    I love the dude with a cigarette up his nose. And you already know that the anatomy with the girl running is out, it seems that either her torso is too long or her arms are too short. And her head is a funny shape, her face seems too large for the size of her head, and her forehead tapers off a lot more than it probably should. But it is fun to draw from imagination isn't it? I just did it for the first time in forever last night - it felt good

    Alizak Yeah, so far all my practice has given me the ability to know the anatomy is out, but still not to get it 100% when i first lay out the pic, but I will get there!
    Lagarto Thankyou! :3 Hopefully it will show soon enough

    Ok so down to the sketches.. Just my lil a5 sketchbook again.. I think my next one I will stick with an a4 one.. or maybe slightly bigger shouldn't get to far ahead of myself now..
    First I did some bammes, then random gesture, trying foreshortening without ever reading anything or practising foreshortening.. it didnt turn out well.. needs a peg leg.
    Then I tried some gestures and focused on nothing but form in the shading, these I liked, might try some more of these in the future, very helpful.
    Shading, perspective, different style of gestures, portrait from ref which is..
    Here: http://500px.com/photo/4813091
    She is absolutely stunning, my drawing of her.. not so much..
    Ouu Ouu and then theres an original character.. my very first, not heaps original but not to bad.. he has a beard, not dodgy shading.
    Then loomis.

    I quite like the sketch of that girl - I think if her left eye was a bit lower down and her jaw was a little larger it would look a lot better. Overall though you are going well - I hope I can keep up with your motivation level!

    alizak Thank you for the kind words! You are right about the girl, I couldnt work out what was off myself, but it is the jaw and the eye. Thanks!

    Ok so not a heap today, trying to stay with the quality over quantity motif. So I really thought about gestures and how to make them more fluid and dynamic because my gestures are still very stoic in my opinion. I think they are a bit more lively now, but they have alot less detail in them, finding the balance will be key.
    I did a few bammes studies then a diagram from a medical anatomy book of the facial muscles. The line work in the book is amazing and I learnt a lot just by copying it in regards to linework and cross hatching and how to convey the form. Who would of thought I would have found such a good artistic teacher in a gray's anatomy book.
    Then some loomis, and then random doodles late at night.

    Your gestures are looking a lot more fluid - nice line quality and they don't seem stiff or rigid at all. Keep it up!

    WRappii Thanks for visiting my sketchbook! Yeah understanding the skull really helps with doing a face.
    alizak You think so? Awesome! Thanks

    Okay so today I went to the city, mostly to sit with my friend for his first tattoo (5 and a half hour sitting on his chest, took it like a trooper) but I visited the Uni while I was there. Felt like such a bumpkin. I dont go into the city often lol.

    Did some drawing down on the train, screwed up perspective after about 20min so started again and spent probably about 1hr 10min on it. Not perfect by any means, I still struggle finding where the horizon line and vanishing point is in real life..
    On the way back I did some monster from imagination and some of the people in the carriage around me.

    PS. Since when are train tracks bumpy! There were a lot of them.

    Perspective is something I have to work on too - I think I will be darned proud of myself when I conquer it

    alizak Yeah definitely, perspective seems like a very vast subject. Except as I look into any aspect of drawing properly, every part seems to grow bigger. There is a vast amount of information to learn..

    Not much today, wish I did more but I just couldnt concentrate. Kinda bummed and had no motivation, but least I got something, I guess.

    good start!

    One thing I would say is to practice more from life, and by that I don't mean photographs. Do some self portraits, drawings of friends, family, drawings of strangers etc. and apply what you learn from anatomy books to improve the way you see and the way you think.

    As for gesture drawings, look for the line of action of the figure, the movement of the entire body, this might help explain it better,

    overall, I like what you're doing here, keep studying, keep drawing from the imagination too

    Hunin Thanks, that image is great, trying to find as much information as possible on gestures and that helps explain it a little better. As for life drawing, I have been toying with the idea of drawing family, so I may just start that sometime soon. Thanks for the encouragement!

    Ok not much to show today sadly, was in a slump motivation-wise, I know, I hate to say it. But I focused on some eyes/mouths from Loomis, couple of faces, really trying to get the eyes looking in the same direction and focused. Instead of the staring/zoned out look I normally get when I draw eyes.

    Ok, not alot, very little actually. Worked on gestures and keeping them fluid, trying different things.. then did a life drawing of my dad.. ITS SO HORRIBLE! D: so bad its laugh worthy, but I'll practice a week, and do another and see if it improves... I did say I'de upload the bad with the good I guess...

    It's great that you're doing studies. Although personally I would like to see more personal stuff since it's easier to critique, studies are invaluable to progressing as an artist.

    Quick tip, if I may, about your perspective stuff. Namely, the tank a couple of posts ago. Don't be afraid to detail it! Right now it kinda looks like a stack of cardboard boxes. Also, contour lines are a great way to quickly give mass and form to an object. Especially mechanical, ID-stuff like the tank.

    See how lines run up and down along the razors? That's what I mean. Try it out.
