On the one with the 3 skeletons...The skull of the dude on the right doesn't look quite right. Draw and post more stuff.
yes yes more studies! good start your doing the right thing. just keep drawing, its the best practice
i'd like to see you post a full body. but looking good.
squidmon3j - yes, i've been following the Structure of Man series. It's a really great ressource.
styler - ya, i see what you mean.
Don-key - yeah, more are one the way..! : D
Abdiel_lara - thanks, i will soon!

Double post ><
your line weight could vary a little more on these. The top two on #1 are fairly consistant near the neck. The eyes on the bottom image could be slightly darker. (...well the right eye). Good studies though...keep up the good work.
nice to see you getting right into it. try and use a ruler when you do the ones that are supposed to match up, all the little details will come together much better. great start, welcome to the group.
Your last head, watch the eyes. they, are, OFF.
next time you do a head try to imagine what it looks like and if you cant, go study anatomy
Drawing Since 29/11/06
Undergoing Massive Practice
Styler & Pistol - hehe, i see what you mean
kawakaze - So i did, thanks for the advice..!
I haven't uploaded anything for days now, but not to worry, i've been drawing alot. Heads and torso mostly, and i drew portraits of my parents.
I've been doing some anatomy studies, so i wanted to get a better grip on the skeleton. Hehe, i might have used too much time on it, to actually remember the bits and pieces in perspective, but ohwell.
Since i've been drawing so much, i wanted to get some different pencils and a sketchbook, so i was all bigspender today, and went and bought some. My first try at shadowing, did these two tonight, done from other drawings:

the lips and nose do not seem to go together properly on the 1st face.
styler - yeah, perhaps the ditch between the lips and nose should have been on a slightly more horizontal angle. Thanks.
Just finished this one
It looks good but something on the nose doesn't seem quite right. It might just be me though.
in terms of basic proportions for the face it looks pretty on point to me, i think its hard to judge because you only have the surface shapes blocked in and not filled in with value yet. the nose is quite big in a few of your post and in the last one u have really pronounced that nose bone but that doesnt mean that its necessarily off. one thing i do see with your last few updates is that you have trouble connecting the frontal part of the skull (the face) with the rest of it. the part where you would imagine the skull to be seems a little stretched like typical alien proportion. awsome updates though, next time try and post one that you have fully rendered. its great that you do so many studies but try and focus on doing one from start to finish, i should do the same.
Hey man, I think your on the right lines for starting off, learning proportions/muscles of the human body. Try to mix do some life drawing studies too because humans have alot of variety, whether they be fat, thin, short or tall, this will get you used to different people rather than the generic human figure. Your doing good though starting off with the foundation of the figure.
Oh btw you shouldnt worry how long it takes you to learn certain things, time isnt wasted if its used. Proportions etc are bloody hard to remember anyway.
I have been drawing and painting on and off since my last post, here is a few sketches, all from reference. I am going to paint and update more often from now.
First the new stuff, a selfportrait from mirror i did today:
And now some older studies , 1-1½ year ago:
Some drawings of my brother sleeping, also 1-1½ year old:
And 1 of my cousin:
Did som studies today, so everything is from reference.
Heads and eyes:
Since last update..
