Thank you jorvaa! Figure studies have always felt kind of scary and challenging to me too, but I have found Posemaniacs and Gesture Drawing tool very helpful for that!
Doing quick gesture drawings is actually really fun and not scary at all!
Well here are again some 30sec drawings from posemaniacs. Also tried negative space drawing, which was quite interesting but also surprisingly hard. Then I also made couple of figures from imagination and tried to do negative space drawings of them too.
I would love to see more pencil drawings and sketches of people with at much value and detail as the cat and dog (akita/shepard mix?) on your first post. The cat's eyes are really beautifully rendered.
Nice gesture and posing sketches here though - I'll enjoy keeping an eye out for more from you!

Hey, you have amazing studies. Your drive is brillient, personally I have to do stuff from imagination or I'll go crazy. Hats off to you or sticking at the studies. I particulary like your digital photo studies, you can see improvement with each one, keep it coming!
Always looking for feedback, so feel free to stop by any of these, cheers.
Saara: Kiitos paljon! I think these negative space drawings are doing good to my lines!
etneid: Thank you very much! I know I should do more detailed and time-consuming drawings, but somehow it is just really hard to start them, don't know why. Maybe because the time spent drawing is so short after working days? But I will start doing more detailed drawings very soon.. Maybe not faces yet because my anatomy sucks still. But something else, maybe still lives or bones!
Riox: Thank you, glad you like my studies! I will try to keep em coming as often as possible!
Well here are some more studies, something weird from imagination and a terrible speedpainting (took 2hours and it still sucks, darn). Why is it always so that I can see the faults when I've decided to stop painting. Will I really get better in these by doing them, will I will I?
1. Some flowers I did for mother's day card (it's been a long since I've used water colors, but they felt kind of good..).
2-3. Some stuff from imagination.
4. Some studies from life.
5. Men watching ice hockey.

Good stuff! Alot of fine posestudies you got there, good lines
Depending on what you want to achieve with the posemaniac studies you might want try changing the time. Try doing some 60s or 45s concentrating on the size and space. Naturally if you want to focus on movement and general feeling the 30s could do fine, I just find it more helpful to give me enough time to work fast without the need to rush. I think it's better to take a bit too much time than go for too short durations. The negative spaces are also awesome for learning space and size.
I always get too scribbly even thoguh I'm trying to get rid of that x.x;
good stuff, keep up the good work

Kvenh: Thank you! I've been actually trying to focus more on the movement with the 30 sec drawings, but I know I should start doing more the longer ones! Kind of got maybe too carried away with the 30secs because it is so much fun, hehe.
Well I finally started to learn anatomy! So now instead of boring gesture studies you'll be having lots and lots of anatomy studies, wii
Of course I'll be continuing the gesture studies still also, so worry not you will see them here too.
mmm still in black and white .. come on i was expecting i come back and see 100 paintings from u..
beautiful work my friend.. keep them coming
