    Great start Voleman! That monster in your first post is kicking some booty. XD I'm totally digging your sprites too! =) I really like the expression you put in your art, it makes everything more lively.

    Have you ever heard of a website called http://posemaniacs.com/? It's an online gesture program. It's really helpful for those of us who don't have the time or money to drive out to figure drawing classes. ^^; You many also want to take a peek at some Andrew Loomis, George B. Bridgman, and Burne Hogarth books for proportions and anatomy. =)

    Keep those drawings coming! =D

    Thanks for those!
    I used to only draw monsters and stuff, but after lurking here a while anatomy and life drawings had come up a lot so I figured I should really get to work on that. I'm glad you like it, I'll have a bunch more stuff once I get a real sketchbook

    Sorry about all of the lined paper. I haven't had a proper sketchbook in ages.

    You should get one; or at the very least, carry around a bunch of loose leaf paper in a folder. Some of your sketches are neat, but when they're on lined paper, that really detracts from them.

    I agree with Hopebay, you should work on your anatomy. He made some helpful suggestions, but I can give you some handy links for working on anatomy. Fineart.sk is a great site to look at, they also have the various books by Loomis, or the pages in them, avaliable for free: Loomis. It's worth looking over and exploring, for sure.

    My next comment might sound a little weird, but your sketches have a sketch like quality to them. What the hell do I mean by that? Most of them come across as quick sketches, drawn fast to catch the most important lines, as oppose to a sketch that took a significant amount of time. I'd recommend taking more time on your sketches, and filling in the details, to give them a more "finished" look. It will help you improve, and give us commenters a better idea of your artistic ability.

    I like the piece of digital art you put up, although it looks unfinished to me, due to the background. The lines on the figure itself are fairly fine and detailed, which I like. What program did you use for it? Do you have a tablet at all?

    Keep uploading your work, the more often you give updates (particularily solid, quality updates) the more comments you'll get.

    Forget about rendering or detailing, focus first on intention and then proceed with structure. that way you'll avoid anatomy, and proportion issues keep it up!

    You have some nice looking studies, and I like the continuancy I see-- Like how the girl in the 6th picture down in post #14 looks to be the same girl in post #15 (to me, anyways, they have a lot of similiarities), just at a different angle. There are things here and there you could be better at or fix, but I'm not going to go into great detail on those right now. Keep it up!

    Thanks, Loomis' stuff is really helping. I appreciate the links
    The people looking the same is completely accidental though, I think I need to work on my diversity in faces and hair more.

    Actually here is a little facial practice

    And some more anatomy crap
