    DrawingLife Sketchbook

    Hey, everybody! I'm new here, but I'm here for your critiques, so lemme have it.

    The piece below was done mostly in Photoshop, but the characters were scanned in.

    Feel free to check out my web site as well...

    Now for a drawing I did a while back. After doing a little bit of perspective study in school, I decided to tackle something bigger than just boxes and street corners, so this is what came out of that.

    Critiques welcome, as always.

    Next week, gestures and sketchbook-type things.

    Okay, here's a few more sketches, just so I don't stick you with nothing to look at.

    I like the first peice alot, but I think it would be better if there was something more interesting in the background other than the glass, not sure what though. The characters are nicely done and I like the depth of field. Can't give you any real crits on your skills with photoshop b/c Im just starting to learn the program myself.
    Your sketches look good aswell but It could just be the fact that they are sketches but it seems you need to practice a bit more on your anotomy in the more life-like sketches.
    Keep posting

    Thanks, Chrisbro! I appreciate you taking the time to comment. Anatomy is something I can definitely improve (always). As for the first piece, I'm not really sure what I'd add to the background that would make it more interesting without being distracting, but I'll keep the suggestion in mind.

    Here's another set of sketches, from the past week or so.

    Here's a sketch I could use some help with. I'm having trouble with the perspective on the right hand, and some flatness going on in the torso.

    Draw-overs welcome.

    YO!!!

    Very nice work man. I really like your sketching and posing very dynamic. My only critique would be on the first post, It seems you wanted to go with a gritty feel but I think you didnt reallly have much contrast which makes the scene look rather plain.

    Keep it up.

    Here's a couple of lion studies I did, copying from Ken Hultgren's The Art of Animal Drawing. Just trying to get back into drawing animals, and studying how they're put together.

    Thanks, Envisor!

    Here's another bit of animal study. I did these looking at some Cheetah footage on Google video.

    Very nice work so far! I really like that perspective on the city piece up top. Very cool. You seem to have two very different drawing styles, cartoonish and realistic. Thats good that you can flip back and forth. Great! Keep on going.

    Come here kitty kitty kitty. Lol, these cheetahs are awesome. Wanted to say thx for replying in my thread, the legs have always been that pain in my side. Probably because I never used to draw them, they used to give me hell, but at least im getting the hang of it. Little by little I guess tho. Cant wait for more. Cheers!
