Hi guys, this is my first post here at CA, started drawing again for the first time since highschool and decided to start a online sketchbook, still got a lot to learn so advice would be fantastic.
Here's some rough pencil sketches
Constructive crits are welcome!
Got in very late last night so I did a quick drawing, will redraw it later with a bit of planning, got a great idea for it.
Welcome to CA! and thanks for visiting my sb.
Good thing you've started a sketchbook yourself, and good job on getting yourself an anatomy book also. Both for learning purposes, and to draw inspiration from.
Obviously, you still need to learn your anatomy, but you certainly seem to be having ideas. I'll be checking later on! Looking forward to seeing your first studies too.
Thanks guys, sorry for going AWOL for so long. Had a busy time but things are a bit better now, so I will be updating as much as I can.
So here we go...
A rough Alien doodle
Some Arm anatomy, will start on the anatomy studies full scale tonight!!
A clowny, just for fun
Line sketch of a hip hop type of guy
Some poses, a bit light sorry
Troll Head ideas for a concept I got in mind
Troll Arms for the concept
My Troll Base, I know the anatomy is crap. I'm going to redraw it after some basic studies
Another troll Idea... I really have to practice shading!
practice shading by checking out some good references on anatomy. I usually recommend bridgman's anatomy for the artist, but there are many others.
Make a value you scale and number each box, lightest to darkest. Look at an area you're trying to shade and imagine what number it might be. If you struggle, reference that scale often. You'll learn.
You're aspiring from what I see. There is good stuff from your imagination.
I'm with Matsign on this one, practice and get good anatomy books and reference material. The main thing is to practice your light sources. Get some still life material or just a apple and mess around with lighting it. you can even use a flash light and just observe how the light hits and where the lights and darks go. I suggest working on shading simpler shapes to start out also. Start drawings cubes, cylinders, circles and shading them in and making them look more dimensional. I know this is pretty basic stuff but if you can work on those you'll get a better understanding on how things work as a whole.

Keep working on it and you'll get there. Those last two sketches are pretty fun.
