Asoir-yep, lines are what I'm I've gotta practice more since I was getting too confident(sloppy) with colour I guess.Thx for dropping by
madplanet- Hey, man. Thx for the kind words. For my standarts I've been busy indeed had a prtfolio to prepare n such. Now I'm on vacation again. Have those up and downs in Motivation.
Glad you liked the dogs and seaside scetches. The later ones where all done from life. I had scetched out enviro of sunrise one in advance though or else it would have been impossible to capture sth. in given time. When I started out the Lighthouse one, I was actually standing inside that cave and remembered how my teacher told me to always be thinking up sth. to add or how to change the image you are beholding. Glad you liked what came out of that lesson.
The Gnoll- Thanks man. Very encouraging words. I was doing most of these as a preparation for my Illustration-portfolio hence the Illustrative approach. WHich I feel quite comfortable with. You're right, my lines are very slopy/wavy and anything else but precise need to work on that. Will restrain from colour more in near future. Need some more basics again.
Ok, here's a lzy arse update. Was tacking sort of an timeout. Mostly only attended Lifedrawing once in a while.
Wow huge, huge updates, gotta hand it to ya man, it's impressive how you are churning out these watercolor studies. And i think that this one proves that you can really tighten up and render the hell out of something if the occasion calls for it.
asspats only at this time.
good work out there, your color sense is improving
eating up anything you see eh? your production is huge man. I dont understand the last update thou.. why all that academic pastiche? If its for me dont worry.. no need to prove anything here
The pigs scene is my favourite. colors are just delicious.
I'm being taught to become an Emergency Medical Technician so I could earn some more money on the side once I'm a student some day. So I won't have much time left for art throughout the next 3 month.
joe- I didn't have any watercolours along when encountering Sophocles . Thx for the kind words. Still have a long way to go with colours. Got a new PC, hope to eather receive or buy a Wacom on chrismas so I could finally go digital.
Marioucci- I got told to wolve down anything like mars his children and it was fun for sure. Need to start working on my imagination machine some time so I wouldn't have to relly on reallity that much no more. Most of my works where done life. The lighthouse siries is a good example for it, bw-one shows the lighthouse the way it is, others where thought up but I still had it in sight (from a seashorecave for example). You're right last ones where partially done to "prove sth. to people" but I aslo felt like getting the basics tightened up some more. I needed to practice my pencils and rendering too. Thx for dropping by.
First is my Nov1st.-sp-entry (yeah.....I know......)
Great watercolor thread man,
I have been practicing watercolors too.And they sure are fun eh.FIgure drawing look strong.Too bad you wont have much time left foe art in the coming months.
The one that Joel pointed out is sweet and tight just like he pointed out. Good job on the folds in the cloth, too. I also feel that your backgrounds are getting interesting, like with the man playing the trumpet. The background colors flow in with the figure as if to the rhythm of the music. And the last two as well. Did you actually tear the paper or did you paint it that way? It's hard to tell on my monitor, but it looks good.
I hope everything goes well with your training and good luck with that and hopefully you'll be able to cram in some sketches in between what you have to do.
Hello, Andrej-Barmalej... So you conquered Spain, eh? in my language it means you bought a souvenir magnet there and sticked it to your refrigerator... Spain... Goya... Well, did you see him a lot there? Ohhh, it's too much...
Pretty soon it will be again people in warm coats in your drawings and I'm here sitting in Dallas will feel cold weather in Hamburg...
thank you so much for awesome post in my book, it was very interesting read and it made me think, particularly about purple being much better color than black for nightly room.I need to become more sensitive about things like this, I'm too rude with colors.
You drew a lot of figure drawing but frankly speaking not many of them I liked, too many disproportions, very careless attitude... Too very often I saw very short torsos comparing to the rest of the body, too prominent hips, head are bigger than they should be... And all that with jumping fast lines created the impression of rushed drawings, careless attitude... Not much of the personalities in the depicted too, everything was with pretty much the same mood, in a hurry, on a run... I just didn't feel your interest to people standing or sitting in front of you, and it is not like you actually. You showed so much personality in sleeping in the subway heavy set guy, or model with cane and bower hat in those little sketches, and here you have a model in fron of you, and you are sure he/she will be patient and will give you a decent time to sketch, and you don't pay a lot attention to who they are... Maybe I'm wrong. But I don't feel an nterest to these people in most of the cases, nothing grabs my attention, it is just a lot of curvy lines, a bit monotone...
