    Draw Erryday (crits and advice always appreciated!)

    Oh hey. I'm a 17 year old Brit who doesn't post here very often, hopefully I'll get back into the swing of things soon.

    I love lions, I love steam power, 'nuff said.

    An imaginary bookshop, for imaginary books? Those top windows went so very wrong.

    My first ever steam creature, the lion's still my favourite, however.

    A Victorian rabbit butler, drawn in a biology lesson, my friends are terrified of this guy.

    I'd like to think raptors were posh tossers. This one's pretty old.

    this one's ever older, its been sat in my folder for quite some time. There's some awful, awful anatomy on there.

    you get posting everywhere, youf, to bring attention to yourself. we'll crack out the anatomy books, learn about neatening our lines together, identify the colours of everything in the house on photoshop...

    and then we'll have an art deathmatch.
    What an overwhelming lesson to all artists! Be not afraid of absurdity; do not shrink from the fantastic. Within a dilemma, choose the most unheard-of, the most dangerous, solution. Be brave, be brave! - Isak Dinesen

    you're really good for fourteen! great choise to move here, you really do get crits here (occasionally ._.'). I love your steam punk stuff, especially the giraffe design is cool. only thing that bugs me is the thickness of the rhino's legs (they don't have such legs), although they make the robot look kinda powerful, but not as "rhino-esque". and perspective would be kinda nice on the bookshop pic.
    could you post some life drawings and pencil studies? and those anatomy drawings make good stuff happen to drawings ;D.

    keep it up and welcome to cA.
    FUTILE EFFORTS <-help me I suck.

    Hey there Jen. Firstly I have to say that I really, really envy you for starting at CA in a such young age, people like that often make it far. Secodly, I love steam powered things, so keep at it .

    As for the critique... From now on draw (or imagine) vertical line in the middle of your characters. It will help you find the correct posture (without falling forwards or backwards). As seen on your rabbit butler sketch.

    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=94571 Here you´ll find some links on anatomy books. Check out bridgemans anatomy book. Knowledge of anatomy is one of the most powerfull for a artist, and bridgeman will help you lots over the years.

    You got a good eye on those real-life studies. And thats basically what you need to be good. Now its just work. Good luck.

    thanks alot guys, I really appreciate it!

    lAhlbeck: funnily enough, that was the only one that I used a reference for! Yeah, I'll try and find some perspective aids, got any reccomendations?

    Mr.Smile: Thankyou! I've been looking for some of those!

    I found some more older sketches I'd like to share, as well as a quick anatomy study and a real-life sketch from rehersals the other night. I really need to invest in a decent set of sketching pencils :/

    great work on all of this! I cant wait to see your sketchbook grow, you sure do get a lot of help over here (so much more than you get at deviantart, and its waaay less drama too ). so keep at it, never let your pencil down!

    Nice stuff you have here. especially for 14 years old.
    Hot damn.
    I like the robots and stuff.. I love drawing robots too(come check out my sb)

    If I were to offer a crit.. try working on your line quality.. as of now it looks really sketchy. I like that last image in the last post you did with the linework overtop of the rough drawing. very nice.

    cheers!

    Hi there,

    Some of your stuff looks too scribbled, like the hand holding the pen a post back.
    You should try a set of drawings, just using one line, with a flexible pen or pencil that can give you some lineweight on the edges.

    I know that it's tempting to go over lines again and again, but your drawing will look way better if you don't.

    Best of luck to you

    (I just love the bear with the umbrella xD)
