    Smile Debut gallery! (sketches and stuff) UPDATE!

    Hi I'm from the Philippines. I'm 19 years old and it's my first time here.

    Feel free to give me advice about anything. I just love to draw and I don't know the technicalities. I was linked here through Deviantart.

    I was was awed and inspired at the level artists are at in this site and the concept behind the site. People are so focused and willing to help each other...it was simply wonderful. It would be nice to have a good foundation in drawing.

    I'd appreciate it if you would take the time to critic me. I'm hungry for it. I absolutely LOVE art and aspire to be the best artist I can be.

    Thank you SO much in advanced.

    GOD BLESS!!!

    Nice!

    You're comfortable with a pencil, and it shows - I love the looseness of the sketches.

    Take it as advice from someone who knows nothing - I'd like to see a little more push in subject matter and background, out of your comfort zone (you don't have to do Geiger monsters or nekkid bimbos, but maybe some background stuff would push these a bit further.)

    Note: This is what GOOD Manga inspired artwork is supposed to look like.

    It really is about doing rather than thinking isn't it...I have been planning backgrounds of all sorts and it doesn't come out right. Maybe it's because I can't stand destroying a drawing I like with a crumbling background so yeah, I guess you could say I'm uncomfortable.

    Anyway, I'll still practice doing it. No pain, no gain...


    Thanks a lot!!

    Hm. Do you think a weak grasp of perspective might be what's killing 'em?

    Actually, yes..I'm starting to look at things a little different now though. I can't really grasp the tutorials...It's like I have to walk around a space to REALLY know. I dunno...that's how approached figures and I guess old habits die hard.

    Your figures are expressive (thus fantastic!), and very well-drawn, and there's no harm in putting these into a regular Sketchbook/Thread here. I'd say just diversify your subject matter here; and push beyond the intense posing/intense embracing/intense sitting to make something more illustrative, or tell a story. You have the talent to do that!!

    Update Sept. 16

    This is a fanart of One piece and Lord of the rings. It's not that realistic but I wanted to unwind. These are all just quick renderings and I still wanna work on this. I know there are lot of things to fix but if you could humor me and point them out, It'll help a lot.

    You still have a problem with perspective (!), but here's something you could try: render the linework in the background in more thinner, delicate lines than the foreground. The grass on cliff in the bg and the grass in the foreground are about the same thickness - in comparative scale, the bg grass could be HUGE. D: The shape of the (foreground) grass needs more variety in 'design', thickness and layout rather than a soft furry indefinite look. Try something a bit more coarse and wild!

    The colouring on this new pic is lovely, I'd like to see more definition of light and shadow. It looks like a wash of colour rather than anything *really* defined, but it's still a nice bright sketch at this stage, even if it's far from a finalised picture. You could try approaching it again in a style completely opposite to what you're comfortable with. For example, you could use flats and a Polygon Selection tool to render the colours/shades/highlights in flat blocks of colour, in contrast to your soft lines. No? Just to try it?

    Watch the proportions and widths around Nami's wrists, be aware of the bones under there.
