    Hello there mister max1975longtimenosee. Updates... Of my god. Thank you for returning 'cause my thread has been really quiet "since u've been gone" I could write a song about it but I think Kelly Clarkson beat me to it. Great updates but still the hair is bothering me. Are you trying to draw aliens with klingon foreheads? This is my favourite. It has a artsy feeling to it. Keep posting damn it.

    Yay, updates!

    The paintings are awesome, I love the vivid colors.

    There's some weird scratchiness on the inks though, if you're using brush be sure to keep it full of ink otherwise weird stuff happens, the easier the ink comes out the easier to control it.

    All looking good, except working on values would really push you forward. Maybe have a go at trying different ways of rendering, playing with contrast and seeing how other artists render and approach the light/shade thing.

    You've gotten much better since you started. One thing I must say, though, is that you had a picture on your first page, where you only had pen with you that day. Honestly, that was one of my favorites, because everything felt really tight. You should bring that pen-tastic feeling to your already good looking pencils, methinks.

    Keep up the great work!

    Howdy everyne. Thanks for the comments. Sadly I've been really busy, so while I'm still drawing a bunch, I haven't had any time to post stuff or give comments. Here's some recent stuff though...let's see if I remember how to do this.





    References for the last two pics, if anyone's interested:


    I'm gonna try to make the rounds of people's books soon...but I have a ton of work crushing down on my head right now so I can't promise anything.

    Lot of drawing lately, not a lot of time to update though. Maybe I'll find a few hours and dump a whole buncha stuff here in the near future.

    Recent naked friday:


    And here's a warmup to it:

    Hey,

    great figures like always dude, your pencil sketchs are getting much better, just keep trying to push yourself even more. This one is my fav, http://static.flickr.com/61/230345111_bec57f571e.jpg. Its great to see that this is from your imagination, and i can see that all this work on the figure is doing you whole lot of good, you just have to keep drawing and posting

    Qxzi: That's one of my favorites too, even though there are a few things off about it. It's got a quality I'd like to have in more of my work.

    Here are a few recent sketches, no refs:

    Let's see if I can make this attach files thing work.

    Some digital sketches from the last few days...nothing to write home about. I had a method of digital painting, which I learned from people here, that seemed to work pretty well for rapid development of ideas with fairly snazzy appearances. But I seem to have forgotten. D'oh!

    Want to relearn though, because I'm not getting enough contrast out of my pencils, I can't stand charcoal, and acrylics (my current favorite medium) are too expensive and cumbersome for sketching and doodles.

    This is pretty bitchin http://farm1.static.flickr.com/166/3...246536b0_o.jpg. Pretty funny that she's going up against a wall of demons armed with a measley spear and a sash.
    Make sure to get those proportions more accurate before further developing those life drawings.

    Armando: She can handle the demons. It's the prospect of color that terrifies her. Well, terrifies me. I sort of know how to do color washes over an underpainting, but I haven't really tried it before...I'll keep an eye on those proportions too. Thanks.

    It's my girlfriend's birthday, and for her present she asked me to finish this. So I did. I didn't photograph it as well as I'd have liked, so I'm gonna have to try that again another time.

    Man, you can hear a pin drop in here. Guess that's what happens when you disappear for so long.

    Tryin' some painting on this girl. It'll give me a chance to fix some of the errors in what's otherwise one of my best drawings.

    Today I address a couple of my portfolio's glaring weaknesses: Dudes and clothes.

    Tomorrow maybe I'll do backgrounds and inanimate objects.

    EDIT: Added some color experiments. Going for a comic book style but I'm a little out of my depth with "inking."

    This is great. You got rid of the muddy look it had before. Good job on that.

    Placeboast: Yeah, didn't like it muddy. I was going for a balance of speed and quality, and I think what I finally came up with wasn't too bad.
    Let's see if I can do it again.

    This is still a WIP. For some reason it seems much more difficult than the last couple I did in this style. I keep having to start over on the shadows and light.

    EDIT: Finished for now, might add a background later.

    Today's lesson: Don't start drawing until your paper is laid out straight, even if you think you're just sketching. Crooked is bad.
