Damn, you're good) I've got to study anatomy to
here is my sketchbook
[@ Vatsel: Thanks, yeah, I know I screw up with that. I never really take the time to focus on clean lines and do the shading after. I usually jut mix and mingle.. And that screws stuff up.. Bad habbit of mine
@ Umbinc: Haha, thanks "good" is rather relative, I suppose.. So I wouldnt really call me good xD But whatever.. Thanks
More sketchbook pages. Sorry for the bad quality
@ Krysjez: Thanks for stopping by, I appriciate it!
Sorry for the bad quality, taken with a crappy camera.
Sketches done in a museum.
Another Inkt Sketch
More Abstract ink Work, sorry for the bad quality.
@ Matt: MOOAAHRRR!!!
@ CGaddict: Glad you like 'em, thanks for stopping by
Another Inkt sketch, still experimenting a lot with the material
digging the exirements man need to do more of that myself
keep burning those pencils and wacom nibs
till next time
sketchbook updated October 6th
Yeah, I really like some of those experiments as well.
Keep posting stuff. Lets see some more of those sketches and thangs. =)
Just have fun.
@ Omerta: Thanks for the reply.
Experimenting with new things can be a lot of fun, but it's often a really big pain in the ass too.
Because things dont go the way you want them to
Thank you, I'm glad you like them
Hey, thanks for stopping by my sketchbook.
I like a lot of your stuff. Some have a cool mood to them (like the most recent ink drawing). The main thing you could work on right now is your rendering. It seems to be a bit scribbley, instead of descriptive. Think about forms before you put down a tone, remember to go around the form if you want to make it look like it has bulk. If you haven't already, I would suggest checking out Loomis's books (you can find them free on the internet).
Keep up the good work!
@ FraserMcT: Thanks for stopping by, I know my line quality is scribbly and that sucks a lot..
I keep hearing it from other people too.
But It seems i'm in some kind of rot, and I cant get out..
I'll have to try harder
@ Seage: Thanks!
It's a lot of fun to try out new things
Sometimes a bit frustrating as well, but it evens out in the end
The drawings are full of energy in here, and I think your abstract work is a nice break from the studies. I'm not sure what to say at the moment, haven't really looked at your work yet. For now, I would just say keep up the sketchbook pages. You are doing fine for now. Keep well bro. =)
@ Kungfoowiz: Thanks for the kind words mate. I appriciate you stopping by!
Since I havnt done digital work in a while (not to mention digital painting) I had to get back in it a bit. So I started working on a little series.
Here are 2 of them, It's a lot of fun. Experimenting with mood, colour and saturation.
Oh, and clouds are awesome...
And more of the funky clouds
Those ink sketches are amazing! And those pencil sketches are getting better. Keep up the good work.
I think youre onto something with those ink experiments, keep at it. The digital color exploration is looking very interesting as well. I get the feeling youre learning a lot doing this stuff. Something i ought to look into...
Your abstract stuff is pretty sweet - I've always supported experimenting with different mediums and stuff.
I would advise to keep up those figure studies, though. Just keep posting! Your sb's lookin' goood.

These colour/photo/cloud studies are reallly nice. They have a real good atmosphere to them.
I can see some really nice environments or something coming out of these when you start building up layers of large landscapes and shapes in those colours. Maybe using similar techniques. Very mystical and fantastical.
Good stuff dude!
Cheers for sharing these, they're good inspiration.
Really like those cloud mood pieces. Crazy colors that make my mind wander into dark places.
As for your sketches in your sketchbook, I have a little tip if you do so wish to take or leave. When you're moving that pencil around or studying, don't do the dreaded little scribble lines. Make your motion fluid and don't let your pencil/pen off the paper as much. Even if you get the face proportions wrong, the gesture is what counts. You can always fill in detail later or draw the face 200 more times better. The gesture is what you're studying on a face or something with motion to it. If you're detailing something out then by all means fill it in. Though try to keep that pencil stuck to the paper.
Like I said, take it or leave it. The more you draw the more you'll see what I mean and hone your skills into something you love to do every time you put something to paper. Chairs!
@jaravine: Thank you kindly
@Jason Scanlon: Glad you like it! Thanks for visiting
@Dana_T: Thanks. Yeah, those studies will have to be continued, but I like doing them, so that's alright
@PHATandy: Yeah, I can imagine that too, glad you like it!
@MattGamer: I'll take it. It's actually that the one thing that I get told the most, but it seems like it takes a hundred and one times for it to get through that stupid little head of mine I'll really have to dedicate myself to it. Though I feel like i already failed for not posting the start in this post... I don't like making false promises, so I'll have to get the show on the road. Thanks for taking your time to write a convincing reply
So, one thing that I did do was a painting. I havnt done any paintings for way too long, wich is a shame. because I really love doing it. Though I feel I need to do it far more often to improve.
Here it is!
I know there are a lot of mistakes in the anatomy, but apperently I was just too eager to start, I wasn't in the mood to do any studies in advance.. I just kinda jumped right into it.
And yes, it did result into something different than I had in mind.. Stupid me for not preparing properly
It turns out nice, I think. I don't know how you really wanted it to be, but with that stroke marks and, especially, the colours, the anatomy accuracy isn't that important, imo. I personally hoping for even more distortion and exaggeration in the pose. In all, I'm quite liking what I see here, plus it's traditional... and even more pluses, you've gain experiences
I had (have?) the same problem with my sketches, I find that training with a biro and making a concious effort to only use one line to describe the form/shape (even if it's placed wrong) I'm seeing helps a lot to stop the scribbly quality. Keep going!! enjoying the abstract experimentations.
lens flare renaissance
@ Witcrack: Thanks, well... One thing that turned out very differently from what I imagined was the colour. But it was quite intresting how fast there were just too many colours collapsing with one another. So I did learn a few things from it
@ Koto: Thanks for stopping by Well. If it helped you become as great as you are now, I should do it a lot more myself!
As for the lack of updates. I just pretty much summed up my first 7 weeks on the art school I started on. The feedback I got was pretty intresting (and true) from the teachers after this quarter of the year.
The most important thing is to not run on auto pilot while drawing (or anything else in art).
And I should set assignments for myself more while drawing and doing studies.
Anyway.. didnt get up to scanning my work.. So here are 2 photos for the sake of not updating without work!
@ lolbbq: Thank you
