    Daemien: The nerve of that guy 'Line' #2 ey. Not putting his sig. space to good use and linking to his sketchbook. Ugh, hello, that's what sigs are for. Pffft.
    Batman: My colour theory sucks. I just have too many coloured pieces that
    can't pop because of my values. It's just dumb right now. I know the basics like Red=passion, Blue=Day, Green=Shifty food the night before

    A couple of b/ws

    Bri Bri: Buahahahaha, thanks mate. Keep doing those experiments, as I want to see that rhythm and soul.

    I'll eventually get sick of doing scribbles and tackle that devil 'Values'

    Clarke's Dreams

    Childhood themed.
    nurraymjo: Thank you. I'm was trying to make a massive posting that'll keep me from feeling guilty about not putting stuff in it.
    This should hold my heart and soul for a good two weeks.

    (If anyone recognises the two anime characters @ pic 6, please notify. I want to know why I drew them, it must've been good. That's why I forgot about it. )

    Accept my apologise for the camera quality, which I quite like, but my scanner is really slow.
    Canon Lide 25. (Yes they still exist)

    Big Head

    There's a boulder head amongst us.
    I should really start using proper sketchbooks and not filthy scraps I pocket from bins while roaming the country sea side.
    I could probably just collage them together or make little tiny 2x2 frames from tooth picks.

    Like your b&ws and your perspectives. Liking also that you've got a lot of dynamic poses sketched in- I recommend www.posemaniacs.com for some anatomy and their 30 second pose program. Good Stuff. =)

    AmbientSounds: I'll do posemaniacs soon. I'm currently working the anatomy
    from top to bottom. I'm up to the ears.

    (Quick rough, but this pose haunts me. I'll figure it out. Eventually. Or I could just reference it.)

    Thank you for stopping by my sketchbook (F*** you ca.org for eating my posts)

    Interesting work, and by interesting I'm talking about a definite style you have established in your work.
    They say style is really about the mistake you consistently work, which I think should give you some food for thought, maybe in the long run it will be more beneficial to try to make things as realistic as possible, so that you can make better choices when you stylize.

    I also find it interesting that you are a prime example of the way a painter sketches, in contrast to the way a drawer would dry.
    Your best work is that in which you block in tonal areas, rather than describing the edges of plains with line.

    Sorry for the late reply. I've been smacked with the 'BUSY' the last few days, and for the next few as I see it.
    The remaining time spent reading up on art. Experimenting. (Farting)

    DStraX: Thanks mate, I'll be checking on you too.
    HerrleerzeichenS: I love those soldiers too, I just can't remember what got me in that mood to draw them.
    I can't get that feeling back. I've one in WIP (I'll post that some other time, once I get the feel of values) in the Critique. I hope you'll drop some input when you can.
    Hamsta: Realistic, I'm trying to find my way there. I'm trying to read the history of art, but nothings sticking through, I just want to illustrate.

    Which one's 'cause they all look the same to me. I don't see them in terms of technique, but just the result.
    (I should be more conscious to finding a style/workflow though. So far, I've just been making them with no thought).
    Glebz: Cheers mate. I check out your sketchbook too.

    I just ran across this LinRan on Light and Color, translated by paperX. [Much much appreciated paperX and LinRan]
    A good read for beginners/the lost/the noobs/punk ass peanuts! ( me )

    Having just read LinRan's Light and Color theory. These two feel so far
    already. I just want to drop kick these out of my mind.

    My first decent colour work in Photoshop, and any other for that matter.
    It was way off, but I'm still proud of myself [ ] Colours, who knew?
    And the last step by step ... I'll post the next ones on de blog. [They take up too much room]

    The last collage of sketches is a good example of the 2 different styles. The dark soldiers with the tank is the painter's way, while the face in the middle is the drawer's way.

    The two on the right combine both styles, but are closer to the painter, while the bottom left is both but closer to the drawing.

    There are different ways to get closer to realism, some might work for you while others might not. In my case, you won't see me holding a pencil in front of my eye and measuring proportions, I will however construct figures from tubes and blocks, and try to nail the negative spaces.

    (Roxette fan 4 ever)

    Hamsta: Thank you Hamsta for taking time to explaining. So basically , a painter blocks in, right? and a drawer (when dying, I mean drying) is lining?
    [I'm pretty sure that's what you meant] I'm so out of the art speak, sorry mate.
    [Please send over a pm if it's not correct to avoid me some more embarrassment.]

    3x30min studies after going through Lin Ran tute. [I'm still trying to understand it]
    the Saturday night was with no ref. (I think I should stick to refs for now)
    The 3 characters are in attempt to do how Edward Cherniga does his lines. [It's not even close. They're silhouettes. ]
    But I'm seeing colour now, so. I'm happy with my progress.

    I think it's the camera that added those textures. Completely un-intentional.
    Otherwise it's the cheap paper that I use that fade to yellow. Which I kind of like.

    I digs the blog. Cartoon characters feel, nice. [I'll check out your sketchbook]

    Gail Blitzy, please make good use of your signature space. Stop being a signature snob.
    And you still haven't checked that link? Ugh [What a mole. kidding kidding]

    The perspective/depth. I'm guessing it's the play on light and dark.
    The shadows are always opposite where the light is.
    [ Wait, which piece are you referring to? ] Well, either way, it still applies.

    Brother I thought I'd never find you. Where's the notes at?
    Cheat sheets? 3000 page essays? PM me the address when you finish uploading them.

    Grandmassa Mr. Spect: Can you please stop purposely mis-spelling 'There'
    Bad habits are easy to come by, and I have enough problems with spelling. Buahahaha.
    An E gang, sweet. I work alone though, like Clint Eastwood, but, if there's donuts with sprinkles on top involved, or
    sweets I've never seen before, then brother, my life is yours. Behehe.
