Hey man.. been going thru this thread. I can see your progress, its pretty good.. keep it up man.. and listen to your crits, just dont get too discouraged. Even the greatest artists get horrible crits.
Keep up the good work.. I'm sure in a few months time you will make another leap forward in your drawings.
Improvement? Yes. Months have taught me something. Fortunatally, most of the crits I get are positive, and I'm happy that people actually like what I draw I have a couple other things I forgot to post. So I'll put that up.
Theres barely ever any Douglas pictures!

That you have! Done any anatomy studies lately? Those would help you even more. Death as a hitman is an interesting idea. Different than the usual depiction of skull and bones, reaper, ubermonster whatever... Continue that train of thought!
Wow, its been a long time since I last posted! I'll post again soon...just need more pictures.

Death is very toothy, isn't he? Looking good...the first pic, his arms are too long tho... You could benefit from some longer studies, really sit down and focus on one thing for an hour or more. Didn't you say you'd gotten an anatomy book? Study is good dude, helps loads!
Wasn't trying to make the first picture perfect, just drew it. And yes, Death is very toothy...you know how skeletons have those erie grins?

This is a picture I forgot to put in the last post. I had these guys in a nightmare sometime back, I finally put them on paper about a week ago. Its somewhat difficult trying to draw things from dreams. These figures arn't the scariest ever drawn, but in my mind they are terrifying. The nightmare was more psycological and the imagrey helped to add to its disturbing nature. Maybe one day I'll try and draw that too.

The nightmare drawings made me giggle. Reminded me of a movie I've seen. Or maybe a video game. . . .
Is the woman you just posted Whimsey? She seems to have a different face and hair type. Also the "personality" seems different, too. She is pretty, though. I can see your improving, keep it up!

Hey dude, what's going on? Getting kicked out of class?? Dude, you gotta learn to be more circumspect! Just doodle down the margin, when the teacher's back is to you.
One thing I've noticed with every character you draw - your faces are always 3/4 view. Do some side views, full front and 3/4 rear to shake things up - even Charles Schulz drew the Peanuts gang from various views. Keep practicing - you're improving!

Hey - some full frontal faces! Good show, Quinster, they're looking good! I like the pirates on the last page - they are pirates, yes? Are you going to try out ChOW? It's going to be great fun! C'mon, neither one of us'll win, but it's still fun!! You got all the way till next saturday to do a finished piece!

Nice work. Collaborate with me sometime; it'd be fun.

Hey dude.the sketch of karla is awesome i didnt liked the actual drawing itself.However i like the characters and the bodies though you need to work on the face i believe. and sometimes use a little more variety i dont know if somebody write that before.Probably your things are tuxidos but sometimes a little variety is also good.
The sketchbook of a Mad Hungarian
hey, some nice things here. Try not to draw on lined paper.
keep on studying and updating, looking forward to your progress.
I've decided to name my mischevious Nymph "Ivy". I made a story for her where she'll fit into my story. Not all of it can be followed without explanation. If you follow Ivy you can see shes a regular nymph and then starts being more human. She'll be nessecary to the G-Man, Wimsey and Douglas's mission after they run into the nymphs. Ivy is intorduced to clothes and "proper human girl" behavior. In the midst of it she gets caught up in her own vanity and when our characters do eventually run into the devil Ivy is manipulated by lucifer himself to do his bidding (really evil stuff). She betrays the G-Men and then is cast aside by the devil after her use is done with, stripped of her clothes as well as her vanity. Cast into despair she desperately seeks help from her cousins of the sea (water nymphs, mermaids, whatever you call them, I'll probably make them relavent before this particulas sequence). "Cousins! Save me! I am lost, I have been used!" (something to that effect). The cousins of the sea are less forgiving than her family in the woods. They know of what deeds she has done and how she has forsaken them. Instead of helping her they beat her, shave her head and take out her eyes, so that she may never see beauty. Afterwards, tey return her to the woods blinded and shamed. The head Nymph of the woods (not sure what to call her shes been drawn before and shes also in the upper left hand corner of this sketch) cannot give her back regular sigh so gives her the power to "see beyond" or something like that. Ivy eventually gets her sight back at the end of SoK when she comes to aid the Dead G-Man. Sorry for all the typing, it was a huge brainstorm I had last night and all of today. I'M ON A ROLL!!!
