NEW STUFF IS ALWAYS ON THE LAST PAGE FROM NOW ON!!
Well, I've been posting in the finished section for so many years now, I realized I rarely ever get to post my everyday doodles...so here we go...the loose drawings that are hidden behind my very tight digital pieces.....crits and comments are more than welcome...for my full portfolio, please visit: www.freewebs.com/salamunicart/

These are great! Is this your usual style for your ordinary sketchbook? I really like the lines!
Nice drawings. The detail you capture is impressive. I'm also mystified by how you seem to put everything down in one stroke, no sketchy lines, no underdrawing, or anything. Also, I've never seen your stuff before, but your finished stuff is great.
mynameisrichard yea man....this is how I always work.....It helps me loosen up since my finished work is always very clean and tight..so in my sketchbook I go all out.....loose lines..abstracted figures.....just to keep my eye to hand coordination in tact.
Factor Zero I'm glad u're diggin' it ...thanks
funfetus The reason I'm able to put things down in one stroke is becasue I'm allowing myself to abstract the figure and do not worry too much about making everything perfect. George Pratt always taught me that by abstracting, you are eucating yourself about the things you see.....thanks for stopping by buddy..more work to come this week.
NEW STUFF IS ALWAYS ADDED ON TO THE TOP SECTION OF THE IMAGES!!!!!...thanks..C & C are highly encouraged
Andy P ANDY!!!!.....HEY MAN.....good to see you on conceptart....i dind't know you were on here as well.....I've been observing your sketch blog for a while (which was a true inspiration) yet never got a chance to comment. Your stuff is looking really fabulous....and I'm loving the design of your website....where are you residing now?...ever going to visit Richmond again?....if so..we need to go do some drawing man....I also got some more finished work up online at : www.freewebs.com/salamunicart/ so let me know what you think.. take care and keep in touch!!!
these lines are great!! what you using for it? can´t be a regular pencil?
also love the detail you put in your drawings! good work, man!
Arne S. Hey buddy..thanks for stopping by..I'm glad you are digging the pages. I'm actually just using a simple Pilot Precise Rolling pen..and a Pentel Brush Pen for filling in the darks...the colors stuff is simply a watercolor wash.
Hehe, I love these pages, very dynamics and loose pen use!
The faces are very lovely, they have a lot of character but also a bit of a tragi-comedy quality. It's a good thing you posted these sketches here, I know your colour-finished-art and this is just a very nice dessert. I would love to see you do some comic pages... I think you could pull it of easily.
Gilles Hey buddy..thanks for stopping in once again.....I am glad you are liking the drawings....my sketchbook has always been a very personal part of me that I have never shared much with the public, but I am very happy to see that it is so positively received. I am actually considering changing my proffessional direction from the work I've done before (the very tight stuff)...to a more loose approach such as these sketches. One of my influences for drawing this loose was my mentor George Pratt....and Steve Mummford's "Baghdad Journal"....I will be posting in here on a weekly (if not daily) basis...so keep a look out.
chenga Thanks for your kind words..I'm glad you are digging the work buddy.
(more to come soon)
very very nice book. love the colour work.
Check my sketchbook if you're bored
And my blog!
spudstudios hey there....thanks for dropping in and thanks for your kind words..I'm glad you like the sketches.....I checked out your sketchbook thread..and I must say it is fabulous.....beautiful drawings..and I'm loving the painting quickies.......keep it up!!!!!!!
A few more sketches have been added to the bottom of the thread....C & C are highly encouraged.
Some half drunk figure drawings have been added to the sketch thread...hope you enjoy..... C & C are highly ancouraged... (I need them guys)....I will continue to update on a daily or weekly basis.....Thanks everybody.
Bling bling man. Those are lookin great. And those are some good lookin 5 sec gestures, you got way better results than I was ever able to get. I actually miss doin those things! The only crit I'd have for the figures is to try and not blow off the feet, but lord knows I'm guilty of that too.
I took a look through your portfolio, damn a lot of awesome stuff I hadn't seen before. Love that Meganck portrait. You've gotten a lot of really awesome pieces workin with Brick, that seems like a really cool gig for ya.
Also, I'm still livin in Richmond, a couple blocks behind the museum, so I'm down for drawin some time. I really should get down to those figure drawing sessions too.
Renier van der West Thanks for checking out the portfolio man...I'm glad you are enjoying the pieces..More updates to come soon,.
Andy P Thanks for dropping in again buddy.....I'm glad you are digging the work....Your stuff is still light years ahead..but it's always a pleasure to drool over your sketchbook pages for inspiration. You need to come out tomorrow night for figure drawing man.........keep in touch and keep doing that kickass art....BTW...."Slayer" fukkn' rules!!!!!!
ok...so this is the "second" update today.....just making sure it's making sense: new stuff is always added on to the last post......C & C are highly encouraged...thanks guys,
more sketches were added at the end of the thread.
More stuff has been added at the bottom of the thread......I hope some of you guys can give me some constructive criticism....where I need to go.....where I need to stay......anything is highly appreciated..thanks everybody,
Hey, don't know how much critique I can give you, your stuff is pretty cool. The only thing I noticed is that the hands you draw (only when they're attatched to figures) tend to be kind of .... squiggly? Like in the picture second from last, the face is really nicely done, and then his fingers look like they are almost broken. If it was done differently, I would say to be careful of the shapes that you were using, but it doesn't look like you use underdrawing, so... Maybe that's what you should be trying out? You've obviously got your pen/ink technique down, why not try drawing with volume rather than with line? It will improve your line drawings because you'll understand better how the shapes work, and therefore the lines.
GREAT lines....I'm trying to get more expressive with my lines myself. Maybe more contour practice.
daestwen you are absolutely right...I am havinf trouble with doing the hands on people that are moving since those seem to be the most active parts of the models that I'm drawing.....good point..and yess...absolutely correct..I need to work more with shape and value.
thanks for the crit.
rickrude glad you are digging teh work buddy..thanks for checking in.
I'm freakin' in love. Just like...the confidence you must have to be able to do all that in pen. And so cleanly! You must be oozing with talent and experience! I don't want to sound like an asskisser, but I've never been so genuinely impressed. But then again, I'm just a newbie. But just wow.
fearoffrying hehehe...you are too kind. Honestly, it's just practice. Believe me, my first attempts at this approach were nothing like it. But once you start trusting your eyes and speed up the drawing process, you would be suprised how far you can get after even just one sketchbook. So all I can say is practice practice and more practice. If you'd like, you can also check out some of my more finished work at www.freewebs.com/salamunicart/ and let me know what you think. thanks for checking in buddy and keep in touch
