    Here be sketches

    Hello CA!

    This is my first post here so I hope everything shows up fine.

    I better start by introducing myself. I'm from Portugal, have 22 years old, and until about 1 year ago I was studying computer engineering (which I kinda hated... ). Then I discovered this wonderfull site and soon I made myself believe I could draw...

    ...so I got out of the computer stuff and started to draw. And I love it. I started with the usual stuff (Bridgman, Loomis, Mattesi, Vilppu...), then I got into a small art-school near my house and only until very recentely did I started to get "happy" enough with my drawings to show them here (you guys scare me).

    So here goes some stuff... and sorry for the crappy quality of the pictures (it's a cellphone camera):

    EDIT: Pics in my second post...

    And thats all for now. Hope to get some crits (I badly need them) cause thats the main reason why I'm here.

    Put some image tag around the links - these

    [IMG]Your links[/IMG]

    That should work.

    Edit: As for the art itself what you've posted is nice; I'm not at a level where I can effectively critique them individually, so the only thing I can impart to you is post more.

    Note: in future you might want to play around with the brightness/contrast of the images before you post them - the links look a little dark. Anyways, post more and good luck!

    Thats what I did

    Edit: Yeah... the brightness/contrast thing... I just formated (is this the correct word?) my PC yesterday so I still don't have any image software installed (besides Paint), thats why I completely forgot about it.

    I'll ulpload better looking pics next time. And thanks for the reply

    Edit: Well, don't know if it's the correct way to do it, but at least now I can see the pictures... I messed around with the brightness\contrast levels and I think this is the better I can make them look for now (cellphone photos and all...).

    I'll also post some new stuff later.

    Here's some more stuff. The last one (the queen) is totally messed up, specially in the hair\crown area, the hands, the prespective and the overall lack of composition. Thats why I din't bothered to finish it... but I'll post it anyway.

    The shading in the apple piece makes it look like it's wearing a sombrero, made me giggle. =D

    Good work all around, though, you've got a good sense for positioning. Looking forward to more.

    ItalianHorsey: Thanks... and yes, I really need to do more value studies couse I kinda suck at them.

    Dan Valkar: Cool! It's always nice to hear good things about our stuff.

    AmontilladoAg: Thanks! That one is one of the few shading studies I made that I was kinda happy with the result.

    Nezumi Works: lol... I think you just gave me an idea for a new character sketch

    And now something I did last night. Only when I looked atthe picture on my PC did I realized that some parts of it are kinda out of shape (like the jar in his head) but I'm too tired to correct it right now.

    how long have you been drawing? your figures are laid out pretty well with the expception of some that have small errors like long arms. (which i'm guilty of too!) also, some of your drawings have a wonderful illustration-y quality (especially the boy hanging off the tree branches, very cute!). have you thought about majoring in illustration or becoming an illustrator? just a thought.

    Thanks eskanto! I started drawing about a year ago... I always had an interest in pretty pictures but only when I found out this site did I started to try to do them myself.

    And illustration is actually my major interest

    Started using watercolor today... and made crap right in the first two figures, but the two in the bottom are a little better, I think.

    Also, I know that the anatomy in the top right one is appaling, specially the right shoulder... what can i say. I suck at drawing figures from 3/4 angles

    edit: and now that I look at her again, I think there's bigger problems with her back and with her left shoulder... :sigh:... guess that having done no anatomy studies at all during the last two or three months dind't help
