A general 'good stuff' as usual from me. I'm a bit bothered by the thickness of the pencil though, are you used to using it like that or...?  I love the gesture drawings the lines there are direct and to the point.

I think i'd like to see some winged demons for some reason. Good stuff ryan!!!

@suuper:
Hey, thanks for visiting my stuff again. The smudges are most likely due to my carelessness. And this batch of posts I focused more on my line work, so if you can see any difference, I would appreciate your feedback. Though, I'll be leaving value behind a little for now(they tend to hide my mistakes in other areas).

@lego: I use primarily wooden pencils for drawing now, and sometimes my pencils don't have a good edge to draw crisp lines. I will try to take better care of my pencils. And thanks for the compliment about the gesture drawings. Hopefully, my line economy in my gestures will continue to improve. And winged demons, haha? Maybe, my friend. We'll see.

Also, more critique and advice will be very much appreciated.

"[5/11/2013 9:46:48 PM] Ryan: i look forward to your post tomorrow morning, mike"

You clever, word-playing bastard...
But I respect good word-play.

I merely do not have time to cover all the things I want to cover (time crept up on me). But first, let me start out with... Great continuations. You're working hard as usual, and it brings me great pleasure to continue to see you working hard.

I wasn't able to comment on your last batch of drawings, but the value apples were fantastic, and your imagination with the demons, dragons, and deathly-ill dogs hasn't faded, which is good. With this recent batch, page eight's (5-2-13, top) hand was great. The thumb's clean lines are good, and the various contours of the hand and fingers were clearly defined. On that same hand, I would suggest rechecking the tip of the index finger, and perhaps straightening it out a bit. But, that's merely a suggestion on an already great drawing.

Keep up your anatomy studies. Page nine's (5-2-13, bottom) anatomy studies seemed pretty spot on, particularly the back and the upper neck. Keep in mind, however, that the muscles of the arm (and of everywhere else) are not "edgy" but rounded and organic. But, those are minor details...

On with my two red-linings, which are more like red-colored comments, ah?

Spoiler


For the first "red-lining," I figured it was easier to comment on them with words on a drawing page rather than words on a forum post, if you know what I mean. For the second one, a decent amount of your figures are running into the same problem. Too wide-spread feet and awkwardly placed knees.

You have to keep in mind that the knee will often follow a straight line down the middle of the foot. If you are sitting, try this: Stick your leg out, be it your left or right. Plant your heel on the ground, and point your toes up to the ceiling as much as you can. In this position, rotate your foot to the left or the right using your heel as a pivot, as if a hand on a clock. Your knee will follow the middle of your foot regardless. Now hold your knee with your hands, and attempt the same exercise. You'll notice your foot has extremely little maneuvering room, perhaps a five to seven degree spread left or right, without the knee following suite.

Too wide-spread feet is also an issue. There are three positions from which humans hold themselves with their feet. The first is the feet are pointed straight forward, which some consider the "ideal." The second is "pigeon-toed," or the feet pointed inwards toward the center of the body. The third is a wide stance, in which the toes are pointed outward from the center of the body. The extreme "naturals" that people will hold themselves in for the last two are, going from the center of the body, 80 degrees outward and 35 degrees inward.

Now, a wide-spread position has a lot of leeway. There are natural positions that allow for a 90* spread with perfect comfort, and these often look a lot like "L" shapes, which can vary greatly. You'll find a lot of girls hold themselves in an "L" shape with their feet when standing still, particularly when discussing amongst themselves. Fighters often kick with a foot behind them, which will often be parallel to the kicking foot, usually at a 70-90* angle from the center of the body, depending on the range and type of kick.

Next time you find a gaggle of girls gobbing away amongst themselves, check out how some of them stand to see what I mean.

Keep in mind that, when they stand, they will often have a balancing leg, with the leg performing the outward angling bent and off-center.

If you're going to have your figures stand with a wide-spread, be sure to keep it under 80* for a natural stance, otherwise, their balance will have to shift to compensate for the load.

... Anyways, that was my anatomical two cents for the night. If you want me to take another look at 'em sometime and cover more topics, just hit me up on Skype. Gotta hit the sack in the mean time. Learning to sew tomorrow, and it's nearing 3 AM...  :glare:

Keep up the good work, bud.  :biggrin:

@zeal i think i might start using that method of helping people improve, it seems much faster than writing out what i mean when i can just draw over and annotate their art directly.

iver been noticing quite a few people missing out hands, something i found useful is getting one pose right for hands like just waving or something, then if you dont want to do anything, you can just use a pose you are used to doing, it maketh the drawing more complete. then as you gain more experience you can create more variety from memory and imagination :P

@suuper: thanks, yeah. Hands are something I've been dying to work more on.

@zeal: thank you for your helpful post, once again.

I still have some things from a week ago to upload, but I'll make a post with recent stuff.


female warrior wip sketch; trying to figure things out with this one. Will aim for something of a more polished/refined quality by the end of the week.


head drawing with emphasis on construction. I'm happy with it right now so I'll leave it how it is.

Eeek, long time no update. This is something I drew tonight really fast, and I decided to post it here. I have some other stuff to update with; I'll get to that later.

Hello mangaraiders, been a while since I've posted in my sketchbook here. Starting it up again, would appreciate feedback.

This time I did 2-min as well as 1-min hand gestures after.

Vacuum cleaner from life

sketchbook pages from recent(11x14, so they're a pain to upload since I have to stitch the scans)

Lines, 30 sec gestures, and a concept thing. Gotta make my concept drawings better. Next time probably will have to try out a 3/4 view.
