Your creatures are kinda adorable, I like the last one a lot. To me it's easier to draw humans than animals but animals are more fun to draw than humans.

A sketch I did on the plane. It's a pink monster called Charlie. He lives under children's beds, and lures them to him telling them about a land full of candy. Here he is disturbed by a doll while reading his daily dose of comics c:

Hey there, you have some awesome art!! Your really good at rendering and your knowledge on anatomy is great, Im so jealous haha <: Keep on posting, I cant wait to see more! (:
January 4th, 2010, 03:52 PM
Thank you so much!
Here are some more sketches! The two first ones are from around December. The second one is a concept for a thing I have in mind, about human greed and destruction and such. The last ones are some observational sketches (except for the one with striped pants, tattooed head and the boots), which I really need to make more of:

These are some unfinished backgrounds I've had around on my mac for a while. I'm not really sure what to do with them. The one with the fields is still quite raw and unpolished, but I am starting to take a liking to the cloudy one. Not sure if I'm liking the tree to be the subject :/

Hi Khanny, nice to see you here too
Gosh, I love your style... Awesome to see sketches from you! I'm very fascinated by your way of filling your pictures with emotion.
January 7th, 2010, 03:01 PM
Thank you Mokinzi! Your comments always make me smile Nice to see you too!
Some more things:
The first is some concept art for a specie I've invented. I think I will call them Snjór, after the islandic word for snow <: Not quite sure of their anatomy, especially how they move and how their skeleton looks like, but I think I could draw some reference from yaks. The snjór looks a bit like them.
The second one is from end of December. I did some sketches of my characters (I have more, just need to get them through the scanner first), and a wintery scene just to get in christmas mood
Third one is of Charlie.
Fourth one has some hand studies, a bat drawn with a poor pen, some marker things and a annoying pikachu.

click for bigger version found this in my sketchbook. i can hardly remember even making it.

Love your concept creature its lovely, and the colours you use they are so vibrant, would love to see the realism of some of your sketches mixed with the colours in a whole image
January 8th, 2010, 02:13 PM
Thanks! That might not be too impossible to do. We'll see
A quick trade:
January 8th, 2010, 02:26 PM
I love the kind of whimsical nature of your work so different from so much of the stuff on here!
I love the happy ginger cat in post #3! and the little creature with the fish on its head in post #7 really brought a smile to my face!
I'll definetely be keeping an eye on this thread, thanks fr the inspiration

I just got hang of Painter, so I have been fooling a bit around with it. The giraffe is a old sketch I did some time ago, this is the progress picture:
January 10th, 2010, 04:17 PM
I'm not gonna do much more with this now, but I could need some advice from fresh eyes. How are the colors? The giraffe is bothering me a bit (picking colors in Painter is hard )
January 10th, 2010, 05:45 PM
Hmm...since the giraffe is supposed to be the focus of the picture, I'd recommend putting some of the red from the house's roof into the giraffe somehow. My eye keeps going to the house instead of the giraffe because of the red/green color combo on the right, I'm guessing. I LOVE the yellow and blue smoke, though!
January 10th, 2010, 05:58 PM
Oooh, that is an excellent idea! I had not thought about that. Thank you very much! I'll try fixing it! : D
January 10th, 2010, 06:18 PM
really cool creature designs! can't wait to see more
January 10th, 2010, 07:12 PM
fff I love your colour choices so much, they're so appealing haha 3
Umm What Wolfyu said is great, adding red would definitely draw your eyes to the giraffe more. Perhaps making the giraffe a brighter yellow might help too? Right now he appears to be almost the same creamy yellow as the clouds, so maybe making him a more yellowy yellow (lol id say hue or value but i can never remember which is which) might make him stand out more? I dont know, goodluck though it's looking really good so far (8
January 11th, 2010, 05:04 PM
Aww, thank you both, and thanks for the tip Bellachime! I'm working on the giraffe now! I will probably post it tomorrow
Here are some things I've done today!
The birdy was done with reference. Painter is so so much fun!
The rest are sketches done during school (now I see I wrote the wrong date on them. I still haven't realized that we're in 2010 now!)
January 12th, 2010, 06:22 PM
didn't get the chance to work on the giraffe today, but I do have a page of sketches done during school and a fluffy Khanran from last week (or so!)

ohmygoodness these are lovely~ i lovelovelove "Swingset chain"
January 15th, 2010, 05:17 PM
How does the giraffe look now? I think I'll post it on dA now.
January 16th, 2010, 05:58 PM
An animation I did this evening using photoshop. It is a bit wonky, but it's my first time doing a walk cycle, if that counts as an excuse
January 16th, 2010, 06:54 PM
you should try using after effects, or flash, for animation, it's really fun and you'll be able to do a lot more things in it
January 17th, 2010, 07:54 PM
hey khanran, thx for the words in my sb, really like your stuffs too,
you have cool characters in there and you have a great approach with colors,
i already see a great style and universe in your works, i'm sure you'll make something with all that..
My favourite one is the first pencil sketch of post #22, the fox or rabbit with the hat! really awesome, keep on posting!
January 18th, 2010, 04:19 PM
Lav: I'll see if I can get it somehow! I've always wanted Flash <:
