    I am currently reading many of the Loomis books but the majority of my studies came from "Heads and Hands" (that would be the reason for the head spamming. Haha). My sketch book is lacking original character concepts and other creative works. However, nearly all of my sketches are drawn from my imagination, and are application sketches, cementing my studies in my head.

    I am taking a life drawing class this semester, so many of my uploads will consist of charcoal drawings and gesture drawings. I am a part of a two man partnership on CRIMSON DAGGERS, so alot of the posts will also contain challenges between us and characters with attributes randomly selected n a character generator. This solves the Lack of Creativity problem that has plagued me for so long!

    I would like to have many critiques in the future! Until, then I will continue posting daily!!

    I'm studiyng loomis too, really great to begin with, what I would suggest is that you draw with a lighter line at first and then reinforce just the important ones, I hope that makes sense

    oh.... like contour line? I think I understand. Sort of like drawing with purpose; planning ahead and really thinking about the strokes before you apply the strokes on paper...

    Hello, Yea, Loomis rocks! It seems you have the same problem as i do, jaws, especially when the character is looking up, its a killer pose. maybe try to draw some skulls, it helps to understant the form and proportions. And when you're doing those cross sections for the eyebrow and middle line, maybe draw them all around the head, that helps me at least. Keep it up!!

    It's hard to explain because english it's not my primary language, it's like, you do the construction lines really soft, barely visible, and after you have everything lay out you just reinforce the important ones, the real drawing, without the construction lines, I really hope that makes sense

    Yeah, I've learned A LOT from him! Yes, I have gotten better with that angle, but clearly, it still isn't correct. I was starting to settle on that pose....thank you for the advice, and bringing that back to my attention!

    @M.Calza I do understand now, and it makes sense. I saw your sketchbook and I can see how and where you applied that method. Thank you for the advice, I am very grateful

    Thanks you guys, be sure to come back often! This advice is very important, and I would like to see if it is noticeable on my future sketches. Good luck to you all!

    Two life studies of a model and two updated entries from my sketchbook.

    My charcoal studies of the model are improving; I'm learning to build the body using a square/cube method. Works wonders when drawing from a foreshortened perspective.

    Practiced drawing heads using pen so I wouldn't be tempted to erase mistakes...helps me focus on line more. I also practiced drawing heads no refs. with fully mapped out features.

    I need to produce more work faster per day. Gotta really try harder. This is frustrating.

    Please, all advice and critique is welcome...

    I know how frustrating can be, but you have to get over it, about the heads try to mix referenced and non ref studies, so you can compare and see what you're doing wrong, when referencing don't just copy but try to understand.I'll wait for more!

    Ok, that's a good idea; i rarely draw heads from "reference" because they always become direct copies. I 'm going to start using a reference and mix it up a bit in my sketchbook.
