    Hey AznKsor, nice you started a sketchbook here. I suggest you study proportions and anatomy side by side. For each drawing try and get the proportion as accurate as possible, you can use the 7 heads as measuring for example. Check up Andrew Loomis books on google, they're free to dl because copyright expired - and do photostudies and studies from life. Studies from life are most important, you will learn to see perspective and form from this.

    It's heartening to see such an enthusiastic response to the constructive criticism so many have spurned. In the interests of your artistic developments I would kindly ask you to go HERE: http://fineart.sk/index.php?s=32&cat=12
    Having done so you should then acquire a paper and pencil, sit yourself in front of the flickering monitor and DRAW THESE IMAGES. Learn the structure of the human body - at the moment while your attempts to learn anatomy show keenness and a desire to learn that is admirable they lack reference and as such will merely compound your errors.

    Hey Fellow Artist. Im back with more drawings. I haven't really post drawings in a while because My teacher would critique it. But I want to show you guys. Now before we start, I have to say THANKS! My drawings have improved. Im more strict about anatomy.Proportions,etc. I can see a huge difference with my drawings. Well here you go.

    i can see you have a lot of imagination so never loose that i would just say keeping studying anatomy and even better study value and form that has helped me amazingly.

    be sure to check my sketchbook in my signature

    What you need to learn at this point even more than anatomy is structure and gesture. For the first, take a look at Figure Drawing For All It's Worth by Andrew Loomis, and take a look through the articles at this link. You might look here as well, since the general concept is laid out pretty well, although in a much different style than you're working with so far. Essentially you want to be able to block in a figure with general shapes before starting to work on anatomy, since you can more quickly draw and comprehend a cylinder or cube rotating in space than something more detailed. You define muscles and the like after that.

    Gesture, that's something you get by loosening up and working with freer motions. What you want when drawing gesturally (and I admit it's a tough concept to wrap your head around) is not so much to draw the figure, but what it's doing and a rough idea of the masses. This sort of thing, really. You need to do a lot of life drawing to really master it, and not to be afraid of making a mess. After all, you can always draw something again, and if it's something you only invested 60 seconds in then it's not a big deal, right? You can get a bit of practice here, if you like, but drawing real people is much better. Just starting out I'd recommend setting it to 90 seconds, that'll still be pretty challenging, and do a few every day in addition to whatever other practice you do. It'll do you good.

    I actually like your work. The armour design shows you have imagination, which is obviously important if you want to do concept art. Other than that, work on anatomy ( I am doing the same at the moment) and shading some of your works.

    Good luck, you're doing great at the moment!
    Practice, practice and MORE practice..

    Hey man - I can see progress since your first post, no question. There's a lot of good advice already here (a lot of which I'm pretty interested in applying myself). All I've really got that's different than what I've read so far is my approach to learning anything.

    When I'm teaching marksmanship, I pass on the best advice I ever recieved about shooting. "There's no such thing as advanced marksmanship, just perfect execution of the basics." The longer I work on any undertaking, the more I realize this holds true in just about any endeavor.

    In my opinion, the basics are all that really make or break any sketch/doodle/illustration/painting. Line, edge, shape and value. What I'm doing in my excercises is trying to break away from drawing with 'mental stencils' and then dressing it up as nice as I can with rendering techniques, etc. I'm training my mind to work with what I actually see, not what my brain percieves.

    While trying to draw what you see, keep in mind line edge value and shape. Decide how best to use them. I.E. When is a thick soft edge applicable? What type of line best describes the insertion of the bicep ito the fold of the forearm. What is the darkest value I'm looking at on this face and what how does its shape describe the form of the subject.

    Once you've described the form with those basics, then you can worry about dolling it up or using interesting 'tricks' - while these may accentuate the piece, without those basics being executed, it's not going to add anything.

    Keep at it, dude. You've got the imagination, I'd just apply the advice already posted and keep striving to get better.

    -Paddy
