I'm opening a new sketchbook here at CA, because it's been a long time that I don't post here and I thought it would be cool to begin from the scratch again. My works still have a very heavy manga/manhwa influence but I'm trying to reach a next level for my style. I dunno if I'll make it, but I won't give up.
I'll post some sketches that I did over the last weeks.
I'll post more value studies in the next post and some master copies.
Thanks for visiting,

LOL! You changed your username, man!
I didn't know. I had to do a research, but I'm glad that you found mine sketchbook and that I know now about the username change now. I was so absent that I wouldn't know... XD~!
I'm posting the value studies that I said that I was going to post...
A rough Wolverine that I did today. It's full of flaws, I know, but I was too lazy to fix them. I guess I should study more structure before doing value studies. Bleargh.
I'm going to show a work in progress from a skull study that I'm doing...
I still have a long way 2 go and it doesn't look like the reference at all.
That's sad, but I gotta keep working on it.
That's all for now!
And that's what I thought about you nickname change... although I think your previous nickname was cool! XD~ I think it's good to change sometimes...
I finally finished the frontal skull study and I dunno how I could do until this point. I know it isn't something amazing, but I'm happy with the results... I'll do some more skull studies this week, but I'll try to keep simple.
And here we have some 5 minutes sketches based on photo reference... I tried to practice opposing curves, but I failed... I'll try again tomorrow after reading about it again.
I'll post more girls next time! XD~
Yeah, your sketchbook does seem to have a heavy manga influence...
If I would offer one crit, it would be to be careful on the scale of the head to the rest of the torso - particularly in the last one of the girl, and the "bishonen manga" style pic of the two guys in your first post. When you draw figures, do you start at the head/face and work your way down completely? If so, I would suggest running up and down the length of the figure and adjust proportions as necessary before laying in the details...I find that when I draw figures, I almost invariably have to adjust the scale/location of the head if I start with it...it works better for me to find the vertical line of balance and place the shoulders and pelvis as the first horizantals...
Lots of luck!
I looked at yours, now you look at mine...sketchbook here

Thanks a lot for the advice, MadHatter! I generally begin drawing the head/face and the I go all the way down and I must agree that I need to pay more attention to these proportions. I'll do my best to improve this.
It's a copy from an Alberto Vargas' pin-up girl, I think.
I decided to study some works of the artists during the period of the 40's...
It was supposed to be some torso studies, hehehe...
Thanks a lot, Daniel!
Hey, N1va! Thanks a lot for the visit and the nice comment!
Here are some studies that I did yesterday.
All of them without reference.
I tried my best to make it look realistic...
Wow i really like your life studies and your values are top notch
Thanks a lot for the visit and the advice, man!
I'll try to do what you said.
And Motives! Thanks a lot for the visit and the nice comment! :]
Here you have some sketches I did lately...
Actually it is just part of my pen name, but you can call me Kim.
I'm going to work on the value works now, since i don't have nothing very important to do at the moment and I think it'll be a great practice. Thanks for suggesting it, man! ^^
Some finished stuff and a sketch I did this morning.
Thanks for the advice on the picture, man!
Are you talking about "cloudNINE"?
Hm, anyway, I did some studies on value... but things had been kinda crazy lately, so I didn't have too much time to do it. I hope I can do some more today...
I played a lil' bit with acrylics on Painter, hehe! XD~
It's a lot of fun, man! I gotta use this program more.
hehe great value studies i should do them too since i sux at shading. keep up the great work and i'll be comin to check often! hehe take care

Sorry for the long absence.
I'll try to keep posting new stuff here.
Check this out. Some drawing that I did while I was off. It isn't much, but I'm needing some motivation for personal works. I did more drawings, but i can't show them, since I'm under a contract... :/
If you still come here, hehe, thanks a lot for the comment! I think you should study works from your masters of choice to get better at shading... we can learn a lot by doing copies from works that we like! ^^
wow this is cool! I can see improvement
Thanks a lot! ^^
Today I'll only post a quick master copy that I did. I really like Simon Bisley's art and I decided to study it a little bit. I'll probably post more studies of his style. I know this copy is a very simple one - I just copied faces, but I'll draw more complex stuff later.
