You have such great line-confidence that it seriously scares me. The latest digital sketches feel so ethereal and evocative! Inspirational!
Such great work here. I love your drawings from life! You capture things really nicely. Also, that RABBIT. Holy shit, I love that picture. It makes me think of Albrecht Durer's study of a hare!
Why don't you design it with a background in mind from the start? If there's anything I've learned in my design class (and holy fuck, Lawrence Marvit is HARDCORE but the best man to learn this stuff from) it's that if you want to design a picture of figures with a bg, work with the bg from the beginning. (Or generally, ALWAYS think of the whole picture from the start. Not just with figures.) Don't just add it in after the figures. Think of the whole picture to make it one closed unit.Here's something I forgot to post. How is the composition on the first picture? I think background elements will either kill it or balance it.

im so sorry i dropped a bit of drool over your last post hope it doesnt upset you its just pure eye-candy post moaaaar! !
LtPlissken: Thanks mate. It's the area where I have most confidence and freedom (through limited medium if that makes any sense).
Bjulvar: Thank you. I do try.
Kjesta: Good to see you back, congrats on getting in the workshop. That is sound advice, it's exactly what I should be doing. I have rough Ideas for characters but they always lack surroundings.
lionheartGFX: Don't worry I can wipe it off.
I've been accepted as an exchange student to University College Falmouth Digital Animation course for the coming spring, we shall see how that turns out.
Here's some stuff, I'm very tired at the moment. I should be more professional about my approach, random doodling will get me nowhere.
Not sure where I will take the robed figure, the pose needs a rework.
I also took part in the presumably dead at birth Team Challenge:
Thanks for looking.
dat extra frog. Love it so much!

Mate i am here just to say that you have gone a long way!!! Lovely rendering, values drawing, sketching. Now lets keep up improving even further . Good luck with the university
That mad ape could confidently rip someones spine out.
With very less effort. Joyful wonderful moments can be
seen on your latest paintings and drawings.
Mila: Thanks man!
kingkostas: Kostas, always a pleasure mate. Life is getting easier bit by bit so let's rock.
LtPlissken: Indeed good sir, thanks for dropping by.
My PC broke so I am on a laptop now. Hopefully I can retrieve a few works in progress I had in it.
Small stuff, collab between me and KJK and a xenomorph doodle.
Thanks for looking.
Art inspiration in these pages! Especially the moleskine!
I would suggest to try out a full-spread drawing. Don't let that spine limit you.
Yooo mate !!!Heheh nice, some variety is needed. Maybe you can try to make even more stylized.Flat colors and colored outlines or whatever.
kingkostas: Thanks mate! Yeah I should be bolder in experimentation. Just playing with the lasso tool and soft brush.
Allright. I managed to retrieve some stuff from my broken PC and am now succesfully situated in the UK.
Here's what I'm working on. Loverboys get more than they bargained for, the Alien taken further (the white line is what I have in mind for the jaw) and some tests.
Thanks for looking.
