Since everyone seems to have one and I haven't got any place to show my sketches anyways, so here it goes. Feedback is welcomed as the main reason for this sketchbook for me - is learning. From what you might have to say, to advice, etc.
Here's some stuff from my DA scrapbook: Attachment 1075718
the oldest one since high school, the card-playing goblin Attachment 1075721
also from high school, some warrior chick Attachment 1075722
sketches for the game(all except two on the lower left) we've just finished making. the concept of the game was completely rewritten, so those are not included and it's ok to post it. Attachment 1075723
Same here, except for Fallout's Harold in the lower middle and cat creature from Perfect World mmo on the lower right, which could be considered the fanart. Attachment 1075724
Lewis Carroll's characters done for the heck of it. Attachment 1075727
Faces - some from the real world, some from my ill mind. Attachment 1075728
Creature concept I've done for Tamriel Rebuilt mod for TES4Oblivion - Hammerfell part of it. Attachment 1075730

Hey, welcome to the CA.org! It's always nice to have here fellow russian artist. You've got some skills and moves already (as stylized character look decent). My advice will be simple - study anatomy. Even if you're planning to do more cartoon-ish art, knowing human anatomy is essential for any artist. So do studies, as much as possible, and just don't stop.
Hi Umbinc. Welcome to CA and thanks for stopping by my sketchbook. You have nice cartoonish style with characters. The one with you and your cat is excellent. Only thing though. The cat looks too simple compared to rest of the picture. Last guy is great with his bony fingers. Keep posting!
Hey there. You have a good start to a sketchbook here! I like your fly-man design and the tall skinny man with the cat on his shoulder. It's also good that you're playing around with grotesque faces.
It looks like you're heading in the right direction. Be careful about putting the lines between teeth in on women, it emphasizes the teeth -- all right if you want to give them character, but too much contrast if you want to make them look attractive. Otherwise it's mostly a matter of what proportions and shapes work the best, and you'll find that through a lot of experimentation.
I like the cartoon of you and your cat. Hope you're not offended by the use of the term 'cartoon'. I consider myself a cartoonist as well as illustrator. So it's meant to be positive. The weird 'fly' creature is pretty creepy looking.
Seraph Fawkes, Yesss... Anatomy. Gotta learn so much... Will do.
vineris, thanks for the tips, I'll remember that next time.
BlackDelphin, yes, that is pen
As I promised - more works to come) Attachment 1076649

Hey there, you've made a great start on your sketchbook. Niice
I can see you've got plenty of imagination, so that's no problem
At the moment I can give you two advices.
1. Draw, draw, draw! Sitting still wont help you improve
2. Buy an anatomy book as soon as possible, they really help a lot, next to drawing from life. I can advice buying a book from either Loomis or Bridgeman. (or both ) IF you dont know what I mean, be sure to ask
Great stuff you have in here! You have a lot of imagination, it's really nice the stuff you come up with. I would recommend drawing three dimensional forms and working on perspective (not that I know anything). Adding a little more form to your drawings will really push you to the next level. Keep on going! Good work!
Post some of your studies.
Do figuredrawing and anatomy, then go to your imaginative work. And if you're totally into it, then do the studies, then redo some from your head to see what you remember and then go to the imaginative stuff.
