Got my scanner today....wooo!
First one is a character design for the main character of a sort of dystopian steampunk fairy tale I'm working on. She doesn't have a name yet.
Yes, I know the wrinkles are a bit excessive around her top
Second one is Alan Gerrard and the Ragman, post apocalyptic western heroes.
Can you tell I have a taste for unusal genres?
My friend scanned these for me, so I'm sorry if they're a little poor. The second image, I don't know what happened. He appeared to start darkening part of it and then decided halfway through he would stop and scan it in.
Here is some more stuff from that fantasy idea I have rolling around my head.
Better reference pic for my BT character Sin:
Comments/critiques are welcome. I have been drawing for about 3-4 years now in earnest. I draw a lot of my influence from anime/manga, real life, and most of my inspiration from ideas that pop up in my head.
...Scanners are awesome.
I mean, I guess it would be one thing if he was a professional (or at least competent) inker, but he clearly is not. I would have ripped him a new one.
Your work is pretty okay. Your anatomy is decent enough but your poses seem really forced, especially the girl's. Also her feet look really weird.
I like the idea of a cowboy teamed up with a giant robot scarecrow too.
Some anatomy issues on the first one though. Her neck seems crazy long and something is bugging me about her right arm. It maybe too long too. Oh, and her cleavage....go look at some porn man cause it's horrific.
The second one is a bit too rough to crit, especially with the half-assed, half-done inking.
Keep it up.
Yeah - the first drawing has perspective in it, but that's not immediately apparent. I suppose I should have exageratted more.
I have a tendency to like to draw characters in awkard poses - don't know why.
My hands also end up looking pretty abominable. That's actually what I'm working on improving right now - the fingers are too long (and too thick) o;
And yes, I'm a little irked that he started to draw over my art. He did ask me if he could darken it first, but by darken, I didn't mean add new lines. There was actually stuff in there - extraneous folds and stuff - that I had to edit out in photoshop ):
Got my scanner today! Epson perfection V100. Looks swanky, can't wait to hook it up. Expect arts inbound
EDIT: Oh, and btw, I really ought to get a scanner as well, since I don't really do any digital art, and my dad took the scanner that used to be in the house, to his office. Dang.

The anatomy is just off everywhere. Neck is too long, arms are too bumpy, hands are lumpy and twisted, the breast look flatt even though they make the belt buckles come out a lot more than they should, the waste area is too small/bending in the wrong way, and the legs are huge.
The faces could also use some work. The nose and mouth are too low, and the jaw is oddly shadped.
The costum on the top one is hella random. I mean, goggles? come on.
I like goggles ;_;
Yeaaah. I know my human anatomy is a little off, but I'm not trying to draw from life, you know. Still, it does need some work ):
Honestly, the "style" in which you drew the girl is a more realistic style, so you don't get as much leeway in terms of distortion. Uncanny valley, and all that.
And goggles ARE cool, but only if you're Tank Girl.
The girl is in an aesome pose though! Plus I like how you draw hair. It's detailed yet simplistic.
I'm afraid - I didn't have time to clean up the images so maybe it's something I erased and the scanner is picking up?
Yeah, you've got me. I do need to work on anatomy - generally my proportions are pretty ok nowadays, but I suck at drawing 3/4 perspective bodies.
Thanks for the crits.
I need to go look at some more male muscle anatomy - I draw too many women.
