I believe it's time for me to start my own thread :) A little bit about me, before we start? (feel free to skip the following and sashay on over to the pretty pictures). My name is Sebastian, I live in Asuncion, Paraguay. Just turned 18, i am the eldest of 5 kids. I have always enjoyed drawing, but i have recently begun to take it more seriously, and i'm making an effort to improve.
I will be posting somewhat irregularly for the time being, 'cause i'm supposed to be studying my ass off. Hopefully i'll have more time next month, so i can start with a 'pic a day' sort of deal. Most of the posts will be pencil/pen on paper and either scanner or phone pic (i'm well within the 'lazy' category)... Aaanywho, opinions and critique are very much appreciated - my goal here is to improve.

Heres a real quick one of an Asian dude chillin on the pier. I plan on coloring this one someday (when i actually sit down and learn how.)

Pretty cool man, I would have liked to work with you in the art contest if you weren't so busy with schoolwork. I like the pier picture you drew, but the characters you posed need some work proportionally. They seem a bit flat as well.

Here's a concept I scribbled before I was given a new partner, if you wanna check it out.

yeah proportions are way off on the dude on the right. his legs were actually shorter, cause i was trying for a certain cartoony style i see a lot these days, but then decided it looked silly and photoshopped for a bit to make his legs longer. not nearly enough, as it turned out. And about the flat thing, any ideas on how to get it right? maybe stronger shadows on the edges will do the trick...
Oh beauty was going to be pretty (: i can't for the life of me draw pretty faces. Too bad we couldnt do the thing, it kinda feels like we had an abortion ):

you've got know how on how to make a given effect witch works, what doesn't work is the pose and per-portions of the characters, dem legz be whickety whack yo, they're so stubby and awkwardly placed, never fear, I do not persecute you, your art is decent enough for me to not hate it (or in some cases laugh my ass off at) but action must be taken to better yourself.

The most effective and possibly and arguably and relatively the least time consuming is to study the human body by doing that all so lovely life drawing everyone seems to go on about, seriously, its mutually agreed to be the best course of action by many of the forum regulars so keep it in mind. How you go about life drawing is exactly what it says on the tin, you draw life, reality as it comes, not live reality but pictures and stills from live action movies, give it a crack see what happens, do something you like but no cheating or you get an F in this course and expelled.

Thank you Ella :) i'm looking forward to your submissions.. Here are some more lines - it was supposed to be a pirate, but came out looking exactly like fucking Naruto -_- i thought proportions came out slightly better, but the hips are still too low.. I'll get it right next time. As always, thoughtful feedback and critique are appreciated, so if anyone can be bothered to take the time, please don't hesitate.

thought i'd share some WIP.. decided to go ahead and color this fucker. This is my second ever attempt at coloring.. first one is right here. Laying down some base, but i figure i'll wait for a tablet before i try to do the shading-lighting... any advice from veteran artists will be greatly appreciated, i want to know if im on the right track.

more work in progress. I was.. well.. let's just say something reminded my of natalie portman, which reminded my of one of my all-time favorite films - Luc Besson's "The professional" with Jean Reno.. i was compelled to scratch up something of the like.
These lines come from a crappy phone pic. i'll scan the drawing tomorrow and get cleaner lines from that. By the way, whats the best technique to get smooth lineart from a pencil/pen scan? i'm more than a little lost in that respect /:

The way I would practice is just draw poses. Just do it. I have been doing it for a bit, and I feel just a little bit more confident about my art, but as I draw more comics, practice or not, I feel that poses may just come naturally in a relatively short time, considering I will have to force myself to draw different poses.


The time for making a webcomic is now..Introducing...

Here's something.. Loosely based on a character from the anime series Bleach. It was a huge hollow, don't recall its name. Slowly gaining confidence to color stuff in PS. I'm having trouble with the background though - the character seems pasted on, it doesn't really fit. maybe the style is just too different? don't want to add it to my userpage until I fix that.
