What I like about your SB is the life you get into your people - they come alive.
GMS: ROOOCCKKK ~ that's classic, I always giggle when I read it.
HAJiMe: Grainy and small, I know, less wrist movement that way. I've got tendonitis
on my right elbow and my right knee. [< This one kills me, cause I can't run/jog, and when dwardo does not run/jog, dwardo is not happy. Thanks mate].
Issa: History books. Main rig has lost net connection (still have to re-install)
Spending time with family, my uncle especially. *Fingers crossed.
Blackspot: Accidentally steps on your toes. Oh! Whooopseeee!. It was an acT-seeEA-denT.t!
kelly and blaspo: They're lucky they're not being coloured in, especially the humans.
My skin pallette at the moment look like fake hawiian tans with a hint of zombie hues.
I like the guy on the sand with the knife - again you have movement.
Can you change your sig so I don't have to guess which is your SB?
I'll try, but the board has the sig limited to however many characters.
The first 5 links are a must for everyone I reckon.
Orange and Lime be my favourite colours.
I love Nigella's bangs
Workshops. Yeah! <that one stays - for every noob like myself.
n Kiera is a rub a dub dub, I thank her for the grubs.
Hey gangsta, whaddup in da hood ? good stuff ! I think your weakness comes from light ! before putting any strokes on your canvas, try to set up a light source, and to really visualize where the light is hitting your figures ! a good exercise to learn it is to paint only with pur black and pure white ! You can find stuff like that on Miles or Mr De licious' sketchbook, just have to search a bit ! But you'll learn much things by doing that ! Keep it up !
Sham:[I'm not a fan of making posts without images to accompany, so sorry for the long time feedbacks].
gangsta??? oh ... hahaha *I so need some sleep. aaaamm, no, I'm no gangster.
I love Rock too much. Roxette girl. That shit hits my heart all the time.
Issa: So do I. One thing I should be breaking away from.
Lid: Mr Del's sb has many pages. He should consider doing 'Registry' instead.
All awesomeness, less text. :hahahaha: Light and Shadow. Lin Ran on my first link sig.
Thank you paperX. Thank you Lin Ran. mwah mwah.
Please feel free to take me out of your sigs. I hardly update and I'm sorry. From the heart.
Oh aaa ... thank you for the compliments ebrybody. I just get stumped by it all the time.
I don't know how to react, but my heart skips a beat all the time. mwah mwah.

I like the scimitar wielding guy, good sense of action and feels like he has mass. White little detail there is in the background looks accurate to the area.
I'd like to see details in the hands and the scimitars blade, and some dust from his feet could be cool.
I think the silhouettes are also interesting, I like how the guy's sword (bow?) cuts his profile with a white swath, and how dramatic the light is falling from the back. His face is too small, though, and he needs more shoulder.
The arm below the elbow is too thick on the other hand.
The other guy, not sure about what's going on in the front, where I assume his right arm is, and I think more light would fall on his chin area.
WIP: No reference used. Hence, the lack of detials esp on anatomy.
[I should add some funny asz banners or something something].
Inspired by JianLi's awesome works. Awesome awesome.
edit: I'll edit this out when I got those shadows fixed. Thank you Black Spot. Thank you Dan Liiamatta.

jackpot anjr90: Killer alias dude. I want to know what it means now. Values and Colors. Anatomy and gestures. Composition and lighting. Soo mannny I cry. Thanks mate. edit: oh and Art History.
Mike: Muted be nice sometimes. But sometime you just need a big bright red.
ImaGeenatio: Have fun with that collab eh. See you on the flipside mate. And please keep doing those children's illustrations. Them be good shiet.
Hamsta: Thank you for the IDEAS and TIPS. I always appreciate your eyes man.
Send me your left or which ever has crappier vision. I don't mind sending my lazy eye.
The other guy I got sleepy, 'nuff said. hahaha!

What an amusing piece. The only crit I have is the red bull seems to be standing on a curved surface.
Blackspot: The red bull is the devil btw. Ha. The brown was suppose to be geezus. I gave him human feet, but it looked somewhat silly. hehehe. I'll do a workover on this one and change the lighting also, I just can't figure out how.
Thank you for the sharp eye BlackSpot. mwah mwah.
I didn't make that painting. I say it in the post. I was just asking for advice on how to get those windows on the side building. - and as for your comment: Hell if i know.Awesome sketchbook M57. And I do love that portrait for your av. Sweet emotions.
I don't get how those connections/cable/walk ways can be possible.
As it recedes, shouldn't the size decrease also, or was it on purpose? (An illusion?)
My observational skills may be great but i said nothing about my drawing skills

Please comment on my deviant art I need friends T-T
BUY MY SHIRTS PLEASE - They're awesome.
If you just got rid of most of the shadow on the ground it would work better. I forget to mention that the cheering crowd is excellent or are they poppies? Whatever, it adds atmosphere to the duel.
It's cool to see your SB - some cool stuff, some misses - sometimes in one piece ~ I agree about the ground shadow on the piece above (makes no sense) - that said I love the boots of the "good" guy.
goodluck, and keep rollin' with the punches.
SB. p31 updated 25.04.2012.
BlackSpot and dan liimatta: I don't know how you guys can see those, brilliant. Thank yous so much.
Mike: [Is it wrong to laugh at my own pictures]
aaaa My57: I'll .... edit it out. I shouldn't be making posts half zombied, tea breaking and muffin in the gullet.

the green one is the sketchbook button the greeen one.
I always get that one wrong, and now I see that you just posted a trillion pages with new sweet delicious pictures
where I just go "ooooh" and "aaaaaahhh"
and where you just can say: "yes!!!"
and this is what I wanted to tell you:
I just took a break to post this.
But sometimes I also draw stuff
s'been some time since I ventured in here mr. dwardo! it's aces, it means I have tonnes to pour over (like the other day, I found a Roots album I'd lost and some jellybeans in the cupboard. that was a good day)
those b/w gesture sketches have wicked form; now you just have to transfer that to all your figures! the concept for your latest piece is great (I am digging jesusbull's little booties)
What an overwhelming lesson to all artists! Be not afraid of absurdity; do not shrink from the fantastic. Within a dilemma, choose the most unheard-of, the most dangerous, solution. Be brave, be brave! - Isak Dinesen
