    Hey Man thanks for leaving a comment in my SB really appreciate it.

    As for a crit I would say study the face it seems thats the weakest point on your figures at the moment, I know I struggle with the face too. I feel like your lines have a nice flow in some of these pieces that with more practice will turn out amazingly just keep plugging away =).
    Check out my sketchbook and comment/crit while you're there =)

    And more still: I believe you're doing something a lot of people do, and it is not a very
    good thing to do often. Are you drawing from photographs? Your folio (and sketchbook)
    are suggesting that you do. The drawings resulting from that look always great, much
    better then when drawn from life, but they're a bad habit.
    When drawing a concept (which is our endgame), you come up with something in your
    mind, place it in a good position in your mind and find a good viewpoint, in your mind.
    The only way your mind can do this is if it can think of your concept as three
    dimensional. This is difficult for the mind to do and must be practiced. Next you have
    to translate this 3D-object to a 2D-one, namely the picture on your piece of paper, by
    using your hand and pencil. The translation from 3D to 2D is also difficult and must also
    be practiced. Now if you draw from a photograph, then this translation from 3D to 2D
    has already been done, by the camera! It doesn't teach you anymore how to do this, it
    teaches you how to become a Xerox machine!

    To overcome this just draw from photos or from life ALWAYS thinking of forms rather than contours, in other words the only way to learn to draw from imagination is to draw from life the way you do from imagination.
    I can see that you've got some great gestures, man those drawings are alive and those forms are coming along nicely
    keep it up I've got nothing else to add

    update 28/11/2010

    thanks for the crits guys!

    BAMeyer: yep faces are one of the areas i've been avoiding so far, they're so complex it's intimidating. will get there eventually, just gotta do some perspective work first

    andres333: yep, totally agree! plus it's actually much easier to think in terms of 3d volumes because it gives you so much more freedom. without proper construction all you can do is copy, so I'm doing my best! the fact that I'm actually a 3D artist by trade probably helps me a bit


    some more updates, pen + marker again because it's just so great in bringing out the 3-dimensional forms with harsh lighting:

    another small update, some gestures, faces (just messing around, not doing proper construction yet), and - woohoo - something from imagination!
