    Here are a couple of characters I made up. There's another one I want to post but I have to reduce the file size for that one. But for now...

    Here's a little something I did a few weeks ago. This is probably one of the only drawings I finished in one sitting XD

    Hey, welcome to CA.org. I really like your first pic- the expression was captured nicely. The first set of eyes is pretty good, though I think the second few and a few other of these pics reflects a small common mistake often made in the first year or two of drawing: using lines to make forms rather than shading. Your shading seems to be just a smudge of light graphite over the skin, perhaps look at your first few eyes to get a good idea of what it should look like...? I'd suggest using deeper, bolder strokes to carve the shapes and forms out a little more, and use less 'random lines'. Other than that, you're on the right path. :] Looking forward to see more work, keep at it!

    Thanks Shalite! Yeah I've noticed what you mentioned about the shading. Before summer I had no sense of shadowing whatsoever since I had never done it before that...due to my long break from drawing. My scanner sucks and makes my pictures super bright so I mess with the darkness and whatnot...makes the page look yellowish but oh well lol. The reason I started studying anatomy now is to get a better feel and understanding of the human form. My weakness is clothing though. But first I'll get the hang of my anatomy and then I'll move on to clothing XD
    I'll put up some drawings later today.

    Here's my first anatomy studies. I went and labeled muscles the muscles... not sure if that's necessary at the moment but could come in handy later, yeah?
    As for the hands, I wont get into hand muscles until I finish with the arm. I can tell from looking through this book that hands will be a pain in the ass... but I went ahead and added some hand drawings with basic hand proportions I picked up.

    I'm already seeing improvement in that last batch of eyes! =)
    Keep working on your shading! Study other artists' work to find out how many different ways there are to create shape and form

    It's great to see you studying anatomy as well! It's a pain in the ass, but that hard work gives a lot in the long run

    Cool concepts, but maybe you should try to give your work more contrast, deeper darks etc (maybe consider markers, or pen and ink ?)

    Just a suggestion, keep up the good work ^^

    ReviseTheMethod - Thanks! It's nice to know my work is paying off. Anatomy is kind of annoying but I find myself enjoying it as I get better. I'll definitely keep up my studies XD

    fullmetaljacket - You're right, I do need to work on contrast. Sometimes I'm afraid of making an error if I go too dark and it looks too flat... but I'll work on that for sure.

    Okay everyone, new update! Some anatomy with skulls, the neck, and eyes (a couple noses that were half-assed too).

    Yeah, I have that 'afraid to make a mistake' problem too, but I sort of broke out of my tight sketches and loosened up my hand. It's great to have some stuff that you won't show anyone else so you don't feel pressured to make everything look like a refined pic. Loosen up and have contour drawings and the like.

    Good stuff you have here, keep it up, man!

    It's about time I update this sucker. Been so busy lately with assignments, college applications, life in general. I've also been suffering from lack of inspiration. I guess you can call it writer's block for drawers. So here's what I've been able to get onto paper during my slump.

    Been lacking originality lately, and someone mentioned that my faceless heads (like the ones I posted on this page) look like Spiderman. So I began to draw him but kinda put my own twist on him (not much of a twist though). It's not finished yet though... not sure how I'll finish it yet.

    Here are just some concepts I'm trying to put together for my next character. I think I'm sticking to the one on the last picture.

    Your studies are looking great! I'd try to do some more completed works that have a full composition and grayscale. Maybe attend a lifedrawing class so you can do some real life figure studies.
