anyone who's watched my page for a while (thank you very much!) might have picked up that i'm quite obsessed with the pursuit of artistic growth.
trying to better understand the human form and anatomy really takes patience and persistence to draw the same forms over and over.

i definitely see growth in my technique, and feel a tad more confident in my understanding of the human forms.
and though i believe there isn't a soul alive that will ever be perfect at drafting out 100% accurate human anatomy, we as artists should at least try to get it as best within our means.

here are a few anatomy studies and sketches that i'm quite pleased with the progress.
it encourages me to continue practicing anatomy sketches, and not worry if they come out as i hoped.
