    Hello everyone!
    More shape and value studies with dead nature. One of them was made previously, though I corrected now!
    It´s time to catch up all I´ve missed....
    I hope you enjoy and please, leave your comments. Feedaback is always important!

    Some anatomy studies!
    I had problems doing this...I got issues with anatomy, though I did my best!

    Hello everyone,
    I have some problems with anatomy and a friend of mine told that I´m still have some issues with fundamentals. So here we go again, starting with basics!
    More heads studies, based on Loomis´book.

    When drawing faces, keep in mind that they are very full most of the time. You've got some really sharp angles going on with the cheek bones generally, and though it's fine to draw prominent cheekbones, the cheek underneath it usually isn't as hollow as your drawing it. That vertical line under the cheek bone you've been drawing doesn't quite happen like that. Think about the planes of the face when drawing those sorts of landmark lines. When they seem to 'dig too deep' into the face it looks really hollow and makes the face look extremely old.

    It might be helpful for you to 'reference' the face of a real person, like and actress or actor, when doing the Loomis heads. It's something I did in class and was pretty helpful. You just get one photo of the person, and draw their face from different angles based on the photo. It's pretty challenging and can teach you a lot.

    As far as the basics go, I agree that you're still having trouble with relationships between shapes. In the faces you've been doing, sometimes you hit the mark pretty dead on, and others you falter. It looks like you have more trouble with the up and down shots, which are hardest to learn after all. It might help if you think of the head as 3D. You're forgetting to draw the space under the chin, which flattens out your heads, and your necks don't flow into the right direction. Really keep an eye out for those things.

    To help understand relationships between objects and planar forms better, I'd suggest setting up some still lives where you have many objects overlapping. In the still life, approach it like drawing a planar face cast, where there are definitive plane changes. To really get proportion down, you've got to understand how shapes relate. Though it seems like a tedious and boring exercise, if you really sit down and take it seriously you could really improve your 'eye' for proportions between objects. It's best to do the still lives from life since it's more of a challenge and you learn more.

    But you've really improved a lot. c: I enjoy visiting your sketchbook since I can see the improvement in your work. You're coming along great! Keep it up!

    DKHutcheson: Hello mate! Thanks for the tips and corrections you´ve made from my work!! I´m glad that you saw my improvement, I know is not much, but sometimes it´s helpful some encouragement! I´ve been studying Loomis since last week and I´m following the book! My next step are the planes, then I hope to put in practice the tips you gave me!
    Thanks for dropping by!

    Hello everyone!
    I´ve been studying a lot, although I chose only the best stuff I´ve done to show you.
    Now my focus is strictly anatomy, however sometimes I study shapes and value. I´ll work hard to master human anatomy, since this is my biggest difficult to learn!
    Please, leave your comments!

    Hello everyone!
    I´ve been studying a lot, so I made more anatomy and some different sketches to keep my studies more dynamics. I think this is good to practice different drawings and dom´t loose previously knowledge.
    For anatomy I´m studying Loomis and Bridgman´s book, following Marshall Vandruff´s class and tips.
    I hope you like it!

    Good work so far!

    I hope you dont mind me linking this, a really good and easy to understand video series on constructing the head that works quite well with your loomis methods:
    http://www.youtube.com/user/ProkoTV/videos?view=0 I can't recommend these enough.

    Hey guys!
    More sketches and a little bit of color now!
    I´m trying to improve my anatomy, showing one of my progress to compare! It´s really funny!
    I did something for fun with photoshop, although I like traditional media.
    I hope you enjoy!

    Hello everyone!
    I´m kind of busy these months, so I´ve spent a few hours with my art.
    Here two enviros (one of them I fixed the perspective problem) and later on I´ll post more human anatomy.
    I hope you like it and thank you for all support!
    My best for all!

    Hello, I noticed that you study from Loomis' book and I have an advice for you that many ppl that start to draw have problems with.

    So, when redrawing from a book or photo, try to focus on what you see and draw it as you see it, don't draw what you think you see, don't use your brain/imagination to help you because they won't, don't draw a face, don't draw a nose, draw exactly the lines you see on the photo/drawing. To help with this you can try drawing things upside down, or negatives - you only draw the space that isn't filled by the object you're drawing, nothing inside it.

    Hope it help, good luck!

    Thanks for the tip ANty93. You're not the first person who tell me that. I got a big problem to learn anatomy.
    First I tried learn from Bridgman's book and I realized that I couldn't put together shapes and muscles.
    Now I'm trying Loomis' book and see what happens.
    Another thing: before I was trying to draw shapes, then join the muscles without understand the shapes. I was trying to draw human body on my own without reference. Now I'm copying everything, so maybe I'm still have the problem of "drawing what I think to see".
    I'll work on it!

    Nice pencil work. You've got a good eye, and you've made an excellent start. I don't have anything to add that hasn't already been said. Just keep studying the craft, doing studies of real life stuff, and pushing work out. And don't lose hope because you aren't where you would like to be or because someone is overly critical, because everyone starts from the exact same point. Getting better is all about dedication and hard work, and with both of those, you will definitely improve. I can already see that you have a good eye for form and value, and I think you will make significant progress in the next few months if you keep it up. Keep posting mate, and the best of luck!

And don't lose hope because you aren't where you would like to be or because someone is overly critical, because everyone starts from the exact same point. Getting better is all about dedication and hard work, and with both of those, you will definitely improve. I can already see that you have a good eye for form and value, and I think you will make significant progress in the next few months if you keep it up. Keep posting mate, and the best of luck!
    Thank you so much chevy28360 for your kind words!
    It's good to hear that, because sometime many criticisms could have a negative influence on you. And I'm really glad of my improvement, especially I've been drawing for 1 year and 8 months!

    Great sketch book here man, love your dedication. you are improving a lot even if you don't see it.
    With anatomy studies I would try and paint with a light hand. If you don't know what that is, it pretty much means you paint with confidence making sure every individual line represents something but you draw softer. Try and find the balance between line position and line weight. I'm working on this myself and even with a week of telling my brain to press lighter and feel more confident I'm improving. hopeful that made sense. good luck with your studies.
