Try to draw some more from references. Right now many of your characters have very similar poses and almost everyone seem to be heavy bodybuilders with sixpacks. Try to break out of the pattern
Looking good though. Keep it up!

Comixnut- Thanks a lot! . i'm thinking of some characters for a story, i've been doing that with my 0,3 mm mechanical pencil. I didn't understand very well what you meant with"(big noob area is the head)"- you mean the head is worse than the rest? desculpa lá mas não percebi muito bem...
MorteM- I realy got to do that, but these last guys are all for a story I am writing, they are supposed to look like that. Though I have to admit that all the people I draw are too much like bodybuilders, thats what you get from learning to draw from super-hero comics. So thats a problem that comes all the way since i was a kid! Thanks.
Here's todays image (from life), two of my friends, they were doing a presentation and I was drawing them:

really liking this style man - the flat shapes mixed with the more textury sketches - really cool. Be careful not to flatten out important part - haven't seen that happening here too much though.
Great work mate - love this style would love to see how it develops mate!

some good work, the oil paintings are very nice.
as for your drawings i reckon you need lighten up on the pencil loosen up on the lines and use longer strokes. and try doing each line once. and only once. its hard.
August 29th, 2006, 11:40 AM
Thanks Tobin. Yes I know what you mean about the strokes, the problem is that at the sketch level I normaly don't get the line i want at first because I'm not too carefull and then I have to correct it with other strokes. Hopefully its something that is corrected when it is past the sketch level, but I'll be paying more attention to that.
