    Progress Tracker. lying-lynx

    Alright, well I thought it was time to set up a Sketchbook over here and get some real progress going.

    I'm 20 years old, at University and studying a course where drawing isn't the main focus, but I'd like to take it in that direction.

    I plan on doing anatomy studies, copying a lot of pictures, generally a lot of doodling. I have a bad habit of not finishing things, which I'm going to try and break as well.

    I'll start off by just posting some of the things I've done in the past. Bits and bobs. Cool.

    Any comments at all are very much appreciated, I hope this doesn't get lost in the vast sea of other nooby sketchbooks. >.>

    Some sketching, trying to learn anatomy. Some posemaniacs negative space drawing which I found surprisngly difficult, and then a few half finished crappy speed pose attempts before I realised I can't work at that sort of pace yet..

    A quick landscape sketch and an early attempt at digital shading.

    Nice work turvey really great start.

    you might want to look at a book "constructive Anatomy" by George B. Bridgeman its a popular book but is really good for learning the forms of anatomy.

    Thanks Mal, yeah I'll look into getting that book. No doubt it'll help me a lot.

    Just a quick update for now. A few poses and another quick landscape study.

    nice progression on your anatomy bud. perhaps you can do more environment studies, but as it looks right now, you're on a roll maybe mix in some loomis/hogarth/bridgman into your anatomy studies as well :3

    Thanks mate, as it happens I've just started some studies from Bridgman's Constructive Anatomy book, that I'll post up now. I'm hoping to do more environment studies soon, as well.

    Lots of studies, keep going in that direction. I would focus more on the relationships to start ie. who big is a compared to b. That way as you draw you keep the whole piece into perspective although you may be focusing on a portion of it. Once you feel good about that work in those values, and from there color. Great start, you're definetly on the right track!

    Thanks a lot for the comment and the advice. I'll definitely take it into account, although I'm trying hard not to get ahead of myself, haha.

    Other than that, I'm trying to get out of a creative block I have for one of my assignments. It's really effecting me. I know it's very important to show the development of an idea, and I guess that's where I'm going wrong. I just want to jump into the finished product.
    Ah well, here's a sketchy thing. Started off serious, ended up drawing weird stuff on it. I'll jump back on the self-training wagon soon enough.

    Looks like your progressing with the anatomy stuff nicely man, good stuff, like the others say if you're focusing there, Loomis, Bridgeman and Posemaniacs are the way forward, really like the enviroment pieces too, they from reference? How long they take ya? Very mood catching I thinks, keep it up =D

    Cheers mate. I'm trying to fit in the studies where I can, and I can even see how much they help my work. It's just hard finding the time, but that's life. Trying to juggle University work, as well.

    The enviro pieces were quick things. I think the Canyon sketch was around half an hour, I tried to stick to simple colours for that one. And the blue-sky mountain sketch was a few hours, where I tried to take my time and get a few more details in.
    I'm still trying to get to grips with digital painting, and I'm promising myself some more time for landscapes too, haha.
    Thanks for the comment, appreciated.

    Anyway, here's a quick sketch (30-45 minutes, I feel like a slow worker).
