    Perspective is always a good idea - you can never do enough perspective studies!

    This is my first time learning perspective and it's amazing how much it teaches you.

    Hands, hands and some more hands. Also, I did a metropolitan drawing from imagination using one-point perspective.

    I have loads of time and motivation now but I'm not always sure I'm doing the right thing the right way. Does anyone have some tips on how to learn anatomy & perspective better. I have the books required but do you just read and draw the drawings in the book or what?

    Theres a lot of talent in here so far. Good stuff Meteor. I do see a few issues with proportions in your figure studies, I tend to have trouble with that myself. THe best way to learn the human form is to draw from life and also be sure to check out any and all books by Brigeman (sp?), Loomis, and Villpu. They help a lot. Good Luck!!

    definitely dude. reading and really trying to understand it is the biggest key, the drawings are there to help explain it visually and provide a starting point for drawing the body parts. the next step (and most important) is to draw them from your imagination. it may not be pretty at first, but repetition is the key. so definitely read first, copy second, and then try to draw them without looking at the examples. try to understand and think through what the parts look like from all angles. the more you think as you are drawing, and the more you draw, the easier it will become to remember. understanding these things will help you know what you are looking at (and looking for) when you draw from life, which is also important. drawing from imagination and drawing from life work hand-in-hand, and improvement in one should feed improvement in the other.

    that's a start. i applaud the motivation, dude. good luck.

    You've really improved a lot since your first few posts. Although I did absolutely love your earlier work as well. Keep up the good work .

    Good to see you working on the basics =D having a good understanding of the fundamentals is really the key to climb all the levels up to the mastery. Even if it is boring sometimes.
    I would even recommend to you to do exercises like drawing straight lines out of your arms. I know, such stuff soundy awful boring. But I even do it for myself because I suck at straight lines, but we need them for proper perspective drawings, or backgrounds, or many kinds of shapes out there. After lines we can even do maaaany circles, ellipses and later cylinders, cubes etc. Page after page. Believe me, it will pay off. For everything you will draw. Still lives will be easier and figure drawing too. They're the fundamentals you need to construc stuff in the 3D Space. So do some of those drawings every day together with things you enjoy. I'm sure you will improve!
    It's a pity that your pictures are so blurred sometimes, but I think, you made a very good job on the last drawing! Keep it up!

    A project for school in Concept Design.
    The assignment is showing a historical event without showing it.


    Neave's Sketchbook

    Drawn, photographed & designed by myself; the historical event is Man's First Powered Flights

    I've got a lot of other things I've been doing but I'm too lazy to photograph them all.

    Good progress here. You've got quite a lot of good advice already, and it does look like you're starting to progress a little towards bigger brushes, more careful strokes, less scribbling... remember, the direction of every stroke you make says something about the form you're describing. The lynx looks like you got too caught up with texture and lost the form a bit, both on the lynx itself and on the rock its sitting on. It looks more messy than rock/furlike. An important note about fur - I'm assuming you're drawing with a tablet, so make sure your brush settings have the size jitter set to pen pressure so you get tapering strokes. There's a lot of cases where that will do more harm than good, but on hair or fur, having strands end with a round edge really hurts the effect. =)
