    Good imagination man, need to work on your anatomy more though. Try some figure studies, you know to put some fresh poses in your head. Great start and welcome to the Forums.

    My Sketchbook- C&C very welcome

    Hey red, wanted to say thanks for the C&C in my SB. Since you switched to using darker pencils, I suggest you try to use more confident lines in your sketches, you know more fluidity. On my figures Ive studying from kevin Chens figure studies, he was a teacher for figures, and is in game art and design at the moment. I think that his and Vilppus are almost alike. I have a link here if you ever want to check him out.

    Kevin Chen Tutorials- not really tutorials but great for studying.

    Hello...Your anatomy isn't too bad but your faces look a bit weak. Eyes, nose, and mouth need work on some of the stuff You posted. Try some refs to get some idea of what you're doing differently. I recommend Civardi/Peck/bridgman to name a few anatomy books you might want to check out.

    The anatomy on some of these sketchs is pretty decenet. Good job with the different poses. My only suggestion would be to draw some people in real life in the same positions so you can work on your imaginative studies.

    Hey, probably fellow sketchgroup member! Nice beginning to a sketchbook here. Your characters are nice.
    As far as crits go, I'd mostly suggest that you just continue working on your human proportions and anatomy and whatnot. If you can, get your hands on a Hogarth book; they're really helpful. Also, lower the brightness and contrast a bit on the pencil sketches you post. The third image on post #7 looks good; it has a gray background, but the subtlety of the lines is visible. On many of your other pencil sketches it seems that you messed around with the brightness and contrast so that the background would be a clean white, but you obliterated many of your lighter, finer lines in the process.
    One last thing: post some more colored and digital pieces. And post some new art.

    Hey sketchgroup member. from your first post up till now I see improvement in your anatomy, I would suggest working with your shading,lighting, and form in general. Also try and work with your lines, seems like your petting the lines, try and describe whatever it is your drawing with fewer lines. As for shading, lighting, you can setup some still lifes, and really watch how the light falls on the objects. For me working with charcol help me alot with shading and rendering, which gave me more confidence with pencils. Your last post seems like your strongest so far, just keep pushing yourself. keep postiing.

    Hey fellow SSG groupie! I'm lovin' your character designs and your line strokes! I bet you would have fun if you tried some hatching techniques with those pens. Also, if you want to work with value you could try working on toned paper. :3

    I agree with Kat, the lines are looking really nice and sharp. I would like to see some more development in shading and value, working in some reallynice grays, as well as some nice highlights. Working on toned paper is a great idea, I need try that too ;D.

    Cheers!

    Agreed with other fellow SSG'ers, you have a strong pooint with lines. Although, as mentioned, you need to practice on shading. Try some still-life working.
    Also the anatomy and/or proportions seem odd on some works. Keep on posting, I'll see if I'll get to give some proper tips later.
