    so here are some of week 2's sketch book pages. wanted to do more studys on the female figure. and will continue to work on my anatomy, maybe this next week ill have both male and female figures, so i can see the differences in weight of line and style. most of these sketches are are from photo ref.

    Nice sketches overall.

    Nice rendering of the ninja looking guy cant wait to see it finished.

    You just need to sketch more women to get the anatomy right, and also work more on drawing heads.

    Keep it up.

    here are a bunch more head studies. quick ones at that. nothing special.
    just trying to get the angles on the face correct. i didnt want to spend a lot of time refining them, just wanted to get the angle down
    i think i accomplished it on some of them. will have to do more. i did 10 pages but here are some of the good and bad
    so these are going to be a little out of order. and remember they range from like 30 sec. to maybe 4 mins on the more refined.
    the purpose of this exercise was to get faster at faces, cuz when i render projects it takes awhile, ends up looking good but i want to get faster.

    and here is a quick paint i did in about 15 mins, maybe a little more, trying not to use line at all. i know it does look a little blurry, but the effect i was going for was air brush, even if its an over done style.

    here are some stronger pieces from the group. i enjoy spending more time on some of my sketches but my goal is to not spend that much time.

    re

    I like your gestures the best, they flow and have a lot of action. I notice some of your face construction is a bit on the long side. Tighten up those lines and study some skulls for fun. I liked how you add details in your character with all the tight armor.

    To answer your question on the some materials I used. For the textured paper it's: Earthbound recycled sketchbook by Cachet, 80 sheets 70 lbs, for around $13 USD at Utrecht. I used Prismcolor Turquoise pencils. Hope this helps.

    Keep posting.

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

    Some cool drawings in here, I like doing little figures like how you did up near the top... Fun to play around with different poses like that.
