Great noses. First thing is to maximize the paper. This stuff isn't cheap and can add up over time. Use all that you can and do as many as you can on one page so that you can practice a lot more at once. Sloth was right on about giving as much time to art if you are wanting to seriously pursue this...otherwise, 3-4 hours is good...
it looks like on the noses you are starting to explore and understand the planes and forms of the structure. on the next page of drawings you are back to outlines and flat shading. I think you need to spend more time building up the volume. Maybe start from the inside or core of the form, and build from there.
The last little figure shows this problem really well the inner form is flawed and so the outlined outer form looks contorted.
I too struggle with anatomy and its harder than it looks
Keep working on it!
oh and paper's cheap
To see the world in a grain of sand, and a heaven in a wildflower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour.
Hey man, nice steady improvement. I think you tend to give the guys a little to much curves around the hips and waist though, looks a little feminine. Nose study and aliens on the end of page 7 are real nice. Dile gave you some sick crits, use them well
You have a problem with posing. They just aren't working for you at the moment. Also, you did some great nose studies, why not use them in your non-ref stuff? Keep messing around and you'll hit gold.
Keep at it
Nice, i envy the smooth confident strokes, and the detail in the studies.
Digg'n this one in particular.
the concepts look cool too. Im not sure if your going through and roughing out the whole body and where you think everythings going to be or not (sorry, im a touch lazy, i havnt read every page ) but if not, may i suggest you give it a shot, so the finals look thoroughly touched up to the last detail. only reason i suggest so is cuz its obvious you can achieve that sort of detail once youve got a general idea of whats going to be the finished product. best helps to keep it on paper as opposed to locking it up in your head.
i think that made sense. lemme know if im spouting nonsense
Hehe no its fine I understand. I want to do more studies for the time being though. I have a small study from Bridgman, and a small sketch from my trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I didn't get enough to to move through and sketch other things as I'd hoped. It was a school trip for a different class and we only stayed an hour so I did my best.
Greek Sculpture Sketch
LMFAO lad: this isn't Sloth, it's oki. Lol...
Oki: Uhm...hmm...Is the girl on the right in the last update facing towards us or away? Her back looks like she has a chest and her turned head isn't convincing enough. Also, I didn't know that greek statues looked so smooth and velvety. Maybe some harsher contrast and rendering would have made it look a lot better/convincing.
ANyways, you're better than I am currently, so keep pumping out more stuff and you'll keep it that way
KEEP AT IT
You need some stronger lines. They're strong, but they're a bit off. In the poses. Keep going though, and do some of those (I know, I know, the same old, same old) studies of anatomy.
I see some pretty neat ideas here, but they come short because it's not correct imagewise.
Some of them really shows progress though, like the two last ladies. Butt's yummy, even for me as that gender...

You sure improved - a lot - since I visited last time! New stuff have some kind of professionalism into it, very good oki! Please keep it up !
Just looked at the last page only. Made me want to go back thru the whole thing...I think I just might do that. Great studies/pencils.
Watch out for Piranhas
Man oki...you are getting better...is that a marilyn monroe ref? Either way, yay or nay, it looks pretty good...See ya around and keep at it
Stark: It was actually Jessica Alba, but the image was going for the Marilyn Monroe look so i guess its fine. My thumb was hurting so i messed up a lot because i couldn't go into as much detail.
Finally got painter working on my comp again my thumb is back to normal all is well.
Here's a little warmup. Trying to get reacquainted with it.
Is that a vag?
