Well,flipping throughyour SB, I have seen that you will be one tough competitor to beat in LMS3! good luck with that... and thanks for posting the Grand Central Academy pictures... now I'm really aching to study there! (Or with Jacob Collins!)
WHAT....THE....FUCK... have i been missing here??? Your design direction is going a nicely especially love the armor guy with the feathers n all. The one thing that still irks me is that your characters need to be a lil more relaxed. I feel like they are in a forced posture most of the time.
I want to pencil like you one day :p
Hey thanks again for the critiques. Your stuff looks great. You have improved vastely from the first page to the last. Great work! as far as critiques go i cant say much. I love the nose studies you got goin there. keep on keepin on!
hey dude! was cool seeing you today. always a treat to see fellow ca'ers out in the streets! im glad i saw you, as it compelled me to stop by your book. nice stuff overall....you are making those big strides that are so much fun to make as a student...and you seem to be enjoying it too. keep drawing. draw draw draw. you have a light hand, i envy you for that. if i were to offer you any advice, it would be to concentrate on structure and proportion, especially where it applies to head/facial features and anatomy. i think you have a good design sense, which is a huge benefit to you, but ya gotta make sure your draftsmanship can back that shit up. the only way to do that is through mileage. lots of mileage. you are on the right track. good news is, drawing shit is fun! so it doesnt have to feel like work if you dont let it ....anyhoo, im sure ill see you at the workshop, and possibly again on the streets of san francisco! be gooood !!-c36
SpaceRogue: Still have ways to go my friend, , yeah I'm having problems with creating a focal point. I have some ideas now of how I'm going to approach that. Thanks for checking out my book man.
MorteM: Colors are coming, I promise
Teh Gosu: I have to work harder though, and your right man I need more head studies, thanks for the feed back.
Kresh: haha, like I mentioned in your sb, your right on about the posture of my characters, need to make them more natural, thanks for stopping in, and thanks for updating you sb man, I'm going to need another fix soon, .
i dont know: I have plenty of areas to crit on, thanks for the compliment though, keep working hard man .
kischi: The normal looking guys are the german Volkstrum last defenders of germany right before the end, many of them died fighting to the bitter end. These were concepts I drew representing the some of them, there will be a shite load more in the future. More you shall have!
el coro: It was cool seeing you on the street, when you walked by I was talking to a some friends, I got a glimpse of you and wasn't sure it was you, but I said to myself, "that face looks familiar" so I caught up with you as you were crossing the street, man that made my day running into you, so random,. Your work is awesome and truely inspiring. Thanks for stopping in my book and sharing a few words again. If I don't see you before the workshop, I'll see you in Seattle. Your dogs are the shit btw,
HunterKiller_: Thanks man, ecroche model is 32 inches tall, so not quite 3 feet, just 4 inches shy. thanks for stopping in.
Hello fellow days inn room #1 resident. Nice character studies. The technopriest has some long legs. Those are even longer than Marko legs. Looking good other than that though. You look like you work hard. Keep it up.
It's just a nickname, still too far from being one...

Hey man, nice meeting you over at the workshop. Really digging your lines and character designs. Not to be a bummer but after that color theory talk, would be nice to see some of these rendered in the future. You have done well so far. Mr. Kevin Chen figure drawing demo would come very handy for these.
Funny stuff, I got confused in meeting your brother as well, didn't know about the twin things hehehehe. Oh well, I will be sure to check this SB out.
Hello all, I will reply to everyone shortly, I'm in a bit of a rush heading out the door. Just wanted to say the workshop in Seattle was the best art experience I've ever witnessed in my life. Everyone was extremely friendly and approachable. So many awesome memories. I lost my voice yesterday from talking to a few of my friends about my experience. One that I will never forget. The energy was amazing.
Here are some images of my completed ecrosche, Still have to work on the face a little more and the hands, overall I'm pleased. What a start to the New YEAR!!!!!!!!!!
Hey darktwin, really glad to hear the workshop was great. Really wish I could have made it. Just wanted to comment since I've been inactive for quiet sometime. Really nice sketches you posted earlier, you lines are getting nice and the designs of the characters overall are great. I particuliar like the demon with horns and the priest designs the most. Also the ecrosche turned out really well. What is the size of it actually. Anyways take care, hope to see new stuff from you soon, and post any pics or any other stuff from the workshop that you would like to share. I would love to see.
WOW, im just blown away by the progress you have gone through in the past few years. i just love seeing this level of dedication, its truly inspiring! congrats on a great start to a very promising career!
Grant here! First up, it was cool meeting you in Seattle! It was a pleasure being a member of the Days Inn/Hurricane crew :-D
Lovely sketchbook you have here, your pencils are really soft, something I could do with learning from... I'll be keeping an eye on your sketchbook from now on :-]
We also have a workshop in Cairo: "Fine art Zamalek" I know how wonderful working in the workshop, especially with the nice people .. I wish you the time of fun.
Liked your study of the sculptured -a lot details
Great model...how many hours could you estimate it has taken you so far??
Original feeling costume ideas...it doesnt feel like your restricting your imagination and your trying some more involved poses. The first zombie like guy may have some proportional problems in his forearm and right thigh. The demon sketch below it...take it digital and paint it! give it some cool atmosphere. please?
