Hi there, CA people!
I've been browsing these forums for quite some time, and two months ago I finally decided to start drawing once again after a lot of time. I have never taken any art courses, so my experience comes mainly from comics and some books like Andrew Loomis' books.
I'm now a proud owner of a wacom tablet and a new scanner so I have no excuses to share my doodles with all of you.
here there are some selected sketches and drawings from the two last months, any comments welcome:
Here it is, a demon with a suit. it was hard to get the suit and the proportions I wished right (I guess there is something wrong so any criticism is welcome) and I was interrupted by real life in the middle of my drawing rush so I needed some time to warm up my (non-existent) drawing skills again.
I'm going to try to digital paint it, it's going to take a while I guess, my experience with painting is close none. wish me luck .
More demon stuff. I little test to give a try at digital painting in ps, I will finish it later... here it goes:
I really like your values and rendering, especially that of the naked woman. Maybe you should work on some more distinct lining around the contours. However, keep it up! I'm looking forward to your next update.
Happy new year, I've been a bit off with christmas hollydays, now I'm back to post some more:
Some more random characters for today...
Love your style, really good with values and shading, wolud like to see more pics from life. Also more rendered original characters. Keep postin.
Thanks for Envisor & Justin.
Some selfportraits from today:
You have a really good grasp of anatomy and its nice to hear that you're coming back to drawing. I like the self portraits, but my favourite has to be the sketch of the life model standing. Really beautiful. As the others have said, keep practising drawing from life, you have a lot of potential (and who needs art schooling anyway?)
thanks for your kind words titus.
bumping up my sketchbook after some time off due to university... the last pair of pages of my sketchbook, take a look.
You've got pretty good line work, but I'd suggest doing some life studies to get those proportions down.
Otherwise, lookin good, hope to see more from you soon!
carmageddonstein - thanks for the advice, sometimes I don't see if the proportions are wrong until the drawing is finished... I guess I should stop and think a bit more sometimes instead of keep of drawing
So, for today a study from this reference of deviantart: http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/47741790/
then again proportions aren´t exact, I just started trying to do a fast sketch and ended on a 3 hour pencil fight, anyway here it goes:
more random stuff...
ashrumm - Thanks for your comments and support
some hoghart and bridgsmans studies for today:
some work from deviantart references:
some figure sketches without references trying to find proper proportions and make them look on the ground (I have lots of problems drawing legs/feet right)...
Here are some doodles while idling at class, I have not much time for anything else...
I like that you have been drawing a lot of different body types and poses. The suit demon was a cool idea. One of the "drawing from life" things you could try is to do some cloth studies so you will make more naturalistic folds in clothing. You might be able to do that as a stealth drawing in class if you or another student has a jacket draped over a chair back or something.
arttorney - Thanks!, that's a good idea, I'm pretty bad at cloths, the folds tend to look either too weak or too messy...
And now an update after months , some doodles from a wrestling show...
and some random stuff...
more stuff from reference...
A nice mix of 'made up' artwork and referenced stuff. I think that your on the right path so far, just watch some of the proportions in your work.
Otherwise just keep practising and have fun.

A few more for today...

And a character concept
Whoa, this is amazing, fantastic on the shading! and on your proportions. i my self am working on shading ect, how do you do it? if your able to could you give me some hints on my book ((http://conceptart.org/forums/showthr...2#post1547352)) or maby drop me an E-Mail: Jrstagg@hotmail.co.uk. sorry to pester but the choice is yours.
Nice stuff. I love your pen studies, and the eyes a few posts back look great.
May seem like a random comment, but I really like the clothing you did. The jeans looked great, as did the jacket!
It looks like you need to look into hips and legs more, as some of the hips looked wierd, and some of the legs looked too skinny.
Keep it up though!
Also, can you pop in my SB and offer me some criticism too? Thanks
