Dude, it's been way too long since I've stopped by, but I'm glad to see that you are
making awesome improvement! Keep working on proportion and anatomy, as those are
the main weaknesses that I see, but I definitely see improvement in all areas.
Very inspiring mate, keep it up.
Your latest portrait/figure in #1387 is looking good. I like the flesh tones, and the way you painted her eyes! I think the you should try to soften the upper lip a bit, it looks a bit cut out. Keep up the great work!
Heey Guys and Girlz! =)
Sorry for the lack of updates =( I have been drawing every day though =) Been listening lots of opera music, nearly finished reading the first Lotr book =)
Can't wait for the Hobbit movie to come around, read that book so many times when I was small, can never get tired of reading it.. such an awesome story =)
Anyway.. hope you guys are keeping well =) Unmeeow =)

Ranunkel - Thank you for the compliment Ranunkel =) I'll work on improving the upper lips and make them softer =) Have fun with your next piece =)
Cheers everyone =) Good luck for your aspirations, and Have a beautiful and happy year =)
nice work man! your grasp of color and value are improving tons. my only critique process-wise is to work "middle-out" when painting. for example, in the torso guy in your latest post, you started off with a good midtone but in the next step you went straight to the lightest lights and the darkest darks immediately. this may be a good method when you're studying photos but when doing works from imagination, you won't be able to judge your values accurately. my suggestion is to slowly work your way from the midtones, gradually adding lights and darks, with the absolute white and absolute darks added last (icing on the cake, if you will).
here's a link to show you what i mean:
hope this helps and keep up the good work!
It's just way too magnificent and cool, how that dude
relaxes in a bed with his sexy looking underwear and a
beautiful look in his eyes. The way he body holds, one
can surely tell that he is a freshly baked newly melded fisherman.
He likes to fish in deep south salty lakes waters full of huge amoebas.
Your pencil skills are improving surely and strongly, just like an electric
moving stair rises in a Wallmart. Serenity on those faces can bee seen.
You did surprised the Sasquatch once again with a huge elbow to his back.
Disruption is in the air, and full flavored acidic mosquitoes will be served.
Just swung by to see what you have been up to and I have to say that the lace on the boobies in the lace and clothing painting is spot on it just completes it somehow! either that or I'm even more of a perv than I thought which is possible. Either way good work that mate very good.
all the best matey
A great kind hearted lumbering bullock

Your work is showing steady improvement. Gray scale dood is looking good...proportions and lighting are well done.
Your pencils are showing growth too...I especially liked this one>
The skull pages look really good as does the red study!
Can't wait for the Hobbit too. Read LOTR many many years ago...and loved the movies enough to buy both the theatrical version and the extended cut DVD's.
Heeey Guys! =)
Sorry I haven't been updating you guys on my stuff, but Uni takes stupid amounts of my time =( Been busy with 3d, check my blog if you are interested =)
Tomorrow morning I have mid term assessment, praying for a pass tbh, I really would hate to repeat anything.. =)
See you guys again soon (hopefully!) =)
Eightball - Thank you for the advice and tutorial =) I'll try out working from middle values for a few pieces sure =) That is a nice tutorial btw, I particularly like how much control you have with saturation, will give this a try =) Thank you muchly =)
Zou - Aww thank you Zou, your kind words are very inspiring =) Thank you muchly =)
Lt Plissken - Lull.. you are so funny, thank you for making me laugh and I hope your comics work is going nicely =)

FACEBOOK rafid falah
I love looking through well-aged sketchbooks like these where you can see an artist grow over months and years. I'll be following you, so keep up the awesome work!
your rendering is going better and better
the first woman portrait: the eye seems a bit small no ?
but the values has a very nice gradation (keep that)
the hand is another harsh style of rendering (cool too)
i've seen your 3D: you're in the right track mate
Hey Mang! Hope you did well on the ole test!
Showing improvement with each post my friend! Blue girl at the top is subtle and well rendered. Your form and shading is improving too...that hand is a fine example.
I've been neglecting my blog but will try to update more this year and swing by yours too!
Stop by CA anytime you can...yer always welcome as far as I'm concerned!!
Ciao fer now friendo!

You have surely felt the blaze of tendering power
through your hand as you kept drawing all those things.
Merciful deep frosted advanced glance as your improvements
started to dance. A drawing down, a drawing frown, your
drawings all day long. Magic broom, hectic fume
may your work serve as our final doom.
Sorry I haven't been updating much, had my midterms, teachers said I could get a first, and I'm on a 2:1 atm..
but I really want that fucking first =) Going to work 1000000000000000 million times harder now in 3d and UDK =)
Drawing when stuff is rendering =) Also watching an old movie called El Sol Del Membrillo (or Dream of Light),
it shows Antonio Lopez Garcia painting a quince tree, pretty interesting stuff,
couldn't be arsed to mess around with vhs so torrent it if you're interested.. =)
See you guys again soon =)

Hey Kunfoowiz, sorry for not dropping by earlier.
I can definitely tell that your pencil work is looking better. The lines are more confident now, and more importantly, the figures are starting to create authentic negative spaces.
The 3D work is good, but I think you can do more work on the materials. Also, the tone down the speculars on the floor slabs if you can. By that I mean just select something less 'white' for the specular lighting. The intensity can work if they are moist.
It's good to see you updating regularly, I should've dropped by earlier. Take care.
Oh, those 3D environments and renderings!
They are divine! Please tell me the software that you
are using for those. Tell me, tell me, please tell me quickly.
I want to try to create some amazing things myself.
Your improvements over the time became fantastic.
He-Man can feel the power around your house.
LtPlissken, if I'm not wrong, that would be the Unreal Development Kit. In short, UDK. It's a beast of a kit, very versatile, and it's also free to use, I believe.
See the kind of games that have been developed with it here:
And if it's a tutorial you want, start here and keep going:
Hope this helps.
Also, Kungfoowiz, I'm sorry for replying in your thread. If you feel this is inappropriate in any way, let me know; I'll delete my post right away.
Hey man, just stopping by here again.
I lovee that sketch of the sink man with the single lines. Do more of that stuff, looks awesome and really good for making you think bout how shit really is.
Also take a bit more care with your pencil rendering, someone said to me render an egg. Was pretty hard but that kind of stuff is good for getting your rendering more delicate.
your last post with a painting looks sick!its finally paying off man!sweet!
