    JARheads Andrew Loomis Break threw... Last page :)

    Well none of you probably remember me, and thats all fine. None the less I
    missed you all and all your fine work, inspiration and advice and now Im
    back for more!

    Due to the lack of the cash flow I lost my internet connection and thus my
    ability to post. But even though I lost my best art tool (Conceptart.com)
    I attempted to continue my art.


    Well now that we are all caught up heres some things that have come out of my
    sketch book as of late. Enjoy and please rip me to shreds with your
    crits for I am here to learn and improve

    Comments are also more then welcomed!

    Cool start and welcome back dude! I like that first pic and the pimp One thing I notice is that some of your characters look stiff and proportion-wise a bit off. Could just be a style thing though. Bring on the anatomy studies and keep postin'

    Step this way and take a glimpse at my sketchies

    You definatly have a lot of talent but you need to work on your proportions. I would suggest that you try and draw figures in more dynamic poses and add more perspecitve to them.

    Defiantly an area I defiantly need to work on is dramatics.

    A good point, and some thing I'm going to work on, some thing that
    would defiantly make my pictures more interesting. Thanks for the reply Wendigo much appreciated!

    Well after this post, Ill attempt to do more dramatic poses, but I guess
    this one could go under dramatics, like high school dramatic.

    I sketched some this kinda goblin/zombie dude in a action pose in mid air.

    The other is just an abandoned outpost of sorts.

    Really like that Outpost man. Has a nice gloomy feel and the birch trees are a nice touch. I would suggest adding more branches. I also like those alien heads 8)

    The goblin needs some help on the anatomy front (you probably already know this). If you look at the vertical mid line of the upper body, which curves from head to waist, the chest is too far off to the left. On the legs, his lower right leg is too long. His right foot also doesnt look like its actually attached to the leg. It should have an indication of an ankle or a hint of the upper part of the foot. Sorry to tear this piece up, but these things were just sticking out at me and since you asked, I gave u some good ol constructive crit. Hope this made sense! Keep on sketchin'

    well alot of your pieces are having anatomical problems, proportionwise, adn seems to get a bit stiff in the joints in your poses. try doing some anatomical studies, or even skeletal studies jsut to understande to see what will underlie all movements..
    also do you life draw? its a great way to help you understand form a bit better.

    AmiimA, thanks for the drop by and the tips. I have taken a couple of life drawing classes back when I went to collage. Proportion wise I know I need to work on, something I gotta do. Are ALL my character off proportion?

    As far a stiff are ALL my character embodying the same characteristics? I need to know for my own sanity!

    well something I have thats deep in my sketchbook for you guys to pic and tear at! Thanks!

    Some good stuff in here, so here's my two cents:

    You tend to make hands and feet a little too small. (the feet on alice, for example). To give you some reference points, try this:

    Put your hand up to your face. Generally speaking, a person's hand is the size of their face, if you put the base of your palm at your chin and the tip of your middle finger at your hairline. If your faces are 2x bigger than your hands when you draw them, then they're too small.

    For feet, sit down, and raise your foot up and measure it against your forearm, by putting your heel in the nick of your arm opposite your elbow. You'll notice that your foot and your forearm are almost the same length, maybe a little smaller or larger depending. But again, a good rule of thumb is that if your character's forearm is 2x as long as their feet, their feet are too small.

    I hope that helps!

    Hey man! Thanks for the sb comment!
    You've got some nice stuff here. Those environments rock!
    Definitely work on some anatomy studies. Those can only help.
    Keep posting!

    Thanks for the SB comment~! I have to saw I enjoyed watching your progression in just a short time~! I have to say I enjoy your looser drawings, since you seem to do things with a lot of movement and expression. I'd try honing in on that and then going back to your line art. Thanks again~!
