    Never underestimate the benefits of drawing simple geometric shapes.It would really help you out with your still-life, and I don't know about everyone else, but I've found that over time you slowly find the connection between these simple shapes [cubes, cones, cylinders] and organic masses [faces, figures, ect].

    I love that wierd cable armed guy and the hallway [it almost looks like some sort of underground military bunker-type deal]

    I agree about the simple shapes, definitely work more on your proportions and don't forget to push your values man, deeper darks and more highlights!

    Keep working on your anatomy and structures, maybe even leave out rendering for a while. My best suggestion, draw from life and from sketches of the great artists on this forum, observational studies will help in improve like crazy.

    Keep it up and welcome to CA!

    Hiya. I don't think he means that at all. Even though you used a 3b pencil, you aren't modeling the form in a way that carves the shape out of the paper and makes depth. There still isn't enough of a value range. In particular, it's the darks, and it' not a matter of adjusting the 'levels.' In particular, the darkest areas are the outlines you drew, and that makes it more of a contour drawing with some light shading. Really though, I wouldn't worry much about that aspect of it at the moment. Instead I would focus on the draftsmanship and leave the rendering for value studies. Of course, you can throw it all in, but it's much easier to learn one thing at a time.

    Also, I see a lot of stylized ppl thus far, but I don't think there's enough traditional anatomical know-how yet behind you to make the stylized stuff 'ring true.' It's always a long process, but it's a really enjoyable one, so I'd throw yourself into realistic studies and anatomical drawings to build on the foundational elements. It pays off, fast. Don't take this as an overly harsh crit, it's just the way it works when it comes to stylistic stuff.

    Congrats on the new sketchbook. I'm looking forward to watching the thread grow!!

    -Craig

    I agree with what's been said, but I wanted to add that that was a pretty cute animation.
