    Drawings from life and photos

    Soooooo this is my first sketchbook...cool
    Most of the stuff I've been doing are first attempts at it mainly drawing from life.
    Most of the stuff here is from life and some are from photos.
    Almost all of the stuff right now are drawings i've spent around 30 seconds to maybe 5 minutes on, I haven't done many drawing that i work for for several hours.
    I'll post those ones later!
    So far I've still got a lot to learn so i'm going to be drawing from life almost everyday and occasionally draw some from photos and online.
    I've recently bought 2 books, one is "Drawn to Life: 20 Golden Years of Disney Master Classes Volume 1" and "Force: Dynamic Life Drawing for Animators"
    Haven't gone through the Force one yet but I will later
    Anyways heres the drawings, critique would be nice! Be as hard as you can, I really want to improve!

    Think you are off to a good start with your figure work and taking a good approach thinking structurally about the body so def keep at that. Maybe add in some non figurative life studies to help learn the fundamentals to. Most of all just keep going, reading, drawing and learning.

    Good start! I'd suggest that you get familiar with bone structure and muscles next. It's always good to back up practice with theory -and it will help you ALOT when you try to draw animals.

    Please take a look at my Sketchbook! <- Comments are highly appreciated and returned C:

    Haha, cool , since i really don't have anyone to guide me i've been wondering if i've been doing it right. I take art classes in college so once i find my drawings i'll post those up too!

    Well I've drawn muscles before, i just hasn't become "second nature" to me yet....I'll try to get to them again soon
