Alright! Looks like we got another anatomy junkie!^_^Nice start. On the first post tho, I had to tilt my head! I like the anatomy studies a lot. Creepy faces...and the last head pic has a very interesting angle.You got good skills for someone who hasn't drawn since middle school. All I can say is keep drawing and I'll be back! ~~Sio
here is a consept inspired by Un paid employment section of the forums.
Wanted to make a light infantry guy. dont laugh pls.
here is a logo i just did for my brothers buisness. I had to draw and paint the speaker with my mouse. I cant draw straight lines with the mouse.

here is some faces i did with photo ref.
here is my first sculpt attempt ever. I tryed the human skull because i wanted to get a better understanding of it. It helps ALOT. I used Anadomy for the artist (ricter) for reference.

hey nice book
skull looks cool...working with it will help your portraits as well
and work with body anatomy too
dig your first posts and the studies and such

Dashi: Thanks! Yea, i want to eventualy model the whole body in clay. It helps soooo much with drawing.
some hogarth study
Nice rendering technique there Blahm. I have to agree with Camilografix your stuff is coming along nicely since you have not drawn in a while.
You need to keep at it and keep at it
You are getting there ...and very nicely too
Good stuff here. I admire your perseverance and I see good things in the future for you if only you keep it up. The sculpted skull is quite impressive, too, since I wouldn't know where to start with that.
bengonzalez: Thanks alot! The sculpt is done from super sculpey. And it probly wont get casted beacause i dont know how.
Ashmeto: Thanks man, i will.
Bubstar: I apretiate it alot. I am fond of the sort of Germanish rendering styles.
Camilografix: Thank you!
Aremah: Thanks for the comment! I will never give up!! argh
Here is a face from picture reference. The photo is at a wierd angle sry.
i think you are on the right track. i m a beginner too so perhaps i m not the best person to give you crits but i think the first thing you should improve your lines. it would make your sketches much nicer.
bye and just keep going.
You're suffering from a bunch of 'beginner mistakes' which is good. Why is it good? 'Cus it's easy to correct 'beginner mistakes'--just draw more!! =D Your biggest issue right now is line quality. Try making long, smooth lines. Think twice about placing a line on the paper--what purpose does it serve? Try to see the big picture.
Keep drawing dude, good stuff! You have a healthy mix of sketches and other mediums. You may want to throw some paint into the mix, though
The iconoclast, auto matt: Thanks for the crits! yea i have been somewhat aware of my bad lines recently as well. I have been useing pens alittle to try and work it out.
Here is some i did just now using no reference.
Nice Studies, I like the First ones and I like to make people Funny

I like what you've got going here. I can tell through your sculpture and drawings that you have a good idea of objects in 3d space, but I think your linework is selling you short, as the kids say. A lot of your marks are very short, and your longer lines are very light and unconfident (is that even a word?). I've been working on the same thing in my work the past couple years. A few excersizes you can try that helped me:
Draw a series of dots on a piece of paper. They can be along a straight line or scattered all around. Start at the first dot you made, and attempt to draw one single, solid line from the first to the last dot, stopping at each dot. Between each dot, aleternate the line from 100% dark to very faint. So you'll end up with something like this:
This is not unlike the ancient chinese mind-game known "connect the dots".
I've found this really helped me develop good line control and helped make me a lot more comfortable with making what I wanted to make. As you can see, I'm not very good at it on the wacom, it's hard to do on a no-resistance surface... but on paper it's easier heh. Anyway, give it a shot, hopefully it'll help you. (I didn't come up with this excersize btw, it was taught to me by a grand master chinese shaman doctor by the name of Chunder)
Another good way to practice is to just draw a spiral on the paper. Try and keep each line equally distant from the previous layer. This helps develope basic control, and it's really fun because you can see your progress pretty quickly. Doesn't matter how big it is, doesn't even have to be a spiral. Just a simple set of rules that allow you to focus on making a very specific line without having to worry about anatomy or lighting or anything like that.
Anyway, hope this all helps
I like the guy with the hood very much.
Farg: That sounds like a great excersise thanks!! I apreatiate your input. i will definatley try that.
artmaker/ rookie: Thank you kindly.
Sorry for not updating in a while. lazy.
Ok, here is some refed heads
Self portrait. ignore the legs on my face, i tend to draw over stuff.
Edit: OMG! im sry about the quality of some of the pics.

That Fat Kid: Thanks for the encouragement! Yes sometimes i spend hourse looking at Weses sketchbook. It just blows my mind haha. Your making really good progress yourselff BTW.
Well while everyone else is out getting laid or drinking/smoking ( living ) on saturday night i decided to do some Lion anatomy! hurray for me.
Lately its becoming very hard to not get side tracked. I can hear the video game store beckoning me from the distance. The beer in the supermarket quietly whispers my name when i walk by. I am having a strange time these days.
oops forgot my wannabe cast drawing. These are not easy.
its not nearly done. starting to get a little annoyed with it. Makes me want to be in school haha.
uh oh, you guessed it
Fat Kid: yea , i am going to buy some more casts pretty soon. Mabie a full bust this time.
i rendered this one out a little more. i like it.
