obi-one sketchbook - last update 17 sept 07
first post on ConceptArt
I've never been to any art class, I'm just drawing for myself, because I do enjoy it a lot.
I don't use any refs for my drawing, I'm just trying to learn by watching other's drawing.
the next two are inspired by a manga called : Saint seya - knights of the zodiac
I would like to have comments and critics on how I can improve.

Nice start on your sketchbook here.
The last to is looking very nice, good line work and a solid anatomy.
Some of the others have slight problems with that, too long arms, too short leg and stuff - but it seems to be easy fixed. The shading is nice on the helmetdude on the first drawing - keep that up
Anyhow, keep working and good luck. (btw using others drawing is ref to )

thanks for the comments
Fellah. > I think one of my major problem are the legs. I use to draw them to short. I have to work on that. I don't see it when I'm drawing , but once scanned on my computer, it's what I see the first.
hypocalvin > I know for the feminine pose, it's not great, but I like the overall proportions on this one.
I'll try to scan some more of my work and post them soon.

This one is a bit older than the previous. I found it more difficult to draw girls, so I don't do it very often.
here's an ather one
and I try to learn how to color some of my sketchs, so here's the result :
hope you like
crits and comments are always welcome.

wolverine is looking good - and yeah the legs are a bit short, not much tho.
I like the beast drawing (last one) a lot dude! Nice concept, nice beast design and nice detail on the man. I can see you got the talent, but maybe you need to slow down a bit and look at your stuff before you start inking and coloring - the inking is very good on the last one, nice and controlled line work, looks good. Take a look at the man: his arm is almost longer than his leg, his right hand is very small and his head is way too big. the pose he has would break his back - or at least hurt like hell The beast is missing two legs btw, even tho they are behind the first one you should still let them show a bit, this way it all looks a bit flat.
All that being said - it is a nice drawing and i think with some work all this will be fixed. Check out mentlers thread - hes a 1,2,3 - 1,2,3 system on anatomy somewhere that is really helpfull! And my advice would be, scan the stuff in and kill the flaws before finishing it. I scan, redraw, scan, redraw, etc.
Wow, long comment hope you dont mind. Woudnt use my time here if i thought you didnt have the skill, so i hope i didnt piss you off

You're getting good keep going.
On the one with the girl holding the wine glass: The elipses would not follow the vanishing point lines unless the glass was a flat cut-out.
There's always one more perspective line no matter which direction you look. It's the one that goes from your eye straight back to a vanishing point. It would be impossible to see or draw as anything other than a vertical line down the center of any object, but it is there and it's what makes 3 dimensional things bulge out towards the viewer.

fellah > thanks for the critics. I'll go and watch mentlers thread. I think your right, I don't take enought time to watch and redraw if there something wrong in my drawings. I'll be more patient.
I know my beast have only two legs, I wont change it on this one, but next time I wont do this mistake.
Gilead > I didn't think about that when I draw it, but now I see you're right. great crit. thanks a lot.
more to come soon

Yeah cool stuff, I'd agree your proportions are off and to do some reading on that. Lots of your guys really have a wicked sense of movement and dynamicism though, and that's something that's hard to practice...keep it up and you will rock hard....good work...
