Another photo dump today.
Doodles page and trying to plan out a piece.
One of the next pieces I hope to get done soon. I need critiques on the sketch before I go any further. Basically it's two teens playing cards in a room full of nifty things Any critiques on perspective, anatomy, poop?
Another piece that I hope to get some critique on before going further. I need to work on the position of the face, head, and leegs+feet. I'm trying to show the couple in a relaxed position against the wall.
Er really crappy speed paint done in about 15 minutes....this is my first one since I'm really horrible at them and im afraid to do them

Keep pushing what it is you think your work can do. As for me my figure drawing stuidies are over 18 classes, so keep at it, it took 10 before I had confidence enough to post here. So your ahead of the game....
Check out bob -- schultzdrawings.com -- he was my teacher.
I think these two are the best sketches in the SB, I think you captured the form pretty well and they just look good.

Hey chiko, you have some really cool stuff here, I like the loose style. The one with the fart is hillarious, I'm curious what possessed you to draw that one?
Like the comment above, I'm also interested in seeing something more detailed and combined with a background. Take care!
N1va- hahah it was just the pose the model was in, and I felt silly. Thanks, I'm working on some stuff with better backgrounds...need to work on those...
Anyway here's some stuff I did today.
Cloth study. Something I need alot of practice with.
copying Walt Disney's famous self portrait. I mean...who DOESN'T want to be pyramid head? I hope I did an ok job painting it in painter
Thanks for checkin out my sketchbook, Chiko. I'm a huge anime/manga fan myself so I've been enjoying seeing your work starting to bridge the gap between that and life drawing. The frequency that you're cranking this stuff out makes me think about how much more I should be drawing :p I don't want to force it though otherwise it's no fun!
The only critique I'd have on your stuff so far is get darker! Don't be afraid to let your darks really work themselves through. If you're having trouble with it, move to a softer lead pencil and force it in there. You could even try to work wtih charcole. In my drawing 1 class that's the only medium we were allowed to work with, and it really helped out a lot (messy though it may be ). Feel the light!
Hey, cool stuff. If you want a really defined style - don't try to have one. You have your own style no matter what you think, and your style will only become further defined as you can draw from life more accurately. So keep up the focus on realistic drawing and don't worry about differentiating yourself so much - it will come before you know it .
thanks for the advice tigastyle and fishspawn!
I've done some more stuff recently here we go:
Um...so I was doing a sort of speed paint in painter and it turned into this a few hours later. I'm actuall quite happy with the lower part of her face, but the eyes really bother me, anyone has crits? Yes I made the eyes violet because it's one of the rarest eye colors and it's really pretty
hopefully the new layout for my site. I just threw some color in there, but I'm happy with the lineart.
oh like you don't want to just get naked and read under a tree :3
I like this one alot, still needs work thou
As usual, and critiques are moooooooooooore then welcome
Hi. i thought i'd return your post with a post and cheque out your sketchbook. u have some good stuff going on here, your figure drawings are the strongest, keep those up for sure. also, i really like this one too : (http://www.kawaiichiko.com/doodles/s...etchbook12.jpg) you said you were practicing faces, and i think u nailed that one. it isn't overworked or underworked, looks great to me. anyway, keep it up.

Hi, was just checking back, looks like you made some updates. Is that a boy or a girl in the last painting?
I want more detail, your figures are good tho. Keep them coming!
Hello again everyone! Been a bit busy but here are some of my latest sketches.
Some concepts I was planning out for a character to be modeled in 3D. Trying to get proportions right.
A new piece I want to start, It's going to be a girl slouching in a throne, I don't know if I have the pose right or not.
Drawing random people in a bookstore :3 trying to practice from life.
Hey cool stuff in this newest update. I think doing stuff like those quick studies in the bookstore will help tremendously, do lots an' lots of those. I remember staying in the VCU student commons for hours drawing people studying/sleeping/being idiots. For someone looking to do more cartoon/anime-ish stuff, it'll increase your visual vocabulary. Meaning you'll have more experience to draw from, more ways of thinking how a hand or eye looks, or whatever. Lots good hard work goin on here, keep it up.
I see a lot of progressing in here! Drawing people from life is good practice, and I really liked the bookstore page, do some more! keep it up, you are doing fine!
