Very nice, don't forget the feet though, heh. =p Have to get me some markers so i can do something as cool as those girls too. >_<
Pluscandy, ahhh too kind. n__n But I hope you do keep drawing whether or not my SB will continue to inspire you. XD
Jabo, cheers. That was my favourite to draw too! XD It was done on the train and I think I had some interested seatmates staring at the page.
ARRGH!, thanks for dropping by my SB- I love my comic books so I guess it's interesting that that shows itself in my art. ^^ I have a comic in the planning with a friend- hopefully I can find time to start working on that as I've been doing so much character concepts for it already!
danlucas, thank you~ I usually use OpenCanvas for digital lineart as well as painting- but I've recently started to use Photoshop for some digital painting as well. I'll try to pack more drawings- I tend to avoid drawing over previously drawn art/characters and I need to get over this habit.
Imaginary, yesss get some markers! prisma is affordable I reckon?
miycko - Thanks; yes, Dean(left) is supposed to be a whole head shorter but I misjudged where to start drawing.
Oh hey, it's the Year of the Tiger today (Valentine's day). So happy Chinese New Year to you, asian or not. XD Tiger was referenced, and parts of girl referenced all over- particularly for the flowers, and her dress. This was a last minute greeting thing I did to send to various friends and relatives. CLEARLY I didn't put too much effort in it. P:
Recent photoshop "speed" painting. This one took me 1hr15mins. Reference here.
But I wasn't happy a day later, so I spent another hour and half? on it. I'm much happier to have actually gone back to fixing it.
Recent study; picked up an unwanted biology/anatomy book off the bf. Got the hang of it as I drew more. My next study will perhaps be on feet! Looking forward to it.
Random train sketches following...
And current stage of the Guy Holding Apple wip (even though I haven't touched it for a week now). I've sinced fix up his pose, although I did prefer the louder/less-comfortable-looking pose. Upped the contrast since I tend to not be as bold in my contrasts. Background- had fun randomly painting it, no reference - so don't mind if something looks off- feel free to let me know though?
---Hi, dear ILMENHIN. Thanks for stopping on my board & glad to hear that you've told me about the ART HOUSE, & I haven't been there. BTW: Lots of nice drawings & good studying of the human anatomy process especially really interesting characters are here on your board. Keep drawing & creating.
---I've just noticed that MONGOLIAN TRADITIONAL SCRIPT /...which means MONGOL, anyway guess you already knew what was that script meant... ';D / there were one of your drawing on the first page, indeed. What do you know about MONGOLIA & how did you know the script of "MONGOL" actually? How often do you go to the Art House, every Monday?.......................
---/BTW:.................. really sorry about my English............
Here is my: S-K-E-T-C-H-B-O-O-K
/.....if there is someone from AUSTRALIA especially from SYDNEY on this site, then leave a msg for me, and I really want to meet with you & to making a friends-of course if you'd agree it...............please
You have a pretty strong sketchbook here. I personally did not see any issues with your hands or feet (unless you want them to have more movement). I do see what you mean about different lighting sources. I dunno anything on that cuz im in the same boat me self.
Keep drawing and posting!
My sketchbook- http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=181789
wow looking really good~ I adore the tiger and your face you did~ it was worth spending more time on it~ I looks amazing~ *clap* Also really enjoy your Random train sketches~ they are so fun to look at~
and I don't think I could ever not draw~I draw all the time even if it's just little doodles of odd little characters~XD so no worries~
Hey there, great updates the anatomy studies, portrait of the young man, and your Valentine, all got me inspired so let's see more! Hey BTW what artists are you into? Thanks.
You have some very good drawings in your SB, KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!
Mag-Neo - thanks! I don't know anything about Mongol or its script... Not quite sure which part of my art where the script appears? I haven't been going to the Arthouse Hotel this year- I heard they've increased the entry fee to $4. : ( I will most likely go if people I know are going!
Maxx_Biff, thanks, you're very kind. Let's both keep at it!
Pluscandy, aw thanks. And glad to hear you will be continuously drawing~
miycko, mike butkus thanks!
ARRGH!- replied in your SB to your question, but now that I've thought about it, there's a lot of artists here I admire in the Sketchbook subforum- there's just so many people here inspiring me to keep at what I do. There's an incompleted list in my signature of peoples' SB I like to look at. I've got more subscribed to, and I have looked up everyone in my thread more than once. On deviantart, (to name a few of varying styles): AuroraInk, Sandara, Wredwrat and Poshua.
Imaginary @_@ yessir, coming right up!
Random sketches done partly on train, partly on plane, and one part profile of bf in Hong Kong.
Train sketches following.
Not train sketches...
Fanart of characters from a webcomic titled "Hanna Is Not A Boy's Name!"
And a wip laid to rest finally! Probably 18hours total?
And this is mostly all that I'm not too embarrassed to show. I've a few other artwork but... HEH.

