    Impressive studies! It reminds me of when I first started as well.

    A couple of things I wished I knew when I started out, hopefully they can be of use to you.

    1. While learning the muscles is vital, don't forget that skin exist, and will determine how detailed the muscles are drawn.
    2. Don't forget about the perspective of the bottom of the feet, being aware of this will help you with placing characters in a 3d space.
    3. Be wary about burnout! If you start to get tired, take breaks! Remember that you need to do this for the next couple of years.
    4. When you study, try to immediately apply it to a new piece. It'll help you retain the things you just learned.
    5. When doing gesture studies, always try to identify the leg or point where the weight is placed on.

    Your line weight seems to be developing quite nicely.

    Keep it up!

    Hey dude, nice hustle. For those portrait studies, it can help a lot to slow down and observe the space relationships between the different facial features, and constantly check your underlay sketch (if you're doing one) against the ref photo. There's a Schoolism class, Realistic Portraits with Jason Seiler, that has some good info on observation, measurement, double-checking your drawing, etc. If you're into that stuff, check it out. Likenesses are a big challenge to get down, so it can be especially helpful to be methodical about them.

    Thanks diamandis!! I definitely have a tendency to be impatient/inexcusably lazy with measuring. I'll be more diligent about keeping the spacial relationships in mind and checking with my underlay more. I'll definitely have to check out Jason Seiler's class since I do wanna get portraits down much better. Thinking about getting my schoolism subscription soon, I've just had stuff come up so I couldn't subscribe until I've taken care of it. Really looking forward to taking some of their other classes like the light and color and realism courses too!

    For the moment, my mind has been preoccupied with scott roberson's construction technniques. I've been trying to digest it more and understand it better. I still have to go over some other sections of chapters like the flaps and stuff, as well as just applying his studies in long, much more diligent and measured sessions where I break down objects or references. I tend to get a little impatient right now, so I'm fighting my bad habits. Oof.

    I still wanna do ctrl paint exercises and applied studies to portraits/still lifes too. @_@. I'm so slow.

    Quick post before work.

    You make drawing 3-D forms look so easy.
    Come say Hi! I could always use a boost.

    mm, really have to work on... well, working through frustration. a lot of these studies i take frequent breaks because I get annoyed. while I feel breaks are good, I'm not being productive enough. still. need to just work on shutting up and building mileage.

    anyway:

    here are: some heads and a jonpei copies. some no reference doodles in there too.

    Interesting sketch style, all the straight lines make the bodies look very angular and almost mechanical. I see you're very analytical. Actually that straight-line style might look neat af in mecha style, if you ever wanna go there. Neat anime style, too.

    @mkingamess - thanks so much bud! eventually I want to try mecha stuff, I've never done that before! but definitely just prioritizing some other things right now. appreciate the kind words!

    ----

    rib cages. working on a simplified skeleton + sculpting it to understand and visualize the forms better. one area at a time.

    also, I've been keeping up with daily line and ellipses exercises as a warm up routine. I gotta say, i'm feeling a bit better about line quality. there's no reason for me not to do it :p

    anyway: not a big post, but some of the better ones, i suppose
