I'm actually surprised it didn't turn out worse, It's still not near as good as I want it too.., but for painting freehand with no reference I'm quite happy with the result. (And it's waay beyond what I could do before I started the croqui lessons)
Wow this is really cool weird that no one has replied to this yet. Some of these landscapes are really cool. I think your work looks pretty good but you should try to focus on one particular thing like lightning perspective anatomy or something so you have a clear goal and dont make a big mess because your drawing in all these categories at the same time. You are doing quite some pose studies so I think it would be best to focus on those and if you feel comfortable with them try to get into the anatomy unless you think other things will benefit you more ofcourse! Good luck.
Ma Sketchbook brings all the girls to the forums, damn right its worse than yours.
Yeah my internal goal is to get better at anatomy/figure drawing.., basically because I suck so much at it and it's completely out of my comfort zone.
I'll still post other stuff because I use this thread as a wenting place too (and I want to get better generally).., I want to look back after a few years and hopefully see progress, especially in anatomy.
Getting comfortable with poses first and then looking more deeply into anatomy sounds like a good plan. I think just being afraid of doing mistakes is what kept me back before.
