Looks like your work is really starting to advance, props to you. Can't wait for the next update,
hey, nice sketch-mook! there's definitely a progression from first page to last.
some advice though - don't sweat the detail and rendering for now, just work on capturing the lines and work with full figures, you'll be surprised how much more you learn that way. cheers and keep up the good work!

Diego: are you sure about this Diego? thnks man , i´m trying every day, now i need do something in digital, my scanner is broked, but i think now star to understand something, keep visiting here too.
Hey people sorry today i´m sooooo tired and just work in taht last pictute, i really trying now to fix a lot of stuff in that one, soe advices are be cool, now i´m focused in some anatomy, tomorow in some gesture.
Cheers to everyone
hey dude, about the digi. Check the proportions, the center line and the balance of the figure in order to get a more solid pose. Look the center of the chest and the center of the abs, they're not matching for a frontal pose like these.
If you're going for a imaginative pose, draw the head and find the center line of the gesture. start with simple lines to resolve the gesture first, don't rush it. Then where the weight is located. And then start adding some volume with basic shapes, and if you guide from your center line you can resolve these basics shapes in perspective according to your center lines. Then you can start thinking about anatomy. Make good use of bridgeman for this stuff.
Hope this help dude, keep working hard man, it's the only way.
I think in addition finding a pose you want and using it as reference while you draw your character will allow you to learn even more, faster, than out of your head Its great to test yourself that way sometimes, but there may be better ways of approaching things.
Its good your doing greyscale to start and not complicating it with colors. Flipping your image horizontally is often a key to finding some mistakes, it makes you re-evaluate what is on the page. same as upside down.
Keep going on the referenced stuff, it was fantastic to see it in the past few pages as well as some neat incorporated designs see you
Diego, thnks again for your support bro.
Jakers: thnks mans for this advice i´m doing some stuff in pencils qith reference, a lot of portraits and some anatomy studies, i hope fix my scanner or buy other son has possible.
thnks for your support and take care people.
cool dude, nice to see your going with bridgeman.
What jakers says too, i have done that with loomis, figure drawing for all it's worth, the section with the different poses, i've learnt a lot by looking a pose and then drawing a imaginative one applying the stuff i learned from the pose. Of course, you can do that with your own reference and see if it suits you.
Anyways, keep up the good work man.
ok people, sorry post nothign for this days, but i start on portrait of my wife need more skills but i really trying to do this like a present to her when come back to home, i hope som Critiques here from my friends, i know have a lot of problems with eyes, mouth, eyebrow, but i wil try to adjust all of this stuff now.
hey dude, your going very good, but i get the impression you jumped to soon into painting. Try opening a new layer, and use a round brush, and draw, just block-in more precisely according to the reference of your wife. Use just straight lines and check proportions.
Hope it helps dude.
Diego: thnks again for your support my friend, keep killing .
hi People, news.. i finally buy a scanner and i will put some pencils here, hope you comment here.
fantasyartist: Thnks for you knowlegment man, i will try my best this time, trying to do some heads per day, i think i did something about 40, i hope get the form and the ideia soon, keep in touch.
lots of shit now eheheh, some pencils.
GREAT DUDE, it's good to see your practising a LOT. Good to see your on fire. Keep at it until you get Olhos de águia and see and understand the shapes.
The eyes are starting to look better. Keep doing more of those small eye studies and do them from the sideview too. Then combien the side view and the front view when drawing them in perspective. Also put more time in your construction and pay carefull attention to proportions. Right now you seem to rush it a little bit. I'll keep in touch.
I see allot progression from first to last pages, your very dedicated. Keep going on those anatomy studies and do lots of life drawing. A great SB.!
Quinn Simoes: hey dude, great work you have in your thread, nice to see you here, thnks for this visit and i will try grow every day a little.
fantasyartist: Thnks man, i will try to fix more my eyes and heads, i need to draw more and stop to be afraid to make mistakes, thnks for your adivie here, cheers .
Jorge Gecov: Hey Jorge, valeu pelo apoio cara, espero fazer algo próximo do que você já está fazendo, abraço .
Diego: Gracias hermano, necessito hacer mais dibujos, is this right??? sorry i speack portguese better ehehehe.
Thnks for all the people who enter here and give me some words about this stuff, and all the people who just see this
Some new stuff, studies and some craps.
Your animal works look very nice.
Keep posting your stuff here ^^
mais mais mais dibujos, hoje aqui amanhã não se sabe, so you must give your best everyday right?, so keep studying.
For imaginative sketches, for example i'm doing the following, i choose an artist, for example take feng zhu, and as i soon i start doing sketches, i take a few looks to the elements he uses and then i do my thing, not copying, understanding and learning. Feng is just an example, take whoever you like learn the language, enviros, characters, creatures.
Hope it helps dude, always a pleasure to stop by, adeus hermano.

you seem to work extremely hard, I think you need put your focus into one area whether its anatomy, tech, vehicles etc. Try working in shifts and spend a week on each subject matter and then switch to something else. It really helped me doing things this way, it might work for you.
Hey men, nice stuff, the last practices are good, keep practicing like that! ate logo!!!
