Kraut 'Em All's Sketchbook
So. I thought it was finally time to get my lazy ass up and start drawing.
My goal is becoming a (semi)professional concept artist (not necessary a good one). Or at least good enough to do some CD-cover arts and stuff. Sure it's still a loooooooooong way, but i'm doing my best to improve.
I'm trying to draw/paint something every day and post not less than once a week.
Crits and comments are VERY welcome!
Cheers you CA people!

hey krautemall, great start on your sketchbook too. very much like the dog and the two portraits.
lets see if i can add some cc...
the woman's breasts seem a little "high" to me, like they should droop under their weight a little, also her waist line seems awful thin compared to her hips
also the figure sketches, i guess maybe use some bolder lines? they seem very frail and kinda ill defined, try drawing them with more "certain" lines and maybe a lil darker
it feels like maybe youre sketchin them too small so its a lil "constrained"
maybe thats me, anyway keep it up!

Thanks for the comments!
@ask9: You're right with the girl's breast. The waist usually should be wider, but the model in the photo in fact had such a thin waist-line.
Also, you're correct with the figure sketches. I really should use some stronger lines. Normally i do them on real paper (woah!), but i don't have a scanner right now, so i did some in PS. But that doesn't change the need for bolder line Thanks for that!
So here's my stuff for today:
(Bolder) figure sketches from Loomis' Figure Drawing. Did them directly after waking.
Two portraits (done for SF0.org) and a WIP of my room.
Oh, and a flyer for fun.
