    These were done while watching Robertson's DvD. First one from imagination, second by drawing along step by step.

    Doing exercises from "Creative perspective for artists and illustrators" by Ernest W. Watson.

    I tried to just freehand determine my vanishing points in the first drawing... But that would be wrong and didn't feel rigt for an exact perspective exercise.

    Most important thing I learned: lines on paralles planes always share a "horizon" (vanishing trace). So when you turn the house on it's right side, the lines of the roof converge to the same vanishing trace.

    I spend a weekend in the country side and did some sketching. All from life except for the last one.

    Don't make your lines so hard when doing portraits (no outlines) and build the forms more. The cow portrait you did well with this--do the same with humans.

    woah lovely life studies. I like how loose and expressive you manage to keep the lines.

    I know a lot of artists here do life studies from their heads. Which i've found is a really useful tool. Basically go lifedrawing and really study a certain area like the arm muscles or neck muscles. Then next time you are drawing without reference try and recall what you studied and see how well you do. You may already be doing this. But I found it's been helping me out alot recently so thought i'd share it.

    Good luck, look forward to seeing more

    Hi, thx4dropping by.
    I see you're busy doing all those studies. Especially the perspective stuff looks intimidating. I should propably repeat some perspective stuff as well.

    Wow, great style! I love the loose lines, but I'd love to see you work on your facial anatomy! The eyes look a bit wonky to me, but maybe that's just me? Keep up the good work!

    Sketchbook --I'd love some feedback!

    Jacky-Boy: Thx man! Indeed, it's good practise to memorize parts of the body and then try to find / see them during life drawing. I'll use it when my schedule returns to studying figure drawing.
    shockowaffel: Thx, it's not as bad when you have Scott Robertson's DvDs to guide you through it.
    Artezianin:Thank you, I will.
    AllyAlbon: Thanks! I already see allot of things wrong with it, but hey, more motivation for the next piece.
    Randomeister: Thx! You are very right, I've hardly spent time on studying the head. Got Faigin and Loomis lying around to help me with that but it'll take some months till I get around to them. Next up in my self study schedule is environment drawing.

    Dancer study done from photo ref while riding the train. Total 30 mins or so.

    A concept sketch to practice value painting. And some exaggerated (and wonky) anatomy. Sketch 5 and 6 contain small copies of Joe Madureira and Petar Meseldzija drawings.

    I'm working through Jack Hamm's "Drawing scenery and seascapes". Here's some composition practise and a few random sketches. More trees, rocks and landscapes coming up later this month.

    Wood texture studies from life. I'm not sure the second one conveys it's material / texture well enough. What do you guys / gals think: easily recognizable or could be anything?

    Rock texture copies from Jack Hamm. Composition sketches for paintings that I want to finish next weekend.

    A tree near my house has been drawing my attention for a few months now. This morning I went out and tried to capture some of the impression it's been making. I like how it branches really low to the ground instead of having a "maintained by man / straight trunk" look.

    The cloud studies were done from photo ref.

    Udonhead: yeah, feels like I'm not getting enough time for painting in PS, but that'll change later on when my 3 month goals start focussing on painting and working through the Gurney books.

    Pete: thx man. Jack Hamm has been a crazy good read. Learned allot so far, especially about composition. I'm on page 92 now, so I've got some water/wave sketches coming up.

    Thx a mil for the replies guys.
