Hey JoeS ^^
Nice stuff so far some of them look very nice ^^ keep on updating and hard-working...
to really improve i would advice you not just to upload stuff which u like also stuff which you dont really like to get advices from members of these community to improve ^^
keep at it
Sweet looking dragons! The bodies seem a little stiff though, maybe make the limbs a little more fluid? Not as boxy. Don't know if that makes sense but there it is . Cool armor concepts too, very lively, keep at it.
wow, your only 15 and your this good at drawing, all im gonna say is, keep it up mate! in a few years who knows where your work is going to lead you =D
you just got ramzo'd
check out my stuff! http://www.ramz0.deviantart.com
You should wait before using colour.
Grow further with your line drawings before even concidering using colour.
Sketch sketch sketch.
Damn you suck (lol not in a bad way) I mean cause your so good so young i'm 18 and you like 2x better then me give or take a couple times . Keep it up
These sketches look very nice, one thing I would advise would be to make them abit more dynamic, I couldn't help but notice how very little movement there was, some of the body parts dont really correspond with the movements of the larger, parenting body parts, but other than that, I think that you are excellent, I started on this site whenever I turned 15 which was around last year and I have to say that you are doing a hell of alot better job than I did, keep posting
in regards to your last post, I must laugh, because I recently bought the same book, and I went to look for the poses you based these on... XD
your human anatomy is already far better than mine, (Ib being the same age as yourself), but your creature and armor design seems to be lacking in the detail department... don't be afraid to experement with unconventional designs, heavy shading, and and add in little bits of veins, spikes, ad perhaps natural armor plating to your dragon designs... they look abit dull otherwise... the same goes for the armor!
alright, now that I have posted my useless bit of advice, carry on and have fun!
ah, something else I must try someday... apple studies... well, acctually, I really need to do quite afew studies of nearly everything conceavable... because I seldom ever do, and it would probably be benificial...
ut of course, the battle against procrastionation is always a loosing one... I only just started work on a contest that's due in about sixteen days! argh...
ooooh, I like the 'finished' piece you have there... although I wouldn't call it finished...
the hair you have placed attop her head does not really resemble hair... I sugest going in and drawing thick and thin clumps and strands of hair folowing the direction of that... shape... and be sure to add some flyaways for effect as well!
and... detail... is... lacking...
I mean, you did a good job rendering the clothing, but it all seems to be rather monocromatic... add some designs on the cloth, perhaps some metal plates somewhere, or chains and belts of some kind flowing accross her waist... the piece just sort of looks empty without some sort of minute accesory items...
that's just my opinion of course, feel free to call it finished if you want, but keep what I've said in mind for future pieces...
Thanks zypherax, I'll remember for future work, though im not going to dwell on this piece for now
Haha, yeh its suppost to be John Locke though I think it lacks a forehead lol, the top left is meant to be Jack Black and the bottom ones are Kratos and Marcus. I'll check out your sketch book for sure
I like your work and you are going the right direction when it comes to proportions. My only qualm is that your bodies look stiff to me. But,then again, this is coming from a guy who draw cartoons a lot so I could be wrong.
Joe, i see a lot of wonderful things happing here, your on the right tract, draw, draw, draw!
nice sketch book coming on, can see some improvment along the way.
I like seeing the pratice pieces, the facial proportions need a little work and positioning of features on the heads that are slightly turned.
I found a few books on how to draw cartoons the most helpful, they broke the head down to basic shapes and where to put guidelines etc so the face doesn't look distorted.
Look forward to see more stuff, it just keeps getting better.
Disclaimer: I'm a noob myself so advice to be taken at own risk
Dont stop, man! Good sketches.)
whoa dude... dumb founding sketchbook... im a fan... seriously... how did ya get so good? love the whole medieval warcraft type concepts... im a fan myself
I haz no talent !!! sketchbook! Help meh !
hey man, very cool character designs! just keep working on your anatomy studies, they are looking good too, but theyll make your original characters look much more natural, not so stiff. but your definately moving in the right direction, especially for being just 15 yrs old!
only thing you need now is dedication, dedication, dedication... go for it!
You can only become better. Right now you are very good!
Hey thanks man Yes I need to commit more to this instead of skateboarding all the time lol, but I have gcse's coming up soon so I'll have to lay of both for awhile
It really depends. If you wanna digital ink it, it's enough shading. Besides. If you go traditional then yes, you need harder shading to represent better, however, if you like to sketch on paper transfer to digital and ink and color in PS, then it makes no sense since you'd be overriding the shading with color anyway. In digital you need those hatches just to remind you how the shadows look, not necessarily to give a feel of 3dness to your character. You can do that afterwards through the painting process.
You've got some nice sketches comming along, what I'd recommend the most to improve is everytime you finish a drawing/painting, find some professional work that is similar to what you wanted and try to figure out what you have to do differently to make yours look like theirs. The answer won't always be clear but if you continue to do some traditional studies from life and anatomy the answer will more often than not come with practice. Keep at it
