    Math's sketchbook

    Hi my name is Mateusz and I am a newbie on this great forum. After many years of studying science and being drowned in the exciting world of chemistry, physics and biology I decided to do something elese and return to my old hobby from the very past - drawing and paining which I never explored as I really wished.
    Ok, I will try to post some of my drawings (including digital ones) every week to see how I progress in time.
    Because this is my first entry so far, then as a pivot point I post some selected drawings from my sketchbook.
    These are mainly anatomy excercises based on various books I have, so noting really creative at this point but well let's see how it goes in the future.

    Obviously, all constructive comments, hints and any critiques are very welcome. Thanks.

    This should be visible now, if anyone else could confirm that they can see the first post with the anatomy sketches?

    Thanks

    Today, I post some relatively quick figure drawings based on the models form Marcus J. Ranum stock (mjranum.deviantart.com or/and mjr@ranum.com).
    I did them as a hand-eye coordination excercise on my new Intuos 5...tablets are new to me .
    As always comments are welcome.

    Thanks, Math-x

    Some easy Saturday's figure drawings focused mainly on convex and concave lines and rough wrapping around to give some initial volume.

    These are nice studies, I like Hamptom's approach as well. What are some of your other sources?

    Thanks Brian...
    In terms of books for figure drawing and anatomy I use
    A. Szunyoghy/G. Feher's book for anatomy, Jeno Barcsay - also anatomy. I like Loomis (especially new printed version), Sheppard a little bit and Bridgman which is too chisely for me but ineteresting in some way. Recently, I read Hampton and Villpu which I really like. I have few more but these are what I use normally ...when I have time

    Great anatomical studies. Have you ever looked into doing the Vatruvian Man in perspective? Ive taken a class where that is the focus. Its an interesting option..

    Thanks Adam. No I have not try to draw Vatruvian man, yet. I was thinking about it at some point. It should be an interesting one.

    Good studies. You seem to have jumped right into some dynamic poses without any real troubles.

    Damn, those bones from first post looks nice. It feels so real. Nice quality of drawings and studies overall too.

    Really nice and clean studies, love them, bones especially. Also, that last skull study, which book is it from? I like that simplification, and I see you've been measuring some angles for brow ridge and mandible, so it could be useful to know.

    Thanks!

    The last skulls are based on G. Bammes drawings. Among all 'anatomy for artists'-like books I've seen his stuff is really good. I need to practice it more. The same with Hampton's approach.

    More to come

    Hi Mateusz, great studies!
    Keep working on hand studies, they are not in the right proportions. Cheers
