@Mokuren and marvel57: Thanks! it's really just me fitting all my drawing exercises, studies and random doodles on one page (this sketchbook is twice the size of my old ones)

@brianhermelijn: :shock: :lol: Yeah, the placement of those two poses is a little odd, it was totally unintentional though. :lol: And thanks! :D

More for today:

Still working on the skull, I don't know if I should move on to the rest of the skeleton next or work on the facial muscles and just study a complete body part at a time?

Those cube perspective drawings are so awesome. This might be a long shot and you'd probably decline but would you like a study partner ^^? I'm pretty much free all the time and pretty close to your level when it comes to drawing, even tho I've been drawing for a shit ass long time. Think it would motivate us both to work harder and maybe we'd pick things up a little faster if we helped eachother out^^ Just add me on skype if you're up for it.

@ Happyangryman: I've never used Skype, it's like a video chat right? Unfortunately I don't have a webcam or microphone, and my internet connection is really slow. Thanks for the offer though.

@Xxcentrik: Thank you, I'm glad you like the story drawings, I really need to do more of those sometime.

Don't be afraid to download Skype. Yes, you can video chat and voice chat on it, but it's also an instant messenger. There's a lot of people, myself included, that rarely touch the voice chats let alone video.
Most likely. Almost definitely.

More for today, the skulls are from memory with no reference:
Sketchbook_04 016.jpg
Sketchbook_04 017.jpg

I think I'm done with the skull for now, still far from perfect but I think I have a basic Idea of the shapes, now I'm starting with the muscles of the face, it's kind of overwhelming, it seems there's almost as many muscles in the head as the entire rest of the body combined.

@Probably Singed: Thanks, I've created an account and am trying it out.

I focused more on basic shapes today, working my way to being able to draw complex forms easily:

Wow really nice work, I love your style. your robots and animal pictures look like they are from a story and your use of colour is really nice, what are you using by the way is that colour pencils?
Damn if anyone is writing a kids book with robots and quirky animals they need you!

Your stick figure poses are also really nice they have a great flow about them...

Keep up the great work! :)

:D Thanks mrcrow! I'm glad you like my drawings. And yes I used Prismacolor colored pencils.

Well I haven't been drawing as much lately, too much practice and not enough ideas caused me to burn out for awhile, but I'm starting to get back into it. I've also been watching some animation on netflix, mostly 2-d Disney, some stop-motion, and some anime, It's helped me get motivated again.

I'm still working on anatomy but due to technical difficulties I haven't been able to scan any of my recent stuff, so here's a landscape I finished last week:

I'm finally making some progress drawing heads:

Heads_02.jpg
Just playing with the shapes.

I think I understand the overall shape of the head, but there are still some problems with the facial features.

Nice head studies! Yeah, facial features are a tad bit hard to get, especially with how subtle each one are.

The heads were kind of rushed, I tried to fill a page in a day, but I'm still not that fast.

Good job on those portrait studies! That last one looks super interesting (I'm not sure what a chief medicine crow is)

Thanks fleur! Medicine Crow was his (translated) name. He was a 19th century war chief of the Crow Nation (Apsáalooke) of North America.

Great portrait studies! Also, I love that you're using toned paper! It's something I'm hoping to try out in the future~ The light and dark pencils you're using really pulls the image out of the paper and make them that more dimensional, but I think you can push some of the darker values more in some areas, but the studies are lovely as they are!!!! Looking forward to seeing more! :D :D
Feel free to check out some of my sketches; any tips and feedback are greatly welcomed. Thanks!
