    I like this. The costume is a bit over-wrought maybe, but that's just a style, I suppose.
    The hands are rockin'! A little claw-like at the tips, but I love the sense of form and
    energy, very expressive.

    I still love the way you abstract and simplify all the angles in your work, and the way
    your hatching traces the contours and gives a sense of form.

    I'd like to see more street-scapes, try to really take your time and gets some
    nice clean lines. Maybe even work in some shadows with marker or wash. Just sitting
    in one spot and sketching a scene for a couple of hours could be really rewarding.

    Keep posting!

    A long time has passed since i last updated.. Luckily, it was for a good reason. I will update soon so

    seungy thanks for your time man. The truth is that it worries me that everyone comments about the abstractness of my sketches. I hope it doesn't mean that i can't draw something more specific and naturalistic at the same time. I try not to step on this, let's say, easy for me thing and go on with my studies. About the figure drawing, you are so right!

    Lechri thanks! I want to work with oils, but i tried to do my job with what i had. I really try to understand what fits me or not, which technique to use with different materials. Να σαι καλά ρε,τα λέμε σύντομα.

    BludHund thanks. What do you mean exactly by saying that i simplify the angles? Are referring on details and colors?
    At the time, i am using photos as referrences for enviros and really take my time. it's hard to make something look naturalistic after all that time of non practicing real life drawing.

    Thanks again, i will return with updates next time. See ya!

    Q: What do you mean exactly by saying that i simplify the angles?

    A: I was speaking about lines. In the same way that an octagon is a simplified representation of a circle.

    Thanx guys. Didn't have a scanner or internet so, that is why i haven't uploaded any work. Well, better now than never. There is some old work here too. I try a more "classic" painting approach, experinmenting with various things. All of them are either sb or A4 pages with ink and clothe colours. Feedback is always helpfull.

    Hey dude, I really like the mood of this last portrait here ^ why not go back and touch it up with a fine liner, I think you could make it more powerful with a little detail. Keep up the good work.

    Long time no see. The exams are over at last. I keep working on different things lately so i will upload some of them. The 3d models are my first attempt to use a program like that (ZBrush). The others are for a 2 page print for a storyteller and perfume logos (Zeus and Europe from greek mythology).

    I mean work long on them trying to make picture as perfect as possible.
    Think hard, scream out loud of frustration but stay there and keep painting
    good luck
