Hey there, been on here for about 2 years now and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience thus far. I'm just an image maker looking to improve his skills as best he can and one day make a living from my artwork. I would appreciate it if you gave insightful critiques of my work and avoid as any "ass-patting" comments as much as possible (which is something I am guilty of myself and not doing anymore). While I do appreciate any (and all) positive feedback sent my way, I would also like to hear about my shortcomings so I can work to improve on them. If you give me valid critiques of my work, I will most definitely stop by your sketchbook and return the favor.
Thank you for stopping by and I wish you all the best.
You have a lot of nice stuff going here. The anatomy studies, and master studies are very nice. The lady in the second post is really nice too, but there is something about the head that is bothering me... can't seem to put my finger on it.
Keep it coming; I'll stop back in.
EDIT: Oops, I forgot to mention. Love the political works from the first post. Its great when something can make you laugh for a minute before leaving you pensive over the truth of the statement.

Euthyphro, Six Prism and SEVANS: Thank you, thank you, thank you. Show of support is always appreciated!
Euthyphro: I think her face looks off because I never finished the sketch. It was a 20 min sketch session and decided to focus on the body more since I have a tendency to just draw faces. These days I've been doing the opposite, focusing more on body parts than the face. If there is something else you had in mind then let me know.
SEVANS: Yeah the linework is weak. I need to soften/round/straighten the edges on those line ends. They look blocky.
Hey Peetaer, thanks for dropping by my book. I see a lot of good stuff going on here - master studies and anatomy are good for you! I'd like to see you focus more on porportion. Measuring distances and measuring angles are your friends. Also use negative space as often as possible to help you get shapes right.
Keep practicing, you're on the right track! Looking forward to your progress.
