Swen's character factory: Characters, Tutorials & More Characters (updated Aug 23)
Hi, my name is Swendly. I studied Game Design & Development in The Netherlands and now I'm a full time freelance illustrator and concept artist with a focus on character design.
I started this sketchbook so I can get constructive crits, share knowledge and my art with the rest of you. Enough talking lets look at some art.
Crits are always welcome

nice starts, my fav are the first animal and human studies, very nice lines and dynamic shapes.Other figures are quite stiff.Try and work more on face anatomy and life drawing, i'm sure it could help.Keep this thread up, i wanna keep watching
Thanks man I love doing those animal studies too. What exactly didn't you like (or could be better) about the faces? Most faces I draw are very stylized so some proportions are exaggerated. I started doing some gesture drawings lately to make my characters more dynamic overal. I'll update soon so keep watching.
Glad you like my work I'll take a look at your sketchbook soon
Been awhile since Ive been here. Great sudies and digitals you have going on. I love your last post, the painting looks really good, but you need to define the head a little more. I aslo love the pen piece. Very confident lines and great scenery, the tiger just looks awesome. Cant wait for more.
