Yo man, what’s up, yes I am pretty much ok thank you for asking, trying to
stay in shape and to do my daily drawings and paintings. Always great
to see you here, thank you for the motivational push.
I am glad that you like the ‘Forest Witch’ painting, I want to thank you for the
advice, I will try to do the box drawing and perspective exercises, you are right
those things help a lot to improve the overall understanding of shapes and
certain objects. I like to mix things like that up with my imagination, I always
keep surprising myself. Thank you for the visit and for the support.
I like to listen to some of his things, Manson is the man, I don’t like all the
songs and albums, but some of them are my real favorites. I feel great if you
like some of my paintings and drawings, I truly appreciate your presence
and your kind words. Cheers.
in post # 2573 it seems that you might be interested in some transformation creatures. do you know the movies "splice" (2009) and "prometheus" (last year)? you'll find some very interesting creatures there which use the human body as a host. "species" could also be a choice but the first two recommened ones are more creative in the growing process of the human animals.
I did watch “Splice” only partially it seemed pretty interesting. I’ve watched “Prometheus”
last year, it was a very cool and fun movie to me, cause I always liked the Alien franchise,
and anything connected to the story is a great thing to me. Even if the critics was so harsh
about this movie, I liked it and I would watch it again maybe. That main female character
was hot enough. It’s a very interesting thing, but I’ve started to work on some of my
older paintings, re-creating it in a different fashion, it will be a creature busting out from
her chest/abdominal area. Will I ever finish it, I hope, whenever it happens I will post
it here. Will be brutal. I want to thank you for encouraging me and supporting me
constantly, means much to me.
I want to add this to my portfolio, I want to make my portfolio to
look professional and attractive enough. Want to thank everyone who
comes here and view my art, support me, please help me in the future,
cause some hard times will be upon us.
oh my! that's beautiful pliss!
tiy have to change the angle of the pedestal though.I think the horizon might even be a little under her feet, so you wouldn't even see the top of that log.
SKETCHBOOK - my website - facebook company page
ooh yeah; did you know I'm a certified art-teacher? that's right. everything arty I say has been endorsed by the state of the Netherlands! (they'll be sorry soon)
Only thing I can suggest is maybe more value studies in the future? Just to solidify and improve your process for you next great piece :3 I looked at the last 3 pages and saw a lot of line stuff, not that it's bad or anything, just trying to think of a suggestion and such.
That's about it, keep at it!
My observational skills may be great but I said nothing about my drawing skills
go back and look at your work from just last year
and now look.
something has bitten you on the ass and forced your hand. The quality of that last piece cannot be denied
My favorite of all your works
lower the opacity and flow to 10 to get the tones extra smooth at the end ( soft round big brush) I think that may make it even more polished.
but what do I know?
what the f***? Must have been another artist. Impossible progress, especially the face.
Thumbs up. There was a big step forward... thanks for sharing the journey here. That'll give hope to everyone who thinks, it must be a long timeframe. You proved that big steps can be achieved in a short period.
Holy shit balls man!! That last painting is amazing! Loving the wings and how you painted her body
Thanks for the constant support and looking forward to seeing more from you. Im hoping i can start to get on here more often soon, been struggling lately with drawing and painting. Still pushing through, i always here its consistency that will lead to success
Just some health problems,
I suppose everyone has
something that limits them to do what they really like and
love to do, so it’s just a struggle to overcome.
I honestly think that I will be back pretty soon.
Thank you everyone for the great support and for letting me know that
you didn’t forgot about me so quickly.
I will reply individually,
visit back sketchbooks and get back
to art, as soon as I get better, but now I just need some time off.
Thank you once more everyone for
coming here and making things to look better.
Sorry to hear about your health problems man :/. Looking forward to your next sweet updates!
That angle of envy turned out amazing!
Progress shots are always neat too, they help people that are still very much in the beginning learning stages out a ton. It's easy to get very unmotivated when all you see is finished work of professional artists, the progress shots really help to break that. And studying them shows a lot about the artists progress . Sometimes it's easy to forget the journey that the artists take and just focus on the end results.
Sorry to hear about the health problems
I wanted to share this.
I was feeling really discouraged lately than i looked through my sketchbook and found this quote from you.
"That work environment that you’ve posted photos of, your room is a killer, makes
easily a reindeer to smile and to hide. It’s obvious that you are dedicated to your art mission
now, there are no mistakes, nothing can go wrong, you are focused, clear minded and ready
for every challenge. I think that your art quality just got to another level and that your
improvements are visible from a far distance. All those inspirational pictures on the wall,
can make your dreams to carve even stronger in the shower washed rain melted good old
mountain rocks. A brand new approach from all around you are a king ace behind the spades.
The professional approach toward perspective, mechanical and vehicle designs is just too
much for us mortals, you can achieve the unachievable. You know that you should keep
up like this, you should never surrender, your cover will never got blown away, and
the meteor shower is nothing compared to your hard core skills, so just keep on
slipping under the golden rugged carpet."
I cant tell you how much comments like that mean, it really got me motivated to work harder and to keep pushing it to the never ending goal of mine. I feel that no matter what if we just keep pushing toward our goals in life that we will inevitably arrive there someday. Hope you feel better and cant wait to see more works from you!
Long time no see. I have been busy as you can see from my blog. Nevermind, I hope you are doing alright (of course I hopw because you are the only visitor and commenter of my SB thats why hahaha)
I see big improvements. However, I would like to see those lines getting sharper and more confident.
Keep up teh good work!
By the way This site has become cumbersome with all the extra things they added. Uploading is harder, takes more time and eventually takes your desire away, I cannot upload multiple files on a one go but have to do that one by one. I find it difficult to search for things here. Checking friends threads is harder, everything became so difficult to find. It is not like before. I think I will post occasionally but not too often. Anyway. Good luck with your work!
That last painting is just hot! I can clearly see the improvement, great job man! This might sound weird but I feel proud for you
I hope you get well soon, I'm sorry to hear you haven't been feeling well.
