The things I noticed off the bat:
- The characters had no shadows on all three drawings.

First drawing:
-You should try to center your drawing.
-The bodies look a bit stiff in placement and there are irregularities between anatomical parts. When doing anatomy, try comparing one side of the body to the other; like look at the left side and comparing it to the right side. Are the arms the same size? Are the same thickness and length? And so on.
-Try working on folds more. Right now, they all look like lines pushing in a bit making multiple little hills or semi-circles.

Second drawing:
-Work on your perspective. The buildings look so flat and don't look like they reach high into the sky. Nice concept though.

Third drawing:
-Same advice as I mentioned above - no shadows, try centering, and work on your folds.

Have you considered inking your work?

thank you very much
i couldn't find my problems but now you say it thanks
and for inking i hate inking arts because it make art's to seem abnormal
i try to make my drawing better

Rio

Well, I don't know about abnormal, but it does look different from the pencil version. Personally I prefer pencil work but it's usually hard to see plus it's always better to see it in person because you notice the details much better. If anything, try to copy the image and then ink it. That way you get inking practice but you also keep the original penciled drawing.

The "dante" draw is not perspective, its flat bro.You need more distortion at your drawing to make it perspective.
Try to draw "vanishing point" first, and draw helper lines before draw main image. That's why you need inking your draw, cuz you need to erase helper lines that make a mess on your drawing.

The last image you got inconsistent line on the road.That's why you need one or more vanishing point where all your line meet up there.

Edit:
I just realize it. Dante's right foot must be above his left knee, not parallel.

Well if you really want one...

I hate to be the nit-picking guy but like in the couch picture, the arm bends are in two totally different places, the shoulders are way too broad and the foot is over the knee as opposed to on top of it. In both pictures, the arm length proportions are way off. At least you did improve a little on perspective. Use a ruler or a straight edge of a paper at least to check everything.

You're improving on folds, but remember, folds happen at places like elbows, shoulders, knees and the groin. Right now it looks like the folds are making the clothing look baggier and over sized. (I don't know if that was what you're going for.)

I would check this link out here, it's great for anatomy (and furries, which I know you're not into but you can still skip to the human anatomy). Hope it helps.

You've got an interesting style going on. I like it, the first one reminds me of Mugen, the main character from Samurai Champloo. There's some anatomical problems going on. The length of the thigh relative to the calf is off in that picture and it may look better if you gave him a slightly more pronounced rib cage.

In the second picture there is more of the same. The general anatomy looks disjointed. It may help you to take some time to study body joints such as the shoulders and hips so that you can draw them more convincingly.

I'm not sure how you go about drawing your figures. Do you take the time to draw the figure before adding clothes? If not I would highly recommend it as it'll make it easier to create clothes that seem to be fitting over the body.

Regardless, you look like you're well on your way. Keep practicing, it's paying off. :)

No problem. I'm glad that you are taking the time to draw the body out under the clothes. Since you are doing that, it may be helpful then to do some cloth drapery studies. You can set up a still life yourself by putting a sheet over a chair or something like that or just do a google image search for cloth drapery. It'll help you understand how cloth reacts with the body and gravity, etc.

i have a problem please help me
i think these drawings are Causeless

i mean i want to start to draw manga and train on that (not only drawing)
so what should i do where should i start?
(i know that i have problems yet........)

It's good that you want to branch out. There are a ton of tutorials to help you write mangas, so be sure to check out those.

If you want to start a manga, you need to be ready for a lot of writing. You need to brainstorm an idea Once you have the whole idea planned out and you know what to do, you have to write the story down by what's happening in each panel. There are a bunch of tutorials about writing mangas. After you know what each panel is, you can start drawing them. Before you start, though, you'll probably want to develope characters that you can draw over and over again, each with a full list of emotions. (This is the way I write my mangas, other people may have other ideas)

I assume that this is your first time making a manga, so don't expect it to be a best-seller and get really discouraged if it's not. Have fun making it and just think of it as practice.

I hope this helped!

I once felt that way with my work when I was around your age.

