My goal is to create awesome webcomics about amazing sci-fi and fantasy worlds. I'm excited to be here learning with ya'll!

This one took me a while. I don't think I'll do each assignment three times from here on out. I think it would be better if I run through the course a few times. I was having difficulty understanding what I'm seeing on the model. If I have a descent understanding of everything the second time I repeat this course I think that will help more than trying to master each part before moving onto the next one. Open to critiques.

I've started a second page of these and I'm getting a bit tired. Not sure what I'm getting wrong. I think perspective and proportions is still off. I'm going to continue doing 1 or 2 a day. hopefully something will click. Open to critique. So I've taken Jaoa Bogo advice and separated out the ones I think are the best. I don't want to waste anyone's time. I still think there is value in posting everything if someone wants to look through them.

I don't think I'm in a position to offer a class on the subject atm but I do have an interest in mechs. I've been drawing them since I was a kid. Gundams can be pretty challenging. For the technical skills you'll need to study perspective and some anatomy. For the design you'll want study the gundams you like to understand the design language then focus on taking inspiration from real world things like armors, robotics, or other subjects you want to Gundamify. I wouldn't mind starting a study group on this subject where we set up challenges and critiques.

Very nice job on the rendering! It might help if we knew exactly what you want critiques on, what your goal was, and/or what you feel is lacking. I think you might want to study proportions of the skull a bit more and spend a little bit more time in the layout phase. Keep up the great work!

Crtiques welcome, found the orgination of the lower portion of the oblique hard to visualise without drawing the entire ribcage. The last image was done after watching the examples, everytihng else was drawn before.

These look great! If you're having difficulty visualizing something try breaking it down into different 3d shapes. Try inventing the shapes yourself then go out and see what other artist do.

I've been drawing quicksketchs focusing on gesture for a while now, but I can't really grasp where have been failing on. I can tell when a pose is stiff or weird but I don't know why.

I think you are going in the right direction. Start with those stick figure that curve and follow the motion, like the third 1min sketch you did, then build the forms off of that. Also doing a few 30 second sketches will force you to loosen up. Keep it up!

Hello everyone, these are 2-minute gesture drawings I've done for the past couple of days. I feel like they're a bit on the cartoony side and not that realistic/proportional. The way I drew these was by starting with the robo bean and then attaching the limbs.  Do I need to learn anatomy in conjunction with figure drawing to make my drawings look more realistic/proportional? Or should I just focus on figure drawing for now and worry about anatomy further down the line?

If you want your drawings to look more realistic then anatomy will help a lot. I'd suggest studying simple shapes first. That will make it a lot easier for you to simplify what you're seeing.

I´m very happy with this one :) I found it difficult to design the wrinkles of the thumb´s knuckle. If you have any tips, feel free to share.

I think studying things like fabrics will help with wrinkles. It's all really the same thing.

Hello! I drew 10 figures and... well. Time was really a problem, I guess I was still too focused on contour and proportions. I’ll try to do better tomorrow (when I practice again). All of them were 2min drawings, and I couldn’t complete one because I lacked enough space for it (dumb me, I should’ve drawn that on another page). Comparing the 1st to the last, I think I’ve gotten better :). I also attached some references here (sorry I couldn’t attach all of them, the maximum files I can add are 10). Thanks in advance for anyone who critiques my drawings.

You're doing great. I'd suggested drawing a stick figures, not super straight stick figure but one that curves with the shape/motion of the body, then build the forms off of that. If you want to work on your speed you'll want to do this exercise a few minutes to an hour every day. Using video recordings of modeling sessions like Croquis Cafe https://vimeo.com/channels/1300087 are great way to improve.
