Polonoid,

Welcome aboard! You have some really lovely studies here so far! May I ask you, what is your art background and training?

Great to see your thread up!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Thank you Rebecca.
Well,i studied life drawing for 2 years at a small workshop in my hometown in Greece,then i went to an illustration college in Athens and studied illustration(among many things),and then continued my studies on illustration for one year at a college in Scotland.

I've been working for almost a year now as a children's book illustrator here in Athens.
Not much else to say,really.

Thanks Rebecca.
For the first one,i outlined some faces from photographs and then tried to draw the skulls(from memory)inside of them.

This one is from memory.It was suggested as an excersize from a book on anatomy by Walter Foster.In my humble opinion,it's not a very good book but i think it has some useful tips.

Polonoid,

You're welcome, and it's great to see more work! May I ask, is this work that you are doing currently? If so, it's great to see your speed! Nice studies, and it's really cool that you're doing these from memory. Keep up the good work!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Hi there Rebecca,thanks for you comments.You are always around,don't you?
Well,don't get impressed by my speed 'cause the first two posts were old stuff.I just can't post many drawings at the same time cause i'm on dial-up.Well next month hopefully i'll upgrade to DSL so i'll be able to post more.

Study of the pelvic i did this morning(not including the helmet)...

Wow. These studies are bloody gorgeous. The linework and hatching is beautifully done. That last study looks amazing.

Polonoid,

Heh, yeah, you'll find I'm here quite a lot. Really beautiful drawing ~ what are you using as Reference?

DSL will definitely make a huge difference, especially when surfing such an image heavy site such as CGTalk.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

LoTekK-Thanks.
Rebecca-Thanks.I'm using Walter Foster's series Anatomy.It's not a very good book(in my opinion)but i just want to "explore" it before i move to other books(such as Loomis).
Yea,my internet connection is slower than a turtle:(

Ok,off to bed(it's almost morning here).

Study


Edit/i deleted some sketches that i think they don't belong in this thread...
I'll keep this thread only on anatomy and figure drawing.

Lovely. This probably looks better than the book!

It actually might be an interesting project for you to put together a sort of artistic digital book of anatomy stuff.

Cheers,

Lol,well i don't know if mine looks better(in the book the drawings are pen/ink-mine are pencil).For the time being i try to consentrate on being as accurate as i can and most of all to understand how the bones "work"with each part.This takes time,i know.I'm also trying to consentrate on values and linework.
You know all this time in art schools we never had a decent anatomy class and my teachers were very eager to move on to full figure studies.This led me(and my classmates)to draw figures without having an idea of the bone structure and offcourse it resulted at drawings with a lot of flaws.The good thing though is that we had a lot of life drawing classes.So now i'm determined to study the human figure(at first)as best as i can.I have other work as well and some times is really hard to find the time for personal studies,but i want to make atleast one anatomy study everyday.
Wish i had the mind to do that before i graduated...
