    Nice, very nice. As kostas said, don't mind the paper, just draw. Then you will see how the studies will pay off. Keep up and take care.

    yeah great amount of studies and very great linework, one thing that ive noticed while brwosing through this thread is that your linework seemstobe much more developedthan your useof color, i was wondering why there are so few color studies in this thread, are youre doing like "first focussing on lines, then focussing on color" or is linework just more fun at themoment

    welli hope you dont get me wrong,my english is not the best, i dontmean that your colors are weak, they are cool, but compared to your very strong linework it might look a little weak

    i dont know if your doing plein air studies butif not i would encourage you to try it out - it helped me very much!

    There we go, some of the poses have a lot more action going. Those are great ta chi poses and you capture the graceful gestures.

    Here's an interesting link to some models in costume.

    Mr.Pryminista Thanks for sharing the reference.

    Make a sketchbook happy, feed it a tip to improve!

    "first focussing on lines, then focussing on color". Plus, generally, form interests me more than other things,
    and I have an obsession with needing to understand things. You English is fine, you just need to make sure
    you have spaces between your words Plein Air...now thats hardcore, so many things are out of your control!
    Maybe I need something like that, dunno.

    Thanks. Yeah, charactermodels is pretty good quality photography, unfortunately not a lot of 'normal clothing'
    so to speak. LOL. But they do have some good drapery in there occasionally.

    Jason Scanlon -

    Thanks. Its a pretty good setup. Weekly, cheap, the models are almost all very good. Hard to believe its in Baltimore

    ---

    Just spitting something out for tonight. Some skulls from imagination (okay I glanced over at my model every
    now and then ). Pretty rusty on the rigorous form. Mainly gotta stay calm and focused.

    More spam. Pretty sloppy/rusty. I think it they tell some stories, though.

    Still trying to do some drapery from imagination. A little disconcerted to find that the waxy non-photo pencil I'm using can stop my ink from laying down properly. Oh well...technical difficulties I can handle...

    and this. More focused, more relaxed, a better result, I think.

    Good gesture drill work. I would recommend taking a few all the way to finish. It is one of those "works for me" words of advice. I find taking a gesture from the building blocks to the full dynamic render in my mind helps me make use of drills.

    There's no point in me trying to critique anything, so i'll just resume my comment in telling you how awesome you are, and that your drapery thumbs are really interesting.

    You can take bits and pieces from all the well-knowns, Hogarth, Bridgman, Vilppu, Reilly. I recently checked out Loomis' Fun With A Pencil, I think that may be better than his "Drawing the Head and Hands". My current approach is a little Reilly lines and Loomis structure with a whole lotta observation from ref (proportions especially).

    Yeah, I hear GirlFriendShop is pretty nice, if you can figure out the interface

    Im really liking the last 2 heads in post 383 very clean and it seems like the planes were handled very nicely much better than I can do =P. One thing I think you're doing too much (at least lately) is only doing 3/4 view until you have a live model, maybe try different views from imagination with the same technique you use to construct the heads from 3/4 and see how successful those are. Otherwise keep on drawing cuz these are awesome.

    Check out my sketchbook and comment/crit while you're there =)
