    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.

    She is missing Debussy.

    Black pencil over sketch in red pencil (knocked out after scanning).

    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

    A figure study, done without a model, to practice figure drawing from memory.

    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!
