanderpoel drawings in explaining anatomy. And, I've found it a much clearer explanation of constructing the figure as 3D solids than either Loomis or Hogarth. Also, I've come to think that Hogarth ripped off most of Loomis' ideas in his Dynamic Figure Drawing without out giving him proper academic credit!

    Anyway. . . Daily's not ready-- just backposting some more "public life". Gonna keep doing these daily, don't know if I'll keep posting them though.

    I've got some momentum going-- want to see it through. "Public life" is valuable, but tighter longer Loomis studies are allowing me to knuckle down and try to get my heads to a higher degree of refinement. Goal: 1/2 hr of "publics" and 1/2 hr of Loomis heads daily 'til I see some sort of improvement. [This is doable, and, I don't even have to drink coffee-- I'm such a regular-- I can slip into one of the nearby coffee shops for a 1/2 hour without anyone even questioning if my travel mug has anything in it. . .]

    Hey Diarum!

    Good question. The new public and Loomis stuff "is what it is:" 1/2 hr of public; 1/2 hr of Loomis-- win, lose or draw-- no matter how good or bad it might be. The "Daily" is as always-- 15 to 30 minutes per day-- no matter how sad the results may be. Re outside stuff: I'm grinding away on my comic/ cartoon stuff about 2 hrs./day even though I don't post it. Now-a-days the daily will probably move more towards landscape and interior stuff to prop up my (behind the scences) watercolor stuff.

    The Reed book is still w/i copyright protection! So, suggest you check out yer public library or Barnes & Noble. (Probably reasonable on Amazon, though).

    Keep grinding away my colleague!

    Hey anjyil! Thanks for the drop by.

    This really wasn't one of those "improvement threads"-- but, I think I have gotten a teeny-tiny bit more disciplined and consistent-- but, there's always a real clunker lurking just around the corner! (But, if I'm not screwing something up now and then, that just means I'm not pushing my comfort zones. . .)

    Anyway. . .

    Daily for yesterday: study of a distant Douglas Fir branch (30 min.)
    Today's: yet another ornamental bridge study (same).

    Three public heads from yesterday, two from today. [30 min. per set-- illustrates the need to do those Loomis heads-- yacking, moving and leaving people are hard to use for detailed value and structure studies-- excuses, excuses, etc!]

    Edit: So so Loomis girl added later this evening.

    Holla, Kamber! Hope you've been fine!

    I'm amazed that you're doing lots of sketches of people who are moving non-stop, because that is something I would never even think of doing. I just get very frustrated when I'm drawing stuff and the subject moves (in cases where the subject is a human and they move non-stop as I draw, all I can think of is how to throw my SB into their face to inflict maximum pain).

    Ok, shan't disturb you for now. Waiting to see your undead over there in the Penvirate SB next week!

    Good day!

    So, with this post, my fellow Penvirate members might be concerned that I suffered a seizure or an aneurysm or something.

    Nah! Was just doing a "color study" with the watercolors to try to figure out a good mixture for painting that stupid ornamental bridge in my courtyard than I'm so obsessed with. Then, so as not to waste a partly wasted piece of "watercolor block" I did some free-style Bridgman hands to practice a little brush control-- it's been awhile. . . a good preliminary pencil layout goes a long way to avoiding crap like this!

    Diarum,

    Heh! Thanks for posting that-- just too funny! Looks like my medieval cleric has six-pack abs and is getting yakked on by an alien!

    Well, you're the second person to "read" the sacrificial cow as a horse-- so, think I'll have to work on her snout for next go round-- my friend with the hard to draw cat is brutally honest about my sketches-- said horse as well. Dog skull's probably a fair to middlin' example of some of the line weight stuff you're working on.

    [But, one of my "sacrifice to the giant squirrel themes" will probably be the one they put on the T-shirt at the art museum gift shops after I'm dead and famous. . .]

    Anyway. . .

    Couple ideal and real jackal heads from random internet views.

    Nay mate, when I saw those watercolors, I thought you had switched to abstract painting.

    Xeon: when I do watercolors I end up with a lot of abstract looking stuff from my color studies and "sacrifice sheets" that I use to test colors before I apply them to the actual work.

    Anyway. . .

    Hey Kamber! Seems that you're starting to take up water-coloring!
    I dunno, but water-colors are neater and sleeker-looking than oil painting, and I intend to paint using water colors in the distant future.

    Hey Xeon,

    More like getting back to watercolor-- trying to get back to making the mistakes I used to be sophisticated enough to make in the past! But, for now, just screwing around with some colors and brush handling-- like the below stuff-- playing with some browns, blues and greens for some eventual landscape stuff-- Bridgman figures are relatively easy to draw quickly and give a solid object to play with some modelling.

    [Probably post today's "daily" tomorrow, by the time I get it done. . .]

    Oo, Pink Floyd! ->refering to the writing exercises on page 9. Any reason for this by the way? Hand control, linework? Calligraphy?

    I'm liking the watercolour additions to your SB very much!

    Insanity is the key!
    Also, studies are a key. And passion is a key. Also, so are inspiration, motivation and dedication. Talent can be a key. Insomnia can also be a key, depression is a sad rusty little key. Damn, artists need one hell of a keyring.

    Hey Aila!

    Just a little lettering practice-- trying to put some things in order, knuckle down, and bring my cartooning up to a professional level.

    For now, just dragging the watercolors out where I'm tempted to play with them a bit-- nothing too serious for now-- thinking about (maybe) working my way through Bridgman in monochrome and/or two-tone W/Cs to maybe drill my skills to the point that I don't feel futility in dragging WC to a life session.

    Anyway. . .

    Building front.

    Hey Diarum!

    Those really didn't come out too bad for just screwing around on printer paper; building study's for part of what might be my Penvirate enviro submission.

    Below:

    Two public heads and a head reffed from Andrew Wyeth's "Jimmy." (30 min. each on the publics, only about 15 on the ref). Think I'm going to spend more time with quality ref material-- public stuff, though valuable, drags out practice quit a bit. But, I'll still do them, just less time dedicated to them.
