    Inspiration comes from the oddest things, I swear: ivy up a tree trunk? Okay! More branches...well, she's still in the process of turning into a tree, so that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it! Yes, I'm going to colour her! We'll see how far I get...maybe I'll post it in your Digital Paint thread, eh? Been awhile! Finished ink:

    that's a good excuse. she does look a bit too friendly, but guess that's your specialty.. I wonder what Fellah would draw that as if he was given the same topic.. that would be interesting.. heh..

    it's looking good, love the long hair.. oo oh yeah that digital thread, hehe it's kinda died down. and your animal thread too.. we'll probably pick up where we left off down the track, I am sure of it.. *I think*

    I better stop spamming.. meh look forward to the *finished* coloured piece. btw great way to kick off page 8.

    The Hick's Point of View

    Very nice. I enjoy how you countered the hips being thrust out with the hair falling the other way. It makes her look svelt and massive (like a tree trunk) at the same time.

    I look forward to seeing it painted.

    I'll be at more life drawings in the near future now that life has settled into a sembalance of routine. And yeah, tree forts, ground forts / castles, trebuchet for nerf balls, etc. would be great to see.

    bumskee - Thanks! Well, Digital Paint hasn't died actually - people are still posting you know! Are dryads supposed to be nasty? Hmm...a Fellah dryad...that would be interesting! Good feminine practice for him!

    Carnifex - hehe, thanks! I like swooshie.

    Kentucky - okay - we'll see about the tree forts. Trebuchets?? I ain't no weapons designer!

    Eye practice today. Top half Hogarth, bottom half me exploring.

    I agree with Carnifex, very nice studies indeed.

    And weapon design is easy for children. Does or can it be used to beat upon brothers or sisters? Then parent's P.O.V. will it serious maim or hurt the child? If the answer is yes for the first and no for the second, it's a good weapon design.

    That fat kid - aw, why that name? Thank you for your kind comments. I really don't feel worthy of it, but thank you! And I most certainly intend to keep drawing! Stop?? Why on earth would I do that?

    bumskee - I actually like Hogarth - mainly because he is so stylized, it's easy to see the form. Naturally I wouldn't draw like that all the time, but it's good study!

    Carnifex - thanks! Always fun with faces!

    Kentucky - ah. I'll keep that in mind.

    Fellah - yay! Can't wait to see it! And thank you - more often than not I feel like a colouring book artist compared to everyone else.

    Skrunchey - yeah, you and me both. I still have my old sketchbooks around...lined paper, yuck. Back when I felt 'looser' drawing on lined than blank. Whatever!

    More face study - top row from the bus. Unfortunately, my bus is VERY scarcely populated early in the mornings, so not a lot of opportunities for drawing...unless I want to be glared at...some Hogarth, and more experimentation...yuck...I need to study more!

    Faces have this advantage that they don't take too much space on the piece of paper
    Good job with last ones. Hope to see more experiments.

    The Hick's Point of View

    Nice studies.

    Think I'll try doing eyes now and see how that goes.

    Anyway, nothing really to crit beyond the bottom right face seems like the eyes are too big for the face or the face is too elongated from the eyes to the cheeks.

    Like the rendering you've got going there.

    just a quick note about the dryad-
    I like her design and the composition but it lacks some organic variations that would help a lot. For examples the finger-branches have a nice organic shape but no overlaps. The ivy leaves have some overlaps but each leaf is the same angle and direction- they don't follow the form or the natural growth patterns of real ivy. The flowers have nice variation but feel generic in shape and structure. Even something stylized or cartoony needs a basis in reality to connect with the viewer. Just a little more research on the floral elements could take a design like this to the next level - my 2 cents.

    That fat kid - well, more often than not they don't know why you're staring at them - they just think you're being rude. oh well! And thanks!

    Farvus - oh, you will...I suck at them so much, I HAVE to keep practicing!

    Kentucky - yes...that face is messed up. Her nose is too long, her eye is wonky (thanks Carnifex, I saw that), and her mouth and chin are squished together. Yuck. I need to practice more...

    artkitty - thanks for the 2cents! You're right of course - it's perfect staging for animation, but for a still...well...and yes, the ivy is flat - I will disagree with you though, on the growth pattern up the trunk. I have seen ivy doing just that, which is what made me think of this in the first place. I should have made it more 'bushy' at the bottom though...thanks again! I appreciate it!

    vigostar - more hogarth, actually! He does a whole series on the aging of the head - very cool! I have a hard time with baby proportions, so you'll probably see more...

    Carnifex - yes I did! I'm practicing, I'm practicing! Humans don't come as naturally to me as animals, you know!

    I saw this week's COW, and I couldn't resist! Here are some EXTREMELY loose sketches...

    An-n-n-d my C.O.W.! I haven't submitted it yet - I'd be first! I'm purposefully leaving it mostly black and white - unless ya'll can convince me that colour would be oh-so much more desirable... Nah... Also, so ya'll can tell me if I screwed up majorly somewhere and should fix it.

    i would indeed suggest you add colours. most people like it better,and tbh i also think it's currently alittle boring. i suggest warm greys and cool yellows for the bg.
    i'm in love with the dryad pic. most of all with the thumbnail,because the pose is even abit better there. it seems less human than the semi-finished one,which i like better.

    Hello, Teigrob. Looked at your book with a great interest. Your anatomy studies (bones ,muscles , knee studies) are something. I will be back to look at them again. Your nudes looked so unique, I didn't see anything like your nudes before.
    Like tree's girls a lot, in my opinion it might have a commercial success. It's very decorative, I can see plates, trays, dishes or tapestry made on a base of your drawings.
    My favorites in animation personages - very feminine Pakistani girl and the moose
    Regards, Sveta

    The Hick's Point of View

    Again, you do very nice work. I'm especially enjoying watching you explore different areas and trying to stretch your wings.

    The exploration of the C.O.W. is nice to see how your mind works. Seems like you had an idea and decided to run with it. I like the inking. Reminds me of some of Franzetta's work. Also the color helps sets off the black, but seems somewhat muted by the white. Perhaps Carnifex's suggestion of setting the background with warm gray of say 10% or 20%. Maybe in marker and use it as a brush in Photoshop. It also looks like you took a feather from Fellah and use horns to make the men evil.

    The dryad is looking really good. Soft, sexy, and scratchy (Sorry, I couldn't resist as barky didn't really go). I know she's not finished, but I'm curious to how the shadows on her form will fall since you've already shaded the underside of her foilage.

    The hand studies look like Hogarth's?

    I look forward to seeing more explorations of myth and creatures.

    Man you are a monster, very very creative, i draw a lot but you make me realize that i could draw more. I guess i have to brush off the old sketchbooks and "fill them up" as my teacher used to say. You-are-creative, animateable characters are the hardest to come up with for me, that's the toughest thing to do..... from my drawing experience so far.

    I really like the COW and the dryad (want see more done ugg).

    Congratulations on your new job. Like noeltaylor says your style lends to an animatable feel so your new company is the lucky one. You go girl!

    BTW: I was looking at your handy work... er HAND sketches... admiring them. Got any secrets or hints you'd like to share?

    Peace, Love and Harmony... I could never get them all into bed at the same time!

    Carnifex - thanks! Well, I did post it as-is...mostly because I hardly ever do colour, and I was afraid I'd mess it up if I tried. Oh well...

    Gloominati - you're going to have to wait a long time for those, dude! I'm an animator, not a painter!

    sve - thanks! Yeah, I get that comment about my life drawings a lot...I don't know, I can't help it! I try and be realistic, and even when I'm super realistic (by my standards) I still get "Wow, that's so stylized..." *sigh* I can't win. Commercial dryads eh? hehe...well, who knows...

    Kentucky - ogres?? I don't know about that! Yeah...maybe colour next time for the C.O.W. Yes, that was Hogarth!

    Qxzi - Thank you! I gotta keep studying though - still loads to learn!

    bumskee - hehe, thanks! So...when are you going to join the C.O.W, eh? Eh? hehehe...

    Skrunchey - hm, now that's a thought! Do they allow collaboration with cows? I wouldn't mind at all!

    noeltaylor - yes, draw more! Drawing is gooooood... That's why I like CA so much - I draw a ton more than I usually would!

    L. Scott Knight - hehe, thanks! Hints? Erm...draw a lot? That's really the whole secret right there...study, and draw a lot. Hogarth actually has some good proportional guides in his "Drawing Dynamic Hands". Otherwise...yeah.

    Finished ink on Ms. Dryad...I did a lot more overlapping! Ran out of room on the page though, that's why she stops where she does...

    Tei, is that "peer pressure"??
    Dryad is looking awsome, we are going to see this coloured right? the twist in the trunk is nicely done. oooooo
    I was wathcing anastacia(sp?) the other day, don't ask me why I was watching it but I was and usually I start whinging about the amount of singing they do. But this time around I was actually noticing all the gestures and smooth animation, body language and facials. Just reminded me of all your stuff, especially the animals.. :> love your stuff.

    The Hick's Point of View

    Nice update.

    I especially like how you ink. It looks like it is either done with varying width pens. and great job on the rendering of shadows. I'm with Bumskee on seeing this one colored.

    As for your humans, they remind me of Severus Snape sucking on a lemon. And the children look nice as well.

    The wolf creature reminds me of Scar from The Lion King, most specifically from the top right one.

    Nothing to really crit this time around.

    Great job.
