Ive been lurking here for a while, especially in the critique centre trying to pick up some stuff, but Im determined to improve in my artwork
so ive made a sketchbook yay (8
Im mainly an animal artist but Im starting to learn human anatomy - Ive got some good internet resources including Andrew Loomis' online books, but any suggestions would be awesome ;]
Okay here's just some sketches and a WIP for the moment C:
Critiques, tips, suggestions etc ARE WELCOMED AND APPRECIATED

I love the little gopher in the top one, his expression is supreme! The hands seem a little too centered to me, though, with his smile so far to the left.
Your animal studies put me to shame. Great work!

Thx for commenting on my sketchbook, your animals are looking great but your human head is lacking ^^. You should invest in a medical skull, probably one of the greatest tools in learning how to draw the head. I say medical because the "art" grade skull is anatomically incorrect and cheaper.
Keep at it~ ^^

Some cute animal sketches, some of it looks Disney-ish. And Bridgman is another popular one for anatomy studies. Keep sketching and keep posting!

School is like a parasite - it sucks you dry of all energy and free time
