I've been a long time lurker for awhile and finally worked up the nerve to start a sketchbook on here after watching the Marko Djurdjevic DVD(very inspiring btw). Feel free to be brutally honest with your critiques. I would like any and all input you guys would have for me. Lastly i will do my best to make sure this is updated daily.

more updates. included some of my anatomy practice sketches. plz comment away.
cool stuff, i like the first post with the character ideation sketches. I haven't seen the DVD, but those look really cool. I'd just say to watch proportions, and keep practicing/studying. Be very aware of what you are drawing. Also, pay as much attention to the head and face as the rest of the body, in terms of placement and proportion. Nice work so far, I'd like to see more. And happy first post!
Here is some of my anatomy sketches. Workin at it. Plz comment away.
more updates one of these days i shall get another comment
Sorry about the past 2 days lack of updates. here is somthing for you guys out there in tv land.
snipe away with the c&c plz.
Hi, nice start man. Your proportions are still off (definitely in the females). Also try to improve your linework: try to describe volumes with your lines. Make them thicker in the foreground and thinner as they go away etc. Keep going!
Radio24, StarbonesCoffin, Bartovan,and Razorb thanks for the c&c. now only if i was as smart as my eyes...i guess thats why hogarth decided to make great books. let me know if there is anything else i can pick up to work on my anatomy. Already taking a life drawing class in school and out also. Marko DVD inspired me to be all i can be
Great start and welcome Also, nice sn! 's coffee.
Can't really say anything that hasn't been said, just keep it up.
further workings on this shamen/witch doctor/ maybe a WOD toon. I'll soon start on the out pour of anatomy studies for some input. Tell me what you think design wise on this guy. What do you take from the img?
Your ideas are looking great but as you know proportions are off. I don't know how much preliminary sketching you're doing but it definitely helps to draw the simplified skeleton first - make sure its in balance and the proportions and angles match up - then draw muscles over it. It looks to me like you're doing that but maybe rushing it. Anyway, keep up the hard work, you're making progress!
great stuuf,man but your proportions really need work.
your torso seems to get very narrow around the waist in alot of them.
em maybe buying bridgemans book on anotomy might help.
great ideals though,and keep it up
Sorry for lack of updates! Scanner decided to go out on me. Now that situation is fixed here are some head studies. Want to hear what you have to think!
My Hogarth studies. Would love feedback!!
I'd offer crits but I can't really see anything to point out... you're practicing what you need to and improving. And ahead of me as it is! heh.
Awesome account name by the by...I'm a coffee addict
some alien concepts that i put down on paper. these guys have been floating around my head for awhile. Feedback as always much loved
Dan Valkar thanks for the feedback
I like the face floating in front of the head...would that be an organic projection of some sort, or some kind of tech? Would be cool if it was a projection based on whatever race they're speaking to in order to be more...friendly? I dunno, haha. Cool stuff though thanks for stopping by my sb!
Nice Work Keep Going Dude
sunday brunch life drawing.
more studies after talking to texahol for words of wisdom. thx.
studies are looking better.
a word on hogarth studies. He tends to make his anatomy very 'bubbly'
If you're going to study anatomy from drawings, I'd suggest really switching up your source material so you can get a wide range of information, and choose who does what things best. Hogarth usually has really good information on organic form. beware of symmetrical curves ( ) <-like that. they generally don't happen in organic forms in real life.
loomis and bridgeman aand villpu other popular artists with 'blah blah how to draw human figure books' and they all have good information and individual shortcomings.
Although it is good to study how other people are seeing things, It's also important to see for yourself.
don't be afraid to spend lots of time on your studies, and finish them (don't balk out on the feet!)
something else I'm noticing, is you're squishing information onto the page. Don't squish, just draw off the page and learn how to size it properly next time.
Two 11x14 anatomy and random joe mad inspired sketch that i have to paint for school (darkened the lines on the last sketch).
improving already. i like your lines they are very confident. id liek t see some more character/monster/enivro ideation from you!
