i started sketching a few months ago and started with not having drawn more than a few pages over the last couple of years.
i tried to take a two approach way. quick poses for figure drawing and general form building for perspective drawing.
i'm currently reading michael hampton and scott robertson.
please go ahead and c&c! i would be glad to hear your opinions.
edit: tried to debloat the first post of all the old scans for a new thumbnail

You are a good reference !! Scott robertson and mickael hampton!! Keep your work !! you can only improve you !
Wow man, I wish I was this good with gestures.
For a beginner u got a pretty good sense for gesture and perspective....
Love it so far.... u got any finshed pieces? would love to see them
Hey ,you remind me of myself quite bit I've started several months ago too! It's really nice that you study Hampton, his book is amazing and you can learn A LOT, I still work through this book. I think the same thing about studies and sketching stuff, I actually prefer doing studies because I feel like I'm improving a lot faster than if just drawing from imagination. Though I don't completely shut it off ,you should draw from imagination too! Studies are important as hell but you should do your own stuff to develop your style. Also, don't depend on digital too much, the outcome of studies is nice but traditional is more important at this stage, cheers
Please check my SKETCHBOOK,eager for any advices!
haha looking at your sketchbook i have to agree, there are quite some similarities. thanks for your comment and advice though, i think this is really something that i've been neglecting.
here's a small sketch i started at breakfast today and went over in ps, no reference this time. the legs look a little strange to me..
edit: added a suit and some solid colors, but didnt notice the shoulder asymetry until now..
and another minor update, its obviously a super flexible, ergonomic suit :D

Very nice gestures. Can't wait to see more.
"The doer alone learneth."
Damn. Your gestures are great. You have loads of energy in your drawings. Maybe try to not use any weird brushes or effects when you do painting studies, just stick with one brush for now and try to work with big shapes and then get more into the details. You're already better than me though haha. Can't wait to see more.
thanks for your comment. i dont feel nearly as confident as the strokes look though, i guess PS helps a lot, something i dont really like... trying to do less ctrl+z lately.
i hope to get some scans uploaded soon.
meanwhile here are some 'thumbnails' which i've been trying to do more of. comments on these would be greatly appreciated
