    Think I need to look more at the inner workings of a person rather than just the outside.

    Studying faces. One of them is from my "Day of the Rikers" session, and is the best likeness I managed out of them all. I would love any suggestions on where I went the most wrong and what I should focus on in the future.

    Today's experiments involved organic armor. I'm not done with this idea just yet.

    I thought i'd try my hand at making a "portrait" with a character to it, or some kind of made up backstory.

    The second is at the recommendation that I not be such a prude on the horrific disfigurement

    Hello! Well it's been a while since I posted last. The new forums look and operate great! I've done a couple things, but have been pretty busy with school.

    Here's a sampler of my various studies and experiments

    Did some actual concept work today. Not extremely rendered but it feels good to get creative

    I did a speedpaint of this being made, feel free to watch if you'd like!

    You need to do some anatomy studies, I can see that you have almost no idea how the human body is constructed. Moar loomis n Bridgman!!!Remember memory studies!

    Thanks, Im currently doing a 50 torso study thing referencing George Bridgman/ Michael Hampton. I don't know if it's just a learning curve thing but I have a lot of trouble applying what I get from Loomis. Like it all makes sense when I see how he lays it all out but I don't retain much of it. I defiantly agree that it's a weak point of mine.

    Around 15 down. Feel a slight help but a long way from getting it down. I feel like a lot of times I'm making the abdomen too long? I think?

    I know what you mean, I think it's a problem area everyone has no matter what skill level. I think the best way to retain it would be to slow down really think about what he is doing, and the most important part, do it over, and over,and over. I know that sounds pointless but it really isn't as long as you are understanding what their were thinking and doing. While ago I REALLY REALLY sucked at legs, so I drew hundreds of them, and when I came out on the other side by legs looked some where normal, now I just REALLY suck at legs, see how that works? Now I have to learn how to combine the upper body and the lower body so that they look like they are a whole. Because at the moment my upper body is decent and my lower body so/so but combining them for me is a real challenge, and it's just something I gotta study and remember what stuff looks like.

    Just remember it's not about the amount you do, it's the quality that you do. If you do 50 fast torsos and learn NOTHING then it's a waste of time. On the other hand if you did 5 but really really got to understand what was happening and how the muscles looked and worked, then those 5 out weight anything those fast 50 could have done. Don't forget the do 1-3 memory studies of each torso. Each time redrawing that torso and coming back for another memory until you remember it! Remember Quality > Quantity.

    The sad thing is a lot of what seem like quick sketches or "studies" are actually quite slow methodical works of mine...doesn't bode well for my comprehension level. Here's a tizz, I can't learn it all from books. The place to go for real life study is photos or models. My question is this: When you're studying from a model or a photo, are you really learning anything about anatomy, or just improving your observation skills?

    That is a good question. I think both. When your are studying from a model or photo, it's really about what you are after, you can learn anatomy or observation skills, or both. The difference with books compared to life drawing or a photo is that a book tells you where stuff is, it's a foundation to where and what muscles look like. On the other hand studying from a model or photo gives you general anatomy, it can show you things that the book will not. For example, most of the characters in say loomis are pretty buff n skinny. In the real world not everyone is so, they are to give you a structure foundation, then you use that in say life drawing or with a photo to complete your knowledge. Loomis isn't going to show you how to draw a short person, a fat guy, or a slightly over weight guy that hold most of his weight in his legs, but it tells you the underlying forms that you can use to build off of. On another note, I think it's not about anatomy vs. observation. Anything you do drawing wise is also improving your observational skills, as long as you are thinking about why stuff is happening and what it looks like. Just remember to no mindlessly draw or you essentially wasting time. If you just fudging around then that is fine, but if your studying or doing a personal piece, think think think think think!

    It's been a while. Recently I've tried understanding construction of the face more. I've also just been doing random exercises.

    I've decided my understanding of the figure is seriously nill and needs work. I think the best place to start is to learn to do proper gestures. I tried making a few with no time limits, then I did a a rotation of a single pose using 1 minute gestures.
