Thanks man! I will for sure keep it up.
Gotta love these sketches. The concepts are so crisp, it's awesome! Anyways, you're improving with each post, so keep posting!
Hey man, cool stuff. You might want to work on the platting on the legs. Some of the futuristic soldier pics look like their legs are to bulky, and not a lot of design going on within it. keep it up. lookin fo mo
Da Vinci was a concept artist
11/30/03-11/30/05. Thanks CA, for all the great inspiration. When will I update? I dont know...
Man, your characters are killer fo' true.
Nice work tek, this stuff is looking really solid. You do a good job of keeping everything aligned and in persepective. I like some of the shapes and design-ish stuff you do with the anatomy too.
You could up some of the techish stuff. That last robot is a cool design but the joints and articulation aren't convincing enough, it looks like you do your research but maybe look into heavy-machinery hydaulics and joints - it would add allota puch.
peace, see you in sf dude.
hey guys.. thanks so much.. I'm really glad you think I am improving. I agree with the crit about my tech stuff.. drawing tech compared to drawing organics just doesn't flow the same... but I am working on it.. its all in the head! Keep an eye out here.. thanks again.
hey. thanks Sketch!
Hey, you are developing a very creative comic style
The last girl with the war hammer and dagger looks kinda wonky on
the anatomy, the crotch area looks weird, I think
wimen have some space in betewen the crotch area
I am almost sure someting is wrong there.
The dagger semms a bit unfinished and plain
the handle is too thin, it looks unpratical;
She looks a bit to manly but that is due the fact she is a
female barbarian so i dont
The spare parts self growing medic its one hell of an original idea,
keep developing it, its looking great !!!!
Keep the updates coming, looking good dude!!!
she's forging the sword dude. . see the anvil in the back.. tha handle is the iron or forged steel, which is then wrapped with a leather or wooden handle.... but your probably right about the legs.. thanks for the comment!
Thanks Jokisalo. I will sure try
"I need 150 Sets of 350 double sided pages on customer supplied stock, each set requires 23 pre-printed interstatiary cardstock pages and 7 pre-printed tabs plus 6 tabloid pages (folding required) to be hand colated, 3 hole drilled and inserted into binders, color match to customer proof, and shrink wrapped by 7am monday"
"uh, sorry sir. Looks like the, uh, dilithium matrix is out of alignment with our fuser-quad lazer on the xerox 6060. We're waiting on a technician to service our machine. You'll have to goto another store."
"wait, isn't the dilithium thing from star-tr....."
haha thanks for the comments! feel my pain!
Wow, man your work is getting really good... the bikes, the star wars inspired battle, the girl on the bike, that other dude with his heart on the outside! Wow,! crazy... Keep it up....
Mainloop- man i must be dyslexic.. cuz i thought you asked how many people are on lsd
THANKS VIGOSTAR!!!!! Keep a lookout here, bro!
cool skitches. I can see you coming along. I remember seeing some of that earlier stuff before (like the seated soldier) and thinking that the proportions were kind of wonky, but it looks like you've been ironing out some of those kinks. the "cursed cavanaugh" kicks ass. Love those talons.
Everytime I see your signature a little piece of me dies for not being able to go to the SF workshop. Curses, I say, curses!!
Anyway, killer thread coming along. I look forward to seeing more.
hey thanks Auden.. means alot.. drop me some advice and encouragment from time to time.... peace!
thanks alot Sanby.. keep an eye out.. later
5 bones :::: locked on this thread!
hey, thanks a million to everyone... I have been developing this character for a long time.. each mask has a different power or property. He carves the masks himself and imbibes them with power thru spells and materials used.. His name is Maskid. I think this drawing was a good breakthru for me.. It took less than an hour and is alot better than some drawings I noodled to death. I'll post some more tommorrow, so keep a lookout. thanks again!
That roman esq. knight towards the the top is amazing. The shading is so realistic. You can totally tell that he's about kick some kiester. Awsome work!
You're pretty good!
You said to "tear you up", but all I can say is... LINE WEIGHT!!! Your proportions are good/great, you're detail is good, your designs and layouts are well thought out, but you need LINE WEIGHT VARIATIONS to really "pop" the subject matter. Since you're doing mostly line drawings this is very important.
I don't have any examples to show you right off, but think of it like this... Things that are closer to you might have thicker lines, things that are on the shadowed side of an object might have darker lines. You can even "blur" lines a bit for things in the background (if you're not using pen and ink).
I hope that's the type of critique you wanted.
actually... you did pretty good with line weight on this one:
Whereas in a lot of the other ones it seemed your line weight was arbitrary.
nice thread you've got here.. i really like the maskid drawing a lot. it looks a lot more developed than a lot of your other work in that it is a lot more rendered and does carry those lineweights that everyone's been talkin about. i'd really like to see a painted version of that. keep posting!
Sketches look really great. Gotta start postin' some of my own.
Anyway, tip my Life Drawing instructor gave me recently, lines on lower surfaces should be thicker or darker. This helps create dimension and give shape to a sketch.
[i've been trying to practice this myself, based on this tip ever since he have it to me]
..and regarding your isometric drawing, the aforemention comments from other conceptartists, on Line Weight become incredibly important for more technical drawings. (I do technical design sketches all day)
Darken lines as they approach the "camera" and darken lines that come forward in space. Like the sink edge, top edge should be thinner than bottom. A darker line on its silhouette will pull the sink forward of the items behind it.
wow, thanks alot guys.. I will work more one that.. just got painter nine.. so I am drawing up a storm and trying to overpaint. Keep a look out.. I really like some of my new drawings.. spending a lot more time on each one and SLOWING DOWN..
