nice drawings tim! I like the 1st 2nd last the most. The one of ryoko seems a bit weird to me though, with her head. Great work as far as I can see, I don't know enough of lineart to give any good comment other then,, keep up your good work :]
Lol, what I meant by taking an hour is that for an hour's work, they sure don't show it. I'm sure everyone will hate me, considering I'm the odd man out, but I don't think they're all that great at all. They're decent, sure, but for the time you spent on them, I would expect them to be far better. Like I said, it seems like your copying something, and trying too hard. They arent proportioned that well, either. Just get a good idea of what the character looks like from all angles and draw a pose freehand.
No one would hate you for saying that..but you must understand that if I say it is an hour's work, it doesnt mean I worked constantly on it for 1 full hour.
The ryoko picture for example, I was drawing that at my friend Brandon's house while we were surfing the net and he was talking to his gf. We were doing other things and I did not draw it all in an hour's time.. I had drawn it spiratically while other things were going on..
Also you must take into consideration that I do line-art..meaning I dont really sketch. And everyone has a different speed in drawing.
sparr, why judge a piece on time..... just consider the final result. just because some1 spends alot or a lil time on something doesnt mean anything. the reasons u gave do not do jutice to his drawingat all.
Well of course time involves the production of work. The more time you spend, the better the result, unless your aren't satisfied, and you give up. But Tim, I dont sketch details either, I just draw the outline flat out as well. Im just saying I've never seen anyone spend more time than an hour on something, and it not turn out like a photograph.
