"You might be disappointed if you fail, but you will be doomed if you don't try"
teapo - Thanks man, yeah I got back my feet as soon as that cold went!
krysjez - Yeah youre right! I noticed it too but I didnt want to try and fix it But hopefully it wont happen again
manvin - Thanks for the comment man!
CUKIERass - hehe thanks
GEB - Thanks
benlinalexander - Thanks dude!
Wilko - Im glad I make you want to do work
Lyno - Heh, I would if it didnt take me so long to post on this site! haha. Yeah I know I have trouble when things get THAT saturated, just need more practice!
Punkie - Thanks But really I suck!
Naidy - Thanks, had to stop for a while because of college deadlines sucks.
ismo Here you are ismo just for you! Yeah that drawing, AND weve started another one already AND all my animation deadlines Phew.. Il have that mini jerusalem market sculpture plus the actual drawing soon, maybe in the next two weeks.
Ludic - Hey man thanks for stopping by, Yeah I do all my watercolor work on watercolor paper. For the smaller ones I bought a bunch of A4 watercolor sheets, chopped em in two to make them A5 and bound them together
Random digi doodle I did a couple of weeks ago.
A new painted I started for a challenge on DA but I probably wont finish it because I dont like the rules they use.
Il'ya Repin master study. (NOT MY ORIGINAL WORK)
For this I tried something thats been on my mind since before christmas! I got my color wheel and made a gamut mask, so I knew exaclty the hues Id be using and what I wouldnt. And then I made a digital color palete for myself with 10 rows of brightness and chroma. I found the colors I needed for the piece alot quicker and also because everything was numbered I feel like I got a better understanding. I hope to do alot more of these. If I get the time
Painting for the daily sketch group. I used a limited pallete but I dont think it really helped me. I need to do more to figure out how a limited pallete can help me. Maybe some quick color experiments wit no detail.
Some models. Its fun to use your hands!
I made this Pink Panther head for reference for one of my animations.
It helped alot
This is the head of the character jump animation.
A random dude, one problem with working this small is I have a tendancy to make things to big. Or maybe its just because its from my head.
And a new one Ive started for my next animation project, its Dopey from snow white and the seven dwarfs.
A tree outside my flat.
Some doodles from class
Drew this while watching a video of Ayn Rand talk.
Sketches for my next Layout project.
We all get a bit to do and when were done well put them together and .... well lets just say the drawing will be very long!
No one wanted to draw the desert, so I got the whole thing to myself The desert can be lonely.... lol
And heres what Ive done so far, going to be a good few changes before its done. Need to go back to the thumbnail stage briefly.
These are some sketches for my new animation project I mentioned.
We had to choose from many audio files containing dialogue from various movies. I chose the scene from anchorman when Ron (Will Ferrel) throws a buirreto out his window and hits the biker (Jack Black). Playing the role of Ron Burgandy will be Merlin from the sword in the stone. And playing the angry biker dude will be Dopey haha, from snow white and the seven dwarfs. Its been fun so far but its not going to be fun trying to animate two characters talking to eachother! Never done anything like that before.
Heres some rough drawings for a storyboard Im working on. Its going to be a short film about a man used by scientists for experimental drugs. Im planning to do it all in photoshop, except for the drawing. There wont be much animation, I want to create nice visuals.
We all had to base our story on these four lines.
I eat my peas with honey
Ive done it all my life
They do taste kind of funny
But it keeps them on the knife.
Dont ask me how I got to experimental drug testing!
And heres what I do on monday mornings! Fuckin clean up. for this assignment we had to clean up 6 drawings, that took me 6 hours in total. I was one of the people who finished quicker.
Might aswell link to my animations since Ive mentioned them so much!
Il do it in another post coz im paranoid this one will crash!
Woah crazy update! Nice to see such a huge variety of work all at once. Glad to see youre still being as prolific as ever!
Something that I noticed in seeing so many different kinds of drawings is that your linework tends to get a bit too choppy I think, you're using more strokes than is necessary which sometimes kills the gesture. Trying to use fewer exploratory lines and going for one fluid stroke wherever possible would help create a less stiff gesture.
Animation work is cool, not something I know how to critique. The short film storyboards look cool, the project idea reminded me of this experiment
SirGreenSock - I think youre right about my lines. I need to have a think about it, but your definetely right about my multiple attempts at lines, its a habit more than anything, most of the time the first line was the right one.
Wow dude thanks for that link, thats definetely helpful, I was thinking of the style of drawing and painting in the animation changing as the piece moves on but wasnt sure what to do. Maybe I should just get blizted for the trippy scenes haha.
Started workin on ChoW 232 yesterday evening. Just wanted to do a sketch... this always happens lol
The Crab man horo-show.
hehe.. epic updates malakuko :3 quite a range of works in the #185 post! it's good you're still covering a variety of fields. i particularly enjoy the 3d models. did you use polymer clay for those?
anyway, keep on going!
