Very cool updates Danka. Really like your pencilwork. Would like to see some more work on the colors.
Please take the time to give me some constructive criticism in my Sketchbook
Thanx zeo-x clayman101 and Hilbruks !
I'll come back on my post to put some informations about the images (refs or not) as soon as possible! ;-)
And I'll try to post more colored ones!
Your girls are hot! Great stuff!
What a wonderfully classy sketchbook! Beautiful work, Danka. Thanks for sharing.
Five stars without a doubt : )
Man! great great lines. your pencil work is very strong and confident man.
On the digis, it seems to me that the confidence is a bit shaken eh? they are a bit too blurry. Judging by your strokes in the pencil realm Id say switch your digi brushes to something more rude and less airbrushy cos you can do it.
Love the brunette painting you did on page one.
Thanx all for the replies an the stars! ;-)
More pages from my book!
No refs for these pages
No refs for left pages. But I use a photo reference for Sayid Jarrah :-)

Just had an amusing look through your wonderful sketchbook, Danka. For a moment I almost thought, that I had found something to bellyache about, the - in comparison to the diversity of the other figures - rather "uniform" type of females you draw, but then I saw the fat woman... so I have no other chance, than to just express my admiration for your skills.
Thanks for taking the time to attach notes to your stuff about ref material. I feel a little guilty, I kind of meant 'in the future' and 'for the major works'. I didn't mean for you to go through everything and label it. Kudos for the effort, though, it made it much more interesting to look at your sketches and compare what came out of your head and what came from other sources.
amaaazzzing stuff!! all your drawings have such life and energy to them. it's inspring. for your non-ref stuff, how do you come up with all of that? i find it's very hard for me to put what i'm imagining down on paper. it seems you are so free in whatever you draw, like you just draw whatever you want and it comes out awesome. XD. any advice?
Great stuff in here man.
algenpfleger_ Thanks! I still use very much references! but thanx! ;-)
bandaidboy12_ Thanks! The secret is...practise! At least one hour every day...draw draw draw draw...the CA slogan!

awesome pencil sketches, alot of fun to look at!
Wow. You're lucky to be so competent as to give all that unreffed stuff the life and vibrancy it has. Very jealous of your skills and linework. 5 stars, and subscribing. Some very nice girls... uh, sketches you have here.
lots of awesome pencils, lovely!
