Welcome. This is your first time postin huh? I like you rendering. It seems that you have a grasp on what anatomy is. thats good if your a character designer that is the most important thing to know. I myself spent a long time adding alot of motion to my drawings, doing the best i could to bring out the dynamism. I would recommend that you do the same. I usually use a very curvy line of action. this will move your drawings away from static poses. well....how old are you? your on the right path. good luck. talk to you later
Hey thanks for the welcome Magnetic, and thanks for the good advice. The static poses has been a huge problem of mine. And to answer your question about my age well we're the same age man well roughly you're about a few months older than me i'll turn 24 on June 13th. Thanks for the crit man i really appreciate it. I looked at your work and it is freakin awesome, I'll look at it closer here in a few mintues and give you a comprehensive post.
wow I really like the loose gesture feel towards the top of this page, and also the longer studies towards the bottom. The reflections on the emperor guards helmut is amazing. From your drawings I really see you understand anatomy, please post more work.
What up. Im back. ya man im usin maya. i havent ever posted any of my models up here. but im lookin forward to see some of yours. thats great that you posted more drawings. ive been noticing some things with your hands. those are probably the hardest thing to draw but i would suggest you practice practice practice on those. hands are never easy. unless you know them like the back of your own. it as also good to know the relationship between the hand and the wrist. well im off! I have learned from my own studies that once you know the basic formulas of the body anatomically, you can do what ever you want with them..as long as you remain in that formula. talk to you later.
im going to asume ur male cause im seeing a bit of heavy handed nesss in ur work. Go lightly gently where features are gentle like eyes u can go heavy ie a sword. get that thick and thin line look cause ur gentle building up the illustation. pretend ur holding a baby u dont want to drop it.
may sound gay but if not maybe a future in scuplture were ur usin a hammer. lol.
maybe draw with a 2h or 4h dont stay there but might help u see values.
u want the whole range working for u not the dark half.
-Magnet- You are absolutely right about the hands I need to draw lots and lots of hands and feet. I have drawings of hands and feet but nearly not enough thanks for the advice. I actually started working on a hand after reading your suggestions.
Darrell Bowman- You are absolutely correct I am male. And on top of that i am heavy handed. You're right I could use quite a few more values. And out of the pencils i do own none of them are light at all. Thanks for the crit It's really appreciated. I adhere to your advice and go for some lighter pencils and ligher values.
Thanks fellas I really appreciate you guys taking the time to crit my work. This is really helping me out thanks alot.
Taking a little tour in your sb
Good start dude, nice pencil work.
I see you got some skilled dudes giving you crits, but if you want one more (not including myself as one of the skilled ), just let me know.
that perfect !!!
now go back over them or one and take a darker pencil let say hb
or higher if that is a hb u used ...and put ur darks in but dont touch
any area that not a dark.
now after that only pencil lightly in "dark areas" dont pencil in light areas.
maybe a line defining a light area. from now on all ur efforts are for establishing dark or dark grey areas keep ur white clean of crosshatching.
So it darks were after in a drawing. or darkesh. and only a few lines to establish lights.

Here are some new anatomy studies I have recently cranked out. I'm really trying to get a better feel for the anatomy so I hope you guys like my progress. I didn't use references for any of these minus the torso study below. I'm really try to train my mind to remember where what goes and there relationships toward one another.
these were some random sketches
I did this a while ago, its a torso study, this one is actually from a reference
You definately improved. I have the same advice as Darrel Bowman. Try to achieve more defined highlights/shadows and the figure will look more interesting. I think these last anatomy studies have it so you're on a good way. Keep it up.
Values are light to dark
on a scale from one to ten.
you only have the first five which means light to middle grey.
now u need middle grey to black.
so do with a hb penil a box and do these greys a few times.
press lightly for a light grey press maybe harder for a black.
when u look at a drawin or a black and white photo see if u can
name the greys in it. after a while it second nature.
look at a yellow as a light grey and a tree as a dark grey.
sunshine or light source light greys and no sun darks.
Nice scribblings, mister! My advice would be that you work some more on your faces, their muscle/bone structure, etc. From time to time they seem to be a bit off. But your overal anatomy skill is impressive so far. Keep on going!
ann::: Thanks alot i really appreciate your comments
jack frost::: to be honest i tried to make it some sort of traditional medallion of some sort but i failed as you mentioned, but you're right they look more like goggles than any decorative symbol.
Darrell::: Whats going on man, thanks for the support it is really appreciated. You are absolutely correct about my rendering. i actually went out and bought a couple of new pencils so I could do some box studies like you mentioned thanks.
Codaromek::: Thanks man i'm glad you like my work! great inspiration.
~Faust~:: Yeah i just have the feeling i need to work on alot of stuff and face bone studies are one of them. I'll post some anatomy stuff here in a little bit.
Here's something i worked on today, I spent a lot of my time shading this drawing. The funny thing about it is I used a pen, which is something i am not used to at all. I used pressure to create the different values tell me what you guys think. The nose is a little out of place and the eyes are a bit buggy, but he's a goblin, and they aren't usually known for there symmetrical good looks.
Goblin Elder (pen ink)
I did this one soon after the first one
