    not bad of a job uve doen there... ur just like me i guess - we like to spend alot of time on one piece no matter wat type of pic it is.
    pic is still clear even with the sketchy look coz ur proportions r pro lol. only thing u prob should have done was put some highlights in ur hair coz it looks like u just placed black paint over ur head.
    visit my sketchbook (gkrit's sketchbook) somtime if u like ... point out wat i could do to make my stuff better!! lol
    (could u tell me how to do that "my sketchbook" thing underneath ur post so ppl can click on it if they want to go ... me noob )

    but nice work and post some more so we have more to comment on.

    i just started to do some self-portrait lately, and i will try to do more to practice colors.
    I was trying to do some sketchy work since i always paint smooth things b4. i kept this one rough and no blending; i spent 3 hours on this piece

    Very nice start to this sketchbook, man. I like the variety of hues in the self portrait, and the muscle chart looks pretty much flawless. Excellent work.

    here's two of my school projects: Medusa mask and Muscle chart.

    The medusa mask is the final project for visualization class, which is basicly drawing class, rendered with pencils.

    The muscle chat is for Anatomy class, it was a big project and took so long to drawing it.

    this is a drawing i did a little bit earlier, i found that i really like this kind of theme. some of my friends ask me about the story of it but i can;t really tell, it is pretty dreamful i guess.

    A mysterious castle. this is a project i did for drawing class, after drawing this castle i colored it with markers; however i did not really like the final effect.
    so i post the line drawing here and i hope all of you guys can grab it and color it your way (you can do it really quick and rough) and post it back, i want to see what kind of effect it can get
    btw, if you want to change some part of the line drawing just do it.

    here it is: The Castle

    Cool work draniel!

    How did u get the perspective on the last one?? was it a grid underneath?

    I need a simple way to sort out perspective, I understand it but you need a massive bits of paper to get in 2 point perspective any suggestions?

    Thanks man, this drawing is from a drawing class, so it is done by perspective.
    i did a really small sketch for the building first based on a perspective grid so that i can get the VP points pretty far away from each other, and then i use copy machine to enlarge it and did the details.
    after that i scaned it into computer and narrow down the top part so that it gives a slight three point perspective instead of two point one.

    Said: there's two really rough ideas i got b4, and i want to see how would other people color it though.

    Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook, man. Looks like you have some great stuff happening here too. Your anatomy work looks really solid (I checked out your website too), but yeah, you can't really get too much of it. Keep posting man, I'll keep looking.

    I love the perspective on "The Castle"
    The line work on the tree at the top is cool looking


    And as for the color schemes your looking at

    Hard choice, the one on the left has a good match of colors they compliment each other pretty well.
    The right one I like the colors/blending for the clouds but the tree being green kinda contrasts too much for me at least

    (maybe try making it brownish and use the opening at the top of the clouds for a yellowish lighting? Just a thought)



    Well anyways keep it up

    Jfierce thanks, the reason i make the tree green is because the concept: everything around that area is deadly and dry, but the tree is the heart of the castle and brings it life......but it's just a first idea, so it would be good with any color

    very nice pic of that actor, i see u focused a lot on his face to look good then u seemed to have slacked off for the rest of it (unless u havent finished), but i guess thats wat speed painting is. however i would like to see a more refined version of it if u ever feel like doing it again lol.
    just keep em comin and will surely take a look

    Check out my SKETCHBOOK ...looking for helpful advice!

    gkrit thanks for the comment, hehe, yeah, the rest of the part does look rough, I am not sure if i will refine it more or not, maybe i should do more other thing instead.

    The first one is great. You proved here that you can draw very well, and also that you can understand lght and put color, but I don't think I like your palettes very much.

    Wow, your art is really beautiful! I especially dig that Shaolin Monk looking piece.

    Oh...I just checked out the link for Green Snake. Im a HUGE Tsui Hark fan! I havent seen that one...I better find a copy. My fave of Tsui's stuff is Legend Of Zu. Love that stuff! My favorite comics are wuxia Hong Kong comics like Stormriders, Force of Buddhas Palm, Drunked Fist, Dragon Tiger Gate, Saint Legend, etc...

    Keep up the great work! I'll keep an eye on your thread for more.

    Cheers!~~~Patrick

    I tried ZBrush the first time tonight, and it was sooo fun, i love this program!

    the stuff i create is the head of the Elf Gollum from The Lord of the Rings, the Elf Gollum was normal but the ring changed him and transfered him into an ugly monster.

    My Gollum still has a relative normal look so that i suppose he did not get the ring yet, hehe.

    I will do more stuff on ZBrush later

    some sketches from my sketchbook : )
    the last one is a homework my teacher gave me: to grab reference from a movie magazine and put them togather and create some image (kinda like a drawing collage). It is quite interesting stuff

    Great SB so far. No major crits, just would love to see some faster, looser stuff too. Maybe with inks, so your mistakes and planning can't be removed.
