Awesome stuff Ven! Really seeing a great bit of fluidity in your studies and your poses, awesome!
excellent studies Ven! you seem to demonstrate a fair amount of knowledge in your anatomical studies. try and apply even more imaginative pieces with those studies in mind. looking @ this i know you can do better! do more like this right after the studies just to create that balance between imaginative work and the practices :]
nice sketchbook!your studies are really nice just keep on posting.keep up the good work.take care.=)
Awesome artist and friends
Excellent to see hard work on all those studies, the arms are looking solid : )
Are you working from Loomis / Hogarth?
Everything has gotten better! BUT there is still room for improvement remember that. One piece of advice I can offer is, as hard as it is or as hard as it seems to be, trying placing the features of the face in the heads more. At least more often than not ^_^
But yeah when you do that you can really use the inside face to help define the out side of the face, set up proportional marks and just go about your whole measuring process easier, cause you're not just working with a well...an oval or egg type shape, you actually have landmarks to go off of.
YAY! DEM HANDS!
BUT! Those gestures...
while they are nice...hmmm
this is hard to explain, it's like your drawing them to much like stick figures. I dunno, this is hard to explain...and it may just be up to my personal taste who knows.
If this confuses you just come ask me...I'll see if I can figure out a better way to explain it.
Dang man, you're getting better fast!
Do you have Walt Stanchfield's Drawn To Life books? They have tons of great info on gesture drawing, I think you should get 'em if you don't have them.
I think I figured out what's weird with your gestures, they're too mechanical. Too many straight, inorganic lines everywhere, and those cross faces make them seem like robots. Capture humanity in your gestures! Go for emotion, organicness, that stuff! Gesture drawing isn't like structural studies or value work, you have to find what makes the pose come ALIVE!
I can see how this would be a really hard crit to put into practice um...just try to think about why the people aare in these poses. What are they thinking? What's the story? Don't focus on the contours or body parts, but on what the people are actually doing, focus on the action itself.
You should read every post in this blog. Keep workin' hard man!

good progress man, want to see more though, if your doing gestures and anatomy studies then you can push out a few more each day
To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING! My family doesnt eat Turkey, we are hardcore fish eaters.
Thanks dudes Yea I should be able to pump out more studies, but im gonna be honest, Im starting to get really lazy(It must end!) For gestures I've been doing Sycra's tutorial on gesture drawing, guess I did it wrong
More Head studies and trying to apply it to perspective as well. Hands and a page of hogarth figures, so nothing special about this update, oh and I "kinda" tried applying perspective to a character but I failed. I had a talk with a friend and he basically told me to work on planes and proportions so....
(Edit)- I realized the proportions on the hand(bones) are way off. :/

I'm seeing a good improvement on this page, good job.
I've been told that Hogarth isn't the best book to study from for someone who's still more towards a beginner because his work is very stylized, so make sure you don't copy his own style, and keep using other references. But he is still excellent for demonstrating some poses you may never have thought of on your own so you can attempt to draw the figure in a whole number of positions.
For your latest post, try to keep your proportions more accurate. Like the woman who's flexing her arms, the upper arms aren't the same size. Try to have a perfectionist mindset whilst you're working and try to get rid of all the flaws you can find. Don't let yourself off the hook on anything!
But you're doing great. I especially like that swordsman at the end.
Whoa! still young, great improvement!
Hey, i love your anatomy studies, they look so clean and neat, i suggest you make some structural gestures even for the hands, so you dont get the proportions wrong and realize it at the end of the drawing.
I just loved the anatomy drawings, torsos and arms really good, I am more than a bit jealous.
Oh and as I missed calling in way back I shall catch up now, Happy christmas, Happy new Year!! and happy Thanksgiving and dont let anyone give you any crap about eating fish either Fish is very tasty, and high in Omega 3 aparently which is good for the brain.
still loving your SB matey keep it coming and I shall be stalking you for an autograph in no time !! LOL all the very best to you.
A great kind hearted lumbering bullock
