Finally i found a moment of selfconfidence to begin my sketchbook, at least scketching is the only thing i can do right now, besides my non-art-job.
So these are my goals for the future......i just turned 21 and iīm about to quit my job in July, iīll move to another city an do nothing but draw. At least as long as iīve got money to live. YEEHAA.
One thing: This Forum has been the biggest reason for improving myself , so thanks to each and everyone of you.

Welcome to the boards man. Ive seen your replies in other sketchbooks. But couldnt find yours. Now I know why. Very expressive style you have. Characters have a cool look to them. Would love to see some finished character sketches. Great work so far, keep up the good work.
The sketchiness of your pictures makes them look like they are in motion, which is cool.
Enviser: Thanks, you´re right. i intend to do some full character concepts
ur pants: Thanks man, i alwys try to keep some motion or expression in my
Here are two little bit colored sketches from this week, i´d love to hear some crits about the coloring.....

Nice work, your lines look good, reminds me of another member on the boards called Sinix.
Work on the anatomy and you'll develope fast.
Really dug this one, shows some good potential! Its nice and clean, and easy to read.
Your last post where you inverted that image doesnt work. Really dig your experimentation, but you have to manage line quality to an extent. Keep it up nonetheless mate.
Thanks man for the advice, i really appreciate that.
So, as i got inspired today looking over some speedpaints of well gifted artists, i couldn`t help and tried it out. So what I´m aiming for is if someone of you gifted painters could give me some advice on the colorscheme i used in this picture. I really suck when it comes to coloring, so maybe someone could give me some hints so i´m able to learn from picture to picture......
Edit: I almost forgot......it´s kind of worm with a red lighten head, so I indicated roughly the reflection from the buildings. When i have time I will refine it a little more tomorrw
nice skills in portraing emotions thru face expressions.
Good luck in the city. Yes, draw lots, but don't forget to eat. Your use of heavy black lines works well, but make sure you experiment with lots of different techniques and styles, that will also help with motivation when you're feeling uncreative.
Oh you have some really nice stuff! I love the energy you seem to have in your lines and your expressive creativity! You've got the really sketchy sketchbook I've always tried, but Im too damned stuck in my line art ;p
"I'm a damsel, I'm in distress, I can handle this! Have a nice day."
...Some sort of sketchbook...
nutter: I totally agree with you , but because of my work, i´ve got just half an hour or something a day to draw. And im not really able to concentrate on totally new things, so actually i grab my wacom and just draw whatever comes out. But as i said in a few month i´ll movin and then i have time to introduce myself to many different styles. I wanna deffenetly join an art course, doing some traditional painting with oils or something. To improve my sense for colors.
Daray: Thanks for the compliment. In fact the best compliment for me right now

Thanks Blaz......I hate myself for not posting more, but i had not much time these days. (That sucks !!!!) ...
...Anyway at least i got some quickies
The first one is maybe my first referenced picture ever, i really want to emphasize more on this .
..i know, the head in the second one is crap , but it was more a coloring try for me. I can´t figure out the right value thing, my colored pictures look always so flat . This time i tried to give the second one more contrast, so at the end i worked with multiply layers, and it turned out at least a little bit better.......but i dunno if that´s the right way to go.
...crits most welcome

lovin the figure work Delmar. The only crit I have so far is to spend more time with your sketches and to use more confident lines, you know less scratchy. Keep it up.
Thanks Envisor for stoppin by again....and your right, iīll try to get my lines cleaner..thx for the advice.
This should be my first COW entry- for the creature of the weak " gluemaker "...
....but i wasnīt able to finish in time, well i started yesterday. However, iīm quite satisfied how it turend out so far, now it comes to the part of giving the scene more value, where iīm totally helpless....but i try my best to finish it....
Hey, thanks for the comment on my sb I'm really digging the one drawing in here of the woman with the musical bars/striped ribbons(?) coming out of her head... the one that's b&w with orange... way cool. Keep it on!!
thanks for stopping by my sketchbook.
You've got a really energetic/ expressive feel to your work, which is a good thing to have. I really dig the girl with the afro, reminds me of a james bond movie intro.
All the best and keep up the work.
mr delmar i think you have some really nice stuff going on man, some very cool stuff i must say! i really like your design sense and the way you use the digital medium, do you do much pencil stuff? just out of interest offcourse...
cool like i say man i definately wanna see more. i think you for sure have a place in the art/design world.
keep it up!!!
Hey, Delmar, nice work
A few possible things you could improve ( just in my opinion):
1. Use less saturated colours, in real life the skin is not pure orange/red, the grass not pure green, etc. ( Variation is important, look at reference or real life)
2.The shadows should not be pure black, as said above use some reference photos.
3.The surface of different things has different qualities, try to recreate them through texture, colour, saturation, variation and ...
The evil troll
P.S. the last pic in post Nr. 19 is really cool, just add some colour ...
@don key: Man!!thanks for stoppin by, and for the kind words which doubled my motivation immediately.....Well i hadn´t done pencils for quite a time, i got totally sucked in by the digital media......but looking at some threads (yours included) i really get my motivation back to do some nice rendered pencils.!! (actually i should find out how to do nice pencil renderings in the first place... )
Thanks for the advice man, it´s highly appreciated!!! I´m just starting to sort things out in the world of colors, and so i´m glad for every suggestion about my paintings.
...Had not much time today so i´ve got just this comic quicky to show,well i tried to put some nice perspective in this one and i tried to keep the lines cleaner......
i like this one:
but the feet seem to be off. thanks for stopping by my sketchbook.
i love the second picture in post 8, your work has very nice colors.
thanks much for the kind words on my sb. i love all the character drawings you've done.
