Okay so new post yay!
Um today i was doodling in open canvas and just trying to get feel forthe planes on face.
I also want to start working on bodies but i have no clue where to begin. i have a few anatomy books but i don't know to properly use them as reference materials and i want to try to draw gesture drawings but i cant seem to get the mechanics of it down just right lol.
Anyway comments and critique and any other help welcomed!
Just a self portrait
some underoath inspired work.
if you guys have any comments or critique feel free to post them.
Also need help trying to figure out how to learn figure drawing, its confusing and i have no clue where to start.
Hey! Good work you have started off -- especially your digital work. I like your construction of the head.
As far as figure drawing goes, it helps to draw a real person (and it helps even more if they're posing). But here's a Loomis guide I was given. It's handy! Hope it helps!

Hey, this is cool stuff keep posting!
Check out my sketchbook
Thanks for the index of loomis and for the compliment ^_^
below or some anatomy pages. i used Refs. I'm trying to come up with a way to simplify the form but before i do that i have to understand it.
There's a few big headed mutants amongst that last batch and the pencil rendering could do with some more contrast - don't be afraid of tone!
But your work is looking good, some nice pieces amongst those stuffs you posted earlier, like the guys with the eyes in their hands. You draw a good face as well, but the bodies do need work. Those Loomis books will help.
Thanks, and are their heads too big? for some reason i always feel if i draw them any smaller they are not proportionate D:
Here are some Alice in wonderland pieces that i drew up
painting in open canvas, just trying to make something look painted lol
I'm in agreement with cgaddict and Duemorzelsh.
You have a great raw talent. I know personally that you've begun art school as a start to your future career, so I know precisely how overwhelmed you must be with all your assignments.
However, you're now facing your biggest challenge of all, while you're starting school and living your life and still trying to have a social life and all that: you need to produce a good amount of work every day. Not just for your assignments, and not just for the pleasure of drawing the very thing that keeps you from climbing a bell tower and shooting people out of frustration and craziness.
You need to draw and draw and draw for the sheer practice of it. It is the thing that will toughen you toward being able to deal with both regular and harsh deadlines. It will strengthen your discipline. It will be the one thing almost above all else that will serve you so well in your future, that when you are out in the real world competing with thousands of other people to become one of the few (keep that in mind) who are actually being employed, it will help you maintain a level of output and productivity that will KEEP you employed.
As to your work; you are VERY good, no disputing that. Like I said earlier, it's in its raw form. I'd love to see how you develop your work. I want to see your brain at work. I would hope to see you start an illustration that you keep updating here on ConceptArt, to show us all how you approach your work.
But I don't want to see just any simple illustration. I want to see a COMPLEX illustration that scares the shit out of you to attempt. I would like to see your illustration have specifically a number of characters (male, female, animal, monster, whatever), actual environments WITH 3-point perspective, showing lots of dimension.
Over time, you can keep posting your progress. It'll be a pain in the butt, but you'll end up getting great feedback from everyone here.
Show me more!
Just a quick update before i do some studies today, which i will be posting later. This was some fanart done in open canvas 1.1 i tried to draw that one scene from black swan XD notaspoiler it was in the preview
Nothing with perspective.

final digital post for today
I haven't been here for such a long time, I didn't remember what your username was. It's very nice to see you back up and drawing again!
I like how you're getting back into figure/gesture drawings. You have improved a lot since the last time I've seen your work. Your figure work is very convincing in its execution. The fact that you're doing the gestures in ink pen is a really good thing, as you are forced to do things right the first time. This really hones your instincts.
And your instincts seem to be better than ever. I'm liking this.
What I'd like to know from you is this: what direction are you going with your work, lately? It's great to have all this practice, but you're going to need to start applying it to something sometime soon. I'm very curious as to where you want to go from here.
Excellent progress! I see your brain at work, especially with the complexity you're getting with the green faced guy. I like all the modeling with the highlights, bringing dimension and solid form to the face.
Proud of you. I want to see more!
You know, i still havnt figured out where exactly id like to go, im thinking maybe something with game art. Or illustration.
