    Hi man.
    Nice and solid start. I like it.
    Your strenght is your line work. Clean and controlled. You got that down pretty good. But you should work more on the anatomy - refs and life and stuff. It opens your eyes for strukture very fast - i learn that myself and was amazed at all the mistakes i did before.
    For anatomy, check out mentlers threads - thats some hot stuff!
    For killer ink and line work check out salarymans thread!
    Welcome and good luck dude!

    Nice work! I gotta agree with fellah, his crits are spot on. My mine crit is torso anatomy. Rip cages and hips. Your first too sketches are a bit too tubular is the torso.
    Great hands, great character translations. I look forward to more!

    I have to back up Badger and Fellah on the anatomy issue, and you do have a nice clean line work. I also suggest working a little on your line weight. Where it varies it looks good, but it's not consistant. . .push it a little further and be more consistant and see what you think, I hope it helps.

    Thanks for the Crits

    Thanks for you crits. I really love getting feedback on my stuff.

    Fellah - I am honored to have you even look at my stuff. I really like your sketchbook. I am kinda surprised you like my linework over my anatomy. I would have thought the opposite. I checked out Mentler's thread and I see what you mean. The guy is amazing. Reminds me of Burne Hogarth and DiVinci.

    Badger - I agree with you. The torsos are definately more tubular. It has been something I am working on. I am working on something right now where I am really trying to thin it up a little more than I usually do. Look below these messages and let me know if this is getting better. I know the girl's expression is a little wierd. I am working on it.
    BTW - You stuff is pretty cool too.

    rick_hershey - I feel my linework is the weakest in my drawings. I am so afraid of getting the sketches too dark. I used to have a tendancy to over ink my stuff and it got a little muddy. I will post one of my older sketches this weekend to show where I had come from a few years ago.

    Keep watching the thread and keep the crits coming. I really appreciate it.

    Here's a new one

    Hey guys,

    Sorry it's been a while. I have been working on and off an animation for a while and my car just broke down. Here is one that I did last week I just added some background elements.

    Let me know what needs work.

    I keep them coming.

    Hi man
    Thanks for the nice words about my stuff I love these sketchbooks - so much good stuff going on!
    Again nice line work and chardesign on the last update. Nice job on the dude holding the girl - the ear closest to the girl is sticking out slightly too much, nice arm - the girls torso and upperleg looks fine, but her lowerleg is very thin maybe? The last dude with guns looks cool too, but the arm leaning on the container is very long compared to the other arm, and since its in the background it should be smaller. See it? The same goes for the frontleg, even tho its bending(bad english) it should be more in front. The hand and wrist on the frontarm are slightly too small too. Sorry for messing up a good inkwork man
    This is smalltime stuff really - nice work mate!

    Forgot to post this one

    Fellah. Wow! I didn't expect such a quick response. I agree about the girls leg. It doesn't really look like there is any weight on that leg. I was too occupied trying to make her look semi-hot and not paying attention to realism. I need to keep it in mind.

    I agree too on the gunman. Foreshortening isn't one of my strong points. I do think the left foot is in the right position to support the weight of the character, but I think it would help to have the knee go out more. No harm on the inks. I wanted to ink more, but I have a hard time doing it on the train. I will certainly work on it and post a new one next week.

    In the mean time here is an old one I did a while back. I wanted to do more of a candid scene. I need to find really good reference materials. Got any ideas?

    The Sketchbook of MetroEast - Updated April 7th

    Here is the guy and the stripper inked in. I wish I saw you crit earlier Fellah. Next time I guess. I think the inks went a little overboard. The guys knees suck.

    The Sketchbook of MetroEast - Updated April 7th

    Thanks a lot Fellah. You have a lot of respect from me dude.

    I love the guy with the stripper, Dave--but I don't think that you went overboard with the inks. Are you going to color it? I supposed that would make a difference on how you inked it.

    I also started to ink a little more of the gunman in the alley. I couldn't rework the arm because it was already inked (Sorry Fellah). Let me know what you think.

    The Sketchbook of MetroEast - Updated April 7th

    I am going to work on another sketch. I scene of a girl in a bar (now there is a surprise) Dressed down and having fun. Like a Rolling Rock commercial. I will post when I have something to show.

    Later

    You got some skills bro. Awwesome linework. Not 100% on the colour job (I hope thats not the burn tool) but love the drunk and the last three sketches. The girls at the start look a tiny bit masculine, I think. Maybe their squarish jaws and thick eyebrows? Anyway you shit on me in terms of dynamic movement any clues on how to improve?

    Yeah. I agree. My color sucks (as sad as it looks, I didn't burn it).I gotta go the same way you did. I got to do more studies. I definately need to work on the ladies. I got to get a swimsuit calendars or something to work off of.

    As for the dynamic movement stuff. I usually do a lot of gestural sketches. You know the old sphere, cube and cyclinder stuff they teach in art101. Looking at a lot of reference helps too. I have been trying to work off of DVDs lately (I haven't posted these here yet). Watch good action movies, like The Transporter, The Replacement Killers, or whatever.

    Thanks for the crits

    Stripper reworked

    Hey guys,

    Here is the Stripper reworked. I took out some of the linework in the guy and a lot out of the girl. The linework on the girl made her more muscluar than I wanted. I also thinned her lips a bit more. I took mostly the line work out of the guys face to make him look a little younger.

    Let me know if I am going in the directionyou guys were suggesting. Thanks for the crits.