But not all, some were wonderful, it is just ratio was not flattering, in my opinion...
this one, I love it, it has a great proportions, volume, charm, personality (melancholic), charm, sensuality.. I have some association too seeing those bracelets on her feminine, full hand, her short dark curvy hair, black mascara on her eyelashes... with models in the beginning of the 20th century when photography was just invented and it took a 20/30 minutes of standing in one pose to make a decent photo... Well, I thought about that looking at this picture. The other thing those kind of woman were fashionable... so a lot of associations because of a lot of little details.
http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1162483252 I like this one, mostly because of her face, it lookd done with more care than the others...
I like paintings of the bald guy, although they look distorted, but texture of the man's skin, rough, dark, is very truthful...
My favorite images:
http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1160844524 This picture hypnotises me, I think I just imagine this repetitive monotone action... Don't know why, but it calms my nerves.
His head is a little too big, but still the pose is easy to recognize and I can relate and it is nice to recognise the scene (although I'm not sure what is he cooking).
http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1160844497 I like the net of lines.
http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1160844505 I like this one. although it is not so innocently looking. I read that you need to remove newborn piglets from the pig, or it can eat them, Sorry for the graphic description... I like the interaction in your drawings, objects and people are communicating, you read body language and choose the most precise one to send the message... that's why your image have a charm even when eyes see obvious distortion in figures.
http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1160844386 Again, good interaction between characters.
http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1160844518 I like the motion of water in this one.
http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1160844230 This one is actually the best together with nude I loved so much... this one has such a great dynamic and energy... I value this one very highly.
I saw sketches of Goya (on Internet, not in a real life), well, get this, yours is on the same level, just it needs some thick lines to defines direction of main movement to help viewer to read the picture a little better. But to create this kind energy in painting, in such a simple and effective manner, it is huge,, I love this one..
Think it needs a little more work though, a bit too hard to read... But how the line of the bull's back going far away from me and bends, and those watercolors leaks, they laid perfectly, and the bull's head bent backward,and the figure of the fighter flying furiously above the bull, awesome, really wonderful. Bravo, bis, cool.
http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1160844342 I like this piggy, you wanted to draw it sort of dissolved in environment. I think, it works, it is a part of nature with its shadows on grass and earth and grasses shadows on the pig, united... Maybe a bit brighter colors fro pig would be better though, to catch the eye longer... to make it more excited, or maybe not... I value this calmness and harmony in the image.
I like the motion, the pencils strokes create in this drawing... You saw the van Gogh drawing of the treated field? he had this rhythm created by lines as well in the image. here if you are willing to look:
http://www.abcgallery.com/V/vangogh/vangogh91.html the most famous one, my favorite,
and another one
And on more, those line create swirls and inner motion in the picture, don't you think? so beautiful
Huge explosion of thin art work in my city now, I'm coming...
OK, be well, buddy.

i know that statue! http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1163854545
sweet updates man!
your meticulously rendered tightness rocks as hard as your watercolor frivolities.. a pleasure to look at
bhanu- thanks man, its true I barely had any time for anything recently already, tacke care
bruce- hey, man. Thanks for the c&c. I actually tore the paper apart while drawing. Felt like it would make the piece more dynamic and I didn't really need the rest of the page. The medical stuff I have to do sucks timewise so far, but at least I got to scetch during surgeries as they wouldn't allow me to spend my time elsewise during those 3-8h opperations.
