    hey man, nice to be back here ^^The COW is looking good man, nice start!
    Only crit I can give is that I think you should wait another iteration before going into the skin-tones and definitions with full control. Let the piece inspire you for a little longer o_O

    The last piece is looking really interesting, keep at it ^^

    Cheers

    Thanks Buckster. Yea I actually followed your advice and re-did the entire thing. I still don't really know what I'm doing when I'm colouring.. heh.

    More cow, I didnt have internet at the time the finals closed, so.. no submission for me that time...

    and a dsg1398 - Magician whilst battling the monster, casts the wrong spell ~2 hours - proportions all wrong and stuff.. but heck, was fun

    hehe, I love the shadow on the groun in the COW piece man, gives the piece a sense of urgency ^^

    Concerning the colouring, look at what you consider to be great artists and study them. What makes their art pop? how do they create focus?
    Study the basics (can never get enough of that o_O)

    Keep sharing man.

    The reason for not posting these until now is because of not wanting them to be stolen. Made this piece for a Diablo fan-art contest.
    Anything goes aslong as there's a sword in the picture.. so I decided on making King Leoric, a boss from Diablo 1.
    ~ 12 hours over 3 days.

    enjoy.

    wow your sb really impressed me
    you do a very good job on choosing the base colours and creating a dramatic atmosphere, though sometimes when you go on polishing some pieces loose a bit of their initial looseness... dunno if thats bad or something just realised it while looking at your stuff

    however, I like your sb very very much and will watch your way from now on

    Dude thanks for popping by over my sketchbook, I thought I'll check out yours in return. Firstly dude, your imagination is just F'ing astonishing seriously some of the characterisation and ideas here blew me away, I love it, your imagination is by miles your strongest skill at the moment. Secondly, you use of colours is pretty dope too. Only problems im seeing is anatomy, for instance theres some pieces which are great, but severely leveled by major anatomy issues, so all I can suggest is keep with the pencil studies, and you'll be ace!

    Keep drawing bro!

    I love your use of color, it's something I've been trying to work on myself. I agree with the previous comment, a healthy imagination will take you far.

    Also, maybe it's just me, but it seems like you like the initial stages of drawing more than finishing up. I actually prefer your sketchier stuff to the finals, it seems to have more energy.

    Big Update

    Lilou thank you for your kind words... and I agree with you on the looseness.. don't know why. Strange things tend to happen when I concentrate too much

    Starf1sh Thanks a ton! very encouraging words.. and I'm going to do something about the anatomy. Going to take Croquis courses from this week forward.. Which I hope will be sweet (sweet because I get to learn.. not because.. you know..)

    Yamino Thanks! I havn't really been thinking about it until you took it up. My conclusion is that, when I sketch I don't try to think. I just follow some invisible line. I like to work fast when I sketch and just really.. live the idea. And then.. when it comes down to rendering. I get stuck... Because then I have to start thinking, which colours, what kind of values. etc. Somedays it's just soo frustrating cause I can't seem to draw at all.. and other days, It's as easy as ever.. I hope practice will enable me to adapt the same loose flow to my rendering.

    Lotet Thanks man!


    phew.. As mentioned above, I'm gonna start taking Croquis courses each week. Basically it's nude lifedrawing with a model. But instead of having the model stand still for a long time in the same pose, it's more movement, many different poses, each one for only a short time... so expect some nudes every week from now on

    Also a bit frustrated about painting. I don't know what I'm doing.. and I see so many great pictures, and I can't figure out how they do it.. it's like.. damnit.

    As for this weeks updates.. (A3 paper) Face studies.. world's crappiest self portraits that don't look like me at all.. C.O.W - which is giving me hell.. trying to re-figure out how I made my other c.o.w's... and Moleskine action -lot's of creature concept's.

    That is one awesome SB Thanks for the comment back there in my own, I'm catching up now

    Your digitals just about blow me away! It's so nice seeing so many WIPs, your method is really fun and helpful to follow through. I see creature design is your forte Something I'd like to strengthen myself, so seeing your awesome beasts is an inspiration. Keep up the great work, man, see you around!

    Man Made God thanks man! Moar inc

    AsaB thank you very much I like saving my process.. because I don't have any solid flow, and easily forget how I did .. so they're reminders to.. "this is how you have done it, now do it again loser!"

    Sorry for not updating in ages.. have had some 'bad' days.. not really been in the mood (it sounds so lame - but it happens). Anyway.. I promised some nudes.. not so good - I'm learning .. and some DSG's.. 1.5 ~2 hours each (sketch - 30-40 minutes). Finnished piece based on the topic 'Scarecrow' and a wip called "Savage Beast".

    cheers.

