    Eugene Arenhaus' sketchery

    Hey guys.

    Here's the guy whose job is to walk the dogs of war.

    Done in HB pencil over two iterations of roughs, which explains its unusual (for me) thin sketchy lines.

    really nice man! Gotta love that bear jumping over that small dog. Awesome!
    Love that first image aswell, the dogs looks completely crazy, one thing that bothers me is his right hand, the one that's flicking the cigarette, it's not on par with the rest, I would redraw that and make it totally awesome!

    A demo done yesterday in one of threads here on conceptart.org. Going exactly with the original mannikin's proportions might not have been the best idea... I prefer my figures more realistic and less anime leggy. Oh well.

    Wow, I was searching for a proportional reference. This is amazing

    Hey arenhaus I sent you a friend request! To help you find your rhythm in your figures I recommend "Force: Dynamic Life Drawing for Animators"; it will liven them up; they look a little stiff. Hey by the way thanks for all of your feedback on my pieces so far!

    Also I love the tonal arrangements in your ink pieces; very good; I know we have both read "Creative Illustration"!

    Well, war is (temporarily) on hold. We see if the bandits do good on their promise to resume bombardment tomorrow...

    Meanwhile, reply time!

    Beautiful ink things. Nice values, nice texture.
    Thanks! Most of the war was on the other end of the country, this time.

    I basically went and bought one of every kind of nib the biggest local art supplier carries, mostly Speedball ones. I already had some Hunt ones. So for these illustrations I used a variety of nibs to create textures, rather than rely solely on linework.

    The ink drawings remind me of the work of Edward Gorey, although i prefer your adorable animal drawings over them. They have a nice familiar Disney charme.
    Thanks. I am not sure why you mention Gorey - just because they are done with nib pens, or some other reason?

    And i hope you don't mind me saying that the perspective in your ink drawing of the city seems to be slightly off at some points. The white house fronts facing the viewer stick out to me as not fitting.
    Not sure. At the moment I don't really see what's up with that.

    I just spent some time to research your injuries, that stuff is beyond nasty. What did you do to get damaged so badly, did you get hit by a semi?
    No, had a walk in San Francisco.

    Yes, sir, I mean, ma'am, sir!

    Thank you for the compliment! As for writing poetry, I do that very occasionally, and mostly in whimsical style along the lines of Nash or Milligan (I hope). These are not my poems, illustrated.

    Thanks. I actually have that book. I just don't choose to exaggerate or rely exclusively on rhythm as its demos do. I use essentially the same approach, but opt for more subdued energy in the figures and more precise anatomy, than on the furious line of an animator's sketch. And the VP study you linked at was more about lighting and form than about dynamics.

    Also I love the tonal arrangements in your ink pieces; very good; I know we have both read "Creative Illustration"!
    Har!

    It just came to my mind because he used a simliar approach in shading larger areas, the small strokes i mean.

    As for the city drawing, i actually meant just the one house. In my understanding the left line should be parallel to the right one. I know it's very nitpicky, but in a drawing this accurate something like this sticks out to me.

    Oh, that. It's an actual house I had simplified, so its walls ended up with different height on the two sides.

    Model drawing

    Since we've been mentioning "FORCE", let's dig out something drawn in a looser manner. This is from a figure drawing session last year, done in conte (unfortunately, rather hard, unyielding brand of conte). The model was lying down on a stack of gym mats, in front of a mirror wall. She fell asleep rather early in the session...

    Another of the demos done for conceptart.org forums here.

    The artist I did this for had originally used reference which I hadn't seen, which was supposed to be an archer; but since no sane archer would take up this pose if he hoped to hit anything with an arrow, I didn't recognize it as such and had to reinterpret.

    Perhaps. If I dig into my archive I think I might find something more like a deer, but the closest thing I'd done recently was some sketches of female fauns. Most weren't good enough to post.

    Keep up the sketch posts!
    Will do!

    Well, if you find it useful, go ahead. As I've said, I was following someone else's proportions.

    The more animal-like child looks so shy and cute, she (at least I think its a girl) kinda reminds me of myself at that age

    No, I remember I was thinking about a forest background.

    Contemplating sushi

    Practice sketch, an exercise in body types. I included a rough and a clean version.

    I have no idea why they are contemplating a fishbowl, however. It just happened.

    Hello arenhaus! Always see you posting and helping people over the forum, never checked your sketchbook untill now though I got to admitt. You got a very fun and enjoyable cartoon style, hehe the bear and the dog in post #4 really made me smile. I also like the satyr lady's facial expression in post #3.

    I hope you will be updating in the near future!

    I admire the fact that you've become such an expert at representative illustration without being able to rely on the privilege of inborn facility. That you would take so much time and effort in the pursuit of a form so difficult for you shows admirable determination and assiduousness. I hope you never become too busy to take the time to continue assisting others in these forums with your sage and hard-won understanding of the traditions of the old masters.

    Speaking of which, I particularly enjoy your eerily virilialess cat-headed body builder pin-ups. Keep it up! (So to speak.)
