cool stuff man. when you are using ink, sometimes your lines detract from what you are trying to show. for example, the portrait one post up. I squint, and it all looks really good and clear, but with so many lines all over the place like that, its really playing tricks on my eyes when im looking at it normally. Of course, this could be your stylistic intention, so maybe disregard, but my 2 cents. I'll keep watching your thread though, good stuff.
I self-published a book on the fundamentals of drawing from life.
@jetpack: Thanks I know what you mean about the lines... at the beginning I had pretty clean (not distracting) lines, but I kept adding and adding to put some depth into the drawing. I had to add a LOT since the pen is so thin (0.4mm) It doesn't look so confusing in the original tho since my scanner messed up the contrasts..
here are a couple more:
quick sketch (about 15-20mins):

Thanks. I know man... it really does look so... even more so with the shading messed up by my scanner. It's not as bad in the original tho

Thanks Glad you like it - to be honest I'm only half finnish
Thanks man, I'm flattered
Thanks. I'll have to finish the "dance of the dead II" thingy till next wednesday for uni, so there'll soon be an update regarding that So far I've only made one study/sketch.
thanks for stopping by peeps
so here we go:
a quick telephone doodle I just did... thought I could as well post it :
bee-thingy-concept (got bored half way through the drawing, but had to finish it for the sake of simply finishing it):
another one for the portrait book. Not really satisfied with it, concerning likeness and facial anatomy :/
sketches for "Dance of the Dead II" I did during writing/fonts class - w/o reference:
Oh my... finally I got to scan some stuff... I'm so busy right now, so please forgive my not posting - those who care
@sanby: thank you for your kind words
So here's some of the things I've been up to lately
quick sketches from historical paintings we did in class (about 10 mins each):
some idea sketches I did for graphic design class:
a concept, that started as another fun-battle with Soja - we weren't quite clear about the topic, so we didn't finish the battle - finished the drawing tho Re-Design of a Warhammer(Dawn of War) Space Marine:
and finally my first draft of "Dance of the Dead II" - my prof didn't like it tho, so I have to redo most of it (sorry for the really bad photograph):
C&C as always very welcome
thanks for looking
hey, man.... you def. have some really cool things going on here.... I like your prgression.. keep up the good work..
Thanks If it wasn't so time and money consuming I'd love to do way more of those copic drawings... I really like working with markers.
here's a somewhat larger dump from the last couple of days (just not enough time for scanning):
inspired by life
I scrolled through all that and I HAVE to leave a message.
You have such an incredible touch that it passes the line of "inspirational." Keep posting!
He who asks is a fool for five minutes,
but he who does not ask remains a fool forever.
thanks man, your words really flatter me! Glad you like my stuff
hope I'm not boring you with this, but right now I'm really into protraiting... so
here's another portrait of a friend (sorry, a lot of shading lost due to my bad scanner)
and yet another SP (with markers)
rrrrr, looks strong but your left cheek is a hole, hope not in reality
the portraits are coming along nicely.
btw, I´m really impressed by your _just_few_lines_ skeletton drawings, will try this when I have them really fixed in my mind looks very loose and confident.
