and happy birthday dude !! sorry i missed it !!
cheers dude and dont stop drawing !!!
Those ink drawings from life are just wonderful! Is there any kind of under drawing there?
keep up the great work.
Carnifex: Im gald I did maked ya happy :D thanks for the props
hurricane: Bro! how is it going that green serpent dragon is the shizzle
thanks for the happy B-D, and for the ecouragment, your
thread is a constant inspiration, it might take a while but ill get to
the place you are, count on it!
kingcoyote: nope most of the times I doint use any, I need to
train my self to visualice and use only the lines that are important
that is why I try not to use a underdrawing it gonna take a while
till this excesices pay off tho :P
Sum anatomy from Burne Hogarth this time, a very slow day...see ya 8)
Having a slow day as well, Im felling a bit sick wich makes me
agry because I just got well from an infection a week ago,
sweet luck of mine...
Doing the SP thing, Photoshop three hours see ya later :^^:
Spot on critique Carnifex, I do have more flesh on my cheekbones
but it was more a visual effect because I made the top of my head to higth
after reading your critic I made some changes in the chin as well,
Thanks a lot for them, I really need em :P ill be seeing ya later
bw I just found this guys site, Albert Khai Nam Truong and dam he´s good!!
the rendering on the hogarth studies is very good,but you look abit skinny on your sp. or is that just me? i seem to recall you having more flesh on you. so to speak.
edit: something makes the face seem askew. i can't tell if it's the jawline or the placement of the mouth though. something about the mouth and beard area.
I went home and did some ink drawings the other day, after seeing yours.
Thanks for the kick in the balls!
I'm studying Hogarth right now too. I hope it pays off... I've just forgotten soo much.
screw u man... i finally thought i had a self portrait that i could be proud of and then u post this, now i see i have muchhhhh more to learn, and put in practice.... awesome work i wanna see more like this last one!
much love :) cheers!
I'm liking your inks a lot especially the shading you use and the sps are great, your characters are usually very good but every so often they seem somehow hollow.
Carnifex:Yo!its good to have you around! thanks for the spot on critique,
I made some changes based on it, Im glad you liked the shading on the
hogarth studies, see ya later!! -Daddy Smurf-
kingcoyote: Hogarts is kinda exagerated but its great to see the muscles
as volumen instead as just abstract shapes conecting here and there,
Im happy to har you wanted to do inks after seeing my experiments I made
my day :D you will see studing anatomy does pays off, but it takes
some time to even start to kick in, so keep it UP!
Burning Eyes: Your last SP looked hell of a lot nice cool harsh dramatic
lighting, I diged it a lot, just keep doing em, Im still way far from doing
a really good face, its a matter of pratice thats all, you doing really
young paddy1: Hey Im glad you liked the inks and the shading, as far as the
hollow thing, well I was gonna write that ill overcome it with practice
but truth be told Im not even sure if Ill be able to pull it off, I mean
its not the first time someone tells me this (Jason Manely sorta told me this
same thing on the workshop) and well I dont know what to tell ya, I guess
time will tell, its not like I dont see "it", its more like Im not even sure if I
can fix it, and like I said time will tell...I know you dont meant to be
harsh on anything but man, you comment really bumed me out, its like
I prefer to be told that my tecnichal skills are bad :P oh well back to the
drawing board, still a long life to live and learn.
SP and some portraits form this life drawing group in my city
see ya later, let see if next bach looks a little better... :^^:
Ok some creatures, the big one was for the weeks COWS but I wasnt able
to bring the skech to color, still I liked my portal opener, and I call
it "entropy beast" and some demonish lemur, see ya guys later
The portal creature is a good start... very dark. It reminds me of the Naz'gul from LOTR, and also some of Brom's stuff. The arms on it look a little "off" though, like you couldn't figure out how they should attach... um, it looks like you added some mass in between the torso and arms to make up the difference, instead of getting them positioned well in the first place. Does that make sense? I'm also having trouble figuring out what's going on with the triangle shape next to him... I'm assuming that it's the "portal", but it's position in space isn't consistant with everything else. I love the head-piece/body armour, and tatoos though...
The SP and portraits are awesome, as usual. Do you work from photos with your SPs at all? The reason I ask, is that I always have trouble maintaining (or, failing that reestablishing) facial expressions with the angle, and lighting etc. when I'm drawing myself from life.
Great work, man! I always enjoy looking at your stuff.
Hey, my crazy mexican, sorry for not stopping by to often.
Damn, I missed a lot of goodies. You sp's are looking top-notch. And the expressions, wowser.
Anyway, nice work.
Hope everything is well with you.
I must have this thing whenever I see awsome lines. I just love seeing really nice line works.. :) love the SPs too keep drawing away!
sucha big improvement man, and i love to see the lineart from life, its a good variety you have there!
kingcoyote: Spot on critiques, I will develop this creature some more
for the next post, so ill take all of your coments in acount for sure,
about the photo thing I have never made a photo selfportait,
you see you can always use photo refs of other people from magazines,
but the beauti of using a mirror is that its almost as good as a life
drawing, and doing stuff form life activates diferent parts of your brain
that you dont use while coping from photos translating 3D to 2D is much
more streessfull for your brain and you learn the doble of things,
as far as expresions I dont mantain my face on the expresion all
i start with a losse gesture and then I try to tighten it up by going
back and forward on the expresion on my face, say... I consentrate on
how the the nose goes a littel up in my face when my lips are contrated
on anger and then I try to refine that area, and so on and on on the rest
of the features and overall expression that I already skeched on the gesture
underdrawing, (not that my system is all that good, actually Im pretty
dam far form doing good expresions :P ) I hope this helps you a bit :^^:
see ya and thanks for droping by!!
Pencilator: Hey you blond sweden drawing machine!!

This new update is awesome. SO inspiring. The figures and self portait and fantastic and your progress just makes me want to draw all night, but sadly I can't cause it's 5:30 am. I gotta sleep. Rock on.
I haven't been in here for a while and BAM! soo much cool stuff. You're a drawing machine man!
And another CAorg drawing machine :)
By the way: Happy birthday. I know that I´m late ...but better know than bever.
No crits with your pencilwork. And I guess that your digital stuff would enter the next level if you dared to use a not so transparent pencil tool instead of the airbrush-tool. I guess that this was -as your strokes would nor blend one into another -it would look more vivid.
ChrisMayernik: i know the felling of wating to draw all nite long :D
Im very happy to hear you got inspired by my doodling, keep rocking
on I saw you SKB youv got some solid stuff there!!
Bloodsbane: hey thanks a lot Im glad you diged the updates!
johnny78: DUUDDE thanks a lot for droping by! Im so happy to hear you diged the pencil work, and you are spot on right on the paint thing, I need to do more deliverate strokes on my digital painting, thanks for pointing out!
Setherial: thanks a lot!!
Ok this is todays work, see ya guys later!!
