    Criticism is like oxygen to me, I need it.

    Hey there!

    My name is Kári Eyvindur and I am currently 15 years old, live in Iceland ,although, I am not a viking....yet.

    I will post some of my old sketches but it would be preferable to post current status of my skill at drawing.
    Might do some digital, might not, it will be mostly traditional but like every other artist I will end up using digital, but for now traditional . I'd like to explore many aspects of drawing, for example: Mech, Thumbnails, Figure Drawing, Color, Light and Value and much more aspects that are waiting for me to execute them and use them in future drawing sessions!

    Much better and recent stuff is further down and on the second page!

    Your work is looking very good so far! With your anatomical studies, don't forget the learn about the skeletal structure (if you haven't already), as it's just as important. Some of your figures look a little bit stiff at times, for which I would suggest learning gesture drawing, which will help you loosen up and convey more energy in your poses. In the last post one of your figure's head was too far off to the left. You should try flipping your images with a mirror or whatever - It sort of refreshes your mind and helps you see mistakes more clearly.

    I like where you're going and I hope you keep it up. I hope this helps!

    Hey dude!

    Fifteen... I started drawing at that age too, and well...you're doing it better than me back then! Great job so far, just practice like crazy, and by the time you turn 18, you can even start working freelance!

    Keep it up, update regularly! I'll be watching your sketchbook!

    Thought I'd add the pyramids for a fun composition . The character took me about 1 hour. The environment is completely random and done in just a matter of minutes. I really have to start doing some anatomy studies, especially faces.

    Hey, thanks for stopping by my SB!

    Already seeing some progress here, and cool characters

    As for a crit, from the study in post #2 it looks like you have a wooden mannequin. Notice that you shouldn't use the shoulders of the mannequin as a reference for how real shoulders look. Most of your characters have wide torsos and arms that are too independent of the torso. A crude comparison here:
    Name:  shoulders.jpg
Views: 673
Size:  45.8 KB
    Arms should be connected to the torso by the shoulder, chest and trapezius muscles, which together form something like a muscle poncho (or cape as Loomis calls it). Check out "Figure drawing for all it's worth" by Andrews Loomis, it'll help with loads of things! http://www.alexhays.com/loomis/Loomi...ure%20Draw.pdf

    hey there, nice start on your SB! i saw you asking for a little advice on poses and i just watched this nice video about just that so thought i throw in the link here http://www.youtube.com/user/Sycra/vi...dv=b1nxf5KQ2Js
    also really worth it to look through some of his other videos

    also doing some short lifedrawings/gestures is a great practice to get down some nice poses. if you cant find a place in your town to go to lifedrawing there is some handy sites on the interwebs for that; http://www.quickposes.com/pages/gesture and http://artists.pixelovely.com/practi...igure-drawing/ or alternatively like i do alot, saving a helluva lot of stockphotos in a folder and put them in a slideshow from 30sec to 5-10min

    doing a bunch of anatomy studies and then try to draw them from memory is good practice too!

    looking good mate. I don't have any advice better than what has already been said. And it looks like you are taking it to heart with those studies. Just keep at it, because it looks like you have a good eye. Keep posting!

    What they said ^

    I recommend, before even doing figure studies, to just practice drawing proportionately-correct people in a simple standing pose. Once you get really used to this, then study some basic anatomy like the placement of the rib cage in relation to the pelvis, etc. I see you were already starting to do this with your skeleton study.

    Also, I think the reason some of your drawings had flawed proportions is because you didn't give yourself enough room on the page. Try buying larger sketchbooks so you can be loose with your lines and maintain proper proportions without running off the page.

    Keep going and you will make lots of progress!

    An update!, I just finished making this and I'm actually very proud of it . Haven't digital painted in such a long time and drawing muscles is one of my flaws . I have a lot of traditional stuff also, but I can't find my power cable for my camera . I will upload them as soon as I find it!

    Hey Woolkid! Keep it up, it is great to see all of your practices on the figure. I wish I was that dedicated early on. I think, because you ask for advice and critique, I have a couple of suggestions. Pay attention to your lines, in a lot of your sketches they could be proved upon by better line design. Choose when to make them thick or thin, or even none existen. Make lines that are interesting and that work together and create rhythm through out the whole piece. Anyways, keep it up my friend.

    Check out my blog! - www.kevynhale.blogspot.com - come and follow the.... prodigy (at least the future prodigy)
    And don't forget the sketchbook! http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=270992

    Give me your best critique!!

    JonoKoi Thanks for taking your time doing that, man It worked

    KevyNah Yeah I wish I could do that, but it's so hard . If I'd like any style of my sketches it would probably like Mike Azevedo, his style is so sick

    Some more studies, the arms are done very quickly, about 4 minutes all of them. But I'm improving my lines and that is good

    Your loomis studies are looking pretty solid. Try applying the knowledge you've gained to some figures from imagination soon to really ingrain that stuff into your brain
    Keep it up

    great that you still do a lot of traditional study pencil/paper
    i would suggest stick with it a little longer for your loomis studies
    it's easier on paper than with a tablet, yo ull draw faster
    also dont forget movement and gesture
    do some studies on www.posemaniacs.com or http://quickposes.com/
    your sense for proportion is great
    you are a lot better than everyone i know at your age, if you dont stop drawing you ll get far
    also maybe try to experiment a bit more with painting
    and learn perspective, your perspective is bad atm
    keep drawing those basic circles, cubes, cylinders, etc and after a while you ll start to notice things easier
    try to look at a head the same way
    anyway easier said than done, i also make mistakes with it ^^
    goodluck and have fun

    I was just doing some lineart when I wanted to do values because I have never tried it, so..so...so much to learn.
    The Sherlock one came out extremely bad because I gave up halfway .

    Anyways, haven't posted in a while so I just figure why not. About to do a portrait study now.

    Awesome portraits!
    The hair on the digital one could use some dark values to separate it from the rest of the head but seems fine otherwise
