Thanks for all your replies and good wishes. Even tho i didn't get much time to study as i planned, i managed to spare some time to read some books and practice my craft. Im not going for a long reply in this post. First of all, i have to visit your sketchbooks. Sorry for not visiting friends, last few months were really tough for me so, had to set my priorities away from arts and CA.
Anyways im back for good now and ready to pursue my artistic goals. Thanks agin for being with me, Ill definitely return the favor.
Im uploading some of the old drawings i scanned recently. Ill upload some of the figure drawings next week, probably. Hope you enjoy!
Nice faces despite the anatomy flaws, I so totally can't explain my thoughts and feelings about them, something that I like the subtle expressions and the design of the faces at least... And you know, when a picture isn't perfect but somewhat alive, making it better than a perfect lifeless doll when the artist wished to paint a _human_... Oh, whatever, I'm really bad with words now.
I like the hair in the last one
Welcome back man!
I felt really euphoric when I saw you online, and I
have to say that your activity here puts us into a whole new
dimension. A new motivating force is back. A new friend who
is always ready to help and to team-play. Such a beautiful
day this is. Sorry that you had a rough time in the last couple
of months, I hope that you are back on track now and feeling
pretty much ok. You have been working behind the scene I can
see that and improvements can be felt in the air. You have practiced
head anatomy didn't you? And you have some new pencil skills hidden
under your sleeves? Such a fantastic renewal.
I have no wise words now, I am feeling
happy and that's just enough.
Looking closely and waiting for your new activities.
Welcome back mate Glad to have you back I hope you start from now working like crazy You got a couple of months to catch up, I look forward to your next update. And sorry for such short comment. I'm pretty damn tired but I wanted you to know asap how happy I am. Cheers!
welcome back (: in your last post, the last three portraits are stunning. on the first one i think maybe the forehead is a bit too small? but i like the shading a lot, it's very subtle.

A small update before next week. This one popped up while i was searching for an old study piece so thought about uploading it.
Torsos and thighs are kinda okayish, sometimes impressive Other parts could be better. Watch how weight is distributed, some of your figures are definitely off balanced.
Keep practicing and you will be fine but you know it I'm sure.
I agree about the hands and feet. Don't be scared of them - they are just shapes as well.
Nice to see you back and hope you're going to continue to work hard.
Figures and shading has improved. More anatomy studies
you need for a more realistic look. We are not perfect, never
will be. So do not go for a flawless performance. Except
if you are playing Mortal Kombat.
The digital edition of your drawings are giving
them a neat old time look, I just like it.
Can you give me some brutality
somewhere in the future?
@Ramalooke - Yeah i get your point. Although i couldn't finish some of the hands and feet lessons, which made me unconfident, ill be doing a recap on anatomy soon. Thanks mate.
@shiNIN - hey thanks a lot mate. Yeah you're right about the weight distribution thing. I guess only way to remedy it to draw lots of figures like this. Anyway i have to catch up the stuff that i have forgotten in last three months. duh! wasted time, but had no choice
@Black Spot- Its good to have you back here yep ill definitely start drawing hands and feet. I'm pretty sure ill need loads of practice on that. Cheers!
@Snake- haha Good old MK. I still remember thumping the keyboard to get the Fatalities right xD. Anyways glad that you like my last stuff. About the brutality part... you're in luck mate. i got some concepts in my head already. some weapon and character designs. read more and you'll see...and hey! UPDATE YOUR SB!!! i need to see some new stuff!
Well, I just figured ill never be able to stay put while i have some spare time to draw. I just need to start working on my digital painting because i might get some freelance work in the future. I got two months to prepare so, here goes the baby steps. Just painted away in PS without worrying too much. just exploring..... Critiques and suggestions gonna save me now, so please let me hear em
Hey man, think your figures have improved a bit since your break =) Would maybe look at the other parts of the figure, for example faces or maybe hands, could start studying those abit, just a suggestion mind. Work on what you think will help you the most imho. =) Good luck with your next piece =)
Figure drawings and portraits are looking really great.
Something i've noticed in some of your figures though is that
you tend to draw their heads a tad too small and that kind of
throws them off balance.
I really like that last piece with I think (a brick under water?), great atmosphere!
Also, the faces and the anatomy studies are improving as well.. Cheers man!

Hey there mate! Much progress since my last visit. Keep upping your skillz ^_^ Little word of advice -try more saturated and powerfull colors, as well as hard and sharp lines and brushes. cheers!
Hey man, I just ragged my ragdoll so I thought I
would hop by for a beer or two. This foggy environment just
does not do any good for my health, so I guess I will have to
move to Hawaii pretty soon. Good thing to hear that you will
have some freelance work, that means some nice money.
Nice money means some good time and plenty of alcohol.
Very sweet glowing stone. What is this? Is this Conan's grave
or some Kryptonite? If it's Conan's stony grave, then I expect
that he will show up pretty soon, breaking the block to pieces.
If it is Kryptonite, then Superman will suffer big time.
I like the stuff for sure, feed us with some more hard core
environments and we will all be satisfied.
Ah, and pls. do not send Gibson, cause I am
hiding really smartly lately.
@ Kungfoowiz - Hello mate and Thanks a lot for the encouragement, Yep have to do a recap on anatomy again. Im planning it on next week, in fact.
@ Ludic - Hey there mate. Glad you decided to pay a visit Thanks for the compliments. Yeps, I have to get the balance thing properly. More figure drawings next week!
@ poetry man - Hey man, Glad that you like my first digi piece. yeah its an underwater environment. I had no idea what i was doing tho. I was just messing around
@ Aragah - Hey man thanks for visiting my SB. Yeah as you said i have a long way to go.
@ Seraph Fawkes - Hello there my old friend, its good to see you back here. Your tips are always helpful as usual. Ill be applying those techniques to this concept. For now, its at initial stage so I haven't added highlights yet. Thanks again man!
@ Snake - Well now what you've been drinking eh? Anyways now that you have put it that way Im beginning to think that 'Conan's Grave' its a nice idea after all! Well its supposed to be an underwater environment but hey never mind Maybe i just suck at this big time! lol oh btw. UPDATE UR SB OR Im sending Mr Gibson! No excuses mate! You have 3 days!
Well, here goes a weapon concept im working on currently. Its a W.I.P. and around 20% of the work is done. Ill share the story and the full details about the weapon once i finished for sure. Im slowly doing this while learning about digital painting techniques. so, critiques are welcome, as always.
Sorry for not visiting some of your SB's last week. It was a busy week, had to get some work done. But im gonna do it today n tomorrow for sure.
Few touches here and there. Ill try and upload the finished concept soon as possible.
Hope you enjoy!
Hey there, your recent updates are looking really nice. You've made a ton of progress in your figures in the last year, in your portraits especially. I think it's great that you took some time away from CA to develop yourself and returned with a fresh perspective on the human figure; it looks like that time away had a great effect on your work. My only suggestion right now (besides the obvious - keep doing what you're doing because it's working! ) is that I think you should take some time to work specifically on hands when you get a chance. You seem to be avoiding them in a lot of your sketches and studies, which usually means that's a weak area for you. Don't be afraid to create some 'bad' drawings, even if they appear to be a step back for you; sometimes that's the only way to move forward. Keep up the good work, and keep posting!
On the baby steps you posted on the previous page, you need to still push the values a lot more. Don't be insipid, grab art by its throat and shake it hard to see what falls out.
Hey are you coming ack again keep it going!
