hey man, thx for checking out my sb! I see you are training alot, which is the best thing to do offcourse. Don't let go and keep drawing, at the pace you are creating you'll level pretty quick. You're overal quality is pretty good too! Learning to draw anatomy is, like noob said above, best done by life drawing, if you take lessons you'll see why
Yup, i see u know how to draw muscles and human bodies, i like your firm lines but try to make more portraits, or try to make them more real-like. I myself will try to draw my autoportrets until they are right (until now i've done none, but i plan to )
I have been drawing quite a lot but there really is nothing worth showing. I've mainly just practised cross hatching and circles, lines etc. Just a couple of "portraits"
Inkfish: Your right there. Once a smoker, always a smoker. I'm just a bit afraid of the upcoming summertime. Sitting on the beach, drinking beer and smoking a big fat cigarrette. That's life! Noooooo!!!!
Qxzi: Have to agree with you on that argument about the darknes. Though They weren't so dark on the paper. I propably just messed around with photoshop again.
Max1975: Exaggerations??? Who needs them when you make so many errors in your proportions and don't really know what the hell you are drawing. Thanks for stopping by. Always nice to see you here.
That fat kid: I really hope so too. I tend to get exited about one thing and forget about everything else for a while. And then after a couple of months I have no brain energy left. This is my curse.
Durin/Piru: Unfortunately my life drawing class got canceled. Too few participants. Shit, shit, shit, shit. Thanks for popping in.
T-raktor: Realism is still very hard for me to achieve. My portraits always tend to get quite cartoony. The sad part is that on most of my cartoony stuff I have tried to go in a more realistic style. Thanks for visiting my thread.
The "portraits" as promised

nice stuff! the faces are comin along really nice!
got really nice line quality, and the shading is good too!
just keep hitting the paper! and maybe do some planar analysis of the skull and such, and draw from life!
Flaskpost: Thanks man. I've decided to stick with the basics indefinately. I'm still just barely started to learn what I should be drawing and the skull etc. is one of the things on my long list of things to practise.
max1975: Exaggeration??? Who needs exaggeration when.... I must admit that the nose looks kinda funky.
Hey Placeboast: Quite a prodigious amount of work here. I can't really
add to any of the advice that's been handed out before. It's all relevant and to the point. I'm digging the 3D and this last head study. Granted there are a couple of issues anatomically speaking but really it seems like things are gelling for you. Keep this mojo kick you're on going!
Thanks for dropping by my SB. I see a lot of new things here, and a nice improvement in your shading tehnique. Also i really like some of the chicks portrets u made, others are not so cool. Also i can see that many of the man portraits here are not too bright. But i think u are on the right way here. I love the chick from post #153 really really nice lips (angelina jolie like), expresive eyes and a cute nose. Keep drawing this kinda things i love them. Cheers!
Just something i tought when browsing your pictures; you might want to try to introduce some more values to your drawings. When you leave something just white, it kinda breaks the form. When you leave white only to the peak light spots, it all comes together. That goes to portriture, when doing fantasy stuff the leaving of light is a nice effect. Sorry for the ramble.
Denysiuk Thanks. Will have to draw things from the nature. Today it was like -20 celcius in finland so maybe I'll wait a bit before I go draw in the park. pennigton How does drawing stilts help me? Thanks for popping by. That fat kid Yeah I know what you mean. I go through my thread and see really nothing interesting. Variety would be great thing, BUT.... my whole life I have been trying to do too many things at once so and never really learning anything. So I'm trying to restrain myself a bit and focus on the face for now. Maybe next week. T-raktor I know you like them ladies. Thanks for the comments. Lewis & masterpug Thanks for stopping by. I'll be going though your threads soon. Inkfishy Have no fear I'm still here. I really hope to get more advice freom you in the future 'cause you seem to know what you're talking 'bout. OK? Flaskpost Yeah I know that some variety would be great but at the moment I'm stuck with the head. I have been drawing for such a short while for know that basicly it helps me just to hold the pen (which is the most interesting excersize there is).
Didn't really feel like posting these. Wasn't really going for great drawings, more just searching for the form. Don't really like any of these.
for all your apprehensiveness in posting these, I think you're better than what you think yourself to be I like your face studies, keep practicing them in different planes and you'll be set.
Great work, keep it up!
