Awesome pencils! and I just love post #122!
Keep it up!
Nice recent sketches. The arms from the elbow to the wrist seem to bend unnaturally though - a bit like rubber. Other than that, nice work.
thespianmonsalvo:Thnx .Maybe thats the key that makes my characters more fluid and with a lot of movement inside them.But ok ill fix it from time to time
Nquyet:Thank you very much .Well i did some more finished works but right now i feel the need to step back to my studies and take my motivation back.
Here just a simple study i did
Studying anatomy, maybe its one of my favorites
Ok here a small update!!! thank you all for your support
Wow...Your studies are great. I think you must be learning more from yours then I am mine. One thing I will say though, on your last one, the hand seems wrong. If you look carefully (at least on mine) the hand isn't actually centered on the arm, its actually shifted so that the pinky is almost in line with the arm, and the thumb joint is further out.
Warning! Drinking lots of beer can impair your senses. Please do so before you view my sketchbook!
sweet you're still going, great. Hey now...don't worry about your star rating so much. Someone might come in and drop it because they don't think you deserve it...but it doesnt matter. Is your goal to get stars based on recognition, or to become a great artist and to keep trying? Stars can motivate people! but to be honest, I don't find a lot of value in the system. Mine fell to 3 and im human, it bugged me, but I shook it off because that can't be what motivates me The big reason I accept it is because it helps you dig up that inspirational work! however there are also the exclusive sketchbooks...
That was long, sorry! Any tablet is better than no tablet - the only reason i was against the small one is because my hand would always hang over the edge of the small size. If you can afford it, get it, because you will love it more than you know with your attitude to keep going.
you should study some animals take a break from those human parts
Nadesican:Thank you .Well i also see that something is wrong with that but, when you find time can you make a paintover or something so i can have a better understanding? Thnx
Jakers:Ok its all as you said it, thank you .I have to start some animal anatomy etc but keep in mind that i am also working under NDA on character designs, but the sure thing is that i have to do animals so i can expand my artistic horizon .Now about the tablet i see fog in front of me.I started spanish language lessons and i will need monthly money to pay them.Ok anyway ill see what i'll do
Thnx for support!!!
Updates friend, updates! Give us something. haha hope things are well, see you soon
Its just that i am currently working more for the studio i am working and i am under NDA so i cant post
I also have exercises for university including(woodcut,sculpture,painting)+ the spanish language lessons i recently started
You understand how hard it is now to add more things to the schedule
Could you at least post some doodles then? Kmaaaannn... C'mooonn...
Well it's nice you're learning to sculpt. You'll probably benefit alot.
Spend your time wisely mate.
Pierce the moon on your way up.
Thats awesome shit yo
Ok thank you all for supporting.I did something quick as i am more confident playing with anatomy now.After all this training i feel i can handle better the bodies.
Here check this (i am not dead)
Great stuff patriotaki ;D
Please post more!
Xairomai pou briskw olo kai perissoterous ellhnes sto site.
Thank you very much for your comment .
I am currently working on a project and my time is limited.
Thnank you all!!!!
Ok here just a quick painting(greyscale) i did in about 1 hour by only using my beloved mouse .
No presketch no nothing
haha no i still havent bought any tablet cause i need to pay the spanish lessons i started.but ok from the new year i am gonna make some extra savings to take it
thnx for coming (and lol i am the one whos not online that much, and i am sorry cause its been a lot time since i visited your sketchbook)
OK now some recent work i did entirely with mouse (classic )
I also have sketch works but i cant upload them cause i dont have a scanner here.G2g back to home to upload them.
Thats for now.
Just some morning coloring studies that i did in photoshop.
I played with a system of adding hard dark lines giving volume in some places and after that i played with color adjugments making something like a backlight giving some metal qualities i think
Ok today i have a speedie using a lot of different hard edged brushes to achieve some other lvl of detail.
See ya all
Ok i did a quick enviroment by using photoshop and a photo that i used to take some surfaces as texture. This is called photomanipulation? dunno cause i just use some small parts, you will see and will understand.
I took this
and i did the base part(without using it) and then i finish it like this
(EDIT:also did this for final )added a char

I've been out of the loop a while with a lot of personal things happening...I am still picking at art though and I'm going to get more up soon! I still have motivation dont worry haha.
I'm impressed with the variety of things you are trying, such as the last landscape. Its fun throwing something in for a base because you then build up new forms that you wouldn't have made from your head. I like the one you made, though I would tilt the figure to the same angle as the buildings or else the city feels as though its leaning.
Very sturdy feeling mechancial arm, and keep playing with those brushes Gotta take advantage of all you can do digital hey
Thanks jake i hope you will find your rythm again, i know how hard is when personal things come up.
I am also improving my skills in game development(simple game development)
by doing animation(sprites etc.) for adventure game and RPG maker VX
just getting some experiences
Thnx for the support and for comments pal
wow this thread is inspiring!
I love mainly your approach to poses and the way you are able to shadow with pencil (Thing I'm trying to learn ^_^)
Your digital painting are really interesting too.
Thank you for showing us!
I have a sketchbook!
