Ok so I'm doing a sketchbook for the first time and would like some feed back if the good people don't mind.
I like to morph human and animal and the last is a picture of two undead souls that are now immortal.

I'm glad to see that you got a SB up and running! You have some interesting concepts here, I can't wait to see what your future drawings and sketchbook entries look like!
I'm eating a green skittle right now...sorry I'm REALLY tierd, I'll critique you more tommorw M'kay!
Ok, on your last pictutre, the boys hips are just up a little too much. I'm not really an expert at anatomy yet, so If I could get a second opinion from someone else that would be great!, but the boys hips, I don't think that they would be very much visible behind the females.
The butterfly has a nice design, and a lot of personal touch! but the backgrond needs work! the eyes are too flat, and don't "wrap around the skull" to give it more of an 3d, curved look. Unless you were going for the flat look???
You seem to be good at bodies, but maybe some still life drawings, or anatomy of the face? I'm not sure how set you are on doing pictures from your head, but you should be able to reserve your style, even tough studying anatomy. Just an understanding of facial structure will help in your "who wants to live forever" picture. I don't like to "bash the anime style" but I can't help but imageining what that picture would look like without those "V" faces!
Hope my crits are worth something! (I'm stilla little self concious about leaveing crits were I am so new to the forums myself!)
i love your work. very dark i cant recommend any improvements, keep up the good work
Ok well thanks for the feedback and here's two more. I'm kinda on a fantasy kick here lately and trying my hand at it.
By the way....Vhan are my proportions better on these girls?
Ok, I'll crit you
On your first drawing you did a nice job on the face, and the sholders are high up, so you did a good job of portraying the "taken aback "shrug" of don't look at me" erm...pose! But the Arm in the foregraound is a little bit to relaxed for that kind of tension in the sholder. Or, you could just ease the sholder down, and it should look more natural. You also might want to raise the background sholder up, just a tad.
On the same picture, I would also look at the foreground hip, it tucks in just a little too sharp. On a final note, just under the forground elbow, (lower right corner, of the right breast) upi have that line that pulls to the back, and allmost makes your fairy look a little hunchbacked. I would pull the torso out more, and give her a little more back, so the anatomy between the torso, back and wings evens out just a little bit more.
The second one has some really nice cloth textures on it (and Oh! I'm so jelous! lol, Jk) The pelvis is just a little off. I keep looking at it and scratching my head, because there isn't much indication of how her body is turned/ turning...It is a really akward posistion, considering how that spine may be rotateing, but I could just be reading the picture wrong.
Yeah I saw the thing with the hips on my elf too.
It is weird.
Thanks Vhand for all the advice and I will be sure to take it into comsideration!
Hey there! You've got some nice stuff and some great potential... Also, your hair rocks!
I think what you need to focus on right now is anatomy and gesture. Maybe you should do some drawings from life... Just sit in a public space and draw random people. It'll help you to create lifelike figures. Keep things like gravity and muscle/fat placement in mind to draw poses that feel more real!
Keep up the good work...
HEY LOOK AT DIS
hey Glynn! I like your style, you seem to have a good grasp of anatomy imo... my only beef with you is id like to see those characters within a composition! they look good standalone and im sure a setting can do them nothing but a lot of good!
Keep posting ^^ ill b back ;P
Hiya, cool sketchbook.
I must say that I really like the 1st drawing in your last picture post.
I would really love to see that fairy in an environment or something.
Will update sometime soon.
Yeah I'll work on the enviroment thing and draw some stuff in context with tree and stuff. I thought about that too. ^_^ Thanks guys...gonna update soon.
So I said I would update and do some enviroment stuff. Here you go then. ^_^
This one is a fairy....the eviro. is in the background.
This one is a huge forest with a traveler guy in it.
Hey I'm popping in here by way of the girlie forum. Why don't you color your pencil work? I think the last one can fulfill the potential it has to be a really nice pic if you paint/color it. Also, I noticed your concerened with getting some of the proportions right on some of your figures...you should try posemaniacs and do the thirty second excersizes. They help if you do them regularly.
I just don't color them because I don't like coloring. I could try but the other times I did came out as a horrible mess. My artwork just seems to do better pencil and shades. I'll try though. And yeah, I'll put up some anatomy and figure studies.
What I see so far is good. You've got a good grasp on proportions, although your hands could use a little work at times. (your second to last image, the arm with the bird on it... the hand looks a little off) In addition to figure studies, maybe do a few pages of hands in different poses... it will make drawing them a LOT easier.
How often do you draw? I only ask because these drawings are few and far between... if you draw a little bit every day, you are bound to improve.
Also, don't be afraid to branch off into color! (I used to only work in pencil myself) Just practice it... If you're worried about ruining a piece, make a photocopy of it and practice (like a coloring book).
good luck! Keep posting!!
Well I don't draw as much as I could and should as I'd like to. I'm also in the process of moving too though. They will probably come faster after I get moved and such.
time for an update?
I SWEAR ON THE GRAVES OF ALL THE TALENTED FILIPINO ARTISTS WHO HAVE GONE BEFORE ME, THE FILIPINO ART LEGACY WILL CONTINUE!

MY ANGRY SKETCHBOOKhttp://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...129015&page=13
The forest is well rendered and the different plants are very imaginative, but I had to hunt around for the sleeping traveller. Maybe next time you could try to try to use tonal contrast/composition to bring forward the areas of interest in your drawings?
"Admitting that free man may err, in no way invalidates the importance of his ability to decide for himself."
"laws that forbid the carrying of arms . . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes . . . Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."
I like your drawings
Why don't you do colored stuff? Once you feel you improve you never wanna stop and keep on going , it seems you're already really good at light and shadow tones.
Keep on drawing, cya
Yay I love the one with the background and the last picture as well. The environment looks quite mystical. ^^
Also you do a good job modeling with values, the lights and darks in the forest really pop.
Will update sometime soon.
