    Andorz is flicking your switch

    Check the later pages for better material.


    "I don't know how happy drawing makes you. but you should continue anyway, because how else will people remember you? What else will you do with your time? How will your ego be sustained with no creative work? As you can see, there is really no choice, everyone HAS to draw or perhaps write music. Maybe some people can be happy killing others, or building houses, or just consuming mass amounts of drugs - but I think you will only be happy if you feel you are creative. Otherwise your death is immediate."

    Nice work. I don't really have any critique other than that the colour on the first one looks off and the mouth seems a bit too far to the side.

    Andorz--

    Looks like I'm on the team!

    Good stuff. I'd look at your modelling a bit-- I'd love to see more indication of light and form, even if it's only in your linework. Looking forward to more.

    nice stuff, I like the fact that you are trying to give facial expressions into the characters you make

    The outline on the little bird is too dark. It makes it hard to see the other leg. The back leg on the monster needs to be a little smaller, I think. There's some foreshortening issues in there. And the hand seems to be at a slightly awkward angle...

    Otherwise, good work.

    hehe, nice stuff you got here!! Actually it's a bit hard for me to give crits since especially the faces look almost 'abstract' with all these exegerated expressions, I simply do not know if you do that on purpose.
    One thing that I can say for sure is that you seem to have a great imagination, dude!!
    Keep at it!

    Hello! im in your sketchgroup, so i thought i'd pop by and leave a comment.

    My first impression is that your ideas would be so much more awesome if they were backed up by a stronger fundemental knowledge. I'd definately recommend studying anatomy, and draw alot from reference or from life. (preferrably the latter..) Characters become so much more convincing when you dont guess on anatomy or proportions. I would recommend reading figure drawing for all its worth, you can find it at www.saveloomis.org

    I love the expression of the characters, and since they are already looks promising, i think you can get far, with training.

    Keep em coming!

    Hey mate.. good stuff going on in here. Your monsters make me think of cartoonfox Dude makes some cool creatures.

    Slash's got some good advice. Also I'd suggest practicing perspective drawing some, it will help you draw pretty much anything you can think of. Check out Loomis' Successful Drawing, there is really good stuff in there about fundamentals of forms and light.

    The combination of being extremely busy, having no memory at all and being tired 24/7 has lead to the fact that i haven't drawn as much as i would've liked to. (Which has lead to the weak... ok, non-existing posting of pics in my SB) I'm so very sorry for that.
    BUT, here's some pics. I'm gonna try to draw as much as i can now during the chistmas break.

    all is great stuff andorz

    I'm going to give some crits on your grandfather;
    - the right eye is higher then the left one
    - your hairline should be way smaller
    - the nose is a bit big

    for the rest it is a absolutely fabulous drawing, you have managed to let him look like your grandfather.

    keep drawing!

    Also, you can't see any eyelids, and there's no corner on the eyes. The face seems too long overall, the chin mark is too high and the hair is off centre, as is the nose.

    hey andorz'

    good work here... these two are my favorites:
    http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a3...attegubbar.jpg
    http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a3...antindian2.jpg

    i really like to see where your imagination is taking you ... i really like to see that in a sketchbook. the green circle with the heads totally cracked me up... i can imagine you drawing this during mathclass, pretending to take notes. Definitely continue to put it down straight outta yr head often... it's so important to do so.

    on the perspective studies, there are a couple of minor problems. first of all, the yellow is kind of distracting. it's such a powerful color, you have to use it with discretion. secondly, the lines of your buildings would be so much better if they were a. thinner and b. drawn with a ruler. i think there's a cliche about using a ruler to draw stuff, but for REALLY technical stuff like this it's totally invaluable. Make them larger with much thinner lines that aren't so clumsy.

    keep up the great work frienD!

    Thanks alot for the long reply, Guggenmaneuver

    About the perspective-pics: These were very speedy and i had a lot of fun doing them and i didn't really mind if the lines were straight of not, I kinda liked the sketchy effect. And i wanted the yellow outlines to very distracting and stand out alot.
    I'm thinking about making a new one (or several) and then I'll certainly keep in mind what you said These pics are about 10*13-15 cm, if I make a new one I'll probably make it bigger with more details and stuff. And more yellow stuff >;D.

    Thanks again.
    Andorz.

    yo, andorz, I really like the last one a lot! I think the mood is great!! maybe a bit more contrast and more diversion with your lines (make them sometimes thicker, and sometimes thinner) and everything will be awesome
