Really cool. You have a great eye for depth and perspective. What time period do these sketches cover (I.E. are these your doodles from over the course of a month, or over a year)? And at the end of your first block of sketches, I noticed that you were drawing block bodies and legs. Is this an established technique, practice method, or just you doodling?
There's no toilet paper! I like the humor, made me laugh
You've inspired me to start my own sketchbook on here!
Thanx everyone for your kind comments.
Decided it's time to stop being a racist-pirate-politician-rabbi and be an artist again.
@SuperDooperDoodleMan : I post whenever I feel like I want to or the stuff is at least entertaining. My drawing and studying are mostly real sloppy and messy repettative and boring so I won't post all of it.

keep it up with the sketches and art though,
not that that's all that really counts, but, y'know, if you wanna be an artist and not a writer, results plz!
I noticed the Bridgeman sketches. I like these because you are letting your hand and mind work together to develop control and technique. Your sketch book is supposed to be free flowing and fun and these are. I feel that if you keep drawing and you will do very well.
you really have a big amount of Passion to learn and also your imagination is crazy, i loved your lady horse.haha
Keep up your great work
Good going, here. Your master copies and invented skeletons will go a long way to drawing the fig in confidence. Keep it up.
I came here because of all your crazy comments elsewhere. You learn haphazardly, the way you want and what you need. Also you have have loads of fun in doing it. Fantastic! You might not get there the quickest way (do not pass go and collect $200), but I always think learning should be fun as well. Without fun we are a drudge. Teaching to make the most mundane task fun should be on top of the list.
Love the skeletons.
Thanx everyone, didn't think a dead scetchbook would get that much encouragement.
Decided to post some junk.
Got some tip somewhere to draw clay for practice.
Finally committing to a mannakin, kinda.
Started abusing posemaniacs.
Ostrich "bird" is fun. I like the manikin studies - must dig mine out of the attic.
Yes, The wooden mannakins we have here are real crap though, their movement are limited. I just drew a mannakin shape from imagination, not perfect yet but much better.
Thanx for the heads up and dropping by.
Thanx, yes, that can be alot of fun.
Thanx man. Thanx for dropping in.
Some junk to waste internet space:
Drawing some of my boy's toys:
Some Studies on my 10month old boy:
Some stuffs from my small secret scetch book.....
Nice studies you got going here, keep at it!
kidult: Thanx man.
Black Spot: Thanx again Black Spot and checking up on me.
Did some copies from Gottlieb's anatomy book with hopes to get some more understandings to start developing. I like the man's drawings, they teach more by just looking than any other scetches I have seen.
The dude's renderings are really 3D even in the most profile drawings his stuff forces you to see depth and space. Too bad I suck so much at the moment to do the same with my rendering.
Once again ... some awesome studies. Dig that you do them in pen ... shows real confidence Cant wait to see the next update.
I have anatomy studies planned ... just need to find some time for that. thought it would be tonight but it turns out I have to do some work
lot of stuff here, it's good, go on with practicing
It seem you don't draw a lot from mind, do it, indeed it's the best way to improve and to find what are your weaknesses (and therefore studying it)
also be carrefull on proportions, eg legs are sometimes short ( as in the posemaniacs figures)
Thanks for stopping by my SB!
Looks like you are studying the right things, just more ,more more
I really like the progression in your sketchbook. This is what a sketchbook should be, in my mind. I can only imagine what you will be pushing out over the next months. Keep at it, it's really inspiring-makes me want to start my own sketchbook thread. So if you see a sketchbook by klaw, you made that happen. Your art just changed the world. Whaddya think about THAT?
Your on the right track. The problem I see you having is with stiffness. No offense but your sketches are a little uptight. I'd recommend Loomis's Fun With a Pencil.
One feature I keep seeing problems is lips. You tend to make them too small and over emphasize them. Less is more on the subject of lips. It's a common mistake to observe them closely and miss how they actually read in the big picture.
Shot Shambok. It's a little like hairday's though.
Thanx for the reminders man.
Thanx dude, There will be plenty of studying.
I would be honoured to visit. You go dude.
Thanx for the advice Raoul, somehow think stiffness is the word I have been looking for wid dem lips.
Starting to pick around with Grapy Draprey Gravey:
Playing with feetz and legz:
Studies mixed with random crap:

Keep it up! Also, take the time to practice your line quality a bit as you do these!
Gee those last legs are short. I can see where you're having fun drawing and when you think you have to knuckle down an do some studies. The studies are having an effect on the fun stuff in a good way. Somehow you're getting the balance right. Now I want to see some fun short dwarfs.
