Great stuff man, great to see you back and running! That skin of the grey hared girl is really beautiful made. Keep it up Those characters designs are kicking as well maybe you could try some crazy pose next time?
Oh man, I love your pencil stuff! You are very skilled at rendering the human face! Keep it up.
shad-: Thanks dude ! I think you are right about those spikes, i shouldve left them out of it thanks for the crits!
muz: No way dude! but thanks for the compliment
sarmati: thanks you!
creusa: Thank you! im glad u like it
mitchoo: Thanks for the comment man! i indeed have to try more crazy poses im to boring!
A little update! enjoy, or not,, ur call!
hey mr lake.
Nice updates lately! on the recent batch im curious as to the almost sketchy contour lining on the figures- trying a different approach? the in motion running fella is nice,and its great to see you having a bash at traditional too - with the digital portrait of the female i think the lips are slightly too low,dont forget to flip a lot to keep an eye on these things buddy.
Never Attempt the Possible;attempt the impossible and even if you fail,you'll fall among the stars.
That big figure is coooool although his leading foot seems to be positioned really weird for his pose. Kind of reminds me of hogarth.
Them skulls be weird, really badly made whoever did that, but you have better ref now, it doesnt have the hard perspectives like those but at least they're accurate. Nicely drawn as well
Not quite sure what's going on with the sitting lady underneith, she seems pretty messy compared to most of your more recent stuff, although it looks kind of weird that her nose is rendered, but nothing else on the face.
The shoes are cool, I like the drawn one, although it looks like it should have more darks, it's all very midtoney at the mo. The oil is great, really liking th colours you've got, especially the reflected blue. Crit wise it seems to be lacking and real hard edges, it's all very sketchy, make bringing out a few cleaner edges would make it pop a bit more.
I already commented on the others on skype so yeah, keep it up! woooooo intenseeeeeee.
Awesome. Sorry for the lack of constructivity. This time, I just love the whole update :p
Negative space drawing is great, and those are damn good skull studies ! : D
Thank you all for the comments and critiques! im a little tired and im not gonna write a thank you personally, next update i shall i promise,, i just wanna get to bed
but wanted to update this sketchybook with a still life i did tonight and some wolfs i did the other night
And sorry im not replying to you each personally.. solly!!

thats a pretty damm awesome update dude! Loving both the shoe and the wolves! keep it up!
Oh, one quick crit with the wolves, their fur seems to be all going in exactly the same direction everywhere, looks slightly unnatural, maybe mix the direction up a bit if you do any more on work on them further?
phade: Thanks dudeee!
lambert: thanks, i hate painting fur, but ill try to look into it before i call it finished!
nixa: thanks nixa! glad u like it!
Rama: as you command sir!
a quick update.. life drawing and went to the zoo with a sketchmeeting! and some portrait commission and show a little of what i was painting the wolves for, its not done yet, more characters should be in the picture, but just 1 is finished now, im to busy with preparing stuff for the exhibit and other stuff keeps interfering so i barely draw or paint and its bugging the shizzle out of me!! hope next week will be betttah!
Great last updates man.
Digging those animal sketches!
You're improving a lot - I like it!
With your pencil sketches (some of them are very nice) you sometimes seem a little .. shy. Try and make stronger lines; bolder lines. You could always erase them when they go really wrong, but I think you'll get the hang of it soon enough. They will make your work even better. (I hope I'm explaining this correctly) Keep going !
Your improvement in form is staggering! The studies really seem to pay off and your work has taken on a stronger essence.
Rbeek dude, you are doing studies like a mad man! The hands are my favorite. Keep those up I think your digital painting could use more exploration and experimentation with brush types / shapes and layer types to start to really add some punch to your digi works. The round airbrush / hard brush is pretty limited on what looks you are going to get at the start. If you google search brush sets for different pros you like you can sometimes find really cool brushes you would have never thought of.
Animal studies are really nice too. The character and wolf piece is coming along great. She seems a little off balance though. Maybe try twisting that left shoe out to the left more. Its up to you. Either way keep pushing man.
Thanks all for the crits and comment!
Was busy with preparing and having the exhibit last week , so barely no drawing was done!
That will have to change again
Here is a character composition i did yesterday
And i met with Phade we did quite some paintings and some awsome collaborations. which was a lot of fun!
Ill try to update soon again!
meeting was the bomb dude! We gotta do some more collabs sometime! That character compo turned out quite nice btw! Speak to ya soon
I've got used to seeing cool stuff in your sketchbook, but lately this stuff became even cooler xd This piece with dudes with goofy hats, and flashlights instead of eyes seems to be very promising. I wish you push it farther. I hope you will post soon. Cheers
Awesome "new" stuff, Superroger. I haven't been here in too long and/or on skype.
don't adapt the bad habit of not updating as well, I'm warning you.
I wanna see your new work!
well im sorry tony! but im on holidays right now.. ill update when i get back.. but dont expect all that much new stuff.. im mostly just relaxing and trying to learn and get better through reading for now.. to much distractions here! Will try to go die hard again when i get back
