I am open to a good crit. Be brutal if you must. Any and All comments are welcome.[IMG][/IMG]

LOL, what's up Mr. Lyon! Glad to see you on the boards. I was hesitant to start a sketchbook when I first came here, but once I did I learned alot! Check out other peep's sketchbooks frequently too. You can learn alot about yourself as an artist simply by looking. Oh, and for some reason CCAD has a reputation of coming off as arrogant and big-headed. So don't feel bad for being shunned just because of where you go to school. It was probably instigated by the school vs. school thunderdomes we used to have. There are actually a few students that are out to prove they are better than everyone else. I think it's pretty humorous though. CA Drama, lol. Anyway, update regularily and more people will show interest in your sketchbook.
Some good figure drawings here bra'! Your at a solid level for your age. Just nurture the talent. Study bridgeman's and focus on all of the fundamentals. Drawing is most important. Your conceptual work will only be as good as your work from life, so don't expect to paint a complex scene from your head if you can't do it from life. Anyway, just make sure you take figure drawing classes dispersed over four years at CCAD. And if your figure drawing teachers don't emphasize substantial gesture drawing before longer poses, smack that motherfucker. Rendering is important, but not nearly as important as the lines underneath. Otherwise, you just end up polishing crusty turds, lol. Anyway, I'll drop by here and there. Honestly though, I haven't been posting much for a while. Too busy writing papers and other bullshit. Anyway, good luck to you dude!

Hey all this is very nice, but if youy study perspective it will really make a difference, i recommend you to get andrew loomis books, "succesfull drawing" is the one that teaches perspective, get all loomis books, they are great , post often, study hard

I can't think of any better way of putting it. This is an EXCELLENT start for a sb. I can't believe the amount of stuff you've posted already and it all appears to be top notch. Man you will have tons of people commenting on your work if you keep posting stuff like this.
Gotta love illustration. I envy you for already having succeeded in getting into college. I'm a senior in highschool, and it looks like it's going to be a daunting task.
Go for it man, take advantage of being in school and being around people who know what you are doing. Ask lots of questions and learn as much as you can.
The same goes for this site. Half of the experience is posting your art and getting feedback on it, the other half is going out and learning from other artists.
Thanks for the kind words in my sb. I haven't progressed near as much as I'd like, but once I actually get some serious instruction (i'm self taught except for this website and a few months of tutoring) I hope to become drasticly better.
Keep up the good work and post lots.

Hey man, great sketches. You're actually doing very well. Unfortunately I can't rip your stuff to shreds because I think you're on the right track :p I know you've heard this a lot but just keep drawing and keep studying, the only way to get stronger is through lots of repetition. I can see you've already got the basics of how to lay down the foundation of the form. Pay attention to proportions and the natural curves of the body, and I'd definitely like to see more focus on hands and feet. This last piece for instance, the forearm is a bit long, and the neck seems a bit off-center (too far to his left). And those fingers could use a bit more form. It'd be really beneficial do to more hand studies. But you're doing great, keep drawing!

You have a nice variety of pics here. Very accurate shading and good observation. I think theres something wrong with your biceps, I think it looks too big and unnatural. Sometimes the proportions are a bit off, but just sometimes.
