    hey thank you pigeon killer

    here's the beginning of a little WIP for you JERI
    It's Coletrane again Coletrane 2 will go into my portfolio since I gave away Coletrane 1 as a present to my dad

    this is step 2
    step one is the pencils
    step 2 is pure ink first with a pen then with a brush for the larger surfaces
    I fill is small black areas with the pen because the brush is too inacurat (for example the boarders of the hair and sax

    the pencils will be erased in most areas (like the mic where I already did it)
    to get nice clean lines
    the face wont be erased in most parts since it functions like an underpainting for the greyscale acrylics
    (be sure not to leave any erasor bits on the paper befor you go into reyscale)

    ah , good lines not too much to crit , you`re on the track

    tho` , i would suggest doing more portraits from real life And have you been in a life-study class before (i just looked through page two and 3) ? If not...go for it ! You are already drawing quite dynamic lines but you can always improve and i think going to a life-study class would suit you perfectly

    Hi corky nice to see you here
    I kind of met Azurelle yesterday ^^ well.. she said you brought her here
    I did attend a life drawing class but I didn't post the results cause I don't have a digi cam
    the guy leading the course was a bit too restricting in his comments imo so I'll see if I'll do it again ^^
    so thynk you man, keep rockin' (how's your tattooist issue going?)




    now for my WIP part 2

    step 3: greyscale
    media: black acryl paint + water a large brush
    after eraseing the pencils where they bothered me I gave all the "soon the be shaded" areas a basic light grey
    after that I just kept adding more paint to the mix and overworked all the parts of the pic
    I added the BG here too

    step 4: white
    media: white acryl paint + small brush and maybe a bit of water
    this is the fastest step since it's only there to correct mistakes and give finishing touches, like the reflections on the hair
    I use white to make my linework more subtle too (notice the chin)
    and to controle the BG more which was very loose in step 3

    hi! I think this might be my first post here ever! I've been a member for a little while and keep tabs on several sketchbooks!

    I really like yours! I constantly am looking for new inspiration or techniques and your style per se is one of my favorites! You use ballpoint pen very nicely! I just wanted to say that your sketches constantly give me inspiration!

    Hey, I totally forgot to write something about your stuff, I'm sorry.

    Well first of all, the pros:

    The poses are dynamic/ nice/ lotsa movement
    Good sense for male movement/ poses (since most artists seem to like painting pretty girls now a days that's really a plus ^_^)
    Lovely strokes/ lines/ technique with the pencil

    Cons:

    Heavy anatomy errors on most of the works
    (anatomy seems mostly correct on your most recent, but they do look heavily referenced - which ain't bad cause it shows that you got understanding for human figure)
    Personal taste: I'd like to see more detailed stuff from you and /or some works with color.

    hehe , yeah , I kinda threw her in here ^^

    Tattooist-issue is more or less a permanent thing for the next months/years as i have yet to finish school (thats what you get for drawing instead of doing maths and latin...) and also one year Zivildienst. But i guess thats plenty of time to get the needed money together and to become known of some tattooists. ^^

    On a more subject related note (after all this is the sketchbook section) :
    Try to push the contrast in your sketches a bit more. Sometimes they are too dark and sometimes they are so light that the feel of "volume" becomes a bit lost. Also the rendering is still a tad generic (which is a problem i have to work on to ^^) ...always use 2 light-sources and make them more distinctive. I guess that would also push the yet very strong "dynamic" feel of your work.

    btw. the last one is coming along very nice

    keep on rockin

    hahaha , well if i could find a job that pays well enough to ferget about school and is also somewhat safe im all for it It sucks to become 20 next month and still i have to go through the final exam ... but my fault so i have to life with it ....

    But PLEASE use 2 lights study old masters and you will nmotice that they are often using 2-3 light sources in their pictures. It looks far more "natural" and believable...also it would increase the volume of the image. I could draw you a small sketch to show hwat i mean , but oure on CA nad might probably find something about it yourself

    I thought #112 was really cool.....just the way it is. You said you were going to shade it in. Keep a version just like the one you show. I would like to see both side by side. Maybe I am wrong, but I think the one you show there will be the best. I like the lines. Its...I don't know how to explain it.....cool!

    And Elvis and Ray Charles - wow. So thats what you can do with reference. Those pieces seemed to be on a whole new level. Keep up the good work.

