    Ooh nice, you were delving into olmecan and aztecan art? Isn't that just the juiciest thing ever? I start drooling just thinking about it! You're really right, making the world a more beautiful place is certainly a worthy goal. Definitely absorb all that knowledge our ancestors, I have a feeling they knew what they were talking about.

    And to go in the opposite direction (time-wise), you did a Barontieri study! It looks awesome. I don't see a whole lot of sci-fi or mech stuff from you, so this is fun! I think her nose might need more definition, it seems a little blurry. I love her expression, though, kickass head!

    I'm gobbling up all your pen sketches and loose figure studies. Yum, yum, yum. Digging your subtle colour choices in a lot of your work, but some of them have a slight (noise?) filter over them which detracts for me. Great output, though.

    Bahahaha, I love the sb link in your sig. Brilliant, as are all the updates since the last time I snooped in here. Thank you so much for your post. From the heart.

    I got to ask also, what kind of paper is 1167 and others drawn on
    I really love that gritty noise, and none of the Photoshop kind.

    Hey. Great work. I really like the chow painting you did. Good composition but also it has propably the best rendering and value range among your digital pieces. I dig the pen sketches too. Try playing with different line thickness. You might have better control over values this way.

    Just going back to what you said here. From what I observed in your sketchbook, the smaller sketch of face you make, the more mistakes it has in proportions and angles. The thing is it's impossible to introduce any structure to something that is 3 cm big unless you work with magnifying glass and the thinnest rapidograph there is. It's super hard to make the chin or eye in perspective when it has size slightly bigger than tip of the pencil. You might learn how to simplify certain body parts from comic artists but for accuracy there is no other way than drawing big.

    I'm looking forward to see how you put all those olmekian and aztekian aesthetics into your imagination drawings .

    FAUST! It's awesome news you're still a live! Great inspiration and motivation that you still do stuff... especially for me.. because you know my story.. I kept leaving and coming back.

    I'm gonna go back a few pages to check out your more recent stuff. It's 1:15am here so I might go sleep, but I think I'll check a few pages.

    I like your inks, not too messy, not too mechanical but has a nice flow to it.

    Make a sketchbook happy, feed it a tip to improve!

    Hey, I just went through the last ten or so pages of your sketchbook. The progress is there and there's a big jump after that 1000 gesture post. That really impressed me, and then the three illustrations on post 1088. Those last three with the bright red contour lines - I'd love to see more of that. That's the kind of goodness in art that words can't describe.

    Keep it up man!

    Hi Faust!
    I like your sketchbook pages and the reocurring characters in them. I do think your cross hatching could use some work though. It just looks a flat/rough in places. The colourful skull is beautiful, really dig it, and the rest is as always top notch.

    Cheers

    Well I could just as well...

    @kingkostas: Hey thx mate, dunno about the keeping up tho, hehe

    @AsaB: Well its less about meso-american native art as decorative design principles in general,really. Trying to get a hang of ornaments and so. Thank you so much for your support!

    @Munin Raven: haha yeah that noise filter Trying to cover up some of my clumsyness i guess. But i think its overdone in some pieces. Thanks for peeping in!

    @dwardo: Wow thanks man! well the scetchbooks I use now are all of the VERY cheap kind, actually dummy-covers from bookstores, very rough paper. It's actually not that good for anything, because it doesnt take much of graphite, so tonal things are sub-optimal as well as line-drawing, since you cant really erase anything. I switched to better paper nowadays, but it was a great experience doing those scetchbooks-

    @Farvus: I see what you mean, man and i do big drawings in the academy, around A2-A1 on a regular basis. On the other hand, I'm shortsighted, so I really have no problem hanging with my nose in the paper hehe. Its strange that you say the proportions look different in the bigger drawings because that's not really what I am getting. More the proportions look better in the more elaborate drawings I spent more time and concentration on.
    Take care, master!

    @Lyno: Thanks man!

    @Rolo: So are you! Nice to see you back! I dont know if I already wrote in your SB, will check out

    @MaartenR: Yeah it was a blast! Learned a shit-load about measuring and stuff. Havent talked to you too long, man! Can you SMS me again? I failed to save your number, would like to stay in contact.

