    I like the armor design in the oc file. I think the guy has his neck a bit on the short side though. How long was your oc session?. I heard a lot of good things about OC.

    Make a sketchbook happy, feed it a tip to improve!

    What's up! It has been some time.

    Great stuff, just like I remember. And you've gotten even better!
    That's some really awesome armor up there, by the way. And that freakish old-man-baby a few posts back made me giggle.

    Toodles and good work!

    oh, here's my sketchbook.

    Also, my website. It would get beat up in a fight.

    Again, there's clear improvement since I last visited ages ago. The upper body of the ratman looks impressive! Something about the feet doesn't convince me though. They probably need more tiny details to highlight the unnatural looking size if you know what I mean.

    I've been wondering why you don't seem to be working on any comic. It'd be great to see some of your extreme expressions and poses full of action wrapped together by a story. Could be good practice to illustrate scenes based on descriptions and environments with different ankles - in a nutshell, everything at the same time rather than just character designs.

    Just my muddy 2 cents.

    sup man? i like what you've got here. pretty nice concepts, clearly improving constantly. I do have a general crit for you, it seems like a lot of your stuff could use more cowbell, I mean contrast. I understand with the pencil sketches, that type of thing doesn't always get pushed and that's okay cause it's just a sketch, but on the more 'finished' pieces a little more contrast would help.

    Keep up the good work!

    Chris

    Hello, Gnoll... what can I say... You are very talented guy... if you don't do something right now, I have no doubts you will cover it in a month after you become aware of the problem... You do have very impressive skills... so many things you can do... I might complain that sometimes your figures look stiff and off proportions, but it was mostly in the beginning of the book and you getting better and better... Sometimes you draw cautiously and slow and carefully, sometimes you draw like you have no tomorrow ,,, mind is free and not preoccupied with any thoughts or pleasing anyone or fears or...following some other person style...and I like those sketches the most... they are beautifully free and expressive and precise in the same time which is striking. You draw motorcycles the best, then creatures, then caricature like little people with huge fists, then landscapes, then women and the weakest is your coloring IMO.

    I btw love motorcycles badly... I love wind around me.
    I love so many images in your book and you know that I'm not into monsters and spooky stuff. but I love yours... but they are not spooky . hehe...

    If you don't mind I would say you and your creatures are extreme.. it is the strongest and potentially bad side of your art, as i see it... the poses , the faces, the outfits, the body language ... everything ... you prefer it intense, the extreme form, the one and only possible interpretaion... You know it is like Shakespeare's theater: very dramatic, someone dying in the end or getting insane... but there is another theater... did you hear this name? Anton Chekhov... this writer wrote plays where characters talk with subtext... . where heroine is saying something out of blue... like : what bird is screaming there? but it means something else... yeah ... so the actress was supposed to show her grief in some unusual subtle ways... lightly, with hints... I'm not saying it is better form in art... but it exists... so you hardly talk like this,,, If you don't mind I would compare you with Shakespeare's theater... open and extreme... easily to interpret...

    If you want to try your skills in the other way I would love to see how you manage this assignment... try to draw slight differences in emotion... like: sorrow and sadness, and melancholia and tiredness and boredom... and all should be precise and differ from each other... or more closer to you: rage and dissatisfaction and suspicion and despise and indifference...
    You don't have to do that... but that's what i think your art lacking: subtle nuances...
    Your colors... I think they look random, lacking harmony... I don't feel that your heart is there, they very often look sloppy and rushed... You need to observe more how colors effect each other, IMO... colors should talk too...
    Here is my favorite and some examples of what i talked about:

    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1170104165
    I like the pose and look of the creature , this one is not dramatic overall, but drama is in its clothes... they are extraordinary... I love it... very rich.

    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1171119988
    Great expression, easily to interpret but it doesn't make it bad. I love the fast free manner of the drawing... very elegant too.

