    Wow, these studies look great. Seeing that you're only seriously doing art since a year makes me feel kind of depressed, when I think about how long I'm doing it. Maks me wonder what goes on inside of your head while doing your studies.
    Anyway, keep up the great work, it's really inspiring.

    Yo, architecture studies are looking sweet. Can you describe the mental process of making them? Are you like projecting simplified forms onto the page with your brain and drawing over them? I've always admired artists that can throw down details like that without any construction. If I were to just start drawing in the shingles on a roof, there's no way anything in the drawing would line up with anything else.

    kdiegert: Haha, thanks a lot man. I'm more into observational drawing, so the construction doesn't really worry me as much, I just basically almost "blind contour" those lines, but look at the paper to make sure my ratios are correct. The large forms are drawn first, then smaller ones, then finally details. Hope that helps!
    AvisNocturna: Thanks so much Avis! Don't feel depressed, you've improved SO much since your first SB post. In fact, you were one of the sketchbooks I lurked a lot before I grew the balls to get on here. Cheers!
    MattGamer: Thanks man
    rumpenstiltzkin: Thanks, glad you enjoy my work and that post!
    Cranberry: Much, much appreciated
    Teundeboer: Thanks so much!!
    MatejaPetkovic: That portrait was done in traditional oil paint. SO honored you dropped by my sb, I absolutely love your work, especially your character design sense. Thanks!
    CarmenJudy: Thanks a lot! Gotta love McQueen haha. His fashion design was impeccable.
    Aondê: Thanks, I liked the way you worded that
    FUSHANDCHUPS: Thanks a lot Fush, much appreciated.
    Ludic: Haha well I hope they're not too frightening. The sub is much appreciated!
    bpic: Thanks for the bookmark! And yeah my philosophy is that if working from life/ref and doing studies were good enough for the masters, then I'll be satisfied following in their footsteps .
    sin eater: Thanks! Draw you hands off!!!
    drey101: Just keep drawing, you're closer than you think. Thanks!

    Well, I'm going to counter my last dump with a single, crappy phone cam pic haha. I've recently gotten back into doing graphite stuff traditionally. Traditional art feels more natural to me process-wise than digital stuff for now. Plus I believe I think more when I do it, which is always good. I love fantasy art, but also love contemporary illustration, which is more concept based, so I'm trying to meld the two genres for my own personal use. Not sure if that makes sense, but I'm just trying to feel out my own artistic sensibilities.

    Pic is a WIP, but it's graphite on clayboard. Portrait of my father. Not sure why he's on a base, but I'm trying to play with some vignette and design ideas. There's really no concept to it either, again, it's just a first test piece. So far I like how it's turning out! Sorry I couldn't scan it, I haven't fixated the drawing surface More to come very soon!

    I really like your shading and the detail you put in your sketches.You have an eye for detail and you should incorporate that in your paintings as well,because some of them seem too ambiguous at times.I might interpret them the wrong way though.Your anatomy seems to be good as well,you're catching some good poses.

    Stunning work! Love the expressive quality of your lines, and line to build form/value in the figure work. There's just so much confidence and purpose in the marks you put down, that's not easy to commit like that. Outstanding.
    Your digital figure studies are impressive too...looks like Painter? Correct me if I'm off on that one. Glad to hear you're taking the plunge with oil, it's a great medium. I'm still tinkering with Painter's oils/impastos, still searching for just the right mix that will give me the traditional simulation, looks like the bearded portrait has a little Impasto in there, just wondering what your thoughts were with that feature. I find it can get away from me and ends up looking a bit artificial if I overdo it with the Depth sliders...
    Looking forward to following your work!
    5*s.
    and thanks for the visit to my SB

    aww man, always loved your work... i especially love how fearless you are with your choices (both medium and application)

    can definitely see that you're more interested in understanding rather than just relying upon a particular technique that has proved successful - and i think thats why your progress has been so immense...really inspiring!

    cant wait to see where you go next!

    Saarmander: Thanks a ton!
    strybjorn: Thanks, and I really appreciate your observations on my work. Great crit.
    Ricardo Robles: Hey, thanks a lot man!
    Mike L: Thanks for the comments and the stars! The digital figures are done in photoshop, but the bearded dude was actually done in traditional oil paint. Hope that helps!
    Jeff Bartzis: Thanks a lot!
    Aryeh: Hey thanks man, and thanks for stopping by.
    JesseM: Thanks a lot!
    John Silva: Thanks John!
    Kriss_Kringle: Thanks man, and thanks for the crit. Great observations. I need to focus a bit less on the ambiguity and more on what is actually there.
    NickyBeats: Thanks bro! It's actually not tape, just a thin plastic film (frisket) that I apply to the surface and cut out the shape. Basically its traditional lasso tool/Mask tool haha

    Hey all, just a quick update, school is killing me right now (it's finals time!). I just joined the deathline challenge over on the Crimson Daggers thread, you all should check it out! Great motivation there.

    The first drawing is the finished piece that I was working on, just scanned and minute details were worked on. The second was a fun piece I did using graphite and then digital editing for Halloween. The third was a cover illustration done for Reporter magazine on food and psychology.

    And finally, I'm posting another WIP illustration. No sketchbook pages yet, I still have to scan them.

    Thanks for looking!

    Guik: Thanks a lot, much appreciated!

    theUNKNOWNsketcher: Haha thanks!

    kischi: Thank you!

    Been a while since my last update...not much to show again...school is KILLING me, and budgeting my time properly is challenging but I think I'm getting the hang of it. Here's two WIP's, yet again. It's for a series of Indian gods I'm doing for a digital illustration class.

    ALSO, I changed my name! Ixius was a cool name, but I feel my actual name is something I should get used to using, especially if I want to preserve my artistic identity in the long run. It's still going to be "Ixius' sketchbook" for now though

    It's not much, but thanks for looking!

    PS: I've got a few sketchbook pages on my blog that are more recent, mostly from life. I can't find the files on my computer anymore, so I'll just link to the post here (Click Here).

    Tugelbend: Haha well thanks man!
    NickyBeats: Thanks Nickybeats, as usual!

    Just a small amount of sketches to show. I'm trying to block in shadows first and then render the light, something to switch up my thinking I guess. It'll take some getting used to.

    Also, I'm applying for graduate school at the School of Visual Arts in NYC currently, so I'm in the process of tidying up all my portfolio pieces, and making a few more. Wish me luck, and thanks for looking!
