    A little sketch I did of a table while I was at a restaurant with my Mum and her friends for lunch today. Might not be going back there again anytime soon, though. My Mum had steak pie and the pastry was like charcoal, and my mashed potatoes tasted of nothing.

    More box figures than a box figure factory working on a new batch of box figures.

    Some quick sketches from the restaurant. Most of them are modelled on my Mum and her friends, because there wasn't a lot of people around

    That sketch at the top left was the beginning of a sketch from that posemaniacs site, but I couldn't get my head in the game when I tried to sketch it. And that boy in the middle is actually from a painting that was hanging beside our table.

    Jings, I'm not exactly updating my sketchbook as much as I should, am I? Bad me.

    I thought I would update with a drawing of Flik from Disney's 'A Bug's Life'. Someone over on Fanart Central requested it, and I'd like to know what you guys think, please?

    Go on. Be brutal! (hides behind a steel wall)

    I like your Freak character. His face reminds of of WWE Kane's old mask. The ant character looks good.

    You've got good instincts for this. Just build on that foundation. Ron Tiner's Figure Drawing Without a Model is a great book. However take into account that the name of the book describes a goal to attain and not a method. To achieve that goal requires a lot of drawing from human beings, be it reference or live model. It's a long process of osmosis and then regurgitating as we try our best to recreate human beings from our heads. The more you know the more you can do. It's quite amazing how this works at times.

    Study: Basic shapes/ figure construction from simple ''skeletons'' on to construction with simple shapes.

    Practice your observational drawing skills with still life. The better you are at seeing and interpreting information the more you'll get out of your studies.

    Get your hands on as many sources as you can. Look up Andrew Loomis, George Bridgman, Burne Hogarth, Glenn Vilppu.

    All the work you'll put into it will pay off. That's the cool thing about it. You get your rewards! Rock on!

    Thanks so much, Eon I'll keep practising as much as possible. I actually had recently ordered a few of those books via amazon.com and I've already got 'Figure Drawing Without a Model', but it's taking me a while to devour them all!

    I'm so glad I registered on this site. All the artists here are so awesome and it's giving me so much inspiration.

    One of my problems, however, is that sometimes so many ideas come into my head at once and I don't know which one to focus on first :B

    Sketch of a table while I was at a restaurant for lunch with my Mum today. I pencilled it out first, then did the shading with a ballpoint pen. You can see that I tried doing some other sketches of a salt cellar before the table, but it turned out terrible. I really must keep a wider range of pencils with me besides a 4H.

    And also, I really need to work on drawing circles.....

    Hey Trisscar

    I agree with most of the crits here: look at anatomy and meanwhile keep on drawing comic style stuff. You'll find they complement one another at some point. The boxfigures can be put to work in realistic drawings too, and anatomy knowledge does help comic figures look more real (even if mostly they have totally unrealistic and thus comical anatomy).

    Personally, I like the Freak character (the cenobite style suit, the armflaps).
    Try and put him in some solid cast: i.e. always 6 heads tall for example.
    Btw 6 is arbitrary here, just see what fits the character best.

    About the Freak: he looks friendly in most pictures. Is he a nice guy, gone haywire?
    Or is he really just a solid bastard through and through.
    Oh and thanks for posting in my thread. Now draw! draw! draw!

    Thanks very much for your advice

    Regarding the Freak..... I'm really still trying to get his character down without turning him into a Gary Stu. I'd like to think that he was a prisoner of a place similar to Hell, but was caught on his first escape attempt (resulting in those interesting marks of his). He manages to escape the second time and finds his way to a city.

    He tries to be a good guy and a hero, but sometimes his psychotic tendancies get the better of him and ends up almost taking things too far. In my first comic of him, he rescues a young woman from a gang of thugs intent on robbery and assault, but he gets carried away and nearly gores the face of one of the thugs with those claws of his.

    I suppose he's really still a work in progress. As has been suggested, I need to refine him a lot more. In those concept drawings I've done, he's like a yo-yo dieter I need to stop screwing around with his body shape!

    Work in Progress

    This one is just a work in progress. I started sketching it while I was on holiday in June, but forgot all about it since.

