incolorinred- Thanks for stopping in.
Dreamworker- Thank you. In the belt piece I used both a brush and a pen. I also used gray prismacolor markers, I neglected to mention that earlier.
Delmar- Thanks for the crit.
More bridgeman, and a rather quick character.
Hey Ex, very solid anatomy studies and I really dug those black and whites in #7! looking forward to more
my sketchbook http://conceptart.org/forums/showthr...ht=Naetron%27s
Heres a small update.
Peter Paul Rubens study for class.
Just playing with brushes. I kinda like this one.
Crits always welcome.
I did this as a homework assignment and it looks familiar to me. I'm sure something like this has been done before, but I'm not sure when or by whom.
Marko/Wes inspired character.
wow, this is amazing! your pencil technique is superb! i 'm loing your creatures and robots, and it's good to see that youre studying anatomy!

Here's a wip. Just playing with color and texture, really. I kinda feel like this one is taking too long. Crits very welcome.
....I need to make my mechs look more functional and not just like trash-bots....
Here's a small update after much time away. If I were to design a chess set, this would be my pawn.
Its been awhile since I've scanned anything, so yesterday I did just that. Here's group of bridgeman studies and a few robots. More to come.
Study of a William Maughan pastel portrait; I translated it to graphite.
Thanks for swinging by. really digging those brush monsters, i've been doing some brush experiments myself lately, and got myself really confused, i posted a thread in the art dissc section 'the right way and the wrong way'
love to see more man!
Crit for a crit!
yeaaaahhh ! cool stuff!!!
my only advice is using more accurate strokes when you draw a portrait....
yes it is cool scetch.. but when you draw face.. or any part of human body try to shade it very softly (but not too smoothly!!!) and use for base tones very hard pencil...
couze your drawing and anatomy skills are good, your portraits would become more interesting with soft shading...
but yeah- as for scetch - it is very good
Love the line work, the critters are cool as well as the Peter Paul Rubens study among others. Keep it up dude, later.
Thanks for the replies, people.
These photos were taken by my sculpting instructor and sent to me via e-mail. I completed these about a month ago for a class assignment that involved designing chess pieces. My theme was Cthulu because "anything with Cthulu in it is fine by me"- or however that saying goes... I actually decided on that theme after completion of the king, or I may have done something different with him.
the queen... now that I think about it, maybe her torso turned out a little manly....
and an example of a glazed work(bishop).
I began sculpting last fall, and I find it to be very enjoyable. Hopefully, I will progress....
Drawing for an assignment titled "He/She." Original is 12X18 inches.
Really nice stuff, your studys are great, and so are your creatures and robots.
That last portrait looks really good, nice job.
Keep up the good work.
MSilva- Thank you.
Saturns Gate- Thanks. Yeah, Bridgeman is great, and I still have much to learn from him.
Here's a figure from a photo in a book; the title escapes me atm.
Really great, you have a great shading technique.
I posted an earlier version of this in the wips section. I've worked on it a bit since then, but I'm sure it still has issues in the way it's constructed and in the way it interacts with its environment (mainly the ground). Feel free to point out my flaws.
It may be some time before I return to this piece- It seems I'm going to be busy with other things for awhile.
Drawing fish is relaxing.
Some really strong rendering and detailed characters here. Have you seen Shirow's stuff? It looks like it may be a strong influence for you.
Hey man, some really good studies, the William Maughan study looks great. Your line is looking really nice but some of the line sketches look a little flat (the He/She image). Maybe try and use your lines to describe form a little more, even using a faint line or leaving the line out completely where the light is directly hitting the subject.
Thanks for dropping by my sb, Cheers man
softocean- I assume you're speaking of Masamune Shirow. Although I've seen some of the art from Ghost in the Shell, I'm not completely familiar with the artist; however, I am now curious enough to research him a bit. Thanks for coming by.
krossj- Thank you. Now that you mention it, the character in this post probably has the same issue. I'll keep your crit in mind- playing with lines has been fun for me lately.
I really love your characters! Great style.
Thanks, Lair Radical.
Can't have a page 4 without artwork:
Fantastic SB! Your work has a greaty energy and life to it. Also, I wanted to say cheers for having a look at my SB, I appreciate it.
Will be back for more as you post it
