you need to get your images up to a proper site so we can see them.. there all linked back to CA for some reason.
Try using http://www.photobucket.com
Then copy the picture adress and put them into the IMG tags like uve done there..
Hope tht helps
Sorry about the technical difficulties. Thanks a lot, Andy.
Well... I think that your lines are looking good, but for some reason, the un-armoured man's proportions don't look correct compared to the armoured men. But the female drawings look perfect, so it looks like you allready know all that. I really don't know what else to say..'cause I don't know enough about anatomy n' perspective to crit..lol.. but I can say that you need to work on the hand of the first girl on the left, in the last image there. I think It's lacking perspective or somthing! hehe
I hope I helped..even just a bit
Hey some nice stuff going on.
In terms of improvement - apart from the usual 'draw more, practice anatomy blah' try and aim to get your basic proportions and perspective correct generally. ie some of your side on profiles have the legs on the same 'plane' when the back leg should be higher than the foreleg due to perspective.
Try and vary your line weight to pop out features and areas - especially those closest to the viewer.
Start to use tonal value and shading instead of lines to create muscle masses
Try and get away from the 'anime' look until you have developed some grounding and let's see some more stuff
Hey everyone, thanks a lot for your critiques. I really appreciate them. Here are some more work that I have done. The mercenary is my latest. The rest are just older drawings that I liked. As Always comments and critiques are always appreciated.

I like your action poses, especially of the girl coming forward towards us. With the girl who's twisting her back to look at us, hand going out to the sides at 45 degree angles (damnit, she's the one in the middle), I think if you would make her hair twist around her form as well it would really make it come alive. I like the merc, great pose, but he needs a bigger gun. We all need bigger guns.
Apathy, the new political party. "Just because it's bad doesn't mean it couldn't be worse.. so in reality we're doing great!"
Thanks a lot for the comment Books. I went ahead and changed the gun up. It's a bit longer, though not bigger. Otherwise I'll have to go with machineguns and throw bulletlinks around him. Which isn't a bad idea!!
Draw more from reallife, even u don't like to hear it ^^
Your Poses looks really dynamic. Your style is a little bit like Lovelocks.
C: The legs of The Orcsoldier looks strange.
I hope this pic helps ;D
Chr!z- Thanks for the comments. I'll see if I can fix him later.
Err -That Fat Kid- Sorry don't really know your name . No you didn't piss me off. I need the critiques. Thanks. You're right I did draw the gun last. Guess I should draw the gun first then I can position the hands right.
Any ways here's my next batch. 3 models facing off to see who's the pretiest. The first one was my attempt at some really hard details on a face, using a refernce. Guess I went way over my head. I would put up a poll but I don't think it's necesssarry. You decide.
Interesting stuff...sorta vaguely reminds me of fantasy cartoons from the 80's, like He-Man. Work on the faces a bit more, but looking good there.
Thanks for the C&C guys.
Quinster: I've made some changes to the last girls face and have started a coclor WIP thread with her. Please check it out and see if it works.
Fat Kid: Well Except for the old lady, the other 2 girls were done from my head. Well 98% of them at least. I had to look up somes leg positions for the last girl. The one I found was covered in a dress but I figured it out. Even though I was happy with her, there are still issues I need to fix.
Good work here Noiio. Iwould suggest working your anatomy. It will bring some great realism to you characters and also help with the proportions(a problem i often have). I find it good to start with a rough sketch and then fill in the details. That way you can workout any conflicts with the scene or character before you put in all the work on detail. Just my two cents. Keep up the good work.
Sketchbook:: //// A thread of evolution ////
Hey Noi, had to take a look at your sb and I have to say I really like your stuff, my favourite is the amphibian looking doctor with the monocle and apron. The only thing you could try fixing would be his right leg as it seems to get a little strange at the knee and its big toe should align a little better with the other foot. Oh and add a "KISS THE COOK" logo on the apron and he'll be perfect
rock n' roll mcdonalds!
mah lil' sketchbook
awsome stuff, but try to get away form making your characters too skinny
I had the same problem too
try differant body shapes and sizes
oh and give the girls some hips man
Hey noi, like your clowns! Those are probably my favorite. (the one on the left needs to have his center of gravity fixed though...just so he doesn't fall over).
I've said it before and I'll say it again; your legs are too long! ('specially on that kicking girl). I liked the perspective on the feet though.
hey noi, since you have been helping me out so much, i figured i'd give you a couple pointers.
1. for your proportion problems(long leggedness), i use the stan lee method, 7&1/2 heads high, with the legs starting at the mid point. it sounds kinda goofy, but i used "learn to draw the marvel way" to learn alot of my drawing techniques. hey its written by steve buschemi and stan lee...who am i to argue???...lol
2.have you used the "balloon method " to flesh out your skeletal structures? i seem to be able to spot the errors in proportion much earlier in the drawing process, so i dont spend hrs. on a drawing to have it look funny as the final piece.
well, thats all i got at the moment, other than proportion i like the sketches!
Dang, I've been gone so long, I don't even know where to start. Sorry guys, school was tough(especially when it didn't involve art.)
sasco: Thanks for the input. The amphibian was supposed to be an inventor instead of a cook.
Baki: Thanks for posting man. I'm still trying to figure out those flaws.
Bad brownie: Thanks for drilling that into my head. I'll be watching out for it from now on.
Theprofessor: The How to Draw Marvel's Way was actually the book that taught me how to draw. I was using the ballppn method for awile until I thought that I was good enough to not need it. BOY WAS I WRONG. THanks man.
Anyways, here's what I was working on while I was away. Hope you guys enjoy. As always C&C are alwsys greatly appreciated.
I'd say take alot longer on your studies. It looks like you just tried to do them up quick. "Render like a slug." Good luck
Thanks for replying, guys!
Fatkid: I'll keep that in mind when I draw more off those fan arts.
Pixeldragoon: You're right. Anatomy is a subject that I dread. That and still life. I'll put more time into it next time. No pain no gain right?
I agree, anatomy.
just wanna add myself to the agreement of anatomy to push u a lil more to anatomy studies.
Hey everyone! As requested, I've finally started some anatomy studies. I have been taking AnP 1. With this class, I have some access to some really cool models. Hopfully I'll be able to do some sketches and post some stuff that I have learned here every week for the duration of the class time. As Always C&C's are greatly appreciated.
your art has a very cool style...
you seem to have the hardest part down and that is having your own style...
i would like you to try mixing animals wit humans...
but if your going to try learn about those legs... the legs extra joint
there is a difference between bipeds(humans) and quadrupeds(animals).
my favorites are that frog...the joint in the legs look like theyre in place
and the clowns... due to the variations
ps i dont like the bomberman remix cuz you should of made him shorter like the clown all the way on the right; nowadays....
your design in costumes and clothing is pretty nice2 ...
Hey Thanks, Acro. This thread's been invisible for a long time. I was actually going for a Masked Rider Costume type foe Megaman. I guess it didn't appeal to many people. Oh Well.
Here's a revamped of it.
Ironman Picture. I know.. The left leg was heel to work on and it's still wrong. I'll tackle it later.
Here's the latest.
