Great stuff. Your work is very energetic. Your lines are very loose and expressive. Your style is more sketchy and I've been told that such a style lends itself more to dynamic and loose drawings. However, as a beginner I'm still strugling with achieving nice clean lines. Do you have any advice on how to get looser lines without ruining line quality (like you seem to accomplish quite well)?

D.C- thanks man,
- as far as the lines go...use your whole arm to execute the movement in creating the line and not just with just your wrist.
see how tight you can get while still doing larger movements with your arm.
its mostly mileage.....
and remember to work to express the line as something that is alive...
yeah i know that might seem a bit dramatic...but i find it helpful in my own path..
...it will come.....just be tenacious in your persistence.
Thanks for the advice, I really appreciate it. Great piece, I like the contrast between the warm/soft colours and the sadness of the characters expression.
thanks man ...no problem
thanks for passing thru man
Beautiful. Impressive. Inspiring. Thank you.

cool quick fun sketchy storyboards I did for a Nike spot
Sketch- thanks man!
heres some photo / manipulation boards id did a while back for a video game cinematic spot. After they are all contructed they were painted over and color adjusted. all photoshop
lookin to push this guy further here are some of the front shots i had worked out:
puttin him in to an animation- the whole idea behind the scene is that he is smashing his way to thru this large atrium/ like room filled with obstacles - all to get to the center where his heart and hands are, before his soul escapes from the hole in his chest ......
ill keep updating it with final pieces....
here he is with out his hood

the ANGRY filipino-
thanks man! as far as tips- id say draw in pen only for a month or two! thatd light a fire under a whole lot of things....you wont be able to erase ....and it challenge you in different ways for sure. Id use a ultra fine tip sharpie or a black tombo brush pen. do a pages full of thumbnail people and gestures, filling in cast shadows with solid blacks....be willing to push them in directions as far as gesture that might not be always anatomically correct ...but look cool to you....lastly ....draw some characters doing something..that will definitely inspire motion.
hope some or any of that helps ...i try to hit those markers in my own path
oh awesome sb you got here, your style is wicked. and your pieces are all so damn lively. love your brushwork as well. keep em coming cannot wait to see more
To live is to create, to create is to live. Without art and music, I do not know how I would get by in my day to day life.
thanks man- yea ill have more to update on that last one soon
dont know why im on this word balloon kick but...eh..whatever...
i think what might make it so attractive right now is that by its very presence in the drawing...it automatically adds a comic bookish type feel too it...hmm....donno
tryin to sketch out whatever comes to mind without trying to hard to make it something at the beginning
heres what came out...gonna try some other brushes later
Addiso- thanks man
some sample comic pages
Wow!! Your work is amazing dude!! very inspirational
it all has a dynamic feel to it.
