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 ^.^
Very good start and i can see you have talent, but we really need to see more of your work, so give it a shot, i or we don't bit at least not that hard.
Really good art im 16 too and i just started posting my sketches yesterday.
I've been drawing the nude figure since I was 13 ^.^. So I got a plenty headstart, but I need to keep using my youth as an advantage!!! And thank you so much!
Go 16 year olds! Power to the young! . I'll check yo' sketchbook out and welcome to CA! This is the BEST art forum EVER!!
These were a bit of vent out studies, 'cuz I was mad. -__-.

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.
Reference belongs to *Kxhara on Deviantart.
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~!
Thanks, this helped me out a lot! I've been having trouble on that especially when the pose in reference such as that. Thank you!
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.
man am i weak on legs! This is batch #1. Taking a break and then going to work on batch #2 of legs, tackling any problems I can see with my eyes.
not my best, not my worst. need to start working on proportion more.
thanks! did some proportion study on loomis :nod: x3.
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.
Yeah, I know posemaniacs, but I never really went on. I'll def. try that out now. Does it have to be ballpoint? I just have regular pens XD;.
edit; oh ballpoints are regular pens. /shot.

Realized I can't draw hands for crap while painting this lovely picture of a woman. Or eyes T__T. Or shading the faceplan from above...
GUESS WHAT IMMA BE DOING FOR THE WHOLE NIGHT expect some studies!
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
PS: Also I prefer this site to Posemaniacs. Posemaniacs while nice and all can throw you off a bit. http://lovecastle.org/draw/
what do you mean by that? do i just stare at the images??
edit: nevermind XD;.

After doing what you said to do, ( and a little more) I finally got something with close to unstiffness :cry:. Sweet!
really loved how the middle one came out . Just Warm ups.
will upload more, i just need to draw them.
good study technique. keep it up and you'll find ur pen doing Amazing things. -loomis quote-
Today was cool, not bad not good. drew some stuff to keep my mind off things :3. Just silly things from my mind to see if i could get the organic shapes right.
Another blah day in May. 18 more days untill regents and then off to the pleasant sounds of summer for me to explore.
Playing around in photoshop and other silly things. Just experimenting.
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!
Thanks very much
Decided to do concept art of my "Avatar" on a avatar rpg site. Love the design so I decided to do fanart of it XD
getting back into it. I can see so much improvement now T.T
Just had fun with this....
wanted to make her wise and tiresome type... one of my characters.
