    Sketches from a Computer Scientist. updated April 10th

    After years of neglecting art I've decided to give it another go

    Haven't had the time to take an art class with work and all so I'm trying to learn as much as I can online before putting some money down for some night classes.

    The work I have here I've done over the past two weeks.

    more random sketches.

    I'm in desperate need of criticism and feedback as I don't really have anyone I can ask for advice. Obviously these sketches dont match anywhere near the quality of work on this site.. but I'm hoping with enough practice I might be able to one day achieve a fraction of the greatness I've seen on this site.

    I'm open to any scathing criticisms I'd really like to find out main areas of concern so I can work on them gradually.

    I just recently ordered a bunch of bridgman's anatomy books and I'm looking for a way to work in a class within my working schedule.

    I see that aside from the joy of drawing naked women, you've found the joy of perspective.

    Nice work! ^_^

    Hi there! I'm gonna tell you what I think about your drawings soy you have another opinion to contrast ^^

    First of all, You got the right domain on proportions and form, perspective isn't of either, but I would recomend some more face practising, I'm not a maniac of anime style ( in the negative sense) but, I think you should try to give them a more realistic look, and try to improve your domain on the diferent face perspectives. ( that's actually what I'm working on)

    Maybe a little of human anatomy would do miracles, because you got te right sense, so, with some more anatomy you would kick some asses.

    I also think that working some more on expresions would be good, and try to make all you figures look a little more relaxed, like, less rigid.

    Well, I don't have any more constructive critics to give , so I'll say that you got a lot of potential and if you develop it right we're gonna be tripping with your art in a few months dude, see you, and hope have been usefull to you

    thanks a bunch . Yeah I'm working on making my faces less anime-ish.. I guess its a by product of watching so much of it when I was younger.

    On the expressions front, yeah I gotta get more than the same deadpan look Hopefully once I get the Bridgman books I ordered It'd help out more.

    Thanks again for the constructive criticism .

    thanks . Yeah I'll work on de-animeing my style lol.

    I haven't really done much portraits from life.. I'll start practicing faces from references. Hopefully that'll work out well.

    Looking very nice! I actually think you blend an anime style with realistic anatomy quite well, but I might suggest drawing another male as I can only count 1 hehe

    There sure are alot of naked girls here. ^^;

    I would suggest some work on the anatomy, there seems to be somthing funky going on in the mid section. And I would work on the faces too, They all look the same. I have that problem sometines too.

    Mosthorribleyet>> Thanks . Yeah I'm going to be moving onto the guys soon.. just want to get the girls to a more satisfactory level.


    Some quick(5 mins) hopefully more realistic faces. I need to learn how to properly value a realistic styled face :p.

    Your girls are so beautiful, I really love the last post you made. Your poses are interesting and rather good too! If this is you art after "years of neglecting art", I can only imagine how good your older stuff are. :3

    thanks again all for your comments and suggestions.


    I've been experimenting with drawing buildings and what not.. mostly rough sketches since I tend to lose focus and attention from time to time :p.

    holy crap man your definately on the right track to success! you strive for technicality and your style leaves room for fun. I can see you enjoy drawing because of the things you are drawing (women) =p keep up the good work i'm enjoying the dynamic poses

    Just draw your ass off. Whatever you do, don't -- stop -- drawing...

    Hey Impr,

    Another CompSci guy right here!

    You have some nice drawings here, and definitely have some skills.

    I'd agree with Suira--you should work on faces. Specifically, your three-fourths views tend to put the rear eye out of place. Take special care to note the position of that eye as it relates to the tip of the nose (for instance) and the other facial features. It may help you correct that mistake.

    Good luck!

    Very good work! I see that you have talent and a lot of potential. I would like to see you clean them up some more. A cleaner look would go great with your style.

    Your main weakness is your guys; they don't have that strength that your women have. I would say that your picture of the guy in the jacket has too big of a hip. His shoulders are very low too, is he slouching? If he is, I think the stomach would go in more. His pants and his sleeves are also not very believable. His crotch seems to droop down too low. Pants usually droop down, unless you wanted them to flare like that for dramatic effects. The sleeves should be tighter also. Sorry if I'm harping too much about just a sketch.

    Your drawings of guys remind me of Hyung-Tae Kim, which isn't good because he really distorts their hips, making them very wide and feminine. Study up on anatomy more and study how the body looks in clothes. Try looking at your own clothes and see how they fold and stretch.

    So you're actually a computer scientist? Thats very cool that you have one very right brained interest, and another very left brained interest.

    Your architectural renderings are pretty solid, but looks like you should use some reference for you figures. (As I am assuming this is the difference maker.)

    ryusenka thanks for the suggestions.. yeah I definately need to work on my guys more, and I'll definately try to clean up my lines. I fall into the habit of taking the easy way and making my lines more vague and sketchy to let my brain fill in the gaps.


    Sublimus: yeah my human form is far from ideal still :/. Thinking of picking up a wooden figure.

    Imp: Cool girlies you got here, I'd like to see a range of poses and body types too. Are you going for an American-anime type look or are you going to push these in another direction? ;-)

    My advice would be to stay away from color for the moment until you are completely ready to devote some time into it. Color theory and practice is not an easy topic to tackle and it'll require a lot of time. You have the skill to draw people proportionally accurate and your perspective work is right on the money, but color needs more attention. If you get a chance to, go down to the mentoring section or crit section and get some more help on that.

    Other than that, clean up those lines (look at danielc, kresh, nonie, squidmonk3j, hurricane) and see how they all use lines.

    tweaked the guy in the suit

    and a preliminary pic of a girl holding an axe(work in progress).. need to make it look like she has more muscle strain now since right now it looks like she's kind of just hanging from the axe.

    I really like your dynamic poses in post three, very nice.
    You put in a base color in your drawings before coloring them, makes them stand out a little more.
    And I really like how you work your pencil. Looks very rough, secure and dynamic, a very strong point in your art, cause I see alot of people that's good, but they lack that "punch" in their linework, but it looks like you've got it. reminds me a little about Bengal;

    Keep it up

    Please take the time to give me some constructive criticism in my Sketchbook
