Heres a pencil sketch i made of Kurusaki Ichigo from the Bleach Anime series--- I photographed the sketch and coloured it using a software called Artrage. Was really hard- had to colour very painstakingly- especially since i do all my work with my mouse-- badly need to buy myself a pen tablet. its one of the very few for which i used artrage.
These are sketches and doodles i made with black micro-tip pens. mostly during boring lectures and meetings.. the bald guy with the swords at the ends of chains is an attempt at the charachtercalled KRATOS from GOD OF WAR by Andy PArk-(i am a huge fan--his art so amazing and inspiring)

black pen + markers was my favourite medium when i was a kid. these are some recent works that i decided to do with the same medium. the thing i love about markers is the speed with which you can achieve the desired effect. the two dancers are sketches i made at home after watchin a live performance---the long ones are all book marks i made for my mom .. hope you guys like all of them--- please pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease do comment.
heres an initial sketch of my prof and then the portrait that i developed out of it--i did with acrylic paints.
heres a quickie i made in about 40 minutes-- but keep in mind that i am using purely my mouse fro all digital painting--- so quickies are always rough--- when giving attention to detail and to proportions with a mouse-- it takes a lot of time--- so this ones pretty rough--- anyways --check it out.
all i gotta say is: keep going! don't stop! you are an artist! only you can make it happen!
a few things: lay off the digital painting for now. stick to sketching. draw from life...a lot. do lots of anatomy studies. look into Loomis, Bridgman, Hogarth, and Vilppu (for now). if you wanna get more insight into digital painting then check out the massive black video downloads. most of all....keep practicing!
rock on dude!

thank you for your kind words and advice Peetaer. i am gonna upload some sketches and anatomy studies soon

You´re certainly on the right track here, and you sure don´t lack imagination!
But like Peetaer said, draw from real life, or photos. That will help you make your poses more dynamic and realistic. This is something i´m trying to learn myself, since everything i draw looks completely static.
Also, invest in a good anatomy book. If you wanna draw those burly hero types you´ll wanna get those muscles right.
Keep it up
hmm-- come to think of it---i have access to a whole bunch of anatomy books--- never thought of using them for sketching--- so far i've always been using comic books for anatomical reference--- thanks fer the encouragement doggy--- i totally like the stuff youve posted in your sketchbook thread... but yeah i have the same problem as you---i keep adding detail to even rough sketches--- so the number and amount is always less--well i am gonna keep at it--- try and keep the graph pointing upward.
here they are --- a few anatomy studies i made today--- the last ones pretty old.
good things: overall understanding of anatomy, dynamic and human form, basic core drawing skills
Bad things: Too heavy lines, grinding some shapes in arms or legs so they smudge into black, latest green is better in this aspects, not so smudgy. line weight differences are good but they must be controlled (like lighter lines in light and stronger in shadows)
Also your characters i feel are over muscled (not everyone), or their muscles are allways 100% tense which they cannot be all muscles, all the time. Some muscles rest when others do the work, like in arms stretching we have muscle groups that pull the hand out and other muscles that pull them back.
If you want to go into digital, get wacom intuos tablet for you, it will help.
Other thing i can tell is posemaniacs training: 30-45s poses from that page like 500 pieces first
Good way to learn digital is colourpick colour when gradating them to each other and make 20 min speedpainting series from photographs, people and landscapes.
You got talent but now you need mileage to get where you want. Who do you want to be, what do you want to achieve with your sketchbook training? when you have answered these question you know what kind of training you have to concentrate in order of getting there.
hope this helps

hey Nettle_Mountain--- had noticed some of those things myself--- am in the process of checkin out some tutorials--- thanks fer takin the time to give me all this info. greatly obliged.
another anatomy study
Hey dude. Good to see that you're doing lots of anatomy studies. One thing I need to point out is that demanding people to comment on your work just turns people off. I know you're excited about all the work you're doing and you want to get feedback but you're going to have to be more patient with people. Sometimes it takes days before someone drops comments.
Don't let what I just said deter you from keeping up the pace; just keep that in mind. Rock on dude!
i get what you said man--- thanks fer the signal
You got some nice creative ideas going on here.
Try working on your pencil lines, do drawing from life, ref, books, masters, other artist etc but by just using line to get it. This will help your lines greatly.
Study all the basics too, anatomy, form, rendering, light, tone etc
Keep at it
Hey, thanks for looking at my sketchbook. Some cool stuff here, but you have to work some on the anatomy. Download Loomis or Bridgeman PDF's and use those, if you copy and analyze their drawings you'll learn loads. You should, as people have mentioned, also draw lots from life, and try to use less lines to describe the object. You are currently doing many very gestural lines, but try to do few and accurate lines instead, it'll look much cleaner and more accurate.
gonna start on dat---
been far away from ma sketchbooks fer way too long---
new posts are on their way
Here are two pics i did entirely with oil pastels. tell me what you think.
1st one is a bruised superman.
2nd one is a samurai type dude fighting a mystical dragaon--hahah!
In the white icy deserts of the arctic this creature is known as RAGE DEMON or the Arctic juggernaut. These are the name by which it is referred to in the legends of the Arctic. The creature knows no exhaustion due to the excessive pumping of adrenaline. The production of fatigue toxins is extremely less in its muscles- giving it extreme stamina, speed and strength. But the drawback is that it has an extremely fast metabolic system. So whatever it eats gets digested almost completely and very fast. Hence it has the urge to keep feeding. This monster can run for hours on end with ever increasing speed. Another awesome feature are the super-dense horn like bony protrusions that are arrayed all over its head and shoulders and that adorn its elbows,joints and the tip of its powerful tail. All these features and its awesome strength combined are the reason why its called the Arctic juggernaut. It can achieve extremely great speeds and thanks to its great strength and bony armor can crash through most obstacles. It has been known even to have bored right through icebergs. It is the supreme predator of the Arctic. It knows no fear and takes down animals far larger than itself thus doing justice to he name JUGGERNAUT.
Tell me what you think.
hehe ---pretty cartoony---- But had fun.
yeh keep training more anatomy!! i like what you did with the pastels!!
watch the forms and try to think 3d when u draw. Then you know
how to fill those forms, wich go round when it go's flat things that pull out,
and all those things.. you have to think about that when u draw.
try to get all the lines correct before filling the forms.
