I wonder what other Dead or Alive character I should draw next? Anyone have any suggestions? Possible favorite video game characters you want me to draw? I'll do it, too, just so you know.

Firstly, don't just bump your art thread with an unnecessary post like this. This could have easily been tacked onto your previous post which had artwork, but just posting a little text blurb like this does nothing other than show your need for attention.

Secondly, all of your drawings look the same. Sure the clothing may be a little different, but they all have the same figure, shape and proportions. All the women have identical bodies, and if you weren't making a point to distinguish them by name in the post, I probably wouldn't be able to tell they were all any different. There's no personality, no character, nothing to distinguish them all. You seriously need to start doing some research and practice on figure drawing or else you're going to be stuck drawing the same thing over and over and over again.

Alright well either way the areas you need to improve on really do fall into the stuff people say all of the time, you need to work on things like anatomy, poses, faces and mixing up the way your characters work. So far this thread has mostly logos or character drawings, sketches no less, there snot a lot to say about them. If you did more complete compositions with backgrounds, foregrounds, action etc people would have more to critique because there would be more in general. My philosophy on art threads is just draw things, post up your sketches and finished works and that is it. People don't want to see anything without an image attached. If you need help with a drawing post your wip, describe what you want to accomplish and hope someone drops in with some advice. My art thread is currently at 20 something pages and on the most recent 3 pages I believe there are 4 posts not from me. Art threads don't get a ton of love it doesn't mean you're terrible or people are ignoring you its just the way it is on this site.
if some of this post makes no sense I apologize, I'm on my phone.

1) More body types.

2) Different faces.

3) More identifying marks.

Got it.

I have a simple request which I ask a lot of people with a similar style to help them vary things up;

Draw an old man, and start from the nose.


A rather disgusting-looking git that should have been disposed of ages ago.

I could do that sometime soon, but I just finished something, so I'm all arted out for now. I'll do it tomorrow, as a sketch specifically for this thread, though.

Don't ask to be scouted. And the portal already has more than enough generic junky hentai.

The lines you are making to represent a different tonal value unfortunately reinforces a sense of flatness due to how each line touches the end of one boundary straight to the next.
You either need to do a straight fill, or use proper hatching and cross-hatching to represent the surface and depth of whatever you're drawing.

.......

Nearly everyone who is a regular in this Art Forum has spent a great amount of time giving you golden advice on how to improve. Put it into consideration that that time could have been spent on other people, especially newcomers. People who hopefully would appreciate the advice when they receive it.

You show your gratitude by promising an estimated time of improvement.
No one can gauge when it will come but we know when you delay it. Again.

So please, apply what I have said and everything else that has been said to you before.

Pose study, like I said I would do.

My emphasis was on female combat poses, and yeah, I did these without references. So, sorry if they're a little sloppy.

Your lines are too hairy try to have a single line encompass a whole limb. You want to represent the whole body in motion not play connect-the-dots.
There is no need for signatures when you're doing studies it's not a piece.

Yeah, I know. It's a bad habit of mine whenever I try to sketch. I didn't do a pose study yesterday, so I'm going to post right sketches next time I upload more stuff here. I feel like doing these studies will help me improve a little bit at a time.

I recently thought I'd be more serious about drawing and brush up on my own anatomy, I started doing gesture drawings, and I whole-heartedly recommend it!

A gesture drawing is a 30-120 second drawing from reference. The idea is you don't have time to analyze every part of the body - but you have just enough time to sketch down the fundamental idea. Here's two sites with different functions. Doing 30 minutes of gestures every day is a great habit for improving over time!

Combat Pose Study # 2

I think I'm getting really good at this. I just need to do more of this and study more poses, and in weeks, I might improve. I have a good feeling about doing these. After a week of this, I am going to draw a full character to see if I have improved. Or Hell, I might even fill out those gauges with some characters duking it out. Might give me some good practice with backgrounds, too.

This is how far done I am so far with this project. I need to make a background first off, and then figure out what poses I want to use. As for backgrounds, does anyone have any suggestions? Something natural perhaps? I'm thinking of a meadow or a forest, but I might also make a beach (I'm really good at those), or maybe at the edge of a cliff?
