    I'm trying I really Am

    Ugh the sketchbook and pencil are not my friend right now, I do not have the mileage necessary. This is the work I've done for the past 3 days... I'm really just trying to power through the newbie period and get my arm to respond (There are Peter Han things in there which is why lines are traced over 8-10 times). I am holding the pencil at 90 degrees the best I can and not using my wrist at all for line work... This is stressful, frustrating and HARD but like hell if Imma take another 8 year break from drawing to lose whatever little progress I made... I just want my arm to respond to what my head knows...
    (EDIT: Attachmetns weren't showing so I removed them)

    Todays exercises and finished mixtape... Megacon got me off my practice... but I learned some things there and been working on the more paintly feel that Sinix keeps pushing. Also tried some of the Silhouette into characters from a forum I saw (sry I dunno the reference...)

    Trying Something New...

    The values on the Right eye are WAY botched, but I didn't have the courage to fix them... just kept it quick... composition needed a bit of work but got to stuck to deal with it. Ok with the colors... could of been a bit more cohesive, kept it raw and fast, trying not to over detail (that was hard to not do).

    Used photo reference

    You might find this set of tutorials useful. Try rendering your figures more geometrically to help you get a sense of the various volumes of the body.

    Today's exercises

    I usually post my last page of digital sketching considering I delete pages to not get attached or obsess over presentation and/or detail.

    i think you could use some tracing to get those contours and forms into your head and then do them free hand, as i see you have a bit of a problem with proportion and general balance, trace some of this drawings http://www.figuredrawing.info/anatomy/ or try to copy them as closely ad you can but really feel how they interconnect hampton is a master of construction and it really shows in all of his work, good luck!

    Can't trace (wont allow myself to), rather just do measurements, but will use the site you provided for reference studies.

    I went on posemaniacs and did an anatomy study... better results...

    I really liked the contrast Jimmy Yen piece. Studied this pick for ideas on the piece you commented on. I like the stark colour blends...a technique I struggle with.

    You may find these resources useful when thinking about gesture: 1, 2. Try to get the feel of the motion down first.