Always loved your stuff... can't wait to see your updates with the new Painter IX! Everything's looking great as usual, Teyekanik!
Keep it up!
1c! (standing b/w man) Wow. Beautiful composition, balanced either way you look at it. Totally love him. Especially that it's so clean, only b/w.
I love the contrasts, gives the impression of hard sunlight. Great work, man!
Good stuff! I like very much your characters. Your robots are so good too.
Here are some very good pieces of work!
hey guys, thanks so much for all the attention.. I am working on alot of stuff, just too lazy to scan it
I will though, so keep an eye out here.. also working on the line weight thing... thanks for that awesome crit!
Can't wait for the next update, you have some really nice stuff!!
hey teyekaniks...some nice stuff you've got in here. i think my favorite drawing is the one of the maskid....that concept is great and i wish i would have come up with it first haha...i really like some of the themes you have in your characters, it seems some of the influences are same ones i'm into, which is kinda fun for me to seee how other people use those influences. but yea, keep em coming...i see you live in san francisco, i'm out here in oakland, so if you ever wanna draw sometime, hit me up man..always lookin for people to sketch with.
/agrees with slickcoder
Amazing work here, really it is. You have an abundance of talent, and I don't think I'm qualified to hand crits here!
Keep it up!
He who asks is a fool for five minutes,
but he who does not ask remains a fool forever.
hey man, some good stuff. About this image. Parallel planes converage at the same vanishing point. The only time parallel planes actually APPEAR parallel is when the planes are being looked at directly on from the "side of the paper" so to speak, or directly at the front of them. Any other view, and the planes begin to take a path that shows their inevitable collision.Originally Posted by teyekaniksome isometric
N & B
One2hit - you wrong and your right. Its not a perspective drawing, its an isometric. Its definitely never happening in the real world, but its a trick that give the feel of 3 dimension, but with any vanishing points or recession. uh.. look it up on the net! It's hard for me to explain.
thanks for the comments!
hahahaha, I've never been in here before. What a friend I am.
Naywya, I've seen all of these sketches but the last. I know you are improving and I have to give you daps for that. My only crits would be things your already working on.
But I wanted to comment on the line weight shit everyone is talking about. Maybe think of it as edge awareness. Try to think about which edges need to pop (come forward) and which ones need to fall back. Then 'weight' them appropriately. I.E. your edges which are falling back will be lighter and 'broken up', while the ones you want to have the most contrast and pop, will be hard and thick baby. yeah, hard and thick.
Rembrandt was a master at this. Take a look at these two sketches and figure out which lines come forward and which ones fall back. Why did he do this? Figure that out and you'll be on your way.
Oh yeah, then cry because they are fucking amazing sketches.
crit to your last sketch: Its a nice drawing, good feeling. The only thing that bothers me is the depth of the head. It doesn't seem to fall back far enough which makes him look like a dolt. Other than that, I love the flow of the clothes and the pressure you can feel on his cheeks. His hands really feel like he is fighting off some unseen force and trying to get to the little embryo. and your improving your line weights in this sketch, Nice!
How come you never come to my sketch thread?!!
You drunk bastard.
See you Friday.

your work is beautiful... i am in my first week of my first storyboarding class at savannah college of art and design, and your drawings make me want to work extra hard. your concept drawings are wonderful! keep up the good work...
Drawing is fun.
Though only crit that I could find is that you seem to consitently make your characters in a pose where one foot is towards the viewer, while the other is point so that its side is to the viewer....though that seemed to have stopped.
Also, the face on the second to last sketch seems slightly small for his body.
Good stuff man...very good.
MWHAHAHAHA! Brave Fencer Mugoblin!
great work, you're imporvement is amazing. I think our little Gobbie frind's legs are a bit to small, though.
He who asks is a fool for five minutes,
but he who does not ask remains a fool forever.
On your first post, you asked for advice. I can honestly say, that I've struggled to think of anything you need to address as a matter of urgency. I would say that in places, your anatomy is a bit off, but again, not by much.
Also, at the risk of sounding like a broken record, I think that the palette and tonality in your colour pieces is a bit flat, and limited, especially in the flesh tones.
PS: no, I don't think I'll revist Harkonnen. I might give him the Sculpey treatment one day though.
aaah, summer puddings on my sketchbook! *Swoon*
Thanks man... I am working everyday on my color stuff.. its opened a whole new way of thinking for me ... so keep a lookout.
yup, nice stuff man, dig the last one,
i feel like you, i am so lazy to scan ! But you should motivate yourseld, 'cause i'm watching ya bud !
Hey, man! Haven't been here in too long, I'm going to subscribe so that I can keep up. After looking over your sketches again they've really inspired me to draw more original stuff! Thanks for that. As usual, everything from you is looking great although I'd like to see more! Don't be afraid of the scanner...
Anyway, looking forward to more and thanks for the inspiration!
hey man, cool stuff. you have a nice style going on here
havent much to crit really, way above my standards ^-^
one thing i noticed about the hellboy one, why is his right arm (our left) going in below the shoulder? maybe im just retarded ^-^
i dont think the filter makes it look too bad, kinda reminds me of hpx stuff. maybe you could go back in afterwards to flesh out some of the main areas of interest or something, so its not all the same sharpness *shrugs*
looking good, hope to see more soon
that hellboy painting is amazing, except that the tail, well, its annoying me.
it just looks very flat. kinda like you spilt some paint on it.
that's pretty much t' only gripe i can put in.
everything else is simply amazing.

Well...when I looked at the name of your sketch book and I saw that it had a 4 star rating and only 2 pages I told myself..this person must be really GOOD! and yes. I was right. you are good!!
I really like your art man!
