Wow, you have really been improving from those first few pictures that you have shown. I must admit I am really impressed. You are quickly picking up on your mistakes and fixing them. Keep up the excellent work, and I will be sure to keep an eye on this sketchbook

lol it would have been funnier if you put porn instead of a warning message.

hey man. got some proportions for you, i don't know if you know them already.
the figure is 7.5 heads tall. humerus is 1.5 heads, radius is 1 head, femur is 2 heads, tibia is 1.5 heads. the nostril wings line up with the inner corners of the eye. the corners of the mouth line up with the pupils of the eye. top of the ear lines up with eyebrow. bottom lines up with base of the nose. widest arm span is equal to figure's height. i think the nipples are 1 head apart.
but yeah, you're doing great. draw a bunch of circles and boxes, fill up the back of pages with them so you can get those shaped worked into muscle memory and help with coordination. life drawing of course. pay attention to foreshortening. don't pet your lines, once your pencil hits the paper don't take it off until you've drawn the curve or line you needed. Keep your lines strong and confident, trust me it helps the look of your drawings a lot. Draw what you see not what you think you see of course. Do blind contour drawings to help with hand/eye coordination. Look at the figure as a whole. Block in shapes first, then work towards details.
um thats pretty much all i got. doing some great work though. keep it up.

Keep up with those studies. I notice some of your eyes are bit stylized almost almond like. Try to imagine the eye like an orb and covered by two lids which are set in a frame, which is the skull. Keep posting
Make a sketchbook happy, feed it a tip to improve!

hey, its great to see you doing anatomy practice and such, and also that you're drawing from imagination, but i think you need to work some more on facial proportions etc, and combining imagination with reference. Often, i might take a boring reference and do something with it with my imagination, so its still making it your own, plus you can get rendering, proportion and anatomy more correct, its a good way to practice i think . your lines are also getting much better, more fluid, but i would suggest a sharper pencil, or a mechanical pencil so you dont have to bother
anyway, keep updating, itll all pay off =]

I see the evolution
It's coming together nicely Stark. I think you'd have a blast if you tried some looser medium like chalk or charcole.
Working with those will loosen your hand and will make your lines flow more freely. They are a bit messy but quick to work with and get down values and form really fast and easy.
See you in the TD's on IRC.

*exhales heavily* Ok, It's done. I'm updating this bad boy right now. I'll get to comments in a later post, but thanks for stopping by Lefran, Deadred , Addiso, BuckWeisel, Jamin, PigeonKill, etc The contents below include a quick sketch of lefran from the image in the Lounge thread, a crappy SP of myself (took me pretty fast to do it), a couple of busts and heads of various imaginative people, an arm and shoulder study from Jeno Barcsay (This is a most fascinating book, and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to work on anatomy. I also recommend Stephen R. Peck for anatomy also.) Hmm...what else...
I guess that's it. In most of these you'll see random eye/nose/mouth studies from different angles, different sizes and shapes, and a few different of things.
Have fun and PLEASE HELP ME OUT SO THAT I CAN GET BETTER.

Hey Starkface, things are looking solid. I think you could benefit from gesture studies from life. When you draw from photos, try to do value studies. Don't just go for the outline, but try to copy the values, and keep them simple.
Keep going mate!

Keep working those studies man, your getting better and better. Also really start paying attention to values!

hey stark, your lastest updates shows a more nice line control and some of the faces are better too, your taken a good direction...
i know is repetitive but when you take time to do some drawing its see the diference when you dont.
but in general you improved your work, and make a lot of drawings thats a good thing...
as always take this as a suggestion...
keep the work and have fun..
thanks for drop by in my sb, i appreciated that...i check my private messages but i dont have anything...
