    First off, nice work! Might I ask what references, if any, you're using for the anatomy of your works?

    Let's see... In post #1, the three headed beastie is something. Have you ever thought of expanding on it more, or coloring it? I found it interesting, and wouldn't mind seeing more work on it.

    For the spartan warrior, excellent shading. Any idea on how long it took you? The details like the veins on the arm are nice. Furthermore, the woman's body, with the black swaths covering stratgeic areas, I also like. The red heart in the corner doesn't really fit (color-wise or style-wise) but the rest is wonderful.

    Wish I had more constructive criticism to offer, but in my opinion you're doing well with your stuff, so there's not much to say past that.

    Oh, one more thing. Could you outline which mediums you used for the different peices? Looks like pencil, ink, and markers for the most part, but I could've missed something or be off the mark.

    Keep up the good work, I hope to see more.

    Bad-ass. I love the spartan. The only thing I would recommend is a greater variety in subject matter. Your rendering skills are comendable.

    Taven: thanks! Most of my anatomy is done from the mind, but there are a couple of pages up there with tidbits drawn from a muscle & fitness mag, heh. Nah, never thought of expanding it, hah i need to flesh things out more. Id say the spartan had maybe 4-5 hours of rendering to it.
    Youre pretty much straight on with the materials. colored ink with pen and brush, graphite, sometimes charcoal, and copic markers, sometimes a bit of conte and prismacolor pencil.

    Retronym: thanks man! I agree I need more variety, need to get out of my box some. Hah im glad you think that, I dont believe my rendering is good if I can see an artist do better

    dtr.aty: Hah! I wish!

    Instead of all these old sb pages, I have a little step by step of some experimenting ive done. never really combined these materials like I did in this. I have an idea for a comic, and would like to know your opinion: would you like to see comic pages rendered in this style?
    (btw im aware of many of the anatomy flaws, even excepting stylization but you might be able to point some out that I dont know.)
    I used yellow ochre and graphite for the underdrawing on comic board that has been gesso'd on the back, with a burnt umber wash, and stretched for a day or two. shadows were built up with washes of burnt umber, and details done with burnt umber and pen, highlights made with white prismacolor pencil and further details and such done with black.

    Daaaaamn your only 16 and this good?!
    I wish my school had that many art courses
    My school had no art classes so I fell to the evils of drawing anime when I was younger


    Keep up this pace and you'll be one of the greats in no time

    Here is another drawing step by step I want your opinion. Do you prefer this new rendering style, or the old one?

    id say take the marker instead of the inking hatching stuff. it will keep you in a softer feel and you can block out shapes without them being harsh.

    and if you are only 16, you have a pretty sweet head start on the rest of us. i would study the hell out of anatomy now, that was the main thing i was lackin when i started school.

    You got great stuff going here, definitely on the right track. Awesome to see you're working at getting a grip on the traditional side of things, it will pay off later when you start working more digitally. You've already got a good handle on the basics. Watch the anatomy - if you're intentionally distorting it, make sure it's obvious to the viewer.

    You're at a great start for sixteen, way way way further than I was at the time. If you're not counting on art to make you money right now, the question you should always be asking yourself is "How can I learn more." Right now you should be doing and learning and having as much fun as possible before you need to get bogged down in a more professional approach. Turn on the experimentation switch!

    Anyways, thanks for stopping by my book,
    keep posting!
    cheers!

    RichKid:imo i've found that markers are TOO soft for me, eveything i draw with them looks like theres nothing too it. Thanks, and anatomy studies are a definate, I do alot, they probably just dont really show
    BrendanN: Yeah I really should be doing alot more experimentation and might be able too in the near future. Right now though I really do want to be making some money because im really low on it atm. I cant drive so I cant get a normal job. :/ thanks for the comment!
    algenpfleger: thanks man!

    UPDATE:
    Firstly a wip of a set of 3 paintings. Dont know if anybody really digs abstract stuff or such. This is going to be shown in a little cafe near me.

    and I wasnt going for strict accuracy here, lots of messups in placement of petals and such. Hopefully I can get a quick $20-$30 from this.
