props to you man, I'm seeing progress with every post! Like everyone else said, don't stop practicing. Cracking that loomis book would be a great idea. Start reading and practicing the ideas in there. Draw the images from the book, draw people, draw whatever. Just keep drawing, you're doing fine.
thanks for the feedback, yea i'm going to practice as much as I can.
Looks good so far.
You might wanna start using bigger sized scetchbook/ pages.
To do like a single big figure and have enough space to go into detail later on after y might have defined the mayor shapes.
thanks, yea, I should try sketching on some really huge paper sometime.
thanks, yea your right, must work on eyes.
#171 - blackhole?
These suck pretty bad too...anyway heres what I put out today.
thx for being the first to comment on my sketchbook - from the looks of your sketchbook u seem to have one of the same problems i have - too many lines. . .i dont know about you but for me I think its just cuase i'm afraid to get the form right teh first time. . .silly i know
anyway, try to do much less lines and still bring the figures to life.
I my girlfriend & my book of sketches
yea, I have quite a bit of lines....but I think it's better to keep making lines until it's right...I mean am I supposed to just settle for if it's so obvious to me that it's off? I understand what your saying though thanks. I'll try to make less lines and make the images cleaner.
did these right before I went to bed yesterday.
wow puttin' in work looks like your coming along! Keep it up!!

That sounds like a good idea, i'm going to do that more often...I drew my hand with pen right after I read your post. Thanks
Definitely seeing the progress. You're dedication is really inspiring. I really hope you keep at it. Thanks for stopping by my SB. I'll be checking back.
thanks, i'll definetly be keeping at it
Thanks for replying to my sketchbook bro. You're doing extremely better from your first post. The road is really long but it's one we've all had to travel and still travel... enless you're some kind of prodigy. The biggest thing is to take your time and study the things you are drawing. Notice the shape ,texture,lighting that the subject has. You show alot of promise so keep it up!
^keep me going by visiting my sketchbook^
Dude the speed at which you're improving is spectacular just keep doin' what you're doing!
Live each day as if its your last, because it might be!
Damn man you've been working hard. It sure will pay off. I don't know the way you draw, but I'd suggest you looking more carefully what you are actually drawing. I have noticed so many times myself that I've looked but I haven't seen anything. In nature everything has a certain kind of flow and even a meaning behind every shape we see. The human body is such a beatiful example of this. I guess this is the thing that an artist has to learn. So keep up the studies and maybe put your pencil away sometimes and just study your refs. I'll be back soon.
Thanks, i'll look more carefully and i'll definetly keep up the studies.
Yeah i agree. When you draw from life you should try to simplify the drawing as much as possible. You are definitely improving. Keep it up.
thanks, I will keep trying.
self portraits...still slightly off
for fun. It's like a lizard thing protecting it's eggs from something. A spider like robot creature.
I find that it's easier to draw if you have something that inspires you. I read a lot of fantasy novels and get inspired to draw anything fantasy. If I didn't like fantasy I probably wouldn't draw at all. What I'm trying to say is 'Why do you want to be better at drawing?' It may help you find inpiration and set goals.
Anyway keep it up and don't get to stressed about improving. Give some different mediums a go as well.
a suggestion i would make is to draw slowly at first because it seems your drawing kinda fast there
