    Hey you have some nice life drawing studies! Have much better proportion on them than you do on the drawings from your mind. Also, make sure you have proper balance, I felt like some of your drawings were going to fall over. I like the line on the last studies you did of an arm!

    Do you live in Vancouver? I was just there! That would be an amazing city to live and draw in

    Wow, man looking pretty good. Watch those proportions, though.

    Keep posting! Once a week, at least, no good reason not to

    Thanks guys!

    Care - thanks, I love anatomy. Just found a vintage copy of Grey's anatomy today for pennies, at the same used book store! I'm taking your advice today and trying to absorb the shape of the arm musculature into my brain, and examining for the first time how the shape of muscles changes. I love this stuff. That book of writings by Leonardo talks about this too - and how to use it artistically to show power and strength. I can't wait til I can have enough knowledge to use these concepts properly in art.

    Pamz1e - I agree, I must work on this balance thing more. Must study some people in motion soon...

    Misformikel - Cool! Yes I do live in Vancouver! What areas did you visit? I do love this city - ever since I moved here I go for long walks and even 1 year later my heart is still in my throat and my eyes wide when I see those breathtaking skyscrapers and the water and lush trees and mountains surrounding it all.. ahhhh..! Gives me visions of utopia. I always love walking around and imagining about how the city around me may look hundreds of years in the future - that's what my comic is going to be about if I get around to finishing it.

    miycko - Thanks dude - I am a little stuck on the comic right now as I can't figure out how to tell a story properly, so I'm searching for a book called "The Act of Creation" by Koestler and another called "The Writer's Journey". I might redo my thumbnails and plot a bit after I read those - though I've recently been told by a wise and experienced teacher not to try and make my magnum opus at the beginning, and do simpler works. We shall see what happens, I guess!

    BludHund - Thanks for visiting .. Yes sir. Once a week. I know I can do it!

    On that note, I read more by Leonardo saying to always keep a pad of paper with you, so I searched around and found a thin, tiny notebook that shall now reside permanently in my back pocket.

    I like your sketchy doodles in #114
    They're free and look easy.
    I'd like to see more of that.

    Hi there!

    Thought I'd share this album with you, it belongs to an artist from Singapore, Don Low, and I found work very inspiring! Check out the inks & watercolor work
    https://www.facebook.com/media/albums/?id=507600950

    And keep that sketchpad with you at all times! You never know when an idea pops up I should get my hands on that Da Vinci book too.

    Love the pen and ink work in post #114.

    Your teacher was right. Shouldn't let the fear of wanting to make an epic comic strip hold you back from the learning process It does help to make short 1 or 2 page comics, experiment with styles and ideas. Hope to see more updates!


    Hello! I'm trying to improve my artwork and I really could use your critique - S k e t c h b o o k

    #127 seems a good observation but its kinda clean, it looks like vector.
    Maybe draw the bones underneath that would help you to check the
    muscles.

    Thanks a lot for your comments.. I know there's been a 9 month gap since my last post, but I'm back! I walked into an art store recently and saw Copic markers on liquidation ridiculously cheap ($3 each! wtf!), so I bought a couple handfuls, and am really excited about using them, they're insanely fun to color/shade with, though I have much to learn in marker-fu.

    I'm also growing fascinated with ink, and so I'm almost exclusively drawing with pens now. Using Copic Black 0.03 and Sepia 0.05 multiliners.

    #131 is kick ass, you do a good job with them. I also really dig the
    perspective from the Quebec sketch. How have you done the last sketch,
    the scene on the street, dude with knife in his chest?!

    I am playing around with watercolors right now, maybe you have some cool
    advice for me/ video links etc !

    iven, thanks a lot dude! The pic of the stabbed wasteland creature was just an imagination doodle I did with a Wacom tablet, on a site called Artgrounds Sketcher. It's a really nice place to draw, you should check it out: http://www.artgrounds.com/sketcher/ - The Oasis rooms are anything-goes, and there are other artists sketching on the canvas so you can look at each other's works and get inspired. I always get a lot of creative stuff done just doodling there, because I can forget about studies and just draw whatever comes out. As for recommendations for coloring - hmm, I have a long ways to go (as you'll probably see from my psychedelic color scheme on the first portrait image in this post).. but I find that focusing on the value and shade instead of colors so much is a strong way to go. You can make just about anything look believable with the right values. I'll definitely share what I learn about colors once I actually get some experience. This guy's video was immensely helpful: http://artclick.tv/content/drawing-g...ls-adam-hughes

    So, I found an airbrush kit for my markers at the most random discount art/craft store that I randomly walked by one day. It had some Copic stuff lying around behind other cheap markers, and no price tags. So they gave me 2 air cans and the airbrush kit for $12 - the clerk just guess'timated. Score! Got my butt out of the store before they could rethink

    In other news, I found out that I totally suck at airbrushing. Nearly ruined the portrait because I didn't mask the face properly - but I somehow pulled through without absolutely destroying it. Next up I started doodling a random caveman comic page and thought it'd be cool to refine it. A friend told me he looked too modern and I should do some revisions. The next cavemen concepts are done with a Pentel pocket brush - possibly the coolest pen-like implement I own. It can lay down some awesome thick lines and dry brush effects if you move fast! It worked really well to portray the rough & raw hair of the primitive dudes. And finally, some super enjoyable pen drawings from this last weekend, done with... the Pilot V-pen! Friggen love that thing.

