hey gnoll- thanks for your feedback! I really like the composition on the blue zombie thingy picture! Generally you should pay attention to your lines and silhouettes- two very important tools that do alot for you.. first thing i associate with silhouettes is hurricanes work! I bet youve seen it before.. but you can check on it again and maybe learn from his shapes and silhouettes. i really enjoyed the linework of that monster in the last post too. One last thing: Do some value studies! i suggest working monochromatic at first. just play around with midtones highlights and dark shadows.

@JaïnvanNigtevegt: thx! yeah, already heard this before...you're damn right...i'll try to practice on vehicles and enviros, but i'm really crap at doing those...but i guess i'll have to try sooner or later
@Andy Nicho: thanks, i will
@zao75231:thx a lot, i'ts nice to see people look at my sketchbook!so, i gotta fcus on dynamics and flow, and proportions? well'i'll try yeah, i use pen pressure, but i'm still a noob with PS...
@kyi_72:wow, somebody notice the flying machine, thats good...i have to do more of that kind of stuff...and yeah, i love creature designs....
@krakel: yeah, you're not the first to tell me...and that means i did'nt improve yet...doh! i'll try more, i'll promise (guess i might as well get a couple of markers and try to work on some dynamic thumbnails with a good silhuette).About the monochromatic studies, i already tryied to do some, but guess i have to do more...i'd better do some live drawings too...
@Cordy: thx to you! I really enjoyed colouring those lines, hope the results were good enough...i don't have enought time to practice with the colouring (damn school).I hope to get much better with sequential art, or i'll never get this damn thing started
...too much stuff to do.Oh well.
Not really feeling like drawing lately, but here's my last load o'crap, enjoy.

Top of head as bottom of jaw is a cool idea, also dig the mirror image horns, these two ideas are worth further exploration. Looks like a real abomination, I don't see it as the ultimate villain though, it's more like the Rancor from Starwars: an animal prisoners are fed to. I like the samurai composition, the tree, club, and sword all parallel. The little japanese building in the background is a nice touch too, further emphasizing the fatguy's hugeness. Guy in foreground looks like he's going to tip over, straightening his right leg creating a vertical line with the fat guy should help the composition.
well, actually i didn't express myself the right way, the thing up there actually is an abomination, it in't a villan, it's just the big monster the main character fights in the end, and the mother/father of all the minor abominations (they get out of the huge mouth on his belly)...and you see, that thing was one human...i didn't really know how to how that, so i just slapped those little human arms in it...maybe i should try something else, like a suffering human face somewere, dunno i was thinking about changing the lower pair of oincers in some kind of scythes (hope wrote it the right way...) gonna get those flying eyes out of the place too...anyway, i still have to define the final "thing"...guess this is gonna be a hard drawing...
by the way, a sketch i did while waiting for someone to post
its a General from distant Cathay (still WIP)
