    [I'm not ashamed of these, I'm just really tired of looking at them]

    hi there, you could start being more positive about this, don't get yourself down because you're 34, put all your energy on your drawing skills, draw every day and make it your way of life, draw wherever you go, stay focus, be happy and don't think too much about your age or whatever.
    You have a nice start, keep practicing the figure, go to life drawing classes, draw people around, draw everything you see, objects, animals, architecture, whatever, just stay focus and serious about it.
    Make sure you check loomis' books, its a great source for everything related to drawing.
    Anyways, keep posting here, show us more of your art, get involved with CA, you'll get amazing feedback.
    Cheers man

    Thanks!

    I'm not trying to be negative, I'm just very... intimidated.

    I have most of Loomis' books, I use them for anatomy reference.
    Are people really 8 heads tall though? I tried applying his proportions and my figures came out inhumanly long.

    My next stuff will be more polished, I promise.

    good start in reality, humans are about 6.5 heads but for illustration, they are portrayed as 7.5 heads, 8 heads and sometimes even 9 heads.

    but as far as being over dramatic about starting again, I got you beat

    keep at it, I doubt myself a lot but I have to stop that because it won't help me get better. Just go at your own pace and keep practicing.

    Ok, third update in as many days.

    I figure if you're going to study the human form, why not cut through the bullshit and get an anatomy textbook? So that's what I did.

    Anatomy textbooks also have nifty creepy shit like toothless baby skulls.

    Caution, boobies!  Look out, a butt!!

    Here's what I did different today.

    - For one I slowed WAY the hell down, forced myself to take my time and concentrate. No sloppy strokes, no scribbling. This is hard for poor little ADD me, but seriously looking at other people's sketchbooks I know it's important.

    - I paid more attention to my line widths. Again, no scribbling this time.

    Caution, boobies!  Look out, a butt!!

    By the time I got to the tarsles I was pretty tired of this leg.

    That 6th tendon is freaking me out. Where does it go? What does it do? You know all those ghost stories stories that end with the line "the call was coming from inside the house?" I always imagined this extra phone line running into the basement and the ghost of grandma could just talk into the end of it because ghosts are cool like that.

    Now I know I have this extra tendon leading nowhere that ANY GHOST WHO WANTS TO can talk into. Think about it. You have them too, one in each leg.

    Caution, boobies!  Look out, a butt!!

    I can't believe this turned out. At one point I had actually drawn six fingers on the right hand. Durr durr durr.

    Oh one more thing I learned today. I always assumed that a good drawing/painting looks good from beginning to end. I really hadn't thought about it.
    Haha, not so! When I started adding the muscle shading to the fingers I was sure I had ruined it and almost threw it away. But I didn't, and hey! I'm pleased with how that turned out, especially on the arm there to the right. (your right, his left.)

    Edit:
    Also I'm going to get my first tiny 6x4 Wacom pad (those are expensive on a Chinese salary ok) next week. Yay yay yay. Then there will be no excuse for me not to turn out something presentable.
