kingcoyote: Hogarts is kinda exagerated but its great to see the muscles
as volumen instead as just abstract shapes conecting here and there,
Im happy to har you wanted to do inks after seeing my experiments I made
my day you will see studing anatomy does pays off, but it takes
some time to even start to kick in, so keep it UP!
Burning Eyes: Your last SP looked hell of a lot nice cool harsh dramatic
lighting, I diged it a lot, just keep doing em, Im still way far from doing
a really good face, its a matter of pratice thats all, you doing really

hollow thing, well I was gonna write that ill overcome it with practice

same thing on the workshop) and well I dont know what to tell ya, I guess
time will tell, its not like I dont see "it", its more like Im not even sure if I
can fix it, and like I said time will tell...I know you dont meant to be
harsh on anything but man, you comment really bumed me out, its like

Ok some creatures, the big one was for the weeks COWS but I wasnt able
to bring the skech to color, still I liked my portal opener, and I call
it "entropy beast" and some demonish lemur, see ya guys later
The portal creature is a good start... very dark. It reminds me of the Naz'gul from LOTR, and also some of Brom's stuff. The arms on it look a little "off" though, like you couldn't figure out how they should attach... um, it looks like you added some mass in between the torso and arms to make up the difference, instead of getting them positioned well in the first place. Does that make sense? I'm also having trouble figuring out what's going on with the triangle shape next to him... I'm assuming that it's the "portal", but it's position in space isn't consistant with everything else. I love the head-piece/body armour, and tatoos though...
The SP and portraits are awesome, as usual. Do you work from photos with your SPs at all? The reason I ask, is that I always have trouble maintaining (or, failing that reestablishing) facial expressions with the angle, and lighting etc. when I'm drawing myself from life.
Great work, man! I always enjoy looking at your stuff.
You can choose to use your powers for good... or you can use them for AWESOME!
Hey, my crazy mexican, sorry for not stopping by to often.
Damn, I missed a lot of goodies. You sp's are looking top-notch. And the expressions, wowser.
Anyway, nice work.
Hope everything is well with you.
kingcoyote: Spot on critiques, I will develop this creature some more
for the next post, so ill take all of your coments in acount for sure,
about the photo thing I have never made a photo selfportait,
you see you can always use photo refs of other people from magazines,
but the beauti of using a mirror is that its almost as good as a life
drawing, and doing stuff form life activates diferent parts of your brain
that you dont use while coping from photos translating 3D to 2D is much
more streessfull for your brain and you learn the doble of things,
as far as expresions I dont mantain my face on the expresion all
i start with a losse gesture and then I try to tighten it up by going
back and forward on the expresion on my face, say... I consentrate on
how the the nose goes a littel up in my face when my lips are contrated
on anger and then I try to refine that area, and so on and on on the rest
of the features and overall expression that I already skeched on the gesture
underdrawing, (not that my system is all that good, actually Im pretty
dam far form doing good expresions ) I hope this helps you a bit
see ya and thanks for droping by!!
Pencilator: Hey you blond sweden drawing machine!!
