    Man... your SB is really inpiring... It got me all fueled, and that's good because I'm too lazy, I rely too much in my talent... Every advice they've given you is important and so valuable (I'll even take some of it for myself), I would loved to have something like this so early, I started drawing seriously (making studies and all that) three years ago, at 17, when I got into Design school, and just this last month I joined CA.org... before that, even if I had a good grasp of general anatomy (but somewhat too much stylized to be of any real good), my drawings lacked a lot of things...

    It's nice to see somebody who's trying hard... Keep drawing, and focus more in forms. I understand you when saying you don't want to be like a stalker (sorry if I'm paraphrasing, don't remember the exact words)... I "steal" some looks without people noticing it, I keep observing every important feature I can, how the hair of that woman shines and falls over her shouldes, the way the legs of the clerk of that store a bit shorter than the ideal, the stance of a certain child, the chubby face of a baby, the expressions, the way the light interacts with the form, try to see shapes, and forms in everything, then "RECORD" all that in your mind and then bring out a notebook or sketchbook and start putting all that fresh knowledge on paper... Drawing from life is the best but sometimes you can't do it 'cuz people looks at you like you're an stalker.

    I also love to draw from my imagination... that's one of my ways of keeping in good form. Sometimes I do some scribbles while doing studies and it becomes more entertaining.

    Hoping all this makes sense... I find it somewhat unconfortable to use english since my everyday life is in another language, but I've got the hang of it by long tedious practice, the same is with drawing... It has to become a second language for you

    Question

    IT's been a few days since my last update, mainly due to some hecticness in my life. For example weightroom , flaking on a date type of thing with a few girls, going upstate to fish and et cetera. However I am here, and holy Sh*t i have quite a few responses. I like this , it's nice to see more feedback from the CA community. So i have been reading my hogarth book more lately. I figure next update I'll have a few studies from the book. That should be pretty good. I got a 1040 combined for my reading and math SAT. Lmao that should be fine for college.
    @Pennybird Thanks
    @Grandmassaspect Thanks, humour is always needed.
    @Darkchild That is pretty much how I started drawing, besides the inane scribbles in my old grade school notebooks.
    @Hamms Yea, that hogarth book , I want to break down and know by the end of the year. That book should really help me with my poses, being able to draw deep space is quite useful for what I Draw.
    @Midkinght523 Alright sounds good.Lol.
    @Miato Yea , it does make me happy to know I do help people with the whole inspiring thing. It's all about attitude , nose to the grindstone type of deal. By the way what language do you speak?

    Hey buddy, thought I'd show some love for posting in my SB

    Okay, some advice. Hogarth is good and I'm glad you're finally tackling anatomy - I mean you've got one creative mind, but how much greater would it be if you could conceptualize your ideas and nail them perfectly on paper?

    When you're studying anatomy break each body part into small areas to study. For instance, the legs you have the thigh (above kneecap) and then the actual leg (below knee cap); same as the arm, you have the bicep area and then the wrist area. Also, try something new by drawing your arms, legs, torso, head, etc using 3D objects - cylinders, cubes, cones, you name it. I guarantee if you take this into account your art will improve quickly.

    Heya Ev,

    I can see a definite improvement in the legs already. Hogarth also has some really useful things to say about feet and hands. In fact he has a whole book on hands, which I recommend. Any fool can draw muscles, but hands and feet separate the men from the boys.

    Keep going back to Hogarth's book, bookmark the sections (I bought some sticky 'flags' from Wal-Mart, or you can get them at an office supply, anywhere there are 'post-it' notes, get the kind that have a little white space for writing on, so you can name the sections).

    Each time you go back to the book, every couple weeks or so, you'll find little bits of information or ideas that you missed before. Mix up Hogarth with Loomis, see how they take different approaches to the same thing. Use their techniques to plan out your action poses before you put in the details. Another good one to look at is Kevin Chen, who posts some stuff from his classes on this forum.

    Keep working on your line quality, I know its incredibly difficult but it PAYS OFF, I took me waaaay to long to figure that out myself. Just take your time, have an idea of what you're doing with a line before you make your mark, and practice building basic 3D shapes. If you put together some clean and convincing cylinders, egg-shapes, and 3D square shapes, you can draw ANYTHING.

    Keep it up, man.

    P.S. College? Whare?

    It's been a while...

    I have been absent from here for a long while. So to anyone who wants to still yell at me to study anatomy and real-life I'm back. What is here is composed of an attempt to return where I left off. So here goes...

    Awesome improvement I like seeimg some of your value practice stuff. I'd think it would be a good idea to study some perspective, it would help with conveying 3D forms.

    This is one helluva dump

    @MudPuppy: Yeah, there are a long list of thing that I need to study, perspective is one those things I need to tackle sooner than later. I've just been stuck on the human body for most of my life. I have been breaking down the Deep Space Work by Hogarth and along supplementing studies from other anatomy and human figure books. and they all stress working on perspective and shading in order to reach the desired effect
    Anyway here are some more studies, and some posemaniac pages, critique and what have you

    Hey m8! sorry for not dropping by your sketchbook earlier, A really good Idea for your drawing is to get a good grasp of your gesture and structural skills. Trying reading up on vilppu's drawing manual as well as watching how other animators draw(they rely on the gesture of movement heavily).

    here is a good video of a gestural process which I've learnt a lot from just from watching and studying it!
