-> america220 : Thanks, will do
-> metalhead3 : Yeah, my pencils are burning and whole forests are going to be cut down because of me. Well, not really. But it's fun to imagine it so !
More stuff, I'll be working on this Loomis book intensely from now on. It's very rich in useful knowledge, so to say.
I traveled to visit my friend, and I brought only my tiny sketchbook with me (art-wise speaking) and worked mostly with my markers and mostly just for the fun of it.
Met some interesting people, drew a couple or more of them and attended a lecture in complex numbers (so complex!) just to sketch a little in there.
Scanning everything took a while. Really enjoyed these past two days, but now I'm committed to running at least 4 times a week, as part of a bet. Gosh.
Oh, going back home by train I missed my stop because I was so busy having fun drawing and ended in a different region of my country. It took me about an extra hour and a half to get to my destination!
As a continuation of the previous recent post, something not from work.
I really should practice on that Loomis book, it fills me up with strange ideas.
Just a doodle:
Charcoal Fun (I think I'm getting better at charcoal, it's really hard):
Oh, some nostalgia:
Pink Floyd - Set the controls for the Heart of the Sun (Saucerful of Secrets)
-> matty_mcmullen: Thanks, me and my pencils are something special.
-> Nonobot: Thank you I'll try "shading" or adding some watercolors in the next few works, see how it turns out.
-> n1frit: Hello and thanks!
And then engage in drawing some random portraits from the internet, listening to an advice posted much earlier in response.
And then some Loomis's "Fun with a Pencil"
So, here we go:
The Ducklord Aureliquackus the 3rd, aka - Great Lord of the Noon
Testing a new "coral" color marker I bought yesterday, first the black lines and then the coral and then the other way around.
Having a blast with the new marker -
This is some crap from work, but I promised the janitor at work, Slava (who is an ex-aeronautics soviet engineer) that I'd scan and upload EVERYTHING. Muhahaha!
(tinge of manga?)
Pete the Snake, he's like a crappy quickie.
The middle one must die, he's annoying the hell out of me!
Yeah, my posts are becoming more winded, more words less drawings. Well, I really love talking AND drawing so here I am.

Watercolors to come tomorrow, I got entranced by this book after I finished the next protraits.
My self portrait came out crappy, I should've fixated a better lightning in the room before starting the drawing. It came out a little skewed, you know.
I alternated between two pencils - 2b and 4b (both Faber Castle).
Anyway - self portrait (ref from above):
Googled "old man" and drew the first one that I liked, I think it came out rather neatly:
Googled "farm girl" and drew this one:
One portrait from imagination (you won't believe how much I learned from the last two portraits, and especially from the "old man" one - woo!):
-> n1frit: Privet! In time when I buy a tablet, I'm still testing my will to continue drawing like a madman - if it ensues, I'll be rewarded with a new tablet (of course, by myself).
Postponing the watercolors again! Allah-damnit!
Yeah, I had a sleepless (well, sincerely i had shuteye for about the first couple of hours) night, lots of stuff hampering around my silly brain. How cruel, and I have work in 1.5 hours, pfft...! I wish I knew how to meditate but instead a gulped down a gallon of coffee.
So I decided to scan some of the recent doodles & practices, though there weren't as many as I'd want (especially Loomis practices), here ya go:
(most of them look unfinished for no particular reason other than me not putting in the effort)
This one is really bad, in all its glory - but I promised to upload EVERYTHING, so here goes:
and the others -
It's been almost a week since I updated last time, naughty me!
Three little pieces, I'm going to study more of Loomis and maybe draw some cityscapes later on.
Dull is in the past -
More of Loomis, but not as much as I require -
I rarely integrate any background for my works, this time I did and it came out weak. But I did it anyway, and I'll do it again until I master those-
Lovely sketchbook. It has loads of personality.
Visit my just a tad bit strange sketchbook: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=224247
My comic "Miss Doomsday" (here on CA): http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=223608
My comic "Opey the Warhead" (also here on CA):
I met up with ex-gf today, after not seeing her in months. Was lots of fun, it's good to free your mind of falsehoods.
Anyway, I didn't have a lot of time to sketch today, but that's what I managed before bed-
Used a ref from a deviantart member (credit?), didn't come out rather good -
More loopy loomis (using the technique and my own asymptotic imagination) -
Yeah, you know how to use that pencil A tablet in your hands would be a dangerous tool, in a good way. I like your sketches with marker the best.
When shade with a pencil, try to use all value range, not only the middle tone for 80% of your sketch and adding a little the dark shades.
-> vanaga: Thanks, this is a useful tip regarding pencils. I'll try it in my next few works/studies to see if I can work it out correctly. I plan to buy a tablet in 1-2 months, soon enough!
Anyway, I started working on portfolio ideas that I'll demonstrate to several school here in my country and hopefully impress them enough so that I'd be able to study illustration or animation!
Aha, so here is a board of ideas I created today (most of them are extremely rough):
idea #1 - bug on arm (has a very imbecile sound to it)
idea #2 - Fish Tank
idea #3 - Deflower - comics like, not sure I actually like this
idea #4 - Air - this one I really like, but it's the roughest one out of the four I've done.
I need to create more and more ideas, it's time to hang around with a slip of paper and a ready pen to write anything of insane creativity that jumps to mind.
Thanks for the visit. Nice pencil work, keep it up!
Thanks for stopping by the s'book.
Hahahaha, I love your latest uploads. The fish tank pun cracks me up. I saw some familiar Loomis "blooks" Glad to know I'm not the only one working through Fun with a Pencil. What's more, you're taking the Loomis approach to your finished drawings. Good job!
Sketchbook came soon: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=226335
Diarum's tutorials: TONS OF TUTOIRALS
-> pixel cheetah: Thanks!
-> Strato: Thank you, I really enjoy reaping the benefits of that book.
The engine fires up more stuff!
Damn, I have so many pencils but I always lose my only eraser...
p.s - if it's too organized, I'm not sure I'm enjoying it.
i love this sketchbook, you have such an interesting and playful style of drawing, it's a pleasure to just look at i think you'd do great in animation actually. gorgeous pencil work, but i'm particularly enjoying the stuff you're doing in marker - i'm glad you broke out of that pencil-comfort-zone and tried them out, it's really obviously paid off
"There is a sure way"
Something about that phrase is very reassuring What I'm finding is that there are several ways; some ways are easier than others, some are better than others.
You're doing very well, especially lately. I love the 'rockin Gramma'... your pencils do you proud. Also am liking the marker work you did.
I'll be keeping an eye on this book, because big things are about to happen from you... I feel.
-> Jessibelle: Thanks, I tried some more markers today. Hmm Animation or Illustration for me, nothing else !
-> Creusa: I hope not to remain a scientist guy for much longer, but thanks
-> p sage: Thanks. "There is a sure way" is my sure way, which is simply a lot of practice and thinking some of it over and having fun. Thanks for the kind words!!
My favorite hour is nigh, so I better hit the bed- but first and update:
(37 sketches for the spartan camp challenge thingie left)
