this is just so brilliant. I can only watch with envy.
wooooooooooo nıce style
Nice sketches I really enjoy looking at them!
Life is a long lesson in humility.
hey hey great updates!!! sorry i really cant find any thing to crit you on this time, the studies look great! so does the figures! even your handwriting is awesome!
keep up the great stuff!
your anatomy studys are impressive!
I kind of begin to realice what I lack in -.-"
took me long enough cause up to now all my anatomy studys were observed from living (not cut open) persons
what book/sites/etc. do you use as reference?
friends Sketchbooks:Dile_, Stine
my flickr go there if you want to see my photography stuff

Hi again Naomi. Yes, I think it would be a good idea for you to try with oil color, theyīre great when you get used to them and I personally love to paint with that technic. Actually, the use of color is quite simmilar to the PS procedure somehow, if you think about hue, saturation, and brightness.
About anatomy, Iīve seen the studies you have posted here and some of them are good, but theyīre far from being as good as all the other stuff you have, it seems you donīt feel really free drawing them, right? One danger about being too worry about anatomy is that your drawings end up being too "correct" in that sense, many artists fall in that mistake for a while until they realize that thatīs not the point in an image.
Ah, and about using pen/pencil, I donīt think itīs gonna be really different. Pen is more direct and helps you getting deeper blacks, pencil usually only allows you to work with a limited greyscale. If what you want is to go forward into the tonal study, you may use both, pen is perfectly able to create subtile grey changes.
Lately I haven't been able to go to many places and sketch these people out. So here are 2.. class and the library coffee shop, then a doodle in the back of my sb, and then a photoshop sketch of a character.
mull77> Thanks for visiting again~! :]
dakoscwash> Hey thanks.. and yeah I was there! I won't be going to today's meeting 'cause I'm going to vabeach to watch 300 with some friends. ; ; Go see it and I'll see you .. um I guess 2 weeks from now haha
Rossouw> Wow I'm flattered .. but why don't you just airbrush your own images? It'd be more special I'm sure. :p
Tigermilk> Eep, thank you !
stalsby> I'm glad!
paperX> haha my handwriting? Well, thank you !
Infinit> Thanks !
Badaboom> Hey thanks. They are probably not as free because I was copying them from a book - in order to be free and make images that reflect anatomy well from the imagination, you must first understand it at somewhat of an academical fashion.. you know, knowing what IS there! THen afterwards you may not think of those things so much - your pen(cil) will flow along with the knowledge~ as for pen/pencil, I've definitely seen some awesome pen rendered images, but I guess I'm just seeing how the pencil will serve me with my style of sketching random people. ^_^
wow great update!!! it really shows your skill level when u can reach that level of quality sketching random peeps
really liking the digi piece too...cant wait to see how that turns out, keep up the hard work
Let me guess...Is the book the Jeno Barcsay Anatomy for Artists? I bet that´s the one (really cool book, btw). Very good updates, I really like most of your stuff, and yes, keep pushing forward with pencil, there are many different kinds and the results can be really beautyful. Oh, perhaps you may like to try with silver pen (dunno the English translation, Spanish name is "punta de plata"), the tool commonly used by Leonardo, Michaelangelo and many others til the invention of pencil in the XIX century. You know, just to explore new tools...
you r digital art is gettting too good lately. the tones are well picked and the softness of the face is very visible, people hunting is quite fun , thouhg lately I ahvent been doing a lot of iot. Now I thinkn I jsut go on ride and do soem sketches.
I cant get over your line quality and feel of your characters. Very beautiful pieces. The only thing that can see in your pieces is that dont put as much effort into drawing the hair than you do drawing the facial features and human figures.
wow. for me this SB is one of those gems/presents that you suddenly come across. it's not you come across a sketchbook where you like the pencils, inks, paints and digi's. lots of nice lines and brush marks. and i like the colours you're using.
now i'm no fanboy and i'm sure i will find you something of a crit, but not right now...
what school are you going to? same as alan (bojee?)

Look forward to seeing more. =)
lots of beautiful stuff going on here miss! i really do like your pencils and pens but, you should work on your color too. your proportions are awesome too.
I'm looking for work!
those sketchbook pages are solid gold!
paperX> thanks, that means a lot. :]
Call0ps> thanks, I will!
Badaboom> no, not the same book, I used Joseph Sheppard's complete anatomy guide or however it goes. And silver pen? o_o; I'll google it.. but hey! Got some oils for you ~
bhanu> thanks! I wanted her to be not so pretty and kinda' ugly with the shape of her face. The tones are really weird saturated ones just mixed together to get the tone. Like pure cyan red purple golden yellowishy color - haha
Envisor> Yeah I noticed that too.. thanks I'll do a hair piece sometime.
RedGallo> thanks a lot ~
tensai> Thanks! and.. o_o; I dunno, does Bojee go to Virginia Commonwealth University? If so, then yes!
aph> thaaaanks :]
shidoken> thanks very much, yes.. my colors need some hardcore working on - i'll keep working on that!
hito> oooooo gold! ty
Eh .. this update I am hesitant but what oh well -
ps landscape from reference
oil painting on board - study from sargent
a lot is off i'm afraid.. i will do better next time.
yay random girl floating somewhere !
I agree with Tensai.Originally Posted by tensai
This last post didn't seem like your heart was in it as much, but that pencil sketch of the floating girl is smokin! I love your sketches in general, do they really stress cross-hatching at VCU? The digi on the post before this last one is really well rendered, the only thing that kinda bugs me is the ear looks like it's from a profile head, and I think it needs to recede back some.
I go to MICA in Baltimore by the way, Tensai/Lok thinks all us Americans going to school look alike. Have you taken classes with Pratt yet?? I'm jealous.

Bojee> Oh my heart was in the oil painting - at first, lol.. I've never done an oil portrait or anything even remotely refined of any sort. So Sargent held my hand a little and let go when he was bored I think~! No, VCU doesn't push crosshatching, I just messed with it my freshman year in foundations and fell in love ever since. And Pratt? Erm, I was never able to get into his classes, signed up for 2 this year and he moves off to Florida. Just my luck right? He's awesome - hey I think a study of one of his paintings would be neat! hehe
Nice update. The brush strokes on the painting are very nice...the eyes and mouth seem off to me, along with some placements, but it's a good study for the time being...
The girl floating is rendered nicely too. She looks to have about 1487 things hanging on her shoulder, but that's coo...I like it...
greaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaatttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt & nıce job
very very good i love your works.
Keep it up, post more!

Your artwork looks exactly like the kind of artwork that makes me go warm inside. Keep it up!
