Woah, long time. At least I got something in for the SPD there on the 1st. You should go check out the self portrait thread if you can get on it - it's nutty.
And a random girl in a random sketch
And more from my pub sketch group - I had minotaurs on the brain...
drd - haha, no problem. Good to hook up with more CA'ers on facebospace. Anyone else who's on fb, hook up! Good fun.
I found some scans of some stuff from 1999. Mental. now, I was 21 then, so I should have been better... but there was still some fun pics here. I was scanning these in on my first scanner ever. It was awful, an a4 flatbed thing that didn't even have a brand name, if I remember correctly.
The resolution they're in was the best that scanner could do, I think. And one from today.
Very good stuff man. It shows that you're very talented and have a great style. I would still recommend you that you search for more of a 3d-ish approach to drawing. Try if possible to simplify your subject into primitive polygons. If you get use to it, shading may be easier and you will get more freedom about handling the figure in every position. Please don't stop posting, you're doing a great job.
You can achieve with a few simple lines what I never could. So many sketches, so much work invested, definitely pays off. You looks like a real serious guy on that self portrait photo. I have subscribed.
Fun stuff in the sketchbooks, man! Pretty good self portrait as well- one thing I'd add judging from it is that you need to start measuring more when working from observation. You're doing a lot of studies clearly and that's gonna go a long way, but believe me, they're going to start to get a LOT more accurate after you spend the hours on one very patiently done, accurately measured piece. Let's see some of that to go along with what you have here!
Dude nice sketches!! Really diggin' the line work, and some of the characters are pretty cool!
Some proportion faults in the portraits though, make sure you construct everything first.
Cool stuff mna, keep em' coming!
BOO! I've just dropped out of full blown lurker status and I thought finding some other Irish people would be a good start.
I like the moleskeine work. Kinda scary looking back at your stuff innit? Especially when you see the 16 year olds on CA who could draw rings around you even now... I should've started earlier. Gonna catch up though!
