    Improve or perish! Dennis Sketchbook

    CHECK THE LAST PAGE! NAOW!

    Greetings!

    My name is Dennis. I have been drawing seriously since about September-November 2010 (although, the first six months or so, I still spent considerable time on stuff such as computer games, daytime job and such). In 25th November 2010, I bought a tablet, and since then, I have been doing digital art, learning everything from skratch.

    Currently, im studying to become a comic book artist, but I still got a long way to go, so every bit of advice or criticism is most welcome in my never-ending quest to improve my artworks!

    Old Sketchbook: http://conceptart.org/forums/showthr...-(NSFW-nudity)

    Some movie stills and sketches (sorry if the sizes are big, im not sure on how to operate a sketchbook yet )

    great short story
    about sketches: imo, you should base them on shadows/lights and no lines, especially when you draw something from observation

    keep it up

    your comic pages were very funny and well drawn.

    I like your most recent studies, show significant improvement

    the far right womans emphasis on her love handles with those sculpted abs is a little odd, that and the sports bra are the only thing that suggests that she is a female? Very muscular.

    Do work! Sketchbook

    Thanks! Thats really awesome to hear!

    I just got back from my mothers house after celebrating Christmas and New Years Eve there. It was nice to be back in nature again!

    I brought my tablet there, but I couldn't really paint anything advanced on her tiny laptop (not that good yet ._.). Did do a lot of studies though, and TONS of sketches, gonna scan some tomorrow.

    Anyway. Here are some anatomy studies and a random still life:

    Hmm, weird ... Just updated this thread, and the post still isn't visible ... Glitch? Or does it just take a long time for the mods to authorize it?

    Now smaller sizes! Some anatomy studies, cloud study and concept art for a comic book character. Had to draw and color the comic book guy in a way thats fast to draw and color due to tight deadline with the comic itself.

    Not if you count completely worthless pencil anime drawings I did when i was like 17-18, with no regard what so ever to anatomy or anything as serious, hehe

    Actually started drawing again in September 2010 because I got a lot of free-time, just simply decided to spend it wisely, and well, guess I have!

    Thanks for the compliment btw!
