    Glad to break the habbit of drawing those anime pictures and grabbing a hold of life drawing and gotta say im loving it.

    happened while i was practicing with the mannikin from Loomis figure drawing book, really liked the way it came out but shows room for a whole lot of improvement.

    Welcome to the forum Katalyst!
    You're definitely on the right path, keep studying Loomis and maybe check out Hogarth's Dynamic Figure Drawing. His drawings aren't all completely correct in terms of anatomy, but his method of constructing the figure and giving it life can be a great help as it was for me.

    Hey, I, too, had to break away from the anime style. Very fun, but not needed right now. Anyway, some useful book recommendations that were given to me are "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain" by Betty Edwards, "The Natural Way to Draw" by Kimon Nicolaides, the Andrew Loomis books, and any book by George Bridgeman. These are helping me immensely and are constantly recommended to new artists, so I hope you'll take a look into them.

    Chris- thanks for the welcome. i'll definately try and grab a hogarth book soon hopefully i can find a really cheap one on the net. But i'll definately grab one soon.

    MaeAshley- Thanks for the book recommendations, i've had The Natural Way to Draw" by Kimon Nicolaides, i just started and those 3 hour practices help me get motivated to draw almost 5 to 6 hours everyday. And i will grab your other book recommendations a soon as possible.

    That skull study has promise. Nice value identity.
