Very nice work as always man , by the way you've just answered a thing I was wondering just 5min before coming on CA "How could I get more details and realism in my personal work" -> Do some mental library work of course ^^ ; so Thank you !
Your lines are really great ! Keep it up !

Ahhh, I'm going to be watching you more from now on. You beautiful beautiful person you. Your lines are so tasty, and those values!!! Your material studies are rocking so hard too. Jeez, you're pretty inspiring. Keep it up!
great keep it rocking lakai ;P,some material paintings for the clothes would be nice too ,i think they may help with textile when painting again?
Keep rocking Lakai. You are doing so much awesome!
For a different approach to your gestures maybe consider working from inside out (stressed by Michael Hampton et al). You seem to be quite contour based so maybe give that a try too? This way you can have a really simple armature to work on and build the anatomy on top of that the way you would when working totally from imagination. I guess .. maybe
Fantastic sketchbook you have here Lakai. You seem to have such a balanced way of studying, and of course you're making beautiful concepts as well. I really dig the character concepts.
In relation to those hand and foot studies you are doing: they all have really smooth, clean lines do you do this kind of study after you've understood the forms underneath, or do you directly start doing these and gain understanding as you go?
All the best, I'll be keeping an eye on you!
ceddo It depends on what my focus is. I concentrated more on lineweight with the hands. I propably would do really rough scribbles to understand the forms better. Thats the stuff im rarely showing here. I started the hands with basics shapes tho to also understand the forms better.
Whirly thx whirly, yea my approach on the gestures kinda sucks . I have hamptons book but im just on page 20 or so. I suppose u mean i should start with a stickfigure and then add the forms right?
Cerasela Thx good idea. I wrote it on my list. This list starts getting pretty long :/
SarSengo heres more. I'll try to post daily, k i'm not here in the next 2 days XD...
Zesiul thanks alot ^^
arghmisfit thx, yea try it at least once!
Izzual haha nice that u could get something out of it
I tried to use a bigger brush and drew smaller with the gestures. I think i did them way to detailed ... I rather learned more about anatomie instead of the pose itself. They look like crap now ... but yea its about improveing .
the composition came out great lakai ,work a bit more on the hands though , quite scary xD , go go
Push those poses darlin' http://www.theartcenter.blogspot.com...-drawings.html
Holy cow Lakai, great updates on the gestures and value stuff. Nicely executed.
Nice stuff, I love your shading/colour style and how you place highlights

THanks for the tutorial
1. First the Spine (in-out-in)
2. three major forms (head ribcage pelvis)
3. construction (turn into 3d forms in space)
4. Anatomy (add and subtract the 3d forms into anatomy)
The advantage of this is how much you can utilize imagination vs observation with what ever amount is useful to you at the time. With outlines you are only going to be able to memorise a limited amount before having to really be slavish to reference.
Also its just a method of learning the figure there is no need to be this slavish when actually painting awesome shit.
Anyway that's what I think but at the moment I am a still a crappy beginner and significantly worse than you so take all if this with a pinch of salt.
sick sketchbook. i should study smarter ha.
To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.
Hey Lakai! Sick paintings and studies . About your gestures... they are anatomically correct, but i think they can be more fluid and exaggerated. Try to use only S and C shapes and focus on body flow. I know it sounds abstract, but try to look how body parts join in kinda wave patterns Keep it up!
My sketchbook - Please, help me grow Critique very appreciated
wow dude, very cool style you've got there.. and some very nice ideas too
dude and your rendering skills are just out there! Very inspiring sketchbook to look through.
Thanks a lot for sharing, and showing some process stuff as well.
oh look who I have found :d. Really nice sketchbook, your renderings look great so far.
That last illustrations kicks some serious ass, love the expression on the guys face, not much else to say really, just keep doing what ya doing

will123will thx mate
JakehC thx i hope i gonna learn how to do it better by doing more of these mentallibary studies.
21st_Clover hey clover nice to see you here.
Harmageddon always forget to save some earlier versions :/.
jakubvavrik thx, i draw/think in c and s curves like u said i propably have to exegerate them more.
NyeAlexandaFrayne i dont think that i study smart, i just try out everything
Overtoom thank you. Have some more for u ^^
Whirly thank you whirly!
SarSengo hehe thx
Wing thx for the link very helfpul
ConnyNordlund yea i guess u learn alot about shapes that way.
Yemi775 thx alot
Cerasela scary is always good
some new stuff. The chars are still wip... like always XD
I dont know why but the characters are sorta blurry when i upload them. Does anyone know why? Its sharper when i open it in windows.
Your characters are cool and I love the expressions ! The lines are going better and better too !
Keep it up !!!
very good line poses, love your lines! About the blur issue ive seen that too but a bit different, its strange, the fact is that if i upload an image to Flickr its too sharp, actually very sharp and here looks pretty normal
Great expressions again Lakai , would love to see more gestures though also trying some drapery with it ,could benefit you into making your lines more fluid.
