Very cool stuff, the tonal qualities of your work's what gets my the most, the balance and value of the darks versus the highlights. Keep it up!
@The_Flying_Dutchman - Thanks amigo :>
from the sketchbooks,
you'll recognise some of that stuff, fo' sho', sorry 'bout the crap quality.
Bridgman if I'm not mistaken! Great studies and sketches. You have a lot of talent.
Beautiful, those pencils at the bottom especially. waiting on oils.
I am absolutely in love with your block-iness---- I am a great fan of that rough look!
Did some figures, couple there are hampton copies, others photos, no life drawing for me at the moment :< But that's gonna change soon
Sorry for the crappy phone photos. I lost my camera charger, will go buy new one.
@jondawo - there are some bridgman in there indeed, thank you!
@Sean McClain - Thanks pal!
@Mane - Cheers my friend! will come, eventually
@LordLouis - Thanks dude, in-love's a big term, warms my heart!
@in2eternity - Thanks!! Definitely will
ok, just finished this, now sleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep D:
THIS IS SPARTAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
meh, lame weekend.
love dem lines and how you rendered that last painting. Fcking raaaad
To me, this is inspiration on a high level. Especially the pencil sketches. And if I shall go into even closer particulars, I'd say the top right corner sketch of a man's face i profile view in #32 is really good.
Ahhh dude awesome. Beautiful strokes in your digital really really great. The form and render on your pencil is really nice too. Just super nice stuff in here. Keep going it's all good
GREAT \o/ fucking 5 stars *o* I loved the last one

strkja - Thanks!!!
JaneMag - Thanks a lot! It's funny how we people see stuff differently, I actually don't really like that sketch.
TFsean - Kudos Sir. Thanks for stopping by and for the ah, approval
Fernteixeira - Thanks dude!! \o/
So here's some crap quality sketches as per usual.
And, I decided to keep rendering that chick. I feel like whenever I render for more than three-four hours the pieces start losing their magic. Still trying to figure out how some people make these extremely well rendered paintings and still have them be dynamic and good. advice welcome on that ye :>
As far as trying to not loose rhythm as you work, i find that as i render i have to remember that all im doing is consolidating shapes into being more precise, and so you have to kind of identify why its dynamic in the first place and preserve that. It's easy to spend ages detailing, and change something without remembering why you made it like that in the first place. i think a good example is under her left breast there was a nice sharp line, and it added flow to that, but you removed that in polishing and that area is a bit weaker because of it.
Another thing i do is i have layers showing my progress at the bottom of my psd's which i alt click on the eye, and i flick between new and old and try and work out what changes were for the better and what ones were worse.
man this is an extremely inspiring sketchbook. i myself am milling through anatomy study after study and this definitely motivates me to trek on! the last pencil sketches you posted are my favorite.
Man, very nice pencils in there. I also like the colours and edges on that rendering of the woman. Keep that up.
Muz - Thanks for the suggestions dude! I definitely keep version layers, too.
ManHands - Sir, I am honored to serve as an inspiration! Thank you.
FUSHANDCHUPS - Thanks a lot!
merl1n - Thanks dude (:
Okay so here's that lady, I kinda gave up on it, did a ton of experimenting, learned some stuff, got frustrated with other stuff, for what it's worth;
Now I've been doing a lot of auto sketches lately, most in pencil which I'll upload tomorrow or something. Here's one study I did from a book called Design Sketching which a friend of mine was kind enough to lend me. Took some sweet time on this; like 5 hours
more industrial stuff from design sketching
a 6 second portrait of the girl who sits next to me at work.
Brilliant studies! The Rockwell colors are (to my eyes) nearly spot on! You captured the spirit of it anyhow. Haha, is that a Col-Erase I spy? I love doing figure drawings with those. They really force you to be more sensitive to line quality. Great portraits as well. You really pay attention to the form's planes - an area which I struggle. >_<
Wow, your work is incredibly good! We're talking high quality here!
Your sketches and images inspires me to work harder.
Thanks for sharing!
I love your art!
-Especially the environments
Maybe you don't like the image quality of your camera (phone?), but I can still see how great your studies are!
jorvaa - Thanks a ton! Some of these were done with Col-Erase indeed
Greenhouse - Thanks for that! I'm honored to have gotten you inspired
Trixtar - Thanks a lot! Yeah, my phone's camera really bad, thanks for looking past that!
f1x - Thank you Sir!
Some auto design thumbnails, I'll do a few more and then I'll render one, getting hard to pick when you do a few of these
Wow, great sketchbook. I especially love your pencil stuff. Some pretty wicked auto designs too! *_*
nice cars PP
Ashley Dae, theUNKNOWNsketcher Thanks guys :>
Just some more thumbs
Wooow - your pencil work is just beautiful. That lady is looking pretty awesome, too!
Please drop by my sketchbook and help me improve!
@bobtail - thanks muchhhh! :>
Took one of the thumbnails, drew some cleaner lines, and started rendering, I started out with colors, but as I stumbled into too many problems, I decided to work with value only and perhaps add color later. Let's see where this goes in a couple more sit downs
