    mant-raz: Thank you
    Frank Wade: Thank you
    Shinryu: Thanks Shinryu, I'll keep up with the studies ^^

    Beware, I got myself a copy of Bridgmans's Complete Guide to Drawing from Life. This book is so awesome, I love it, can't stop drawing from it. Really, I can't.

    Everything except for some hands is from Bridgman.

    Your linework is still the tops.
    I'm really digging those geishas from the last, last post.
    I want to see them in a really sweet color photoshop composition.
    and no " I have a big test" excuse this time

    Very nice SB, Olle. Your linework, grasp of form, and dynamism are excellent.

    I really think you need to start taking this to the next level. Do some freehand stuff, and get over that leg phobia...don't just end your gestural studies at the knee, maybe spend a couple pages just doing from the waist to the floor...

    Also, those lines are just begging for some coloring to make it all come together...maybe just start with some highlights and shadows, or some two or three-color tints.

    max: lol, I actually got lots of test this week (not kidding) . I'll try to get some color in there next time, I promise. Thanks for supporting me max ^^

    BludHund: Thanks BludHund. The reason it's been less freehand lately is probably this damn Bridgman book, I'm working my ass off to get through it (I've gotten two thirds now ). I'm sure it's gonna pay off in the end. More legs and color, roger that, I'll see what I can do. Thanks for stopping by

    Like I said, lots and lots of Bridgman again this week, makes this post kinda boring. I'm too lazy to post a bunch of studies again so this is all you get . A little girl scribble, no ref on that and... a bunch of Bridgmans, my desk is flowing over. xD

    Lets hope for cooler stuff next time!

    Hi Olle Werme,
    All your exercises are very good, but I like the gesture studies the best. Even from photos, one can learn alot. Keep up the pace, you're doing fine. Copying other figure studies, like Bridgeman's drawings, is a good jumping board. Eventually you'll take pieces that you like and build your own style. Copying for me, taught me much about design and the thought process behind an approach. Keep it up.

    How do you set up the watercolor papers? Looks pretty wrinkly...
    It would probably help you to tighten the anatomy, if you mirrored (or turned upside down) your drawings. Some features at times seem a bit unbalanced, and you'd likely spot those if the image was somehow flipped. Or maybe it's just a question of will to correct them...

    Oh my...

    Those are awesome studies! I like them all. Don't have crits here because I think you're studying exactly what you should be studying, so ehh keep it up?

    I do have a few questions; you get most of the poses for gestures from characterdesigns.com right? But where did you get the skull refs from? I really want to practice some of those too, so please tell me.
    And also; just to pass on the link: go to www.posemaniacs.com/blog I love the 30 second drawing there, might be nice for your gestures as well

    I'm subscribing, so expect me back soon ^^
    I'll try to be a better critter next time.
    Love
    Marleen

    EDIT: ULP! Are these A3 or A4 pages?
