Hello, my name is Jon and well, here's my sketchbook! I want to become a concept artist/illustrator in year or ten (probably the later), and figure it would be a good idea to start posting here to help me improve! All crits are totaly super wellcome - help me kill my darlings.

I really like the figure in #8. I feel like your figures would pop a lot more if you preserved some of the harder edges. Very nice start though
Thanks mate, I'll keep that in mind. I'm someting of a coward when it comes to using much contrast in images, whenever it is soft/hard strokes, light/darkness or warm/cold colours. Anyway, thanks for the comment!
Heres some crit. The studies are cool, keep at em and eventually you will start to incorporate the forms of your figures into your own work
Looking at your own stuff, with regards to anatomy, try to use more contrast to get the muscles and forms to pop (would help loads on the greyscale dude u posted). Also, the last pic u posted, try to make sure that the perspective is right. The shadow looks very out of place as its just grey against the orangey floor. Look at some photo ref to see how light behaves in those conditions.
