    Dire's stuff without mankeys

    Oks... so Ruzkin told me i should put stuff in here for feed back... and I was all... fearness coz people here are really good and draw really interesting things and lately I feel my art to be very boring... I mean... most of what I draw these days are cute little anthros.

    So I guess now that I'm submitting here... I should prove I'm more than just furries and cute little comics. Get back to drawing some of the old cool stuff I used to do, with a wee bit of violence and some mecha type stuff.

    anyways heres some stuff:

    Dire's stuff without mankeys
    This ismy entry for Kraden's character redesign contest. I'm not keen on the royal blue and tan combination, everyone else has kept the royal blue but I ditched it in favour of natural colours. Besides, the first time I met him, he was wearing brown. Forgot to make his arms as fluffy as a proper anthro should be, I was using photo reference and was concentrating more on getting the arms drawn and shaded right to convey proper forshortening.

    A digital painting that I never completed. Started by messing in my forms and what not on photoshop, then went into Open Canvas for more delicate painting, Only ended up doing the face to use as an avatar.

    A portrait. Started off with rather light pencil, then went in with pencils to colour, then played a bit with water colour and ink.

    Vector of a vacuum.... I choose really interesting subjects don't I?

    Cold lifeless drawing care of me... needs shading and live variation. Not just cold accurate portrayal of forms and shapes... also I dont think shes drawn sitting on the same plane the bed is positioned.

    Mrrroooow, I didn't realise you'd started a sketchbook thread. Some of this I've seen before, some not, but it's all great.

    Your work has always been inspiring to say the least, full of expression and just raw eye-candy.
    And you would be the 16th person i've recognised from dA, noticed ruzkin thanks to the avatar you gave him.

    I mean this in the most positive way possible, but you've inspired me into doing some of the more boring subjects for art. Stuff i need to practice but been purposely avoiding.

    Otherwise, i have to say no critiques that you haven't spotted already, i'll try and point some more knowledgable guys in your direction though.

    Looking forward to more updates. =D

    Good stuff.
    Overall I dont personally like the mangastyle so much (favourite however is the kickass bunnygirl), but I see alot of comic-style potential in your more personal work. I like the Still-lifes to of cds, playstation and such. I also see you can do "regular" people, not just manga and comic characters - develop that more.

    I say develop more on environment - interior/exteriors and also strive for more personal style, like the portrait of your dad (brilliant) and the girl that took of the shell thing.

    And oh, the references to suicide worries me - stop that line of thought immediately!

    Have fun

    I really like the style of your work. You seem to have a good grasp of colour. You seem to know how use colour to manipulate the mood of your work. I think that is why some of your “boring subjects” work so well. The picture of the vacuum was really nice, had a nice industrial look to it. Anyway keep up with the work. I would like to see some more figures if you have any lying around.

    Something revolutionary is coming to the boards, my sketchbook coming soon

    Update 3/12/05

    Okays, update to keep thinsg alive... been working hard for the past few weeks on stuff for the Artholes exhibition in Jan with Ruzkin. Coming along real well.

    This is No Flowers, a collab with me and Ruzkin. This was the photoshop mockup, we've since managed to replicate almost perfectly on canvas with stencils. 2 or 3 months from first concept to finished piece. Tis very cool when up close, I'll post photos of it later.

    Jinx and Gavin are two main characters in a story I've been working on (and off) for 5 or so years now. It keeps evolving, hopefully I'll be able to put it into comic form soon enough.

    And I admit it, I luv my carebears.

    I don't say anything new in here. You have grat, powerful, indestuctible style. I really want to have such drawing level as your. Great pics, with a lot of tasty humour on it. I don't really like Antho pics (they are great of course, but i just don't like anthro). You'da best.
