    the first sketch is dedicated to marko, the second one still needs some work.

    cheers,

    Doing great with your fabric in the first one. The second one, however is lacking in that department. Keep 'um coming though.

    You deserve a lot more comments and interest bonedog, very beautiful linework here. The compositions are varied and pretty good, which do your favour?

    The only thing is I wish that I could see something worked up and in a more complete form, you seem to have interesting things to tell visually =).

    More please?

    aph: thanks man. i appreciate it. i'm not sure which i prefer visually. finishing something is always the hard part for me... i tend to get hypercritical and forget to have fun.

    anyway, i took that barak drawing into photoshop and made it into a more illustrative piece.

    Wow... only five weeks between posts! Now that's real progress. Anyway, these are some character design thumbnails... I'm trying to learn to not be so anal when I draw and these little thumbs help with that. I hope they don't suck too hard.

    Hey, man! I didn't even realize that you were posting still! So quiet on here!

    Lovin' the stuff that you're showing off. Definitely pumping some inspiration into me to get cracking on my own sketchbook. I've been losing all sorts of steam as of late. So it's nice to see someone working so hard. Motivates me to do the same. Heh.

    What are you up to these days? It was good seein' you at the Montreal Workshop tho you probably don't remember me. Heh. Take it easy, man.

    PS: The Obama piece is beautiful.

    Zebz: heh.. i haven't been all that productive lately, either! i make sure i draw a bit everyday, though... but i've been really bad about making finished pieces.

    bumskee: gracias!

    tensai: thanks dude! i'll try and post more.

    here's a sketchpage from last night. the page with all the figures are mostly copies of claire wendling, whom i recently discovered. she's amazing.

    Here's a WIP. Still working out the composition (which is why I scanned it). Any suggestions/comments appreciated. I'm not happy with the form in the shadows, but I'm comparing myself to Nox's excellent shadow work.

    Been working 80 hours a week... haven't had much time to work

    Excellent work !

    Apart from your good technique and handling, I really like your feeling for composition. I understand what you mean on your last drawing, i did a painting with two books on top of eachother with a lemon and orange on it and it drove me nuts it is the powerfull perspective lines wich the books seem to create. I have the feeling that im looking at the pages of it from a bit too high a view

    I really like the Obama painting (and the first drawing ofcourse)

    Nice work

    Thanks for all the positive responses!

    I've been producing more than I've posting, but most of it's just little sketchbook scribblings. Here's my latest work in progress. I think some of the subtlety is lost in the scan.

    I've noticed I don't have nearly the amount of self-loathing and work-loathing that I used to have. It makes working a lot easier when you don't have to contend with negative emotions on top of the usual difficulties of drawing. In some ways I think learning to draw has changed my life because I realized that a blank sheet of paper has no expectations, so if I'm having a bad time it's because there's bad stuff coming from me. So I decided to stop drinking as much Haterade.

    Cheers,
    Bonedog

    Thanks Emily!

    I barely post anymore but I thought I'd throw up a few of things I've been working on. The double / triple portrait ones have some emotional weight attached to them so I've been kinda slow working on them. Cheers.
