#n1frit - Dima, thanks for the visit and the kind words. I thought of rendering my lines, so I'll upload some in the future !
&Psychobuddy - I was trying to slow down with my pencils and drawing less lines than necessary, I think it seemed to work somewhat :p Thanks for the visit!
I think I'll call this long study done. Although one of her legs is truly a mess, I got tired of this study and decided to move on to happier pastures upon which I can greedily graze.
p.s- need to upload some pencilery, it's been a while
Tiz' good to see all the gestures (bridgeman!) etc, new characters, enviros, and studies etc!
The knight turned out very well IMHO...and I've seen the image of the girl in the last post...and think you've capture her well!
As for abandoning images...often I let things "rest"...and then come back to them at a later time with a fresh eye and energy...and add some polish and bling. < Captain Obvious
Shame about the animation school. I like the latest study; the flesh is done quite well. You need to work on how to render different textures as the clothes don't look like they have any. Push it a bit further and get over the boredom factor.
@Jephyr X - Hey Jephyr! Unlike yourself, I never came back to old stuff. Though, thinking of it it could be fun. Especially if there is a huge gap of time in between.
@Black Spot - Yeah, the Animation school is a real shame. But no matter, other opportunities that are promising will reveal themselves.
I really wanted the texture of the clothes done too, but I was really having a hard time doing everything else. It's probably not an excuse, so I'll do my best next time
Hey! I'm going to update more frequently and hopefully get around my phobia of scanning pencilery (this darn scanner ruins everything!!@ arghgh)
I can't upload everything that I do since there is just too much of the same repetitive stuff, mainly figure studies.
My teacher told me my women don't look feminine enough and even sometimes appear masculine and suggested that I study Frazetta's women and derive some more understanding from his women. Frazetta's women are simply incredible, they're also hard to figure out. I can in theory understand what makes them what they are, but it's hard to incorporate all the things I love about them in my own drawings.
I hope my cup isn't too full. I'll have to buy a bigger one if it is. A mug. A mug to mug people with. People that know how to draw sexy women and stuff. Stuff. Stuff. Stuff.
Anyway, DUMPing sketchies...
I haven't checked here for a while, so I am really surprised now *v* What an improvement.
Last sketch is very dynamic, full of movement :>
Well I guess I am going for those memory studies too, it seems to pay off big time
(ok now I said I would do it so that means I really will have to do it :>)
Cool, you're tackling Frazetta. It will be a challenge but you should learn alot.
Try to analyze how the compositions are designed as well as how the shapes of the bodies are designed. These are related.
Good luck dude
nice gunslinger dude, ur sketches have really good movement and looseness to em. i have always loved frazetta even tho my dad hates him because of his subject matter, another reason why i have a hard time relating to him. as far as im concerned hes an big part in the history of art and that shit rhymes. keep it up man
@Sushy - Check more often, even if you don't comment
Now that you're committed I'll expect to see such works from you, so don't be lazy about it !!
@p sage - It is so far a great challenge, I think I theoretically understand what makes his women what they are but when it comes to the practice of drawing something similar I trace back the old patterns that are my own. Well, I guess more practice is at hand !
@Jesus Food - Is your dad an artist as well? If so then it's pretty awesome My dad is an accountant! You can pretty much guess what he wanted me to be!
A small and quick screen cap study -
An Illustration I've begun today. CC will be printed, framed and hung on the wall. First time I'm trying to integrate a background and a shadow of a plot inside an illustration of mine (were they called illustrations before that? Nah, prob not).
I really like your pencil sketches, the last one...guy with two guns, has a lot of attitude and action going on. Also keep doing those studies !
Your last illustration has a lot of perspective and anatomy issues. The waist area of the woman isn't working at all....i did a quick anatomy paintover on your last illustration....i hope you don't mind. Maybe it helps

I agree on the lack of butt, especially when your sketches further up have them in abundance.
Good to see You're trying new things, You're doing well but still need to draw more from life, especially people... Maybe You'll invite girl to do longer pose for You? Keep grinding!
