    good studies mate, i read you want to be more alround. when i see your work it looks that you have very much fun doing it.. i think you lean very much on your graphic style.. if you want to become more allround you should not be afraid to loose that style and try to draw more realistic... when you master that and get back to your style, it will be alot stronger...

    Hey there, thanks for your comment on my SB! You got a strong style, but as Teh Gosu says, don't be afraid to venture into realistic studies. It will really help your understanding of a lot of things and ultimately reinforce your style.

    Warhammer 40K

    I am back from holidays. Damn, Rome and Florence are amazing beautiful cities. Next time I will post a few drawing I made there (more realistic).
    But for now, here is a Warhammer 40K update. I never played the tabletop games (didn't have the money or strategic insight) but I read some books and they are really great fun. "In the Grim Dark future, there is only war"...sentence always makes me smile and chuckle.
    These are my imaginations of that universe, from oldest to newest (just finished the last one and wanted to share).
    Sorry Teh Gosu and Tom van der Linden, not really realistic. I started with that, until my holiday came and I went back to my old thing but I WILL pick it up again, going back to Loomis.
    Thanks and enjoy for now...
    Groetjes, Rene

    Here are two drawings I made during my holidays in Italy. I made some more, but after seeing them again, they are far from finished and being shown here.
    First two houses in Roman style, wanted to figure out the basics. Its painfully 2-dimensional.
    Second and third, a (realistic) drawing of a great sculpture, Hercules made by Giambologna, and found at the Piazza della Signoria (which is full of truly amazing and classical sculptures) and the picture I drew it from.

    Enjoy
    Groetjes, Rene

    Hell yes, go 40k, I love that stuff. You've got to pick up the Art of Warhammer 40'000 book sometime. It's good.

    I like the Rome statue sketch too. You're style is malleable!

    Wow, I love what you did to the head, but to be honest you "comicfied" (is that a word?) a bit to much. In the original picture we see him looking down, while in your picture it looks like he's looking towards us. Look harder, really try to draw what you see instead of what you think. The building sketch is also a nice study. Great!

    I can do reality I can

    @Phiq: WH40K artbook sounds good, I will have too look if I can find it in the neighborhood.
    @Marcnail: Thanks, I always enjoy your stuff.
    @Tom vd Linden: Thanks for the advise. I DO draw more what I think then to draw what I see. I will have to get used to look less to the paper. Next one is also a bit more "comicified" (its hard to lose it)

    Here another drawing from a picture. A selfportret.................................no just kidding. I'm not that ripped. To be like that I wouldn't have ANY time to draw (and I already don't have much.
    Looking back, my body is longer then the original. Gotta work more with shadows. Other crits are welcome.

    Enjoy.
    Groetjes, Rene

    I gotta learn to draw females. I'm not used do drawing round, soft shapes, so most women I draw look more like men.
    Also need to learn better to draw gestures. So here is what I did.
    And last a few quicksketches from persons in the cantina at work.

    Off to a good start with the females there Dromer! I have the same problem... damn soft curvy shapes... The way I have found to get around female figures is to nail the torso/waist/hips area as there's a lot of potential for dynamism there, and you can accentuate the female curves there easily too (waist, belly, etc... lots of beautiful flowing lines!). That tip may not work for all people though.

    It's been a loong while.....

    since I updated my sketchbook. A lot has been going on last year, I have been drawing but just too lazy to scan and upload them. I will try to change that.
    A week ago I joined a sketchmeeting which was a great way to become active again.
    Here are the results. My old scanner doesn't work on my new computer, so I had to make pictures, but you probably can see enough.
    Groetjes, Rene

    Thanks for your kind words, RBeek. I really should be doing more in this sketchbook. Seeing your sketchbook and those from other sketchmeeting-fellows inspires me to do more. Looking forward to draw some monkeys, bears and lions.

    Some Bridgman sketches....
