Some Friesian studies, done for a commission I'll be working on soon.
May appear very dark on your monitor, I painted them on a laptop with a very bright screen.
Amazing work Lhune, I sincerely love what i see here. You have some GREAT beast designs and I must say you keep all the poses interesting, and this is difficcult thing imo. Lately your rendering technique is improving a lot too. Sometimes I believe the shapes are a bit too much soft, maybe you could try more acute ones, spines, thorns and also geometrical/hard edged ones
keep working good!
Lovely progression, and, lovely creatures!
Firstly thanks for all the help and advice you have given over the many many months even years that I have been posting on here, you are always kind and patient and usually dead on with your comments.
As for your sketchbook its been a blast going through it, very enjoyable, my favourite has to be the blue dragon on the hillside well done my mate.
Quiglayer is right it s the time you take to understand these animals and creatures that you create that breathes the life into them, you are head and shoulders above everyone else as far as I'm concerned, its great keep it comming please.
thanks again for posting
Featheredface: Thank you!

Hi there buddy how are you?
I loved the horse heads you did at the top there, I have gotten a little jaded with all the macarbe and monster stuff around the forum, and was ready for something nice for a change.
having said that the dragons are rather good too, and the enviro studies on page 4 all in all I think this skech book is a mental holiday for me thanks for posting ha ha ha
all the best to you mate as usual.
I will, er I have! I've subscribed Ah haaa! didnt expect that did you!.......
sorry having a mad morning with the kids LOL
all the best matey and hope to see you around the forum soon
Oh wow I love your imagination and how you draw, it's very beautiful *-*!
I love how solid your work is, it's so refined and smooth. Really really refreshing - it's not a bad thing at all. It's the kind of look that captured me as a child when looking around some of my favourite illustrated books. Keep it up!
Really nice stuff! Your anatomy is really active and dynamic in most cases, reminds me a little of Claire Wendling. If I had any recommendations, it would be a little more life painting and let it infect your illustrations a little- sometimes you have very nice light, but other times it feels as if you are coming to conclusions without much knowledge of how light plays on the materials- but overall, very nice stuff! Thank you for stopping by my sketchbook as well
wow, great updates! havent been here in a while, i missed alot! but evrything is looking really nice! since you mentioned how you get caught up in details, i thought id just say that zooming out alot can help with that alot. i do it constantly when im working, just to make sure certain elements aren't overpowering others, and that the image as a whole has a definitive focal element, clearly defined by its level of detail or sharpness of contrast. just something ive picked up, but you probably know this already, just put it to use! haha. great work though man!
Justin: Thanks so much for dropping by! I had never heard of Wendling before, her works are quite lovely. You're absolutely right about that lighting, I need to work on that pretty badly. I'll be doing real life studies whenever I can in the coming weeks.
NickyBeats: Actually I work very zoomed out most of the time, heh! The problem is when I do start zooming in and refining certain areas, I don't really know when to stop, like when it's "enough". Even if the zoomed out picture does look okay, I never know which rough edges to leave alone and which ones to polish. Thanks for stopping by!
berniebakari: Thank you!
A bit of style exploration and concept work for a school project.
Last is a WIP. I feel like I could do much better but for now these'll have to do (deadlines). I'll probably have time to improve the last two over the course of the coming week.
