    very nice. try to understand the fundamental shapes, cube/sphere/tube when you draw it will save you a lot of time cause you will learn about the structure of things!

    Wow. That's a crap load of sketchbooks! That's awesome that you're going to try to fill them all!

    There's some nice stuff going on so far. I especially like your latest update in post #209. (Some really awesome studies in that one! Is that pen you're drawing in? If it is, you're a lot braver than I am!) What the proportions on the stuff you're doing from imagination -- sometimes things look slightly off. (Your line quality is kind of interesting, however, and it almost makes me gloss over the anatomy mistakes because they look kind of cool, instead of just like mistakes. XD)

    Keep up the good work, you're improving really fast!

    Whoa Crane, that's a respectable library of art books. Good stuff. I've recently started working on a collection as well. How's Rakuga King treating you? I got mine in the mail today, think it's fantastic.

    Good to hear you've got a tablet. Was just wondering about whether you also worked digital since we've got the SSG studies going. Don't want to leave people out when deciding on topics, you see. Also, the Daily Sketch Group is a great place to have fun and practice with digital sketching.

    Congrats on desecrating that first sketchbook! Finished it off with some great monsters. I like those human/monster hybrids; they allow you to try crazy stuff while practising anatomy and different materials. I enjoy the ones in #204 and the last post because you've taken time for some shading. Going well for you, try that some more!

    Try taking small mini-breaks to take some distance and review the entire drawing to spot proportion issues. Takes a second. Drawing 'all over' the place rather than focusing on one area at a time can work too. I find that when I get too caught up in e.g. shading one area, it's easy to completely lose track of the rest. Resulting in stuff not sitting well together.

    Hi Crane! Keep up the studies. Train your eye in observation and doing your best in putting them down on paper.

    The Bargue drawings are a great way of doing that because a lot of the drawings are simplified into straight lines and distinguishable lights and shadows. This allows you to focus on the big shapes rather than the small details. Details are only secondary because if you don't have a strong foundation, everything else will just fall apart.

    Also look at your angles, alignments, size relationships, negative shapes, etc. and always compare your drawing to what you're observing.

    Nice update. (I know this time of year is crazy for a lot of people.)

    The hand studies look great and the first picture (and the variant) is too funny. (Something about it just cracks me up.) If I had to nitpick something, I feel like I want to see a highlight of some sort on the eye of the seal, but that's really all I've got.

    Keep up the good work!

    the last terada copy is great

    your lines are getting better with those studies

    but try to keep that confidence with photo/life studies
    remember: coping other artist is much easier than interpreting real life subjects, you must make your brain work much more

    good luck with nexts

    Your studies are great! I may be way off, but it looks like you sometimes rush through your drawings. You might benefit from slowing down and really concentrate on the markmaking. Keep drawing!

    Hiya Crane!

    Great sketches Nice start on the mega sketchbook challenge! Don't have anything to add to what the other guys have said so I'll just say "Keep it up, you can definitely see an improvement already."

    Oh, I guess I do have something to add if you've not already heard it, sometimes it's easier to see values and shapes when you squint and it can help you to not focus on the details too much.

    Shame to hear you're busy, because I'd love to see more of whatever you're busy with.
    That being said, I hope whatever activity you're busy with is actually art related and not some other nefarious mischief. Because those last couple of drawings are kind of crazy, with Stacey's mum being the pinnacle of said craziness.

    Silliness aside- please get posting again!
