Which are you referring to. If it's the sketch stuff, then straight off the dome my friend, The gestures are posemaniacs.
I can see the improvement in your anatomy from your most recent piece! Keep up the gestures and observational anatomy studies, you're doing great!
Keep going man! Don't stop. Just here to say that.

Finally! The last sketch is cool, a little bit too stylized for me (you want to draw comics?). It shows strength and dynamic.
I think if you would bend the head toward the ground, there would be more tension in the sketch, like I'm-so-powerful-I-have-to-focus-on-my-powers-then-release-them-in-a-havoc-wreaking-blast.
I don't KNOW that I want to do comics, that's just the trajectory I'm on. This was a 30 min sketch, not time for rendering (at my speed). And I'll have to remember that little pose tidbit.
124 hours in, sweet.
And a page I'm working on.
Cool, cool, cool! Like them all.
Don't know what to say, so: Keep it up, do more, study more, MOAR!
Whoa, IMPROVEMENT! Keep it up!
The official count is about 155h and 26m of drawing. What have I been doing so far?
Well, being out of school and barely employed, I find myself with a lot of free time. Time enough to start the book Nicolaides' "The Natural way to draw". Which is basically a years worth of study for the autodidact. I've started on monday, racking up 18 hours of drawing (more than I've ever done in school). The beginning had me doing gestures and contour drawing, there isn't much in the way of studies to show off, though the sheer output I've had is pleasing enough (I've since chewed through two 100 page sketchbooks).
Great updates! The comic figures are improving, keep it up!
197 hours in, the peak is long and far away.
So continuing with "The Natural Way to Draw", still pumping out hundreds of gestures. One of the other assignments include "Modeled" drawing. it's a kind of contour drawing. Here's a few recent ones.
Hey, you're 2.5% of the way there! That's pretty awesome when you think about it!
I'd suggest that you do more drawing from life and also practice your perspective a lot with simple shapes (cubes etc.) it'll really help with your foreshortening when drawing from your imagination.
I'm seeing definite improvement here though, don't stop!
thanks for the advice a year ago I read through the loomis a few times need to a few more though. Can I study a little on you & your friends artwork & style for more poses & an even larger amount of knowledge? also do you know anymore good books to learn from beside loomis?
I wouldn't however, studying from me. Maybe Empyrean, as he's much more prolific than I at the moment.
And books really don't matter, specifically. You can learn from anything. Is there anything specifically you want to know?
glad to be of help. I might start studying fantasy based or medieval type stuff so I can have more of a handle on more imaginary/creative art in a way.
