    We are of peace , always!

    The members here bring about such a motivational backdrop to the whole community and i hope i can contribute too!
    Not easy to keep the sketchbook constantly running , but i'll definately try to keep up ,
    I have some kinda disorder for only showing the better stuff and not the messy random stuffs that i keep ,hopefully shedding away this conscious behavior in the habit of keeping a sketchbook.

    This is an excellent start to a sketchbook, it looks like you've got a firm grasp on anatomy and I think you'll do quite well here. Make sure to soak up some of the local art, we've got bonified professionals roaming these forums, they're always a good place for insparation.

    Elwell and Mentler are probably the heaviest posters around here and they have some cool stuff. Though I don't know if those two in particular are professionals, I'd presume so.

    Oh and make sure to put a link to your sketchbook in your sig, I see you don't have it their yet. It's a great way to get input.

    I think the problem with pen&ink is that there is no Ctrl+z command.

    writers and artists have a lot in common -- we both draw from life, we both paint pictures, and we'll both spend to many sleepless nights on our work.

    Beautiful work! Love it all. The tech-women and fairy-eater are my favs.
    Wouldn't mind seeing bigger and more tuts
    Do you use photoshop only?
    Thanks for sharing

    Awesome. Those last two are great, the robotic chick and the lizard thing are really cool. The Asian chick(your ex?) looks cross-eyed, though...is she? No disrespect meant, just curious. If she's not, it needs fixed, but I'm sure you've already seen it. Anyhow, great SB, you've got skills.

    Can I ask you how you get your highlights? On my paintings, it seems that no matter how high up I go, it always isn't the sheen that it seems on yours. Is it kind of the arrangement you have the dots of light, like on here:

    http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1186038203

    They look bright on first glance but then on closer inspection they look like regular bright colours, but I just can't get mine to look like that. Is it the kind of brush you use, the colours surrounding the light, etc?

    Sorry if I sound kind of demanding =/

    Amazing sketchbook!

    Well as for me , on reaching the highlights , i must constantly be aware of the surrounding values , and to hit the right brightness ,the surrounding value mustnt be as bright as to compete with the highlight itself,Since the highlight is after all a type of focus point.(ps. i dont use any other brush other than hardbrush and softbrush in ps)

    And you may want to try this , i nvr really use white as a highlight as maximum value (i try to not over exhaust the potential of the brightness) if everything goes mega shiny , the work kinda lose attention. I use basic colour contrast like a warm skin should apply a baby cyan as highlight. Or yellow.

    In some cases u can define highlight by using extremely small spots or specks of supercharged colours , n placing it around randomly would give it a pore like texture.

    And for some practices i also learned that the sharpness of the highlight depends on the surface , a wet or moist , oily surface tend to catch Sharp specks of highlight.

    (:/) I am afraid thats the best i can translate...Hope it helps in abit.

    Ahah awesome art! I particularely love the texture of your female characters' skin - it seems soft, like baby skin.

    Great job

    Wow, some really great stuff in here. Favorites are the cyborg chick, and the pencils in post # 17. I was wondering for you paintings what kind of brush settings do you normally use? ( such as flow, opacity settings) or do you just set them both to pen pressure? Just wondering, since I'm currently working on a painting, and think the build up of my strokes and how I'm using the settings probably aren't the most effective way. Oh wanted to comment on the cyborg painting, in the step by step, I think the eyes would have looked pretty insane in black.
