This is for a collaborative work with a friend on deviantart.com, hopefully it's good enough because I've never done anything like it.
If only both of us had tablets, things would be much easier!
An acrylic I've done six months ago (one of the two I've ever done):
Cheers and cheese!
-> Creusa: Oh yes, it's a sexy bird indeed!
I completed the Spartan Camp challenge numero 193, yay!
It was indeed fun.
The rest of the challenge:
that acrylic looks cool, I like the white fish.
Wow you even draw old men with pencils :V
Wow, what are you man? Some kind of a doctor,
or you work in some secret nuclear lab? Cause when
I saw you in that white coat, I got the instant phobia
that you will going to do some surgery on me sooner or later.
With you mp3 player on. Your work is interesting, definitely
not boring and I can tell you that you have that natural
inborn artistic spirit, nothing artificial there. Your drawing
style and illustrations are very fun to watch and if you
push this to another level it will be even greater for the audience.
For crits, I should say that you are rushing with most of your
drawings, ending with a bad proportions and looking very sketchy,
where there would me much more to do and more unused potential.
Try to think more before you draw. Plan in forth and design things.
Do one drawing more than only once. When you do some nice
concept and feel the potential within, try to work that one out
more and use different angles different poses.
Not to talk too much, I generally enjoyed going
through your drawings, hope you
will stick around and we could work together as a team.
That will be so great.
dude, i love your pencil work and style, amazing
Working on my Portfolio
-> Sushy: Thanks a lot! Bleib Gesund!
-> LtPlissken: Thank you! I work as a chemist at an environmental laboratory, it's really boring, I promise you.
What do you mean by pushing it to another level? More polishing? Better understood ideas? Because my friend told me that as an illustrator my ideas and drawings need to appeal to a larger crowd (that is to other people other than myself).
-> Aragah: Thank you, pencils are really my comfort zone. Been exploring a little watercolors as of lately. Wish me luck!
Ok, so I'm working on my portfolio and thinking of ideas. Been checking a few illustrators' blogs to get the idea of what they're doing - and I love what I see, because there is a lot of fun in their works.
So I'm sharpening my pencils, wetting my watercolors brushes, uncapping my markers, chiseling my charcoals, and buying a tablet!
Ideas and some realizations:
Something I try to do but fail at (well, I don't actually attend bars regularly, so that's my fail)-
Something strange that occurs every couple of days now-
Some ideas -
An idea (not refined, rough as hell)-
Unfinished Watercolors, an idea about a couple I've seen (still considered as a "sketch")
I remember that sleepless night I've had not too long ago-
p.s - I did some yoga at home, using this app I downloaded. I never felt those muscles before...
Trying to figure out a character, I really like this one that I've made:
your new marker work looks awesome *___*
This one's cute. The one with the guy trying to sleep is funny. Good work... it looks like a lot of fun.
It's so obvious to me that you're comfortable with your skills and medium and subject when you make random scribbles that seem to just fall together actually turn into coherent images.
i like your style - its like sub comedy cartoonish but wih a good solid knowlege of anatomy to support it. great sb so far!
Thank you for your comments, really appreciate them! :)
Decided it was the right time to watch "Pulp Fiction" for the first time, but first let's upload a tiny something from today-
I drew this after watching Pulp Fiction for the first time at 3am.
That movie was awesome, I think I understood for the first time what are true manly men are about.
One more, an awesome morning opener it was. The theme of killing the messenger is really interesting.
Two more, this is a very enjoyable chill out time with papers and pencils. Something strange happened to me after watching Pulp Fiction.
Sushy - Thanks!
A few more - one that I did at home not too long ago but forgot to upload:
And two more that I did at work today, first one is just a silly doodle:
Second one is an illustrated graph of my love life (written in hebrew unfortunately):
x-axis is time in months, y-axis is my affection towards the girl ranging from 0% to 'hallucinating'. There is a stepping down in caring for them girls, why? No idea.
So you like Pulp Fiction, eh? Ever seen Kill Bill 1 or 2? Good stuff. And Reservoir Dogs as well.
Interesting idea... the girlfriend graph. You have long relationships :)
Well, let's keep going buddy. Those awesome ideas are not going to draw themselves :D
Chad, I think I learned about real men from Pulp Fiction like nobody was ever able to teach me about, not even Fight Club. Yeah, learning stuff from movies, eh?
I saw Kill Bill vol.1 and 2, but Reservoir Dogs? Hmm, I haven't heard of it and I better check it out! :)
Hi Kerah, Our friend p sage, Chad, says you may be doing some sketchgroup challenges with us. So I thought I'd take a look at your sb. Really liking what I see...you have a very nice touch with your graphites. I see you like to do portraits, and caricatures/cartooning...I do as well. I dig the marker image and the watercolor above too. Looking forward to seeing more!
Jephyr- you awesome person you! Hi and thanks for all the kind words :)
It's a pleasure doing this sketchgroup with you and the others!
Ok, this one is called "Let go of the dead" - imho it's a serious psychological problem when a person just can't let go of the dead person and just carries him in his mental luggage all the time to everywhere he goes.
Heyaa! Have been following your SB for quite a while! Anyhow before i took a look at your work i had alllllmost forgotten the legendary Andrew Loomis. Well i think i have to thumble through his books at least once ;) anyhow niiice work maaan and i rlly enjoy your characters and how bring them to live. Looking forward to see some more stuff! ;)
:) Right back at ya! :) Looking forward to it as well.

Wow, awesome amount of updates man! Loving the personality and character that come through in your drawings. Would love to see some more anatomy studies out of you though. :P
I love the "old man" drawing!
Your technique with that pencil is getting stronger and stronger by the day! Can't wait to see the next update.
Hah... I like the had he has sticking out from behind her :)
Reminds me of weekend at bernies
Ztak: You've been following me for quite a while? Wow, you have no idea what a sentence like this does to a newbie like me. I really have to finish Andrew Loomis's book "Fun with a Pencil", because it's really good but I certainly need to continue working on my portfolio for a respectable art school here.
Jephyr X: My fellow pretty cool guy ;) This specific piece? Probably not, although it seems like a good addon to my portfolio. But no, I don't think it's creative enough :/
MBK: Long time no see MBK! I have to visit your sketchbook and check on your progress as well, I do remember a lot of overflowing awesomeness from you :) About them anatomy studies, I really want to do some but they're tiresome :(
p sage: Haha. I wonder if you grab your girls like this as well!
Anyway, I met a really cool girl from Jerusalem yesterday and we had an awesome time eating Pasta at this restaurant. One of the waiters at the restaurant accidentally spilled our coffee, and I really felt bad for the guy. So I drew him a quick and nice sketch. I think that cheered him up, hopefully.
I really like the cartoony style you have going. and you really captured a great sense of personality in that first drawing of the guy with the long hair :)
