sometimes u cant to anything about the scaner. u just gotta go in photoshop and tweak the levels.
nice updates! scans are looking better. Now we can see the flaws in your lines! mwahhaha jking.
Are you studying anatomy? I think you should spend some time to study anatomy and proportion. The stuff you do now are good but can be vastly improved with some studying. It looks like you're using intuitive proportions which works sometimes. YOu need to find a way to render convincingly all the time. And that can only be achieve through studying.
also noticed that your lines are too thick and doesn't work well with the shading. Try to keep your lines thin and loose and define the forms with shadings. Tighter shapes and more values.
random tip: when you're drawing dynamic poses like that wolverine, the fists are always bent forward. Backbent fists aren't as dynamic.
nice, i cant see improvement! u really got the shoulder and forearms described well. ur lines are looking more confident and patient. now just to make it all pop, u should go in with a sharp mechanical pencil and define the contour lines. dont forget that contour lines are wary of the light source too. even in blocky anime style drawing. even if the changes are suttle it can make the drawing pop.
you can post in other people's SB too you know. That's part of being in a SSG.
Looking good. What are you trying to focus on right now? So I can crit in that area.
while studying anatomy, you should attemp what you're studying in your sketches. Application is one way to test how well you know your stuff, and if you run into problems, you know what to work on more. You can draw bones and muscles everyday but if you don't apply the knowledge learned to actual drawings, then it's futile. That's why you should start small, draw the skull until you can get it down from all angles w/o reference, keeping in mind the main planes and how facial features are built on top.
grats, you've found the right setting to scan stuff.
nice design. You should try to make your designs more readable. I'm not sure what the thing on her left arm is. The straps on her G-string should be lower as well, it doesn't look like it should be able to stay in that position. You need some folds on her pants too, especially at the hems since the pants are so long that they cover up the shoes so they should crumble.
Stop bumping your thread you damn poser!
Anyway, there's improvement from first to last.
Don't demoralize yourself and keep going.

I think you need to stop with the character designs and just focus on anatomy and proportions. SOme of the stuff I can tell was done from photograph because of the placement of values but the knowledge doesn't carry on over to your other stuff. Try studying anatomy, one part at a time. draw some bones, break them down into simple forms. render nothing but shapes until you can see simple shapes in everything. Learning to see is the key. I painted with simple shapes for nearly half a year and it was boring sometimes but it has paid off. I really stress starting small and progressing slowly because you're posting some chests, legs, some planes mapping and they're all surface structures. YOu gotta understand what's underneath before you put stuff on top. If you can get your bones down you'll be ahead of me because I stopped awhile back at the scapulas.
lol nice stuff, how are u doing thos digi paint overs? u useing stejpan's smudge tool?
excellent tips master. how long have u been drawing oki? sometimes too much information can become overwhelming. and numbing. u get it and u get all pumped up and try and do something amazing, and get ur self esteem shot to hell wen u do something absolutely shity. but wen u have the right techniques and the will power to practice them and hone them u will get better fast.
i already see improvement. err mabey thats teh scanner lol. nah im serious tho, ur getting better, keep at it.
go there. it has a special brush u can create urself in photoshop cs 1 or 2. if u have niether its still a good idea to read through the whole thread. very helpful stuff.
Do some life drawing! An sp from the mirror, your dog, your shoes, whatever. Draw from life and work up your observational skills, then put those to use in figuring out your problem areas. For now I'd say you should focus on heads, and the nose would be a decent place to start.
very nice, i really like ur line work, its getting much better. more confident. try something permanent. yeah life drawing is the shiz.
ok gtg great work tho, ur getting way better. keep at it.
Definitely noticing progress here. Good job on that.
Now, on the environmental side: we artists are a true hazard to worlds pretty woods. You can sooooooooooooooooo fill up the empty space more! Don't be afraid to mess up, you can always redo it, if necessary. Before you draw a specific pose, do a small thumbnail, that can help you with the posture and help you fix errors you'll hit later on.
And to improve your lineconfidence: maybe try drawing with pen sometimes. No undo buttons/ erasers there, so that could help you with your lines.
