Learning to draw(updated 3.10.)
I'm a 15-year old guy who likes to draw - sometimes. I do not study in some of those art schools, so I've learned everything myself.
I like watching other people's art and I'l want to create outstanding pieces of art, but I'm usually too lazy to study drawing. I have drawn pretty much last years, but usually not much in a month.
I have studied a little anatomy by reading Andrew Loomis's figure drawing book, but that's all.
Let's add some stuff now.
Super speed paint, done in ~15 mins.
And last, my latest WIP. I'd really like to have some help with it.
Thanks for reading.

Welcome to the sketchbooks, pate!
I recognize the fight scene drawing from the crit section. To tell you the truth, I feel like you started rendering too soon: the proportions in the main figure are off, I don't feel like the anatomy in the upper body is solid, and I don't understand what his legs are doing.
The guy in the foreground with the horned helmet looks a lot stronger, so I know you can manage it. What's giving you trouble with this one? Is it because you can clearly picture the foreground guy but not the main figure?

I've been lazy. But I'll try to do an update a week. Kick me if I do not.
Thanks for the comments. I decided to scrap the last picture and start it again from the beginning. But now, a new picture, a character concept. Tried to practice some anatomy

I think it looks like you've really got it in you. As someone else said, don't be too quick to start rendering. It's a bit like people working with 3D art that keep saying "don't start doing highpoly until your lowpoly work is solid".

Hello there. Its nice that your read loomis, and I can see you're trying diferent stuff, like enviros and vehicles, which is awsome.
Regarding your last piece, I can clearly see that the head is too small compared to the rest of the body. I made it bigger, see if you agree with me.

And for CHOW:
Feedback is very welcome. I've done much characters, so maybe I'll do something different next.

Nice work - really dig your concepts and themes. Your skin tones seem to be improving significantly from your first post. Your colors are fairly solid, although your values could use some work - try breaking things down into simple shapes when rendering, should make things easier. Keep working hard!
