    Masayasu's Sketch Book - IMPROVING!!!

    I have been just looking for awhile now, and have decided to finally post some of my work, eventhough it doesn't compare to most of the members who post here.

    I know that most of you dicourage manga/anime, and eventhough I have moved way from it at times, for some reason I keep going back to it. I guess I like it that much.

    Well, here it goes:

    Most of these were done completely in pen, w/out pencil work (I'm sure it shows).

    Please let me know what you think, and what you think I should work on.

    Thank you,

    Welcome to CA!

    Can't really comment or critique, don't like anime/manga and don't practice it, but I can say that cropping your sketches and smaller sizes (800x600 max) would be a great alteration to your sketchbook. Usually people don't post on anime stuff.

    A lot of these sketches look kind of flat and lifeless, but the foreshortened girl with the thumbs up is done quite well.

    Those two faces your drew is, in my opinion, your best piece. I'd say try going with that kind of detail and realism and combine it with the anime/manga style you have now!

I like your use of the manga/anime style mixed with the realistic in the piece with the womans head... good stuff.... as for people not liking the manga/anime style I say do what you love.... some of my best friends are manga/anime artist... I myself think it's a great style of art.... I don't do it , but I like it

    Lovin' this one... I'd like to see more of these from you. I like/watch anime, but I'm not too fond of the art. But, if that's what you like, go for it. keep it up

    This one kind-of off topic. My attempt at still life, in pastels.

    I did this one in fireworks and photoshop. I am not sure if it came out as well as I would have liked. It is a smaller version of the giant above.

    yoroshiku!

    hey dude, you have a very nice line quality to your work. also, post new stuff if youre drawing it (and if not, draw it and post it ). most of those are '04 and older, ne? i like your stuff and you seem very comfortable in your style. now challenge yourself a little. dont just have your characters stand there looking kawaii...have them interact with other in some meaningful way. put more than one on a page. draw a scene. have them fight. or go shopping. or whatever. gambatte, ne. peace.

    ps. doko kara kita? ima doko ni iru?

    hey man, i think its cool what you're doing. some of the sketches are better than others though. most of them are very well proportioned but a couple of em have their little issues. for instance, the first drawing from yesterday's post where the girl is walking toward us, i can tell what you were going for in really playing with the approach of the girl, but the drawing got skewed and fairly elongated and the feet are far too big to create a believable figure. but thats all stuff that can be fixed and i'm sure will be fixed as you keep working on it. cool stuff, keep posting.

    Thank you for all of your advice and compliments so far. I am serious about wanting to be a better artist, and all of your feedback is greatly appreciated. I am trying to work on the realistic stuff, but while doing that, here is some more not so real stuff. Though, in response to Purb36, here is a random fighter in motion. I will definately try to diversify, including characters in motion, and art in general.

    Here is a couple:

    ^_^ I thought I'd return the favor and check out your sketchbook.

    Though your style is different from mine, I have a few suggustions for improvement. Definatly try to do more dynamic poses and angles. It's hard, I know, especially when you're working out the design of a character, but do try. It not only looks more attractive, it also will bring people to comment on what they would otherwise see as mediocrity.

    Also, it's fantastic the level that you go into with the pictures, but you have a lot of blank space. A lot. So, add appeal to the picture and crop it in a bit, please.

    Anyway, keep working on it! It's good to see another anime artist with a unique style.

    -Sara

    Hi Sara-San,

    Thanks for the advice. I will crop the pictures down a bit, and resubmit them. I am trying to be better at poses. I am working on anatomy at the same time, and sometimes the pose doesn't look right. Belonging to this forum is a great help though. I have been learning alot from looking at other peoples work and reading comments and suggestions. I appreciate your post, and will continue to watch yours as well in the future.

    Thanks again.

    (I will try to post some more today. Will see how it goes.)
