    I need critiques

    I've finally worked up the gut to post my stuff, took me a hell of a long time to figure how to actually post. I need lots of critiques, I've only recently been able to properly shade and get my drawings to a point where they don't look like squibbly , messy lines.

    Only recently?! You look as if you've been drawing for quite a while. Your figures have great energy, at times though they can look a bit squished together or distorted but you'll improve on that in time if you focus on it. Great start to a sketchbook!

    Thanks. I've only recently been able to get it like to look this. Before I could never get to this level of completion, it was always stuck in the rough gestural stage, and not to a point where it actually resembles the model.

    Some more life drawing. I can never seem to make a good face when it comes to life drawing. Argh, some of these drawings are also to squished from resizing.

    It always amazes me when people with your level of talent say they were afraid to post. I am like a child scribbling away compared to these lol. Anyway, these have a great sense of movement, and I would love to see how you do faces.
    My Sketchbook would benefit from your critiques.

    here's some more life drawing. My faces are bad but today it's especially bad for the one that I can actually show. Everything else is too shitty to even show. Don't know why but whenever I draw faces while drawing the body, I get horrible results. It's only when I draw them separately that they look half way decent.

    Good studies! Not much of a critique, but do you happen to have stuff you drew from imagination also?

    Awesome man!!! I love the last post. I think your stuff from imagination is really interesting. I like your colour choices in your painting, but I feel like the style suits better to a more clean execution. Right now it looks quite messy, but if you spend a bit more time to clean this up, and maybe in future, use a different brush... maybe just hard round? Or use lasso tool to colour, it'll look a lot more clean. But I love the design of it. Keep going with the stuff from imagination!

    I really love your gesture studies,very solid and energetic not much to say on them. For your character your wasitline seems to be inconsistent on the two pictures so I'm not sure how I should be looking at him if that makes sense. Also your should block in with fully opacity some shades to start with, your pieces look like your starting with low opacities on a white canvas which takes away some impact.
    But I am interested to see more if your ideas!

    Thanks. I did a bunch of characters by using rectangles and circles and other shapes. This one was my favourite so I decided to paint it. I wasn't exactly sure how to achieve the look of a blaring computer light in a dark office so I just painted normally. Didn't really know what I was doing so I just kept messing around with it. Wan't until halfway through that I got an idea to but a dark blue/violet filter over everything. It made seem more in the dark but I didn't like how it made everything seem so mono colored. So instead of a filter I just painted the stuff that wasn't in the light with the dark blue/violet color and it worked. The pic below the office painting was made a few days before so the design changed a bit.
