Yeah, I suck at making titles so random and pointless. Anyways, I thought I would jump in critique is always a good thing and very important to an growing artist. Well here's some recent W.I.P's:

#1: An drawing of one of my OCs Robby.Feeling regret and sadness over killing the baby bears mother. In My story for him Robby and the baby bear become friends for a lifetime.

#2: An drawing of the same OC as above, I was just practicing portraits.

#3: Ok I started drawing this one because I told my mom that I can't draw cute things. That every time I try it turns out ugly and deformed. So she to do it anyway and draw a cute animal for her. So far I'm not sure how I feel about this drawing yet.....But whatever.

#4: A drawing I started a long time ago and found floating around in my hard drive. So I decided to go ahead and try to finish it.

Brother bear?

The last one is actually cute, IMO.

Well, The story arch is far reaching past the relationship between Robby and the baby bear ( In which I called berry, I forget to mention that). Even though the relationship is still important, I guess the best comparison for berries role in the story, would be Appa from avatar the last airbender.

.......... And I'm glad it's cute, Yay !!!

I think my favourite would have to be #4, especially with the soft-shading.

While very cool, you shouldn't embed images that are not safe for work on the forum. The forums don't have filters like the main site.

Yes linking them is fine. I do think they're very awesome, please don't get me wrong! I enjoy seeing sculpts. It's something I'm trying to take some time to learn as well.

Here's a digital sketch I did to past the time. It's of my to OC characters Robby Vayne and His animal friend Berry the bear. I've been trying to create a good character moment between them to help show their friendship. BTW, I was think about sticking in one my sister's characters (of the same world) giggling in the background.

#1, No Berry!:

I finally have something tow to you involving my Game: Truavaina (working Title), I'm making for my college senior project. I have started on the animations and have been able to finnish the idle, and the walking animations. One thing big that I had to do though is delete my old terrain and make one with unity's terrain system. It was kind of sad but I think it is for the better. I still have to make more assets to fill the environment, like more kinds of foliage, trees, sound FX for nature noises, particles with alien insects flying around. NPC creatures that are harmless to the player etc.... So yeah it's kind of bare bones right now.

Anyways, here are my screen Shots:

Interesting! The only problem I see is those bushes really need to vary it up. There also seems to be some repetition in the trees too that need to be varied up a bit.

While here's another zbrush sculpt for my creature class. For this 2nd assignment we had to do an quadruped with mostly natural animal anatomy (no human anatomy) with minimal fantasy elements. Because its to practice and show your knowledge of animal anatomy. I decided to do this guy, Critique all you wane :) !!

Oh, I have a few other traditional drawings I will post soon.....

While here's a quick update of my character moment drawing for my OCs Berry and Robbie Vayne. The previous Wip was on the last page, just in case you want to compare. I really worked hard on fixing allot of the issues with the painting. Still more to fix, but hey I did once hear that " art is never finished".

Drawing your own hands are very hard, I used to do it a lot but I haven't for a really long time now (been drawing more animals the people). You did a great job getting all the folds and creases of the skin. The first drawing though, the fore finger seems a bit off, I think its because it should be a bit straighter at the tip until the second joint, but you have given it quite a bend there. Other then that I think they look great

Thanks sam, I agree it could be hard to draw your own hands. I couldn't quite keep them still enough. So it was hard to draw them correctly, which btw is what I think happened too that finger being drawn incorrectly. We'll always I jhave just a few things to post today so here it goes !!!

#1: OC: Toshema Sketch Wip: This started as a basic I'm not sure what to with my self sketch and kind of just drew. I thought to my self " Hey this actually looks like something .." Even though I was just kind of loosing scribbling. Always, I kind of like how the gray tones form shapes, and using those shapes to build up the drawing. Very different than my usual approach of drawing quick lines to form loose volumes then building to shapes. I think I'll do it this way more often.
