Its' free and it takes less than 10 seconds!
I'm completely new here, and decided to post my "works" here in hope that you help me improve my rather low skill level... :-/
Some say that in your way to get a better artist it's important to set yourself some measureable (not sure if i wrote it well) goal to go to... Well my goal is to be as good as for eg.
morano (http://morano.cgsociety.org/gallery/613191/) or omen. I'm not sure if you are familliar with their work but it's enough to say that i have a long long way in front of me...
1.So first of my little goals will be learning myself a human anatomy with Glenn's Vilppu tutorials.
2.At the same time i"m going to do an everyday life drawing's (at least 5)
3.I'm gonna do digital paintings with fruits and that sort of things to learn myself about the color (3 per week at least)
4. I'm going also to da daily practice with gesture drawing from there (http://www.pixelovely.com/gesture/figuredrawing.php).
In future I thought about a tutorials from ImagineFX or something like that, not sure really how to "bite it"....
I'll try to post all of my drawings / paintings in this threat and I would really appreciate your comments what's wrong, what's good , how to improve and etc.
hopefully I will post some more shortly, I'm already curios about your comments... ;-)

Hello, here some of the anatomical and gesture sketches to keep myself going on the right track.... the last one is from imagination and is suppost to keep the lazyness off me...
Hello guys, here is my still nature study... It's actually all I can do with pencil... but i know i can do better.... besides i want to start drawing human from nature, but I can't find any volunteers... so i'm forced to draw people from photo reffrence for now... I would really apreciate any comments how can i improwe at this moment (i know : practice practice practice, but i 'm counting for something more specific...)
from tutorial on cgtalk... maybe there is still hope for me...
pushing forward.... not very spectacular though :-/

some drawings from life
Great start to your sketchbook marowak. I especially like the sketch of the walkway with the trees & benches. Your gestures are so dope.

]Hello, it's been a while since I've posted something... applying to a art school can be time consuming...
anyway, a little concept of a anti-mine tank... ...
p.s. I really need to get on with a tablet... ;-)
Also some concept of a shoe... it from CA 101 assignments (NO#1)... the concept is to take a real life object, draw it , and then change it slightly, so it looks like drawned from life... ;-)

Nice to see a lot of hard work here. Keep drawing from life, bit of a slog sometimes but it will definitely pay off. I'd also recommend checking out a figure drawing book (Loomis and Vilppu are my favorites) so you can get some extra insight into the construction of the figure.
thank's a lot Ian, I've watched Vilppu's video tutorials, and those are indeed great, although i'm gonna have to come back to them instantly... :-/ Loomis is also great..
Good studying! Try focusing a little more on the actual quality of your shading; a lot of it has a scribbly quality that makes your studies look messier than they really are. You can fill large areas quite quickly with the side of a sharp pencil, just put a little more care into laying the tone down. If you want to go for a sort of hatching look instead, just remember to pick up your pencil at the edges to avoid the big loops/zig-zag look.
Some new works.... started to really go into cocnept design now... ;-)
yeah, You're right, I just decided to leave it that way and move on to some new things for now... ;-)
Lots of effort here, keep it up!

Nice, I can see that the practice you do is clearly paying off, I especially like this piece:

Good job, i just went through your whole portfolio, thats a lot of progress! As for your last post, there is improvement but its not quite there yet. I cant quite
Pinpoint what exactly is wrong, ill take a better look when i get home. Also he looks like he has a fake beard . I like he idea of the two daggers in his back
Keep up the good work
thank's a lot !! , I also think that there is something wrong with this guy, I already noticed that the hands are quite off, even I already fixed them before (they were even worse than that..!!!!) Nice to hear that You liked the "daggers on the back idea" , I really tried to get this guy quite functional look, as he might be buildable in real world... I still struggle when it comes to painting though, need to work on that cause for now I feel more comfortable with linework...
And this is what I've been doing since last couple of weeks, offcourse I made a bunch of those studies in different views not only this one ... ;-) And I must say I already find this helpful...
hey marrowhaws. thanks for stopping by my sb! wow, that are extensive anatomy studies you are doing? what are you studying off? posemaniacs? or do you guys have one of those body expos closeby? ^^ those are cool. anyway, great going, even showing the directions of the bones and stuff. keep it up! ^^
thanks a lot ashess, actually my metod of learning this stuff is not that complicated, just take a photo of a pose (best if there are 360 views) and then overlay skeleton and muscles on top.... ;-) after that i watch villpu's vids to make it stick and understand it better...
