    try making the lines in your contour drawings longer and continuous... try to leave your pencil on the paper as you draw and never pick it up... and don't forget to remember to focus on the object you are contouring and not the paper.

    and when shading things details always help... adding crevasses (sp?) in the hand and skin make it that much more realistic... right now this: http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1162055621

    looks very flat at the moment, try adding some more shading on the fingers and palm, it'll look that much better.

    I like your stuff, keep on drawing... :3 ill be sure to post here as you get more images up.

    It is true that the lines break up, but It was one long stroke for the contour drawing. My hand came up here and there, I was using ink. This seems to happen to me more when I use a pen than with a pencil. dunno why.

    Thanks, it was supposed to be just a coloring practice to see how well I could do skintone, but I may finish it as a piece...

    Thanks much for the support. =)

    i probably know one reason the contour may have done that, since you were using a pen, you may have applied different pressure in different areas much like you would if you were using a pencil... sometimes if a pen is as too low of a pressure the ink tends to 'stick' against the rolling ball and not flow as easily or sometimes not flow at all.

    and your welcome

    That may be it. The pencil is just much steadier.

    Kk, took your advice and tried adding some folds in a few places, better?
    I also added a gradient map with a Hard Light setting to make the colors better.

    Hey guys, I've uploaded a few of my own unique way of studying anatomy, lol, while having fun at the same time. I play Super Smash Bros Melee a lot, (I'm also pretty good at it) And some of the moves when paused provide good positions that would be impossible for humans to hold in life, so I just pause and draw while playing. The first is of Marth, a Fire Emblem character doing his up smash move. The second is of Sheik, doing her back kick while in the air. (In the smash community we call it a 'Bair', back air)

    Very sketchy, just wanted to get the general positions down.

    A quickie acrylic painting I did. I'm assuming everything we do in here doesn't have to be from a sketchbook.

    Oh well. Christmas will soon arrive, I'll just treat myself then.

    Did this in about 45 minutes, but I may still render it more...make the shadows smoother...
