    Joseph's Drawings. [Occasional Nudity]

    Well... I'm here for some honest critique on my sketches, which I had a hard time getting back on my DeviantArt account...
    Be simple, be brutal, tear it apart, piece by piece, and the next pic in this thread will be at least twice as good as this one, which isn't saying much, but hey, it's a start.

    Here's the sketch.

    I look forward to your advice.

    Not as bad as you make it out to be
    But it's not enough! To get better critique you'll need to post alot of sketches in one go so that folks can get a better idea of where you're at as an artist. That's all I can say for now!

    Decided to start updating this thing, again. I'll get right on those sketches, Slothboy, I appreciate the encouragement. I'll try to update this sketchbook as frequently as possible.

    Here's a couple of sketches I've done just now, from Gray's Anatomy, and a few other internet references.

    ColorExcursion, thanks for the advice, but that first drawing was made more than a year ago. I think I've worked on my little hairy line problem, since then, though I still have some trouble getting a line to go the way I want.

    Some more just now sketches:
    Thirty seconds each.

    Two different construction styles on the same pose. The one on the left is based on cylinders, the one to the right is based on angular shapes.

    dude cool start for your sketchbook your drawings could use some more contrast or darkend more. Id just throw over an adjustment layer in photoshop for it.
    keep it up looking forward to seeing your journey

    You really got the motion down in those pelvic thrusts!

    Great gestures. once youv've got that down I'd say work on the proportions more.

    Omert, I don't own a copy of photoshop, but I will try to darken my lines. Journey, eh? I like the sound of that.

    Thanks, Gogo. As we all know, there is no thrust quite like a pelvic thrust.

    I'll make the study of proportions my top priority, Slothboy.

    Oh, proportions. Fun. The following picture was referenced from an Andrew Loomis drawing.

    The tricky thing about proportions is how a single miscalculation can set off an entire picture, as evidenced by the above. The next is a fifteen minute drawing referenced from a photograph on Characterdesigns.com.

    Finally, some doodles from the imagination.

    Hey, does anyone who isn't computer illiterate (as I am) know how I could shrink these pictures so that they are less massive? It's kind of an eyesore.

    Sorry about the lack of updates, recently. It's been a long week.

    Thanks North, I've started drawing in pen until I can comfortably get darker lines down in pencil. I love your stuff, by the way.

    Thirty seconds each.

    These are studies I made last August. Compare these to my modern stuff. What gives? I've been slowly deteriorating.
