I know what you mean about getting distracted by the holidays, I think all of us are
influenced by some Christmas Santa feasting spirit. But I am glad that you pulled of some
nice concepts, even when it’s party time. Excellent sword design, I think that you have
the great ability to design unique weapons and armors. All the best in the future, have
a lot of things that you want and what you love.
Syle thx alot, k heres more .
LtPlissken oh thx, i'm trying to do more personal work, concepts and stuff. Have to break some bad habbits first .

Nicely drawn figures man, good work. sexy gestures too, keep 'em coming.
Haha, so those were the expressions you were doing the other night when we were on skype, they look great , Also love the illustration on the last page and the creature head in the last post, would love to see how you go about constructing heads, gonna have to spam you with questions haha

Those last heads are very cool ! Keep it up !
Love your work! keep it up!
Hey Lakai! Nice SB! If your searching some more reference material for facial expressions I can recommend you "Facial Expressions" A visual Reference for Artists by Mark Simon. It containes hundrets of images and also shows the various expressions from a few diffrent angles. Furthermore the models are of various age and ethnic groups.
Matelo hi thx mate, already have it its a great book. But i think the exaggerated once help me the most atm.
Izzual thank you
will123will your welcome to ask questions .. dont know if I'm that helpful tho
Sean McClain thx for the kind words.
still struggle with my linequality. Any ideas how to improve on that besides drawing like a maniac?
Haven't too much to show, I experimented alot lately dont gonna show that stuff I think it would be rather boring to look at random forms and stuff

great stuff lakai ,i dont know where you see the problems with hands O.o ,go go
Hey again Lakai! I gave a look at your homepage. The pice that shows this guy in profile, who has that glowing things on the back is in my opinion your best pice and the lava spitting bug is also pretty nice, but you may want to fix the perspective of that right food of the rocket guy because it looks very awkward. I also think that you could exchange some of your portfolio pices with some of more recent work in your SB cos I think some of those are better. Some of the once from post 95 for example. Thanks for stopping by my SB by the way
Like what you are doing with the expressions, hope to see more soon. those hand studies are great as well
Those greyscale monster faces, awwwww, I am fascinated, top notch,
top notch high standard destructive things. Motivation and high power all
around. Those stitches on the fellows head, gave me fantastic ideas.
You are a king and you know that.
Keep on smudging up the mushrooms
with wet brushes from below.
Great hand, head and figure studies. Nice, succinct line quality.
Cera its not the forms i have problems with, i mean I definitly have to improve on that as well but what I'm not glad with is the line quality.
Matelo hi thanks for the advice. Yea i def. have to update the stuff on my website. I'm working on my new portfolio I gonna do that when im finished with it.

Man AWESOME expressions, great hands and gestures, and those faces are great! keep it up, loving the different head structures, maybe start on female heads?
also what about environments
Oh lakai, how do you get yo lines so fresh.
Great work Lakai, I really like your face, hands and feet studies. Your lines are so clean! Are they all 1 take or do you clean up the lines after you do like a rough sketch to get the shapes?

Geist02 i often block in the basic shapes, sometimes not depends on my mood .
Stephane i try to loosen up its pretty hard for me but i think it will pay off
