Waltztheplank's Beginner Sketchbook! NEED CRITIQUES
Just posting this to get started, heres something I worked on last night, nothing huge just trying to get a basic grasp on my tablet I got yesterday.
I'm 20, Took the Animation Portfolio Workshop in Toronto, Ontario and I'm hoping to be a concept artist but I have no idea where to start as of right now im trying to get into Animation at Sheridan/Seneca.
Any advice would be great

Quick Elf Sketch i drew, not sure how long it took but I have a hard time matching how fierce profile view looks and forward view looks.
EDIT: Added a frog warrior, I tried to add some structure behind it this time, It kinda helped me build it up a bit better.

A gesture I went over to make somewhat solid, Supposed to be a gnome witch with a top hat but the proportions are totally off for that.
Hope maybe I'll finally get some tips, even though there isnt too much to go off.

Some more Frog Man, This time just some expressions that I doodled out.
(I feel like I'm in a doodling stage. I should be working on more realistic things so my structure gets improved.)
Yep as I said in the WIP section work on anatomy for a while, its difficult to stylize something until you understand it, I mean not just the shapes of everything but bounce and stretch, twist, weight shift, line of action, gesture all of it comes into play and helps sell the action in the image you create. How do you know all this stuff I hear you ask, ha easy I struggle with it too have a laugh at my SB and you will see what I mean.
Look for Andrew Loomis books on Amazon, there are downloadable .Pdfs out there but I dont agree with that, I say let the guys family get some cash from his legacy and buy them.
all the best with the art and I will stop by again later if you like
