    Cool stuff, mang. Watch out for you proportions. On some of these imgs you put the calf muscle to far down on the leg or make the breasts to far apart.

    Your stuff looks great; I like your buildings and indoor sketches the most - they seem more loose, colourful and expressive in line and composition. As well as watching proportions, I'd like to see your method of loosely sketching locations applied to your figure study work.

    A lot of your anatomy studies have a confident, structured and angular look that's unfortunately missing from your female figure drawings. Apart from heavily rendering portraits of women, you could analyse and structure your female figures inside-out, and give them more of an edge or a stronger prescence by using angled lines instead of an overall soft linear look. I hope this helps!

    You graced my sketchbook with a critique?? Why, I'm honored. :3 No better way of saying it. I love your stuff! There's such variety in your work, Ian, from what you draw, to what tools you use, to how you use them...
    I even love your scenery designs. Good Bridgman studies, too. I'll keep an eye on your stuff -- I could learn something! Keep it up!

    Great collection here...I have the sudden urge to run off and try to fatten my sketchbook now. Sorry, I guess that's not very helpful to you, but thanks for sharing!

    Ryn: I'm gonna answer your post in my other sketchbook here just to get things moving in the right direction. You're definitely right about the rendering still! Trying to bump up my rendering and value further so they aren't as flat. Good call with using boundary boxes to layout the perspectives of characters within environments... I totally understand what you're saying there and I think it'll be a great help. Update your sketchesss!! Thanks for the crits, miss!

    Kaffinated: Good call on the proportions, that's always a critique everyone should listen to... always watch the proportions! Thanks, man.

    Euphemism: Being an architecture major doesn't provide many opportunities to sketch people, which is something I'm hoping to change with this! Thanks for checking in.

    ohnojenny: Wow, thanks so much haha. Not sure if I'm actually honorable yet but wow! Glad you liked it!

    gardenrusalka: Thank you kindly

    Hadesdream: Then go! Run! Flatten! Draw! Thanks for stopping by.

    Spent some time with George, did a hatching exercise, and started working on some COW prelim ideas. This week's topic is "Shave it, baby!" and my concept for the creature is some massive, slow-moving thing, enormous in size that lives in the coldest seas, growing ice (much like a glacier to give you a sense of scale) from its skin in which the humans in the near future will rely on for fresh, unpolluted water! I like the thumbnail in B4 the most, something flat and massive with frozen tendrils and parts underneath it that gets carried around in the currents. Quite the passive creature

    thank you for stopping by my sketchbook!

    you've got a nice clean style. everything looks very controlled, which is a thing i appreciate!

    on your chow - the idea sounds very interesting, nice interpretation of shaving! i find thumb B4 a bit boring - i would love to see a creature designed of C3! C4 would be my runner-up.

    Whoa, impressive SB. Really impressive. Initially I thought the first few of your work were scans from anatomy books! Your studies are so accurate and obviously time-consuming, I bet they're paying off every day.

    I don't feel like I'm in a place to crit your work, so I'll just leave this comment with plenty of sugar instead I hope you'll keep on updating regularly, this is great stuff!

    You're welcome, man!
    I don't know how I missed you were an architecture student, I'm one myself! So I know a bit about them technical and precise drawings, heh Good to see how you use that skill into your fine arts.

    A bit off-topic here, but since you mentioned that, I find it so odd how lately people studying that hardly can draw. That used to be so fundamental! In my class we're only about 3 or so that can do decent human figures, with myself as the biggest enthusiast. Seems quite crucial to me to understand the human body and its needs, considering how all architecture is designed for humans. What's that about? We only had one drawing course, doubt there'll be more.

    Ah, sorry about that rant, just ain't that many architecture students here on CA that I can converse with Just so this isn't a completely pointless post, I'm gonna tell you again that your work is wonderful. If your fine art is not as strong as your arch stuff, well, then I can only expect that you're receiving awards daily for your buildings Heh, keep it up the great work.

    Jellies!

    Oh, Arkytexture. I'm disciplined in Animation, but I hope we can find some common ground. Righto...

    I like your Glacial monster studies! And something of a jellyfish nature would be really cool, like in the diagram you mentioned at B4: jellyfish don't normally leave behind a skeleton after they die and/or fossilized. That's one method in how humans could live on it's icy gatherings without being aware of its prescene! Woo... Now I'm scared. This should be good. Ahem. You could also research and refer to urban legends of undiscovered undersea creatures and USOs (Unindentified Submerged Objects, as opposed to UFOs ). The jellyfish idea could be a hit, and I'd like to see you develop it more...

    Great looking work in here! Love your studies. When you have reference you are pretty spot on. It shows a good, analytical eye.
    Can't wait to see more from you!

    thanks for stopping by again! Every time I look in here, I am amazed by your studies. I wish I had the time to do stuff like that, and at that quality.
