YOU WANT TO SEE THE UPDATE ? SO CHECK THE LAST PAGE...
Ooooh! Nothing but nude figures and figure studies in here at the moment. I am trying to add some hair, face details and drapery as soon as I am well enough in drawing the nude figure. Could be in a few decades, hehehe.
I am a Trainee. So tell me my mistakes! Every little mistake you can find! I want to learn, learn, learn. Tell me, what I have to practice and which positions you want to see here, please!
Front ? Back ? Fat ? Skinny ? Male ? Female ? Old ? Pregnant ? Figure ? Sculpture / Cast drawing ? Body parts like arms or neck ? Above ? Under ? Foreshortening ? I try to find a picture or drawing and I'll try to draw the position.
Here we go...
Umpa: Thanks for your comments! How do you measure during sketching?
How to attach images without entering copyright info to every attachment? Is there a faster attaching process available?
YOu are off to a very good start. its great that you are dedicated to focusing on fundamentals because they are so important! i cant wait to see what you do in the future. Just looking at the tid bits of insight into your imagination here i can tell that its going to be a ride! ;}
Due to all the mortal weapons in many drawings here's another toy for all who want to play war: The bubble gun. The second picture is fanart. I had the idea today when I saw the light in the lens of wanimal's Nikon camera.

A fast one. Measuring the negative space...
Thanks! What do you want to see?
You're too concerned about drawing the contours of things... the "outside edge"
That's not how to do it. You need to understand the structure of the thing, and build it from the inside out.
Drawing the figure is a complex business. Starting by learning the "anatomy" of simpler 3D forms would be of good use to you. Gestures of spheres is a good exercise. Simple geometries (like that of spheres and boxes) builds into more complex geometries (like that of the human body)... and there's no way you can make a body look convincing simply by drawing a wavy line to describe an outline of it. You have to know the structure to make it look convincing.
Start at the beginning, and you'll improve faster.
You meant like Bridgman? Like that?

theres loads of potential here man - you just have to make loads of work i think and it'll all come good.
i can see you tend to avoid working on faces - i think that if can find out what it is that you avoid, then work like a demon studying that then you'll see masses of progress...
keep churning out the work mate!
Hey man, thanks for stopping by my sketchbook.

strybjorn: Yeah, you're right! I avoid working on the faces because I can't even draw the face proportions right. Same with drapery. (as I wrote in the sketchbook intro) I don't know if it is the right way to practice drawing faces at the moment. Maybe only the skull-form to get the whole human figure on the way, Sir Cam and p sage told me.
Sir Cam: Thanks for your crit! I'll try to draw the bodys with more geometrical forms... but my eye is guided by the skinfolds instead of the skeleton and mass under the skin. That might be the mistake which flattens the drawings from my 3D-View into the wrong 2D-Communication of my drawings.
Anyway... I'll keep the drawings coming as they come. I'll buy the Michael Hampton book, if I can get it to learn the building of the right forms into the whole figure.
More geometrical as far as I understood it.
Need to draw more male bodystuff...
Hey! Thanks for the hit. I love what you have going here too! A little less traditional and a little more you..(thanks for the inspiration- im to skidish to draw what i feel yet). Umm..oh! P Sage's, and others comments, i think are great ideas and i too will be trying this geometric shapes again.. I forgot all about that ideal. So thanks again.

Though Sage is right, I do think your contours are looking awesome. Keep it going and keep studying!
Those figures are looking good, but you may want to study values and perspective which will make your figures even better.
