lung is back =)
for some reason, when you stopped uploading, I stopped drawing =\
jeff gran: thanks, that was my first try at it... kinda happy it turned out ok
golgari: i have a balcony door too so it can be very bright :alien4:
aidan: without measuring. i was sitting in the left chair and rotated a bit when i needed to make sure about details. it's a good exercise. like drawing from an astral body
endregan, sumrow, xia: thanks
amphex: you better be drawing right now
i worked for more than twelve hours today and i feel GREAT. and tired. not much to show (some stuff is secret secret, you'll see in time) but here goes:

wow, great concepts!
amazing work as always =D I love the tarot cards... very creative designs...but the pregnant lady with the big hands scares the crap out of me :eek:
Glad you're back! Now I feel all inspired......
Your passion for drawing scares me a bit...
I mean...12 hours...
My personal record is seven hours with a one hour break.
And after that I was not drawing for one week.
Your gifted. Please keep on sharing your talent.
Can't tell how much I'm lookin forward to seeing your new site.
wow, the concept is great and it was a real treat to see all of the thumbnails. the samurai big band is definately a winner in my mind, and you must finish the KING of SPORKS. are you planning on painting this? i cant wait to see it.

ahrhrhrhr...that samurai big band made my day =)
buffaloe: that was actually a klimt study. he did some scary stuff.
aidan: 12 hours is a good start i think. puddnhead works (or worked dunno atm) approx 15 hours a day. and look where it got him. you can think of it like a gym workout. gotta do it every day. if you work out 10 hours one day and then don't for a few weeks, it's no use. gotta keep pushin it every day. the more you do it, the better you get. sounds easy, eh?
i have a site up at the moment (it's temporary but is something)
metaphysiks: yep that's gonna be a full blown painting when i settle on a definite design and pose. will be noodling on it in the next few days.
i'm glad you guys liked the samurai big band... might turn that into a painting someday heheh
today i woke up at 7:20pm and till now was busy having a really bad headache so did only some hand studies:
and here's few old sketches i didn't post i think
next update: TOMORROW (if i don't go :beer: again)
great stuff (again ), the hands are great, many people just dont want to do studies. i like teh design for the second one i would love to see the painting finished becuase i want to see the arms
dont go drink, i want to see more tomorrow
*agrees with metaphysiks*
we are craving your sketches - don't put us on cold turkey!
those hands are great - i like especially that second one.
by the way, i recently browsed through the beginning pages of this thread again, and noticed the many pages with notes. now... do these help you? i mean, can you remember how to draw things better when writing notes while drawing? or are you just noting them down for others to better understand? (thanks by the way, they're helpful ). just being curious...
hehe i agree with meta dont drink it slows ya down. you draw a lot every day and that sets a good example. if we want to draw for the rest of our lives we should start now...hours a day everyday!
Damn, I want to draw as much as you do but there's so much else to do...
I think you're underrating this.
Not everybody has the passion to draw as much as you do.
The point, when you just can't go on is differently set set from person to person.
And I guess people who just don't has the passion to draw much, shouldn't wonder why they ain't getting better as much as other people are.

metaphysiks: the robot design was a rough sketch for my friend who's into 3d modelling. he just needed the basic idea so i didn't go for details as much as i could. i'll get at it in one of the next updates
golgari: the thing with notes is that i do both, help myself and, hopefully, people who see them (glad you find them helpful). to write them, i am forced to think it all through, comipile and put in short lines. it's not as much about writing them as much as the thought process. a lot of it sticks in the brain. and that's important, right? try it once, you'll see it works
endregan: i'm not really a drinking person, but sometimes gotta get out of the house and spend some time with the lads. and you're right about the last part tho. no time to waste!
aidan: it's always hard forcing oneself to work. the start is rough but it gets easier afterwards. i didn't set myself an aim to draw 10 hours straight from the start. two years ago, when i started doing this more seriously, i said myself "hey, let's see if i can pull off five pages every day". and so i bought a small a5 notepad and started kicking at it. it worked! after a while you want to do more and honestly, i just became addicted. i feel utterly useless when i don't draw. imho everyone should ask themselves WHY are they doing it and HOW hard do they want it.
some more random jibberish from me:
this is a school yearbook cover i did a while ago, never posted it. initially had colors but i managed to push the blue version. took some five hours in photoshop:
the original sketch, a5:
few more samurai roughs
(this isn't very big irl, i scanned it to show how loose i sketch most of the time)
opencanvas session from the other night:
need to get this thing to daily rythm!
next update: NINJAS

