    I like your clean lines a lot they have their own unique mark to them, but at the same time you still keep depth and form in mind. Plusssss you paint awesomely too!!

    @viki oh - thanks a lot, yeah I'm in love with clean lines as much as I like full renderings, It's easy to get stuck on just beautiful line art though as painting is a relative but different skill

    Finished the car, about 10-11 hours, lots of experimentation

    After watching one documentary about Frazetta, and kinda going back to look at his stuff, something I didn't do for a while, I found some of his pencil and pen sketches most inspiring.
    Here's a little copy of the master, fastest way to learn what makes a great drawing great, imo

    kuumehike - Thanks a lot!

    GEB - Thanks! I find that at this point, only creating really tight lines can make me understand exactly what's gonna happen with the shadows and stuff once I paint, any unresolved area causes trouble later

    Okay, so, in order to improve I do tons of copies of artwork I like. I believe this method is the most important for rapid improvement. Why? Because not only you get a variety of poses and stuff for your 'mind library' but more importantly, you learn to represent that which you see or imagine, in the way great artists do. I feel like while nature teaches us correct proportions, master artists teach us design, and design is what makes art so unique and fun to look at, at least, in my opinion.

    Here's some studies of artwork I saw and liked, a couple by Michael Hampton, which is a figure drawing hero in my opinion, his book is my bible. And the rest by Frazetta of course, whose sketches and inks really inspire me lately.

    I love your figure paintings. Great job! I like the way you block the shapes. I'm trying to do this and stop blending too much. I wish you could give me some help in my WIP in my sb.

    The frazetta stuff looks really fun and I can imagine it to be very helpful.

    Those studies and cars are excellent. However, I suggest you study old space shooters when it comes to spacecraft design.

    Your studies are top notch as is your car painting. The Frazetta style stuff is definitely my favourite, I haven't looked at his stuff for years, looks like it's time to revisit.

    cheers.

    F87 - Thank you sir, coloring them as we speak
    untier - Hey! Thanks a lot, seems like you're my first friend on CA
    Cojac - Thanks a lot, sure I'll take a look and see if I can think of anything useful to say.
    shockowaffel - Thanks for the compliments!
    FightingSeraph - Thanks! I'd love to have a more specific reference of the spacecraft designs you speak of
    fireblade - Hey there! Thanks a lot, yea Frazetta was really a master. Do a quick google sketch for 'frazetta sketch' his gestural ink work is effing amazing

    Guys I'm trying to go back and check out the sketchbooks of the guys who comment here however sometimes I forget n' shit. Feel free to remind me!

    Here's early stages of painting one of the sketches above, I feel like rendering the big shapes is rather easy, I always struggle with the smaller details, anybody got an idea on what to use as inspiration for little mechanical parts?

    Wow, I really love the movement and colors in the car on #63. All of your work, in fact, has such great movement, sweeping curves, and interesting angled lines.

    I believe ccsears has a few posts later in his sketchbook thread where he was taking a mechanical design illustration class. It looks like focusing on automotive and industrial parts can definitely give inspiration. You might also check out airplane cutaways.
