    Smile criticism and advice please!

    Hi, I'm new here on concept, and from what you will see i'm no where as good as most people on here, but i would like to be one day.

    most of my drawings you will see pertain to a gamethat my friend is making up and plans to make one day. It has a incredibly complex and long storyline so, even though i would like to, i will not attempt to type it on here.

    Note that this is in latest work to earlier work





    I was bored so i added a wing to the original

    I coloured this one, but my friend Adrian shadded it for me

    I would recommend looking at some reference pictures to help add some realism.

    Also, the characters seem very stiff and posed.

    you can try making a whole page of thumb nail sketchs to work out the poses and then take the one you like the best and use that for your final and
    KEEP TRYING !you can learn it and you will if you want to. Learn everything you can and do your best and you will be great!

    A really good way to practice and learn dynamic poses is to take a life-drawing class and do lots of gesture drawings.

    Or have a friend pose for you.

    As it is, you're off to a good start. I was at about the same level as you when I started drawing.

    I will have to pursue those classes when i finish school, but I will definitely try to find something like that.

    You have a lot of potential! your attention to detail is impressive on some of your armors (especially the helmets) I feel like you are getting ahead of your self. You are so into your ideas that you are forgetting the basics. Map out your characters with basic sketches (the jumble of ovals) and get your proportions down and then flesh out detail afterwords. I think your drawings will flow together alot more. right now they feel constructed with bits and pieces which individually look solid, but they quite fit with the rest of the figure.
    Best of luck!

    Beware of all enterprises that require new clothes.

    Feel free to slaughter my sketchbook!
    the help is always appreciated!

    Why not make a sketchbook and put all these in it? its quite hard to give any specific critique, since there are so many of them
