Angie likes pencils.
I’ve been here for a while now, mainly reading, and already had a sketchbook thread which I deleted recently because I haven’t been around for so long and wanted to sort of start again. I really suck at digital art (one reason might be the stone-age tablet I own) and therefore prefer to use traditional mediums such as markers, watercolours, acrylics (which I suck at, too) and etchings. I’m going to start studying art this winter and really want to improve before that so that I won't fail. I really am a maniac when it comes to details and orderliness and sadly often overdo. Anyway, I’d really like to get some critique and I hope to get better at human anatomy. Enough said
Here are some of my latest pictures (it would probably be pointless to share old works):

kymoart: Thanks a lot! It takes me long to get human anatomy right so I really feel the need to improve.
AM-Artist: It's a small world!
Here are some more pictures. I've got some new sketches like poses and rooms and stuff like that but I didn't have time to scan anything yet :/

hi there! cool sketchbook. there's really not much I could critique really as I don't have anymore knowledge than you do!
All I would say is keep practicing, that what helps me, I read tutorials too which helps a bit but it's mainly practicing and viewing sketchbooks on this website - that's what motivates and inspires me.
Look forward to a long future of seeing new work in your sketchbook =)

Ooh I really like the composition of the man and the foxes, it has a very nice flow to it. I also love the sparse use of red on the drawing of the girl with the roses, and the two detailed drawings with the slate blue tones.
Very unique style!

As others have already said there is not much here to critique. Your style is very illustrative and graphic (in the old sense of the word), and it seems very well developed. As for your anatomy, again not much I can see that's off, the only thing is the stylization may be retarding the sense of volume on the forms but that's not so much about the anatomy itself as it is about the style and maybe the choice of colour. As for the class(es) your are going to take I don't think you have to worry too much about failing. In an attempt to give some useful crit I might suggest looking at your compositional choices and how you're leading the eye of the viewer. Anyway just keep up the good work. looking forward to more.
See my STUFF

AlexTooth: Yeah looking at other's sketchbooks is really motivating. I always feel the need to draw after I've seen one
Pseudo-Kidney: Thanks a lot!
Chas: Thank you for your comment I have to admit that sometimes I don't develop a composition for a picture at all (and I'm really ashamed of that).
Here are some pictures/sketches that were mainly drawn in school or while watching TV. Please don't be harsh, I know there are terrible mistakes in there
