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!
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:
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!

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
those figure studies are real nice to see. Real improvement from the first post to the last one. Keep up the good work
Thankyou for stopping by my sketchbook!
It's seen how much time you've put into your pictures, and it's really impressive! Your anatomy-studies did good and alot of improvement is shown since you did them! Keep it up!
Ps. Love the last picture!
Thanks for visiting my SB. You're improving quite a bit, and you're still scanning enthusiastically. I'll try and give some help....
The woman who is holding a fan a few posts back looks really good. Her back and butt look well studied, but the face just needs to be improved out to the same quality. The guy with the gun beside her looks a bit lumpen, and his arms and hands are a little oversized, but its heading in the right direction too. Examine some pictures of real hardware - guns and helmets - and see how they look. The anatomy studies are looking well, but you have to keep pushing them for improvement if you want realism. You tend to make the heads too small for the rest of them.
The winged girl is showing how much you're improving. Again, her back, butt and arms are well realised.... but..... if a human had wings, would they look like those? Your wings here kind of stick out from under her armpit, more like gliders than a flier - a flying bird depends on flexing the wing at different points to fly.
I always imagine winged humans as having either a seperate limb coming from their back that is a wing, or else having them attached to the arm the whole way down. I guess what I'm saying is ref some wings and decide how it would work if you want the concept to carry through the picture.
You should try a few pics where you keep the outlines light - almost invisible - and let your shading work as the content. Just give your outline work a lighter touch.
It's all good though man, your book is looking really well. Cheers!
dude your skill jumped a hefty percentage on this page great stuff! I like the shading on that grim gunslinger fellah- cheers
Good Studies you have a gret imagination keep on drawing man your improving alot.
thanks for the constructive thoughts, I definitely agree. Keep up the drawing its looking really good and keeping drawing from life, it'll help you out a ton. And wow your monster and creatures are pretty rad, you definitely have some good ideas.
"If you ever give your best... well give it better"-Maniac...
Big improvement like others have already said haha
Some constructive crit real quick
On the guy with the gun it feels as though his torso and upper half of his body is turned towards the right while his legs are aimed more towards the left
His right arm I think has the same problem, upper half not matching the lower half
Keep em coming
eey, i had never seen your work but like it much. its very scary and realistic (in a draw way not the real reality of cource)
Nice sketchbook you got here! You're showing lots of improvement already so keep up the studies and draw from life more!! I think it's pretty rad that you're only 13 and have a passion for drawing. If you keep it up, you'll be very good down the road when it really matters. Good luck!
your level of detail and your rendering is good, however it is clear you need to work on the very basics of drawing, such shape and form, as alot of your images seemed skewd.
good luck man
Nice work here. Your ideas are fun to look at and I'm glad I took the time to see see the vast progression from your first post to the current post. Although, I couldn't shake the feeling that your drawings were still a bit 2D and ridgid. I've noticed that you had started giving them a bit more depth around post #48 and onwards.
As far as rendering goes, a prime example of where you could give your pictures a bit more depth woud be in post #38, if you focussed on applying darker areas to the places that need it most (for instance, find where the light source is and make darker the parts that are in shadow) then they would have more of an impact on the viewer by giving more depth. As others have said, 'draw from life' more to get accuracy in your figures.
The clown is quality by the way, seeing pictures like that shows that you're starting to be more fluid with your work.
Good luck dude. Carry on drawing!
I like that last guy who has 'camoflage' against his background. Pretty sweet. THe way you've been pushing on with you theme is good too, and you're getting steadily better. Keep up the good work!
Hey Clanlord, there is a definite improvement on these since the first page. Keep hacking at them! I really like the portrait of the guy with the mustache. I think the eyes are a tad too big and the outline for the nose is too sharp BUT it is a big step up for you. Keep it up and thanks for visiting my SB
