    From nothingness to improvement

    Hello to all of the artistic souls here! Let me first introduce myself. I'm Lyubomir-a junior multimedia designer, currently residing in Denmark(originally from Bulgaria). I've known this forum for quite a long time but this is the time when I am getting truly active and beginning my quest in concept art. I'm interested in character and environmental design and with your help, I will give my best to master them. Your critique, suggestions, corrections etc. will be highly appreciated!

    I started out with baisc anatomy.
    Note: Sorry for the bad quality.
    Note2: Please jump into the last page for the latest stuff of mine.

    Here comes a small update on anatomy(again). I'll have to disappoint you that it's not done on a digital medium. It's mainly focused on ears and their placement, a little of lips and basic skeletal study. Tomorrow after work I will finish up and upload an update of ears seen from different angles.
    Coming up: Muscles of the human body, the head in planes and basic gestures.
    Hopefully next week I will have two brand new books delivered:
    1) It's based on perspective & landscapes.
    2) It's about fantasy characters and ways/tips to draw them.
    I think it's useless to mention that your critique is very much needed and will be appreciated. This is what would give me even more motivation to improve myself. See you around, concept people!

    So I am back again . This time I am working on a value study represented buy a sketch of a helmet. As a matter of fact it's so fun to play around with it that I consider refining it. Apart from that, I've been doing traditional anatomy studies, which I will post later cause I want them to pile up a little. So this is the first draft of my today's exercise and lets see how it will end up at the end of the day.
    PS: My books arrived! It's time for hardcore drawing!!

    It's nice to see you are taking steps to improving and finessing your artistic abilities. One thing I might suggest is to work on gestures since it is the backbone to every figure you draw. What I suggest you do is to carefully read the first chapter of Michael Hampton's Book "Figure Drawing Design & Invention" then get yourself setup on a routine of doing gestures every day, preferably an hour a day. Get yourself to setup using this site and start doing gestures not ranging more than a minute.

    For anatomy, have a look at Loomis and Hogarth (haters be damned). If you go on amazon you can check out a ton of pages and plates in the preview bit.

    Thanks for the suggestion but I've got it + some more(in digital format). I brought myself a very good anatomy(hardcover)book, which covers a great deal of info+nice & well explained imagery.

    Good start, but keep pushing !

    Remember to always judge your work and ask yourself what is working and what is not.

    Best,
