It's been almost a year again and almost nothing has been done/changed. A lot of the drawing I do is completely unstructured, whimsical little things and irregular. I have no schedule for study and no plan of action really. I'm hoping to change that. The next submission I add will be a step towards progress and not an "oh, I feel like coloring spheres and drawing random organic shapes"-type thing; hopefully something on which I can get real-life, living, breathing, pulsating, oozing feedback. So, yeah. That's my absence and such in a nutshell.
Thanks for the tips, Tim Murphy! I'll be sure to keep them in mind when I try the mannequins again. C:
Today's upload is of MMA fighters' —man and woman—bodies, my socked feet and a greyscale attempt. I'm working to get more organized and not just practice things as they come to me. I'd also like to add more than what I do considering I don't post everyday.... more studies or something.

I've had a large amount of energy drink and I cannot stop shaking.
30 second gestures and ~15 minute gestures/figures. For the sake of criticizing myself, I could have done much more with the 30 sec ones. All of them really... These were tons of fun to do. Will do more. C&C/feedback is welcome as always.
Is the "Ai Se Eu Te Pego" craze going on in your town?
More 90 second gestures (I probably shouldn't work so large on these so that I'll have time to finish them) and a study of a MMA fighter I did to try to get a little familiar with certain muscles. This was done yesterday before I became ill, so more should be posted today.
Good work man, I can see you are improving
Also well done for keeping up the posting after your little slow start with like 1 year between posts, hehe
I try to do some "smart" and sometimes boring studies, and then I do something random which is pure FUN in between. That way drawing doesn't become a chore to me, but I can improve and keep it fun and not just lose myself in bones and muscles, wondering why.
Thank you, JulieSS! I should probably do more "smart" studies. I'm terrified of doing anything fun/personal because I feel that if I enjoy it too much, I'll somehow ruin it; I'm too much of a perfectionist and it's killing me. Even still, I'll just have to give it a try.
It's been seven months. I have very little to show for it to be brutally honest except doodles and half-assed attempts at art. I didn't want to post anything without actually having something to show for my time being absent. It's boo-boo--yes. But I wouldn't feel right just posting "I'm back" or something similar without a(n) (unfinished) drawing (no less) of some sort and a sketch page from February. Hopefully there'll be more to come if I can get over the fear of using the first page of my new sketchbook...
Any comments and insight are very much welcome as always.

I've done it again. I'm not going to offer an explanation because it'll only be an excuse. All I can say is that life got in the way for a year. I'm not going to make promises to upload, we'll just see what happens. Here's... stuff (let me know if it is too large):
More from my sketchbook. Quick figures from Infamous: Second Son, things from my head and a head. A lot of the things I do and submit feel to be very unstructured and aimless... I'm trying hard to maintain my drive. I feel that a lot of my procrastination comes from a fear of failure, even though I strongly believe that failure is the first step towards learning and improving. Even with that in mind, it's difficult to place my recent hesitations. Bleh...
