Hi, I'm new here.
Browsing through all your sketchbooks, was very inspiring.
It made me pick up my pencils again and I started scribbling.
I want to improve my drawing, so any comment is welcome !...
Hi Timon, great to see you started your sketchbook to! I really like your style, with strong linework as a base.
Looking forward to see more of your work here.
I really like your pieces. I love the variety in your linework and shading, it really gives the figures volume and weight. A good thing IMO. I especially like http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1169300219
I've done this quite awhile ago and would do it very different today... but why not post it, I thought ? so...
Flaskpost, Bartovan, Asatira, kakapoopie thanks for your comments !
I got a small Wacom tablet from a friend and tried it out last night. It certainly is fun ! I have a little photoshop experience but lack the knowledge to properly use it with the tablet. Just fooled around a bit.
Maybe someone knows where to find some tutorial or dvd about this kind of drawing ?

Welcome to CA!! I just wanted to say that I really like the first ones you posted. You have a nice style there, with the bold and thick lines used.
I will be looking forward to seeing some of your sketches.
Hi Timon, nice start with the tablet! For tutorials, also check out the CG Society forum,
Looking forward to see your progress with your digital (and other) work.

I like the pencils...
As for the hair on the last one, don´t overdo it with the shading. Now its quite blurry and without drawing some single strands, it looks almost plastified.
Maybe draw some more details on the hair, try some crisp shading and play with the values.
But thats just a suggestion, i´m certainly not a guru when it comes to colormanagement
Delmar : thanks for the advice.
Two more sketches. The second one was done very fast.
these charcoals or heaey pencil sketches are friggn fantastic
so much charecter and soul!
Strong sketchbook <> expressive linework
Kingshaj : Thanks for stopping by and leaving a few words !
Mentler : Thanks !

Hi Timon, great to see you doing some work with the tablet. You seem to get the hang of it. Nice mood in that last one. Keep going!
Welcome to ca, I hope you learn lots and improve greatly.
Thanks for the comments in my sb, those are always appreciated.
Wow, this sb is off to quite a strong start. For all your "lack of experience" with digital you seem to be doing well. You are achieving that "mood" that you were talking about. Keep practicing and you are going to be quite good. Your pencil work stands out to me. You seem very confident and your referenced work is quite nice. Keep that up, it will help you improve quickly.
As applies to everyone, keep working on anatomy, you can never practice that too much.
Make sure that you get out there and look at other artists work. Ask questions and look for inspiration.
really nice sketchbook here man, I love your blue pencil sketches. Your lines are very nice and expressive. The digitals are pretty tight too. You already show a great understanding of how digi painting works. Keep posting, and keep up the good work.
Q-Caddlewick : thanks for comment and the good advice !
Quick_Sketch : thanks for the kind words.
Wake101 : thanks for your comment.
I'll be checking your SB's once in a while, cuz I love to see how your drawingskills progress. Keep it up guys !
Asatira : thanks for stopping by here ! It's much appreciated

nice expressive lines you got going on. really like the gesture drawings. I feel like the horse on the last image has a human-ish eye. but I dunno much about horses. More!
Hi Timon, nice horses! Very expressive work. It's not easy to get the anatomy right and to draw some dynamic poses. Keep going!
