I was hoping for some critique on some of my artwork, sketches, and the like. I'd appreciate any comments. below is the link to my sketchbook I just uploaded. I'm new to this site so sorry in advance if the link doesn't work.
Way, way too much blend/smear. That's a terrible Photoshop habit. You're best off taking arenhaus' advice and going pencil-and-paper, but if you insist on staying digital, don't use the soft blending tools *at all* for a while, until you get the hang of shading the slow way.
I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).
I don't want to be a prude, but are these kind of posts okay (admins)? I mean... I know it's doggy porn, but still, I had some questions to answer when my wife was looking over my shoulder just now!
I'm not judging - you're into what you're into and that's all grand, but this is a forum to improve your skills as an artist - maybe you could just show some drawings which don't show titty f$%king but just, you know - simple character standing there kinda stuff. I mean it's one thing to draw nudes, quite another to have full on graphic sexual acts!!!
Anyhow hoping I'm not being trolled here so, to answer your question (as I recently had an issue with anatomy myself and was like you - what's wrong? hmmmm can't see it!). Sometimes YOU just can't see it. But when other people are telling you that you have a problem with your anatomy (and they're good artists with work you respect), it means you definitely DO have a problem with your anatomy, and sometimes that problem is so broad, it would take too long to be specific. In your case your problems are quite broad and also you have a lot of images so it'll be hard to point out which one in particular. The penises look strong btw... (strong being the right term)
SO... the only thing you can do is go back to study. Are you drawing from reference? If so, just get the photo you're referring to, stick it over the top as a layer on 50% transparency, and you'll soon see what's wrong. If you're NOT drawing from reference, that could be the start of your problems.
I wasn't a trained artist - i.e. I didn't go to illustrator school - I basically stopped drawing after art A-Level (18 years ago). So in some respects I'm missing exactly the same sort of thing you're missing: formal study. You just gotta go to your books and start learning what's right and what's wrong.
Anyhow it was an amusing post even if it did raise some eyebrows from the missus!
Oh and if you want to watch me paint live I recently got introduced to this thing called picarto TV... It's nice to do art and share it - if you have any questions it's great to talk too! I'm painting pretty much 12 hours a day so you'll most likely find me - unless I'm eating
