    HI there again matey

    I just thought I would pop by and see waht new joys you had put in and wow!!

    I like the mechanical bird and the watercolours, I tried some watercolours and discovered that I was totally useless at it, (lack of experience) I painted a tree and it looked ok, it dried and all the colours went a universal green. Looked like the kids painted it Sheeesh!!

    That last anatomy study though is great I like that a helluva lot well done with that, Keep posting becasue I am sorry to say you have become and inspiration for me.

    all the best mate

    Hey, that robot bird for DSG looks fantastic. Did you put a lot of extra time into that compared to your other work? The texture is really nice, especially on the head. That touch of texture does wonders for the realism of the object. I think maybe it would be helpful if you put some time aside to just work on texture studies, from life and from photos, of different surfaces that could then be worked into your imaginative work. For instance, you mentioned that on the butler, his boots were intended to be made of leather. If you wanted to improve that piece, maybe you could find some leather boots to use for a study and then try to apply what you learn from that into the butler image. (Or find another surface that you want to use in a different image and use that; it could be anything really.) I know you've done some still life and material studies in pencil, but digital is a bit of a different animal and requires some specific study in this area, I think, because it lacks any natural texture of its own. (Where traditional mediums each bring some sort of texture to the image that keep it from looking plastic-y and balloon-like.)

    Btw those last few anatomy studies look great, and they remind me of the studies I should be doing, lol. Are you working from a specific book or resource?

    Lightship69: Thanks, that's quite a compliment. I've found that the most important thing when working with watercolors it to build it up really slowly in transparent layers. That way you have the most control over the paint and it also doesn't matter that much if you screw up a bit.

    Dierat: Thanks. Well, yeah. I tried putting some extra effort into it. I got a bit lazy with it when it came towards the bottom part of it though... ^^'

    It seems like a lot of people are really into putting lots of detail into their stuff, but I allways have to force myself to do it.

    I did use a pair of leather boots for reference for the butler picture, but I guess I could've pushed the texture of it some more. Some digital life studies is probably a good idea, too.

    And yeah. Those anatomy studies are from Pecks Human Anatomy For the Artist book. I think it's the book that has been most helpful for me with anatomy in general. However it's taken quite some time to go over and copy all the diagrams in it since they're so detailed.

    Here's a poster for a small anime convention my brother is arranging with some other people.

    Also a WIP for a pic of the Major from Ghost In the Shell

    Some anatomy and lastly a sketch of a random girl

    Here's a still life. Could probably have pushed it a bit further but I got pretty tired of it. (And that banana started looking pretty brown after a while. )

    I've managed to find a job for the summer so I don't have a lot of time to be drawing right now.

    Hey there tobbA! As a way of trying to revive our ssg, I suggested we try and make a suggestion to the others, and that other has to try it.. well, I hope you're in for it 'cause here's mine to you:
    I think your still lives rock, but ppl are still stiff. Try drawing a pereon from real life for once. Dont get them to model thuogh! Just let m do their thing and draw!

    >>SKETCHBOOK. you'll visit me. I'll visit you, we'll have a tea party. with arts and shit. it'll be dreamy. stop by.

    Hi tobbA

    I was looking at the eyes you did and cant quite place whats missing from the ones I did recently, yours seem more natural somehow and mine look a bit , sort of forced or something. If you get time could you cast your eye over them for me and "rip em in bits" and point out the errors thanks.

    All the best as usual

    Long time no siege... heh.

    I haven't been exactly avoiding drawing but it's hard to find time to post stuff online.

    Ashess: take a look below and you'll see I did my homework. ;P Are we officially a ssg now then? ^^

    Very nice, really like the top of the wine bottle. Your rendering on shiny surfaces is just great. Maybe try to work in some objects that different kinds of textures, like rough or jagged surfaces, and see if you can recreate those; really challenge yourself and push out of your comfort zone. Keep up the good work!

    Nice banana and the still life is coming on. It'll be good to see the interactive shadows on the objects.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    hi tobba; really nice still lives. you really got that reflexion thing down. you might want to choose subjects with big differences in textures. like the banana and fase, and push for those differences; make them as big as possible. the wine and washingsoap is good, but all the textures are a bit samish.
    as for models, I really, really like that 22nd one, the lady reclining where you only really focussed onthe rib case. you made choices there. bold and simple. you should do more like that.

    Well, I did include a little wooden box and the cloth in the bg is pretty 'rough' but yeah, I see your point. Anyway it's 'done' now, could probably have pushed it further but I got a bit sick of it...

    Also a portrait of Serj Tankian, singer of System of A Down... And a WIP for IoW which I didn't manage to finish in time and a character called Chane from the anime Baccano.

    I so much prefer your traditional stuff. Saying that, that last portrait of Serj Tankian I can see some scribbling going on and it had broken up the surface and lost that balloon look. Finally, you're getting texture in your digital stuff.

    Rubens had the right idea - the more flesh the better.

    Poor buffalo with male pattern baldness. You've lost that texture again - put it back.

    Couple of rocks as a still life... Not so interesting as pictures go but I probably learned a bit from it. Horse studies and a modern day pirate thug... For some reason I'm the most happy about how his pants turned out.

    Really like the rock study; the object they're sitting on has some really nice texture to it. The horse anatomy study looks great too and reminds me that I should do some studies like that as well! For the pirate, it seems a little odd to me that he has a very large amount of fat on his stomach and his pectorals are also fatty and saggy, but the muscles on his arm are very well-defined. I imagine it would feel more consistent if the arm was a bit smoother and if it were wider at the top and narrows as you move down the arm since fat tends to congregate on the tricep (maybe like this or this). Also his hands and feet seem a bit large compared to his head/face. Anyway, great updates; keep up the good work!

    The rocks have texture - yes. Then you revert back. Keep plugging at it. I know you can do it and nail skin texture next.

    Thanks.

    Dierat: Yeah. That makes sense. I'll try and fix that...

    Black Spot: Actually. I don't think I agree. If anything the skin on the guy in the post before should be a lot smoother. Right now it's rougher than the pants and I'm not sure that's such a good thing.

    Some more of these anatomy studies. Some hands... And then a portrait of a girl that I'm gonna use as cover/thumbnail for a comic I'm working on. Though I feel like I lost her expression along the way... And then the last one's an unfortunate boy who lost his mittens in the snow but found something that sort of did the trick anyway... Might be a good idea not to keep it there for long though.

    Heh... Realized I had more to post.

    Some figure drawings... A portrait of Marlo from DFWDELL-Thread... And the first page of a comic that I'll hopefully be updating regularily as soon as things get going with it.

    Hi matey

    I like the girlies you've done mate and the cartoon strip, but the girl at the bottom with the purple outline seems to have a problem withher left eye, It doesnt seem as three dimensional as the other one if that makes any sense. it looks way different to me, sorry mate.

    all the best with the work

    Nice figure drawings.

    It's the slight difference in the size and placement of the irises that I think Lightship means. It's also in the green eyed girl above.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.
