    not my best or favorite stuff, butt we all have to start somewhere...

    skip a couple of months of pages, i start to pick up some anatomy books.

    Wow, that's awsome, Similar story with the 16 thing, but I just started serisouly drawing this year. I really like the anatomy drawing, and the faces look great!
    About how long doing anatomy before you 'got it down'?

    Crappy stuff by me!
    Please check it out and drop advice, tell me what I'm doing wrong, and suggest things to learn!!!

    16 here, also. I think that in the portraits, atleast, you should lower the use of very dark contour lines, and give them more range in values.

    Good stuff overall, atleast potential wise, keep drawing man.

    The last thing could have some potential but as it stands, it has no depth, I can't really tell that the arm/eye thing is in front, they all seem to be on the samel elvel.

    Your sketches don't have depth - try using a really soft pencil like 6B or even 8B that way you can get some really dark spots!

    It's hard to give good crits, because you mainly do portrait sketches. do anatomy, perspective, gestures, figure drawing, environments - what ever comes to your mind, that way you develop your seeing skill.

    The portraits of the 22nd look like their middle line isn't correct, especially the big one in the left corner, where's the second eye? and why does the mouth stop so abruptly?

    Do MORE and do DIFFERENT things!

    BlueMech - that was a doodle but, no excuses! so i decided to change everything, even doodles! i.e. check todays update.

    Imageproof - i took your comment to heart with bluemechs and used a 6b this time w/ other shades. Im gonna also pick up a perspective book soon because im getting sick of heads, also im not done anatomy so im gonna move on to different body parts ....or try to atleast :p

    THANK YOU BOTH, for your comments, i really really apreciate it.

    Indeed, nice things going on here.
    I recomend you to work slow, look paciently, search the forms.
    Your heads looks fine. try using a understructure first the work your way up from there.
    Keep it up.

    Cheers

    Hi,
    that wacom sketch is great! I'd love to see some more like that one!
    Regarding your perspective studies, there's a big mistake regarding eye height.
    Also the bed in front would have to be much bigger. My tip go through Loomis' successful drawing, it has the best perspective chapter you can imagine!
    Great to see your using a 6b
    Keep it up!

    cool stuff , you took the crits from people and used it and there is already inmrovement so you doing just fine. tho for just sketching try to use longer lines now they seem to be realy sketchy , just take your pencil and draw without lifting it up , this will imrove your line quality alot. i'll be checking from time to time

    its not bad but a lot of it seems the same
    try things like perspective, tilting the persons head to give attitude
    differant expressions
    that way they are all differant and it will give you great expirance in emotion
