some more from classes (some from life):
A lot of the heads are too big! Adults are usually about 6-7.5 heads tall, and the shoulders are normally 3 heads wide. Nice drapery in the last picture though. Also, try loosening up and drawing people in hundreds of different poses. You don't want them to be too static!
Studies studies studies! Use posemaniacs or anything else to train yourself to draw dynamic poses, fill pages with little 2 mn figures, before thinking to make complex clothes etc. You think too much about rendering and details before the basics shapes to be solid!
Of course you can continue to sketch some characters of yours, but you wil improve so very much faster if you make some studies and train your hand to draw natural poses and correct anatomy!
Don't give up!
Hey! Thank you for the reply in my SB, I thought I'd return the favor
I like the life drawings, watercolors and paintings too (those mosquitoes are cool!).
I find those last lines interesting, I really like the looseness of them, especially the guy on the left.
Keep it up!
Olá Call0ps, obrigado pelo comentário.
Pois é tenho tido aulas, o que faz com que tenha uma série de desenhos feito durante esse tempo para me tentar manter concentrado! Claro que acabam por ser esboços muito rápidos sem muita atenção, mas é melhor que nada.
O ar rigído é típico, bem que tenho tentado fazer coisa um bocado mais naturais, ou pelo menos não tão estáticas!
There's improvement indeed! Bom trabalho!
Hi, thank you all for the comments, I am glad you feel that there is some improvement!
Actually I have been drawing very little, I have hardly have had time for it latelly, working and having classes until late nigth, plus family life and other projects...
Anyway, I have done some doodles in classes (it has always been one of my most productive settings for drawing...):

You are improving my good fellow.
I really like the drawing from life i higly recommend you go along with those has much has you can they are never enough, focus more on gesture drawings more than actually rendering you details like clothes face etc.
Start at the basics and only when you have them tamed and understood you can move onto something more complex.
Nice stuff, keep on going.
Thanks Lionese, haven't had much time for life drawings latelly, only doodles and little more...
I am also preparing a publication with comics and illustration, with works from me and other authors.
It will be called Zona! The first number will be called Zona Zero and will be presented soon.
You can check it out in here:
Have you tried to do some tonal and rendering studies Fil? you know like shadows and reflected light and how adding really dark shadows in certain places help bring out the rest of the pic in a lot of times? I think that would give your characters a whole other level! Keep it up man!
