    Hey there! thanks for posting! I liek your style, a real broad base and thin details! It looks really cool! Id like to see a bit more finished works tho, and see how that turns out.

    check out Sinx he is a great digital painter and helped my technique out a lot!

    Thanks for commenting on my Sketchbook. Are you using photos underneath the drawing? if so I would recommend to use them only as a reference on how understand shapes, lighting and perspective because just copying is not going to help that much. I'm no expert I'm just repeating what I hear, really but you are doing fine, I like how you did the chap from 30 Rock.

    Actually i don't use photos underneath, i keep them on a separate window to the side of the workplace... Sometimes the color is off so i have to use the ink spotter tool
    From time to time. Thanks for the comments, much appreciated!

    Hey, thank you for dropping by my thread. I like the landscape, it just works quite well.
    I think you should defintely grab pencil and sketchbook and draw stuff you see! Paint digitaly as much as you want, but drawing and painting from life will make you develop.

    cheers

    Hey hey grey.
    Congrats on the rather new sketchbook. It shows potential and you're clearly having fun with this Here's my two cents; Lots of accurate reference studies, be repetitive about it, too. If you're studying an arm, make a hundred drawings. After a hundred everything you get a million times better.

    Peace and keep it up

    some work here looks really interesting!
    I just recommend you to be more careful with the anatomy, try to "construct" everything you draw after a preliminary sketch.. for example the "mitosis/meiosis" it seems that the guys didnt have bones..try some references (or study loomis?) for help !

    Have a nice day! and keep posting!
