    Feel free to critisize, but bare in mind that I'm trying to learn to draw on my own, without any teachers or special lessons, so your words really matter to me and my future as an artist (if there is any )

    Hi there. Like you I've learnt (and am learning) on my own - can be tough at times.

    My favorite is definately the second - which in my oppinion could be even better if you lighten up the shade on her zygoma closest to the viewer (*her* right).

    The others are weaker. General advice is to study proportions, like for example the woman with the burning hand has an enormous sword hand compared to the rest of her body. Also her arm-jewelery has a weird perspective and seems flat.

    The knight is also proportionally-challenged (too short forearms and wobbly posture).

    Anyway, hope this helps.

    -Th

    10x for the ideas, I had noticed that the sword hand was bigger than the other one, but since I had already done the shading I didn't want to ruin it.
    When I have some progress made I'll post again.

    Just keep it going. You have a ways to go until you hit the next level and the only way to get there is to draw and draw. Draw things from realy life, take a life drawing class (nude) and just keep drawing like your life depends on it. Try to put more of yourself into your work, make it personal. Learn about Joseph Campbell and Carl Jung. Images have power in them, seek this source.

    Yes russell I'm the same Artox from the stereovision forums !
    I really would like to put everything aside for drawing markwagner, however I'm studying internatiobal economic affairs, which actually doesn't leave enough time for drawing as much as I would like.

    In the second picture (girl's head), the shading in the area between her nose and lip gave her a deformed look.

    I'm going to be general and just say work on anatomy and perspective. That seems to be your biggest pitfall at the moment. ; )

    Absence makes the heart grow fonder. Absence and booze.

    There are no small sketchpads, just small artists.

    The make-perfect button must come from within.

    I loved the second one, but the nose needs a little work. Other than that, nice work!

    haha cool. same russ from there

    im the same as you, really trying to learn stuff on my own, i have been coming on leaps and bounds since coming here and reading peoples advice.

    my advice? a big folder, and save lots of the images from the posts here.. because they can disappear after a while, (lots of the images in the best of CA thread have gone :/
