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.
NEW STUFF Towards the back of the BOok

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 .
Hey, bought that intuos yet? Your concept are cool but what I really like is your anatomy studies. It looks accurate as far as I can see and most of them are very dynamic/lively, especially this one. Altho I wonder if people can bend like this, I know I can't. It's all good tho, looking forward to the rest of the batch. Btw, try drawing a woman or two, I wanna see some booty.
I did actually get that intuoes 3, just starting to use it, I'm getting use to the pen also which will take a little of the time. When I game I use the mouse, so I'm trying to give up the habbit of using the mouse when surfing the net and stuff so I can better adjust to the pen altogether. Also the pen is better on the wrist so thats also another bonus. Yeah I have to thank Mentler's work, and Bridgeman's complete guide to helping my understanding fo the human figure, although I have a ways to go.
Here are some more anatomy studies, a few are these are for you boogieman.
The Anatomy Academy <> love to see artist dig into the form the way you are <> watch out for to much roundness <> variety and opposition of line <> in other words when a muscle is compressed and round on one side it will usually be the opposite on the other <> so you will have opposing round and straight lines <> function creating form
Mentler :Thanks for stopping in and giving me some very helpful feedback. I'll be sure to work at take your input into consideration when working on form. There will be more to come soon thats for sure. Thanks again
Here are some drawings of ears and hands I did a little bit ago. One of my instructors for a class that I took last semester showed us a really awesome way to draw ears from memory with a few steps. Very helpful. I took some pictures of some bridgeman hand and knee sketches I worked on, but they came out to dark so I will retake them and post them later on today.
Thanks for stopping by my SB.
I agree with darkchild - great progress, the difference between the works at the begininng and the end is huge. Your involvement in your drawings really comes through.
Ive been going through ur SB and you r really working hard! Your anatomy studies from your imagination are really cool, the only thing I would say is that some of them seem to b too rigid, and sometimes the hatching makes them look like too hairy. Rest is great, like your hand studies.
Is just my impression. I am not a pro, but hope it helps.
jtheanswer: Yeah your right, my early anatomy hatching does look like hair, lol, I'm still working on my line quality trying to figure out what works and what doesn't. The main thing is to really try to experiment, its hard to do sometimes when your doing something that you think works, but when I look at artist work on this site I'm blown away and feel I must try something new to see if it works for me you know. I would also agree that I have a stiffness to my anatomy drawings also, In my next batch I will see if I can keep loose, and we'll see what happens, thanks for viewing.
Here are some works from a class I took in the fall, it was a crash course to figure drawing, heads and hands and clothed figure because we only spent 4 weeks on each area. Before this course my last figure drawing course was 3 years ago and looking back now my drawings were horrible, lol. In the short amount of time I felt everyone in the class really improved. Some days were good others not so good. I'd have to say the drawings below are the better drawings from the course. although I'm happy with my overall progess, I know I have a ways to go. Thanks for veiwing everyone and feel free to crit.
I believe all the hands to be 10 and 20 min drawings, a few of the heads were 20mins where the longest were 40mins

hmm cool work.. what year are you at aau? classes/teachers for next semester? just curious.. not much to say other than keep working at it, you're doing good so far, just dont get a false sense of self-assuredness and get lazy...
Back at ya... I like your studies a lot! you have a bit.. fuzzy lines.. It's a problem I'm constantly fighting myself.. But other than that, you describe form very well! Keep 'em coming! You're doing great!
main loop: thanks for stopping in, I sent a pm to you explaining all my aau stuff, hope I'll see you around this semester at the workshops.
mentler:yeah, hands are tough, I'll be posting a lot more of them, thats for sure, I just don't feel comfortable drawing them from memory, but I guess i'm always going to need to practice.
dCept: yeah its a contant battle I always say, trying to fight and implement new ways of doing things and techniques you know. I just have to keep on growing.
Thanks everyone for posting and Criting, always enjoy the feedback, you guys and gals are awesome filling my head with infinite inspiration. Thanks again, I'll see you guys in your sketchbooks.
well here are some faces I worked on, portraits I drew from my head of midevil european monks. Now there are problems with them, my main goal was to make sure each monk had his own characteristics, and also to try to get the proportions right (haha, wasn't very successful with this part) from what I felt was right you know. When I draw I'm in the heat of an idea putting lines down and measuring and trying to gage the right porportions and all, but a lot of the times after stepping away from a drawing and coming back to it, makes you want to scream , But here they are anyways

mainloop: whats going on , yeah my internet connection was shitty when I tried to send you that pm awhile back, oh well, I'll send you another pm then. How are your classes going this semester? You have a cool spring break?
Here is another portrait drawing before I throw down washes, its amazing when after looking at it on the screen I knowdence the flaws more so, so I'm able to correct them before dropping the washes down.
