These studies are great to do, but watch your perspective. In the twisted box study you have a lot of reverse perspective going on. You should never have your parallel sides getting closer towards the side that is visible, because that side is closer. You are going in the right direction just make sure you don't, get into bad habits.
thanks for the feedback. i got a bit complacent with those box forms as i dragged on. maybe if i take quick breaks or glances every now and then it might help.
think i used too much fixative as the other side of the page is showing. i'm looking at getting an a3 scanner cause i realised, drawing on a4, i'm not able to fit as much onto the page as i'd like. i guess i could always use photomerge but i'll have to give it a go, see how it works out.
I just read your sketchbook and I can see improvement from your first few posts
You're working really hard; keep it up! Keep practicing!
I would say that your geometric shapes are good, and you should focus on natural forms for a while. Not just the human body but still life drawing etc some of which I saw in your first few posts.
Remember if you're drawing you're getting better.Also, treat these studies like you are studying for a test, study everything that might help you the next time you draw it or something like it. Keep up the good work.
Wow , I respect and admire your work ethic M-Min. Just keep going and never give up, I think as long as your doing concious focused work/studies your gonna be on the right path
Can't wait for more : D

Nice update. Don't worry if your studies go the right way. The point of these studies are to learn, not to make pretty pictures. I see that your ellipses are off. Ellipses are connected to the perspective of your picture, so if the ellipse is describing a different perspective it throws everything off. Here is a guide that may help you in this area. http://userwww.sfsu.edu/trogu/420/re.../ellipses.html
Keep the studies coming, and don't forget to draw for fun too.
With the hands I find it helps to break it down a little further than that first. Basic shape of the palm and the direction and shape of the fingers. Working for life is always good practice. Don't be afraid to put shadows in while you are working.
