A place for one's sketches. *Cheeky digi-bonus*
Hello everyone, I've been lurking this site for a very very long time now, and the range of art doesn't stop inspiring me. I'm currently in my second year of studying game design, so I started this sketchbook to get better and better with some help, meet some new people and hopefully feel more motivated to draw more often.
C&C always welcome, and thanks for looking.
From my anatomy book over the last few months, mostly Hogarth studies:
I'll update later from my other book of doodles...

Hey man! Impressive anatomy/perspective studies! But because of that, its hard to understand why your gladiator/swordman looks a bit stiff and not really correct...
Anywayz, very good stuff up in here, keep going on!

Some of the better pages from the last couple of weeks. Been a little busy, so there isn't too much.

I second that, good anatomy studies so far, keep 'em coming. the last one seems to have bubble butt, not quite proportional to the rest of the leg. But the muscles are great!
LIVE FREE. DRAW HARD.

Thanks for the comments guys, proportions aren't my strong point.
Just a cheeky little update to keep things going. The last page is more of an experiment really, i bought a bunch of new materials and went a little crazy. I'm pleased with some of the effects though, but let me know what you think.

Nice anatomy studies of Hogarth. You might want to mix his study with maybe loomis, vilppu or bridgeman? Hogarth drawing tend to be more stylized (of cos that intentional on his side to emphasize the muscle ) I find loomis and vilppu's most natural. Your environment sketches are also very good... Very strong sense of perspective... Keep it coming....

Thanks Mydrako, I like the look of Loomis' books some of the studies I've seen here are very impressive. Although the best book is alot of money
and ever since I started using the wacom from my old school, I've had my eye on one ever since.
I'll post some of my first ever digi's to show u all sometime to get some variety over here.
Until then, it's all about the pencil...

Some more environments based around a half-life 2 map I'm building, followed by a notsogood page (I hate faces!) and a self portrait.

Nice studies with the anatomy, you just need to practice translating those forms from your imagination, but that will come with constant figure drawing of both types. Also, the muscles are just about perfect, but when you translate them with skin into a character try to keep yourself loose. If you stretch your arm out or your leg you'll notice there are alot of subtle details and bumps, especially across the outside lines. It's these bumps caused by veins, skin and other imperfections that give so much life to a figure. Define points but leave others vague. It may seem counter productive but it tends to give more life overall. Very nice studies I can't stop looking at the muscles!

Hey, good thing you are so serious about improving and studying! I'm sure you hate faces at the moment, you just have to learn the curve of understanding them better, which I'm sure you'll gain if you keep drawing them. At least your self potrait looks good. I'm not that good at it and should do some more my self, you will learn a lot from SP's after all.
