    Red face Andrew Loomis Studies

    I've got a few of Andrew Loomis' books. I'm currently on the Figure drawing one.

    I'm following someone else doing the same studies online, because the book doesn't seem to explain the instructions for the exercises very well.

    So I'm just wondering if anyone else has done any of these studies? If someone could help me out? Walk me through some of these exercises..

    Maybe let me know what I could do better?

    I'm working through this very book as well Other than the first figure looking too wide, as if you stretched the image horizontally, I don't see anything wrong exactly.

    I'm not working through the exercises exactly like he does, though. I'm sort of using his system combined with my own vanishing points to draw figures. I also am finding it easier to get my figure looking 3D if I draw an entire box around it in perspective. It ends up looking like my person is standing inside a bookshelf.

    I'd show you on my own sketchbook thread, but I accidentally broke it earlier due to my posts still being moderated. Actually, I don't know if this post will even show up right away...

    Slow down, take your time to get things right. Your grid isn't even evenly spaced, so it is never going to work...

    You are supposed to apply these things to a live figure, not copy the illustrations from the book...
