The livestream was a success! Thanks to all who joined and watched me draw, and listen to Jasper and later John Silva (His SB). Tomorrow JASPER, the man himself, will be drawing and painting, hopefully around 7AM EST again. Here's some drawings from the stream, they're digital, since I can't record myself drawing in pencil on the stream.
Thanks for the tips about the HSB slider--I'll try that out!
Man, I'm going to have to go back and watch some of these streams on archive--these figures look great. I'm loving the lines you used--they have an energetic quality about them, despite being clean and deliberate-looking. Were you drawing from imagination or reference?
Damn Jai your lines are so delicious. They look awesome on the stream already but seeing them posted is even more tasty! :)
those lines are pure sex.
Really enjoying the streams you and Jasper are doing man. Sweet lines on these last pieces!
Really, really been neglecting this thread. After a very unproductive summer, I'm back here. Hopefully posting a bit more, but right now I'm enrolled at SVA in their Illustration program. I'm really struggling with my personal voice as an artist and, even though I do so many drawings and studies, often wonder what they'll lead to. Hopefully I'll find out soon. Right now I'm just focusing on drawing, but I'm also trying to make up for lost time. Here are some very recent drawings, starting to loosen up again an get back to it. Many are from photos, but a fair amount of them are also from life, drawn during class. Hope you all like!
thanks for the update! nice lines! :yum:
I've been waiting for this too. Graceful stuff as always.
beautiful lines! :)
Gorgeous, gorgeous lines. :D
beautifuul line drawings here

Here's another update, mostly just sketches/artist copies. Really trying to focus on memorizing stuff, so I've omitted a lot of pages where I just drew the same thing over and over again. Most of this is random junk, but the cleaner drawings at the end are from a book seminar class here at SVA. Really trying to focus on drawing this first year, and not paint if I don't have to. Problem is, I've been having some sincere trouble actually finalizing my work. Not that I'm lazy, I mean I don't know how to finish a piece without painting it in a representational way, which I don't want to do right now. Anyone have and tips or advice, or maybe know of artists who focus solely on line/graphic elements to make a work look finished? I'd greatly appreciate any input!
Also, sorry for the crappy phone pics. I'm trapped here in Albany while I wait for the power in my Manhattan apartment to come back on...oh Sandy...luckily we weren't flooded!
Best wishes everyone!
damn! dem lines got me shook!!! looking friggin awesome bro!! really love the ease and flow of your lines, they feel so natural, even with the dostortion. so great!!
How do you keep your lines so clean, you must take muscle relaxants to steady your hands or something.
Gorgeous update, I really love the concepts behind the last few :')
thoes lines are insane:wtf:
Man, you are maniac! And I want to draw like you, such splendid works, especially heads, I will use them as sacred references if you don't mind. And I've read that you want your works to look finished without coloring them. Look at Herluf Bidstrup works,he is amazing without color.
Lovely linework and a great sketchbook all around. The color stuff a few pages back is amazing. Greatness!
Great work. I walked through all your posts and it is amazing the way you improved. Keep pushing!
Hey man , awesome works!You are an inspiration :D . The line quality is amazing.
Since you are looking for some inspiration, I thought I'll point out works of Kim jung gi. You might have heard about him. He does this amazingly detailed freehand illustrations on his drawing book out of memory. He does not even use pencils and just draws directly with ink pen. And the best part is he only uses the graphic lines for details.Do check out his works here on his fb page if you dont mind- https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...9911336&type=3 . It might be something you are looking for.Hope you find it somewhat useful. Keep drawing. :D
