Workin on mah drawins.
Back in time, the old sketchbook.
cool jesture ....!
original first post
To start off, some gesture drawings. These are observed from posemaniacs. This is where we started in my figure drawing class I believe, so I'll start here again as well. They are from today.
Started the day off with some mass gestures. I like doing these a bit. Then a contour self portait and a continuous contour self portrait. Going on the use of the head in these, I went ahead and did a few head studies.
That's all for today. Been inspired by Avatar, gonna do some more drawin.

Hey man. I love those posemaniacs doodles. Theyre pretty awesome. Though I suggest you do some with lines as well help you see past just form and sillhouete it's good to learn about forcefull lines as well. With form it's way harder to convey what you're seeing. At least when you're doing quick studies. Takes a lot longer to get it right.
Work a bit on your blending as well. it looks a bit smudged and muddy in those ball studies. Just use a round brush with hardness set to like 30 or something to really smoothen it and use some strokes of 90 on top of that as well as some speckled brush or whatever to get rid of the digital feel. Skulls are looking great btw. Kipitup.
Thanks Parsakoira and jordyskateboardy.
I started working on your advice and was able to get a few pages of gestures out on this busy day. I was trying to go for simplicity with the scribble gestures there. It definitely puts things in a new light.
The final image is the best stuff I could get trying to do shapes and forms at 45 seconds. I definitely need to work on those. A great idea jordyskateboardy.
Will work on the balls again soon as well.
Got some more form gestures. Feeling better about them today. I did 60 seconds this time and was finally gettin a bit of the hang of it. Still need much more practice though.
Then a few cloth studies. Cloth confuses me.
I've also got assignment 5 from Concept Art 101 here where I added African elements to the headphones I drew.
It's been a couple months. I've been drawing, but haven't been posting. Posting seems to be a good tool on and off to really dive into a period of more intensive study in between working on applying new knowledge. Here's a few studies and some little doodles; I'll probably be posting some more soonish.
i like post number 7 a lot keep going
good start for your sketchbook man! I would love to see some anatomy studies here =) Some more pencils too!
Still going, just varied where/when I post things. Here are a few value/color studies from the past couple weeks. When I try to go into more detail, I end up muting it. I haven't been able to finesse the detail yet...more attempts soon.
(color study is the same painting at different sizes)
Nice amount of gestures,awesome!The studies are going great too,a lot of improvement so keep it up!

Great stuff so far. Your first digital painting attempts (the apple) show a lot of promise! Very rich colours and values - keep it up. As already said, you can't go wrong with some anatomy studies and life drawing.
