    start forcing yourself to do quick 2 minute studies over and over. first you have to learn the emotion and feel behind what you are drawing, once you have that THEN you can render..

    keep it up though, you'll only get better

    Thanks for the comment and yes I have to work on gestures. lets see if I can do some for next time. anyway all i had time for today were these two. The fist one is me revisiting my favorite character pose I used in High.

    Skull drawings sound like a good Idea. Plus if I ever have to do Ghostrider I'll have it down.

    Well here are more from my study of the Bridgman Book.

    Still got to get to the 2 min Sketches. They are tough cause i tend to tighten the drawing up very early on. Maybe tomorrow Ill do some of the kids.

    some very nice pieces here, I really like how you've done the legs on the character with the butterfly behind her. You should try and colour some of these they'd look great (that's just my opinion) good job, post more please

    Good stuff.

    I agree about the quick 2 minute poses... try 1,2,5, and 10 minute sketches to really get down the foundations and structure of what you need to have before you can render it. Good that you're studying Bridgman, there's so much to learn from him. When you're doing the exercises and studies, don't just copy them but analyze them, or draw them mirrored over so you brain has to really work at it to understand what you're doing. Keep working hard!

    Ok thanks for the C+C. No Skull work yet but did manage to do a few gesture sketches. Here is a page. Man, kids just never stop moving.

    bengonzalez's Sketchbook

    And this is the WIP of "As I walk..." The figures left hand (our right side) is still bothering me. I just can't seem to work out that side. The hand may need to be straighter and not so bent.
