    wow dude those anatomy studies you put on paper look rly cool
    And that drawing board is priceless.. u should sell that concept XD

    I guess you should just try to study landscapes from photos first and try some stilllives
    Then u'll prolly be able to get something interesting in the pictures from mind.

    In the last speedy for examply, i dont rly know what you want me to look at.
    U know what i mean?
    Try to get a point in there that you want the viewer to see.
    Then to grasp the eye to that point u can make sharp edges or make a highlight or whatever.
    That way you make the picture interesting to look at and therefor a better picture!

    But dont worry man, that stuff that will get second nature to you eventually
    Good luck , and keep drawing hard!

    great studies man - keep going on those, learning what muscles go where will always come in handy...

    i second Liffey's suggestion of drawing just shapes primarily and then trying to fit your knowledge of form and anatomy into them it can really help by stopping you getting too fixated trying to get something 'right' first time - it really frees you up if that makes sense...

    keep on keeping on man! look forward to seeing more

    Hiya Turbo

    Thanks for popping by my SB and for the lovely comment! Had a good look through yours and there's an impressive amount of study going on! Keep it up, there's a definite improvement!

    I gotta admit I have never done anatomy studies under the skin (I don't have the attention span for it), however I highly recommend life drawing as a next step up, it's so much easier to see the limbs and body as just shapes (as Liffey suggested) when they're in 3D and if you sign up for a course then you'll have a tutor to help you. I have been addicted to going every couple of years to brush up on stuff.

    Also with your environs I reckon if you check out the ImagineFX links that'll give you endless advice (or just studying the forums here), one thing that sticks out is the foreground is as blurred as your distant background, there should be a gradiating blur from a sharp foreground backwards to add depth (does that make sense?)

    Anyway hope I didn't drivvle on too much

    Seez ya round

    This!
    I agree very much with doing full figures, I would also advise doing some portraits too, because the face is pretty complicated, so the more practice the better!
    Also, some life drawings would be great, either people on the bus, or just still life. Drawing from life is a great way to improve, and it is way more fun that copying an image, as you get to create your own!

    @ Liffey - Thanks for the crits Ian!! I'm going back to basics with Vilppu's Drawing Manual and try to knock out those preconceptions. Cheers :>)

    @ B-Man - Thanks for the comments Björn!! I'm gonna work on that figure work for sure. Bought some Bridgman books and starting the Vilppu manual. Cheers :>)

    @ rogerb - Thanks for the crits Roger!! Glad you like the anatomy studies!! The drawing board is a god send and I wish I'd built it earlier. I know what you mean about the last enviro. I did have a 'settlement' mid centre but in a moment of 'inspiration' (ha!...more like desperation!) I painted over it as it looked 'too busy'. I definitely take your advice on-board for the next one. Cheers :>)

    @ strybjorn - Thanks for comments dude!! Glad you like the studies and I'll certainly be taking Liffey's advice about the shape drawing. Cheers :>)

    @ krel - Thanks for the comments mate!! Stay tuned for more studies. Cheers :>)

    @ Angel Intheuk - Thanks for the comments Angel. Your SB was awesome!! Glad you like the studies!! I've definitely gotta start figure drawing and using shapes. That foreground is definitely blurred too much and it'll be sorted out for the update. BTW.. You didn't drivvle too much!! Cheers :>)

    @ poetry man - Thanks for the comments man!! Glad you like the studies. Cheers :>)

    @ FraserMcT - Thanks for comments Fraser!! More figure drawing and life drawing to come. Cheers :>)

    Today's practice;
    I've just started Vilppu's Drawing Manual and these are analyzed pieces I've done so far from Chapter 1. I'll be doing a LOT more tomorrow.

    Thanks for looking!!

    With those Vilppu studies, try to loosen up even more, draw gestures in big swoops rather than those swings.
    I've found that going to http://www.mmaphotography.com/, downloading a bunch of pictures and putting them on a slideshow 30 seconds per each photo is wonderful. Try to capture the energy and movement rather than to get the proportions right at first go. Also don't be afraid to produce tons of them, get the cheapest paper you can (and, really, the cheapest one) and just go balls-out insane on it.
    Then again, you read vilppu, so you know - no rules, just tools

    @ tmth - Thanks for the advice mate!! I'm certainly gonna spend some time on these gesture studies. Cheers :>)

    @ Grandmassa - Thanks for coming back Mr Spect!! Glad you like the shooter and the studies mate. Cheers :>)

    Today's practice was an enduro-swim in the Vilppu Sea of Gestures. Here's some of what I produced during the session.

    Thanks for looking!!

    Hey snailshiresbury how goes it? Good to see all the gesture stuff keep cracking at it and its gotta sink in! I really gotta do more gesture stuff myself but this high altitude i live in is not good for gesture work!!!! Keep on truckin man!

