    Aztc: I guess one can only steel themselves in preparation of seeing what you do when you get 'revved' up. I think my heart and brain are going to be sitting in a shitty pool in my pants.
    Oddly, I can't wait to see what you come up with.
    My best to you!

    I guess that that last post was today wasn't it. Good I wont have to bug you today. Keep up the posting. Every day.

    I'm liking the enviro-thumbs. You should more like that. There is something about doing completely different subject matter that makes you open your eyes and actually see. Do you know what I'm talking about?

    All of your people drawings are great. The one fourth from the bottom stands out though. You nailed the light in that one. The mood comes across very well.

    Hey! I haven't seen any sp's yet. Why don't you do one? Or do you not want your face on the internet because your drawing is the same as posting a photo. I could understand that. I avoid posting photos of myself. I don't worry about sp's though because I'm not good enough for anyone to recognise me from my art.

    As always, I love your lines... just gorgeous, especially the drapery on the woman's dress up there.

    One nitpick crit - I think the drawing of your sister in law might be a little chin-heavy. You generally get proportions spot on, though, so maybe she just has a large chin?

    Beautiful work.

    By the way, I just have to comment on these two images.

    I was looking at how long the page was and thought "Damn, that's a lot of scrolling, I'm just gonna shoot straight to the bottom here and check out her latest works" and for about 1/30th of a second those two images flashed by my screen and I instantly was able to recognize them as male portraits. Damned good portraits at that, so I doubled back for a look-see.

    When an image takes only a mere fraction of a second to be read and understood, that's when you know it's good!

    -My work can be found at my local directory thread.

    I swear to you all, I'm not slacking, Just that............Dangnm! I'm #$%^*ing slow! When I start serious studies, can't go fast. Trying to absorb every little bit. Also want to accumulate drawngs to post and keep the pages full of my better efforts and of some interest. Once a week is what it's developing as.
    Now have 3 paper sketchbooks going: An environment design, a creature/character design, and a master copy study book. I will work in each one as the mood or inspiration strikes me in a particular day. But, they're all being hit up as I work out all the issues in my skill sets.

    This is what I'm doing:
    Copies of artists I like to feed the design part of my brain. To inspire, to see and internalize the breakup of shapes, values as these artists saw them.
    The ones in focus for now: Dana Gibson, Dean Cornwell, Alphonse Mucha, and Frank Frazetta for line design sense.

    Copying Gibson for some pretty good reasons.
    1st of all, his design of hair is outstanding. In the solid stroke of a pen, you can clearly see his design of masses as well as his aesthetic choices in stroke direction.
    2nd: To get faciltiy of the pencil stroke, more fluidity in each sweep, co-or-din-a tion of the hand! CONTROL!
    3rd reason: Gibson knew how to draw people. He drew beautiful women, handsome men and some of the most amazing characters and attiude with minimal indication.
    And there is a 4th reason,....in next post.

    1st 3 are copies of Gibson's pen and ink. I used a mechanical pencil.
    Was inspired with some amazing creature designs here in CAorg and tried my hand. Creatures are a bit flat as I work out a rendering of forms from the mind. Kinda lacking in imagination and free flow ideas. But, hoping with time it gets better.

    Hey Aztec, I'll drop in later with a more decent post - a have a ton of work to do - just wanted to say updates are stunning. In particular the design of each drawing and the balance of straight and curved lines - very effective, stunning pieces!

    Later!

    AmazingActionApe Hey glad you decided to stop in. The cats were not as successful in design as those of other artists with great graphic sense, but I had fun drawing them. Yeah. Time to take care of my own stuff.
    Hey Brendan Great ideas for design. Losing control is so hard to do for a long-time clean-up artist.
    But I find that's exactly what it's going to take to push the creative limits I have right now. My old effects animation supervisor, Michel Gag˝e, used to say "animating effects requires organized chaos". Makes sense in all aspects of art. Hope you like the update. Look forward to your comments. Thanks for the nice words on my oils. Checked out Manu, yep, nice feel for linework. 'Kay, now who is nicolas?
    bhanu BRING IT! Let's see where that fire takes you. I'm curious to see where I end up. The more people running wih the same goal and energy keeps us all charged up.
    Thanks for checking up and your support.
    Helzon Haha, NOOoo! Don't do it.
    I'va lot to learn from you. Thanks so much for your advice. Will incorporate all of it in my next Painter attempt..............soon.
    Hi Q Am always glad to see your comments here. Your encouraging words have been sustaining and keeps me plugging away. Enviros do use a different set of brain cells. I find that I enjoy thumbnails. Quick and easy way to get ideas out and really use graphic shapes, silhouettes, negative space to a high degree. Quite therapeutic.
    SP? Hmmm,.......Someday, perhaps. But, don't sell yourself short. Have gotten a pretty good gist of what you look like from your SP's back in your book.
    Still waiting.............bug-eyed cat is going to sleep...........

