Sketch Dump, Need Help
Hello! This is my thiiiird image post on ConceptArt.org now. I am really loving this site as it inspires me daily. Well I decided I would get some C&C from the best and thats why im posting a large load of my images. Most of this is much older, and is more basic. Well give me your best crits, and please keep in mind, I started using photoshop a couple months ago and im merely 13 years of age .
#1: Really old pic, this was done for a small game (not anything special, just with a free engine, wasnt gonna sell). I dont particularly like the coloring. His tail is supposed to be hanging of a cliff.
#2: Mercedes McLaren car. I did this with a picture as a reference. Some of the shading is off and it doesnt look like metal, but I still rather like it.
#3: This is one of the newer ones, done on the first few days of my wacom. It was basicly just practice but I felt like making it a bit bigger. Did this on one layer .
#4: A quick one during school. I felt like doing something religious but the scan messed up all the words.
#5: Quick Wacom practice.
#6: A hand I had to do for art class. I kinda liked it and I dont do much anatomy so I decided to post.
#7: A rather bad drawing and a bit sideways, I just wanted something to practice coloring on.
#8: Once of my really early ones, didnt spend much time on coloring but I liked the drawing.
#9: An all ink drawing that took up a full page. I really liked this one .
#10: Supposed to be a spirit in armor. I liked the drawing and it was my first time coloring it then removing lineart.
#11: A quick one I did for DSG recently.

Very good. my son is 11 and he loves to draw too. I'll tell you the same thing I tell him. Quit drawing what you think it looks like and draw what it really looks like. I know this sounds funny for a concept point of view but if you can get this down, your concepts will look 100x better. Does that make sense?
since you like drawing eyes; try drawing your eye using a mirror. Flush all of the symbolisms of eyes and draw what you see. Concentrate on the shadows and the shapes rather than lines. Try it and post it for us to take a look at it.
hope top hear from you soon.

Mcotie- Thanks man, yah it makes sense and I just got a sketchbook that I can carry around. I usualy draw fantasy stuff randomly but just now started getting interested in anatomy and stuff so im definatly gonna sketch that more.
SamBrown- Thanks for the advice. I havent really gotten good enough to experiment with line values yet but I hope that I can soon.
Anyway, this is one that I DIDNT draw, I repeat I did not draw! I only colored this one. It was drawn by Armel on wc3campaigns and I merely colored it. C&C more then welcome, negative or posotive . I did however draw the tatooes =P.

i agree continue drawing things you see. example: the car with a photo for reference that is good practice (and it looks nice, I cant draw a car that good!) if your that good so young, now imagine how much talented you will be after more of practice...
the coloring on the elf is nice, particularly the armor, you did a very good job for the metal, i think the lighting on the shoulder pads is great. you should do the whole picture with a similar lighting on her clothes and skin, dont be afraid to make the light and shadows really stand out.

Dished- Hey cool, at least I know now that it isnt all older people here. Yah, I just recently started trying to do some anatomy and I will probably post some stuff if I can just find the time to do a good amount of anatomy sketches. Thanks for the links!
Steph- Thanks for the support, yeah I will definatly keep practicing as much as possible. And yah, alot of people tell me that I should make stronger highlights, but the thing is, sometimes I do some highlights and it only seems weird to me and everyone else likes it, so its a bit hard to decide .
Ill try to get more stuff posted if not today, then probably tommorow.

uhm 13 ??? wel i know people who are 20 and they draw more then you and they still suck .. so i recomend keep drawing and by age of 16 you'll be new prodigy kid !
edit : oh yeh when you dont like what you do and other like ... dont listen to them do it better and eventualy so good so you like it ! worse thing is crits or coments from wrong people ... or example : my mam : wel yeh you already can draw verry wel ... but i know and i apreciate that she supports me .. ya know ? but when i hear from someone who is drawing good already that im making progress then that feels much better

Eew- Lol, yah I know exactly what you mean. And I checked out some of your stuff, and you got some pretty cool anatomy studies there, which is what I am going to have to start up real soon.
And I wanted to update with a couple drawings of my hands but its difficult to do right now because my finger is swollen like hell from it getting twisted, so I cant even make a fist and its freakisly large... Anywho, I will get some eye studies in here, but probably not that many because I have 2 other things im working on at the same time.

Alrighty, lets get some anatomy up in here! The hands have a couple problems with the fingers, and im aware of dat, but anything else is fair game for crits so post em up!
Oh, and I just decided to make a lil scene with a fire elemental and I wanted to make his body seem streched. The hands are messed up but I plan on fixing it up.

Okay, decided to update thread with a little picture I forgot to post earlier. Its quite old. This is exact size I worked on, and done in 1 layer... Took me bout 20 minutes. Well, C&C is always appreciated.
September 12th, 2004 #11
Okay another picture I didnt draw ( ) but I colored.
Took me about 10-15 min.
September 13th, 2004 #12
That last one is really nice. I like the way you colored the line work and layed the tone over the whole thing.
September 14th, 2004 #13
I decided to fix the new one up a bit. Took me another while but it was real fun. Guys, please keep the crits coming, I reaaaally need help, as you can tell.
EDIT: Oh man, totaly forgot, the lineart credits go to SaneJack7! Sorry man ,

Okay, I wont do any stupid post about how "no one cares about a noob" and stuff like that, but can someone please help me out with my stuff? Please?

To be honest, I liked the first version better. This isn't a real rendered, finished line drawing, so leaving more of the sketchy lines, going with the colored lines, and choosing the lighter colors on the gloves all seemed to work together better. I think trying to "render" (rather than spot color) what is basically a loose sketch, just ends up looking like overkill and diminishing the freshness of that "sketch" feeling.
