    My First thread, my drawings need feedback!

    All right, this is my first try at this place, so if I screw up on anything, then.. my bad. =P

    Hm, okay, just recently I decided to draw a gemsbok antelope, and to challenge myself a little I turned it from standing on all four, to prouncing. I'm a bit unhappy about how the hoves and horns turned out, but it turned out pretty okay. Any ideas how to make him more realistic?

    And now just some random drawings I've done the past years, the ones I like the most. =P.. I'm working on anathomy pretty much, so if you have any ideas on how to make it look better, please tell! =)

    Okay, here I tried to follow some pointers from an animator video, only I colored the horse in Photoshop instead of using pencils.

    looking nice, very nice work on the horses. I guess I would say practice alot more with basic anatomy if you want to get good with the human form, there's not really a short cut, just anatomy, life drawing, and still lifes are my advice.

    oh yeah, welcome to to Ca.org

    I have only one crit to give you, and my credibility here is rather low, so trust me on this. But that last pic, the guy's legs are too skinny. I'd suggest making them wider, because they are of about the same thickness as his arms, which should not be.

    Hi again. Had a thought on your antelope. Some rendering of form would make it look more realistic. If you pick a lightsource for yourself, and try to render out shadows on it from that, it'll add form, and thus it'll look more realistic. Also, you could check your lineweight. Like the hind legs, they look like they're on the same plane, and the back of the front thight, and the front of the back (phew... kinda hard to explain...heh) are tangential (not sure if this is the right word), so they're hard to seperate.

    If any of this didn't make sense (if any of it DID at all), PM me and I'll try to explain..hehe.

    I'm diggin' on the horse from '03, the one staring off into the distance.

    Hey Cam!
    I'm glad you finally decided to post some stuff up in this place. Serious critique and feedback are good for us artists.
    <i'm gonna start using this place myself as soon as I've got internet back on my puter, but only the gods know when that will be.

    Anyway... time for some critique..

    The Antelope turned out really good. Beatifully made. Very powerful and majestic. It does however look.. well.. a little flat. And I think it is because of the shadows. So I think you should do some light and shadow studies.
    Light some stuff up, and see how the shadows work.
    Now... I think that was more or less what dCept said, only he explained it with more depth... so.. yeah! Shadows!

    The furry with the guitars looks really good. Not much to say on him really, 'cept for his hands and feet.
    You know about the hands, for so you told me, but his shoes also look sort... not completely right.

    I love your horses. Your getting real good at making them! hehe.. And you've made them for a long time too, right? Sort of like with me and swords. ;P
    I love coloured one. Looks really Disney

    And the bat. Well.. I like the bat very much. The wings are awesome, and that evil little face of his cracks me up.
    He could perhaps need a little more detail on his body, though. Some more fur and stuff. And maybe some blood veins or something in his wings.


    As for the last guy, I agree with Stupidude666 on the legs.They're too skinny. And the highlights in his hair, while good, look kind of wrong.
    The small one looks ok, but the big one looks sort of out of place. I'm not 100% certain on what's wrong with it, but something is.

    Anyway... that's all for now! good job!
    See ya later! ^_^

    Thank you all very much!^^
    Hm, yeah, I do remember the thing about the same thickness of the arms and legs, now. -_- Typical to remember things afterwards. =P

    Hm, do any of you got any good tutorials or tips on how to do more advanced photoshop coloring? The best coloring I can do, is how that guy is colored. and that's not really any good at all, compared to what other fancy stuff you can put on to make it way way better.

    Oh, and how do you get the lines so clean, when scanning and fixing in Photoshop? I know about inking, but my inking always gets thick and thin lines at random places. How to get a clean nice line overall?

    Getting your lines clean the good 'ol fashioned way: practice practice practice! My linequality/lineweight was all screwed up not so long ago. I'm still working on it in every drawing I do, but as I'm saying.. practice. I think there are some tutorials on it in the tips&tricks-section here. One thing to remember is bold lines read as being in front of thinner lines.
    Do you have a tablet, or are you using a mouse when you working in PS?
    I'm not too familiar with photoshop, but I think there are options to get curves with control points if you want 'em curved, and if you hold down shift while pulling a line you get a completely straight one.

    Keep those pictures coming!

    Thumbs up

    nice stuff. you should check out leonardo da vinci's horse sketches if you havent already. your drawings look a little tedious and time consuming though. i realize these are probably just studies, but try loosening up and drawing freely. you'll definitely need to if your thinking of doing animation. i assume you meant 2d. if not, it still wouldnt hurt to draw quick little sketches of motion studies over and over. they say if you can do 2d animation well, you can do 3d with less trouble.
    problem with that last dude though; with his left leg bent, his weight is gonna be shifted onto his right leg. the way he is right now looks like he's about to taste pavement. here is a little sketch by old leo da vinci showing the way it should look. notice the position of the foot in relation to the head. bridgman's anatomy covers the same thing i think.

    My First thread, my drawings need feedback!

    overall it's good stuff. you have a good eye. line quality will improve the more you draw.

    uhh.. have you ever seen an emo boy in tight jeans? haha

    your pencils are nice, and i was pleasantly suprised to not see any anime-esque style pictures when the thread was loading.. all until the second pic oh well not that its bad, its just really.. well, cliched.

    My First thread, my drawings need feedback!

    this pic is pretty hot stuff. i think the style suits you. granted, its not very original (im pretty sure thats some disney stuff.. scuse me if im mistaken), but its something you can most certainly do. props for roughing out the shape and finding the form before rendering.

    keep at it, youre sure to improve if you soak in all thats given to you and apply it to your works in future
