I'm around, I just finished with that comic I was working on which took ridiculously longer then I expected, I will upload load it here once It's on the comic website.
also mostly working at the moment and waiting for answer from the art department, I also applied for IKEA it's the warehouse I'm working right now for a chance to be part of the company instead of just a temp like I am right now.
Cya very soon with a nice update!
P.S. I saw Avatar for the third time unfortunately the third time wasn't on 3D but nevertheless it's an amazing experience, the only movie that brought tears to my eyes, the passion... the acting, it's a true masterpiece, James Cameron BRAVO! I salut you!

Avatar truly is an amazing movie, at first you get wet when you see the effects but after awhile it's the story that hit's you so hard. This movie shows everything i hate mankind for.
Waiting for that phat update D, wake up work hard eh.
I hope things will get better for you, keep in mind you promised me something we'll be working as ca's! Maybe even for Blizzard haha, a dream come true would that be....Well Cole did it, so may we. ok enough of this Yoda crap, see you soon.

I hope it will all work out for you both, that your plans will work you two!
And i hope to see those updates any time soon!
I saw avatar 3 times too, 2 times in those first days, and one time 3D with all of my friends. Group mall activity!
It is just as Paul said..the effects, especially in 3D. I felt like those little duties were flying all around me.
But i liked the start, when he got used to the body, and then learned all the stuff..it's just great!
Seeing movies like this one, and hearing out Michael Kutsche's interview on Alice in Wonderland,
seeing stuff like this makes me believe that we shall have a more meaningful purpose in a near future.
See you soon Danny.
Icecold Dude man kind has it's flaws but there is no reason to hate it, sometimes I even think mankind has more flaws then qualities, but after all we live in an amazing world and I try to appreciate every breath of air I take into my lungs each and every day.
And becoming concept artists is just a matter of hard work and time. good things come to those who wait
BlackDelphin thanks! it doesn't matter how things will turn out to be we will all get to our destination at the end.
Avatar must be the most amazing movie I have ever seen period, I still try to cut the movie in pieces in my mind and figure how could they create something so good and touching with a fairly simple plot and animated characters.
Genius can be found in the most unexpected places.
lilnebo Heya! thanks, it's nice to see you here in my humble sb come back for more any day!
no fanciness of any kind today just roughies at work on lunch break and while waiting for bus, I save the good stuff for later
Yes it can, and that is why it is called genius.
Sometimes, the fact of being so simple makes it so interesting..
I had a doodle while at work days myself, so lets bring the good stuff now!
I like your little studies too
I especially like the mood in the first one. You got that expression down.
Don't stop posting Danny!
edit: w00t! you are my 1000th comment!

