    Beginners Work

    Hi there! My name is Finlay, I'm 16 and training to become a 3D character artist. Right now I'm doing a a course in 3D Modelling and Animation and now realise the importance of drawing (and now can't get enough of it). Anyway, this is the work I've been doing! Please let me know what you guys think! I would love some feedback.

    The man with the big muscles is a study of the muscle groups from a book called "Drawing Cutting Edge Anatomy the Ultimate Reference for Comic Book Artists".And so is the skeleton

    Yo how's it going finlay, yeah I love the drawings of the muscle men, ur getting the muscle layout right which is good.
    And yes the skeleton is a good referencing point when it comes to drawing characters aswell. What i would say about the "resident evil" picture is that u got the crawling zombie's muscles right, but the girls looks really "floppy", what u should do is think back to the skeleton and remember how the bones shuold look in her pose. I think the main thing u need to correct are the feet they just need to be adjusted to be pointing in the right direction.
    Hope i helped c ya around

    nice creature features, i's good to see you conceptualising your ideas and that your studies of anatomy are allowing you to extend your creatively your creatively.

    Apart from being a study, I would love to see a complete drawing, but this drawing of the creature, definatey is an indication of good things to come from you having seen work that you have not posted up herer.

    I love the intensity of the animalistic aggression and its stance, but two points,

    - the exposure of the chest should be complimented by more curvature in the back

    - the displacement of the shoulders, the angle should show that the right hand side of the body bends and the leftside contracts to compliment the pose.

    although I know you said its a creature that's a quadraped, I think you need to do some anatomical studies of mammals that ambulate on four limbs, the muscle groups and bone structures are different. The shoulder blade covers the side of the body I beleive than sitting at the back unless what you have designe is a ape or gorilla like animus?

    but good attempt and easily improved by use of correct anatomy

    addendum, as you'll notice animals that are quadrapeds do not have a flat back, imagine a horse, elephant or tiger, bipeds have flat backs

    It's not strictly a critique, but could you start cropping and resizing the pictures after they're scanned? The size of them throws me off and makes it difficult (for me at least) to get an idea of the drawing. Check out paint.net if you need (free) software for that.

    Going back a few of your posts to the frontal view of the guy with all the muscles, his head is much too small for his body.

    We do? Our spines are pretty curved too.

    Nice work so far. My main suggestion would be to continue your anatomy studies. Do tons of them so you really get a feel for your positioning.
    Another thing to consider is your line weight. Right now you are giving most all of your lines the same value. Try and emphasize those with weight bearing, our structural value and direct the eye more through your work.

    Keep it up!
