Thanks for the visit to my SB!
I think if you're gonna continue the SB you should resize alot of your work. Large work is good for mistake finding, but you do a large volume of gestures and you dont need to post them at a huge size. besides, If a gesture can only read at large sizes its not doing its job right. Gestures are similar to silhouettes in that they both need to read- far & close.
Also, Blu01 gives good advice, gestures are all well and good but try doing more extended figures. Some times 2 hrs on 1 figure is worth more than 2 hours doing hundreds of short gestures. Hope the advice helps. Keep it up!
To think, no..
I will certainly do them often from now, i wanted to get much as i can confortable with gesture drawing, before putting myself into drawing the human form.
I know, you mentioned the sizing more times, sorry i didn't disobeyed, will do regularly!
''Gestures are similar to silhouettes in that they both need to read- far & close'' stored in my head!
Alright, more extended figures & anatomy will be the the top subjects for the following months,
life-drawing and cast-drawing will be second critical subjects, [gestures will be in as 60sec + scribble (warmups)]. (If you have better idea, bring it go on)
When it comes to arrangement, do you got some advice(self experience) how i should invest time in study during the week?
Available time is 5h(Work days) 10-12h(Weekends).
Thanks Eric, definitely will do more deeper shading in future after cast drawing studies.
Three days left and six months have passed.. Wooosh.. gotta work harder
Sorry for bad english and thanks everyone, respect!
Btw, does someone know how to turn off the poll?

Your sketch book is a excellent example of learning and development of one's skills. I felt that I learned more from scrolling through your pages for a few minutes. Then my own sketchbook collection. Keep the great work up. Might go dust of those old learning draw books and start practicing some more.
On the challenge, I will do shoulders and neck connection, you can do the same or something you need to work on.
Nice bone construction studies
MartinC: I'll go Arms, gogo and Thanks!

Awesomes stuff, still cant get over how confident you are with your lines. I see a tape gun, i hate those things, loudest noise ever over an extended period of time, I have to deal with them all the time at work -___-
Jaik: Haha thanks Jaik! Still not enough! And yeah, can imagine, must be annoying! Earphones and music should fix that
Nice fluent strokes. It seems that you are confident in it. Approximately we started thread at same time , but you have 4 pages! Damn, you remind me how lazy I am . One question: What part of Slovakia are you from? (you can say me town if it isn' secret ) Thanks for visiting my thread. I should come to your sketchbook more often. Good luck with drawing.
Ghast: True true :/ have to spend more time on each pieces 1h it's not enough, will do londer drawings, thanks!
blu01: Thanks! You'r welcome, Bratislava, and you?
Small village near Považská Bystrica Soo many studies again. You will become gesture master with this amount of gesture drawings. You can try selfportrait. It's fun and you will learn a lot out of it.
Its good to see you still working hard! You seem to be very passionate about improving!
Two helpful tips:
One is to do more observational things.
For example: sit in a corner of your room and draw exactly what you see. Its important to learn how to draw things in relationships. This will also teach you about other important drawing concepts like proportion, overlapping, and space.
Second tip is to look through the sketchbook of Robogabo and do studies from his work. I suggest him particularly because he has a special emphasis on understanding value structure and simplicity of mark-making. If you do studies from his work it should give you a bit more confidence to approach more complex subject matter.
Most of all, just find something that you are passionate about and start creating art for yourself. Studying can be great, but you have to start putting your learning into practice or else you've missed the point of it all.
Mini mind update..
Thank you Aryeh! i'm trying to, but still pretty lazy
The observation is top, havent done much observation from beginning, but from what i have already done, i can feel the impact of it power and will become as daily habit for sure!
Have seen some of his works and i must say fuuuuuuuuuuucking amazing, he must have fun.. if i will able to study his works, im all in :>
