    You sir, are a great artist. Excellent sketchbook.
    Love your figure drawings, nice loose, confident lines.
    Industrial designs are fantastic, they really remind me of Katsuhiro Otomo's work in Akira.

    ah, what a great SB
    the last update gives me a strong egon schiele vibe, the loosness of the strokes.. the expressions you are able to make with something that looks so fast and quick.

    subscribed and ill be looking into all of the older pages over the weekend.
    thx for posting here

    I'm just teaching english at the moment at a Hogwan (Afterschool English Lessons). I draw pictures on the board to explain some things to kids. That's kinda arty

    Just taking a few months to build skills here hence the sketchbook, and hoping to work my way back into drawing for a living by next summer.

    I really love the simplicity in your figure drawings. Also enjoyed your prada work Looking forward to your future posts

    my sketches, and rants.

    I gotta say each time I get here it feels like you've improved your figurework tenfold - very inspiring work man, your handle on your figures is both fresh and interesting as well as a good model to try and follow...

    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...0&d=1186106542
    this one particularly caught my eye, like the minimalism where line is concerned, letting gestalt and closure take care of the rest. I find it fascinating because even though I see a figure now I might see a million other things depending on where I look.

    EDIT: I just had a look at that catalogue .... I'm really stunned at how unique it looks and feels compared to what one might expect from a fashion catalogue. Like that this one is full of artwork and not purely photos of the clothing itself. Great designs, wonderful catalogue .

    Oh yeah - the bank notes will only come a lot later, my current layouts and designs are too early into the process for posting .

    Keep these coming, enjoying them immensely!
    cheers!

    Smokin post Lok, some of the most expressive figures I've seen from you. Really looks like you're having fun with it. Great work all around.

    Cheers to everybody for all the comments! Some replies:

    Dile - I think I do that because I'm trying to look at shapes not necessarily just the lines. Glad you dig those man.

    Calle - Well, I'm flattered. But let's discuss that over some tea or whatever some time. I'm a bit busy but would be up for some train sketching some day...

    Sleepy_Head - haha, less is more, although for my father it's often 'more is not enough'. Both have their qualities if you ask me. Just do your thing.

    Rayk - Pencil? No, I do straight ink only. That's why I get so many fuck ups. For me it's a bit like skateboarding. When you're trying a trick, sometimes you land it, sometimes you don't (and fall hard on your face). But you just do another one and then when you do land it, it feels real real good.
    I just look very intently, lots of squinting, and then put it down on paper.

    Windmaker - Thanks man. Will do!

    zweiDee - Cheers, glad you like it.

    sabe2003 - Apparently when pages don't load cause the server is busy, it helps to log out and revisit the pages. Cheers man, and keep those pen sketches coming.

    InvertedChalupa - Thanks man. Shiele ey? Maybe, I do think some of them might have too many hard shapies. Which is a minor quibble I have with Schiele too. Love that digi painting you did for composition class, colours and perspective worked really well..

    HunterKiller - Thanks man, appreciate it.

    _andreas_ - Thanks man. I personally don't see Schiele as a loose guy though. More scratching, a lot. Which I agree my recent figures also have some of that in them. Interesting, thanks!

    sloppybunny - Yeah man. Keep doing that thing while surviving. Crazy competition in Korea I think, but with hard work you can definitely find a place.

    bhanu - Well, I'm no expert but I definitely think you got it in you man. Just keep on drawing every day man. You got some great primal stuff in your sketches already.

    Brendan - Thanks man. I do feel I'm learning a lot, even if my figures don't come out the way I want too, I'm learning a lot about drawing and concentration and me etc. I'm not sure these figures are a good model to follow. It's pretty much hit or miss, so I think a less minimal approach is way more helpful to learn this shit I think. The gestalt is definitely something you can take out of it and apply to other styles. Incidentally, the males figures done in chinamarker at the top were done with that book Force in mind which I was telling you about. Really helps to exaggerate and clarify the pose. Glad you like that catalogue, Prada definitely had a cool ambition with that project I think.

    Bojee - Cheers Alan, always good to hear the drawings look like I enjoy the process, which I do of course... Great to see you back and posting.

    D@niel - Thanks man.

    Alright then - updates! I have been doing so so many train sketches and I have them scanned and it is all nice and interesting etc. but - I decided I need to find a way to make portraits with a bit more of a finished feel to them by doing them in ink. With the experience from the latest figure sessions and also the latest cityscapes I was trying to keep them loose, but put some shapes down that look like they could be the base for something more than just a sketch...

    Nice work!!. You've made some great progress in this sketchbook. I like the technique you have going now, It's inspiring me to try some screentones. Thanks for the comments on my sbook btw.

    Man, these are tasty! I love the little shapes around them, looks like they're disintegrating.

    Lasts ones are impressive, your line is really strong.

    Actually not only the lasts, but most of your drawing's line tends to be so phucking powerful.

    I was just wondering the same thing as killermachine, are you using traditional screetones or computer generated ones under PS or something?

    the recent series of portraits are excellent, any chance you might play with variations to the screen tones?
