I'm liking the construction of the human anatomy you are doing. Is that influenced from Loomis? Keep on going man, you got this. When you don't feel inspired, work anyways (most of the time you can become interested when you are working through something) . It's all about discipline. gogogogogo!

Thanks Jmob. I started doing Loomis this week, but I mostly used Hampton until now. Thanks a lot for the encouraging words!
And now for today's sketches (minus some figure drawing I did earlier today that I will post when I get the chance to take pictures.) A little disappointed with these, but I learned I really am terrible at women. Gonna work on it!

Hi there Mewball. Thanks for stopping by! By looking at you SB I'd feel inclined to suggest more anatomy studies. You could try Andrew Loomis' "Figure Drawing for all it's Worth". Also go check out ctrlpaint.com because it's full of usefull information. Things that go from basics in drawing with pencil to digital painting and more. I've been visiting that site lately and I recommend it. Keep up the good work!
BEHOLD. You're about to witness us...

I am currently using Loomis and I have looked around CTRLpaint. They're both pretty sweet! Thanks Dave!
Here's some stuff from today.

I got the chance to draw a figure model today, so I felt okay just doing random sketches for the rest of the day. I will post up my model drawings when I get the chance.

Thanks for commenting in my sketchbook.
There are some good drawings here, learning anatomy/ practicing from Loomis is a good idea. I think it would do you a lot of good to learn perspective and scaling techniques, some of the figures you've drawn aren't grounded and lack visual weight because of that. Keep doing life drawings, and maybe try some enviros too if that appeals to you. Think about what you want to achieve. You've made a good start anyhow
Some good books on perspective and drawing include,
Deborah Rockman's 'drawing essentials',
Perspective! For comic book artists (in comic form, really excellent) David Chelsea,
Harold Speeds 'The practice and science of drawing' (excellent for learning about life drawing and composition)
All the best

Yeah, I like cartoons! Hmm. I'm afraid I'm not really sure what you mean, though I agree they look off.

Here's some stuff. Not too much study which is bad, but I was quite tired and proportions are quite tedious...

Hi there! It's been a long time since I've updated this thread, but now I'm back and that's what matters!
Here's some stuff I did in the last 2 days. It's kind of a lot, sorry about that! I was practicing my perspective and portraits with some construction thrown in there. Crits are appreciated!!!
