I love the movement in these pieces but as I told you earlier in your future drawings you should try to clean up your lines slightly and work on your shading.
Still those things aside these are really nice. The anatomy looks pretty cool and the close up of wolverine I'm presumingis really cool. Also I love the composition on the last piece. And the expression on that guy on the right hand side of the page is perfect.
Keep up the goo work and keep drawing. I'll speak to you on Msn some time.
Hell yeah . Great stuff. Wolverine is awesome!
good depiction of movement but youe do need to clean up your shading a bit and present more of a contrast in the shading at the moment your shading it allin at the same pressure so its a bit hard to pick the image out of all the black also hold back on he shading a bit..you dont REALY need to put a bit of a scribble on every mm sqaured of paper this in turn would present a bit more of a contrast between black and white. (but you need to create contrast between dark shading and very gentle maybe smudged shading..)
but so far looking quite good despte above^ factors.
Any fool can know. The point is to understand.
sorry, but copying other peoples work will get you no where and your creative energy is much better spent trying to learn how to do this stuff on your own. I highly doubt that you did these without looking at other peoples work... unless these are actually done entirely by you in which case you can take this as a compliment
Wow, you're a mighty skilled young'un
I especially like your most recent pics... Your crosshatching style's kinda messy, but you're well on your way
Oh, and Welcome to CA, btw Keep up the spiffy drawz!
Look, see! Nifty art! http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=99803
Hey! Check out my blog here
Yeah, lose the crosshatching and try to follow the planes more when you're shading. Other than that, she'll be right.
keep it going with the ink! very unforgiving but will make you improve in all aspects in your art. you definetly talented, but keep challenging yourself. i would like to see some forshorting in your figures, more dynamic poses ( that will be a challenge for the ink medium.) i look foreward to watching you improve.
The only constant is change.
Come check out my sketchbook critiques welcome
WOW The skulls and faces look really awesome. Even hough your cross hatching is sketchy it really does a good job of showing the correct shading! Keep it up!
Okay, I'll give my opinion on how the first four pics could have been improved. This isn't to say that they aren't good but there is always room for improvement.
For the first one I think while you have placed a lot of contrast on all the main objects like the trees and the dirt the lightning bolt still doesn't feel quite bright enough IMO.
On the second one I like the whole face as a whole the main problem for me is that it looks slightly like his left eye is looking in a different direction and is slightly smaller.
For me the third piece is better when you can't see the legs because at first, even though I understand it now, the whole pose of the feet facing away is slightly confusing.
For the forth piece I like the head as a whole but in future I wouldn't cut it out. It just looks a tad weird.
Anyway, despite the above factors they are all cool so keep drawing mate.
hey, 15? this is awesome, dont stop working man!
crits: nope....sorry your work is tigth, just try to do more natural studys, and dont fix to much on this pencil/ballpen- thing.
whats about colours? can ya handle them?
Hey thanks guys I appreciate it!
Well the truth as far as colors is that I have a series of pastel, pics that are full color!!! they are all face studies and are, in my opinion, the best faces I've done. but... I dont have any software for coloring...recommendations?
and, do you guys want to see the face studies I did?
there are like 10 of them.
Hey Miles thanks for criting me again and again u r the best! thanks man!!!
The head on the chessboard, the explosion and the broken tree looks interesting! The bird is rather flat and dull in comparison. The pen is a demanding tool, which I never quite dared wrestle myself. Keep up the brave and promising work!
Some nice stuff in here, Jedininjaman. Only which are imaginational and which are refed? Because it makes a huge difference. As you saw in my sketchbook there's a big difference between my imaginational drawings and master studies and it's imaginational stuff that shows artists skills in my opinion.
I guess getting your hands on some anatomy book would be a good idea.
Excellent work!! Keeping the darks darker and the lights lighter will give you a better result - like the skull and the tree drawings. Very nice! Always nice to see up and coming talents!
the bird, the pepper,are from life, the punisher, and very minimally the wolverine head were from comics-1.5 inch tall little thumbnail for the wolverine head... mostly my work, in my opinion...
I try to be original most of the time but I still have fun w/ reffed images...
thanks for the crits!
by the way, soo many people have told me to chew on some anatomy so I am going to, right now in fact, so brace yourself for an update, and soon!
oh and... anyone want to see the colored pieces?
thanks again everyone!
Wow, this stuff is really good. Awesome work with pen, it looks really good. Did you use a ref for the first few? They look really good.
