    Interesting tack you've taken, using swimsuit and lingerie magazines for ref. I'm sure you've noticed the downsides (besides there being a lack of suitable swimsuit babes in accurate combat poses) such as washed out lighting and similar poses. I think your hands are still your weakest point, and then feet. A good mag to get for hands might be an entertainment magazine - those often have more interesting poses too. Just a thought... Nice work!

    Hey G,
    Just wondering...do you try to keep these sketches to a time limit? Like, do you say to yourself, I am only going to spend 30 minutes a day doing it, or do you simply put as much time in as you feel is needed. I ask because I know you have a painting thread where you use a time limit.
    Whatever you do, don't look at my Sketchbook and Painting Thread!

    Teigrob, Thanks for dropping by. You're right hands and feet are a real weakness. It's mostly impatience. I cant stand fiddly details anymore, I want to work big and bang out big results fast. Comes of painting murals by the square foot I suppose. I'll have to do some hand and foot studies just to discipline myself.

    hylandr2, I don't really have a time limit on these, they're just something I do in my spare time. Most often while on breasfast or lunch break in some fast food joint. I carry a sketchbook plus some partly finished sketches in a loose leaf folder with some magazine clippings of poses, costumes armor etc. So I just work on whatever appeals to me. I find that even if I'm heading off to paint a sign for a pizza shop or something it still gets my creativity flowing if I sit and do something like this for a while first.

    This is another one from my drawer full of unfinished work from 10 years ago or more. I liked the costume, but botched the face while inking and now I can see anatomy problems so it's time to re-do it. You cant really see it, but she was going to have a pet panther or something behind her.

    I couldn't find the same pose in any of my stuff and didn't want to fake it, so I'm using this pose instead, we'll see how it goes.

    aliceglass, You're welcome

    This is another ancient one I now realize that the anatomy is extremely bad. I drew her without refference or any preconcieved idea this is just how it came out. She was originally rather explicitly naked, but when I wanted to enter her in a show I chickened out and made a costume for her. I never really liked the way it turned out and always felt like I'd ruined it.

    This time I found some refference pics. Nothing exactly right I had to composit this from 4 different photos and still had to fake a lot.

    hylandr2, I grew up in the savage wasteland of Prescott Arizona.

    Here's yet another from the vault. I think I had a refference for this one but I don't remember. Check out those skinny knees!

    So I traced her onto bristol board and fixed up some problems. Her legs look too short now that I put some meat on 'em.

    If you thought I'm starting more projects than I'm finishing you'd be right.

    You've been busy I see. Great re-done's from the past. #109's head seems a bit small now. I'm impressed, you've managed to work in some background to a lot of your sketches. Now I gotta work on my own. #110 great contrasts. You made a dark back ground with almost no shading to the character. Makes her stand out really well. Great work. Later!

    Wow! 86 is my favorite. You are an inspiration. I have been trying to draw girls also. Any general tips?

    darkchild, Thanks the background's do help give the character form sometimes.

    Frank the Ninja, 86? seriously? huh.
    Don't take this as a snarky answer because it's not intended that way: The key to drawing well is to draw A LOT. My painting teacher used to say "If you want to paint good landscapes paint one hundred landscapes. Number 101 will start to be kind of good. If you want to paint good still lifes paint one hundred still lifes. Number 101 will start to look kind of good."
    Same goes for any other subject or medium. I'm just starting.
    That being said I looked at your sketchbook and you're doing pretty well. I assume that you realize you're being a little cartoonish? Shoulders too narrow, neck too long, head too big. You should learn to draw realistically first and then learn anime or whatever not the other way around like most people do it. Otherwise I can tell from your construction lines that you're going about it pretty much the way I do. Keep it up.

    This one's really old like 1978 or 79. The ink wash wrinkled the cheap paper we had at school. I know I used a refference; the lingerie section form the JC Pennies catalogue I think.

    Obviously I couldn't find that refference again so I found a similar one. This is just a rough.

    hurricane, Thanks you've been a busy man yourself. There's no purpose to any of this stuff, I just want to draw.

    Here's yet another really old one. It was drawn so light that I couldn't trace it so I darkened the lines and made corrections as I went.

    Then I traced it onto toned paper. That's it so far.
