    Rusko-Berger: sketchbook...freedom, ideas & practice

    Hi Everyone!

    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.

    best,
    Nick

    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.)

    Some additions: more drawings, some paint-y things.

    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.

    Greip: Thanks!

    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."

    Hisstorrryy!

    True, I just think that the hips looked a bit odd I guess. Maybe the hip bones should protrude a bit more. I don't know. But great stuff anyway!

    A really exciting and evocative starting point!

    I have no idea what this is or what it's going to be, but it's really evocative and suggests many exciting things!

    You got some very nice whatever's going on here.
    Reaaally like your line work and the hatching.
    You seem to have your way around values and form.
    Is the last one mixed media?

    Keep them coming.

    Thanks, Rotor.

    The last piece is all digital--it's me bouncing back-and-forth between Pshop & Painter.

    Painter has some pretty peerless brushes/surfaces/etc, so I use it when I need those things. But when it comes to editing a piece--or even just managing it, Layers-wise--right back to Pshop I go.

    Corel, Fractal, and maybe even the Lord Himself have tried pushing Painter's entire paradigm closer and closer to Pshop's over the years--but it's still not there. Not even close.

    So I bounce!

    See you around,
    Nick

    Hi man!

    Nice work so far.

    Manara's "Trompeuse Apparence" is such a nice book