    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1165241335
    Good composition, the wide wings sort of collect my eyes traveling on the page and return it to the center of the image with this tail swirl... The only thing is the pose of the rider,,, he is upfront to us,,, it is bit too simple looking.
    http://img488.imageshack.us/img488/5049/trollheafe6.jpg
    Awesome, just awesome, such a mad face... i would like some little cleaning maybe of some meaningless lines and maybe something to add, but overall it is great in any sense possible... very expressive.

    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1166870911
    That's style I love in your book... free and without any fear or following, your own style. Elegant.

    http://img218.imageshack.us/img218/1538/chow5tw.jpg
    Again, very fearless drawing, love it.

    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1170688239
    I like the drawing a lot and coloring... well it doesn't give me any information, except that you have no idea why you chose those colors and combine them, IMO... they are not meaningful or harmonious, IMO.

    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1169141230
    I like those, from imagination right? very nice and it will be even better I'm sure.

    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1163093241
    This one is so funny. it is not extreme in expression, very mild. but it is not ordinary person, so I think you are loyal to your style .
    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1162049846
    Heh, it is rare case, they are supposed to be intense, hehe, but they are two softies... like two young rich kids offering suncream to each other.
    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1167938224
    I liked this one a lot,,, it is already has the nice lyrical rare in your book mood... the wide squire, the silent beautiful buildings and evening soft lighting...I like it a lot.

    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1170619475
    Don't like the coloring, very sloppy, sorry .
    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1171058763
    Very nice subtlety in the face expressions and very good for descriptions of the characters... I like it.

    My favorite page is 18 in your book, it was some kind of mad creativity and nice freedom happening there.
    I love last update as well. very free.

    That's all, buddy. forgive me if something is not right in my comment. Bye.

    Hey ryan!
    Nice update. Are the last two pages personal ? They look like an assignement for something...
    It was cool oc-ing with you, even though my line connection was pretty bad
    Keep up the nice work !

    @sve: thank you very much for the long reply, sve, much appreciated

    "Sometimes you draw cautiously and slow and carefully, sometimes you draw like you have no tomorrow" hehehe yeah, this is very true...i just can't help it, sometimes i sit down, i want to draw, and i try and work as hard as i can.Other times, i just scribble while listening to somebody, or while thinking...and most of the time, for some bizarre reason, people seem to appreciate the scribbles more than the "serious" work...
    hehehe i love bike design.Probably i'm drawing bikes recently cause many of my buddies are buying bikes in these days, and find those iron horses pretty inspiring

    about the "easily to interpret" issue, well...most of my drawings are shown here and to my friends so maybe...who know, probably its just a way to express myself, and i do it just as i do it in a vocal way.Loudly and as extreme as i can

    about colors, i know, i know.I see loads of pictures here, and i do know the power of colors, they can express something i just can't express with my pencils alone...but its really frustrating.I try color once in a while, but i don't try hard enought nor often enought.I hope i'll improve on that side next year, since i'm going to study painting and illustration.It will come with time, i guess

    thanks for checking out the pictures and commentin them individualy, very nice of you.Glad you liked them, but i'm wondering why you chose work from some time ago, no recent stuff...

    thanks again for the comment, hope you'll stop by again soon

    @DanielC: hey Dan, OCing with ya was cool, and yes, that connection problem suck...but nevermind, we'll try again once you get the new connection up n runnin' yes, those were school assignments, i don't usually post that kind of stuff, but i just wanted to show 'em, for some reason

    ok, some more doodles from these days.Proportion issues, bad lines, and pretty rushed doodles, but meh, there's always time for improvement

    ciao!

    Abou comics, i'll go study coics and illustation next year...
    Wow, sounds like a class for you if anything.

    I like the rythmic way you've stylized the minithug's legs because it's so obvious. The superheroes' thighs have some disturbing weaknesses apart from Spiderman's, which look great. Try to remember the bent shinbones from every view and maybe some ref studies about differently bent knees could be useful.

    i think you should challenge yourself and play around with different mediums other than digital, especially before the school year starts. You would want a little experience with various mediums rather than not the first day of class. And about the colors, remember how bad I was when I started with them? well I still suck but it has gotten better. So if I can do it, so can you, just have to put in the effort.
