Ricardo Robles: Thanks glad you like it. Yea the evil look made me wanna paint him.
Metal Fingers: Thanks Mister!
Nianto: Actualy i was thinking the same about my faces, they kind look same to me, hehe. Most of the faces are without ref, but there are some in there were i had a reference.
Here is a wip of mine and alex pascenkos colab. Check out his lines in his sketchbook.
Great sketchbook here--your pencils are looking marvelous. Also, great texture on the bird study from yesterday! What kind of brushes did you use for that? I'd love to see more of your work process--any idea when your next live stream will be?
(Also--I absolutely love the pencil sketch page with the goggles-guy. Tons of facial variation and individuality in those sketches. As far as critiques go, some of the ones you posted before that are a little same-y in the faces, but you really nailed it with those last two.)
I love the loose flowing lines in some of your sketches. Can't wait to see the orc guy finished!
If you're worried about you faces all looking too similar, perhaps next time you sketch, make a real effort to mix up the way you draw the features, how you position them on the face and the structure of the head, get some reference if you need to. Even if you go to such extremes as to achieve something that looks like a caricature, you can always pull it back and end up with something that is unique, but still fairly realistic looking.
Design and details of the collab are looking nice. I like the face a lot and especially the ears. Right now, I just miss some highlights and maybe more contrast to the background. I think the values are to similiar in some parts.
And I need to say that I like the loose style you have in some of your pencilsketches. Very nice =) Keep it up!
NickyBeats: Thanks man! love you too!
Jasper_: Thanks! Sure man livestream was fun, anytime dude.
Scotty Murph: hey thanks!
Valyavande: I agree about the values, will try to adjust that. Praise for the design goes to alex pascenko he did it.
AlexTooth: Thanks Alex
DeadBox: Thank you. Keep it up!
PS Zant: Thanks
Here is some sketching and thumbnails for a fictional magic card i am trying to do. Took a character from the magic universe and will make him into an illustration, trying out new workflow and so on, lets see how it turns out. Will go with the second thumbnail.
MOBICON - Mobile, Alabama's premier science fiction, fantasy, anime, comics, gaming, paranormal, horror and media convention! We are proud to support the Mobile Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals!
Great sketches--the looseness and energy are fantastic. That's something I need to try to bring into my own sketches; I get bogged down in details too often.
The fictional Magic card sounds like a really fun exercise (is that Tezzeret?) I definitely agree that the second is the better of the two thumbnails. It's more dynamic overall and has stronger lines of movement, plus the rocks(?) in the background create a really great line that goes through his body and into the robe at the right. Can't wait to see this one developed!
Ccs: Thank you
ThomasM: Thank you, will try to do more pencils!
teutelquessir: Thanks for looking.

_Quasar_: Thanks for dropping by, love your pencils.
shockowaffel: Yea right, will add that when i continue.