As much as possible, draw dynamic images if you're just looking for a more "purposeful" way of spending time improving your drawing abilities. There's no need to immediately come up with a meaningful plot or text to place with the picture you drew (unless you want to save time by trying to work on all aspects). You can start by drawing dynamic poses and angles just as I've said. Based on your art I see in this thread, you haven't done 2 or 3 point perspective yet have you? You also haven't tried doing highly dynamic/active poses? Try doing those kinds of angled shots together with more dynamic/active poses (like for example: flying, falling, kicking, sprinting, etc.). In my humble opinion, this kind of drawn art tells the viewer a lot of things even without placing any text, giving it some sort of depth and an ongoing story/situation by itself. It may be difficult at first if you don't have much idea what angle/point of view/perspective to use with a certain action/pose to make it very effective in conveying a message, however if you enjoy drawing, I believe you'll find this fun. You'd also find yourself researching for such types of pictures to give you ideas to try/imitate until you can formulate one yourself. Well I hope this helps.

How about making very short stories at start , that might help you collecting info of what to draw, how to draw, environmental studies, dialogs etc . Because I think accomplishing these might give you enough confidence for working in big projects .

These are all good, some points I noticed were;

Pic 1) He is very thin his body is thinner than his head o: which means he either doesn't have a ribcage or no internal organs o:
Pic 2) On the straight forward looking face the eyes look like they are different sizes and possibly not on the same level, but I think is caused by the way you took the picture.
Pic 3) On the turned face you haven't made the far away eye slightly smaller.
Pic 4) It may just be me but it looks like his neck is broken :O and also his legs are very linear and box like.

Hope this helps :3

It is often better to be unique than try to push through a saturated market. Manga may not be widely accepted in your country, however, you also don't have much competition. I would highly suggest not going to Japan in hopes of being a mangaka, just be a comic artist/writer in your own country and draw in whatever style you like (which could happen to be heavily influenced by eastern comics). Moving to Japan in order to create manga is almost impossible unless you are already a native Japanese speaker. There are just too many amazing artists already in Japan for them to welcome an outsider that doesn't speak perfect Japanese.



can i publish manga in other country without going to that country?

You can and I would highly suggest that if you are able to build a fan base in your own country, then you may be able to find success in other countries as well. Also, these days it is very easy and acceptable to produce comics and display them on the internet for an international audience. Why limit yourself to just Japan when you could show your stuff to the whole world?



and is there any international manga competition that i can Participate in that?

I don't know of any off the top of my head, but I'm sure there are plenty if you take the time to do an internet search.


Before you get too excited about competitions and becoming a professional, you should concentrate on just producing a comic. Lots of people say they would like to be comic writers/artists but they never have anything to show for it - I know I don't.

If I were you, here's what I would do.

1. Write and Draw a comic
2. Show the comic to friends and others
3. Write and draw another finished comic using what you've learned from the last to improve
4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 ad infinitum.

The key here is - produce comics, then worry about making a career out of it.

i am trying so hard but can't understand what is my problem for example look at this picture blow this is great and so better than my drawings (this is for one of my friends)
i don't know what is the main different between his drawings and mine can you guys tell me plz???????:cat_wahaha:

He has had much more time and practice. Also a tip, don't try to compare yourself to other artists, particularly ones that have many years of experience more than you, unless you plan to use it as inspiration or as a reference you could just end up annoying yourself. I will give some feedback once i've had dinner and will just edit this post.

I like your inking, it went well in my opinion and the character design is nice and interesting :) some things I noticed were that the eyes appear to be different sizes and too close to each other, as it is a straight on looking pose they should be approximately the same size and one eye distance apart. The right arm is very jagged and takes a large turn before it joins to the other arm. As your character is female try to make the lines smoothly into one an other. Last point for now is that her arms appear to be very long but I can't say for sure as the body is hidden. Hope this helps :)

Dante13
09-11-2012, 04:01 PM
thank you about your tips
it is so hard for me to draw both eyes in the same size i should practice more:)

but about my friend : he is 17 and I'm 18 so how he has more experience than me
and one thing :you are trying to say that if i practice harder i can be like him or maybe better than him right?

Delphinus
09-11-2012, 04:14 PM
Most good artists start young, work hard, or both. When did you start drawing? How often do you practice? If your friend has been doing an hour a day since he was twelve, and you've been doing a couple of hours a month since you were sixteen, of course he'll be better.

