Lovely figures and the zombie is just awesome
WOW ! O_O Stunning landscape +1 !
I also love the robot / zombie, though I think it's kinda static, which is sad because it's design is cool !
(Now I'm gonna give you the order to scann all what you're hiding to us, for the good of our retinas )
shad thanks a lot
I originally had the zombie thing dragging a half human corpse over the floor.. but after starin at this dudes face for so long i was just so sick of it, i just finished it up and called it done.. ill just have to make something way more cooler next time..
the sketchbook im not gonna scan but i did manage to take 2 photographs of 2 portraits i did for peeps..
hope thats not to bad.. though the photo quality is extremely poor.. but they are on a1 paper.. so they are pretty large
and i phone just cant handle that without a lot of light it seems
okay those photos make my drawings look rly bad in real they rly do look a lot better .. ugh :X
The enviroment with the crashed plane looks great! good stuff

Hi again ! I'm glad you showed us some traditional !
I love the first portrait, as far as I can see on the picture, it seems that you shaded it with a "sketchy aspect" crosshatching, which is awesome
The second looks really nice too, and it seems you did a great job with the hairs value, but I like the rendering of the face worse.
Looking forward to your next update =)
Loving that enviro man, I think you overrendered Jack though, there's a whole lot going on and not many places for the eye to rest. Tis cool though!
Those portraits are nice too man, are they for your exhibition?
Your improvement inspired me to kick my own ass back in to gear. Keep rocking! Subbing to see more
Nice work - really great character studies especially.
the jackel: Thanks! glad u like it
Shad-: Hey again! yeh i almost always draw x-hatched. I simply cant do it any other way the photoquality is rly poor. so these dont rly give a good impression of how they rly look like. sorry for it
dan: Thanks for the comment DEWD ! yes, those portraits are for the exhibit,, but the photos are such poor quality, think i should not have posted that shizzle up.. :X
sweron: Thank you!
hala: Thanks for the compliment! and YES!! U SHOULD kick ur own ass if you feel like ur slacking! draw harddd!
michoo: hah yeh i should do more of em.. just trying to find the time , motivation and inspiration.. i hate or atleast find it freakin hard to draw up landscapes
rama: thanks rama im updating right now!!!
thegrayslayer: thank you!
sonia: Thank you sonia!
Thank you all for the support, the crits , the comments and the compliments! They keep me motivated so again! Thank you all for doing so!!
Here a quick dump of stuff.. from today and yesterday!
arm studs mind..
posemaniacs, trying to do them as quick as possible.. for osme reason the 30sec timer doesnt work in my browers.. so had to improvise
studies with some mind crap fixed in there
my neighbor, yes, i live in a spaceship.
30 secs posemaniacs look awesome !!
And the last one reminds me so much of Doria from dragon ball Z !
Great update bro
Those arm studies are sweet, and really impressive from mind.
I hate posemaniacs......
Mucha is a 'G' you shall take over the world if you continue to study him. Those sketches are cool, although I think some of the arms look a bit manly...although I haven't seen the images so that may be how they were.
You're getting pretty damn handy with your figures, I think the next step should be to work on figure interaction. Lets see 2 guys fighting, or if you're more pervertedly inclined, 2 girls fighting! Fuck go all out, lets see a sketch of a war! You can do it!!
Alien is cool, but shad is correct, looks like dragonball z! I think it's the armor, but I bet that's just coincidence. You got the portraits down, lets see a full body alien/monster?
I am a lazy mofo, so I realise my comments are mighty hypocritical.....however just because I'm a slacker doesn't mean you can't keep improving!!
So please ignore any urge to tell me that I should spend less time criting and more time drawing (I am very aware of this) and keep showing my ass up!
shad: Thanks m8! Doria.. he was pink! .. and even uglier thanks though!
mitchoo: Hey thanks man, some where a little over 30 seconds so a little cheated there.. but most where 30 sec i promise .. and yeh i try to keep it as economical as possible saves time
ramina: yeh i keep telling him that.. he just doesnt listen thanks
Dan Lambert: Thanks for the feedback and crits dude ! appreciated!
Oren: Thank you sir!
A little pencil work was done over the last few days.. i rly have to learn to PAINT figures, so i tried these photostudies.. and failed at them put i wont give up!
there are some terrible mistakes in these pages.. i dont know why i do not notice that when drawing it all the time.. i sure do notice it when scanning and i wonder if i should actually post it up.. for you to make fun of me.. here we go!

Nice update dude, awesome sketches as usually! Your anatomical sketches are super fluid, nice. Learn me that!
Cool photo studies! I like the last one the most. Those faces really seems the hardest, maybe it helps to make them less detailed? I don't know for sure, but they feel a bit different style then the rest... Keep rocking!
Snazzy, gotta love the fat chicks.....
Nice sketches but some of your head proportion looks a little off, but I'm sure you're aware of that, just couldn't be bothered to change it when it was drawn :p Clearly my laziness is becoming a bad influence on you!
Some cool faces as well, although some of them aren't your best. I think you have a tendency to make the features slightly too big on the head, so maybe work on that a bit? Fuck knows, they're still pretty damn good considering you haven't studied them in a while.
The photostudies are nowhere near as bad as you seem to think they are, even if they are a bit different to the photos, they still look correct on their own so thats always a plus.
I think you might benefit from playing with the hardness on your brush a bit more as well.
Great update, keep up the pace!
Lovely girls there. Not because they are naked mind you! they have really nice skin tone there. Although the second from the last, not sure the legs feel a bit off but I can't really put my finger on why.
Love the head sketches though, I'm not sure if they were referenced, either way they're really nice, I tend to wonk the features when I do them- even when I try to keep the center line in mind! Practice makes perfect I guess!
Keep it up more updates!
excuse me all for being away for a bit, was in bed for over a week,, some kind of stomach infection , so that was super stupid!
Anyway, im back now and i will try to pick up the pace
Thank you all for the support! I will try to answer and comment back next time, i just have a lot to catch up! so gotta move!
Thank you all once more!
till next time sweethearts!

Your sketches are awesome as usual
I also fell in love with the grey-haired girl !
The only criticism I could do is that I kind of dislike the design of the last alien's shoulder armor. I mean the ball is okay, but spikes are kinda messing the volume, I think.
Anyway you're awesome, and you've got tons of funny designs of monsters and aliens, and that is great !
See ya =)
Hey, cool designs, I love your studies of girls, man.
