    some sketches I did yesterday at the Jan op De Beeck workshop, they are done on a 20-25minute deadline so some of them like the Amanda Seyfried sketch I would like to render out once I get the time.

    Just purchased Manga Studio 5, my cousin suggested I give it a try. It's cheap and pretty much everything I want from a digital painting and sketching tool. So far I'm loving it.

    here's my Braxton Gaither sketch (he's a member here)

    R-K: thanks man, appreciate it, love your work

    Care: thanks. With more ambitious do you mean more divers subject matter or just a bigger project? Personally I have the feeling that I learn faster by doing many short projects, in my case as many portraits as possible, rather then just working for weeks at the same thing.

    As I just bought Manga Studio 5 it is my intention to add more digital stuff as well as keep up the traditional media posts...

    You should give it a go. Buy Titanium white, Ivory Black and Burnt Sienna (student quality like Van gogh will do just fine), a few hog bristle brushes (2 will do, keeping dark and light tones seperated), Gesso and Turpentine. Rip a Cardboard box appart, put a few layers of gesso on it (with a large cheap brush) and let that dry. Use sandpaper to make the surface smooth (else it can destroy your brushes) and start sketching. It's fun and you can get a lot out of those 3 colors. Afterwards I clean my brushes with White Spirit and then with soap and hang them upside down in water.

    check out what this guy gets out of that palette

    totally awesome

    To tell you the truth, I feel like a complete noob and the better I get the more humbled I am by the work of others. It's like it requires skill to truely recognize skill and to recognize the distance to get there. When I look around at the skill level of others I almost drown in feelings of frustration and doubt.
    For me right now the most difficult part of a painting or a drawing is starting one, those first marks, the big desicions, the shape, the flow, the gesture. So I start as many as possible so that it gets easier, makes me learn faster, make the better decisions faster.

    Now I do agree that I should probably do some portfolio pieces, something that I can be proud of and that looks finished. I was thinking on doing a detailled live model portrait pencil render one of these days. I think I'm ready for that as I have a fair amount of pencil experience. As for painting I'm just to new to it to be making anything that is of somewhat respectable level, I lack the knowledge and experience. In a few years from now maybe. Right now I have to discover it all, learn to play with values and chroma, make fast rough blockins with confident brushstrokes, one after another... learn learn learn...

    cheers man

    PS: I heard it was more like 4 years

    I feel like you could exagerate abit more on the darkest shadows, to bring some of the features out, i notice the neck looks a tad flat. Still, amazingly done, so kudos!

    Yeah I know what you mean, I kindo rushed it and fucked up, that and I lack practise and knowledge. I often feel like I should do some simple shading exercises, like shaded spheres, and just practise pushing form back and forth. I've learned through observation which makes me an ok portrait artist but when doing caricature there's so much you have to fill in yourself, there's far more design involved. I really need to start doing focussed exersises so I get more comfortable with creating 3d form. Not to long ago everything I did was flat, I feel like it keeps getting better every day but it's still far from where I want it to be.

    Very nice work, man! I like your hatching and the way you define form in your drawings. Very inspiring.

    Hi!
    I love the nose and the hazy eyes on your newest pic, it gives it a moodsetter look!
    Regardless, i think you are pretty much amazing. And ,umm, i'd love it if you did some exercises, it would give me more to admire.

    Yeah I've been wanting to practise facial expresions, probably do some this weekend. I'm totally not used to drawing exaggerated expressions. I'm used to drawing at an art academy with a model that sits still for hours, not exactly ideal practise if I ever want to work parties with my caricature skills. I need to develop a more cartoonish style so I can start doing some live work.

    cheers and thanks for stopping by

    I remember doing that when i was still at my animation school. which wasnt really that much animation, or that much art. But we did do those nude studies twice. I,eh, remember it well, i've never felt so uncomfortable in my life, it was the whole having skipped most of the term and just suddenly hearing about it with no preparation and sitting there like a fool.

    Hmm, your art is great. But...i guess if it would appeal more commercially if it was abit more cartoony and comical.

    mhm, I can't wait to see your weekend studies

    Lol, I've been drawing nude models for many years, you get used to it quite fast if you're doing that sort of thing on a weekly basis. I remember a long time ago we were drawing one of the models at the academy, this cool crazy guy who models at the academy full time, he's actually a neighbour of mine, and he was hanging there naked up side down from a trapezium and a bunch of chains attache to the ceiling (yeah we had some crazy shit in our class). Anyway he sees one of the new students is quite uncomfortable and he asks her very casually, "did you see my left nut anywhere, I think I just lost it", cracked me up completely


    here's a self portrait I did yesterday, still trying to find an appealing digital style, so far I'm not happy with the looks of these digital works. Maybe the next one I'll just paint instead of hatch.
