    Hey Eku,

    Do us a favor and change the image size in either photoshop or the setting in your camera or scanner. About the pics, nice expressions on the first one...work from life as often as you can. Think of it as building your library of images. Work with basic shapes and draw how light reflects and bounces off them. Reference anatomy pictures from online...and an absolute must is getting Drawing From the Right Side of the brain by Betty Edwards. Gogogo!

    Cool, I like your use of colour, and you do some awesome patterns (something I'm a an of). Definately more life drawing and proportion needed, but hey, that's always something we need. You have an interesting style, something I can see developing into awesome, but you need the foundations first. Hope the Sketchbook group helps

    I love the style on these, those monkey/horned-critters in the beginning are great. The hands look a bit funky in places (like the ring finger on the middle right) so more studies on that would be good.

    That crazy-warrior guy is making me smile, and the women laying down look very encouraging for anatomy studies - they look right for the most part.

    Awesome figure drawings. you might want to work on female face structures a bit, though. The last drawing of the guy's face is pretty good, but the mouth is a bit high and to (our) right.

    So from the post I have received you all seem to say I should practice figure drawing. Iíve been tell myself to do that since last year just never started but now Ií am taking drawing a bit more seriously now. These drawing are just what I did this weekend practiced.
    This
    drawings was just a doodle that I was going to put into the DSG but I didnít really like it that much.

    Again the woman lying down looks the best in terms of figures - glad to hear you're going to do some studies, I look forward to 'em. I like the spiraling vine pattern you put on your to-be DSG.

    I agree, some figure studies wouldn't harm.
    I like your style though!
    It has something edgy, keep it up!

    Check out the new anatomy links... Here, they might help. Draw more from real life. Real life is good. Keep it up, you have a neat style.

    Figure drawing will help your 3d rendering too. It's tedious, sometimes, but necessary. Your eyes are getting better, and those lips are pretty cool. The proportions in your figures are also improving.

    I like those eyes. Is the last image you posted an illustration of a scene or something? It looks like it wants to be finished out. =]

    nice sketches, you may improve if i tell you this:

    there are 2 ways of learning drawing, and in both ways you need to think logically, so you understand the form of the things you draw:

    1st way: drawing with construction
    2nd way: drawing with experience/intuition

    for the first way i just need to remind that the mathematical argumentation is always right. so, for example i have a cube 1*1*1 and i want to turn it 45 degrees: then i just use cos 45 * 1 <-- that's 1 side of the cube

    2nd way: you roughly know how something looks like, because you have that 2 dimensional image in your head


    i overpainted one of your sketches to make you understand what i mean:



    ps: you can practice the perspective stuff by drawing cuboid
    try to turn them, then you recognize what you need to know!

    hope this helps

    Glad you at least drew some stuff, =D. I really like that last study, with statue-looking figure. Definitely try and finish that, or do more, they look good. Also that little gesture mannequin guy on the first page (he's off to the right) sends off a great dynamic gesture for his torso and upper legs, etc., you did a good job with that. Keep it up!

    Oh, regarding your signature question, you need to add the
    [ URL="http://www.conceptart.org/...filepathtoyoursketchbook/" ] EKU_11's sketchbook [ / URL ]
    in (without the spaces), otherwise it's just text sitting there looking colorful. =]

    Do you have one of those little art mannekins? Those are great! I like the folds of cloth on your Roamn-type guy there. Work on him some more, I think he could turn out great.

    Hope to post up some work sooon been a bit busy with other things.Thanks for the comments.

    rsnurkle Thanks for the tip with my signature look alot better now and it link people to were they need to go. Did even see that dynamic gesture with the mannequin guy till you pointed it out.

    Madfishmonger I've got 2 of thoes little art mannekins one just a simply wooden one and the other is a more realistic looking human one there great for drawing. I did like 3 other roman guy and that one is the best, I was very pleased with the way i got the folds of cloth.

    Keep at it Eku - I like that hand study a lot.

    There's a vitality to your work - make sure to maintain it as you get more "acurrate" with your figures and anatomy.

    Mannequins and anatomy, yay! Those are coming along, so...more!
    I like that two-legged creature at the bottom, it seems to have personality. Your stylization is still cool, the colored, wide, cartoon guy looks very good. Glad the signature is working out.

    I ve started to play around with colors again it like a whole new world that I never really looked into someday it seem like there just so much to do that I feel a little overwhelmed but I bet everyone goes thought that.

    Anyway the first piece of work kind of just happened I did this really simply face and just keep going heaps of different drawings for it and this I think is one of the better one's
    [IMG][/IMG]


    The other works is a self portrait that Iím going for this portfolio soon us it asks for a design or illustration showing creative use of color and all I could think of is my face coloured in.

    [IMG][/IMG]

    Just some stick figures did in semi action like poses.
