Like What I
It Is Really
You Have To
And Work Smart
great book! those gestures (posemaniacs, i guess?) have a nice sense of volume! some of the forshortening could use some more work. and the two characters are cool too - they have real attitude. they are both somewhat typical but that can be a good or a bad thing depending on what they are for.
keep it up!
The mechanist is sweet, colour's are really juicy, only thing I have against it are the creases in his sleeves, they're unfocused and look a little like tree bark because of this.
the latest two are awesome, get a good idea of how you work up your characters. nice.
Man, I'm in love with your works definitely five star material
You've improved a ton since your first post.
Keep it up!

I LOVE the last ones! i think they're epic! so much attitude in them!
Hey folks, sorry, I had no chance to do my posemaniacs today, actually not so much sorry to anyone else as I am sorry to myself about that one. Today has been kinda wierd, as well as being good, and somehow closure filled. My Grandmothers funeral was today and so we spent the day on that, I have cracked away at another concept though, this arty little bugger, he is an assassin, and an actor, a tragedian in fact^^
So i hope you like him, and I gave that last figure of mine a fun twist. Hope you like it
katinki: Seeing as they are just fun filled sketches that is a good thing, but I guess it is kinda a bad thing as they were not ment to be typical
young paddy1: Wow good eye! Something was annoying me about that one!
Novbert: Cool thanks so much. I really appreciate it^^
Espenboi: Thanks man, I am gonna drop by your sketchbook in the nearest future
staticpen: thanks amigo, good to hear. I will keep it aplace of inspiration^^
cout<mecha: Thanks, I tried to suggest a lot of detail in those

*sniff* just ignore my comments will ya,
just kidding ;P you already replied on msn
nice progress on the cheiftan, also creepy feeling on that joker character..
keep it up Even
sweet updates dude the assassin is coming along real nice. i picture him reciting hamlet to the head... well keep em coming man, can't wait to see more.
To live is to create, to create is to live. Without art and music, I do not know how I would get by in my day to day life.
Wow man!! Your work is coming along in leaps and bounds!!
Here is what I guess is the final take on the assassin. Will be studying hard tomorrow. I am gonna practise some speedpainting and stuff too, to increase my efficiency, and get more done
thesadpencil; Thanks man, hope you like him. I think it ain't all bad^^
D@niel: Thanks man, I do my best
Sketch: Thanks so much!
hi m8 looking good
I like how the assassin turned out.. Quite ironic pose in a way
I think maybe his upper cheek bone was a little too well defined and extreme. It is a bit confusing to see what it actually is - a very characterized cheek muscle or just a blond sideburns.
anyways, i think he is good character
Need to get more movement in your figures Pix. When it's that fast try to get a line of emphasis then draw around the center of that line even if it's just in your mind. Otherwise your figures and/or impressions will be unstable. Stability will help you get quick proportions for later elaboration...
The assassin turned out great mate, and I love the sniper, plenty of contrast there. Nice work.
your characters are really starting to come alive, great personality, keep it up!

Yowza! Nice work Those gestures are giving me a guilty consciousness.
heheh. Anyway. YOu want cirts? I'll try. The sniper is great but I can't help but being irritated by the left (his right) foot facing towards us. I'd somehow be expecting since his coat obscures the tilt and the trousers are not as crinkly as the other side the foot would be more parallel to the other.
The side facing away from us is a little hard to read. Is that a bag hanging over his rifle? Or is it his hand?
Anyway. Wonderful stuff!
Some brave attempt at doing an enviro today. I blow at it, but is gonna get finished at some point^^ Also the sniper had s little work done Me and a friend, Hannah, did competative speedies to, here is my Zombie propellor!
doncam: Merci amigo!
localfatheaded: THANK YOU! I needed that boost^^
DigitallyDumbfounded: Nice crits, will get at that tomorrow! Thanks so much
dude, thanks for popping by the book. haha, that scottish riflemen on the last page made my day, so fun!!
i cant help but notice you have 2 different styles when doing enviro stuf vs characters. the characters you use very solid brushes so things are very sturdy when you are done, but a little steril. then your environment stuff you kind of glaze a bit more to let your origional linework help sell the end peice.
i saymeet in the middle, glaze more on your characters, and block more on your enviros. let the light kind of flow over the character, its hard to get smooth looking forms when using a solid brush, i bounce back and forth between the hard and soft stuff to vary the surfaces.
amazing work, i want to go home and start doing some sketches now
Tons of personality in the last couple characters!
Are you tossing around a lot of reference with the newest sniper character? Should he have some camo? maybe hes such a good shot he doesnt really need to hide.
Your environment doesnt suck friend...I do think we need more to look at on the street. your conposition does a good job at leading our attention to the end of the road, but it goes there too quickly! Maybe keep that in mind if you take it further
