I used to do sketches semi-regularly in a small art section of another forum, and I really liked getting crits and opinions from other users. I recently picked up my sketchbook again and, finding that that section of my old forum is essentially dead, ended up here
I decided to stop completely wasting my time spinning my wheels on purely original work and to try and pull some of the fundementals that I had always ignored, and so I submit to you, my new beginnings here.
I've started doing a bunch of photo referenced drawings. I've barely started and I already feel like I've picked up a tremendous amount over my past efforts. I think what I really should do is do some bone and muscle studies, but doing "complete" sketches from photos ended up being a lot more fun than I expected I guess I can only make so much progress at once, heh.
Gah! sorry about the links, stupid img tags don't like the script. I'll get it fixed as soon as I can, till then here are the thumbs

nice sketches, one thing i noticed though, the tennis players left arm, (the one not holding a racket) looks a bit weird, i can't put my finger on what it is that bothers me exactly..
keep up the good work.. and thanks for the crit in my SB.

The arm thing is this... the forearm is too short. Simple fix! Hand is too little as well it seems. The arms on the guy directly to the left have issues too (bicept placement on the right arm, elbow placement on the left) but easy things to fix.
The girl in the center at the top if pretty sweet... keep it up! Work on the proportions and anatomy.
Welcome to CA!

Thanks, that hand was a tough shape to get out of the reference for some reason, it never quite came acros right with a forshortened forearm. I had completely run out of steam by the time I got to the climbing guy, and that one's all over the place :p
The center girl is also my favorite, also happens to be the very first one I did, heh.

An attempt at self-portrature (ugh)
And some hands I'm not to dissatisfied about

A lot of time passes, and not a lot of drawing gets done but here they are all the same, good, bad, and ugly (well ok only some of the ugly)
no ref, just meandering
I really liked this one
More w/ no ref, blah
Now this one was interesting, saw the shape in my kneaded eraser and just ran with it. I like this little guy, I expect I'll be drawing more of him in the future.
An unfinished suit of armor for the above
Tried drawing stuff on the TV, it moves by a lot faster than I expected. So instead I drew my brother laying on the floor

Well I ended up getting completely swamped at work (sys. admin) and haven't managed to do very much drawing since I last updated, but for the new year I've quit my job and I'm going to take advantage of a couple months of being unemployed to finish an animated short I've been working on (in 3d)
As part of that I've decided to do at least one self portrait (and two hands) a day. So far my first one has looked the most like me :/ . I've been stretching the heads out vertically, gonna have to keep a closer eye on that.
