Super slick stuff man. Talk about large array of subjects.
Very clean and smooth, prim & proper.
Nice studies, they have alot of pop and Peter is class A.
"More I say!" ..and the crowds did nod in agreement.
Btw the arm and the leg above and under Peter, is somehow odd. Looks mechanical...
But still Awesome
An artist cannot fail, it is a success to be one.
how do you get those fantastic hatching lines on the leg?
Really varried and very cool !
Why don't you have a website ??? I'm going in withdrawal already
Hey thanks a lot!
Sorry egerie, but Istill have no website (not enough time - have to sketch:-)
Very, very nice.. We need more pencil works around here, keep posting please
I must know how you get those beautiful hatching lines. Please tell. Particularly those on the muscle study.
the sketches are cool ! i like those muscle studies =)
I love pencil drawing and yours look good and clean, mine are mostly mess hehe
I notice some Bridgman Constructive anatomy, or am I wrong?
All in all, nice work!
awesome cross hatching dude- guess the only thing i'm gona crit is the strong man on the first pic lower right hand corner (his bulging muscle is rather odd) but other than that it all looks sweet.
Very very nice studies. What book/books are you using for reference? Do tell. My favorite is the guy with the big lips in the first post. Just wanna kiss 'em!... Well, maybe not .
Your drawings show a very solid foundation, like someone who knows their anatomy. Which you obviously do. Great stuff. Please post some finished illustrations as well when you get a chance.

Len: I try to follow with every stroke the form and the muscle direction. It´s hard to explain with my poor english, but it´s just practice!
getata & poly: Thanks, man!
reeves & Gunbu: Yes, I use Bridgman and (my favourite) Gottfried Bammes, and Muscle Mags , and Gunbu, no, my knowledge of anatomy is still VERY poor, I just copy a lot to learn more. But I feel that I´m improving and that motivates me.
Here are new sketches:

Baahhaa! That Bavarian (?) is great Looks like it got lost in your sketches.. or is it a "before" and "after" thing to show the effects of fine beer ?
New Sketches! Ref: Gottfied Bammes again and John Singer Sargent!
Ref for the man in the left corner:
Charles Lebrun (1619-1690)
Thanks a lot, MindCandyMan, and by the way...
*gasps* what a great thread! I love the look of your work, very refined and confident. I'd like to see some dynamic poses to see how you handle foreshortening. I'm interested in seeing how you would keep the form flowing in the depths of space. Keep up the excellent work!
like your works.....good job
Thanks a lot, geckonia and behemot 5!
These are new sketches I did the last two days (I try to sketch at least one ore two hours every day).
"Sketch quickly with light strokes on your pad
(which you should always have with you),
and when it is full, start another, never rubbing
out but keeping all carefully, because the forms
and motions of the bodies are so infinitely
various that they cannot possibly be retained in
the memory. Therefore preserve your sketches, for
they are your assistants and your masters."
-Leonardo da Vinci 1452-1519

I never get tired to check this thread once in a while. We're even spoiled with great quotes now. yay.
Hola Robolus! This is my very first post, and I just had to say (well, type) I love your sketches! keep up the good work! and thanks for the lovely quotes.
Robulus, you've done two things to me in the past 5 minutes reading through this thread.
a) make me register here just to write this post
b) inspire me to get off my butt and sketch more, and definately devote more time toward specific studies.
mind blowing. cheers mate! :chug:
Your feedback helps me staying motivated and sketching at night instead of watching TV! Thanks a lot!
mommieweb and viZual: WELCOME!!!
