Well, I think your spine studies are incredible. Were you looking a life size skeleton for the study?
I am impressed that you can draw on the bus. I would end up really sick if I tried. I can also definitely see that your gesture sketches are getting better over time.

@hala:Thanks for the illustration/diagram! I'll try both approaches and I'm still waiting for the loomis book to be delivered from amazon.com heh heh. Yeah, I haven't even got through the lower body in my anatomy book(it's Pecks anatomy book) just the sacrum, and I really need to get to it. For the master copies who would you suggest? I think I might have some Michelangelo stuff in a book somewhere....
@Reutte:Hey Reutte. I just draw from peck's anatomy book. I wish I could afford a life size skeleton. I guess i'm cheating when I draw on the bus because I usually wait until it stops or slows down enough for me to draw
@ranunkel:Thanks, I'll try!
@Bing!:Thanks for the suggestion! I think I can attempt a master copy
Really, Thanks guys for the critique and encouragement I appreciate it.
I wish I had more to show you guy's. I was kinda sick this memorial day weekend so I didn't get to draw as much as I wanted too.(I also procrastinated and had to hurry to finish some non art related school work)
First some composition/perspective stuff for my class.The first layout assignment is a high angle shot. I'm in the group that's doing the Aztec's and the ball game they played.For the first image's thumbnails I tried to emphasize the rubber ball as an important object.
These are for the parallel assignment to the first: a low angle shot.
And this is the close to final image before I expand it to 12". The blue pencil lines are where my teacher corrected my perspective.
And a page of bus drawing.

Haha, actually only drawing when you're not moving makes it seem more impressive. Your new bus sketch is better than the last one with the added texture of the hair.
I like that you actually draw the vanishing point outside of the panel for your assignment. It's a great combination of gestureish stuff and perspective.

@Reutte: Hey, thanks Reutte.
@yogeshj25: Thanks I will.
Well, this is a bit late guys. I'm sorry I don't post as much as you guy's but that's one of the reasons I joined a SSG, to motivate myself to post more and think more about critique. Also, if you think my critiques in your sketchbooks are convoluted or lacking, please tell me and I'll try to get better. Sorry for the whole spiel, I just think i'm not doing as much as you guy's and I want to, so I'll try and do better.
I also got my loomis book on friday, which is really exciting, so I started going through it and did the male 8 head proportional model:
Here are some figure drawings from some weeks ago. These two I'm not proud of(the propotions on the neck are waay off ugh).
I like these I like better than the other ones, but they still suck:

Hi. Your studies are great, I can't recommend anything new, everyone elses comments are spot on. Just keep at it and check your proportions, oh and don't worry about mistakes just keep posting your stuff. The last ones show good progress, I like the half hour pose, good sense of depth.

Don't be so hard on yourself. It takes work and time. Your recent figures are pretty good, and your foreshortened pose is very good.
June 7th, 2011 #25
Well the loomis model is great though his calves look a little off. They seem kinda bulgy. The neck is off but since you're aware, just be watchful. I tend to elongate my torsos myself. Also the hip on the one reclining kinda seems to be sprouting from the side a bit.
And they're better than what I can do, so I wouldn't say they suck per say. XD

Hey man, don't worry about posting. Your practice shouldn't be about getting something up to post, focus on you and what you need to do! Also, your comments are great, you put effort into providing feedback, that's all that counts.
Keep studying Loomis, and really soak in what he writes about too. All I can suggest is to keep doing more, repeat things if you have to, until you are solid in them and can redraw them without looking back at the book.
KEEP IT UP!!

Yea, what hala said
Getting mileage with your drawing is the most important factor for learning to draw well

@Dayle: Thanks! Yeah, that was one of the only long poses I got work on in the year. I wish I could do more although I do like the short poses.
@Asatira:Thanks. I'm glad to heart that I did better on my foreshortening. Still have trouble with, but who doesn't.
@Reutte: Oh, yeah the proportions on the loomis study are a bit off, even though I kept telling myself that the point of the study was to get the proportions down accurately. Also, thanks for pointing out the hip problem I, hadn't noticed, which shows that I really need to get through my anatomy book. I'll have more time in the summer so maybe.
@hala: I'm glad to hear that my posts aren't too confusing or poorly written. I will keep studying and I'll keep trying to get some practice in as much as I can.
@AnthonyV:Thanks AnthonyV, mileage is important and I will try my best.
Really guy's, I appreciate your comments and will try my best to improve, and to my SSG, I'll keep trying to give help as often as I can.
Well, today I went to the Oakland zoo and getting there was pretty difficult because I have no car and it takes 3 and a half hours to get there using public transit. I really need to learn how to drive.
I went to meet my teacher with his other class and listen to the lecture though I didn't get to hear because I was late.
Here's some stuff from the trip.
I like these more than the others. Pigs are fun because they stay pretty still while you draw them.

I love looking at others' zoo animal sketches. Nice job with them, able to capture the gist of each animal and their poses. I enjoy the bats and the pigs. Yes, animals that stay put are very helpful models, but you probably improve your sketching skill with more active ones. As you do more, progress from the general shape to a few lines (simple sweeps, really) to help get form and overlap.
June 12th, 2011 #30
You should draw very lightly with the big curvy sweeps (like you are doing) to capture the large masses and gesture. BUT THEN redraw the animal on top of your gesture with darker lines to fix the inaccuracies and really chisel the forms. For example the giraffe has several dark lines for the neck but we should only see two.My Sketchbook - Have a look and say hi
