    I think red/orange is too active... the gray you got there doesn't stand up against it and the picture looks so very aggressively orange... what if you add some color, like blue or maybe green... they might soften it a bit... gray is just too neutral, I think, it can't compete...I wish it was not that bright orange too... Lines were the attraction to observe in this picture,,, you add color to distract from them instead of make them even more prominent, I don't understand why your covered most of your lovely lines with paint... they were what make this piece light, dynamic and individual...
    Bright doesn't always mean attractive...I for one appreciate when things are said in normal voice, instead of screaming.

    cheers to all the cool comments.

    sirio - yeah, those were from ref and although i exaggerated that hand by isolating it, it was a cool pic from the beginning.

    dile - well, tokyo spaces tend to have this imploded quality a lot. you'll not believe what tiny spaces people design and draw at...

    calle - well i'm back in two schools, where i teach art/design process freelance. it's a cool gig.

    rodrigo! - cheers man. you got one hell of a damn book. would love to see what you would make of it.

    bojee - alan, yeah sure i know that series. it's funny how that didn't occur to me when i was up there drawing it, cause i have a hockney book here with a couple of collages done by him that way. you're the stud man. a giant with giant paintings. really stellar work you've been banging out.

    sve - i want to talk about all the cool comments and things you raise but it's too much for now. its late but i do want to post some art. you posted a lot of rembrandt, one of my all time favourite draftsmen so of course i'm familiar with his line quality. it's stellar. this stuff really doesn't do it for me though. too 'pretty'.

    the funny thing is, i've never done any city sketch as spontaneous and uncalclated than that last one. the lines do look a lot straighter than they are cause of the downscaling. the real version is quite straight too though, my wife was looking at the original today and asked me if i had used a ruler. well, i guess those drawing classes at architecture school really got hammered in well. all i can say is i was tired and just trying to have some fun and seeing and registering fast and without thinking.

    ham-e - cheers man. more train sketches coming, just need to scan all that stuff man.

    bumskee - you got it all though man. lines, paints, colours, whatever - your nailing it every time bro.

    bradley - appreciate it man.

    koppa - well, cooler than cool is icecold and that's just what your book is like man. freezing.

    amnesty - well, was it as good for you as it was for me? thanks for dropping in man. start a book!

    brendan - exactly bro. i'm interested in how sometimes you can create space and then deconstruct it, like you say. add 2d qualities to it. it's just one take though. i'll make another one too.

    killermachine - ? don't be sad man, enjoy! thanks for dropping in.

    sve2 - well i like this experiment. basically, well, read the post to brendan just above. i like to play with shapes too. and this is one way. i totally agree it's not the right way to create depth and/or make the lines come out. this main orange shape and it spilling over the wall in the front is one thing i kept seeing when i was drawing this though. of course there are a million ways to play on that, but this is one take and i'm doing another one later.. cheers.

    ok - went to figure drawing today, purb came out too. model was cute (and so distracting) and had only rare moments of interesting poses.

    but, i had a great time. i switched from pencil/charcoal to marker and really like what that opened up.

    these were from last week i think

    this dood is the coolest guy there. while everybody is sitting there normally, nobody's talking, trying not too disturb the other people; he goes totally manic stylo, standing, sitting, moving forward, sideays, eyes bulging out, sweating like mad - and drawing as if his life depends on it. this totally doesn't do him justice.

    Well. the fact is that those ruler-like lines spoil effect for me personally... fine for some stylized illustration probably as a cute picture in magazine... but if you want someone to stay and get in the mood... I would say straight perfect lines kill it. Totally realize that it is a bad architecture habit .

    the ballerina picture and all the others were posted not exactly for you to enjoy the image ... it was to illustrate my point. If composition is thought out well, it can take the lead and after that you can experiment with lines or not... people will see wide in certain way placed on paper shape, conglomerate, something combined and might not even notice your extra efforts with lines.. what Art Nouveau style does for me... lines are pretty much even there, not one mistake.... one smooth ribbon of ink ( which I don't like btw)... but you see them flowing in one elaborated shape and it is funny to recognized realistically looking figure in there...


    I on a contrary like it, this drawing very much... the artist is 12 year old girl, a prodigy from my childhood years. Nadja Rusheva. her main attraction was ability to get under skin of the character she drew, live it through him/her/it.

    How do you like this one? Adam and Eve. She is not my friend... more like a something from my childhood.

    http://rusheva.intclub.info/adameva.jpg

    Three characters... all have a certain action and response to event happening...That's what I call "living through your character emotion". But of course I'm not trying to make you like it...


    In ballerina picture she is tired and still graceful and in control, keeping an elegant shape, because she is a ballerina, and a good sport...although inside her pretty shape is probably falling apart...

