Thread: SHUT UP and DRAW!

SHUT UP and DRAW!
The only way to improve is by doing, so I'm starting this sketchbook to just practice drawing and painting. My goal is to post at least one study every day until I can draw from imagination effortlessly.
Any comments, advice or critiques are always welcome.

Thought it would be fun to start out simple and revisit a book I've had for many years (but never actually drew from it), How To Draw Comics The Marvel Way... but I'm finding out that it's not so simple. LOL

ahhh The Marvel Way...i REMEMBER how booooring those videos were. Those guys made it soo simple i just couldn't stand it. Well dude, those exercises you're doing are looking good. Now, maybe you should put multiple objects in one space, perspective and such. But it's lookin' good, now draw me a spider-man! xD

Flanagan: Hahaha, all in good time my friend, I'm still trying to learn how to draw a good stick figure.
Noukah: Thanks, I've been procrastinating for way too long, so it was time to do something about it.
Here's what I did today. The plane has some major perspective issues, but the figures and heads came out half way decent, I guess:

Jaytea: Thanks Jay, but what you're not seeing is all of the lines I erased to get those drawings to this point. LOL
laxon: Yeah, I'm trying to get into the habit of drawing everyday to strengthen my visual memory, which all comes with lots of practice, right?
Busy day today with the holiday and all, but I did manage to get something done (complete with little comical comments to myself, even):

Still taking baby steps with the Marvel book and skipped the section on perspective, since I have a few books dedicated to that already. I tried tackling a few pannels from it via freehand, but they didn't really work out, so I moved on to the figure section and attempted drawing Captain America from the first page of the chapter:

Wow Sk, you're pretty good. But I only see about one page per day. To remedy this, you should cut back on sleep and maybe skip a meal or two, that way, you'll be drawing more than ever.

darksoulzero: Good? I don't know about that, I can copy stuff half-ass but drawing anything without reference is a major weakness of mine. And yeah, I suppose if I were in my twenties I could draw more often, but I'm doing the best I can with the spare time available.
Here's today's crappy study on proportion from the book. I have no idea what happened to the first Mr. Fantastic, I guess I wasn't paying attention to what I was doing and I seem to have a hard time with faces, too:

This was one of my favorite books to learn from back in the day. Careful with the facial features of invisible woman, they look alittle small and out of scale.
But nice job, they hold pretty faithfully to the book.
