hey man its been a while i really like ur latest environment piece niice bra, gettin better over here
Hi there! Your sketchbook is pretty enjoyable when pairing the art with your sense of humour ahha. I also see quite a bit of improvement dashed throughout the sb...
Hrmm about advice, I noticed that although your digital skills have improved drastically, your pencils are still averaging at the same skill level as years ago? So maybe you could work on cleaning them up and thinking about the economy of line plus more confidence in them ( all that wonderful joy )to get them to the same level of your digital art. Honestly that is only aesthetic though, if your pencils are serving the purpose you set it out to do ( like learning anatomy, form, etc ) then I suppose it's not tooooooo big of a deal. Keep up the nice work
Oh man I love the witch house. I love the way you incorporate textures in your paintings. It has a great sinister mood but still pleasing somehow.
I wanna know how your presentation went! that sounds like a fun story. haha
A bit late for this, but happy new year. May you have a wonderful year ahead and draw tons of ladies! Cheers.
sense of purpose
two words - still life. i think you have reached at point were (stagnating is the bad/wrong word) progress is slowing down, so again, even for myself still lifes would help.
I like the haunted house very much, but again you need to work out what you want the viewer to focus on. The trees framing it are very sharp, which would work if the house was just a silhouette, or they need to be toned down to bring the house more into focus. I know you can rock this.
HOLY CRAP PLISSKEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!
has it really been so long since I have been in here??! you have grown into an entirely new artist. I am very impressed with how far you have come! amazing new paintings lately! very nice textures and dimension! keep it going buddy! nothing is holding you back now!
I like when things keep on swinging in a positive manner, and I like everything that
is looking nice and hot. I am happy that you visited, even if it was your first time, I hope
it will not be the last. Thank you for the encouraging words.
I am glad you like the helmet, but itís not just a helmet itís also an alien head inside of it,
thank you for being so nice to come here over and over again and for supporting me.
I hope that you are doing well in your life, found what you have been looking for,
love and joy especially. We all take some times off from art and I think that itís
totally all right, thank you for helping me to get back on track.
Hindu saint story is good as it gets, and it relates to our everyday lives, when two people
are angry at each other their heart distance a lot, could not been said better. The distance
can become so great, that you will not find the path to return, that sounds scary, and
thatís why we should live in love and enjoy every piece of our lives. I am glad that
your situation calmed a bit, you are a true motivator and a good fellow, thank you
for everything, I wish you also all the best.
Thank you mate, Christmas and New Year went down pretty calm and monochromatic,
which is good of course. There were happiness and joy all around, I hope that you also
had all the best around New Year. Thank you for appearing and for helping me all the time.
I think that we should definitely continue with our tasks this year and I would recommend
that we achieve even higher goals than we did last year. With your brilliance and persistence
all together we can do miracles, thank you for being a strong motivational force for such a long time.
A mental support is what you gave and that is for sure, you make me happy if you say
that I motivate other people. That motivates me and it motivates other, and it creates a
magical circle which will soon come to a closure. I am happy that you like the forest
environment, it has some perspective issues you are right, sorry I will try to pay attention
to those details also next time. Thank you for writing such a detailed and great reply, you
should keep on sharing feedbacks in the community cause you are good at it.
Hope that you will visit again, till our next meeting, I wish you all the best.
Itís been a while you are right, sometimes we makes too many gaps between the
shacks. Hope that you are doing great, thank you for the visit and for the support.
Hey there whatís up, I am happy that you visited my sketchbook. My pencils stopped
evolving, I am sad about that, but the interesting part is that I enjoy drawing more than
painting digitally. Iíve implemented more time into digital cause of the simple reason,
they are paying for my digital work, and they donít pay for my traditional skills, so I need
money badly, and thatís what got me into freelancing and all that. Still I would like to
evolve my drawings skills more, I hope that I will manage to do that in the future, I
really trust in myself and I hope that I will succeed, thank you very much for your
kindness, your act to show up and to help me, please visit again if possible.
Iíve learned that photo manipulation and implementing textures as much as you
can are big time savers and an effective way to make your paintings look more
realistic and commercial. In the end everything comes down to the question, do
you want to do art for yourself or to be sold. Wish you all the best in this year,
hope that you will do a lot of great paintings and that you will have some
fantastic job opportunities.
I donít like to do still lives, they are boring, and I donít like to do master studies,
they are boring also. Life is too short I guess, I want to draw and paint whatís fun
for me and whatís pays good. Maybe when I will have more free time, maybe I
will do some stills, maybe. I donít know how will I manage to pull that off, but
I will force myself I guess. Thank you for the advice and for being so good
to visit and to reply.
