    In need of serious help!

    I've had this idea in my head a few days, but this isn't turning out right. Some help, please?



    This is pretty horrible by this site's standards, but can you be as brutal as possible?

    Advice: even if your goal is to draw from your head, you need to spend a lot more time drawing from life and reference in order to put stuff into your head that you can draw from.

    Thanks C:

    I have, but I think I need to do it more, and probably for this particular pose, too.

    I don't think at this point of your skill you're able to improve significantly in just couple days and I have a feeling that any drawing you might post here now would just get the same critiques over and over because they all will be sharing the exact same fundamental flaws (form, proportion, anatomy, construction, perspective, etc etc etc) and you'd hear the same advice over and over again.
    Get those Loomis books I linked you (this would be a good one if you only buy one http://www.amazon.com/Figure-Drawing...l+it%27s+worth), read and study them well and spend like... a month for starters practicing by drawing from those books and simple objects from real life (and I mean REAL life, like your alarm clock, cardboard boxes, yourself from mirror, mugs, plates and so on) daily. Create a Sketchbook: http://conceptart.org/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=41 and post your studies there.
