    Hey, nice character design! Clear lines with different weight, certainly talent here I was a little confused initially though, didn't figure out what exactly was going on in your picture, but it's a fun illustration nonetheless. Keep posting!

    some more old sketches

    Here are some more sketches I did sometime last year...I am working on some new ones, but since my job requires me to draw insanely everyday, I really have to rest my drawing arm at night...btw, what I draw at work isn't as much fun compared to drawing babes and critters. Will post some new ones soon!

    You definitely know how to draw. Kudos cause your stuff looks great. The Violet in the Troll pic is really throwing everything off though.

    Keep posting. I'd love to see more creative robots....for some reason I think you do crazy robots.

    I really like your style. Very confident and entertaining.

    What do you draw at work, if I may ask?

    color/tablet sketches

    Ped 454....lol...I really suck at anything that requires a clean line and lots of perspective...but I'll try to do some robots soon...just for yah!

    ARTHE XAVIER..I am a designer and am always busy making chinese factories rich! too bad they wont give any foreign designer royalties..unless youre white..which sucks for us non-caucasians..

    anyway..being from the pencil and paper generation, I wanted to play around some more with this wacom thing...heres some sketches I came up with..
    any advise on how to improve my strokes on this thing?(wacom)

    NOTE: All my digi sketches will be posted here cause I dont wanna bother people with my crappy attempts too much. These are just "sketches" I make myself do to familiarize myself with the things I need to improve.

    Wow, awesome work in here, your photo based drawings are fantastic, your pencilmanship (?) is great, I can see your colouring still needs some work but its also clear you will get there soon enough!

    You might, for a more natural, real brush stroke effect, use a hard edged brush with less blending, Also you might want to work on getting some more hard edges in your coloured work. Keep studying and drawing from yer head. Cya around.

    pencil area

    Thank you everyone for your replies, it just inspires me more to improve and hopefully to suck less at this

    anyway, while I'm practicing on digi stuff, I promised myself not to ignore pencils.
    So this part of my SB is for pencil works only.
    Here's the first...( crits are welcome of course)

    Hey, you're a photoshop user I presume.

    If you want to make your own brushes go into window-brushes and play around with them. for good painting I usually use a very hard airbrush that I customized to work with the pressure. Ideally something that changes opacity with pressure works well.

    When you paint I find it works really well if you have a basic lineart underneath before one starts to colour in. When colouring it works well when you start blocking off areas of shade @ 70% opacity and work your way up. Eveltually eliminating the lineart alltogether.

    But yeah, spazazo was right when he said hard brush. They work well in what you're trying to achieve. see ya

    Ped454...Thanks for the tip man! yeah, I am primarily teaching myself photoshop...
    I took Spazazo's advice and am currently experimenting with hard brushes and not relying on blending too much, its an improvement but I still need to practice some more before I post any more colored stuff...

    random doodling

    Hi Guys, I am still practicing my drawing and colors, but I just had to "release" some doodle "cravings" today. Drawing should be fun after all..

    Its Official...I suck at this...

    It is slowly dawning on me that I suck at this art thing..
    but I'm too stubborn to let that stop me..
    maybe one day I will actually be a decent artist, just gotta keep
    drawing I guess...

    P.S. I used to be better than this...but after 5 years of not drawing
    human figures and just doing toys...it's too depressing...

    Try not to do any more digital painting with a soft blurry brush like you've been using. I think it's been making it a lot harder for you to get the forms you want. It might be helpful for you to start off doing some paintings with reference, or even using a master painting as your source. It'll definitely help you improve.

    my pathetic hardbrush attempts

    ...the call of soft blending brushes is too hard to resist....
    must...use..hard..brushes..


    seriously, just wanted to practice painting and Santa was the first thing that
    popped up in my head. no sketch, no reference. which is why this isn't that good.

    Thanks for stopping by my SB.
    Damn man, your pencils skills are insane. And your color stuff is fast improving. The color Santa shows a huge improvement. Keep it up!
    BTW, super hot ladies in here.

    your human figure drawings look very very good, just like the others mentioned
    the girls look awesome
    i can't understand why you are complaining about your work so much, since it looks realy great
    keep up the good work
