Yeah, of course I want crits, I´m craving for feedback, I want to get better!!Do you want a crit? Because this site is about that mainly... if you want to improve you have to accept such feedbacks!
Do more studies from references in order to improve because your bodies and their poses look weird... It seems to me that you pay attention to detail which is good... but sometimes this prevails... which is bad! I had the same prob... so work on it!
Also... I see a lack of knowledge when drawing muscles...
All in all... keep up u will get better and better I bet on that!
I´m not really used to it yet because I never had anyone telling me what I do wrong but I´m really working on that and try my best, that´s why I started this sketchbook !
So thank you very much, I´ll work on all the points you mentioned, I really appreciate your advices and feedback
Old habits die hard but I try to act on all your advices. Really! I promise, it´s just that I´m slow and yeah...old habits die hard
Anyway worked through a couple of pages from one of Bridgman´s books. Next is Michael Hampton´s Figure Drawing one more time, my memory is a bitch so I´ll repeat this stuff till I memorize everything....
Watch me defeat my scumbag brain!!!
Hope I can post more anatomy studies in the following hours/tonight, till then the lineart for some cyberpunk/scifi influenced wanted poster thing, wanted to do something like that since I first saw Dan LuVisi´s awesome LMS Wanted posters ♥ Let´s see how it turns out
But I need to fix the arms somehow before I start coloring (or I hide them under dozens of tattoos which I planned to do anyway xD)
Welp damn, made all the practice I did the last days on paper so I can´t upload them :/ But I finished a new piece yesterday so I upload that
I think I messed up the arms and hands a bit and yeah too many details (I really try to work on that but I freaking love details and it´s hard to work on that!)

The girl in #38 has a proportinally small head and her neck isn't centered, so it's a bit odd to look at, except these I find it to be one of the better ones, your figures always have too much softness/blurryness going on.
Keep doing those nice studies (Bridgman, Hampton, I like your choices ) and using what you learned. Well you know this well enough...
@shiNIN: Hey man, thank you for the feedback!
Had to take a little break from anatomy studies to free my mind but I´ll do as many as possible this weekend
But to not leave this post without drawings: some quick animal sketches, quick shoulders/backs repetition and a wip of a painting I´m working on atm to practice composition, cities and such thing
(Btw does anybody have any tips how to practice composition? Guess I need to re-read that chapter in Loomi´s book)

oh, nice studies, keep working on your anatomy.
You have some cool textures in your portraits
@Matija Vuk: Thanks man! And I´ll do
Or actually I do, re-started Loomi´s Figure Drawing book. A bit sloppy because I tried to look less at the book while drawing instead of taking a look every 5 or 6 secs to challenge my brain a bit more xD
Your faces are very good! But I am not a fan of the "smiley face" thing you do when you don't complete a face... it can be quite distracting from the overall image. If you don't finish a face - just leave it! It's all progress in the grand scheme. Looking good so far - subscribed!
@AllyAlbon: Thanks man. And I´ll stop with those smileys from now on
Working trough Hogarth´s dynamic figure drawing book these days. It´s a lof fun most of the time but some of those hands! Hands are difficult anyway but some hand poses in this book O_o I´m a bit scared of Dynamic Hand drawing
@Justyna: Gonna do that, thanks for the tip! And thanks for dropping by
Woah, almost forgot this little sketchbook here.....or it was the shyness taking over
A couple of updates;not that many, was busy with my first commission (yeah!!) and just doodled them in between but better than nothing I guess!
