    Good start with the stylized figures. I think you can push your work farther by practicing your lines though- a lot of them are a bit too uniform. You'll give them much more life and character by working on contours- vary your line weight, figure out when the lines should be thickest and when they'll practically disappear.

    Thank you all for your comments. LeoKi: the arm, you got it! Actually I don't know what happened with that arm, as I mess a lot with layers. I start out nice and tidy then go all out of track..it may have been a hidden layer, or painted over. But the amazing thing is that I noticed only when I posted it here, just to show the low level of perspective we get when doing our own stuff. I might fix it in the future, but for the moment I'll leave it as a reminder of how people (I actually) can oversee obvious discrepancies...

    Chagan: you might be right, I actually use a lot of line weight variations on other kind of things done with other media (may it be vectors or simply black ink on white paper), basically because the tools I have allow me more to do so (here I'm stuck with one piece of paper and a sepia ink pen...ah, and white of course!). But it's not only for that. Anyway it's experiment time, so I can play around a bit.
    With the next sepia series posted here actually the first sketch implied more line weight variations, but it was complicated carrying it through with the above mentioned tools.

    the lie and the defeat

    thank you again all for your kind words! Anyway, taking the sepia series (or at least some of its stylistic approach) to some further colour/light experimentation. Slightly bigger pics here which I might put up in the finished section as well, but I thought as they are a result of a on-going study (with relative fb) which started at the beginning of this sketchbook they'd make sense first of all here

    "The Defeat" is a bit too angular for my tastes, although it is a well executed piece, I'm not sure if its erotic.... It might not even be that it's angular, it may be that the lighting seems too harsh. It might be nicer with some softer tones and better blending.

    "The Lie" is lovely, and segues in nicely with the Sepia series. It really feels like a natural follow on, in fact, like that's where they were progressing to. Still loving your work.

    Donalfall, I must say that that's the fb I love, not the "loving your work" part necessarly (although it's very kind of you, thank you), but the part in which you say what works for you, and most of all what doesn't. Which is the hardest part for me to get, and it's the main reason for which I started this sketchbook. Not much knowing if a piece is well executed techinically but more if it gets a reaction or just a "well, nicely done but who cares.."

    I reckon at any level one is it's the hardest thing to understand. We may realize if we've drawn something wrong, if an arm is too long, a head is too small, if eyes are out of axis etc., and we correct it. But there is more to that in drawing. So thanks.

    Yesterday I found myself frustrated (not only for the paid jobs which take ages to get actually paid), because of a piece which I kept re-doing, and messing up, and turning round, changing colours etc. And I realized I was overdoing it, just to prove to myself that I can do certain stuff as well. But that's not what I'm looking for.

    So here I'm taking a couple of steps back. Less is more (I hope). Balance is all.

    Thank you for the appreciation Justin Beckett and Byrd (and for the favourite add) !!

    In the near future I'll be concentrating on a series proposal, I'll post the pencils later. So here you go with some doodles, sketches, ideas, concepts etc. which for the moment are put on hold or abandoned. Some of it is veeeeeery loose, 20 sec max affairs...some more elaborate, but I just scanned them in and put them together, after all isn't this a sketchbook section, so why not scan my sketchbook (i.e. my little black books, which I should put in a pile, take a photo and use as avatar...hmm good idea..)

    Thank you Bill, glad you enjoy it...here's another concept (short story) on hold, on which I threw some colour (actually it had to be just SOME colour, but I got carried away...but 20/30 mins max)...it's about a lady who's found a way of hanging on to her lovers, by putting them in formaldehyde...

    Very nice. The presentation is excellent. Are you envisioning it as a big print or divided into cards or seperate pieces? "The Date" is probably the one that jumps out from the page as the most visually thrilling.

    It is obvious to the eye that the picture space is differently sized on each one, giving a different margin of white space around the pieces. To that end, i would personally be inclined to align the text with a common corner, so that the text is in the same place on each. Might be worth trying to see how it looks in comparison. My 2 cents.

    Thank you all!

    Donalfell: actually these are intended as seperate pieces, but there is so much serendipity in the whole project that putting them together like this I found they could work as a big print as well, and in that case your suggestion of aligning the titles would certainly make more sense. At the moment I'm working on some more, the whole process is a bit strange because it involves quick sketches that in the process suggest "a small story behind it", as the project involves a writer and a photographer as well.
    I'll probably start a dedicated thread about these in the finished section, with higher res for each. I must agree on "the date", it's the kind of idea (as theme, light, body expression etc.) I'd be happy to come up with more often.
    The sketchbook was started to find a direction, as you may notice I mess around with different styles, but I'm trying to find my unique path...

    Ban dai: ...which is exactly that. Try to cut down things to simplicity and effectiveness (the less is more path...which is harder than one might think)

    Zaorr: thank you, that's what I'm trying to pursue!

    Angry Filipino: glad to see you again! thank YOU for appreciating these!

    I really like the style and feel which you have developed. But some places I find lack knowledge of anatomy. Especially some arms. They look a little to bent to me, even though the style is pretty free. But lovely non the less! Just a little brainfart...

    Work hard, anything is possible. I know, I know, itís a very cheesy response but itís true. Hard work and dedication is the key to reach your dreams. -BjÝrn Hurri

    I loooove your stuff. Especially the red o, so red head in the tree.EDIT(Got stuck on the nails, Blonde sorry..., the red is kinda of an emotional amplifier there EDIT2: I mean shoes and lips)

    I think the arm comment might have been aimed at your "locked elbow" poses looks a little wonky.

    Females have a tendency for locked elbows or knees to pop back a little more than usual. It's maybe not something folk noticed or are used to seeing.

    Looks fine from here though.

    Dream inspiration. I like trees.

    Wonderful sketchbook to look through!

    I really adore "The Red Shoes"...the lovely thing is that scrolling down the page, you don't see the red shoes when you first see the top of the image, and then the hit of colour is a delicious surprise ^_^

    "The Defeat" I actually find a bit unsettling, which I think is because the *tiny* waist, etc, is all very stylized, which when combined with the more detailed rendering (ie. more realistic than the stylized lines) makes her seem a bit unwell. I love that you're trying out different style combinations though! ^_^ (actually this one is perhaps a good example of what Hive_minD mentioned too, as the bend in her arm is perhaps a bit rubbery)

    As donalfall mentioned, "The Date" looks like a really dynamic composition!

    "The Bodysearch" seems to be the only one in the series that hints at a more violent/disturbing scenario, which is a teensy bit jarring to me, not just from my own taste but also in relation to the series.

    Will definitely check back to see more of your lovely work! ^_^

    Zaorr an Geckochan, thank you for your comments, as I find them very helpful. I think you're right Geckochan about the defeat, as it took me a while to realise that adding more detailed rendering contrasts too much with the stylization of the pencils, it's like putting an good ingredient in a recipe that has nothing to do with it (like putting chocolate - good - on a pizza, yuck), and anyway it was going in the opposite direction of my research here (i.e. cutting things down to essentiality, as in the sepia series)
    As for "bodysearch", yeah it is a bit disturbing, but then again it's a way a) to put different slants to this stuff b) to see what works with you and what not (so thank you for telling me it doesn't...as I said, it's even more important than telling me what does) . Looking back at the "stories" (as I call them) I find that there is an underlying feeling of melancholy (which is not surprising), so I like experimenting with other themes.


    Here are three more of the series (small, the bigger versions are on my blogspot and soon in the finished section) , which range from outright "editorial", to very melancholic and more innuendo-slanted eroticism.
    Thanks again all of you for your comments, you can't imagine how helpful you are.
