    Hey man, good to see you followed through with opening a sketchbook.
    I like those mountains at the top, thats probably your most complete enviro at the moment imo. (Though im not an environmental artist ;o)
    Ide work on tones and studying other artists methods of making nice looking environments, maybe even draw some environments from life. It'll help heaps, and try do most of your stuff on paper with no lines.. unless your using the lines for measuring or something It takes away from the effect a little. But it's good to see your here and keep it up man

    Hey Welcome - keep it up and draw, draw, draw - try setting aside pages to practice on and do some studies ...your hands, feet, arms, legs (if possible other people if they'll stay still long enough for a quick sketch or two!) and objects around you. Study how light falls and creates shadow from different shapes to help give 'body' to your images (the football, flag and mountains are a start - well done!)... ...but really start to look at everything 'see' what basic shapes each detail is like and how it all fits together.

    I'm liking the wolves and the first pic as it shows you're 'feeling' the space and 'volume' of your image not just placing flat drawings

    I look forward to seeing you post more - you got skills now let's see you nurture them!

    oh yeh - enjoy, experiment and have fun!

    thanks i'll get more drawings up soon, i tryin to learn to draw people
    also i learned alot about not drawing flat, before all my works were flat drawings, no badckgrounds, then i learned to get backgrounds by drawing far away things small and close things, big.

    I know it's pencil...but it lacks contrast....could just be me...

    Ninjas and their related paraphernalia pretty much rock.

    Rock on...and be excellent

    Good too see you update man, First thing you need is an extremely brief crash course in basic shading... and I'm no expert, but I did a quick paint over of what I think it needs.. Practice some object around you, If you have a lamp - turn off your lights and aim the lamp at the object. Sketch from different angles, and take at LEAST 10 minutes on each sketch... really observe the shape and contours of the object. If you don't have a lamp, just try your hardest to make some shadows cast on it. Your doing good, keep it up

    yea yea i know

    ok the little desert thing was something i did cause i was bored, really dont mean much

    the weapons once again i got bored so i just drew some swords.

    the person this is probably the best person i have ever done, i used pictures of real people for details then added in my own things, i took 30mins of quick sketches, and then a couple of hours of checking to make shure everything was looking right and sketching in more details, then i finished it all up....kinda, still need to add the feet

    The guy is looking good! Keep up the anatomy study and you'll be drawing ace figures in no time Also if you like drawing weapons, read up on how they work - there is quite some detail into the weight and size of all the different elements of a sword that makes that 'work' and useful, If you can incorporate them into your sketches it will look heaps better Keep it up man

    The first one was how the guy started, the second is how he finished, i'm not happy with how he finished, and i'll re-do it once i've learned more of the human anatomy and can draw rocks and stones better cause hes spose to be a stone guy

    Hey! Nice to see you have some scenery, I nneed to do more scenery to improve my backgrounds. I've always hated backgrounds. Anyway, it seems you could improve on your anatomy a bit. Why don't you try studying where bodyparts are placed in accordance to other parts? It helped me a lot because it pretty easy for me to remember. You may want to purchase an anatomy book, I don't know what a good one would be the one I have is "Giovanni Civardi's Complete Guide to Drawing" which is basically a mixture of all the components of drawing (shading, anatomy,landscapes, and the steps to doing those) but I don't know how good it is when compared to other books. But you're doing well, just keep practicing and you'll be top-notch in no time!

    Nice work so far. It's nice to see you're working on studying anatomy. Your proportions are a bit off, but with a bit of work, they could turn out really good. I would suggest adding more contrast to your pictures, keeping at those anatomy studies, and adding values.

    Already seeing improvement here.

    Cool! It's awesome to see someone else just starting out too.

    If I might - on the last one, I think it helps in practice if you draw the whole figure - with feet.

    Cheers!

    Good work, its nice to see someone trying hard to get better ^^

    Try drawing more of an underdrawing, figuring out of the basic shapes and structures of the person you want to draw before going to the outline. It will help your figures look more alive.

    As for the girl, the things I notice most is that her hips are too thin, try comparing how wide they are compared to the shoulders. Also you seem to make your torsos too long. Keep working!

    Cool Drawing, Just a few things:
    Legs look like they need to be a bit longer and have a bit more mass
    Check your center of balance - It will make him look more sturdy and real.

    Your doin good man
