    Fabio's sketchbook - brand new start

    Hi all, I am Fabio, and I'm here to re-learn to draw.
    As you can see from the linked thread I made also some polished works in the past, but I'm no more satisfied with my own skills for several years.

    I started with some perspective practising.
    Suggestions about the way to take (figure drawing is always the best start? I can follow Loomis manual...) are welcome.

    Thanks to all of you.

    EDIT

    Added a cover...

    anatomy studies are great! but draw from life, and use anatomy to referance things you dont undestand

    That works great for me atleast^^

    I know that drawing from life is really important. Unfortunately I have no many occasions to do so (but I'm gonna get organized!).
    In the past I made my best drawing with photos, but I noticed that a life drawing rarely turns out totally bad... and it's way more interesting.

    I'm practising with mannekins and started to look for some muscles.
    I know perspective quite well (from ordinary school) so I'm able to make a construction, but I'm finding difficulties into spatialize from imagination, relating lines and masses to a unique horizon and stuff like that.

    Oh, I realize that I'm totally unable to draw gestures...

    I finished Loomis manual about figure drawing and now I started "Successful drawing" to consolidate my fundamentals (e.g. perspective).
    Studying anatomy on the other side has to be a continous effort, and about that I can use various books.

    Two sketches: walking pose from imagination and a quick one from photo (just searching for forms, no tones).
