    A beginner sketchbook

    Hi,

    I decided to start a sketchbook here. I'm a beginner, so I will need lots of help and critique. I'll try to add at least one update a week.

    Here's the first picture:

    Pretty good first submission. I take it this is a digital work?

    Yes, it's made with tablet and PS.

    There's a new picture. A scetch for chow 172, a bored guard.

    Do you see any errors there? Is the anatomy and perspective allright? Does he look like bored?

    Thanks for comments!

    I don't have a scanner, so the quality isn't so nice.

    And update on the guard:

    I personally don't like it very much. Something went wrong there. Your thoughts?

    Ah. I see my help is required here.
    To begin with, the flame mage thing is pretty cool, but lacks overall contrast that would really make it pop, so I suggest getting some hot yellow-white colors on that fire!

    Now, the problem with the bored soldier.
    The problem occurred right at the sketch stage, when you misinterpreted the volume of a human being, so the soldier looks like a cardboard cut-out. There are also some anatomical issues, so I suggest doing lots 'n' lots of anatomy studies.
    Furthermore, The clothing that you chose is a bit awkward. This is what you have to think of when you're drawing characters or designing characters. For example, he's wearing a full battle helmet but not any other type of battle armor. He has a trench coat with some plates on it but they are mainly too small and spaced too far apart. I suggest you read into some battle armor designs to correct this.

    Hope you had some help from this comment. Cheers.

    WEEEEEE

    I think Bullsey covered most of the points I would have made. The line of books from DK Publishing can make for some really good reference if you are trying to replicated armour.

    The base sketch of the figure does have some anatomical inaccuracies, but that will come with practice. I suggest doing figures in the nude or with less clothing to build an understanding of how the human figure stands, bends, or comes to a repose.

    Thanks for your comments. I've tried to learn some anatomy, but seems like it wasn't enough. I see there's something wrong. I'll update with some anatomy studies later.

    The finished entry. I don't like it very much. I see it's too simple and it lacks of details. Is the shading allright?
