Well done.

Thanks; this section of the book is quite detailed, so very useful. I just read the legs section, and it's a bit of a mess. I'll need to look up some proper labelling for muscles in order to understand it well.

Love the waterfall sketch on your blog. :D Is that your next painting?

I think you do very great work with your study. Do you have the feeling that you can draw a human out of imagination? Your work looks really professional.

Thank for the waterfallsketch. Yeah maybe this is my next painting. Sad story ... i draw this last weekend to distract myself because my grandpa passed away on 31.1. I phoned with him 3 hours before. I am very sad but also happy that i have called him. He was very ill and 86 years old. I think he is doing better now.

So at the moment I will complete my marshland and I have an erotic scene in my mind that i will try. Hope that this comes out as a human scene not aliens like ever ;-)

Haha, you're flattering me. :XD: I think I can probably place the major volumes from imagination (i.e. draw the figure with spheres, cylinders and boxes in perspective) and have a good idea of which muscles go where, but I'd still need ref for anatomical details. I think faces need much more work; the book doesn't cover portraiture in detail; I plan to work on that specifically once my current task list is finished (in a 100 billion years or so, lol.)

I'm so sorry to hear that your grandpa passed away. It's little consolation, but having just chatted with you, his last thoughts were probably about his loving family, likely bringing him a measure of peace and contentment. I've had grandparents pass away as well; it's not easy to deal with... you never stop missing them, but I like to think they live a little bit in your heart as long as you draw breath. :hug:

Looking forward to seeing your upcoming pieces!

Oh I don't believe that you need billion of years :-) maybe next year? Thanks for your kind words, he definitely lives in my heart. I remember how he was when i was a child. I think its much better picture than the last years. In my heart i play 'mill' with him every day like in my childhood.

I give up the erotic scene and begun a new surreal picture with a spoon.
