    Dan, I've got a question, how big do you normally draw? It seems like you draw A4, but I'm not certain. It's just something I'm wondering about in regards to my own 'work...'

    Yeah I know, I do need to do more finished renderings. I will try to do more of those, but I'm still going to do alot of studies =P I'm not satisfied with them enough yet.

    Darkarts: As for your question, I have no idea what A4 means (I should so know all these terms by now >_< ) But ok, like the next page I am about to post is done on 8x10 copy paper, I should probably draw bigger....

    Also, sorry I couldn't post yesterday, I was gone to Houston for a baseball game... for now here are some hands ( 8 x 10 inches, just incase darkarts is wondering)

    Nah, I'm not saying you should draw bigger, I was just wondering. And A4 is a normal sheet of paper you would use to print out an essay, if you were wondering.

    Can I honestly say I'm getting jaelous? I've been staring at your shading for a while now. Those hand studies are rocking, I love just how you display form in your drawings.

    Ill say it, Im jealous especially of the hand studies you seem to have the form down on those.

    The most boring Sketchbook ever.

    No doubt he is a hand study addict. Great work there. I just started using loomis' stuff and it is inspiring to see how you have progressed.

    Thanks all for leaving the comments I will check out yall's sketchbooks when I get a chance.

    All right, I took the advice about drawing longer from life and here are the results, I spent about two hours total on these two drawings. I like the drapery better than the hand. I also tried to loosely follow the technique provided by Ron Lemen's tutorials.

    I also am impressed.

    Your construction lines look so effortless and clean... do you use any measuring tools? I can't for the life of me draw an even oval... I tend to try and freehand everything.

    TY all. Spork:No, I don't use any measuring tools, I do my proportions by eye, and ovals are hard to draw, you just have to keep drawing them over and over.

    It's good to see a beginning. At least now I know I'm going the right way when I start to shade my figure.... Now I just need to figure out how to make it that way in the end

    Nice work as usual

    looking nice
    And I reallly like the loomis construction type of face you made a bit up there, with the hands and the reffed loomis figure, looks really good.

    I don't feel like I'm challenging myself enough. I do the same things way too much. Any suggestions would be welcomed.

    I'd say you're getting worn out doing what you're doing, so draw from life a bit to work the kinks out.

    Where can these loomis books be found?

    Hey dan, I was thinking about some stuff, since you say you're not challenging yourself enough. These are all on my list as well:

    -Do anatomy from the mind. It doesn't matter how good you are with real anatomy, if you can't do it from the mind, then you can never do all the crazy stuff the pro's dish out without checking back every minute. There's a cool thread about it in the life drawing section.

    - Industrial Design. Cars, for example: don't do shading and rendering, but just do the lines. Cars have some complicated curves and spaces that will certainly be challenging. Other industrial stuff as well.

    -Life drawing. Anything that will help a lot - perspective in streets, foilage, and humans around you, WITH clothes. Build up a library of every day stuff that you can use to make some mind blowing artwork.

    -Self-portraits.

    -Barque drawings (pretty sure I spelled that wrong)

    - Colour! I haven't seen you do that yet, and I'm sure you'll pick it up easily.

    - A different medium - there's a whole new world to explore. Inking, markers, heck, if you don't want to steer to much away from the pencil, try charcoal.

    Hope that gave you some ideas.

    Dan, I think I know what you mean. I've been studying Loomis this week and I'm already starting to get restless. Just feels like I'm tracing the whole time. I think darkarts has the right ideas. I myself am going to try and do my own stuff (drawing from memory) inbetween my book studies. I'm bookmarking you're book I think I can learn alot from you. Keep up your studies, they're looking awesome. I especially like your life stuff.

    Just want to say thank you all for the advice!

    Spork: The loomis books can be found at http://www.saveloomis.org , I just downloaded Creative Illustration today and plan to print it soon, I'd recommend you start with "Fun With A Pencil" or "Figure Drawing For All It's Worth"

    Adahl: Sorry, a little hard to figure out exactly what you mean, but George Bridgman was a figure artist that published alot of books in the early 20th century, if you're wondering, I recommend his books.

    Darkarts: Thanks, alot of useful suggestions, I will try as many as I can. I was thinking about industrial design today, imagining my modem to be a giant building (nerdy ^_^), I've also wanted to do some SP's for awhile, I'll have to get around to doing that, I have no excuses =P

    Tokidokizenzen: Thanks, yeah the loomis stuff can get boring if you do it too much, but I guess it pays off in the long run.

    Allright, here are some bridgman studies

    here is a drawing I did for the DSG today

    this is a composition study from a Toulouse-Lautrec drawing, the exercise objective was to trace the forms, invert the image, and then make any changes necessary to make the composition work in inverted form

    looking nice
    My suggestion would be to do some anatomy "studies" from your memory.
    I donīt really know if you think about what you are drawing, but that will prove it to somewhat, I mean when you draw, dont just copy it, think about what it is why it is there etc. sorry if you already do that

    Ok. I was so lazy today. I guess I was just burned out.

    I did some anatomy stuff from memory. It shows that I really should practice this more, drawing from imagination in general is probably my biggest problem.

    quick hands because I didn't feel like anything else

    Yeah I had fun drawing the alien =P I need to draw more stuff like that.
    I decided to give gouache painting another go, I figure I need to start out with greyscale until I get comfortable with the medium, color always leads me to frustration >_< Also, you guys are too soft on me, give me some really hard crits, I can handle them.
    All gouache except the little sketch of the speaker in the middle. The painting of the speaker has wonky construction.

    anatomy studies from ref, must memorize!
