Welcome to CA Great start, I'm glad the drawing has alot of contrast, too many beginners tend to stay in the 'safe' areas of gray shades.
At this point you really shouldn't be focused on developing a style, it will hurt your progress more than anything. What you should really be concerned with are the basics. For instance, what if a man wanted to draw a super complexed and detailed drawing, but couldn't draw a decent circle? Learn figure drawing, anatomy, perspective, shapes etc. A GREAT link you should check out it http://saveloomis.orgI hope I can improve my style this way, so c&c is always welcome

hmmm i cant really give a good critique or comment i think...im sorry.
Maybe you should post more work ? SO we have really something we can talk about.
Anyways. I like how you rendered the cloth. Welcome to CA
thx for the warm welcome guys
Dan1989: Big thx for the comment.
You're right, perhaps style was a little bad chosen.
and here's some anatomy for you
I had problems to stay awake in school...
and in order not to fall asleep...
some stuff I did at home

Welcome to CA!
First quick critique: on the hammer on the first image, the perspective looks wrong to me, as if it's on a different spacial plane compared to the hand and arm. It's really throwing my off, but I think what's doing it is the end of the hammer. Try to adjust where the handle meets the end or rotate the head some.
I'm with Dan1989, Loomis and Bridgman are great guys to study from (Bridgman for the technical side, Loomis for taking the technical and turning it into something interesting!)
Work on that and don't worry about your style, it'll just show up eventually, and if you spend too much time on it now, it is true that it will hold you back from progressing.
Again, welcome, and keep it up!
First of all: thx again for the welcome
and thx for the hint, I'll do something about the hammer
Anatomy is on top of my daily todo-list
messing around with my pen some markers and fineliners
some old stuff for you, while I'm working on anatomy

btw over 180 views... but only 3 people answered... that's weak
perhaps I should start posting images of naked women
Wazzup Fakez, just checkin out yer thread here. There's some cool stuff here. your faces seem a bit flattened but your clothes, like the texture and folds are pretty darn good so far. Keep pluggin man, can't wait to see more!
BTW, that little hellboy head is cool!
first of all thanks feeesh
In the past I had lots of problems with clothes and exspecially the folds.
It took quite a time for me to get it right, I was always searching for a book, that could teach me drawing folds, but I didn't find any, so I had to learn it on my own. I spent lots of time looking at people's clothes in the subway and tried to remember the folds. Searching the internet and browsing my comics helped me, too.
And a big thx for your comment on the Hellboy head
I'm addicted to the comics and to Mignola's style and since I know the comics I spend a lot of time drawing Hellboy heads.
I'm sorry for replying so late, but I hardly find time for drawing, because I have to learn for my final exams.
this one's for you feeesh:
my very first colored Hellboy I think^^
very quick sketch, but I like it
I'll perhaps finish it later
I also tried to do something about my flat heads
Some running dude
the left sketch was too static, so I did another
I didn't have much time to draw in the last time, so i'll start with some older pics
hope you like 'em
I used refs for the poses but everything else (clothes, face, etc.) is from mind
now some new stuff I drew during the holidays
I know his arms look off :angry:
again some heads... but I think I'm getting better
not finished yet, but I like it
so now it's your turn: time to play: "Comment and Criticize"
did this one in school today...
[note]: the eyball in the glass can be used like a camera... just another freaky idea of mine
I like your stuff, it loks so much more full than mine
hey, don't worry, you'll get older, you'll get experience, you'll get better
This forum here's a great place to learn tecniques and other stuff. Just look at what and how the others are drawing and learn from what you've seen.
I wonder how I still find time to draw... :tired:
less writing, more posting... so here we go
looks quite good if you are standing some meters away from your monitor
the usual stuff... heads and unfinished armed guys...
me trying to work with perspective... and it's a car... you can almost recognize it... lol
same with colors... should use them more often...
last but not least
for all those, who wondered, how my avatar looked like in full-size
that's it so far...
perhaps I'm gonna post some photos of my "Facharbeit" (a boardgame) when my teacher doesn't need it anymore and I get it back...
tada, a new hellboy sketch
played around with photoshop... (dunno if you can call this art, but I think they're worth posting)
some sigs for me and my friends (for some browsergames) hope you like 'em
this one's for me
second version in blue
for my friend
for another friend
Any critics? comments?
long time no posting...
well I got lot's of stuff to do... exams (almost done), looking for some place to study and so on...
The time I had for drawing I used to go back to my roots which means drawing fantasy stuff and vikings (I watched "the 13th warrior" that day)
I found an old sketch which I quite liked, so I thought I could work it over a bit
I thing it´s good stuff, but i thing the eyes are sometimes too big
