    All these drawings are smothered in gratuitous detail on top of a rather formulaic structure. It seems to me that you are imitating the looks of a favorite style of yours, without really trying to understand all the internal works under that style.

    Try to draw something less baroque. Like a nude woman in a calm pose. If my hunch is right and you are imitating the superficial stuff, it will show the real degree to which you are understanding the human and animal form. (And form in space in general). More importantly, it will show you where you have to improve that understanding. It may turn out that all the spikes and skulls and jaggies are getting in your way.

    arenhaus Thx for the comment. So you defined it like "baroque". It made me smile.
    I dont see a purpose of drawing a nude woman in a calm pose. I think its pretty boring. I am graduated at my university with a highest degree at painting and drawing, if you interested in my traditional skills.

    The purpose is to see if you actually understand the human form. It's not to make a finished work of art, it's to test to see how much you actually know. Arenhaus suspects the best way to improve your drawings is not necessarily the detail and design, but to improve the more fundamental thing of the human form.

    Most university art programs suck so graduating from one doesn't necessarily mean you can draw, but if you showed some of your work from that time people here might be able to help better.

    Then why are you on this site sharing your work? This is a place where people try to help each other by pointing their mistakes, if you are unwilling to comply then why join in the first place?

    Agreed with Arenhaus and Lulie. It looks like there's a decent germ of human form in there somewhere (massive legs notwithstanding) but it's all so buried under WoW-style ridiculousness that it's difficult to tell. Might help to put that to one side, for a short while.

    I agree with you Tigersent, there are many things to discuss in concept pieces. But to have a good discussion, this thread is really helpful.

    Then why were you asking for critique in the first place? To waste our time?

    Hello Oleg

    I must agree with some of the others. Both in terms of critique but also your response. Challenging a valid critique with comments about how good you are just makes you sound like a snotty teenager. That will not endear you to anybody here. Remember no one here is obligated to reply to you at all, they do it out of the goodness of their hearts (and many people here graduated 20 years ago and have been working professionally ever since so their opinion on your art is, trust me on this, way more valid than yours or mine). This is a really great site and if you play nice you will get more help than you can imagine.

    Cheers

    D'Arcy

    Expand your range of values. Using darker values for your shadow areas will help reduce some of the visual clutter in the images and make things tighter.
