Thanks for commenting! I like Miyazaki movies but the visuals of his movies aren't really something I am in to I think...I don't own any of the art books for the movies he did. Just curious, what is it that reminded you about Miyazaki?Originally Posted by GOBLINSHARK

Laine! Ive been a long time viewer of your site and I love your stuff. Do you have any plans to bring your site back up at all?
Yeah I'll bring my site back one day, but it's hard to get motivation to code it.
typing things here because there is a character requirement
lot of good things here ~~
I like the japan style .really nice stuff
can't wait to see more !!
the green hair elf drawing is really good .
good day everyone ! enjoy your life
sean's sketch book
Wow, so beautiful... How long did it take you to work on this peice. :3
I dont have any critiques but excellent work. I hope to see more from you
THat last one is really super her left eye could use some ofthe same Tlc as the right got, but very good work.
I like your anime inspired work as well The cowboy girl is my favorite.
The elf girl look more like a fashion drawing than anything else.
Also in your sunset it would have looked and felt more natural for there to be more yellow tones in the sky and clouds.
Transition from Art Critic to Artiste - Diligence, that's all I need.
WhiteRose> I'm not sure how long it took; I worked on it on and off; an earlier version was done a few months earlier and I picked it up again recently. I'd say maybe 20 hours? Time is not really important though, imho, unless you're measuring your own speed for commercial production.
kischi> thank you!
Nicoraven> what's TLC?
watercolor is fun
loss, sentimentalism, bittersweet, looking back on changes
crits welcome, i suk at this style
your sketchbook is so sweeeeet , dunno why but it hit my rotten emo nerv.
really like the last updates. i wonder where you dissapeared. have you felt the conceptart doesn´t like anime style that much atmosphere the first time ?
don´t let this discourage you , ( if you have felt it)
oh yeah this one reminded me of myasaki somehow, very sweet . haha can´t believe she´s made of urine
masaki likes to draw old hags and cats , i think it´s because of that( not to forget he loves pigs the most)
hope you´re doing fine , stay well and keep postin!!!
aviable for fulltime and freelance
Great mixture of different styles here.
Love that cowgirl in red.
That last painting is nice. If I had to critique it, I would say that the background could do with more gradient in tone, from top to down or vice versa. The figure is standing too straight and stiff. Maybe offset her feet a little.
nice style, the last image is very nice.i like the colurs and the rythm of the buterflys.the figure torso has a smooth curve but the legs are a little straight like hunterkiller said.
this is my fav http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1174895500 remainds me a bit the style of guido crepax(italian comic drawer) anyway keep the good work
Dimagyan, HunterKiller, GoblinShark (rotten emo core haha thats funny coz I am rotten emo too) thank you for your comments! I am glad people find this sketchbook entertaining, it is encouraging and I will continue to maintain it Thank you for the critiques too, they help!
This is a study of bougie's Gabrielle de cot. I can't tell if her eye is crooked , been looking at it for too long. What do you think?

omg! spectecular. just fantastic. Keep the anatonomy studies, hands etc up man! U get great
Laine! I remember you from a long time ago. Welcome to CA.
Lovely sketch book, you've come a long way since I've last seen your work.
animu catgirl lahlz
Like the others, I like your work, especially the colouring style. (Reminds me of http://itchstudios.com/psg/art_tut.htm )
To break the line of compliments, I gotta say that the face in the coloured picture of this post: http://conceptart.org/forums/showpos...4&postcount=31 bothers me. It seems as if the part around the left eye should go in a bit, to show she has an eye socket and cheek bone. Also, I'm not sure if it's just me, but the mouth seems to be drawn as if her head is facing directly towards us, when really it's at a slight angle. I'd either move it slightly to the right, or erase a bit of the mouth to the left of the tongue, so the tongue looks less centred.
Another thing is that she seems to have lost her breast since the sketch. o.O
Wow, a lot of stuff in your sketch book outshines what you posted in Finished. Good Stuff! I like the little water color guys.
Wow I haven't updated in a while! Here are some old things I painted last year:
It's not inherently bad or wrong. It's a stylistic choice, and my advice to keep away from it is just an opinion on what I don't care to see very much. I see it from time to time in various anime works and instead of making the joints look delicate or warm, it tends to call too much attention to the area (red is an attention grabber, couple this with a highlight too..) and in my opinion it makes the area look sore, or bruised, which is the opposite effect I think someone might be wanting to achieve. It also doesn't describe anything about the joint, show us where it bends, or depict any superficial anatomy landmarks. I think it tends to make the area look much more spherical as well. It's probably not the worst technique, but I wouldn't go overboard on it, you'd probably want to keep that one in moderation. Again that's just my opinion on the matter, not my "say-so".
I had never thought that people would find the blush annoying Yeah, I realize logically it will look sore or bruised or show anatomy; but emotionally I can't resist the red knees and shoulders! I just want to add them!! everywhere!! *o* BLUSH FETISH!! OoO;;

SUCH DELICIOUS ANIMU. Not to mention everything else~ neato artwork in here, keep it up!
I like your style, very versatile. Your studies are great too!
Its interesting to see someone that can do great anime and can also do realism as well.
Keep up the great work!
