Man, your gestures are so pretty, and the scribbly technique you used in post #36 is really cool, it made me stop and stare for a bit I love the variations in your faces but it looks like you could use a bit of studying on proportion (I'm learning too, it's a challenge). Good luck!

Very nice amount of work you are doing, i like the balance between design and studies! Some advice i could give is try to think about your lines some more. Like try and make more long and confident strokes. Some excerises i heard of for better line quality on man made objects is to fill up pages of just drawing straight lines. For organic, try drawing things with one constant flowing line and never lift you pencil off the page. Most of the time i like to scribble my way into a desgn then ink it with confident lines or erase slightly then draw over the faded pencil with new confident strokes. Creating line weight where necessary. Keep up the great work!

Joe777k7 I actually do a lot of practice at doing hatching just to fill boxes and things - its usually on the paperwork I have at work but I try to evenly fill the boxes with straight lines. I am working on improving my lines constantly. Either way your advice is appreciated. Come back later to see how I'm doing!
LukeStarkiller - First of all, killer name. Second - Thanks for the comments. I know I've got some work to do on proportions, particularly on the proportions of legs to the rest of the bod and on heads. But that is what I'm working toward so.. yea lol. Thanks for stopping by
NickeyBeats - Oh yea, the Bridgeman studies are helping tons. I'm probly going to go through that book again... though I'm think of going through my Reubens book first. not sure. Thanks for stopping by!
I havent done my life drawing for a couple of days, I've been doing more in my sketchbook - I should be able to get some scans in tomorrow to share

Been holding out on you guys for a few days. heres an update. I'm working on controlling how much I zoom in and out when doing these studies. Its an annoying habit I've got and I'm trying to break myself of it so I can get more accurate proportions. I think its working... What do you think?
