    Recently, like a week ago, I made a breakthrough in my photoshop painting. I reckon its just a little change, but there's always room for improvment. Here is some of it

    Nice stuff so far. Definitely try to be more intentional with your strokes. Sometimes going overboard on the sketchy look doesn't work well. Overall things look good, just keep doing studies and keep drawing!

    welcome!
    man, you really did the third and fourth step before the first ^^

    work on body structure, and look very, very carefully at the relations and proportions of the figure. the colors look a bit glossy altogether, i think they should give better hint of the materiality of the object. well that reminds me to do this too ^^

    you dont have to take it, but its the best advice i can give.
    keep it up!

    I suggest studying anatomy more extensively; go to your public library and take out any books they have on anatomy, figure drawing, ro anything like that. Also I would suggest going through some books that have proffessional works in them, like van gogh or something. Life drawing is very, very helpful also. I suggest doing more from life than from your imagination at this point if you're serious about going to school for animation and being a concept artist.

    But by all means i'm not really qualified to give this kind of advice, so you can disregard it if you want lol. Great job though, keep the pencil moving.

    Hey, I'm 17 too.

    I like your facial studies, really cool.

    I would personally like to see more in the way of traditional paintings comming from you. They'll really help when you're on photoshop.

    Skrog-hey, im taking as much info and crit as possible so thanks. Im currently goin through Andrew Loomis's book 'figure drawing'. It starts off with mannikan frame. I have also been trying to do some life drawing as well, just around the town but its hard to find a place where people stay in the same position for a while. I'll keep workin at it though

    AmourFonce-thats awsum! its good getting to know other artists of the same age. Im not sure what u mean by traditional but I guess its something like the first pic. And if they help in photoshop then tell me how!!!!!!

    Ok now 30 seconf poses i know, scribbly like a two year old, but you dont have much time to refine your work in 30 seconds.

    Traditional meaning traditional medium. Like acrylics and water color and all that good jazz. Using a real pallete will totally help you when you're on the computer.

    Good studies, everytime I see studies it makes me happy. I don't remember which amazing pro on this site said it but it came from here, "Everything you do to study now won't help you for about a year." But getting in the practice of doing this stuff will help a grip, and will get you wanting to draw more and more, like a fucking crack addiction with benefits. I like the self-portraits, do some more. I'll subscribe to your thread and help you out man. Strong points I see are your digital stuff and ink work.
    Ink is fun. Use it to break barriers and choose where you want your line to go. Think shapes before you mark.

    Keep it up son.

    ok, had to work today (yeah it sucks) but ae gets me moolah. I really REALLY want to start building up these mannikins with muscles! but as i started drawing the first couple of bodies some words from loomis caught my eye

    'all the time you spend on this mannikin pays big dividends'

    I'm like.......back we go. if i practise this i get better in proportion, body movement, rhythm and knowing the body in general both female and male. So im sticking with this until im god damn happy with it

    Here are 90 second sketches i did with references from the posemaniacs site. its great for this sort of thing.....go there if u havn't

    If your reading this, thanks and critizise meeeeeeeeeeeeeee

    draw from life all the time. Maybe ask friends to pose for you for a bit occationally? I'd suggest even taking a class just for the human figure.

    The world is filled with people who were given great natural gifts, sometimes conspicuosly flashy gifts, yet never produce anything. And when that happens, the world soon ceases to care whether they are talented.

    taboo- i live in a small australian town.......very small and i doubt there will be any classes for drawing or painting but IM GOIN TO FIND OUT TODAY!!!! Are photos considered from life? I'm not sure....

    Ok, looked at my quick sketches and decided legs was the worst out of all the bodies I drew so I started workin on legs! I dont know about drawing from photos, it feels like..........cheating. Im trying to get this all stuck in my head and it hurts I'll keep workin on legs until I know them off by heart. C&C WELCOME

    I know looks like chicken shit but I just needed to get the feel of the legs. I then found out proprtions and placment

    Hey hey, nice to see people my age here. Thanks for dropping by my thread, you have no idea how much it means to me.

    I'd study three things: faces (particularly proportions, structure [i.e. shapes of the skull], anatomy (bones first, then muscles [me too]), and construction. Construction is super-duper easy once you realize that everything in the world is made up of shapes you learned as a kid (circles, triangles, squares, boxes, balls, pyramids, tubes, and cones) that add onto each other and form more complex things. Just don't use them as a crutch. I did that for a while and everything looked contrived and robotic.

    Nice start. My suggestions-- instead of pressing hard or scratching, try lightly layering your pen or pencil to make it darker or thicker. Soon it becomes easier to change pressure as you go. Also, try varying the time of you life drawings. They can be anywhere from 5 seconds to several hours. It's also a good idea to muster up the courage to ask people to pose for you. Sometimes, I play games with my friends, like asking them to change facial expressions every 30 seconds so I can practice that (fun for both of us!). Other times, I have people pose for 10-30 minute portraits, which really help a lot.

    Looks like you're in the same boat as me, I'm 18 as of a few months ago. Fresh out of high school, taking this time to really start cranking out some work and improve as I can.

    From what I can tell, you're going too "sketchy" with things. Instead of one line defining a curve, you've got ten or twelve. Try to get more confident with your strokes so you've got a cleaner outcome.

    Also as it looks like you started, might want to work on your heads. The skull structure (particularly the eye sockets and jawline) seem to be a bit off. In the paintings, like the two I assume are of yourself, you're doing some shading, grayscale. But instead of using the tones to define the shapes, it seems more just like shades and then thick black outlines.

    I'd watch those black outlines, shadows are almost never entirely black, and wouldn't be so thick for simply defining something like muscles.

    Good start, I'll keep watching. Good to see someone my age's work.

    ok now i did a portrait without the sketchyness, kinda realistic. also went through the loomis books for the head and found i was doing part of the construction wrongbut its fixed now. i dont like it. was fustrated today, like couldn't draw anything. just one of those days. also looked through this guys sketchbook, forgot who it was, anyways it showed his progress from beginner to awsum man. very inspirational. would love to hear somthing inspirational to keep me goin through the hard times.

I get the feeling the closest arm is wrong i know below the elbow is out of proportion but it kinda goes wit it?? I am planning to digitally paint it soon! C&C VERY WELCOME!
