While my hand is healing I’ve been doing some George Bridgman studies. I’ve done them long time ago before but in this case I’ve been using them to learn how to have better line economy. I noticed I am getting better but still a long way to go. In this case I have to say I’m having conflicts with my scanner due to the fact I’m trying to scan in a ringed sketchbook that is very small. I’ll be switching to a Moleskin notebook sometime in the future (but I’m saving it for more of my character sketches).

The pen sketches didn’t have pencil undersketches. I just did it to improve my accuracy and stop erasing so much. I tend to take notes form sites too, so this was quick basic foot studies.

More of those ugly bus sketches. I don’t mind them, it helps me explore things without expecting something “terrific” to come out…which is all too much the reason artists have “art block” I always find something to draw I just don’t expect the same goal of something that needs to be posted.

Some were referenced but a lot came out of my head. The goal sometimes isn’t “make a cool looking character” the goal is to become more confident in drawing. Stop bad habits like hairy and unsure lines. Be more accurate. Find a new way of rendering light, form, shadow etc.. Other goals were understanding skeletal anatomy, instead of focusing purely on surface anatomy. I am posting these so I get a better look at my progress instead of turning pages.

A lined paper sketchbook… did quite a few studies on the bus on a daily basis just doodling figure studies. Done mostly in Pen. Quite a bit of failure but mostly done to become more accurate.

Not sure what to say about this. I was getting frustrated in Open Canvas and wanted to learn how to paint better. I started trying to sketch out stuff and thought…”you know I never really tried painting a skeleton…”

So I took some references from the book The Nude Figure and started painting them. I stopped trying to do preliminary sketches and just tried painting in the figure to see how far I got.
