I already talked about it on Gorilla but damn, Bumskee... this shit is gorgeous, man. And I'm pleased to see even more of the process and close ups here. Some of the best work I've seen from you yet. Makes me want to stay up all night and paint! Ha! Thanks for the inspiration, mate! Hope that you're well.

paperx, woo.. hahaha.. rackham is teh awesome cheers.. woo some girls do puff their hair at the back tho! hahah but I hear u! yeah.. I suppose there are many flaws that gets overlooked after so many hours.. heh.
adam, Yeah..good point.. but I thought the contrast shapes actually worked better.. there's already enough circular shape happening where it draws the viewers in.. yeah the skulls bit jumpy, the girls mouth..hahah.. i didn't even notice it.. funny u mention tom.. we were going to do some stuff together but sadly we haven't talked much art for so long.. shame really.. fancy tricks? HAHAHAHA
maldrin, I am really glad it worked out with telling a good story.. cheers
whit.. thanks mate! cheers, hope u are well
the whistler, thanks!
camara, thanks.. well I changed resolution few times on that piece.. probably 1500 px high on sketch.. and then 2500? to clean up and block in? and I think it was 4000 ish? once I started rendering..normally I don't change resolution much but I kept forgetting.. ergh.. anyways.. usually around 3000~4000 px.. sketching is much smaller tho..
nim, thanks! errm no not really.. should it? who? hahaha... yeah chow is good fun. maybe see u at chow this week then?
courtyard, thanks.. maybe a little too bright! hahah
mc2, thanks.. I think her face could use more roundness.. yeah.. I just didn't want to render her so much out.. but maybe I should have.. the whole broken effect was with a simple dot brush with colour dynamics. easy! it's more like an impressionist brush..
man_made_god, thanks! yeah.. i have them here somewhere.. but just to sit through and go through them gives me a headache.. egh.. not to mention I've changed hosting since and I have to relink them all.. *sigh*
DHtenshi, thanks for the much kind words.. I think values are very important.. I think u can get away with most things by just using values.. like b&w and then colour.. things like that... will do! cheers mate!

Just some thing..
these are just random gestures.. figures I made up, good fun! I think I am kinda getting the pelvis a bit better after some of those leg studies.. a bit more confident how they all fit it.. Of course i still need to do more and I will! soon
Good stuff Min! You're something else, replying to every single person. I like that a lot. You are insane with those figure studies. I so need to do a ton more. I make them to big when I do pencils, so I can only fit like 2 on a page. Gonna work on making things smaller to fit more like you.
Awesome chow :d and great studies aswell, probably a question that you read a lot, how much time do you spend on those? If i were to try and do something like that i would probably waste 24 hours to do only half of them :s
You're a destroyer min, just like that. Those latest updates are killing me hehe, in the good sense. The work for imagineFX is my favourite of yours, the colors are just great.
Just love for your work man, keep on postin' and inspiring
Wow, the environment studies in this SB are just mindblowing. Makes me wanna do studies of your studies! lol
I think i might start trying to do one of those every day after i finish uni, coz looking at those pages is so inspiring!
Excellent sketches, my friend. I'll be interested to see how this Chow pans out if you decide to bring it to a finish. The other one you did (the one a gave such glowing reviews) is still residing on my desktop! lol
I'm doing pretty well. My leave of absence was due to my first full time job in the industry as a 2D artist for a small game dev. That slowed my posting until it was mostly non existent. This year I wanted to change that so lately I've been trying to kick things out more regularly and hopefully become more active again. I finally started a new sketchbook thread (signature) and then several days later our company gave out lay off notices to most of our team. So it looks like I'll be on here more often soon as I'll be unemployed! Heh. So... I'll see you around! Stop in my thread and tear me a new one. I need to grow leaps and bounds this year, man. I have a lot of catching up to do looking at the stuff in your thread! Take care, man and keep drawing!
love the new updates. The two recent illustrations are captivating, and I love how you can find beauty in every landscape you make. Love the brushwork, and also great figure studies. You haven't posted any charcoal figures in awhile - hint, hint.
