    Welcome to concept art!

    I really like the poses. Although I suggest you start drawing people from photos instead of posemaniacs (I guess you used that one) since posemaniacs is pretty stiff.

    Be easy with the textures too. Textures should be used gently because if you start putting heavy textures on your images, it's just going to suffer. So be careful with it.

    However, keep posting and welcome!

    Check my sketchbook, I posted all my nude reference images in a zip. I hope it's still up..
    I believe they are on the last page.

    I also suggest you get the slideshow program Irfanview, it's great for figuredrawing.

    I'm finding it confusing switching between books of Hogarth/Loomis/Vilppu I think I need to find some kind of middle ground

    So the rest of the drawings today, only 2 pages but learnt alot in them with less reference and stuff, I also watched quite a few of Vilppu tutorials today to get me going i prefer his way of constructing the human figure to loomis so far.

    By the way does anyone know how to change the sketchbook thumbnail that appears for my thread? I realise that having a study page as my image isn't the most eye catching thing to represent this little journey of mine.

    Sleep now.

    Hey thanks for posting over at my sketchbook, in order to change your sketchbool thumbnail you simple need to change the image that you have attached to your first post as that is what it chooses. As for your anatomy studies i think your definitly on the right path, your proportions are quite good in most of the studies and the different parts of the body are roughly the right shapes where the muscles are. However i think if you want to improve quicker you should focus on different parts of the body and study them hard, then move onto the next for example study hands for 2 days then study legs for 2 days etc etc, study the muscle structure and how the joints look and work, this may seem pointless but knowing how everything looks and works beneath the skin will really help you give the right form to everything when you are attampting to do a full body sketch. I hope that helps

    Nice to see environment design along with figure studies, I'd recommend you to study everything else also, like vehicle-, costume design, color theory, composition, robots, if you're interested in them, the sooner you start, the better. Also, in my mind, it is pretty useless to do 30 sec gesture studies if you dont know the anatomy, I didnt see any George Bridgman studies, if you dont know who he is, you might want to check out his books, works.
    And Hong Ly has some great nudist references on his homepage at characterdesign.com, check my signature.
    Keep it up.

    Hey Heix23 thanks for the advice, I do tend to sway towards simple character design and environments but looking at overall studies would probably be a great help actually(although im going to have to force myself to do vehicles erggh). I tried downloading the Bridgman PDF from a reference link here although I have no idea how to open the bloody thing on a mac haha.

    Thanks for the great insight and I will be using some of Hong Ly's refs quite a lot it seems
