    Showcase of apathy!

    Hello, all!

    I'm new to these forums and have seen some amazing stuff here. I've let my own meager talents atrophy in laziness and hope that a good dose of critisism will save my soul. I currently animate those crappy lasershows that you might see around the U.S., which means I make a few half-ass drawings and use a program to move/rotate/scale them. It's a job for a trained monkey. Anywho, here's to kicking Art's ass and moving on up in the world.

    Here's me making myself look much more attractive than I am. I'm aware of some of the proportions I got wrong, but could use some advice.

    Please, let me know what you think, and I'll be sure to post often. Thanks!

    Um, honestly, I think you look more attractive in the real picture. Drawing beard stubbles that detailed makes you look lazy. -_- Try a simple shading with the pencil instead, maybe use the flat side of it to put darker tones where the stubbles are. Also, when you mark the border between highlighted areas and areas in shadow, don't let the lines show.
    Anyway, the similarity is indeed there.

    Your hand studies are pretty nice; do more of those! And the whale caricatures are cute. Nice going!

    Hahaha! The doodles are funny! Your self portrait is pretty well done, although a bit caricatural... Is that your hand? It looks like child's one ... maybe you should have made thinner fingers and longer palm... Want to see more.

    Keenox: I can't believe you would make fun of someone with handicapping child hands! Do you know how difficult it is to draw with these things?
    JaneM: Yes I am quite handsome, aren't I? I do realize that I tend to think very 2D and seperate everything into just a few levels of tone. Thanks!

    I was thinking of posting some animations if I ever wind up doing something decent. What's the best way to do that here, just posting an offsite link to a Flash movie or something?

    I intend to post the hell out of this sketchbook, so stay tuned for progress!

    Here's a few more. I really need to start working on toned paper. I should also say that I virtually never finish a project... that's part of the reason for posting here. I'm going to start studying anatomy more, working on my tones, and once I get my drawing techinques under control I can move on to painting. So please, crit away!

    Sorry man! I didn't mean to offence you in any way. I didn;t know you have a problem... I'm really sorry! I thought it was just a drawing problem. The newly posted drawings are really nice. Maybe you should try coloring them!

    Keenox: No offense taken, I actually have lovely man-hands. I'll do some more hand drawings soon and try to correct the stumpiness.

    Here's a few older sketches:

    I tend to be all over the place when it comes to self portraits. It's hard for me to get a solid objective idea of what I look like.

    Here's a wood cut I did a while ago.

    I'll be back with more...

    Hey anticonnor! (wich connor is it that you dislike? )

    Great start on your sb man, and thanks for commenting mine.
    Most of these are really cool, you seem to have pretty nice control of faces when you draw. I guess you could practice shadows and rendering tho, to increase the volume of your figures and shapes. Try basic shapes and mark out a light source and render away! it's fun, easy and great practise.
    other than that, keep posting, I'm watching!

    the guy with the glasses on this one is great ^^

    Just a quick update... I'm going to be busy for a while, so I don't know if I'll get a chance to post here again for a couple of weeks. I am working on a 3CH painting... it'll be my first Painter attempt. It's coming along nicely. I don't have much experience with backgrounds, so that's a bit of a challenge. Everyone's tips on shading are much appreciated, and much needed! Here you go...

    Things have been a little busy around here, haven't had a lot of time for drawing.

    Here's a few characters and a sketch for a 3CH contest being voted on "A legless satyr communicates with a frog in fragments of glasses" . I didn't like how some of the characters were turning out, so I didn't include them. This project is my first attemp at Painter/tablet drawing.

    This new attachment manager is pretty handy! I'll try to post some more in the next week, but it won't be until after the 4th of July that I can start seriously pumping out some new material and delving into Painter some more.