    I'm stuck on what kind of background I should give it, if any. Anyone got any ideas or advice to throw at me?

Size:  110.7 KB

    Freddie the Frog, from the 1992 movie 'Freddie as F.R.O.7', one of the worst animated films ever made. I'd seen it on tv a couple of years ago, and more recently I watched the uncut version on YouTube. I never knew that there were two versions. It was the American version I saw on tv and America pretty much murdered it by cutting out so much of the movie, trying to make it more 'moralistic'. They cut out any innuendo scenes, murder scenes, a few fight scenes (phew!) and a whole song. Not that it made the movie any better....

    Despite the rigorous editing, I noticed that, during the song 'Lay Down Your Arms', there's a lyric saying "we rape the land and tear the skin" 0_o' How did they miss that?!

    I enjoy nostalgia

    This was drawn with Sai

    Bitey Sketches 2

    I know I really ought to be working on my anatomy skills, but...

    Name:  Bitey Sketches 2.jpg
Views: 1121
Size:  59.4 KB

    A couple of nights back, I had a dream that I was working on an animation (lordy but I need to get out more) involving this little guy, Bitey of Brackenwood, and I felt the urge to do some little sketches of him in flight. I am a huge fan of Adam Phillips' animations.

    I kinda buggered up the sketch on the left there. He's supposed to be turning around in mid-air, but I didn't capture it very well

    ...huge fan of Adam Phillips' animations.'
    You and me both! and your Bitey sketches are cool

    Lets see a few sketchbook pages covered with anatomy practice - try and keep it energetic and see the individual muscle shapes and remember the structure / proportions of the skeleton - go for it!

    I gotta remember to drop by more often

    I wanna see at least one page of anatomy practice next time I visit!

    (Looks guiltily at the floor) I know I should be getting going with my anatomical drawings, but I'm also busy looking for a job..... Ok ok, poor excuse

    I've also been busy with some request drawings on another website. All people want me to draw are Sonic the bloody Hedgehog pictures! >:C

    I actually did this about 2 years ago in Photoshop, using a screenshot of 'The YuYu' as a reference. I love the music in that animation

    Really cool stuff

    (still getting the weird feeling SOMETHING is missing from your sketchbook though ... I wonder what IT could be ... )

    Hope things working out with job etc and you're learning to turn down request pics of cartoon characters that annoy you!

    Rock on

    I have also had that problem with .swf files etc - I think the only animation type you can upload are gif files which can be awkward to create and badly effect page loading times

    The other option of course is to open a youtube account, upload your animations there and simply use the '[yt] insert link here [ /yt]' thingy to show it in posts here.

    All the best with getting a job etc and cool to have practice with commissions!

    I've got a lot of bad habits regarding my anatomy drawings, but I'll definitely keep trying to break those habits.

    Yay - anatomy practice! This is more like it - try imagining the skeleton structure with muscle and skin on top. Practice, practice - and try to practice with simple looser strokes too - form and expressive character.

    Good work so far - keep it up

    Perhaps I shouldn't have tried to include muscle structure yet. I haven't done a very good job of it

    Thanks so much! That posemaniacs website is fantastic Although I tried to use newspaper cut-outs for referencing, but I had a hard time imagining the muscle structure.

    I probably shouldn't have tried to draw birds' eye and worms'-eye view yet. Or hands. The woman on the right looks like she has tentacles for fingers.

    No no - it's great for you to practice different views so long as you practice accurate anatomy. Try doing pages of really quick anatomy sketches using the posemaniacs 30 second viewer too. Also I'd like to see how your figures are without the box guides - instead try to imagine them in your head as you draw

    I'm hoping to start doing a few more of my Dynamic Energy challenges - my aim with those is to help the entrants learn and /or test themselves so you should join in! That would be cool

    Sorry I'm not giving you many crits at the moment - I feel you are learning pretty good just by drawing more for now. Having said that, that dude in the last page has HUGE shoulders!

    Keep at it!

    Ok, I'll give that a try, perhaps after a couple more box-figured sketches.

    What's this Dynamic Energy challenge all about, then?