    If I were stuck on a desert island full of paper I could live a long and happy life with 3 tools: A Pilot V-pen, a Pentel pocket brush, and a 0.5 Staedtler pigment liner. Full range of black ink awesomeness and those 3 fit into a pocket easily.

    Looking forward to hearing anyone's thoughts!

    Pretty good stuff I really like the landscape and
    the portrait. Do you have sketches done from the
    landscape would love to see them ?!

    Thanks Iven. The landscapes are purely from imagination, I didn't do any sketches for them, just drew them directly with a pen. You should try some drawings with a pen, I seem to get more creative when I'm forced to lay down clean lines and put down a whole scene immediately without too much pre planning.

    Here is a painting I collaborated with a friend on, and a 25 min charcoal life drawing session just recently - haven't done any life drawing for a while!

    Here are some new ones! Trying to up the level of quality in my figures. Drawing hands and feet instead of avoiding them.

    Hey man, thanks for your suggestions on my sketchbook. I'm struggling hard with producing finished clean line work.

    Love your artwork especially the pen stuff (like in post 135). That's kind of where I'm trying to go.

    Hi freakmod, I have finally found the time to visit your sketchbook too since you left a comment in mine a few days ago. I don't have the experience to give you any advice so I can only admire the progress you've made over the years. I went through your whole sketchbook and it was an inspiring and encouraging journey to watch you get better and better. Great studies and beautiful pieces, good sir. Hats off. I'll subscribe to your thread to watch your further progress.

    Heyya Freakmod,

    It looks like you have some good stuff going here.
    You are developing a cool style, and your characters have a good look to them.

    Keep working on your anatomy studies, and keep applying them to creations from your mind.
    It is easy to just do what is comfortable with imagination drawings, but try to bring reference in when things start looking mushy or incorrect.

    Thanks again for stopping by my sketchbook, keep posting here, and keep up the good work.

    Thanks a lot guys, your comments keep me going!

    npg - Your stuff is looking great man, I'll drop you a comment on your SB.

    frostherz - Thanks man, it just takes practice and loving drawing. I'm honored to have inspired you. I remember mindcandyman and other guys' sketchbooks years ago, they showed me that drawing was something that could be learned, and I'm so glad to be taking the journey. Every time I open my sketchbook it's the best entertainment I could dream of. Documenting things I see in small pocket sketchbooks is also way more fun and permanent than taking photos. I can't wait to start imagining new worlds when my skills are better rounded.

    greyskill - Good advice. I sometimes lapse into pure imaginative drawing, but I'm hitting the references again to try and level up my knowledge of clothing, hair, and face structure.

    So I've decided to study the face a bit. I'm going to be doing more faces, both from reference and imagination. I took a conceptart course where Jason Manley recommended drawing 100's of faces. Now's as good a time as ever to begin. Here are some 25 min life drawings of a male model, a couple of women's faces from reference, and some imagination drawings.

    Hi Witek, nice sketchbook you have here. Can see you have improved a lot especially from the last year or so. The lastest group of drawings are excellent. I've not got a clue about airbrushing, but that stylized portrait looks really cool, nice job. Keep it up!
    Oh ye I also like Roberts pet bee from near the beginning.

    Thanks a lot BillW I'll try to get even more variety in, feel like I've been drawing too many people lately.

    Bri in the sky, thank you! The airbrush is actually just a little air can that lets you put a felt marker inside (Copic) and when you push a button it sprays the ink out. It's really cool, I have to find another store that will sell me heavily discounted air cans for it like the place in my old city. And the pet bee, yes hahaha it was real

    So... My cousin called me today and asked me to draw an Owlephant.. oh man, how could I resist?

    I decided to re-draw the tree I drew 5 years ago back at the start of this sketchbook.

    The tree grew a bit - I couldn't see the trunk anymore. It was an interesting experience - I vividly remember drawing that tree back then, and struggling to render the shapes. Now with a bit of drawing mileage behind my belt, I was able to see the form of the tree much easier and render out the complex shape.

    Thought I'd try my take on the Joker. Second one is a digital sketch / quick coloring.
