Hello and welcome to my sketchbook. I am not sure if a should post here since my style is not like the rest of the sketchbooks I have seen here.but why not, the reason to post here is for improvement.
I draw a lot of character design and illustrations and also comics. (that's what help me the most to improve.) so expect a mix of that.
Please do not comment about how the female character I draw look masculine, I know that I am doing it, because I like drawing them like that. But you advice on other stuff since my style does exaggerate in some place that I should not exaggerate. thought you should expect really tall people from me.
Also I am French so please excuse my gibberish sometimes.
Of course you should post, every style is welcome here for sure And yours is really interesting, though. I can see the influences of manga too. I haven't noticed muscularity of women since there are no females yet but what I see is that you have a big tendency to draw really small head and torso and the lower the bigger. It's not even about the height of the characters, but general disproportions. This can mess with a perception of the depth - for example in the second picture it rather looks like the guy is reeeeeaaally long and his head is pushed to te back so that the legs are in the first plan but the reast with a head is beside those small trees at the back. So I think at first you should do anatomy studies and then, once you mastered it, exaggerate as much as you want Check this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OyWHmxFGVK4 It's great for start

Igson: I see, well I have studied anatomy before it just I am trying to balance my exagerations. Also I don't know if you look correctly but most of the character in those images are female, they are just really, really butch. I am not sure about the second image, the legs are in the foreground because she is walking on something to goes down. But thanks for taking your time commenting.
here are some stuff I did. I wanted to practice drawing water and blood in my own style. Also I wanted to practice on expression. That about it. Thought If you guys and gals got any interesting idea about how to draw water I will listen.
I notice that working on a webcomic usually make faster progress on your drawing skill than just doing illustration but that me. I don't know if you people want the see comic pages that I work on last week but tell if you don't want that.
