I decided to give this a try, I hope this gives me the extra push to keep drawing, and evolve.
I'll just post the pics now, any advice and comments are very mutch appreciated.
I like them, nice work m8.
Cool sketches man, i really like the black spiderman kicking butt, also good studies seems you have the muscles down.

Back to the ol' sketchbook
Most recent sketchbook
And as I make my third post, I already have failed in updating daily, I try to use making a comic book as an excuse, but noone believes me.
I watched a documentary about this two australian guys freediving with sharks, even the great white (freediving, so no cage was used), and made a sketch about it, a wonderful ducumentary that was...
I finally tried some digital painting, please advice as I have no idea what I'm doing. I am a complete beginner with digital painting and colours.
I tried to show all the phases of the work so you (someone... anyone) could easily pinpoint the biggest mistakes.
Please comment, anything
hey dude. those loomis studies are cool, keep doing those + i suggest some drawing from life. this should make u improve at lightspeed. Keep it up!
Thanks Kicek, nice of you to complement us mere mortals (I saw your sketchbook). No seriously, thanks for the advice. I have always hated drawing from life, but I think now its time to dumb that hatred.
More Loomis. Studying Figure Draw For All It's Worth at the moment, great stuff
wow.. your anatomy has improved.. :3
but with your recent peice... i see its moving quite well.. i love how you colored the tree
my only peeve with the peice is that i noticed the body is a bit out of porportion..mostly with her head.. but maybe its a bit to long.. but i see.. keep on going with your peice :3
i think your gonna learn alot ^_^
hope to see more stuff from you
Female anatomy today, or not correct kind a way anatomy... I was just thinking that if I want to be a comic artist, I have to master drawing sexy women. So I was studying what makes certain women look sexy.
I don't know if I succeeded, but I learned something I guess.
One thing I was thinking was the jaw, usually women that are supposed to look atractive, have a pointy jaw. But I sometimes notice really beautiful women with a wide jaw.
Pffff. plah plah, like I would know anything about what I'm doing
here are the pics, :
hey jho.. youre doing good! its the correct placement of the features that make a face look "sexy". A girls face with a pointy chin can be as beautiful as a girls face with a manlike chin... as long as its all well placed.. in fact every girls face is beautiful, isnt it ? Keep on keeping on and watch them proportions.
ooooh *glomps you*
bravo on the perspective.. but on the picture above you..watch how you draw the features on the head
how long did it take you to do the perspective picture..and do you understand how to do it now
^^;; i just started studying it again...well good luck.. i hope to see more
A few new.
Could someone tell me where I'm standing?
I mean, I don't really have a clue, wether I'm ready to start sending out samples to Marvel, White wolf etc. Or in desperate need of studying, before I can even dream of something like that.
I have never studied art, so Internet is the only place where I see other peoples work, and it seems I'm far behind.
But I'd still like to know wether I stand a change to work as a concept artist or an illustartor with my current skills, and if not, what do I mostly have to consentrate on.
wow... the faces you drew have so much personailty so many characters..
did you use reference..or was it from imagination.
thank you for the mini perspective tutorial you gave me. i actually understood it... ^_^ i saved it.. so im gonna do a picture using that tutorial...
currently im studying one point ^_^. its not too bad ^_^
but thank you for your help
Skill wise I'd say you're an advanced beginner(I consider myself the same), you have some skill but aren't ready to start sending stuff away to comics to work professionally. You need more time to develop a personal visual language. Work on line, construction, proportion and anatomy, and design.
For example in this http://karetar.net/luonnokset/32.gif, the woman looks bigger than the monster guy. Her proportions are wrong, her thorax appears bigger than her hips. Her lines are round, then the monster's are rounder, should give him more angular lines to emphasize solidity and manliness.
A woman's attractiveness is gotten by the proportions of her face in respect to the ideal, smallness/delicacy of her features, and the symetry of her features. The ideal is the thirds and other divisions of the head, the canons of proportion that started with the Greeks. Small deviations from the ideal result in character, the girl could be quirky but cute. Too many deviations results in ugliness. You tend to make the middle or bottom third too long. Also emphasize roundness and obliquity in woman, their features tend to be organized by diagonal lines. Men tend toward perpendicular lines, the cross or crucifix being the manliest symbol there is.
