    Hello, this is my 1st post.

    posted as well on Sketchbooks, but I would like to know what you think of it.

    Done on A4 paper, with a pacer. (don't like pencils)

    Thing is, you haven't left us with very much to crit. These are just some random doodles, and it doesn't look like you've spent a huge amount of time on either one of them.

    Try to spend some more time on one of them. Flesh them out. Who are they? Where do they come from? What is their profession?

    Huh, to me they're not just random doodles. It looks like they took a good bit of time, especially the big creature and little raptor looking thing next to it. I think the other things, like the cool creature in a hat, are too disembodied and small to analyze, though, even though I like them.

    Anyway, about the big guy, it looks like he would fall over to the right (our right). Either the size of his arm or it's placement is off. And in the disembodied head version, I don't know what's going on behind is bone/horn growth, it looks like a bunch of bananas.

    I wanna see a full-bodied version of the creature in the hat! It looks endearing.

    Always think about how the body will work. Will those legs support that frame? How does it move? Study animal anatomy as well there is a lot of cool stuff out there that will add interesting flavor and set your stuff apart.

    Hey good start. Listen to the anatomy comments made before but you should also focus on your sense of structure. You’ll get better at it when you can break down your characters into simple shapes and draw them with the proper perspective. Even a face is broken down in shapes ; it will help you give the illusion of volume and give you (and whoever you’re trying to communicate your concept to) an understanding of how things work, where do they sit, etc.

    If you need help on that, let us know (I can’t post anything from work and have 10 minutes left to my lunch hour for links )

    Hope you don’t mind me asking, how old are you?
