Hello there ppl! My name is Radu (aka Keenox) and I'm 17(updated). I'm from Tulcea, Romania and I like drawing, listening to music, science, programming, 3d modelling and generally creative actions. Hmmmm....that's all about me (u can find out more in my profile). Here are some sketches.... (recent and not only)
That's all folks (for today). I'm waiting for constructive C&C and i warn you that i won't update this daily.... there's no time, I'm sorry

Any feed back....ppl? Anybody?
welcome to the sketchbook section, hope you enjoy your stay here as much as i do.
now for c+c: there's a lot of stuff to be said, lots of tips and techniques to be learned for sure, but i ain't gonna write them all down here. instead i suggest you dig into some loomis or other sources for learning and understanding anatomy fundamentals. how about you take the human skull as a starting point. find some good reference and draw draw draw untill you know it from all possible angles, from memory.. that should boost your skills up a notch or two.
looking forward to seeing the progress! keep posting
salut omule, i agre with Hyver, open an anatomy bok and dorow from that, i se you like ti drow skeletons, if you want to make them stand out more do what Hyver says, good luck and sedere placuta.
My guarding angel is a double agent !!
The school is almost over... It smells like holiday... SO, I decided to go for some anatomy and draw some skulls from reference. I found some very good pictures here. I did some 5-10 min. speed sketches yesterday night at 1:00-1:30 am. So here they are...
Need some crits
Some sketches during classes (i was too bored)
A concept of a dog-man mixture ...
And a female from Playboy pictures...(not made during clases )
Some crits welcomed especially on the dog-man's anatomy
Edit: PS About the Loomis books : I've read a little. They have a pretty good theory, but it seems TOTALLY absurd to me to draw from other's people's drawings. I agree, it gives you a good ideea of how you should see the world and how you can simplify it, but I just can't draw after someone's else drawings. I have to have the real person or photo in front of me to draw and observe...

nice work on the bull,and the skulls came out pretty swell too!
Next time you draw people, try and look at a muscle chart and draw the person as if they had no skin, so you only see the muscle. This is apretty good way to get some anatomy practise under your belt
keep it up!!
Some more... done in the german class... and some doodles and warm-ups made at home:
Hope you like them... I know i'm posting very little, but I don't have very much time for drawing and my room and desk are a TOTAL MESS!
nice work on the skulls - try to memorise their proportions and refer to them in your mind, as you draw human heads. (i see you're doing that already so good show)
be mindfull about the face area vs back of the head size relation.. some of your heads have a rather neandertahl vibe going on. try to put the eyes in the middle of the skull (heightwise) and work from there
keep it up
Hey hyver! Thanks for your comments! I'll keep in mind what you said.
†Great sketches so far, though if you havnt already pick up an anatomy book should help a bit other then that I would love to see more work!

Found some sketches made some time ago ....
<--- some head studies made some time ago
<--- some dry leaf studies
<--- a standing nude (from imagination)
I want crits!...
Just playing with photoshop last night... i try to get used to my tablet... i can't get on very well with digital media ... and i really need to change my nib 'cos i messed it up tryin' to get it out with a nailcutter (stupid me)
Found some crap in one of my sketchbooks... I thought i should post it...
...a portrait - non referenced...
I wanted to draw a man stroke by a thunder, but I abandoned the idea - reference - a photo of me
Some landscape concepts...
Some nudes (non ref'd) - just exercising with my ink pen
non ref'd - exercising my female anatomy skills - I kinda suck in anatomy
hope u enjoy 'em...
Small update. Trying to improve my portraits.
yeah, keep it up man, good talent.
The design on the left reminds me of Frank off Donnie DarkoOriginally Posted by Keenox
I'm back ... I've been to mountains and in the Bulgarian seaside... after 3 days I'll go in Croatia...
Yeticatcher: Thanks man, I'll do as you say.
Newbs: Thanks for the good words.
Devilboy: I've never heard of Donnie Darko,but i've searched wikipedia and found out that it's a movie (never seen it, though)
Some ink sketches. Trying a new tehnique
Some worm-ups. Inspired by some weird potatoes
Some nature studies (a house roof and some tree braches) while trying to improve my ink drawings
Nature study: different versions of a metal cup and a phone card.
Aquarelle and solluble pencils drawings
I think this really sucks It's REALLY MESSY. Also tried to learn to use my watercoulours (aquarelle)
Tried to draw (from memory) a mean face i've seen in a tattoo parlour, but it didn't got out as I wanted... it's rather caricatural than mean
Some Frank Miller style drawings ... I think they are not so well done
Lips and nose - no reference - from mind
Some faces made while scanning the drawings above

Hope you enjoy!

Last night before I fell asleep, this image with a troll pointing with his finger in a war scene came in my mind... I need some advice for the hand and for the whole character
I'd like to see you really try to render an image to make it look 3-d. Maybe get a picture of someone's face and just keep working on it till it looks almost photorealistic.
That's what I'd like to see anyway.
The school has just begun. Some doodles(some colors added in ps) and a comic(my 1st one). Both made during first classes of this year. Really boooring!
I love that comic, brilliant!
Nice job on the studies, keep at it mate.

Some new sketches. Did some quickies from some portraits found on the web. I'm not satisfied at all with them
Some quickies i did today in pauses between classes. (Stole some concept from Fellah - sorry man! hope you don't get mad). The head looks a bit tilted on the top
still trying to improve my portraits...i thought that this one got out better, but it hasn't. The lower part is smaller than the higher one and i think it is because i draw on a flat desk (damn perspective). The port. is not finished yet, but i don't know how can i fix it. maybe i should make myself something like a wooden board so i can fix this "flat desk problem".
(edit: 23:48 - added 3rd pic - thin and thick black marker... still trying )
here is the portrait and the ref:
