Finally started on the features of the face! Read/worked through the Loomis book. First page is me copying the images Loomis done, the second page is me using a mirror...
Done another life drawing too. I'm going to put the mannequin away for a bit and grab some other objects from around the house.

Just the one eye at the moment, will be moving onto both soon, probably along with the brow and bridge of the nose too. The third page is me using a mirror again.

Had a lazy few weeks. Should be getting back into the rhythm soon enough, drawn some brows and the bridge of the nose. Just focused on the outline and construction.
First page is copied from the Bridgman/Loomis books, the second and third is me looking in a mirror... again.

Hi man. Nice work, those studies are pretty damn good! Your shading is really nice too, good tones. Look forward to seeing you tackle a whole face...

@Dayle Thanks alot! The whole face scares me at the moment... but I'll be having a go for sure.
Here's a few pages on noses. Next up is joining them all together.

Last few months have been pretty hectic, which explains the lack of updates. Hopefully I should be back on track again now. I started with some warm up sketches of the nose and mouth area, using the books as reference.
I then tried to pick up where I left off a few months back and draw my facial features all in one go, sadly it failed either because I'm slighty out of practice or I move way to much for me to draw!
In anger I grabbed two images off the web of some famous people and drawn them. I think the end results are okay, much better than any of my previous faces (even if they don't look exactly like the people they should ). I definitely stretched one of the faces by accident.

Watched the TAD Anatomy class over the weekend with Marshall Vandruff, probably the best art lesson I've ever had. During this he also went through a technique of drawing heads that isnt in my Bridgman books and I've really took a liking to it. (Having Marshall explain it helps a lot too)
These few pages are the results.
Learning the rest of the body should hopefully be quicker now too with the TAD class behind me!

Faces, faces and more faces!
Some of the lastest drawings I've done in my spare time, trying to pin down the likeness of the faces.

And now the torso!
Began learning the torso too, not going to post everything I've done on it over the last few months but here are the latest.

Getting a bit more comfortable with drawing both the head and torso now, decided to render them out a bit more. Once I got into it I think the extra time I put into them really payed off.

Been studying the arm lately. At first I thought it would be fairly easy but the whole twisting of the forearm really made it difficult. Not going to post the studies as it is mostly just stuff from Loomis and Bridgman.
Also more faces!

Torsos now with arms! The hip areas look a little funky on some, luckily that's the next area I'm going to study. Also decided to dial back the heads to just construction, I really want to get that bit perfect before I move onto adding value etc.
C&C always welcome!

More of the same really. My torsos seem to be moving forward slowly, while my faces/heads seem stuck in limbo.
