I like some of your dragons. And you can see how you've improved quite a bit over time.

I like the picture of the faerie, where she's on all fours. There's a lot of art here, so I don't think I'm gonna do any critiquing this post, but I'll keep checking in on your art. You're definitely getting better.

Mr rebirth phase was areound the time I started learning under donivan Howard, the greatest thing that has ever happened to me as an artist. I am kind of a shamed that some of my old damn work got put into a museum.....I going to see if I can get it taken down..

Blue_Dragon

Don't let them take it down. It looks good on the resume to say you have art hanging somewhere. Just keep improving. I don't think Picasso would have asked for his old stuff to be taken down anywhere. It helps show your evolution as a artist: where you started, where you are, where you're going. You'll need that resume if you want to be an artist. :)

I don't post here much at all for obvious reasons, hell I don't post much anywhere on the net at all, for obvious reasons and not so obvious ones. Anyways heres some sketches I've been working on.

This illustrative sketch is called mourning mother, I plan to either watercolor it, or acrylic paint it when I am down with this graphite render of it and fix the problems, the biggest thing I'm dealing with is the guys face right now. All in all if I can't fix it than I'll start the whole composition over. It took me 7 thumbnails to get to this point, and I'll do 20 more if it gets the composition fixed.

hmm, your art is pretty good, you try to do some hard poses, realistic ones, but the proportions are kinda off and the simetry too
the last one is really good, the shapes are really well done though she's kinda fat, the other female bodies have to big muscles, make them more feminine...
I hope something from what I said helped you in any way ^^

@Nerd: She's not fat, what planet are you from?

Aside from that though, he's right. Your figure studies are very good, but your proportions are pretty wonky. Just make sure you plan those out carefully when you lay down the first step of the sketch.

It's so good to see more artists on here playing with realistic styles x3 I love it. Just remember that when drawing realistically its fine to use your imagination on it's own but its very important to keep going back to having a reference. Even when I'm drawing a composition that I completely made up on my own I still keep a huge battery of reference pictures available to check myself.

Hope this helped.

thanks for the posts

Nerdonoff
04-11-2011, 06:57 AM
hmm...with the proportions you are doing pretty well, the heads are a problem as I see:
the character from left side has the chin too long making her look masculine, the hair is really great(I really suck at this part) but the nose and the mouth are kinda weird, maybe because of the big jaw and one last thing, the muscles are too developed

the other one is done pretty well, but the face again is ruining it... and the folds aren't too natural, maybe there are too many of them...don't know exactly T_T

The_shaman
04-11-2011, 02:22 PM
Thats because I don't fully understand the whole construction, deconstruct, and than reconstruct process when it comes to making the head. But one thing about art as a artist i have to do a lot of problem solving and that is just one of many I have to do.

anyways here is another redrawing of one of my old manga pictures, guess who it is?
http://i276.photobucket.com/albums/kk6/synnworld/redrawingofoldpic.jpg

here goes some head structure practice, I need more work on the planes of the head.

is it me, or all your drawings are inclined to the right? they seem to have no stability...
as I see the faces are better, yet they need more work on :)

you really got a way of making bodies, you draw curved lines...I haven't seen any straight line, not that this would be bad, but sometimes straight lines are better than the curved ones ( I strongly believe I'm the only one thinkin this way T_T so don't take into consideration...)

anyway you got the proportions right in the last drawings....keep it up

The_shaman
04-11-2011, 03:24 PM
The reason for that is because I'm still trying to grasp drawing in the round. I'm pulling the lines from inside the figure and not trying to bother with sticking to a contour drawing.

Your basic structure in these is already much better especially in the faces :3

Not many obvious problems in the first drawing but in the second her breasts seem a bit too high for their size and come off her chest at an unnatural angle. God knows I have problems with this though Dx Also her forearm is way too long. Might I suggest some life studies of arms and upper body anatomy? It would really help you right now I think. Often I'm seeing your arms and other limbs end up looking somewhat spaghetti-ish.

you've been working really hard lately, but nobody took his time to critic your work... so I'll try and comment :P

in the last image the midle drawing, the profile look on the face is perfect, I would love if you would give it a body so it would be a full pic :)
I think I've said it before, but you've got a way to make your character unbalanced, like they are gonna fall the next second(some of them)....
the proportions are really good, now you need to work on your shapes, especially on the face, cuz there are some problems there T_T but with time and practice you'll overcome this step... try and look for some tutorials to see how to make the heads...
another advice would be to make your work cleaner, make a shallow sketch and then draw the lines and erase the sketch where you can...
If you don't have a tablet I suggest you to get one, cuz someday you'll need it :)

