Rhineville -- aw, The Black Stallion, man ... and yes, my non-reffed femmes start to look alike; i try to throw in some variety, but that's only when i remember to do so I'll see if I can't spice it up for ya from now on (And yes, those of us who inherited our father's noses and are proud of it salute you, sir! )
jdeegz -- yay glad i can "brighten the corner where i am", as it were Thx fer stoppin' by!
Pics, as promised:
1) "Time enough, I think, for a piece of wood" -- Viking Raider's larch
2-3) Posemania, 30s and non-timed
4) "Lily", inspired by Mucha's decorative piece "Le Lys"
5) "Dragonsender", a WIP
6) a WIP in honor of Sept. 19 ('twas "Talk Like a Pirate Day", ye swabs! )
7) a chili.
8] skull progress!
9) tribute to Edward Gorey's Gashlycrumb Tinies (google it! morbid, but cool)
10) werk sketchies
11) scribblies -- i do these simply for the fun of it
12) animalz (see? told ya )
13) I colored some ballpoint sketches...
Nice update man , alot of stuff man, alot of stuff.
Okay I really need to make an effort to critique man, but there eally isn't much that I can spot out.
Well the leprachaun , his eyes are a little weird looking, they should be on a more level plane.
The skull, maybe its just me but the bull seems to small with the rest of the picture, unless its a little one , but I don't think his horns would be so developed at such a young age.
But damn I had to look for those.
Ev'sSketchbook for the lazy minded but willing!
Help an artist, leave a critique.
Evxyza92 -- thx for the crits you're quite right... my ref pic for the skull doesn't have a longhorn calf, and the horns should probably be smaller... at this point, i think i'm gonna leave it like it is
So I forgot to post the little sketch i did of Poe
wow! been practice a lot, keep up the good work!!
Coming along quite well, I see. You're experimenting with an impressive array of styles and techniques -- that's awesome. I have no specific crits -- just keep working on the basics, and draw from life as much as you can. Carry on.
Ha ha! The Larch---I love it! You know, I always thought they were making that up but there really is a larch...
Anyway, not much in the crits dept., I really like the Mucha inspired one, and especially the faces/poses. Such clean linework! I'm jealous! I like Poe too. There's a tavern at my old alma mater that he supposedly frequented. Painting just like that in there. Takes me back
LIVE FREE. DRAW HARD.
tilen -- thx how much time do I spend sketching? Lots. how much time on that Poe pic? hmm... maybe 15-20 min...
funfetus -- wow, thanks man Yes, need to do more life drawz...
vervex -- hey, thx! Glad ol' Poe is recognizable
Viking Raider -- ooh, a Poe hangout, you say? 8) sweeeet.
Tonight's presentation: guess who.

Artz galore, you crazy kids!
1) pencil, paper, stables --> sketch time 8)
2) and some non-ref equine sketchez
3) werk sketchies
4) miscellaneous creatures...
6) gettin' close to being done with Herr Skullmeister
7) got the trial version of Painter X... fairly snazzy (and snowy)
8] For some reason, I call her Felicia.
10) playing with Painter's calligraphy brushes
Again, I really dig the female portraits. Your really getting the horse sketches down, very very nice line work on all of this new stuff. The skull is still comeing along very nice. I'm kind of surprised at how much detail is stuffed in there...
Wow, love the female faces, really well done! The work in Painter is great! I love the snow! And Felicia has a very natural feel to it. Was that in chalk or is that just how awesome the brushes in painter are? Either way, great update. I wish I was able to make updates, but with all this design work I have going in school its been busy 24/7! If its any consolation, do know I am working with a laser cutter for one project and have a teacher who is teaching us perspective by making us draw city scapes. I am psyched, but I wish I could draw freely again! Your sketchbook is one of the last bastions of creative inspiration I have, haha!
Very nice stuff as always.
