    Thanks! I admit I like it better this evening than I did this morning. No love for the face on the right? That was some accidental paint smearage that I cleverly disguised. lol!

    Haha! Well, it's clear I need to do a whole lot more. I just have to believe I'll get where I want to go eventually.

    Here we have a monstrosity of a self-portrait.

    Good update. Looking at the self portrait, I think doing some master studies of head construction would do you some good. I am in the same boat. Loomis head is pretty much the standard. Hampton and Hogarth have some good things to say.

    Thanks! I appreciate you dropping by.

    I'm trying to incorporate longer studies. This is about 3 hrs from a picture I took last spring.

    Good to see you are doing longer ones, try to pay bit more attention on form, especially on that last painting, ellipses are bit wonky.

    Thanks! That's the kind of thing I'm trying to watch out for. I'm trying to break myself of the bad habit of just rushing through my work. I'm trying to be more slow and patient. Really, I think 3hrs isn't long enough for a good study.

    Thanks man!

    Some sketches from lunch. I'll be glad to get back to my regular schedule. In other news, I've discovered coffee. I was shaking yesterday it was so good. I like shaking. Apparently downing two large iced coffees within an hour will do that to us water drinkers.

    Lol at the coffee. It's powerful stuff. Just know that caffeine tolerance can build up quick. I will actually stop drinking coffee for a week or two every blue moon just so I can catch the buzz when I start drinking it again. I'm not sure what's more addictive, the buzz or the focus that comes with it.

    Love the sketches of the dog, is it yours?

    Well, we're finally back online. Lots has been piling up. Also, finally got my YouTube account up and running. I have no idea what I'm doing, but practice is the best teacher. My younger brother wants to be a composer so we've teamed up to make videos. The plan is to do one video every Monday. We can make no promises as to the quality of course. I think his music is much more interesting than my drawing.

    I really like how loose your sketching style is. Mine is really rigid still, I need to practice it! I'm going to check out your YouTube! I want to start my channel up as well, maybe doing some late night sketching stuff.

    I'd be your first subscriber. Just set a deadline to get it done and stick to it. That's what we did. It helps with the whole procrastination thing if you commit to doing it regardless of how good or utterly shit your video may be. The point is to get started. Quality can come later. I'm butchering the saying, but "A perfect plan never executed is inferior to a half-cocked plan violently implemented."

    Thanks. I was listening to a lot of scary stories on YouTube during that time.



    Some minor sketches. I've been really focused on learning how to get involved in the stock market so my drawing practice has kind of taken a hit. I still make sure to do it every day though.

    Very nice updates and studies! I have to say lightly put, I'm not a fan of your approach to learning anatomy. If you, as you say learn every single bone then eventually you'll be a master at anatomy, yes. But it'll take 25 years. I highly recommend going at it the complete opposite way of what you're doing now, start with the big very simplified shapes, and then work your way down all the way to drawing a single vertebrae. Compare it to learning how to draw cars, and spending weeks learning to draw a single component of the engine, it's just not all that useful for the end goal you want to achieve. You can find Michael Hamptons Figure drawing pdf book online and that is an amazing approach to learning anatomy and one I can highly recommend, once you've gone through that book and learned about all the simplified versions of the bones and muscles, than you can go over it all again but in more depth, but your current approach of doing a single bone I really think is quite bad.

    Other than that though your sketchbook is looking super good, you're definitely putting in the work, with some slight adjustments to where you put in that energy I think you will see even more improvement!

    Respectfully, I get where you're coming from, but my study of bones is one area where I'm not going to back down. I don't care if it takes me fifty years. I'll certainly add more to my list of things to practice but I'm not removing bones from that list. It's a personal goal brought about by reading the works of Robert Beverly Hale.
    I'm familiar with the necessity of the simplification of forms that Michael Hampton covers in his book and completely agree on the value of this practice, but the value I get from studying a physical bone is not just anatomical. It's also teaching me things about 3d space, gesture, how forms transition from rounded to edged , and how light affects these varied surfaces and how to measure proportion from observation. Plus it's really fascinating to me.


    The car comparison isn't really fair though. An engine doesn't affect surface forms.

    Also, I don't want to appear overly aggressive or defiant on my bone stance by posting bones right after this conversation, but bones are what I was drawing this morning. So let me just end this by saying this: I recognize that you're farther along than I am, and I appreciate any advice or critique you may wish to offer. I will consider it carefully. I'm also gonna keep studying mah bones because it makes me happy.

    It's great to read your opinion on it and I do agree with much of what you said, the car indeed is a bit of an exagerration, this last page of bones I dont mind at all and I think is quite useful, it was just that I saw this one particular bone for multiple weeks and I think that's where it'll hurt, I have nothing against studying bones (contrary) theyre definitely very valuable, and I had not considered the other points you mentioned about form and gesture which are fair arguments. Most importantly it makes you happy and you enjoy it and eventually that is all that matters, I do stand by the fact that I think studying all the bones in the body together in a slightly simplified form will help you understand in depth anatomy quicker, but I see where youre coming from and you know yourself best so this might be the way for you.

    The color piece is quite an early wip but it seems like quite an ambitious pose and lighting so I highly recommend you get awesome reference or make photos of yourself in the pose, to make sure you get the perspective and proportions looking right! Looking forward to more bones

    I believe you're right. I feel like I need to study the major muscle groups as well since I haven't really messed with muscles too much. I also feel like my proportions need to be more clearly defined so I can measure them in space properly.

    Also I agree that doing the same bone for a week is a bit much. I'm finding that I prefer to mix it up just for the sake of my sanity.

    Lastly, I really like that piece you did with the purple lady and the wind. I want my work to feature deep perspective and motion like that.

    Well, I'm not thrilled that this is all I've managed to crank out in the last two days. Of course, time being limited I've been diverting power to other engines so to speak. I've been learning how to edit video, and I'm doing research on investing. My goal is to get all 9 members of my family to pool a bit of cash each month and invest in mutual funds and ETFs. Nobody in my family invests or has any kind of retirement plan. NOBODY! So I'm learning as fast as I can. I figure if we pool resources, we can make our cash go farther than a single individual could alone and we'll share expenses which reduce individual costs further. I'm really hoping the Marijuana market will be legal in the U.S. in the next five years or so. I've been sticking my little fingers in that pie too. Peace y'all!