Very nice sketches as always & i really like that commission piece though i think her nose and mouth seem a bit low on her face. Glad to hear you finally finished that WIP too embarrassed to show some works, i feel the same most of the time, especially in my when i do them in my lazy state keep on posting, even the embarrassing stuff if you have to
Holy Bovine - maybeeeeeeee? If I run out of ideas, I'll revisit to colour them. ^^
miycko, thanks! I didn't notice the positioning of that - it's not too bad but yes it would perhaps affect the "sexy" factor. XD; I'll keep your words in mind. ^^ I have on occasion already posted embarrassing art. D: XD But the more embarrassing art I was referring to - I must say is... perhaps NSFW and might be a little D: to some people here.
Chronologically, old to new, starting with train sketches!
Animation draft 1 - I didn't like how the hair moved too much so I redit the animation. This is done with 19 frames? And I drew the eyes blinking separately to the mouth smiling and hair moving. Then I mixed and matched so it doesn't seem too stiff in terms of animation.
Animation final - cleaned up a lot but she doesn't smile as naturally as the previous one. This was for a friend.
Castiel fanart quickie. :/
More train sketches.
Lineart as an auction sample that a friend and I are holding on Gaia (lol. for virtual gold. I draw, she colours. I prefer drawing to colouring.)
Started as a train sketch, completed wings and swirls at home. No references. And yes her nose and mouth are slightly off... I might just correct that for deviant art. Post-proc in Photoshop, for the mother of pearl texture.

great work on the animation i think the time intervals between her blinks is a little too even though, how long did it take to do?
i have to say, those train sketches keep improving with every post really like this one http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...2&d=1271653190
GOSH! I so love watching progress though sketchbooks!
I really like that there is a lot more of the softness of your life drawing sketches in your more stylised cartoon-esque work.
Way way cool as I think that your life drawings are great and when you put it all together with your style and character designs it comes out awesome.
Yay for Sydney too, and props for attempting nanowrimo. I don't even bother trying anymore, november is always the busiest month of the year... the nano curse.
in2eternity - thanks!
micyko - It was rushed, but the anim process took me perhaps 3 hours. I'm surprised the page you picked was something my friends liked too. ^^; Oh well, I'm not complaining. I'm always trying to think of something different to draw on the train and I'm running out of random.
ARRGH! - In open canvas, I did a base face sketch on one layer, a few separate states of the eyes, mouth and hair movement into each of their own layer. Then I combined different states to achieve a wider variation of facial expressions and moved 20 pictures (frames) of different face states into ImageReady (which came with Photoshop 7) and it wove out a .gif for me.
I've got a simpler animation in this post using 2 states of blink, 2 states of eyes, 4 states of mouth. Similar process, 10 frames total. ^^;;; Very simple, you get the idea.
Ammo, thanks! You should post agaaaain. Your SB thread is fantastic! Ugh yeah Nano gives me much woe. I'm somehow finding excuses not to go through with it.
Small update. :/
Train sketches. I ran out of ideas. The two guys near the middle of the book, on the first page- they're Hogarth studies, and not train sketches. I should learn how to draw weaponry/gun tech/etc.
Lineart of a friend's character in my style.
Here's me playing with Painter. I love how there's a palette on the side for you to blend your own colours! I've no idea though on how to make the lineart less pixelly looking.
Here's me playing with my sets of copics. I had to fix her mouth on PS, because I tampered too much on paper and it looks... fuzzy. I used copics, black .5 ballpoint pen and a white gel pen.
And here's something I did when I left the mermaid without a body (at that time I'm not sure who she was supposed to be- I don't think before I draw. I think as I draw. Bad habit.)
I love your marker stuff, the colours look so nice. ^_^
thank you for stopping by my sketchbook. I'm in love with your girls here!
and it's kinda funny to see all "work in progress" (because I said so) stamps all around
try to observe what you have done by looking at anatomy book. that way you can learn from your own drawing/sketch.
You've improved so much from the just your first post. I really love seeing the bone/muscle studies. That stuff is just so important. Regardless, your stuff is looking lovely, and I'll be a return customer to this SB.
Post #63 has some really really strong stuff in it. The digital of the guy really pops off my screen.
The girl and the tiger are so interesting. The monochrome palette lets forces you to think about tone and is a good precursor to actual coloring. Yet the contrasting smooth/fuzzy lines and silky/furry textures create a wonderful contrast. The composition is great too, with the medallion on her necklace, her eyes, and the tigers eyes acting as a triangle of interest. Also, the characters (kanji?) to the top left and the writing below the tiger help move the eye around.
Anyways, I'm excited to see what you have in store the next couple weeks/months. Keep at it. = )
just me dropping by again.. and wow!
I love that tiger and the girl with cat ears.
will check this thread more frequently!
very nice sketchbook, the way you draw noses gives to your drawings a nice touch, u do then very detailed and cool!
le lineart on post 74 is also very nice... keep going!
Very good studies keep up the good work.
