I got this idea from a recent DSG topic, I started it so I had to finish it. Basically it is a tree uprooting as it's last leafs fall to the ground.
For anyone interested below is the reference link:

Thanks for your time in advance.
I have been taking private art instructions and I am learning more about perspective, although I have not got it down 100% I am making progress. I will try to put some more stuff up soon, I am so busy drawing I don't make time for scanning.
Thanks for your time and any insight you can give me.
Also another key point in my life right now is that I got a Wacom Intuos3 6x8 for xmas. But my girlfriend will not let me have it until xmas morning, tell me that isn't fucked up. hehe
I hope to start contributing to COW etc when I can use the tablet and PS7.
So I am now learning to paint digitally with my new Wacom. There is no texture in this, and I am learning Photoshop 7. I think if I had drawn this out and scanned it in I could have made it a little better. But I am learning so what the heck, as long as I am having fun right....
Your off to a great start. Keep posting.
spend more time on studies please. keep at least 60% of your drawings studies
Also learning to draw with my new wacom 6x8. Here is a quick sketch I did when I first got it going. I think I have improved a little since then, below is a COW I am working on right now. I am having fun learning PS 7.
COW WIP #72
Off to a great start, I agree with the other members on this, you need to spend more time on your studies. Hoping to see more, would like see more anatomy studies as well. Keep posting.
My Sketchbook- C&C very welcome
Thanks for the motivation Envisor. I am following the Bridgman's Complete Guide to Drawing from Life. It is my text book for my personal art class, hehe. Here are a few more studies I did today, although I think I need to be more focused on one portion at a time, but I can't resist practicing hands, they are so hard for me.
It looks like you are making progress. Suggestion: When you are shading, try to use pencils of different hardness to achieve varying tones. You can sketch and add middle values with an HB or 2B graphite pencil, then fill in your darker values with a 4B or 6B. If you need highlights, use an eraser (kneaded erasers are my favorite) to lighten.
I think it's great to practice hands. Most people don't like hands because they are so difficult. It's good that you are taking the initiative to study something challenging.
Keep it up! See you in the NC thread!
Pay more attention to proportions before you add th detail. Think of the stick figure with a skull, ribcage and hips as a good starting point, then flesh that out.
A good basic structure goes along way towards producing good finished art, a bad base goes nowhere.
...and keep drawing!

Well I am still working hard to improve. Thanks to everyone who has commented in my sketchbook thus far. And thanks to all the other sketchbook posters out there on CA, I am learning a lot from all of you.
Hey - this just to fatten your Sb with responses since I commented in irc already - imho, the last ninja picture is the way to go. Remember, think about the gesture and movement, not contours and individual muscles. Apart from that just keep going, it seems you are on the right track. Maybe get into rendering / mass drawing a bit. You seem to be very focused on lines.
John - Thanks for the advice. I am putting it in to practice.
I need to be working on studies studies studies. No doubt. But fun sketches like these happen from time to time. Nothing great compared to other work on this site, but I like it.
