    CONAN smells distinctly like rotting fruit

    Hey guys, thought I'd make a sketchbook too. I'm out of practice and need to brush off the rust and improve.

    CC welcome, I'm relatively thick in the head at times. (My record is taking 3 years to understand one particular crit before, but I got there eventually.) So yeah, help is appreciated.

    My aim is to get stuff up weekly, and get better. Eventually.

    First post a page from my SB. I hate cords.


    CONAN smells distinctly like rotting fruit



    The cherry is actually on page 3.

    Cool deal. I always like to see animal studies. The girl's face on the first page looks a little off, the jaw line is over way too far. I tend to do that sometimes, too. Other than that I think you've got some fun ideas going on here.

    I guess I should do my SSG duties and rip you a new one eh? I love the horse pic, very lovely rendering. You seem to have a very strong handle on animals. What else do you know? Show me something more

    Looking good so far, theres some good control of line and form, the animals are looking good, they are a difficult area to do, especially horses, but yours are looking good. Keep up the good work ya sausage.

    great stuff. But like Saikin said i wanna see more. You have a great handle on your lines and anatomy of animals and things. What about forshortening. lets see some wild images of rearing horses and leaping jaguars or a person flying right at you or something.

    Those horses look really good. That last one looks abit off. Like there is some balance issue. Anyway, wish there was more to see; but a good start!

    RSloan - Thanks, yeah I was going for a fairly square jaw on her but maybe a wee bit too square.

    Guitarjames - Hey you're right. I need to watch eye size on her. As for the old man, the ref photo had his eyes in complete shadow.

    Ewing, Saikin - thanks! I'll try to get more up, I think I spend too little time on my SB.

    Prophet - Sausage. Hey that made my day! I've never called a sausage before.

    Sweetoblivion314 - Ya caught me out. I need to do more action poses. I tend to get stuck doing calm pics.

    Masterpug - Yeah I noticed it too afterwards. Either her human half is too big for the animal part or she's leaning forwar too much for her center of gravity. Either way it looks ungainly.


    Well only two pages today I'm afraid. Sweetoblivion314, I did the jumping puma today just for you lol. (The ref pic didnt have back legs visible damnit.)

    Yo!
    Hey Cwn, very fine contours.
    Hands are letting you down though, also try some more shading. Great work though.
