    Hey Evxyza,

    You are off to a nice start here, I can see you have quite an imagination going here but to show your idea's off better you have alot of work ahead of you. The thing I would suggest first is buying some book on anatomy and face proportions (the books from Andrew Loomis would be a great start) and just copying and understanding them.

    This will ofcourse take alot of time and dedication but it will pay off.

    Good luck with everything!

    Putting the FUN in FORUM!.... wait...

    thanks for dropping by my sketchbook. It's good to see that you're enthusiastic to draw, but you need to practice frmo life before you can accurately draw things frmo your mind. I would suggest that you start drawing frmo life immediately. go to a park and just draw what you see. An easy way to do this is to keep a small sketchbook with you at all times. Whenever you have a spare 15 min just pull it out and get something down. The more you practice the better you'll get. If you'd like to start drawing people, draw from reference, people in real life preferably. Your current drawings are lacking correct proporions, and mostly all have stiff boring poses. The exception being your dual wielding samurai, his posing is pretty dynamic. If you practice daily (aim for an hour) you'll start to see improvement! Good luck.


    head proportions like you wanted
    more heads at angles
    heads
    more heads

    if you want similar ref, do a google search for loomis anatomy, first link has tons of resources.

    I would suggest saving up some money and buying a bridgeman or hogarth figure book. Not only are they useful for the most beginning of beginners but they will continue to help you for the rest of your life in most cases I would suggest just drawing figure after figure, maybe take a class at a community college or at your school for figure~* That recent profile is a big improvement from the one yesterday, good start I hope to see more.

    One thing I noticed is that you seem to have a decent understanding of anatomy, you just bury it under big 'fill in the blank' shading. Try shading slower with smaller strokes. The second portrait there looks closer to this, although you're still doing a big general gray-over on the back of the head. Her eye is a little too high and long. Seen from the side, eyes are squatter than that. Her lips are also a little long. Especially with the line at the corner of her mouth, it looks like she's pulling her lips back like a frog or something.

    With your smaller full-figure drawing, have you tried drawing a framework before clothing and rendering them? A loose skeletal system of shapes: Ovals for the head, chest, and pelvis, lines for the arms and legs. Because from the lizard-dude and the profiles, it seems like you have a good idea of how muscles and bones fit together. It's just not very evident in the smaller drawings.

    Keep it up, and happy drawing!

    The portrait has the same problems as your previous one. The body kind of looks like a Barbie doll: overly small waist, and boobs are pretty much always lower than that, unless she's actually flat-chested and wearing some kind of combination water/stuffed/pushup thing.

    Maybe try studying one specific part of the face or body? Drawing JUST a nose or eye, or JUST someone's arm? But take just as much time (or more) than if you were doing one of your current portraits. Really try to get everything right!

    I'm not too clear on your animosity about books/study. How are you referencing your current drawings? Drawing from life can be good, but books are still indispensable for the information on how to see and measure something for an accurate picture. Maybe people wouldn't keep bringing it up if you posted a little less often? I don't mean offense though! It's just that very rarely will people have something new to say on two similar drawings a day apart. You're posting over 2 drawings a day right now. Maybe cut back to only posting stuff you felt was a visible improvement over a previous post or when you attempt someone's suggestion.

    (Don't shoot me! )

    you have some nice starting points, look at the human facial features in more detail to help with ur proporting of the eyes and the lips.

    look at the deatil of the eyes and it will help give your facial drawings a more realisic look try and do some full face views it'll help u proportion things a little better then try the side views again but a lovely starting points keep up the good work add colour to some of ur drawings too to help show whats going on in the images so the viewer has a more clear idea of whats going on

    Yozz man..
    U got the imagination in ur pencil tips. somehow, what u lack is a proper anatomy studies(Like me do).

    Dun look down on anatomy studies(I used to be... i am studying now oso), put more hardwork & study in dat lesson. Later on, mixes up ur design & concept wif ur understanding anatomy.

    I bet ur drawing goin to take a big major leaps~!.

    the spirit is going on here.. !
