    Hello, Nestor, welcome to ConceptArt!

    Some interesting work so far, certainly. You have not declared any aims so I hope this general advice is of use and not too pedantic.

    It looks like you are training a proper sense of detail in terms of shapes - shoulder blades, vertebrae, folds of flesh and veins. However, the proportions are not very comfortable, leading the good details to have a certain lack of cohesion and fall apart. It may do you good to do some heavy pre-drawing, tracing (straight) lines horizontally and vertically to see how things inter-relate. It helps to think of proportions as a separate task - i.e., you can be good at shading but not at proportions and train them separately.

    A little note on shading - you have shaded these drawings almost as-if they are marble, perhaps because the highlights are strong and shadows straight. Real flesh has several layers of differing properties and capturing that leads, I believe, to a sense of warmness and physicality.

    Keep drawing and I hope to see more!

    hello,

    good start. nice bum detail. lol.

    it would be more useful to say a little bit about your background and where you want to go in your first post. then people can help you more.

    first advice is to draw the head and legs as well as just the torso.

    OhgodIloveyouranatomy. I think it would wicked if you posted a surrealist sort of painting with your anatomical details focused on like the torso of a person. Dunno, sorry for spouting out random words.

    This sketch started as a portrait and it turned into a little story about a humanoid private investigator in the future. I had fun doing this cause it's really lose and unrefined. A friend of mine thought he looked like a fish, i'm not really sure what he is so for the time being he shall be known as Fatface....... Detective Fatface.

    incredible rendering skills, but be careful, some of your figures and faces come out looking a little stiff and straight, try to loosen up when painting and add some more curvature and rhythm in your poses and faces

    looks great though!

    keep it up.
    ...the imperfections make it interesting...

    get this asap. it might blow your mind.

    i feel like you're getting super detail oriented and missing out on the bigger picture. work on figures with movement and be really picky about your anatomy at the start.


    good brush skills. keep it up.

    I haven't been spending much time doing sketches these days because i want to finish some complete pieces. Also i'm trying to be careful because i have overworked my arm and it feels kinda weird. I spend a lot of time doing stretches and focusing on not tensing up while drawing. I also moved my tablet on my lap and it has helped because i have to move the entire arm to draw and not just the wrist.

    This is an illustration of an Orc Berserker.

    another critique..maybe try using larger sweeps/brushstrokes, and really think about proportion, compare one part (the head maybe) to the rest of the body..

    and maybe try to push the hues you use, liven up your pieces a little bit..the colors are a little toned down (unless that's what you're going for)

    either way, the berserker looks great, and the piece before that appears to be less stiff..it'll take time to fix that, but atleast you're aware of it.

    keep working at it!

    Ah, about the last piece; I was wondering where this neck was. Work on your anatomy studies, and I have to agree with Dope Fiend. Add more vivid colors!
    Keep drawing though! You're well on your way.

    KingKostas: Να σαι καλά φίλε, σε ευχαριστώ για την κριτική.

    Dope Fiend: I have a tendency of going for more desaturated colors, i think they create the kind of mood i am looking for. It's not a rule though.

    Mila: Lol, i actually didn't want him to have a visible neck. I probably should've given him a hump so the lack of neck makes more sense.
