Chrome's journey begins
Looks like today is the day I start this sketchbook... and my journey here...

The first of many:

Since anatomy is something I consistently struggle with in my previous works, I find myself needing to re-learn from fresh. Gonna post little by little here daily. I will greatly appreciate any help and advice!
Awesome, thanks for starting that sketchbook. Those skeletons look pretty sick, nice work. For anatomy, I'd definitely recommend checking out the following books: Constructive Anatomy by George Bridgman, and Figure Drawing for All It's Worth by Andrew Loomis. They're both available for free online and they've both helped me (and a lot of Crimson Daggers) immensely.

Another day, another practice... But I kind of hit a snag here; I'm having problems on how to draw the neck and shoulder areas and the pelvis is giving me a hard time... Perhaps I should try with a more simple figure rather than skeletons?

Truly appreciate criticism and helps! And thanks @dangelowallaceart The book you sent me gave me good insight on anatomy! Now im starting on a practice in that book. Thanks again

Practicing with gestures.

Nice going here Chrome :).

Good recommendations from Dangelo :).

I'd recommend continuing by sketching from reference and breaking down poses from reference images into simple forms like you are doing (cylinders, sausages, sphere's etc ...).

And then trying a few more from imagination like you are doing.

Keep pushing!

Woah, been away for a while xD. And thanks, @artloader!

Speaking of imagination, I have been working on a little project. Currently still work in progress, and I hit a snag trying to get the perspective of the dead dude right, especially the position of his legs and the style he falls down from a kneeling position after being shot in the back of his head. Also, it would be nice if yall could help point out mistakes here and there...

I could really use some help here, guys <3 Thanks in advance!

Starting on a new piece...

Is there any advice on how to approach the perspective of the backdrop? Also, I'm trying out a lineless style for this one. Really appreciate tips on how to approach this style.
Hi Chrome

In PS, I put perspective layers on top of everything and set them on a low opacity.

When I do comics, I fire up Manga Studio. They have this feature called 'Perspective Ruler', which basically enables you to draw lines in perspective consistently.

About the lineless style: I found/finding my 'lineless style' through doing copies of photos. Photo copies/life drawing/painting is as close as I can get to sharing a tip.

Good luck with the piece!

If you are reading this, I most likely just gave you a crappy crit! What I'm basically trying to say is, don't give up!

Thanks for the tip! I'll make sure to check out those tools next time!

And also, sorry I have not been posting often enough here... The short of it: Life's been quite a bitch >o<

And true, the power of drawing from life cannot be underestimated!

Me drawing practicing shading and anatomy from drawing those dummy things from life. And speaking of drawing photos from life, i should totally find one day to snap a pic of a place in my jogging spot especially on a late afternoon/sunset and draw from it...

Also, send help... I can't lighting maan...
