Hola!

I recently just started working on drawings alot more than before.These are some old sketches(1 month+) and will be posting more anatomy drawings soon!I just graduated high school and am joining our community college for their life drawing classes and live models,but there classes start around June so I have to get ready.Also,my scanner sucks so the pictures are going to look different from one another because I had to change some of the settings and I wasnt really consistent.

LiquidMetal,

Ah, welcome aboard! :) Looks like you have some nice studies here ~ the head studies in particular are looking really good!

I recommend checking out the following threads ~ you're welcome to join in the Open Figure Drawing Workshops, or to just use the provided imagery for Reference:

There's also the 15 Minute Sketchathon, which can be found here:

Which is great for doing Gesture Sketches and the like.

I also always recommend that people do Master Copies, which is the focus of the latest of the Open Figure Drawing Workshops.

Looking forward to seeing more of your work here!

Cheers, :)

LiquidMetal,

Nice studies here! The Anatomy Study of the torso is especially nice to see ~ the linework is really nice there. I think the upper thigh might be a bit thicker proportionally, but that's a minor quibble. Which Anatomy books do you have, by the way?

Cheers, :)

Right now I only have An Atlas of Anatomy for Artists By Fritz Schider.It was pretty cheap(around $12) so thats why I bought it :)Its a pretty good small book for reference.
