    Some attempts at drawing Clint Eastwood, i am so bad at faces, I lost my nack for them.

    I think during my senior year at school, i got more concerned with speed thatn quality, so i lost alot of my skills at shading and details becuase of not practicing them.

    During my Visual Language class we were discussing some photographs taken by my fellow students and a silhoutte (spelling? haha) stood out to me, added a hand, some wierd quote from our discussion as well.

    'It is being uneducated, art makes culture and culture is the most important thing in the world." somthing like that, we talk fast haha.

    Due to my dissatisfaction of my clint eastwood attempts, i followed them up with a study on the structure of the head, found a nice page and followed it, i think it may have helped a bit.

    K Cool, i took some photos of my bigger sketches ( done on newsprint) from my drawing class.

    Here is the first classes work, atleast my better stuff, would it be useful if i posted everything so you can see what my bad shtuff is? i think that would make it easier to crit.

    This is also my first ever figure drawing class, i have never had a model before ;x

    but i liked it!

    Hey jdeegz, thanks for stopping by my book. I can see some improvement already in this short time. Keep up the figure drawing, it's the best way to improve. If you want some good ideas/anatomy to help your figures, try out Bridgeman's Complete Guide to Drawing From Life, or Andrew Loomis' books. Bridgeman should be easy to find, and loomis can be found online. Always make sure to break things into simple shapes when drawing, and focus on proportion and accuracy before doing detail (such as the contour or value). I look forward to seeing your progress! Keep it up.

    The faces are looking good. Torso looks too stylized. You should know the ribcage and pelvis (or at least simplified versions for now) and how the muscles lay on top of them like fleshy drapery. With regards to hands, try to learn the anatomy and construct from simple shapes, although it mostly just takes doing them over and over.

    About the camera, you just have to get better at taking the pictures, and try to have as much light as possible (sunlight, lamps, flash from camera). That's the only way i can figure out. Still usually takes messing around in PS.

    Keep it daily, thats the best way to improve.

    Hey, i got these books, Bridgman's Complete Guide to Drawing From Life, and Loomis' Figure Drawing for All it's Worth. These two books are awesome, thank you so much for reccommending them.

    i did a few Loomis works. the first one i copied and and practiced, the 2nd is all form my mind except for the figure on the left. i love this way of drawing the human form its really effective of showing motion and balance.

    I'm trying to get my pencil strokes to be more fluent instead of what loomis says as "Petting" the lines which i am used to doing.

    What's up jDeegz
    Thanks for visiting my sketchbook!
    You're coming along quite nicely, it seems. Keep it up. Draw lots of live people! It's ridiculously helpful, and it never stops being a goo idea.
    I especially like that one face near the top, right under that chick's portrait sketch, that's all grainy and robert-crumb-ish in style. I'd like to see it up close, actually.
    oh, here's my sketchbook.

    Also, my website. It would get beat up in a fight.
