I've been sneaking around at the forum for years now and now I think it's time to put something up.
Here some freehand inking I've been drawing a little once in a while.
Great start! Facial features and expressions look lively. I think some of the faces have weird jawlines though and I know it's stylization but to me it seems you're sometimes stylizing them more than the rest of the faces. For that part, I think it would help immensely to study the form of the skull. Apart from that and maybe some asymmetry here and there, the heads look solid overall and I definitely like their character. Try inking with a brush too if you haven't already and keep up the good work!
*Smuli, thx for pointing out the jawlines. I've been studying the skull more now since when I drew the sketches from my first post and have tried to draw heads more then ever before by looking at reference photos.
I am not comfortable inking with a brush yet, which I mostly used for colouring so far, but since I know that lots of artists are in fact inking with it I will try practicing using it. Eventually I hope I scraped togehter enough money for a Cintiq, and then I will go on learning sketching and inking on it instead.
*DefiledVisions, yeah One Piece is awesome!, but More Pieces are better then One, and more will come. Tjenare!
*MoKhi, thx for thinking my sketches look realistic and lively. I hope they will become even more lively in the future.
Here comes a bunch Sketches of People in Tibet from an old book about Tibet I found in my mothers book shelf.
All these are sketched with a fine point ink pen and no helplines has been used. The reason for not sketch out the figure with pencil first is, first, because it's incredible fun to directly put out black lines on white paper, second, it's a practice using a tool which doesn't allow any mistakes, which is great using once in a while after sitting digital for a long time hovering over ctrl Z with your left hand..
Some more sketches of people of Tibet. These will be the last sketches from the book I've been drawing from the last week. Covered it from cover to cover now, picked out the 75 most interesting people from it. I will probably pick out a book I bought lately about native Americans next. I love sketching people that look different from each other and try to avoid using reference photos of people with perfect faces with symmetry lines, and hopefully they are more interesting for you guys to look at as well.