Duddeta-Konfetta - hey. I've been to spain, yes. But only to an island belonging to it. Saw a picasso and a Dali amongst some other pictures but no Goya, whom I value a lot too. Specially Saturn eating his children. It's winter in germany but not actually cold.(Globe's heating up n all). Hope I'll get a wacom for chrismas or else I'd have to buy one on my self. Thanks a ton for your support and especially for your crits. ALthough the comparisson with Goya might have been too great a compliment. I was to a really awesome artist couple of days ago, he's got pictures in the Tretjakow gallery and all. Showed him his stuff. He liked like only 2-3 picures off the bunch, specially pianno player from January. Gave me quite some feedback and actually sat down with me to do some paintovers and explain what I did wrong. Allowed me to come again once I have new stuff, since I have serious problems with my paints so far (as he said). I totally agreed with anything he said and I agree with al that you said, it's really good to have somebody to tell you that you're not as good as you'd like to be and that you need to be more serious about your work. A really good tip of this guy was to be more selfconfident. As I look back, most of my stuff is plain boring for sure and it's good to know that to push oneself some more. Alright, I won't go into detail on your comment's, just know it's really warm and cozy embedding oneself in them. So long....
Listing- thanks man, appreciate it.
Hyver- wow, i seriously needed to look up in the dictionarry to get what you where saying, but it sure was worth it, thx. I actually go to the archeology department of the university here to study those statue-copies from time to time. But it gets boring to simply copy em, so I try to alter stuff (mostly colourwise) Great to have you stop by.
I was fortunate enough to spend a week at a cordial-surgery-staion. After a while I started scetching during operations. Great experience.
Last one's a portrait I need to finish.
(Oh, and one of the abstrakts is merely an old colour-palette I took a picture of)
Hello, buddy... Lovely update...
So you didn't meet Goya in Spain. Silly me I thought he is on every step there, how disappointing... Goya in art for me like rockers Queens in music... not idols, but something that create sweet pain in my heart, very deep...Strange people. I think they went farther in understanding how our universe works, farther than others who tried to understand... I feel this understanding and harmony in the fullest in art or music they created... But of course everything for its own... for someone it will be Picasso and Dali, Kings of Vanity in my eyes.
I'm glad you found someone who gives your valuable information... Hope he is honest and generous...Be careful though and always analyze any critiques you get... Don't overestimate it, it is hard to enter other person soul and get it close to your heart and try to love it, not to reject it because it is other person life and experience... I always try to forget myself when I look at other people art, because my own taste it so judgmental... Not always successfully... I love more of yours than 2-3 drawings. that's why I'm suspicious about your awesome artist whose work in Tretjakov gallery.
Buddy, show me photos of Spain if you have any, you know I want to see world, always... did the spirit of old times present in the Spanish cities? Did you feel something from Great Inquisition? some hints it was there in full force?
About wacom.... . my husband doesn't like presents, especially in electronics and devices... he takes pleasure choosing for himself, he is so careful in this... almost always he ends up buying the last model, it is expensive, but puts him sort of in future, it doesn't get obsolete for few more years... in the end he always right with it... Cheapskate pays twice, you know.. Feel free to ignore, of course .
First two images are my favs.
I the first one I like her thin figure, a bit exaggerated, but graceful and light and stylized. especially her weightless arm. Good placement on the paper too in my opinion... her foot is huge and the fabric hiding part of the upper leg is not very believable. i need to force myself to see it like this.. . But is it very stylish and elegant drawings. And I like those pillows and lines and soft brown shadows...
I like econd one, which I like very much, his arm has a wonderful heaviness, good gravity in this one, in my opinion, but the proportions is not right, I think, the art from elbow up is a bit short, from elbow down is too long the hand it too big... still like it very much...
http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1166292485 I like this one. Mostly for light silhouette.
And I like all pictures from surgery room. Word to come to my mind is meticulous. Interesting way to entertaining your viewer with look from above and expressive hands gestures and lines sort of dancing on paper... Cuprous too see at this surgeon cap with pattern on it and on some strange device on the forehead of the leading doctor... is it a flash light? strange...
I'm impressed with your nerves too... Sketching in surgery room, eh? Wow.
Last portrait it too festive for me... Left cheek ( my left) might need darker value, I think...
OK. see you, be well.
Sketching actual surgeries? That is very...bizarre. Cool, but almost something surreal. Not something someone does everyday, but I would do it in a heartbeat. About twenty years ago I almost took a medical course where one would dissect cadavers. I figured that it would help my anatomy studies. I was actually cleared to do so by that department, but I never went through with it. It would have been interesting, though. Your sketches are interesting in that they are dealing with a technical situation, but they are very fluid, your figures I mean. It brings a more human element to such a sometimes mechanical situation.
