    Nice stuff so far. You seem to have good control over your variation in tones, and the insect studies are excellent!

    I think you could really benefit from investigating anatomy rigorously. Check up on some books recommended from time to time here, there are quite a few; make sure you pick one that's suitable to what you want, though.

    And unless it's a conscious decision, don't be too timid. These are just sketches, try to work aggressively and really understand what you're looking at or thinking about.

    Thanks C-work. I've been thinking the same thing. My next step (between insect and watercolor studies) will be some hardcore anatomy. Hardcore in the "Intensive" sense and less in the "Porn" sense. Although hardcore porn is quite anotomical, but I digress.

    What are these "books" you speak of and are they available in pill form?

    J/K... nevermind the late night goofyness, can you suggest a few anatomy books? I hope to go to the library/bookstore this weekend.

    Thanks for the input

    Your poinallism is very nicely done. I also like your water colours. Your figures look a bit stiff but still drawn nicely.

    Really good sketches and paintings, man! Your insects look awesome, great job on the detail on them.

    Keep working on your anatomy, some of your figure drawings look really great so far, so you can do it, just gotta practice as we all do!

    Really liked checking out your sketchbook, I'll for sure come back to check on your progress!

    A few anatomy studies. I'm reading "Atlas of Human Anatory for the Artist" actually reading it, as well as using it for ref. It's the best Anatomy book I could find at the library. The other books lacked illustration and I would probably lose interest.

    Yeah Heroic, I checked that book out also. It looks really good, but the "Atlas" book is more condensed and just as illustrated. I like the section of "HAfA" that breaks the head and other body parts down into planes. I will read "Human Anatomy for Artists" when I'm done. The funny thing is that several pages of nudes were ripped out of both books. Damn kids!!!

    Another quick over-rendered anatomy study from clipart photo ref.

    Heroic, The paper is actually a cool grey color. I get it at work. I croped a bunch of scrap to 8.5x11 and bound them all together to make my home made sketch book. I don't know why it looks purple, it's grey everywhere I've looked at the scans.

    Thanks Pham... and I will keep drawing, I'm back to drawing every day for the first time in years...

    Since everyone likes the dog so much, I thought I'd post a drawing-from-photo I did (a few years ago) of Wilbur, a longhair orange-tabby cat.

    Here's the original Photo
    my book

    A thumbnail of the Final Piece. I hand lettered the "Wilbur" font, and cheated (Photoshop) on the background a bit.

    And a closer detail.

    I might scan some recent figure sketches tonight and perhaps draw some more to post.

    More guys, drawn more loose and expressive than usual... Most are done from memory. A few I used minimal ref from a new figure drawing book I'm reading.
