    Thanks Guys, youre awesome, and far too kind. rendered out these two fellas. Noone else seems to be doing Timm-style stylization noir characters so I figured I might do it myself =D Im such a fan of Bruce Timm.

    Lifedrawing. Various lengths. A bit rusty, and sooo much to learn! Fun though.

    Riktigt snygga grejer hr mannen! Du har riktigt bra grepp om ljus och form och kan beskriva det riktigt snyggt. Fr att inte tala om stilen!

    Sorry for the absence folks.

    Thank you for your kind compliments and encouraging words.

    @Ramalooke: Im not entirerly sure to be honest. I think around 5-8 hours on the detective including my experimentation phase. I tried different levels of finish and did some colours. In the end I went with a B&W style to try and stay closer to old noir movies. The girl went faster since I had already established a style, maybe 3 hours. Patience is important!

    Some lifedrawing and moleskine. Damn, I need to improve on my lineweight. If you see more flaws please feel free to point them out. Id greatly appreciate it.























    Take Care!

    Thanks guys! =D Youre too kind

    Wow, i found this blog.

    http://invisibleinkblog.blogspot.com...ging-verb.html

    this really sums up some of my current thoughts on drawing.

    "So what if when we sat down we gave ourselves a task other than producing words: Changing the verb from writing to storytelling may change the way we think about the work.

    This would require thinking more than we wrote. We have years of training telling us that thinking is not working. But it’s the hardest work of all. Producing words is relatively easy if they don’t have to add up to anything. Or if one believes that somehow a story will be born out of the act of typing."

    mmmm. And some drawings. Next time, I want to post stories.

    Truly impressive stuff, kaktuzlime. Your progress from 2006 is a constant inspiration.

    I've got to ask: Are there any sources of study you would recommend? Any books, websites or videos that have helped you a lot? I'm always interested in what helped people get to where they are.

    Running a little short of time, going to a concert soon.
    Knarf - Thanks! =D
    Sunny - Thanks buddy. I really want to push away from that smooth look myself and become more painterly, like Anders Zorn. I guess the trick is to use a soft smooth airbrush, and be patient and spend lots of time =) will yield a smooth result.
    Yor - Thanks! Im really not all that
    Superet- Hi mate! Thanks for the compliments I wrote a pretty long post about learning and attitude a couple of pages back.
    http://conceptart.org/forums/showpos...&postcount=660
    The short version is basically, "The drawing manual" by Glenn Vilppu, and "Drawn to life" by Walt Stanchfield. I list some other sources in my post. Id happily answer more specific questions you might have. Take care and good luck in all of your drawing endeavours! =D
    Mr. Scribbles - Thanks! Too kind Im always happy to be able to entertain!

    More Skechbook. Dominancewar starts soon!! Im sooooo Stoked! =D =D =D





    Take Care!

    Wow, thank you, kaktuzlime. I'll definitely look into those books - no pun intended.

    Let me know if you're ever up for being a mentor. ;D

    Superet- Thanks, Im glad to be able to help. Everything you need to learn to become a great illustrator you can learn on your own. Im flattered by your consideration, but I dont have time for anyone but myself at the moment.

    ChateNoire- Thanks! =D I love faces!

    Yor- Thanks buddy! Doing digitals is kinda hard for me since I dont have a working computer (and too poor to buy one), and everything I create here at the office automatically belongs to the company. I guess I could do fanarts and studies =) Dominance war is a exception though, so Ill post a bunch of process shots from that


    I was given a free ticket to a concert by an old man who attends the same lifedrawing as I am. He plays the violin in the orchestra, and we wound up talking about french impressionism. Anyway, the conductor was a blast to try to draw. He was russian. Rarely do you see such displays of life and passion in real life.

    My attempt at trying to capture some of his gestures. Nothing high brow, but in my opinion, far more difficult than a 10 hour rendering. Theres nothing to hide behind. Trying to find the emotions and impulses prompting the poses. On a technical level trying to focus on angles and lines of action.

    You've got some great movement in your gestures and the hands in post#739, Wow!
    Just a question is there anything you would like some more in depth critique on, instead of just "great work"?
    Since I and quite a few others like your stuff "mistakes" don't really jump out, so if there is something we(your fans ) can do to help you just say so. Or just keep rocking it

    MatejaPetkovic- Thanks! Yeah, its not a style for everyone. Its just the way I like to draw =) Im happy some skill shows through. Thank you for looking and the stars. I really like your art!

    Bruce- Thanks buddy! I always appreciate one line of critique more than a hundred of praise. Im trying to focus on storytelling aspects, and I would in particular love thoughts and crits on how Im not communicating a story clearly enough =) Obviusly rendering and drawing technique is always appreciated. And I love to hear how Im not doing enough environments, because I dont. Whatever pops out as mistakes

    KT- Thanks Mate! =D

    whoa, more life drawing! Its the best practice, and the only place and time where I feel completely at home doing something good with my time & life.

    ohh nice. they all give the impression of being the same character type, like they're variations for the look of a show. and the blonde one reminds me of bruce timm
