Amazing stuff Alex! =) The bored piece is good even if you got bored of it =) Lull =) Always nice to see your work, Thank you for sharing bro =)
Dude - sick ass sketchbook. I really dig the studies and your digi work looks so friggin clean. Subscribed!
You'll Get a Free Pair of Ranger Panties. They're like Catnip for SKANKS!
Hey thanks all for replies. Gonna update more over the next few months. Been sick since Feb pretty much, so only done commissions and slept Feelin' good, able to draw all day again now so lets get going!
Takashmen - Thanks I intend to!
Kungfoo - Thanks mate, I will finish that pieces, got some good crits n stuff!
SuperSwank - Hey thanks alot!!
OK, my sisters moved out and left some mugs, I noticed the writing on this when I was drinking my tea - you should all take note, as this is probably the single most important lesson when becoming and artist (or anything else!)
Commissions, holy cleric, might do a value study on this before I paint it.
This is another commission, need some help with lighting etc, anything) Dunno why but its much more saturated on the web browser than photoshop :s
Hey man, glad to hear your planning on posting more.
Both commissions are looking great so far. For the cleric I think you need to add the thumb on her right hand.
The environment is looking great as well. I would may be lighten up the foreground a bit more. I like that you have it in shadow and its working really well but may be its too dark at the moment.
It's been ages since i last been here, maan you're damn good now.
I'm back and kicking again, about that mug, i feel like i just woke up from a 6 months sleep. So lets grab the future's nuts!
We should start some character thread with Danny and some folk, what you say?
You wouldn't mind sparring a link for your environment studies? i would like to has some :3
My observational skills may be great but i said nothing about my drawing skills

Please comment on my deviant art I need friends T-T
BUY MY SHIRTS PLEASE - They're awesome.
Hey Alex! =) Yip, there's truth in the tea! =) Wahaaa! =) Enviro is great bro, composition is nice =) Would suggest maybe putting in some natives, walking about maybe, so we can get a feel for the scale perhaps =) Colour looks nice and fresh imho =) Have fun finishing =)
I love the second comission a lot (and feel anatomy flaws in the sketch one but I can't put my finger into it).
I wanna that mug, I collect mugs I like but neither of them is this great and true. I'm a lazy one and totally feel its wisdom.
Ste- Thanks for the crits man! Yep need a good ref for that hand angle. Also will brighten foregrund too on env, couple ppl pointed that out too
Icecold - Hey good to see da motivation Sure character thread sounds good I think we can learn a lot. I am thinking of at least doing chow regularly after Sept, never tried it before!
Rumple -Thx for the comments mate
My57 - Hey yo. Mmm best place to find them is my IFX sketchbook I think http://community.imaginefx.com/forum...ad.aspx#313273
some daily enviros
Kungfoo - Thx man - yeah some figures need to be added for sure
shnin - Thx! yeah i couldn't work out anatomy, we'll see! heh yeah I think every one of us has to fight laziness and procrastination - I do every morning!
I truly think almost everyone is less lazy and blocked than me... Your enviros are great, I love artistic enviro sketches with a nice atmosphere a lot. The third is magical. If people would look at such paintings a lot, they would be a bit happier and better. At least the visual ones like me Color therapy!
Very impressed by the quality of your lines.
This one is quite complicated and kudos for taking on something so difficult. I feel like the perspective on her head is a bit off... we're seeing a down-shot of it, but we're obviously looking at her from below. Fingers on her right hand seem a bit short, and her hands in general seem a little bit small.
The lines are rockin tho. Great forms.
Very inspiring sketchbook! Thank you for sharing a part of your world! Especially for me those thumbnail studies/sketches that you have made was like a jolt...have to start practicing those soon myself...have been putting them aside for waaaaayyy too long. Anyway rlly beautiful work! Keep them coming!
Alex, whats up dude? love all the newest stuff, especially that nice hot lighting on the house up there! very nice job on those ones. your color work is improving tons man. also your brush control, and stroke economy has become noticibly more consistent. very good stuff!
loathsome - thanks for comment, mucho appreciated
shiNIN - aw, I hope you can get into the swing of things soon! ye I like glowy magical warm stuff, thats mostly what i want to do!
psage - oh thanks for the critique! you're right about the head, i'll have to rethink it with soem good reference
Ztak - thanks mate. yep colour sketchies are very good practise I find, if not only to get you into the mood to paint.
Nicky - hey maaan thanks a lot for the encouragement!
Kungfoo - Thanks as ever matey
DannyK - hey man! thx a lot - we'll get good together!!
heres an unholy acolyte type character a companion piece to the holy cleric, though i think the head is too big at the moment!
watch the hands ! also try some more organic, human like, less fake looking shapes
keep up the fantastic work señor!
i felt bad about what i said, i mean, what i said i didn't back up
okay, so your hands (more importantly her left (our right!) hand) the fingers are stubby like a cherub, i'd seriously just throw in a basic skeleton and probably boxes to figure out the foreshortening. your lines are nice, sure, but you need stop caring about how it looks right now and just understand what it is and how it works in 3 dimensional space yo.
the skulls are cool yeah, but i think centre one kinda looses focus of the babe! if you want a skull in the foreground, think more dynamic and throw it blurred, bigger and lower in the canvas or some bullshit like that. her right arm (our left) seems to not fit into her shoulder, draw the body and then draw the clothes.
check out egon's lines, sure it may not be your style, but that doesnt mean you cant learn from them. i also think you should try and thick of different shapes for head that describe her personality, i mean; is she some crazy bitch? - give her some cheekbones or something! is she a goddess? - make her that in her face yo!
anyway, your doing good alex, it's been a while since i dropped in

really nice work - ive got nothing to crit really for these last few pieces, other than perhaps in those enviro's you could be mindful of using too much texture throughout the piece. If the texture is evident all over the piece then there is no focus of attention. Anyway, other than that youre doing great!
Nice environments and lineworks. Though for the acolyte, her arms/hands look sort of weird but I just can't put my finger on it.
Beautiful sketchbook. Your enviros are amazing and your linework is superb!
