So you call my stuff awesome? Then what shall I call yours?.. phenomenal
Seriously, you have so beautiful colors that the subject of the pictures is only secondary. Although the lines aren't any less awesome
Just on the anatomy, there needs to be some work done. But ohterwise PHENOMENAL! I'm subscribing!
Autumnal Dream, thanks I was an exchange student in USA so the exhibitions are nothing of true importance. xD
lilnebo, thank you I appreciate that very much! Hmm, I dunno if I have any extra tips... you're doing so great already! But I'll check back and watch your progress!
I've been drawing/painting seriously since I'm 13 or so, so you're quite right and I've loved doing it even before that, all the time.
Kurjuus, thanks! *blushes* But... oh the anatomy of doom! Dx Must get life drawing class. xD
Today's worth of sketching on paper (after Bridgman and magazines)
And a hottie! (about 1h in PS)

Thanks for stopping by! Looking at your latest work, your anatomy still seems off on some of the subjects, especially the heads/faces. Your anatomy studies on pen/paper seem fine though. That what strikes me as strange, on the paintings you do without reference, it doesn't seem that you properly 'constructed' the underlying anatomy before you filled in the colors and started rendering. Trace out the outlines of the figures in your paintings to figure out the hickies - they still don't match up with the quality of your linework. As usual, I'm fond of your wonderful use of colors, but keep working on the other aspects of your art! Once you have a solid grasp of anatomy it can only get better.
Hey, you have the makings of a pro, mainly because you're determined. Nice collection of studies and you're photoshop stuff is really quite something, I agree with others about refining your anatomy etc, but visually to me you're doing all the right things. I want to see more =)
Farsh, thank you! hmm, constructing, I need to spend more time on that o.o
Danyal, thank you much appreciated!
Baka, you're welcome xD
RandAlThor, I'm no expert on balls xD you may be right ö__ö Thank you!
Today I started the day with some wannabe calligraphy because it's a) lots of fun, b) difficult and c) I still have so much Japanese paper around here that needs to be used up.
(that's the name of my favorite mangaka. the calligraphy is pretty much fail because the kanjis' proportions are a mess)
The above two are old poems.
Drawn after an ukiyo-e painting, using a copic marker (brush nib).
I TOTALLY dig ukiyo-e, and I think it's even great for practicing because it forces you to exactly think about where you place what line and errors won't be forgiven, plus you need to maintain a flowy and elegant line quality. It's not as easy as it looks.
And another boy:
Hey, at least the men I paint do look like men, hm? xD

Now i feel bad for not censoring my stuff...
Its great to look at your sketchbook, a real pleasure to see your studies and drawings. You draw and practice so much that you turned into an inspiration, looking at your stuff makes me want to draw.
And, while i prefer the ladies, its pretty nice to see someone drawing boys too. Its funny that most people, even ladies, end up always drawing tons of naked females and almost no males. Good to see someone doing something different.
So, keep it up. I love your work and your sketchbook, its a real pleasure to look at your stuff...
Hope to see more from you soon! Cheers!
GREAT PROGRESS. maybe u don't reconize the new name. Sebastian_h = sebastianrenaissance from a while ago. however your'e realy muchbetter. and you were al ready. but maybe you want to look at my small schetchbook to comment? realy like your wor. just like the great painters. poussin. look at the dutch painters sometime too. johannes vermeer!! i would like to see how you will Interpretat that style that i think is kind like yours. still loving your work.
by the way... euhm... the "things" at your naked man paintigs are a bit... how do you say it without making a fool out of my self . well... they are a bit big. to big. i mean it looks more like porn. at most paintings, and deffenetly in the way they are posing, the naked man arent realy "exited". their faces are looking like they are thinking about something like their place in the universe but wen you look down you see that they are thinking about their favorit website. just saying. wow i feel like a moron. did nobody said this before.

yes, youre proberly right. but so big! it kind of makes me feel very... eh... small. and no not that i arent't ok with my self. your proportions are very good but at that part you could use some more studies (not that u will mind).
but realy just try sometimes i think your work is very nice but i think evryone is a bit distracted by his "wee wee" nice name btw. mayby in a bit less exited condition your man will even look more manly. now the just look like some teenagers with a... eh.. big WEE WEE. look at something like David from mischelangelo he is naked and you can see that it is a man but his wee wee doesn't distract you from his thinking look and your fist guess isn't that he's thinking about his girlfriend. is it? actually crasy that i'm talking about a guys penis for so long. "keep it short" is a good tip for both of us.
ps: like the rest of it very much.
we of the other 50% of the worlds population has a better excuse than you girls. the secrest is lots of Testosterone and i think, as carbono said more naked woman are beining drawn, that naked woman keep there style and beaty much more. it also have something mysterieus i think, a beutyful naked woman in the woods

girls have hormones too
anyways, I understand you and some others don't like to look at penis... and I'm adding the censoring because I understand that. Other people do like wee-wee, though. It's all a matter of taste. next time I draw a naked guy you know which link not to click.
and of course I'll keep drawing pretty ladies as well!
shamandalie, thanks I would love to see some naked guys drawn by you!
A new painting I finished recently. I'm not sure about the level of finished-ness (I guess it could use more refining here and there), but I'm done working on it.
Hi! First time visitor to your Sb, very nice stuff you have in here...
The last update looks darn good. for some reason though, I like the sketch
of this painting that you posted earlier..
I guess I like the face of the lady in the sketch..
But overall, really really good stuff.
Thanks for sharing!
I SWEAR ON THE GRAVES OF ALL THE TALENTED FILIPINO ARTISTS WHO HAVE GONE BEFORE ME, THE FILIPINO ART LEGACY WILL CONTINUE!
Whoa! That new line drawing is a huge improvement, thats what I meant by good construction. Small things to hammer out before you start blocking it out - the foreshortening of the hand on the right does't look right yet. Could be the sleeve. The face is also slightly skewed to the right, but nothing you won't be able to fix. It would be fun though, if you rendered the mole rat like he is now.
You might want to use more rich brown/earth tones in your palette though, its looking really gaudy right now. Can't wait to see the painting.
i have bin away some time. you must do what you think is right. like the painting with the naked mole rat and the lady. i think te sene will be much more dramatic with stronger contrasts. de background more darker and te licht more brighter. Just sugesting
