heres some sketchbook drawing I prefer pen since I don't have to care about what to do with all the mistakes
Ok heres a try at drawing straight lines. IRL the lines are 29,6 cm long or 11,65 inch long. I just fill an entire A4 paper. This time I got more than 130 lines next time I will get more lines in there and straighter.

The biggest problem with long lines is that I got a tendency to curve the line,
note to myself: Must learn how to move the entire arm better.

Yikes! What an exercise! Did you have the paper propped up in front of you or flat on a surface below you, like a desk? Propping it in front of you can help force you to use your arm from the shoulder, as can holding your drawing utensil like you would hold a piece of chalk (although, i don't know if that's really possible when using pen). I will have to try that exercise myself!
Your middle figure study has good weight to it.

cool stuff nice figures*life drawings
i draw straight lines with ma wrist..- the arm just supports the movement
i learned them with lil lines not that long ones .. learn them with purpose.. draw cubes.. and try to draw them as perfect as u can -> do one with a ruler.. and then u try freehand
keep up ((( check ma sketchbook )))
psss : draw cubes ! .. i really ove drawimg them and perspectives

Thanks for the comments
Sideshowbob: Yeah your right training cubes and also spheres, cones, cylinders is something you never could train to much no matter if you're a beginner like me or a hardcore pro. I do short lines too. I have to draw differently when I do long ones.
wertle: No I did have it flat I'm going to test "Propping it in front" of me
Ok heres som anatomy study from reference
Ok I'm trying to draw from my mind using Mentlers tip about just drawing figures small just to learn about gestures, but I also have to learn not only in theory about proportions and such too They are really terrible but they gonna be better. It's just so totally different from drawing from life. Tried to do them fairly quick too.

Have been learning about movement and proportions of the human.
I drew this from my mind did look at the other figure when drawing the head otherwise I had the other figures covered, to be forced to draw from memory. when I have drawn the entire figure I checked if the angles was correct if not I looked at the previous figure for some time then cover it again and corrected the figure. I did not use a ruler either. so it's a little jumpy.
Animation contains 15 frames.
considered my skill level I'm actually quite pleased with the result. Gonna do something similar in a couple of monts to check if I have improved.

Returning the favor...
I would point out that in one of the instances of the legs crossing, they corss straight when one of them should be leading with the knee up. You got this right the other time the legs crossed, so perhaps you simply forgot to put it on the end of the animation.
Your eyeballing in sketches is very good, and will only improve as you continue with techincal anatomy studies. Keep it up!

SJ Bennighof Thanks man didn't even think about it , just begun to study stuff like how people really walks etc.
and heres a print I made just so I don't post anything in my SB without an image

Another crit about your animation is the guy's step. Just remember heel - toe, heel - toe. It looks like he is just sliding his feet along. If you're serious about animation a great book to pick up is the Animator's Survival Kit by Richard Williams.

Anatomy update to come within two days
March 21st, 2005 #13
ok...been working with anatomy
With the hand I've been testing the grid system. I think I'm going to stick with the grid system when I'm doing these anatomical studies, since I'm always eyeball everything else I do.
Thought I should post a progress of the hand.
first I draw in the contours using a pencil
Then I take of the grid and start to use my steel nib to ink contours and then to hatch, cross-hatch the shades.
