I had an art thread once before but I stopped posting art there. I think it got locked because I stopped drawing for a while, so I decided to make a new one :) Doodling/sketching is two of the many things I love to do. My art has no topic, I will post random pictures.

Please tell me what you think.

Do you accept amusing faces as criticism?

I haven't really thought of a name for the face. I'm think "are you freakin' serious?"

Oh, and the sketch you posted is excellent. Looks like the kind of graphite sketches I do.

That one's good too, but you didn't shade it. The spiderhand is more professional but this one is more interesting. Keep them coming.

Really good but it looks like you changed it a bit. Either that or I just cannot tell from the online pics of the book.

Yay art! I hope you keep posting more.

First one looks good. The far back finger looks oddly rectangular, you didn't have that problem anywhere else. The pinkie isn't showing, which is possible, but that would be a rather awkward and unnatural pose. The lines are big and bold, and I don't see many areas where they look sketchy.

You are doing a fine job recreating the cover. I think her rear end could be a little more robust, but just slighty. That would give you the curve of the back of the dress. Also in the back, the bottom portion of the dress connects to the middle portion in a different way than what shows up on the cover. But you might not be trying to perfectly replicate the cover, that's cool. My only suggestion then would be to clean up the line work, especially near the bottom of the dress.

I eye copied this wolf from my laptop. (Not a smart idea, it took long and I had bloodshot eyes afterwards as a consequence haha :/ ) Here is the link to the image http://images.nationalgeographic.com/wp … 0x450.jpg.

Here is my drawing.

My tip for wolves and other furry critters: pay close attention to the direction of the fur. A general rule for fur is the it flows from head to tail.

It looks like you hatched your pencil strokes on your wolf; that's the right technique. Just remember to check if your pencil strokes are flowing in the proper direction. That'll really give the impression of fur.

Keep up the good work.
