    Good advice; thank you. I'll seriously consider this, as I do very little from imagination. BTW, your sketchbook certainly demonstrates the value of hard work and focused study! Awesome stuff!

    Your sketches are a lot tighter and the forms much clear than your first attempts, keep it up!

    More stuff: gestures, fabric study in crayon (incomplete, because the cat sat on it), the dreaded newbie celebrity portrait, example of my attempts to apply Hampton-style construction to head photographs, and a page from a sketchbook.

    Been super busy since July, but I'm still getting some drawing done, if not much posting. Hopefully things will calm down in a month or two.

    Sorry about the quality; I don't have access to a scanner right now (pretty ironic, considering my day job). I finally fell off the Nicolaides wagon. I'm not giving up, but I mainly do what I want now, and sprinkle in Nicolaides exercises when I'm in the mood.

    I'm trying to do more sketching from life this year, mostly quick impressions and gestures. Samples below. (The scanner and I are in a trial separation period; please excuse the lame photographs.)

    I got Stanchfield's Drawn to Life for Christmas, and enjoyed it a bunch. I may not be able to capture a gesture, but I feel like I understand the point a little better now . Also got Loomis' Creative Illustration and some Bridgman titles, but I haven't started them yet.

    Lots of messy drawings lately; not sure what my problem is. Trying to draw cats and dogs that can't sit still for ten seconds doesn't help any.

    Been reading Loomis' Creative Illustration and enjoying it. Most of the topics are out of my league, but it's still a good read. I can't find any figure drawing around here, but I ordered Figure Drawing for all it's Worth anyways.

    Wow, you've made some substantial progress! Your line work and understanding of values is great. I've always been more of a fan of traditional work, and I was definitely not disappointed when I ventured into your thread.
    The only thing that I can suggest is to try some imagination work instead of completely focusing on real life studies. Real life studies are great, don't get me wrong, but drawing from your imagination can be just as helpful when it comes to viewing objects and light in a new perspective.

    Keep up the great work man!

    Thank you for your comment in my sketchbook. Many pieces in your thread show me: it's good to invest time in longer studies. Your work motivates me.

    @Wincher: Thanks, your stuff motivates me
    @jamsession: Thank you!

    @smsniper: Thanks for the feedback. I'm afraid I don't have any original book ideas--I just pick up whatever books I see recommended elsewhere on this site (e.g. Loomis, Bridgman, Nicolaides, Hampton, Stanchfield, etc.). In many cases the material is over my head, but I just do my best and revisit them as I learn more.

    I struggle with understanding form, but what I've found helpful is to consider everything as a volume with a top, sides, and bottom. Sometimes I map out plane changes starting with the largest ones first and then breaking them down to smaller pieces. Squaring things off helps me with this process. Crude, but that's where I'm at right now .
