    KT's Sketchbook. Joining in the Deathline Challenge.

    Hi. My names Kendall. I've been a lurker on here for a while now but I finally got up the nerve to start a sketchbook. I'm 22 and I'm currently attending community college. I want to improve and I appreciate any comments and critique.

    Hello, Kendall!

    Welcome and good idea on starting a sketchbook!

    It's also good to see you did a skeleton sketch, and even made sure to keep proportions in check via the headcount. Just start reading any (or all) books on anatomy and drawing by Bridgeman, he's a good start.

    Also, start to carry a sketchbook around with you 24/7, take it out and draw things along your daily activities, whether it be a plant, tissue box or other person. Just keep challenging yourself and try drawing EVERYTHING.

    Another way to help improve is by doing Posemaniac's 30 second gestures at least one or two pages a day.

    Anyways, enough rambling, keep going, you can do it~.

    Keep it up m8;p In some of your skulls the cranial mass is too small,one of the best books which gives you proportions and construction is Burne Hogarth's book on drawing heads ;p

    I think your life drawing and anatomy drawing skills are good mate, keep referencing and use books by andrew loomis and George b Brdigman, they are similar to what you're doing, keep em coming

    shako:Thanks, although I never can seem to get the angles right even though I've drawn them so many times.

    fransua:By cranial mass do you mean the cranium itself? Sorry if I'm misunderstanding you I just want to make sure. I am currently going through Peck's anatomy book but I have looked into Hogarth.

    Dannyphoto:Hey thanks. I have Bridgman's books but I haven't gone through Loomis' books in a while and have been meaning to look back into them.

    Sorry for the late replies, I've been a bit busy. I went to to WonderCon today and it was great.I got some art books and listened to some advice from the artists. All in all it was great and I'm going back tomorrow.

    Here's some of those gestures from class.

    Good work with the anatomy. It's good that you're tackling the gestures, bones, and muscles.
    What I think would really help you is practice drawing the large masses of the figure. It'll help you understand a streamlined outside appearance of figure (which connects with your knowledge of the inside of the figure, ex. bones and muscles).
    Check out the sections on the manikin and block form in Loomis's book
    Andrew-Loomis-Figure-Drawing-For-All-its-Worth
    Also when you are comfortable, try out longer drawings, like with a photo (or from life if you can). You don't have to finish the drawing in one session. You will discover the more subtle things about the figure that you'll miss amongst rushing though short gestures.
    And don't worry about knowing the names of the muscles , it's only used for explaining anatomy in classes and books. Knowing the 3d form and how it connects to each other is the goals.
    Keep up the good work, also this is an amazing resource Gesture Photo Drawing tool thingy

    Hey Thanks AnthonyV! Yeah, my teacher also told me that I had trouble with masses and construction of the figure. I've also been meaning to do more from loomis but then I found out figure drawing for all it's worth was being reprinted so I pre-ordered it a while ago and have been waiting for it to arrive. And thanks for the gesture drawing link, I'll try it out later.

    So, now that we've decided to make a SSG, I'll try to do more studies and post more in everyone's sketchbook and my own.

    Here's a spine study I did a while ago.

    And here's some stuff from drawing on the bus. Bus drawing is fun although a bit difficult when it gets bumpy or turns.(the leaves were drawn when I got off the bus if you were wondering.)