    Nice work mr Snail, you're doing exactly the right thing. This basic figure stuff is almost the most important, if you can master these then characters will become very easy. Muscles and stuff are just arbitrary details, what important in the pose and the form - so you're doing everything right. Keep it up!

    @ latigid - Hey Mr Spoke-in-church thanks for the comments mate!! I'm gonna stick with this gesture work for a while in addition to other studies. Then maybe it'll sink in!! How are those mountain goats over there in your part of the Shire? They'd be good for gesture work!! Cheers dude :>)

    @ kingkostas - Hey dude thanks for the comments!! Glad you like the studies. Cheers :>)

    @ NicG - Thanks for the comments mate!! The dancing studies were probably the most fun to sketch. Cheers :>)

    @ snootchy - Thanks for the comments dude!! Glad you like the workspace. The studies are proving to be really interesting and also a lot of fun (well....most of them). Cheers mate :>)

    @ GoGoJojo - Thanks for visiting Betsy!! I've cranked the turbo up a bit and now I'm burning rubber (well graphite actually!!). Cheers dude :>)

    @ AlexTooth - Thanks for the comments Mr Tooth!! I'm definitely gonna do a load more of these gesture studies. I've bought a few books and now I only need to get the grey matter working and I'll be sorted. Cheers dude :>)

    Today's practice was more of Vilppu's gesture studies; including a recap of yesterday's work and then moved on to spherical forms, which is really good fun.

    Thanks for looking!!

    @ Black Spot - Thanks for coming back Black Spot!! I agree that balloon boobs are funny and whenever I draw I'm always thinking about Flubber hehe!!. Why is that??? Cheers dudette :>)

    More practice on the gestures using spherical forms. There's also another shooting stick wip.

    Thanks for looking!!

    You have really gone to work on churning out those studies. One thing I think may help you which I plan to do with my own studies is to go out into a public place to put them into practice. Going out and doing some gesture drawings from life might help you to further understand what Villpu is teaching.

    Keep up to hard work

    Good to see you doing all those studies! You're definitely gonna keep improving if you keep up what you're doing Aside from gestures, you should do some anatomy as well. Keep it up!

    @ darknight - Thanks for the comments mate!! Cheers :>)

    @ UrbanHermit - Thanks for coming back dude!! I'm definitely gonna do some public drawing soon. Want to get a good grounding with these studies first. Cheers :>)

    @ jackpot anjr90 - Thanks for the revisit my friend!! I might have an anatomy recap next week while it's still reasonably fresh in my mind. Cheers :>)

    @ AlexTooth - Thanks for the comments Senor Tooth!! Glad you like the 'shooting stick' mate. Cheers :>)

    @ GoGoJojo - Thanks for coming back around Betsy!! Glad you like the gun. It would go nicely with your Terminator welding project. Cheers :>)

    Today's practice were more Vilppu studies;
    i. Recap of gestures with no refs
    ii. Recap of spherical forms with no refs
    iii. Start of box forms study
    iv. Box forms Part II - Boxes with rounded edges
    v. Box forms Part III - Bendy boxes

    Thanks for looking!!

    hey turbosnail,
    great studies on the bones and musculature
    I try to push myself everyday. I try and challenge
    myself to draw complicated things so I can improve.
    Thanks for the encouragement, you're doing well too.

    Draw some stuff from life, still lifes.

    @ NicG - Thanks for the comments Nic!! Constructing bodies out of boxes certainly makes you appreciate the shapes of body parts as well as being a lot of fun. Cheers :>)

    @ danlucas - Thanks for stopping by Dan!! Glad you like the anatomy studies and they are always good to redo every once in a while. You're right, you gotta push yourself out of your comfort zone to improve. Stay tuned for some still life work. Cheers :>)

    @ miycko - Thanks for stopping by again miycko!! Using the spherical forms method (from Vilppu's Drawing Manual) definitely took me out of my comfort zone to draw characters. I've got a long way to go and using these different methods makes the journey even more fun!! Cheers :>)

    Today's practice;
    i. Box forms Part iv
    ii. Box forms Part v
    iii. Box bodies (more to come tomorrow)
    iv. Bridgman hands study

    Thanks for looking!!

    Today's piece is my first ever still life......a banana.

    I'm not happy with the proportions (the length in particular) of it and I'd appreciate as much feedback as possible to help improve my still life skills.

    Thanks for looking!!

    Hey there
    Nice going with all the studies.
    I think what is a problem with the banana, is that you didn't show its crookedness. Interesting approach actually, as when you think of the banana you actually automatically think of the curve.
    Maybe try one from slightly above?
