So, I figure I've had an account on ConceptArt for over a year now and I've lurked without an account for even longer; I should probably stop being embarassed and create a sketchbook so I can get better.
I'd appreciate all crits, or anything at all really. For now, here's some of my personal works and studies and stuff. ^^
That octopus made me laugh, man, good stuff. Your anatomy studies are looking good, especially the ones you did in color. I think my favorite piece are the slug soldiers lol
Those are awesome, you should do some design studies and take those a bit further.
I like your work so far, so keep it up! Keep doing anatomy studies and drawing from life a lot. My main crit. is that you should be more careful when placing the iris and pupil in the eye. On that girl (first portrait I think) her right eye (my left) is looking too far to her right which makes her eyes look off. Just something to watch for. Good going though, keep at it
Ah, thanks a load. I think I've fixed it so far, except for where I made the eye too large in general now. I'll have to fix that with her cheek while I work on her hair after I finish writing my Philosophy paper tomorrow.
@Spiderlok33 - Oh man, I would but I dunno. That one feels like it's too far gone. There are just some glaringly large structural flaws with it that I noticed after I looked at it the next day. Fixing 'em would feel like I started all over. @__@
@andres333 - I do gesture drawings for about 30 minutes every day, even though I don't save 'em. I'm a little confused on what you mean by structure though, if you want to clarify if you revisit my SB. ^^
I just did a quick landscape so I know what to look back on fixing when I start doing studies for environments. More importantly though, I did another portrait. I think I did better on this one.
Portraits look good and you seem to have overcome a major mistake you were doing in the beginning - making the, um... brain-holding part of the skull either too small and "short" (in the profile view), or too way too big like in this bearded guy. When doing portraits try not just to copy the reference, but rather build it up from the core to the surface, so that you avoid such mistakes as in the portrait from 6th december - the head in the photo is shifted just a little bit upward, whereas in your portrait it's looking downward (check the forehead, mouth). Maybe try to flip your image horizontally often (as well as the reference), so that you get a fresh view on things. It's easy to grow accustomed do your drawing and not to see its flaws (I do it all the time!).