I hope my opinion helped you in any way :) cheers XD

that has alot to do with 3 things
1. my drawings are not eye candy unlike many other members drawings are, with that said I am to lazy to go any further into that statement.
2. due to my dealings in the past on this board, their are a lot of members who don't like me, but i could give a flying fuck about them either, so I could care less.
3....This falls off of #2, this board just like the old one is a popularity contest. The most popular are always the ones seen the most, people try to play this down by saying art itself is subjective to what one likes or don't likes, but honestly when it comes down to it, someone will one product more if that product comes from someone they like better than the other product.


Anyways, I am always drawing, I eat, and sleep drawing, and I dream of myself drawing. Like I had said in the past, theirs a difference between a hobbyist and someone who is actually striving to push to a professional level. Form, Perspective, and Value I live in this world and their have been days I had chose getting art materials over food. For every picture I had posted on this site, their are at least 7 I haven't posted on this site, like for example I have yet to bother posting any of my gauche, watercolors, or acrylic paintings on this site, same goes for my charcoal drawings. Anyways, as far as the face go I have plenty of books on the structure of the head, talked to my instructors on it as well, I already know my problem with it.I still can't recreate the planes like I want to, I need to do 99 more self portraits before I get it.

As far as digital goes, its not happening anytime soon. I am hardcore traditional artist, and will remain that way until I am required to do digital artwork for a job.

Here's some sketches I've down last week.

I guess I can post it here, I am soon going to be starting an a album of a sorts, The title is called "insatiable" , the contents of the album will be a series of pictures done in various mediums following a psychotic figure. The viewer never sees the figures face, he is always wearing a large coat, gloves, blue jeans, boats, and a hood. Each composition is a new murder, or torture being committed by the figure. So anyone thing that this would be an interesting album of artwork to create?

1. my drawings are not eye candy unlike many other members drawings are...

By this, you mean your drawings are not good, right? Or do you mean it's because people enjoy looking at others' drawings more than yours? Both of these reasons would be valid. Except you chose to frame it like it's everyone else's fault. Not just that, but you insulted the integrity of their work. GG, Synnworld.

I've been in a art depression lately, trying to draw but ultimately wasting paper. Today it actually interfered with my studio work and now its driving me insane.... So i decided to take a couple of steps back and go back in time i a sense. I pulled out my old anime drawing books (I am not one for throwing things away) and started sketching some of the pictures more anatomically stylized than from anime. Maybe this helped me get back into a drawing mood, anyways here are the sketches.

Actually its simple really, and this is a problem a lot of artist have, I am never satisfied with any of my sketches or drawings. This dissatisfaction leads to frustrations especially when trying to do a pose that's hard for me to grasp, and outfits which I fucking suck at trying to design. I might need to take some fashion classes at my college, anyways to toss salt on my wounds I am learning under a master of creating the human anatomy donivan howard and medical illustrator criag brasco, who when i sit and watch one of them draw, whether it be character design, figure drawings, or environment/settings. I want to pick up a sword and chop off their head hopping their drawing ability passes onto me. The way donivan puts it, everything he teaching me, I am applying to my art but one day I am going to wake up and the stuff will just click.

I hope it clicks soon though because not only is CCP coming by my college to talk with us, thy will soon be hiring both programmers and artist to work on both eve online, and the world of darkness. On top of that I have my on small studio work I'm doing where I am the visual developer with our own web comic soon coming out between 6 months to another year. Not to mention we have a early siege meeting tuesday with a couple of studios being there and I am actually horrified at breaking any of my sketches to them. I may just take Craig's advice and email advice and email some of my favorite illustrators, he said I would be surprised how many actually email back. I just might seeing how I emailed one over a year ok requesting permission to model his work, and the next day I got an ok from him.

edit; the wobbling is actually me not being confident with my line. that is another thing I am trying tro break.

i like the way you treat the organic form of the body. it is very apparent in your work, and it keeps things from looking stiff. Right now I'd just suggest to keep working on facial anatomy and shading. Don't be afraid to use dark tones. :D Shade in a circular motion for smoother gradients, and your work should really pop.

Heres the first post of June....at least for here that is lol, anyways i was just messing around in my sketch book, and this pose kept bothering me so i finally decided to keep messing with it of course this is far from finished, I couldn't see what to do with the bottom half of the body so I just started doing knock out after knock out. The knock out on the leg wasn't even meant to be there, but oh well.

