It's hard to criticize you for real.
You know proportions and shapes pretty good.
But your drawings look pretty clunky,
and from what I've seen you tend to draw a bit flat.
I'm not talking about flat shading, I mean that you strech out the shapes, and flatten them.
Which isn't a good thing.
Practise more on different angles and perspectives,
also draw more from life, because it's really important!

Bro you have serious potential, im not just being nice either i mean it.
My advice is to grab some anatomy books (bridgman, hogarth, loomis are all authors to look out for) and study them, copy them, read them...it'll pay off big time with your drawing.
I also suggest doing a self portrait as often as you can, they help you to observe from life and there is always a model!
oh and keep posting! dont be discouraged if you get few replies. just keep doing what you're doing and have fun

havent posted in a long time... had lots of predicaments with sketchbook (lost it for a day, but whenever i loose my sketchbook, someone returns it everytime) Stopped doing digital painting until i get a tablet or touchscreen(which hopefully my father will buy for birthday)
Oh and i very rarely copy from a picture... its a habit for me to draw straight out of my head. Ill try to draw from reference when i find a good reference
and for high school my parents are sending me to a school on top of an art school, how lucky is that, i will be kicking
more from a while
sorry about the mixed media

Don't knock drawing from reference, it's a very good way to train yourself so you can draw out of your imagination a lot better. Copying people such a Bridgeman and Loomis (whom you can find online) is a great way to improve or you could go back to some of the old masters such as Michelangelo or Rubens and copy some of their drawings to further your understand of humans or whatever else you want to draw. I also second the drawing from life thing. There is a world around you....waiting. You could even mix and match. Draw your street, then put your own characters in it, etc. Just some suggestions.

thanks for the comments, they are really helpful
anyways most of my reference draw is usually on other paper, but they help alot. they arent fun though
the more i draw = the more boring school is... but i get A's, except for on reading class i get a B because i draw too much

Hey there, nice sketchbook you got here.
I went through your work and it looks good, however there's still much to learn. Diphillia gave you some good advice. Draw lots and lots from life to build up a library of knowledge. Also if you're really ambitious, buy a book about. You want to know how we work, how the muscles and tendons stretch and bend.
Anyways, keep it up!! I'm sure I'll be checking back soon.
October 27th, 2007 #19
just wanna say you got a good attitude and your doing the right things, remember your young and have plenty of time.
keep learning anatomy and doing what your doing.

*i have removed some crap at the top of this thread, which were way too bright and you could barely see any so all they do is make the download longer
and they sucked anyways
update: this one took me about 1-2 hours, im trying to put down the character's feelngs, which is not easy

Hello, mr. odisap.
You posted on my board, so I'm showing thanks. :3
You're really good at faces, a lot better than me.
I think on the body proportions, though, you tend to shrink the heads and feet. Don't trust me, though. I'm no expert. I'm just saying it looks a little funky to me.

Not bad man keep it up!
In the absence of light, dark will prevail.

Im tired of doing my own drawings
Now its time do anatomy and life studies
November 29th, 2007 #29
hei dude thanks for stoping by at my sb and for the good words ... you are doing well ... nice thing that you are doing studies ... studies are the way to go ... the way to evolve fast the more you study and make life drawings .... the better you can even take some notes ...
portraits look fine so far
hmmm the biggest problem ..."since you told us you need mean artists "
ok back the biggest problem its at the legs theyr to short
and the torso to long ... you need to study some proportions ... so you can emprove your overlook ...
keep it up .. and il step here from time to time just post me or pm me when you updated ... cheers

I see improvement, keep up the good work man, you are on the right path.
I would try to improve line quality. What you should keep in your mind is that there's no point in repeating your statements. So having a lot of lines that don't add anything to each other, is pointless. You can have a lot of lines to describe the same contour, but they must describe it in different ways.
Also, dont draw like this: _ _ _ _ _ but more like this __________
Another thing is you should try to adjust the Levels/Curves of your images, they lack contrast. They are also a bit too small for us to see. If you are scanning them, scan at 300dpi then resize the image setting the resolution to 72dpi, (if you have photoshop, go to Image > image size and check Resample Image, then change the resolution to 72 dpi and accept) that way they wont be too big nor too small for us to see the details.
