hey man, thanks for dropping by my sketchbook again!
so i see you got some new stuff, and they're not bad as far as things go, but i think you might have made a mistake here; one of your hands have only 3 fingers and a thumb :p
wonder why noone else mentioned it lol.
Right you are, couchPotato, but it was intentional (silly, I know ). I was just fooling around and made a semi-human hand. Anyhow, thanks for pointing out stuff like that.
Here's some muscle studies:
Some random stuff I did today:
nice studies, for critics i would work on your lines. tip: ghost the pencil movement of the line in your head, before actually executing the line you want to hit. and always think of stuff in dimension. but i guess you have more muscles knowledge then me so respect!!!
Your studies are awesome! The "random stuff" reminded me that I need to work on some lighting/shading.
Thanks for your advice Gosu!
Glad I could help you some way, Kat
Two creature concepts:
These massive herbivores walk the steppes in flocks eating plants and grass most of the day. Unless provoked they are peaceful although they can get very aggressive when protecting their young.
Size: ca. 2000 kg (ca. 4409 pounds)
These animals dig tunnels in the ground for shelter and food. They are omnivores and mostly eat roots, fruit and small animals. They pose a medium threat to humans as they can be very aggressive if a human comes near their lair or a very hungry rootdrake.
Size: ca. 200 kg (ca. 441 pounds)
Habitat: Steppes and deserts.
Well, if the hand fingers are intentional, then it's my bad haha. No offense intended dude.
Anyhow, your Bardodont reminds me of the extinct Giant American Sloth. Is that your inspiration?
hey zombie, ur studies lookin good and u have some nice ideas in ur head
just try to bring some more grey tones on page and try to realy see the way of ur line in mind so that the pencil can flow
No offense taken, Couchpotato The Bardodont is inspired by some extint two-horned rhinoceros. Looked up that sloth, looks kinda familiar though.
Sorry to dissapoint you Envisor but I won't be doing anything that serious for a while. Gonna practice on my lines though.
Thanks, geizler. I'll try to do better lines and get more values in my sketches.
Here's a failed attempt at shading and a fetus
Here's some studies from a new anatomy book I got.
Some noses I did today.
its nice to see that you are drawing regularly, when you draw it helps if you do alot of very light scribbles to get the forms you want, dont be afraid to get messy. then draw some hard, defined lines on top of that, also draw more
Thanks for you comment, Myalias! I'll try to do as you suggested. I know I need to work on my lines. I'm afriad these last sketches aren't any better
Good to see you keep going man. I don't often see you do whole bodies though, you gonna try some of that anytime soon?
nice nose and faces studies you can already see the improvement from the first page.
It's been a while! Nice updates, man. Your progress is amazing! Keep it up.
Thanks for your posts, people. I haven't updated my sketchbook for a while now because of some personal matters. Anyhow, here's some recent sketches. I might just aswell have erased some of them but I suppose I should show some my really bad stuff too

Getting better and better, especially on line quality but on proportion as well. Studies are doing great as usual. Last post I like the ear and the back studies. Hope everything is well in your personal life. Keep it up.
Thanks for your concern, Envisor. Things are better now.
I really agree with you on the faces, Rhineville. The head and face is (to me) the most important thing on the human body. I really should get better at drawing them. I'll start now and post some later tonight or tomorrow. Untill then, some random crap:
Ok, I know I was going to do lots of head and face studies for today but I got to lazy so here's what I've done: just three of 'em.

Keep it up with the studies, you're making progress.
Thanks for replying in my sketchbook, let met return the favor.
It's good to see that your very enthousastic to do anatomy studies. I have periods of doing them but you seem to work very seriously on them.
Great studies.. A strong desire to learn the basics.. You will be well rewarded in the long term.. Loomis is awesome for study..Life is better.
like how you dedicate to each part for further understanding. keep posting dude. thanks for dropping in. ;-)
Check my sketchbook if you're bored
And my blog!
Well, I haven't drawn that much lately and I don't have that much to give now either. I did my first life drawing/portrait today Didn't turn out very good though. This is a friend of mine and trust me, in reality she's young and alot prettier than this but I did what I could Anyhow, here it is:
Ps. thanks for all your comments, really appreciate it
Hey thanks man for stopping by..proably one of the fastest comments I've recieved after updating...made my day since I'm still on, I figured I'd respond. ...your sketchbook is looking nice...those studies are coming along well... do you mind me asking where you get the poses for you anatomy studies from...I work from a book with limited illustrations so mine seem to be very upfront and stationary...would love to try some of the ones you have going on....anyway doing good...keep doing what your are and you'll progress fast.
Hey dude thanks for the comment in my sketchbook! Your studies are looking great keep working them --- maybe also try doing some studies of the full skeleton frame... just a suggestion.
And don't forget to experiment when you feel like it!!
I think in essense it works like this: the more you draw the faster you progress. you definitely got the basics of anatomy --- go draw !
---:::the eye of the beholder:::---
Thanks for all the kind words! I haven't been able to draw much lateley since I have alot to do right now but in a few weeks I will be able to update more often.
Gspot, I use a variety of books but the ones I'm most frequently use now are some Loomis books (don't remember where I downloaded those, sorry), Figure Drawing by Ron Tiner and a book by Daniel Carter and Michael Courtney.
Here's a little thing I drew today:
