    na man, these are great, just keep doing digitals, and experimenting, it shouldnt take too long for you to find something you're comfortable with. Your traditional skills are already great, it shouldn't take long for all of it to transfer to your digitals. I'd say it would be a good investment to keep on with the digitals. Don't worry too much about shite lookin work, gotta have the shite to learn from it and move on.

    Oh gosh, thank you for posting. Keep moving forward.

    Great colours and sweet pencils. All the digis seem to have lots of potential to push further.

    Keep pushing dude, dont give up! Some of these have massive potential, maybe just pick your favourite and work it up as much as you can to see you limits with the 'medium'.

    They've already got a really nice feel to them, great pencils as ever.

    you have stuff genius is made of...so why stop ..and think yerself inferior... why dont you use your sketches as references...
    but these digis are wow...i dont why you dont do much about it... but I really want to coax you more to do conceptual paintings...dont have to be digi..dont like digis myself...but definitely oils...

    Much love

    One mans Lame Digis is another mans masterfrickenpeice digis. never so true as here on conceptart. I don't see anything wrong with em, maybe value range could be improved but thats the beauty of digital, never forget that you can fuck around with it till it looks like you want it to in the end. Cause thats the whole point. enough rambling, good stuff I am completly depressed about my own drawing abilities now.

    love your paints, man. wow the color and every
    brush stroke shows emotion!

    your photography is amazing as well. i love the
    nude portraits as well. the eye to detail in those
    shots are exciting. :]

    ps. bring back the sketches!! :] i get caught up in
    my photography as well and neglect art. it's sad

    Clochette - Hey thanks

    agelaos - Glad you think so mate.. I suppose I wont be getting any better if I procrastinate. Big cheers.. I always appreciate the feedback!

    kidult - CHeers!

    [void] - Thanks man.. I have some more.. again nothing flash.. will post soon. Though I kinda don't want to get stuck into rendering without atleast having some basic idea of how light scenes... and thats the hard part!

    krossj - Thank you

    bhanu - Yeah.. thing is.. learning to paint via digital is so much faster than trad media but it just doesn't feel the same.. obviously. But I do think its the way to learn for sure. I just have to perservere. Cheers matey

    Hybrid_75 - Hah, cheers man.. yeah, with digital its instant change-ups at random.. so far removed from trad media in that respect. I'll keep trucken.

    MattGamer - Yeah this photography thing is proving too much fun.. plus snapping away is less stressful than mulling over a sketch or painting. ..More sketches for ya now man. Hope you like em.

    Mischeviouslittleelf - cheers yeah



    More unfinished sketches from last year

    You're marks are inspiring! I agree with Agelaos, just keep pushing on the digital painting. You have a good color sense and I was admiring how fresh your brush work is, you'll be a master in no time!

    Really great to see some updates in here. The first page of your latest dump of sketches is just fantastic - instantly one of my favorites. Love how your characters always seem to hint of something very dark and brooding. I hope you decide to spend more time experimenting with your digital work.

    Regards,

    Munin

    Luke, I enjoy your recent digital paintings. I see you're wondering if they're worthwhile. On one hand, there's no requirement for an artist to work digital. If you're like Djurdjevic and get swamped with concept artwork commissions, and you know digital well, then it's alot faster, otherwise do what you like. On the otherhand, if this is your biggest challenge of late, then working at it might help you grow and influence all your other work. This all depends on what your goals are.

    Here are a couple observations (and thanks for the compliment):

    1. Clarity/Edge treatment. Compare your pencilwork and oil painting to your digital work. There's a huge contrast of clear sharp edges to blurry areas in everything except the digital work, where everything is blurred/out of focus. Sharpening up your figures in certain places would help them a ton (in fact most or all of them feel unfinished).

    2. Empty space. You fill your drawings and paintings with life - with characters, light and shadow, textures, etc. It comes naturally to you. With digital, not so much, although I see improvement already from post 699 to 700. Part of it is your drawings are conglomerations of different studies, concepts, dreams, all pressed together. Instead of simply conveying the content, they're more of a window into your mind. The digital works are too, but in a much more limited way.

    It's very tough working digital. It seems to draw its strength from collage and fancy brushes, although zhuzhu manages some very simple/clean works that rely on expressive line over everything else.

    My advice, as a novice/fan is to keep going, and grab a few fancy brushes to play with, like how m@ and leventep work. Don't paint like them, but see what new things you can come up with. experiment.

    DanielC- Hey thanks man, totally digging all your work btw.. looks like you're really enjoying yourself.

    wookiedabo - Nah can't say I've ever uses a wash...and I'm not confident enough to try it either.. also it takes a fair amount of skill imo to make a wash compliment the under-work. CHeers for the comment

    draw - cheers!

    oomgawa - glad you seem to think so.. heres hoping. Thanks for the feedback!

    Zord - Heh, you're welcome! Thanks for dropp'n in.. tends to make the posting of art worthwhile

    Stefefef - You think?. Cool.. I'll try to have to retain that when refining the works. Thanks

    Munin Raven - Yeah, I think/hope after this workshop I will be inspired to create some more digital. I REALLY need to see other people in action to grasp better and more efficient techniques. Thanks

    Ulver - Cheers bud.. appreciate you stopping by

    TASmith - Yep.. thanks alot yeah. I agree with what you're saying.. especially re experimentation. Gotta keep trying new things and always realising that there is multiple ways to solve any given problem.
    Thanks for everything else.. its taken into consideration!



    Right.. heres the rest of the digi works from this year. After the workshop, where no doubt I'll pick up some great tips and tricks.. I'll get to making some better more inspired pieces. Fingers crossed.

    Cool stuff as always, Lukias. Have you thought about signing with a gallery in Wellington? It would neat to see your paintings in person.

    your sketches are beautiful.. there's an elegance to your characters and creatures, in their design and motion, that i'm very jealous of and hope to capture someday. can't wait for more

    A bit of cock and balls action eh! heh!.
    Your digi work is coming along nicely, has the same flair you put into your oil work which i really like. With the advice of the M.B pros you'll be learning this week you'll be unstoppable!

    Wow... I didn't expect to be treated to an update so soon. Your digi's are coming along at breakneck speed. Nice to see some familiar sketchbook characters given a new lease of life. My pants smell of envy!
