    Now this is what im looking for! Greatly appreciated. I will definately try to work on the definition of my hand drawings, try to give it more (depth?) The rest of my 50 skeletal frame will be a mix of lined paper and plain white paper. As for the self portrait? Absolutely chum, ask and you shall recieve. Although I won't be able to post again for about a week, as I am leaving for Tokyo tomorrow for a short vacation. Hey, maybe I will see Tensai Tokyo while I'm there, eh?

    As always, thanks a lot for the comments! As for the last skeletal frame (the one with the guns) the reason that particular one has fucked up proportions is I was trying my hand at a little foreshortening, but the loomis arcs totally slipped my mine. Other than the hand studies, and self portrait, and skeletal frames, i guess i know where my next ventures will be in studying. gonna try to bust out a some action pictures using loomis arcs.

    Hey not bad man. My only suggestion for now(which i'm quite sure others have said) is to use a wider range of values in your shading, but honestly i think you should practice one thing or another. Basically it's hard to practice shading (which takes a strong understanding of light) and practice nailing the contour of whatever you're drawing at the same time. I personally think it's more important to start practicing contours first than shading. Take for example those hands you drew. Hands usually tend to have a few more bumps (from bones) and folds of the skin in them; so no amount of shading is going to make them look that much more realistic. So my suggestion. Nail those forms first. Worry about the shading later. Things might not look as pretty, but it will pay off in the end. Just keep at it man!

    Sith - Thanks for the suggestion, and thanks for stopping by. You are absolutely right about the hands needing more definition as far as bumps from bones, irregularites, etc. the next time i pose a hand drawing i will try to do one with just lines to show contour, and one with shading in my usual style, and i will try to incorporate a wider range of values.

    Everyone - Is there one thing here, above all else that everyone might agree I should work on for the time? My plate is starting to fill up a bit . Here is my assignment list so far:

    Anatomy (Skeletal Frames for propotion)
    Hand drawings with focus on contour rather than shading
    excersizes in increasing value range for shading
    self portrait
    general life drawing (lets not mention this one for now, since it is a given that i should do this)
    eye studies
    face studies
    anatomy (muscle structure)

    Last update for about 7 days. A self portrait from photoref, with my cat (she looks like a fucked up monkey-dog or something in that picture.. but i guess that is why we practice, right? to get better). And a torso study.

    Well, I just got home from Tokyo tonight, and I have the last of my promised dump of 50 frames (and tried to pay more attention in making them look good, an tried to stay aware of the things TheGreyPencil pointed out in his critique of my last dump. So, here goes.

    20 more frames for critique:

    And since I was away in tokyo for so long, and unable to do much studying while away, I decided to bring everyone some present back:

    A couple of super rushed life drawings!

    These were done on the subway. I have one more done in pencil that looks better overall, but didn't hae time to scan it today. I apologize for how shitty these are, as it was my first time on the tokyo subway, I didn't wan to keep my attention off the monitors/announcements for too long for fear of missing my stops.

    Hey there, thanks for stopping by Drei.

    Here is a miniupdate, just a torso study from one of the loomis books (by the way, i forgot to credit the last torso study i posted as being from one of the loomis books, so here is my credit).

    greets dude

    hey, glad to see you're improving step at a time, thats awesome. here are them crits! dont get discouraged now eh, the skeletal frame is probably the hardest part of your art education in figure drawing. 3 Ps are practice practice practice! the OTHER 3 Ps are Perspective Proportion and Practice again he he. Read loomis, slowly and carefully now.

    TheGreyPencil - Thanks for taking the time to go over all my frames and whatnot, the pointers you are giving me are noted, and i will defintely try to pay more attention to their symmetry. The bend in the back of the knees is intentional, that is what loomis showed in his examples so that`s what I was trying to do (although it does look a bit strange still). Anyway, I`ve taken what i have learned during my recent studies, and tried to apply them to my character fellow. Please critique him, and don`t be afraid to be harsh.

    Epiphany - Updated August 23rd 2012


    Epiphany - Updated August 23rd 2012 He is shaded very lightly on purpose, just so no one thinks i did that unintentionally. The reason i shaded him so lightly is so that after i get some critiques on him, and make my corrections, i can clothe and arm him without serious redraws, and lots of erasing. Also, the horns that i have there are just place holders, again, once i get some critiques i will fill those in properly.

hey Thx for droping by my sketchbook
I have to say that I like thos 'not-so-shaded-ones'
and that the last one IMHO is better.
I saw that someone had recommended the loomis books
since they are good I also think you should read em
but your getting better!
Cheers

    Loosen up a bit and feel the pose. Add the details later, try to get the feel and dynamics of the pose first. When it comes to doing a dynamic pose, try to exaggerate it, it will make the pose believable and interesting. Keep on sketchin'

    Drawing loose seems to be one of my biggest shortcomings. I will take your advice about exaggerating. One big problem I have is that i don't do thumbs before i begin a sketch, which is a habit I am trying to break.

    Thanks for stopping by, and thanks for the crit.
