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, thanks for stopping back!
Progress, I think, will be slow! To the extent that most of these will be multiple figures anchored in some sort of environment, I'll probably get a little tighter, a little more detailed, over the next couple months of (near) daily sketches.
The leg study harkens back to a lot of the more detailed anatomy stuff I was doing over on Michael Mentler's tsofa.com. It's really the type of thing I'm trying to get away from to force myself to think about "making pictures"-- complete works of art, as opposed to just drawing a figure or item that's floating in a vacuum.
But, anyway, you should check out Mentler's site http://tsofa.com --it's a somewhat different vibe than CA!

interesting work thanks for posting, i think it would be a healthy thing to study some composition and really work on putting marks on the page exactly where you want them
Gesture and keeping things loose for longer should help immensely
keep it coming
Your argument for Lined paper is pretty bad
if cost is an issue pick up some newsprint
also charcoal would be a nice change from the pen try to draw with your whole arm not just your wrist

Hey Zorcron, thanks for stoppin' by!
Composition is pretty much catch as catch can! (Lucky if I can half apply the "rule of thirds.")
That and intentional marks are greatly affected by subjects that just get up and leave! LOL!
Re gesture: with ballpoint, there's frequently a compromise/choice between looseness and accuracy due to the inability to erase.
My lined paper: everybody pretty much seems to hate it! This book, however, may well evlove into an ink wash or watercolor book (on better paper) over time.
[A lot of the rendering acutally is from the shoulder/elbow with a "match strike" type of motion.]
