wow, that's a ton of drawings. You're definitely working hard enough, keep this up and you'll definitely improve fast. Ever think about going into animation?
I'd suggest you practice some backgrounds and work on placing figures in perspective, your characters look really appealing but sometimes they look off spatially
Great start, I can't wait to see more! And I dig the adventure time fanart.
-rinnikirun thanks! much appreciated!
-vertical I've considered it! animating looks very fun and rewarding. a lot of my favorite artists are animators, and their sketch books are phenomenal! I'm still giving thoughts about what I should major in when i get to college, so i still have a year left to decide. Thanks for the criticism as well! I'm planning to work through my entire summer to refine my skills, if you have any recommendations on resources(books, guides, etc) that would be great!. Thanks again!
-Aresa I'll research what I can before i'll buy, thanks for the recommendations!
I'll have the rest of the sketch book tomorrow C:
Posting up some old grayscale portraits I did a couple months back.
I'm going to be posting some old/new digital work here on the thread

something before finals.
Looks like you have Loomis, that should be all you need for a summer of study. There's a couple great blogs you might want to read through, Temple of the Seven Golden Camels is filled with tips and advice froom a Disney storyboard artist and Indistinguishable From Magic is written by a guy who draws an amazing webcomic called Dresden Codak and there are lots of really nice posts on design in the earlier pages.if you have any recommendations on resources(books, guides, etc) that would be great!
Also if you want to go into animation you should get Richard William's "Animator's Survival Kit" and read Preston Blair's book
Inspiring stuff, I should do my own page of faces
some color today
some more old work before I head out to school.
last of the sketch book pages
That's the end of this sketch book! I'll will be diving into more muscle/anatomy studies with various books, most likely consisting of bridgman's and loomis' books.

I've started with some Bridgman studies. I'm following someone's saying to "copy every single picture till you're able to figure out how Bridgman draws, why he puts his lines this way" etc. It is proven challenging already, but I'm getting small epiphanies already from bridgmans cover page!
Hands have proven to be my weak spot so far...
Normally I would think that's horrible advice and you should apply as well as observing since almost everyone who just copies Bridgeman's lines does so without thinking about the structure, but you seem to have avoided that and made a good attempt to figure it out, so well done! I'd suggest you definitely apply what you're learning with imagination drawings though, and keep in mind Bridgeman was a notorious drunk and his books are full of mistakes.

The studies are looking really good, keep it up!

Very cool style! its nice to see you also do some realistic stuff, the portraits are nice as well, keep it up!
