it's been more than a year. please go to the last page to see recent pics.
I'm new to this forums (well, found it some month ago) and the great pictures and sketchbooks posted here were the inspiration I needed to finally start drawing more seriously. I have always enjoyed drawing but never really practised. So this sketchbook might be the first step to keep at it.
Unfortunately I only have limited access to a scanner so here are the first pages of the first batch i got digitized
any critique and comment highly appreciated
so long! monotony
new stuff at the bottom, and im transfering few of the older pics into links as more than a hundred pics per page are really killing some internetconnections. and i don't want you to run away before watching the new stuff

Good studies and nice rendering
Maybe you could refer to loomis's studies, get the faces planes right. It could help you understanding how you should shade faces in a better way.
Remember that upper lips are darker than lower ones.
Anyway, keep going.
yea youre right about my faces, I really should get those loomis books and work on that. Right now I started with hogarth (but mainly hands, arms and figures so far) but as soon as I can get more anatomy books I' start practising.
Here are two of my first digital sketches. I bought the smallest, cheapest and oldest tablet ever seen via ebay and recieved it last week.
Painter classic used, delivered with the tablet.
right now i started with anatomystudies of the whole body (little bit more than all these hands ). hopefully i can scan them in a little bit more quickly than the last ones.
comments and critique please

Your hands are pretty good and they giveoff a nice sense of energy. However most of your work seems flat and your facial anatomy proportions are wicked off.

and draw those skulls also check out Loomis' stuff as was previous refrenced.
Here's what I'm doing for school right now.
one picture redrawn with different lightsources and mediums to achieve different effects. I guess I've posted some of the hands seperatly. sorry for the blurry photos
