Hello, stay a while and listen...
After a dozen years of only doodling here and there i decided to buy a few sketchbooks and put more energy into it. I'm very rusty and would appreciate some feedback.

Just keep drawing man and invest in the tablet as soon as possible!
Still having problems with my phone camera. Tried desturating, playing with the contrast/ brightness and a bit of sharpen/ un-sharp mask...
First off, some older exercises after reading The Vilppu Drawing Manual
Random sketchy stuff
Skull Studies/ Starting to learn anatomy
@Talib: Thanks for the encouragement!
I've got this very small (3" x 5") sketchbook i carry around almost everywhere to draw on the fly... two bigger ones for home. Got to say, I'm already seeing some improvement. I just have to keep my expectations in check so they don't rise too fast in relation with my abilities.
Drawing small is fine, but don't be afraid to draw large either. If there is one thing I learned in college, it's that using large cheap paper and forcing yourself to use large gestures (use your arm to draw instead of just your wrist) can really help you improve with line and form. It's not like these big drawings will have to turn into anything finished, but they are fantastic practise to loosen up your style.
Keep going! You're going in the right direction.
Dude i really love to look your sketches its so different and i want your permission to continue drawing one what i look on the top of the list =]

Hey, mate! Quite nice sketchbook you have here. I see in your last post you did some arm and hand studies. That's very good in my opinion. Don't stop there however. Do other parts of the body as well. Also I think , if you haven't, you should check Bridgman, Loomis and also Bammes. Try to draw whole figures from those books as well. Another thing are gestures. Do whole lot more of those. Try to motivate yourself to spend at least half an hour a day on them. Currently I find quickposes.com quite useful, but also try artists.pixelovely.com . Keep up the good work and best of luck in your path.
Well hello there!
About time i updated this. I have been drawing a LOT.... less then i should be :/
Here are some randoms from the last 6 months... progress is slow, and i realize that working on all the required skills will take more focus and discipline. Wish me luck! (or other appropriate... euh, things)
All crits welcome, please be honest
