Hello, everyone. I have been lurking here for a while now, and I finally decided to post some of my work. I just graduated from SCAD (3D major) and I feel like I've neglected my 2d skills way too much. I've been drawing every day for a few weeks now, off and on before that. Mostly I'm trying to learn anatomy, and to try to draw more volumetrically. Most of the time I end up drawing front and profile faces, very flat looking. Here are some of the better sketches I've done lately. I will post more as I draw it in hopes of finding some guidance here.
I think I do pretty well when drawing from life or with other reference, but when I try to draw from imagination I get very frustrated.
Oh, and it almost goes without saying, but I was inspired to do this my the amazing feats of MindcandyMan and Android, proving that there really IS time enough in every day to draw.

your hands and feet are really good. you might want to practice face drawing to get proportions down and all i can say is draw draw draw. this is what im currently learning. the more you do the better! keep it up!
Well here is what I drew today. Man, I have to start using pen more because the ones in pencil don't show up well in the digital pictures. maybe I just need better lighting. Anyway, I wanted to start concentrating on actually putting clothing on my figures... and details and accessories. I always just draw nudes and musclemen. Anyway:
Here are some more sketches that I did today. I was thinking maybe I should have made this thread in the sketchbook section...that's basically what it is, just my sketchbook online. anyway...see you tomorrow.
Here's another self portrait I did. I tried to emulate Androids rushed-looking, odd colored style on some of his SPODs. I think maybe I should have sketched it first, but this time I tried just painting from the beginning and picking all my own colors.
hey, thanks a lot for commenting amphex. Ya, I figured as much... that portrait came out too good, too easily. And I don't think I learned much from it. Today I did one with no reference, and only one color (basically greyscale but more fun).
here's the DSG I did today. It's the first one I've done because I'm usually afraid mine will suck. So I was right. Maybe more thought in the design would help. I tried to make it look like you're lookin up at him from below and the light is coming from above.
Oh, and I found a life drawing session in my hometown every tues and thurs. YAY! finally. So I'll be posting what I draw there as well, either late tonight or tomorrow.
