I said in my bio that I draw.
But I’ve never uploaded anything to back that claim.
So I spent some time scanning my old sketchbook drawings focusing on some anatomy and skeleton structure studies and reference I copied from a drawing book I received as achristmass gift about, 4-3 years ago.
Sorry for the huge file, I thought one file would be more covnient for me to upload.
Drawings done in HB mechanical pencil on some kind of cartrige paper, I think.
Might make it a habit to post more stuff, orginal and fan related, in future.
Not too sure though.

Tuesday Tips SUPER WEEK - FeetI don’t often have to draw bare feet, unless I’m doing Life Drawing. When storyboarding, the focus is generally not on the feet. They also are usually covered (shoes, socks), or just not shown on screen that much. Nonetheless, it’s important to understand their functionality and general appeal. Keep details to a minimum, unless the character uses its bare feet to grasp things or do things with them most humans don’t. The best example of pushing feet to an extreme degree of functionality would be Disney’s Tarzan (one of my all time favorite). Other than that, don’t draw too much attention to them, but find appeal in its shapes.Norm
