    FIRST PIC: other knees from Bammes, the one in the middle was invented.
    SECOND PIC:sketching the S curve from "manga sketching vol.1", I forgot to correct the little "T overlap" at pelvis and chest intersection. I felt that was the key to the pose.

    - Quick sketches from earthsworld: I do them quickly, very quickly, trying to capture in a "gesture" manner the emotion of every character

    I'm going to recommend that you do some studies of spheres, cylinders & cubes, preferably white on white. It'll help no end in getting you to see form and build it up into what you want to draw.

    I read the thread in AD and it's tough finding the method that makes you go, "So that's what they were talking about!" Everyone learns differently, but you've still got to give a few of them a good shot.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    Pretty solid stuff - your lines will get more smooth and flowing with time 'n practice. That bloke in the baseball cap looks alright, but his shoulders are a bit too broad? The human shoulders are two heads wide.

    Thanks.

    You see the only teaching I've received from a teacher (whom I care a lot) is "Learn to draw the figure and you'll uncounsciosly learn the fundamentals of drawing); so I'm trying to stick with that, because I've seen that, to some extent, it works on me.

    He was a bigger than average guy but maybe I went a bit too far, yes.

    I take those from earthsworld.com and I just sketch like a crazy; I don't give more than 20-30 seconds to each person. Eventually I come back later to learn shading and rendering but everything is done pretty "trance like", apart from the Bammes studies where I try to understand what am I drawing, why, how and where

    It might have worked for you, but have you considered that you might learn faster with other methods?

    Absolutely, I'd like to have my mind open as a universe and also be ready to understand what can work and not for me.

    I've committed to ink sketch everything I can, at least 30 minutes everyday.

    First two are sketches of my wife and my TV; around 5 minutes each.

    Last 3 sketches are from random images in Google, around 2-3 minutes each:

    P.S.

    Keep doing those studies, they help a lot. This guy helped me:
    http://www.ctrlpaint.com/

    He's got a lot of free videos and teaches the basics along with theory.
    And don't stop drawing.

    I'm checking out that site, thank you.

    I'm posting also another study of knees (Bammes), I'm trying to study each muscle/functional group for 7 days and then pass on another one.

    This has been done in a hurry, and my motivation wasn't at the top.

    Quick-sketching from movies apart from a sketch of my dog asleep-

    NOTES: when I do quick sketches like these, I feel compelled to capture everything in the quickest time possible, my hand wants to continuously move and I feel the need to "sculpt" the figure from a maze of lines of which every of them has its purpose.
    Maybe this is a result of having trained for quite a bit with gesture drawing but is the only way I'm able to start a drawing. Another problem I'd like to solve is that, during sketches, I don't like to hover on details, neither observe them, while I feel the desire to portray the "sense" of the scene.

    I wonder how I'll solve this resistance of mine or how I could use it to my advantage...

    I had this image in my mind of a crouched man giving his back to something and I sketched it. I've filled up the rest without visualizing as clearly as the crouched man.

    note: clearly visualizing a drawing in your mind complete the 90% of the work for me
