Yes, the mouth is the one part which is more off than everything else. I wonder if that's due to the paper being slightly rotated without me noticing while I was working on it. Hm, but even with rotated paper it should have been possible to get the angle right by comparing against other angles and lines which were already drawn at that point.

Haven't drawn much the past two days (not feeling too well, headaches, arm and shoulder pain... blah excuses!).

With only a few minutes each day, little to no progress is being made: (refs: first, second)

20% constructed, 80% invented, 100% distorted  :blind:

That one looks nice, I like the green color. What are you using to draw your lines?

Thanks. For the lines I'm using blacklead pencils from Faber-Castell. They come in various levels of soft/hardness. The green is from some cheap colored pencil by an unheard of brand called Fantasia Colors.

Tried the class mode of that page wishie linked to earlier (looks like the time limit in each is giving me a hard time trying to finish anything):

Can't ever finish any drawing in the given time limit.

Okay, guess it's time to post my struggles ;)

I'm trying to get the general idea right for now, not going into details too much.

I'm building upon Loomis' framework, references from posemaniacs or photos











The waist and pelvis areas are most problematic for me I guess, tried to substitute the pelvis discs with just a block and I think it worked better in some of the drawings, but I think I should try to use the discs either way, since their idea is closer to actual skeleton.

Anatomy aside, I still can't get a good feel of 3d forms in general - when drawing simple 3d primitives I still end up with distortion and crooked angles, and any attempts at foreshortening without any reference end up in total failures :( Any advice on this?

I was trying the 2nd website wishie posted, but all the times seem to be off for me.  atleast for the longer poses I noticed them only lasting about half of what theyre supposed to.  Anyone else have this issue?  MAybe Ill post my stuff later but I cant scan it right now.
