your hand drawings are really good, better than what i usually do in terms of gestural drawing. i tend to tighten up my drawings too much.
you got some good stuff, I looked at your full sb and your progression is steady.
with the face I find breaking it in to four sctions the last one tillts with the skull. a dot unter the chin, dot under the noise a dot on the brow line and a line for the forhead then the nex dot hangs and represents where the crown of the head is.
I'm going to post a how to on my sb soon
Esp. like that one: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1206768659
You should watch his hands - the right one (his left) is slightly touching his leg, and thats looking unnatural. would be better if it would overlay the leg, then you would clearly see depth in the drawing. additionally you could give the hand in front stronger strokes than the one in the back.
Where is the separation betw. neck and chest?
keep slapping that anatomy where it hurts mate. Try and get your main muscle lines flowing into each other and check out bridgemans anatomy books to see which bone they connect to, it makes it soo much more easier to figure out exactly where a bicep would extrude from under the shoulder and so forth. I aint got it down yet, but am learning a lot from studying that way. Keep at it.
Holy shit, this is all awesome! I'm just browsing through and being quite amazed at how good looking these drawings are. The hand studies are damn, damn good. That woman's hair is really accurate too.
I like the creature designs, especially this one. The last creature on the left is sweet, although I think the legs are too small. Could the right arm come down a little as well?
And are they from Spiderman? I just recognize Venom, if it's him.
REGNIRUTH: Thanks dude. Keep it loose.
Flaskpost: Yeah I definitely still need to concentrate on lines. I focused on improving lines for awhile before and I did.
ShaunLey: Thanks for taking the time to look through my SB. Look forward to seeing yours!
Pascallo: Thanks man. Gotta watch out for those tangents, yes. They get you when you least expect it.
I just tried to cheat the anatomy in that one, as I was trying to get the concept down.
Saturns Gate: I studied a bit of Bridgeman, think they're on the previous page, but I should get back into them. Thanks.
Ananda: Hey, easy with the asspats.
Yeah, that guy is half venom, it's the other half you gotta guess.
More doodle dumps.
First one is my attempt at some digital quill pen inking emulation, using a brush I made.
Is it Sandman?Yeah, that guy is half venom, it's the other half you gotta guess.
The first drawing - Shouldn't the shading get darker when it's further from the lightsource? Just noticed her right limbs (left side) are darker at the point where the light falls off, then get slightly lighter. Or is it just the secondary lightsource? Like light reflecting off a wall? Maybe I'm just nitpicking, I can't find anything else to crit on.
The last page on the left has a female figure that looks like she has a man's head.
Is it alright that I put your link in my sig by the way? Do I need to be an official part of your SSG?
hi there! u are still busy drawing i see, great! what strikes me is that some of ur pencil sketches, where u go really far, and show a lot of patience are great! but most of the times u cant bring on the patience, or just dont feel like it. Is good as well, u cant finish all stuff, but i just wanted to say that i fell in love with those finished things!
edit: i was a bit lazy yesterday by not mentioning the actual works i meant. What i meant was the things in post 131, and the robot in post 154. that kind of stuff. Great rendering,ur best work so far, i would like to see more of that!

nonie: Thanks. I will keep at it.
Max Challie: No it's not Sandman either.
I replied in your SB with an answer about rendering.
ajvenema: Thanks man. I definitely need to work on finishing more art.
The Barret sniper rifle's a WIP study, but dunno if I'm gonna finish it (oh the hypocrisy!) , I started getting a bit sloppy with it towards the end, and the scope has way too much detail for me.

Those hands and recent page of people studies are nice - its great when quick drawings come together without spending a lot of foundational guides...makes you think your eye is working!
The perspective on that rifle above looks nice, I hope to see that one finished. If you are going to leave some paint strokes in there (and not blend it all out softly) you should pick a more uniform type of stroke - there is currently a variety in there...but thats minor in the big scheme of things!
