pretty awesome sketchbook mate.
you're faces are really good, i want some more digi painting !!
CHOW 125 sketches, wanted a more mature response from the character, his contentment, looking at the village that was told will benefit from his death, thinking: at least his death will amount to something of a greater good... with that. maybe the brief's ceiling age of 10 for this kid.... anatomy is off, especially the shortened legs....was originally sketch mirror, flip it to check for anatomy anomalies... found plenty... will probably try to digipaint it when i get my tablet... one day... in the not so distance future
(edit 1: hmm... looks like hobbit feet...)

nice quality (and quantity) of sketches looks like you work fast with your pen and improvize along the way.
I notice there is a difference between your muscular studies and otherwise pretty free hand character/etc-kind of sketches. Partly it looks like you focus more on the silhouette and details when you draw your freehand sketches. When working on figure studies it looks like you pay more attention to the form and structure of all the parts in an arm, leg etc.
What if you cared more of these forms while doing the freehand sketches? Silhouettes are ofcourse important to make the figure interesting, butmaybe the result would get even more lifelike and solid? I could be completely wrong though..
keep it going
niiiiiice dude. good with the subtle expressions, like the last scheherazade. let's get some more variety though, and some expression range, subtle and not-so-subtle. nice work with the chow sketches...you gonna do any complete chows? take care dude!
no updates for ages, been slacking off!
chow 128 sketches
the new Stilgar CHOW is getting me really excited thou!!!
Wah! Nice! I really idg the faces of the women in the above post. Beautiful.
Some of the poses seem a tiny little bit stiff but with some gesture drawing that should get better quickly. See you in CHOW?
hey man, you've got some really good things going here. I can see that your pencils are improving like crazy, well done indeed, much cleaner and fluent than page 1.
It feels to me like you are redrawing your lines over and over, still making the lines a little scribbly. The faces are beautiful though and you have some very strong poses with a lot of movement so you have a lot going for you here.
Keep sharing and show more.
Stilgar CHOW 131
finally a painted piece...
sketches for Alia, CHOW 132
with less than 10 hours before threat close, not feeling 100%, doubtful will finish...
Love your work. You'd think all your work would be terribly messy, but its not. I find that incredible. Hehe and no sketchbook is complete without bridgman/sheppard sketches!
two continuous poster coloured piece, which expose a lot of weaknesses that wasnt so apparent with line works or sketches. have looked up a few threats in the site on tutorial which hopefully will help address my poor form making and achieve better overall and detail values...
got the time wrong, didnt realize i've got another 4 hours to complete the thing, but have put the time to good use.... sleep!
wanna test out if concept of an equally imposing character next to each other, Alia in front of stilgar, and hopefully alia's "presence" should over shadow stilgar a bit.... the crysknife scale was a bit off, still too large even by adult standard... but maybe st. alia has good a long one from shai hulud's mouth....
just general questions, to the mods too, how do one attach images that i've attached elsewhere in the forum? i've tried copying their URL link but it always show as a link, even when i've used the attached image tab. just wanna save on resources, plus every time uplaod an image, need to fill out the creation date? can i do without them? .... cheers
really like my dune characters, so decided to do further touch up to alia's face... stilgar might get a "face lift" too... if i've got the time, its going to be another busy month with new jobs and old assignments to complete...
with zoom level of 200 and 300, i guess even a mouse can do the detailing job of a tablet....
Nice sketches. I like the "looseness". Keep it up
rebooting my doodling and studies after 4 months of absent due to health and in foreign land....
well, i've moved too, so no sakura as far as i know. but there may be. we'll see. wedding? o_O WOW! congrats man; how long have you known the luck girl? all the best with that!
old sketches, dug out from spring cleaning. scan them before filing...
recent doodle, long absent = rusty... back to the basic after this.
trying out "simple" crucifix pose... exposing inadequacy in anatomy. not yet explore the various "stigmata" options...
facial symmetry's off...
legs are off... and so is the waist for that matter
stand is totally off, no weight transfer, neither leaning against left or right, just plain flat, anatomy's off too...
hopefully can re-work on them when i get me intuos3...
and nope, not married, but am working on it
shadow moon, a "face huger" growing out and hug the skull from the back...

black's "rider punch"
punching hand shoulder seems to be off??

Wow. Nice stuff. Thanks for the crit on my sketchbook. . you were right on.
The only suggestion I'd have here is I'd love it if your figures had a little more flow to them. . . . I'd maybe just draw pages & pages of opposing alternating curves so they're part of your hand.
