    great start. it's good that you are working on this. here's what i suggest...it seems from here (obviously i can't see what reference or model you are working from) that you proportions are off.

    here are a few excercises i suggest

    1) draw from photos that are upside down
    2) do timed sketches...give yourself 5 mins,10,15,30,45,60 minutes to do a drawing. work your way up through the time
    3) don't worry about tightening up your work so quickly, it's more important at this stage to capture the emotion of the figure

    but keep it up, you've def got some talent - it just needs refined.

    just draw more than you ever have before. spend at *least* an hour drawing a day. the old saying is 'you've got 10,000 bad drawings in you...it's better to get them out of the way first thing, then you can draw something good.'

    use the exercises i have suggested and draw till your arm hurts. it's the only way to get better. at this point i don't feel it would be constructive to crit each sketch.

    if you want an excellent resource, the book "the natural way to draw" by nicolaiedese (i butchered the last name...but i can't find my copy right now) is an excellent drawing resource that has an actual 'workout' plan for students. old school teacher, great results though.

    :::: perspective
    :::: foreshortening
    :::: symmetrie
    :::: dynamic
    :::: vanishing points

    get a book about anatomy : bourne hogarth is really good *he dont draw skin he only draw muscles - which is good visualisation*


    check my tutorial in my sketchybook
    ..evrything u wanna draw is placed in space..
    what u need to know to place it right.. is : know form shape and volume
    draw a simple cube.. this is ur form volume and shape...
    try subdevide a body into easy geometrie.. a body are cylinders and cubes.. maybe some complexer cubes but .. still cubes

    pm me or leav a message in my sketchybook if u need more help

    okee

    when u like drawing bodys... subdevide them in easy geometrie
    cubes and cylinders.. try to understand how the body is setup

    *a cube is setup with just lines..*

    try to understand how symmetrie and foreshortening works
    thin about it ! i do that too.. all the time i check my surroundings and try analysis : where is my viewpoint and h0w does the perspective feel to me * i try to find the lines which setup my inviroument.. "SIMPLIFIED"

    i made good improvement while i tried to.. draw stuff like cubes.. when i understood the objects shaope and volume i started to draw them more smooth from l to )

    realistic drawing is hardest task .. i wanna do that too sometimes.. but before i need lotsa practice about form and shape.. when i understand this.. i easyly create a realistic head from any of my simplified cartoon heads or whatever

    check my sketchbook and see how i proceed

    ur lines are allready clear.. so u dont need to practice these.. u can do later more..

    think about perspective.. when u draw a body.. u need to obey same rules when u draw a cube.. because of ->
    : perspective
    : foreshortetning
    : symmetrie
    : dynamic
    : vanishing points
    no body without these rules
    no cube without these rules
    no drawing without these rules

    when u wanna draw an arm vor example.. think about the volume.. which is similar to a cube volume .. when u draw.. keep all dimensions in mind.. 3dimensions... to prevent u from getting flat stuff
    this is one task .. do some perpsective studies.. and analysis.. analyse body parts seperated..

    uper lower arm and leg.. ripcage stomach hip*pelvis

    hand with fingers... face eyes lips nose ears zygomatic bone * important face part*

    then connect them... before connect them, u need to know the form and shape.. and how the form and shape changes when u rotate ur objects..
    take a look at ur lower arm and see how the outline changes while u rotate ur arm.. to draw the arm perfect u need to know ALL shapes.. u learn of of that with cube and form analysis... try to understand the forms of ur body parts.. they are simplifed cubes but in fact ur arm isnt cubical.. try to find the difference.. and then draw and keep these rules in ur mind.. and u will improve

    u can resuest more help in my sketchbookk.. just ask and tell me where u have probs... u can also add ,me to ur icq msn if u like



    pss : check my tutorial *in my sketchbook*

    Don't feel frustrated, you are doing very well for a beginner. I would reccommend the books by Andrew Loomis, I think they are available at saveloomis.org You already seem to have a good foundation with shading, just don't give up!

    hello all this is my first attempt at life drawing
    i was drawing from photos for a year
    this is my father it took around an hour
    i realised the difference today drawing from life is much easier as its 3d other than the 2d surface of a photograph which is flat which i felt made a huge difference to me as i am a beginner
    i cant attend any figure drawing as there are non in my country but am learning with photos and drawing toys what else can i do plz help me

    omarpac,

    We could all use improvement, but for a beginner you have a very distinctive style to your drawings. The muscular man who is facing the viewer is especially interesting. Your lights, darks & mid-tones are already better than most beginners. Keep drawing. We would love to see you develop.
