    More contrast is needed! If your scanner is mean to ya, press Ctrl+L in photoshop!

    Keep up with the anatomy studies!

    You seem to outline your stuff way too much. It really takes away from the image. Especially on your more realistic images where the highlighted areas are your lines are way too strong. Try softening your lines up everywhere. It will be more attractive to the eye (at least mine) without the stroke. Keep at it!

    hey thanks man, im currently getting that under control, but each comment and critique i learn and gain more knowledge from. also thanks for dropping by my sketchbook.

    Here is a back study, also more shading and contrast i hope thank you, but as for the lightest shade the scanner happens to take that out from some reason. i think it would be the graphite reflecting some of the light back, having turning the paper at and angle you can see some sort of shine. any tips on getting that shine out? tell me what you think?

    I want to give proffesional opinion but I can't because I'm not a professional.I can only say what I think - I find that the shading is great!

    I went through the whole thread and read that for most of your works you don't use reference and you draw from what you see in your head which I find for a awesome skill; that's what a real artist needs! Keep it!!!

    As for the quality of mediums ( it was mentioned somewhere in the previous pages)- if you can do wonders with the cheap ones, you will be able to do it with the expensive as well ! The skill is the thing one can't buy and you have the skills and the talent, so keep them and train them to perfection!

    What I think.

    That last back study is *nice*. If your progress continues at this rate, you'll be making serious money soon . I wouldn't have thought the muscle studies from your Feb. 17th(?) post and that back study, 3 days later, were done by the same artist over a difference of a couple of days. I don't know how to solve your scanner problems. Buy a better one? that's going to be my plan, personally speaking...

    thank you for checking out my whole thread, some people just zip by to the last page and blab out some weird stuff lol. and thanks for the well put together compliments. as for my artwork not being of no reference, its really hard for me to come up with ideas, thats why i get stumped in some places and i stare at a blank page trying to make out images. i guess thats what a real artist needs indeed.

    hey thanks for the comment, but i cant buy a new scanner not until i get a job lol. but im slowly progressing with my shading, hopefully i can buy another load of B pencils and get those darks the darkest. i only hope for my progress to be better tomorrow as it was yesterday but more clearer.

    Hey, how's it going

    The first image in post 34 is sweet, nice and creepy. I also quite like the owl, and the ninja turtles always rock.
    The figure in post 59 is very well done, probably my favorite in here.
    You're developing your lighting/rendering skills quite nicely. Keep it up, and try out different techniques often.

    As to crits:
    I'd suggest, instead of spending loads of time rendering single, cropped figures, that you do a lot of full-figure gesture drawings and anatomy studies from life, as these will improve your figures quite nicely.
    Don't concentrate on making them photo-realistic so much as capturing the form and flow of the human body. You've got to get the human figure (male and female ) into your muscle memory, and keep it there with constant practice. As a bonus, it'd give you more art to post


    Speaking of which, check out the rules of the Sketchbook forum:

    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=38582

    rule 2 = "Don't make "bogus" posts that are meant to "bump" your thread to the top of the list. We want art."

    It'd also be much easier to scroll through what work you have posted, and comment on it, if there were more than one or two posts with art on each page
    Don't worry; comments will come with time, no matter what your skill level is; and they'll definitely be coming if you stuff the pages and posts full of art, as there will be more to critique, comment on, and suggest.


    Draw all the time, draw from life, concentrate on what you need to improve, and don't worry about style or quality - those things will come quite naturally as long as you are always drawing, and improvement will come steadily, with exponential epiphanies to bump it along its way.
    oh, here's my sketchbook.

    Also, my website. It would get beat up in a fight.

    hey thanks man for the rule warning i guess i should start reading things more lol. thanks for the tip on the body of flow and movement. the reason i study is to get my drawing right once i have that down i can start learning on the movement on things, but ill take your advice and start learning the flow of the human body and such.

    hey good stuff. in terms of critique, anything i say, i also say to my self. Try to work from life as much as possible and i think working towards seeing in value as opposed to line would do you and me much good. I really liked your self portrait and some of the surreal stuff knocked my socks right off!!! keep it up
