blow me over
to say that your stuff is good or great or whatever would be a gross injustice.
The second one ... the space ship interior ... well it made me want to unlatch the door at the far end and walk into the next room. its soooo realistic.
I wish I could do some thing even remotely similar
Will try ... when I post would appreciate feedback
Never worked with markers, dont have any, so will work in Photoshop.

FELLAH - Cheers dude, you've got mad skills
ASHEMOTO - Thanks, when you get together some sketches, I'll take a look. Just keep drawing ! I haven't been drawing that long......
Here is more stuff I have done over the last few weeks....
This is a sketch I did for a childrens book. The author wanted a 'realistic' cartoony sketch in pencils. It is about tallking mice and the little one has jelly on his head
Quck marker and ink sketch of a haggard, old cop....
Ink sketch I drew on coloured paper and coloured in photoshop. Not very good - I haven't been using photoshop for that long
A quick sketch of a submarine thingy..... one of the first pics I have done completely in photoshop
10 minute sketch I did in photoshop.....have to keep drawing - this is crappy

I'd watch some of your plane-lines, though - a few are a bit off, notable mainly in the tank concept and the 10-min sketch. Generally, I really like your tech stuff.
The organics are another matter. The darker mouse isn't raising a leg, he's missing one. The pale one, distressingly enough, is shrivelling into a sultana. The human head is also completely out of whack. I'd expect a haggard, old cop to have much more of a lined face. Check out some Loomis for an idea of how to construct people - it doesn't get any better than him.
I look forward to seeing more.

There's some work here that's technically very, very good - the second piece in particular is a thing of beauty...................Having said that, probably *because * most of your stuff is so accurately drawn, the one or two bits that fall short stand out more - which is a bitch. I'm thinking specifically of 'Tank Concept' (perspective seems a little awry), the '...haggard old cop', who looks young enough to be straight out of a rugby scrum, and the mice - there are anatomy issues here.
Basically, though, great stuff - keep posting.

good job man.
Watch your perspective
study things in real life for your textures
eat your vitamins
And believe in yourself

Thanks for the crits and comments people
Grisalian Thanks, don't usually do fluffy animal stuff much though !
Proteus Ha ha, it was supposed to be venting gas or something, I don't know ...but they do look light sabre-ish
Badger Cheers dude ! Soooo many influences/ inspirations; Donato, Feng, Vacher, Carvaggio, Mullins, Lockwood, Clyne, Turner, the list goes on....
Midnight Thanks for the crits, with my 10 min sketch I actually hadn't drawn any perspective lines and drew it by eye, I put lay lines in afterwards to see how far off I had gone and it was waaayyy wrong - cheers. With the mouse I actually hadn't studied any anatomy when I drew this (a few months ago) But I now have loomis and bridgman glued to my desk - thanks
Mandrake Again, thanks for crits - I promise to improve
Dave FW Cool, will follow your advice !
Will post some stuff soon...ie the next few hours....

Here is my sketch book update for today
mostly just boring Loomis stuff.....but anatomy is my main weakness amongst others, so I have to keep at it.....
July 21st, 2005 #15
Hey, you seem to be similar to me WARHEAD in that you are better at enviro's that char's.
I love your range in your imagination, you just gotta bring the anatomy up to scratch.
Line is one thing, but also varry your media, have a go with pastel, they work in light and dark, not line. Gives you a whole new view.
July 21st, 2005 #16
Some great stuff going on in here.
Love your sci-fi touch the first two are good!

Another update for today......
Badger Thanks....yeah I know my anatomy isn't the best. That is why I have been focusing on this for the past few months. I haven't been drawing that long and haven't been taught to draw so I have to to do it off my own back. I think I will wait until I get the basics right before varying media. Thanks
OBX I will take that as a compliment. Love Feng's stuff. He is the man !
Random crappy doodles, blue and normal pencil
Life drawing stuff - need to improve badly

Lol, yah that was a compiment. I love fengs work too. Ive tried to replicate some of his stuff but it never turned out to my satisfaction. Ur anatomy will come along. I found that having a mirror right beside my dest helps to figure out how things look. Hogarth is good. But just work on the sillouette of the figure first. Dont worry about muscles too much at first. Try drawing a figure super ugly and squigly to loosen up. Im a fan of drawing the figure in as few pen strokes as possible. just put the pen down and dont pick it up. It will loosen u up and break through some of the barriers ur brain my have about how the body is drawn. try and apply some of the perspective techniques u use to draw the spaceships and vehicles to ur figures.
O, btw, mabey give figure drawing a break and do some more vehicle concepts... i like them a lot. But keep up the anatomy studies, dont stop them, imo i just wanna see more of u vehicles cos they look cool.
Keep it up dude.

