First off: welcome to CA! (lol funny cause I just registered today)
Anyway, i like your chairs the most, I would recommend some life drawing and stuff where you dont use a ruler (cant see much difficult in using a ruler hehe). This is a decent start and you just have to keep going, its all about practice but im sure you already know that!
I look forward to see more (how about you start with hands? )
Our decisions make us what we are.

I took your advice Anjo and did some life drawings. Just some hands and some horns I bought at a sidewalk sale for a hat rack. I also found an old blending stump in my room, so i decided to try it out on the cup and ball.

Welcome! Try out a couple of round things with the 1 and 2 point perspectives. or a whole word. I'll get some examples drawn up and show you some basics. Okay I got a little thing to explain finding center and mid points which will be helpful for more complicated things. It is for 2 point perspective. Hopefully this is some help.
And here is another thing that may help.

Sketchbook Representing Western Wisconsin
Thanks for the tips ludwrathjd! I got two pages up today. The first is some quick sketches I did at a restaurant. The second is some more hand studies that I don't think came out very well.
Keep practicing all that you learn. Perspective is a fun place to start, but it can become a rut that doesn't offer much advancement if taken alone. (I was stuck to perspective drawings for the longest time.) So it's good that you've begun drawing a variety of things.
Check out http://saveloomis.org/ above all I'd recommend 'Figure Drawing for All It's Worth' It will get you started on the figure and it also includes a number of perspective diagrams that you'll be interested in.
Keep at it man, you're on your way.
Thanks for the comments everyone!
revender- Actually, I got a copy of "Figure Drawing for All It's Worth" a few days ago at my library. I hadn't had the time recently to read it much, but I did a proportion study from the book today since you reminded me. hmmm...I think I made him too thin from the waist down. I'll do another tomorrow.
I definitely made his waist too small.
Thanks Zulle! Youv'e got an awesome sketchbook yourself!
I did another loomis study today. I think I got the proportions down a little better this time, and I inked this one too. I also did a quick sketch I was thinking about for a logo/signature. I've trying to come up with a good one for a while and this is the best idea I've gotten. Any Ideas?
More Loomis. I got a little tired of proportion, so I moved onto gestures. The top row is just trying to get a feel for it, and the two on the left of the second row are from the book. The rest are from reference except for the one in the bottom left.
I should probably get a scanner.
Looking good. I see you're on the right path to progressing. Study, make notes. Draw very often. Bring your sketchbook with you to public places, draw people you see, etc.. It will help you a shit load!
keep it up
you got some neat sketches and also gave me some ideas for pics
you doing some good things man. looks like you were studying vertical dimensions of the form. Also study the horizontal dimensions too, that is hip, head, leg, and torso width.. etc.
also, way to practice using vanishing points and various perspective.
keep it up, all this stuff will serve you well.
Sweet! Three replies! I'm moving up in the world
Tigermilk- I probably should be doing more life drawings. I'll get around to it one day.
LoveHateWar- I gave someone an idea? Nice.
incolorinred- Thanks! I'll probably be doing these studis spanned out over a while. (mainly because I'm too much of a procrastinator to do them all at once.) After I finish Loomis I'll move on to the anantomy of individual body parts.
Ugh... These turned out terrible. I should probably be doing all of the views on the same page. I have got to stop being so lazy. I'll probably post more again tonight if I get around to it.