I also like the last portrait that you posted. It's the little things like the color choices that you made in the details, such as the green between the eye and the eyebrow.
See ya and have a great New Year's.
sve- I agree, there have been extremely talented people out there in the pop-culture. They deserve deep respet although they deprived us off their most mature and productive potential-outputt by making an excessive way of life shorten their lifespan.
and I agree that listening good music/ watching the works of great artists, can open your eyes on aspects of life samewell as good literature.
It is for the reason that he tells me, that I still have serius flaws that I value that one artist so much.
I did,t see much of inquisition and only few historical sites of evidence, since it's merely been an island of spain in the mediterranian see. But I saw lots of beatyfil places I did not tacke many pictures of, but whenever I'll have some more time on my hands I'l try to post those few I have.
Thanks for the advise on wacom, I think you're husband's right, my dad is like that samewell. I guess I'll get myself an WACOM Intuos 3 A4 oversize (12"x12") for about 600$.
funny thing is, that first two pics from last post where of same person. He was doing some great shielelesque poses but, way too feminime, so I altered his sex to avid confusion. you're right with your crits, but I deliberately exegerated proportions on second one. Oughta do some studies on proportions nevertheless some time.
Drawing in surgery room was way fun, and I even sold one of those scetches to the surgeon, but the reason I was able to do so, was that they would alow me to do little else on my own. On other stations I'm allowed to tacke blood of or help out with stuff, so I don't have time to draw. Concerning nerves, my whole ancestors-tree is full with medics (not a single artrelated person), perhaps that's why I don't mind watching blood and tornopen-toraxe's. Only nasty part was when they had to rewire the sternum, the flesh around old wound was greenish and had to be scratched out along with parts of bone as if it where icecream. Oh,..and yea that headthingy is a flashlight, a real strong one (fiberoptics). Finished portrait, some things got worse but I most stuff improved I'd say (haven't posted full view of step in between, so unfortunately you can't really compare).
Hope you have a wonderfull new years eve. Give a shoutout to Ded marosz from me.
madplanet-dissecting cadavers? ......that sounds awesome. Would be a dream come true for me, actually. Surgery was interesting indeed. Had to pay attention to operation itself too, though. Since I was there to get insight into medicine and study things I might need later on in my parttime job as emergency medical technician. Coolest surgery was of an 8year old from Afghanistan who had a body of an 5 year old, lots of people trying to tacke a glimpse too, tough, even a TV-team. It's true the environment there was quite icey and mechaniqual (atmospherewise not people wise). The portrait was giving me some headaches as it was too spotty and with bad values and details that wouldn't add all that much (I'm referring to a full view pic I didn't post) am not happy with the mud and other flaws on final version but I thing it's an o.k.aish pic nevertheless. Thanks for dropping by, have a freanblastique New Year.
Oh..............I forgot to mention a litlle "detail".............
I GOT ACCEPTED AT COLLEGE (ILLUSTRATION) !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The people I've met so far that are going to be there too are way awesome
(nacho being amongst them) sooo looking forward for march, as that's when the scool's about to start
Here some scattered thingies

BEAEUGAGFIEAFGUHKAH!!!!! Blacky, I have to tell you, this sketchbook is extremely inspiring. Every bit makes me want to run outside and draw everything, and I thank you for that very much!
also what medium did you use to color this picture: http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g2...isch/akt18.jpg ?
blacky, your work is so inspiring.. it's like seeing someone with another view to the world.. so hectic yet rhythmic... love them.. keep going, I know there's not much I can say except to cheer you from the side. Look forward to what you become in near future. YEAH!
Your works are looking awesome! I think that as the posts went by i was able to feel a more personal approach to your work / your style became more fluid and recognizable! I especially like your watercolor studies, those animals were looking awesome, and that narwhale made me grin Love that loose and confident style you have
Keep it up!
I am really sorry I haven't been able to neither update nor comment on any of your replies or personnal scetchbooks.
I really vastly appreciate your support
I still browse the forums occasionally when at work, but during last 2 Month I've done close to nothing artwise (which sucks).
Give me another month or so, so I could devote myself fully to these forums and my art again.
