Welcome, you are definitely studying all of the right things. Keep at the Loomis, perspective, and anatomy. Can't wait to see your improvement. Good luck!

SKETCHBOOK UNDER CONSTRUCTION (need a scanner, roar )
Keep working on that anatomy. I think the main parts of your figure are very good, but you need to work some on the hands and feet. Of course, those are always the most difficult, at least for me they are. On the second sketch from the top, the woman's calf struck me as being rendered very nicely. Keep up with the variety of subject matter, too.
thx guys, it's funny you would mention the womans calf because I really enjoyed drawing that particular part, like I was in a moment of one-ness with her calf and my drawing. It was damn cool.
Not so many ones I liked this time
The last post reminds me to get up early tomorrow morn. for figure drawing class. Keep it up
tried a 9B but it was too soft and messy, only satisfied with the first, the rest are filler
I later ditched the pencil and went back to sanguine.. I love this pen

thanks for the sketchbook post. the new updates look nice. good pose studies and obvious improvement to the figures. Id like to start seeing some more finished ideas. With what youve shown us so far, you have to have something in that sketchbook your not showing us. lets see some oddity, or some concept, .
hey guys--the variety is gonna be put on hold... going deep in gesture drawing for a while.. wanna get this skill down ya kno' wa'm sayin! I can't wait to make a big bad ass creature concept with colour 'n background the whole meal deal... but it will come out so much better with the foundation zkkkkilllllz down ya kno'!
alright here's the latest, think I got two good ones in there... not trying anything fancy just finding the flow in the figures and drawing the lines

OK. Damn haven't done this in over 2 months and the first hour and fortyfive were a pain. So damn hard to just let go and draw what you see, but the last 15 I started to get warm again and could draw and relax. Here are the few I didn't rip.

I like big noses.
Thanks Min! it's cool that you say that because the first two guys posted 12:45 I felt very confident when I drew them, I didn't do much searching I just whiffed out the form with the pencil pretty quickly. =)
Keep on questin' i see progress already!
My sketchbook - Please take a look and help me progress!
Waddup Nils? Nice figure drawings, but I already told you that. I definitely see improvement in your figures from your latest batches compared the stuff you posted back in November/December. I think you've become more confident. Just keep it up, I'll see you monday.
here's some more from today
My sketchbook can use some colors!
Hit the streets, first I tried to draw people in motion but that was impossible. How the hell do you do that?? I guess photographic memory isn't my forte.
So I captured this lady in the subway and this guy talking to his mistress. Made up the color later.
Crits are very welcome. Just decided to call it quits and probably a bit "blind" by looking at it still. The nose.. that's the best I could do
Mirror portrait btw.
And here a few figures.
