    Your animal studies are great! I can see you're improving a lot right away. Watch your proportions and perspective/foreshortening, some of your figures get a little wonky because of it (#70, first one). Really like the figure in your first painting study, with his arms folded over his head. Looks really natural.

    Thank you all for the criticism! I really appreciate it, and I will try to follow your advice.

    carakhan--thanks for the input. I really suck at perspective of any kind, yeah.
    LtPlissken--thank you! Have been taking a break from naked ladies for a bit, but once I get a tablet again...
    Revidescent--Thank you for your criticism. I usually do draw thumbnails, but they don't do me much good since I suck.
    Nuked Tofu--appreciate the idea! Yeah, no matter how many faces I draw or how hard I try, they always look flat. I'll try doing some SPs in different lighting, and hopefully that'll help a bit!

    Finally getting a new tablet next week, so just have to survive with pencils until then. Will also be on vacation from work for a couple of weeks so I can finally spend a lot of time drawing and painting, yay.

    Cute kirbies done to appease children, but I defaced the page as soon as they left...

    today's studies (backs) and a couple of really awful master studies in progress. It's OK if they look bad, though, as long as I learn something from doing them, and I'll keep working on these...

    Hey bro, can see you a bit frustrated with your stuff =) Your anatomy is coming nicely =) Would maybe suggest a bit of gesture drawing, I use just some light lines trying to capture the idea of the form, don't rush these lines, draw them smoothly.. Hope that helps =) Have fun with your next study =)

    Hey! Keep them coming! can see that the anatomy studies are paying off. and how long are those gesture drawings? Think it'll be good to do quick 30s or lesser as it will then force you to nail down the posture and proportion quickly. Keep practicing!
