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.
Added a cover...

Practice with Andrew Loomis proportions.
No care for details by now....
anatomy studies are great! but draw from life, and use anatomy to referance things you dont undestand
That works great for me atleast^^
Awsome start for your sketchbook diggin the figure studies
keep it up looking forward to seeing your progression
till next time
I know that drawing from life is really important. Unfortunately I have no many occasions to do so (but I'm gonna get organized!).

Thank you. Your support guys is really precious to me...

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...

this is awesome
Now I should pass on to anatomy, but before I wanna be more confident in sketching mannequins...
Sketches, female mannekin, dive into anatomy.
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).
Again on perspective: inclined planes and mirrors
added shadow on inclined planes

I found all around on the internet some infos and sketches about the Frank Reilly method (there's a thread here too). It looks very interesting and I used it to adjust my approach to sketching.
Anyway, I've finished the second Loomis Manual. Now I think I'll go with Bridgman Anatomy.
Some sketches. No ref.
Very nice Loomis studies. It looks like you have a good understanding of human structure.
What I would like to see added to some of your figures is some movement.
Your poses are kind of stiff feeling for the most part. Try finding some really dynamic poses to copy. This could be athletes from any sport, a lot of people like to copy MMA fighters.
Please keep up the good work!
