    Hmm, nice studies with those bones, I see you are getting a good idea of how they look and how they are, but it would be also very good for you to check how they work together with the body, at least with femur and the foot.

    and thanks for commenting on my stuff again!

    I think the bone studies are good in themselves for learning about perspective. Especially the last two there.

    Posemaniacs is a good site but limited because it's not actually using real people for your references but pixelovely.com uses photographs of real people. You might want to give that a look.

    Thanks for taking the time to comment on my sketchbook (and yay another scot!)

    Darkthur, thanks re my bones. Yep, definitely going to work on fitting things together eventually but right now I'm concentrating on each separate section. Working on knees at the moment then it's on to ankles, feet and pelvis, femur. After that I'll try putting them all together with muscles on top and see how that looks. Pretty boring in a sketchbook I know, all these bone studies, so I'll try to put some other stuff in to break up the monotony a bit. And you're welcome! I like looking at your SB for inspiration and to see what you're doing with your figure work because you're way ahead of me in that area.

    Caspia, yeah, the posemaniacs site is handy for some things because the figures have muscle and tendons showing and thats handy for me to look at and try to reproduce in my own work. I've heard of pixelovely - thanks muchly for the link. They have lots of cool pics of reptiles if it's the site I'm thinking of, so I'll definitely check out their people pics too. Think I need to get some basics under my belt first before trying any more fully skinclad people! Haha, yeah, another Scot! Coolio. I spotted that on your profile but notice you're located in Iceland. Whats it like up there with those volcanoes going off? We keep getting the ash clouds from them and it's messing with our weather no end. Don't know what happened to summer these last two years...

    The volcanoes are just the troll the rest of Europe as far as I can tell. Doesn't affect me much where I am tbh but it's very funny to hear everyone else complain about it, as ever. The countryside is gorgeous here I should take some time to attempt landscapes with it, now that we have about 20 hours of sunlight.
    Constructive criticism is always welcome.

    Haha, yeah always got to be moaning about the weather. It's like a national pastime. I've only ever seen Iceland in pictures and on TV but it looks spectacular. Really prehistoric and unusual and a perfect backdrop for dragons. If you ever get time for taking pictures and don't mind a stranger on the internet plundering them...

    Anyway, back to work. A short interlude for some colour work I think, break up the monotony a bit. Most of these are really old but I don't have any new personal stuff so it's these or nothing.

    All C&C welcome and thanks for looking.

    And back to more recent stuff. I'm putting these in a seperate post because I get easily confused by the attachment manager.

    First is my first feeble attempt to paint a sphere in corel painter. Think I messed up the brush/paint choices by grabbing bristle and acrylic because thats what I'm used to traditionally, but it looks very scrubby and weird... An interesting and addictive experience though so I'll be doing more soon for sure.

    Last is a bunch of bone studies - knees, ankles and feet. Couple more of those then onto the pelvis and femur. Fun.

    Latest batch of bone studies. The pelvis was difficult. Hopefully the more I draw it, the easier it'll get...

    Havent updated this sketchbook for a bit. Been busy with other projects but I've got a few more bone studies to put up.

    A few more of these and full leg studies and I'll start working on muscles. Any comments/suggestions very much appreciated as usual.

    Cheers

    I like the bone studies very much, altough I think drawing the combination of bones and muscles would have more advantages on your full-body studies. Keep it up!

    Thanks Jarkuzy! I hear you on the bones and muscles combos but I'm nothing if not pedantic in my study methods. I cant work on muscles until I know how it feels to draw the bones if that makes any sense?

    One more disconnected bone study then I'll move on to more complex stuff. Really just wanted to post my latest wip. It's a rough idea for an illustration to accompany a post apocalyptic short story I've got on submission. Just in the idea storming stage at the moment so if anyone has any suggestions for improvements, I'd be very appreciative.

    Thanks

    Wow you've been working quite hard with all those anatomy drawings! I think they are good, perhaps you could also work with some form while drawing those schemes by adding some more light and volume to them. Who knows, you could get some good practice for both topics; anatomy and volume, in the same place!

    Thanks, Darkthur! Thats a good suggestion to include some shading and work on form along with the anatomy. I'll keep it in mind for my next session.

    Havent got much to update in here because so much of it's related to publishing rights, but here's a couple of pieces.

    First is a sketch for a Wendigo illustration for a horror magazine and the second two are random panels from a webcomic I'm working on. Been trying out ink pencils because I'm afraid of using coloured liquid inks badly and messing the panels up.

    If anyone has any comments or suggestions for future improvements, I'd love to hear them.

    Cheers

    A couple of bits and pieces - anatomy and two alien sketches from the films. Thinking of developing the first one further - maybe finish it off in pen and ink for the practice - so it's a work in progress at the moment.
