Dennis, this is good work. You will find that you will continue to have that problem for the rest of your artistic career. You will always have multiple skills that are lagging behind the others and it is difficult to choose the strategy in which you deal with them. I'm having problems with it too, currently.

some hands and such:

You will always have multiple skills that are lagging behind the others and it is difficult to choose the strategy in which you deal with them. I'm having problems with it too, currently.
The main problem is distractions and too many options/activities which beg for my attention. There are always 100 different things I'd like to pursue and I never find the discipline to follow only one of them at a time. I also don't have an "artistic career", never had an art job, never made a single cent from anything I've created.

I had a good run with that last streak of almost daily practice sessions which went on for a couple of weeks but as always I eventually ran out of steam, this time it was caused by having to stay sick in bed for a week. During that week I didn't feel like drawing anything and afterwards I somehow didn't pick up the pencils again either... weird. Currently addicted to Starcraft II again, so I've got nothing new to show. :(

By artistic career I merely meant the time in your life you dedicate to art. For me I don't think it's a discipline problem, but more of a paralysis. Theres so many things I need to work on, how do I choose?



edit: I could totally hijack this thread with seminude drawings of me if I so desired:

Grown tired of posemaniacs for a while, so I'm using the stocks from deviantart for reference.

Some more of my figures:


Still the same problematic areas: hips/pelvis, neck, hands and breasts obviously

I did some muscle/bones drawing in the meantime - think I have a bit more idea what actually I'm constructing than before.

It's still a long road! :)

Cage: Those are some nice and solid drawings, keep it up. I have a hard time with hips too, one of the most complicated structures of the human body other than the torso imo, but we see torso's all the time making them easier to draw at will.

Something of anatomical interest; you guys know me and arms:

Lovely studies. The underarm parts, the armpit at extension etc always give me trouble.

It's been a while...  hoping to get back up to speed and do regular studies again.

Got a HD capable Webcam for the main purpose of recording myself drawing and then later analyze it to see issues, also to document my progress (nothing more motivating than going back every now and then to see the improvements made over a longer period of time).

drawing/eyeballing practice from photo ( process video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7lVDTiTCvo0 )


Right arms seems a bit too big, face is way off from the reference, especially the mouth and nose region. Still felt good to be drawing again.

Drawn from memory. Long breaks without studies ==> back to square one. At least my mind remembered the count of eyes on a human head correctly.

couple of random head constructions from scratch ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TrvcTlnMfmA ):


some sketches using the 30min class mode from http://artists.pixelovely.com/practice-tools/figure-drawing/ :
(the time limit never seems to be sufficient for me to finish/observe anything accurately (which I find a bit frustrating))
