And as flaskpost mentions , drawing from Life will give you a lot!
but yes, keep drawing from your imagination, the point of drawing from life is to feed your mind, you can only draw so much til' you get into some sort of circle, when you draw the same stuff over and over *like i have done unfortunly a lot.. its bad.* oh well man, it will come to you , just stay focused, and keep drawing!

Great to see you trying out the loomis stuff man! Great initiative
my advice is out don't care about the time, and just get down as many of these as you can on paper, its all about copying, till it gets stuck on your mind!
copy copy copy ! you learn quicker that way
Good start for a sketchbook man!
You're getting along nicely with the anatonmy, however, you seem to overlook poses and weight a little. So when ya do studies and figures, give pose and weight a second thought.
Pencils is way better to do studies and such with than a tablet, you've got better controll whith a pencil. A different controll over the surface then in the computer, and its always availiable for example if ya do lifedrawings.. So try that out.
Anywho, good stuff! I reckon you'll get good. Hey fun to see more Swedes pilgrim to CA!
Hey, I like your creatures and the apple you posted earlier on, very nice. Keep working with anatomy and general poses, it will help you if you do some practice on that. Also are you doing any pencil work, because its just my own opinion that working on these studies in pencil would help you more imo than on a wacom, im not saying dont use the wacom just bring in some pencil renderings, they will help nicely! Keep drawing
Hey man, its good to see your doing Loomis and Bridgman studies, knowing anatomy will really help out in the long run. If you find they get too boring sometimes, its alright to take a break and just draw whatever you want, keep the creative juices active.
