    Your anatomy is generally off, and alot of stuff like your values, volume isnt very good either.

    Iwould say, go here http://www.fineart.sk/index.php?cat=1. Download the books and start working from them, and most of all, draw draw draw

    If theres one thing i could recommend it would be get off the computer and draw with a pencil.

    Also, look at art seriously, as a subject to study. More of that Michelangelo stuff and less playing with photoshop.

    I will check back later for the pencil stuff, then maybe i could give some relevant advice.

    The Michelangelo one has a good body, but im not too hot on anatomy so i couldnt point out any subtle mistakes.

    Anyway keep it up. CA isnt really like it used to be for newer artists, but if you stick around and mingle you can get some killer advice. Dont be put off if no one replies to your sketchbook. ( mine has about 2 replies )

    I recommend getting a hold of Andrew Loomis' "Figure Drawing For All It's Worth". It's is a great starting point for sketching anatomy. Other than that I can't offer much advice, as I am a newb heh..

    From what ive seen you should probably start drawing A LOT from life.

    Your drawings are not great, but they are from your mind. To learn you need to draw from actual objects or really good reference photos/drawings.

    Dont feel bad. If i sat down to draw a sword or something from my mind it would look crap.

    You just need to build up your knowledge about the real world and the way things look. Then you will be able to produce amazing work from your mind. Im nowhere near being able to.

    Good luck.

    that watercolour portrait is great, keep studying, do some slow face studies and you'll improve quick. also, check out other artists for inspiration

    heres the little design i came up with, and i still consider it to be anatomy practice.

    expect more anatomy in the morning.

    Hey markey, good to see youre starting off young, follow everyones advice and keep the studies up, as reccomended focus now more on loomis and bridgeman as much as you can, draw stuff from life and try to get cleaner lines so it doesnt look so scratchy. Just do a bunch of studies everyday from those books and you'll get better in no time.

    As for your signatures heres some help. Click on the USER CP function in the top left corner, then go to 'edit signature' which will appear on your left. I can email you the code for you to paste in if youre having trouble figuring it out. Drop me a line at eclipser69@gmail.com. Keep it up!

    great sb so far markey, just keep going and you'll get where you want. Study from life as much as you can. All these anatomical studies your doing will also help you out alot. You might want to size down some of these pictures though.

    keep up the good work

    Hey markey2d, your work is coming along. These are great studies you're doing, keep up with them. You've gotten some really helpful suggestions so far, not much else to add. Just keep drawing!

    Hey man, thanks for visiting my sketchbook. As you know, I'm just starting out myself too. But I'll pass on the same advice that I was given as I started lol. Get your proportions right first before you start on your anatomy (meaning get your body shape and how long or wide everything is in reference to everything else before you start learning your muscles).

    When you draw your guide line for dividing up your proportions (that line with 8 head division thingamajiggy), use a ruler. I know some people will say not to rely on a ruler, but you're starting out. It's really crucial for you to fix firmly in your head the "correct" look. If you divide freehand now, you'll be bound to get some of the divisions wrong, and your proportions will start going off.

    I think you might need some work on basic perspective. To be honest, I think you should do at least some perspective drawings before you even start on figure drawing. From my current experience, I'm facing a great deal of difficulty with foreshortening, and that difficulty stems chiefly from my inexperience with perspective and shapes in general lol.

    So, I would really suggest looking around for a few boxes, balls, and cylindrical type objects, set them up somewhere in your house in some type of composition, and just keep drawing those for a bit (I would think at least a couple of months). At the same time, go find out what horizon lines, vanishing points, 1, 2, or 3 point perspective means and stuff (I suggest Perspective Made Easy by Ernest Norling). This step will be really tedious and boring, but stick to it man, and don't give up.
