Hey everyone this is my first ever port on CA and to be honest seeing other peoples work is extremely imitating, but i thought id post my studies so far.
All comments are appreciated.
Im starting from the beginning- starting from the mannequin frame and building up.

Your mannequins have great movement to them, just really work on getting the proportions fully down, keep it up .

You might want to resize your pictures before uploading - about 1000px max each way.
Overall good start, just watch the length of the legs, especially the lower part as they're looking a tad short.
Nice portrait, but the brim of the head looks a bit awkward, I don't think you got the perspective quite right there. Also I think you should use a wider range of values, it's all quite grey - with that strong front lighting I'd expect relatively harsh shadows on the back of his suit and hat, for instance, and inside his ear. If you look at the only place where you've got strong dark shadow (on his tie), you can see that it immediately looks a lot more 3D than the rest of the drawing.
Cheers for your comments olooriel. I put them to use. Got any tips on how to sit the hat on the head properly?

cant seem to fix the hate so not happy with it at all
You really should go to life drawing, even if it it only occasionally - it makes a huge difference putting what you know into practice. I resorted back to stick figures first few times.
And put your SB link in your signature - makes it easier for us to find you.
Thanks for the advice black spot, I'm looking into going to some life drawing classes just waiting for an opening in the class. It's a bit of a pain to be honest having to wait lol.
I've also been looking into art study groups which should be interesting.
First attempt at life drawing and working more painterly, trying to not rely on line so much.
Looking good man, but you mgiht wanna push them darks a little. You have alot of lights but your darkest darks and only about a mid tone value. Now the problem might be that you just dont see those dark darks in your subject, but its ok to change what you see to make a better drawing. Its a little confusing when everyone in the beginning is telling you to "draw what you see", but after you learn to see, you need to develope your own opinions about what your seeing. Anyway keep it up man.

Dont trust anything i say! I'm a noob.

Cheers element after i read your comment i did notice that I hadn't pushed my values enough, always a bit hesitant to go to dark and making my image flat.
Sorry I've been away for a little while now I've been reading up and studying form, anatomy and just general things, Ill be posting up a few pieces over the two weeks of what I've been studying.
