    Your lines are so clean and beautiful. I love the way you use line weight! How long have you been drawing? Great start and looking forward to more.

    Thanks, I've been drawing and painting on and off since 2000, but didn't start with this particular type of pen drawing until a year and a half ago. The line quality is literally just a result of drawing straight lines on a piece of paper for half an hour every day for 18 months.

    Some Mark Molnar style character thumbs, sketch for a painting idea I've had since forever, and some plant studies.

    Hey! Just replying so a) I'll receive sketchbook updates, and b) to say that your control of form and the quality of your line is absolutely sick. Really great studies!

    ^ Also, like Zenichi said, I'd like to know what you're using.

    Thanks guys. I use a whole bunch of different stuff depending on what I feel like and what is closest to hand, to be honest. My favourite pen is a .35 rotring rapidograph, but they give zero variation in line weight and tend to leak and otherwise misbehave. I mainly use it for hard surface stuff, the last 2 pages of tech stuff were drawn with that.
    For felt tips I use copic multiliners (great, fragile, expensive), Faber Castell PITT artist pens in dark sepia and black (great, sturdy, relatively cheap) and the occasional staedtler (nasty, nasty, but cheap). The copics draw pretty similarly to the rotring, the FC is what I use for most organic forms.
    Any white gel pen will do, or if you get white gouache I'd recommend getting artist quality as it's easier to work with.
    I use Letraset markers and I bunch of old, cool grey magic markers I still have lying around (don't get those, they suck).
    That's my complete materials breakdown. And use smooth paper or you'll ruin your pens faster than you can buy them.

    Didn't have much time to do any sketching this week. Tried to do a line sketch in Olivier Bisson's style and kind of failed so decided to colour it following this tutorial instead. Don't like the workflow but figured out some things about faking messy in Photoshop. I should also stop drawing people in broken–legged poses. And some crappy portraits to try and shake off the rust.

    Hopefully back to drawing on paper next week.

    I cant stop looking at the pen stuff, the eagles, specifically the inverted one and upgraded chicken legs, the equipment, the plant growth, great work! ...also, I agree perspective IS for suckers, and "I've got little birdie legs" I cant wait to see more!

    @MihailTopalov Read my previous post, please.

    In order of appearance:
    quick figure study to try and get back into shape some more, I haven't really painted much in ages;
    in the interest of showing the good and the bad, a sucky art test (I really need to get better at environments);
    the usual drawings.

    what kinds of pens and colours do you use? amazing work
    edit: saw your reply above, for some reason I missed it before. how do your markers come out light without bleed as though they're watercolour markers if you just use regular ones?

    Notche Thanks!

    Rosemont I'm not sure I understand your question. If you're asking why my marker strokes have crisp edges, I suppose it's because I work very fast with them. Don't worry too much about where you put them and work in confident strokes. If you need to follow an edge use the reverse of the chisel tip for fine work, then switch to chisel to quickly block in the rest. If you're fast enough the marker strokes bleed together.

    Life hasn't been too pleasant so I've lapsed a bit with art, trying to get back into things with some pencil doodles. Weapons loosely inspired by Guild Wars 2.

    I love the strong sense of a 3D form in your work! Even the more finished pieces despite being detailed manage to maintain that basic structure beneath.

    Getting back into ZBrush, another colour study (5hrs AKA way too long, no idea where the photo's from), some doodles for a friend of what Tali might look like (I tried to make her unappealing, I doubt he's pleased), trying to make my photo studies more stylised, and more of the usual.

    fantastic volume in your pen work. So pretty.
    I'm a big sucker for trees, and I love the organic shapey-things in your first post.

    Cojac & Gyvulius Thanks!
    foxdi Haha. Thanks, but no way. He draws that stuff from his head, I'm just doing photo studies.

    Had to rethink some things a bit and accidentally ended up taking a break. Onward and upwards.
    Some crappy portrait exercises trying to get to grip with my much hated enemy the soft brush;
    some environment doodles to blow off steam;
    2 things for the daily spitpaint group on fb that I went over time with, might finish the first one, had fun with it;
    more warmup alien head things;
    2 colour studies, blue one was a lot of fun but also kind of a lot of work.

    Been too busy to get a lot done. 2 spitpaints with a little bit of extra work put in, some more warmup heads, and the annual art test bonanza.

    I love your pencil studies, the people at Feng Zhu school do something similar every day, it is really good for increasing the visual library I think.
