Hey nickybeats it was cool of you to of stopped by. This sketchbook has lots of cool ideas thanks for sharing.
RBeek - thanks alot man!! i appreciate it!
dlincoln83 - thanks man! im getting there...
Alien Space Cloud - hey, no problem! thanks for the return visit!
heres the direction im taking him at this point... trying to keep it similar to the original, but with more of a feudal japan style to it. i didnt give him a wakazashi, because he has a magic staff too. but id love to make a couple quick comic pages of him fucking people up in some ancient japanese battle!! that would be awesome... if only i ever finished anything.
dude! Progress = outstanding. Dig the hind particularly - really like the soft/hard edges. Good shit. Keep goin!

Hey, sorry for not dropping by for a long time. The latest updates are looking extremely nice. I absolutely love the chopper study. Also, I like the Musashi work, I like how you retained the overall shapes of Inoue sensei's work, and yet went your own quirky way with the style.
Keep updating; you're doing very, very well. At least, that's what I think.
great work! Subscribed! My only crit is on the chopper. The lines look a little too organic.
I just noticed this dude but you gotta watch that frame, even if you like how it looks whe the character goes out of the frame, it makes it look "silly" or overly playful. Dont ask me why but I've heard this from a number of concept artist and I do agree with them.
I dunno, your choice in the end man, but food for thought right?
SuperSwank1 - thanks man!!
SMILEFACE - haha thanks, yea he is a BAWS.
Vritra - thanks very much!! im glad you like it!
heartcore - thanks! and yea, i was gonna tighten it up, but got a bit lazy.
Medusoid - i hear ya, personal taste i guess.
RBeek - thanks man! slowly but surely!

by the way I meant what I said as just a quick little blurp not like a real hard look at your work so dont take it too seriously. I hope it didnt come off as an attack or anything ^^
oh and thanks for popping by my DA page I should really try harder to keep up here but I have such limited time now that its hard to deal with the amount of attention it takes.
RBeek - thanks! hint taken.
NiaLain - thanks!! yup number one was my fav too.
Malepart - thanks man! glad you like it!
Medusoid - why you little fart sniffer!!!!! thats it. were broken up... haha
Hey Nicky! Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook. You have some wicked line work here. I love the pen drawing of Musashi. I think in time your digi work will and traditional work will start to blend more so be more of a cohesive style but its all up to experimentation, discovery and practice practice. You are doing all three and thus are on the right track
DUDE this new one's kick ass man!
love the forced perspective on the staff, keep makin that epic art man
oh and just outa curiosity would you mind doing a flat colored peice for me? (like no paint style just solid cartoon like style. Your style makes me think you'd be great at it
woops, posted at the same time! didnt see it before - but thanks man! glad you dig it! i can get something like that going i think. anything you had in particular?? maybe youll get a quick freebee outta me cause your so awesome!
lol its fine dude, nice update btw,
oh alrighty how bout Spike Spiegel from CowBoy Bebop or Augumon From digimon (still got a soft spot for that show )
Im glad you've acknowledged my awesomeness as well XD nah i kid, i kid
Medusoid - ha! hell yea man! Spike Spiegel is the man! when i get a free second ill bang something out for ya bro!
LtPlissken - haha thanks man!!
RBeek - haha, hes got glowy eyes! im a sucker for glowy eyes...
got a SWEET paintover from COLD, so i decided to rework the image a bit. bye bye linework! boo hoo. oh well, i think this is gonna look better anyways! linework can sometimes hinder creative painting. so well give this a shot!
shout out to COLD for the love! cheers buddy!
WOW, This is really cool stuff. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that style NickyBeats, keep it comin.
haha! Love the perspective on this. Looking goooood!
Instead of just saying thanks for commenting in my SB, I decided I'd rather be disparaging and give you a crit. I hope it is helpful.
First I did a rather insulting caricature of what your monkey king piece might look like in profile. Then I took a quick reference photo—sorry for the cropping, my studio isn't big enough to take full body shots. And then I did a little drawing based on that and put in some explanation stuff. Obviously this is not the exaggerated comic style you're going for, so just take it generally.
