LtPlissken, I have to say that I really enjoy your work.
The ammount of effort that you put in to improve on yourself is astoundingly motivating to me, and I enjoy periodically browsing your sketchbook for things to help me just let loose into my drawings. That's one of the great things about Conceptart.org, you get to share each other's pains and help each other grow, mostly unknowingly to those who you are inspired by.
Thanks for sharing your journey with us. Can't wait for more updates.
I was just about to complain about the lack of nudity.
aah, about that last thing with the carnage suit. yeah, I know. we'd probably put out the most stunningly shocking vile thing imaginable. and after all that trouble I try and keep a semi-respectable front too. I forget why... oh right, mental institutions. :p
The painting in post #2493 looks good Is it finished or are you going to add something else?
I wish you Merry Christmas!
With the alien in the helmet, you really need to finish it; only half of it is rendered, while the other half is blurry. Same with the girl with the big boobs, you render a few escaped pubes, but nothing surrounding it is to the same finish. I know you can do it.
Thanks LT! Unfortunately, these holidays have been very sad.
I hope you had great X-Mas and also wishing you happy new year
Some of those mental institutions out there are waiting for me, I am absolutely sure
about that, we should re-consider the art that we are producing, cause it can hit
back with a karma packed beef hamburger. You are a big support for me lately,
thank you for cheering me up each and every time.
Hi there, that piece in the post #2493 is finished, and I already uploaded
to my portfolio, even if itís not the shiniest thing on the shelf. Hope that
I will improve more in the future, thank you for your visit and support.
Ah, I was happy about this pilot painting, I thought that I learned some new things,
and I already uploaded it to my portfolio. I implemented some soft edges beside
the hard edges, cause I thought that if there are too much sharp edges or too much
soft edges, then the painting becomes boring, so Iíve tried to mix it up. And the CEF
commander is also finished, she is pretty sharp, I was super satisfied with her, but now
you made me sad Mrs. Spot cause you are saying that it all looks blurry. I will have to
pick my gear up together and go back to the laboratory to reevaluate my situation and
to attack the battle field from another side. Thank you for helping me and criticizing
I think thatís the way we should all improve. And merry Christmas to you Mrs. Spot.
Whatís wrong man? Donít make me sad before New Yearís eve, I am worried.
I hope you are ok and whatever happened that your positive thinking and strong
spirit will help you to get out from that black trouble. If you need anything, if I can
help, note me. Thank you for coming here and for wishing me a happy new year.
I've decided to work more on this environment painting;
You'r getting better with your paintings man i like the house with the blue mood and clouds behind (middle one), maybe go bigger and more detailed? I'm sure you can handle that. About the christmas, well, we are fucked family when it comes to behaving and after the christmas it was all about quarrel until it ended with battle.. After 15years my cliffhanger dad again hit my mother, so things are pretty bad now, seem alot it's gona change after all of this..
Hey man! You've been very helpful to me in the critique center and I've found some of your Lounge posts very inspiring, but I had never stopped by your sketchbook (my bad, I know)!
You've come a looong way since page #1. I specially like your painting of the little house. In my opinion the blue ones look much better than the full color finished ones. Somewhere I think the atmosphere was lost. It always happens to me that my paintings work much better with two or three colors, when I try to get full color I screw up big time haha!
Shoulder to the wheel, my friend!
My sketchbook - Harsh critique always welcome!
Meryy X-mas old art mate !
The last environment pieces you did are looking really awsum !
haha! couldn't they? but still, that's a lot of people to take down.. we'd need some sort of backup. a robot or something.
you are very welcome ofc; seeing you back here, chipping away makes me very happy too. the house in blue with brown surrounding is indeed a beat. great choice of colors there.
Sorry to hear about the family issues, I had the fortune that I never went through anything
similar to that, so I can only suppose what itís like and I believe it not pleasant at all.
All I can do is to encourage you to keep your head up, think positive and donít let
your fatherís behavior to ruin your family and your world. I believe that every problem
has a solution, and once a good friend of mine told me when I was down, that for an
intelligent person there shouldnít be unsolvable problems. I believe that you are an
intelligent person, a great artist who will find the best way to solve the current issue at hand.
I wish I could do more to help, but you know that the right person who can change your
future is yourself, so stay truthful, have faith and donít let evil things to bring you down.
Hey there, I am very happy that you visited my work and left a helping reply. I donít
remember when I did helped you in the critique center, but thatís just a sign that I am
getting older and becoming more forgettable (senile). You are right on spot, the witch house lost
on its mood when I went to full color mode, I realized it, but itís not finished yet. No no
no, I will work on it more and more to look better. I want to see how far I can go with
details here, and I want to turn this to a portfolio piece, I am really determined about that.
Thank you for being so kind to spend some time to help me, I hope that you will stick
around, cause there will be more and more updates in the future. Cheers.
Merry Christmas buddy, thank you very much for taking the time to come here
once again, I will be visiting your book pretty soon (sorry for not doing that earlier).
Thank you, I donít know what to say you are definitely my strongest support,
I will try to finish that environment pretty soon and you say what you think.
And the beer is on me tonight....
CA, whereís the ďTHANKSĒ button?!?!?!?!?!?
I was using that to discharge my cosmical excentric ego boost energy.
Hello! I've seen you a lot around the forums, but never visited this book. You've come such a long way since page 1! 84 pages...Wow. I really dig the helmet on 2491.
