Wow, lovely studies.
I like your wrestling studies the sense of movement you get is great, I also draw people on buses and trains aha
Keep going and I look forward to your venture into colour and digital medium
Niice stuff Kapri, your studies are getting better and better, particulary your studies from life. Keep doing it!
Your gesture drawings are great! your grasp of anatomy seems solid. i wish my quick sketches could look like that, haha. I especially like a lot of the stuff in your 3rd post. Good job! (:

sketchbook. comments/advice appreciated (:
Egg0 & neonndreams: thx guys!
Here's a gesture / portrait (both from photo ref) and some perspective stuff.
Just finished Chelsea's "Perspective! for Comic Book Artists" and reading "Creative Perspective for Artists and Illustrators" by Ernest W. Watson now. I've been trying to create a perfect cube in perspective and Chelsea's floorplan method gave me the results below.
The first 2 are way to distorted. Maybe I placed the cube too far outside the cone of vision?
First one's from my second day of classes @ Wackers academy Amsterdam. I'm taking a 7 month weekly course which takes up all of my saturday. Loving it so far doing still lives and practising perspective.
The rest are from my sketchbook and the last one is my first attempt at painting a color study a few weeks ago. Done on an iPad from live reference while riding the train.
It's just a signature:
Overtoom: thx mate, I think I'll do some more fighters gestures soon.
One of the sketches I did on the Rubens trip turned out bad. I have looked up the original painting again online and tried to fix my bad sketch digitally. Still a WIP. Anyone got some pointers?
1st = original from Rubens
2nd = bad sketch from trip
3rd = digital sketch done on top of the scanned sketch
PS: I think Rubens made a huge perspective mistake with this guys back. We shouldn't be seeing that much of his back. Kinda like this captain America one lol: http://www.sequentialtart.com/archiv.../0700/bb_1.jpg
I tried fixing this in my version.
PS PS: just noticed my version kinda looks pregnant, lol. Will have to fix that later on.
