Back from class teacher was away so i got to have a bit of creative fun on the 2nd picture. Charcoal is fun.
i've started doing some creature sketches. i will post some dragon sketchs soon due to a personel project iv'e started. Just the one sketch for today tho.
Here are some yoda sketches, dragon sketches and some drawings of spawn & pinky.
I m digging the yoda pictures. Especially that watercolor.
But now on to what is bothering me. Okay, With sowan, maybe it just might be the gauntlet and the face looking somehwat downawards. The hand seems to big , and I don't see folds or wrinkles around where the arm on teh right should be.
Ev'sSketchbook for the lazy minded but willing!
Help an artist, leave a critique.
Here are some more drawings the last two are from my a-level sketchbook. Tell me what you think? The first two i was just experimenting.
You have some promise in here, just concentrate on anatomy stuff more besides fun stuff, like fun/anatomy = 50/50% of your time
youll see progress if you do more quickly

Nice sketchbook... Work on anatomy as often as possible (I am currently immersed in anatomy studies) but you should definitely work on anatomy as much as possible, as should everyone else because there is always room for improvement... Aside from that everything is looking cool. I like your last post but the arm further away (closer to the wall) looks out of place and the hand is too big, try putting her arm down, maybe around her stomach. But as I said before the character is looking cool and I like the concept... Keep posting

The Legendary Left: Thanx man for the comment, started doing more anatomy sketchs. So thanx for the tip.
My scanner has decided to go on strike so till i get a new one i geuss i'm just gonna have to take pictures of the new drawings.
All except the 3rd and last image are refrenced.
Not a bad start to a sketchbook. You're doing a lot of studies, and that's great. That's what's going to get you better. I don't know if you do any life-drawing, but that's kinda the other piece of the puzzle. If you can't take a class, just go somewhere where people are, like a coffee shop or park, and draw people. They usually don't notice. Also, I'd suggest doing more perspective stuff. As time goes on you'll see, it's all about perspective. Maybe do some studies on drawing geometric forms, like cubes, cylinders, cones, etc., and how light and shadow works on them. Good luck!
Great work you got here , but I still think you should work more on anatomy and shading . Keep up the good work

The point of doing anatomy studies is to understand the structures, the shapes of the bones, and how muscles take origin from one bone and (generally) cross a joint to be inserted into another bone. By knowing about this, one can know which muscles are contracted in different poses. On top of the bones and muscles are soft tissues. These may be stretched tightly over the deeper structures, or may be suspended from those deeper structures and hang with some degree of sag, depending on pose, gravity, and how lean or fat the character is.
The point of this anatomical knowledge is to apply it to all your other figure and creature drawings.
Always think about where the skull is, under the skin.
nice sb, you're progressing nicely.
and know what you're drawing, understand why it is like that. so that you understand it, that way you'll be able to make new, beleaveable structures (new creature designs).
A fun way would be to take 2 different animals, and combine their anatomic structures.
Have fun ^^.

Cool stuff man, one reason your life studies are so much nicer and have more form than the imagination stuff is that you dont seem to apply some of the things you might be seeing in your pictures when you do rendering from your head. Try combining good references into imagination work so you can study and practice other things while making it fun.
www.characterdesign.com is an excellent resource for references.
keep it up.
