Hey thanks for the tips, I will do some more drawing script studies, Ive used that site before, but ill do some more studies from it.. its such a challenge to get my brain to think in 3 dimensions from thinking of everyting in contours and being flat, but i am determined to somewhat over come this hurdle!!!
here it is, i left some really really sketchy stuff out, this is yesterdays practice! spent 10hours practicing!

Hi again, I think you are making some progress.
For the basic shapes, I'd suggest picking up some geometric solids and doing some studies of them.
Here's an example of what I mean:
I have this same set and find it very useful. You can also buy wooden versions really cheap at a craft store or simply find shapes around your home. Probably something with a uniform matte finish is best. You don't want to deal with lots of shiny highlights at this stage.
Perspective drawing will help when it comes time to drawing these in different orientations. Having the shapes to hold and turn around will help you understand form and volume. It should also help you when it comes time to render and apply lighting.
gotta practice, found time to practice today, in between purchasing a moped and uni classes, must practice, practice, practice... set up a lame still life setup, need to get some apples and oranges... purchased a book, and studied some D'Amelio - Perspective Drawing Handbook... here is a little bit of loomis, perspective, gesture studies and poses from pixelovely.com.. havign trouble with line of gravity and showin weight with poses, I cant quite grasp the idea... any help from anyone would be great... thanks...
Like the studies and it is great you are doing stuff from imagination, I would say your recent posts face is wonky. I don't know how to explain it well lol, but for example, the right ear is smaller than the left and the left's perspective is quite different to the right one. Also the chin is quite slanted to the left and the eyes look to wide for the face and you can avoid things like this by getting the sketchbook or piece of paper you are working on and put it infront of a mirror to see what is off propotionally etc, I mean I don't mean to sound like a douche ( because I am still a beginner myself ). I would suggest you study faces more, especially from different angles, and you should try and get Andrew Loomis Heads and Hands, to get better a better knowledge of facial structure, I am studying it right now. So keep up the hard work man because you will end up being amazing at this rate. Sorry for the text wall XD
my arm is hurting badly, not sure why haha,.. but anyways, heres some practice from today, from loomis heads and hands.... im still trying to think in three dimensions , which is so much harder than it sounds, im sure everyone would know, but im determined to improvE!!!!
Well, I'm very disappointed as I missed a day of studies, as I was in hospital due to my dodgy heart, well I'm out now and will be uploading AsAP!