Hey Lung_bug, I haven't been here for a long time and obviously missed some great art. You :rock: rock!
As many other people I'm really impressed by your lomg drawing sessions. I wonder who organises your life then? who earns the money, cooks the meals, does the washing and ironing and so on? I mean, I'm a marketing-consulter and work currently 9-10 hours a day. Then, after organising my life, I usually draw for about 1-2 hours per day. I'm also a great fan of literature and film and this has to fit in, too. Plus social life, i.e. family and friends. Plus sleeping (I don't sleep more than 6-7 hours a night, this isn't that much) - SO HOW DO YOU FIND THE TIME TO DRAW THOSE WONDERFUL PICS UP TO 12 HOURS A DAY??? Sorry for shouting ...
Ok, to stop ranting - great stuff!
fuck yeah dude, its about time you update regularly. .. .at least every few days. all the stuff is great as usual, but im really diggin the colored chatdoodle.. . the colors are so simple, yet so fucking awesome. keep em comin
I agree with Lung. He is on his way to be great. I think I understand where he's going with this. It all comes down to you.
YOU have to make a "DECISION". It is as simple as this. What is more important to you? "Do you want to be "GREAT", or you just want to be good." Once you decide, the rest is history. It's your choice, nothing is for free. Sacrefice has to be made for the cost of being "GREATER".
hell yeah, lung rocks!
jester: hey, thanks for stopping by and for the nice words. and about my life... i'm not sure if you know i'm 17, so i still live with my parents. last year of highschool now. that takes care of the formalities like cooking and stuff.also i don't have much of a social life, but it was a sacrifice that had to be made. sleeping too sometimes, especially during school. past semester i slept 3-4 hours max daily for many months, and then just blacked out during weekends. holidays rule for drawing and i'm trying to use them the best i can when school starts the sessions will cut to some 8-9 hours max, tho. drawing 1-2 hours per day is a fair amount of drawing time, but if i were you i'd try to push it a bit further. mullins once said "MAKE TIME". but then again i'm still a kid
metalwinds: yeah when school starts there'll definitelly be more postable materials so i'll aim for a very narrow posting rythm. glad you like the colors, they were an experiment. cheers
xia: yeah, that's pretty much it
sic1: :chug: cheers mate
was working on dead dog gulch most of the day but i don't want to post it unfinished so here's.... SOME MORE RANDOM JUNK! *trumpets and shoes thrown at lung*.
that last one is a pencil/marker sketch... testing how it works (quite fine)
ROFL @ "real ninja's always practice". that ninja stuff is really funny. but that first page is great, too. (heck, all your stuff is great. don't ever call it junk again, makes me want to rip my heart out). normally i don't like smudging very much, but in your pictures it somehow looks very good. i guess it's because your still maintaining enough stroky quality, plus you have pretty clean outlines. nice background composition...
hey Lung, i love your stuff. very inspirational since im 15 and i just started being serious about drawing this summer. the ninja one was hilarious just curious though, do you have doodles you do when your bored? cause the ones you do seem so neat and organized. also just wondering what do you draw during those hours? ive been drawing but i ll stop every 5 seconds or something. ive been studying bones and muscles and im going to move onto portraits in a bit. lastly your the one that inspired and pushed me to work harder. i draw probably 2-3 hours a day but not straight.
OT: anyone got good references for skulls? my anatomy book doesnt have that great of an example. thanks
awesome stuff. that ninja practicing is hilarious. And I wanted to tell you what you said about dedication and how you used to do 5 pages a day really inspired me, that's my new goal, 5 in stead of 1 each day. Keep posting man, love this stuff.

man, doesnt your ass get sore sitting still and drawing for 12 hours a day?
great stuff, inspiring, the little notes on the sketches are great
