    Whoa... I'm liking! I'm seeing a progressive trend toward better work which means you are training yourself right. #1 in Post 59. Good execution of warm and cold complimentary colors!

    Welcome to our lil sketch group!
    I hope you will update more often from now on
    I can see a steady progress from the start of your sketchbook.

    The points I would suggest to study in priority are: volume and dynamics.
    Volume:
    Start with shapes simpler than the human body, under different lightings.
    Practicing some clay modeling could help a lot too.
    Dynamics:
    Draw tons of very loose sketches of bodies in movement, exaggerate them.
    Train your eye to tell if they are believable.

    Waiting for your next update to chime in again!

    Thanks SSG!

    Thanks for the comments. I agree gesture is a weak point for me. And yes I have been very lazy with the scanner. But I have a good excuse. I was in Bobby Chiu's Digital Painting class via schoolism.com for 14 weeks which took up all of my spare time outside of work. I also was preparing for my wedding which just happend 10/25. The last month before my wedding was a nightmare, but worth it.

    So it is back on track for me and that is why I wanted to join a SSG to help with crits etc.

    Thanks again SSG peeps! Will update tomorrow for my first day on the SSG job. hehe

    SSG WIP #1 War Elf Pencils

    Goal: Add a battle beast and some environmental elements with the character. Take all the way to finished digital painting.

    I am going to take my time and post updates as I go to get feedback from my SSG buds or anyone else that can help. I am going to redraw him several times to work on the things I need to learn like gesture, anatomy, and form.

    Thanks for your time.

    SSG, what is our official name and link that we should have in our signature?

    Eh, we updated at the same time. That's coordinated SSG work force
    First crit is the character's feet: I can't tell if he's about to side step or if he's standing still and fast.
    Outlining the beast you plan to add would help understanding if the character is interacting with it, it may explain the pose better.
    The double outline on the shoulders is for the armor? If so, the shoulders proper seem a bit thin at the joint with the trunk.
    There's those muscles over the chest up to the arm bone that seem missing.
    The armor/suit itself looks interesting, simple and efficient.
    Maybe post several loose sketches with the beast?

    About the ssg name, well, I don't know
    I've put one in my sig, waiting for reactions. ^^

    EDIT: I see you hosted your sketch on your server instead of attaching it.
    I'm afraid it may do wrong to your sketchbook when you reorganize your server.

    The only things that leap out to me at the moment are that his right arm is too long and the way his feet are pointing inward. People generally only stand like that if they're either pigeon toed, or they have to pee. It also makes him look sort of timid and non-tough.

    Keep up the good work on your studies. Your diligence will pay off.

    (BTW: your plant blob monster in post #35 reminds me of The Creeping Terror )

    Hey Wheezy, welcome to our little SSG!
    I can't really post anything that has been unsaid, but why don't you join me on checking out some anatomy and such? I'm trying to improve my proportions and such also.
    At the moment it seems like you either need to try use references more, or as suggested, do some gestures. What about trying out some life drawing?

    You seem to have more problems with legs, feet, and hands than the rest. Try concentrating on those areas and observing. Perhaps next time try refine the problem areas before getting distracted with costume/detail etc.

    Keep it up, like Zweit says, it will pay off =)

    That sounds like a plan to me Volchiha! I have been bad about not using a reference lately. I need to get back into using them so that as I practice more I can have a more confident line without them. Legs are for sure a weakness of mine.

    Hey man, great work so far, there's a lot of fun stuff going on in here. As many others have said before me, I'd like to see some more studies ^^ I see you have hands on your list of things to work on, and I'd like to suggest that heads and portraits be added to that. If your character has a believable face with a lot of character, it can do wonders for your img as a whole. Often viewers will be drawn to looking at the face first and it's also often a key element in the img. So get to work on them now while the night is young Other than that, keep up the good work and always strive to improve over your previous works. Good luck and god speed!

    hey dude,
    I see you're improving with each drawing I say just keep cranking them out.
    this one's cool: http://www.charlieharper.net/images/...hesearcher.jpg
    your shading is better. Clean up your lines though.

    Thanks wilkerson!

    Yeah I need to be more patient and take the time to take a kneaded eraser to my drawing and go back in to make the lines stronger. I always admire how clean a lot of artists on here present their sketches.

    I plan on doing some studies this weekend with this new way I am drawing. I am starting off a lot more loose and not worrying with stick figures anymore and and I think I am getting better results because I am not tying myself to that stick framework. However, bringing the image out of all my scribbles is not very neat and I really want to put the exact thing from my mind on paper I need to practice doing so.

    I will be painting the Goblin Gunslinger CHOW this weekend too.

    I agree with Wilkerson: the Searcher is very interesting.
    Intriguing design, and a very natural dynamic attitude.
    His left arm and hand (on our right) need serious rework though.
    I like the cartoon style of South and the ChoW.
    I think the latter's ears are rooted too high though even for a cartoon.
    Thugish, being more realistic, can't have as much freedom as in a cartoon,
    and it seems somewhat too stiff (and short-armed).
    Keep posting!
