I really like that in programs like Sai or myPaint (dunno about painter, and opposed to Photoshop) that the current centre of the piece remains as you flip.
So I do it ALL the time
flip flip flip flip ~ (H in sai, something else in myPaint and it also has a hotkey for vertical as default, but I assume you use Photoshop).
Anyway good lines in the last piece - I like the angry man with the open hand ~ (leaning left , even the house do )

Medusoid - thanks man!! -also, if i dont say it outright each time, i really appreciate all the stops you make in here. so big thanks bro!
dan liimatta - no photoshop. i have always used painter. haha yea even my houses lean to the left! WTF!!! shit i gotta sort this out... thanks for dropping by as always man!!
some Muy Thai studies (quick as hellllll!!!)
line art for a weekly challenge... and the values so far.
I like the boxer/martial artist-type character in your most recent post.
Everything is better with dinosaurs.
Brandon Pilcher - thanks man! -but those are just studies from a muy tai boxing website.
S Ciaffaglione - thanks man!! i really love comics.. cant wait to see some of yours!
a sketch for a friend, mr dan lambert.
I like the top central fighter - nice pose and line work - and overall good studies.
Blanka is nice - albeit feels perhaps a bit stiff (but cool anyway).
I kind of like the faces on the last one - esp. the guy to the right - the centre one also works but I think the cloth feels a bit stiff - as do the hands (is it the hands of the other two, or does he have hands for pouldrons?
Anyway they don't lean (or at least not as much - a tiny bit with Blanka and the guy in the middle )

Coming along fucking winningly (new word, trademarked!), especially love the use of value with the lighter hands against the dark of the cape, those hands are very well painted as well.
I do have a few crits, compositionally having the 3 pointy hats at pretty much the same level is bugging me, I'd suggest carving down the 2 receding ones so the central one is tallest. Also as a purely personal preference, I think the noses of the 2 background characters would look better a bit more prominent and pointy :p
Love it though, your linework and energy continue to bemuse me
Other than that, love it
dan liimatta - thanks man! those are old woman- not men. haha. buts thats ok, because they are supposed to be ancient.. as old as time.
danlambert - thanks a bunch man!! really appreciate the crit! - i felt the same way about the hats being at the same level. i tried to fix that.
sketch (unfinished) of nightmare from Soul Calibur. and an update on The Graeae.
Good work in here.
I think the shading on the lower left and lower right of the front woman's hood is causing it to look flat. It's also pretty much straight horizontal, which adds to the effect.
If you showed a little more of the underside of the hood and had some reflected light catch in it, you might be able to pull off the depth illusion better.
Cheers and have fun
p sage - thanks for the crit man! i see what you mean, but i already have submitted it for the weekly challenge. oh well, thanks!
floydshayvious - heeeey brotha! yea been a while! thanks man!! i gotta work on it alot more though tbh.
the newest DSG sketch.

I just googled up "graeae"
and I realized that they should be
females. Well on your painting and wip
I was thinking all the time that they are males.
strangedawn - thanks!!
n1frit - thank you!!
LtPlissken - haha well they are supposed to look ancient, but maybe i did give them too masculine a look. oh well. thanks Plissken!
i saw a cool post on an art blog, and the artist had a stack of his traditional sketchbooks on his desk. i thought it would be a cool idea for other artists to do this also. heres a few crappy iphone pictures of my stack! 42 of em!! i was surprised at how many i had, and everyone is filled from end to end. and this isnt even including the one that i gave to my brother, or the one i gave to my sister.
Haha was it my pile on zgs? I think yours is higher anyway! Nice collection haha!
Anyways, great stuff lately man, Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook so often.. I have no idea why I haven't returned the favour earlier.. I really appreciate it!
Keep posting man, I'll be looking!
haha YES! it was!! i was going through it quickly, and forgot who had posted it ha sorry for not giving credit. but its a cool idea! thanks for dropping by man!
keep it up man glad your still flying on with work!
To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.
LtPlissken - ha thanks! -all in good time!
NyeAlexandaFrayne - thanks man!!
my painter program has shit the bed on me. not so happy about that. no more digital work for a while unfortunately...
you sir, are a MANIAC!!
In what time period did you make those sketchbooks, a year, 5 years, 4 months, what time are we talking about here? I don't like how lazy you make me feel
But my finals are over, i'll catch up to you... some day!!
Anyways, i really like the Bison sketch but eventhough they're just sketches you have to mind the anatomy, guile for example is very "wobbly" (that's a word right?) Bison works better ebcause of his simplicity, sometimes it's better to just give the gesture of muscles instead of doing it overdetailed.
