Yes, anatomy studies from a live model are a great help. I draw people on trains and in ques a lot, which also helps. It's best to draw them fast as you internalise the forms more than if you took time to study them carefully. Once you have been doing that for a few weeks it's okay to start learning the names of muscles etc but not before. Intellectualising is a really creativity killer.
I'd like to add to what Andres said, do gesture drawing (loose sketches) but then also draw basic shapes over these gestures and then turn those basic shapes into form by drawing through those shapes, because at the moment your drawings are a bit flat.
jonathan C : thanks for your comment
acually i just imagen if someone have been in a real horror bad dream that make him or her wake up with scream and need someone to support you to calm down
I had one that repeat three time for three days come through one week and the main horror theme was
about my friend's head in the empty dark room and he speak with me and said ''''''''''' I just forgote what he said to me .
Vanaga : thanks for your comment some time the person feel scary from something is strang for someone and normal for the others I'm from Iraq the story is real i saw my friend without his body after bomb happend infront my eyes , this is the scary thing not the dream any way a just forgote that i knew that my friend now in peace.
teapo : thanks mate i'll keep my study up I'm just thinking if you too can try to draw your dream the nice one not the bad dream.
naidy : thanks my friend your comment supporting me i'll do my best to improve my artwork.
nice update qlotzan. Perhaps doing more studies of basic shapes and values would help you more with the digital painting. You'll be able to create good contrast in your work if you do more value studies
O' hai, boomerang post. It's been pointed out but your pencil work seems stronger than your digital painting. I feel like your paintings seem to use too many soft edges, making them look blurry. The selfportrait with acrylics looks good though. Try bringing the same into your digital work. Could practice with a still life or two maybe? Photo studies can help too.
Your characters seem to be quite well proportioned. If you're ready to step up to the next level, get some anatomy books from Loomis, Bridgman or Hogarth and brush up your figure skills. Some of the books can be found as free PDF downloads in the web. Gesture drawing would also help, posemaniacs is pretty good for that.
You seem very productive, that's good! Some great anatomy sketches in your last post. Make sure you pay close attention to your edges when painting, I think that is your biggest obstacle in that department.
