Apologies RainWalker, reading that after seeing you post in my SB, it felt like a bit of a dig.. I post a lot.. but it's for my benefit. If I threw out the bad drawings I'd not have much left at the moment.. though granted, in the grand scheme of things the early sketches only really matter if you're famous, retired, and in need of cash. :/
I understand the mentality you're talking about.. when I was in modeling and simulation I was the same way.. 2 hours for a render .. one spot's off do it again..
actaully thank u :)... i reposted my first sketch ever in the first page.. and updated my story... maybe it will motivate anyone who just started.. :)
excellent 3d designs and the rendering of the horses are awesome
nice stuffs!! keep it up!! love the way you start with the pencils.. ^^
Excellent stuff and I see where you're coming from on the whole depression deal.

@ shadow1687 : thank u my friend... cheers!
@ migs3331 : ohhh the pencils... i didnt touch a color till one and half year of pincil ... all black and white .... till i was sick of it... but i do love it.. and i will be posting some anatomy work in colored pencil... i think everyone should start from the easiest cheapest medium toward the hardist,....
@ FightingSeraph : thank u friend... :) glad u liked it
im working on some anatomy.. going back to basics again.. taking a break from oil for a while.. posting in few hours...
Good work with that oriental painting, as always! :)
Thanks for the feedback on my sketchbook!
great sketchbook, Loving the oriental painting! and the anime! and all the studies are great aswell.
I see you allso have the crappy genius pen i use :P...i will post some digital stuff soon.
From reading what you wrote about sketches and perfectionism i thoaght i'll give you a really great advice i once reseavd that realy helped me and i hope might help you..
I got it in a gnomon masterclass from the great "iain mccaig" and i quote it directly here: "It takes time to learn anything, and there is a strange phenomenon that happens in the learning process: for a while you actually get worse! The reason is that you havenít learned the new lessons yet, so those arenít working for you, but you canít use your old tricks either, so for a time you just resign yourself to looking really bad. The good news is that once youíve have grokked the new stuff, you can bring the old stuff back in, and your talent and skill takes a giant LEAP!"
And another advice is to separate your drawing in two separate states, the one is when you are learning something new and you are concentrating on practicing like anatomy or whatever and the second state is drawing from imagination and then you just delve into the story or fantasy you have in your head.
i hope this helps! because it sure helped me...looking forward to seeing more stuff in your sketchbook!
@ Satupeikko : always happy to see ur comments mate :)
thank u mate for your advice.. i have to say its a new perspective to look at things.. i spent like an hour re reading it ... it is true.. one u reach a high level of art u suddenly seem ur falling down and ur art turning into crap.. and u can see it all over the sketchbook section .. great work then not so good.. and i think this is where most artists fall apart and quit their art journey.. sometimes i feel art is just a mind game.. a fight with ur own mind ..
but i will try to do some imagination art when i FINALLY get my wacom tablet.. im still waiting and there is no respond from the wacom factory in Europe.. first they said mid FEB then mid March.. now they said mid April! i dnt know whatís going on!
thanks for ur advice mate.. i hope u keep sparkling ur wisdom beads on my SB from time to time :D
as for now...
im back to basics..... Anatomy.. Gesture drawing.... more to come ... :)
wow, you have much different skills. Drawing, painting, 3D and more. You are so good in all of those. I appreciate you post the making of from you paintings because I learn from it and will remember your technique if I will start to paint myself.
@ deadlyhamster .. thank u :D i dnt think im that good yet .. but i know how to take a complement :D... i cant wait to see ur paintings...!
for now.. more anatomy...
Wow! You really go all out with your anatomy studies! I'd love to start doing some of those myself. Do you have any idea where I can find some online resources for that?
You've improved incredibly over such a short period of time. Astounding progress. It gives me hope that I'll be able to make the same leaps if I keep trying. I'll keep an eye on this one for sure! I really appreciate the encouragement you gave on my sketchbook, as I'm sure all artists do. XD
@ Demo_Thesis : thanks mate :) for your encourgment also ^_^ .. i will give 2 websites it can help u with figure drawing.. one is very popular over here.. its posemeniac http://www.posemaniacs.com/ u can do a 30 sec or 60 sec or 5 min figure drawing session with a model (male or female) u can rotete the model as u want.. its 3D
the other website i came to find lately its with photos of models.. which is nice.. http://www.pixelovely.com/tools/gesture.html
as for anatomy .. andrew loomies books ofcourse http://www.fineart.sk/?cat=1
http://www.fineart.sk/ (the main website with good resources)
other books for Burne Hogarth and jack hamm are also important.. but my favorite so far and the one i did the last anatomy practice from is a book called the figure in action .. anatomy for artists by Louise Gordon .. lovely book
hope that helped :)
for now.. 2 more anatomy sketchs.. im loving the colored pencils ^_^
first i have to say thanks for stoping by my sketchbook, i appreciate it. And second you have a great sketchbook i love the first site with the anime stuff, i myself was obsessed with dragonball and still am :) i remeber when i was drawing son goku and the other characters. And the progress u made is admirable, keep up the good work!
Holy smokes! i love your sketchbook. Its inspiring to see you can bounce back from the things went through and produce this kind of work. Very inspiring. I'm adding you to my follow.
foot drawings, loove them! They look so, well, oposite of mine I guess would be right, so good job :D To be honest the eyes creep me out, but I think their suppose to when they look real, I love your new studies!
Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook, I really appreciate it :')
Those anatomy studies are looking really good - especially the one at the bottom of 161. Also judging by your latest oil, your control of them is getting better - would love to see some more oils :')
great stuff! and it seems we have alot of inspiration in common ha, giovanni civardi, wes burt, dragonball z, neon genesis! great stuff! and i love the studies too! keep it up!
@ NickyBeats lol.. it is weird that we almost draw the same stuff but it the most common thing that we are anime fans :D.. ANIME ROCKS!! :D
@ mudd i have 3 more paintings coming on the way.. but since i do classic style they take forever!!!!!!!!!!
@ spiralpen thank u mate.. foot and hands are the hardest!!.. i will keep posting anatomy work hopefully from time to time
@ mpaquin thank u for adding me :) i will keep my eye on ur SB as well .. it is very interesting
@ mass87 thank u mass87 :) .. anime was the first things first i ever draw.. and always will.. now im gonna draw anime again after anatomy :)
for now ... more anatomy :).. coming soon... Anime
I love your signature message, It is such a good thing to belive, I belive it in theory but its harder to think that way :)
Anyway, great update! It looks amazing :D
Solid practice in here, keep pushing it^^
Your anatomy studies are looking good. Keep it up!
@ Spiralpen : :) thank you.. i think the hardist part of life is the fight against ur own mind .. if u conquare ur own mind u will conqure the world!! and i belive only small tiny percent of ppl do that in life... :)
@ Alextooth thank you and i will ^_^
