Hello!:cat_hi:

Long time,since I have been here on MT. Things have been a little busy with school and everything else but I do still draw a lot. I apologize for those of you who suddenly lost contact with me, as I said things have been very busy. I will also soon attend a private illustrator and graphic design school. I'm really excited! :cat_whistle:

But but back to what I really should say .. ehm! Yes! I have earlier posted out a group of pictures I called Primo Wave, I also said that I will be posting Secondo Wave, and here it comes! Or some of the pictures anyway ... it is mostly a mix of sketch and some pictures where I test the effects and fades. So I would really appriciate some critics AND also I wish you an excellent crhsitmas and new year! :cat_thumbsup:

This is a character I'm currently working on still not finished :P

I only finished the first pic here, maybe someday I will finish the other one haha

I designed this character for a freind, but I was mostly testing out some different styles :P

Drawing hand can be extremely difficult sometimes, the first thing you need to know is the basic structure of the human hand. Later on you can play around with it and come up with your own style, or at least I tried to ^^

Dude you say you want critiques I say I want lessons from you. Joking but seriously I say these are great except The colored version of the one you designed for a friend looks alittle weird. It looks like the eyes are placed kinda weirdly placed. Or they may be to big.

I knew something was wrong with that eye! Haha, thanks! I will look into it, and I was considering making a tutorial on how I draw my characters, if there are people interested ^^

i can't really critique you without feelin' like a hypocrite... since i suck.:cat_cryincorner: BUT if my life depended on it, the left ear in your first drawing could use some more detail, and the hand in the fourth one (your kinda missing a finger)...

btw... your an awesome drawer:cat_love:

Haha, no I really appriciate it! Left ear? Yes now that you mention it... weird .. hmm anyhow! Thanks a lot! And don't be so hard on yourself really, no one starts with being professional just draw draw draw til it becomes natural. One day it will pay off ^^

1.) The eyes are different sizes and uneven. Also, if the irises are only halfway showing, so should the pupils, since they are always in the center of the iris.
2.) I don't really see anything wrong with this except the characters right ear, on our left. I think the ears are uneven, maybe?
3.) Great use of tones, I wish I could use those, but I don't have any. :( The only problem is the hand. I have a remedy for that.
4.) Hard to critique this one, but I do have a good way to do hands. You draw a trapezoid at the wrist, and draw four circles on the largest side(small side goes on wrist). Draw one on the side the thumb would be on. Then do a bracket, showing the joints of the fingers, connected by lines. Then you can draw fingers around them. It works pretty well.

That's it, great job, you have some really good drawings, and you should deffs keep it up. I have one last tip. It helps a lot with the size of the ears and eyes, and can make your eyes and ears being even with there counterpart. Eye + Eye Ear + Ear. Draw the cast for the head. It helps bunches.

I really like your lineart. On the colored one...well, I would make sure not to just make it one solid color. Also, the blue texture is so different. If it was more grainy, it might fit. Still, a great pose and all that. :)

Yeah, i was trying out some different tones and color combination but thnx! ^^

The nly thing i found worth mentioning is the third drawing(head) It kinda looks unbalanced and his/her facial features are..... weird. THe mouth is really close to the nose, and one side of the mouth is reallllly bigger then the other. But i really like the grainy one, but as sunny said a grainy filter for the sleeves would do magic with the whole drawing!

Dude! I can't believe I didn't check your thread out earlier!

I'm really liking your style. It's great to see that you're trying new things and trying to overcome the obsticle called the hand. Continue posting so I can see some more of your work!

I really do like that. However, I think the body should be a bit longer, and perhaps the head tilted a bit because of the way the arm is with the shoulder. It would help the figure be in continuous, balanced motion. I also might have made one food flatter, so you can see where the weight of the figure goes. Otherwise, I really love the coloring, the bold lines and style.

I dig it, I see you are trying to go for a style here, the one thing that grabs my attention is his feet, I think if you spent a little bit more time working on the shape of this feet and the position it would go much nicer with the complexity of his hands.

I agree, I'm really liking the style.
Suggestion, seeing that you're going for bolder lines and perspective, objects that are closer should be bolder than that which is in the background. It brings more attention to it and looks more in perspective. Also, maybe try working more on arm perspective. For me, that type of stuff has always been the hardest for me lol. Like I'd always have to get a mirror and do the pose myself xD

Nice! I like the sharp edgy style you are trying out.....but id still practice a bit more on regular proportions and anatomy. in the last one arms too thin

Great work on the anatomy, bro. The hair is also great, although it could use a bit more work on the details. Doing very well on the shading, as well. The expressions are excellent, yes very nice work, keep it up.

Gedeon

Fan-art= good
Boy above fan-art= also good

BUT i would watch out where i put cloth folds if i were you. The one near his chest seem out of place. other then that pretty good.

Hi MT!

I'm back with some more drawings, and these will probably be the last ones for a while...:cat_sad: .. but not the point... the point is that I've always been interested in futuristic drawings, and stuff like that. You know things like mass effect, the style and the environment. :cat_shylove: So I'm making a futuristic story and at the same time practicing how to draw details.. and ofc anatomy.. " yeah i suck at that haha"

possibly a main character or.. some random guy.. not sure..:cat_suck:

http://www.mangatutorials.com/index.php?do=/Portogas/photo/sketches-fun/w-3495119/download/size_1024/

some more pose and detail practice!