You have a great talent for designing vehicles and you seem to have some interesting ideas. My favourite of all your pieces are the marker sketches as they look great and are extremely well handled. I should know as my marker skills are just average at the moment. As for your characters, I think they're quite good but lack the energy the vehicles seem to have. They jump out at you instantly, the figures don't as much. If you reach a similar level of skill with the characters as you do vehicles. You'll be one great artist.
August 8th, 2005 #24
super sweet stuff dude.
diggin the vehicles and enviroments like everyone else.
i was wondering how you manages to get the tiny highlight with the marker pieces? ive seen feng do the same thing, im sure it has someting to do with prismacolour pencils and guache but im unsure of the technique. keep up the studies and you'll be cruisen in no time.

Your skills when it comes down to perspective (Your ships and enviornments) just blows me away. I wish I could barrow some of that skill! Your anatomy in your characters though is lacking by alot. I'd check some loomis and do some life drawings. I can't wait to see how you progress!
^keep me going by visiting my sketchbook^

Wow,,,great execution in terms of perspectival alignments (for the ships) and creativity W/ regards to the char stuff,,,,,
Anyway,,you seem to be flirting heavily with the antomical challenges,,,a word of advice if you will take it......stop flirting and ask her to go steady, okay? Treat anatomical issues as excercises and not as a means to a finished work....yet
1. decide what you are going to do,,for example,,,,,,,use a refference or do not,,,,but stop with the invented antomy,,,,get a book or copy a photo......start with good habits or the bad and problem ridden ones will start to stick,,,,,You should take into account that your being fresh to the challenge is not a bummer but a bonus.
2. I see how you use consrtruction lines to great effect in the ship designs and perspective drawings.....do the same with your figures,,,, Chart, graph and measure the proportions, place them in a perspectival orientation and concentrate on shapes and forms, not lines and features.....The only place where an eye ball is a shape and not a group of overlapping form is in a manga comic book.
3. more advice,,(take it w/ a grain of salt, I am by no means an authourity) If you are going to stick with the idea of constructing your figures with lines predominantly,,,Go from the inside of the figure out,,,,the outline is not so much a container as where the internal rendering meets the back ground,,,,, there is no real need to put more attention into the outline.... If you want to use outline,,try using full shapes (silouettes) as opposed to just the line,,it is the same principle but a good deal easier to work out tonally than just trying to shade a line drawing,,( it is actually like highlighting a silouette instead of shading a line drawing) When you use these two aproaches in tandem, you will get a lot more out of your drawings,,, outlining the lit side of a form and shading the reflected highlight, and creating a dark shape for the shadowed shapes and plucking out a couple high points....
4. this is the most improtant thing I can tell you ( I think),,,,,,Just loosen up,, let your arm do the drawing and not your hand and fingers,,,work larger,,,avoid details and pictorial representations of features like eyes and lips....Try massing with a big, blunt drawing instrument like conte chalk, and practice rendering instead of resorting to line work..
sorry if I sounded a little bit hoighty-toighty,,,,,I just felt like I had a lot to say to you and did not want to "please" and "do you mind" or "maybe you should try this if you want to" you to death....
( I guess this is you by now)

Hey thanks guys for all the crits and nice words, much appreciated when you are new !
KuNiva, thanks, yeah I know my characters are pants, ha ha, I just have to keep drawing. It's frustrating when you have the ideas, but can't put them down on paper how you want....
Evil_Sloth, I use a white gel pen and a 0.35 rotring isograph filled with white ink to get the 'bright' highlights. For edges you can just use a white colouring pencil or a pastel pencil. This is the stuff I use for markers :
Xpose, cool, yeah I'm trying with the anatomy, it's a long process though
Codakromek - great crits and advice - I definitely understand what you're saying. You don't come across 'hoighty-toighty' you have great skills and I appreciate the advice. If people can't or don't listen to crits they're not going to improve !
Fellah - ha ha thanks ! skal (I can't find an 'a' with a hole on top )
Bumskee - cheers ! I'm not a pro, like my art I haven't been doing photography that long (started about a year ago for both), but I have sold stuff and people ask for commissions so I'm "semi-pro" he he
Enough rambling.... here are sketches for today :

Huh. Quite a canyon between your sci-fi marker works and some faceanatomy pieces for example I mean when I started to scroll your thread those first ones really impressed me (quite Feng though) but those more organic things were not so fabulous. I fell in love with those photos.
Keep up it's good work. especially those titanic scifi designs!
