Lynayru. Thank you very much! Really appreciate it.
Ninaren. Thank you very much. Your comment made my day too! Well i've been drawing even long before God created the universe...but only been doing concept art since 2010, been into comic sketching since 2004! Gave up art in between to pursue music but unfortunately no one had my taste for music and btw you can't make a living singing Death Metal here!
Hey! Glad you're keeping this well updated The last few posts look really gruesome. I'm with you on the color struggle, it really doesn't come naturally to me either. I guess reading up on color theory and practice is the way to do it. Go well!
Ceddo. Just realized i don't even know the actual colors of the rainbow!!! Time for some serious study...Thank you buddy for dropping by and oh, belated birthday greetings!
A few updates.
Showing some friends a couple of things.
It was really cool to see some friends doing quick gesture studies, which inspired me to go back to basics again, but with a little twist this time....decided to sketch em with my LEFT hand! It all started a couple of years ago when i fractured my arm the first time (out of 3 so far) playing soccer! Funny how you end up breaking your hands playing a games with your leg!
A speedy Gonzales painting...i was really bored!

Oh wow, your line-work is so intricate and dynamic. Very inspiring. I would suggest adding more hues in skin tones, (well, I guess in clothes too) when you're rendering in color, just to bring a little more life and another level of intricacy. Have you experimented with different colored light sources too?
Whimsnicole: Thank you very much friend. Really appreciate it. This actually wasn't even 5% in but thanks for the advice. Yes i will be working on a different color light source, hope it all turns out well in the end.
And here's another crop of a w.i.p that i was forced to stall for some client work (also because i was pissed off with the anatomy ), but i'm back at it again. Must finish this soon.

Although i've made a lot of progress on this i thought i'd share an earlier stage of this image because of its graphic nature! There's a bit of a narrative to this piece & i've deliberately left out a few compositional elements here since i'm still trying to figure it out. Find this quite challenging because unlike the usual detailing i'm used to, i'm trying something more minimalistic this time.
omg I'm speechless... your art is AWESOME. and you are self-taught. very very cool dude. can't get enough of it. especially your creature/monster designs and that detail in each piece of artwork. really mind-blowing. keep up the good work.
Visited this sketchbook again and you have so much detail in your pieces it felt as if I was seeing all this stuff for the first time. It wasnt until I saw the self portrait that I was like "oh yeah, that guy!" Hmm I have a question actually, when you were starting out did you study a lot of comics and illustration?
