Although I'm doing this as a hobby, I decided to create a sketchbook and try to post everyday. Have fun.
Last one is the newest of course.

So welcome on ConceptArt!
It´s great that you created a sketchbook and decided to share your stuff. It´s all about practice, work each and every minute you can, and you will see improvement soon.
If you´re doing this as a hobby, did you think about life drawing? You may have lots of fun getting a real life sketchbook, taking it with you and just draw what you see.

@Katanasoul: Thanks. I'd like life drawing, if I could do . I'm carrying a notebook by me, but I'm more satisfied with my digital drawings.

I know, I know, it's so girlish.

@Vritra: Thanks. I didn't know about Posemaniacs, it's great!
As you can see, I'm trying to draw a bit cartoony stuff. But I agree, I should study some life drawing. I will try to draw some poses at Posemaniacs. I will post them. See you.

Just a quick one
Tried to draw a hand, it evolved into this one.

A simple body study
Working on the muscle groups. Not very good, but at least it resembles a human body.
Crits would be great about the anatomy. Still trying to learn.

A quick sketch again.

Quickie of the day
Here it is.
June 27th, 2010 #16
i'm liking that hooded, grim-reapery type dude. As for crits regarding that faceless, short-shorts wearing guy: I would say generally the anatomy is looking good, but the way his right arm is connecting to his body is a little wonky. The way his right arm is positioned, stretched out like that, would cause his right pectoral to stretch out as well, where in your drawing, his pectoral is behaving as though his arm is at his side. If I didn't explain that very well, I could try a quick paint-over for you if you'd be okay with it.
Anyways, this is a good start and I can't wait to see where you'll get to with a little practice. Keep posting!
June 27th, 2010 #17
Thank you. Actually, a quick paint over could help really if you don't mind.
June 27th, 2010 #18
Here you go, man. Hope this helps!
June 27th, 2010 #19
Helps a lot. Really great.
Thank you very much.

Broken Lawnmower: The biceps are in fact, not connected to the pectorals and are actually used in combination with the back muscles much more than the chest. You may mean the deltoids- the shoulder muscles that are used in conjunction with the chest muscles very frequently.
Gordebak: Drawing muscles from photographic reference will help you in your quest to learn anatomy. Drawing realistically in your studies will benefit you with more information to apply to your more stylized drawings.
"A drawing is not necessarily academic because it is thorough, but only because it is dead. Neither is a drawing necessarily academic because it is done in what is called a conventional style, any more than it is good because it is done in an unconventional style. The test is whether it has life and conveys genuine feeling."- Harold Speed

I agree with Pariano, always do it with a ref, because it will make it look that much better. Even though your only doing it as a hobby you should learn some anatomy,poses, and perspective, because it will make drawing that much more enjoyable!
June 28th, 2010 #22
I really like your lines!
As others said before, studying anatomy and other stuff makes drawing more enjoyable (talking from persona; experience here), as well as makes the one who studies them feel somewhat accomplished.
Also, refs are a God send, as Pariano said. You can learn a lot of things by simply observing your reference material carefully!
Keep up the good work!

I always feel cheating when working with reference photos, but apparently I shouldn't.
June 28th, 2010 #24
Some good work here - for now.
You should work on anatomy - as die others already said.
If you do not trace the reference it's fine to use them .
keep it up
Just another Journey...

Yeah, I feel awkward about using lots of reference photos, too. FWIW, I try to compensate by taking my own whenever possible.
June 28th, 2010 #27
@furiana: Yeah, I should do that myself too. But you heard N E X T, it's okay as long as you don't trace the photo.
June 28th, 2010 #28
Quickie of today
I can't call this piece of sh*t a sketch. I don't like it. But I'm here to fail and learn.
Crits please people.
June 28th, 2010 #29
Hi Gordebak, nice to know that you start you sketchbook on CA, from my point of view, I think it will be a great start if you keep practising on you line, means you can spend papers and papers just to draw 1 straight line without cutting them in the middle. This kind of practices will help to lose your hand and make a better drawing. And you can try with drawing a circle too. make it as round as possible
