    as you can see I do alot of imitation art (if that is what it is called) ive been away from this hobby of mine for way too long.. like 8 years too long.

    my favorite things to draw really are robots, mechanoids, cyborgs, etc...etc. but my strengths I feel are comic art, im not so good with realistic art.

    welcome to CA

    I started art again about 1.5 to 2 months ago after 20 plus years. All I can say is draw something everyday and from life or refs as much as possible. A good anatomy book wouldn't hurt either

    I want to get into some coloring of my sketches.. but I dont have the time right now.. so this is what I got.
    this last one with the dude in the trenchcoat I got from watching "Moonwalker"

    anyone know any good programs to color scanned pics with? or are pastels or markers the way to go?

    Hey after all this practice on inking, I think it would be beneficial to do some new drawings and warm up your technique again. Start with 1-5 minute doodles. Then if you get the time do some longer pieces. I going to say this before anyone else does (cause I know they will): Do some life drawings suck as human anatomy studies. Start with the male anatomy. The comic book stuff, while fun as it is (I know because that was part of my start into art), is not going to help you much in terms of getting believable characters. Even the comic artists had to study anatomy, like Jim Lee, Marc Silvestri, Todd Mcfarlane... all the way to Frank Frazetta and Simon Bisley. If you get the time, go to the Fine Arts section or do a search for the official life drawing thread and checkout some of the fine works. Plus definitely don't forget to do a search for Mentler. Alright enough of my babbling get to it!

    FULGORE!!!! man that guy was awsome! loved me some Killer instinct back in the day...

    anyways, My advice would be to avoid drawing stuff you think is cool. That sounds wierd, and awfully boring, but sitting down and doing a few months of elementary basics like simple still lifes, color wheels, gesture life drawings will do you a world of good when you come back to doing the stuff you enjoy doing.

    keep at it! keep posting!

    well another fun filled week. I post this like its monday cause it feels like monday (even though its tuesday) I would have more pics up but I installed the prerelease version of Windows Vista (RC2) over the weekend and was busy getting all the kinks smoothed out.. still a few to work over but otherwise a very good OS, I would have to say its the best one microsoft had created.. its actually useful! LOL

    Vista is a very graphically intesive OS, the colors and textures even just on the desktop are fabulous and what is nice is that there is very little memory used up in that process.. with just windows running and some back ground utilities Im only using up 30% of my 2gigs of ram.

    and now onto the bad part, because its the prerelease version... my printer/scanner does not work with vista.. so thus no pictures.. I had a new one to scan but wasnt able to because of that.. I will hopefully resolve the issue or be hitting up a friends scanner.

    hopefully more art to follow.

    Ok, so I still dont have my printer issue resolved.. but instead I just used my wife's laptop to access the scanner and upload my pics.

    here is an older one and a new one.. the rose is the older of the 2 sketches and I thought to ink it to see how that would turn out.

    I had this interesting image in my mind for the "self creation" sketch.. and I though to attempt to draw it, I had to use alot of picture references for skeletal structure and muscle anatomy.. but I think I did alright for my 1st time drawing bones or exposed muscles, Im thinking of continueing a sort-of story line with this pic as this character pieces himself/herself (still havent though of the sex yet) together and becomes more human.. or cyborg (havent given much thought to that yet either)

    I wanted to have a scene behind the subject that depicted a junk world where this person is finding pieces to improve/build upon itself. I got the idea from a piece drawn by an artist that i cannot remember.

    Criticism is of course always welcome.. but please... be gentle
