Hey there, I tried once a sketchbook topic but didn't go far.
This is my second try, I hope this one last forever.
Little intro: I'm a brazilian guy, 22 years old, graduated in advertising. I did work on graphic and web design area, but now my goal is drawing/painting. I hope is not too late for this career change.
C&C are welcomed!

Sorry about the quality, my camera and scanner sucks.
Hey guys, Ive started to use Loomis`s Successful Drawing to study some fundamentals. The books starts with perspective.
And I have a question: what you guys think, should I focus on get all I can from this book until I finish it or should I study Loomis`s Successful Drawning and some others authors at the same time, like Nicolaides, Vilppu, Bridgman, Hampton, Goldfinger, etc?
ps: sorry for any language mistake ^^"
The drawings (I`m in the beginning yet):
my first self portrait, i think i liked. just something in the eyes that bothers me, and maybe the flatness of the face, need some more 3d appearance because the rendering wasnt good.
Some Bridgmans studies...
a self potrait and a failed tentative to do some figure from imagination, my skill in anatomy sucks hard, so I must practice more.
E ae mermão! Valeu pelo comentário lá no meu sketchbook.
E sim, eu sou da Hangar também e eu lembro que tu fazia uns designs FODAS. Largou essa vida, cara?
Respondendo a sua pergunta: é melhor você alternar os estudos, um dia anatomia outro perspectiva e parara. Eu também tenho muito problema com poses realistas, dá uma olhada nesse site http://www.pixelovely.com/gesture/figuredrawing.php , programa pra uns 30 segundos por pose e faz desenhos rápidos, resumindo bem a pose (tipo isso: http://hippie.nu/~unicorn/tut/img/ba.../gestures.jpeg ).
Daí quando tu for fazer desenhos de cabeça começa simplificando bem a figura, com a linha geral da coluna e 2 cubos, um pra abstrair o tronco e o outro a bacia, aí conecta cilindros pros braços e a sua vida vai ficar mais fácil!
Grande abraço e continue com os desenhos!
