Impressive pencils my friend, definitely digging it. Are you doing these from life, photo ref, imagination? Not much to critique here though, it's a good solid first post. Will keep an eye on this.
Here are some inks I did as well... These are 9x12 one paper with liquid acrylic and brush.
Sebbonaparte: Thank you very much, some of there is a mix of imagination and photo ref, mostly from photo refs, but for example the sheriff is from imagination.
That's what I call inking. Your moleskine spreads are works of art, not only the drawings are good they look really appealing as a composition. Consider yourself stalked (in a good CA way )
Oh wow, these are fantastic. My favorites are those pages up top, especially the second one. The hands holding the cigarette fit so naturally with the boy.
If you have the time, please stop by my sketchbook, Chock Full o'Nuts.
I would appreciate any advice or critiques.
Leonor: Thank you very much. Hopefully I can experiment more and come up with some different and more interesting compositions with time, I'm happy you've liked what I've posted thus far. I hope you like future updates, if I disappoint please don't hesitate to let me know!
DKHutchenson: You're comment's are encouraging, I'm happy you liked those hands, some of the people I showed the sketch to thought it was confusing. But that one is definitely my favorite page as well, predominately because of those hands.
Anyway here's a bit more of the same, I'll have some pencils again tommorow... I forgot to dump these and figured I probably should. Not a huge fan of the second, but I think I had the right idea, I plan on redoing it sometime soon.
Well hello, I am just in LOVE with your works here! You have a very good handle on the human head, and your inking skills are admirable. I could learn a few things from you! Expect to see me more in the future.
GunTrouver: Lol, Thank you for your encouragement, hopefully I can draw in a bit of a crowd sometime in the future. heh.
ohnojenny: Thank you, practice makes perfect. I still have a whole lot of improving to do!
Here's another ink.... Hope you guys like!

Again, awesome line work. Now is this one a picture from a reference or from your mind? Because I know earlier you mentioned you did a lot of photo references. Either way, great capturing of the wrinkles in the skin.
Youve got some really amazing work here! I really have no crit
Check out my sketchbook
nice work, keep it coming!
DeeStar: Thanks, I'll try!
marc_reed: There's gotta be somethin`! Get nit picky if you have too...
ohnojenny: That was from photo ref for the most part. I of course get creative after I feel like I have laid down the lines and base shape in pencil correctly but the base shapes are from reference. If you think it'd help at all I wouldn't mind posting the photo I used for that piece, let me know! I appreciate the comments btw.
Anyway here is some cute little emotional banter mixed with an SP... Hope you guys like. lol.
I'll have more soon!
mm your linework is so smooth and neat, I love it!
You also have a very good understanding of the human head (which i am so jealous of haha)
I have no crits as human anatomy is quite foreign to me, but i'd love to see you post some full body pictures. Maybe try drawing some women? idk, just some suggestions (8
keep it up~!
Haha, nah, just a word that you had a photo ref would be enough. I'd like to distinguish a bit.
Awesome self portrait. Love the expression. I've found that they can be quite fun to do. Did you do this with a mirror? :3
Bellachime: Haha, I didn't even notice really that I was only drawing men. I had just gone through a stint of lady drawing a while back, time to get on that once again... The next sketch will have a girl lol. As for studies I used to do them a bit more, but lately I've been feeling like just doing faces I'm sure it will change soon enough. Thank you for your comments!
Ohnojenny: SP's are alot of fun... I wish I did one everyday but alas I get too sidetracked. Yes this was done with a mirror... I just got a haircut so I decided to do it, my hair had previously been pony tail length lol. Anyway I improved the hands and chair in. I just drew my face then kept lifting my arms to get an idea of how the folds would look and then just took it from there really. The right hand was supposed to seem like it is lifting up or something, but I don't think it really came through to well.
aw man I just love love love the way you mix linework with rendered stuff in your pencil drawings. your inks are delightfully smooth too.
Anyway here's somethin` new.
So tell me, do moleskins lie flat such that you can seamlessly draw on the next page as you do? Crank out some more two-pagers! And awesome expression, although one eye is a tad longer than the other.
Some nice work here. Great faces and hands.
The inks are generally really nice, although in a couple of pics I think there are a few unnecessary lines that don't add to the overall 'description' of the faces - hard to explain.
Anyway, solid work and looking forward to seeing more.
my sketches here... http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=92997
www.sevans.co.nz , visit them or a puppy dies!
Flaskpost: No fuckin` way! What is up mang!? lol c9 represent for sure.... Thanks for the compliment.
Ohnojenny: Thanks for the little crit, I fixed it on the page, I think. Haven't updated the jpg though. Anyway yeah the moleskine lies pretty flat and I really like going over the center as a style in general.
SEVANS: Thanks! I will try and pay attention a bit more in the future as to what lines I'm laying down and what exactly they are expressing. I appreciate the comment.
Anyway I'll have more soon.
Here's more of the same, sorry about the scan I do it one page at a time then put it back together, the page got a bit folded in the scan and I didn't want to take the time to re scan... its too late. So I did the best with what I could. Hope it doesn't look to wonky...
Wow man that last one is really impressive, I'm loving your shading technique. Your heads have a lot of structure and form to them, how did you manage to learn that? Did you study anatomy, or is it just from a lot of drawing (which I'm sure you did anyway ).
My favorite one by far. And scanners can be mean like that, so pay no attention to it. It in no way takes away from the fact that you whip out awesome pages. Keep posting!
Really sweet stuff, I really dig your rendering skills.
Crit wise I say you could experiment more with your non-figure designs. There's starts of patterns and such, but I think more could be done. Apply your rendering skills to patterns.
Just looking at these sketches I see that your marks really work with the shapes on the figures, don't forget about the background.
Hope that made sense.
sebbonaparte: Thanks I appreciate the comments. You guys are good encouragement! Anyway I just draw alot, I've studied bridgman a bit on and off over the years... If I could suggest any book tho it would be the Ron Tiner book I think it's called figure drawing without a model. I'm not formally educated though by any means I'm actually a philosophy major believe it or not... but I draw every god damn day. That's important!
ohnojenny: Thanks... It's true what you said about scanners, they never do anything justice.
HugeHarHar: Thanks for the crit! I get what your saying... I'll try and spend more time on backgrounds, I just enjoy isolating the characters tbh. But yes I do need much more practice in that direction. I'll keep it in mind!
Anyway here's a bit looser page for today...Just havin` a bit o` fun...
thats a beautiful lil sketchbook ya got there yo.
ruuhkis and Jesus Food: Thanks guys!
I'm just posting these for fun.... They were the only two inks I left out of the earlier posts and I figured I'd post `em. I wasn't really that happy with either but so be it... They're about 3 weeks old now...
