    Welcome to the CA forums. Great start so far. I'd suggest looking into Loomis and Bridgman books. They are great resources and they are also available free on the internet. Keep it coming.

    Hiya stezsen, I can see your working super hard on loomis, and that's awesome! Your definitely on the right track.

    Though I think you should focus on trying to keep your figures from slowly tilting over when you line them up. It's a pretty bad habit to have since it may mess up your proportions and give you a hard time drawing a character standing up correctly (let alone a group of people in perspective). lol this is something I still struggle with so I should know ahah. What I usually do is draw a straight line down before drawing them (Making sure its a vertical line of course) before drawing the figure.


    Other than that I think if you keep it up you'll be on your way to getting way better in no time haha.

    Thanks, all.

    I will try to keep my figures straight. Tilting is really my big enemy. Oh, can I use ruler or something else like that to help me keep the straight line? Someone told me not to use ruler. Is that right?

    You're off to a great start! It would be good to develop the skill to draw straight poses unaided, but I don't think there's a reason you can't use a ruler.

    The key to getting better at anything is to do it a lot.

    I am loving the dedication to Loomis. I can see you are headed in the right direction. Keep up with the studies and maybe you can try tilting your paper to compensate for the tilt of your drawings? Looking forward to seeing more.

    Thanks for stopping by, all.

    I've lost my ruler. But I tried to tilt my paper as GuruGaia suggested. Is my tilt problem getting better?

    Try to draw more "finished" drawing
    My Learning Sketchbook

    I found it's hard to draw the "landmarks" in any view point. I confused some detail especially in hands and legs. Maybe anatomy study can help my problem? I'll try the skeleton today.

    Anyway, I have scanned Loomis book and often found words like "photographic drawing" or "drawing look photographic". What is that mean?

    Thanks

    Stezsen, look at you go! Your improvement is really something! Your actually amping up my own intensity to get better since if you keep this up I'll be left int he dust ahah. So whatever you doing keep on doing it, and go even harder!

    Judging from your 2nd, 3rd, and 4th image your figure still tend to tilt over but its definitely getting better. The anatomy studies definitely will help, and as for "photographic drawing" I'm not to sure.. but if I was to put 2 and 2 together I'd say its drawing from photographs or a drawing that looks like a reference been used? ^^;; probably better for someone else to answer that one.
