Hallo Hallo, Squid here. It's a pleasure to meetcha.
I'm a 22 year old commerce student with a chronic doodling problem, who finally has enough money scraped together to study medicine (yay). However, if my plans to become an illustrious doctor living in a fifty-room mansion on the edge of the Bahamas falls through, I've decided I'll go to art-school and live on a bench.
This is where you come in.
My formal art education ended roughly around the time my kinder-teachers found out who was eating all the clag paste (mmm clag). So any and all critique and advice would be appreciated. I've begun picking up books on the subject (I've recently begin drawing from Loomis) and since I'm already working my way through a massive door-stop of a physiology book, I thought it only logical to study my anatomy while I'm at it. I'll admit I'm terrible at gesture drawing (all the people I draw look horribly stiff) and my grasp of colour theory is spotted and tenuous at best. I've just started making an effort at picking up perspective (I'm using the 'Perspective Drawing Handbook' by Joseph D'Amelio), and there are some concepts that still puzzle me (which I'll no doubt harass you good people about later).
In the meantime, here are some anatomy sketches I've done using 'The Fundamentals of Anatomy and Physiology (Fourth Edition)' - the book I need to know almost entirely by heart if I want to have any hope of (legally) approaching a person while wearing rubber gloves.
Note how technical my sketches started off before devolving into a sketchy, grey, formless soup.
EDIT: I forgot to add I also used the book 'Atlas of Anatomy for the Artist' by Stephen Rogers Peck.
Edit Edit: I removed all the sketches from the first post, and put them in the next one.
