    I personally think that your sketches are too smeared. Keep your pencil sharpened and try not to overdo it.

    Cheers.

    Thanks for the comments, guys!

    Liu: I think most of the smeariness of my pencil work can be attributed to me keeping my hand on part of the paper combined with overdoing it. I'll try and keep that to a minimum. For the most part, I make sure my pencils are sharp.

    Green-fire: I really should upload more pencil work.

    ooh man,

    when i look at these i dont feel like you had any picture in your head at all when you were drawing them,

    one of the most important things when drawing from your imagination is to picture your ... picture the whole time ,

    and when drawing from life its the opposite, dont think about it at all

    just draw what you see

    cut out the middle man or you will draw symbols that dont make sense and dont make realistic art

    once your have that covered i think you should back away from neon colors and look toward and earthly palate that doesnt evoke drugs and rock and roll, please, be more original

    AND MOST IMPORTANTLY

    put your heart into it man, you gotta work at it or nothin good will come,

    the things i see here are half assed

    no offense, you can pull it together everybody can

    Don't worry, man.

    It was a little harsh, yes, but it was brutally honest. And besides, I thought it posed some pretty good points.

    Anyways, I found Elwell's post on edges and used it as a reference for this little doodle.
    EDIT: I just saw the new Reference forum on the front page. Just another of the grocery list of reasons why I absolutely love this site.

    I think you nailed a couple of your main weaknesses here. I really really like your pencil work. Keep up with what your doing, your on the right track.

    Hi ninjacat11!
    whoah..you have quite a lot of sketches here!
    my fave would have to be the energy zombie..
    cool idea..a zombie full of energy!
    My advice though would be to take more time on the sketches,
    doing fast sketches for the sake of doing fast sketches may be fun and all, but taking a little more time on even a sketch will help you absorb/learn as you draw...
    I dont mean become a super slow sketcher..maybe the correct word would be
    a more "focused" sketcher.
    and thanks for dropping by my SB!
    I'll drop in from time to time!

    I SWEAR ON THE GRAVES OF ALL THE TALENTED FILIPINO ARTISTS WHO HAVE GONE BEFORE ME, THE FILIPINO ART LEGACY WILL CONTINUE!

    your work is cool although it is a little rough around the edges maybe pass some eraser over the work when you are finished.

    Some new sketches. It'll be a long time before the third and sixth pictures can be called finished. Wanted to give you a peek at the stage it's at now. And yes, that gun-looking thing was drawn from ref.

    Also, some little drawings using pictures from female-anatomy-for-the-artist.com as reference. It's the closest I'll be getting to a life drawing class for quite a while.

    DSG 1363 and a sketch of a giant construction-type mech. Does anyone have an idea of how to get some textures on the third picture? Like some dirtied metal surfaces.

    Hey man, welcome to the SSG

    As a whole, I really think your pencil work has a ton of potential. Your studies and character concepts all look good, but a few things are bringing em down:

    1. Tighten up those lines! Keep em clean and smooth.
    2. Use mechanical pencils. If you don't have any, definitely get some, they make everything easier
    3. Especially on your characters, use a simple stick figure to map out your pose before you start. That way you can concentrate on your design, and it'll keep them from coming out in awkward poses(eventually you wont have to do this, but till then its a real time and quality saver).


    As for your digital work, this tutorial is basically the best. It covers all the ideas you need to understand in a simple and entertaining way. All the specific critiques I have have already been mentioned, but I think this will really help you out(if you've read it before, its just as good the second time )

    Anyway, looking forward to more work!

    In actuality, I've used mechanical for quite a few of my sketches. Same with the stick figures.

    And it is a shame I haven't checked out that tutorial more. I get linked to it all the time, see it once, and forget where it is. Oh well. Guess I'll haveta stop doing that.

    And now for something completely different.

    A collage with a nature theme I did for the Ringling application. Tried to go for a nature versus industrialization theme.

    Hey, welcome to the SSG. Hello, hi, etc.
    Cool drawings -- looks like you've improved since the beginning of the thread. It could be the scans, but IMO you might benefit from more use of sketching lines in some situations, and then building up the value from there.
    Anyway, just keep at it...

    hey, hey, welcome to the SSG!

    i think your pencil sketches are alot stronger than the paintings here. i like that you spend time on shading them, but i'd suggest drawing them bigger and looser. with more thought on proportions.

    Hey there Ninjacat! :3
    I assume you like critiques (hey, who doesn't!) so here goes.

    If I may be presumptuous here, I get a feeling from a lot of your work that you tend to zone in on nitty gritty details quickly and maybe overlook the drawing or painting as a whole. Think in terms of big! Do gestures and thumbnails to layout pencil drawings. When you're doing a digipaint, do an abstract first - nail the big shapes, and divide them into dark darks and bright highlights RIGHT AWAY! Don't muck around with your colour choices, punch em in as soon as possible. Speed paint then whittle it down into a more finished product.
    Use big brushes over small, because you can render the most gorgeous, intricate thing, but if the overall form doesn't read, nothing can compensate for that.
    Great that you're doing studies, just keep them up! And remember, the more something frustrates you and kills you with challenge, it just means it'll make you that much of a better artist.
    There's a tutorial I'm thinking of that would probably benefit you a bit, but I can't recall where on the internet it is. I'm going to poke around for it and message you if I find it.
    Keep on trucking, and work hard because nothing good comes easily!

    Ryn--Thanks. I'm going to definitely keep those crits in mind. Also, if you could find that tutorial, that would be so awesome.

    jedininjaman--Thanks. I do really need to bust out the anatomy books again, now that I think about it.

    Decided to give my WIP mullet man a horrible outfit to match his horrible hairstyle.

    Also, I did some little sketches and studies.
