Well I am new here and can see that the quality here is wery high!
So here is a couple of drawings in Black/White from the last couple of days. I am trying to get a better understanding for light and expressions.
Please tell me what you think and what I should practise harder.
I will be updating everyday.

Ps about 1h on each

Im pretty sure you are only supposed to post one piece per wip thread, but other than that
here are some tips:

understructure, unless you are one of the lucky few who dont need it lack of understructure will hinder any of us who are not geniuses.

in all of your drawings the charachters fingers are either big and clunky, or an icecream scoop with lines drawn acrossed it.

hands: try breaking them down into cylinders one for each section of the hand. or try using cubes to break down the hands one for the palm two for the thumb and three for each of the fingers.

drawing specific crits:
1st drawing:lookin good its got alot of energy in the pose. **clunky fingers**

2nd drawing:the pose is sort of.. meh.. but you took a nice angle on it so it still holds some interest. **scoop fingers**

3rd drawing:his head is too long his arms are in wierd positions, and are kindof merging with the chest, making the chest look flat and dimentionless, the angle is boring, overall I would say this drawing needs alot of work. personally I would scrap it and start over.**scoop fingers**

4th drawing:her arm is a little big and stiff... even if it is a mech arm.... it just doesnt look good on her. either make the arm mor fluid and matching with the charachter or make the charachter struggle to cope with the arm. like make it so heavy it effects her balance, like she has to really try to keep this peice of outdated crap from dragging on the ground.**no fingers**

time for me to sleep,
good luck man you have alot of potential.

Thank you for the pointers, I seriously do need to practice on hands.. Its damn hard.
These are not wip for each picture. You give me critiques on what I do wrong and I will preactise that one next picture :)

Thanks again but would like to hear what you got to say about the others as well. :)

Oh man,

I love the little dog (its a dog right?) with the two swords! Awesome. Lots of attitude on the guy. Keep at it, you've got a great start.

I'd say there's quite a range of stuff here. Some really good, others ok, and a couple not so good.
I think the best ones are the first and last. Nice compositions and poses and nice polish on the last one.
I think you should toss the one of the fat guy - it doesn't fit in with the rest in relation to content, and it's just not a pretty picture. It doesn't show your skill.
The dragon/demon ones are pretty decent, but a bit lacking in drama I think. Dragons/demons should look and feel powerful and awe inspiring, and I think you got a bit of that, but not enough. The composition of the one with the moon is cool, but his pose really makes him look small and weak.
The bunny one is great :) I think it just needs more - bigger, more detail, something. Have you heard of the game Lugaru? It's a shareware fighting game where you play a martial arts rabbit - pretty cool (and a bit funny, like your drawing). You can see more about it at I think it's Mac only.
I'd also agree with bonkanailios on his specific drawing comments (for drawings 1-4).
