Lee Frank's Sketchbook

Hi All,
My first post here. I'm trying to kickstart my artmaking here. This is a work-in-progress, and I'm drawing from observation of a picture found from an old copy of National Geographic. Thanks for viewing.

Re: Lee Frank's Sketchbook

Great work Lee. You're in the right place to get a kickstart, but it looks like you are well on your way already.

Re: Lee Frank's Sketchbook

Fantastic torso. I like the clean definition of the muscles and accurate proportions. Welcome to the forum!

Re: Lee Frank's Sketchbook

Ok, this is probably as far as I will take this. Maybe I'll darken the background entirely when I have more time later. I'll just keep this as part of my portfolio. Who knows it may come in handy? Hope to do more work! Wish I could get to draw everyday!
