More sketches from another sketchbook of mine from the 80s (I think).  This one had sketches on human anatomy.  Here are a few sample sketches.

Whenever I found a good sketchbook, I would make meticulous notes.  Here is one example of the study of drawing a female face. 

Can't believe I had so much patience (and time)!

I love Commando and other war comic books.  I loved the stories as well as the beautiful drawings.  I used to sit and copy the drawings to learn the techniques.  This is a series of sketches I made using a fountain pen.