Demonfyre
09-11-2012, 05:25 PM
The more you practice and practice on areas you are weak at the quicker you will progress and improve, if you were to practice enough and make sure to make it a daily routine then yes you could surpass his abilities. Also don't try to invent stuff, use references to learn different techniques or ways of drawing things as this is how you learn quickest, for example if you want to improve your bodies practice anatomy and use references :)

For the experience point, everything that Delphinus said, a difference in age does not dictate your drawing experience, other factors dictate that, if he has been drawing from a younger age, for longer and is more serious about it then of course he will be better.


Also a tip, take advantage of his knowledge, he knows more than you so get him to look over your work and help you pick out areas to fix up/work on. I'm sure your friend will be more than happy to do so :)

09-12-2012, 12:40 PM
What concerns me about the eyes isn't necessarily the eyes themselves as much as the glasses. Glasses don't sit so close to the face as to frame the eyes perfectly; there's a bit of space between. This means that at an angle such as the one we are looking at her face from they wouldn't appear so close to the eyes.


http://pinkdiamondstl.files.wordpress.com/2009/10/model-with-glasses.jpg?w=460

Note that the lens over her eye further away in this photo appears to sit further off the face. That's because it does.
Furthermore, the eyes seem to give her a bit of a wall-eyed look due to the placement of the pupils. Please, oh please, practice drawing more accurate real eyes before simplifying them like this. It will help, I swear.

Other than that, I like where you're going with the hair. Definitely keep that up. I hope to see more of your stuff soon, and to continue seeing improvement. c:

Demonfyre
09-12-2012, 01:56 PM
I think GaBo is referring to the fact that it looks particularily flat in theory like a wall because of the way you placed the pupils, I could be wrong but that is also the impression I am getting by observation of your drawing and his critique.

Also to make her look like she is actually turned make sure to foreshorten the pupil as well, you have the eye reduced in size to show that she is turned but the pupil is the same size as the closest pupil which is misleading :O

Conveniently I had a pair of eyes on the GB I was working on, here is what I mean;

Highlights in eyes are usually great, and I personally like to use them even when they shouldn't be there. But think about where and how you place them; to begin with, two highlights are suggesting two equally strong sources of light, and if you want to be a comic book artist i really can't see any reason why you should ever use more than one light source. Comic art is based on increasing or decreasing contrast to emphasize the mood of the story, and generally one light is the best way to achieve that. Second, take into consideration that the eyelids isn't paper thin, and will probably cast a shadow on the top of the eye, and highlights don't appear in shadow. with a little imagination, this is an eyeball
http://i1150.photobucket.com/albums/o608/jenbe753/Eyeball.png
If you want to read up on it, this would be a kickass resource; http://gurneyjourney.blogspot.se/2010/02/light-and-form-part-1_15.html

Also, you should really try to critique others work, a good artist is most likely also a good critic. If you can't find things to improve in other artists' work you most likely won't find them in your own work, and part of being a good artist is to find and correct mistakes while you work. That's why most artists find it useful to work in passes, it makes it so much easier to find the mistakes in time and fix them before you start the next pass. And everything takes practice, if you try write critiques you will soon be able to do it more naturally.

Good luck :)

but i know that you are right and really thank you
i will practice more about eye

Demonfyre
09-15-2012, 06:22 PM
Personally I would be inclined to ignore that part about the highlights and adopt Rubisko's technique on eye highlights based on where your light source is placed, two or more is acceptable as long as you have several strong light sources. Otherwise you could confuse where the actual light source is and generally make things difficult

Rubisko

It seems to me that what you really have problems with is drawing the head, and since it's not structured correctly the eyes fall out of place as a consequence. Luckily there's a really good book by Andrew Loomis on the subject called "Drawing the Head and Hands". I don't have a link to where you can download it, but you should be able to find it pretty easy with any web searcher. Other than that it's just draw draw draw. Everyone starts as a beginner, but by drawing a lot they eventually go places. If you want to be a comic book artist then just draw all the time, always carry paper and pen with you.

