This first image is something I did in my second life drawing class a couple of years ago, 2002 or 2003, I can't remember.

This next image is of a guitarist whom I really admire. His name is Peter Lindgren from the band Opeth. This too was done for the life drawing class.

This next one is just a quick sketch I did in a few minutes. It was done to brush up on some of my figure drawing skills since at the time it had been awhile I've drawn anything. This one was done in late 2004 I believe. I intend to paint it with Photoshop some day....eventually.

Guy In Rubber Suit,

Good to see your Anatomy Thread go up! Are you in any classes right now? What are your plans for your thread?

I'm not in any figure drawing classes at this point, but I am a student. I plan on taking one for the fall semester.

The object of this thread is to critique what I have, any improvements needed, any changes, and this will be a place where I put future pieces.

There's alot of talent on these threads, and I certainly enjoy admiring the people's pieces and hope to achieve a higher level of talent.

Perhaps someone (either you Rebecca or someone else) could take a look at this WIP painting and see if the anatomy is correct. For some reason, it feels a bit 'off' to me.

GIRS,

I would more or less recommend the same thing to you as I would to MichalB, whose thread I just posted to here:

http://forums.cgsociety.org/showpost.php?p=3437518&postcount=2

These threads are less about me or someone else telling you what to do than really buckling down and practicing drawing and painting for yourself ~ which is the only way one can ever really learn Anatomy. :) I highly recommend doing Master Copies and drawing from Life or from Reference ~ there is plenty of great Reference to be found here:

as well as here:

I5 Minute Sketchathon - Thread 1: Reference (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=298699)
http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=298699

and I highly encourage you to draw on a daily basis. I could point out all of the things which you might do to improve the drawing which you posted, but ultimately the only way to improve is by doing LOTS and LOTS of drawings.

I recommend setting a goal for each week ~ say doing at least 3-4 fast Sketchathon style drawings a week ~ and posting them here.

Looking forward to seeing more work!

Cheers, :)

Been awhile since I've posted.

That's the first entry I did for the Anatomy Lesson Series of the head.

This was a study of form and shading. Took it from a photo in an anatomy book I have.

Guy In Rubber Suit,

Nice to see you back! :) I think that the 50 Portraits exercise is an excellent opportunity to work on simplifying shapes and seeing major forms. Looking forward to seeing more of your work.

Cheers, :)
