A few figure sketches I did this morning.
Wow, your figure studies look amazing!

awesome dude! i am a beginner rite now , i just wish i would be as good as you are in three years ..you really are an inspiration for many.
Layu: Thank you!
Obacmar: Thank you! And yes, it seems like we are in the same boat
Vins_2011: Thanks so much, that is very nice to hear... And I really like the Albrecht Dürer copy from your sketchbook.
EricElwell: Thank you!
This evening I watched the Marshall Vandruff streaming class from this sites store... or at least 2 hours of it. It's a fantastic(!!) resource and I think I understand a few things a bit better now. For example how to use the Bridgeman books. I bought 3 of them last year but never really understood how I could learn anatomy from it. It is much clearer now after watching the streaming class. My plan for saturday is to get up early and copy as much illustrations from Bridgemans "constructive anatomy" as I can.
Here are the studies I made during watching the class:
man great studies ! i really love your lines from poast 61! keep poasting
Wow, dude, these drawing looks awesome ! I really like the flow in the poses :3 Not really much to crit here. Maybe it would be a good idea to do some more personal pieces ? Anyways, keep up the awesome work, man!
Delay: Great to hear, thanks man!
TFsean: Hey thanks
telohs: Thank you! And you are absolutely right... I'm doing only anatomy studies and figure sketches for the last 10 days. I really need to mix in some personal works to keep it balanced.
Mat: Thanks so much!

On these newest ones:
While I can see the extreme gestural lines for these, unfortunately the overall appearance makes them almost appear back-jointed at the knees. Are these studies from something you see or are they from the imagination? If the latter, be careful of the way the limbs are jointed. If they are studies -- can you cite the studies? Because this looks like an exaggerated way of drawing.
Overall though these studies are very interesting poses. I can't wait to see more!
On a side note: What kind of paper is that grey paper? I love it when people draw on that and I'd like to try it...
Bring moar on :3
Mat: Those are... hmm... a mix of gesture studies and quick sketches I guess. I try to do some of them each morning with the goal to capture the movement of the figure and also the appearance in space. You're right about the latest: knees and legs are pretty sloppy. I think I will do more training on the lower anatomy and be a bit more careful when drawing. But anyway: I try to upload every day, so you guys will get the failed drawings too
About the paper: I usually use cheap pastel paper. Any kind of mid-tone paper will do. Just look that its not too dark, so you can still go the equal range into dark and light with your crayons.
Today I decited to follow telohs advice and do some personal stuff instead of anatomy. It's not finished yet.
Hi again, It's great to see you doing all these studies and characters like the WIP above!
I especially like the flowing lines on the gesutres in #72!
Very good schtuff!
woow , those gesture drawings are treat to watch, keep rocking
Jephyr X: Thank you!
MeteorCat: Thank you, great to hear
sone_one: Thanks so much for stopping by... I really love your sketchbook!
WaSsiM: Hey buddy... Bridgman studies will come with next update for sure!
It took me about 3 hours to draw the character from post 47. The next day I've spend the same amount of time tweaking and fixing the mistakes. When I started to cut out his leg and move it around the screen, I finally realized that I need more practice on figure drawing. The first step of drawing a solid and interesting pose is probably the most important part. It is hard to correct mistakes later! As badly as I want to invent stuff, I know I have to go back and learn anatomy and how to draw figures from imagination.
Here are some anatomy studies I did today. I continue to work through the body from head to toe... I currently focus on the part between pelvis and knees. References: Michael Hampton, David K. Rubins & Gottfried Bammes.
^^^ Good to see those kinds of studies. Don't think I've heard of those references...so I'll look them up. Thanks!
I have a growing collection of life drawing/anatomy books...and the more I study that over-all...the more I wonder about the accuracy of a few of them!! :/
Keep 'em coming!
Very solid, nice, and underrated stuff.
Jephyr X: Hehe, same here. Book collection is constantly growing David K. Rubins book is awesome btw, I really can recommend it.
thegrayslayer: I really hope so Thanks man!
Big Orange: Thank you !
Today I went to the life drawing class after a 3 months break. During summer I mostly drew on A4 paper or digital, so working on really big paper from life felt a bit weird. Poses are mostly short (between 2-10 min)
i come here to please my eyes everything is awesome in your sb but your gesture drawing is mind blowing .
