Default Chib's Sketchbook, criticism needed!

Hey my name is chib.

I love drawing but for some reason or another I have neglected my Sketchbook over the last year and a half. I am from this point in time making a conscious decision to regularly draw and improve as an artist.

After failing to gain any inspiration from doing nothing all summer (surprise) I decided to look up Polykarbon. I remembered the site from ages ago when it had the tutorials and such, that's how I stumbled upon this forum. After looking over the sketchbook board all night and been amazed by the majority of the work on here I decided I should join up and start a sketchbook of my own, maybe this way I will improve and gain enough motivation to stick at it.

Anyway, here are some pages that I scanned in today. They are all fairly old, but I have in no way progressed since doing them. Criticism is more than welcome, after all that's the point.

(Just a few faces, from reference)

(and more ZOMBIES!)

Worthy or not just post them ;P we like to see how you're improving. It also helps us to figure out what we should be encouraging you to work on. Right now just keep posting, it's all really rather interesting

Default Update!

Was finally able to get my hands on a scanner, so here are some more sketches. I haven't done any drawings from the "Bridgman's Complete Guide to Drawing from Life", yet. I'm not sure how exactly I'm meant to use it, should I copy straight out of it or should I just use it as reference?


(Just playing with watercolours again)


(Some random sketches arranged awkwardly )

(This is first comic I have completed for my University newspaper, I tried to keep it visually simple as I am unsure how well it will translate on to the actual page.)

Well that is all for now. As before, all criticism is welcome and appreciated.
