Nice stuff dude. I like your style a lot, and you seem to be able to do more realistic things very well too judging by your earlier posts. Good to have a direction to work towards/with! I wouldn't mind seeing some life drawing from you in addition to the more academic studies. You could probably have a lot of fun translating life into your style. keep pushin forward!

Hehe, it's really cool to see how much the Hogarth studies have informed your sketches - take a close look - you'll see flowing gesture lines and a strong development of form in the most recent batch
My advice from this point on is to keep griding up anatomy, and try and marry that proportionality to the vibrance and the liveliness of your sketchworks. And remember - just because you're being anatomical, doesn't mean you aren't allowed to be colourful as well! You're quite fearless in trying new things, so work to that strength!
Good luck, friend!
main character presentation drawing for upcoming story
thank you atp for the useful tips! i will keep practicing anatomy i also know how to color but havent done any color work lately since i did too much for a while! and its very time consuming, while as for black and white sketches you can do a lot in little time

long since last update, i feel like working too hard at my job and not being paid enough, i do about 10 to 15 hours of free overtime a week and not being paid, and their excuse is that they ''told'' us we would have to work for free at the begining to compensate for the fact we didnt know anything but something feels wrong when even those that have been working for long in the inustry arent able to give their shit in time, oh well, thats why im drawing so much, so that i can do something else somedays,... at least its animation, it beats working at mcdonald
love your characters and hatching
have been busy at work and not productive at home lately....

Awesome style man. You have some very expressive sketches. keep it up
havent posted in a while been busy with production at studio but here are a few studies and free stuff ive done recently, the silouhette are inspired by dan baker's who has a thread here hes amazing, this technique is helping me a lot developp my design and character skills. most of the sketches in this post are done under 30 minutes

quick 10 minute studies before bed of the croods, new movie by dreamworks
What style! What character! What energy! I love looking at these, you have a strength in showing characters and emotions. Your compositions are also great, they work particularly well when you make those studies with gray and white fills - it creates a really effective tonal composition.
I'm not sure what advice I can give you. I know Burne Hogarth's book on folds and drapery was really informative for me, so check that out if you haven't already. Also, I see that a lot of your lighting tends to be quite soft in your pieces. This might be intentional, but in case you want to learn more about how to use sharp shadows and dramatic lighting, you could check out The Reilly Papers to solidify your technique on shading the figure.
Lastly, are you doing final pieces digitally? If so, I highly recommend Matt Kohr's CtrlPaint.com website, which has a ton of incredible free tutorials for learning how to paint digitally.
My post ended up being a mass of links to you I hope they were helpful anyway. All the best!
thank you so much Cedric, it means a lot, you have a lot of beautiful artwork on your website, thank you dearly for taking the time to write this very useful review, i am not yet doing very finished work because i do not feel very satisfied with my skill level yet...! but i will soon! im trying to get into the challenges on this website! hopefully it will help me to get the patience and self confidence to complete my work. i will carefully check those thank you very much
I'm not gonna be that constructive, just want to tell you how great I Find your artworks Love the way you do the shading, and your characters... It's inspiring ^^
