For someone who doesnt take art classes, these are pretty good. I like the mech ones, for your figure work, if you get the chance get some anatomy books. Try to think of basic forms, the painted self portrait looks nice, but somethings get alittle wierd like the nose, but you seem to have the right idea.
Thanks for the crit! By basic form do you mean proportions or more like alignment? I have Drawing the Human Body and hogarth's dynamic body or something like that that I try look over from time to time, plus some andrew loomis' books. But they are all already so refined that they are like pictures already. But I'll keep in mind what you said and focus more on the basics. (think more generally right?)
You have something going on Omi-kun, something good. Some of the sketches look a little rushed, but the others look like you took your time, and they came together well, both in concept and in how precisely you picked out your lines. Might I suggest you avoid using a soft edged brush, or airbrush in your images, it is necessary, and make the painting look mushy. Keep up the good work.
Well - most of your images don't seem to have any airbrushing, and they are sweet looking. The strokes of color that you are using, like in that self portrait communicate lighting, hue, planar changes etc just fine. Personally, I think seeing the strokes and letting the viewer's eye do the mixing and blending keeps the image lively.
Can I ask a question?
ARe you japanese.Cuz I think you are looking at those mechas. I am not japanese but I am crazy about them too,Though I dont draw them much.The last post where you mix photos with paintings look good.Can you post a bit more sketches of mecha and some explanation about their structure and all that.
