Hello. This is my little corner of the internet in sketchy form. For some strange reason my thumbnail just won't work no matter how many times I edit it, so if anyone has a clue on fixing that the info would be appreciated.
Little bit about me - I'm almost 20 now, and I have been drawing seriously since last year. I'm studying design and illustration, and hoping to learn more since my course does not focus on illustration that much even though it's supposed to count for 50%. In fact, I'm the only person in it right now that I know of even considering moving into the field and away from the whole corporate logo stuff and whatnot. But hey, doesn't hurt to know both, right?
I have started experimenting with digital media about 2-3 months ago, so I'm feeling a little swamped and lost right now, and with all the information on CA it's overwhelming, but I'm hoping I'll be finding new ways to improve.
And yeah, have fun and be as brutal as you like.

Okay, so dumping the old stuff from the first post in this one. Anyway, in the sketches, just ignore the cartoony thing, someone asked me for that style, and I really did not enjoy it so I'm gonna avoid making stuff like that.
Also, the 3 here are my very very first attempts at digital stuff. Be gentle

The Digital work isn't bad at all, I can't really comment much on that though as I have zero experience with Digital Media. As for the life studies, well you can never get too much of it. Just keep at it and progressively you'll iron out the flaws. I personally like the way you've done the hand, though a bit of shading would help. Maybe through mark-making? (Hatching/Cross-hatching)
Ok, due to personal reasons, I have found some stuff out, and figured other stuff out, and suddenly BAM!!! I can draw again! I have not felt this excited about doing sketches every day in over 2 years!
Pencil sketches. The first had reference, the wolf a life-drawing (yes, I got to play with wolves! weee!) and the third a helmet thing I saw in a weapons show that I tweaked in my own way. I'm bad with technical stuff so I think I needed the practice. =)
Here's some pen sketches. First page is just doodling from my head (kinda obvious), second one is half half, as well as some quick thumbnails from the back of a car on a very bumpy road =(
Oh, and some parkour-based gesture sketches.
very interesting stuff, ..i think u need to work more with pencil and try to render with it...by the other hand, ur dig pieces r nice, try to work more with contrast, brightness etc....ur brush stroke it ok..so keep it up!
