    Skadoo's sketchbook of improvement

    So I'm going to try out sketchbook to see if I can get some help when it comes to art. I may post some incredible stuff or not. Who knows. Please be serious in your critiques.

    Calarts

    So I'm trying out for Calarts and they require a sketchbook. Here is what I have so far. I'll try to hook up my scanner but for now you will get crappy phone pics.

    Skadoo, nice work so far. Take more time to get the proportions right; I can personally spend about 50% of my time on proportions alone. The feet in the last post are very well done.

    A page from my Calarts sketchbook.
    Left is character doodles and the right is mostly wolf sketches from my head except for one which was partially referenced.

    Personally, I like the stuff you do on paper more than the digital. Hands and feet look great. I found that I had a better grasp of figuring out values and hues on paper, with markers or colored pencils than digitally. eventually I abandoned colors and digital work altogether and really focused on illustration (my strong suit). I think its yours too

    @ CromFace: I'll try to keep that in mind. I do work a lot in pencil but you guys don't really get to see that stuff because its such a pain for me to upload it on here. The digital is much easier and quicker. I'll try to get more of my traditional work on here in the future.
