Heh... I actually like this one... inspiring idea there. Realistic anatomy , and the man has a butt for a front
wow your lines are unreal, so swooshy, do you find yourself doing them super quick or do you work slow? Like they look quickly waved onto the paper but nothing looks liquidy, its all solid with form. Fuark i must go draw.
also it looks like you watch alot of porn rofl, got a half bone lookin through this stuff
your fucking amazing keep it up. oh also couldn't help to notice reading about what you go through emotionally and can tell you I also deal with stuff like that and can say it never seems to stop but keep pushing through it you always get something out of it.
Oh wow. Thanks guys. It really is good to know that this kind of emotional crap isn't all that uncommon. I spend a lot of time worrying about it and wanting it to end but I'm not really sure how. I guess I ought to just wait for it to pass.
Thank you so much for the compliments!
After some conversations with Nat. I began experimenting with switching Demetrius's gender. I looove the result... Fucking with gender is hot .////.
Binding is also hot....
I know I promised Anatomy studies. I WILL have them I promise I just keep getting sidetracked... lol.
So lately things have been a lot better. I've resolved to do my best and not take things so personally with work. I've gotten some help with my anxiety and that seems to be becoming a less significant problem everyday. All that's really left now is this mess with my old college, which I think is the last thing I need to sort out before I can really start moving on.
Anyway, I've mostly been drawing stuff for my girlfriend. She's basically been my rock throughout this and without her I don't really know where I'd be right now.
Well I lied, I've also been 'trying' to do master studies. But as usual I think I bit off a bit more than I could chew 8C. Because SHIT its hard. Doesn't mean I'm going to stop though. I def need to get better at this if I'm going to be getting ANY more effective at composition.
I think I need to stop focusing on the figures and more on the composition as a whole (story of my life lol). I have faith that you guys can see numerous mistakes being made here. If you would voice them I'd appreciate it, I need it.
Thanks for looking!!
keep it going! love that "sexy and he know's it guy" lol
Omg I'm so sorry for the long absence. A lot has happened since the last time I posted and I've kind of been handling it as I come. God where do I begin? Aw fuck whatever I'll just post a little of this and explain because there's a LOT of sketches.
The last of my green sketchbook:
Okay... So to start off... I got help, finally. I'm on a drug for anxiety and got some counseling and its pretty much been a 100% turn around for me. I'm more confident and at peace with myself than I ever was before. It helped me to realize that no matter what happens I love what I do. I'll never be any more or less of an artist than I already am and I can accept that.
So I gave up on art school for good. I cannot afford it and as a manager at my work (which both of my new managers are pushing me toward) I'll be making 70k a year plus vacations, company stock, benefits and bonuses. That's a better living than I'd ever make as an artist or a nurse even! And with no school debts to pay off. Sounds like a good deal to me.
About a month ago Megacon was in town. My sister called me a week before to remind me and I asked my boss if she could find someone to replace me that day. Though she didn't have to, she worked it out anyway. It was a very kind thing for her to do and I love her for it. The night before we went I got the idea to print out a small portfolio of my digital work and bring it with me. I actually had the guts to ask some of the less busy artists if they'd be willing to tell me what I could improve about my work. I got a lot of positive feedback. It was really nice and very inspiring.
Lol I wasn't looking for a job, but one of them saw my portfolio and looked through it, then gave me something to ink and bring back. I did it and he asked me to meet him at a local restaurant after the con. When we met, he outlined the basics of the job and told me that I'd start out inking/toning/coloring and what not. But he also handed me two projects that he'd like me to do all of the art for. We outlined how I'd get payed. He looked over my sketchbook and liked the current project Nat and I are working on. Enough to say he'd publish it when it's done. Right now he's getting his company in with Diamond distributions and hopefully Baker and Taylor as well.
Basically I went to Megacon purely a hobbiest and left an apprentice comic book artist. This past month I'd been working SO HARD, because I realize there is an ENORMOUS gap I need to close to reach the level of what I consider a real professional comic artist. So this past month it has just been artartart CONSTANTLY. I bought a light box, Art S. Buck Manikins, copic markers, non-repro pencils and a shit-ton of pens. I meet with him twice a week to work, observe and learn. On Wednesdays I assist him with his small story telling class not to mention every night after I get home I try to draw for at least 5 hours a night whether it be on commissions or small projects he gives me... or even just practice.
It's been one hell of a month...
I'm happy with where I'm going. But I've still got a long way to go before I'll be comfortable with anything that may be published. I've tried to not get too far ahead of myself with this. Because like all things there's no guarantee. Times are bad and the industry is tough. Its very likely the company could fold like any other one might. As long as the opportunity is here I'm going to learn all I can and hope for the best.
Also... I don't know if any of you were following when I was talking about the trouble with my job... well a lot of it was centered around my former boss. He was not a pleasant person to be at work with but he retired in December due to debilitating illness that was not getting better. Outside of work we were always pleasant with each other. He made a point to encourage me about my art and was one of the reasons I went to Megacon in the first place.
He passed away on Thursday. RIP Pete .
Thank you for reading all that if you did. I always say I'll try to post more often but I never do. Truth be told I've already taken enough time to write this post because I've got tons of stuff to do tonight.
Oh well, till next time!
Thanks for taking the time to post
I'm glad to hear things seem to be going good for you! Really inspiring stuff, now I gotta work harder too!
Your lines look really cool to me, I can't wait to see them get even better! Also you drew ponies
Love your flowing linework and great curvy figures.
They feel so organic and natural.
Can't wait to see more.

Really good SB here. Im typically not into this "anime-ish" style of art but, the command and eye for shape, weight and attitude is fantastic. Not to mention I love the perversion. I love creating erotic art but, usually get way too distracted and wanna tackle my fiance mid-way thru. Congrats on the work...
BTW- you ever seen Legend of the Overfiend?
Mainloop- man i must be dyslexic.. cuz i thought you asked how many people are on lsd
As stated on my front page I just recently started using Tumblr again. I really am reaching the point where I have less time to post here unfortunately. There are some of you that I'd really love to follow on there! Hit me up and let me know who you are!
Things are going well both at my day job and with the new comics job. I've got a full load of stuff to get done for this year. It's actually kind of mind blowing and in June I'll be going down to miami for a convention as well.
I want to hide.
Just kind of stumbling around trying to make sense of all this.
Got To say Congrats, it's got to amazing. Keep it going obviously your doing something right.
Damn, I need to absorb this
5* and all tho

There are times lately when I want to tear my own hair out. I'm so busy it's effecting my health. I went to the doctor for the first time in years on Monday and she basically told me my blood pressure is so low there could be something wrong with my heart. I've been having dizzy spells that end up leaving me close to passing out. It's weird. I feel helpless when they happen.
On a bright note, though, I draw for 3-4 hours everyday.
The biggest problem by far is moving at such a high speed. I've got 11 things I've got to have done by june 10th so they can goto press for supercon this year. Having to make my choice fast and then ink it and it's done? That's HARD. I'm used to putting it aside and deciding later where I want the inks to go...
Oh god I've got so much to learn T__T.
I love the way you draw the female form.
awesome stuff in here