Also something that might be a problem when drawing with a face - when you're drawing it just as practice and drawing loads, you're not as worried about how they'll look, and you'll be drawing looser and more naturally - when you actually go to draw a proper picture, you want it to look great, so you're much more focused and aware of every line you're drawing, so you may be stiffening up, making it harder to make natural looking lines. if you try and relax, and just treat your picture as another practice, it may help a bit :) but definitely check out what rubisko mentioned, having a properly structured face will help too :)

thank you Rubisko for that book i read that and helped me so much but i still have a problem ,,,, drawing the mouth and that book doesn't have much about mouth(or maybe i didn't get it)

for example look at this head that i've drawn maybe i'm wrong but i think every thing is ok except the mouth you can put your hand on the mouth and see that the face is nice but remove your hand and you will see a face like gorilla
so plz give me some tips about mouth (a book is so better if is possible)

For the mouth what I suggest is drawing very little in the form of lines, only to indicate their presence and areas of heavy shadows but then shading the rest of it to give it form and appear like it is there (a bit like in your second drawing), right now you have it outlined suggesting there is massive difference or that they are separate.

EDIT: Oh, also reduce their size that would also help

The book actually have a great deal to say about the mouth and the lips, but there's no separate chapters for different features of the face, the book aims to give the reader a complete understanding of drawing the head, so you'll have to read carefully, like you would with any textbook in school. Other than that the only thing I can recommend is to draw mouths from life.
Demonfyre is right in that it's sometimes more effective to chose which lines to use when you draw, but I believe that you need to understand the subject very well when you do so.

And I really don't think that the face you drew looks like a gorilla, with or without the mouth :) There's a line between being self-critical and just being unfair to yourself, keep on the right side

thank you demon fyre and rubisko

about that gorilla face i just was joking ,,,,, that is not like gorilla but is as ugly as gorilla.. isn't it?(lol)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
i have drawn 2 female face
drawing the lips for females is very very easier than males(when you draw lips for males they will turn to gorilla(lol))

so how are this two faces :

In the first picture I wasn't even sure that those were bangs at first. Add more shading and highlights to them so that they don't look so flat.

The profile face is very cute, but the ears to low. Remeber, the ears are at eye height. :)

Keep up the good work!

Looking good, for the lips I wouldn't make the bottom of the lip so dark, I would try to make it look more like the top and then some slight shading underneath to indicate that it isn't flat

or you could say you both have Takayuki Yamaguchi style, with the sightly difference that he copied Yamaguchi style, and you don't do the meticulous anatomical approach Yamaguchi has.

The profile looks very nice, especially the lips! On the first, both the eyes have different styles of eyelashes which make them look wonky and throws off the reast of the face.

Good job! like i said in da, your face drawings are fantastic! Maybe the hair needs more work tho. But still, you've been improving a lot!

hehe hi there dante :3

i really like how your style is developing in its own. its distinct now with realism. your pose and anatomy are improving :3 tho maybe folds need more study... i suggest this tutorial on drapes on CA (http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?14739-Drapery-Process-quot-Drapery-quot-Two-Part-Drapery-Demonstration) ... it discusses how to tackle form, shape, and shade of fabric when in sketch. very helpful...

the details in all drawings are really good. i really like the last drawing with the expression of the girl. shes very pretty.
you should probably start making original characters now since i think your design and technical skill has so much potential already.

sorry been away... i've been lurking online but i don't have enough time to comment and view stuff... i just basically brush through posts...

Hi :D
Your art is really nice.
This looks really good and you should continue studying anatomy, practise will make it easier. In the third picture, I think that the left shoe (her right) is a bit disproportionate considering where her leg is. Maybe try making a bit smaller. But so far so good :)

BunnyVoid***thanks for that link .... but i had read that already :)
and about making an oc .... i am going to do a web comic with a writer (but nothing is certain yet)
so there will be some oc lol

Midori-Midori**thank you very much.....but about the size of that shoe.....i don't know how to fix it ... does that reapeted in this drawing too??

The right arm is really thin with comparison to the torso and the left arm, also the upper left arm is massive compared to the lower left arm, measure the two sections with a ruler to try and find the area where the arm joint would be placed which would give equal sizes to both sections of the arm, remember that we are symmetrical organisms. I also think her waist is a bit thin. Nice work on the dog and her face :) they look great :D
