    This one's for you Mr.Delicious

    He brought me here. I have always known about this site... but he brought me here. Personally... I am scared to death of you guys. So much so that I couldn't even look at you for inspiration. You are so far beyond my understanding... I opted for something more accessible. Namely random people from DeviantArt and Sijun's speed paint thread. I am still far away from approaching those that I admire from either communities, but that's besides the point.

    Meh.... some notes about my background. First of all, some of you may know me as Adeux. Some as Chainer. Others as Ahtu... depending on how long you've known me.

    I started drawing a few years ago due to an obsession with Magic the Gathering. Namely John Avon's, Kevin Lewellyn's (Puddnhead's), Kev Walker's, and Justin Sweets works. But... since I started with no artistic background... I went towards something a little more accessible. Manga/anime. And now (like far too many others) I am trying to shake it off. It's so hard wired into my system though... losing it is taking some time.

    I never took a class for art. I am going to college for Graphic Design/ Multi Media, but it has precious little to do with my interests in concept / comic art. Everything I know, I know from forums.

    Enough of that drama. On to the pics. I will show the most recent ones without exception. This includes new ones to come. Please tear me up.

    Cool stuff mate!
    Definitely have more confidence in your work. It looks good, without a whole lot of problems (anatomy, value, line etc), so if I were you i would definitely not be so cautious. You can only get better from here.
    Welcome to the forums!! Keep posting!

    HEY! you finally made it! I mean, seriously, if you wanna focus on shaking off the anime then focus on doing more portrait work, work from other artists examples, try to mimic another style as best you can. Basically anything to get a better understanding of what makes a character realistic let it be the eyes/color/anatomy. Something I did to help my anatomy studies is I took one of my older anatomy books and hacked it up, cut out all the pages and tapped them up all around my computer. That way if I ever needed to better understand something it was right there, no excuse to be too lazy to look it up.

    I dont really see an utter attempt to break away from the anime just yet, I'd like to see you focus on your studies, you have the general idea down its jsut the technical part and minor details. I just ordered a bridgman book and its so awesome. I really suggest it for dynamic form and a better understanding all around.

    As far as actualy crits on the work posted:

    1st: torso isnt long enough, necks too thin(for regular anatomy's sake).

    6th: Her right upper arm is way too long, the elbow should fall just above the navel.

    Other than that man just keep on workin at it.

    Heres to hoping you stick around!

    I appreciate the help, Mr D. Yeah... I'm still into comic styles... and it's kind of hard taking a while to make the transition of anime inking => comic without ripping off someone's comic style entirely. I'm in no rush to drop inking styles... so I will just ease into something different in time. My main focus though is digital painting. Ala speedpainting styles as seen here and Sijun. Custom brushes... that whole deal. Basically everything that you hate.

    As for staying here.... seeing as Agelaos is here (how you been, man?)... I gots to stay. I was never much for giving compliments or crits (I suck at it, actually) so I won't look like I'm particuarly "active". I'll definately be here though. That photoshop section is shaping up to be my new home.

    god damn that first one is looking HOT, I wanna bang it. The second one is a bit off the leg thats behind the one in front is looking strange, and the arm holding the knife is bending too much, I would probably give it an angle where the elbow meets. Keep showing more, i'm lovin it.

    Great way to kick of a sketchbook man! Your creatures have that appeal and style that I've always found so addictive and intruiging, especially that last one in your first post. My suggestion would be to work on your feet, they look a bit awkward, and not quite quadrupedal enough. Other than that looking good so far, post more for us to see!
