Rusko-Berger: sketchbook...freedom, ideas & practice
This is an ongoing catchall for various quick images, ideas, and studies.
It's great to have the freedom to show images freely. They'll be whatever about whatever.
I hope you enjoy looking at my Whatevers.
p.s. Once in a while I post a pastiche. I love doing them as they're a fantastic way to learn. (Any pastiches, Master studies, etc will be noted in my image and/or post and attributed to original Artist.)

Nice stuff! I love this one, the lower part of her body feels odd, but her face is great!
Anyway, great paintings and drawings. Your art reminds me a bit of Bill Sienkiewicz, especially his comic 'Stray Toasters'. But maybe that's just me.

As for the "lower area" on that drawing...I just have a thing for low-slung, big-hipped girls, and drawing them. It's "non-standard", but it's interesting to me.
As for Sienkewicz--hell yeah. I have the book you mentioned. If I can follow that tradition some--fantastic (and he lives 3 towns over from my hometown). As a colleague of mine once said about him: "Sienkiewicz started out as Neil Adams, but quickly turned into Barron Storey."
