    DMadds's Sketchbook

    Hello. I am not new to CA per se though I have rarely posted. I am looking to continue growing as an artist and though getting some crits from the folks here might be a good way to do that. Please feel free to crit all work as I would take appreciation to it. Thanks and enjoy!

    This image is a few months old. But I thought I would post it anyway. As I am still getting this set up.

    I really love the pencil pieces, I just think the painted one really stands out due to the fact it's painted. I cant wait to see some of the others painted

    Awesome work, I think it's pretty solid, however... I think you really need to pay attention to proportion. Because it looks like you have a good idea of general anatomy, but your proportions are often skewered or off. Pay more attention to form.

    Undeadartist - Thanks! It is more finished than the others. I had a lot of fun drawing that one. In fact. i drew it, scanned it, painted some, printed it, then drew on that and THEN re scanned it! just trying some new things.

    hey, cool stuff DMadd.
    as Enydimon said,seems like you miss with proportions a few places

    and on the last one.. the Thor/Odin (with a gun ) and wolf, if your going to work more on it, his left brace seems a little off and you should try to redraw the wolf face with refrence
    and as i said, this is really cool stuff, i want to see more.

    *goes back to practicing*

    gnilrE - You are correct. His arm looks sort of broken. And the wolf face is JANKY! But I prefer to move on and keep working on the next thing. You know the sad thing is this...I tried to use reference. I just did a bad job Will do better next time for sure! Thanks for the feedback!

    Stylization is no problem at all, but it has to look like stylization and not like bad proportion if you understand my meaning. In your first post, the guy's forehead doesn't really match up with where you want his head to go. It's just round all the way around but heads do not look like this. The head kind of flattens on the sides. In the second post, the third drawing, his legs look really short in proportion to his torso, which is quite long. In the third post, for the most part it's alright, but his leg furthest to us doesn't really match up. to where the calve would end. In fact it's a bit too forward from it.

    But you're doing really good. You could probably just benefit from practising and thinking form in terms of planes. I'd read up on some anatomy books, and not only copy what's there, but read how it functions so you get a good idea of how it's working. It seems you know how most of it looks, but you could also benefit from understanding how it all functions.

    I hope that helps and isn't too harsh. I think you have a great potential here and this is going to be an awesome sketchbook to watch.
