Ooh, sorry, it's not your fault about my comments! I had some internet hickups couple days ago and I guess my comment just didn't come through when hitting reply, although I thought otherwise. I didn't mean to come off like a prick and scolding you for not replying to my comment, sorry if you thought otherwise, my friend Thanks for the thorough answer up there, it was interesting to see where you get your influences and inspiration!
Your latest update sure meets expectations! That lady in red is jaw-dropping gorgeous. Lighting is really becoming your forté, it seems. It's been so dynamic and realistic lately, I must say you've improved heaps there
Pencils are a beauty. Nice outfits! Good seeing you expanding out of human anatomy and tackling animals, that should be a challenge, I hope to see more of it. Your anatomy is becoming really masterful. I see the occasional anatomical hiccup, but it's generally not the rule at all. E.g., the woman in the fancy dress on the left in your moleskine doesn't seem entirely right proportional, she's a bit short in the middle section, ain't she? Love the dress design, though!
ohnojenny: Meh...yeah..I've been having some weird and lame proportion problems lately...I think I need to revisit my studies...I'll try to keep the characters coming! Thanks!
lilnebo: Aww, kindness that surpasses all things! thanks! I think I may need it! D:
radio24: Cool! I'm glad you like my work, thank you!!
AsaB:You're absolutely welcome! Good questions deserve thorough answers...I've considered posting some of my old old anime work...maybe redoing one of the designs or something...just for fun. That seems more like something I'd put up on DA though. :3
I'm still working...so much to learn here....
Yeah...I was noticing she was off too...my only defense is that I was drawing that in a very dark space. :3 But rather than make excuses, I should really just suck it up and draw more. Thank you for stopping by again!
a la bapsi: Whee, thanks! pfsh. Pencils are fun, just keep at it. Thanks again.
yinteck: That's really cool to hear! Thanks for the stopping by the ol' thread, friend.
I forgot to post yesterday...I know I know...hey man, what's up with all this pencilly crap? Well...I was working on another self portrait last night...and I saved a crop of it, because I wasn't going to finish, but wanted to show that I was making some kind of progress...and now I can't find the damn thing. maybe I really didn't save it. Meh.
Wow...the scans are crappy quality...I'll get on that... Attachment 432863Attachment 432864
Haha about that saving thing, I always save my stuff as "Untitled-1" so I always know where I put it, and if I decide to keep it I rename it, and if not I'll overwrite it the next time Nothing's ever lost this way, and you don't have filenames like "dghjehsrbnvjsd.psd" lol.
Great work here man, I've added you on g-talk but haven't seen you on. I'm anxious to see what you've got going for round 2 in the LTS, you definitely have got me working harder on my next piece . Keep on with the updates man!
a la bapsi: Argh. Such is life, I suppose.
Hahahaha! I've done stuff like that before. The biggest disappointment...realizing that you only dreamed that you finished a masterpiece...
algenpfleger:Well it was weird! I remember resizing and cropping and everything...and I thought saving...but now I don't know...
ethan karnopp: Same for me, man! I'm going through ideas left and right...I've just got to settle on one...yargh! I'm looking forward to it!
All i have for right now are some LTS concept thumbs...page two definitely has the better stuff... Attachment 433978 Attachment 434001
Those last two pages are amazing! Seeing you doing environmental thumbs (or, yeah, storyboards?) is great fun, those are all very energetic, I can't wait to see how the finalized piece will turn out like
As usual, I love your pencils. They're not crap, stop saying that, they're incredibly inspiring, you've got beautiful line quality!
Redesigning old anime stuff? I say bring it on Not only would it be fun to see how you've improved since then in general, but also seeing your new vision design wise. Don't hesitate to put everything in here, I'd love to see it!
