    My Journey Begins..

    So, I just recieved my wacom today and I do believe I'm going to have alot of fun with it, so I've decided to share this fun with the people on here, hoping i'll get some good critique to help me improve.

    This is the start to most-likely to be a daily sketchbook. If you want to know anything about me, feel free to ask.

    Welcome to CA. Good start so far, just keep up with those anatomy studies. And figure studies as well.

    My Sketchbook- C&C very welcome

    Hey there, nice start.
    There still are some anatomical issues in your work, some are kinda of while others are quite acurate.
    Keep in mind that there are anatomy rules you need to follow in order to make your figures/characters convincing like: the ideal human (when standing upright, arms down) always is about 8 heads high, the elbows are somewhat on the same height as the bellybutton, wrists are on the same height as the crotch area, an arm consists of two segments of the same size etc.
    There's a lot of info about it that can be found on this site and in books, also study from life.
    Keep observing and practicing a lot and you'll get there

    Thanks for the advice.
    I do have alot of Anatomy and Figure Drawing books, but they never seem to fully help me, each book has only made me improve in a certain way, I dunno if this is common or not, but for some reason it seems logical.
    I have just started Life Drawing classes too.

    The one place I struggle on alot is the hip/stomach and thigh areas. I can just never get them to look right.

    Don't worry just keep at it and don't try to force it to much.
    Learn by looking, browse these forums and get inspired by other people's work (which I'm sure you're already doing ).
    Observe people around you, practise a lot and keep going even when you feel very frustrated with your work, you will get there eventually when you keep at it.
    I'm sure you'll find those life drawing classes very usefull.
    Good luck on your journey and keep us updated

    some things that will help your anatomy are studies. Pull out those books again and draw from the images(reading never helped me too much haha). Find a skeleton and try drawing it. Thats a good way for proportions.
    If you can, try getting Corel Painter 9.
    I've also seen people use Open Canvas (never used it so idk).
    good luck to you sir and keep it up. I'll prolly be back to check out the progress.

    Good start with the anatomy, You say you are having a hard time with the torso and upper legs? I would suggest studying the bone structure carefully, the bones define how th whole body looks, understanding them will help immensely.

    Seems like you have an idea of what you want, but your lines are throwing you off. I'd suggesst putting the comic/toon stuff down for a bit and studying the human body in depth, that is if you're serious about improving. Have a look at guys like bridgman and hogarth for material to learn. They'll set you up with a solid foundation of knowledge if you study it hard.

    Your creative that's for sure(more than I can say about myself),but you really need to watch the proportions.That last chick's head is down but there's still a full head's length between her chin and nip's.Don't always stick to rigid head measuring(trust me on this one ),measure with your eye instead.And I know what you mean about torso's,they get me too...keep em coming,peace.

    Thanks for the help guys. Yeah I'll crack down on the anatomy studying. Infact I just got a new book called "Figure Drawing without a Model" so I'll do some studying from that and I'll post what I've done.

    Hmm, I think people are getting bored of my bland, non-coloured, repetative sketches. Might not post for a while and come back when I've majorly improved. If ye read this, lemme know what ya's think.

    Thanks.
