Welcome to my sketchbook, please post some useful critique or your opinion.
My name's Jens De Bel, I live in Belgium.
I'm currently enrolled in Digital Arts and Entertainment and therefore hope to improve my drawing skills by getting some critique on this forum.
Kind regards, Jens De Bel

Didn't get to continue these, would love to finish them.
I see that you like working in Digital. (I need to focus on that myself one of these days) ;P
I'd like to see some of your pencil work if you have any.
You'r work doesnt have depth at all, you need to increase the contrast on the things that are closer to the viewer, make it darker and more saturated, and do the opposite for whats farther away from the viewer, i would study loomis heads n hands book, you need to learn about the plane changes in the face to make for a more succesful piece.
hope it helps.
cool cool cool
The hair isn't that great though :s
it would be so much more awesome if the hair was as good as the face.
i like the direction your headed, i see potential that you will continue to get better. if i were to try to help, id say focus on your work from a distance more, i see you put in nice,small details, but im saying put in larger details to give it more form, so it doesnt look so flat. i hope i have explained my thought clearly and it helps you. keep it up!
Thank you for the input everyone, will take it into account.
These are some pencil drawings
It seems that you're interested in figures and faces. Do photostudies and life drawings from them. When you're sitting in front of the tv, waiting for public transport,...
Also check out Loomis; http://alexhays.com/loomis/ and copy the figures.
Some creative stuff in there, love the bear paint in the snow

Preproduction assignment: Design carriage for fantasy class
Class: earth elementalist
I learned that before going into digital all the way one must first know the basics.
By that i mean, grab the cheapest paper you can find, a pen and start drawing everything you see.
There are very good reference websites around for human anatomy, and other subjects.
Draw daily and ALOT from life, first focus on proportion and confidence in each line you do, then go into value and all the other fun subjects once you are far more confortable with the basics.
But never forget to keep working on the basics!
Theres not more to it than that
Great work, dave!
