Aya-kun: Thank you, i appreciate your time and comments it means a lot
VedaSword: Thank you for your comments and taking the time to look I really appreciate it. I do need to loosen up and I see what you mean about the short scratchy marks instead of clean flowing lines. Oh and I promise to post some female alien head designs very soon, especially for you
Time for some more alien head designs both in value and colour, a couple of character designs and some pencil sketches to finish off.
Hey amazing aliens, very interesting looking all of them! Both color and BW ones look great.
About your anatomy studies, hands actually, those seem a bit soft/boneless. Which was/is my problem too and I found exaggerating the bones around joint areas and drawing more "bony" hands (does that make sense, I'm not master of advice haha??) helped me to figure out the anatomy better. Anyway, keep up the good work, your sketchbook looks really good so far!
Aya-kun: Im glad you keep visiting I see what you mean with the teeth, i need a much more subtle approach when laying down lines between the teeth as more light can reach that area than im communicating with a hard line. Thank you so much for putting the time into the edit, creating the gif and the useful links, I appreciate it.
certo: That makes perfect sense. I see what you mean, they look like "play-doh" hands with little underlying structure. I'll try exaggerating the bone structure next time. Thank you for your time and advice, it means a lot.
Artplur: Thank you, I appreciate it
Its time for even more alien heads in both value and colour, a few character designs, pencil sketches and some thumbnails to finish!
yuniken: Thank you, that means a lot. Your sketches are very cool too.
Its been agonising not being able to post anything recently, here goes...
Some fresh value and colour alien heads (including a full body design of one of the alien heads), an alien bust design, a random value illustration piece and a few pages of pencil sketches to finish with.
Thanks for your time
I decided to flesh this guy out from a head design to a full body piece, just to explore him a little more...
and heres the result...

Wow! good alien studies! Neat and great detail. Your style is very refreshing and you know where you are heading Mind if I ask you a question? How long does it take for you to sketch one alien's head? This sketchbook is inspiring. Keep up the good work! I will surely visit this more often
