    It's good to see you posted a sketchbook! Yeah, your referenced piece is definitely the strongest (for obvious reasons), though I'm not entirely sure what's going on with that dark splotch between her head and shoulder. Keep up drawing from reference because it shows when you start drawing from your mind when you don't have a good feel for what you're doing. Our masked man's legs look like they'd be too small to support his body, and at first looked like some mechanical entity with teeth chewing him up. The spear fella's shoulder looks dislocated and his polearm looks like it's got some perspective/foreshortening issues. The third one, the girl's face looks skewed and the guy's arm is pretty short.

    Your first piece really was good though. I'd love to see more of those from you, keep it up.

    Hey there. Good to see you've started a sketchbook. Post some more things asap so we can all see where you stand. Copying popular manga characters doesn't really give us anything to go off of. The portrait type drawing is a good start, try using a broader range of values in your pieces, all the mid-grays are really bringing everything down, because it's all too flat, not much here in terms of depth.

    Keep posting.

    I know, manga fan art is badly seen(and i understand why) i try to keep it at minimun, just when i fell like been childish the fifth one is a birthday present for a friend, the black hair girl is supposed to be her lol.The mask guy is belongs to a buddy.No more fan art, i promise.

    I am on it right now, i found a few stuff in my folder, im trying to find other portraits thought or still life, is been a while and most of what i did i gave them away as gifts, but i think i still have some, ill update again more late at night after i scan (is 5:30 o clock here) or tomorrow tops.

    I dont think its that manga art is bad in the first place...it is because of its emphasis on disproportionate limbs, faces, etc....that for a newcomer to art should be wary of, and yet many ignore these warnings. I love the style of manga, but as a foundation it will steer you on the wrong course.

    As far as crits would go from me - I would say to try and vary your line weight a bit more to help you push and pull the figure/objects within the image. Right now because of the heavy use of dark outline they tend to fall flat...even the very first pencil image of the girl. Also, push your darks/lights more when working with pencil to give better depth.

    update

    Sorry for the delay, here are a few more of my drawings, im sorry, but i couldn't find any more portraits or still life, i really gave all of them away, The first 3 are referenced but they are really OLD, the first one is from a Diego Velazques painting and the second one from painting by David Alfaro Siqueiros.
    What im going to do is try to find a little time during this week to sit down around my house and draw some still life or something to show where im at this exact moment, a little patience please.

    The other ones are rough practices i have done,with random ideas or when im bored,i do a bunch of those, so i can post them regularly if you wish.
    The last was one is a bit old too, early practice on vanishing points. I was going to post some of my anatomy notes and references, but most of them are in notebooks and are very rough, i rather take some time to pass them in white sheets, that way i can retake some info too, again, some patience.

    I downloaded the Andrew loomis books, im going to have a blast with those over the weekend.

    Tetsuo: I agree with you, before working on any particular style is required to know about the foundations first , if not is a step in the wrong direction.I do like the style a lot but when is done properly, and i sure would want to be able to draw in another way if i want to eventually, and not to be stuck in one style forever, thats what i think is the best thing of studying the foundations.

    As for the line weight, ill keep it on mind and try to work more on that

    thanks

    I won't say anything on the ref pics since you said they're really old, so I'll start out with your other characters. When you draw hair, it sometimes looks like it's stuck to your character's face... or wrapping around it. I mean the first two guys on the top row of the fourth pic (the guys right of the filler bunny) don't look like they have much volume to their hair, and doesn't quite register as bangs, rather something like face paint hair or something. You got it going on in some of your other drawings, but it's not as apparent. I'd also like to see some bulkier armor or clothes on your character because they too seem to wrap around your character's form a lot of time. Otherwise it looks like you're making progress with the boxed forms and perspective thing, keep it up!

    Some more rough junk and randomnes

    Yep, the title says it . I havent had the chance to sit and draw this few days, most of my time im with an uni book in my hand and once in a while i take air and check the internet, i made a couple of wips for portraits and still life but havent finished them yet, will try to get at it past tomorrow after my math midterm.

    But i went to the junk box and pull a couple of things to post while at it, some rough sketches i made a while ago, and some practice building hands with simplified shapes and vanishing points,that one is a bit more recent, i still trying to get a hold of it.

    Just for the record, i dont draw hentai lol, that was me fooling around, i was thinking on a new design and practicing a bit but i got tired and started making doodles of chicks around as a joke, is crappy but it makes me smile once in a while, so i post it, just being funny.
    The color one is a bit older than the one i posted before, some of the same critiques made on that one can go here as well i think.

    Drunken: Yes, i get what you say about the hair, is definitely something i try to work on, hair is important for me, lots of the designs i make have a fair share of hair, so i must keep an eye on that.

    Jailhouse: Thanks, glad you like it

    Dude, we both gotta update our sketchbooks... have you been sticking to loomis books? or what have you been studying in particular? I actually have too much on my plate at the moment (Atlas of the Human Anatomy for the Artist by Stephen Roger Peck, Loomis books, I need to get some other books as well.... and to top it off, I've gotta practice some 3D modeling too o_O')

    Hey drunken, yeah man, im with you o.O i need an update. I have taken this week to retake a bunch of stuff, as i didnt had a proper schedule for drawing because uni midterms, i have been using the time i get to practice,read and update notes, im using loomis first couple of book to refresh, i found Hogarth´s book on hands, i was looking for it for a while, is pretty cool ,and some info on color theory im putting some attention in.
    Im updating my anatomy notes, and redrawing in clean sheets,with new ones, i have a some i can scan already,from the upper body, and 2 portrait wips i have been putting aside to much. i still need a couple hours for each, im rusty.
    3D modeling is pretty cool, i learned maya for a while but i think i forgot everything -__- too much time without using it. Hope you get to update soon as well.
