I like ur style, not much to crit except for the left arm, it's to short compared to the right one.

I'm sorry, but should I know you from some comic?.
keep it up!

Nice hands! I always had trouble with drawing hands and feet, but it looks like you got the whole thing down. Vary nice, no crits from me.

Thanks mate.You are right about that left arm.I don`t think you will know me as i am more popular in Mauritius for drawing comics for a local newspaper.

Hmmm wise remark here.That`s right.Thanks mate.

Thanks mate.Well i is not difficult if you try drawing everything in construction lines and geometry first.Everything will seem simple if you construct your sketch first.

Thanks Dude!!!

damn! you did this when you were 17!? dude you got some serious talent!

I always was into drawing comics (now i'm more into concept art and artwork for games, also learning 3ds max, but still interested in comics) and when I was 17 (currently 23) I toughed I was good, but compared to this my old work looks like crap!
Got nothing to crit, looks awesome, keep it up!

Hello,

Your work is amazing and you have incredible skills. I'm surprised you've not pursued or broken into the pro field of drawing comics with the little work you've posted here. The majority of pros can learn a lot from you.

Anyways, your first pic of the warrior, no major crits from me but he looks like a lightweight younger and cuter version of Arnold as Conan.

The last drawing of the dancer girl while more realistically proportioned as a human seems to me has shorter legs but maybe it's just me.

Great work, keep it up because it motivates me to keep sketching and lately I've devoted more time to learning 3D then I should perhaps :wise:

Check out one of the sketches I made a couple of days ago if you get a chance. The amazing part is that I can feel myself getting better with each drawing in this style, this one only took me about 5 hours where I would've wasted 3 or 4 times as much on it a couple months ago.

Yo man i think your drawings are awesome and i really love them. One thing i wanted to ask you is where did you learn how to draw muscles. When im drawing i have difficulties drawing the muscles and the lines on the arm n legs. If you have any tutorial on this i would really appreaciate it. Keep up the AMAZING work. :thumbsup:

Many thanks for your comments and critics.I`ll take them seriously into consideration.I had a look at yourr site and your work,that`s really great stuff you got there mate.Seems as if we live in the same world.I really love your style too.You seems to know pretty lots of stuffs in american comics. Keep it up mate.

Hey dude,you are only 14 and you draw like that. You`re a little genius man.Can`t imagine what you`ll be in some years time mate.My only advice for nice muscles drawing is to first of all referece yourself on site like :

http://www.fineart.sk/ (http://www.fineart.sk/)
http://www.3d.sk/ (http://www.3d.sk/)

They are many other references like the Andrew loomis book which is the best according to me.First of all draw from real life, then try to develop your own style.But remember that though reference is very important, practice is even more.There`s no magic potion for that.Just draw draw and draw.One last thing, just like jaques de fontaine said :Observation is the key mate.

I am now posting another one done in 2002.It`s our good old Spidey:wise:.Hope you like it.
thanks you all.

Hey dean, I've been busy the last few days playing around with Flash. I wish I had more time to do this because since I joined cgtalk I've been so motivated to just move forward with this. Unfortunately real life is keeping me in check and I only have so many hours in the day.

For Dynasty, one thing that helped me learn to draw muscles is bodybuilding magazines and referencing magazines/pictures of pro bodybuilders is very helpful when trying to draw superheros. While the comic books have existed for years these days there are living humans that look like that! You can just use the internet and browse www.flexonline.com (http://www.flexonline.com) and get amazing reference pics but the magazine coverage is better. Even if you don't want to draw your heros so muscular it helps a great deal to know how muscles fit under the skin in general.

Anyways, I'll post a few other things up before the end of the week. Some of it is older work. I really want to use more Flash on my website though and I'm thinking about how to redesign it and that will eat away at any time I have for actual new art right now.

Why are there 3 (almost) the same replies? Wanted to edit your post, but accidentally posted new replies?

I have to agree tough, Dean is a verry talented artist, I think many people wish to have his skills
