    update

    Sketched some more today - happy with some, not too happy with others.
    Some posemaniacs, some screencaps from LotR (the 2Towers), a woman and some environment scribbles.

    Busy with several paintings also, I'll put them up as soon as they are done! Back to the drawing board I say!

    update

    Took pictures of a couple of older sketches (rouhly 1/2 a year old) and grouped them together, so more can fit on a page! I'm practicing human anatomy at the moment, while also working on several paintings that I should really finish quite soon.

    For now, some sketches of creatures and stuff, work on a painting of LotR that I made about a year ago and dug up yesterday to finish it up. And practice painting metal and painting in general. And some charcoal sketch of Robbie.
    Anyway, thanks for taking a look!
    .. back to the drawing board it is!

    update

    Some more scribbles from today..

    posemaniacs (30sec this time) - tried a different approach 2nd time around, with looser lines; I kind of like that one better.
    some beauty from metart/femjoy I think, a sketch of an apache (lol) - I never actually draw machines so this one sucks but also it's good practice !
    ...and a weird horror kind of dude (finally, conceptart!) - I just felt like drawing that.
    Thanks for watching, you lurkers keep me motivated

    PS: my sketches are not as sharp as I'd like them to show up on the site. . . my scanner broke down a while ago.
    I now have one o'those smart phones with a camera, I thought it'd make decent pictures, but I dunno.
    They seem to lose some punch, or sharpness. Ah well, that's the drawback of working analog I guess..

    cool stuff here, if I had to say one thing it would be to invest in some darker pencils and put that extra layer of value in there. Everything goes to that middle grey, when you're drawing from your reference really try to see how dark a shadow gets and try to match it.
    Also it looks like you might be using your finger to smudge in value, don't do that Learn to blend with your pencil.

    update

    @ carakhan: thanks for your advice, I see what you mean.
    Yeah, I do occasionally smudge with my finger, especially in the last couple of days of sketches; I'll stop it - for you.
    Seriously, you're right, I've never really done hatching - don't know why.
    But I do want to improve all of my drawing skills, so there we go!
    Thanks again!

    some posemaniacs, hatching studies (characterdesigns is awesome ! - stole that idea from your sb too) trying some hatching on the alien dude and an update on the demon (from several posts back)
    more stuff later tonight! gotta get this thing into full gear! RAWR!

    Really nice! Yea character designs is great especially if you want to learn value, nice deep shadows. Now the next time you do the studies start scrutinizing every little change in value. I recognize the one with the man and the woman bending down, and his muscles change form much more than in your pic Its a great start and if I didn't know the pic I think it would look great, but you'll learn so much more if you spend twice the time on your drawing to really see all the detail.

    Love your gestures, and the painting is coming along nicely! Watch your knight doesn't get too blue, unless that's your intent then go for it It would actually be cool to see a classic knight get paint splattered on him as he's headed to battle!

    update

    @ carakhan - thanks again for your kind critique and you're right, I was a little impatient about the hatching thing and kind of rushed it. But I will certainly try harder next time. It makes for good practice I think.

    About the demon/knight piece, I kind of screwed it all up from the start, by not thinking it through and just going with whatever I felt like at the time. So the light and shadows are virtually absent (and the shadow I did put behind the knight is the wrong side, compared to the shadow on the wall LOL)
    I kind of like the colours though, so I might fiddle and tweak it a little more. I actually like the idea of the knight being painted, although that was not the idea; just playing around with colours really.

    update on two paintings; of a tiger and a deer. Both nearly there.
    The tiger was already @ an expo, unfinished and all. Really need to finish it.

    update!

    Finally, another update!

    It's been a while, and I haven't done as much as I would like, but there it is. I really would like to get into the illustration business, working for fantasy games, wizards, magic, whatnot. I've got a long way to go still.
    I should probably build a portfolio with finished stuff, but I'm not too confident of my skills yet. So now I'm mostly sketching and doing studies.

    These sketches are all from the past week.
    Mostly fantasy critters, sketches, from the heart. No reffed stuff.
    Butterfly painting is reffed, some WIPs. Lizard and wolf sketches also reffed.
    (studies)
    Other paintings are on their way.

    Any advice, comments, crits are welcome.
    Thanks for watching.

    update

    Small update; stuff from yesterday.

    I do find it hard to keep production levels high - usually, I disappoint my own goals. Of course, I could set lesser goals so I can actually achieve them, but then I feel I'm not pushing myself hard enough.
    Do any of you run into similar problems? If so, has anyone found a solution?
    Not that your solution will work for me, but I find that it always helps to gain multiple perspectives on an issue.
    Anyway, on to the scribbles.

    A dragon (*yeah*), some creatures for D&D prolly, and an old lizardman.
    Comments and crits welcome. Thanks for watching.

    update

    Hey guys, it's a bit slow lately, but I have been sketching creatures.
    So here they are - I know anatomy is somewhat wonky here and there, still trying to work on that. I hope to update more often, too.
    Anyway, thanks for watching. And feel free to comment

    update

    Been sketching creatures from a fantasy roleplaying game (dungeons & dragons) for practice. Also I've been practicing from Hogarth, I figured maybe put that up later. Or not.
    I should really get back to painting, but sketching with a pencil is fun!

    Damn, that's a lot of work you're posting... Now I feel like a lazy bum...
    Thanks for the kick in the butt! Also, cool drawings as well! I especially love your creature and animal work!
    And the paintings are great as well! I always admire people who can paint traditionally. So, you have my admiration, good sir!

    When in doubt, run and shout.
