    Rocket's Sketchbook - A Desire to Improve

    Hey all. I have a sketchbook up on Imagine FX and I thought I would come here for extra crits and help. I really want to improve my character drawing, so here it goes.

    You draw the waists very slim. I guess that's a stylistic choice, but I would still prefer to see them filled out a bit. You seem to have good proportions though, keep up the good work.

    I would suggest trying to try realistic, right now it looks like manga/anime/whatever.

    Manga something i definatly dont want to get as a result. So thanks for that. My tutor at college said I should get myself to a coffee shop or the college canteen and draw people there. I just feel to self concious sketching in public. Legs I am also finding very difficult.

    NICE figures! Maybe work with pen that should enhance your line quality. just a tip. any chance going into coloring em?

    A prety good trick is to not always draw all the lines fully, just draw what you would see. not what you know is there. its kinda hard to explain, think about it while your drawing

    Hey rocket,,
    cool figure sketches..
    loosen up a bit and they r goin to be terryfick..
    hope you do keep a good anatomy book for reference..

    the trick in this realm is 'not' to fall in love with your drawings..
    chuck them out and start drawing again and again till you drop dead..
    cause these sketches dont deserve beautification..they are here to teach you dynamics..

    imagine your sketchbook is a 'circus'..
    these loose figure drawings are your 'clowns'..
    no more attention..no leass either on them too..
    was that helpful...
    hope so..

    feel free to walk into my sketchbook too..
    have fun and keep workin...
