Welcome. I'm trying to learn too. Nice bridgeman studies. I tried bridgeman, but I couldn't make heads or tails of it. It's very confusing imho. doesn't help that its poorly printed.

nice start dude...just take care of proportions...cause they seem to be your major problem right now...other than that...AWESOME start
good start, looks pretty advanced to me ( I hope to be that good after my first year drawing
Welcome Wassim! (: I feel identified with this, cause I started this at 16 too, and I make a lot of Bridgman and Bargue studies, and anatomy in general, so I can't give you big advices, only, keep practicing! And your good, so keep it up (: We gonna be awesome someday
Very good start to your sketchbook. Keep on studying hard!

Sycra : thanks sycra , accualty you teach me some drawing basics
so guys , thanks alot for the comments but please i need critiques to improve my skills more and more
and here are some studies from loomis , trying to understand the anatomy of the arm because there's alot of complicated muscles around the arm espacilly forearm , i'll do some from imagination & life next time
Really nice work Wassim! I think you just hit your main problem, the crit I would have given would be work more from observation and imagination, not just the books. You need to make sure you're really analyzing and memorizing the anatomy you're drawing, not just copying Loomis' and Bridgeman's lines. Make it a goal to be able to draw these kinds of arms from any view in any position, not just the ones Loomis showed you. Other than that, just keep working on proportions and accuracy and you'll be great! Nice start, keep up the good work!
Vertical : thank you so much vertical for this helpful critique , acculaty i already trying to analyse and memorizin this stuff in my mind like villpu says ( " Never copy the model but analyze it ," - Glen Vilppu ) and next time i'll do more from imagination and i'll make sure that the proportions are right , and thanks for the drawing script in you signature
shambok : thank you shambox for the comment , i'm glad that you like my gesture drawings
So Guys , i'm really happy about your comments , and here are some drawings of today
Nice drawings for sixteen years old!
Especially your sketchbook icon looks really nice because the form of the skull is great.
Your understanding of 3d forms seems great.
I would like to see more drawings (or even paintings) from imagination.
Care or you get yourself caught into these studies.
Happened to me and i got problems with doing creative things from mind.
Hi Wassim, thanks for the nice comment in my sb. and welcome to CA sketchbook forum
You've made a really great start, the anatomy studies are looking good, and your gestures have nice form, also you're getting there with the proportions. I think the advice to draw from life is best at this point, at college we did life drawing 2-3 times a week sometimes. I you warm up with your studies like you're doing before you draw from life it will make it a easier (just a tip I've picked up)
Silwynar : thank you silwynar and i'm happy that you like my stuff
Angel Intheuk : thank u angel , in next posts i'll be doing alot of life drawing
so ,i did'nt draw too much today cause of school and some stuff, however here are more life drawings from MMA
keep up the studies am sure u will become an awesome artist
Hello wassim, nice sketchbook start you have here!
Anatomy studies are looking good. I see you working after bridgman now.
Have you thought about trying others as well? Like hogarth loomis bammes etc
I found that i can draw better heads after loomis, but limbs after bammes and so on.
See what works best for you.
Nice clean lines i see. Perhaps spend some time with a few, try to render those shapes more.
In any case, your studies are looking good and you're doing the right stuff.
Kungfoowiz : thanks man , so happy that you like my stuff
CRYPT : thanks bro , inshalah nkono m9wdine
BlackDelphin : thanks , i'll make sure to do some bammes and loomis ..studies next time
