    Thanks OBX ^_^ I'm having an interview sunday, i have to do a character concept, one small the other exactly double the size, same pose. If you have any tips feel free to share. Anyway, I have to show some of my works so they can decide if I have enough potential for them to spend their time giving me lessons.

    yeah, thats tought. I wish u lots of luck tho. hopefully just by studying ur lines and ur knowledge of form, they could see u have lots of potential. Anyone has potential, its just a matter of working at it, and honeing it. Drawing for like 5-10 hrs a day. do that for a week and ull get vast improvement. they'll prolly also look for creativity and uniqueness. Not to much u can do about that, just let ur imagination go wild wen u draw. like i said tho, its not soo much about potencial as it is about commitment and passion. everything comes in time, and constant desire.

    what are you interviewing for?
    are you doing a char concept for one regular sized char, and one twice his/her size? If that's the case and you want to remain realistic, you'll have to add more mass to the 2x sized character horizontally. Proportions won't be the same as a regular person either. If you draw him really wide, his head won't be wider to fit the 3 head wide proportion. Jim Lee said to think of a starfish while drawing The Thing so if you're drawing someone big you can relate to that. So add more width, not so much height, on the 2x bigger guy. Go easy on the shading too in a character concept so it's not mistaken for details.

    While I'm there I think you could tone down on your shadings overall. Your shadings could use more thought in some area, if you're not sure where to shade, you should take some time to study and understand the form. really study the cast shadow shapes. If you put in some marks w/o much thought you'll change the way the form looks.

    too dark, specially one that last one. change the contrast in photoshop or sumthing.looking good.

    u need to describe the elbows and knees more. doesnt make ur arms and legs believalbe.

    watch ur torso size... it completly overpowers the 2 female figures.

    great stuff tho. i like the very first one, and that dude holding the techno axe thingaroo.

    I had to lower the darkness and contrast because i have a lot of really light tones, so any higher and we wouldn't be able to see any of them

    Mentok commands you to do more!

    You still have problems with contrast, but from what I can see there's improvement in your figures overall.
    You need to become more subtle with your lines though.

    Try being more loose with your pencil- Look at the way Bridgman divides the muscles into groups- Do alot of muscle studies, then draw mind figures keeping these groups in mind. Observe alot more, and make sure you have something relevant in mind every time you draw from life. Also try showing plane surfaces more- Don't be afraid to drag your pencil across your drawing to show form. A good method to remember hands is to segment them. Draw a straight line, and everywhere your hand can bend, palm, knuckles, etc., just draw a line across. IMO it helps with memorizing how the hand works, proportions, etc.

    Don't draw meaninglessly!!! When you draw from life, think of why you are doing it. Speed? Accuracy? Value? Pay attention to what you are working on- Don't just draw from life because it kinda makes you better- you will get alot more out of it if you stay focused.

    Simplify shapes more, the boobs just kinda sweep 'em. Try not picking up your pencil when you draw, look at the pic, then look at your paper. Run your pencil over an area, look back at the pic, judge your ghost run, then re aim it and draw that part. It should help with accuracy/confidence. I found confidence isn't only in not having scratchy lines, or only in using few lines, but using them competently. Sketchy competence is still confident, you just gotta GO FOR IT BRUTHA!!!!

    Keep it up man, I'll check back here later. Check out Greensock's book, do some gestures like he does. They help you realize what you are bad at. Don't spend time on details, GROUP IT GROUP IT GROUP IT!!!!

    on the last pic, on the girl, I don't think the spine can bend that much. The rib cage and pelvis chould never be at a right angle.

    The Be Myself Project. What I'm going to try and do with this is basically just draw w/e i want, not try to draw like someone else. [That doesn't mean i won't do master copies etc.] Going to stop worrying about whether it looks cool or not. Just back to the basics. I'm going to do this for 30 days. If i happen to miss a day (i'll be going to Montreal, not for the work shop though.) please remind me and i'll post all the work up on the next day).

    Hey there. Being yourself is good and all. But right now i think you should focus a little more on anatomy studies. All your legs are terribly short compared to the rest of the bodies, to name one thing. Study over and over again anatomy, say out loud the proportion rules as you draw them out.

    So, more anatomy studies! And keep going!

    what's your goal for doing these? you should try to tackle some anatomy problems as you go a long so you can get something out of it. Being yourself is always good but if you just keep drawing and you understand how to compose an illustration, your voice will always show through. That's why if you go to painting schools, you'll learn how to paint for 3 years before they teach you how to express yourself.

    very nice, i like ur last update. shorten the torso a bit, its kindof a consisten problem. next time u draw one, make it intensionally shorter, i mean like really short, midgit waist. drawing then that way will conter ur tendancies.
