    Nice one. I like the degree of obscurity in it. It's detailed, yet you can't point at the detail.

    Thank you, nemolon

    Here's some stuff from the archives...The first two are cover mock-ups; the lovingly rendered one for a fanzine, and the sloppy one for a a magazine. The fanzine didn't materialize, but the magazine did. There's a lesson in this, I suspect. The studies on bovine anatomy and the sketch+render were made in preparation for a book that never happened. I think I might have posted the render earlier, but I also seem to remember removing it. So here it is, again

    Looks good Squiddie-kun. I'm really digging the last two inks especially. Or did you go pencils and then ink it? Nice atmosphere.

    Stark - The last one is inked, the prelim is graphite.

    Here are two new illos...the portrait is ink and the piggy was done with acrylics:

    Really? You did a portrait of a dead pig? So awful. Hahaha, like it though. Good composition on that one. And is that a SP? The confidence you exude in your ink markings are crazy. Keep rockin Buddy.

    Hey buddy! Beautiful inks as always. What are your tools of the trade? Do you prefer pen and nib or pocket pens? I need to work on my inks if I hope to reach your level, do you know of any good exercises I can do to train?

    Thanks!

    I like how the little grey "wash" (marker likely?) does wonders inside your ink portrait - how it softens it compared to the all-ink girl one above. And of course your line is a little less strict in it too.

    Thank you guys

    AustenFM - Well, the method depends. But for a portrait like the one above, I'll typically work out the structure in graphite. I don't do a tight render, but I need to get a good feel for what I am attempting to convey . And since this is going to be printed alongside an interview, likeness is an important factor. So, I need to figure a lot out during the pencil stage. When this is done, I turn to my Hunt 102 nib.

    If I have confidence in my preparatory work, and the structure/idea is sucessfully worked out, I ink fairly fast. This results in dynamic and bold lines, which are (hopefully) pleasing to the eye. When, on the other hand, my prelim work is -not- quite there, I tend to slow down when inking, and second-guess my every stroke. This is not a good thing. If you are simultaneously trying to create and fix something, the result will probably not be a success...the picture will look stiff and static. A lot of my work suffers from not having spent enough time on the preparatory work...sometimes due to deadline hell, sometimes due to lazyness

    As far as I'm concerned, "Rendering in Pen and Ink", by Arthur L. Guptill ( Watson-Guptill Publications) is the absolute authority on...rendering in pen and ink. It covers pretty much everything you need to know

    nemolon - Good observation! I did indeed apply marker to the portrait, primarily to boost the impression of his incredibly blonde hair. I had underestimated the value scale needed to get this across, so I had to "cheat"

    Here's a very unfinished 60 min mirc TD entry:

    I have the book you suggested on its way to my doorstep as we speak, thanks a billion for the recommendation, I can't wait to get into some good ink studies!

    That little anime gal is an interesting departure, very well executed. Nice rendering on that last one as well.

    I'll be back for more!

    -UPDATE FEB 18TH !-
    The book just came in the mail, I can't express how perfect this book is, it's everything I was hoping for and much much more. Thanks again buddy!

    AustenFM - Only happy to have been of some assistance, dude

    Tex - Deal!

    TheGnoll - I'm terrible at leaving comments myself, so I can't blame you...but I really appreciate your feedback

    Here's another page of thumbs. The idea here is to work as fast as possible, and to fill a page of similarly themed doodles with little or no reference. This way, I feel I get a clear idea of my shortcomings and which conventions I immediately go for. It's a kind of brain purge. Done with pencils and ballpoint pen, scanned and colored in PS.

    MY POKEMANS. LET ME SHOW YOU THEM.

    Great stuff there. That is a great idea. I think I should look into doing something along the lines of what you've accomplished here. These remind me of Arne's work as well.

    Thanks, Stark...it's more about desperation than confidence, tho

    Well, it's been, I dunno, 8 months since I had the opportunity to try life drawing for the first time, and today I had my second session. Here are some of my efforts:
