Hi everyone, I'm a long time lurker here at conceptart who finally gathered enough courage to post. Here I'm starting a sketchbook to encourage myself to draw regulary and improve my technique. I should be able to update atleast once in a week or so. Critiques are welcome!

First some head studies and a gigantic rabbit to keep me working.
Welcome to CA, looks like you have a good stand on your anatomy, so no recommendations for books. Thses look great, just keep studying those books you already have. You've got a nice comic style from what I see, would like to see some fully rendered pics, cant wait for more. Keep posting.
My Sketchbook- C&C very welcome
one thing to say EVIL they look like zombies specially the guy that is looking at me right now . and the bunny to anime'ish transform and kill you while smiling look going on but still nice start now try a less psychitic bunny shall we cuz that thing is freaking me the hell out
Ev'sSketchbook for the lazy minded but willing!
Help an artist, leave a critique.
I'm not very good at drawing hands so I made som hand studies.
Studying muscles and som fat on the male torso.
Some feet and legs with one of my favourite movie characters The chainsaw and hands turned out a little wierd though...

Thanks for looking at my sketchbook! really like the hand studies, and Envisor is right, you've got your anatomy sorted. can we see an action scene? pretty please? with sprinkles..and..um..other stuff(not entirely sure what other confectionary goes well with please)
Thanks everyone for your comments. It keeps me drawing and helps me improve. Sorry cherryworx for not posting any action scenes this time Guess I'm just not confident enough. But all things come to he who waits
Here's a study on the female torso (I'm not very experienced at drawing dames) and an undead SS-officer

Your studies are doing great, just draw as much as you can everyday. Keep up the good work.
favorites are the hand studies in the last posts.
My Sketchbook- C&C very welcome
Thanks for your comments, I'm gonna follow mull77's advice and do more studies. Here are some random ones:
I havn't been able to draw anything satisfying lately. I havn't had much motivation or energy and my content for drawing is waning. I will keep on drawing and hope that the motivation soon will return Here's some quick studies.
You have a pretty good sense of dynamic action, and a better understanding of small detail than me!
Keep up the studies and don't let artists block leave your paper blank!
Its a good thing u have started with anatomy studies!
But i think u need to concentrate more on the constructive aspect of the body forst of all.Even though it is "boring" once u have mastered that u can concentrate on more fun stuff!
These sketches show that u have a good eye for drawing muscles tho!
Keep up the drawing
thanks for viewing!
i like the giant bunny... keep it up.
Today I really tried to do some anatomy studies on various body parts (drawing the skeleton, muscles etc.) but they turned out really bad. Guess I'll try those "boring things" some other time Eh... here's som heads.
Thanks for the comment, Envisor. Your work gets better and better!
Here's some facial details and a warped skull
Sorry about the double post, forgot to add the pic.
Haha, I love that giant bunny.
It's awesome that you do this many studies, but as alert said, you should focus a bit more on the constructive aspect. You seem to have some trouble with joints. Like the hips and shoulders.
But keep working. It's clear that you have a lot of potential.
Thanks for your comment, Hai. I'll always thought my joints looked kind of wierd but I never really thought about it for to long. Thanks for pointing it out! I drew some shoulders today and some muscles.
nice stuff, loving the zombie general guy ^^
I know it's not exactly the most important part of the human body, I'd be interested in seeing you try some hair studies.
Ok, I haven't posted in a while now, sorry about that. I'll try harder from now on
Andre3es - I always had trouble with hair so I definately need to do some hair studies but right now I feel I need to concentrate on the human body. I'll try some hair soon though
Thanks for checking out my sketchbook! L:ike already mentioned, you've got a good intial grasp of poses. Try and keep your pencil marks to one single line, as Marko says...if you learn to draw with a single line you will learn more from the process than using lots of lines. This method forces you to study the chosen area harder. Thanks and keep posting!
Thanks for your comments, people! I've become found of Loomis' books and finally got to do some of the necessary stuff.
Some studies of the muscles in the arm:
Anothar small update (sorry 'bout that). Don't have the motivation to draw that much right now. I'll try to make a somewhat larger update next time
