I'm a hungry shark that feeds on your C&C !
Hi! I'm 18 and I've been a long time lurker here at CA.org and always found it inspiring to see people starting from scratch, honing their skills and then after years of practice making their living as an artist. Seeing the progress of people like Algenpfleger, Sam Carr and Miles really hit me and was sort of a wake up call for me. They've proven to me that anything is possible if I put my mind into it and stay dedicated. So I've finally decided to start my own sketchbook since I now have a scanner and possess mediocre painting skills. I'm also going to start attending a life drawing class in the fall. My current weaknesses are color and doing stuff from imagination. This thread will be updated regularly and showcase my journey towards awesomeness. As a heads up I will be uploading tons of stuff I've done for the past four months so don't be alarmed if you think I'm practicing like a madman. Stay tuned!

Nice start but I think your studies are looking very clean and tight and I think you could do more studies if you would draw a bit looser and faster without so much preasure. keep it up! greetings
Maybe try some gesture studies to loosen up.
agree with the both of them above,
and i'm curious why chinese for labeling your works
Bear with me, loose stuff is coming up. The chinese numbers just indicate which Structure of Man lesson I'm on. I know that people hate Riven Phoenix's videos over here and I can see why. They were super boring and repetitive. The reason why I did all of them was because I had bought those videos ages ago and felt like I had to go through them. Plus at that time I needed a solid foundation in anatomy. Anyway, here's more boring anatomy stuff:

i recognized riven phoenix's teachings in here. they look good! and based from my experience, his teaching is an excellent way to start mastering anatomy
Let's spice things up with some Michael Hampton studies:

Anybody got suggestions for a good image hosting site ? I'm using photobucket but I'm afraid that the pictures might get deleted in the future.

I just post my stuff on DeviantArt and use that as host.

rinnikirun Can't say I've heard of him but after checking out his stuff I feel pretty dumb for not knowing him beforehand.
