    Hey long time no see! Everything is looking beautiful as always which leads me to..

    Don't be offended and don't be incredulous, but.. could you do me (and others) a huge favor and make a process video at normal speed? You don't have to add music or commentary, I just would love to see your brush strokes... ^^*

    Wow, new sketchbook for me to stalk! The tutorials on the previous page are very helpful, thanks for that

    Ill be using that link provided in your previous post also, its got some great resources.

    If I may, I noticed that on the 2nd image of your last post(with the girl about to be anime style tentacle raped), her right breast(right as to her anatomy, not the viewer) is popping out in a seemingly unnatural way. Its as if it was way bigger than her left breast and moreover, its popping OVER the right breast. Its awkward so im not sure how to explain it accurately but im sure you'll see it too. If its just me who is seeing it the wrong way then my apologies

    Your pencil work is amazing btw, im really digging this style!

    Lovely stuff! I really like the dragon. The look in it's eyes and lightning in contrast to the background really gives it this mood that tries to say 'Yes, I'm a dragon and sitting like this. So what of it? It's hot today'

    Nice sense of texture too... the rest of the works; where do I begin? It's fantastic. Let's leave it at that for now

    Hmmm.....heres another link full of girls. korean girls!

    @vices Well, I would love to... and I will definitely think about doing one, but not sure when I'll get it done o_O.

    SandyMan: Thanks very much, you are definitely right about that drawing. It was so very awkward while I was drawing it but for whatever reason I didn't want to try to change it. I just ignored it, which wasn't the best idea. Actually, one of my most recent drawings also suffers the same fate. I will need to do some more boob studies... yeah.... studies....

    Mila: Hmm, glad that emotions and feelings get through in my drawings. I'm a big fan of trying to add narrative in drawings.

    Master-of-Art: I agree! Still going forward!

    So, I'll post a bunch of sketches that shows how I progress my pencil drawings. I have no plans on finishing any of these. They're from one of my throwaway sketchbooks.

    I pretty much always start with a sketch like this. Focus most of my initial time on the face and spend a minuite or two getting a pose down. (about 5 mins total)
    Name:  scan0220.jpg
Views: 1342
Size:  104.2 KB

    Next I always render out the face. The most important part of a drawing. I erase and redo the sketch/drawing a lot, if it doesn't look good, it won't look better by rendering. Get it right at this stage before you proceed < important

    Then I just jump around to random places and fill in whatever floats my boat.
    Name:  scan0219.jpg
Views: 1329
Size:  153.9 KB

    And more rendering. The previous steps usually take about 10-20 mins. Going from those to this next step is about an additional 30 mins:

    +20 more mins (about an hour to do this):
    Name:  scan0222.jpg

Size:  172.1 KB

    Then, to do the background, fill everything out, render clothes, takes a very long time. about 4-6 hours to do something like this:

    Also, I never thought it was possible to paint a watercolour sketch during lifedrawing gesture sessions. But you can! These were 3 mins each:

    Sooo.... I've been gone a while. I went to Japan about 2 months ago. Did drawings while there:

    I remember when I use to do a lot of these. At the train station in Nagoya, those Japanese girls and their interesting fashion.

    wicked awesome progress shots, thanks for posting them with your explanation

    Your lines have a really nice loose flow to them, did you have to consciously learn that or did it come naturally?

    Thank you so much fro sharing your resources and even better your process. Greatly appreciated, I love to see how other artists minds work, and what works for them can help me alter and adapt my own processes. So thanks buddy . Anyway your 4-6 hour sketches are getting more fantastic, I really like the quotes/lines you throw in your work to give it more depth and narrative, I find it makes everything more intriguing, it really draws me into study your work more. Keep up the great work!

    He's got that affable insanity.

    Axelga2112: I disappear very often. I will probably start drawing a bit more now though. I go through those phases like everyone else.

    Mila: That particular one was a bit challenging. Getting the correct perspective and proportions is not one of my strong points.

    bobtail: I try to keep it interesting, both for me, and for everyone!

    Kungfoowiz:

    vices: Your lines have a really nice loose flow to them, did you have to consciously learn that or did it come naturally? I like my drawings to be clean, smooth and simple so I think it gets reflected in the way I draw (linework) so I guess my preference shows itself in the way I draw. I like drawing with clean strokes as opposed to scribbling stuff.

    Matt-Radway: I like experimenting with different mediums as well! I think that's a big reason there's so much variety in my work.

    smrtbob: Won't stop, can't stop!

    Jeremy Swan: Thanks, I always wondered if people actually read what I write, so I'm glad at least one person enjoys it~

    johnny24: Thanks!

    j.zhang: : ) I enjoy traveling and sketching the local environment. It's so different everywhere you go.

    ScindoMedia: Thanks!

    kevin_: Thank you!

    wutangclam: I think the biggest reason nobody draws in pencil anymore is because it takes sooooo much longer than digital. As per your question: the digital drawings you see (full character, full colour, full background) usually take 8 hours. The finished moleskin type drawings take 2-3x as long (and they're only black and white!) so 16-20 hours. I think that kinda explains why pencil is so rare.

    Ambiguity: For the girl studies in pencil I'm mostly focusing on getting down the faces and facial proportions. Also, I focus a bit on clothing and a bit on body proportions (arm length, neck connection, elbow connection, wrist and hand position). Not really focusing on rendering or muscle anatomy.

    Aragah: I will probably be posting more! I switched hobbies for a while (poker ) but now I think I want to come back to drawing.

    Nick Low: Thanks!

    Gpozzo: Thank you~ I always want my drawings to have a painterly look, so I like to keep the brushstokes visible and be an important part of the drawing.

    Kungfoowiz: Yeah.. when the drawing and values are solid, the colours won't break an image, so even though I think it's failed (colour wise) it's still held up by solid drawing/rendering.

    udonhead: Color choices! Color is difficult, glad you think they're doing good. I can still see room for improvement though~.

    A pencil page I finished up. I didn't like it, so I actually left it unfinished for about 3 months... Then I decided the reason I didn't like it was the face, so I erased the face and redid it. After I did that, I wasn't so annoyed by the page so it gave me the motivation to finish it up

    It's actually quite funny to see somebody painting with MSPaint. Don't you care about the missing Anti-aliasing in your lines?
    Would love to see more sketchbook pages, they are totally awesome.

    I take it you like Asian girls buddy? =D

    I really like these pencil renderings though, the value range you use shows some real confidence in shading.
