holy... wow dude. i'm so jealous right now~ you got to meet sir igor and chiu! what was it like? i'm sure it was an exhilarating experience!
looking back on a few of your older pages-- i can see improvements with your overall construction in drawing and the imagination is getting better and better! keep going man-- and thanks for your support at the sketchbook!
teapo : thanks man, i realy appreciate it ! Yeah, it was really amazing to see them drawing and painting live !
Jeremy Swan : thanks man, help is always welcome ^^
Well, thanks guys for your help, but i think i will put aside the zombie illo for a while, because seriously, this illustration would involve a lot of details, a crazy color harmony, etc, and i can see it so clearly on my mind, but i know i won't be able to put it down on my canvas as well as in my mind. I think my awareness of this world has improved, and i'm just aware of all these beautiful colors around me, and i really wanna be able to paint this beauty, so i'm gonna train hard, and will try to do some sketches in color on photoshop ^^ next update will be full of colors ^^
so for today, i'm showing you a still life i just finished, and 2 character designs
Fuck yes man thats the shit, so much improvement since the last time I saw you, I'am enjoying those character designs, however the poses seem a little awkward and forced, try looking at the mirror and see how your body forms those poses, I think its time we actually started up again being intense. Second year of UNI is pretty intense but I'm still keen not to have any sleep for the next 2 years, or the rest of my life i guess. Speak soon on msn.
Edit: Referring to the bottom pose.

thanks all for your support, i'll try to reply later individually ! It's been about a month that i didn't post, was running out of time between school, friends, etc, but i was missing posting some stuff, so here i am !
Here are some stuff done at school, the baby's cast we've done for the second time, on grey paper with black and white pencils ! A still life done with pastel, and a sketch done for the illustration class, from an old russian story, about an ogress willing to eat a little boy, we had to choose which scene we would illustrate ^^ Then, some personnal stuff, a post apo girl, the sketch of a fantasy character, i'll try to put some values and colors on this sketch when i'll have time, and the WIP of an illustration i started about a month ago, but didn't have time to work on ^^
As usual, crits and comments are welcome, and thanks for visiting my sketchbook !
jigje : Thanks my friend ! Yeah, this school is really great for learning foundations of drawing, painting, anatomy, etc ^^
Domaz : Thanks ^^ I'll try to not disapoint you !
Aryeh : Thanks man ! We take around 11-12 hours for a cast drawing ! Now we'll work exclusively with pastels on still life/cast drawing classes, will be fun !
witek : Thanks man !
John Silva : thanks man !
Jaytea : Hey honey, thanks for your support ^^
Black spot : Thanks a lot ^^ Yeah, sometimes my mum is cooking so well, i think she got a demon inside ^^ And to answer to your previous question, i don't think i deleted anything posted recently ... i hope it's not a bug or something like that !
Well guys, art school is taking me a lot of time ^^ I don't like to post only one picture, but i feel i need some help on this one . I worked again on the fantasy girl, but turned her to be like the guardian of the forest, i wanted to give her a wild look, mixing the design with some african tribes' stuff ! Right now i'm kinda stucked on the values and on the composition of my picture. I didn't worked on the background, but it doesn't matter ^^ I really find m values flat, everything is looking like plastic ( it's like she has garbages bags around the boobs .... ) anyway, any advice is appreciated !
Well, i don't like to make several posts in a row, but i forgot to upload this stuff ! It's a new version of the previous character that i was finding too simple ! i added a lot of stuff, trying to find a good mix between african and asian styles ! And some basic values putted on it ! ! I made these values before the values studies posted above, so it can only become better ^^
Hey man, so I promised you a crit, I guess i'll take your latest stuff, heh, nice start you got the shape
down pretty well and your values look good...however
theres something about the navel, I think its misplaced slightly to the right, it causes a
disconnect between top and bottom half of her body.
Hey man so I put a crit with in a crit, so you can... anyway nice studies in #625, god I love boobies um...
The top girl her stomach seem to get compleetly flat somehow around the navel again.
