my sketchbook journey // daily updated
I started drawing about three years ago (from scratch) and this community was a great motivation since then. Today I finally found the courage to create my own sketchbook. I love conceptart & illustration and hope to improve my skills by updating this sketchbook everyday. My dream is to draw and piant everything that I can imagine.
In the next few posts I will show some of the stuff I did during the last 6 months. After that I will only show current work that isn't older than one day. I'm always grateful for comments and criticism, so don't hesitate to give me some feedback
btw. if you want to see more of my works or some of my really old stuff, please visit my blog: http://my-journey-into-art.blogspot.com/
Here are some of my digital sketches and paintings:

Thank you forestdino!
Here are some gesture studies and figure sketches. I use Gottfried Bammes' book for understanding bone structure, Michael Hampton's book for gesture and muscles and Vanderpoels book simply because I love every single drawing in it. Like you can see I only have learned the muscles of the torso yet... so there is much work to do

I am surprised you are inspired by my studies... your figure sketches are amazing !! I love the line quality and the style !!! Nice works, seriously !!
I use Micheal Hampton as well, But only as a guide for an approach on simplifying. Otherwise, I usually use Google Body, and Human Anatomy for Artist to study muscle placement, insertion and origin.
And thanks for dropping by my SB Looking forward to more updates !!

carakhan: Thanks so much! It took me a while to get into watercolor. It's a tricky medium in my opinion, but its fun!
MBardi: Hey, thanks I didn't thought I would get so much response to the watercolor gestures. I'm glad you like it!
fenixx: Oh, your sketchbook is great! I avoided more detailed anatomical studies because I'm more into constructive anatomy. But I know I should do some of them. I didn't know about "Human Anatomy for Artist" and google body btw... thanks for the tipps!
And here is some more stuff... studies from life drawing course. The models are changing position very quick (5-10 min), so I mostly just sketch them.

Wow, you have reached an amazing level with those three years!!
Your sketches show a lot of work and attention, and that is so great. I like your colouring style and the different body types you work with.
Keep the great work, please!

Dareedse: wow, thanks so much The good thing about the life drawing course is that they always have 3-4 models of several age, bodytype and gender.
WaSsiM: thanks man! Bridgman is awesome... I got a few of his books in my shelf. I will show some of my anatomy studies in my next posts.
Some drawings and studies... enjoy

Sweet updates !!
In fact I am more interested in constructional anatomy as well. Its just that I don't seem get my head around the simplicity of the forms and my strokes really suck. Any tips regarding the approach ?
Don't know if there was confusion but this is the book "Human Anatomy for Artists" i was referring to.
Anyway. Keep drawing
