lol, love the owen wilson. awesome sketches n watercolors
hehe, Emo-man. That should be a comic (or possibly it is allready).
Nice sketching! But if you wanna do art nouveau you gotta go totally overboard with the flowers and curly woodcarvings
Some sketches done during me trip to Amsterdam. Before anyone asks: NO, I don't smoke... No "creativity-enhancement" here, apart from being in a new place and around new people.
Last two are random people at a café. People in Amsterdam are pre-tty damn beautiful!
Although your subject matter is quite surreal, your sketches are of very high quality. I have no criticism of them whatsoever (although admittedly that is because I am a novice).
Everything is better with dinosaurs.
Thanks for stopping by man, if you keep at it I'm sure you'll have progressed to give me some more crits in no time!
I'll just keep on keeping on then.

i like your confident drawings of women.
i too am working on shading of volume. it's difficult, especially with females. since i draw women i want the shading to look soft, so i use the flat base of mechanical pencil (HB) to lightly shade. this is good technique when dealing with the bouncy spheres of female architecture, but you have to be careful not to making the drawing look flat (it's easy to do).
one of the big things you have to decide is whether to retain the outer line, or blend that in. this will form a large part of any approach.
Thanks dude! like I said, some people suggested I use hatching to increase the feel of volume. Just like you said, it's hard to use just soft shading without making the form look flat. So Im currently trying to experiment between how much hatching to use and how much should be blended shading. I'm doing this without guidance, so it's just experimenting away I guess. But it goes to reason that the soft, delicate parts might benefit from a soft, blended shading...
Thanks for the heads up!

When archiving sketchbooks, found these old doosies that I just adore. Enjoy! The "abstract" one and the half-finished profile are from life. Love the linework on that one, THIS is what happens when you sharpen your pencils, boys and girls! Must remember to do that ore often.
yumy sketches, and some abstract stuff too. Mmmh yeah hatching would be a good idea, but I can totaly see your abstract stuff going well with just black and white and some heavy linewheight. Or for hatching, try not using a pencil, but a pen, or fineliner. So you stay on doing lines and not shading soft.
Have fun =)
