    You have a very nice and clean style. I like your usage of calligraphic lines... I think you could push that even more maybe.

    It is Ryu and I did color the picture, but it turned out horrible, so I didn't post it.

    Seems like inking is my strongest part so far. Any advice for coloring noobies?

    I like the line-work on the first piece but I don't like how the guys robe just all of a sudden vanishes at the bottom. Kinda strange.

    Your sketchwork is very light and subtle, maybe you should try and push the values in them even more.

    Add some more depth and value contrast, like dark darks and light lights.

    hey, i really like your work here. You got a very nice, clean line and also good proportion on your figures. You just seem to be afraid of adding real height and depth to your images. Nearly all your characters are missing muscles and self shadows. Id suggest you just learn to fill those silhouettes with proper topology, then nothing can stop ya
    Oh, and i love the hand and mirror studies!

    cheers, ye nuke

    That made my day. Thanks!

    I tied giving my old self-portrait some depth using sepia-not sure if its any good though. I need to get over my fear of shadows first.

    Oh, and there's another mirror study too.

    i'd try to get away from an anime style for a while.. it seems to be showing up in everything here. its fine to have a style, but be capable of other styles. looking good for what you have though. nice line quality.

    Hi! You do really nice inks! I'm totally impressed!

    Very nice faces, too! I notice, however, that when you do skeleton VS fleshed-in faces, it's like the face has lost the bone structure that came before it! Maybe when you draw the face after the skeleton, you could lightly sketch in the broader parts of that skeleton to get a better idea of the face's shape and structure.

    Don't worry, I abandoned anime style a long time ago.
    These anime doodles are a few years old. I only posted them for reference.

    Yeah, I noticed too. It's probably because I refer to an anatomy book for the skeleton and a mirror for the face.
    Good advice, though. I''l try it

    Anyway, I came across this interesting fruit yesterday and decided to try and paint it. It sucks, but I need to get over my fear of painting so bear with me.

    Can I suggest bigger ears since you seem to be used to drawing anime a lot and small ears was normal? Usually the bottom of the ear aligns with he bottom of the nose and blah blah, all that good stuff.

    Advice on coloring? Hmm...my suggestion is if you want to color, make sure you've got a good contrast, as in lights and darks. Don't make an image with the background too bright, that's what I've learned since it deterred the quality (unless you're really good enough to make it stand out :happy: ). That's really vague, yeah, but it means like make shadows dark and lights light to make an image stand out more instead of closer to middles. Then again I'm not the best at this stuff knowledge-wise, just from the advice I was given.

    A nude study I did last night instead of industrial design homework.
    I'll fill it with tones and once I get some time in my hands.
    No face 'cause letting my teachers know I'm using myself as a nude model is embarassing at the very least.
