I am trying to get better at drawing and painting, but particularly need to get a stronger understanding of anatomy. I struggle with digital painting and really want to get better at it.
If you have any spare time I greatly appreciate all critiques.
Thank you for stopping by

A few pages from my vis com sketch book, attempting to come up with some characters
I'm creating a comic book and the theme is Artificial intelligence, where the AI becomes a superhero

Thanks for the warm welcome T-Eight. Just a quick wizard concept
First picture is looking good, be confident when putting your lines down. (dont need to keep going over them)
Good stuff- keep posting!
I have embarked upon the ambitious project of doing a portrait of everyone friend that is currently on my Facebook's friend list. Follow the progress as i update daily. my Facebook page
I like your dedication to posting every day, and you have some really nice character designs there. My only reccomendation would be that all your sketches (even your most recent project) are very portrait-focused. Your portraits are great, but I'd like to see you challenge yourself with more full-body stuff, maybe doing multiple figures. Just because you seem pretty comfortable with doing portraits already, I feel like you would get more out of varying your practice.
Best of luck!
sketchbook of wonders:
Thanks Jacqs. You are completely right, i dont really do alot of figure drawing. And showing multiple on a page sounds like a great idea i'll aim to day that tomorrow and get it up for some critique.
A quick little character concept with some hand studies. Jim Lee inspired

The 2nd portrait out of 265
Thanks phoenicorn, hope to be able to continue to update this sketchbook.
Here is a skull study, using graphite
This is the third portrait in my challenge to do a portrait of every single facebook friend. No matter how award it gets whether its someone that I met at a party a year ago or ppl from primary school days, a portrait of them must be done.
Nice challenge you've got there. That kind of concrete goals always help motivate.
In your last portrait I would push light values a bit more and his head looks a little too big.
Keep on nice work!
Thanks Latus, thanks for the advise, i'll keep it in mind for the next 265.
Some concept sketches i did after watching Ironman for the first time

Nice work man! I have a suggestion for your facebook portrait project though. Facebook photos dont tend to be the best drawing reference. You want good light and readable form in your ref, so i think you would learn a lot more if you did this same project but with good photos from online somewhere. Check out flickriver and just browse, youre bound to find portrait material worth copying. Keep it up!
Thanks Kielbasa, I agree the a lot of the photos that i have found(on facebook) are a bit flat whether its because of the flash that is used or its at a party, however i have committed to doing this and
hope to see it through even if some of the photos are lacking. Thanks for the suggestion though and hope to see you back.
Today i have a few studies of William Bouguereau's portrait of Gabrielle Cot. Which i cannot hope to match, and just a few studies from life
Ok I'm looking for some crits for this portrait i need to have it done pretty soon. Any and all critiques are greatly appreciated.
Well its my Auntie's sister's wedding in a few weeks and i thought that i might do a full painting in photoshop for it. Early wip of the painting, critiques would be awesome, hope to get it pretty detailed depending on the time that i have available

Some things that i did on the Ipad while watching Le Tour de France last night. Unfortunately i don't have the pen so i had to do these with just my finger didnt work out to well
So im up to portrait number 6 out of around 300 portraits which is my entire facebooks friends list. im uploading daily to Facebook. Used a faber castell red pencil for this one
