For the female character-- I like how you're working on expression. The forearm and hand gripping the sword are also very nice! The proportions are a bit off; but nice work.
For the motion character-- The proportions are also off here (hey, don't worry, practice will make perfect!) but details like the helmet feathering being sweeped back and the billowing cape add to the illusion of motion. I think it might be better rendered if his stride was longer.
I'd suggest looking at some anatomy books or pictures and sketching them to get more familiar with the human form; a lot of artists do this, and spend time sketching various poses. If you look over the sketchbooks there's a bunch of examples.
Keep at it; hope to see more stuff soon,
Constructive Criticism welcomed at My Sketchbook!
Once again thank you taven. Sorry i havent got anything up in the past few days the forums wernt opening up for me. Its ok thou i havent had a ton of time to do some awsome things anyways. You know their was a link that i was given once from conceptart.org that had hundreds upon hundreds of different models in different poses. One set i can really remember was a guy holding a gun that looked like a Rcp-9 i think its called and he was standing up on couch's and pretending he was actully in action and ive been searching and havent been able to find it. The guy was bald. So hopefully if someone reads this they can link it too me! I would love you. So anyways heres some sketchs i did the other day.
First two are representations of Illidan stormrage. Warcraft fan ... sad to see the game moving to world of warcraft and forgeting about the awsome ness of warcraft its self. Last character was a female character i just drew.
I heart this depiction of him enchanting his sword. I drew this at work and got written up cous i hate my job so much and i go on break and get back to what i love to do ... draw.
Her arms are a little to short.
3rd peice for the free art group .... Its yours TAKE IT.
Ok so some much needed improvement on this and now it looks sawweet. I think this might be one of the best peices i have done. Yeah the buildings till flat but seeing as how i really suck at them im starting to get a better build up so the next one will only be better. Hope you all enjoy.

I love the environments. Any particular method you use to figure out perpsective?
As far as the people, the armor and detail is pretty nice, but they seem out of proportion.
lol i miss when i got on after i did something and people commented lol
Ok so here is me studying women SO WARNING NAKED WOMEN ... zomg close your eyes to reality ... cloths suck we should all be naked. Anyway a much needed study in learning to draw characters. Others stuff too not just nakedness.
Working a scene. sorry first ones little hard to see i used lighter to represent atmospheric perspective.
Dread lord my favorite looking character from Warcraft although once illidan became a hybrid void lord i was like zomg illidan. But yeah remember the dreadlords yellow attack that shot a spray of freaky yellow green mist with bugs well thats what the bottom is representing a sketch of.
One thing i liked is when i was studying most of these were clothed women that i used my own mind to try and uncloth them which i think really helped.
And to end it ... all that work on females led me to draw this wicked cool sketch.
Basicly at work i was like yo dave lets create a character and so i started going threw a list of things like ... female or male ... imortal mortal ... human humanoid or other ... yada yada and we came up with this female character who basicly is a long living protecter being
hey nice sketchbook you got here
looks like your digi work is coming along nicely, sry i can't crit i don't have that much knowledge about digital painting
about your pencils, i would work out some anatomy kinks but that comes with studying. the main thing i noticed had to do with your line quality...right now your line is equal all around, i would play with it, the thickness, looseness and how you can describe different things with different line, i can see you are trying but i would push it even further, i think it would it would really add to the life and depth of your sketches, pushing the contrast will help as well
keep up the good work man, you took a big step with that last dragon
keep up the updates!
Thank you thank you! I plan to be doing tons of more sketch studies so i will really try to keep that in mind. Some things i do as well with pencils is ill just grab my normal bland pencil 2h and draw a whole peice where what i should really do is pull out all my pencils ... plot with a 2h and start going in with the other pencils. But yes thank you!
Not bad. I would highly suggest doing some studies. Just go out on a nice day and draw a landscape or two, and it will greatly help you with things you are doing in the digital landscapes from imagination. Same goes with your figures, they are pretty weak. Build your knowledge of the figure from the inside out, learn the skeletal structure, and then the muscles. Keep up the hard work, and it will pay off!
its winter right now lol dont want to go work on landscape! One of the things i dislike about my place of living is its a giant flate plato ... no mountains or anything just big chunks of forest ... i love it but i cant wait to go and see more. It doesnt shock me at all to see some of these people doing awsome mountains when they live right near them and get the ability to look and observe them all the time. Yes i know i need to study study study.
