    More. I have no idea when these were done, other than throughout the past five years or so.

    Scans from my sketchbook

    Basically I've just been strolling around the interwebs, drawing whatever catches my fancy.

    How old is the drawing in the OP? Because it looks as if you've improved your anatomy tremendously over time.

    Everything is better with dinosaurs.

    Hi. The image in the original post I drew just a couple of months ago. I've been working a lot on anatomy lately. Is it possible to get better at anatomy, and still keep what little style I've developed?

    I think styles come with time and studying - so your style might morph the more you study. The more you study, the more control you will have over your style and you will be able to create what you intend to create rather than what just comes out. I dream of those days XD
    I dig the girl with the gas mask tattoo!
    I look forward to seeing more!

    I really hope so. It's so frustrating to have an image in my head and not be able to put it on paper the way I'd like to.

    I'm loving this thread and those studies alot, really lovely and broad range of drawings And I recognise those skulls, I believe from a book called "Anatomy for the artist"? Somewhere online you can find or download a pdf version of it, but it's actually an extremely useful book if you are taking that path down portraiture and anatomical drawings x

    What does "that path" mean? To be honest, I'm new to the world of trying to learn how to REALLY know art. Up until a month ago, I've just been messing around. I was referred to the book Anatomy for the Artist, and I'd love to be referred to other resources too. Thanks!

    More! These were done since the last time I posted. I think there are a few more pages, but I'll have to find wherever I stashed them.

    My scanner didn't scan them very dark, so I lightly photoshopped them in the hopes that the pencil lines would show up better. Did it work?

    Keep going with those gesture studies, they're looking good. I like your newest portrait at the bottom, I would love to see more of those!

    What I've done since my last update:

    The boxy thing is supposed to be a speaker on my desk. It's the first assignment in the study group I joined here: http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=223014

    I also went to the Nelson Atkins Museum of Art and sketched out some paintings and statues that I particularly like there, but my scanner won't scan my bigger sketch book. I'll try to take a picture of it sometime.

    I've been working through several books in the past week or two.
    Facial Expressions by Mark Simon
    The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain by Betty Edwards
    Rendering in Pencil by Arthur L. Guptill
    Bridgman's Complete Guide to Drawing From Life
    The Visual Arts: A History

    Are there any other books or other resources I should read? I'd love to learn more about art history, but I've got a case of information overload. If there is anyway to get thorough but streamlined information please let me know.

    Thanks!

    I've joined a few weekly prompt groups to help with keeping myself constantly drawing and studying. So far I've completed one assignment and I'm working on 3 others. I feel pretty proud of myself, since I'm also reading several art books to better understand what it is I'm trying to do.

    Group 1: http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=223014
    Group 2: http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=209890
    Group 3: http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=224012
    Group 4: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=76955

    I'd like to point out that this guy's stuff is awesome: http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=204939

    I hope it's obvious that I was watching Glee (my dirty secret. Shhhhh), and no one thinks I'm homophobic. :/

    Thanks to everyone that has looked at my stuff and messaged me about it! Thank you also for those of you that look at it and don't message. I know you're out there!

    I've decided that any sketches I post on other threads, I'm also going to post here. Mainly because I'm a little OCD and I want one thread that has all of my work. Oh well.

    The sphere/triangle/square was practice for a group.

    The other pages were more work I found. I have three or four sketchbooks floating around the house, so this might happen quite often. Also, I like to fill pages up as well as I can, so I might end up scanning a single page a couple of times because I've drawn more on it.

    On one of these pages there is stuff scribbled out. That's because it was a little too old and irrelevant for me want to include it with my current sketches that I'm drawing while studying. Another page I drew at the Nelson Atkins.

    1) Upside down guy is a study from Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain. Bulky dude and blocky dude are from Bridgman. Also I randomly drew my cat.

    2) Bridgman

    3) Hand studies for an assignment

    4) WIP for an assignment

    5) More hands for the assignment

    6) Another upside down study from DotRSofB.

    7) The first page from the hand assignment

    I was really having trouble drawing the hands at first, but after working on the Bridgman, and after someone suggested that I take a look at Luca Cambiasi's block drawings, I started to get a better feel for them. Towards the end there I was actually kind of enjoying drawing them, and although my perspective and thumbs are still wonky, I can see some improvement and I was able to draw them faster.

    I have one more task to do with hands, and then they will be done. Although it has been fun learning how to master hands, I'll be glad for a break from them, if only temporarily.

    My second hand task for the hand assignment. I'm sure I'll be saying this over and over in this sketchbook, but I'm really proud of myself since I have very little practice with digital painting or a tablet. I used Paint Tool Sai and my Wacom Bamboo Pen and Ink.

    I experimented with different skin tones, and wanted to have a theme of unity and we must all help one another, no matter our differences. Corny, I'm sure.

    Quite a few sketches since the last time I was on this site. I've gone to Dr. Sketchy's a couple of times, and I joined a local sketch group where we draw objects and each other. Added to that is random images from the internet.

    Thanks for the words in my sketchbook Telephono!

    I'd say the best thing you could do is to pull back and devote some serious time and energy to understanding and being able to effectively use the basics of form and perspective. Don't take that the wrong way though, I need to do the same myself, I didn't devote enough time to it and it's slowing me down, don't make that mistake.

    Smoke,

    You are so very right that I need to work on perspective. Do you know of any good resources for me to look at?

    What do you mean by form?

    Thanks!

    Hiya! thanks for commenting in my SB! just went through yours, stellar stuff here. Also Andrew Loomis has a decent section on perspective in his Figure Drawing for all it's worth, if you're looking for something free that is.

    http://alexhays.com/loomis/

    I'm also working on perspective, the advice many have given me is to just draw and observe from life. If you don't have a doodle pad with you at all times, you can still benefit from looking around and taking visual photos. One of the things i do is i'll try to draw the horizon line in my head. Then kind of observe the people around me relative to where the horizon is.

    My Sketchbook!This scrub needs your guidance

    A couple of uploads. I did an environment painting (my first painting) but photoshop ate it. Woe. I'll have to do another one tomorrow. I hope to be more consistent with my uploads and also break out the acrylics I bought and get pictures of the results!

    Good work on the studies so far! On suggestion will be to start working on bigger sheets of paper, so you're not getting too cramped on a page, running into edges, because then the individual drawings also become cramped. You want to loosen up your mark making and you do this by giving yourself room on the page to swing a pencil if need be. So give it a shot and concentrate on the overall shape of what you're drawing, not the details so much.

    Good luck and keep at it!

    @The_Flying_Dutchman Thank you for your comment! You're right that I need to work on bigger sheets of paper, or at least draw larger on each sheet I'm using, or in other words, only one drawing per sheet. I'm naturally frugal, and I'm trying to teach myself that frugality doesn't work when it comes to art. At this point, I have a smallish scanner, so I don't want to work much larger unless I can find a viable way to photograph my pages for uploading, not that uploading art to the internet is nearly as important as the actual drawing process!

    Following is another self portrait.

    I'm attempting to do a couple of challenges, one to draw 100 expressions, and the other to draw 100 complete drawings. I've attached what I've drawn so far... there are quite a few.

    confused, depressed, desperation, disgust, insane, love, love, nostalgia, happy, regret, sad, embarrassed, shame, skeptical, surprise, whimsical
