    Nice stuff as always, glad you managed to get back into cracking the drawings out. I really like this one: http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i2...tt/sb5_pg8.jpg
    really does feel like that when creating!

    Hey peeps! Thanks for the replys. So I've been drawing lately but I really don't feel like scanning this stuff in. I'm in one of my 'working through it' phases. I hope I can come out of it soon. I wish I wasn't so damn streaky.

    Thanks for the love guys and gals! I'm currently taking a tiny bit of a break and rethinking my approach to my work. I was on a roll when I first started doing digital pieces and wasn't thinking or worrying too much about the content of my work... just if I liked the way it looked. I find lately I'm so worried about what I'm trying to say that it's been a bit of a struggle lately. I think I was doing some of my best work when I felt confident and just had fun with it. There's always a struggle that goes on in my head about traditional vs digital and I've had a problem with using the computer as a tool but when I look at my work overall the digital pieces are usually the strongest.
    I'll be back very soon with hopefully a whole new energy for my work.

    28chelseaslater : maybe all I need is a new plushy?! haha

    I have the same kind of issue, except my traditional is usually stronger than my digital... and my sketches have typically been stronger than my finished work overall. It's weird how things work.

    Good luck.

    Than you should do traditional, right? hehe, it's hard to figure out sometimes. Like I would rather do awesome finished traditional pieces but I find I loose my voice when I go completely traditional. I have a lot more of my own look when I go digital. I need to just get over it and do shit on the computer... I guess.

    Hey whats up sketch, I've been going through a similar art slump, I've been thinking way too much about what I am trying to communicate with my art work, but I've been also thinking that I don't really have the "skills" that I need to be able to draw and paint from exactly some of the things that I imagine, And what I think happens is I try and imagine too much what I want to draw and paint that I build an expectation about what I want for a finished product and right there is a plan for disaster,
    I think the experience itself of working on a drawing or painting is really what it's all about and not the finished product.

    Try doing some life drawing stuff, that always usually pulls me out of a slump or at least gets me to realize that I can only control what I draw to a certain degree.
    Than you should do traditional, right? hehe, it's hard to figure out sometimes. Like I would rather do awesome finished traditional pieces but I find I loose my voice when I go completely traditional. I have a lot more of my own look when I go digital. I need to just get over it and do shit on the computer... I guess.
    Its crazy stuff , art, I personally think that everything is relative, and everyone has their own perspective and sees things differently, you say you find you loose your voice? But everyone might not hear that voice when they look at your work, they might see or hear a different meaning or message, it might mean something completely different to somebody depending on the time that they see it, and what they are thinking or doing at that time, I think you should just do what ever feels right at the time.

    I think that a break sometimes is good and keeps things refreshed.

    Take care man,

    by the way are you going to that workshop in Seattle?

    Have you heard of the movie Tekkonkinkreet? It's a CGI-cell hybrid...at its finest...for some reason I thought of it when you said that you may be leaning away from your digi-mixed work. If you get a chance download it or something cause I think you'd get a kick out of it. lats

    Well said Mr-Joe. I fully agree. That's what I'm doing... taking a short break and not stressing about it. BUT I'm constantly looking at art and thinking about it and what I want to do when I get busy again. Some may call it being lazy but I like to think of it as Refocusing.
    I used to do a lot of life drawing and I really miss it. Problem for me is finding one in Victoria and then also one on the weekend. There was one last year at one of the schools but I haven't found out if it is running again this year. Need to get on that shit meng!
    I probably won't be able to make it to the conference just because of work. Gots to make that money and pay me some rent. Also to buy way too much beer.

    Ped - thanks man! I'll try and track it down to take a look. I really haven't enjoyed an anime in a long time. Used to dig a lot of it but that shit really starts to repeat itself. There was some Korean one that I watched a while back that was the shit... can't remember the name. It was about this city that runs on shit and they pay you for your shit with these popsicles that are drugs to get you hooked and shit more. It was messed but had some of the best action scenes I've ever seen.

    You don't have to go to a life drawing class to draw from life, I've only been to 2 life drawing classes, I'd like to go to more, but its hard to make it to the times they are scheduled, So what I do is just draw the people I work with when they aren't moving very much, You can even draw still objects, or landscapes.

    haha... you would think! I guess my problem is I like to try and do everything... I don't know if that makes me an over-achiever, or indecisive, or crazy or what. I flip flop between the two mediums when I get burnt out, but I'm just want to get things to look polished no matter the medium. It can be tough. *sigh*

    I think I get more replies when I'm not posting new work, haha. I have been drawing a lot in the past couple days but all in very light pencil and my scanner won't pick it up. So I'll get to inking very soon and start posting again by sometime next week. I'm really not worthy of all your posts, lately. Thanks though!

    Mr-Joe - Yah, you're right but I get the most out of actual 'naked human' life drawing. That's where I begin to pick up a lot of confidence and my work evolves faster.

    BC - yah, I agree. I wish I could just do traditional perfectly though, hehe. I am starting to find my own voice with traditional methods and I'm hoping to keep on developing.

    FactorZero - no prob and thanks for stopping by mine!

    highsublime - stoked you like my shit! thanks for checking it out... and normally I update with new work a lot more than the past couple weeks.

    j0shu4 - I use a lot of different types of pens, brushes etc. I used to use just microns but lately I've been prefering ink and brush. Thanks for taking a look meng!

    Blaz - thanks! And I'll have some updates soon. Have been taking a bit of an art for the internet break.

    well, art is a continual learning process, so you'll always continue to develop as long as you study and experiment with mediums. As far as a style, I think you've had your voice since the beginning of this sb... and that's something that I feel I'm still searching for, unfortunately. It's a shame good things rarely come quickly.

    Can't wait to see the new stuff.

    Hello again! haha... well not as big of an update as I'd like but I'm really happy with these pieces. Still really enjoying the brush and ink thing and I am going to keep on exploring what I can do with it. Thanks for all the support and I wish I could pump out a lot more but my updates are probably going to be a bit slow for awhile until some of my work stuff gets sorted out. I'm going to try and post at least once a week though.

    Work the Angle - Burning through pages

    these next two are really tiny and it was super hard to use a brush to ink them because I had too much coffee... enuff excuses I know

    An update! I'm so excited!
    I like the ink & brush style too, though I wish youd put some colored inks in it
    Man, that first dude would look so rad with like... some red or blue ink behind him. I like that guy.

    bhanu - Thanks bro. Your style would really be good with brush and ink too! I'm just using normal India Ink and three different styles and sizes of brushes. Then to do the washes you just mix in some water. And good paper if you plan on getting pretty wet with it.

    chelsea - I've been thinking about trying out some coloured inks but I am just trying to get really confident with normal ink. Then start mixing them in. I'm sure you'll see them really soon.

    So just as I get going again, my computer starts crapping out on me! It's been turning itself off and then sometimes it won't even turn back on. I'm happy that I got on this time as I was able to back up all my art. Hate computers sometimes! I'm going to try and use it for awhile longer or take it in and see if they can fix it.