Teapo - Hey man, thanks. Yeah I guess I just sort of have to! Thanks yeah its polymer alright, and il use little knives and i like to mount them on something while im working so they stay as clean as possible. For me there no good as a quick reference if there dirty, uneven and hard to read.
One last update on Crab man tonight. Wont have alot of time tomorow to finsih it, but I can at least make it a little more interesting to look at and a bit clearer.
Awesome stuff. Your figure drawing and color work is fantastic.
lolbbq - thanks man still havent gotten around to it!
Stuford - Thanks
Lightpunk - Thanks!
Started working on this weeks EoW too. Dont think Il be able to finish it though. Unless I bring my tablet to where Im going this week.
Self portrait this morning to warm up.
All it did was piss me off! haha
I was happy with the colors and shading etc but I really need to draw more apparently because I fucked up the structure!
ranunkel - Thanks man Loose is good
ryanoir - Hahaha That made me lol, I get that alot. I get what you mean, in fact I know exactly what you mean. Thanks for the advice Il try again tomorow morning!
DSG painting. Spent about... 1 hour or so on this, maybe two. Nothing particular in mind, not alot of thought went into it haha. Well except for the bushes on the right, I really like them!
Also I have this feeling Im not doing enough with midtones. Looking at it, it feels like 50% dark, 40% light, 10% mid, well thats an exaggeration but you get the Idea.
Hej thx for stoping by my SB i appreciate it! i see u have done a lots of studies, i admire ur dedication! nice stuff! keep on drawing!
really nice stuff here, I am amazed on all the different medias you work with, It's genius man. Inspires me to do some good old fashion charcoal studies !
You study animation?, would be awesome to see some of your stuff, I work a little with it but on a newbie level .
Keep up the good work! Your bookmarked now ; )
I also use that site pretty cool...
Real nice sketchbook! Very inspirational.
I was just thinking about that burrito scene today! No kidding!
Got some wonderful work here! I like your disney sketch
mass87 - no problem, thanks man
BlueCardinal - thanks yeah I think doing lots of different methods is better for me, It may just be that I always get bored if Im just doing one specific thing lol, but hey nothing wrong with that! Heres a link to one animation I just put up http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5K1WddlmSNE you can find others there on my page too
wi2rd - Thanks man
pgf95 - Yeah its good, having the ability to choose between different angles is great.
Star Eater - Thanks haha thats funny, shit like that always happens to me! Heres a link to my progress on the burrito animation http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5K1WddlmSNE
PeteJ - Thanks man
Took a huge break from personal work there for a while. Too much college work.
I realised when I was uploading the pictures using CA's picture manager that I actually miss it haha which is weird.

Velocity Kendall - Thanks haha, its a screen shot of a short animation I want to do.
Did some painting today, I cant wait til college is over and I can just paint all day I really miss it.
View of outside my window, really nice day today so I wanted to paint it. My windows kind of dirty though which dulled the colors and I painted that in haha.
Also started off with a forest texture and painting around that through out which was alot of fun.
heres the texture
Thanks a bunch for your post on my SB.
I'm glad that I can come to yours and see your stuff!
You have some very nice work here! I really like your pencil style, it is very clean and well structured.
You have a good understanding of anatomy and human form and motion!
I also really enjoyed seeing the watercolors you have posted here!
Umm, I'd be the first to admit that I am a noob at digital painting, but with you asking for a thrashing and all I think that I might have some advice.. =P
like 99% of your paintings are really fuzzy and soft. They lack a hard edge and definitions.
They are not really lacking in any aspect besides that,
but it is a shame that your nice crisp detailed style that is so prevalent in your work in other media is absent in your digital work.
What I suggest is that you try working with a hard brush, round or otherwise. You could even use a chalk brush if you like those.
You should then paint using only those until you have your painting blocked out and you have basic tones.
After basic tones are laid down you should use soft brushes then.
With a method similar to this, one can pick and choose what should be soft and what should be sharp. This not only makes a more visually refined looking painting, but also allows the painter to pick and choose the focus points of the piece.
Keep up the good work! I look forward to seeing your progress!
Thanks again for your comment on my work, I would appreciate any more comments, critiques, or THRASHINGS from you in the future! =D
greyskill - Wow awesome, what a nice surprise to get a crit! Im happy you like my stuff. Yeah man, in the last few days as Ive been coming back to painting digitally again I noticed I never really do sharp outlines anywhere. For me its a matter of going back over everything after Ive done the painting and re painting certain lines to be sharper. I need to do lots of studies focusing on soft and sharp shapes. Thanks for further convincing me of this! haha.
Yeah, I mean I use sharp brushes alot but I think I have a habit of just blending everything which is weird. Also in my mind I say, its not blended if I can still see a seperation between the two tones, really bad habit now that I think of it What you say makes more sense. People will pick up on the softness I dont need to over state it!
Il definetely return the favor. Im not finished college yet though and I may forget so feel free to hound me about it! Thanks again for the crit, I love hearing things like that about my stuff.
for the daily sketchgroup, just pissin about on photoshop.
