    DEJAs Sketchbook - Critique Appreciated

    Hello! I'm new to the ConceptArt forums but truthfully I've been admiring the artists here for a long time. : ]

    I've been intimidated to post and even now I'm kind of embarrassed of the work I have to show, but I'm doing it because I really want to get out of this rut I'm in.

    Any advice or critique you have would be greatly appreciated.

    WIP

    A quick sketch I did for my boyfriend that I'm going to fix up and hopefully color tonight.

    I really have to force myself to draw feet. D:Note to self. Stop avoiding the feet!


    @ Medusoid - I know this comment is *TERRIBLY* late but thank you for the kind comments. I definitely feel out of my league here so any and all feedback is hugely appreciated.

    The best thing to do, is to start on the basics. Like, the beginning, trust me. I'm currently struggling with the same thing, and the only way I can advance any further is to put some of my favorite drawing (mostly anime) on the side and work on structure of the real world. You just gotta be patient and determined, that's all.

    You definitely have some nice line work and I like the color choices you made on that first piece. One the one you said the head size was too small/large you could always quick select the head area in Photoshop and resize it. 'Course you could always redraw it but you seem to have detailed the head already and it looks nice

    Hey there! Nice stuff so far. I suggest doing some practice with basic forms and making them more 3D. Right now alot of your stuff is very flat. I was recently given a link to some really good exercises. They're for beginner animators but they're really good for everyone. 3D shape exercises


    Also I suggest some gesture drawings and figure studies. If you can get into some life drawing courses or groups that would be great if not, some temporary tools would be www.pixelovely.com and www.posemaniacs.com. Use basic lines and shapes to build your figures form the inside out and concentrate on getting the form and gestures correct before worrying too much about anatomic detail.

    sorry if any of that's old hat, just trying to give you some ideas on where to start.

    "This is a paint and pixel-splattered furnace that forges the swords of artistic mastery. This is a place where swarthy and belligerent dwarves drink turpentine mead, berate their apprentices and slap the trade into their skulls. It's where the anvils are made of graphite, the hammers are as true as rectangular marquee selections and the fires burn with the light of a thousand lensflares." --Jason Rainville

    Slowly but Surely

    Normally I color directly over my sketches and skip the line art process altogether but Wooden Mango pointed out that my art has been flat which I felt really rang true. It's something I've noticed for a long time but haven't been able to pin-point myself.

    So, instead of jumping straight to color I wanted to spend more time focusing on the forms. I know it's not exactly leaps-and-bounds in terms of improvement but I already feel like these small steps taught me a lot and my next piece will be better because of it.

    Long story short, there is still a lot I'd like to fix (and I'm STILL struggling with those darn feet!) but I'm working on it, slowly but surely.
