    Thanks Jman, still working hard just not posting as often.

    Shifting focus for a bit on longer accuracy studies since I have a hard time taking gestures to the next level.
    Note to self: stop thinking of isolated lines and focus more on shapes in perspective.

    Week of frustration, switching back to digital gestures, since I was drawing scared with the pen and cramping up.

    1. Tried to do one more level of refinement but uncovered tons of problems in the process. I think the most immediate problem I need to solve is the skew, made painfully obvious after flipping the canvas.

    2. lighting, have no idea what I'm doing with shading, just guessing at what I think looks right.

    3. Anatomy and detailing always needs work

    4.feels like I'm missing out critical details that made the thumbnail and gesture more successful than the more refined pieces. Need to stop getting lazy during the detailing.

    Still struggling with translating the gestures and initial sketch into something more defined. Gotta punch through this wall, I'll try to work harder tomorrow and next week.

    I think it might be beneficial for me to do some copies of other artwork to see how more experienced artists solved similar problems.

    -Pre-visualization abilities are still pretty weak, I want to be able to know exactly what I'm drawing before I start, not problem solve in the middle of the drawing. I know most artists do this to some degree but I think its better to conciously pre-plan and execute what you had in mind.

    Beach studies ref'd last page imagination.

    Problems from this week:
    1. Draftsmanship issues: Symmetry and skewing, drawing straight parallel lines, circles, ellipses
    2. Still drawing with a loose envelope aka everyone is wearing baggy clothing, will study more anatomy and try to be more confident with shapes
    3. perspective shifting while finishing drawing- sometimes lapse into auto pilot laziness and random legs or hands come out from subconcious. Need to stay focused and aware when finishing.
    4. Continue working on pre-visualizing and finishing what I had planned, try to deviate as little as possible

    Used google sketchup for the classroom, I think it was helpful in establishing a base to work from.

    -Noticed after posting- I botched up glasses kid pretty bad, proportion, alignment, upper and lower body disconnected.I'll need to study some more slumping/seating positions.

    Wasn't going to post because of how crap everything is but that's not the point of this sketchbook. I'll stay consistent and keep posting once a week.

    I still have a hard time visualizing and planning my next move which is why I struggled so much with this animation. But if I suck at it its probably what I need to be doing so I made a list of things that I want to animate. By the end of it I hope to be seeing images in my head and regain the ability to draw freely.

    Also crouching or poses where there is a lot of overlap are hard for me so I will work on that.

    1st page was from Skullgirl's Ms. Fortune then a mix of reference and imagination

    For this week, heavy reference and working slower, one imagination page.
    The skewing in the symmetrical drawings are still killing me and crunched poses are a lot harder than stretched positions

    Your animation is really cool!
    Some really nice gestures in your poses.
    Since you mention having problem polishing your drawings how about doing some life studies? and taking them as polished as you can, it doesn't have to be just people, they can be studies from objects too.
    Or you could try copying a pose from a photograph and making it as rendered as you can.

    Been away for a bit. Even if I stop posting I wont stop drawing.

    I am definitely taking your + other's advice and trying to slow down and polish my work.

    I tried to do slower studies mixed in these batches even though it doesn't look like it. I will have to work up my capacity for detail and learn to finish one step at a time.

    A ton of reference of other artists, and photos this time around.
