Like What I
nice studies...keep them coming.
Thanks for the comment! really liking your sketchbook progress... especially the anatomical studies of the arm with the muscular details! I need to more of those! Very informative!
Also the top image is really nice!
in terms of critique the only thing that i would recommend with your pencil sketches (and I am by no means an expert when it comes to this sort of thing) is to maybe try doing some of your drawings with absolutely no emphasis on lines, but in just tones... for example there is a lot of really heavy contrast in some of your images where it goes from white, to a mid grey to a black and then a lot of outlines.
I may be completely wrong, but it tends to help me... really try and focus on working with some really *delicate* lighter tones first, so that your sketch is really faint, and then slowly build up the forms towards darker (but still not really dark)... and only add lines where they are necessary (the best example I can give is to look at ZhuZhu's work... he hardly uses any lines whatsoever... just tones. For example, with faces, instead of outlining the face, try to create the line by the area of contrast between the light skin and the dark barkground.
I hope this helps, and once again, just a suggestion, I am by no means qualified in this area
off to a good start here, i would definitely say you need to spend a lot more time working on anatomy do more life drawing, study loomis/bridgman/hogarth etc. etc. i would also suggest you try to enhance your values a bit more to help give more depth and contrast to the image. other than that just keep on doing what you're doing.
To live is to create, to create is to live. Without art and music, I do not know how I would get by in my day to day life.
