    :: BlackBeret ::

    Wow, I just have to start by saying that a lot of the artist here look very talented. I'm really looking forward to any help that you guys can help me. So I guess that goes to say I'm not all that good . Though I try to draw everyday and love doing it. So hopefully with your guys help I can get better and better. Also if I'm breaking any rules or somthing please let me know. I tried reading them but they really only appeared to be a couple of sentences long so I'm not sure if it was the right thing or not.

    Anyways I'm going to start this out with a rose I did awhile back. This is probably one of my better works. I uassly just do comic book chars and stuff. I have some still life stuff but I really need to get into real life anatomy and stuff. So any tips or suggestions would be great. Thanks

    I've been having trouble with the female anatomy so I decided to do bat girl as an excuse to practice. Any sugestions or tips on how to improve the anatomy would be great.

    I did this mainly just to practice the face and features. Just added the whole Dhalism thing later. So Any comments on face structure and all that would be great.

    Lol, yeah I got that also. I've used that a couple of time for the human head and stuff. I have yet to look at any parts that talk about the rest of the body.

    Just doing some more practice. Top one is a shoulder and some kids face and second is a turkey or chicken. I never really knew if there was a difference. Any tips on how I can improve?

    hey blackberet

    I like those looser drawings you did. I think you should continue your anatomy studies. those are always good to see. a crit for your rendering would be to vary your line weight. mastering that is what is gonna help make things look more dimensional. post more!

    why don't you stop worrying abou hatching, and concentrate on getting the structures of things first, like using planar analyses or cross contour. Y'know concentrate on using line to define shape and volume, light and dark.

    maybe use hatching to show the difference in angle and such, but later you would want to try and use only value, light, dark to show the subject. The absence of line altogether. As in no hatching, cuz hatching is line.

    SantaClaus- I still do a lot of loose anatomy work, like just quick 1 minute sketches of a persons body, I just dont post them. Also when u talk about verying the lines weight u mean like the closer the object is the darker the line should be or somthing? (thats somthing Ive wanted to try for awhile)

    TGping- Well I only did hatching b/c I wanted to try it out, I had never done it before. Though I would like to try analyses or cross contour, if I knew what they where. If you could show me some examples that would be great.

    Thanks for the comments.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------



    Batman. I'll probablly go back later and add shading and stuff. How does the anatomy look so far?

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Heres somthing I just wanted to added quickly. It's the batman I drew a year ago and I think the first time I drew him. Have I've improved?

    Yes the lines are big and it's a bit messy. This is just another quick little sketch I did before I went to bed. So far my big concern is the hair though. Any suggestions?

    I've been working on a lot of art projects lately. This is my latest and probably my favorite to date. I kinda wanted to spend a little more time defining it a bit but the teacher said it was fine and I didn't really have the time. Kinda happy to see that I'm starting to get better at defining my charcoal work. All my previous work was always really soft. Anyways CnC plz.
