Good work on that last one.
The rendering looks better, but on the figure on the right give more form and contraste on the abdominal area. and the left leg looks a bit off
Other than that, your doing some good work.
About the guy with the long hair : it seems to me his left arm (the one that's bend) is a bit short compared to his right.
Other than that, no crits though. Your facial expressions are very convincing...
Nice kresh, mind saying what ya new sketchbook is? gsm wise? lovin ya last renders
Its Strathmore Sketch 400 series. 9x12 so it fits perfectly in most scanners .
Overdid it with different pencils in this one and it started to mess up. Oh well, I learned a few things anyway. Photo referenced
I thought i should fill a lil more of the page up.. and tweak some stuff

Nice work here. Keep pushing those anatomy studies, and u'll do fine. Anyway veru nice work here.
Check put my schetchbook if you please
Ganbat-Bad:thanks man. I guess i should hit the books for real, and do some bone and muscle studies. True i do tend to go for detail early on.
yah its a nice sketch book. multi media too! tough paper etc. i use mechanical pencils tho, and it eats them up like a mother.
OBX - drawing a.d.d.

Awsome stuff bro! how are you coming along for our battle?
^keep me going by visiting my sketchbook^
Ganbat gave a very good advice about forms before details.
on this one
the navel should be placed where the fold in the abdominal is.
The new paper looks excellent man. What grade is it? Sometimes I like smoother paper for shading so the values are more consistant.
thanks guys, I can see the mistakes im making now. Heres another portrait sketch i did, with lots o mistakes, I feel like im learning much more now when i'm referencing stuff.
Face looks good on that one, but the head is tiny compared to the rest of the body. I'm usually shit with proportions, so I've been making a concious effort to eye up all of the proportions on every piece I do. Helps keep it always in the back of my mind. Good stuff in here brotha.
It's cool to see you doing these ref studies, it's different from the stuff you usually show us. I like it, they're cool, specially the girl. She looks less like she's phot reffed compared to the old guy. And dude while your at it, do some life drawing too
thanks for the pointers guys. Yes life drawing i shall do.
I think im getting worse, im trying to build up forms with those little hatches you good guys do I have no clue what im doing. No ref
The Sketchbook is looking good Kresh. I assume the hatching you were refering to is on the last image? The only place that looks like it could really use some blending is on her forhead, the rest looks pretty good. The shadow on the cheek could soften a bit more as it moves to the front of her face. Right now it appears almost as a hard corner.
This is my first time to really look at your sketchbook. I really like the Mechina-boy, and the rest looks great too. Strych9ine was right about the proportions looking off on the Civil War portrait, but it would be interesting to see the reference...could be the dude just had a small head and broad shoulders. I appreciate your efforts in pushing yourself, keep it up its looking good!
never did enviroments so i tried to attempt a sketch of one. This is what i got
Nik, good stuff! Paper does make a difference, doesnt it? It was the same for me.
http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b2...sketchbook.jpg - I like the poses, good shading too.
You re getting on well with portraits. Good job!
I like it that you re trying different media, experimenting is fun!
Good luck with drawing and have fun!
a very messy sketch of me, I didnt have a reference or a mirror handy. Look pretty much like me, im so self absorbed
Went back and tweaked the eye area, and the rest of the face

Looking ace man, really likin the portraits. Keep it up m8, 1 day ill be as good as you lol
Ha thanks Flynn u make me feel mushy inside. Hey man I think you're just as good, even better. I bet you know more than I do.
Heres another one. Fucked it up. Those are totally marko boots btw
Drew up this one just now, no reference and decide to go a lil wild on the hair. Looks like a cool haircut to me.
And this one im still working on.
Nothing to crit actually, you have a very cool style. A bit scribbly sometimes, but considering the good line quality on the civil war dude and the girl, I suppose you intended it that way.
What medium did you use for your 2 latest sketches, is that regular pencil ?
i sometimes change the color of the lines in ps. I wonder if there are any erasable pencils that have a sepia color to them, i would totally buy them.
Cool stuff man. I like the girl with the crazy haircut.
wicked stuff on page three. You know how much you know yourself when you can do a SP from memory lol (just joking).
one of my professors has a hairdo sorta like that.
The environment piece is superb and not just for a first time. The planes are divided pretty well and the rust on the metal is a nice touch.
