    There you go Don't worry about the gap, I had time-outs too, one lasted over 6 months. Only I dont know whether this is a relapse or a remission haha!

    Anyways, nive to eee you back, that Mermaid-scetch look great! Only in the cooring-proces you lost the dynimics of the lines, which where the strong part in your pencil-version.

    Nice update! Glad to see you back with some great fresh lines. The faces are looking well but here and there, maybe you can focus a bit more on the center line of the face to get your proportions even more accurate.
    The mermaid painting is looking great. Nice to see you experimenting like these. Sometimes it's useful to see other artist artwork that have a similar style to learn a thing or two. Hope to see some more!

    Hello hello...no critiques from me just encouragement - I was poking around in my sketchbook and found your comment, realizing that you've been away! You've still got it with those faces you drew, some have nice features, and the experimentation turned out well...its refreshing when you try new things with art, isnt it? See you

    Hey. I sketch in class too. It's mostly back of the head but at least you can learn to draw head from different angles .

    The mermaid is really nice stylisation. Colors look good.

    Don't worry about the gaps, I do it myself, once I disappeared for a year

    Great update, like the mermaid.

    The pencil sketches look great too, nice lines going there.

    Keep going ^^

    Hahaha, anyone remember the last line I wrote in this SB? Let's recap:
    "Well, sorry, that's just about it! I think I can fairly firmly promise that such a gap won't happen again. See you around folks!"
    Famous last words? Heh.

    Ok anyway, I haven't been around for like 3 months but I've found my groove again and eagerly want to join the drawing game again! Been going through busy university and general life issues which kept me from drawing regularly. But I won't bore with details! I have a few pieces to show, although the amount is pathetic, considering the gap between updates. I really want to keep it updated much more frequently, but uni doesn't always agree. Well, let's start with answering all you good folks:

    Clochette - Thanks a lot! No, this is actually just the pen tool in PS, not vector. Looks similar, though! I made some pieces in this styles years ago, quite fun, should experiment more.
    algenpfleger - Hee, thanks buddy! Us artists always sketch in class, don't we?
    FightingSeraph - Thanks! Yep, it was a while inbetween earier and yet again now! Hopefully I won't make a habit out of this...
    Renegade89 - Yes, I live! And thanks for the pointers. Yah, that dude's full length sketches were all wrong, I was just for some reason trying to let it fit. Shouldn't have!
    Renegade89 - Thanks, I agree about the pencil lines, they were much more dynamic in the sketch. One of my biggest obstacles, transferring the line quality into a coloured PS version. Practice it is!
    Yazzman - Thank you!
    The7Artist7 - Heehee, thanks so much
    Pretty_Ange - Sabrina, dearest! Glad to see you here, hopefully you'll start popping up more frequently after you return home! Thanks for the comment
    Maestro Andres - Hey, thanks for the good advise! I definitely need some more proportions practice.
    Jakers - Thanks for stopping by! Yeah, always fun to try new stuff, definitely recommend it, hehe.
    Farvus - Thanks! Yeah, it's probably the only time I draw the back of the head, in class that is. Good practice
    D@niel - Thanks man, glad you dig!
    Sorknes - Thanks! Glad to see other members also disappear, us artists need to fuel the batteries I guess
    Monkeydominator - Thanks so much for the lovely comment! It really makes my day to hear my little sketches inspire others.
    Bullsey - Takk! Ég sendi ţér skilabođ fyrir löngu sem svarađi spurningunni, en jamm, ég er í LHÍ
    sjuskadur - Takk! Thanks, and of course you can draw nice clothing, it's just a question about enough practice, keep it up!

    Let's start with the sketch heap. A reminder: most of these were done in a dark presentation room at school in an awkward sitting position, so these aren't all...up to par. But it's something, I guess:

    I got a request from a friend to draw Katara from Avatar as a samurai, so here's the sketch:
    Name:  katara-samurai-skissa.jpg
Views: 889
Size:  399.0 KB

    And the coloured version. I was getting so sick of that static digital look in most of my coloured pieces, so I was trying to jazz it up with some textures and whatnot. Not sure if I succeeded, but some experimenting doesn't hurt.

    And lastly, a SP I did just earlier today. Fiiinally a SP that actually looks like me! I spent that extra time to get all the nuances and subtleties in my facial features, constantly erasing. I guess that paid off. I feel like something finally clicked in my head, I need to do more critical observations like these. But yah, didn't maybe spend quite as much time on the shading, slapped that fairly quickly on, just to make it pop a little in 3D!

    I really hope this poor SB won't suffer from months between updates again. I won't promise anything, busy at school and such, but here's hoping!

    Asa! Good to know the studio life hasn't buried you!

    I like this update very much. As for the texture work on the Katara Samurai, I think it works well in the background and around the image, but it's fogging out the character a bit being so directly over it... It's giving a feeling of the background being the foreground, you know?

    Always good to experiment, though! I like it.

    Be well :]

    welcome back dude!!!!

    you know, i really love the way you organize your sketchbook pages. it takes a skill i don't have yet. but i'm catching on! anyway, you're not happy with your color...i think you might try traditional things, and see how you can apply that to digital? get some books on color theory, or the jason manley color theory dvd (when it comes out), or the g'mon one about color theory. or ask someone who knows how to use color much better than i do (which is quite a lot of people, so you got a lot to choose from!). hope this helps. take care dude, and come back often. we're waiting.

    Wonderful sketches as always, and great progress on the digis!
    Your drawing style is really cool, and the self portrait is great too, (you look very pretty)

    And cheers for stopping by my SB again too,

    Hi! And great to have you back! You have great potential! hehe, I'd like to see you make animations, you have a very good simplyfied style and it would be good pose-practice, too! Anyways, I'm not really hyped about the samurai-drawing. It doesn't really look eastern at all. Firstly, there's really no clue about her being a samurai other than the sword (And samurais had 2 swords afaik) and the writing, which is really in a nother style than the drawing. The lines you drew over your scetch don't resemble the ink-quality in any way.There's no movement, no randomness and no weight-shifting in there as is in the kalligraphy. Also, the coloring in itself looks very artificial. And although it is Katara, she doesn't look asian, even with those eyes altered. It's sad, because it is apparently put much work and thought into it, the hair is espescially nicely designed. Your texutre-work kind of killed it.

    The self-portrait is REALLY nice, though. You're a beauty!

    Please don't wait as long for the next update, k?

    Really nice self portrait there. It helps a lot to slow down and think carefully, huh? It's easy to assume that drawing is right brain, so we should stop thinking and just let our creativity take over, but there really is a lot of critical analysis attached to good work. Hope to see more soon.

    Asa !!! Great to see new drawings heh !
    My crit is about proportions, watch out the big heads! Appart this, the Avatar piece is nice, i like the hand, hard angle you chosed, it's cool! I like the sketch a bit more than the colored one tho, maybe because of the blur you did everywhere.

    I hope things are better, too, keep on drawiiing !!!!

    Hey. You're back! Nice sketches. Self portrait is definately my favourite in this update .

    As for the Katara sketch. Faust mentioned that she doesn't look asian but honestly to me the original character doesn't look asian anyway. She has that samurai pose when they lean forward ready to draw the sword so it's a big plus. The inking is also good. The pencil sketch however looks a better propably beacause of stronger and more clear face expression. The line thickness adds contrast the eyes and they draw a lot of attention while in the inked sketch it's all lost. The ink lines could be improved quickly in Photoshop/Painter so it's not a big problem.

    Cheers.

    Nice face sketches. I agree with the others that the samurai doesn't look too asian.

    Make a sketchbook happy, feed it a tip to improve!

    Only roughly a week since last update! Score

    IanE - Hey buddy! Hehe, yeah, I somehow manage Thanks for the tip regarding the texture, you have a good point, makes sense. I'll watch out for it next time!
    kelly x - Thanks girl!
    purb36 - Thanks so much for all your excellent colour advise! I didn't know Mr.Manley was about to release a DVD about colour theory, sounds like I need to put some dough aside for it Oh, and I organize my sb pages? Well, I admit I haven't put much thought into it, but thanks for noticing then!
    Pretty_Angel - Aw, thanks doll! :hug:
    JailHouseRock2 - Thank you, good to be back! And aw, I'm flattered I need to do more SPs!
    ~Faust~ - Thank you sooo much for the great crit, I absolutely needed that! I'm definitely gonna give this more thought the next time I try something radically new. I admit that I didn't plan that picture well enough (I inked it before deciding to go all 'trad japanese'), so that obviously shows. A lot. And thanks about the SP, you're too kind
    staticpen - Thanks a lot! And yep, you're so right, I often feel like I smell something burning when I'm concentrating a lot, hehe, my poor brain is often on fire!
    Clochette - Heya! And thanks for the crit! Yeah, I'm starting to like the sketch better myself after receiving all the pointers here! But that's a good thing, I like being critted, also brutally!
    Farvus - Hey Great tips, you make great sense. The whole deal about her being asian was really an afterthought, the character is originally more inuit, so it was my own twist later when colouring. But cool, thanks for the advise!
    MacTire - Thanks, I'm flattered you felt compelled to read my little thread through! Glad to hear you liked it
    Pigeonkill - Thanks for your input! Yep, looks like I'll definitely need to study more Asian people

    Aaaand on to the stuff. Mostly just some studies and sketches this time.

    First some leg studies, among other little stuff. The leg studies were drawn from issue #39 of ImagineFX, good stuff!

    And lastly, a half-arsed enviro. It's from a photo I took last summer when travelling around the country. I had fun doing the mountains, but the foreground proved too complicated for me :/ I guess I should stick to wee simpler things at first, but I def.wanna try doing this again. Really opened my eyes regarding colour.

    Hiya AsaB,
    It's great to see your continual studying of anatomy and structure and I can
    see it is paying off nicely=D The pastel look of your portraiture is very pleasing, and you're getting good at achieving a likeness. Your latest landscape looks pretty successful to me, in that you are thinking about laying down the big shapes of value and color. Keep it up.

    Sketchbook!! Please help me improve!

    Studies are coming along! The 3 portraits look great in construction regardless of if they match the actual person or not. The anatomy is there, except for KidApe's left shoulder (so the one on the right of the portrait) is coming out of his neck. :/ Hehe.

    Carry on :]

    Only the heart intrinsically noble can succeed...
