    I really like the box people. I have trouble deciding when use boxes vs. circles and cylinders. I should probably work that some more.

    Love the banana too!

    Hey nice updates Mr Snail. It's really great seeing you stick with this, I know how difficult it can be for people from time to time. Makes me feel great when I see people making an effort, it will all be worth it. I can see improvement just over the past few weeks. Keep going, never get complacent and try everything art has to offer! Banana look great^^

    @ Pixie Trick - Thanks for the comments Pixie!! I've hadn't calibrated it recently but I have now. Cheers mate :>)

    @ NicG - Thanks for the comments Nic!! Glad you like the box people. I've found it good practice drawing in ellipses then boxes. Next up is joining the two shapes together. Cheers mate :>)

    @ AlexTooth - Hey buddy, how's it going? Thanks for stopping by again mate and thanks for the kind words. Gonna crank up the quality and quantity again over the next few weeks. Glad you like the banana. It didn't quite come out how I wanted but I thought it was OK. Cheers dude :>)

    Today's practice was;
    i. first attempt at drawing some feet regular and irregular.
    ii. I've done some modern or futuristic weapons in the past, thought I'd try something completely different and have a go at Gimli's axe from LOTR.

    Thanks for looking!!

    Nice studies going on, though I recommend for the bodies that you use cubes / cylinders to construct the body, and that will give you a much better sense of the form. Check out Charles Hu's anatomy thread in the Fine Arts section for good anatomy drawings to refer to, and keep workin hard.

    The second banana looks much better. Diggin the axe also!

    You can do stick figures while drawing Vilppu, just pay attention to the twist. Even a box can "bend" you know.
    Anyway, when you get a few chapters into Vilppu it will all start to come together, so keep on doing them, I say.

    Keep on rockin duder!

    I've recently been getting in to a certain habit when doing studies where, if I get something wrong and I know it, I'll repeat a slightly simpler version over and over again until I fix the problem, it really helps to make sure it stays in your memeory.

    try it out with the deformed foot

    Hey nice work with the feet. I think you've done well as they are not easy to draw. Being a LOTR fan I love the axe. The metal and inlaid pattern look so real. Well done you for getting so much done.

    Thanks for the visit mate!
    I think you're on the right track, just do a lot more Stillleben, anatomy studies, it's gonna pay off. cheers

    Turbosnail, i assume you practicing without textbooks and not using many ref, and this is wrong. At your current stage it's important to observe and remind. I mean even the greatest artists used refs - why can't we? ) The other improtant thing - when you observe your refs (like for example) try to see in them more simple shapes - cubes, spheres, prisms etc. Good practice would be taking a photo (hand, feet, face etc) and overpainting lines of simple shapes, that form fluid shape of body.

    I wish you a lot of patience, if you really want to become good artist. If you wan't you can ask me for help - though i'm still learning myself (hell aren't we all?) i can give you few begginers hints )

    Seraph Fawkes is quite right as you should practice using a lot of refs, it'll build up your visual memory, but don't get me wrong but what your doing, drawing from imagination is great, though try to balance the time between imagination stuff and reffed, giving you and your head time to think and reflect on what your taking in from your studies, and that axe is looking super!
