Menjah's plethora of crappy drawings :D
Hello all! I'm menjah, AKA Liam Smyth, a 17-year old (I am now 18 ) living in Canada
Seeing all the massive talent on this website has recently put me into serious business mode, and I've realized that if I want to keep up with all the amazing artists on this website I better draw all the time. I hope to follow in the footsteps of Miles, a 16-year-old prodigy, and Defiledvisions, another awesome young artist, and to look back after a few years of daily work, and say - Wow! I sucked XD
Also, thanks to you both for keeping a record of your progress, not just deleting your old work when you don't like it anymore. You've really inspired me to work to get better!
(Miles - http://conceptart.org/forums/showthr...=97046&page=18)
(DefiledVisions - http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=123016)
So, assuming that I'm not just a talentless dope with aspirations of greatness and and an unrealistic vision, I present to you my crappy drawings ^__^
Criticism is welcomed with open arms

These are many of my older drawings, in order of age. I did the first ones when I was about 13-15. Unfortunately until recently I haven't drawn hardly at all for about 3 years, so I'm kind of at a disadvantage when I see some of the artists on this site D:
Also, keep in mind that this is basically everything I did during that time (if It seems like I'm uploading all of my crap sketches lol)
Looks like I'm going to have to multi-post, sorry!

Left one I tried to do using the front and side views, it's a good way to get 3d things into your head. Unfortunately, it didn't turn out that well. Maybe I should have used reference lawl
It took me like an hour to do these crappy little drawings. Boy do I need practice...

Man, this study took forever. Believe it or not, the crappy drawing on the left (stoned guy) took way longer than the girl on the right. There were so many more muscles shown in the diagram I used for him D:. I eventually gave up on shading him XD it was getting ridiculous. I should have focused on the directions of the muscles and not so much the shape, I really jumbled up all the lines >.<
Btw, I'm not even going to TRY to do a 3/4 view, that would just be insane lolll
but I learned a bit about faces lalalaaaaa

I will do a side view later but for now I need to rest my arm, I have a cramp XD.
Also, I think before I do it I will do something fun, like a monster or something
Ps yes I know left guy is lop sided, can't fix it now lol

Quick sketches of the day
Done on the same day as my muscle studies...
Doom monsters are copyright doom of course
AND THEN JOHN FREEMAN DREW THESE AT SPEED OF LIGHT
I drew them very quickly
I was trying to get my 'strong confident lines' going, trying new style
so they're not that good but o well
Notice that I basically never drew any feet or hands... I should do a study
