    It's good, but I would keep using reference for the parts you're having trouble with, particularly the face and the legs. Drawing from the mind is fun for relaxation but you can't learn new things from what's already in your head.

    I did quick 5-10 minute sketches playing close attention to the angles of the legs. Going to be working on the head, feet,arms and hands tomorrow. Oh and more legs. Legs legs leggsss. Probably also going to do some foreshortening stuff too.

    Thanks Lhune ^.^

    Did some quick doodles, not really paying attention to the details.There are a lot of mistakes, but I was focasing mainly on the angle and not the measurement. I have some hand studies somewhere, but... I can't find it!

    Left some skull/face and forshortened female body from the worms eye view, the one you see now was a quick one ! .
    though, it's in my dads car so when I find it, I'll show you guys.

    I like the wispy lines that you use when you have confidence in your subject and you know what you're doing, that shows a real skill. I would suggest doing some anatomy studies of specific features like the arms, head and hands.

    In reference to the last picture you posted, you've done a good job of getting the angle of her left leg but the rest of the figure lacks structure. I just did a quick redline to show the basics of what i mean, the red is a few basic corrections to the form and the blue shows the parts of structural importance and the relationship of the hips to the shoulders. I hope you find this of some use and good luck with your further drawings~!

    Did a couple of face studies, drawing the skull first before everything else and decided to paint this from imagination with the knowledge I gained.

    I like the face painting, good job, maybe it would help to work on anatomy and gesture

    Hey

    You are right.
    Focus on proportions more.
    Also try to start practicing anatomy more.
    It will definitely pay off.

    Keep going

    Do you know posemaniacs.com already? Maybe it could help you to do some very quick gesture drawings, using a ball pen or a felt pen. No pencil, no eraser. Be confident about your lines. It's no problem if some drawings went bad. That happens to all of us. But you can improve your linework and your anatomy drawings that way.
    Loomis' mannekin frame is really good for such exercises as posemaniacs too.

    Lookin' good, keep fillin up this sketchbook and you'll be good in no time. The faces are your strong suit. Take a Norman rockwell book or any other book that has a billion figures in it and draw every single one.

    Wanted to also say that you are very "stiff" style. Being very construction like. Try some Blind Gesture Self Portraits to loosen up, taking about 5 minutes on each one without picking up your pen. Then go draw those figures out with some sweet sweet gesture to get some movement. Its just sketches after all.

    Would like to see you try a master copy, and you might draw your hand a lot, and also draw everything else. That seems to be the solution

    Welcome to

    PS: Also I prefer this site to Posemaniacs. Posemaniacs while nice and all can throw you off a bit. http://lovecastle.org/draw/

    Nice work with the sketches! Your feminine form is certainly well done, and I'm liking the expressions that you're coming up with. The painting isn't too bad, either - nice work with shading, although after seeing the last little addtion I do think you should experiment more with colours and the like.

    Hell, all the same, good work and good luck!
