brilliant! think I’m going to go back in to scribbly mode(not that I’ve ever really left it! 😆 ), learn dimensions and different positions/angles of heads and bodies and the like for a bit, a wee bit of learning to do there for me. Really need to learn to do hair aswell.Posted 4 months ago

I’ve got a great book called Anatomy for the artist by Jeno Barcsay. Definitely worth grabbing if you see a copy on ebay or something. Beyond that just copy photographs from the net or magazines, and draw them out from the skeleton first.
EDIT: What I mean is copy the figure as you normally would but then look at the pose and draw the skeleton into the outline of the figure, and any combination of the above.Posted 4 months ago
just bought that, for 6 quid delivery, canny go wrong eh. Couple of weeks for delivery though.Posted 4 months ago
I like how dynamic the runner looks without needing any other visual cues other than the body positioning and hair.
Attempt at loosening up and drawing from imagination, trying to recreate a scene I saw on TV with forest, mist bands running across, mountains behind then clouds and sky. Not happy with hatching for the sky and think the most needed to look “looser”Posted 4 months ago
I’ve been trying to draw from the imagination. Not the runner, that’s from a photo of Roger Bannister, but on other days. I’m finding it takes a lot of research and reference.
I needed a few pics of longships, a few of the sea and a few of the appropriate dinosaurs.
It’s hard work but it’s out of my comfort zone which is kind of the point I guess.Posted 4 months ago

I actually really like that, canny quite make out if some of the trees are trees or people running about the hills, quite interesting, scribbles are awesome, and other peoples eye’s won’t always see what you see. there’s a weird duality to it, in a good way.

Shut up and draw a skull
The plan was to draw one when i got home last night but i couldn’t find any paper! So another early morning work doodle i’m afraid. Drawing from memory so it’s not structurally accurate – but that’s half the fun 😀 Took a few pics of the progress but the office is filling up and this is as far as i got….
I love drawing with cheapo bic pens but it’s all to easy to get carried away and end up with a very dark image.Posted 4 months ago
Yer coming on no end can’t bike, try thinking about contrast and light and dark, see how you get on with that. (something I need to consider too.)
Euro that’s a cracking skull. Know exactly what you mean I struggle at times with getting carried away and not doing enough at times. It’s a fine balance.Posted 4 months ago
There’s some awesome stuff on this thread.
For the skull drawing people, this is free and pretty snazzy:
And for anatomy fun you could do a lot worse than look at the Art Pose mobile apps (android and iOS). I’ve got tonnes of anatomy books (well, maybe 5) but I’ve found these more useful as you can generate the pose you actually want and learn through usage.
And finally, this is last nights go at ‘shattered’.

Missed out last night but did a second skull after the first which shows improvement.
Then on Wednesday remembered seeing someone drawing a load of paper planes, so I can’t take credit for the idea, but I came up with this:
Couple of smudges due to it still being wet, and I’ve coloured in the back ground. So may do another one but take my time and not smudge it.
This evening I may give Hellboy a go as I’ve never drawn him either. Although loving Marv, so might give something from Sin City a try. . .Posted 4 months ago
