i just scanned a bunch of recently done sketches. some of them were made in my sketchbook, some others i did on loose printer paper.
some different demon thumbnails. they all are about 1 inch high; blue ballpoint pen
a two-headed demon idea that popped to my mind; black ballpoint pen
creature design; black ballpoint pen
a dwarven warrior, about 2 inches high; blue ballpoint pen
some different heads. i found that my new sketchbook has way too coarse paper to draw on it with a b pencil so i switched to my 3h for sketching. slowly acclimating to it...
barbarian sketch. again, 3h mechanical pencil and 2b wooden pencil for some softer marks and heavier darks.
a necromancer with some undead he just summoned; blue ballpoint pen
crits highly appreciated

Love the barbarian and the necromancer. I have a this thing for sketches fone in ball point pen. I guess it's the spontaniety of it. good stuff!
There was much rejoicing in the realm of the Harvest Gods when man created the beer, light could not penetrate.
i dont think i could feel anymore artistically inadequate :p
mitch: thanks :chug:
i love ballpoint pen, too. it's lots of fun sketching around with these things. i wonder why everyone regards them as "dead line" tools...
sin: thank you a lot
i had to ask davi what exactly you meant with your comment, though (i'm german and completely insensitive to the subtleties of english language )
glad you like them!
i finally managed to pick up a brush pen. they're damn hard to get here...
i hadn't so much fun since long time, though
these are mostly small graffitties in my sketchbook and no full sketches, though. (hey, i'm just beginning and get warmed up with that toy!)
small thumbs (barely 1 inch per figure) about diabolic-looking mounts and riders
one more doodle, this time with a mecha tank.
to the left, one more unshaved face with sunglasses and to the right is a portrait of saddam. (no offense meant. initially, i was doodling faces, my father came round and said: if you paint this guy a monster mullet, it'll look like saddam. i didn't believe and tried it. )
and a small hommage to the incredible coro.
he told me he sometimes uses the combination of pilot hi tech-c pens and his brush pen and i wanted to try how well these two tools work in one picture.
c&c as always, highly appreciated.
sweet sweet stuff man. Why doesn't it look this good when I use a ballpoint pen? Bah! Anyway, beautiful work. I love the brush pens stuff.
clown: thank you i had most of my drawing practise during boring school lessons, so i learned three things particularly:
-drawing with things that aren't top-notch drawing materials (although i consider a ballpoint pen one of my favorite drawing tools nowadays)
jens: the influences were as follows:
left one: large lizards, the one eva in evangelion that becomes an angel. (the way it crawls)
middle one: hyena
right one: horse
middle and right one being stretched in height, basically like the horse salvador sali once painted.
glad you like my stuff
cool stuff, i really like the demons the best
really nice stuff u got there. I like your pen sketches but i lve your brush drawings. What brush is that and where can i Find one???
There is nothing wrong with using a photo to help you see things.
No one complains about life drawing,
so take a photo.
its easy, and will improve your piece greatly."
davi, thank you a lot. i usually have a lot of fun doing lots of these small things... just playing around, no fleshing out of too much etail and if the approach is shit then ist is barely a square inch of space wasted
iwasink: it's a "pentel color brush" in black.
i guess you can find one in a good and well-sorted art materials shop.
they aren't even expensive and you can refill them.
yeah the demons do rock
