    Adventurer in CA world

    Finally I made it into this place, so greetings everyone.

    I think that in order to improve my skills I need to get constructive feedback and critics and share my passion with people.

    Am 23 years old, I am really passionate about art.

    I have started to draw seriously about two years ago it was on purpose to make better 3d arts in which I have a larger experience of five years.

    I've just bought a digital pen this month

    so lets rock.

    Well, there is some good ability in this picture. The only probklem , is the musckes themselves, are either too big, or in the wrong place, and the body itself , is very out of proportion. I don't know if you are going for a cartoony feel? I f you are some good anatomy studies, and some rules of thumb to go by when you draw certain parts of the body. What I mean is the face the psace between the nose and mouth is near equal to the space between the nose and the eyes. They space between nose and mouth should be around half of the space from eye to nose. That is a rule of thumb that I use, others are that the body should be around 7 or 8 heads tall, I forget which, but something like that is good to use. Just take a pen , and do some sketches of figure, and break down the body parts, and truly learn how the muscles move , and work.

    Also, just to say this, This took me a while to learn , anatomy , doesn't mean showing every muscle possible, and bulging like mr olympic's, but knowing, in a certain posem which will be seen, and which won't. What muscles are stressed, and what muscles are relaxed.

    KOF, Jojo's bizarra, Fist of the northstar.

    Good start. Look up Loomis, Bridgeman online to see books on anatomy and copy them. They will help.

    And the saying of CA, draw from life. Figures, plants, cans, apples, shadows, etc. will help pull all of it together.

    Keep going! Like the rugby players!

    Im very glad that you have noticed the inspirations beyond the first drawings
    and I already have loomis books you mentioned ,by saying copy them you mean copy the books or copy the drawings .
    By the way they are handball players ('-_-).

    You have nice studies here and you have to keep them up.
    Well about loomis i checked it once to see how he draws his anatomy, i didnt copy him
    In my opinion its better to understand than copy.
    Just keep observing and memorizing situations(of muscles,basic shapes of body,etc.)
    You can be better so do it

    see ya

    D'oh. Color me corrected. And copying the illustrations of loomis can bring on understanding and change perception to "see" more in what is viewed in life. Applied learning.

    Still like the HB players (<---me correcting self).

    Worked on loomis figures ,I tried both methods and i can feel that i have memorized some more details, i have done more loose figures but not worth posting since it was just to see the progress.
    here is the studies so far.

    The first drawing is copied from a haw to draw comic book women .
    the second when am out of concentration i kinda feel comfortable with drawing some weird faces.
    Just to note that I draw much more but not worth posting.

    Stick to normal figures. Learning from a how-to for anatomy, unless the illustrator shows both normal and exaggerated hyper-style firgue, can teach you some very bad habits.

    I know, I learned anatomy from looking at comics, then spent my time going backwards.

    Also, there's good books on movement, when you want the figure to be seen in motion you draw a line, besides the center line which is usually the spine, to represent the movement of the figure, flow and direction of it and what not, and build the body to follow it. Actually, if you've got "How to draw comics the marvel way", Sal buscema shows you that.

    The figures are pretty good. Focus on foundation. Some illustrators start the figure with either cylinders, circles, blocks, lines, etc. These are just things to train you mind on what to 'see' in the way of human anatomy.

    Really good book, Atlas of the Human anatomy for the artist by Stephen Rogers Peck.

    Most here say draw from life, but if you don't have the foundation to know what you're looking at in real life, how can you draw it? (debates on here about that are many!) I feel, IMO, that you do both, one helps the process, from books, the other helps refine it, from life.

    The female has good movement.

    Keep it up.

    (hope I helped? )

    Thanks OmenSpirits for the advice, it is helpful, I've tried many ways to draw the human figures and I can say that I am slowly making my own method outta the whole, I need here a little explanation about the foundation, and ill try to draw from life even it's a little bit scary to me.

    I will add the books you mentioned to my growing library.

    You've definitely got a hyper-active creative drive and imagination working for you- Work on making your style unique and building up on those nice anatomy studies man, nice work, keep it comin'.

    callouses on the fingers. If you don’t have any, you’re not drawing enough.

    It's always hard to start over from where I was before putting my pen down. I spend a lot of time remembering what I have learned and there is always a bit of frustration in the first minutes.

    More studies, sketches and messing around.

    I totally dig your style, so tight.

    Keep 'em coming!
