    Moai-Hey man! Very glad to see you here, hope that you'll be a regular member here

    Seedling-Thanks. To tell you the truth, i found out about Wayne Barlowe only about 2 weeks ago when i read someone's post about him, but he was an instant fav. Terryl Whitlatch and James Gurney are actually the artist that i'm most obsessed about and most influenced by.

    Here are some more pics. My logic is that the more pics i have, the more stuff people will have to crit. The first sketch is the first finished pic that i've done of the backside view of a basc. They're hooved-biped with small forearms. The head's kinda screwy, but the body was my main focus. I spent a lot of time on it, but it still doesn't seem right. The second is an animal study. I always fill my pages with notes about the animals behavior and lifestyle.

    Hey, Ignomious! I'm attaching a small file to help with my critique. I hope you don't mind.
    The first thing that I noticed about your basc is that it is tipping dangerously to the left. It feels very off balance. Reversing the head, like I did in my edit, helps achieve more of a sense of balance. A general rule of thumb is that, to appear balanced, an entity's head must be vertically aligned with its center of gravity, if the entity is symmetrical and viewed from the front or the back. A commonly used example is the guy standing with his weight on both legs and with his weight put onto one leg. With his weight equally distributed on both legs, a vertical line going down from his head would go directly halfway between his feet. With his weight shifted more to one foot, the vertical line down from his head would pass closer to the foot with most weight on it. Hope that makes sense.
    Remember to constantly sharpen your pencils, or to go over to mechanical pencils. Your lines tend to be kind of soft and fuzzy. Also strive for smoother, more continuous lines, rather shorter, choppier lines.
    The basc's ears and hints of musculature on its neck are very nice. I also like that you think about the creature's biology and make notes.
    See ya next update! I think I'll add a link to your sketchbook in my signature.

    Moai covered most of the critiques I noticed, but I just wanted to add that a good range of values is an important thing to establish, I think that would really help your sketches feel more fleshed out.

    Interesting concepts, I like the amount of thought you put into your creatures, keep it up man!

    FrankWade-Welcome to my sketchbook, you're crit was absolutly right, i really need to work on values

    Moai-Thank you so much for your crit. You also are right on. I was trying to make the basc look like it had seen some type of predator and was pulling away from it while beginning to turn away from it, but your rendition looks much more normal.
