    Nice update, I really like the colours, not too saturated, seems to work well, the portrait is quite crisp too, seems like you're really putting your foot down, I look forward to future updates, thanks again for the support, i'll be stopping by here on a regular basis, keep working hard and if at times you're lacking motivation, take a look at this site, it's great for motivation: www. abduzeedo. com

    Cold, thanks for dropping by, I love your sketchbook. However, I couldn't understand what you meant by 'stay away from greys and blacks when working with colour'. It would really help me if you elaborated on that a bit.

    Invalid User, thanks, that link is really good, I think I'll go through it when I have time. Appreciate your support.


    Haven't been able to update yesterday because of all the pressure at college. Also, I have gotten my hands on a couple of books, which, after reading through good portions of them, I feel are essential reads for most artists.

    The first one is Alla Prima : Everything I Know About Painting by Richard Schmid. It is really an incredible book, containing some important tips by a person many consider a living master. His art reminds me of some of my favourite realist painters (especially Degas) in a curious way. I'm still reeling under his spell, so excuse the fanboyism.

    The other book is Art in Theory 1900-2000 : An Anthology of Changing Ideas edited by Charles Harrison and Paul Wood. It is truly essential for any person interested in theory and history like me. It covers a major period of modern and premodern art, and contains writings of major critics such as Greenberg, Derrida, and Foucault. Overall, as I am now, I can recommend this book to any person. However, I think it's important to remember that Harrison himself is known to be slightly averse to an extreme of self-reflexive art, thus you may find some implicitly disparaging comments in the introductory sections. But, the excerpts themselves are invaluable.

    I'm posting a couple of sketchbook pages for today. The portraits on the second page are copies of Richard Schmid's work. I... feel terrible how I failed to grasp how he models form. The major part of it completely deluded me.

    I think trying to understand the underlying form before starting, is paramount. It's tough at times to remember.

    Really dig the rendering on the latest character, is it done with a mechanical or traditional pencil?

    definitely no need to be so hard on yourself about those portraits - they seem successful to me. Also, thanks for the tip about Schmid - I'll try and get hold of all prima as soon as possible.

    I went through your entire thread the other day. Did I not comment in here yet? Sorry

    Your pencil work is superb, especially in this latest update. Definitely keeping my eye on your thread; you're going places with your art.

    Black Spot, that is so true! Richard Schmid himself talks about how he prefers every stroke he lays down to be the final stroke for that area. As even Mr. Gurney says, painting is easy, thinking is hard.

    albino-Z, the whole sketchbook? Wow, thank you so much. I'm glad you felt like browsing through it in its entirety.

    NickyBeats, thanks, glad you like my stuff.

    mrd33ds, thanks for dropping by.

    Kungfoowiz, thank you for dropping by, and all the praise. It's more than I deserve.

    yongs, thanks. Art in Theory is an excellent read.

    Invalid User, I used a traditional Staedler yellow pencil. It really doesn't matter what kind of pencil one uses. I prefer HB since it gives a good range.

    ThomasM, thanks for dropping by, you have a great sketchbook. Alla Prima is a great book, it'll be perfect for you.

    sin eater, thanks. I'm posting some studies here. Hope you like them.

    p sage, wow, it's incredible when I hear people took the time to go through my entire sketchbook. Thank you so much for taking the time.

    tokotewhero, thanks, your art is awesome. Really appreciate your praise; it means a lot.

    DStraX, thanks.

    maXmood, thank you.


    I really had this virulent desire to draw Blanka from Street Fighters, hence the update. I'm quite pleased with the final result, although one thing bothers me. Maybe right now, as I am, I'm a little too influenced by Phil Hale. Will try to shake off the overbearing influence next time. For now, this is it.

    Also, a few sketchbook pages.

    Great linework on those sketches, they show confidence.
    the rendering of Blanka is really interesting! I also see that you are very good with cartoonish or comic style like the hellboy on the previous page.
    That's nice cause you are learning many things focusing on characters (i think)..
    Keep up man!

    really nice blanka there haha, and really Phil Hale too. But the shape of the body shadows the right hand a little too much for me, kinda like parallel lines going on there. Maybe it's just me but just my 2 cents. Nonetheless, it's really awesome Inspires me to do some street fighter stuff as well haha

    Blanka looks great! but he does have a Phill Hale feel to him. nice work though.
    :Edit: I just noticed, his forarm is a bit skinny. atleast compared to his upper arm

    Great line economy on those figures, I like the idea of have multiple poses on the one figure (in terms of the arms)

    The comic strips are my favorite. I like the simplistic and smooth linework, excellent! I also like the design of the bad guy? in the comic..

    Looking nice

    Okay I just did a simple, not so good paintover... and that also not a complete one...
    basically just trying to do different type of edges... I am myself learning...

    But as you can see there, edges are about transition.... and theres also a transition of edges itself.
    You seem to erring on the side of hardness, me on the other hand err on side of soft edges, both are basically faulty.... we can help each learn the properties of the edges we are competent in.
    I have been studying velasquez for a while, and his stuff is all about edges, simple flat tones and awesome edges.
    I guess you are reading alla prima and Richard Schimd gives some great advice.

    In this crit I have tried to do a few different edges
    soft to semi-hard edge
    blurry to soft to hard...
    hard on one side and soft on other... obviously how a edge looks depends on many factors...
    And it really depends on the way you blend and make the strokes.. across the form makes good hard edges... vertical to the form makes good soft edges... if one can find a a good balance then you can make edges...

    About the drawings.. I think that you can put more lineweight in there as well as put lineweight in terms of perspective .

    So thats my two cents on the matter.... maybe it would be better if we discuss these things further here.... what say????

    Nice line work. Maybe a bit more variation in the weight along a line.

    Kungfoowiz, thanks a lot! I appreciate your support.

    knut-, thanks. Yes, for now I am focusing on the character, but I plan to branch out very soon.

    yongs, thanks for dropping by. I see what you mean by parallel shadows, but somehow it isn't creating a problem for me. Thanks for the crit though, I really appreciate it.

    DStraX, thanks for the crit. I'll look into it.

    Invalid User, thanks!

    Juki, thank you for dropping by. Is your name pronounced ju-ki or yu-ki?

    bhanu, yeah, man, I'm reading edges myself. You're right, I have a propensity for using hard edges. But on this particular piece, I have to kind of defend myself, because the hard-edged, unfinished look was exactly what I was going for. But other than that, man, your crit really helped me here. I'll try to look out for too many hard edges. Thanks for all the support!

    Tom van der Linden, thanks!

    Ludic, thank you. Glad you think so.

    NickyBeats, thank you for the continued support!

    Black Spot, yes, I was thinking the same thing. Tried to look into that in this post.

    GEB, thank you for dropping by. Does your name have anything to do with the Egyptian god of earth, Geb?

    Placeboast, thank you!


    I haven't been able to be active since I'm quite bowed by the pressure of university semesters. Thus, the art is also meagre in number. But enough with the excuses.

    The first one is a flat character. I just wanted to see if I could pull off a static character standing at three-quarters, since I noticed that I was drawing too many poses where the body was being covered by the forearm or similar such devices. I have to say I'm a little disappointed with this. But I learned a lot from it; I'll try not to repeat the mistakes.

    The second is a sketchbook page. The only I could come up with due to the semester pressure.
