Since this is my first post/thread, I think it is a good opportunity to introduce myself.
I'm 21 and from Germany/Hamburg. I'm attending an Design-related technical school to be able to study at the University for Applied Science Dep. Illustration.
I think i have a long way to go, to reach that kind of skill i wanted to have.
To make it short i'm looking foward to get some tips ,crits and some other useful Info and of course fun
Here I go^^
After long absence i honed my skill *hopefully* and will update my sketchbook with some highlights of the works i have done in my absence.
Further more i am now studying in my second semester mh what is it called in english i think some kind of industrial design?.. but i intend to switch to Illustration.
now to the updates.

So far, your studies are good. I would recommend that you work on your digital colors a bit more.

i think you should keep working on your anatomy and muscle studies, your figures seem alittle flat, so maybe some shading aswell?
nice sketchbook tho, keep it up!
Your figures feel very 2 dimensional. I think it's because there is little or no foreshortening going on. If you take some time and construct your figures with cylinders, really thinking of the form as a 3D object, you might seem some improvements. There are tons of art books that illustrate how to do this.
I would also recommend drawing from real life as often as possible.
It looks like you have a lot of really good ideas! Keep up the good work! I can't wait to see more!
Keep on working that anatomy. You should pick up some books by George Bridgman
The Sketchbook of Frittzell
"The Imagination, the inside of our heads, truly is the most vast frontier" - Terence Mckenna
"Nature is the great visible ancient of creativity"
Looking good mate, keep up with the anatomy studies. Like your muscle studies a lot! What book are you using?
Thanks for these nice tips i ll work hard to meet my (and your^^) expactation.
yochanan : It's a spanish book translated in german with the title "Dibujo de Anatomia Artistica" ~ "Draft of the Anatomy for Artists" i think in english"
Frittzell(Image) : yeah i think I ll do that, thanks
super skoda : I think that too. maybe adding some light skin-texture^^
clockworksnail : mh shading yes of course
FightingSeraph :yes i knew it, digital coloring is really my weak area like anatomy, have to work on that.
some posemaniac stuff ive done
some have too weak lines for my scanner, next time i'll use a darker pencil
a exercise after my stupid flu i got 3 days ago
i tried to do a pose just from my mind again, to see how much i have remembered
*cough**need a spare-throat some1 got one for? : ) *
again some sketches i did during a lesson that sucked ass >.<
man scanning a bunch of papers is so tiring ...^^
That ship in the last post is wayy cool! you should do more like it! make a fleet or something.....
Some exercise in Digital colouring
the famous apple : )
step for step into the art of digital colouring^^
Nice start. The apple feels a little flat and it feels like the values need to be worked on a little longer. Nice though, I def. knew it was an apple.
Some of your figures seem to have awkward poses (ex. the archer who's arrow is pointing slightly up and bow is pointing slightly down) so make sure to double check your sketches before you start fleshing out the figure.
Seem like you are doing a lot of work so keep it up.
Sketchbook Feel free to comment
ah thanks for pointin that out rth2art yes i ll make sure to do that the next time : )
have to do sme more colourings and adding theory to it
version 2 of my apple exercise to make it more "touchable"
let#s see how you like it now after i added more value in the shadows and lights
i'm seeing good potential for the latest w.i.p.
i'l watch and wait!
Sry for the delay, my cat died wednesday at 3 oclock am in my bed ;(
and again a wip to get fresh again ...
I am sorry to hear that your cat passed away.
As for your studies,keep it up. take your time with doing pencil studies aswel.
In that appel stillife i see you used white as a highlight.
Try to really opserve the object your painting stillifes from and carefully
choose your colors. try to avoid using pure white for highlights and black for shadows. theres actually some color in it.
I really,really dig that last piece you posted.
Would love to see it finiched.
Keep on trucking!
Try this: forget all you think you know about drawing, and start scratching the gesture, then the structure, and only after these steps you should do some shading
ah i almost forgot my update of my sketchbook (the analog one^^).
here are some of 'em
