Crit me !!! plz!!!
Almost forgot this one
It was a bet.. A friend of mine said "I'll bet you that you cant draw a girly dragon" Well.. It turned a bit to cute :|
Anywayz.. I'm drawing because I love it.
I draw to many times. Although I'm not following any studies for it, I'm trying best. I know, I do not compare to the big boys... but one day... Really.. One day... I will, not that I'm ambitious or anything
Happy to be here And may the grow of art begin!!!!

<depressed> Yeah... I know... I suck </depressed>
Im no pro or anything so I cant say anything super critic-like.
Only problem I found was on your last one. His big toe on his left foot is on the wrong side. =b
-weilds crit-stick of doom-
For the first, the rat-holding girl her arms look too skinny, in my opinion. Also, I feel like her belt throughs her figure off, and it seems like you tried to show her coat being pinched back together by it, but your rendering of this makes it seemed misaligned. I think if you enhanced the fabric fold above the belt and made the adjustment under less dramatic, this would solve it. On the positive side, I like the way her face was done, as well as her garments. The rat, of course, is cute as intended.
In your next page of sketches, the one that catches my eye most is the side view of the man in the middle, under the monester. Although it could be a concious style choice on your part, his head is too tall and nod widened enough in the back. As the way it is, it gives him character, and a tall slender look, if possibly a bit akward or gangly of limbs (yes, I'm gathering all this from his head, right or wrong =P), but I think if that's the desired effect it's also possible to achieve using a fully-rounded skull. If it's a choice of style, trying it with a more rounded skull if only for comparison purposes, I think is a good idea.
For your goat anther, I think it would look smoother and less like man+goat if you made his legs longer (which I think he should have anyways in porportion to head-size) and thicker with a more human-flavor blend, it would flow together better. Love the head and the skulls, and the over-all concept.
That's all for now, I may give some more constructive criticism later on the others, but reguardless keep up the good work, and I hope to see more!
Taven : Thanx .. working on a little redraw. Although the girl supposed to be skinny I see where youre getting at... Got a lot of work to do But I'll manage.
Frankly, the dudes head.. I just gave it a swing. I don't usually draw those heads them way, but it was late, real late. Honestly, I don't really know how to draw goat thingies. This was something like the 3 time I drew such a thing, I'm currently doing horse studies (Other sketch book, a real one, and that is bigger than the one I use to scan with (A4/A3).
Ekul: OMG!! youre right... I feel like a boob now lol. Thanx will take care to watch the details more closely. What was I thinking....
Any advise on how to make you're Sketch book look snazzy and cool.. Not sure how really.. Should I add some more studies of the human anatomy, add monsters, more boobs (Hmz...), naked lads.. ect, ect?
I lack profound advice in this area, my sketchbook being new itself, but there's a way to put a picture on (as you've no doubt seen from looking at the sketchbook forum) as your thumbnail when it shows up on a list. I'm sure there's a "how-to" somewhere detailing that, or you could message someone to ask.
You can also change your titles to specifiy what updates have been added and when; I've seen this in a few sketchbooks, although it's not really needed if you're updating fairly often.
When your sketchbook gets to be many pages, the first post is usually edited to tell readers to skip to the last page for new things. Also, in a few I've seen eye-catching drawings that include the title of the sketchbook predomiantly displayed.
Some color works would probably be captivating, although in the end I think everyone has their own style for making their sketchbook snazzy and cool, it's a matter of playing aound until you decide that you like it.

Not really an update but, A PLAN
To further my drawing disasters, I will pledge to, redo heads, reconsidering the way I draw heads.
Further define the way I perceive bodies, thus making sure that, looking at my biggest Idol, Leonardo Da Vinci, that they actually look human.
Try to shade and draw more, taking more time for them and not doodling for 5 minutes.
So that is said
The Update.... A few faces
Comment's are alway's welcome
Don't Just look! Comment I Dare you, You will alway's get a response.

Heya. Nice people skecthes. I like the figure of the girl in the second bottom left. Her head looks a bit off to me, but I can't quiet pin-point why. I don't have a ton to say anyways, but thought I'd drop you a comment. Looking forewards to seeing more, as always.
Constructive Criticism welcomed at My Sketchbook!
New And Improved The promised updates (Not that I had promised that... but hey)
So, here they are
anatomy anatomy anatomy. always! it's the only big technique flaw i see. go to life drawing class, go to museums study the old masters (as in renaissance, 1800s french salon and turn of the century modernists). start developing your own personal style, something that comes naturally to you. do i need to say keep drawing?
*passes on crit stick of doom*
This is a bigger drawing Ive made
you're doing some good studies. One thing to think about though when doing copies of things. You tend to make iconic representations of features, instead of trying to see the values/lines that are actually there.
also, because you're segmenting everything, you are forgetting about large shape forms when shading. Render Large shapes THEN small shapes THEN details
keep up the reffed studies to build your visual memory, you'll be fine
<===== NEW ========>
<Panda beast> Thank you, did think about what you meant and tried to render differently and work A-iconecly. Working sins then.
These are my most recent sketches!
Nice anatomy studies in there.
Your weapons up there looks like mine used to do ^^ What I did, was that I sat down with knives and forks (I'm lucky enough to have some decent big awsome detailed knives and a sword as well), and started to look at how light played in the metal. I'm not where I'm supposed to be on that yet, and I've been slacking, but if you do that, you'll see that your weapons start coming out a lot more detailed and more believable. I also had a lot of help looking at photos of weapons from museums and such, to see how they were built up and also, again, how light and shadow played in it. Try it, you'll find you'll get better in no time
Also, the iconic representations, as tex mentioned. You draw what you *think* you see, instead of what you see. I know EXACTLY how it is, I did it myself, as probably did even the best in here when they started out. What I did was that I started to do draw shadows in, for example, trees, before I actually did the outline. I looked at a tree, and drew approximately how the shadows went, THEN I did the rest of it. Might help you too.
Anyways, good start, keep drawing!!!!!

I would suggest experimenting with shading in your graphite work. I am a huge fan of hatching and cross hatching, i think they add interest within the aspect of shading and add tons of texture. Instead of blending, or doing what looks like just using the edge of your pencil, you should give it a try. ps LOVE the big eyed dragon.