(No post without pictures:
Those two scetches are about all I've done this year)

After 3 month, studying Emergency Medical Technician, I've been to Egypt for 2 weeks. I also have been to a mini-convention from a German artforum over one weekend.
This week I'll finally start studying Illustration. yay
Divorce- thanks for the enthusiastic words, out and about is always good. I used coloured inks on the picture you pointed out.
mentler- lol, thx
Farvus- thanks, I simply get bored drawing out any tiny detail at times and go loose, sometimes too loose perhaps I wish I was bolder instead.
Marioucci- hey, the surgery scetches wheren't much of an Idea, you simply have little else to do when standing in surgery room all day. I was barelly allowed to touch stuff, was merely supposed to stand by and learn, but they where very happy about being drawn. I like those scetches too, wish I could go scetch there sometime again. THx for stopping by.
bumskee- your cheer up is very much appreciated. It's funny you say I'd have a different view on the world. My boss told me sth. similar today except the bad way round. He was like: get your life together, boy. Wake up and come up with some discipline and sense for responsibility. lol
Cirsk-thanks man, that's been for my motivationbooster
did those at zoological institute (they where stuffed)
girl portraits where done as present for 8th of march
Hey! yeah I suppose there's that too like what your boss said, but I think it's more positive thing as it makes you quite unique.. I felt it again seeing your stuff, kinda feel so free.. like you are not afraid of anything. Of course there's lots of room for improvement and all but isn't it always about attitude? we know if we put the time into it you get there eventually.. I hope.. ahha.. anyways..
love your work, and hope you had fun at egypt!
bumskee- yea work, is what I need to do a ton of. Need to get my art modus on as soon as possible, al rusted. Oh, and yes my bos was right (partially) especially when it would come down to be finding a job sometime in the future, need to work on selfdiscipline and organization some more. Egypt was hell fun, I'll try posting photos in photosection as soon as I'll get pics from other group members. Now I'll need to save up money so I could afford going to India for 3 weeks in 6 month
On last day in Egypt, we had to come up with something in the evening, like a song a comedyscetch or sth.
I grouped up with some smart kid to make a little theatre, illustrating our trip. Unfortunatelly he threw the prosa he wrote away so but it ran sth. like:
We left Hurghada, for the desert and eskaped the tourists, we'd be led by W. Snatinkov (our tour leader) through the desert, up and down the mountains and so on, until we'd see a Beduine on his Kamel, he'd serve us tea and invite us to his tent. Next' we'd go to the sea, to snorkle under corals by the sharks and relax from our journey under the sun, but then a shadow would fall uppon us, a of a touristical moster, coming from out of the sea like a fish, too much for W. Snatinkov, he'd grab us and carry us back to Hurhgada, where we'd becom tourists ourselves as everybody else.

huge and beautiful update man.
strange thing is, lines are wonky.Colors ofen mic up, and other flaws...but whatever you do, they look so damn right.
Illustrations work, and thats the important thing...lovely to see you go wild with lines and colors...i'll be waiting for the next update...and thanks again for beign the first one to actually visit my sb regularly...you can't imagine how much it helped me
The Gnoll- thanks man. I felt like I was free to loosen up un stuff lately before starting to attain art classes at scool where the'd teach me accademic stuff, but strange enough the teachers there are awesome but not as much into an accademic aproach so far. We'll see if it's for the good or the bad. But I'm really exited about the classes already.
here a little update of this week:
2 forgotten scetches from Egypt to start with
more important monkey than me
lifedrawings 15min each
Hello, Ahdrej... it's nice to talk to you again... I'm really happy that you are not postponing the good things in your life and you travel, see the world... I really support you in this... Hope you see as much as possible...I remember when I first came to America, personal computers just started to become a norm for everyone and Internet was growing... pretty fast and in many directions at once.
It was 1994-1995. People started to post their stories about traveling and their impressions about other countries... I was always amazed that the most interesting stories were not about Europe, but about Asia: China, Taiwan, Japan. Apparently those countries still hold their national individuality, when Europe is getting one standard of living so to speak.
I hope you will post those photo of Egypt. I'm looking forward to see them.
I didn't know that your art school already started, I thought it will start this fall.
