    Heya Merlin,

    Nice works here! I like your pencil sketches the most But everything is good!
    I think that on your females (well maybe just the last two), you tend to make the space between the nipples and the navel a bit too much (should be approximately one head, ofcourse this differs with such foreshortening as on your last one).
    On your last digital I think that shortening the nipple-navel space, making the hips a bit wider and the arm a bit larger will fix most of the proportion issues.

    Post your lifedrawings and sketches from Hellmouth!! ^^
    Love
    Marleen.

    NoŽ - Now that you say it, you are right about the proportion, thanks for the reminder.

    I went to the Hellmouth sketchmeet a week ago, had a lot of fun. Here is a selection of life drawings I did there. And I've been doing some fashion sketching the last couple of days.

    some more fashion stuff. These are done without reference, as you can see, some proportion issues. And bad marker colors, ah well, had fun making them. hope you like them.

    I've been thinking about making this for some time now and I finally started it. Old dude with streetwear listening to iPod. Might add some bling bling. And the clothes will get some vivid colours.

    I really enjoy your digital work, do you usually paint traditionally?

    I do more digital painting. But I also like to work traditionally, I enjoy working with oils.

    teena_mom - Thank you!

    In september I started illustration at the art academy Minerva in Groningen and I'm having a great time there. Here is some work I made for school. The fashion illustrations are from reference and the others from life.

    I've been painting (traditional) a lot lately, trying to get the hang of it. First two are acrylics, the other oils. Comments & crits are welcome.

    Teh Gosu - Heey man! Thanks! The deformed skull was inspired by the skulls by Phil Hale, they are amazing, like the rest of his work.

    Hey, man, how're you doing? Already witnessed some of those sketches firsthand and they are extremely impressive! You rendering as well as line-skills are superb, like here for example: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1235410421

    Shit, only respect and admiration, sir! I'm humbled to even study in the same city as you!

    Lyno - thanks

    ~Faust~ Hey! Danke! Wow "sir", just call me Merlin . Yeah Groningen is great!

    At school I got a great assignment, which is "design your own creature". I'm totally free on how I'm going to do it. Don't have a good idea yet, so I just made some sketches, all I know is that I want to create one without eyes.

    Awesome stuff man. Could it be possible that you like ladies legs? =)
    I love the sketchbook pages and the traditional illustartion stuff a lot, esp number 2 in post #99. I think your digital could use more work, especiall ythe handling of edges.
    I just realized on the last sketchbook page (the one with ELLE) the lowers girls face on the left page is from a major fachion show. I really liked the images of these girls with nets on their heads wearing their hace in greasy curls on their faces. Quite original actually, though it doesn't sound as awesome as it looks. Any chance you've got the link?

    Cheers

    PS: Sry if I'm being dump, but is Groningen in Germany or the Netherlands? I am thinking about going to a school for illustration, but seems like I'll be attending art academy in stuttgart.

    Janos - thanks. Yeah I love lady legs, especialy the ones with the slim ankles, the ones where you think they are about to break with every step they make ;P.

    In what way could I improve my digital stuff, and what do you mean with the edges?

    I just bought the ELLE magazine, I don't have the links to the net girls, sorry. But you could check out style.com, maybe it's there somewere.

    Groningen is in the Netherlands . But it's pretty close to Germany. Good luck on your admission! (if you haven't been accepted yet)

    Update of the creature design. Not sure if the perspective of the legs are correct.

    Yoo Merlijn, sup bro. Finally got to do Illustration somewhere I see
    Small update, I'm leaving Zylom per 1st of April. Don't know yet what I'm doing next but I've got some stuff in the proverbial pipeline.

    Nice stuff you've got here, especially the traditional ones. About the creature one, you should check out Richard Dobles creature design vid (if you haven't already), it's pretty neat for this kind of work.

    Tuner people, not Turner.

    A mind that wanders so much, it brings back souvenirs.

    MaartenR - Thanks. The meeting was last year in June. 3 days sketching, talking, eating, drinking, drawing, having fun.

    NoŽ - Heya! There are a lot of skilled people in my class, each with there own style. Thank you, I like to experiment from time to time.

    Here's a sketch for a pin-up calendar I'm making for school. And some sketchbook pages.

    Man, you're so good!
    It's fun to browse through your SB, nice studies and different media, I like!
    Want to see more

    I also saw that you are in first year Illustration at Minerva. I'm doing Fine Art and Education at the AHK in Amsterdam, but I don't like it anymore.
    I've heard alot good things about Minerva and I want to try to go there too (although it's a bit too far away), mainly because I've heard that they appreciate old school traditional drawing/painting more.
    I don't know if this is right, I'm going to the Open Dag friday.
    But when I see how good you are and that you said everyone in your year is very good... I'm afraid I must study by myself some more years, to get better haha
