I've been having a hard time understanding the curves and angles of the face, So i figured it would be wise to learn the bone structure of the face in order to understand the exterior ! some basic loomis skull studies !

i took a step back again to learn angles and structure a little better ! Im having an issue with determining the size of the cut of circle on the side of the head. as well as drawing the head from harsh angles !

hmm, first impression looking at last head
where the f... is perspective?? i know you want to learn as quickly as possible but if you don't learn the basics you will run into bad habits that will be hard to get rid off
don't draw sth from 'harsh angle' when you have problems to set good proportions in front view and so on
i'm also not a big fan of Loomis
i'd rather recommend you Hampton
you can also try Bringdam or Hoghart they represent different way of drawing
this thread can help you

i can only say that building anatomic forms is grounded by understanding of perspective and usage of simple forms
i can;t really say what's better for you, look through other threads and decide

I tend to think i should start to learn perspective better! thank you for the advice though ! i'm trying to teach myself all of this in my spare time outside of uni so anything is helpful !

actually picked up quite a bit with all these simple perspective studies ! its interesting the idea of creating everything in an artificial space and this giving you a realistic image, versus drawing what you think it would look like.

I think these are some great studies, and i can already see improvement
I only started drawing about half a year ago, and something that i thought helped me alot, was to do quick gesture drawings.
Doing these gesture drawings helped me get much more confident with my strokes and also made me able to "see" better, so that i made less and less flaws.
And now i find it's easier to do my anatomy studies, because i don't have to erase all the time
I usually use 30-90 secs for each drawing.
I dont know if you want to try it out, but here i have a link to a good website:http://www.lovecastle.org/draw/
