Qxzi: Thanks man! Had a great christmas.. hope you had a good time as well!
nOfish: Hehe Good call.. I know the ear is a little flat... I'll do some more work on it eventually. It was from a photo.
Shin: I was a hairs width from going musashi on him, I'm tellin' ya... hehe... All good now though Need to see the gun next time I see ya on MSN Thanks for the props, and the crit on the hair! Some information was lost in the photo, but your still right I'll see what I can do with it.
TFK: HAhah Nah... I think he'd be offended with the holy/halo-comparison..haha... I'll knock it back so it won't look like it. Thanks!
Pencilator: Tjena! Yeah... we are pretty like. It's 50cm x 70cm I think..hehe
Happy newyears to yerself! How are things with your gf? Walkin' on clouds and all that good stuff, I hope?
Thanks for hanging with me, guys! Got my scanner (amazingly enough) today, so I scanned some pages that I've done lately... More coming up tomorrow or the day after..
DUUUUDDDE your bro´s portrait is off the freaking hook man!!!
you gave some really nice hightlights on that one, the ear looks
slightly flat, but aside that dam! I nearly falled down my chair dude!
Last update is looking good too man, legs mucles are dam hard
keep doing those, dont give up!!! happy new year cabron!!
Fat Kid: Thanks for the props, man! I enjoyed doing those creatures a lot
Qxzi: Thanks a bunch! Always happy for kind words!
Petter: Tjena! Glad you like the spidergirl.. Update coming on her soon!
Mindflaw: Heheh..k.. in that case; thanks for the props
maxetormer: hola cabron! Bueno nuevo año a tu tambien! Thanks for the praise on that portrait.. I'm not worthy of it..hehe.. I'm gonna try to do more studies as well as doing the imaginative stuff.
Happy new year! I see there's no rest for the wicked, you keep on pushing yourself. You're doing good. I like the portrait of your bro, i can tell he's related to you. I think you can push that digital piece with the spider lady a lot more. the foreground is about the same value as the background, and im not quite buying the foreshortening. You should also think about what parts of the image you want blurry and which ones you want sharp. it looks a little haphazard right now.
I agree with badger, i really like where your values are going in this last piece.
Keep on rockin'!
//edit: I almost missed it, but i really like the bottom left sketch on this page, its full of life, and hit me on places i like to be touched. The character looks like sammy from the hellboy movie. Coincidence?
Hey man, nice to see that you're not taking any holidays
Haha, that's so true, I'm puffing around on pink clouds. Can't complain.
I must agree, your values and rendering are getting tight. I love the core shadow on those faces. Yummy.
I must ask, do you change the contrast after you've scanned your pages?
Badger: Hey furry striped-one! Thanks for the kind words and the tip! Skype you soon!
Slash: Sorry about the touching man... got a little frisky.. You know... I watched Hellboy not too long ago, so that might very well be influenced by Sammael..hehe.. About the spidergirl; thanks for the crits! I'm basically slopping shit around as of yet.. I'll definately keep your comments in mind when I take it further!
That fat kid: You were totally right about the dude with the headdress.. I've corrected it now, but I didn't care to update for it.. thanks for the crit and the kind words!
Pencilator: Haha..like Slash said; no rest for the wicked! I'm not about to slow down at all... hopefully I'll see some good progress this year, and if I'm going to see that, I can't slack off..heh.. Thanks for the praise, man!
About the contrast, no.. I don't alter it.. I do adjust the levels a bit though, because the scanner usually scans 'em too bright, so I try to make 'em look as close to the actual thing as possible... If I'm to get crits, I want the people to be able to crit from what they actually are as opposed to a photoshopped sketch Hope your year turns out productive and sweet as well!
Hey dCepT! First time I visit here, very nice sketchbook, you've shone alot of inprovment through out your posts.
now, I would mostly focus on drawing from life and doing studies if I were you, I guess you've heard that one like a thousnd times already, but it can not be repeated too often. It would improve your concept drawings and your portaits, etc alot.
The painting above is quite good, especially the colours are nice, but for example his legs look very stiff. The anatomy is missing drama and so on.
You've reached far already, keep on pushing!
