    The last few posts are just great! You put out so many sketches, it's ridiculous! My faves are Rollerskates, Thimbleful, self-portrait as a superheroine and Blue Ox. Keep up the good work!

    Wow, been far too long since I stopped by your sketchbook! Your work has come a long way.. what I love about your pieces is that they're full of character! Browsing these last few pages just made my day Keep it up!

    Insanity is the key!
    Also, studies are a key. And passion is a key. Also, so are inspiration, motivation and dedication. Talent can be a key. Insomnia can also be a key, depression is a sad rusty little key. Damn, artists need one hell of a keyring.

    Love this update.. specially the Owl and the White Deer piece.. Have you read the Geralt of Rivia saga? (I don't know if it's not called the Witcher's saga) by Andrej Sapkowski... the deer piece reminded me the ambience of this novels a lot

    Like those last two, good composition going on there. Last updates were pretty cool too, well they're always kinda cool. That falkind thing reminds of the gummibear for some reason, or at least some kind of 80's cartoon. Coincidence?

    walnut: intentional similarity, no... coincidence? "Gummi Beeaaaars! Bouncing here and there and everywhere/ High adventure that's beyond compare/ They are the Gummi Bears!" I may've seen an episode or two...


    1) "Le Petit Chat Noir"
    2) Mischievous monkey...
    3) Nibru. 'Nuff said.
    4) Anyone watch David the Gnome? And/or SouthPark?
    5) "Arm of the Mighty"

    Le petit chat noir had me laughing pretty hard, it's adorable I like the lighthearted mood you have with your work, really fun to look thru your book.

    that being said, it seems that overall you're not paying much attention to lighting, or how light interacts with form in your personal work. You do a really excellent job in your observed studies, but I would like to see you try to bring that knowledge into your personal work. It'll really take you up a few levels.

    Texahol: thx so much for checkin' out my SB Glad you liked my "Chat Noir" -- other folks I'd shown didn't really "get it", which was a bummer. You're right, btw; I've been quite lazy with lighting. It's an ingredient that's been inadequate (if not missing) for too long. Thx for reminding me!


    Pieces and bits for this evening:

    1) "Fox"
    2) "Sheep"
    3) "Strawberry Ice Cream"
    4) "Mermaid Lagoon"

    Wow, sweet updates.. Loved le Petit Chat Noir... Damn, i really like that original poster

    Also the David and the little Swift on the last one (I watched it fully.. damn, it's spanish, we got to watch it whether we wanted or not )

    The mermaid lagoon looks funny.. are you going to colour it?

    Aww, I find that "Strawberry Ice Cream" one just too cute for words Nice updates, the Bassetts are lovely! And @ your Nibru xD

    Also, studies are a key. And passion is a key. Also, so are inspiration, motivation and dedication. Talent can be a key. Insomnia can also be a key, depression is a sad rusty little key. Damn, artists need one hell of a keyring.

    After all the stuff I've done lately, I can really really appreciate the neat, precise linework you have in your recent stuff amon, and adding the value to the skintones in the audrey hepburn image is really interesting, although the face looks a tic out of line, with the eyes just a bit left of the nose/mouth axis.

    Still enjoy your sketchbook, beautifully colorful.

    Wasn't Peter Lorre fatter? :p Anyways, like the understatement on the portraits, and the horse looks cool too, especially considering that angle and pose.

    Hehehe, I'm doing something similar with the portraits, but not as good as you

    Love the horse one.. only thing missing is a bit of stronger shadow between head and neck

    The monarch and the winter fairy have a really nice feeling, specially the fairy, reminds me of the Disney's sleeping beauty

    Love the swan one

    Love the last image, though I feel like it could have a wider value range for further impact. Also really like the swan in your last post and everything in post #496. Keep up the good work!
