    ★Starshaker---Sketches★

    Long-time lurker, finally getting the courage to start posting! Critique is absolutely welcome (and desperately needed) so I'm hoping to get better and better the more I post.

    Not much to show for now, since I need to start working harder.

    also tried to emulate Kinnas' style... it's some drawings from his sketchbook. i'm so embarrassed haha but he's one of my favorite artists!! if emulating is a problem i can definitely take them down.

    Hey man! Great start to your sketchbook! Compliments on that eagle - looks terrific! I like your sketches and your pays with those shadows.I'd say do more studies and keep on drawing random shit like you already do.You know what to do and just try to improve as much as you can.Very interesting stuff.good job

    @CR Faerber- Thank you, more is coming! I've been meaning to get some portraits done! I'm trying to get better at digital painting lately but I'll get on those portraits too.

    This is something I've done that, unfortunately, doesn't show much haha. First painted background ever...

    Ahaaa! I recognised your stuff straight away! You're improving on proportions, and bodies look less flat in the legs which is great!
    (I totally love Kinnas's style too, I feel like I learn so much looking through his sketchbooks.)

    Not a bad start at all, mate. Glad to see you posting again!
    If you're looking for any crits, I'd definitely start looking more at the head planes. When you start thinking of everything in terms of planes it really helps eradicate any flatness in faces.

    Anyways, don't pressure yourtself too much. Keep on Mixing up your studies and leave plenty of time for drawing what you find entertaining.

    @Psychobuddy, Naidy, reborn-gp- Aaaaaa thank you all for your kind words. It means so much! I'll be sure to work on head planes next. Been meaning to work on faces but they're so intimidating..

    Anyways, these are more color studies than anything. I think my form with the birds has improved. The still life was a monochromatic thing but it looks totally washed out and yucky in this photo haha.

    thanks greenhouse. : )

    it's been a while. i've got lots of dumb sketches but nothing really worthy of posting. just chugging along... school is really draining lately.

    some furry oc i guess, messed up the highlights & shadows on the back but at least i can see my mistakes! sketched first on my phone. no ref so i'd like to think i've improved a bit..
