    The biggest issue that I see with your work is proportions! You got to watch yourself on that.I am seeing tiny heads, short arms and even long arms. ect... Your anatomy seems decent though. Try to loosen up a bit more and try to feel your poses out...they are looking a bit stiff.

    Thanks for the input. Yeah thats a big issue with me, I tend to speed through these things, when I should actually be slowing down and working out the pose making sure everything is right anatomy wise.

    I'll definatly try and keep this in mind the next time my pencil hits the paper.

    Hey Brall,

    Like was mentioned before. Awsome start and great potential. You've definitally got some creativity. You're off to a good start. I'd recommend doing some anatomy studies if you haven't already. They help out a ton. I didn't think they would when I started..I was thinking...how is drawing what I can't see going to help me draw what I can see. But it does and it also helps you get more accustomed to what you can do as an artist.

    Cant wait to see more.

    -Mike

    Nice update, out of all 4 i like the last one the best, and would like to see it taken further. Maybe a full fledged painting bro!

    I just reiterated what jackwhat said. DAMN! but do it anyways. The power of christ compels you.

    Nice update brall, I think the pose on your digital piece, the werewolf i think? I think overall its a little stiff, and too symmetrical which makes it less interesting. try moving the arms around and twisting the body to place the shoulders and hips on seperate axis'.

    Definitely want to see that piece refined! Keep it coming

    hey man, cool looking stuff! very imaginative and gritty... maybe a bit too gritty, some of you sketches look a bit too busy... just a few too many i wouldnt say unesessary lines or hatching, but just hectic and not placed very well. I think you have a good style as far as being gritty, but sometimes it interferes a bit with the overall quality of the sketch. Good work overall! Keep posting, you'll only get better.

    Long Overdue

    Like the title says, it's been a while since my last dump...So here's one to make up for lost time.

    Jackwhat: Thanks for the words of encouragement! Yeah I've been trying to put stories to my images more, although it's something I'm still working at. I hope to get back to those images and try my hand at bringing them a bit further along.

    AmazingActionApe: Thanks for, heh I do plan on giving that specific peice a work over, we'll see where it goes. Christ loves me.

    Act.Appalled: Thanks for the comments, and the encouragement. Yeah I have a problem with stiff figures. I need to go to more life drawign classes I think and really get alot of gestures down on paper, like animators do.

    This1: Thanks for taking a look here and leaving a comment. Yeah I see what your saying about my style thus far. I'd have to agree with you that sometimes I get kinda sloppy with my rnedering and it detracts from my work as a whole. Thats definatly something I'll try and improve on, and really think about the marks I'm laying down on the page.

    Thanks everyone for all your comments and encouragement!

    Looked through your thread <> remember that what we are doing is "dirtying a page delicately" as Ruskin said <> Start with the idea or concept <> determine the mass conception of that idea (basic forms) <> think about how those forms are positioned in space then draw your lines over them

    You must have a concept of mass before you can draw it....

    By popular request...

    Here's an update on the "Sorcerer's Apprentice" sketch I did a couple of posts back. Seems like you guys wanted me to push it further, so here's what I have so far.

    Compositionally looking down on this scene minimizes the impact <> this should be much more dramatic <> placing the scene higher on the page and having the boys eyes just above or below the globe would give this much more impact

    Hey man, really nice imagination going on, you are laying down some really bnice concepts, and thats crucial, cause it's the bit htat can't be taught.

    When painting, Form is the most crucial principle, much more than line, make sure you've assessed the light and dark side of all the objects in the scene, this will really help it too look solid.

    Tight pencils though, and good variety of media, keep on experimenting, keep on drawing from life.
    Sweet work.

    The Layout is fine and you are definitely improving your most recent posts have been pretty big jumps from when you first started. And keep up those sillhouete drawings they will only help you. Its something i need to be doing as well. Keep drawing!

    You're getting much better with each post. You should do some gesture drawing to loosen up your characters a bit. They come off looking more like statues than people in motion.

    Bite size pieces....

    Went to the beach today, didnt do any life drawing, but managed to pick up a burn...Here's another lil update to tickle your fancy.

    Here's some random dragon heads...not necessarily your typical dragons mind you.
    Brall. 10.4.2006

    Here's a digital peice I'm pretty iffy about, there's some things I like about it, but on the whole I'd have to say it needs a overhaul.
    Brall. 10.4.2006

    Next are some sketches of characters from George R.R. Martins, "A Song of Ice and Fire" series. I introduced Tyrion Lannister a few posts back, but for continuity sake here he is again.
    Brall. 10.4.2006

    Then we have Jon Snow a brother of the Nights Watch.
    Brall. 10.4.2006

    And Brienne the maid of Tarth.
    Brall. 10.4.2006

    And here is my initial rendition of this settings giants...
    Brall. 10.4.2006

    Which then turned into this after I revised it. I realized that I did not like the initial design and it really did not portray what I had going on in my head...this does a better job I think.
    Brall. 10.4.2006

    Thanks for taking the time to look, come back for more!

    Edit: Oh and here is an update on that painting I've been slowly going at.

    Small update

    Just a small update to keep my space current. Decided to break out the staedtlers...ahh ink.

    I'm happy with how this turned out, it kinda made me want to work with ink more often again.
