I decided to start this thread to force myself to draw at least on a somewhat regular basis. I've been pretty busy lately and have sadly neglected any kind of artistic development, but hopefully this will jump start me. Let's see how long it lasts. Thanks for viewing,
An old man smoking a pipe of some sort.
A woman with jewelry.
Chihuahua. Need I say more?
All done fairly quickly.
Tell me what you think,
Nice works. You capture the important traits of the faces with few strokes. You should definately develop your talent further! Keep drawing, and post more!
Hey nice sb!, well I dont think the black lines serve you well, It only looks good
In post 7, In the other pieces, they are far to thick IMHO.
You should check out the PS painting thread, I think its in the
Photoshop Section, anyways, keep it up
hmmm gotta disagree on the lines crit from Dile, i love the style man #9 would be my fave, really good direction ur going in but would be cool to see wat else u can do, dont get me wrong, i love this style and u should def keep doing it,just interested in seeing sum other stuff from u i guess....
keep it up
Those thick black lines make a nice graphical impact and I think it's an interesting style. I also think it'd do you good to explore some other digital painting techniques do get a broader range and a better understanding of your medium. Read tutorials and try out other peoples techniques, see what you can learn from them. Experiment by yourself with different brush settings and different approaches to see what effects you can get. I use mostly hard edged brushes at 50% opacity with opacity and flow set to pressure. You could try that.
At first I thought u meant Eazy-E lol
Thank you for the crits, everyone. I feel bad because I've been away from the sketchbook thread for a while, so I couldn't really post anything. I also feel bad because I haven't been sketching much lately. I am getting into photography, so if anyone wants to check out some of my latest (photo) work, there's a link on under my signature. Will try to start sketching again soon, and will update this thread when that happens.
Listing: Thank you, yea by the time I start sketching again I will try a different style.
Y-S: At first it was Eazy-E, I used to listen to a lot of E back in the day, but my name is Mike, hehe.
your style is very interesting ~~
I think you have some nice work in here. Some of the pieces have slight anatomy issues. I really enjoy the use of brush strokes in your work. Some of your pieces have really simple strokes yet capture the figure quite nicely. Don't stop painting!

any thoughts? freaking huge improvement on color from you last stuff. I feel your pain with digital colors. The right had looks fat, and the butt looks weird, maybe I can't see the bunching folds in the fabric or something. I guess these crits are about 2 months after the fact, but oh well.
