I like the sketchy one with all the lines better! But thats just sort of my preference. Sometimes i think that style can really work for people and make the drawing better but sometimes it ruins it so you gotta be careful.
It's good that you have a good amount of traditional art and digital art experience too! I got to much into digital art and now i forgot how to do digital stuff (when i use a pencil on paper ill be thinking in my head 'CTRL+Z'!!! to undo the mistakes but then ill remember i have to erase it like a caveman)

Well, I always *start* with traditional tools. I only ink and color digitally. I have a very hard drawing directly digitally. Since I have a fair amount of practice, though, I blame that on my tablet. Stupid, small tablet! Totally not me! Either ways, there's not much chance of me forgetting how to pencil :D

But thanks for the comment. It's nice to see someone drop by that isn't Coos :P

I really like the the face you did in the top right corner of the last one. Its really well defined and has some intensity in my opinion.

also lol @ "erasing like a caveman". x3

Updates are getting more sparse at an exponential rate. Partially because I draw less overall, partially because I do fewer "finished" (inked & colored) pieces, partially because I can't be bothered to upload stuff at all. I'm really saddened by my own lack of motivation. Like, I've been sitting on the piece below for a month, without even uploading it to deviant art.

Image

It's a character, a bounty hunter, from an RP scenario I designed. Originally supposed to have the illustration on the character sheet, but the scenario was done and played aaaages ago. Think this pic has been in the works for more than half a year. Still have three other characters, at a more sketchy stage, which I probably won't finish. Now for some sketches and stuff.

Image

A random sketch where I used some of Coos style's elements. Thought it worked rather well. Is Coos even around anymore?

Image

ERMAHGERD ITSAWOMAEN. I don't draw females a lot. It just doesn't interest me that much. I think there's something inherently masculine about the things I like to draw, and thus, the subjects also tend to be male. I was rather surprised, almost proud how this random sketch managed just to portray 'some girl', in a sort of tranquil pose, not an amazonian or anything.

Image
For the last two years or so, though, I've been focusing a lot on drawing muscles and actiony poses/scenes. So yeah, more men. This is one of the early ones. Breaking the chain that holds the sack still looks unrealistic to my eyes, though it's also awesome, I think.

Image

SOME MUSCLES. This, and the next one, is drawn with ballpoint pen, which might explain their sketchyness. I really prefer it for quick sketches. You have to suck it up and eat your mistakes, and you don't have to worry about smearing and shit. Like, the hand wasn't bloodied originally, it's just a way to cover up me fucking up the hand.

Image

I think I used a reference for this one. Been drawing a lot of poses of UFC fighters and whatever, and in turn trying to extrapolate what makes for good action shots and draw original stuff too. Most of this stuff is so loose, crappy sketching it's not worth uploading though. One important thing I've learned though:

An important part of dynamic action shots is unstable poses. If you draw someone launching themselves forward, it's going to look stiff and awkward if you draw it like they're standing on the ground in a pose they could hold without falling down. You have to draw them in a way that captures them in the transition from one stance to another, an uneasy pose, that they won't be having just a moment later. Legs and arms all over the place, back twisted or hunched forward or back. Stuff like that. It's hard to explain. Like, if you draw a punch with power in, the character should be learning forward enough that they would fall over if they don't move their legs. Perhaps it's just a matter of placing the character's gravity center away from their legs.

Another thing that helps, is twisting the hips and shoulders, preferably in opposite directions, along either axis. When a person is standing relaxed, both shoulders and hips makes a straight line. Often not when in motion. Lowering the shoulder is a great way to emphasize an uppercut, twisting the entire torso in the aftermath a punch shows body weight was put into the blow. Something like that.

Anyways, that's it for this time. I guess at this rate I'll post next time in 2016. Or I might shut the thread down. I'm tired of updating in multiple places. Though on the other hand, I'm starved from exposure, and at least there are people who know who I am here... Hrumm...

Your first finished piece looks the best over all.
What I'm concerned about is your lack of motivation.
You act as if you're draw for anyone but yourself.
I've drawn tons of stuff without uploading it simply because it was for fun.
Now as for the poses i would keep using the references you're using but you need to focus on how your muscles look.
Also in number 2 and 3 your poses look extremely stiff.
If you want get better with your manly drawings I would recommend you get some books from Bridgman.
He goes into detail on human musculature too.

Well, yeah, I draw tons of stuff that I don't upload. I have a stack of some fifty sketches by my desk, drawn over the last couple months. But while drawing is fun and it's own reward and yadda yadda, it's also an expressive medium. The ultimate point of it is to share, if you ask me. When I started out, I wanted to make a webcomic. That was the entire reason I practiced, why I could push through the extremely bad stuff I started out with. I don't want do that anymore, so I have no real motivation to get better. When I practice, I do it for the sake of practicing, not to get better so I can do X. And that's simply less motivational.

Then make a goal for yourself.
Find a point of drawing you want to be able to do and aim for it.
If you want to try telling stories animation is good.

Cool drawing, but seems like there are still have some mistake
I think you should try to copy some pose on comic or manga, it'll help you improve a lot
then, draw again, with sketch, like the last work, but use circle for each part of the body, not only the straight line, like this:

There was a half-year period there I pretty much drew nothing at all, even though I had all the time in the world, seeing as I was    not    working on my bachelor. Fuck me. Trying to get into the full color stuff by keeping the subjects in my comfort zone:

Eyes (forgot to resize, stretch thread)

and 3/4 portraits of

Guys

You have to get out of your comfort zone veg.
I do like this though.
The color of the skin is nice and the hair is well done.
Some of the muscles in the neck are too small though.
The right eye doesn't meet up with the nose as well.
What I suggest to help get you out of your comfort zone is to do some gesture drawings.
Do about 50 a day and those will warm you up for drawing full body poses.
The gestures will take about 30 to 60 seconds each so it won't take that long.

The basic idea is that I can draw stuff in my comfort zone, or not at all. Coloring + inking something with a tricky pose or whatever is a long, arduous process and still often end up looking like shit, so it's pretty demotivating. Gesture drawing is not a bad idea though, do you have a good resource for plowing through poses, or would you just do it reference-less. Not gonna do fiddy a day tho, that's a job, not fun.

Also, could you elaborate on what you mean by the muscles in the neck? I only emphasized what google tells me is the Sternocleidomastoid muscle, and it doesn't look too small to me.

Thanks for dropping by, Morph.

I use Pixel lovely for my gestures.
http://artists.pixelovely.com/practice- ... e-drawing/
I would start off with the small classes and work your way into the 30 second gestures.
I would strongly avoid doing anything reference less.
Even when drawing something like a bug it always comes out better when you study it first.
For more info use this fantastic tutorial.

The Sternocleidomastoid also takes up a little more space then you have drawn.

I made a Space Opera roleplaying scenario recently, which I illustrated a bit.

More a practice in design than in general drawing, though the ship perspective wasn't easy. As always, the key to cool looking stuff is details, multitudes of shapes.

Nice headshot designs, and spaceship design for that matter. I really need to learn to draw ships and robots and such...

Yeah, they're pretty fun. Not that tricky to draw, but hard to design so they look interesting. Started out just putting squares on top of each other... I should do a full-on, colored shaded robot or mecha one of these days...

I like the design of the spaceship and my favorite alien from that last drawing was the one with the flaming head, or is he totally made out of fire except for the stuff he's wearing? Either way he looks cool.