One thing I'm noticing is painting on a blank white canvas. Try to add even a little bit of a colour background first, as white tends to activate all our colour receptors and kind of 'blanks' them out. Our sense of colour suffers because of it. Aside from that, watch out for greyish skintones
MaxoftheSouth -- thanks, man yep, and still more detailing to do..
Leadster618 -- thx Felicia was done in ArtRage, actually - cheep little program that i've taken a shine to Sounds like your SB's gonna take off, what with perspective and a laser cutter Can't wait!
Rhineville -- merci The thing about me 'n' white canvas? I just start whippin' stuff out and slapping it on the canvas; so, since I seldom know where something's going, I never know what color to put down first And yes, skin tonez and I have been goin' round and round. I shall triumph... eventually.
Grandmassa Mr. Spect -- thank you very much always more where these came from...
Und, ze art.
1-3) There's light at the end of the skull-painting tunnel Plus, if anyone out there's considering doing a similar project, pics 2 & 3 show what you can expect -- skulls got ridges 'n' holes
4) More playin' around with Painter X...
Yay-hay a Wacom! Always a pleasure browsing through your SB, love the variety! The wacom drawings are so good! Also, neat work on that skull. Must be hard painting on that kind of surface?
Keep going, keep going!
Insanity is the key!
Also, studies are a key. And passion is a key. Also, so are inspiration, motivation and dedication. Talent can be a key. Insomnia can also be a key, depression is a sad rusty little key. Damn, artists need one hell of a keyring.

My Old CA Sketchbook
Hey its been a long since last time I was here!
...and first thing I noticed: Yay more horsies!
Awsome stuff man, getting better and better (at least someone is *wink wink* )
Really loving the portrait studies and Edgar A. Poe portrait!
You definitely deserved those 4 stars...and I hope you`ll get one more soon
i love the french jellybean, and a variety of your portraits and the animals!
the skull isn`t really my thing-too opaque..what kind of colours did you used?
Those horses are excellent, really good studies same goes for the faces.
lens flare renaissance
Aila -- thanks the skull surface itself wasn't difficult to paint on at all, actually; it would've been easier if it'd been flat, though
Blaz -- thx glad you stopped by!
Warhole -- Yay for the French Jellybean (aka Jean-Pierre) On the skull, I used ordinary craft-store acrylics...
Krigbrann -- thank you
Koto Stomp -- thx Horses for the win!
Teh Gosu -- thanks very much
Wow, feels like I haven't posted in forever -- quick post this time, too; I'm moving, and things're crazy... more to show ya later
1-4) finished skull painting!!!!! woot!
5) and I gave my new bedroom a tattoo 8) Always fun to free-hand stuff on wallz...
Hey nice job on the skull painting , its really a unique painting great to see
^ I love this piece man I am saving it and ya great job it is really a great piece
nice colors and everything
keep it up and Ill see you around
-jedininja- ohh and try to update more often here on out
Well the skull is well done! Bravo Amontillado. I'm really impressed that it turned out so well. I think you especially did a wonderful job giving the picture so much action and tension, yet make it nostalgic. My hats off.
Wall tatoos!!! OMG! (no on suspects the Spanish inquisition...)
jedininjaman -- hey, thx! i thought the lily girl turned out well, too
Krigbrann -- thanks so much Ya, now my roommate wants a wall tattoo, too
1) sketch called "Waterlily Princess"
you continue to amaze...
hey nice spiffy brush on that last one, and the new water lily princess looks great, but ya cool sketchbook I just looked through the whole thing, your thumbnail for it , the one with the dragon wrapped around the pillar is pretty nice and also nice line quality on your portrait page and just in general, but you should try do some more pencil pieces and also might want to check up on some anatomy some of your characters seem to be sort of stocky like a dwarve lol but ya keep it up and keep posting
I haven't drawn/posted/visited these forums in too long. Laziness is bad..uumkaaay?
I love visiting your sketchbook. You're progressing so well. Plus, your tat is hot. Woot, woot!!
You stay classy, San Diego.
Watch out for Piranhas
Hi mate! you make very nice stuff from my last visit,in particular I found very interesting the skull painting !