    And...again I am wondering about the story....the one that goes with #112. What happened there? Nah, don't tell me...it might spoil it. I really, really liked that piece. Do more sequentials!

    yo m,
    the stuff is lookin good man. especially lovin the coltrane, i like the way it turned out. in your pencil drawings, try to add a little variation in your lineweight. what i mean by this is to make the parts of the figure (or object) that are either heavier or in shadow have a thicker and darker line, and to the lighter parts and parts in the light have a thinner and fainter line. a good example of where this would be useful would be your "punk" drawing. ill do a P-over if i get a shot, its past my bedtime now. anyway, hope all is well with you, and thx for stopping by my SB before; i dont think i saw the reply until now, cause i havent been on CA for like, forever and a day. anyway, take care dude, and keep fighting the good fight.

    original and
    paintover

    @Corky: yo I kind of tryed it here... I don't think I got it right -.-"
    I'll keep trying
    @Chris:thank you dude, very glad to hear that
    @g.owen: nice to see you again, and thx for the feedback. I didn't keep the version you mean : /
    I just overpainted it
    @purb: I love you so much purb *hugs* thank you for the effort, the scanns come out a lot more light then the originals I got to do something about it
    @naomiful: heyhey didn't think you would reply here
    veeeeery kind of you (since I just droped a rather short line in your SB)
    I must confess to not do those anatomy studys from books, I draw from life when I got the possibility and visited a life drawing class
    but the outcome of the class was too big in format to scann and I don't own a digi cam
    thank you for the support (your soo much cooler then mine )


    so now for something completely different
    like art and shit
    after accidently whipeing out all my files I set up the OS new and intalled painter essentials again, I decided to give it a new try after leaving it alone frustrated the last time
    here is the outcome still in B/W since I suck at colour so much
    I plan to spend more time on this btw

    Hey inifinit long time no see .

    With your last update, I think the contrast is coming along just fine. Two things stands out to me regarding his anatomy, (1) his shoulder is too small, the shoulder muscles reaches down and aligns roughly at the nipples (2) his right hand should be visibly smaller than his left hand.

    I also reckon you can make his right wrist smaller to emphasis it being further away.

    Looking forward to updates.

    Hello ~! Life drawing is definitely key to getting down the figure hehe, but books offer what hopefully life drawing sessions don't offer, cut open figures with muscles and bones. >_>; The book I used most first was this book recommended to me by a figure drawing teacher called Artistic Anatomy by Dr. Paul Richer and Robert Beverly Hale and then recently with my last post a what seems like super old book I had that I never used called Anatomy, a complete guide for artists by Joseph Sheppard.

    I found that drawing parts (some bones, muscles, etc) over and over would help me learn them. Seems tedious and pretty damn boring, but I dunno.. sometimes I just get in the zone and WANT to draw the stuff over and over. :/ Afterwards it's a relief to know that when I am looking at the live figure, the knowledge of what's underneath makes sense with whatever is on top (shoulder muscles, kneecap, whatever). And then drawing from imagination.. blah blah you've heard it before ~

    A lotta times I copy from the book.. then turn around and try to sketch from memory a dude or w/e, and if I get confused, relook at the book for reference. But as everyone knows, it never is only one sitting of copying/drawing to get it right. Sooooo... keep practicing! haha -

    @JERI: thank you a lot for your crits, I tried to use them on the shoulder
    concerning the hands: they are of different size (I now even shortened them a little more )
    @naomiful: very kind of you to step by
    I'll have to get one of those books or cut open ppl da vinci style ^^"
    whatever works out easyer

    and then I'll practice practice practice

    Dude, there is some serious good stuff here, and I must say, it shows that you practice and do loads of sketching, the third page here is just heaps better then the first page (not that the first page sketches where that bad, not at all). Keep going at it!

    Cool man!
    Don't be afraid to step the value range up a tad, even just in the background. It can help the attention belong where it should you know?

    the screen of my fuckin iMac is broken and it's in repair (still in warrenty)
    so no updates till I get it back (writeing from the super slow-mo-no-scan machine my dad uses)
    it seriously needs 5 minuits to boot and another 5 to login into my win XP account

    I still am working there but only for 2,5 weeks from now are left
    so I'm driveing around smileing at the sun

    If with holiday you mean my "I'm going to try to get into this university, though I don't know shit about what a 1337 r0XX0r level the other contestants are on!" trip to Berlin
    it was nice, after I was denied at the uni I enjoyed myself a lot
    made some great friends too

    well monday is the day to go to my local college and try it out!
    but the standard is MUCH lower there
    seriousley, Berlin was hardcore

    my sketchbook
    friends Sketchbooks:Dile_, Stine
    my flickr go there if you want to see my photography stuff
