I can definitely see improvement in your work but I'd still recommend working more with life drawings and observational stuff. I like how your own style is creeping in your drawings, always a good thing to see but you want to be careful not to let your "style" become an excuse for the way you draw things. It's a common habit of illustrators who lose track of their observation skills
Crahzz Thnx for the feedback, ye I should go out there and draw stuff from life instead of just drawing random crap from imagination. It's all about them studies!
Well, here's some more random crap and some Bridgman studies, gonna try to get back on track with studying anatomy. Lord knows I need to.
Nice improvement from the first page to now. Keep up the hard work.
Someone who I think would prefer not to be named in such a public manner said my figures were still kinda static, and I had to agree.
So... in order to attempt to change that, I'm gonna try to do some figure studies, these are from characterdesign.com
The black blobs are so I can use the eyedropper tool to change my brush back to black more quickly.
Live long and prosper.
Another pose study that turned into me fooling around and, I dno.
And some environment I did a while ago, it was my interpretation of someone else's sketch.
Thought I'd add the steps since I happened to have em. In the end I fooled around with the uhm I think burn tool, and then before I knew it I had done more than 50 strokes and I couldn't go back in history and I didn't save so... I kinda stopped. ^^
May the force be with you all.
did a portrait, was supposed to be a quick study that got a little out of hand, not sure who it is, I typed in "portrait" on flickr and clicked on something that seemed nice.
Uhm, I did this at 72 DPI without zooming in in an attempt to keep myself from focusing on eensy teensy little details and to keep my focus on general shapes/planes/whatever.
Oh, and mad props to http://www.flickr.com/photos/simonpais/2439229062/ apparently the picture was taken by a guy called Lars Stephan
Catch ya on the flipside!
Hey man, thanks for visiting my SB,
You lines are great and have a hint of RObert Crumb here and there. I had a friend a long time ago who used to draw like you with a fine pen. When he jumped (evolved his work) he went on so high up that I couldnt believe. I think your next jump will be really amazing.
Marioucci Thnx man! Well, I can't wait for that jump to happen. ^^
Giant sketchbook update for you today.
I tried to upload all of this with the attachment manager twice, but every time when I was almost done for some reason he lost all the images. So now I'm just uploading these with imageshack.
And my A5 sketchbook.
Pfew, that took a while.
May the force be with you all.

Goed bezig Teun! Ben jij van Nederland of BelgiŽ?
Do some more muscle-studies, like from the arm, they could help you quite a bit I think. You got anatomy down quite well, but sometimes, like with the feet, it shows that you could benefit some more from closer studies, analysing the whole structure and understanding why it is there. (This rant applies even more to me xD) Keep it up Boer!
Devo I'm from the Netherlands, yeah I should definitely do some leg/foot studies my feet are absolutely terrible.
cgaddict Thnx, I'll do my best.
Some more figures from today. Small update but thought I'd do these last ones before I go back to Amsterdam where I don't have a scanner.
Your work is very good and inspiring.
I will become better at art!
Jr.Molcak Thanks, yeah those horses wouldn't stop running around ^^ and for some reason that made me give em very wonky proportions, especially the legs are way off.
Decided to give the current ChoW a shot, here's what I got so far.
The topic is intergalactic postman.
I don't like his head, and the things behind him are supposed to be bags of mail he's dragging behind him.
Looking for feedback/crits!
lolbbq Thanks for the suggestion, I'll try that. I usually just dive in when I do sketches in my sketchbook, not really thinking about where I'm going or what's it gonna be ^^.
update on the mailman.
Would love some feedback, cuz I'm not really sure what I'm doing. Just fooling around and seeing what works.
A study I just did, kinda rushed near the end but the main goal was to capture the way the bottom of the ink bottle looked in the warped light.
Also got my hands on some toned paper on which I've doing some pose studies from characterdesign.com, I'll scan that next time I get near a scanner.
Hey I stopped by your sketchbook and to be honest I was not feeling it, I soon found myself at the last page and really enjoyed your works progress. You have a lot of crazy things going around in your head and some funny concepts. Really like that space mail man, I picture him being European and not saying any real words just muttering by himself LOL. Any ways dig your stuff and you have improved since your first few posts keep up the good work!
Awesome chess study, man. Though I feel like the bottom to that bishop is rather flat which breaks the illusion of depth.
Keep at it though! The values and colors are really nice