    Dude, really digging your concepts here. The creatures are looking great and those pencils are nice. Your painted pieces have a good textures to them but the colors can improve more. I will try avoiding pure blacks whenever you can and probably do some studies to improve in using colors. It is a tough subject but you will improve with those and bring your great creatures to life. Keep it up!

    wow you have so much potential!!! I totally envy you!! your lines are so cool!!! specially on those creatures!! seems to be your favorite subject... you do them very well!!!!! the last digis were pretty neet, still I agree with MaestroAndres... the colors seem too.... hmmm... how do I say it right.... 'clean'? I mean they shine so bright and the saturation is very high.... though I think you chose them very well, nice complementary contrasts and such

    I know exactly what you mean by saying you're not in the right mood... I mean it is lame but thats how the truth is!! some days I feel like my brain's totally empty even though the urge to draw is there... and then I think about the other things I should do instead of drawing, so I leave it and fell bad at the same time that I did it... geez!!! life suck sometimes!!! but now enough with the selfpittyness! let's go back to the table and work on our weeknesses I'm pretty sure you will reach one day the level you messure yourself with!!!

    bye

    hey man, I can see that you are experimenting quite a bit, very cool stuff, I like the looseness of the last couple of pieces.

    Speaking of that, I loved the #67 sketch, the very rough ones. I think you added too much details too quick after step 4 or so but that is a great start man, mucho impressed.

    Stay loose and stay focused.
    Good work

    Woot! Tons of great studies in here, which is always good to see. But what really cracked me up where the creature designs! Nice fucking work man! Do some more digital color studies from life and you'll be all set

    great studies. you have some really nice lines with the pencil and awesome creature designs.
    still like your arctic dinosaur. one thing to think about would probably be the head. I can't really imagine what it would look like with a closed mouth. of course it could have a very flat head but I'm not sure if that'd fit to the rest of the body.
    last greyscale creature looks really promising!

    Nice studies! Keep doing them because they will help you. Your colors and value look very good, and I love the looseness of your brushstrokes. I'm still trying to figure out how you manage to create the fresh, airy feel in your paintings. The pen sketches are delicious.

    Velkroboy - haha sorry about that man... hehehe made my day.

    Maestro Andres - Thanks a bunch! I'll have to start painting some bananas and apples.

    lilou - thank you very much! yea too saturated, which is very often my problem hehe, hell yes, time to kick ass with our tablets.

    Buckster Thanks a bunch man. Some how I have problem sketching up a piece, it just flows.. and then when I start working on it I loose ally my initial looseness. Will have to work on that. Will stay loose and focused, Cheers!

    Algenpfleger - haha thanks also, thanks for giving me some tips about the books in your SB. Will probably order one now when I get money at the end of the month. Cheers.

    Monotony - Thank you! still regret I failed to deliver the piece in time. Oh well. As for the new beast.. my limited colour knowledge ruined it halfway haha. I had to rush it so I made some last-minute-duplicate-layer textures ... It looks really crap now, but I will re-work it after week's chow.

    Nightblue - thank you very much. I'm also trying to figure out how I do haha.. more delicious pen sketches coming in.

    Wow.. never had to respond to so many comments before.. I must be popular haha joke. Thank you all very much for your comments.. it's what keeps me going.

    More nude studies from this week, aswell as chow wip, and continuation on the beast - which is kinda ruined. Will rework it later... also been slacking with my other studies, especially face / selfportraits.. damn.

    Dude what the fuck o.O!
    serriusly, you just punched trough a big mental wall there, great update, love the pen n paper stuff, the anathomy is looking great, and I see ur getting the crosshatching down pretty well to.

    you still have to work with how you transfer your lineflow and work out a better way to read your own lines when your going over to digital, cause I see a clash there.

    again all I can say is that you impress me very much! haha though you say you have no clue what you're doing hahahha
    however, I see you are very good at what you're doing and I'm sure you'll go a far way!
    oh, about your question... I use basic human anatomybook from Hogarth and random photographs from google as reference but I'll suggest you keep better go on drawing from life like you just started *good*

    umm yeah... nothing more to say right now...hehe... k... so, bye then

    nice progress!

    I would recommend changing the way you transition from grayscale to colors. You seem to hit the colors better when you start from color. I would recommend painting in color more often, and if you are going from a grascale image to color, be bolder in your application. Don't be afraid to lose some fine detail because you painted over it, and don't leave any black or white.

    I look forward to see where you take things
