Sporus: Heyyy man thanks so much! I'm glad you liked it, and thanks I wouldn't really call myself I'm an inspiration....
Januz: Haha thanks man, after your comment I decided to work on it a little more...a little.
Hey everyone! Second day...maybe I can keep up dailies ^_^
Uhm so today what did I do...a still life...uhm I looked at Veshkaus SB yesterday and saw he was doing these monster skin studies...I totally ripped him off but it was fun....his are better, looking at mine I feel like a total hack XD
And I sunk a little bit more time into the key dude...I won't make it for chow but I do like the character
Satu: Thanks a lot man! XD Thanks for stopping by
Some randoms for today, I was bored so I drew a Nu Mou...actually the truth is I've been wanting to play Final Fantasy...but I can't seem to let myself have the time to...I decided making something from it was a healthy compromise >_<
I love your use of texture in your digital stuff, it gives it a really pleasant solidity. Your still lifes are nice as well, the attention you give to the reflected light is great.
However, your figure studies tend to have really long legs! Watch out for that. (I noticed because I tend to have the same problem :I)
Clur: Hey thanks I've been trying to find new ways of using old brushes lately...I'm glad it's showing ^_^ and yeah you're totally right...legs are a super weak point for me.
lionheartGFX: HEY, thanks man! I've been really trying to work on well everything, I have been unsure of my progress lately, so I'm glad it shows haha XD
Here's some super quick lizards....just trying to learn about well lizards XD Gah....
Nice sketchbook :o
These recent photostudies really kick ass!
I think your key dude is missing most of his arms though, draw what you can't see and all that. Thanks for your comment
Thanks for visit.
Love your color sense mainly #148 #243 and there is alot more i like here.. good stuff, respect!

Sushy: Thanks ^_^ I might go back to the first one...he certainly is the most interesting.
Kvetch: Hey thanks, and you're totally right...that anatomy is so busted I was having a lot of trouble with the arms...thanks for the crit
eclip-se: Haha thanks man you dug deep ^_^ I had to go back and see what you were talking about XD
Edit: VEN: -_- Making me edit my posts....haha thanks for the image ^_^...make more maybe I'll paint some for you
I like to call this one, lazy and uninspired, there's something about it though that holds some charm to me...O_o
Hey, wanted to thank you for stopping by my SB. Looking through yours I see some definite improvement, keep it up! I need to step it up after looking through your posts! One thing I noticed is that you have good line quality and your coloring is good, I would like to see you work more on form and structure, try building the figure without using line, use light and shadow to build up your subject. Thanks again!
Wow - Really awesome sketchbook you've got here! (Some GREAT improvement from when you started it up! Especially with your figure work and colors.)
Nothing to comment on, really, except just to say keep up the awesome work! ^_^
dawnusllaw: Hey thanks man, yeah my knowledge is a little lacking in some areas...but what you told me to do is actually what I already do on a lot of my studies XD Haha...thanks for the suggestion though!
zryanart: HEY dude where have you been...update your sketchbook! And thanks a ton haha been working my ass off, gotta be good enough to get some jobs
Riley Stark: Haha thanks a ton! I will indeed ^_^
Mike L: Hey Mike Thanks a lot, I'm trying to work with more textured brushes lately...glad it's sort of looking good XD I hope you update soon I want to see what you've been up too!
Hey guys, can you tell that I didn't get a lot of sleep last night O_o
Man I feel like shit....haha anyway some random stuff my mind managed to make today...
Hey dudes and dudettes, sorry for the incredibly lame update today...I've been at work over the past couple days...which has been eating up a lot of time. Uhm here's some stuff pretty crappy XD I've got some more scraps...just some mma dudes and junk I dunno...why I'm saying it...if I'm not posting it but whatever I feel like typing today...so yeah I'm gonna go get my ass back to work see if I can pull something together worth posting...
Looking pretty good! I think you should just keep up what you're doing and continue practicing.
The only suggestion I have right now is with your circular/egg shaped objects-- the edges are a bit too sharply defined & perfect to be "real"! Even the most circular shapes have imperfections and they won't be 100% round. Try working on the transitions a bit more and avoid using too many layer masks. Or, if you do, be sure to go back in and manually add a few spots to break up the implied line. I think it'll add to the quality of your paintings and still lifes.
Syrella: Hey thanks for the crit...you're totally right...sometimes I think I'm afraid that it won't look good if I veer away from that perfect egg form shape, or perfectly sleek arrmour form, it's certainly something I have to work on! Thanks
Here's a totally lame update...today is one of those days where I just didn't get anything done...seems like I've been having a lot of those lately T_T
Oh wow, amazing progress here. Your faces and figures are looking better and better. At this point, I think I would be a great idea to put more time into some personal work(Yeah, I should really be doing that too). It's a great way to know what you really need to improve at.
Keep on rocking, at the rate, you'll kick everybody's ass in no time at all!
Aaron_: Hey man thanks a bunch! I'm working hard...I guess XD but you're totally right I really should invest more of my time into personal work, as lame as it sounds though it just doesn't grip my attention as doing a study. I really need to work on that.
Hey so I got a scanner yesterday, but I didn't feel like scanning stuff late at night...anyway here's I dunno 9 or 10 pages from the past two days...I do pencil stuff all the time, I just never was really able to show it because I never had a proper way to really get it on the computer...taking pics sucks XD
But yeah...here's some stuff from today and yesterday...as well as some quick digis from today!
Very nice studies!
If you want to get into personal work, but are finding it hard. Try some of the challenges again. I find it's very motivating and gets you thinking about how to make things from imagination.
hey man xD
thx for ur support... but seems you are working very hard and know well what to do xD
also ... I loved the animals!

These character poses. body part studies - hands, legs, noses, mouths, eyes, all these stuff is really good. And i am pretty sure they will help you a lot in your journey
There's a lot of potential in your old stuff! Don't leave it - push these Bouguereau study forward! Its started really great!
Also like a lot first stuff from page 4. I like these "searching for new territories" aspect.
I think combining your new skills with old works curiosity could help you a lot
Obstfelder: Hey thanks man! I really should look into the challenges again, maybe it'd spark me.
Fernteixeira: Hey! That means a lot especially from you, your stuff is pretty badass, and I totally suck at animals so I'm glad you liked them XD
tsabu: Hey thanks, and I took a look back at some old stuff, and you're right...some of it wasn't as horrible as I once thought...thanks for that!
So uhm yeah here's some stuff from today! I painted some 10-ish minute landscapes...haha...focusing on colour, it's always a fun exercise, rendering be damned XD
Uhm posting some pencils, and a dude I made today all by myself from my head haha....it's fan art, I played a lot of Golden Sun as a kid, I always loved Saturos the blue bastard
EDIT: Fuck me man...I'll make the studies smaller tomorrow, sorry about that...
