Hello everyone and thanks for viewing my sketchbook and first time posting my own thread on ConceptArt.org, please feel free to critique my work, because I know I need it. My drawings are from a new sketchbook and its been awhile, so its about time I stay consistent with drawing to increase my skill level. I'm a history nut so some of I get a lot of my inspiration from historical events such as WWII to the Mongol Steppe of Ghengis Khan, etc Right now everything is pencil (mechanical mostly) and paper but am saving up for the intuos 3. Thanks again for viewing and there will be much much more to come.

hey nice work! You're really good - the only crit i have is in the 'hitler youth' and 'Amongst Chaos' the folds in the clothes look a bit random and just dont look quite right. Other then that these pictures are great! Keep drawing and post some more!
I completely agree with you flippinmental, originally I was trying to make the clothing to big for them thinking the german uniforms weren't really made to fit 13-15 year olds, so I got carried away witht the wrinkles in the clothing and went with it. I'll have more concepts like those in the future and I'll be sure to tone it down abit .
ashrumm: thanks for the crits, yeah the eyes are black due to the constant erasing and trying to the pupil right so eventually I got tired and decided to fill them in. Thats the problem I have sometimes when drawing small is getting the eyes the way I want them. some of my friends I've showed them to like the black eyes cause it creates a sort of deviousness within the character
look: Thanks for the crit, and I really enjoy your work, amazing brush work, concepts designs that are really inspiring.
ok here is an update, these are some portrait sketches I did not to long ago again with mechanical pencils, just thought i'd add them for all to see. I hope you enjoy and again thanks everyone for viewing and please fill free to crit my work.

Of course, what the others have already said, I won't repeat. The only other thing is proportion. The hands rock. I really, really, really think you have something going with the Monk, you should play with that one a little bit and see where he takes you! I like the collar on the queen/ the flaps look good. Can't wait to see more!!

Ok I'm back with a little update, I have some back studies sketches. I'm just trying to familiarize myself with all the regions of the body instead of drawing from the front. The sketches themselves are from my head and what I couldn't remember I referenced from my anatomy books. The heads in these studies I didn't really focus on as you can see. Please crit away on anything ,always looking to improve. Will have more side studies in the next batch.
look: Yeah I like that drawing also, I was really inspired by it after reading the history book "Ghengis khan and the mongels" something like that, thanks for stopping by
Cobi: thanks, yeah proportion the mountain I'm trying to climb, I'll get there though, thanks I'm glad you like my hands, I'll do some more of them.
Ashrumm:I sure am up for the challenge, I do like yourself am really trying to get the anatomy right, so I can better express dynamic poses realisitcally. I'll be sure to post some more dynamic poses after I complete more back studies and profile studies.
Hurricane: Thanks for the advice, those are really key questions I really need to ask myself. I believe every artist should ask themselves. I'm really studying my anatomy books really trying to understand shape relation and muscle structure and I'll be sure to post some longer studies of the figure, thanks for stopping by.
Your work is really inspiring.
Thanks everyone for stopping by, more work soon to come.
