I started a speedpainting from a photograph but in a couple of hours of hasty painting I decided I really liked how it was going and was happy with the painting stage, but since there was no structural drawing stage I wasn't pleased with some of the wonkiness in her head.
I decided to start over entirely but to put some serious effort into the construction before any painting, so that's what the second image is. So far...not happy with it, but still hopeful that this might pay off if I stick with it.
anatomically dubious cat sketches
First two are anatomy studies from the book Strength Training Anatomy, which I found a copy of while helping a friend move and have found really handy
The last three are from visiting a friends studio where myself and a group of 5 others idly doodled on a large sheet of paper with crayons and pastels over conversation.
-the entire sheet
-a menstrual volcano, with pubic hair and the newly discovered std: my little ponies
posemaniacs gestures and timed photo studies
posemaniacs warmups and a bunch of timed photo studies
the fuzzy fox study was an hour

I laughed so hard I choked when I saw your volcano. Thanks!
He who has a why to live can bear almost any how.

Really cool sketchbook. I really like your figures.
I was a slacker today compared to the last few
Hey! I just went through your sketchbook and although I fear I don't have any critique or constructive criticism to offer, I think it's amazing!
Your work ethic and technique are super-impressive to me. I want to emulate it, after seeing the intensity with which you study. I am reaching for my sketchbook just now.
Please keep posting -- and some more of your original stuff, it's great!
Thanks dino_tron! work ethic is actually what I consider my major downfall and put a lot of effort into it
today: anthro fox guy outdoors and stuff...
I haven't posted anything in a week! Shame and dishonor!
I have a lot of slacking to make up for this week

anatomy notes and a still life wip. Not even sure if the still life is readable
tried to do some smoothing on this. Productivity has hit a wall because of stress over college apps
I finally finished all my college application stuff so I should be back to regular updates shortly
I applied to FIT, SVA and Purchase, wish me luck!
Here's some super god damn classy comic action to satisfy your art viewing needs and desires
porn sketches, not something I've ever done before
doodles, sketches, studies
Great update, looking forward to seeing more.

okay, I wasn't actually rejected, I was waitlisted, which is arguably a worse feeling

I haven't been feeling so great, but I will find my groove again
Great life drawings at the start of the thread and they've surely paid off along with all the studies, you seem to be very good with the figure! You've nailed the quick Posemaniacs studies well and the PS ones look very solid to be so quick.
This one has some really nice edge treatment and I like the loose but defined style of this painting, though the edge highlights of the trousers look a bit odd. I like the accuracy of color you're achieving in digital with the latest studies but with the watercolors, I recommend never using black because it tends to kill the vibrant feel of watercolor sketches. For a more vivid black, try mixing two complementary colors.
I like the effortless looking lines of some of your quick sketches like the birds on the last page, also nice job suggesting feather detail. I especially like this sketch, the way you've simplified the curvatures into lines, suggested masses with the lighter lines and the use of line weight make it look really solid. Your hand sketches have a good sense of form too but sometimes the fingers look a bit distorted, it might help to think about them as groups of boxes more than cylinders.
I don't know what your career goal is but you're definitely on the right track for learning to paint solid figures. Maybe more finished work in proportion would be good, unless you're posting them somewhere else. I really like the treatment of the face on this one, shows you can get great depth with values when you invest enough time.
Keep them coming!
