    Zeus and His Constant Illustrations

    My first official sketch posted on Concept art, my friend JediNinjaMan has been a great friend in showing me this website and all a plethora of other tid-bits of information I value. Well it's no where near pleasant to the eye, but Alas it is a start.

    Bring on the criticism.

    Zeus and His Constant Illustrations

    That is my kitten Leo right below, he is adorable!
    I have another kitten was well, his name is Oscar.

    Hey man just got Corel Painter IX installed 8)

    Here is the link to Mentlers anatomy thread He has some brilliant stuff in there and if you study it up you will improve really fast, I would break it down into segments and choose different areas to focus on, A good starting point would be some of his facial anatomy stuff.

    but ya anyways you should post some more work, the biggest thing I see with the piece you showed us is that the eyes are too high on the face, and the eyes go a little too far back into the head.

    here are some more links you should check out these are from mindcanymans Sb he has some very inspiring progress. With hard work and dedication to art, and with the help of the people on this forum look how far he went from being a complete beginner on page 1 in his SB to being an art teacher at a collegiate level on page 59

    See you Monday keep drawing

    good to see you updating, you should try drawing something with out rehatching over your original line just draw one confident definite line and don't re go over it, it will help with your drawings clarity a lot
    the eye on the top left looks pretty legit keep it up man and do more than one page of these a day if you can
    keep it up man

    shoot man that last one is a step in the right direction, nice job on cleaning up the lines and the form is pretty clear,the only thing thats a little funky are the lips the little v that they make needs to line up with each nostril, but still it looks pretty good
    keep it up man

    infact there is no line in the world, and so we should see them as a small shape, no a line.

    Hey, thanks for stopping by my SB.

    Hmm, try starting out your drawings with your pen set to a low opacity first to work out the general forms and then slowly get darker. I think it will help your lines look less messy.

    Hey Zeus thanx for stopping by.

    I think it's good that you crit your own work too, even before others can. Add some self critique to your posts. It's the quickest way to be honest with yourself and also to get your intentions across to others, that way the critique will be inline with your energy. It will also make you face your own judgement on where dicipline may be waning or at lack.

    Your shading is artistic in a way and might be pretty to look at in some way but generally you would get advice to perhaps change it. Try shading with series of lines and not zigzag strokes for instance. A comment like that might offend if the way you render is part of a personal style or something you don't want to kick.

    Cheers.
    Will check ya agian.
