    Ionize's sketchbook - Time to improve!

    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.

    The first character is a bit too twisted, the ribcage and the pelvis don't really twist much, the shoulders do slide a bit, but not the chest

    Hey thanks for visiting my sketchbook!

    These paintings are looking good so far. I especially like the hands in the second last picture and the torso of the girl in red.

    Can't wait to see more

    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

    It's progress, NOT perfection.

    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!

    Thanks for checkin out my sketchbook dude.

    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.

    nice start, I especially like the pear with teeth & post no.5, keep painting, try out doing higher contrast paintings.

    Thank you for your comment!
    Your sketchbook looks really promising, I especially like your pencil work
    You seem to have a good sense of volume!
    About your 'guarding the well' painting, I think that the shadow she and her gun cast should be more towards the bottom left corner to fit with the shadows on her and her weapon.
    Keep drawing, it looks really good so far!
    My sketchbook - it's a little sketchy.
