    Are you -ready- to open this thread?

    Hey, everybody. You can call me Al (or Litho), and, uh, I'm new here.
    Firstly, I am amazed by this website and the people behind it - great effort for a great community. And I'm awe-struck by the quality of work even in this forum section! Are only seasoned professionals here?

    I've recently touched 22, but I have picked up a pencil just three years ago and started learning as much as I could. Mostly self-taught, but I have just found a very good drawing teacher. I study at University of Teesside, video game art, but am on hold for a year, because I want to learn traditional techniques more. But I am a 3D modeller and it is that which I ultimately pursue.

    Starting this thread with just two drawings:

    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1240529218
    (oh yeah, the foot and eye problems I'm aware of)

    Can I just give outside links, as it is a slight pain to upload files?
    Hope I'm not bogging down this section with my drawings,

    -Al

    Nice pencils man! Your anatomy could use some work but whose wouldn't?

    And yeah, you can use an outside source for your images. I use photobucket, although they deleted my images several times due to male nudity

    Keep posting!

    Hey Hansel and Bagg! Thanks for the comments!

    Hansel, what things about anatomy did you mean? What's off? I'm here to find these things out and learn, after all.

    Ah, 3D vvork is on a long hold, my friend. But maybe I'll post some in a month's time ;D
    There's a small project me and a friend are working on. A real-time surrealist viz.

    the column looks really great. your organic drawings look a bit squishy, watch the proportion, and you should add more contrast, by addind darker darks!

    Hey, Katzenminze,
    thanks for the crits!

    Even more contrast? Hm... I`ll definetly give it a try on my next portrait, to see what will happen to the material if I go that way.
    Some girl uses quite soft conte sepia pencils, and with that she destroys the gypseos material in her drawings and they start to look a lot more flesh like.

    In the mean time, there are quite a few drawings I haven't uploaded. So you'll have to, unfortunately, wait for a stronger contrast work till at least next thursday.
    After the sketch I work in usually 4B. I'll change that to 8.


    Katzenminze, you mentioned squishy. Is it because of, say, various facial forms, or is it because of slightly floating proportions, i.e. misalignment?
    For gypseos drawings, squishy is undesirable, so that would be a big mistake by me.


    Is male nudity not allowed here? o_O

    those skulls and the sculpture portrait look reaally good!
    by squishy i meant slight missallignment, e.g. in that womans face one of her eyes is smaler than the other and its not due to perspective so it looks a bit like its floating away.

    anyways you are iomproving really well!

    I am having problems with the higher contrast, though. Will be showing later perhaps.
    Also, after these, I'll show the weaker side of my drawing - from the mind, and hope to get some good pointers on those.

    As for these, I am kind of testing out the knowledge of concept artists, to see what critique I'll get. And to look at the reaction, as I'm interested in how this type of stuff is recieved in contrast to your usual orc and sci-fi chick.