Focal point problem, I realized it now, I wanted everything to look sharp and
interesting on the painting, well not really the smartest choice, compositional
vise bad. I will do better next time Mrs. Spot I hope. Thank you for the help.
I havenít really grown into a new artist, but I tried to improve as much as I could,
still pretty modest evolution, I hope that this year we will manage to climb even higher.
Thank you for once again for the brushes and thank you for helping me out all the time.
Merry Christmas everyone!!!!
Long time no see. Had to get a better job. Sorry for beeing away so long.
I am really impressed! I wonder where your journey of learning to see would lead you to. I really appreciate that there are in the end some artists like you, who just bring their thoughts to reality, not stopped by some environment which thinks, the artist should do this or do that or try this or try that to be succesful.
Your results show the proof: If someone really wants to achieve a specific goal and takes the first steps by just doing it, he'll achieve it. No matter what others say. After that these others just watch your success and some of them suddenly change their mind. The funny thing: They try to explain why you've achieved your goals afterwards.
Anyway: Keep on going. Just draw it.
hmm. I think you went too far with the rendering though, plissken. and the colors are sooo bright. it hurts my eyes. isnt something like this better ( I just toned down the contrast and colors in unimportant areas)
Hey there, I am happy you like the last painting,
thank you for the kind words.
Itís pretty intense, that street war went down pretty roughly,
and the rebels got punished a bit. Thank you for visiting my friend.
Where have you been, long time no see buddy, hope everything is all right.
Well, my approach is pretty weird toward some subjects, and as you said sometimes
I just want to draw and to paint what I have imagined, something that came
to my mind as a vision, without getting too much into technical
details, rules and modern world instructions. Sometimes I just want to enjoy my work, just
want to have fun doing art without any pressures on me, and these are the results. I was not
thinking too much about how will people going to react to this piece, I just painted what I felt
that I should paint. After all, 4 years ago when I did that pencil drawings I had a vision that
I will have digital skills some day to represent the same piece in a more realistic and more
attractive digital fashion, and I think that I have definitely achieved my goal. That is why I am so
satisfied with this painting. You have a true and nice way with words, you see things differently,
and I like when you share your opinion and thoughts with us. Thank you for being so kind to
visit and for taking the time to help me to stay motivated. Hope you will share some art
soon, and till our next meeting take care and always stay true and honest.
Hmmm, you are right, I could have dimmed down a bit those corners, not
as much as you did, but I could have go more darker with the non-focal points.
Was not sure about the colors, are they over saturated or not, every display shows
it differently, on my home computer I was pretty much satisfied with the results.
In the end, this piece is finished, and will go down in history as my first finished
in this year, no matter how ugly and dark it is. Thank you for taking the time
to help me improve all the time. Cheers.
Merry Christmas everyone!
its not ugly pliss, its just soo bright. it could be my screen. maybe on yours my version looks too dark. ah, and maybe I did push back a little too much. anyway, your welcome, and love the cars. I only just notice, they are drawn soo much like the torso's. so cool!

You and only you, with your own sincere self-discipline, and effort, can make yourself an artist.
your going strong again pliss. I liked poor mr splinter. and the apes! also, what you do with perspective. wonking it like that. you might want to practice some good-old fashioned straight perspective objects. what you do is usually working, but sometimes it looses believablilty and becomes flat. like in some of those bent glasses. the gates worked fine. they look possible, but wierd.
also, I just noticed the other day, the thanks button is back! it happened, I think around the time of the double posts. so I guess that is why!
Your skills has grown a lot again! I like your last painting and all the tries on lights!
Nice sketch updates sir. I got a kick out of the Splinter pig one lol.

Cool updates, especially the pigs and vases/cups Keep drawing!
Splinter got fed up, he has been used and abused by his own government, and now
he gives not a damn. Train more perspective, got it, thank you for the help motivation
and for the advices. The thanks button is back, still a bit buggy but they serve
us well to discharge our hyper extended dark energy.
Welcome back man, thank you for the visit, I hope
you are working on some nasty erotic comic right now...
I happy you like them sketches, I am honored for such a great
writer and artist to visit my sketchbook. Cheers.
Thank you for the words of motivation, you take care,
and create more wonderful art, I was really surprised with
your improvements with the last visit in your sketchbook.
Vases and Cups were my middle name in highscool, thatís why I do them so good.
Thank you very much for being so good and for visiting.
I am glad you are still sketching, I should do it too, faces are getting better, for arms I always try to find some rhythmic lines you can try it too. I hope you are having good time and don't stop
Hey there!! I see you're improving a lot. I loved those apes a few posts ago I think however that while you do great male faces, your females look kinda creepy sometimes. Here's some guidelines to help you out with that!
Shoulder to the wheel, my friend!
My sketchbook - Harsh critique always welcome!