    You don't have to defend your point of view for me...that's not why I write to you. not trying to shape you in my direction... I don't expect you to see it like I see it and I don't need it... you know I think crits are a bigger harm than good. I write because you voiced your wish to see a reaction from your art from different people... so I'm one of them. a passer by in your sketch book.

    To your update...

    here are my favs:

    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...9&d=1178374229 for the slight overlapping which happened there,,, her bottom is closer to the viewer than her thin torso and that's wonderful... makes her little body protrude toward me in space .. with quite subtle means in that... the round horizontal lines and those light lines defining her buttocks are all what it takes to create the overlapping... quite elegant. I like the twist of her body too,,, hips going in one direction,,, her torso into different, opposite ... so this image has few good things going on... the motion from left to write and from depth of the space toward me... I like one of the leg coming toward me and slightly bigger than the other one. I like the little short dot-like lines you are using too... they define the forms ... but most important they create diversity and change rhythm in lines.

    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...5&d=1178374204
    Good expression of the face,,, focused... so I like it... good way to change monotone lines,,, making squares and circles and triangles from lines sometimes...

    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...3&d=1178374188 I like this one a lot for blackness and interesting toothy textures in her hair and for the calm big white shape of her body in contrast... soft and sharp together... interesting conflict for a viewer.

    Stellar lines sir!

    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...5&d=1178374273
    ^ breaking this one down, there's not that many elements but there's a lot of information. Way to go on making a little go a long way.

    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...4&d=1178374265
    ^ dig this one, great handle on the figure and the small particles here and there are completely doing it for me. Also love the gap in the leg, not sure why. Maybe because it defies my expectations without ever looking wrong.

    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...2&d=1178374181
    ^ this one is really good too, like how the figure pops from the page. I do however have a crit for this one: the cast shadow across her hip isn't quite reading like a shadow I think. I think it might look better if you flattened it a little, less value range and texture inside the shadow. Just something minor, only thing I could find.

    The markres are really my faves in this batch, looks like you are more confident with them than with the charcoal.

    keep it up, get inspired each time I come here!
    cheers!

    whats up man, sorry i meant to reply to all those nice post sooner. The last batch of figure is really nice, shows a lot more confidence than the previous ones , and thumbs up for doing them with ink.
    this one is superb, really like the blocking of the legs http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...3&d=1178374259

    as for your enviro.. nice compo and colors as always. Your silhouettes are fascinating. Any chance of seeing some vegetation in one of them ? Im sure you sexy lines could pump some kick ass trees and landscapes.
    grats for the stars btw, well deserved man.
    keep it rolling.

This one is sweet http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...3&d=1178374188 I even like the bits of tape. I also really like this one http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...5&d=1178374273 it's got your style going on and it also has that minimal feel you tried a while back.

    Cool life drawings.

    I was recently browsing some architecture photos through google and I found something really interesting. It reminded me of your art so here's the link

    Good stuff, there's some of those small details that i was talking about in these. In a lot of these it's easy to see the area that you were most interested in.

    always love looking through your work, though I don't think I've ever replied for some reason.. beautiful work man, must say that your perspective drawings all around are just amazing. the 36 point one blew me away! haha, also must say that your people are wonderful; great life and gesture in all of them. especially really quick facial drawings, so much information in such a short time. yea though just figured I'd drop in to give my compliments, so keep up the great work!

    Really love the new direction you're taking things man, I for one really like the looseness and expressiveness of your figure stuff, there's an economy of linework thats evident even now.

    Anyhow, just popping in to say hidee ho and hope things are well =)

    Cheers, Darren.

    great sketchbook tnesai! just want to give some love back

    the 2 most outstanding thing to me in here are your figure drawings and those enviroments. love the lines in both of em, they look pretty fast and confident.

    i only have one wish to see once a large enviroment like those you do with some characters in em. i imagine your lifedrawing in em atm, this would be killer!

    i also like your inks .

    keep at it.

    i love the store you did for your father, a while back. really cool! - other than that, what a tight sketchbook you have here. i just love that recent batch of sketches (where you wife had a laugh, those). they are so simple, yet very expressive. great stuff!

    wow - soo many replies, with way too much praise.
    i've been bussy with some assignments and with teaching some design classes but i want to put some art up.. so some quick replies:

    sve - as always thanks for the thoughts. reading back i feel the line discussion is getting a bit more argumentative than opening up new insights though.. perhaps not but anyway the drawing you posted is very nice, the lines are a bit too sweet for my taste but i think the composition and shapes she made are great. good energy. and thanks a lot for starting the lounge birthday thread. it really did feel like a small present. cheers!

