Thanks, groove. Yeah, I'm having fun with swingin' hips these days. Finally starting to have fun with hips & legs and lower body.
Gonna throw my other stuff from some other thread I did in here too, just so it's all in one space. These are sorta recent, but not as recent. Or maybe they are. I dunno. Some of ya may have seen them, too.

Skully done today with pencils in 2 or 3 hours maybe. It's on weird paper I got from my dad. Circa brand, 12.75" x 19", 80 lbs. See the close up for the extreme texture I was fighting. Blah.

i love the texture- it makes the subject more interesting.
don't fight with it, work with it.

i've seen some of your finished stuff and it looks really good.But most of these sketches look kinda old, so we need hyper new ones to crit you properly.Anyway, the female anatomy looks great, but you need to try n draw some real animal muscle groups n bones to get the fantasy creatures look "right".And about the male aatomy...well, use ref and anatomy books, most of them mostly concentrate on male anatomy
Maybe some sketches could use a bit less "hairy lines" if you know what i mean.Aw god i feel "evil" to crit you, so i'll go drawing instead

Hahahha, "Art Vandelay!" "Vandelay Industries!! Say Vandelay Industries!"
OK, sorry, I'm a Seinfeld fan. Anyhow, I thought about not fighting the texture, but I t was difficult because it was sooooo wide. Each stripe in the paper is like half a millimeter.
Anyhow, TheGnoll, don't feel "evil" critting me. I need it! Yeah, I'm very bad with muscles especially on males and creatures, so I'm working on it, I swear!
I'll try to update with some newer sketches.
Someone said I needed to do more life cast drawings so I'm gonna find all kinds of interesting stuff around my house to draw since I don't have any casts yet.
Thanks again for the advice.

I'm really liking that skull... and the rest, too (although some of your girlies should lay off the hairspray )
We've gotta keep this place alive while everyone is off having fun...

Captain Skinny is looking pretty darn flash. His far goggle may be a tad larger than his near, but the different textures of the materials are nicely done. Also, non of the upper teeth look to be overlaying any of the lower (usually, when the molars are together, the upper incisors will be in front of the lower, though your skull may vary).
So, I've been by here several times and it's obvious you can draw what you see. What I'd like you to try is drawing something from ref, then drawing it again without the ref. It will really tell you what you're observing and what you're just seeing. It really picked me up out of a rut a few years ago (which I've comfortably settled back into).
Flip off the desert for me.

That skull with the aviator's cap is pretty rad, goo. The paper gives it a shitload of interesting texture that I'm fucking SURE was a bitch to work with, though. Nice book.

Just did this one with no ref. It's a family portrait. ^_^ My husband's gonna kill me for effing up his nose. Should've used a ref for the gun (as usual), and his arm is all wonky. I think he's less chunky and I'm more chunky, too.
Maybe, I'll do this backwards of your suggestion dogfood: Without ref first, then take ref pic, redraw it, and see how badly I was off
Thanks for all the great and helpful feedback, guys.
I'm making mental notes:
- draw from ref then draw by memory
- more males
- more male anatomy
- less "hairy lines" (i don't know what that means)
Onto drawing more stuff!.....

nice! I like your monster concepts, very imaginative
Maybe you should study some more anatomy though, your human forms are a bit smooth, or rubber-like, learning more about anatomy and how to define it should help!
Hairy lines means going over a line over and over again, making it scruffy and messy, so just work on getting cleaner lines
keep it up, that last one is pretty funny