    shidoken Hi and thanks for your supportive comments. Am liking what you do when you're bored. I know there are going to be some great things happenig as you fill up your SB.
    Hey Tigermilk Thank you. Glad you could use some of that advice. It's something I've just worked through, and still solidifying myself.
    Hi Gryphon Thank you for dropping in once again. Yeah, love my sis-in-law to pieces, but she is a bit round. I probably didn't define her chin very well, as flesh rather than bone mass. Next time, I'll watch for that.
    Anid Maro Hi. Thanks for your visit. A quick read is important in concept so thanks for mentioning that. That's cool to know.
    Hi fooxoo Thank you. I appreciate your visit and kind words. Model had a blow-out wig. It was enjoyable to describe with charcoal.
    miljenko Thank you. Keep on drawing and creating.
    Don-key Your work is one I keep in mind as I try to get a feel for depicitng invented figures. The flow and energy in your drawings is what I am working to incorporate in my critters. Will definitely be checking your SB for updates.
    Fureatenshi Hey thanks for dropping in. Yes, much patience and alot of commitment. Do it! Work on them figures!

    I only wish i could give you:


    Absolutely loving the work on the ladies, and the aquatic(?) creatures have a wonderful flow and gracefulness to them. The last one is a bit contrived but is interesting nonetheless.
    Can't wait to see more!

    Nicolas? Nicolas..

    What got me about his work is that stuff most artists would do digitally he does traditionally - tons of acrylic sketches and doodles, full of energy. He may not match up to the draughtsmanship of other artists, but the cheer energy with which he attack a traditional medium is pretty inspiring.

    His icon is next to Malin's in the banner at the top of the page. Treat yourself and browse through those artists!

    about the updates - mind blowing! The studies are amazing - like I said the balance between straight and curved lines is slapping me in the face, and the linear shading style you've employed is looking awesome. A lot of personality has also made its way into the faces, always good to see people and not just faces.

    The creature designs look great too, love the shapes in all of them. If I had to be nitpicky I'd say the last on lacks some form (suppose it's inherent from the original), but I think it would make for and awesome animated creature - like in a disney movie. Dig the other three even more - real good job on those!

    organised chaos - exactly! Saw a small tut, can't remember by whom unfortunately, but he developed about 8-12 faces out of scribbles. Just scratching a bit, making squiggles, and then trying to see face in that. He said the object was to do something he normally wouldn't do. Think that's a fastest way to break the mould, have a go! lol

    But overall, no crits. Your work is absolutely stellar as usual. Sorry for not being able to offer too much advice, your just to far ahead of me lol.
    ciao!

    Oh yeah!

    These simple, line, master, copies [too many commas?] I love 'em! I have always wanted to be good at simle lineword without much rendering. My sketchbook attests to that, I hardly ever tried to render something. I want to be your apprentice too!!! It's great seeing you do this lineart. Don't get me wrong rendering is the peak of art. IMO. To be able to realisticly render is the top of the top, but there is nothing like some simple line drawings to show off an artists talent. They have a way of stripping away all the fancy embelishments and showing exactly how well the artist knows his subject. How well he can communicate an idea in the simplist form possible.

    Where was I? Oh, yeah!

    In a nutshell, very nice on the linework pieces. The creature designs are cool. They don't look particualarly flat, and even if they were, they are designs right? Once you figure out how they look then you can worry about making them look 3d.

    The dog is coming. Just slower than I'd at first imagined. I want to get that pooch right, Note the Dog Studies. He'll just get your blender head cat while he's snoozing.

    You know how some things just don't click until the right moment when someone says/does something just the right way?

    Looking at the first page (for the third time now) I just had a moment.

    the shading in the latest drawings reminds me of harold speed, i love the way you work the hair in the first one, i don't like the face quit much but the shading is working really well.
    I would like to see some character work from you and more creatures too.
    Keep up the hard work, always a pleasure to stop by.
