    Nate Learns to Draw (NSFW)

    Hey everyone,

    I began drawing two months ago. I started by copying from "how to draw comics" books and then got serious about wanting to draw figures. I stumbled upon Loomis and Hampton, but really struggled until I found Vilppu. Now that I have a bookshelf full of help and a pencil, my goal is to be proficient with drawing figures from imagination.

    Critiques will always be welcome!!

    I'm going to dump some images here to start off...

    Here's the figure work in pencil...

    The last one shows the power of Vilppu given 1 1/2 weeks of serious study. Then again, it could be a fluke as I surprised myself (not perfect by far, but a big jump!) :-)

    2 hours, pencil... looks harsher in the picture than on paper, but botched the eyes for sure!

    2 pages of 2 minute gestures, a couple of 5 minute gestures, and a 1 1/2 hour drawing.

    Work In Progress....... First real attempt at a digital painting from imagination... spent way too long on this, it's only partially rendered, and I can't seem to get it past looking like a cartoon. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
