This sketchbook is here for me to work on my sketches of ladies. It will focus mainly on the pinup style i think, but we'll see what happens. It is definitely here for me to improve at drawing girls though, as i currently suck at drawing ladies and need to get better as of the day of posting.

And another, from a photo/imagination. Used the photo to rough in a pose then filled in the blanks from the imagination.
And yet another. Im not trying to bump my thread, just posting as i go.

These look great, I like the use of shapes. Just wondering what program you're using to do these?
*In all chaos there is cosmos. In all disorder a secret order*
Here's another. I spent a little bit longer on this one. I think my problem is coming up with the poses without looking at reference at the moment. i spent about 5 minutes roughing in the legs and the culo from a photo then deleted the photo out and spent the rest of my time trying to come up with it out of my head.
nice culo! the last one the coloring is good but i think the hair is too bright for the rest of it
Another very quick one, just getting in the habit of doing these.
Thanks for all the comments guys! here's another update, the face could be better... still working on those. Anyway here it is.
been a long time... need to be more dedicated. These are all from random ref of ladies. Building up to being independent of reference... but until then, i grind.
Thx very much towy! hopefully i'll update this more often. I just recently abandoned it for nearly a year... lets hope i keep up with it. Here's another page of study from random ref.
Im bad at coming up with poses so hopefully drawing random nudes found on the net will help a bit with that. Figure drawing is out of the question at the moment so that's all i got. At any rate, here's another sketchy page:
I can see quite some improvement since the first pose. If you want to draw beautiful women make sure you master proportions especially the head since that seems to be a weak spot right now. Focus more on the shape of the skull before you rush in and put features. If you wanna get good at coming up with poses, draw and observe people on the street a lot. Keep it up!
The page of girls you just posted shows a lot of improvement from your last page. A lot more structure in the recent one. Keep going, you're on the right track!
Ana Diella - thanks a bunch! that site is great. if you come across any more good pinup pages, do share!
Towy-thanks! i'll keep at it
Fantasyartist- thx, i'll pay attention to that more. I think the problem is definitely rushing. Im more trying to focus on overall proportions at the moment before really focusing on the face. I"ll keep that in mind though. the face is a complex thing that should not be overlooked.
Sycra-Thanks! i appreciate the comment, it's good to know improvement is showing.
Here's the newest page, again, just focusing on overall proportion. I have a pretty good idea where i want to go with these... i just think if i keep hammering out these sketchpages i should get there quicker than any other way... and so the journey continues:
Perspective is still an important part to life drawing. There is a horizon line be aware of that when you are doing studies. At a quarter turn, if your horizon line is at the waist you would see one foot higher that the other. It all depends on the distribution of weight as well. Same thing with the breasts. Look for those key things to give you a clue of where to place stuff. In the last post one of the chicks has a breast higher than the other furthest away from viewer. It doesn't look right. Try getting those feet right as well. The top of the foot does not bubble as you have it in a couple sketches with heels. Keep doing the studies. Consistent drawing on a daily basis will get you there. Just gotta keep doing it. Later.
Nice ladies, they have great curves!

Thanks beelow and sagetso for the comments. They're much appreciated, and as i said on your SB beelow, i really appreciate the tip, i've been trying to pay closer attention to how the figures are effected by perspective, it's not something i'll get overnight, but just knowing helps.
Here's some more updates. Not loving them, especially not loving the faces that used to be there... thus i erased them. They looked bad.

Another update, photo ref'd. I actually am happy with this one. It went along relatively fast, and i didn't stress over details etc... i wish more went along so smoothly. I may color this one.
and another... trying to get faces in there.
nice movement man!! try drawing in other subjects to make you art complete. But your sketckbook is the best ^_^
good luck for your future

Im still alive and kicking. Still trying to improve. More to come, from here on out and for a bit i want to jump back to pencils, and work in that for a bit. These are all really quick sketches btw, like 10-15 min per page tops.
Danny K - Thanks, yeah i think i'll start moving into spending more time on them once i feel comfortable roughing in everything quick. Probably next week or the week after i'll move into slightly longer work.
i'm cranking a few out, i'll update as i go tonight
