    Interesting style for sure, and it is so......
    different.
    I like the nudity.

    When I think I draw, so here's a sketch I did while thinking.
    In your drawings of women your not shy about exaggerating the pelvis, which makes sense. With your men you seem to be just reducing this exaggeration, which, as someone posted earlier, leaves you with women with penises.
    Men tend to be big chested, and narrow hipped.
    Maybe you could play with the exaggeration of the chest and shoulders with your guys.

    Also, Here's some snatched screen grabs from the Aeon Flux cartoon. Maybe you've seen it, maybe not. But, when I was doodling my picture there it's the first thing that came to mind. The emaciated wiry look.

    mm. thank you. :-) i like your drawing. i am shy about making my drawings from imagination too masculine, or adding any straight lines, but i'll see what i can do. i still like to retain an aura of femininity.

    cheers, oh and i've seen aeon flux. it's awesome. i really love that whole series. straight lines can be so cool and dynamic.

    One thing i'd suggest for when you draw males is that their jaw line is wider then females and cheekbones normally aren't as high. Try doing some actual photo studies of men and then try drawing the same face in your style. I think that might help, cheers

    I love masculinity, my fiance is a 6'4" 330Lb viking of a man lol.
    I look forward to your straight line tests - Characters with props or a limited setting, like a chair or table would be fun too.

    i think men's bodies can be sexy in their own way, but that's not usually the reality (but then again, i'm not often as attracted to men as women). i don't know, it'll be something i work through in the long-run.

    hmm.. i never said i would do straight line tests! lol.

    i don't just do chairs or props for the sake of it, unless it has meaning. if you have an idea i can illustrate that's what excites me for this SB. :-) i kind of like the idea of harnessing others' desires.

    Figurative representation of landscape... brilliant!

    I think the hair works, the painting is very symetrical and the hair reflects this. The fringe and jaw line are great too! She could be holding a rock though? (or is that too obvious!?!)

    Thanks for the c&c at my sketchbook.
    I am all for an original styles and I think there isn't wrong way of doing it. However I am also all for the good understanding of realistic form and lights. Let Pablo Picasso be the good example for this.
    You know what I think, you should try to build your forms directly out of a paint. Those are drawings of painter imho.

    I adore the angular head drawings. It's the first time I've seen you step outside your safety box and try something new. You seem determined to limit yourself at every turn. I hoped my anger-chair situation would give you an opportunity to leave your safety zone a little. You avoid all subjects but the figure, you avoid strong facial expressions. You avoid all styles but the one you've chosen - even if they could improve your fundamental skills and help you refine your own style.
    Why? Why do you limit yourself so much?
    Think I'm wrong?
    hmm.. fat guys..? that's not beautiful! babies.. i don't find them cute.
    Who says art should be cute? Why not fat guys?

    feelings or situations then i would like to illustrate them and put them up here. that's how i want to progress and grow on CA, rather than the usual "hey, do some anatomy. lol".
    I said anger- you said "I didn't feel like it."
    you know, for ages my approach has been to just let the characters do what they want on the paper. :-) that's what i usually do. got any other suggestions?
    The poster suggested you try storyboards...
    i've spent 7 years trying to find my own style that expresses me. why would i then want to go and copy some other artist's style?
    i'm looking for their ideas to help me grow.
    Yet your constantly dejecting ideas that aren't what you want to hear?
    Why this safety box?

    Very intrigued by your style here. Your last post has to be my favorite but i personally would like to see you use other mediums considering i wonder what it would look like using this style you have. Very interesting SB.

    Quite a unique style you have going on,although its perhaps little bit too stylized. Maybe do gestural drawings to flesh out the proportions. I could easily see you doing children's book illustrations or so.
    Keep it up!

    hmm, i don´t get what you want. on the one hand you want suggestions...on the other hand , if you get a suggestion you say:

    straight lines don't really turn me on
    fat guys..? that's not beautiful!
    you remind me on myself as a kid as i used to ask my mother what i shall draw...then she said, draw a tree... my reaction: "pff, no way" and kept drawing my little soldier stuff i always drew.

    sorry, but i totally don´t get your point. anyhow, keep on drawing!

    Breaking out of your comfort zone can only help you grow as an artist. (<-- pot calling the kettle black)

    (1 minute later: )
    if your figures are born of joy, how can they be angry?
    ah, I see, a fine artist. Still, you can expand your knowledge by trying different things - that hidden knowledge doesn't have to be reflected in the final artworks you present to create your artistic identity. If that makes sense.

    Here's a theme: squishing in the snow. I'd like to see how you interpret 'squishing'.

    Hello, interesting style you have going on in here. I like the way you construct your figures. If I may; I request you make some of them interact with eachother, that'd be cool. [:

    I totally second that.
    Doing exaggerated anatomy is totally okay, I love it too. But drawing the very same distorted anatomy with giant hips, fist-sized ribcage, stick-limbs and boobs which seem to defy any laws of anatomy, symmetry or gravity is not just unproductive - it can actually be harmful. I'd love to see more realistic studies - speaking of wich: studies in general.
    I see you love doing this girl drawings and I'm sure you could do it till the end of the days. But I doubt that would be the way of artistic improvement.

    what is your goal with this style? is it to create a comic book or graphic novel? is it to draw the perfect personal picture? where are you going with it?

    There's really nothing to critique until you share your direction

    i can't get to a life class at the moment. so there's no observational studies currently.

    it's not really a comfort zone anyway. it's a personal identity.

    the goal of this sketchbook as i stated at the very begining, is collaborative. that means people give me ideas to help me expand. not on the anatomical/structural level, but on the conceptual and symbolic level.

    my collaborative

    Okay so let me get this straight.
    CA is mainly for folks who want to improve themselves as an artist. A community where people try to give advice to each other on how to get better, give crits on each others work, et cetera. Not really for people who say things like "i've spent 7 years trying to find my own style that expresses me". Why? Because this includes that you'll refuse any constructive criticism regarding your so-called 'style'. (If you read just Elwell's quote in the first post here you might get my point. Or not.)

    Saying things like "i can't get to a life class at the moment. so there's no observational studies currently." only reinforces this. It's plain bullshit. You don't even want to do studies and learn about human anatomy. If you would you'd use the infinite amount of learning materials on the web, ask a friend to sit in front of you for ten minutes or just open up a frickin magazine and copied the photos.
    But you don't do that. Because you don't really want to improve anyway, do you?

    Be happy drawing in your style if you wish. But be warned. Unless you change your attitude - this site is not the right place for you.