I would recommend slowing down a bit on some of those drawings and try to put some figures into perspective/environments so that they aren't floating around. That could really help with your overall construction.
Good work. Will be back
Please stop by my sketchbook!
That witch house looks very idyllic
Thanks for your kind words on my sketchbook, it really gives me courage to fight the good fight XD
I also recommend to place your figures into environments and such. It gives more elements to play with.
Maaan, thank you! miss the thanks button.. Your speech, thinking and writing skill are pretty awesome, have you ever wondered about writing a book?
I am always ready to meet new friends and I am so happy that you took
the time to visit my work. I will take your advice in consideration, try to slow down,
and I will try to put my figures in some environment, cause that is an excellent idea.
Thank you for being so kind to share your thoughts and supporting me, I hope
that you will visit again, together we can achieve miracles.
Idyllic is my middle name, I am so euphoric that you visited, I was starting to loose faith
and believed that youíve abandoned me for good. I will try to put my future character drawings
in perspective and in certain environments, thank you for being so good to encourage me and
to give me some shiny bits of never fading hope.
I had pretty good grades in school concerning literature, most probably cause of my never ending,
never stopping wandering imagination, I very much like to read, read lots of books, but somehow
drawing and painting attracted me more, I can express myself here a bit more, express my
thoughts through images. I hope you are getting better and that your situation is calming down,
I wish you all the best in the future mate. Oh and get ready for the new years eve, charge yourself
with positive power and have some big never forgettable party. Thank you for everything.
Horrifying is my middle name, hahaha,
thank you for visiting man. Iíve just gave you a llama badge!!!!
I will just roll this barrel downhill....
Let freedom ring with a shotgun blast...
This is the first time I visit this thread, and I think it is very special, hah. In a good way! I guess you really like when boobs live their own lives
Sorry for my bad English
Wow, the alien helmet is looking killer. But I like the house the most, the leaves and tree bark with the mystery, magical house in back, very, very cool.
I wish you a Happy new year Lt Plissken and also many hours of drawing and painting, see you next year.

Reading is awesome booster for art and vocabulary Things are calmed but not fixed, i cant tell what's is going to happen, but the current situation could be writen like this:
A Hindu saint, who was visiting river Ganges to take bath, found a group of family members on the banks, shouting in anger at each other. He turned to his disciples smiled and asked.
"Why do people shout in anger shout at each other?"
Disciples thought for a while, one of them said, "Because we lose our calm, we shout."
"But, why should you shout when the other person is just next to you? You can as well tell him what you have to say in a soft manner," asked the saint.
Disciples gave some other answers but none satisfied the other disciples. Finally the saint explained...
"When two people are angry at each other, their hearts distance a lot. To cover that distance they must shout to be able to hear each other. The angrier they are, the stronger they will have to shout to hear each other to cover that great distance.
What happens when two people fall in love? They donít shout at each other but talk softly, Because their hearts are very close. The distance between them is either nonexistent or very smallÖ"
The saint continued, "When they love each other even more, what happens? They do not speak, only whisper and they get even closer to each other in their love. Finally they even need not whisper, they only look at each other and thatís all. That is how close two people are when they love each other."
He looked at his disciples and said. "So when you argue do not let your hearts get distant, Do not say words that distance each other more, Or else there will come a day when the distance is so great that you will not find the path to return.
I wish you Happy new year bro, be healthy a do what you love to do and never stop!
Hi ya buddy!! I hope you had a brilliant Christmas and a fabulous new year!! I look forward to many many more hours of fun, sillyness and artwork, best wishes mate!
A great kind hearted lumbering bullock
http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=209918 = my Sketchbook
uuh. sorry for bailing out on you the last few days. hah. I been knee-deep into that piece somehow. anyway, done with that sssh. really like the final of the house in the forest. also, your perspective in those pencil sketches is definitely getting stronger. keep it up!
and happy new year here's to another one filled with art and good stuff!
Wow Eclipse almost tearing up over here The way you handle the situation and talk about it is very impressive. I've never been in such a situation but a good friend of mine has. And if he reacted maturely like you at that point his bond with his family would be alot better. Dont forget that everyone makes mistakes, some people are just better at admitting their mistakes and making up for what they've done and some people know what they've done wrong but are to stubborn or afraid to admit. I hope the issue will resolve it's self, btw telling them your last message about the hearts moving away and coming closer together or sending them that message could be a good thing. Just had to write this because I wanted to give you my mental support even though I'm probably miles away. Positivity defeats all.
LtPlissken, I came here to watch your sketchbook and tell you my thoughts but responding to eclipse felt important to Now about your sketchbook, god darn impressive at first. 84 pages?!? In. Sane. I hope you understand if I tell you I didn't go through every single one of them Your not only very good your also aspiring other people to become just as good ( including me ) I think your house in the forest painting is simply the best. One tiny tip, not sure if you did this on purpose or not but if you didnt: From the point of view we're watching the piece, we should see the upper part of the mushrooms on the bottom right. Right now we're seeing under them which means we're laying really close to the ground. I see your also kinda obsessed with boobs ( not a bad thing at all :p ) I agree with Black Spot on the detail in your picture. When scrolling through this page I thought that I would see another wip where you started detailing the whole mouth area. It's still a great piece though but that is something you need to keep in mind for your next pieces. Great work and thanks for inspiring so many people!
Ma Sketchbook brings all the girls to the forums, damn right its worse than yours.
