First post. Gotta work hard, man. I want to push myself as hard as I can. Also I would love critiques and advice on what to study/work on.
You should post more stuff, its hard to give a good crit when theres only 1 image.

Dont trust anything i say! I'm a noob.
My Noob Sketch Book

I'll be here with the Daggers for the rest of my art journey.
Keep pushing people, let us be great together-!
looking forward to it!

Thanks for the encouraging words. Did some female torso studies.
Environment practice. About 4-5 hours. Spent half the time plotting out the perspective(which probably isnt correct)
Could you post the perspective plotting you used for that image? I'm not great at perspective myself but I put it into photoshop and couldn't find things lining up anywhere really. Other than the perspective, you have a nice sense of light and composition. I look forward to more work from you!
"A drawing is not necessarily academic because it is thorough, but only because it is dead. Neither is a drawing necessarily academic because it is done in what is called a conventional style, any more than it is good because it is done in an unconventional style. The test is whether it has life and conveys genuine feeling."- Harold Speed
The colors in that environment are a really good direction, I like it a lot.
The first image looks like a daring start... haha.
Focus on proportions and accuracy in your silhouettes, and study anatomy body part by body part, starting from your worst one.
About the environment, the main thing I would change is the indication of people - they are not as loose as the rest of the painting, try to make them a loose silhouette, try to see where a bigger, more coarse brush can take you.
Good work so far and keep it up man!
As you are reading this, I am trying to become more awesome:
Harsh critiques are welcome!
The Pariano:With perspective lines. It's not entirely correct mind you. I find it tough to plot vanishing points that are outside the canvas
Shinkan:Thanks for the advice. I realize now how disjointed the silhouettes feel in relation to the rest of the painting.
Hey, Panama! Welcome to the boards. Your sketchbook already shows a lot of potential. I'm liking the asymmetrical masked lady piece. Your environment piece also looks pretty good, but the perspective feels a bit wonky. Can't wait to see you progress! Keep pushing.
edit: ah, sorry! you posted while i was forming my message. D=
Sketchbook -- Any feedback helps!
Eroquii: Thanks for the kind words. I see the mistakes now but I guess that's the whole point of a sketchbook right? So that other people can point out mistakes I can't see and improve from there.
Another environment practice. This time focusing more on getting the perspective right before anything else.
Another painting practice.
LMS Fan art
Some gesture drawings along with a few longer poses.
40 min movie (Boardwalk Empire) still study before I call it a night.
Chrome study and a painting of a robot.
Quick 90 min painting
Movie still (Hot Fuzz) study.
Your perspective studies are not bad, but I have to agree with what Adam said.

Leg and specularity studies.
Random girl sketch and an attempt to try to turn my 2d design in 3d.
Props to Alessandro Sarritzu aka HitsuSan
Character sketches. Roughly 30 mins on each. Gotta pick up the pace.
good start here, I like the material studys and the basic forms, cube sphere etc. Keep em coming Maybe do a still life from a fruit u have home or something else?
Quick painting. Used major structures as Adam suggested.
ninaren Good idea. Looks like ive got my work cut out.
You're an LMS fan!! I really like your perspective studies. Everything that you draw that is not organic seems to come really naturally to you.
I have the same problem as you where my anatomy doesn't follow a "line of action". This is something I'm starting to work on. Find really interesting action pose references and break down why they work the way they do. This will help to add vibrancy in your figures when you draw them in your environments and in your characters
I hope that helps, I'll be back to check up on your updates!
pastasauce Yea, I actually have the book. It's awesome. You're right. I guess I should slow down my figure drawings and think things through.
Male torso studies for now.
