    Retep sketchbook-------> 1/11/10

    WELCOME
    This is my long journey to improve my art skills, and i appreciate any crits i can get. I started this sketchbook way back in 2004, so more recent(improved) work is on the last couple pages.

    good start man! I guess a tip for drawing those porportions is to measure the heads. It's usually one head length from the the neck to the nipple, nipple to belly button, belly button to groin, 2 more down for the knee, 2 (1 1/2?) more down for the foot. It's different for every pic or person but it's a quick way to see if your drawing is measuring up right. keep updating!

    good to see a new book. the studies are a great thing to do, i myself am a big fan of bridgman. make sure u are seeing how and why he does things i.e. why he draws something this or that way and why he accents a specific line. making sure you see why he does something will help you understand, just seeing it and thinking "wow, that looks cool so ill draw it" will make you try to draw like him as opposed to understading anatomy the way he does. keep it up. hope to see more.

    thanks for the support

    jackalanubis-thanks for the tips on proportion, i will definitely try it out. oh, i checked out your sketchbook, awsome man.

    metaphysiks- i agree, i am doing these studies cause i really want to get better, so i am really trying to pay attention to the specific lines and understand the effect it has on the body. (its amazing what only one line can do)

    here are some updates

    what a cute lill rider....
    "The function of art is to stop us and take us out of our skin,
    Unveiling the spirit's pure nakedness without beginning or end.
    These dialogues of Maker and Seer weave together matter with soul,
    Consecrating the practice of art as speech of the ineffable." ~ALEXgrey

    Althoug this one girl's proportions are pretty messed up, I really like the pic. It has some weird aesthetics to me, esp. the black hair and her breast. But, I think, this is only an exception and therefore your studies are certainly helpful in terms of learning anatomy and stuff. keep it up!
