    Ahoy there! Welcome to my sketchbook! My main goal with this is to LEARN… So please post a comment or a critique.

    So I threw up some old stuff as well as some new studies HERE at the bottom of page 4

    Welcome to the site sketchbook section.

    i think your shading is good, however some of your lines thus far seem a bit jagged in places where one would think they should be smooth.

    keep at it.

    NicoRaven- Yeah i agree, the pose also looks pretty stiff...i need to loosen up more...
    Chillpill-Thanks for the critique!
    Grim Reaper- Thanks, yeah there is gonna be alot more to come in the near future.

    Thought i might begin this post by posting some stuff from the last couple months... Most of these were assignments for school, the last 2 are some quick "pokemon" designs i did for a sketchgroup the other day.

    Hey nick, OK I am going to stop bugging you about posting the rest of your sketchbook. "I need to loosen up more"? You are very loose nick, but for some reason you only want to post your cleaned up work that is very stiff. Your quick sketches look better than all of this stuff. This is the sketchbook forum, so basically this is where you should post your sketchbook. So why aren't you?

    Hey! I like your characters a lot. "Edmond" reminds me of Psychonauts for some reason, very cool style! Pretty much all the stylized pieces are really great.

    Life drawing needs some work but its getting there. I think whats bugging me is the values, they seem a bit off in certain areas. For example the neck in the side view of the head. (this critique is for the life drawings not the characters)

    Keep up the good work I like what I'm seeing!

    th3rd_sin-I posted these to give visitors a quick background of my art... about keeping it loose... Remember there is a fine line between loose and sloppy... my goal is to keep it loose, and get good lines... if i do a sketch i like, ill useually take the extra few minutes to tighten up the linework.

    loner86-Hey! nice of you to drop by, so when you gonna start your sketchbook?

    Clocks-Hey thanks man! Yeah my values definently need some work... The "edmond" character, was for an assignment, it is supposed to be in the style of Tim Burton's Corpse Bride.

    NicoRaven-Haha! Thanks!

    Some life drawings from this morning, values are pretty bad i kept running out of time...

    SeanAni- Hehe thanks! Yeah the chomper was a weapon for a baboon ninja!

    Ok its time to start learning!!! I woke up late today and decided to warm up by drawing some heads (which im so weak at) (left) i then realized how much work i have to do....a few months ago i got the Head and Hands Loomis book, i did a few studies on head construction a while ago, i whiped it open today and drew some eyes, from the book and from memory (right)...


    IT IS TIME I LEARN TO DRAW A HEAD ACCURATELY! So im really gonna be focusing on heads and faces this week! So expect alot of heads soon...

    Nicholas!! Hey man, diggin the heads and eyes, you are deffinately further off on them than me. Howver I noticed that in your 3/4 views in particular you seem to lose a lot of structure. Think planes, try rendering them or just study the skull! Keep up the radness, man!

    Your lover,
    Anthony

    Come on Nick!!! More art!!! !!!

    (Great job by the way, your faces have a cool style. Have you checked out bridgeman? I believe Loomis has a very functional head structure system but Bridgeman touches the planes of the faces very nicely. Check it out at least, might bring out more stuff out of your art. ) (Which is awesome! So post more!)

    Hey sealegs interesting stuff in here. Really like your characters especially that rock/plant dude. You have a nice cartoonish animation style that I see going on which is great. Also I like your sense of humor you have in some of your stuff,very cool. The only thing I see right now is work on your value and shading, just push your contrast more in areas. That way make you think more about your lighting. Maybe practice the same character under different light sources/direction. Great your working on your anatomy and faces, and doing the studies as well. Keep pushing yourself

    Hey Sealegs great work. If I may offer a brief crit in regards to your pirate character: watch the proportion of your limbs. Her arms in relation to her torso are too short and skinny- either taper the torso drastcally so that we can better understand your stylization or give the arms more realistic proportions. Same thing with the legs, if only to a lesser degree. Also watch where you place the knees- they seem a bit low on the leg. I would also keep in mind the structure of the shoulder girlde. I've seen this in your life drawings as well- you don't allow enough room for the clavicle, humerous and scapula to mesh together. Because there is no joint there their needs to be enough room for the muscle masses to hold the bones in place.

    Great work! Keep it up.

    bbassir-Thanks so much for the crit, you are absolutly right... yeah i need to watch those proportions, and make stylizations look like stylizations and not mistakes...

    Hey legs, glad to see you are keeping at it.
    I hope we can get that thread started for nightly sketches.
    You captured a good charles, however I notice his features are sliding to the left off his face, I think construction lines will help you feel around the head, in this case the back of his head is too stretched.
    Good luck sir~
