    The Reborn

    I'm not exactly the worlds greatest sketcher atm, but I'm trying.
    I changed the levels and touched it up for a min in PS.



    I'm hoping that if I keep at it I'll eventuly get it right, I been spending alot of time sketchin lately, I always come on here and say "damn I hope I'm that good one day".

    Anyway, I'm in Sydney and lookin to take a life art course somewhere or other soon.

    Comments plz

    Nice coloring. I think it would look nice if you put some red light from the eyes showing on the face (the portruding parts that logic tells you should be exposed to the light ofcourse). I think it would enhance the face as the focalpoint.

    The right hand looks good in the drawing, the head looks pretty good colored.

    Biggest flaw: the hands and feet, followed by overall proportions.
    You should sketch this out before devoting so much time to it.

    Read this, starting about 1/4 of the way down, Proportions of the Body and practice your proportions on a gridded piece of paper (make the head 1" tall).

    Feet are one head length long.
    Hands are 3/4 of a head long (equal to the average face on the head)
    From the center of the kneecap to the ground is two head lengths.
    Upper arms are 1 1/2 head lengths, lower arms are 1 1/4 heads long.

    Learn these quick measures, and try some sketches to hone them.
    You have a good creative imagination, but need to get your proportions better in order to make your ideas more believable.

    It would be interesting to see this guy after some body adjustments!

    I thing that biggest problem here is that figure falling, and also seems that head is drowed over torso. I think that using basic objects(like cylinders, eggs...) could help you to pull the roundnes.
    Also take care on line. You can use thin sharp lines, thin soft lines, thick sharp lines ,thick soft lines, and everything between.
    TRy to represent everyhing with lines. On lighter parts lines could be thiner, on far awey object could be softer.
    Also dont try to keep your drawing clean. Just use rubber to pull some parts out.

    i suck at drawing so ill only comment the coloured one, hehee

    the thing that i noticed first wasnt the proportions or anatomy problems, i did notice them too, but they didnt bother me as much as the lack of shadows.. heh, im big fan of richard corben so mayby thats it, but i think youll benefit alot if you just think a bit about the lightsource and how the shadows fall. one thing that helped me, was to copy photos with simple ligthing, you know, with only one or two ligthsources. itll be easier to understand the forms that way ..oh and dont trace photos, you'll not learn much that way

    i have improved the most by using photos as reference.. you know, life art courses can be more helpful than photos, but all the ones that i have been to had terrible lighting
