    Right on. Got some good stuff in here. So, since you are young and just getting ready to hit the pavement hard I would suggest you start with some anatomy studies. Got any anatomy books? Draw the illustrations. Learn how the human bone structure is put together and then the muscles. It pays off.

    Welcome to CA.

    Visible improvements here, Neon. I agree with Van, anatomy and proportion are the most important things to learn first. There are some great things online by Andrew Loomis, www.saveloomis.org, and plenty of great stuff here and at The Society of Figurative Arts, www.tsofa.com, both are well worth checking out. You're off to a good start, I'll check back in a couple days and see how you're doing. Welcome to CA and best wishes.

    Oooh, its great to see earlier stuff. Since you have been drawing like that since you were 13, you must have a built up library of cool stuff/charectors, keep drawing and set it free! That was cheesier than the seriously strong chedder cheese toast next to me.

    But seriously your inspire me to give more commitment to my drawings, and draw the cool stuff I like.

    scribblings!

    make sure to make guide lines before you start to draw/paint, i can see in your girlfriends portrei that your lines are off, make some facial or anatomical studies if htat is what you want, in a year or two you'll look back and be happy of the progress you've made, i know, i'm laughing now at my old stuff


    great pics, and the key to progress is to think of what you do and how to improve it, and most of all, draw every day. EVERYDAY !!!


    cheers ! and welcome to the boards !

    Hey guys.

    Van: Thanks! ya i have one book, i did download 5 loomis books, but i had to reformat this f-ing comp because its a bastard. i hate doing anatomy studies, but i guess it has to be done..woo.

    IanE: Thanks dude. Read above haha.

    Harry: Yo man, I dunno how many drawings i got, prob not as many as ya might think. I inspire you? wow thats rich haha, never thought i'd hear that from no one.

    Hurricane: Omg. Thee hurricane just left a comment...whoo hoo! Thanks man, you really inspire me. awesome stuff you got.
    Yea i'm starting to use guildlines. hated them, but they useful, and my girlfriends face isn't as off as it seems, just that damn scanner, but a little i guess. Man old stuff really disinspires me for some reason, and i start drawing really crap...not good.
    I draw nearly everyday... i think i give up to easy... oops.

    I won't be updating for a few days, cause i've had alot of trouble with windows, damnit, gunna get linux soon hopefully tho its harder to use, i'll try anything to get away from windows.
    Does anyone use linux btw?
    Thanks all

    hey doood. Good start on the anatomy studies. The main thing that jumped out at me is proportion. Gotta watch that.

    Also, just a suggestion, you might want to post a tad smaller. I've got a fairly high screen resolution, but I was scrolling to the right.

    Looking forward to seeing more.

    Cheers,
    ~Shane

    Nice update man, the necks came out quite nice. The head on the first page, bottom right, the dude needs more head in the back. He's missing like a third of his head.

    The skulls need some work in the mouth area, and last, justwork on the fingers and toes.

    Like I said, nice update.

    Whats up

    Ok you did asked for full hard critics to here they come,
    dont get me all wrong, I still like your work and
    I belive you have in you all to become a great artist.

    First than anyting take my advise with a
    pinch of salt, Im just learing like you

    Its not bad for a first try, I think that right now
    you are coping shapes but not quite understaing what
    happens below the skin, let go of the pretty rendering and
    use only lines and shapes to convey a sence of volumen,
    the skull shapes on the first post is way off, the head in the lower
    right fells detached from the body, the calvicle bones are in the
    wrong place, the head in the middle of the page looking upwards
    has lots of problems on the neck area, the central mass of the neck
    should be like an inverted triagle, not a straight bumpy line.

    The skulls on the second page are very flat, and the cervical column
    of the neck looks too wonky, try placing your anatomical parts
    on prespective, imagine the skull as a sphere and the mouth feature
    as another sphere protuding out just below the first sphere,
    the arms and legs on the second and third pages are the best
    in terms of dept, even tho they still have lots of construccion
    errors here and there.

    Studing Is more about understanding and involving the brain
    in the drawing process, IMO it should be as much brains as
    drawing, so that when you have done lost of them it becomes
    intuitive and then leave the brain part working for you on the back
    of your head, studing can be pretty hard, and some time very VERY
    frustraing but is the only way to get better, so there ya go,
    keep on doing this but think of the reasons of why this or that
    shape looks the way it looks before placing any line.

    Well that is all for now, I expect to see more studies
    from you in the near future, keep it UP, and have fun,
    bw keep on doing the imagination stuff aside the antomy or
    you will get saturated, belive me, I did that for some time
    and it can be frustraiting, doing imagination things
    can be a good release for a tired mind after a
    study session

    P. S. you prolly have heard of Kchens studies,
    and of mentlers studies too, I sugesst using them as
    base to understand how the main shapes of the body work:

    Kchen:

    hey what's up, apparently I'm now in SSG2, so just thought I'd post this introduction in all of the member's sketchbooks.

    It's really late right now, but I'll definitely try to go through your sketchbook thoroughly and offer some crits tomorrow morning. My main crit now is to fuckin UPDATE.

    Okay, no posts in WAY too long. I demand you draw! Actually, I am really just asking. PLEASE! It is good for the soul and some people even are good enough at it that they make money. But you will never get that far if you DON'T DRAW! So, for the sake of the cheese, DRAW! Now that I am done embarrasing myself, adeu.

    great stuff man. i love the one of the armchair. good values there. my advice? maybe slow down and be a little more calculating with your hatching. remember, the flow of a line will denote form, so work out what form the image needs before going gun-ho and giving it what-for, you get me? hah. you should post the results of your field-day (get it..? field-day... as in you painted a field? yes? maybe? no? ok! )

    really nice looking stuff in here - like the general direction in which you drawing is going, great feeling for form in some of of these! Try to be a bit more aggressive with the markers, and don't afraid to go darker!

    ciao!

    Hey, welcome to our sketchgroup Madcat!! My opinion would be that your style is fine but try not to get caught up in a style at this moment in time just learn as much as you can your style whether its an anime type style will eventually shine through your hard work and determination. Good start here i would work on strucutre but you have alot of good stuff here. And you could not have been more correct me getting more hardcore rendering in my sketchbook. I'm glad to have you apart of your sketchbook.