Hope you are happy with your teachers and classes and program. I'm looking forward to see what new knowledge and skills I will be observing soon in your art...
Updates are great, you are still you, catching the moment in which you happened to be, very vividly and so truthfully that I have the sensation of seeing the same and feeling the same together with you...
I even believe you showed me everything at it was, truthfully : colors, how fast it happened, and in what time of the day... All your people, even stocky and heavy set people have a light gait, they are weightless, like air balloons.
I imagine that even some gentleman with a respectful posture and round belly will be jumping like a children ball, with no gravitation if your characters would suddenly come to life... there is somehting humorous and lighthearted and carefree in your drawings and paintings... A bit of grotesque, eheh I think your professor's words about Repin and his fatal influence on Russian realism in art are still in your memory... and you keeps distance between yourself and realistic school..
But anyway, your art has a taste of happy life... Maybe because of that I feel nostalgia to my own childhood when I see your colors, themes and your people. As I wrote already to you, I suspect we saw the same illustration in our childhood, but I 20 year earlier.
OK.. A lot of wonderful images actually, I love many of them, I missed them, I missed how attentive and friendly your eyes are when you look at your subjects... everything has taste of friendly curiosity.
All camels . they all look so enriched with personality, I would even say human personality, that I have uncontrollable smile every time I looked at them... More of it, I need to giggle to keep my reaction balanced, smile is not enough .
http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...7&d=1174225437 hehe this one. I would pressed my hand to his mouth to escape spitting and certainly would kiss it in its huge nose, it has a lovely expression. Life is good in Egypt for this camel... .
http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...3&d=1174766355 I like this one as well, for letting me know how it is in Egypt: everything is of color of sand, people, desert and camels... Was it beautiful, the desert?
http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...5&d=1174225383 I looked with such an enjoyment on the illusion of swimming people, the motions and their rolling, returning movements of arms... I like swimming and it's nice to see and recognize those beautiful movements. Looks very truthful and dynamic. Very enjoyable and makes my smile again. The closest to us swims in Butterfly style, hmm, I'm impressed, that's the most energy consuming style. Damn, I still can't do it. I'm deeply hurt in my heart... tell please this person he is a major show off.
What is it around them? jellyfish? Wow... good sportsmanship, ahahha.
http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...2&d=1174225546 Ohhh, this one tears me apart, it looks so exotic... what's going on? Is it a well? di they sit on the hot sun lit spot all day long? What kind of people they are, what a country!
http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...4&d=1174225589 And this one too... looks scary, hope he is alive after this drilling in his chest... Yeah, Egypt looks like very exotic place to be..
http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1170513315 This one is very beautiful and playful and your enjoyment of drawing it is so contagious, I really need to hang out more in your book, Andrej. You are what doctor prescribed me: draw or most importantly paint subconsciously...free from heavy stuff, enjoyably.
I wish you added some hoofs to this satire, I could see him tapping with his foot and dancing little funny dance on his hoofs between playing and singing on the mandolin.
A vivid bright character: sly, manipulative, but such a great entertainer, soul and favorite of any company... I wonder how he came to your mind.
http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...6&d=1174224827 This portrait and next to it are very funny and striking with emotion in the eyes and with the little means you used to show it... As I said many times, you have such attentive eyes, you will be very shrewd artist with time, seeing the face in first time and guessing the story of life for the person and guessing it right.
http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1167485561 Lovely lines, proportions, sense of balance between looseness and weight... beautiful positive and negative space shapes... and because of all that it is a beautiful design on its own, IMO... not all your nudes have this quality, this one looks nice. Little indication of colors, although they are pretty wild, looks nice too in this one.
http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...8&d=1174224395 hehehe, I love this one.. it reminds me how students in my class wrote about behavior of animals in the observation journal... they describe their behavior human-like... yours goat has a very satisfied look, like a child who dragged his mother to buy him ice cream and air balloon... yeah, both of them in one day... what a great day, what a mom of this child ... but it is sweet...
Well I know you expect at least some crits... proportions, my dear, they are pretty wild sometimes in your drawing..
http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1167485568 here from example, feet are huge and torso is so short... he has some real person presence though with his thin figure...
OK. bye, buddy, hope you are doing great.
