Looking awesome, bro. Is the one head-on-headshot dated 21/10/06 a self portrait? It's got something special to it.
excellent work mate, great great studies and cool helmet design, really enjoying your new book
keep us updated

Tiger: thanks man !! keep updating too, your latest pencils are good =)

Brendan: Ok. Well if you have any idea on how we could make it work, tell me =) Thanks !!

Justin: thank you ! I'm a bit unsatisfied by them myself, I'll do some more and get comfortable with more interesting and natural figures. thanks again for dropping by!
Cup: you're welcome!
Asgardian: well, i haven't any specific paper used. Just normal printing paper. But i reckon the smoother the easier it is to render.
Spade: hehe, thanks ! I got a bit away for a while, msn keeps loading crap scripts on IE. I'll try to get online more often. Thanks again for your find =)
Rodrigo: thanks a lot!
Jason: hey ! yeah, it's an sp.
Shinryu: thank you very much !!
So for today, just quick sketches. Didn't have a lot of time because of homework :s
The first one's a portrait for a friend, second some poop i did during class with a friend (she did the tiny circles and the two big hands), then a 5 minute Mims study (that guy is awesome!) , an sp and finally retouched quickly a previous one. More stuff to come...especially digis!!

Ooo the figure studies are really nice and...figury. (that Mims that its from is really awesome truth be told)
You're really ripping those SPs and portraits up thought, really great work.
OOher. Nice lines. Post more paints/digi please. Your first post promised colors!

Marco: thanks !!
Bludhund : hey ! they're coming, i just gotta move my lazy ass first. I just passed the exam period (which wasn't brilliant on a few subjects) so i can finally fully concentrate on what I'm doing
today: just some random tattoos for a friends.
I could have sworn.....
Great work man! These your pencils is really something to live up to... loving yo' lines. The Asgardian piece is my favourite out of the batch, the tattoos look great and are well designed too.
cya round dude!
Dude your getting better at creating form with line, its good progress.
One thing http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1163017184 theres quite a difference in the size of the eyes on this piece, the pupil as well as the eye itself which is throwing me off a bit.
Brendan: thanks a lot !! That portrait was the original idea i wanted to do for the 1st of November.. but dunno why i chose a normal portrait ^^
Asgardian: thanks for the advice. Eyes are still sometimes a pain for me. Did a quick Hogarth study of them. I'll keep practicing, thanks again !!
Oh sh*t...i think i should throw my pencil away. Since the comp is kind of slow and that he's even worse with ps 7 running...
Gotta do something about the colors. I miss 'em
dood, skeleton study is fukkin pimp.
Are you by any chance going to color any of your sketches?
keep it up!
DUDE! i totally thought i'd already commented in here about how ridiculously rad you were, apparently not!
that last update blew me head off hoho!
(thanks for the comment )
You know what. FUUUCK YOU
These are gorgeous man, loving the hands on that soul keeper's minion. The value structure is great, might need some small and soft highlights on the abdomen but it's really looking great.
Skeleton & Skull = freakin outwordly rendering. continue like this and you'll give Wes a good run for his money in the future.
EDIT: Oh yeah dude, wanted to know - are you using wooden or mechanical pencils? You stuff always looks so sharp, but then you have great line variety and I can't tell which??

Great stuff with the skeleton dude! Much agree with the hands on the minion too
really good effort, good to see you still doing what you can fit around school
really love the dude claw hands also, keep it up .. i think you should try do some more experiments with media also
The contrast in that second one is sexy! Glad to see you pushing it a bit further.
Don't throw out your pencils yet, either, although I think you could really go places with PS.
Keep it up man!
SH!T!!!! Whoa, someone have improved here....damn, yeah, as Brendan said
above, you really getting into the Wes-Pencil-Skill-Level real quick!
I belive its something you do with contrast...I remember pointing that out
first time i saw your artworks..still think that is
Keep at it! you makeing an incredible progress!
P.S Thanks for your support!
hey dude, awesome updates, esp. like the skeleton one. superb execution. but wheres the coloured stuff afterall? show us!
Hey man, I really like your rendering. Good stuff.
Quite damn impressive for somebody your age specially your pencils and the collage style pages where your creativity comes into play.
Tiger: thanks ! yeah, i think i might color some that i like.
kaoki: thanks man! keep posting the nice colors too =)
Brendan: yeah i enjoyed doing them. The skeleton was fun to do too.. but kind of long since it's on a3 paper. And yes, I use a normal mech pencil with an hb lead. I don't know where they're coming from, but they're nice to use. Sharp and hard enough to get nice lines, and smooth and soft enough to do some nice shading...but there's no way i'm getting near wes... =)
J a k e: thanks !!
Spade: thanks. I really want to try some inks these days. I'll try to get some.. if i don't i'll just use an equivalent on ps.
Marco: hehe, thanks. Still life... humm that would sound cool to do
Cup: thanks, i'll try !
Kim (am i right ? :> ) : Glad you like 'em. they're coming !!
Thegnoll: thanks ! yeah, i'll do some more don't worry =)
Dile: thank you very much for your support!
Kicek: i'm working on them.
Moopuff: Glad you're liking them.
Blacky: thanks !!
Trashy: thanks for the nice comment !!!
here's a very quick paint over of one of the previous sketches.
It's a bit rushed, but i'll work on it more. Don't bother with the edges, i'll work on them with the surrounding black color around the character.
Gotta a few sketches on paper, but i'll post them later.
Crits are welcome !!

Looks really good so far, can't wait to see those pencils!
With the skin tones - try adding some reds and yellows in with it, a slight colour variation can work wonders!
Many thanks for the tips in my sb - found them very helpful!
Excellent skeleton study mate! last onr is looking good, looking forward to seeing more
