Hi everybody :waves:,
I finally decided that it´s time to post my sketchbook here.
I really need more and daily practice and I will do my best to post every day, hoping that your comments and crits will keep me motivated.
Here´s a link with older sketches that I have posted before:

Burne Hogarth studies:
Concepts for a factory that produces little toys and figurines:
damn dude nice start. i really enjoy the wor. your technique is very crisp and refreshing. you have a way with getting a very realistic likeness. the studies and repros from your link are very nice. on this page you have some very good work. im not a fan of hogarth but the studies are executed well. i cant wait to see more. do you paint?
i agree! great work. i allways enjoy looking at it. big respect for your patience, doing all those muscle-studies. i would go insane, working on such difficult details. and of course, the way you do hatching lines! man, i just can't stop wondering how smooth (can i say that? english is not my first language...) you hatch. you know my problems with hatching...
btw.: i love those cows. amazing. just imagine all the happy kids playing with them... :fruit:
hey there robolus, nice studies! ive been doing some sketches of muscles but just under the skin, i havent gotten around to looking at photos of how the actually muscle would look like on a person. also is those sketches of cows for that company that makes a candy called cow tails or something? its caramel and has white dot in the center?
are the last ones for kinder surprise figurines? they look like that kind of stuff... "crazy cows" or something
its always good to see an artist who knows what hes doing,great to have you in here...
The thing that impresses me most about your work is the solidness to the forms..your shadings flow around shapes very much like Hogarth...
keep posting m8.
metalwinds: Thank´s a lot man. I didn´t like Hogarth very much either. But Marko Djurdjevic gave me the advice to look again in the books, and he´s right, Burne was a good teacher.
Suder: Thanks my friend! Uh, I have the same problems like you with "Inglisch".
metal + Rusty: Many thanks for yor kind words!
lung_bug + Lady Lioness: These concepts are for "Milka", a german candy company.

fine stuff you´re presenting here. I´m not much of a fan of Hogarth - even if I have some of his books - but you´ve done some really good renderings. I especially like the second and the third portrait. They are showing a confident linework I envy you for. Have they been done before the model? They look like the result of a portrait study session.
Nice to have you around!
<Insert witty remark here>
it's great to see some of the portraits. i like them (and i'm proud to be the owner of one!) i was very impressed on how fast you do those portraits, capturing the main characteristics of the peroson in front of you. big respect, once again!
and, oh man, i love the boy with the head in his hands, grinning out of his costume. makes me smile!
fipse: 1000 Dank, Fipse! These 3 drawings where done at a industry fair for a company in Frankfurt.
Suder: Vielen Dank Alter! Ich wette die Karikatur hängt in der Gästetoilette!
Little doodles, I couldn`t resist to sketch Esmeralda, one of my two cats, while she was sleeping:
hey i thought i posted here already seems i forgot O_!O
i wanted to say those hogarth sketches are just awesome... i really like them. I believe i have one of his books but too complicated for me right now
your style and rendering skills are great and I really like your creativity .
keep at it your work is inspiring
ah, i know this one. i've seen it before and i like it. and i like your cat.
great work! keep it daily!
p.s.: wie gästeklo? hab's gar nicht aufgehangen :p
endregan + metalwinds: Many thanks for your kind words!:chug:
suder: ...wie nicht aufgehangen! Schäm dich!
Hogarth studies and a telephone sketch of Marko Djurdjevic :
sweetness your work keeps on amazing me .
your charicature and cartoons are awesome too..
I always thought, Marko has been showing himself too positively I like the cats you´re drawing, animals seem so difficult to me (and the reptiles of my GF are always hiding)
<Insert witty remark here>
you fukkin bastard! I hate you, you and your family and your cats and your shitty caricatures of me. Dig yourself a hole in the ground, otherwise I'll stomp you in. How dare you to make fun of your fellow this way? SHAME ON YOU!:mad:
I love you (did I mention that before?)
Best my friend
endregan: Many, many thanks:crazy:
Fipse: You should see him in the morning before he had his coffee - :dorky:
Marko::bash: :ranting: :machinegu :barfing: :bootyshak :electric:
Here are some pages from my sketchbook 2002 that I wanted to show you (Big DL):
holy shneikies. that's more hands than I could possibly concieve. Did you use your own as ref or just make them all up? great studies, great sketches man. You got talent. great linework on the ink portraits too. Something I'm striving for lately. keep posting man, I love to see this stuff, it inspires me.

*mind goes blank* KITTTY!!
*goes back to normal* Your stuff's all oldish (sort of reneissance [sp?] and 50's cartoony) but goodish looking ^__^ gleee
what can I say?
No, really, what can I say?
