Opps.. meant to say: The curves, in abundance, lend a dynamic feel to what would other wise be a very static piece. I like the feel of it a lot, and I like that you leaped in and just went for it. You'll find your feet soon that way.

Given the photographic quality of your reference, I think you did very well with it. I couldn't have made heads or tails of it, myself. May I suggest this site for some great sculptural references if you are leaning in that direction. (they don't move, that's for sure!)

Keep going. The best way to learn to draw, is to.. well.. draw!

Adriela and NoirQ ~

Some great thoughts and feedback here! Thank you both for posting. I agree that the best way to learn to draw is to draw...A LOT. I have just tons of sketchpads and newsprint pads that are just itching to be composted...but somehow, I can't bring myself to send them off...

For folks who are relatively new to drawing ~ and I think that even those with a lot of experience can learn something through practicing these exercises ~ I should say that I've been actively attempting to learn how to draw for 10 years. This is NOT counting the years I spent as a kid doodling and drawing unicorns *ahem* but only takes into account the number of years I spent in college and afterwards seriously trying to learn how to draw.

There is an old maxim about drawing that we heard in art school constantly that went: It takes 10 years to learn how to draw ~ 7 if you're a genius.

I'm going on 10 years of serious drawing, am no genius, and I still have miles to go...

Food for thought

Great sketches guys, Augustus great shading and form.
Redpoly, that is sweet too. He even has a small pot-belly, good job.

Thanks, those links will be very useful! I spent a while looking for pictures of sculptures, with not much luck, so thanks On a brief aside, i did doole a brief layout first, its just its on a sperate piece of paper. i then formed it from that, with modifications. odd, but it works for me

Thanks for the posts everyone

Hmm, I wouldn't have noticed this right off, but I think you may be right...however, the overall piece is really, really nice...I am impressed to see so much great work! This is really becoming amazing!

yeh i can view ur images just fine.

but certain members when they post it just doesn't show,or it has a red x.

other people have had the same,maybe its my pc,i'm not sure.nevermind me for now.

NOOB!

No worries ~ I think a lot of people are posting and also updating their images ~ hence the red x's. I would wait til the thread cools a bit and people have posted their work ~ then everyone's should be visible, assuming their links aren't TRULY broken.

Xillion has updated his images several times (which is fine), so that is probably why at certain times his posts have not been visible...

I've also been editing a lot of my posts, so, meh, who knows Web stuff! Meh!

Thanks, NOOB
