This is my first skecthbook here. The story is the good old one: long time lurker finally takes up the courage to post his own drawings, etc. Since I am new practically to everything crits and comments are the most welcomed!
Jump to the last page to see the latest works! Thanks!

Nice start, man! great sense of structure and nice variety of styles. Just some general remarks: Keep an eye on foreheads! you tend to use them WAAAY too small (even for caricatures). Also you really should study those jawlines a little more - almost all of them look really strange in your last post (they look kinda detached from the face). And some technical stuff: using a flat black brush is maybe not the ideal choice for studying anatomy. At least I found more pencil-like digital brushes more useful for this purpose (transparency and/or flow set to pressure if you're a photoshop user).
That's all. Csak így tovább
I agree with Novbert - using a brush with variable opacity might let you create the illusion of form more easily. You've got a great start, though. Doing those head studies requires determination, and it looks like you've got it.
Ahh Frazetta studies, nice! I actually didn't know who he was until a few months ago ^^ it's fun to see how much influence he has had on artists. Turns out many of the artists I look up to copied a lot of his style.
You have a good sense of anatomy and proportions too. Keep enjoying art!
Thanks for dropping by my SB! Cool experiments with the outlines you did here. I also like the way you handle the cross-hatching, especially on the Delacroix studies, they render the cloth folding very nicely.
My vote goes for #3. The first two looks a bit flat and boring, the fourth is also really uninteresting with its symmetric composition.
What I like about #3:
- the slightly tilted view
- The well established relation between the snake and the woman (through eyelines)
- The S-curve of the snake
- Woman's face visible
- Asimmetric composition
Hey! Thanks for all the help you've given me in my sketchbook! I really appreciate it! I see much improvement from the last time I was here! The life drawings are really great and show much movement. Your linework is looking good too. The only thing I have is probably work on your shading more if you really want to render things out, like having more than one value Keep it up!
Those pen sketches and studies are really nice--the shark sketches I especially like.
The Eva Longoria painting looks a bit too "smudgy" in the rendering. Are you using the smudge tool, blur, or something like that? I would suggest using a harder brush like the simple hard round brush instead. I think that the face studies of your less finished face paintings are actually better than your more complete ones because the form reads so much clearer.
Keep up the good work. Your art is already progressing in the short amount of time since you've started your sb!
