Nice start. But don't forget anatomy. Right now your characters look too simple. Add some interesting details and lines. Make the compositions attractive by adding some backgrounds or anything.
As for the link and thunmbnail:
Link: Looks in you User Cp o nthe top left corner of the page. Look for Edit Signature and in the box copy past the link to your sb (in the adress bar of your browser).
Thumbnail: In your first post of the thread, get in the advanced modify mode, look for an Attachement Manager button and add the image you want... but only one!
There you go =)

To DanielC: I totally agree with you! Thank you for observation and for User CP help!

I like your concepts. But it seems like lots of your figures are just floating. Try positioning the characters on a ground plane more often, it will help to show you good positions for the legs and feet. Also be mindful of the center of gravity of your characters so they don't look like they might fall over.
My sketchbook is here

Some of your figures seem to have strange proportions despite their solidity. The 'disturbed' pair look like they'd mesh perfectly with 'inquisitor', in fact a lot of these designs look like they would be viable as games workshop concepts.
The last I feel simply begs for a more dramatic angle.

Thx for your rating blaz, it made my day to hear that
Regarding your sketchbook, i like your enthusiasm for detail, which may be hindering you of your overall perspective. I mean sometimes your drawings don't gel well with the camera or gravity, that’s why I would see simple blocking out of things, giving you more an overview. This should allow you more control.
Personally every drawing i do, I use the line tool on my PS panel, and make a couple of vanishing points on a different layer, and this helps me greatly. If you’re slightly confused, just come by my sketchbook and ask for me to post a step by step, on my next drawing.

cool stuff man and its a very clean style but lacks some pizazz if you catch my drift.. it needs a rough line put in some action poses and you'll see that a clean style needs some roughening up

to softocean: ty for the advice,ill try that!
to snarfevs: ty,and yes i know about the proportion : (...
to loneshadow: ty eheh
to cold: im really glad it made your day,ill try to do the blocking thing from now on,i hope it helps ^^
to evxyza92: ty,but i dont really get the "pizazz" and "drift" part i agree about the rough thing but problem is when i draw (like Cold said) i really get drawn by the details so the overall drawing lootks "tidy" and not really natural ...
...i cant help my self ...doomed

i like your character designs, they look really neat
and i agree on the helmets, they're just

at this age, this kinda quality :o
and it's not a bad thing if you can draw like this!
what's art school like? and what do they teach you there exactly
just keep drawing like you do now, and you've got yourself a fan already
can't wait to see more of your material

i can only repeat the stuff that was already mentioned in the other posts ^^ .....this sketchbook is really a nice start...interesting variety of different concepts..... but you should focus a bit more on the basic shapes of your charakters atm. you seem to like detailing the armory and weaponry a lot . try to spend a bit more time on the basic shapes and values and less on lines and details......keep it up

pretty good, I like many of the details, and some of the sketches are really nice - for example that of the Nightbringer and Grenth. Sometimes you slip on the line work or/and the anatomy of the characters. Still I like.

very nice sketches
i really dig the harlequins
keep 'em coming :p
February 9th, 2007 #26
charatcers are coming along nicely, good imagination ad form.
one thing that might help is to push the contrast a bit, really make the
tones and forms push and pull to give depth.
keep it up!

Hi, good ideas here, i like the first viking specially, and some of the "underground" scifi designs are great.
negative points, try to articulate de limbs of your figures giving diferent angles to each part...(sorry about my english hehehe)
i mean if you draw a leg completelly straight it looks tense and unnatural.
try to give diferent angles to each part of the limbs, it makes the drawing looks more relaxed and natural.
anyway good job
PD: ty for your post in my sketchbook Salute!

hey blaz thanks for visiting my sketchbook, thought i would repay the favour and answer your questions in one go. i do my phtoshop stuff using a touchpad mouse..the ones where you move your finger around the small square to move the cursor, i paint with that not sure what you mean by tablet.hmm and my drawings i use reference for colours and details but the poses usualy just come around by acident btu sometime i copy the poses( neither of my 2 atm are copies)......now your work, i love your attention to detail and your anatomy isnt that bad just a bit basic(lol thats rich from me) but just some bulgin muscles and more ACTION, movement etc would give your work that kick up the backside to make it even better because your designs are sweet. luvin it dude keep it up.
Any fool can know. The point is to understand.
