to learn to draw?”
It's my style, don't be hatin'
My very first sketchbook in all it's failed 1 page glory (dec07-jan08) http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=114384
My second sketchbook, 4 pages but still lacking (may08-may10) http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=127243

week 1 of figure drawing in chronological order
gestures are all 1 minute, otherwise everything is 20-25 minutes
I haven't been in a legit figure drawing class in 2-3 years so this has been a lot of fun
The teacher is pushing me to slow down and focus on line, not proportion, construction or values. He isn't my favorite teacher in the world but I certainly try very hard to work on pursuing the things he encourages in class and I hope I'm making obvious progress with them. Are drawings like these appropriate for a college app portfolio or are they not finished enough?
Lookin good, maybe get some portrait work in to get the faces a bit better.
week 2 dump 1
beginning to experiment with line
week 2 dump 2
some sketchbook pages
these felt really good and I'm happy with the result, but I do have to acknowledge that I was getting way ahead of myself by trying to tackle value so soon and in 20-25 min poses
standing poses are all 20 min, seated/reclining are 25
thanks p sage :3
some sketchbook stuff
first one is referenced from "Anatomy for the Artist" by Sarah Simblet, second is from http://www.flickr.com/photos/digital...7616869491431/ and the rest are from the german Bammes books
Very nice progress here! Keep up the practice!

Your figures are really solid- great volume, even when your forced to stick to just lines ^_^

I've taken on mentoring my roommate http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=227475 which has been a lot of fun (for both of us I hope)

I love your skull studies btw I need to make mine look more like those.

I'm liking the Michael Hampton book a lot for demonstrating 3 dimensional construction
went sketching at The Museum of Natural History with hem and anonanon and others without sketchbook threads, it was really enjoyable and I'd love to do it again (and perhaps not be quite so late )

more from the museum
Did a sketch group thing with a few friends, had a fantastic time and got some great sketches out of it. We took turns posing for each other starting with some shorter poses and working up to a max of 5 minutes. We had a couple fencing sabers and a stool for props and managed to have some fun with the poses just with that. Can't wait to do this again.
the figures were done at the art students league, I did a figure drawing class there in September
Landscape done with crayons
unicorn soldier in battle undergarments. wtf?
speed painted head done with ref for structure
head sketches done while watching the gnomon head drawing video
