Finished Ahmed Aldoori's 100 heads challenge. I'd appreciate some tips
Hello, I'd appreciate some tips on drawing less defined faces. The problem: Less defined faces are harder to capture accurately. They look cartoonish at best. Older people have more forms to "anchor onto" and they flow from one to another easily. Younger people have... not-so-tightly knit together forms(?). Example: You'd have the nose sink into the void of a smooth face and I can't relate to it for other features. Notes: - I can spend 30 mins on 1 sketch of an older head, this can't apply to younger heads since there's just not that much to add. - When it comes to likeness, I found it's better for me to just estimate and triangulate/ drop verticals instead of going for Loomis' approach. - Old people have many bumps, meaning if I don't draw a bump accurately, it's barely noticeable. - Young people have only facial features and smooth skin, meaning if I miss the eyelashes' shape by a tiny margin it's instantly noticeable. - If I measure everything perfectly, capture accurate shapes and proportions, the best I get is a cartoonish version of the reference. (or an ugly version) - If I don't accurately capture the same things on older people though, it's not that big of a deal and still looks similar. - shading smooth skin is harder than stark plane transitions resulting in high contrast. - If I don't put any shading at all it looks even worse.

Burning Out from Extensive Notes
Hello all! I have been working on the Proko Anatomy course (I have not done the figure drawing course though) and I have been burning out way too quickly. I think it has to do with the notes I'm taking and I'm not sure if I should keep going with my current strategy or take another approach. All of these notes are really spaced out since I do some and then get tired/unmotivated. I'm also in school so it seems as though this isn't the priority when I think of where to focus my energy. I have tried to limit my notes, but I keep thinking that every piece of information is important. I don't know what to do! If anyone has tips for how to keep from burning out or what to do about my notes would be really appreciated. (Or if taking notes is even necessary) *Sorry for the bad images, it's the morning and I'm a bit shaky*

Started the 100 heads challenge...
Decided to dive in and give it a go! Though only 5 heads a day for 20 days due to available time. Hoping I can keep it going every day. Here's day one, ready for critique. I want to try out different materials as I go too, push myself to not just use the tools I'm most comfortable with.

Hand study and need some critique
Please give me your advice. I take the photo of my hand and then use the grid system to measure the accurate shape. Critique is appreciated!

Arm Day
I've been working out ( ;P ) my arm anatomy. I think I'm starting to get a solid grasp on it but there seems to be some things that I still can't quite put my finger on. A couple studies from the course and some Frazetta arms.

Correct proportions?
I posted this on social media and got some weird comments, about that she looks short and the bottom to fat and such. It was on reddit though, so I'm not sure if I should to much attention to that ;) I'm a little bit unsure about the right arm, I always think it's hard when they are stretched out like that. But in general I'm pleased with how it turned out. Or I have turned blind to it, looking at it too much...

Anatomy and Figure Drawing Studies
Hey everyone, here's some anatomy stuff i've been working on, i'm actually taking Scott Eaton's anatomy for artists course right now which is really awesome and intense!! I can't wait to solidify my understanding of anatomy in a more focused study, and clear up my anatomy blind spots and misconceptions! of course Proko has been a huge asset in gaining anatomy knowledge, but different programs offer different things, I have my reasons!! Hopefully I won't be banished from the site for treason against proko. ;( Anyway these skeleton studies are from Gottfired Bammes's drawings, awesome architectural-like design, simple planes, and perspective to the skeleton! any thoughts crits or feedback are very appreciated!

Muscle charts
I've been told that one of the best ways to learn something is to create a project for yourself. In the course of learning muscle names, I created these charts, using Eliot Goldfingers "Human Anatomy for Artists: The Elements of Form", and Joseph Sheppards "Anatomy: A Complete Guide for Artists" as guides. I've posted them here. Hopefully they may be of use to some of you.

Some figure sketches. C&C appreciated:)
Struggling to come up with a good idea for the poster challenge. Might just draw myself on a chair trying to come up with an ideaXD Drew a few figures in the meantime. Any critiques on the anatomy? Doesn't the gesture seem a bit stiff?

🐾 Animal anatomy and photo reference sites?
Hi everyone :) I’m drawing and painting a lot more animals than anything these days and I need to get serious about animal anatomy. Can anyone please recommend any good online reference photo sites, or animal anatomy websites? Even online museums, natural history places etc. Thank you 🐾❤️

i´had never got feedback since i started drawing.
yes, its true, in my whole 5 years i´d never publish anything or ask for a critique about my stuff, im posting this because they are my most recent drawings, i´was trying to finally use tone since it was a scarty topic for me, and using some simple forms on hands just to make it easy to memorized the structure. i will love to know what you guys think and don't be afraid to rip my stuff apart i honestly appreciated if you tell my why is awfull or what should i really focus on. Also sorry for low quality pictures, phone is almost as old as me.

Recent sketches and doodles
lately I haven’t been drawing as much as I want to, but still, the papers pile up! Here is a big mess of mannequinisation, half finished sketches and even a couple of finished ones:) Some drawn from photo references, some from a mannequin doll and some from imagination. General tips are most welcome!

Some of my favorite heads from the 100 head Challenge
I finished the 100 head challenge yesterday. Since I could only attach 10 images. I just picked some of my better ones. (I do have all of them uploaded into an album on my profile though.) Some of the first heads I drew took about an hour each, but eventually I got into a good groove doing each head in about 20-30 minutes. I feel like I got a lot more comfortable with drawing heads especially the initial loomis setup and feature placement. I utilized some of the Riley Rhythms for getting a feel for the cheeks and jaw. I picked 2 of my own images from the end because for some reason I ended up short a few images and I drew 101 because I accidentally duplicated one of the sculptures without realizing it. Anyway it was a lot of fun and I will miss drawing heads.

CC Please!
Hello! Took me about 6-7 days to get this far and before I move toward color and values I wanted to see how I did from y’all’s perspective. It’s been a second since I approached a lot of the back muscles and I know my proportions still need work!
