    thanks for commenting on my sketchbook and the resource link! They were really helpful !

    good SB you got going here, though I find your drawings quite long. I generally have problems with the width of things but to me your width is fine just the drawings themselves are kinda stretched.

    Hi! It's great to see how much work you're posting. Keep at it, that's what's gonna get you far. I agree with the person above too.

    I saw your post in the SSG thread, lets see if we can get some people together.
    Subbing to your sketchbook, keep working!

    In your longer life studies, your proportions are a little wonky--Before you get into shading and stuff, remember to compare all the parts of the body to each other to see if their size makes sense. Does his leg look proportional to his arm? Are his arms overpowering his torso? are his shoulders a "head" on each side? Also, do you hold your pencil up to the model? That is a great way to measure. Let me know if you know what I'm talking about, if not I'll elaborate. Great start though, your 5 min. and 10 min. ones are off to a great start too--you seem to be able to get down the full body in time, which is important. I have a bad habit of nixing the hands and feet ;p

    I randomly measure, but mostly I'm rushing to get the whole figure down before the time runs out >.>
    I usually draw the shadow line during the pose, and shade the shapes when the model resting afterwards
    I admit I almost never draw hands and feet, so I'm bad at that, I guess I draw my hands today then XD

    It's great that you are doing some studies in marker! Keep doing that. When I first started here, someone suggested to me that I use a bigger, thicker pencil or marker, because for some reason, using something bigger makes you more conscious of your marks. It definitely helped, so keep at it.

    Here are some books you should be studying/referencing, if you aren't already.
    Bridgman "constructive anatomy" (really great for breaking the body into shapes)

    Andrew Loomis Another great master, with really helpful books.

    Burne Hogarth: Another popular choice around here. Very expressive, and he breaks things down a little differently than most people.

    Hope those help. The bridgman book is worth actually reading and not just studying the pictures--if you can train your mind and your eye to perceive the body in those shapes the way he describes, you will change how you draw.

    Hey Anthony! I'm kinda new at the critique thing so take this with a grain of salt, but your hand studies are a bit flat my teacher recommended us to use construction to help us understand the forms that we are drawing. So you could try making the form into boxes to understand it three dimensionally. Vilppu's drawing manual has some good anatomy stuff in addition to loomis. I hope I'm making sense and it's nice to see your head studies too.

    Hey man, nice works you've got so far.
    As for crits about your selfportrait: try and use more different shades of dark and light, for now it seems you've used only maybe 3 gradients of grey: light on the right, middle grey on the nose, dark on the left. Try to pull that apart into 5 tones of grey > you will notice shapes better, develop more understanding of underlying structure and you'll produce stronger drawings. Look at your portrait of dec25th 2010 > there are more shades of grey there already.
    Other than that, study anatomy, 3d form and practice, practice, practice
    Keep it up!

    The hand studies are pretty good. Nice translation from Loomis to life. Keep doing these. Line is pretty good, rather confident, and the shading helps with the form.

    1) I fucking love nyancat poptart drawing. NYAAAAA : DDDDD
    2) Awesome awesome start on the hand studies!! I can tell you're taking your time and it's really showing that you understand the concepts that Loomis depicted. If you keep this up, you're going to be breaking down anatomy like it's yo' bitch.
    My only critique is do to more!!!

    Your hands with all the planes are looking awesome! The ones from life seem a little flatter but they're still very good. I also agree that the nyan nyan cat is freaking awesome.

    Watch the proportions of the flat part of the hand to the fingers. The palm/flat part is looking a little short, even though I know you are drawing them foreshortened. There is a great hand tutorial that said to measure the hand in equal squares but I can't find it so I redrew a crappy version of it to show you what I mean.

    Woot! your hands are getting better. The side view one is particularly solid in this last batch. The camel sketches are also great too! It's good to see some marker in there too, keep at it and develop your line quality with the marker

    Good job with the zoo sketches. They're recognizable, always a plus. Love the camels.

    Yeah, I agree. The hand studies are really nice. I think you got a good likeness of the animals especially the giraffe. You've captured its general shape really nicely.

    This one shows a nice improvement.
    The sitting chick on the right in this one is good--even though her proportions are not totally right, the way you simplified forms is great, you're definitely heading on the right track.

    At this point I think you could also benefit more from your hand studies if you do a lot more of them, fill entire pages with hands. Study one or two in depth from loomis, and then repeat it multiple times until the shapes and strokes become second nature to your hand.

    Keep at it!

    May I suggest letting your lines flow a bit more, a bit further so the kind of sweep in your shorter timed gestures (up to 5 minutes). In gesture, you want to capture the sweep of a pose, and longer lines can help capture the motion of the pose, even a held one. It'll also add some confidence to your lines. And don't be afraid to use overlap to help with the form, especially the arms.

    I second Hala: fill your pages with hands. Use Loomis to learn the structure and theory, practice those hands multiple times, then apply it with your hands, others' hands.

    Yeah, your definitely improving. Your hand studies are also getting better, your capturing the form nicely. On the study of the old persons hands you should pay attention to where the bones are in the hand, I guess, because the knuckle looks a bit off.

    That SP is the best picture you've posted by far. As to your life drawing I would suggest that you do more still lives and try to capture the form more, then bring it into your life drawing. Also push those those master studies a lot further.

    My eldest son is at Worcester Uni - he'll be the tall skinny, rude, drunk one.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    still lives are very important. When you observe forms, color, and light in real life, you begin to build a mental library of how these things should look. Studying from masters and looking in books...they're great, but they are also limited. Nothing can compare to the clarity you get with a real 3d object in space. It tunes your eye, which in turn tunes your hand.