    brendan - i think that series was about gestalt and light shapes merging in and out of each other. it looses structure but i often like the distortion and i think the focussing on shapes gives it a different kind of realism. i've done a couple since and when you focus too much on light shapes and don't think about structure at all it doesn't really seem to work. just when you think you understand a bit, you don't. haha. i love it. i'm curious what you think of the next batch. agree on the crit in that charcoal piece. i was trying to correct it during the session already but i messed it up even more..

    whitec - that's one of my favourites from that batch. i was surprised how basic you can go, the heel of her left leg is almost a total basic triangle.

    prophet - cheers man. appreciate it.

    ham-e - i always like how i can do a totally different thing when doing figures or peeps on the train - but i do like how the figures and scapes seem to merge into one way of how i see things. i always want to experiment but things do start to feel more coherent now. thanks for droppping in man.

    asoir - thanks man. that's one of the best things to hear. i'm enjoying myself more too in the process.

    idiot - cheers! wonder if i'll see you in shanghai??? hehe

    zaknafain - ow thanks man.

    bhanu - well i used to use nudypics sometimes for figure ref but since now i go almost every week to life figure drawing and that does make things a whole lot better. of course their poses are different but learning wise it helps a lot more than i ever thought it would.. keep it coming man.

    gspot - i don't know either but i think theyre lively because i focussed on the light and not drawing objects. like a face object with a nose object and a mouth object all outlined. thanks for dropping in man.

    farvus - thanks for that link. it does connect to my drawings. we have that clutter here as well and i love their randomness and how it makes a place less designed and more like nature.. i don't post them here but i have a lot of photographs of similar subject matter. thanks for actually taking the effort to posting it here..

    bojee - yeah i did think of what you said before that session. i think if you leave some things out you can add more in too. but it's also a matter of squinting i think. i put my glasses of for one of the poses but that gave me a headache. but squinting does show you what is the most important stuff in there so you can leave out the rest when you have limited time. your recent paintings are stellar man. good to hear you did good with those. i think the portrait series came out really well. it's got a light feeling to them but also very painterly and monumental. i feel everybody should check out your latest work.

    onir - well thanks for just showing appreciation. i have been dropping in on people just letting them know that i like the work too. and it's always interesting to see which drawings people respond too. thanks man.

    seanani - thanks man. i hope it never ends...

    naomi - hey there! cool that you like those. i never meant to do the most minimal drawings i could do though. i'd like to keep it loose and pick out the most important stuff and suggest the rest. but going for ichiban minimal i think will make me feel restricted or too conscious of every single line or something. that is definitely not what i want to get into.
    i'll probably end up totally turn it around next time..
    you are due for an update!

    skureal - thanks man, that's quite a compliment coming from you. i think your shapes and pencil renderings are literally stunning. are you still working in amsterdam? keep up the amazing work man.

    shinryu - thanks man. haha -pick yourself up!

    hivemind - don't hate man, enjoy! thanks.

    purb - futari ha genki you. just eyeing that workshop in china...

    magicman - darren, what's up bro? things are good but busy. i've been distracted a lot too which doesn't help much. for the first time the multiple disciplines my assignments came in all at once leaves me feeling scattered. but it's allright. just producing always gets me back on track so thats my gameplan..

    darktwin - thanks for dropping in man. maybe you'll get those hands, maybe not. i draw them when they do something nice. no but seriously - sure i want to do millions of hands, but i need to give some time to what i'm seeing and practicing now. can sadly only do so much... cheers

    goblinshark - i've done some sketches with figures in them. sometimes it's nice but often people tend to look at the figures. i want the environment, the buildings themselves to be my main characters. but i guess i could try it out again sometime.

    bumskee - wow thanks man. you find that spot on the rainbow make sure you give me a call and i'll join you. love love lloooovve your work.

    invertedchuachuta - thanks for the love man. that huuuuge figure drawing you did was really cool.

    adraude - thanks for dropping in man. glad you like the store, it was definitely nice seeing it finished. i like your work, especially your pencils look hot man.

    bojee - just a little...

    paperX - perhaps i should just update a bit more regularly or something. thanks for dropping in though man.

    phew - well after all that loving it's time to put some sketches up... i liked the direction i was going in but started to focus as bit more on shapes. i've been leaving more things out and merging shapes of light together, especially when they cross into/over structural shapes (if that makes sense) and using negative shapes and gestalt more to define the objects. i do a lot more squinting and trying to characterize the shapes, and keep the pen/pencil on the paper longer, flowing from one shape into the other. of course that is all nothing new, including for me, but that's what i've been focussing on. i'm just putting these up, some i like, some not so much. i guess i should edit all the crap out, but it's a sketchbook after all so here goes.

    some trials, lines/shapes too hard, don't like the composition that much. it was hard to concentrate cause i was standing next to a sushi restaurant entrance and the peeps gave me these japanese silent hints to piss off. but some things in there gave me an idea for another cityscape, which i will try out later.
