    haha the faded-in face of the drunk guy made me laugh, not sure why.

    don't give up on drawing the ladies, keep working on things you're not used to drawing. you have already got lots of practice doing badass guys/monsters in armour



    ...page 6 is so empty...

    Cool stuff, and you're actually updating regularly unlike me, so good job. Congrats on the stars too. I think you were starting to get somewhere with the renderings so lets see some more of those. Sorry for not posting for so long, if you still are curious as to what I meant about a sense of weight on that drawing from a while ago, let me know and I'll do a paint over or something. I think thats all I got, keep drawing.

    @octopus interphone:thanks...don't worry, page six will fill up just like the other ones

    @Avatar Jimmy:Thanks.You can do a paintover if you want, but that one's finished and approved now I thought i had more time for finished drawings, but actually now i'm too busy with other things

    Ok, i started some kind of sketchbook with something i found around the house...the pages are really small, but should be enought to draw.Nothing spectacular tho

    Don't know if you have but you should give kneadable erasers a go... They never mess up the paper if that's what you're worrying about. But nice monsters again and good to see some hand sketches too.

    @smuli:thanks for the suggestion.I actually DO have a kneadable eraser, just that i never use erasers.Guess i should start

    @this1: LOL.That's what alchool n stuff does to your brain, i guess.I did that very late in the morning, too hot to sleep so i just sat in bed drawing and sweating...heheh actually i got nothing against pineapples, i just drew whatever went to my mind oh well

    ok, here's another hyper quick concept for TGFX project, took me half an hour.argh.

    You'll get the finished piece tomorrow

    Thought i'd return the favor since you posted a few times in my sb =)
    Those updates look good. I can't crit the pencils since they look great, but that last pic could use some highlights and some darker values. Like in the arm pit, or between the legs ().
    Anyway, i'll come back so keep posting !!

    NIIICE update dude, I really dig the design of that one, thoug I would love to see a full rendered BADASS finished version of this. Right now the rendering is lacking contrast and looks really, well "flat" (although I think that you did this on purpose). SO keep at ti dude and give us some more of that stuff, looks really sweet

    I think these are great designs mate. I'd suggest you focus on pose development. Its a pain in the ass, coz i cant fuckin do it yet.

    yea, kian brings up a good point, your creaturs and sketches are very well done, and awesome to look at, but pose work would be like the garnish that doesnt define the work, but accentuates it... i have an idea for your gill hunter, maybe its a dumb one, maybe its too much work, but if you had him either leaning on his hind legs so it would look more like he was attacking or something it would look cool, or maybe im just a dork...

    just wanted to replies, since i don't really find anything decent to post, sry

    @Recursive End: thanks for the comment.Yep, I guess you're right about that, i was hoping the pencil shadow would show but it doesn't.I'll do something about it

    @Gloominati:Thanks ...damn, before your comments i was hoping this WAS a rendered finished version .Ok, then i guess i have to push the highlights n shadows

    @Kian:Thanks a lot.LOL i thought i did enought pose exercise in the last page, but it seems its never enought.But you guys are right, i was too much in a hurry to devolop the concept, and i just didn't think about a decent cool looking pose.

    @this1:thanks for keeping an eye on this thread mate ok, i see nobody likes the pose
    No problem, it wasnt a stupid comment.I have to work on the other two gill hunters anyway (another male and a female) so i can practice some other poses.Centaur-ish creatures piss me off, i just hate the fact of having two rib cages, dunno why

    ok, i'll update with something decent sooner or later

    ciao

    I love the energy of the green monster. The cat-man centaur tiger thing really needs a stronger lighsorce and contrast, he looks very grey and washed out. nice design though

    I can only humor Olsen. Great growth in this SB. I really like the tiny sketchbook pieces and the niffty self portraits. the f*cking drunk page is hilarious. Those Oni, chinese Fantasy stuff from the beginning really caught my eye ´cause that´s pretty unique theming. Not many people from Europe do this and you pull it off very well. I´d like to see more of that kinda stuff.

    Good on ya

    I absolutely love your sketch style... very loose, almost appears effortless. I'll be keeping an eye on you.

    Cool stuff as ever man! seems like ages since ive posted anything about your work. Good to see you trying new things to do, instead of doing what comes naturally. Try putting a ground shadow on the vehicle to bring it off the page a little with a grey marker. Might not be essential as its only a sketch, but why not give it a shot. Cheers!

    Hya Gnoll


    From those last post this particular caught my eye. I like it but:

    Gnoll's Stuff *UPDATE 01/10*

    The front legs seem way to short and very together. That´s not widde enuff apart. For more kickass posture the legs should be further apart. That´s not a very solid stand even for an four legged character.
    I´d REALLY like t´see that reworked ´cause I like yer lions so much. ´xept they seem a bit bored.
    Maybe check out some more Hogarth poses and work from there?

    Your Hourglas man again, huh? Cool. "Eat my short" yeah! EAT my DIRTY SHORTS!!!!

    Great, finally you've updated. I love the looseness and great level of detail in the machine drawing, the gadgets look believable too... Even though it's a sketch, you could have made it much more 3d and easier to comprehend with some line weight though (as well as the next sketch... his left arm and front legs seem to blend to the background). I know it's probably not the most important thing but just a tip to still raise the appeal a bit with little effort. The minotaur looks a bit stiff from the hip down, no idea how to fix that though.

    Great work all in all, keep it up! (Though as you've said, the subject matters could vary a bit more... How about some more environment-oriented work for a change? )

    @Kuniva:Thanks a lot as usual.Yeah, i probably will try out putting some value down on some oftyhese sketches.The vehicle is ceratinly difficult to understand.

    @bbwolf: thanks.I agree about the pose.Guess yes, it needs reworking.Its kinda hard for me to find a cool stance.Anyref could help.I will practice poses

    @blanquish:yeah, i need some cleaning up.Here's some "colour (i tried )

    @smuli:thanks for the comments.YEah, i lack variety.I got some nice dvds to train on enviros.

    ok, here's my final entry for this week's CHOW.Dunno if it actually suits, but i wanted to try it.Finally i opened PS again

    @heartbeat: thanks for the comments.I don't actually have tim to finish thisu nfortunately, but it deninately need refinement.Aw well

    Anyway, sorry to bump this, but wanted to reply and add the character concept too:

    Marlinians:

    The sport of bull shark fighting is very popular in the aggressive race of the marlinians.They are an acquatic race, a cross of human and sail fish features.Males usually grow an impressive blue crest on their back, too help them swim at terrible speed.The have primitive but efficient culture, and their only natural enemy are the Giant Bull Sharks of Kahli (their native planet).When they manage to capture one, they usually enclose the shark in a coral reef, were young and more experienced males fight agains the shark/s to prove their courage and swimming ability.They usually first attract the sharks attention with their back-sail, swimming back and forth, they when the shark is badly wounded they kill him with arpoons made or carved corals.The number of shark's teeth necklaces is a diplay of power in males of the marlinian race.

    ciao

    Nice character design but the lighting could be worked on. I don't think a lighsource coming directly from the viewer is ever good for defining the forms.. You also have highlights in conflicting places I think, like the throat and top of the chest muscles. Don't know if you were going for some kind of ambient lighting but to me, the brightest highlights just suggest otherwise. The fact that you have rays drawn there also makes me wonder why you haven't made the sunlight any more intensive on the character.

    But great to see coloured work from you.
