    CCS' Berserk Sketchbook

    Alright, so it's finally time to start one of these things. I'll be posting most of my digital work I do for practice in this section. To start off though I'll post some stuff I've already done so you can get a sense of my work. A lot of it (and I mean a lot) is Berserk fanart, hence the title of the sketchbook. BTW that series is getting a movie, which you should check out the site for: http://www.berserkfilm.com/

    Thanks for looking and be as harsh as you want with critiques. If I want to improve I need the input.

    Here's a poster I made based on what I think the final volume of Berserk might be like. Following that are other fan work and practice images I've done.

    Hey there, pretty good start to your sketchbook - keep up the posting!
    I think it would be benefitial to really focus on the proportions since on a few of your poses they seem to be off (mostly the feet size and leg / torso ratio) but all in all not so bad. The majority of your linework is quite good though some gestures would be good to see - to train your hand to draw smoother flowing lines all the time.

    Lastly it would be helpful to know what direction you are aiming for with your art ( just hobby, illustrator, concept artist, animator etc) in order to tailor crits more to you rather than just general errors.

    Keep it up!

    Thanks for the feedback! I'll have to make sure I keep the legs the right proportion in the future. I know they're half of the body, but I don't keep as careful track of the lengths of the sections above and below the knee.

    At the moment I'm pretty sure I want to be an animator. I'm going to be working on an animation project in the Fall to see if I can really see myself doing that. I also want to do something with comics at some point as they're my first love, but that might be a side thing.

    Anyway here's more Milt Kahl studies.

    I still exist! This time another painting of Bayaz from Joe Abercrombie's works, and a piece of fanart for Kvothe from "The Name of the Wind". I'll try to scan some of my sketchbook drawings soon.

    GUUTSSS!y effort on your fan arts dude.

    your drawing is a lot stronger than your painting, i'm in a similar position and found this site really helpful http://www.ctrlpaint.com/.
    on a more specific note-
    in your latest piece of the guy in the street, the figure and the background dont fit together very well.
    it would look nicer if either the background was done with lines or the figure was rendered without lines.

    your Disney studies are also pretty good but i think you could get even more out of them if you drew the gesture and base form for each pose.
    here are a couple of links that you may already have - rads howtos and john ks curriculum.

    keep working hard

    Thanks dude. I'm taking a painting course this semester so hopefully those will get better. I totally see the style clash between Kvothe and the background. Animation tends to do that but in a still image I can see how it looks off.

    Thanks for the links. I've heard of John K but I hadn't heard of rads howtos before.

    Man I haven't posted much here in a while. I'm still drawing regularly in a sketchbook but I haven't scanned stuff in. Here's some digital sketches.
