    in, very cool stuff.Not only great lines, but great colours too.I've thought of where I heard about the weasel dude.Very nice illustration and good start for a sculp, what he reminds me of is a character from the "Redwall" series of books written by Brian Jaques.Anyway, great stuff as usual.

    Keep 'em coming!

    ciao

    KingThorvar- Glad to hear it.

    DeadBunny- Hey thanks. I have done some Diterlizzi studies in the past. Guess some of that influence made its way in, though I am kind of surprised that you would compare my "style" to his. What do I dream about... stay tuned, maybe you'll find out...

    sinz- The blue pencils are just the Prismacolor branded Col Erase pencils, stock # 20044. A lot of scanners have trouble getting these pencils accuratly though, so I would suggest using regular graphite pencils it you want stuff to scan well. I use Tombow pencils; they are kind of expensive, but worth the price. The graphite in them is the best I know of.

    Skeiff- Thanks for checking in. You have a nice SB going yourself.

    Darktwin- No problem. You seem to get something out of my comments, and I think about the times people helped me. Just passing it on.
    Pretty much everything on here is drawn with paper and pencil. Digi lines are okay, but lack the subtlety and touch of texture that I like, so I usually only do tablet sketches for fast prep work and such.
    Yeah, I do tend to use a light palette a lot. I try to make the coloring technique befitting of the rendering style, and work with it, rather then compete with it. Not where I wanna be yet, but getting there I hope.

    ashrumm- Yes. Kickin' off page 3! Hope it's a good one.

    TheGnoll- I hadn't heard of Redwall before. I should check it out.

    Alright, some stuff to start this page off. I was going to color these 2, but I think they are better as just drawings, I couldn't find a color scheme that I liked for them.

    Amazing work. Big fan of the coloured sketches, excellent choice of colours, so a few seems perhaps a bit desaturated, though that may be a style choice (I like it personally, just thought I'd point it out though )

    Since I hate posting without crits -- I can't really see much, the only things I can notice in the latest sketches are in the second image, the thighs appear too long, perhaps because it looks like they are coming towards us. And in the last image, the position of the hand/arm is possible, but that pose is extremely uncomfortable to hold.

    Anyhow, keep it up, I want to see more...

    aeonflame- "...the only things I can notice in the latest sketches are in the second image, the thighs appear too long, perhaps because it looks like they are coming towards us...", You where right on about that; I adjusted the pic and reposted it over the old one. Better?

    tensai- Thanks, had that sitting around for a while, thought I'd throw it on here.

    Beelow- Sure thing

    Cool sketcheroos. Not too crazy about your line though, the dark bold outline never looks good unless it's paired with a very simple design and the outline is very thick to emphasize the shape, the trouble with a bold outline is it can actually destroy the shape by calling attention to the line. Other times there's a bit of something like petting going on where the line is pieced together from a bunch of small lines like here http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g2...r20061post.jpg. Possibly look at J.D. Harding's book "On Drawing Trees and Nature" for some ideas on line.

    i'm really loving how you draw your female characters
    particularly the eyes, and you really capture the curves in the form too

    WoW! You've been busy. I'm loving the way your handling hair in your pieces. Your hair has personality! I'm also liking how some of the pieces have a very gentle peaceful feel. Some of the women remind me of "Mucha".

    Awsome line work as usual!

    ohhhhhhhhhh holy ... wtf!!?!?!?!?

    your artwork is so great, your my favorite drawer on this board.
    ok others maybe can better paint but your style is wonderfull.
    the expressions are more then fantastic, so real!!!!!!!! like a disney film or smth!
    the combination of comic and that expressions is perfect...

    but 1 crit:
    the girl on this pic looks strange on the hips, because their are too many curves.

    i hope you understand my english hahaah

    trying to build a portfolio myself...

    oh well keep up it!

    bmumble-

    Artguy- Thanks dude.

    johnny78- I don't sleep as much as I should. That's why I just took a break.

    Dile, stuter- Thanks guys.

    Haxxxor- Wow, that's a major compliment to say the least... maybe you should look around some more? Yeah, I agree that that pic you pointed out looks a little funky. Something to think about next time.

    Arne S.- Yeah, I would agree with that.

    smrtbob- Thanks

    Been away, didn't do a ton of SB, but here's something at least.

    eeeugh, i'm wiped out, this is heavy...
    good progress yo
    the masters have taught you well,
    keep up the mini stories in your drawing, i enjoy finding meaning behind each piece.
    I want to see some action poses now, running through the forest!
    or the desert, do some desert stuff. heck just do an entire project in a desert!
    Deserts are freaking awesome!
    I saw some amazing cactus' at a green house i went to, that is something to study for designs, those thing have evolved in some crazy ways to survive.
    i'm glad you are loosening up this summer, the animal studies have helped your expand some more too!
    all this in two years, you have done well glad to join you in your artist journey!
    My vision is shaking…I feel sick, must stop here…goodbye.

    Very nice SB, I adore flowing lines.

    The art nouveau influence is very apparent in quite a few of your pieces, and from what I can see is probably the reason why the dark outer lines come into play. (Correct me if I'm wrong here.) Armando I disagree with that particular comment. For most of the pieces here, I can't say that I feel there is any detraction from the flow. I guess we all have our personal bias. I'm liking the lines.

    Cwn Annwn- I do really like art nouveau. Like everything, it just accounts for part of the influence. I used to really use that dark outline a lot (like in some of the drawings on the first page), but I'm trying to be more selective with line weights now, trying to step it up and not just lean on the same trick over and over. I do feel that you can use dark outlines effectivly, but I think it's more of a question of choosing a rendering style that's befitting of your subject.

    Myako- I am indeed a big fan of Disney (mostly older stuff) and Studio Ghibli work.

    Now in 3D!
