    hi michael. maybe you could post a little larger scaled images. i can't see that much on these thumbs. so far it looks ok, reminds me of my earlier drawings.

    edit: haha i just found out that i have to click on those images. hehe....
    i really like that watercolor, but maybe you shouldn't have give her that mangaface?

    Michael - really nice start to the sketchbook. Welcome to #14!

    (If my sketchbook went to school, it would get its ass kicked everyday at the bike racks.)

    SSG#14: We'll think of a better name someday!

    Hey Michael, I like your use of watercolor. That's a hard medium to master. The linework could be better, but that will come with practice. Keep going!

    well.. it's good for a lifedrawing.. you almost got all the proportions right yet still you should do some pure anatomy studies.. try out some of rebecca kimmel's examples, they're really helpful to all levels.

    Good start so far! You've probably heard this before, but anatomy studies will really help your art. Can't wait to see more once you have a better hosting service!

    heyman good to see some life drawing! im glad
    i would suggest to always look for the 2 most important masses- ribcage and waist when drawing figures! i think that would help a lot. altho this is my opiinon, id also suggest to draw the model in your life drawings, and not stylise it with anime faces...if you draw more real life faces chances are it will end up making your anime stuff better.
    still youre doing well for only 2 years of drawing! youre journeys just started

    Slayer, thanks for recommending Kimmel, I just looked her up and she's already got a lot of tutorials online for me to feed on
    Rodrigo, I do draw a lot of real faces, it's just the woman was really ugly... More ribcage, more waist...gotcha
    Thanks for the suggestions/comments everyone.

    Hey there!

    Those anime pictures look good. If you want to push them further you could clean em up in photoshop and add some shading to them.

    If you want to improve in understanding the form, i'd suggest some life studies. I know it doesn't seem to relate to comic style that well, but trust me it helps a ton when drawing your own stuff. Comic characters are simplified from reality, but still follow (kinda) the same principles.

    Hope that makes any sense, i'm kinda tired right now

    inkfish has made some good points! Id like to add when drawing robots, to draw all their parts into 3D shapes, like spheres, cylinders and boxes, it will help tp draw complex shapes in perspective...
    also watch the width and size of your figures, in the bottom one her thighs are as thick as the torso which kind of looks odd. just be wary of how the parts of your figures look in relation to each other..but the more life drawing you do the more youll see this in action , so just keep working
