I'm not really feeling the watercolors, the style is to rough for my taste
I really like the first sketch in post #1 though
the details like eyelids and ears give it a lot of naturalism, without you having to add tons of extra information. the shading and the hair is good to, the lines seem to be going in the right directions.
the second sketch is great to, but I'm a bit allergic to extreme angle crosshatching, like for example on the forehead, but in general the shading is very good and I like the sense of different planes one gets.
where do you plan on studying illustration?

i agree with you about the extreme hatching i sort of regret posting that one i am quite keen on the rough style though not necessarily in my work but definetely in other peoples. Im going to uni in sunderland, england cus i want to live in newcastle, cheers for the crits
thanks, i find your work special, its some from evrything. You're right concurning the tip but i've studied on the anatomy and faces far to much. I want to draw some fun again. Now i'm drawing dragons and maybe tomorow a hippo or somthing like that. Just always changing. I do see that i'm realy getting better when i've studdied on the masters work. But for today: TIME FOR FUN. tomorrow: back to studying
P.S.: how old are you? if your drawing so good and saying that you would me better if studied Rafael of your 15 (please answer in MY sketchbook, or i will forget yo look here)
nice sketches, I really enjoy your Raphael study. I did notice that your full forms are based after very chiseled figures, it'd be cool to see how you do with a softer form where you have to make subtle indications of muscle.
I can't wait to see where your art work ends up. You have a good start going with your sketchbook. My biggest crit would be in how you create your forms for your drawings. It feels like you build up your drawing from one small detail to the next instead of getting the overall shape down and then working in to the drawing. This is how it looks, I could be wrong, I'm just trying to read your drawings. But if this is the case, this will help your proportions.
Thanks for commenting on my sketchbook. I made the change you pointed out. Which university are you going to attend?
