    Definitely bookmark worthy. He updates it very frequently, which is very rare for a working artist of his calibur.

    I bet asdf owns a lot of copyrights around here...

    awesome work so far.
    I really liked how the pencil sketch remained a visible part of your squirrel painting.

    a la bapsi: Thanks, I've seen you around a lot, but for whatever reason never looked at your sketchbook. Your work is very good, especially the traditional stuff.

    Craig Mullins is coming to Vancouver Anomaly Oct 30!
    And my god, the list of attendees is astounding...

    Tom Scholes, Tran Ngyuen, Daryl Mandryk, Craig Mullins!!

    Those are some of my favourite artists (period!) and the fact that all of them will be at the same event is amazing.

    One of my life goals is to do a master study of all of Craig Mullins paintings. Here are a few:

    Your sketchbook page spreads are blowing my mind! You've really pushed them a lot farther since the start of this thread. Nice work!

    Hey portablecity, you're the first person to mention that. I've actually been making a concentrated effort to try to fill out my sketchbook pages. If there's space, why not fill it. It helps me by keeping me focused on drawing random crap instead of surfing the net....

    Tigermilk: I've been drawing a lot of pencil recently because colour scares me and I'm trying to work on my imagination.

    Imagination except middle girl is from life, my B★R S figure:

    I haven't done any of these girl studies in a long while so I thought I'd start doing some more. Expect a lot more of these! This is ref of Rina Aizawa:

    My god I LOVE those sketches. Grah!
    You make me want to sketch more.
    You also make me want to get a moleskin again, I really like those sketchbooks. The stuff ends up being a bit more precious so you have to force yourself not to doodle too much.
    Atleast thats how I feel

    Great job on all the stuff! I'm going to have to check into your stuff more.

    Oh my lord, I want to eat your sketches, maybe then I can acquire the grace that you instill in your drawings! O_O

    And that highlight effect on the Rina painting's hair is just magical. It's so impressionistic, and yet it's perfect to express the texture of the hair and the sunlight! *swoon*

    And I'm simply in love with your gesture drawings. Soooo lovely and expressive.

    A nitpicky thing (bc I try not to leave without some sort of crit), sometimes your ladies lack form in the hips and become really flat. But as I say, nitpicky!

    BLAST OFF!

    Wow, so many replies, thanks guys. You convinced me to update my sketchbook again, so soon.

    Thanks D.C., those first pages are so old, even page 3 is really old.

    Hi Justas! I'm glad you've asked. I use a contel pastel pencil which I like much more than charcoal. When you put them down, they behave similarly to charcoal except they're a bit harder to smudge. The thing I like best about pastel is the cool colours you get and how much more control I can get with a pencil vs a brick of charcoal.

    The way I learned to use them is by watching Glenn Vilppu, an absolute master! There is only one thing that I ever recommend to people who want to take art seriously, and that is to watch Glenn Vilppus videos!



    He recently put a bunch of previews on youtube. Watch them. I highly recommend them, even over Loomis, over Bridgman, over any Gnomon!


    His website: http://vilppustore.com/anatdvd.htm
    His youtube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/vilppust...19/hbQjK9a1R3U

    !!!!!!!!

    Loathsome, I've felt the same way about Moleskines too, thats why I fill up each page . P.S. Don't hold your breath if you're waiting for updates, Sometimes I won't update for months...

    lolbbq: Colour... I think I might finally be starting to get it. The best thing I recommend when first trying to get the colour right, is to be as bold and daring as possible. Make lots of mistakes so that you know what to do in the future. Its totally risk free in Photoshop too, all you have to do when you want to try something is to create a new layer, do absolutely anything you want! If it's good, drop the layer and keep it, if it's not so good, delete the layer and all you've done is spent a minute trying something new. This advice will apply to anything too, anatomy, values, forms.

    That's how you go about learning how to use colour. As for how I actually do it? I was going to write a big long paragraph about how I do it, but I think I'll just do a little demo on my next post. So perhaps wait for that.

    Thanks NickyBeats, good to see you at DSG, keep going there!

    Surus, ezekrialase

    kiwigarbage you know, you've got an amazingly keen eye. In the last few weeks I've been thinking about the hips and how my drawings lack a strong sense of box-form in the pelvis. I've been meaning to specifically study the pelvis, and I think I'm going to do it now.

    vices I've contemplated the idea of doing a comic, but I have no ability to write. I like drawing girls!

    Only girls this post, just for your vices!
    I said I'd do more of those girl studies. Heres one, same girl. Looking back at the previous one, man it sucks now...

    Wow, I'm really impressed by your progress. I love how drawings occupy place in your sketchbooks. You don't leave much white space, but somehow it doesn't look cluttered.

    I see you're trying to merge anime style with realism. Nice

    incredible sketchbook, I like how dark you get your pencil sketches, any advice on how to achieve this dark but still very sharp finish? My dark pencils eg 4b tend to just be soft and messy and loos sharpness far too quickly to be useful and then I always have to change to hb or 2h to do lighter lines, just takes too much time swapping pencils all the time...
