Oh my god your work is so alive.
I wish I could think of more but I am just enjoying this stuff lotsa lotsa muchos!
Metric's Synthetica was on repeat all summer.
holy crap i love this sb! got some awesome stuff here its very fun, very graphicy im really liking it!
Help me improve!
Hehe, that idea with faces of meth is brilliant. I love your sketchbook overall and specifically your linework. Do you have any tips on how to improve linework. Or maybe you want to share what your thoughts are, when you lay out your lines? That would be awesome.
embee: Thanks! I'm not sure I can offer much in the way of advice re: linework, but I can try to explain how I work with lines? Digitally as I'm sure y'all can tell from the sketches in here it's a pretty messy free-for-all when I'm laying out the initial lines. When it comes time to refine I just try to lay the strokes down confidently (there's a lot of undoing and trying again multiple (too many) times) until the line looks right. Sometimes it helps to zoom in pretty close and go slow if I'm trying to outline something and I'm having trouble getting the line uniform in weight. With the traditional penwork I just try to be as confident and fluid as I can, but I'm still trying to improve my confidence with it.
Hedwig's all done. (Yikes @ those sequins.) For reference here is the song I lifted the text from:
Very interesting linework. Tons of character and very expressive. I like it! Keep it up.
Thanks for the advices on line-quality. They seem somehow contradictory though I try going for the fluid approach currently, as i am working solely tradional. For this i do quick sketches (ForScience wrote me an advice on this into my sketchbook). Seems to work well, but i have to force myself to keep fluid also when i have a lot of time...
Anyways: I really like your whole style. Especially your lines and choice of colors!
Btw: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is a great movie, i liked it, altough it was a liiittle strange. And i also wonder, what your profession is. Do you do something graphics-related?
That's a really nice update! I especially like the dog and the second woman. She's very expressive!
From what i can see here i would say you could definitely pick up a job that lets you draw/paint. I'm no expert concerning industry and such but your work looks professional.
How much time do you dedicate to drawing/painting?
Manuel: Thank you, that's very kind of you to say. Maybe one day! The goal is to draw at least every other day, but work and school suck up so much time/motivation that it ends up being far more infrequent. Though the pace has been improving lately.
Naidy: Aw, thank you!
Trying to double down and really work on finishing a sketchbook.
One day i will come to where you live and steal your sketchbook. really.
I love your drawings! Your linework is absolutely amazing...
I really like the hatching you do for shading on those colored pencil drawings. Your last few faces are quite good