@Delmar - Hey! Thank you for the enormous help !
I tried to fix what you pointed out and what some others did on a different forum, but I ended up messing the whole piece. I'll give it an another try because I don't wish to give upon it so easily. I just got frustrated for messing it up so easily, but I'll beat this thing into the thing I want it to be!
@Black Spot - This is actually strange. I guess I get lost when I do digital.
@hu-ha - Ha, I should be looking for such friends! The grind must continue *grinds teeth*
So, there shall be updates!
I'm getting tired of the "real" job routine, but soon I'll be able to drop a huge chunk of its weight off me and concentrate more on art. Yippie yay!
Whoah!! those are some really impressive sketches, damn I'm jealous haha, the prespective ones are just....wonderful and the poses and the characters are just.... I don't know If I should use this word but I'll call them orgasmic...absolutely fantastic
@Jessibelle - Thanks Jess, your kind words move me
It's one of those flat headed pencils, I think they're called carpenter's pencils. Here, I took a photo of my pencil -
@Kaihartj - Mucho Gracias!! I once told a girl that her painting was sexy, she didn't quite understand what I wanted :p
Trying my luck with the character of the week.
Plus, a photo of the pile of sketches I've done in the past year or so.
Oh, good morning! And ... I'm off to work place.
I like the lines in your work
In CHOW piece you character have small left arm, I'd work carefully on both his arms and their placement.
Hips are back and that's a nice pile of sketches to look back on
@Matija Vuk- Thanks! Much appreciated
@hu-ha- Thanks, though I abandoned the CHOW.
@Liberty- That's a mighty pencil, though it's very hard (4-6H I think, not sure)
@Black Spot- Yeah it is nice, hopefully I'll produce the double amount of sketches in the next years.
Well, here's in an update. I'm going away from three weeks abroad and will be aiming to draw all this time
Will update more regularly when I come back, I should remove the load of my regular job by 40% too when I'm back.
Yayyyy, here are some draweringers.
Hey big V... those studies are looking really solid... and your imagination stuff is improving. Would like to see some finished work at some point (wouldn't we all?) but keep going on in the sure way. Those stacks of drawings are killer too!
The most inspiring messages you could hear right now have probably already rung in your ears several times... just keep after your dreams, man. Peace.
Hope you have a nice trip and look forward to seeing all your sketches.
@kevin_ - Thanks mate, more stuff coming up in the future
@p sage - Hey Chad, good to see you back
Your words are motivational and really help me along my sure way (that I doubted so many times), thanks for everything
@Black Spot - Hey Black Spot, hope you're doing ok Thanks for the visit !
Ok, I'm back from Ukraine. Actually, it's been a month since I got back but CA was down and I noticed it was up only recently. So I gathered some sketches from the trip and some new stuff to post.
The first drops of rain hit the ground yesterday and it rained just a wee bit today. Not sure if you can call it rain, but concentrated moisture sure landed from the sky for a few seconds this morning.
Anyway, a bit of imagination stuff-
Heyy nice to see you've polished your digital from #475. My only crit are too saturated trees - give em more muted colours. Love your doodles, especially how many different faces You can come up with, also you're getting better with envios too! #476 has very nice details but i think vanishing points are too close and it feels quite unnatural.
Love all the pen drawings, man. Very energetic. Did you live in Ukraine at any time?
From my vantage point, you keep getting better; the lines and shapes look more confident all the time.
RE: Doubting... If you haven't gotten your weekly dose...
...just go back to the start of Mr. Delicious' thread and compare with his latest stuff. That should be enough doubt-killer for a year
I did two chapters for my graphic novel. Style is easy-going and loose, I'm enjoying it.
@hu-ha - Thanks Sis. Yeah, those two vanishing points are too close. Should've put the other one outside the page. NVM that now, will remember for future works
@Sushy - A soviet potato farmer photo just for you, Suz.
@p sage - Yeah, I lived in Ukraine until the age of 8 and then we moved out to Israel. I'll check that SB and yours as well
