    Character Sketches/ Designs of 2009

    Hi all, I'm sort of excited to be back in CA at the same time extremely nervous about posting my works here, lol. It's been such a long time. I don't know how much I've improved through these years, but I've been working really hard to get better, and I still am trying. I'm still craving to learn from everyone here - your knowledge is a gift that I'll be forever grateful to receive. So please share anything you can think of, I'll appreciate it greatly.

    -Cris



    First I'd like to start off with some older sketches I did a couple of months ago. I've been working on character designs for a comic book idea that my buddy and I are doing.

    Welcome back
    Well, I'm certainly not one of the better artists CA has to offer, but from what I can see everything's looking great! Of things to work on, probably faces and portraiture. The most obvious example would be the first character. Other than that, everything's looking good! I'm sure people would love to see your other sketches showing your journey for improvement (I'm sure it could help others as well). Keep up the good work!

    BranFlakes: Thanks so much for the kind critique buddy. Yes definitely faces are one of my million weaknesses, haha... I still got a long way to go.

    The detail is looking great, however it doesn't cover up anatomy mistakes. The mistakes in the faces are most apparently in need of work, but I suspect that if the costumes were taken away the rest of the anatomical mistakes would become more obvious... I suggest working on anatomy without the costumes... if you improve your foundation, the details of the costumes will look twice as good.

    Liffey - Thank you sir! Im like one of those self-taught artist that skipped the foundation and skipped right to drawing super heroes and anime/manga characters, lol. I just ordered a few anatomy books for christmas that im gonna look over when it arrive. Also im taking figure drawing classes with a buddy of mine. it's a slow and frustrating learning process, but i hope to get better and fix my mistakes.

    Hey Cris-
    Remember what we spoke about the other morning. Check out the masters. Surround yourself with reference. Start files on faces, hands, feet, clothing, weapons, etc... Have a good Christmas with your family. See you Monday. - Mike

    yo cris, these are great concepts, and might i add very sexy too hehe.. but yes i agree with Liffey on establishing your base anatomy skills. though it looks like you already know most of the basics. keep it up, i'll be watching your sketchbook!

    Awesome characters! Really neat lines and rendering as well as some cool designs. The gauntlet of that elf girl is realy outstanding. Awesome detail man.
    Only tip I can really think of is have your line describe texture a bit more. You can draw everything the same. meaning that cloth looks pretty flat. Add some more folds and bumps in your lines and be sure to render metal differently than flash for example.
    But you cool stuff keep em coming!
