Very cool sketches and animations Do you use photoshop to animate?
Good job with the studies. I think you got a good feel for those folds.
I feel the red cheeks of the granny is a bit too much. I think it would be better if it was subtler. It works with the guy with the mustache because I could feel the "red" on the cheeks and nose.
you're right about the red cheeks, didn't noticed when doing it
here i tried inking again
left is with manga studio (then added some blur)
right is photoshop
clearly manga studio is better suited for inking (or illust studio wich is similar)
another location study
and ssg study: clothes
You're really good at drawing cloth. Those pants (25 january) are wonderful !
On the first pages of this sketchbook, you leave out most of the clothing details, for example in that comic "rêves écologiques". 2009 versus 2012: improvement.
Heey Zou! =) Great work on your life drawings, they have a very good feel to them =) Me likey very muchy! =) Some feedback, Kahla's left hand seems a bit small in comparing it to her other hand. And that's about all I can see atm.. must say your works are looking really good atm. I wish you luck finding a children's book style that you like =) Good luck with your studies for that =)
awesome job on the clothing/drapery studies. location studies are looking nice, too!
the landscape sketches are great...very nice
Locations studies look very good, especially last one where I can feel space between trees. Love your street drawing from previous page and wish I could draw so great faces. A lot of valuable studies here.
HederaHiberna: thanks for going through the sb and your kind words
Kungfoowiz: thanks bro , glad to see u back, i missed you.
WRappiii: thanks, thanks
blu01: i'm glad you like them, wish you luck in your future drawings.
more clothes, i've done the trousers, time to go up. next time more woman clothes perhaps.
.gif files are cute.BTW,your ID (pronunciation) in Chinese mean "walk/go",hope you go further and get more on you way.
maolaosan: thanks for the translation, i chose it randomly (zou and loomis), happy it mean something nice in chinese
some clothes and animal study
and i'm planning to do some comic panel to propose for children magazine
the first two panels inked
gosh i hate flat coloring, i can't stand filling those colors
Great updates love your forest studies, you are definitely refining your technique.
The inked pages for the childrens magazine are great, I'm going to have to try this Manga Studio too The only crit I have is the 'middle panel' of the last page it looks like her right thumb is dislocated. Good luck with the colouring and getting the gig
Kungfoowiz: thanks, i hope too
Marian Rowling: thank you so much, you made my day
Angel Intheuk: thanks for the crit. yes i forgot that my own thumb seems like that (i still use it as ref)
some animal studies
and a wip of children illustration
Wow, zou! You are working hard on that comic. I love the shots you have there. Great perspective work, too. Good luck on that.
Nice animal studies. It seems you had a hard time on the wolf. Maybe it's the fur that made it difficult hehe. Keep it up though!
Love your colors and line work. Your characters feel so much alive.

I would really love some honest critiques and improvements suggestions
Renewed Study - I'm drawing again!!
To the extent that tree studies can be sexy, yours are.
Really good studies throughout this page, it's very inspirational!
Your comic work looks good too. For the character, I feel her face doesn't always feel quite right. I'm having a hard time putting my finger on it, but for instance in the second to last frame you posted, I think there's something with the eyes. Maybe they are a little misaligned or something. Or, since no one else have said anything, maybe it's just me
I think it can also be a bit hard to tell when she is surprised or not, because her eyes are always so wide open, and her eyebrows are always so raised. But maybe she's surprised all the time?
Those faces from last page are fantastic! The caricaturization seems to work really well, as you can quickly figure out the defining shapes. I've also been doing this type of sketching, and yours seem like actual people to me.
Good clothing studies, very clean! Post #798 shows some nice clothing action. Those first 2 girls are great, the figures are really accurate too. I too am noticing some problems with the eyes, notably in the comic. Perhaps its because the speculars/highlights seem to come from different directions. Like in the very last face of post #804. You should also try moving the pupils around for a better result. It's digital after all!
The animal studies are fantastic, notably the dog in #802. Some great gesture work.
brilliant! love your sketches, and your enviro studies are really nice! ( al the other studies as well btw) I also really like your lines and the portait at the top of the page, keep posting!

Dizon: dizon for the encouraging words. i didn't made attention while drawing that wolf, wich sometimes gives good results and pther not :p
tobbA: thanks duwde
SaiVix: thanks for the words though i feel i'm doing very baaaad
Hai: you put your finger on something i was not satisfied with the drawing of that girl and you pointed an awesome stuff, she has always the same bad drawn expression ! i'm gonna change it a bit.
Anthis: thanks fior the good crit i feel so stupid with those eyes, u just made a flip horizontal with the other eyes without correcting the highlight.
-D_art-: thanks u mate
i'm not satisfied with the drawing, the inking or the colors but i'm still doing it, thinking i must finish something and begin somewhere.
