ooo nice update. very nice figure drawings as always, but I must say I like the two illustrations (not sure if you consider them illustrations) alot. That first one is really cool; I like the composition you used, very flowing. The more I look at it as well the more I notice; really nice amount of detail you put into it. The second is great as well, I like how you used the simplified shapes to show structures in the background. great stuff man, keep em comin!
i agree, it's really cool to see these pen sketches. i only recently (like last week) found a pen i like, and i'm getting into doing pen stuff too.
the anatomy is slightly off on your latest sketches but it really doesn't bother me that much. the illustrations are very very good...the looseness and simplicity (yet they're still detailed, if that makes sense...) really is a strong point.
I'll attempt a fisheye again one of these days. The last one I tried almost short circuited my brain. After the mindset that all parallel lines must be straight and meet at the vanishing point, the curved perspective lines threw me off.
The bridge perspective one is great... but are the people the correct size? I normally do quick guide lines about 1.8m (6ft) tall all over the scene first. And still occasionally get the midget in the foreground or the giant in the distance.
Onir - Thanks. I used this long shape on the background to improve the composition. I'm glad to hear it worked.
hpslashluvr - These sketches were mindless. I didn't care much about anatomy. Just loose flow of creativity which I like sometimes .
glikster - Thanks. Well... I wasn't going in any direction with the bottom left guy .
machzero - Thanks. At the beggining I sketched only man on the right. (this one with big hat) Later I decided to add whole scene so there can be some perspective issues.
Sorry for no update and no comments in sketchbooks. I had exams and lot's of problems so I couldn't concentrate on drawing anything. Here are some mindless doodles with pen. I will do some serious studies tomorrow.

hehe very nice doodle sheet, always love seeing what people can come up with. I like the ideas you have here, seems like you can vary between things nicely (i.e. you have really nice figure stuff, but you also have creatures and perspective and things; nice variety). I like the way you assembled the guy with the claws at the bottom, looks cool. keep it up man! I understand about the exams and such, getting a crapload of work here as well, so yea just update when you can.
Really nice characters there on the first pic of the last update! I really apperciate ppl who can create form that loosely with ink, I can not. They are my favs here!!! Especially the guy top right, totally fluent and not stiff!!!
Your figure drawings with pen are wicked, I really like em. My last sketches are with ballpoint pen, and you are right, feels more relaxing and free. Figure thumbnails are cool man. Keep up d good work.
Onir - Thanks! glikster - Learning skulls is good for drawing faces so I draw them as much as possible. machzero - Thanks, man. The sawtooth is a bit simplified but I will try to draw it more realistic. Hiipi - These are from book with ink drawings so it's not my form . Thanks anyway . hpslashluvr - Thanks. jtheanswer - Hehe. I see that my ink fun is infectious. Thanks for dropping by. thirdeye - Thanks. I noticed that it also improved a little my pencil skills.
I wanted to practise drawing clothes so I sketched few figures from some "How to draw manga" book. I doubt if I learned something but at least I tried
Heads sketched with brush pen. With this tool I have to be even more careful so it's good for practicing confidence.

nice clothing studies...
I want to get a brush pen, but the closest art store is downtown... I have to take a lunch break one of these days...
I've been trying to get my head around perspective and I don't think I have it yet... can you give a simple step-by-step or something about setting up perspective. As far as I can tell, one-point perspective is very narrow, tunnel-vision like. Two-point is more realistic, since when you look around there are the two dimensions that are usually parallel (like the sides of a house). And three-point is keeping in mind all three dimensions, since you take into account the z-axis (or y-axis, depending on your point-of-view)
cool update man; always love textured brushes like that in photoshop, they look so cool haha. though it's not perfect anatomy or anything (would expect it especially from a doodle), I really like the way you did it. the way you varied the planes of the face is really nicely done, and the eyes look great. cool stuff man keep it up
I just saw your perspective tutorial as well; thanks man! hehe gonna definitely read through it
Yeah, the last one is... the first I like
I think, that it's better for U not to make such hard contour, but as in Your last picture, try to put some walues. Second advice: make Your sketches little bigger and give up those details... look for form not for watch on somebody's hand
hey man nice updates, I like the poses and those heads have really nice variations. I see what you mean on the ears, so yea keep workin at it, they look cool otherwise. Nice speedy in open canvas as well, I like the varying brush strokes/types you used.
Onir - Thanks, man. hpslashluvr - Thanks for crit. I'll try to push darks in future paintings. You're right about the mouth. I always place it too low . machzero - I like this technique beacause I don't have to concetrate on vanishing points. Just pure construction of enviroment . ~Faust~ - Thanks
Today I sketched from some polish casting site. It has lot's of face photos . Good for practicing main proportions but I too small for detailed study. Here's the address if someone's interested: http://www.casting.wroc.pl/?g=wszyscy
Hand studies. I have still don't have confident line. I wonder when will I improve in this
