'Oh No! The horror! Yet another one of the members sketchbooks... selfpromoting bastards..'
you might think...
and yeah... I guess it is. But I really like those threads. They give an insight in how our fellow artists think and draw.. much more than the final and polished paintings do. So I for one can't get enough of those threads.
Another reason for me to start a thread of this kind is to kick myself in the b***. For the last couple of months my motivation has been really low. And I haven't really been outputting the amount of art which I usually do. I'm hoping this thread can get the old machine up and pumping again. And I think it can!
I probably won't be able to upload sketches during the weekends so I'm limiting myself to min. 5 sketches a week. Most of them will be line work, but there might be a few painted sketches in between... Who knows
oh, I don't expect comments on every single sketch but ofcause you are more than welcome to leave a say... so don't hold back!
I'm starting off today (or actually last friday) but will throw in a few sketches that most of you haven't seen before even though they are a few months old...
I like the head of the first one out of em all. I though the bottom half was going to look like the guy was jumping or falling. Nice style, and don't forget to update this puppy!

No one complains about life drawing,
so take a photo.
its easy, and will improve your piece greatly."
Cos - Hi m8! Hehe, yeah a few of them are from that b/w thread at sijun.... We sure had fun.. hehe
Jester - hehe... Yeah, that was what I was thinking some would say too...
Iwasink - thank you!
Kyri - hey! Glad you like them!
2kre8 - thanks!
Snowfly - yeah, there might be some Frank Miller in them, but the heaviest influence for me is Mignola when it comes to line art. Painted art is different and I have other favourite artists who influence me in that field.
Todays sketch.. wohoo.. a painted one! The second in the series... First one was the spiderman if u remember... This is also a concept/sketch for a oilpainting!
Today I suddenly thought about a character I created for a comic way back in 1997. I actually don't remeber what her name was, but she was VERY inspired by Mike Mignolas Hellboy and Tombraider which both were quite big at that time...
I never got around to do finished pages for the book, but I remember doing a few sketches and colored cover samples.
