    the skeleton's "ärm" look extremely long and some of the proportions, like the lady in bikini, looks a bit off.

    are these asignments or random sketches? thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for the quick observations! These are just sketches. My friends and I got together and started a 24 hour Draw-a-thon, just non stop life drawing session for the art department.

    Skate Break

    This is my first Illustration Concepts project. The project is was titled Triggers: What happens today that triggers a memory from my past. For me, it's skateboarding sounds and the memories of my past injuries. Critique please

    Hey Mike! You've got some nice work in here. You're figure studies are nicely drawn and getting better rapidly.
    I think you could stand to make use of reference for your illustration assignment. The falling figure's body is contorted impossibly. The perspective, anatomy and lighting are all inconsistent. All the professional illustrators find or shoot their own reference, so there's no shame in doing it! The color in the skateboarding piece is also really chalky/washed out.

    That's a pretty stiff critique, but I'm only being so tough because I think the idea has real potential! Your other work shows that you have the skill to bring it up to a higher quality.

    Keep up the good work!
