NEWEST CRAP ON LAST PAGE
Seriously, why would you read the first page, filled with shitty quasi-sketches, in a 20+-page sketchbook?
I've decided to start a little sketchbook filled with oddities and concepts and what not. Tell me how I can improve and stuff.
I'm trying to find some drawing books by Loomis so I can generally improve on anatomy and stuff. It'll get more interesting later on, I give you my word.

A few digital drawings I did on GIMP.

Some character design stuff I did for my Drawing and Painting class:
Some weapon concepts I made:
the guns look funny becase of the blur and squgily lines. they look like a 9 year old drew them! srry but true
i recomend to ethier make them look neater or dont use tha program!
i guess this is were i put my work in this thread
gears concept art
i own a gamertag is K5 Stifmeister
Hey , study from reference to get an idea of how things work/look. With your weapons concepts, etc. you can get a decent silhoette/concept but the function of the weapon, etc. is missing, and that's what really defines it's shape, think about that heheh . Keep at it.
Nothing too fancy, just a concept design.
For your entertainment, I'm going to post some pictures from all the way back in 2006/early 2007. I've definitely come a long way since then.
I did a few study drawings from PoseManiacs.
Well since your looking for Loomis books
I would suggest looking through the figure drawing book
And learning as much as possible
Right now it seems thats where you should start
Also I wouldnt suggest attempting digital stuff right now
First learn the pencil works to an extent and move on from there
Best of luck
I'm working through the Loomis books right now. Suffer with me and we'll egg each other on! You've got the right idea so far, mostly sticking to anatomy studies and Loomis is pretty helpful even though I've barely scratched the surface with his material. Keep drawing!
Again, I found more images from 2006. They're far from representative of my works today, but I just wanted to post them for lulz.
I've improved a lot since then, no?

Finally! Got new stuff to post.
Just got two new drawing books today. Here's an anatomy study/future character sheet:
Added armor and changed up the posing a little.
This next batch of images comes in twos.
First off, I have some new anatomy studies drawn from a new figure drawing book I got.
In order, here's my description:
1: A guy sitting and kneeling.
2: A person in repose.
3: My pitiful attempt at incorporating shifting weight.
4: A faceless woman sitting down.
5: Back view of a woman.
6. Side view of a woman.
Guys, would any of you mind giving me some comments and crap on this?
You are doing a good job on those figure's, keep doing these often. The proportions on those last ones are good but the arm is way off, with the hand it should be around the 4 heads long. Also the arm has to be a bit thicker and watch how the muscles are in the arm. You are on the right way
And here's Part 2.
The second image is my first attempt at drawing a battle scene back in 2007, posted on here for shits and giggles.
The first is my latest attempt at it. Played fast and loose with the proportions and mainly focused on composition.
How old are you ? ;Pp
i like the last one - WARZONE!
You seem to be headed in the right direction, but your proportions seem off. The torsos when you do figures are really long, much longer than they should be. Which is fine if that's part of your concept, but it doesn't work so well with a straight figure study. If you can dig up Andrew Loomis' "Figure Drawing For All It's Worth" (there are copies online if you look around), there's some really good stuff about proportion right at the start.
Good luck on your development!

"Skill is the result of trying again and again, applying our ability and proving our knowledge as we gain it. Let us get used to throwing away the unsuccessful effort and doing the job over. Let us consider obstacles as something to be expected in any endeavor; then they won't seem quite so insurmountable or so defeating." - Andrew Loomis
And I like the Warzone ones too.
Despite all the anatomy and perspective wrongness of that last warzone, it's still a personal favorite of mine if only because it is the most shit I have ever crammed in a single drawing at one time.
Fiddling with my Wacom tablet.
This is a bit of a fun dump here. This is my attempt at drawing the creature from Alien. It's based off some lineart I did in November.
I made 2 versions of this bad boy.
#1 is just the Alien.
#2 is the same picture with my attempt at lighting.
