    No sudden urge to scream yet, ha!
    Your pencils are coming along slowly.

    I would suggest you to stop focusing on these few anatomy studies. There proportions are totally off so they're not helping you very much in the end.
    What helps you a lot are your still lifes!
    They are looking good so far and they teach you the most basic fundamentals best. Drawing from life helps you so much to train your eye to see things properly so you're getting better with seeing the right proportions.
    After a dozens of still lifes your accuaracy should have improved immensely!
    Then you can of course go back to anatomy and work on that.

    Keep it up!
    Waiting for mooore.

    I wouldn't say stop doing anatomy studies, instead focus more on proportion and simple shape instead of details and texture.

    Drawing from life is awesome- carry a sketchbook everywhere and sneak in some sketchy time when ever you can. Draw everything, people, plants, animals, cars, shopping carts. - anything that looks kinda neat. purses and boots are pretty good subjects cuz they have some funky shapes.

    Aside from that, perspective is worth it's weight in gold and candy.

    Personally, I think screaming is therapeutic.
    Happy sketching

    @Nemome & Rhubix - Thank you for your insight. :3 Sorry for the late reply lol I was just lurking around. By the way, I can't bring myself to stop on focusing anatomy. But I will try to draw them in boxes next time like the mouse and sharpener below and see how it goes.

    Personally, I think screaming is therapeutic.
    Actually I haven't screamed in a long time but I've been wanting to. Dat shiz keeps me sane.

    My phone camera is high quality... not. I've retaken those photos several times especially the pelvic drawing and it's still blurry. T.T

    I love that pelvis picture.
    Do you have a any gestural studies you could show? These are all quite tight.
    Your anatomy studies and still lives are very careful and precise, but they feel a bit flat right now.

    This Website offers timed figure drawing sessions using photographs. You can choose intervals between 30 seconds and 10 minutes.

    I would try it for a while to see if it helps. It's not as good as a flesh-and-blood model, but it's the best thing you can get at home.

    Ah no, now that will be on my checklist! I used pixelovely before, it's awesome. There are some drawings in my old sketchbook where I used pixelovely.

    Thank you for the feedback!

    Update! All those technical stuff started to bore me, so I drew some heads without reference.

    @AwesomeShane - Thanks, I don't know where to put it though. I have a printer/scanner for regular sized papers but meh! My sketch pad is 14x17.

    Hi!

    Thanks for dropping by my sketch book earlier!

    Keep up the good work. May I suggest you practice on loosing up your lines and do quick 2-5 minuets sketches of items and humans. It's important to have clear, well defined lines before you get into rendering (even if rendering is su much fun ).

    Cheers!

    I live in an apartment building in the city- so no place to go scream without causing a scene. best I've found is the bathtub people can't hear you scream under water... is that messed up? haha

    Your no-ref heads came out pretty good. Don't feel like you have to stick to one thing if it's getting frustrating, keep exploring, play with different pens and markers. There's no sense in pushing your way through the rut just change things up. You never know what you might learn

    Thank you for stopping by as well! Made me realize that I make lines by drawing them in smaller sizes until it builds up and I did it with this update again! lol I'll try to keep them as clean as possible next time.

    Thank you. I live in an apartment building too. But the bathtub is brilliant. lol

    You're right, I compared my sketchbook to others and mine lacks variety. I will try new stuff.

    P.S. I'm forgetting my life studies. I need some spanking.

    I did some line control exercises and I'll try to do them occasionally. And I'm about to move on to the muscle part of the book "Atlas of Human Anatomy for the Artist" by Stephen Rogers Peck, but I'm forgetting how the skull and pelvis look like (and probably the others lol). I'll have to stick to this part and do some reviews.
