    Welcome! I must say, you chose an excellent first drawing to post.
    Unfortunately my computer is being an ass, so I can't click on your link, but I know exactly what you are talking about. I love White. Go go go! Let's see what you draw!

    You've really got a distinct line quality and way of handling the figure, but remember to dabble in realism a bit too. It'll help you stylize your figures in interesting ways.

    Keep posting, rah rah rah.

    Nice designs, I like them, I think they are original

    I think it would do you good to practice making cubes in perspective, you can build any kind of shape using cubes, even cilinders. Check andrew loomis book "Succesfull drawing" to undestand how: http://fineart.sk/index.php?s=16&cat=15

    Keep up with the awesomeness .

    Thank you christian, I actually know my perspective quite well but it's still hard trying to find "original" shapes that don't look so cliche which is what I try hard to do. I'll try to keep up with the awesomeness, I'll draw some more stuff and post it later.

    Good sketching man! It'd be great if you posted more of your anatomy studies. I'd recommend the book Constructive Anatomy by Bridgman...did wonders for me. Dynamic Figure drawing by Hogarth is a good book to get into once you've got some understanding of anatomy. Keep it up

    some great concepts in here,
    that one pannel from your comic -the girl playing piano- has some beautiful colors, the track just fits perfectly.
    The parallel dimension one is also nice, good contrast
    Keep on arting!
    I just took a break to post this.
    But sometimes I also draw stuff

    Thanks Kierra , im gonna visit your sketchbook soon I always like looking at your art. I was actually going for high contrast in that parallel dimension one in order to get my point across. Been playing my piano and drawing for like 12 hours a day so ill have a ton of stuff to post soon.
