I am making a sketchbook thread finally to basically monitor my own progress and get help from other artists. I really appreciate any and all input and advice, improving my skill level in drawing figures is my main goal. As a student currently, I am very determined to have a grade A+ portfolio by the time I graduate, which is within a year.
To start, I will just post some study-based sketches on the human figure. It is nothing interesting, but I love drawing the human form and I constantly am studying anatomy to improve my ability to do so and I also use photo reference a lot. Some of the drawings below are from live models, the hand drawings are of my own hand, and most of the muscle studies were referenced from Joseph Sheppard's Anatomy: A complete Guide for Artists. The very bottom sketches were referenced off master drawings.
