I decided to start my own sketchbook here because I wanted to....well, lemme put it in this way:
I guess its pretty obvious that this is direct influence of André Franquin's Gaston Lagaffe, a brilliant comic book that I don't think was ever translated into English, nor published in the States.
Here's my first entry of drawings from various references - real life, photo and other works of art. All of them, except for the hand study, originated in the last month or two. Lady in the chair and the naked man are real life drawings from my last two art classes. The lady that bends done in chalk and charcoal I did off 360 degree photo. The hand study - hand in the lower left corner is a real life reference of my own paw, while the hand and the torso doodle I copied from a drawing made by LungBug who is something like the old master of today.
The portait is a master-copy attempt from:
Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres (1780-1867)
Copy after Ingres's 1804 Self-Portrait
Oil on canvas, c.1850-1860
I did it in acrylics over a charcoal sketch on a nice thick paper. I posted a large picture as well, so that brushstrokes can be observed. Sorta self-indulgent thing...
Well, thats it for now, I plan to do more stuff, more comics, more illos, more studies, and post some old stuff along the way. I'm pretty tired now, must go to bed.

Congrats on the new sb. The strip really grabbed my attention -- so, it apparently does the trick.
It's always great to see traditional media works here. My fav is the girl reaching down -- it's nice and dramatic and I like the colors.
Craig:: Thanks dude, your work is impressive.
Now, let's see for this forthnightly update we've got couple of croquis...es, quick live model sketches and some illos, car concepts, etc. - a collection of old and new stuff I did.
This is how I see Batmobile
This is The Spirit's car redesigned.

Here are two charcoals. The first one is kind of basic nude drawing:
Now, this one was done on a large piece of paper, its sorta life-size charcoal study:
And a sketch of...Demis Roussos.
PS: I wish I could finally get to page 2. There are probably 200 images on this one, and it takes too long for the page to load.
Thanks HumanNature, heres one painter sketch that I hope people will like.

Another thing I did, Legionaire - large size and small.
I mean, what if Roman Empire had prevailed and continued to exist until nowadays. I suppose it would simply be a menacing hegemonic superpower waging wars for resources and world domination. Luckily, we don't have that sort of thing today ))))
Miljenko, keep posting new work man! Why did you stop?
nice nice art, mostly comics, I like them
Pozdrav, ti si prenapredan sa moje perspektive
Posebno mi se sviđaju stripovi, imaš i odličan storytelling, npr kod onog indijanca što sreće konja
Malo sam pogledao info o tebi, web dizajn, stripovi, digitalna umjetnost, u biti puno toga te zanima kao i mene, samo što bih ja trebao više se koncentrirati na uže područje da budem prvo dobar barem u jednom , jer vrijeme brzo leti, heh
Pozdrav, slobodno posjetiš moj SB
