Requiem88: thx man, I feel I still have allot to learn when it comes to gestures though. Will try to post more soon.
More pelvis studies:
Be more patient, you are not patient enough. Observe light and shadow (the planes of the figure) more carefully. Do you know the O'Reilly method?
pixel cheetah: thx for the feedback man, I have only read a little about the O'Reilly method. I'm actually studying plane changes and how they are shown by value change right now. Will attach some results to my next post.
For now: a study of this awesome Jeff Simpson painting and a mix of old / recent quick sketches.

First one is a shading study using Scott Robertson's "halfway to black" system. Second and third one are done from life observation with white, wooden geo forms.
More gestures / quick sketches coming in the next few days.
I'm starting a life drawing course at the end of september so I hope to create some more finished pieces there.
Thanks for dropping by my sketchbook, I appreciated your crit.
I am really liking the work you are posting here, especially the gestures. They look like they have a good deal of thought behind them.
If I had to give a crit at this point, I'd have to say that you need to slow down a little. Maybe I'm assuming a bit too much here, but your work (especially portraits) looks like it could benefit a lot from a little more intent. By intent I specifically mean a little more care regarding your mark making. make sure that every mark you make on that paper counts.
Maybe that was a bit too abstract, but I hope it helps. Keep updating, and once again, thanks for dropping by.
Really nice a focused drawings here. I too would be interested to see some more finished pieces, but anyway, you have inspired me to get to some more sketching. So thank you.
Vritra: thanks allot man. You're not assuming too much at all. You're actually pretty right, haha.
90% of te stuff I have done are quick sketches. Because of the short timeframe most secondairy lines are put down without much thought (after establishing the main proportions).
I really need to take more time and produce some more finished pieces. Will be starting a saturday drawing / painting course at the beginning of october. Apart from that I'll be working on producing some more digital pieces.
JackAnimated: thx mate!
Hey Kapri i really like your sketchbook , espacilly the gesture & figure drawings, you need to do more and more of anatomy studies with analyzin and memorizin in the muscles and bones , and apply what you learned from life and this is a good site for figure refrences ( link )
Sorry for my long absence. I´ve been on a trip to Greece and started a drawing class recently.
Here are some sketches I did while I was in Greece. Currently busy with work during the day and a freelance project in the evening so I only have time for quick sketches on the train now.
Will post some work from my drawing class and some more finished digital pieces when I have time though.
