    Cool workspace man
    Add in some muscle studies in here as well. People might not agree with me with this but personally I feel like bones aren't as important as muscles. Having a grasp of bones is important too but since muscles shows the most, it's more important.

    But of course, if you don't know how the bones goes and how they are placed and such stuff will look weird. But in the end, muscles provide the most shape (if the object isn't fat of course).

    Not saying you should stop doing the bone stuff but put some of that energy on the muscles.

    Cheers mate, keep it up

    Your landscape paintings are interesting. One thing I notice is some of the details are very fuzzy? Do you paint small thumbnails then res it up later with color?
    Make a sketchbook happy, feed it a tip to improve!

    @ Huey Leng - Thanks for the comments mate!! I agree, I do need to get a small sketchbook for when I'm out and about. What's the benefit of moleskin? Cheers :>)

    @ Loathsome - Thanks for the comments dude!! I agree that the musculature is definitely one of the most important considerations during body composition. Cheers :>)

    @ AlexTooth - Ahhhhh Mr Tooth!! Thanks for the support my friend!! Glad you like the drawing table. I plan on giving it some real punishment over the next few years!!

    @ Noukah - Thanks for the comments Nou!! Glad you like the workspace. Cheers :>)

    @ Pigeonkill - Thanks for the comments mate!! The landscapes were both originally test canvases (approx 700 x 420) for some new brushes I'd made. They were therefore too small to shrink at the end. Lesson learned = big canvas even if I'm testing brushes!! Cheers :>)

    @ JailHouseRock2 - Thanks for stopping by bro!! Glad you like the workspace. Cheers :>)

    @ iven - Thanks for comments iven!! Glad you like the bone studies.... Stay tuned for the muscle studies!! Cheers :>)

    @ DSmith - Thanks for the comments my friend!! No, the drawing board isn't copyrighted. Feel free to build one... just make sure you post some pics once it's done. I'll sort out some photos at the weekend and fire them off to you if you want. Cheers :>)

    Today's practice was the start of some muscle studies.
    So... this piece today will be my 'study from memory' piece tomorrow.
    I'll also do a fresh study which will become my memory piece for the day after tomorrow and so on.. all should become apparent....he says hopefully!!

    Haha that working table is awesome!

    from your last enviro what's sticking out most for me would be the values/ hues, which are in a bit of a mess. Still lifes should sort it out.

    The bone studies are insane - that's some hardcore studying right there!

    Ummm muscle studies (even though I can't remember every single muscle).

    Well moleskin type sketchbook have a unique spine which allow for the book to be open fully right to the spine. This means you can sketch both pages without having the spine bothering you (stapler, wire binding and perfect binding will sure get in the way when you need to extend your drawing to the next page when iyou spread out the book). Plus it makes scanning easier too.

    Thanks for checking out my SB Turbosnail, much appreciated.

    You have some really nice work in here with some amazing studies such as the work you did looking at human bones. The muscular work is also looking very good and it reminds me that its something I need to start working on also.

    Keep up the great work.

    Hey Turbosnail, thanks for dropping by my SB. I've really enjoyed looking through yours. I think your oil painting of the mountain shows a lot of potential. The mountain is striking and really catches the eye I just feel the rest of the painting is maybe lacking in tonal contrast and so appears a bit the same and creates a haze feel to it. Of course this might be exactly what you intended. I love all your studies and I'm really excited to see what you do as your skills grow. Keep up the good work.

    @ Huey Leng - Thanks for the explanation my friend!! My pet mole is now cacking himself and won't come out of his hole until I promise to use only paper or canvas!! Cheers dude :>)

    @ Fiddzy - Thanks for visiting mate!! Hope you've got started on your own muscle studies. I'll come by in the next week or so to check. LOL!! Cheers :>)

    @ Black Spot - Thanks for coming by again Black Spot!! I promise to include some fun pics in my SB soon. Wanted to do a still life of my mole today but (as I said to Huey) he won't come out of his hole!! Cheers :>)

    @ miycko - Thanks for the comments my friend!! It was a pleasure to stop by your SB. Glad you like the studies here. Cheers :>)

    @ latidig - Ahhh Mr Stoke of the Church glad to see you back my friend. I've got a Canon Pixma all-in-one and it seems to scan my doodles ok. Glad you like the workspace and it'll certainly be getting a workout everyday. Cheers Glenn :>)

    @ Marian Rowling - Thanks for stopping by my SB Marian!! That landscape was my first attempt at Bob Ross's wet-on-wet technique. I loved how easy he used to make it look, painting those awesome landscapes. The painting was photographed using a mobile phone so I should re-shoot it with my 'proper camera'. I've always wanted to repaint the sky as that's the bit I don't really like. Cheers :>)

    Todays practice pieces are;
    pic #1 - a sketch of the anterior view of the leg muscles, this time done from memory.

    pic #2 - a sketch of the anterior view of the arm muscles, done from observation of a ref pic.

    Thanks for looking!!

    Pay careful attention to the shapes of the muscles. Right now you are drawing a combination of your reference and what muscles look like in your imagination. Forget what you imagine muscles to look like and learn to look at the shapes of the muscles as just that, shapes. Your drawings will become more accurate.

    No text, it's just a matter of diligence. Just keep practicing drawing shapes, ignoring the preconceived ideas you have of what you're drawing. Forget about the fact that you're even drawing particular body parts, see them only as detailed shapes. It'll take some practice, but you'll get the hang of it!

    alot of new studies and exploration since last I was here. I think you should do some full figures. no detail just play around with figures, feel the proportions and balance. Is good to leanr muscles and stuff but you need a good figure knowlage to aply it to.
