its a creature!
Very nice! Very Andrew Jones-ish.
I like the textures you have, great sense of anatomy.
The main thing I am seeing are your enviroments need a little work. But it's mainly only practicing them. I'm looking at the town and the one with the guy with the scarf looking at the tower (the other are fine). You get a rough idea of what he is looking at, but the tower is a little too rough. Some detail could help, not too much, because it's far away.
But, I'm not trying to worry you about doing enviroments, it's just a small observation. So don't have a crazy, freaky meltdown over what I just said.
Although, I shouldn't talk about doing enviroments, since I never do them...I probably should though.
Anyways, good work! Keep it up!
ooo your so good for your age! ...well, you are!Originally Posted by KanoaRogers
Awesome stuff! Keep posting!
Hi KanoaRogers- I think you have some good ideas going on. I like the knight the best... the only advice I can give you is to just keep drawing... a lot. If you are into doing characters make sure you know your canon of proportions down pat, and do lots of studies. Keep posting!
Beonarri:andrew jonesish eh? he's kinda strange heh. I agree my environments are the things really making me frustrated. the only thing ive drawn my whole life are people, no scenes or environments.
heh, i've been worrying about envrionments long before you made this comment, so don't worry when i start posting nothing but environments it's not your doing.But, I'm not trying to worry you about doing enviroments
Kvick: hey thanks, ill be watching your stuff too, im sure you'll improve quickly as soon as you start anatomy studies.
Beershite: thnkyou man, ill try to keep on postin.
SantaClaus:I'll do my best to keep drawing a lot, and i'll try to get into studies again. I studied anatomy for a few months over the summer but then i just kinda stopped...
here's a thing i drew from ref... tried a different method of painting after taking a look at bumskee's color tutorial
ref on left mine on right obviously heh.
wow, that looks strange, in a good way! you got you're own style of drawing with photoshop or whatever you use. really inspirational, I love the first vehicle, and I recognized your "icky thing under the bridge" drawing for the DSG, good job!
Hey thanks a lot ramon. I use photoshop elements, and a wacom tablet! I'll see if i can get something new up today, I don't have much homework...
Yeah, I'm not big on enviroments either. I, too, have mainly only had figurative studies in college. It wasn't until my senior year, that I did enviroments.
yeah I really should start trying more environments..
oh well here's a non environment, for the dsg at cgtalk:
I think the only fix would be the thingy's sword on our right, in his left hand, gets a little lost. But that's really nothing.
Liked the rendering on the torso on this one http://img133.imageshack.us/img133/8486/dude2ba2.jpg
I have to admit I immediatley assume someone wants the "Wow, you're still in highschool!", whenever they mention their age or that they're in highschool, it's lame. If you're good, you're good. Unless you were 9, then I'd flip my lid with jealousy, I'm 12 by the way....just kidding. You've got skill, keep at it. More studies like that apple will be beneficial.

Posts 54, 55, 56.
54 is my favorite. I like the pose and the sense of movment.
In 55, as a sketch painting it's fine. The only problem, for me, is that the texture is everywhere in the piece. I think isolating the texture in the background, or on the "floor". Or using a couple textures. But make sure you sue them subtly.
In 56, the yellow guy is probably the best of the three. The other two, do look sorta older. The poses are stiff, and the textures are kinda weak.
Keep up the good work. I hope my comments are helpful and not hurtful.
Good stuff overall! Have to agree with Jens, though... tro to paint in insted of adjusting all the time.
thanks for crits and comments dCepT, and beonarri,
Wow, nice sketchbook you have going here!
Impressive brushwork and you certainly seem to have lots of very cool ideas. Keep it up!
I love that last picture. Mmm, monster goodness...