Oooh - I've forgotten about those cartoon characters! Good to see them. Btw, you don't like web design? I'm a bit surprised. It's basically another form of art creation, imo, except more interactive.

Well let me clarify it a little better, I liked the feeling when I got the finished result, but even when using dream weaver, or simple text edit program, I can't stand the coding aspect of it. I already have a problem with words and letters, after a while they start to jump and dance around on the screen or page (yes I have a dyslexia). Yes I do love the creation part of web design, even in it, their are all these freaking rules that annoy me, ultimately I may continue trying to web design (don't tell me instructor i said that, after as much as he heard me say I hate the shit.) I even say i hate 3-D modeling and sculpting, but I still start a 3-D project every now and again, and actually doing a character model now in a sense.

anyways... i still have no idea how to edit my topic name on this forum... with that here is some stuff, the two color pencils were done a in the last 2 days, the marker was done weeks back

Hmm, I'll give some crits, but tell me, did you use reference for this last post (I can't read your handwriting, lol)? Because some proportions are wrong, like the green man and woman have to long upper legs. The way you do knees is strange, they sometimes look like squares and are often too big. If you do use reference, you can compare the size of different body parts with each other. You can even use a ruler if you have problems with that.
Also, the red woman has a flat looking head and neck and her leg makes curves that a leg shouldn't make. I see you use shapes, that's good, but you should use them for correct proportions. You seem to want to put in a lot of details, but they end up overexaggerated in some cases, like the knees, the right red womans torso etc.
Tell me if this helps you, lol ^^

thanks, I'm actually at across toads right now between doing something anatomical again, doing a stylization, or doing more fan art (either cat dog, wild thornberries, Dexter's lab, johnny brovo, ed edd & eddy, rockos modern life, and i think ya get the picture.); or getting with another artist and doing a collaboration like i did with my creature style guide... I wont know what until i first pic up my pencil and draw, wish i had more watercolors or I'd be doing that right now....wait....maybe an environmental picture -_-

Your drawings look okayish even if you have lots of trouble with proportion. What's frustrating is that I can't help you with every single drawing you made cause there are too many of them and I'm pretty much a beginner myself.
I like the lady you drew in red (first page) that's all I'm gonna say, she's REALLY beautiful but please dude, less drawings so that we can comment or pick one!

Well you got anatomy pretty much in your little finger(some little mistakes here and there, but if it not for them it wouldn't be realistic i think =w= ) i would practice human faces if i were you and you are finished with human bodies as far as i can tell :D

Leannah
09-07-2011, 06:20 PM
Nah I think sometimes his drawings are spot-on and sometimes they are major problems with proportions, like the Asian chick and her cheeks.
For example, I loved the face he drew (the man) and his landscape and the little sketches he did, but it really depends on the drawing.
That's the problem when you're trying to improve. My drawings suck a lot and he's really good compared to me and quite a lot of people :)
He could probably practice anatomy some more, then he'd be really good.

Well, well I wonder are these signs of my return to mt? I will say maybe since I've reached another level of the learning curve and having trouble getting over it but I know some people who probably hope not... I so want to take a sword, and cut off Donivan Howard's head and hope I adsorb all his skill and knowledge. one more year I'll have my bachelors in game design, and afterward I'll be working on my masters in fin art and painting. Maybe I'll post some of my paintings up here eventually



well anyways here are some life sketches, these sketches was ment not to look like eye candy, but capture the sense in time, and according to donivan, I have a talent for capturing that sense or moment in my work and I might want to think about building on that. On a personal note getting over the end result and caring more about the process than the finish is easier than many people seem to think.

1. I didn't draw the lady in red, and to me now it doesn't look that great actually..
2. I can understand were your coming from due to all the changes that happened to Mt, So a lot of people who came within the last couple of months don't or better yet wouldn't know that majority of the stuff especially in the very first post is between 3-4 years old. The purpose of that post was not a critique, but instead was ro show a transition between both my periods as a artist and me crossing a learning curve.

Okay, your sketches are cool but there are still quite a few problems when it comes to anatomy.
1) The legs of the girl are too long
2) problem with the boobs, and her face looks weird -> front
the "laptop" one -> problem with the legs
the nude one -> she looks too chubby and the torso looks unnatural (too large)

I hope that helps!

The first two are recreations of one of my favorite artist work, William Adolphe bouguereau, the third is a recreation of vermeer's "Girl with a Pearl Earring" but instead i switch the girl out for myself and changed the pearl ear rings into my hood. The fourth is just random portrait practice.
