    kvenh: Thanks! Glad you like it!
    Poo-kie: Nice stuff, you have a unique style!
    Grzessnik: Thanks! Can't promise I'll stick with the inks exclusively, I'm developing a fetish for jumping between mediums! Keeps me on my toes!

    I really like your approach. Brush and ink drawings/paintings are totally different from gesture drawings. I love both of them, because they show great treatment of subject. Gestures are rapid, dynamic and inks are silent and meditative.
    Have you tried work with bamboo pen? I found it very interesting tool. You can make thin stroke, broad stroke, blots when to much ink. It gives also different lines when it is wet and constantly runs of ink and goes dry.
    I love it for being very "primitive" tool.
    Keep going
    P.S. What paper do you use for brush and ink?

    This is a great sketchbook. Can't believe how much you're able to put down with so few strokes, amazing that you're able to capture your subjects so well. Really impressive. Thanks for the share and keep it updated. I've given you five.

    Grzessnik: TY! I am still a pretty terrible inker, but it has so much potential as a medium, that I'm bound to explore it further. Speaking of bamboo brushes, I just discovered this guy a few days ago, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cUzwtb8qtYw I really want one of those big bamboo brushes, Live painting on a biiig canvas like that looks REALLY fun! My last one was sumi ink and dip pen (gillott 303 nib) on a cheap canson sketchpad. Bristol is a little better for nibs though, the paper doesn't tear with the nib as much.
    JPW: Thanks! I guess I've learned that what makes a "good" drawing is one where the lines/shapes/values relate to each other well. Whether you take 5 seconds, 5 minutes, or 5 days, as long as the elements relate well, you've got a good drawing! Cheers!

    Really great one.
    Speaking of bamboo, i thought about bamboo stick cut slant. I suppose, you'll like this tool . Bamboo brushes from link are great, but i prefer watercolor brushes (sable or squirrel). They are more flexible. I've tried work with sumie brush, but i can't control it.
    Thanks for your works.

    Grzessnik, Danny K: Thanks Guys! I have a giant stack of newsprint building up in my corner from this sketchbook alone! There are layers going back chronologically to the new year, and I decided to peek slowly down to the bottom to see my progress. It's funny how you can't always feel yourself changing from hour to hour, or week to week... but when you start looking back over months, you can really see the difference! It's both humbling and encouraging knowing that the hard work is having an effect (albeit slower than I'd like , )! Speaking of.. gotta' draw!

    Grzessnik: Naahhh I'm not a master yet. So you know, you don't have to post here EVERY day... lol You might just ask a question every once and a while and I can answer for the benefit of other readers here.. That is much more useful to everyone than continuous praise and attaboys'. Thanks for your interest though! Your comments are greatly appreciated!
    Frank Gressie: TY! I'm really trying to control my line weight more lately, keeping my firm/soft/dark lines on parts of the form facing away from the light and my sharp/light lines on parts facing the light.

    Congratulations, uncle Colin!

    In this last one, I like the way you pulled her away from the drapery using contrast. Nice drawing.

    I haven't left a comment in here is a while, but I check it almost every day. It's hard, because I want to say something, but all that I have is praise and nothing constructive really. But I figured I may as well throw some ass pats every now and then your way--you certainly deserve it. Your stroke economy is astounding!

    I really like the long poses you have going on here too, and I was thinking of your style when at life drawing last time. I have yet to try a master copy after you, but I was definitely keeping in mind a bit of your handling of line and charcoal. Maybe it's not so apparent though haha. I would really appreciate it if you could stop by my sketchbook and give me suggestions though, since I am changing my approach and using charcoal for the first time more seriously.

    PS: Congrats on becoming an uncle!

    conniekat8: TY!
    p sage: TY! I'm looking forward to it!
    Andrew Sonea: TY! I don't mind the positive comments, after a while though, you just don't know how to respond to the same thing over and over again, lol. I really appreciate questions and critiques. That stimulates my mind more, and I think in the end it helps people who might be curious about the same things. I have to be honest, I think there's a bit of a plague of that kind of thing going on in these forums... people just endlessly dropping the "I love this" post, without providing any information behind it (guilty as charged ). I understand that this is a time issue for most, but me, I'm after information, and that comes through questioning and continuous refinement of our mental models. I want to know why something is good (or how to make it better), rather than just know that it's good for some unknown reason... By the way, I meant no ill will to Grzessnik, he has been really generous with his input here.

    How about this then? I like this recent drawing because the economic, triangular, almost angry strokes set an intense mood. There's no ambiguity. And you did it in 5 minutes

    Colin congrats on becoming an uncle.

    I think you have right. It should be something constructive in posts. It should help people who posting their works on forum learn something new or rethink their approach.

    I have one question. You work usually with broad strokes for building mass and thin lines for contours. Have you tried work only with thin line? With fountain pen or something. It changes way you think about form. There is no way to mark masses quick and add contours defining figure. I'm asking because i don't remember works like this in your thread.

    Keep going

    psage: Thanks man! That's exactly what I'm talking about! What's great is I hadn't thought of the angular/angry nature of the strokes when I drew yesterday's image, but it totally makes sense! Now that I'm conscious of it, I can try to apply the idea to other drawings. I would've never seen that if someone only said, "I like it."
    Grzessnik: Thanks! I'm glad you agree,... will make for more interesting dialogue here. I do work with a nib & dip pen like in today's post. I wouldn't say I only use thin line for contour when working with charcoal. A lot of my lines are soft or firm lines depending on where they are on the figure, and I'm not sure if I'm understanding you, but you can definitely define your contours well with ink, even make them quite gestural. Heinrich Kley is a great example of a flowing, gestural style of inking. http://www.heinrich-kley.com/ He frequently worked from imagination too, which blows my mind, lol! It definitely changes the way you think about form though.. By the way, you can still make a line "soft" with ink by breaking the line up into tiny sections, that way when you back up from the image, the broken line takes on a grayed appearance. You can also mass forms with thin line, but it takes longer because you have to hatch in the values. Check out how Kley does that, you can get a wide range of darker greys if you have the dexterity. (something I definitely don't have yet, lol). Cheers!

    Thanks for link. It is incredible style.
    I was curious, how you make gesture drawings with pen. I think gesture should be made quick and loose. I'm trying to do it but it is very difficult. Make figure dynamic with few strokes is a challenge. So, when i'm drawing a gesture it is a lot of unnecessery lines, because i try to catch right pose.
    I know, line can change, but it's a lot easier to start from mass and catch pose in a moment. With lines it is longer process, thats all.
