    Hey what's up man? I really dig this one

    and that last one of Tom Waits is looking pretty good. Your shading is looking pretty good too. If you're trying to crosshatch- the trick is to just do lots of it. Put down enough washes and it'll start to look nice and uniform.

    thanks a lot! in fact i think im way too unpatient, because just every 4 or 5 days i can force myself to keep working on one drawing until its like those you can see up there

    Hey man, some nice progression just in this one page.

    Just some ideas for you to think about; I noticed a few experiments with more values and variety in linewidth but I think you'd really enjoy taking that further. Get yourself some darker pencils and use them to accenuate your lines more, don't do it arbitrarily of course - think about why something should be darker and why something should be lighter. Perhaps things "closer" to us could be darker, adding depth. Or edges with more contrast of course could be darker. Experiment and go nuts - I know it's hard to focus on little things like that instead of the "fun" parts but it will become natural and more fun in the long run.

    Cheers!

    hey man, thanks for your kind words. You mentioned that you were feeling discouraged earlier in your thread. . .honestly you shouldn't be; you're definately going in the right directions here man. If I had one suggestion, it would be to really try to see form when you study anatomy (and yes, for figure drawing from the imagination, it's absolutely essential to study it). . .I'm sure you've seen loomis' books, perhaps also kevin chen's work. . .experiment with cross-contour lines when you're constructing these things. . .try building a torso inside a box. . .all that stuff. It'll help tremendously.

    excellent studies and good luck!
