sdblu: Wow that looks great! No problem, if it inspired you to create something out of my work then I'm happy
Just thought I would check out the SB and see how things are going. Glad to see you are posting again. I hope that everything is well. If you want to go sketch sometime, let me know. Later...
Sorry for my lack of contribution but my focuses have been shifted lately. I have not picked up my pencils for almost 2 years now. So I'm a bit out of practice. I couldn't really bring myself to do any human anatomy type drawings so I relapse back to what I started drawing as a young child, animals. I have a great love for nature and it's creatures so I decided to put a bit of focus in both these drawings. I'm sorry for the horrible photos, I tried to doctor them up as best I could in CS3. But I don't have a scanner anymore...much less one that is this large. Both of these are drawn in my sketchbook.
Progression photos of my new study. Sorry for the quality this was shot off my cellphone.
Hey man, your pencil sketches are very cool. Gotta agree with Fellah, post up more babes.
Some of your pencils are hard to read. In PS if you go to image : adjustments : auto levels.. you'll be able to make the images darker. You can also then take it into brightness / contrast and make it nice.
Nice update with the pencilssketches
Often scanning messes them up - happens to me also - good idea to give them a touchup in PS. The originals allways look better, scaninng and jpg will always kill them a bit, but some practice and you can get pretty close. With the first one i would remove the black shadow in the corner - takes the eyes away from the girl.
The drawings look fine dude. I like them. The thick black outline works well on them - maybe because of the light shading you use. You got the anatomy down pretty solid on these (the second girl has too small feet, which makes her head seem very big, but its small time stuff). You have a good understanding of making the female form sexy - and that is good
I really like the elf with the bow and arrow. Nice job. Did you ink the drawings before using photoshop? If you do, I think they will come out much cleaner. I really like them though. You may want to do some studies on landscapes as well (not that I am that good). The mountains in particular, but they do have a nice feel of being further away which I like. Otherwise, nice stuff.
Niva: Thanks man! Good to hear from you I honestly didn't even think people would be looking at this SB anymore lol. It's been almost 2 years since I've updated it. I've got back into my drawing for now but who knows when I'll be stopping again.
ooHe0Eejem1: Thanks for stopping by There are a huge range of sketches from me here, it's a culmination of over 6 years of stuff from me. I hope you like the current stuff, I don't draw too much now but I'm still updating from time to time. I'll get back to the women in a while, right now I'm focusing on nature and animals, which is what I started out drawing as a child. I'm always trying to improve with each piece. Thanks for your comments
Ok a small update to the Green Sea Turtle. I've been rendering the fin and it's been quite fun. I'll have another update after the weekend maybe.
Another update to my turtle:
Loathsome: Thanks for taking the time to look at my stuff
Some more updates on the Sea Turtle:
Started to work away at the background...not too sure how long I've been working on this but I'm estimating about 5 hours so far.
Sorry for the crappy photos. I promise a higher quality photo of the finished version.
I didn't get very far on this update. I'm trying to make up a coral reef from a variety of ref's. The challenge is trying to get all the details in there without letting the main subject be blending into the background.
victoria stiles: Thank you very much for the kind words I haven't shared anything with CA for a long time. Glad you like them!
Another update to the turtle. I'm getting closer to the finish mark!
Ok here's the finished version.
THis is mind blowingly good work DC, glad to see you're posting again. I really wish you would use good full sized paper, esp for something like this.
Either way, please keep up with the posting.
Niva: Thanks man! I know I haven't been around all that much but I'm getting a few pieces done here and there Always great to hear from you!
A quick one this time. About 4.5 hours, graphite (of course). I drew this with a partial purpose of making a timelapse vid. I haven't finished putting the vid up yet but it will be on my Youtube page eventually.
Jason, nice to see you back man, and like your latest work. This is my first visit in months, and haven't posted since June 2011. Series of events prevented this, burst hernia etc, put me in hospital and out of action for quite a bit, but all good now. I had the time, but not the motivation, I just haven't been able to get back into it. Picked up pencils, two minutes and chucked 'em back in the box! Actually did my first complete sketch yesterday, might post it later, not sure. Now I've got off my arse and taken the first step, I might be able to get going again. Anyway, as I said, great to see you back mate. I noticed the date on your last post 12/11, you haven't gone missing again have you?
PS She's still on the wall

Please check my SB and crit, I need help.
Wow man! Much has changed since HS. Your drawing has really become awesome. Give me a call some time. We should hang out. Take care...
Amazing works, Keep it up your pencil works.
I really like it...
Thanks for sharing them.
Not every one can become a great artist,
A great artist can come from every where.
Greetings All! I apologize I'm not doing much artwork these days. Not really feeling it. But I did do a digital. So I'll post it. To doncam, Masayasu and tiny1890 thank you for visiting! Appreciate your comments.
This is my car done as a vector with CS3. About 30 hours worth of work and over a thousand layers. I probably could have consolidated the layers but I'm not that experienced when it comes to vector drawing.
