    Again photo referenced drawings.

    Some quicker sketches of ufc fighters.
    And a couple of girls.
    Values and hatching is tough.

    So since hands are the most difficult things to draw for me I went on a quest of drawing one thousand hands
    Drawings of my hand and a bit of Bridgman studies.

    The reason I don't post stuff from imagination is that it's so bad it makes my eyes bleed

    Here's an example.

    Hello!

    Thanks for visiting my sketchbook. Looks like your eye for proportion and value is quite good. However, you seem to lack a proper understanding of what you're drawing. I suggest start studying anatomy. I recommend Riven Phoenix's "The Structure of Man" video course and Loomis' "Figure drawing for all it's worth." Bridgman is kind of hard for a beginner in my opinion, but it's a good resource if you know how to study from his stuff correctly. I wouldn't start from that though.

    Try to keep things conceptual, to get idea, rather than try to make things look super realistic at this stage. Focus on construction, it'll help when drawing from imagination.

    Great start!
    I'd look into reading some Loomis books, they're all free and loaded with information about everything related to drawing - drawing hands, drawing heads, drawing figures, etc:

    keep on postin'

    Thank you kitfox and lohes, I've already downloaded loomis and looked through his books. Seems like a good way to start so I'm going to be studying him soon :>

    For now some doodles and life drawings.

    ps. I have no idea how to put my comments in-between the attachments, they just load as a big continuous batch, would be great if anyone could help me with that :>

    Not bad for a start. Try to take into account the proportions in the sketch. Good Luck, I'll watch your sb

    Ametist thank you, I'm trying :>

    So, here are some posemaniacs, I'm pretty scared when drawing these fast sketches, but maybe drawing them is a good warm-up exercise. And a photo referenced portrait where I'm quite happy with the likeness, not so much with everything else ._.

    Hi there JulyZerg! Nice sb so far. Loomis is a great way to start figure studies. I recommend also doing many studies from life and if its possible go to some figure drawing classes. Good job, just keep pushing those studies!

    I enjoy your style very much. Your gestures are very nice. Don't worry too much about imagination pieces right now, that'll be revealed the more you study from life. The portraites are coming out great, I just wished you did more work on the rendering. Keep going!!!

    Satupeikko Thanks, I'm doing some life studies hoping to do more of them.

    Flanagan, wow, it's very flattering that you think I have a style! Thank you! And yea, rendering is my weakest point probably :> I'll work on it.

    A bit of posemaniacs.

    Quick ink pen portrait sketches, I tried to do them fast, kind of like posemaniacs. Pen turned out to be a nice tool.

    Thanks for your feedback on my sketchbook, it will really help me today when i do more studies - it was very thorough
    Glad to see you have started your own sketchbook too keep it up.
    I wish i could give you advice, hmm.. perhaps some colour (pencils maybe?) would brighten your day up a bit
