Some ref works followed by some odds n ends.
Dude by the name of Jayfoto's is having a monsta comp which inspired the two monsta fight scenes.
More to come

amazing stuff, very huge dump!
your monsters have so much flavor, love them to pieces.
These are great man. Like davi, I loooooovee your monsters. :thumbsup:
There is nothing wrong with using a photo to help you see things.
No one complains about life drawing,
so take a photo.
its easy, and will improve your piece greatly."
stikler999- thanks alot man. yep I got some more right now.
davi- cheers man. The dump is still coming. I was quite full.
I.was.ink- thank dude.
jester- cheers jester.
Heres some more. no ref.
huzzah man, very VERY nice to see you here. good stuff . got one question- most of your stuff (i saw at least) is monsters and people; how are you at other subjects (environments, vehicles, anything)? i'm just curios.
one more place to check every day, damn x:
hey lukias your sketches are kick ass I was wondering at what size are those monster drawings. I like those alot.
Hey Lung_Bug! Well.. I have always been into the organic side of things.. the living as opposed to the constructed. Mecha's, enviroments, perspective stuff is something I have never done.. doesn't interest me, but I wouldn't be surprised if that changed soon. I'm content at the mo with my humans and monsters but yeah having the knowledge of the other side would be sweet. Enviroments I might give some more thought, thats something I would like to add actually.. cos I suck with bg's etc.
Cheers for the comments man
2kre8- Everything I do is on A4..(US Letter would be closet). Just the average.
Cheers dude, appreciate your reply.
actually, i'm in a pretty same position right now- all my previous work consists of characters, portraits and such with a few exceptions). at one point i got frustrated being limited by my narrow knowledge (or rather got tired of doing characters in front of a blue, black, or the latest, orange background) and started studying various subjects. it's really nice to be able to place a character somewhere, i must say . anyways, i see you're happy at the moment, i'm just rambling (instead of learning chemistry). perspective stuff i think you should be interested in, having in mind it quite affects drawing the human body? well, one can be able to draw someone without knowing the technical side of it (and even be perfect at it). i'll stop now and get some sleep, have no idea what i just wrote but i hope it makes some sense
and oh, WHERE'S THE UPDATE?!
(added note: look at me, writing like i'm 45. smartass scum, that's what i am)
haha!. very valid comments man and you're fully in the green for saying it.
I agree, having well constucted environments would be spiffy cool, bibbidy whack.. and thats no lie. Nuts.
Heres a couple more I should have posted earlier. Well..whatever.
Lukias, we know you can draw..can you paint my man?
Would love to see one of these images painted up.
good work guy.
Painting?. Never heard of him...
Naa I tried a few weeks back, twas amazingly frustrating and I gave up. I'm off traveling soon so before I go I would like to get some sketching in and trying to learn how to paint is too much of an undertaking. Maybe a while from now when I get settled again I'll try picking it up.
I am pretty sure that I would find oils easier, even though its slower I think I would have more patience for it. With digital the results were poor and time consuming.. for me atleast.
Following a tut could make all the difference, by damn I'm lazy.
Thanks for your comment Targete.. always a buzz.
More drawings.. again
greatwork ... especially that last one. i love your stlye... hope you post more
these made me think about starting a daily sketchbook of my own here. might do just that when i get the scanner back. anyways, the pics are interesting and original. can't recognize any influences... were there any?
your stufs amazing, how long have you been drawing, tell me youve been doing it for like 50 years! how do you do it! your linework is fantastic!
you look like you've gotten very confident with your line, more so than before, it's helped alot
keep up the great work!
you can paint.
Lung_bug- yeah you should start one for sure.
Influences?. Yeah Wes9000, Cos, Tew, Justin Sweet. I enjoy anyone who digs realism(well Tew just has the narliest way with the human figure). I grab pointers from here and there.. as ya do.
sin- I've be drawing since I could(I'm 23).. like most kids I guess.. but have gotten more serious about it over the last 18 months. Really appreciate your comments sin!
davi- cheera again davi
killing.people- Is that like a deep wise voice stating with clarity and knowing "You can paint". Because I got the warm fuzzies just from hearing it that way.
Now I must pray. thankyou
NICE WORK! well man the only thing I have to say is where are the hands? I think try and work the hands in more with your gestures and working on the hands a little more in your more well worked sketches. Hands suck to draw... I should know cause I suck drawing them! Well done work nonetheless
"QUAKE WITH FEEEEAAAAARRRRR!!!!"
Yeah your right, hands are tough and sometimes I find it easier to try get away with suggested hands.. if you catch my drift. Often trying to render eash digit etc can make smaller elements like that appear over cluttered.
But I will make a point to work on it!
These are from the sketching board.. just thought I'd shove em in here.
Should have some more real soon. Uploading issues at the mo.
crap! this is some really kickin work Lukias! yeah hands and feet are tricky but your coming along, very nice rendering on their faces ~_~
Well I'm glad you agree. I hear yah about hands as well... I suffer a lot on em. But these are great too man! You work is very awesome! Someday... maybe I can be just as great... someday *looks off into the setting sun*
keep up the great work man!
"QUAKE WITH FEEEEAAAAARRRRR!!!!"
how could you not be able to paint!? youre insane!
holy shit, you are fucking awesome.. . monsters, concepts, life drawings. .everything. i can definitely see the wes9000 influence in your work (hes a huge inluence of mine also).. . .i was also VERY relieved when you said that you are 23.. .i was really hoping that you arent my age (18) because that would mean that you are just WAY better than me. . ..now i have a few years to try and reach your level of total skillage.. .hehe. really really amazing stuff.. .i cant wait to see more. man, i really need to start drawing now. .no more time to waste!
oh yeah, and i agree with killing people.. . you CAN paint.. .
haha, told you so.
shuks, yer skills constanly amazes me man,keep posting your stuff up,each and everyone of them inspires me everytime i look at them..
wish i had the concentration to finish full drawings like those.lol
Oblio- haha Did you here that Ruby, oblio thinks you two are a couple!!!! thanks man, much appreciated.
Barnabasgrey- No you must strive to be much better I say!!!
killing.people- Arg I would love to say "Gosh darn you guys saw right through me, yes I can paint with decent results". But alas, I runny turd sloshed in a bucket of afterbirth would be more visually appealing than one my my painted works.
Well maybe not that bad... I got carried away trying to think of something really gross.
Thanks for caring though man!!!. There will always be a warmth between us.
metalwinds- Stoked you like my work man... but you make me age paranoid!!. God damn it, I feel like I was 18 yesterday... you'll feel that too and sooner than you think!!.
Not trying to blow my trumpet here but it's the last 18 months that have been serious for me(seems to get progressivley more so) the other years were spent smoking weed, skating, and doing jack shit. I drew maybe once a fortnight. So I reckon I could be ALOT better than I am now if i'd put time aside for my art.
Which means theres no excuse for you not to be alot better than I am now when you reach this age!!!.
GET BUSY BOY, BEFORE YOU FIND GREY HAIRS ON YAR CHIN!
jester- Girl??. Oops maybe I didn't get that one accross right. Heh glad you like it anyway!
Rusty- Hey man, visa versa. Your work pushes my eyes out with excitment... and that can be unhealthy.
What?. Your work comes accross just as finished as this.... besides technically when is a piece finished?. I think all of these could have alot more time put into them... but yeah it gets boring quick I know!.
