"Your drawing, is now awesomely horrendous. It's so bad, it's good! Godly. Epic."

The old post.
first off, Thank you for taking time off of your busy life, to look and see my sketches, drawings, stuff like that.
This is place is so imaginative, full of uber-super talented people, that, it makes me cry to think how long it's gonna take me to get to their level...pld:
I didn't flesh out the cylinder-ness of the front of the train...and that's why it's a little awkward
One of my WORST pics ever...so messy, and just...ugh.
So this is probably not the best, and not the worst. I still have a looong way to go, and I'm hoping most of the people here can help me on my stuff, and again, thank you guys for taking your time.q

\\kool-ka-lang's sketchbook// Leveling up one day at a time.(5/9/07)
I need criticism. I can't get a good crit from any of my friends, because they're all always like... and I'm like...eh....hehe, thanks, but I know It could be better. way better. (like, I mean, compared to ordinary people, I might be better, but I'm trying to level up my skills...of course, compared to you guys, my stuff pales in comparison, but anywho, that's why I''m here, to get your feedback.
So if you can, comment on at least 2 pics, anything.
This is only one half of the stuff I've done since those pics in the first post. next batch will be coming soon.

You should update more, its a good incentive to try and keep pushing yourself.
So what do you like to draw most? =)

Hey man, I thought I would stop by and throw in my two cents, so here we go:
Good Stuff: You have a very expressive and bold sketching style. This helps to communicate expression and generally gives a nice gestural feel to your images. Also, once you start to focus on learning anatomy, it will help with gesture drawing.
You have a wide range of subjects that you explore. This is a great way to practice various techniques and to get a general feel for drawing. It will also help you to become a well-rounded artist cabable of creating many different types of images.
You are exploring various media, both traditional and digital. Like drawing many different subjects, using various media can really help to loosen up the creative process and prevent you from getting burnt out on one thing.
Not So Good Stuff: You need to draw more. In fact, if you want to get better and are aiming for a professional level, you will need to draw everyday. Your anatomy is very weak. I know that anime is fun to draw (I do it myself) but the fact of the matter is, it's a horrible way to learn the human form. You need to be drawing from life. If you are in school, bring your sketchbook with you and draw your class mates. Sit at the local coffee shop, diner, etc. and sketch the people around you. Draw your friends, family, anyone you can look at. Make sure to do it everyday. It's the best way to get better more quickly.
You might want to pick up a book or two. If funds are limited you can rent books from your local library. One that I would recommend is "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain" by Betty Edwards. It will help you to get into the mindset that facilitates drawing what you actually see, instead of what you think something should look like.
Anatomy is pretty much what I would focus on at this point. You have a lot of creative energy and I think you should continue to allow that free reign. In addition though, you will have to get serious about drawing people if your goal is to become a better artist. Once you get some more people sketches up, I'll be happy to offer more advice.
Good luck man, you have a good start! Keep going, I'll be waitng to see your next post!

thanks for the comments guys, appreciate it.
aph:I guess I like drawing a bit of everything. I never stay on one subject for too long.
Grendal Grack: just what I needed. Yes, I do need to draw more. I'm on spring break right now, so maybe I could draw some stuffs this week.(But I need to catch up on sleep first...)
About the anime stuff...yeah, I do realize that the anime/manga hampered my progress, but thankfully, I'm past it, and now I can move on.
Yeah, I do draw in class, (including art class). I've had some "Interesting" situations with me drawing somebody else's back...
Funny thing is, that book is partly the reason why I started drawing. My mom had that book, and it was the reaaalllly old version. (like, 70's to 80's old.) I was really interested in why some people are so good at drawing, and others are so insecure about it. so I started reading it, and that's when i got more into drawing.
And I do think I need to work on anatomy. and a whole bunch of other things. shade, form, perspective, and colour (I didn't even THINK about colour till a few months ago...). But I need to tackle it one at a time. so, actually, I do think I'm getting better, bit by little bit, and someday, I'll be THERE.
and thanks for the creative energy part--I'm trying to desperately distance myself from the days when all the people I was drawing where just standing there...actually, the first 2 pics in THIS thread are from that era in my drawings, when I was too focused on detail, rather than form.
I actually have 6 of the loomis pdfs, (got it from a friend through aim, is that all of them ? ) and I've read through most all of it::I just need to actually do the work now.

From looking at your sketches I couldn't tell if you put in any guidelines and shapes under your final lines, but from hearing the first comment about the train I'm guessing that you don't (at least not all the time).
Most pro's still lay in the basic shapes, circles, perspective lines etc before they get to the details. A solid base or skeleton will do half of the work in making a picture work, a bad foundation will destroy the whole image. For a really good example of this find Staz Johnson's (hope that's right) Comics thread in the Finished Section - look at his Judge Dredd pic, looks fantastic and then look at alll the steps used to get there.
... and just draw more, from life, from ref and from GOOD anatomy books. Most people recommend Bridgeman and Loomis, myself I like Loomis.
And last but not least - have fun!

SEVANS-yeah, I didn't use guidelines before, but now, I'm trying to put guidelines on stuff. I did those 2 pics before I was 'enlightened' on tha t topic.
sorry for the bad camera, a friend borrowed my scanner.
These are some skulls referenced from the study anatomy group, they have a bunch of skull pics there, so i decided to try 'em.
are they too big? do I need to resize the pic a bit?
