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!
