    Man, that's a wonderful start to a sketchbook Can't wait for more things.. you're lines are great and your shading also. Maybe you can work a bit more on your gestures

    Keep it up!!!

    Was really great to meet you, and you can annoy me anytime you want

    i'm likin it man. your thumbnail sketchbook was a pleasure to look thru, i think i might get one of them for composition studies

    i think ur imagination drawings would benefit more from a greater focus on rhythm,
    figures like these http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4078/...54a5d94c_b.jpg
    sometimes appear a bit contrived as in, constructed from straight lines and shapes

    prometheus' tutorial has a good example of what i mean
    http://www.itchstudios.com/psg/tuts/construct.jpg
    life drawing can help a lot, and gesture studies; arms arent tapering cylinders, muscles give an infinite variation to the contour that you can really push and play with. using more dynamic perspectives can also add more variation into the outline of a figure and make the silhouette more interesting. being aware of the subtleties of the human form usually marks the difference between a good figure and a great one. your starting to get there already, but i think your at a place where some focus on that will really make your figures stand out. in depth anatomy studies would be good too, the body is always so full of energy even in repose, it has so much rhythm

    i really like your pen drawings up top too

    Quike: Thanks for the input. I used to do gestures all the time. For a while i was pretty decent at making poses out of my head and not much else. It seems the more more i worked on the other stuff, the stiffer things got. That might just be how i remember it though. It's really nice to hear from you; when you update your book i owe you a real crit.

    Sean: Indeed, my imagined figures are much weaker. It becomes particularly obvious to me when i am trying to create one and have no idea what im doing. Those sketches are rather old, and i wish i could say that i no longer have that problem. I have a fairly weak grasp on anatomy as i have never studied it extensively and most of my understanding is based on life drawing. Unfortunately, the majority of that has been me drawing unsuspecting people at the book store or coffee shop or on the train. That's why i love being able to make it to figure drawing sessions when i can afford it. I just need render more efficiently since i cant get much done in 2 hours as it is. Thanks for the help, I'll hit you on FB or something to see if we can put each other on to any hiphop artists.


    This one is still fresh. I drew my cousin's daughter while she was relatively still. More or less looks like her.

    Really good to have you back, man.

    Faces are looking quite good. Obviously all that live sketching is paying off.

    I'd like to see some more figure construction, or some newer creative stuff. Just remember: anatomy is a detail, and helps you understand the figure's construction, but it is only a detail. If your proportions and structure are solid, you've got a foundation to build on.

    Keep it up!

    Thanks David! You pretty much nailed it. I was about 20 times as creative about 5 or 6 years ago, if you can quantify that. I sort of want to forget about everything else and just try to convey some ideas that I think are cool. Actually I think I do have a few things I've been saving for page 2 (dont want to dump too many images on one page. Hows the load time btw?) but it might not be a whole lot better than the old stuff. Wait, no, I mean its 1000 times better! Everybody comment more, youre not seeing it until page 2! Im not sure if Ive ever even constructed a figure, actually, but its something Ive been meaning to do as well. I guess its just so easy to fall into old habits when I start drawing. I need to start with an agenda, make a checklist or something. Thanks for the feedback, your own work is looking great!

    Well, the little girl from my last post left behind one of those crayons they give kids at restaurants and I'm going to try to destroy it with art! Here is a drawing I did of my friend with it. Apologies to everyone I draw for not drawing them better.

    This one started as a couple of terrible sketches in one of my old books. Now its one significantly less terrible sketch with something apparently going on in it. Still no background though

    Hey hey! that's one healthy start to your new sb! I particularly like the rendering of the guy with the turban's face in the piece where you've written "memento mori". It reminds me a little of Edmund Dulacs Arabian nights illustrations.

    I've gotta agree with what's been said already re your observation work v your imagination work. I've been experimenting with creating quick wire frame gestures to get a more dynamic pose before starting the fleshing out process and it's been working quite well so far. They're easy to change and take no time at all, but a good understanding of anatomy is still pretty crucial. Have you tried out posemaniacs?

    Lookin forward to seeing more!

    Sorry, haven't been connected for a few days.

    Heres a sketch from an open studio session at the Palette & Chisel. Due to some scheduling confusion, I only got a little under an hours work in on it. Since I was working slowly, correcting as I go, it looks like this:

    Hows tricks my american cousin ? Been having a look through you pics and I have to say, the old lady in the head scarf and the one below it are especially awesooome, the character, mood and intrigue they create is fascinating to me.

    One thing I have noticed is that you have a knack for getting an image across very well with only a few lines, I really admire this skill you have developed.

    Only crit I really have for you would be to take some of your sketches all the way through from initial sketch to a full colour and render. But maybe that is just because I want to see what you can do with a full process taking place.

    P.s If you do decide to do this I request you do the one where his arm is up facing what I assume is the attacker (the one underneath the old lady with the head scarf) that would be the shiiiiiiiiiiiii*!

    These life drawings look quite good.

    Whether you realize it or not, you have a very good eye, and good control of your medium. How often are you able to go to life drawing sessions? I try to go once a week...I can't decide if that's too often or not often enough

    More, more!!! You promised!

    Hey there, Your pencil shading is really nice, it's the first thing that cought my eye. So that's definitaly a strong side of you
    I also envy how you can portrait faces like that. Also looks really good.
    You're also smacking those studies in a lot, damn. those are a lot of studies
    The only thing I'm lacking of seeing is finished work. So when I come back I hope you're working on that!

    Keep on the good work!

    Lovely skyline sketch!
    You seem to be able to make your hours-long figures look like they were done really quickly - hope that doesn't sound odd, I don't mean they look rushed, just that I find it hard to keep the energy or looseness of a sketch in a more developed piece like you seem to! Lovely ^_^

    The_Flying_Dutchman Glad you like them.

    Metal Fingers Cheers

    geckochan Oh they are rushed Honestly i dont usually have as much time to render as id like. I know what you mean about losing the energy of a sketch. Might have something to do with me never finishing anything

    Luckers Yeah i hope im at least good at that considering the things ive neglected. Still working on finishing things. got a couple im working on right now in photoshop. We'll see about showing something soon. Thanks for the encouragement.

    Here are most of the sketches I did at Atomic Sketch in Chicago on thursday

    you do some really, really nice rendering in that moleskine of yours. looks like you might need some hand studies though. there's places where you're avoiding them (the most recent post with the banana boob lady on the frog-made-pony) and places where you draw what seem to be stock hands (like in post 19 where you draw the same fist in a couple different places), but man you're coming along. great stuff! >w<
