    The woman with the sword is very nice, especially being from imagination! The cloth on her looks great also. The only thing that I see to critique is that, considering the angle of the sword, it seems that more fingers should be shown on the hand holding the sword. Other than that, beautiful work

    really amazing work--only thing I'd take issue with is that holding a sai like that is a good way to get your fingers cut off

    Not bad stuff. Some of your designs have some very nice patterns, but in order to fully express yourself in your drawings you need to get strong basic skills. Get good books on perspective and anatomy and do a lot of drawings from observation. Check the Andrew Loomis books if you have not already. All the basic stuff you need are in his books. Keep drawing!

    Zdravei Maistore!

    I love this concept: http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1205859385

    If you don't mind me trying to do a paintover of it please drop me a note, that's is really a great concept.

    In general you need to work a bit more on capturing the shapes of the humans better. Study photos or even better if you can get into a life drawing class. It all gets better with practice, don't give up!

    Hey bud, I told you I really liked the concept and I worked on it for about 3 hours tonight. Here is the result, not sure I'm done but this should give you some ideas on how to push your images farther:

    Something i noticed in your pencil drawings, get away from smudge shading. Its more difficult at first, but shading with just the point of your pencil gives you alot more control and will help you develop your technique much faster, among other things.

    the robot: try and make its material a bit more specified - if its shiny metal i think it should have some more highlights and so. that would also help getting the pic more interesting.
    last one looks good, liking the contrast that blue does to the black bg and his red body. a little concerned about his jaw that seems a bit too long. my best tip is to imagine the joints and how it all would fit together if it was being closed and opened.

    anyways, really good work with the details in most of your posts, and wooow, liking those hand and eye studies! You have pretty cool ideas and a nice sketchbook, so: keep it up!

    ps, march 10th is my fav i think, its really cool!

    Would he walk upon the water If he couldn’t walk away?
    And would you, Would you carry the torch for me?

    Hey, thanks for the kind words in my SB. You're showing lots of improvement since you started your book. The most recent portrait from April 8th is quite a lot better than your portraits from March 18th, for instance. You're also obviously quite prolific. There's a lot of stuff cropping up here, so you're more enthusiastic with your scanner than I am with mine.

    So, what do you need? Your figures etc are quite elongated, which could be the beginning of a 'style' if you keep pushing it. You'll need to heed several things I get told every so often - your figures need more volume, more roundness in order to seem more 3d. Your tones are good but need to be pushed further.This one is heading in the right direction.

    Your figure drawing is good, but needs to be practised. Also, I assume you're working from photos - I know that's convenient, but you can't beat from practise from life to improve. And you need to copy a few Master drawings. Just google search, or buy some of those cheapy "Dover Art Library" collections of stuff by various masters. They're neat.

    I'll keep an eye your direction. You keep an eye on me. Oh, and do the CHOW's and the POW's and so on. They're great.

    Hey, and thanks for dropping by my sketchbook!

    Great stuff here! I don't really know what to say, cause donalfall pretty much said everything I wish I started anatomy study when I was 14.. ( your latest picture ).

    My only tip would be, keep drawing! don't stop.. if you see something cool that you really feel like "Oh I wish I could draw like that", then try. Copy it, and learn a thing or two by doing it just dont forget to give the original credit, if you upload it somewhere hehe.

    Cheers // DV
