    Sketchbook - Not gonna lie, im a lil' bit nervous...

    I want to get a better grip on concepts like anatomy, perspective and shading.
    I really appreciate criticisms and feedback. So dont hold back at all. Thanks.

    Anyways here's a small background on me im 17 and I've been drawing every since I could hold a pencil, I'm trying to stave off stagnation and grow my skills. My biggest problem currently, I think is color and some forms of proportion and perspective as well as messy lines. So thats the short of it, now i'll get back to scribbling.

    nice head sketches, for anatomy an advice that i can give you is drawing from reference a lot, do tons of shoulders, legs (muscle, bones, etc)and you will find an improvement.

    Your poses are looking a lot better! keep doing the Quickposes exercises they'll help you grasp proportions, then specific studies of the anatomy of the limbs will help you when working from imagination. To get better at drawing heads I'd suggest studying the planes (maybe take a look at Loomis's books)

    This is some good stuff, and your latest drawings show improvement. Keep practicing, man!

    If you still need the how-to on how to scale pics down, I use MS Paint to crop and resize my pics.

    And the eyes: Manga and comic book eye tuts could help a lot.
