Wow, that is awesome! Can`t critique on old stuff, so I will wait for something newer ^_^ But I am still learning, too.
@Traveler: Thank you! i'll try to post as many as i can =)!
@anjyil: you're right.. i just starting again to use this site(i don't understand it completely yet.. but sometimes i browse reading some information around here :B!).and yep! we're always learning ^_^
..just yesterday i read this:
"I have not truly begun mentoring yet. It took me a while to find a mentee.
It was more difficult than I thought. The thing is, I want someone who is displaying some dedication. There are an amazing number of people who either have just joined CA or have been around for a while but have not posted hardly anything. Nothing makes me more wary than a join date of half a year ago with 10 whole posts to their name. If I am going to invest the time to teach someone I'd like to see some initiative.
So for anyone searching for a mentor who may be reading this. Get a sketchbook and start posting as much art as you can. It looks really good to the guys(and gals) searching for students. "
By Chance here: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=109525
..so I get noticed that i needed to show all my work to get more feedback.. even from sketches(i used to think only about critiques from more finished work :B!), so since this moment i'm going to start to show all what i do XD! ..just because i'm always drawing! lol
I have a work not related with Illustration, but I'll try to post a draw for every day^^
..well! i'm talking too much..so HERE WE GO!! lol
19-mayo-2010, Something i did in the subway(this morning) :B!

That is a great point about mentors. I am with a mentor now, and have seen several students come and go (well, figuratively speaking---it`s all online). That dedication and grit is key, and the more you have of it, the more your mentor can help you.
now we see some stuff from you ^_^ The proportions look really good, and the expressions are very nice. One thing I notice is that they look a little stiff, kind of like they are squarish. Trying adding al ittle bit of curve to your lines. Is that in Pen? (subway drawing is fun! I did some of those, but people move too much )
yep, you're right.. sometimes it's a little bit difficult for me to draw more "emotive" expressions or give them more natural movement.. i'll try to work more on that! thanks! ^_^
And yep! i use a mechanical pencil with blue color :B!(i get used to work with red or blue, ..it's a kind of technique to work with traditional inks and then use digital colors :B![it looks more clean]). In the subway i have more problems with other people that walks in front of my "model" or in the "pick" hours when it looks like a sardine's can :B!
For expressions, it just takes practice. Use a lot of life models and you will get there ^_^
I agree, it is annoying when something gets in your way--even for a moment! But if you choose just the right spot to sit, you are fine ^_^ My own rule of thumb is to not draw during rush hours anywhere. Just not worth the hassle
Hi. Nice start here. Maybe you could benefit from Loomis and Bridgman books. They are very good to start learning about the human figure. Right now I'm on it too.
@Ivan Turcin: Thanks! i downloaded some Loomis' books =)! i'm gonna start with "Figure anatomy for Artists"(something like that).. i'm not sure if i have seen something from Bridgman..may you recommend me one book from him?
Waiting for a friend in the sub-way.. and others with my friends :B!
My first time working in this size.. it has many problems with the proportions D:!
*the last one is another from the subway

Prisma color markers... some thumbnails that i did last night, i haven't uploaded too many things recently, but i have been studing more theory^^
Comments, critiques and any kind of advice are always welcome!
in your model studies, the head, although quite well proportioned, looks a bit small sometimes. Try to keep it in mind. Also, the little thumbs are interesting. Try to not use one value for the house, one for the road, etc, but to use one for all the shady parts of the picture, another for the darkest shadow area, etc. I mean, often the value range of the image is not in concordance with the different things you've put in it.
Anyway, good work! Keep at it
@Abrodos: you're right.. it was my first time working in that size, so it become a little bit difficult for me to keep the proportions :B!(i'll be more careful the next time^^); I've done more thumbs now.. and paid more atention to the values ! thanks for your advices^^
and well.. I'm trying to study more theory and don't repeat the same mistakes :B!
I think that i've improve a little bit the value and composition..(yeah! i know that the thumbnails are still too grey.. but i got noticed about that after scanning them =(!).
As always.. C&C are always welcome, any advice for improving is really apreciated^^
Have a nice day!

You got a great eye for tone and your also very creative. My only complain would be in the life studies your doing, they all seem to carry the same type of face and that face is a bit too unnatural looking. Sort of cartoony at times. That's my only recommendation. Keep it up!
wenas, ahi lo pille, pos como te dicen, mas estudios del natural tus trabajos con plumones estan bastante buenos, tal vez deberias probar armar un rostro con plumnoes tanmbien a ver que te sale
Everything is lost... even the hope...
My study, my soul, my sketch
well.. I've drawing a lot lately.. sketching ideas.. and working in my daily life as designer.. but i haven't scanned anything D:! *shameonme*
But last night i did a quick sketch in photoshop that i hope to improve later with the help of some of you !
Thanks for all you comments and critiques.. they are always very helpful for me !
I like this last piece, it looks like it will be very interesting when its completed. The rest is all good stuff, and you say you are working away and not scanning much of it, so you are working hard which is the main thing for improvement. I would recommend doing some rendering in pencil - adding values and highlights/lowlights "shading" as its called also. This really helps give you an idea of how light plays and interacts on objects which is also helpful for colour painting.
You mentioned you are a designer? what sort of thing do you do
keep it up!
@ThomasM: Thank you! I'll take your advices and i'll try to make some works with my pencils..i have to work more in the final pieces(i think that i've been doing too many skeches).- I work as designer in the "Universidad de Chile", i have to design any kind of stuff.. but most of it is webdesign.
@cgaddict: Thank you.. i suppose that i have to practice more structure and stuff like that
Well..yesterday i worked a little bit more in the main idea, i'm not sure if the composition improved? what do you think? (i just copy/pasted the "Reptile/knight" behind just to see how does it look..).
..i still have to define where the "armor" beging and end.
Thanks for all your comments!
