ok well i decided, i might as well start this sketchbook off with all the old work ive never showed. I believe after this dump that is all i have to show, and after this post, it will be studies and projects from now on. I really hope you all enjoy this dump.
NOTE: some of the acrylics are still WIPs, such as the portraitskull and the red wolf.
good studies :]
I really like this one
I am fully aware that the arm study on the left is in horrible proportion, that is why I have all the notes Seeing if I can speed up my sketching time, trying to get lines right the first time, obviously I have alot of work to do with my accuracy.

Hey, I like your focus on studies. Something i could use myself again. Atm I'd just say keep it up - maybe do some studies from life in graphite, but I think you're going in the right direction.
Okay...Now I really have to buy acrylics!
Thanks...I've been using oils for studying grayscale and it just won't dry fast enough. I've read that some artist use this as a base then overlay the oils later on when finishing up. Seems like a smart process.
You are doing great studying it from real life painting experience and getting that technique digitally!
Hi I love your new sketchbook.
Really like your digital work. you are really starting to get a good feel for black and white levels. Somthing I have to work with.
The only crit I can give is that this last anatomy drawing of a right arm looks broken in some places. 1st, it looks like the upper arm is to long and it looks like the deltoid is a part of it. like it melted and is on its way down over the upper arm. 2nd, The elbow is coming out almost on the side of the arm, If you used a ref picture I would really like to se it to get a better grip on where it went wrong. It could be that the Supinator is attached a bit to far up on the humerus (upper arm bone). This might give you some advise to how its conected Supinator
Its a nice start, I like the fact that your trying to learn advanced anatomy. most Anatomy studies that are common in art is propotional anatomy drawing, like, how the the human shapes look. how the shapes move and interact with each other. But your going "dr latin" style on the subject. BTW I'm not that good with the names for the bones and muscels, I get a lot of help from my girlfriend hwo is studying medical anatomy. Im more the kind that want to know how shapes look and how the body works. you got a nice SB and I'll be back to check your udates. I hope this has been helpful in some way.
ok, i havent updated in over a month, havent really been drawing.... but i started kickin my own ass. no traditional updates caus my scanner is down again, but heres a page of heads that i just did, gestural bodies soon, and more heads, next time with ref. When i do get my scanner up I bought a new 4x5 sketchbook that im drawin lots in so ill scan that.... Thanks for all the crits.
hey nice start...all is looking good...just keep studying all the stuff your studying now...Id suggest working on your highlights in the digital stuff...keep it up
ok so heres a 2 min sketch before work, im tryin to get down a good simple sketchin process that allows me to be quick and loose, so i can spend more time on rendering, while being acurate with the linework...
if you can please comment on my last post i would be very grateful.
cyas when i get back from work
The studies are good and show nice improvement. Keep going with them and continue to suppliment your digital work with traditional medium. You might want to try adding more water to your acrylics or try guache. That way you can have a little more flexability.
