    You're definitely going where you need to go with the drawing things in a simplified, basic-shape form.

    I would highly recommend pulling out an anatomy book, and drawing the skull over and over again. You can follow some simple guides to place everything right, but it will help with the understanding of what is really going on underneath the skin.

    I would recommend, Artistic Anatomy by Richer and Hale, Atlas of Human Anatomy for the Artist by Peck, and the expensive but well worth it Anatomy for the Artist by Simbley.

    Also check out this book: Facial Expresions by Simon.

    All the links are Amazon, but you can go where-ever.

    Keep up the good work!

    Beonarri, wow, thats quite a list. thanks! I apreciate the effort you took. I already have access to several anatomy books so i`ll stick with those for now. I looked around and the faces book you talked about. I`ll suggest it to my academy`s library. tnx!

    Pradip, tnx mate! Its draw or die indeed.

    I`ve been busy with construction in the most literal sense of the word. Sculpting some basic heads to draw from all sides.

    I still gotta figure out how to build a really good one proportionally.
    i LOVE doing this. So forgiving, so direct.

    That's actually a really good idea.

    You should try to build a skull, then throw some muscle on it.

    In my anatomy class in college, we had to do this for the whole skeleton.
    I helped in understanding the forms...to an extent. I won't get into here.

    But, for the face, that would definitely help.

    Good idea to create a solid version of the head studies. I think that in this manner you can see with more attention the construction forms for drawing.
    ciao

    Beonarri, I`l definatly will look into the skull idea. Also it helps with form a lot. Heck Im even gonna use it for char. research n design. You did the whole skeleton? omg dude!
    Dreamworker, I agree, its encouraging to see you like this experiment, I wasnt sure at the start of it.
    rblitz7, tnx for stopping by, i really like what you`re doing in your sb.

    Gonna try to color it.

    ehehe The first image seem an old Italian comic ( Tot&#242; )
    The study are good beginning, but I think that the lower art of the uman skeleton are too short, instead the cat is good.
    Keet it up, cheers

    solid studies going on here, seems like you are very determend, and as long as you are you can get anywhere you want to
    I would recommend doing daily SPs, its probobly the most valuable routine for any beginners.

    Anyway, keep this hard work up man!
