    [How I learned to stop worrying and love to draw] 12/21 Comic and promo work

    Hello! I've seen how much everyone improves after starting one of these, so now, here is my sketchbook. I'm trying to become an animator, so I'm always working further to develop my own cartoonish style that's very expressive.

    I have a few charcoal life drawing sketches and I should have some more this weekend after another session

    Please, any feedback at all is most welcome!



    And now, to make my sketchbook even better....LENS FLARES!



    Because lens flares make everything better

    //edit// most everything new is on page 2 and past. Alot of links are broken because i lost my old domain :0 apologies!

    //edit// 4.21.09 Three years and even though I've improve a ton, it's no where near enough for how long I've been here. Really self-ass-kicking work starts and page 4 and shouldn't stop!

Hey chiko! nice sketchbook !
I only have one advice, and that is , put the Anime work away and start
working on basic
proporations, shapes and perspectives!
Drawing 1 really lacking of Anatomy! and thats because of
the anime that im assumeing you been drawing from!

Those faces are good but its not hard to see you
have been alittle inspired by anime, once again going to hurt
your drawing skills!

Those portaits are ALOT better! since they dont seem
to be based on any anime! Im just telling you what I think looking good
However, I want to see more lifedrawings!
Especially if they have the same quality as the last portraits!

Keep it up

~Dile




Edit** ouch, missed your newest update! Sweet! They are really what I wanted to see by my last sentence
You got the anatomy better, also the structure!

    Oy Chiko, lookin' good thus far. I'd give you the standard DRAW FROM LIFE jaw, but it seems you're doing that, too, so just keep it up! It can be hard to find a balance between doing what you like and doing what you need to do to really improve by those leaps and bounds. Also, don't be afraid to grab an anatomy book and just copy down pictures of bone and muscle structure. It'll give you a great fast track to seeing how they work with the human form.

    been away for a bit, was busy with work stuff. Glad to be practicing again. Did some muscle studies. I worked some more on the male figure since I have more trouble drawing males then I do females

    More sketches today! just faces...since I really want to get good at expressive faces.
    I also have big problems with old people, so I make myself draw an old man.

    Heyo, returning the favour so far so good, these threads are definatly a good motivator, but the improvement comes from the hardwork that you ultimately have to put in, regardless of the thread. Try bust out more anatomy work, its good to see some, and also do some regular drawing from life, no matter how boring you may initially find it- it will help so much!. Try and do the muscle studies without rendering, which will really focus you on the forms. keep it up!

    I really like the girly scowl. Got feeling. In the "finger biting" the hand seems kinda off. Gotta side with Spade ´n Dile. More Life drawing (look who´s talking )

    The old man comes off quit good, the guy with mad cow disease got the eyes not far enuff apart.

    The little chibby with the glasse...that you contemplating anatomy ´n going nuts over it? Hilarious. Georgeous. y´should make it yer avatar.
    A tutor once said to me: "Let your mind go!" and it didn´t come back.

    Aaaand Zack Braff from Garden State ! I try and draw celbrities sometimes and see if people know who they are, so I can tell if I have a likeness down or not.
