Hey guys, have been a lurker for much too long(you all must hear this a lot), but I finally decided having a sketch book thread might be motivation enough to track progress. At least to photograph what I am working on in my sketch book and get help. Thanks in advanced.

Thank you. I'm trying to get better at my line quality and gestures. I have sort of a hard time thinking in shapes
good start so far, your gestures are great, keep working on it.
Hey again guys. Had some technical difficulties, changing homes and everything. Here's two sketches done yesterday at the beach.
Working on a DSG right now, so lets see if I can wrap it up soon.
Hey again. Been a few more days, but decided to pull in some studies. Heads are always so hard, especially from different angles. Some of my studies are based off the"dynamic figure drawing" book, which I have found most helpful.

Quicky eye study. Eyes are just as tricky. Hope to get better every day.
A sketch I did outside yesterday and some studies of lips, ears, and noses.
Quick study of my food
Some fruits I did a tiny study on for an hour. Wanted to focus on the shapes of the fruit and getting a likeness to the photo. and also values blobbed in there.
More to come. Was recommended "The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain" to help me with my shapes and spacial understanding.
It's been a while. Had so much going on, I neglected my online thingy..i will say proudly that I did not neglect my drawings.
Just need to practice more. I've taken the advise of some to reproduce masters studies, or just character studies from other artist, when ever I have had the drive to do them of course.
Studies from my commute, of people
studies from online ref, masters studies and character studies
I know most of these are just rough and messy, but any help or suggestions would be great. Thank you
Drawings of peeps
-workshop one 3 min and a few 10
-other studies from photo ref and masters studies.
studies from loomis and another artist idk about.
Some more bodies done within the last few days, as well as studies from photocopy on designing characters. Stay tuned for more
Some figures, most are 10 minute studies. I need to work more on getting more done in less time, by the 10 minute mark I at most have the body laid out, but not any form shadows what so ever.
gotta keep going..mileage
Really liking the output, I may have found a rival haha. The sketches of people from your commute were awesome. If you're having trouble getting the gesture down quickly, try referencing landmarks to each other to help with that. I've been studying out of Hampton, and he's got a great method of using one set of landmarks to get the rib cage, head, and pelvis lined up, and some more to align the limbs with that. I found it very useful.
My Sketchbook: Warning, it's image heavy. Twiggers "Learning to Draw" Sketchbook
hey guys....dumping more of my sketchbook onto here. Some you might have seen from the FB-CA.
The website has been wonky lately, so I resorted to a blog in the mean time to get the work out and the motivation...
From the most recent to past items....here we go. studies ranging from 1:30 hrs-2:30...mostly timed to build speed and a work flow. and mostly black and white to build a better understanding of value
(first color study 45 minutes in the morning)
soem tuk-tuk I decided to do a study from
and then some studies outside on the streets
MOAR film studies black and white
Hey DMT . I remembered you didn't have a sketchbook and I see you started posting ! Great variety , and studies. I see you're doing well on trying to understand form and working with different mediums.
I like those life studies, and be careful with the line. Try and steady it and make clear lines that define the subject more. The gestures are good and will follow up latter on what you're doing. Glad to see you post .
Keep up that life drawing !
P.S : Your digitals could use some better contrast.
Please visit , comment , critique and have a chat with me
omglob...thanks so much for commenting. T.T I was wondering if everyone just hated me cause i have been posting more and havent gotten much feed back.
I just realized I'm on this stuck state right now, and I jut need to push on forward and keep practicing...especially my digital stuff with not having enough contrast.
I feel like an absolute novice all the time
But again, thank you.
Might go back to basics and practice these
