    Zac's Sketchbook of Just a Tad Bit Strangeness

    Hello Folks,
    Conceptart is a community I've been wanting to engage in for quite some time now, as it's a site filled with a remarkable staple of styles and fine illustrations. Here's some of my sketches and pencil work (I've also got some of my comic art posted in the "It's Finished" section). I'd love to know your thoughts.

    Welcome to CA
    The heavy outlines tend to flatten your figure a bit over hey all fit on the page nicely. Post some more work.

    Thanks, man. I'll definitely chew on your advice.

    And I appreciate the comment. Feedback and comments are hard to come by on this site, so I'm grateful.

    Welcome to CA!

    I think it might be a good idea to start using reference for your figures and doing some anatomy studies. On your last piece posted, for example, there are some major issues with the proportions of her torso/arms, and doing some anatomy studies and learning some basic guidelines would go a long way in fixing that! The hands are really lacking in form and are very flat, so they feel like an afterthought on the figure. You've got a pair of hands yourself, so use 'em for reference!

    Thank you so much for the comment. I'll definitely work on them.

    I like your linework and use of blacks, reminds me I need to work on that myself! The cartoon characters you draw are interesting. It would be nice to see more of those for a change, but your comic book women are great! Probably your interesting line style. I agree with the comment "it's quiet out there", haha.

    Thank you so much for the critique. I often struggle with anatomy in many of my drawings. I've got a number of anatomy books that I study but I have difficulty retaining the info. I've been trying to come up with a sort of anatomy bootcamp, a regimen of anatomical studies that will discipline me into shape, but I haven't found any. If anybody has some suggestions, I'd love to hear them.

    Anyway, thank you so much for pointing me to Butkus's thread. I agree with your diagnosis. And I also really appreciate the comment. For a while there, I thought people weren't commenting because they thought my art wasn't worth it.
