sophiew-thank you and will do!
lionheartgfx-thank you very much, as for a tutorial...maybe? i mean im not so sure my process is the best way but when i refine it sure!
petej-thanks...if i wrote it was a study or i used ref than yes its from a photo otherwise its imagination
boxofsecrets-thanks and ill get on it!
pierce-yeah i noticed i do that a lot, ill try and break the habit!
some vehicle sketches
Dude your women are just... wow. Especially the first one on #384. Back to the drawing board...
Long time no see.. love the improvements in your work :D
Great stuff, sir. Some really nice understanding of anatomy here. Beautiful brush strokes as well. Maybe we could trade secrets some time!
You have some really nice character designs in here. Keep it up and don't forget about the environments :p I'll keep peeking in here from time to time.
your vehicle sketch has nice shapes and design. ;D just one advice, be more precise with the shapes in perspective. for example the front part has a halftone on one half, which means shape is round, but other half is flat color, which means is flat plane. so the consistency is important : )) keep it up!!
GREAT colours. This has really come together, you've used your strengths in your lovely stylistic colouring and here it has worked 100%. A really really fantastic piece!!! I would consider going back to this piece and putting those all important finishing touches and perhaps instead of avoiding hair, you should tackle the problem head on.

Consider this on your next works, ask yourself questions about the colour ie how saturated is it and how dark is it and how cool is the the colour? Sometimes just the saturation of a colour can be used to emphasise the change along a plane. As soon as you arrive at a new plane when shading/colouring your form, you must figure out what the change is, value, tone (warm/cool) or saturation (chroma).
When you have a photo ref you clearly understand this sense of thinking and apply it very well but now you must understand why colour is effecting the objects in such way, so that when you are shading and colouring your concepts, you can apply this theory and make them come just as alive.
Well done of course, your work is spectacular and has a wonderful style and it is far better than what I could achieve at this moment in time.
Hope this helps and I'm making sense.
Really great designs and ideas! Keep it working out)
wow the vehicle stuff is very well done! you seem well rounded!
Thanks for visiting! Keep up the hard work :)
Thanks for stopping by my page Kevin, i really appreciate it. Great characters man, anatomy seems to be intact. Keep 'em coming.
Hugging and holding tight to your dreams is what you are doing
at this moment, and what you did before. The building got full of admirers and the temperature
is just right to feel the heat. Caliente impressions and understanding of focused molecular adjustments.
You pushed the technical and emotional side of your creations at the same time. Steamed windows,
and majestic flowers covered in a bucket with a blanket. I truly feel the energy of your concepts
and the vibrant radiation of your every artistic move. Feeling like a little kid, I observe your
strong roots, leading back even to the oldest times, maybe even when the oceans were filled with blood.
The disco floor is lit now, and the time for you to perform again is here. Lots of improvements,
action and satisfaction, a full tribe of vegetarian ogres infront of a big decision. You are
calibrating the artistic liberation inflow, in a right and correct manner.
Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook! Your values and rendering skills both motivated me and tore my confidence apart :P
I actually enjoyed going through your sketchbook! Keep it up!
ozark-haha thanks, i do like drawing them ladies but i need to get some more guys in my portfolio :b
nickodemus-thanks and that would be great!
jondawo-thanks and im kinda lacking a lot of enviro work so ill make sure to bump out some more!
pontuseuxinus-thanks and ill make sure to fix what you mentioned!
kateyparr-thank you very much for the advice! i know when it comes to areas that i am weak in it is best to tackle it head on and i will make sure to do that more often!about the colors i think i get what you mean, i know my colors aren't the best but i am still learning.
reptile-thank you, i wouldnt say that since i suck with environments :b
meteorcat-thanks and no prob!
ltplissken-man im gonna save all your comments and publish a poem book :b thanks for stopping by!
thistleborn-thanks and haha thats what the forums are for! its excellent motivation when i see other peoples work too!
Nice work, especially the faces, and skin tones.
here's a some critiques, that vehicle looks delightfully dangerous. The seat looks really uncomfortable, you can only seat at a 90 degree angle. If that "engine block?" catches fire, your ass is on fire. Hope you don't get on a head-on collision. that transmission or engine block crush your head in.
I hope I didn't come off as a prick.
For reason, I feel like watching Top Gear.
Cool sketchbook. I agree with what everyone's said on here. Especially what flashback said about the vehicle design. It also doesn't look very comfortable to sit in either.
Otherwise, your sketchbook really inspires me. Thanks.
dammit man, you have some wicked badass skills. Now I have to work harder again, A FRIGGIN LOT harder!! :)
That is one wicked portrait. The colors and rendering is flawless. Its very eye catching.
ALso love the environmental experiments. Great style on those. The rendering on the figures are great, but they look kinda stiff.
The vehicles are looking good. Like how you have approached the latest one. Keep them coming :D
Thanks for the comment! Nice stuff here, you're getting pretty good at rendering!
I'm not understanding the perspective of that vehicle, the lines on the chair suggest we're looking down at it, but the wing things on the back suggest our eye level would be in the middle of the chair.
Hey kevin, thanks for checking out my work, as of now i am stunned to see how beautiful your art is, i will surely dig up some of your work and will try to improve myself, good job again!
look at that sexy boy! awesome to see your stuff here man! nice concepts!
Keep doing it man! I'm liking that vehicle design's silhouette. Probably gotta lean the seat back some more and give it additional leg room. Reminds of the Starcraft's vulture haha
I really like the stuff you've done with a pencil and you're understanding of forms and values shows a lot in your studies : ) Big thumbs up : D
flashback-thanks man and yeah i have never done vehicles before so i didnt know what to tak into consideration while designing, ill look out for what you mentioned next time!
istmin52-thanks, really like to hear when my sketchbook is inspiring!
setherial-lol we both should!
samsyzm-thanks and i tried fixing what you told me so let me know if it still looks wierd :b
hucumkedi-lol thanks bro! great to see your posting again too!
erikly-thanks and haha you are right it does remind me of that starcraft bike :b
some pencil stuff from last night, more to come soon!
cool pencil work dude! watch out for the proportions :)
You've got a great eye for proportions and rendering - I love the portrait in 373 - I have no idea how to get that smooth shading- it almost looks like porcelain - but I love the look of it.
My only critic would be your work has a rigidity, all your figures are posed stiffly. Don't be afraid to throw down some messy stuff, everything doesn't need to be neat and tidy - you might surprise yourself :)
Some nice work and concepts here. Keep pushing. Will return.

rhubix-thanks and i got you about being messy, i have actually been wanting to experiment with a more painterly feel to my stuff
