    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.
    Cheers mate!