    @Pigeonkill: Thanks I always like thinkgs messy!

    @James Wolf: Thanks!

    @TASmith: Wow thanks man!

    @Grandmassa Mr. Spect: Dont know what you are talking about @_@

    @R a n d i s: Wow thanks Randis! Also thanks for the crits you gave earlier on my piece, although I kind of failed to implementt everything nicely haha. Still learning. You please keep on rocking as hard as you do!

    @ Sebastard: Dude, you sure you looked in the right scetchbook?

    @Janos: Well what you call "reocurring" characters I call one-trick pony haha! About the crosshatching, you're right, my technique is and was always quite messy and I cant really get rid of it entirely. On the other hand, I'd rather keep a bit of flatness than become one of those 19th century etching-machines that seem to have no soul in their lines. Not that I do though hehe.

    @HunterKiller_: Thanks mate, although i think colours are my weakest point still

    @purb36: Yeah I'm still drawing alright

    @hummel1dane: Thank you man!

    Well i think now is as good a time to update as ever. I shunned it like I shunned a lot of other stuff the past few months. Been through a real down-phase lately, wont get into it too much, only that I worried about being able to get up in morning rather than produce art. Nevertheless a drew a bit everyday and went to the academy.

    Which is kicking my ass right now. Second year is painting and VERY different from what we did last year. Then, I had instructors that were pretty awful draftsmen and even worse teachers but respected everybodies freedom so i could use the time to do modeldrawings 5 times a week and exercise design and form and all that during the class-exercises and not do any homework.
    Now we have excellent draftsmen that demand for me to work hard for their classes . I'm still adjusting but i think i learn much more out of it and hopefully my paintings will stop sucking soon. We are doing all kinds of media, but mostly oils.

    To make it less boring, i will continue with my schedule and use this scetchbook to get some focus and structure in my art and life. Anyways, here is some scetches for you to laugh at

    Great having you back And don't worry about your little pause, the need to get away from CA, art or anything is totally understandable.

    That being said, glorious update! I think you're getting more confident in your life drawing, especially in regards to shading techniques and overall how you describe form. So kudos Your digital work is also a pleasure to look at. This one really caught my attention.I couldn't stop looking at that awkward walking figure. Interesting stuff. And the last piece is beautiful, especially the texture on the mecha!

    You also should post your contribution to the Self Portrait Day

    @Vuurdraakje: Thank you! Your stuff has got some soul as well

    @hummel1dane: Wow thanks maestro!

    @walnut: Thanks mate! Good to read you back!

    @AsaB: Wow thanks Asa! Well I could post my SP from the 1.11. just as well

    @Monkeydominator: Thanks! But what casts? Not in this update.

    Anyways, just a small one, I browsed my own Scetchbook back and witnessed myself having made daylies at some point. I think I can achieve that again, even though it may just be a tiny little doodle a day or so. Should keep me from procrastinating too much.

    You didnt come here for pretty prictures, did you?

    @llex_paul: Thx mate! Pictorial design is something I try to grasp for over a year now. Nice to know that my attempts are at least visible

    @My57: Yeah I do that, too, hehe. More often than not, though, I don't see much improvement even after years of study in some scetchbooks. To see real improvement and hard work is something that is really rare. The scetchbooks of CA-members I would recommend for seeing that are _Dile, Gabo (GaboArtPage first, then Robogabo), Mindcandyman and Algenpfleger. All better learners than me and less dissapointing when browsing through I'd think.

    @CecelyV: Yeah I try to enjoy myself as much as I can. Thank you for your comment!

    Anyways, today I did an exercise in shapes. I have been focussing sooo much on form that I completely neglected that part and only kind of drew from my guts when it comes to 2D. But one just has to look at the great art of Jon Foster or Bumskee (http://minart.net/datas/works/baba_yaga_f.jpg !!!!) to see the power of shapes. Great artists from the past like Leyendecker and NC Wyeth and some more were masters of that.
