here's some drawings i've made a few months ago)
great character artwork development indeed
quick sketch about drapery)
Try to pick a light source before you draw and then create all the shadows based off that - I feel your drawings don't have discernable lighting (and therefore shadow) which is a big part of giving the illusion of three dimensional form. Every section (part of the body etc) on your characters has a very similar tonal range, from really dark to perfectly white. If you decide an area is in shadow, like the leg or arm for example, then shade the whole part back so that no part of it is perfectly white, the same goes for using the really dark tones - use them sparingly in the areas that are the darkest, and use the middle greys for the rest of the shading. You might find it useful to do some exercising trying to copy black and white photography in graphite.
The muscle shading on the goat legged warrior is good it follows the form well and gives a good idea of the masses.
the only other thing i can think to suggest is to vary your line weight (thin and light lines in places, darker in others).
Good work, keep it up.
to Puck : thanx a lot for such a comment)it helps me much)
one more fast sketch)
great concepts. liking 'em a lot.
try varying the weight of your lines, also what Puck said about shading could help your overall concepts alot if you follow it.
in the last one the legs are to short.
lol You really follow suggestions, huh? ;D I like the study on the poses! Now take one or two from that page that you like and develop it as a larger sketch and add a lighting, as Puck suggested. And overall your legs are fine; it's the last 2 that are a bit too short.
thanx 4 comment) and legs...i have a small "legs theory" , someday i'll illustrate it
p.s.and my excuse is that i did't draw since u didn't born
this is a good start to your SB. sou have some pretty good costume designs for you characters. as for you figure drawing, you should get a few george bridgeman anatomy books, they are great and it seems that a lot of people on this sight have been recommending them, so i will too. keep posting!
