Welcome! I just started doing studies myself hahaha, you'd be surprised how much you improve once you start. You've definitely got some talent and creativity, man! Keep it up :)

Nice silhouettes, really digging those. They look quite strong. Shapes are like half the battle.

I'd study your perspective a bit more. It's a bit off in your vehicles.

And yes, I agree, do more studies. Many more. So many you want to punch yourself in the face because you are replaying how you drew the last study in your head over and over again. And then some more until you don't know what day it is and you need to get up for work. OK, maybe that's a little much but you get my point.

Overall, good start. But yes, work on your studies.

Hello Ahmad, as for your last sketch, i think you know yourself what to do with it. Just take some reference images of a male torso and
draw draw draw... keep it up! I like your colored thumbnails quite a bit! keep these up!

Loosen up dude, i can see how are you stiff when you're drawing just by looking your work... do lots and lots of quick gesture drawings to loosen up before actual work, it will help you a lot... but on the other side i really like you use of color :)

Hey Sin, quick question... how can you see that he still has to loosen up a bit? I'm curious. :)
maybe I can learn something out of that.
Look closely. Can you really See?!

Hey there.

I can see your values getting better. Work on simplifying them even more.

Upper- the warrior looks good. The other pieces look kinda flat, in the 3rd drawingthe craft with the afterburners looks outta place, kinda like it was cut out of a magazine and glued there, the castles are kinda pale and no point of interest. Nothing to hold the eye very long, that goes

For all except the warrior :ugeek:
