    Thats weird that nobody has commented on your SB. Well I'm the first to say welcome to CA.org and your artwork is good and solid. Seems you got the anatomy down, and your anime style is on point. But one thing is you said you want to be a concept designer, then you'll need to learn how to do other styles. example; creature, horror, and realitic style of concept, and out of the anime style (but don't quit anime style) to be a popular concept artist. But I see it wont be hard for you.

    I like the orc fortress a lot. You plan characters well -- all the expressions and such.

    Branch out a bit more from anime, you've got great potential in a lot of fields can't wait to see more!

    If you're going to tell people the truth, make them laugh, otherwise they'll kill you.

    Ok! Ok! I had forgotten, for the last character!
    But here it is!

    The other design is for the magazine drgonstale! Was done in watercolor!

    Realize that you do not have much practice in photoshop! So if someone you know, I wonder how I trace the art-finalized without white dots!

    I like your last landscape pic. is that watercolor? I enjoy the characters simplicity. I think you just need to work on your coloring add some more tones on em!

    well it seems like almost no ones given anything constructive for you to work on sorry to see that dude - but luckily I noticed some stuff I can point out to work on so hurray for self betterment.

    first off in concern to style which someone mentioned earlier, you should really do whatever drives you and whatever feels the most natural to you. I don't get the vibe from these that the animeish style is too forced for you - so it's fine to keep going. However, its very important that you spend a lot of time learning to draw from life before drawing only from your head. So with that said I suggest throwing down on drawing some things in front of you (people if thats at all possible - and pictures will do just fine for now). Just draw what you see and some of the anatomy issues in these will slowly dissappear and your figures and poses will be much more believable.

    On to my initial intent of this post though, which pertains specifically to lineweight. It doesn't seem to be as much of a problem with your pencils, which I think have a nice fluidity to them, but when you go on over to ink a piece - they all lack any variation in the weight of your stroke. This just leads to very flat pieces. I'm assuming your using a felt tip multiliner for inking? If thats the case I would highly suggest moving over to a pen w/ a nib (can use cartridges or the old fashion dipping style ) or a pen brush (copic makes some of these I believe). Winser-Newton i know also makes a really fine tipped sable brush you may wish to check out if thats your thing but thats kinda irrelivent. Anyways all of these will give you a much greater variation in both the fluidity and weight of your stroke with ink. If this isn't an option however, I would suggest using varying sizes of the felt tip pens for inking, and probably do a very thin maybe 0.1 or .2 for the inside strokes and maybe a .5-1 for the outside form of the figure. This will help the eye read over the picture more easily and make for a much more volumetric piece.

    On the note of coloring I'm not really feeling the psudo cell-shading you have going on. I'd suggest either fleshing it out fully (by smoothing out the hard devisions between colors) or dropping those middle tones between the shadow and main color. Either one should work just fine. Also your shadows and highlights are working only with the local value, meaning your not taking light into account (and it should be taken into account since its lighting your piece). A shadow from a white light is going to give a neutral shadow, however the shadow of an object contains a very muted tint of its complimentary color. Also if you're hit with a warm light such as yellow or orange (from like the sun) the shadow will be cool and be made up of the complimentary color of the light source. I'm not exactly the best person to ask about color however, so I would try and look up some guides on coloring and such, and also before moving on to digital, I would make sure to work mostly on traditional mediums (though you appear to be doing that).

    anyways dude I hope some of this helped :] this is a good start to a sketch book - keep it up man

    hey dude - on this new one don't be afraid to push your colors much harder than you are. I think you're playing it pretty safe. Try to push it further than you think you can (darker darks and the shadows should have different colors in them, not just adding black to it but the opposite color on the wheel). give that a shot and see if you don't like the results better for the colors. I think you'll be suprised at how much color choice will help this. Also its not like you have to mix the colors on photoshop, and theyll never run out - so experiment a little more and see what you cant come up with (I'd also suggest reading up some on color theory if your really interested in coloring)

    peace dude keep it up

    edit: also I noticed you listened to what I said about lineweight with the heavy outerline and thinner inside lines. As it was however your lines were fairly thick, so if you can get any smaller pens Id suggest keeping the lineweight you have on your thin lines now for your outer ones and make a thinner line for the inside, otherwise the outside line is just overpowering the piece)

    I usually don't like character drawing, because people often use heavy stylization instead of learning how to draw. I don't get that from your stuff at all. The stylization is there, but you're clearly making an honest effort to learn the body and how to turn 3D forms in space.

    I particularly like those first few pages of studies you posted. And the scenes. More, please!

    I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).

    You have some very nice body language and facial expressions in your characters.

    I'm not to fond of your colouring though, to ME it almost appears like you can't pick whether you want it to be slickly cel shaded or loosely washed and seem to be in a weird middle ground (really evident on the last piece)

    Hello ragsonu, I think i might have few suggestions for you how to push your watercolours further.I was asked while ago in DA about retouching digitally watercolours and this might help you:

    "
    -Scan them 300dp

    -Make sure you have photoshop

    -Use following functions for retouching colours: Saturation, levels, contrast, selective colour, channel mixer.

    -You learn to use these by success and error, put preview on when you are using these (from down left corner) and see how your images change

    -If you wannabe real pro, you use curves, but it needs practise. Scourge for some tutorial
    "

    Other thing is the same problem i am struggling right now with my watercolours, white area. Your desing and composotion is very good but colours are pale, with lots of white area and colours too close to the white.

    if you don't still use, get heavy paper for watercolouring +150mg, get some and look for the difference how colour looks with different weight paper.

    It might be interesting to do a single A4 composition, character and a backround in ink. scan & copy it to the heavy paper so you have original and duplicate.In first one watercolour picture just like you have used to and in second one colour it again but instead of leaving white area use pale colour in the place of white,and i mean all white and push more colour to picture to make those pale colour areas to look light compared to the shadow colours. This is what i will try myself to see difference.

    This is schoolwork, i should have used curves to get more middle shade colour in this picture and use more aggression in colouring to drive white away, still much to learn... http://matsurus.deviantart.com/art/w...ungle-67687635

    Take these with little salt, well anyway my 2 cents.
    keep posting
