    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!!

    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!

    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?
