good thing you are study anatomy, you can never sketch the human body enough, I would say after looking at all your pictures, the process you need to learn is weight. or how to render weight and how it relates to muscles, relaxed or tense. also the muscles within the leg because those seem to look the least believable. always take your sketchbook everywhere man, can't wait to see how you improve. are you also using an anatomy sourcebook at all?

I have anatomy books and i have a good amount of drawins of them but they were just for practice i want to get into the habit of taking every drawing as a piece and really try and depict as much information in the body as i can, i have studied/practiced gesture a lot and i think its time i tackle head on anatomy

Default digital, oh digital

well started digital and its coming really slowly havent really had anything post worthy alot of crappy studies that even tho i learn gigantics ammount of info, it takes a while to build to a state im comfortable with it, so it will come in time for sure but in the mean time its hard becoming a complete beginner at something again, sorry by all the whining its how i get along with my mistakes and destroy them with practice, well heres the stuff




have a good day everyone

Those arm studies are looking pretty sharp. Where are you getting your references from?

beautiful clean lines. My recommendation for you is to start pushing your values. in most i see two values - a mid-gray and white of the paper. I would say try to get 3 values - black, gray and white - and then push to 5 values.

hi guys! well heres my practice on feet, damn i learned so much i always used triangles to express feet hahahaha, it certainly is quite complicate and will come back to all of these anatomy studies again in the future but for now i feel pumpled with so much info also my head drawings suck but now i know somewhat the planar and structure of the head, ill do some poses next and some portraits with enfasis on anatomy and exaggeration of the pose and well see from there.

Since you asked for my opinion in my sketchbook, here it is:

Nice work.

Honestly. It takes time to develop that "inner eye" that artists have. It doesn't happen in one session, hell, it doesn't even happen in one year. With continued practice and observation is the path of greatness. About the only thing I can tell you (and I tell a lot of people) is to draw what you see when working from reference, not what you think you see. Pay attention to the proportions in the reference, and double check your proportions using other traditional methods when necessary. The seven-heads method and the double-triangle method, are two that come immediately to mind when I view your work. You've got the correct anatomic shapes that you're supposed to have, but they aren't lining up or overlapping in the right spots sometimes. This causes the overall image to look wonky. Your hand and feet drawings are pretty darn good, you bet.

I've fallen out of practice for the most part, so I'm flattered you would even ask for a critique.

Cheers!

@Proffessor thank you for such a thought out reply, and i agree with everything you said ive been re learning the landmarks in the body i think that its really gonna help me to line-up my forms better and restudy vilppus aproach focusing on overlapping forms. also agree with you about learning HOW to take the most out of your studies, and what i try to do is to "reconstruct" the drawing and think the way the artist thought when he drew that particular study, feeling through form and shape and basicly make a blueprint in my brain i can come back to in times of panic hahaha.

also ive come to the decision to start on working from life the most i can, and to vary the subjets i work on, i feel ive been to immersive about the figure and havent really practiced my still lifes or began learning about value, wich are topics that are just as important so im going to try and diversify my studies.

i know reaching the level i wish to reach its gonna take me a long time, and im still a complete newbie to alot of things but i think obtaining a pace of practice im comfortable with its the best favor i can do myself to get there, so ill just keep on thriving towards that goal.
