**im gonna try to post everyday with something new...the newest work will be lower down. Please tell me what you think...I really want to learn and become better...***
Hey, this is my first time posting on this site, and it's been highly recommended to me by some friends of mine. So i thought I'd start out by putting up some sketches of mine, and some sorta finished works. Some of this stuff is older, but I feel an acurate representation of the kind of art I like to do. Any, and all comments are welcome. Thanks in advance!
this is an older piece that i dug up, I'm thinking of finishing it, or re-working it. its a companion to this piece....
boredom, when I accompanied my boyfriend to his decesion sciences classes at ODU during my spring break...
the aeon flux drawing was kinda a quicky, just playing around in class, and the nude was my first attempt at ink with a brush...

I really like the amount of detail that you put into these. The top two have a lot of great stuff for the eye. Only crit I can gve is that the demon girls back leg looks a little to long, compared to her front leg. But really good stuff, can't wait to see more.
thanks, i've heard from others that it might be better if I brought it up beside the other leg...just a thought. Thanks for your comments
hey sum nice stuff here, love to see more
ur drawings are past my abilitie to crit
but i wouldnt take that as a compliment...u havent seen my stuff!
keep it up, keep it daily
lol, thanks so much. I'll do my best to post things daily. I wasn't sure my type of artwork would fit in here.
Great start! Love your details and confident line. Your Aeon Flux rocks! Keep posting!
ok. So I've gotten my feet wet. I've got a lot of fan art and stuff I work on. i tend to draw a lot of comics characters, and try to add my own little flare with color or pose. Here are some works. I'd love more feed back...or better directions...anything.
morrigan from darkstalkers, this was a comission for an anime con.
this is harley quinn...she was just a fun piece, to play with distorting anatomy.
And this is aayla secura, my favorite jedi, but once again a comission. i think I went too far with the distortion here, but it was fun to play with.
any feedback welcomed
more drawings, I figure I'll just keep posting until I can get some constructive feedback..
woman, with a gun arm...
a caricature of my ex-boyfriend, a friend, and me at the bottom...
yep...naked guy. No ref...just kinda doodles...
some concepting for characters from the Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter Novels...
I would like to know what you think, maybe areas that are weak, that need more work? Thanks in advance!
Yo, i absolutley love your style. Those first 2 rock, especially all the detail you put into the second one.
I also really like that aeon flux pic
Your colours have a very comic-ey feel to them aswell, what are you usin' for them?
Keep postin, sorry i got no crits.
thanks for the responses. For the first question, I use prisma color markers for colors, and some digital backgrounds, but ive never worked with a wacom, or really gotten into the computer colors, but its something Id like to try.
as for the other comment, thanks for pointing that out, i dont really have much training, if any, in perspective...so alot of it is guessing for me. Do you have any good resources, or books you'd reccomend?
Good work! So much energy in a Werewolf`s sketch. The girl behind the wall looks good - I like her hair and face expression. Aayla is just perfect, no kidding! And also I like the dynamics of the last piece. But anyway all of your works are great.
about perspective - maybe this link will help:
wow, nice SB, gonna keep an eye on this one
i really like the ones in the fist post (expecially the second pic)...they one i less liked were the ones in post 7, the female Twilek jedi looks really akward, don't like the pose, feels too "forced")(hahahah "forced", "jedi" hahahA)(oh my god i must quit with this shit)...
th recent character study on the female look really good, i'd like to see more stuff
thanks, I appreciate the feedback. the twilek girl was for a comission, so I didn't really get much say in her pose, and he really wanted the 'anime' ultra distorted feel. but I do see what you mean about her pose.Originally Posted by TheGnoll
Im glad you dig my work. I'm gonna continue with more studies to help improve my anatomy. thanks for the feedback!
so, im starting a series of drawings about lingerie colors. And im starting with this piece...its drawn from a photograph. Ive changed some things up, but the overall image is there. I was thinking this could be pink, or orange...y'know? More playful colors. I wanted to get feedback on the pose and shit before i ink and color it.
great work. I really like your style, do you work for anybody currently? You should get into comics or maybe some sort of anime/manga company. Well i really like the style, the only thing i can suggest is more,more,more lol!
hey zerbetron, thanks for dropping by my sketchie. Youve got good technique, nice lines. My favourite has to be No. 2, the figure, the really nice simple shading, and the detail on her arm is nice eye candy. Maybe when u feel comfortable with a certain drawing, you can start adding value, and then work on your shading style, it may be cross-hatching, etc. I learnt ortof inside out, i learnt shading before i learnt the form. But i found that by shading the object according to how the light hits it, i simultaneously learnt the shape. After all, without shape, there cant be a difference in value.
anyway, enough of me. Looking forward to see more of your works!
Your WIP... I like her facial expression, but I'm not really drawn to her lingerie, excluding the hat, I really like the hat!
I'm confident thats not a useful crit, but~well goodluck with the ink,color and rest of the series
Inked version...i decided to make her panties look more like cotton underpants and give her knee high tube socks. Since the hat was so cute, i wanted to play up that 'cutesy' look for her underwear..still thinking about colors...maybe yellow and orange?
looks great. I really like the detail in her left hand. Overall very well done. I dont like the make up but wth do i know lol. What did you use to color?
great stuff. Im learning how to use prisma colors. Ive been trying to get it down for a while.
