    BW's Sketchbook of boring Anatomy from the bones on out! Now on Muscles!

    I always wanted to be able to draw at the level of comic book artist ever since I was a kid.

    Figured it was a talent you either had or didn't. I was always "OK" at drawing but nothing special. I would draw on and off in high school then years later in college after a 5 year stint in the USN. Last time I was in an "ON" phase was around 2005-2006 time frame. Mostly drawing album covers that weren't too hard for me.

    Recently I have revisited the idea of drawing and learning how to, that like anything else, you can practice and improve.

    I have goals, to be better at every thing drawing, mostly to make stuff realistic!

    Any and all advice is appreciated.

    Oh, and thanks for looking!

    Hey, welcome to the forums and great start so far. You're practicing the things you need to be. What I'd suggest is to add perspective studies into all of this. Accurate construction and being able to draw 3D forms is crucial, so that'll be your best area to focus on. Keep it up.

    Bridgman and Hogarth studies. The heads gave me trouble, the features. I haven't drawn features in a face for too long...

    Hey there, welcome to the forums! You have some great studies in here so far, and it looks like you're really dedicated to improving.

    My advice is that you should try to work from life as well. It really helps you develop your ability to recreate what you see, improve your understanding of perspective, and get a better sense of how to make your drawings feel more 3-dimensional. When you always draw from flat, 2-dimensional source material, it's hard to move beyond that in your own drawings. Drawing from life is tough so start with really simple shapes and try to recreate the subject as accurately as you can. Getting a good feeling for drawing simple 3-dimensional shapes with correct perspective from different angles will also help your anatomical work as well because a complex form like the human body is essentially made up of lots and lots of simple shapes put together.

    Good luck and keep posting!
