    Glad to see you are so dedicated. There are many who would of gave up already -- which is why I encourage you to keep going. Especially because you have a great start.

    More good studies I can see you take time to get these right and really try to nail them. How long does it usually take for you to do these? The leg studies...Keep going man, you're doing really well!!!

    nice work, i dont think its ever 2 late to live your dream.. i get the same feeling and im almost 21..
    of course, everyone has their own personal side to it. its not just "im 27, and im not a great artist"- What i mean is, if you have your reasons to draw...hell. do it.

    @KONM ...thanks ! although work keeps me away from drawing sometimes for many days but if people like you are here for support it gives encouragement to keep going
    @Damien Levvis...thanks! well! i am not exactly sure how much time i took but it would be around 4 hours , but i guess most of time went on just understanding these muscles than drawing, they were very confusing , i am still confused
    @Sushy ...thanks!
    @n1frit ...thanks!
    @A Faux... thanks !


    ok its been two weeks since i updated my sb even then i have a little update to share ... work keeping me away from drawing, its gonna be like that for sometime , i hope i'll get time to draw more soon ,,,

    a still life it's not from life it's from a drawing book . trying to improve pencil shading ..

    Awesome updates man! The leg studies from loomis are looking great. I hope you'll find time to update your sb soon. It always sucks if work is keeping you away from drawing.

    I totally get what you mean about not having time for drawing.. I keep postponing it, saying I'll draw so much but next week when I have less things to do (and I keep passing it and nothing ever gets done).. It sucks. I'd say to just buy yourself a small sketchbook that you can easily carry around or in your suitcase (so you can take it to work), and maybe during your lunch break or something you could try to draw the people you see and stuff. It has definitely helped me, I've started drawing more often now

    Also, your works are great! I can already see some improvements. Keep it up and you'll be great in no time!

    Hey, Vin, I just found you SB and am really excited to find someone else in his later 20's as well (I'm 25) that's trying to do art professionally without going back to school. I agree with most people that say that this site and any other resource that you can gather in books or the TONS of freebies online paired with a burning desire to learn as much as you can will be enough to get you to a level on par and possibly better than someone who was "traditionally" trained. That's my opinion, of course, and I'm sure there are 100's of people who would comment just to disagree with me, ha. But I'd say that what's most important is to be able to soak in as much as you can, build a great portfolio, and decide where to go from there, either working freelance, get on with a studio, or create your own business. It's almost exciting to think about all the avenues that could be available. And what's great is that you have a job where you can maintain your finances and stability and continue to learn in all the free time you have. This was a long post, sorry, but all in all your studies are great (I'm currently doing Loomis' books as well) and I'm glad you've chosen to pick art back up after a while. Keep it up, sir!

    PS - stop by and say hi on my SB. would love some comments/crits!

    Hi , thanks for commenting on my sketchbook , you have a lovely stuff here , i espacilly like the leg studies , they look awesome , try to study them from bridgman for more knowledge , and also one important thing that you should do , you must apply those anatomy studies to a life model or a photograph , example : get a nude (male , female ) photograph , draw his or her legs then try to put the muscles or the bone on the legs ( from memory or from art books ) and accualty you're doing great with your art , and i suggest you to make a challenge of a one or two hundreds gesture drawings

    Your drawings are really precise and careful. I find the cleanliness very impressive and I think you're well on your way to improving!

    @MrFrenik.. hey there! thanks for coming by my sb ...and y sorry for the long post? in fact i appreciate your valuable suggestions

    @Wassim ...thanks Wassim , i did pick up bridgeman book first but honestly i found it little confusing for a beginner like me that's y i decided to go for loomis
    first , once i am done with it i am gonna start with either hampton's book or bridgeman's

    @Danitiwa ...thanks for visiting i am happy that u liked my sb

    Yeah, they look too wide for me too. I think that I read in Bridgman's book that the torso and arms are 2,5 heads wide.
    I'd advice to observe the world, people around you and learn from it, you'll save some time that you'd have to draw studies. It's really helpful (on my example, I don't do any studies and still am progressing )

    I wish you a (very) belated happy new year!

    Those muscle studies are awesome, I still admire your pencil-control (if that makes sense).

    Take care and keep drawing

    so drawing after two and a half months.. holding pencil felt really weird for s a while.. anyways!

    tried to do a portrait of Major Dhyan chand , he was a famous indian hocky player, After seeing his prolific play at the 1936 Berlin Olympics, Adolf Hitler offered Dhyan Chand, a Major in the British Indian Army, German citizenship and an offer to promote him to the rank of a Colonel , which he refused..

    well! m not very happy with the likeness as i can see a lot of distortion and proportion mistake plus i guess i really need to improve my observational skill ,

    posting the reference image too, i would really appreciate comments and critiques

    I really like your portraits/life drawing, very well done. YES this is a good place
    for people to learn but only if you keep the hard work up, It took me a while
    to gather people around my SB.

    I have the problem that I am very lose, sometimes my work looks unclean to manny
    lines, but try some gestures it will make you lose up a bit, good stuff here so far.
