Hello all, so im 21 years old student from Lithuania, unfortunately I'am studying drawing by my own... But I believe I will make progress with time. Starting this sketchbook to gain more knowledge and that maybe will be some reason to draw much more.
this one will try to colour I think
trying something in digital

these are from reference, I found a site with interesting clothes dress ups photos in some ones sketchbook here on CA, site is hel-looks.com. so little studies from it.
Last one is from life, drawed it after dinner.
Anatomy in particular. A book might help (but the only book I ever really used for this purpose was because it was homework,) photo reference also helps, but what you should really be doing is drawing from life.
Life drawing/figure drawing classes are great because you have a professional model posing for a long period. He or she will be naked, so you won't have to worry about clothing. The lighting would be set up to make things easier to see/render, and last but not least, you will have someone looking over your work and guiding you on the spot.
If you cannot afford such a class, or if there aren't any in your area, a friend willing to sit still for a while might be a second best, even with clothes on.
When you draw, you need to think about the 3 dimensional forms that the figure is built from, a sphere for the cranium, tubes for the limbs, a box for the hips.
thanx hamsta for stopping by, yes you right I need more study on anatomy. Well I bought a book "human anatomy atlas for artist", I think its pretty good for studying human body parts. Well now for life drawing classes I just don't have a time (writing my diploma work), but at summer I think to start draw a lot more, and take some drawing classes, maybe it will help for me to progress quicker.
Some figure drawings, first three is about 10-15min on each, last one took me about half an hour.

Hey, so right now I'm far away from home, trying to earn some money, almost dont have a time for studies :/At the end of august will get back to home and I planning to start some sort of a drawing studies blog. Idea is to force myself to draw every, every day and post it there, no matter what it will be.
and that's a little update, to keep my ca sketchbook not so dull... last one is just a mind flow
2 Benjy: Hey thank you! I'm trying to do my best, still I feel that I'm improving quite slowly, but oh well better slowly than nothing, right ? ;]
2 raminafshari: thanks for stopping by, well it's not so huge amount I think, it should by much more !
