    David - Thanks a lot for stopping by and it's great to hear from you again, man.

    More studies over the past few days - figure constructions, perspective studies and form construction, free flowing gesture exercises, and silhouette exercises (I've been struggling with coming up with decent silhouettes that had good shape and rhythm to them) using harsh "angular" curves, flowing curves, and a mixture of the two together.

    As a general note and continuing on what David and several others have commented on, I know that I've put up nothing but studies over the past few months. Most of the reason for this is that I've had the luxury (thanks to my new job) to really buckle down and spend hours at a time studying a single topic until I feel like I've gotten very comfortable with it and then I move onto another. I don't know if this is the "right" or traditional way to study, but I've felt like getting into creative/finished work without at least somewhat a solid foundation is not only wasting my time that I could be studying and improving these foundational skills but also very discouraging when I've spent a lot of time on a piece only to have it not come out anywhere near what I'd like it to be. Just look at any of my first posts on here to get evidence of that. I haven't had the financial ability to go to school for art or design, which sometimes catches me at a weak moment and bothers me, making me feel like I'm at a disadvantage, but over the years I've found that if there's one thing I'm good at it is teaching myself something when I'm determined to learn it (just go ahead and ask me anything about music theory, talk to me in Spanish, a little French, or ask how to code something very simple in C++ for example ). Okay, the programming isn't a great example, but that shit's hard and you know it. During my very brief time on ConceptArt, I've seen many other sketchbooks and am continually FLOORED with the amount of creativity, technical ability, and just overall inspiring works that get put up on here and it pushes me to work harder and smarter each time my pen touches a piece of paper. I aspire to be among the ranks of all the greats on here and so anytime I do a study, I feel like I'm never just "doing a study", but advancing myself to eventually becoming on of these guys. Don't take any of this as an excuse to not be creative. I do agree that my work needs to start becoming more and more focused on finishing pieces as I progress and this will happen. I just wanted to give a reason for my lack of doing so lately and hope that my studying has shown that I've gotten better and more confident in my foundation over the past few months. Thanks for letting me rant. *Off soap box*.

    While I was too late to apply for the CHOW this week, I did spend some time last night and came up with a sketch and inked it. I liked it as I was drawing, but now looking at it, I think it's shit. Funny how that always happens. Oh well, pushes me to be better. Onward!

    Also I'm going to hit drapery like a step child this week. That and feet. Fucking feet.

    This is awesome for me to come back so much later and see all of the stuff you've done. I agree with what you said at the top of the page about doing more studies and then applying them in imagination drawing every so often. This is inspiring and it also makes me happy to see that you are taking on more perspective and form building stuff!

    Nice work MrFrenik! Really digging on your expertise in perspective and draftsmanship! Like others were saying, consider tapping your adventurous side and devise some really original stuff using those well-honed skills, when you have the time of course!

    I don't have any suggestions other than you are on the right track,
    the magic boxes and form studies are great, I also like your nudes
    how you put the box in between.

    Oh one thing, the gestures, feel the waight and tension. Think about
    it when you draw.

    Hey man, thanks for checking out my sb. Loving the studies here, i've ordered dynamic wrinkles and drapery; so i'll be in on that action soon. I've looked at Perspective made easy and basic perspective drawing: a visual guide, also checked out anything with Scott Robertson on it, and the Gary Meyer videos on Gnomon, and the Carl Dobsky videos on TAD. Keep at it buddy!

    hey man thanks for passing by. I am going to focus more on construction and perspective - you are very right. I will take a step back and practise the fundamentals. And it is inspiring to see your improvement.
    Btw have you seen this page yet? http://www.idsketching.com/ keep it up!

    I haven't been productive for the past few days, so upon trying to study last night, discouragement took hold and this is what came out. Yay for shit!

    After seeing Joe's SB I feel rejuvenated and inspired. Funny how that works. Anyway, I wanted to figure out to create reliable square grids for quick but precise measurement in 2pt perspective, so I combined some techniques and came up with something that I think works pretty well. Will do more with this when I wake up later today and study. Sleep time for now.

    Wow, I love the perspective studies. Last night you stopped by my SB and suggested I work on perspective. Do you have any exercises you have maybe done yourself that has improved you sense of perspective??

    Dividing cubes into more subsections and using orthographic views to construct in perspective. More advanced things to come once I get more comfortable with these constructs.