Whoa, i've already missed some updates.
I'd suggest starting light and loose, going darker where you feel it needs to be.
While sketching fast, thos epeople for example it's better to simply focus on gesture and outlines rather than trying to go into details. Also try to calm down your strokes i had the same problem, but i'm staring to get the hang of it.
Get one sharp pencil and one with a prettu dull tip. It helps to vary te linework.
Now, get back to drawing! ^^'
Hey tehre thanks for comment, lucky me my work is reaching people gere on CA.
I can see an great progress in your work. About these two last dudes I recommend you begining from setting the line of eyebrows and branching out the lines of face, upper part of the head, and then corecting any construction lines if nesecary. Talking about lightning and shadows... I'm doing my sketches by just covering almost the whole picture with 20% grey and then add more darker shadows. You should try "drawing the light" with rubber. Sharp edged (?) zones of light on face can really make it realistic and convince watcher.
like Icy said, get back to drawing!
My 2D Portfolio
Hey man, I have some health problems I'm dealing with and work and moving to a new place just doesn't leave me time to study, I got accepted to TAD but no scholarship which gets me back to square one basically, which is studying by my own at home.
I am thinking about picking up from where I left off almost everyday this totally sucks I must admit, but hopefully I will get back sometime soon.
still waiting for the comic to be uploaded to the website so I can load it here besides that nothing new to post.
you are doing a good job on your sketchbook keep it up I am following all the time.
Thank you for that juicy comment Dan, I am soo happy that you're back with us again. Glad to hear that you have such a great new environment, mind sharing some photos, or maybe even paintings of your new place? would be great! And please promise to not vanish like that again, see you soon brother
Ice thanks dude it means a lot to me that you keep coming back and checking out, I must say that there is not a day that goes by I don't want to get back to my studies, but I gotta be patient and let other things to settle such as a new job and steady income which I hope to become a reality very soon.
Our new house is so nice, lots of light and tons of inspiration, no doubt the best house we ever had if you want to see some photos of the house and me and my daughter become my friend on Facebook! and click that! >http://www.facebook.com/danny.kundzi...4&id=697556969
I am planning to buy myself a table and a lamp for my studies and tons of books to take from the library and to buy... can't wait to start so much material to cover... but heck I'm pumped up, my health has never been better thanks to a Hydrogen wand that a naturopath sold to me, she diagnosed me with dehydration which I suspect I suffered since childhood and most of my health problems were caused because of dehydration.
If any of you interested to read more about this amazing hydrogen stick which I recommend with the buttom of my heart go to their website: www.livingwaterusa.com it has done wonders to me and it may do the same for you.
It's amazing how people just as myself are not aware that most of the health problems are caused because of dehydration, we are not aware of it and we think we drink enough water, but the water we buy and drink today does not have all the ingredients such as minerals and hydrogen that our body needs so the water just goes trough us and we stay dehydrated, not to mention the fact that we drink sodas and coffee that dries us up completely.
This stick or wand if you like to call it changed my life and I think it's worth talking about it in my sketchbook because I'm sure some one will find it useful some day and it may change their life for the better too, now I am not advertising this stick or anything I'm just giving a testimonial how amazing it is and what improvement it made in my life. all you gotta do is put that hydrogen stick in your water doesnt matter if it's tap or mineral and it releases minerals and hydrogen into your water after 15-20 minutes.
two and a half weeks after drinking those called enhanced water I gained 5 liters of body fluids which were missing and my health problems almost disappeared, my vision problems have decreased dramatically, I feel a lot more energized and happy, my stamina is 3-4 times better then ever in my life, I went for a run last Sunday and I ran 4 times more then I ever could, even when I was 18 and was in the top shape of my life I could not run as much as I have few days ago. not to mention that my inspiration for art is back and my head is getting full with concepts and ideas that I can't wait to get them on paper!
I don't know when exactly I will be able to get back to my studies it all depends on if I get a decent steady job any time soon. for now I keep checking out your guys SB's it motivates me a lot... I made a very depressing painting few days ago to describe how I felt in the last 4 months but I don't want to ruin any ones day so I wont upload it
BlackDelphin thank you honey! always glad to hear from you
krel Dude! read my answer to ice it's worth it I promise!
JustinBeckett thanks buddy
No art today unfortunately only good music, this song describes how I feel right now
Study from life, from photos, from painting. Draw what you are interested in so you won't get bored with drawing. It is a hard mountain to climb. It is attainable. Hurricane and MindCandyMan proved that you can improve within a few years. Just hard work and dedication, as cheezy as it sounds, it works. Good luck.
Mister D is back! Ma' man! ha!
Danny i've found this site long time ago, but i've actually came back to it today. this is probably THE best way to learn about the human head without having a real model. http://www.planesofthehead.com/
I plan to get one myself. aaaah so glad that you are back and pumped for drawing. I've missed you so much, and speaking about that hyrdogen stick.
I'm very interrested in getting it. I've similliar problems, my lips are often dry, so is the skin on elbows knees and on top of the fingers. It can probably help me as much as it did you.
See you soon friend.
Thanks dude, $98 right now is not fittings into my pocketses going to do an interview for a job today, hope it goes well, sharpen your knives for me OK?
i'm pretty sure you might be dehydrated as well, it might just do wonders for you. a friend of mine is getting it too he is tired and out of energy when he gets back from work, I make Sam (my wife) drink the enhanced water all day, and today she is jumping around like a bunny and it's her 4th or 5th day drinking it, I think it's helping her too.
good luck brother it is sure worth trying man.
Keep your pencils sharp and your sketchpads open because a journey awaits!
