    Merlin's sketchbook - Update September 25 - nudity

    Well, here is some of my stuff. Some of you might have seen the first two already that I posted on my other account, that doesn't work anymore.

    My first digital painting ever. Still need to put a highlight on the eyes.

    This one isn't finished. I'm not going to finish it because I have worked on it for too long and it was getting difficult.

    Right now I'm practicing the anatomy so that someday I hope to make some very cool characters without the use of reference, like some of you guys can do around here.

    Sorry if my english is bad.

    lovely start for your book! wonder why anybody hasn't replied yet... those digis are amazing. love how you did the hairline and the hand in the first one. and the full figure painting is really good, too. doesn't look unfinished to me (those shoes are amazing!). but your 4th (the pencil) is my absolute favourite. great rendering and you caught a very nice mood there, too. and the last one shows you have a lot more going on in your head. would love to see some more, but as i said, great start! see you, cheers,
    stine

    blacky - ha ha, I just gave it a try and something good came out.

    Thestjester - yeah first one. thnx.

    you want to see more... hmm don't have much. I could make a selfportrait.

    This a delightful surprise . Beautiful paints, almost thought the first one was a picture. Creepy texture on that finger, I like it.

    hi merlin,

    I promised I'd visit your sketchbook during the meeting, so that is what I'm doing now some of the sketches I already saw in your sb, but those you did digital I haven't. I must say that they look really good! it was nice meeting you.

    yours,

    haldor

    Hey there!
    I like what you've got going here. Those digi's look amazing!
    I think a thing you could work on is to try to mix photo reference with imagination, because what I've seen from you is eiter pure imagination or almost exactly from photo reference.
    Also I see a lot of things in this SB that must have taken you very long to complete. Do some quicker things also, maybe just lines (as I'm trying at the moment).
    I hope to see some more updates soon
