    Post 178 and 182 are just incredible. I love your sketchbook stuff. You can really tell you've been sketching for 5 years! I have been doing it myself for a year and there is a big difference in how you make marks. Yours are accurate but also have interest and character. I'm more like a meat camera! Wish I had a sketchbook like this - anyway post more pages please. The goddess exhibition is intresting too btw.

    Only crit would be to post more and less "thinking" :p

    And yes I have a thinking problem! I`m sketching every day I`m just posting 10 %. But I havn`t finished an illustration for a long time. I`m kind of scared. In this year I tried to reboot my habbits... starting over again. I wanted to get away from Photoshop and to find my own voice. But this process was or is harder than I thought in the beginning.
    I am so bored of all the fanciless cliché art!!!
    ...sorry for this
    don`t you agree with me that thinking anyhow is a really important aspect of art. and I know it is hard to find the right mixture of thinking and producing.
    what are your thoughts?

    i find i have the hardest time really finishing a thought (or piece), and being able to present it accordingly.
    but on the other hand,i often enjoy the sketching and development process more.

    Loved the sketchbook pages with imaginary illustrations, somehow so familiar faces and lines..

    Just read about the thinking part, I have seen that art is influenced by the way of thinking, state of mind and much more.. I guess questioning yourself is showing that you are carrying on..

    Actually these dense sketchbook pages are really fresh, I like the overall spontaneous and "real" feel. Nice, well done!

    don`t you agree with me that thinking anyhow is a really important aspect of art. and I know it is hard to find the right mixture of thinking and producing.
    what are your thoughts?"

    I wont even compare your situation with mine, but let me tell you that i'm on a similair phase. I've been traveling for one month and of course, i drew all the way. i filled 3 sketchbooks, one has been stolen, in paris(but i bought another one right away, and bigger) so, the other one is to big to be scanned and the other one i won't scan it until i photograph the big one and do a collection of what i drew on the trip. I said this to let you know that i'v been drawing without thinking a lot! only drawing what i see.
    And I'm filling sketchbooks way to fast, as i never did before, i can't even find the time to scan all the pages, and honestly i don't want to.

    The thing is, i'v been drawing a lot without thinking and now i embraced a project and the "thinking" part is starting to show up more and more.
    If i have to classify the thinking part and the not thinking part, i would say that.. i don't know. if you draw for other eyes to see, thinking will burst the way you paint/draw and you learn! And not only from yourself, but from what you expect that the viewers will feel while looking at your work. If you draw for yourself, then thinking is not needed, drawing will be an experimentation, justifying yourself is not needed, so the drawing is, in the end, yourself, wich doesn't happen when you think while creating something. i guess.

    Anyway i look at your sketchbook pages and my jaw just drops into the floor eahc time i do it.
    May i ask you something? Do you draw lots of faces/people/expressions in the street with your regular medium? because i see life drawings yes, but mostly buildings, and the poses seem from posemaniacs.. I love your inks, I was trying to imagine myself with a drawing kit like yours, but i guess it would be much harder to sketch something spontanious with those materials. anyhow, you do have lots of excelent drawings of people/faces wich seem that were made from life, spontaneous. do you inkwash them right after you trace the lines or you do it in some other phase?
    and what kind of sketchbook is yours? i saw the photo but i dont recognise it. Are the drawings scanned, or photographed? (i have to get a camera, not only for bigger drawings but to take some photographs of stuff that i can't draw in the place, and then draw while i'm at home)

    I'm sorry if i'm being anoying, and of course, you don't have to answer me if you dont feel like it now.

    cheers!

    Master Mind, I love your work. I've been going through your book page by page, and admiring all of the different character sketches and studies. I'm so glad to see that you're old school, and you don't do everything in Photoshop. That's a great program, but there's nothing like sharpening up a pencil or doing your own ink wash.

    But then I saw that picture you did of the Bridge of Sighs in Venice. Man, I've been there a few times, and knowing that the view from the bridge was the last thing a man would see before being locked away in the prison on the other side, you've really captured a feeling of desperation and gloom in your drawing. Maybe you didn't intend to, but it felt loud and clear to me. Excellent job!

    By the way, you mentioned on the first or second page about drawing from WW2 photos...were you meaning that you look at the photo for the basis and then sort of add your own details to the picture?

    "If you draw for yourself, then thinking is not needed, drawing will be an experimentation, justifying yourself is not needed, so the drawing is, in the end, yourself, wich doesn't happen when you think while creating something. i guess."

    I see your point, but If your intention is to create more than just beautyful pictures, the thinking is mandatory a part of the process even a part of the artwork..
    Lately I didn`t draw many faces from life. And I rarely have my indian ink with me when I am doing so. Using simply some fineliners or a black colored pencil like here But the most part of my sketchbook was drawn from head.
    My sketchbook is from boesner

    best regards

    Cozmo

    Thank you.
    I agree with you about Photoshop. An year and a half a go I did a series of illustrations in Photoshop --> and it was always very frustrating in the end to have just a file on your desktop. And people don`t have styles anymore, pretty much all Ps paintings look the same. And one of the biggest mistakes that is done these days is to start painting in Ps if you don`t have any traditional experience.

    Yes a while ago I sketched from ww2 photos. I just used the photos as a basic and tried to get away from them as the sketch developed. It`s a good technique to find new forms and lines in your usual sketching or drawing habit

    havnt seen a sketchbook that really inspired me in a long time.
    I think it was loomis that said that drawing is really a thinking man's art? or maybe it was harold speed.
    im looking forward to seeing more!

    I was one of those wanting to learn ps painting without any knowledge of traditional paints. Do you think that knowing traditional paints will help me make paintings that don't have that samey photoshoppey feel? I can imagine that it would help me learn to paint much better and understand painting better, but not necessarily help much or at all when it comes to making ps art that looks distinctive and with its own style.

    I was ready to vote for your work for the character of the week,
    but I can see that you did not finished it.
    Shame on you.

    Your new website is looking sooooo good,
    I like the smoothness and how those images slides in as you click on them, almost perfect.
    The only thing I do not like is the blinding white general background.
