It's not that I'm lazy, it's that I'm working a lot.
Breaking down the face. Ball point fun. Hogarth Helped a lot.

great stuff, I especially like the giant and the girl he looks very intimidating and the whole angle simple works, what bothers me that you can't see the giants face, it would be even more terrifying if you could at least see his eyes.
More head work.
I still see issues with these when I haven't looked at them in a while. That's an error of drawing, not just understanding. I need to figure out where I'm fucking up so much. I can't seem to align things!
Digital from memory of other two studies. Not really going for a likeness, but a rationale of form/structure:

Been doing the double to double thing at work(s) again, but squeaked this one out:
Not giving up on the head thing. I must get better at heads.
Really great sketch book. Your heads are getting better. I think that on the last one maybe the eyes are a little too big. Otherwise I really like your work. I'm surprised I haven't seen your sketchbook before.
Plissken- thanks man. Been working much, also been writing a story. A story I must illustrate. Dark Fantasy/sci-fi based story about a civil war. I'm currently writing the history, so it's kind of droning on. \
Istmin- thanks yo. I appreciate you looking and I hope I get through this head thing quickly . It's a skill I want, but have never had.... so I'm gonna go get it.
Here's some thumbs from that story. The crowning of Emod'uh'Emof, first King of Bura-Gor. He was crowned after uniting four of Bura-Gor's five ruling tribes under one banner using the ore-Tshraka as a promise for a brighter future. Not an evil man, but misguided by the god Tshrak, who sought vengeance after his defeat in the heavens. He granted Emod the knowledge of the ore, knowing full well it would bring the people of Bura-Gor to the all-out civil war they're about to see.
I'm going to be doing this from start to (hopefully) finished in the critique center. I'll provide a link, but it seems I'm replying to this first, cus I'm an idiot.
Really insperational work i love how you do your thumbnail character concepts, real sexy results.
Sat down and has some more gestural fun today. Wow, it's really fun to free it up sometimes.
I'm gonna go read my book! Glenn Cook fucking rules.
Started a random dwarf character again. I need to change his other arm around... I'm not sure what he doing. I'll just have him holding a coin, or maybe a coin purse!
OH yeah. and some sketchup stuff for that piece I'm working on.

The last updates look good. I can't criticize you so easily anymore... (maybe if you draw a detailed big face but you are improving quickly even at that it seems) I need to get better myself
I like your dwarf character
Hey man, I am really enjoying the Aztec-like giant and the American dude. The volume on the flag is great!
Also I am really curious to see how your google sketchup composition will be used. I wish I was that good at google sketchup..
Like to here that, definitely my kind of stuff.Been working much, also been writing a story. A story I must illustrate. Dark Fantasy/sci-fi based story about a civil war.
And I like the storyboard. The characters doing some gestures
look exquisite. You are all rounded, doing everything a bit,
some great qualities. Will check you on later, hope you kick in some
new gloomy futuristic updates.
shiNIN- thanks man. I really appreciate your time spent looking through my stuff and making your comments. thanks so much for your input!
Pavel- hey hey, how are you doing man? I'm also curious as to how I'm going to use it. Last time I did this the illustration didn't go so well.
Plissken- yeah man. I really do lack the time to make it happen with two jobs and all...
...SO... AS OF TODAY... I PUT IN MY TWO WEEKS at one of them. The other has guaranteed me 40 hours. Let's see if it works.
I'm so fucking stoked for this. One job is going to be so much less of a pain in my ass.
And this guy. Unfortunately his hand got changed around as I was painting, so it's little behind.
The other hand has a pass or two, I don't like the way it looks either. Don't worry, I'll work on it's specifics more- I paint hands with a stranger workflow.
Wow. Nice thumbnails and pose sketches. Really dynamic and lively work.
Keep it up!
Those digitals are amazing, great work!
Hey all, thanks so much. I'll do the individual thing, since I have the whole fucking day off.
Misch- I moved to Blacksburg. I know no one, except for work acquaintances. I moved up here with my girlfriend, who is going to medical school. I loathe my existence here. It's so fucking lame. There's NOTHING else to do. So I draw. And draw and draw and draw. I am working two jobs on while I do this, but I am currently in the process of quitting one, so I'm going to be drawing a LOT more. Not working, but getting more skilled so that I'll look attractive to the art directors. Please stop by often.
Bingo- thank you for your reply. I am always up for positive feedback!
Elophant- same to you. I'll be sure to keep drawing.
Kendall- Thanks! I love painting digitally!
I worked some on the dwarf guy and got bored. I've got the whole day off, so I am watching Hercules and the Legendary Journeys and drawing. I even did some comp studies of the show. All in all, it's been a really productive four hours of consciousness .
I'm gonna bake some cookies and keep drawing, haha.
Your use of colour is masterful. And it's so interesting how you break down your forms; thank you for posting your work so I could learn from it!
Baking cookies and drawing is the winner combination,
I told that the last time to my uncle, right after I
have pushed him over the rail to from the cliff.
The bastard promised me money, but he went greedy.
His head splashed like a melon hitting the rock hard rocks.
He was wiggling a bit more after that, most probably suffering
in agonizing pain.
You are doing good my friend and I like to view your sketchbook
from time to time.
Lii-Chan- I'm not sure I'm the best to learn from, but thanks- you're comment was flattering.
Plissken- Thanks G. Thanks for saving my manhood with your story of fruit, blood, and family bonding. Please stop by here any time, and know that I too enjoy your sketchbook.
Here's the dealio. I've been watching A LOT of Hercules and drawing, but couldn't get round to if as of late. Here's some better, more show-able stuff. Ballpoint and a digital:
Been using this gesture tool. So these are actually all referenced. 30 second gestures and 5 minute constructions. And a face that went all wrong... I got nervous knowing it would be gone in 5 minutes and fell through.

Tattered Banners and Bloody Flags!
One minute gestures (try to get to be able to nail proportions the first time-round), and some character stuff for CHOW. Gesture practice is making character sketching like that easier already. After like two days. I recommend it.
Too much sketching on this thread page, not enough painting. The next one will have more painting!
Found some mechanical pencils, so I used them instead of my handy-dandy ballpoint. I think these will now be considered my "warm-up excercise". Never had one of those before, but these loosen me up and let me start drawing.
More drawing... I might update later. Not like I have anything else to do. Fucking Blacksburg...
If I don't like this in the morning I'm starting over. The pose got really questionable. Maybe I could play with it a little more?
