Hi guys, this is my first post here at CA, started drawing again for the first time since highschool and decided to start a online sketchbook, still got a lot to learn so advice would be fantastic.
Here's some rough pencil sketches
Constructive crits are welcome!
Got in very late last night so I did a quick drawing, will redraw it later with a bit of planning, got a great idea for it.
Hey, some great work here you got a good eye for it, natomy is rough but not the wors i've seen tho! :D
Welcome to CA! and thanks for visiting my sb.
Good thing you've started a sketchbook yourself, and good job on getting yourself an anatomy book also. Both for learning purposes, and to draw inspiration from.
Obviously, you still need to learn your anatomy, but you certainly seem to be having ideas. I'll be checking later on! Looking forward to seeing your first studies too.
practice shading by checking out some good references on anatomy. I usually recommend bridgman's anatomy for the artist, but there are many others.
Make a value you scale and number each box, lightest to darkest. Look at an area you're trying to shade and imagine what number it might be. If you struggle, reference that scale often. You'll learn.
You're aspiring from what I see. There is good stuff from your imagination.
I'm with Matsign on this one, practice and get good anatomy books and reference material. The main thing is to practice your light sources. Get some still life material or just a apple and mess around with lighting it. you can even use a flash light and just observe how the light hits and where the lights and darks go. I suggest working on shading simpler shapes to start out also. Start drawings cubes, cylinders, circles and shading them in and making them look more dimensional. I know this is pretty basic stuff but if you can work on those you'll get a better understanding on how things work as a whole.

Keep working on it and you'll get there. Those last two sketches are pretty fun.
