yeah, cool stuff!
I especially like the animals and your selfportraits
and welcome to ca. keep it up
Nice to see u posting stuff. I like the animals most, those sp´s could use a bit more work (shading and such) though . I know u got more to show, so lets see some more! and keep this up to date! I´ll be watching you.
monotony, kicek - thank you
sketchbook from today:
some hands (from life),
This stuff is decent, but I would recommend trying to conquer realism through life drawing and photo copying. At least try it and see how close you can copy something.
monotony, kicek, goodbye..fromthevoid- thanks for your replies
its been a while.. vacation got me out of workingmode...
here is some stuff from my sketchbook and some digital attemps, all photoshop and all from the last two weeks:

some new stuff from the last, like, weeks...
some studies each about five minutes, one which took about twenty minutes, and a pencil+photoshop-charakter, trying to get more loose

I really like those studies! great stuff, I dont know if it's because they are rom life or not, but the anatomy is MUCH better than in the sketches before...
You got the technique down, concerning pencilstuff, now comes the anatomy. not only on the body, but also the face...
where does which muscle go and what does it do... where is which bone, how long, etc... knowing these facts will extremely improve your drawing, especially when working without reference...
My current areas of interest: Linework, Composition, Visual Library
embee - thanks a lot! you are right, should do some studies of anatomie, bones, muscles and so on
just two quick sketches from today, which i kinda like. next time i`ll post more!
Things are looking good in here, you're hitting all the right things, some environments, some portraits, some head studies, characters, and some figurative stuff. My main concern is with the figurative stuff, its all fairly stiff, and kind of repetitive, which can be easily remedied, although it'll take some work. Dig up some reference, a model, preferably, but if you can't, grab yourself one of those little poseable mannikin dudes and do some gestures of him. Put him in all sorts of wonky positions, all spread out, hunched over, thrown back, on its side, laying down, from above, from below, just anything you can think of. Think of the mannikin as a person and as a traditional model, where he might move at any time and he's full of vitality and weight. Use loose lines and just imply his 'movements'. Doing weird exercises like that can really help to give some fluidity to your characters and figures. If possible, try to work in either charcoal or ink, something dark and powerful, so the marks have to be few and thoughtful, but lend themselves to movement.
Hopefully that whole rant will prove to be a useful exercise. Anyhow, throw down some more drawings!
Obvious troll is obvious
that fat kid - thanks a lot. i know what you mean, youre totally right. should try some of that stuff
the gnoll- thank you bro!
here is some sketches from my sketchbook, and two of my first painter attempts. just mindless studies, have to get better with the technique first.
its been a while since my last post, so i suppose i should do a bigger one...
some pencildrawings from life, and some of my newer digitals.
i find enviroments really difficult.
ello chris.. we missed u today , where have u been anyway? as for the update, jan and me are admiring ur lifedrawings at the moment, very good work, uve improved tons! the first one is my fav by far, clean confident lines. as for the colored stuff, id say use less black for the dark parts. the environments are cool, u could add some more atmosphere to most of them though. good work brother, see u on friday maybe?!?! haha shit.. havent done anything yet, röhrl will kill my anus.
kicek- thanks a lot buddy.
love your pen and ink stuff, essp. the landscapes above. try to loosen up with your personal stuff, they are much stiffer (so it seems to me) than the drawings from life. keep at it. =)
audrade - thanks a lot man. i think i should do some gestures and quick studies to loosen up a bit
two speedies from today:
some warmups and a cowboy who got shot backwards during a duel.. just playing around with painter and ps. i almost like the rougher version more then the other one.
Ey bro, great stuff! You do need some little more studies to make stuff even better but you know that right? I can tell by your sweet anatomy studies, just keep on doing studies and your experimental stuff will shine out even more!
(especially liking the sketches on post #13)
dejakhalz - thanks man, i agree most important thing right now: anatomy and figurative studies, should do more of those
here is my first attempt on a digi sp. could have been more satisfying if it didnt took me so long, but fuck it.
Damn you have talent, I agree with the above posters, your landscapes are definately your strongest side. But figurative studies are always fun so keep it up! And thx for stopping by my place.
Hey, nice stuff.
I especially like the hand studies in your 2nd post.
..and you're from Germany, too
faust - thanks a lot!
ploepp - thank you miss. you should open a sketchbook, i want to see some of your stuff too.
here are the first doodles i did, i think since juli. so... back to work finally:
