    Hey -j-,
    Nice start, i liked the hand and arm studies the most. Very solid.
    The head seams alittle weired to me, i dunno. The portraits are cool man. Try to do more studies.

    Post more.

    You shouldn't draw them smaller! There's nothing wrong with details. You've started your sketchbook off right. I especially like the study of the bird. Keep sticking around and posting, hope to see more from you

    Great bones! I always lose my patience on them, but yours capture the volume and shape very well.

    Hey, great start!!!!!!
    Nice studies, I especially like your anatomy works! The proportions of your kid portrait are very good (I always mess those kids up )!
    Keep it up! Post more and never stop!

    PS: try giving your pal frank some more head behind the ear, looks like his back head was chopped off a bit

    Hi -j-
    Your anatomical studies are looking good. IMO you should not only study details but also the whole body like doing simplified figures (doing them and you learn about movement and balance too)... then merge the knowledge you got from studying the details with your simplified figure drawings. anyway thats just a suggestion there are so many ways to learn.

    Keep it up man

    Ps:Hope you understand my English.
    Remember my advices taste best with a grain of salt.

    mindflaw - yeah, that's definitely a good idea. a lot of times i get caught up with trying to make a nice looking picture, and i don't really get as much out of the studies as i should. thanks a lot for the commment! (edit, so i don't double post). some old, some newer. been a long time cousin

    J,
    You have some really good studies going on here. The brown paper ones have a nice quality resulting from the way you have rendered them with the ink and white(paint pen?). You also seem to have a decent feel for portraiture, which can be really challenging. I would be interested to see how you treat the figure as a whole. Do you have any to show us?

    hey leslie, thanks for the comment! i haven't really done any figure studies yet, but i really need to. i'll try some over the next couple of days to post here. the white on the brown ones is a gel pen, btw. that method is really fun because it's a really good turd polisher (makes any of my crappy drawings nicer looking)!
