dude your aug. 19th update was awesome... i like the way form came out.. very nice.. its like... "where have i been all this time?". you are becoming a superstar in lighting speed... its amazing what your doing with these last few.. those faces are dope.. especially the dude with his septum pierced.. great expression.. keep it up!!!
Stong posts man, love the expressions. I hope you don't mind; Keep an eye out for ear placement, some seem a bit low. Lovn this stuff
Nice! Wheee - expressions! hehe, looks like you're having fun dude. Studying hands, myself...*mutter mutter mutter stupid hands mutter mutter mutter*...Beautiful. Wow, a whole sketchbook devoted to expressions...how big is it? And don't say "A5" or whatever, 'cause I have no idea what that means. Speak American! j/k! Never mind, it doesn't matter - point is you're doing it, so wtg!
*Edit* And I jumped the line again! Sorry dude - CA is having server issues again! *Edit*
xephon, thanks dude
smuli, hehe thanks man
OBX, thanks man
vigostar, glad you like it man. trying to get better, aren't we all? cheers mate
update, scribbles from my sketch book
thumbnails... composition? gotta look into landscape and stuff more I guess..and some faces too.
Some sketch I did at art gallery of NSW with Form, there was a small concert..so some quickies..
Started a sketchbook, I am calling it "book of expressions" hehe going to do face studies there and all in pencil.. first four pages... some work some dont... all photo refed, getting used to pencil. between 10~15mins each.. didn't want to get too into fine rendering...
Some PS doodle...
your sketchbook is beautiful, i love your linework
i see you really taking off with your artwork min.. glad to see it... those thumbs are very nice... keep it up.. no crits..
Hey bumsman ! Very cool head studies you did up top...really great lighting on all them, and I also especially like the dude with the septum ring piercing. He looks like a real nutter! Did you look at any reference for the lighting for those? Great job either way...
I like the scribble with the gasmask chick - she's hot in a wierd way, or maybe I'm the wierd one. It's cool to finally see someone put a gasmask in a picture in a different context..because even if it has been done a million times...gasmasks are still kinda cool.
The thumbnails are looking sweet too. I should be doing more of those. The thumbnails with the faces are particularly interesting. I think it's really cooll that you are not only studying faces, but how the placement of the head can change the look of the picture .
i like those ps doodles too...that guy with the small glasses/goggles would look cool with the top guy's body (with the giant claw) ...you can call him 'Claw Man' ! That's for free.
Great stuff man...you know I'll be back for mo mo mo
Cool! Spectacular faces 'n expressions!
tokidokizenzen, thanks man and for the crit on the ear.. is it really a bit low?? hmm
Tei, thanks heaps, it's A4! that's..hmm. I think 9x12.. I think in inches not sure.. Yeah CA's hickup..really funny hehe..
vigostar, thanks dude!! appreciate it
Pencilator, hey!! thanks for dropping by
loomer, no refs for those light study ones.. thanks man
xephon, thanks dude
Dead Road 7, CCAD?? what's that? Thanks for the kind words.

Self-improvement is masturbation, Self-destruction on the other hand....
holy crap! lol amazing "doodles" as you called them; must say I love the way you do faces, such great emotion in all of them. this thread is always good for inspiration so you can bet I'll be watching it hehe. keep it up!
man. min... yur flying away frm us here... really like leaps and bounds.. you have improved so much in the small amount of time you've been on these boards.. great!!!
Wow - you've been busy man. That last batch all looks awesome.
Your work is getting even more solid and fleshed out than before
Really starting to get some serious dimension to your characters
That one swordsman in profile at first glance looks like he has a giant erection!
vigostar, yeah I must admit CA has pushed me constantly..to get off my lazy ass.. that's half the trouble I think.
rodrigo!, hehe.. well maybe next monday??
Fellah. yo, thanks man.. how are your stuff going with the gallery and all??
liam.c thanks dude, your work is stunning.. thought I mention that hehe
LOOOOOOmer, dude I swear you have twisted mind.. but now that you mentioned it I can't help picturing it. hehehe thanks for compliment.
Small update..... my scribbles on my tiny ass A5...sketchbook.. Oh yeah I was drawing on the train yesterday and the lady sitting next to me.. taps me on the shoulder and goes "wow you draw really well.." and I didn't know what to say so I sat there...I am so bad at taking compliments.. hmmm then we went a little about how she can't draw at all..and I smiled...and that was it.. what would you guys say??? I wanted to say "WHAT!?!? lady, I am shite.. you have to go to conceptart.org and see the true masters, OK!?!?! w-w-w-.-..." but the train was pretty packed so...I kept quite..
some drawings at a pub last weekend with friends, they couldn't quite understand why I was drawing though..
scribbles on the train... thought I try out some hand action.. I am still waiting for bridgman's book on hands.. hmm wonder when it's going to arrive..
drawing at wynyard station waiting for someone.. nice tree...
had reference for these, just studying values... rubber was handy.. I think I lost the plot on the second one though.. hmm..
man oh man, you ARE really good at drawing bumskee lol I hear ya on compliments though, sometimes the only thing you can do is smile and say thanks.. anyway amazing little studies you've got here; love the way you do your hatching as well as the general look to them all.
keep it up!
Yeah dude, sooner or later you're going to have to face the fact that you ARE good! Compliments are hard (tell me about it!!) but the only thing to do is smile and say Thank you! They (we!) mean it sincerely, and it should be taken as such. We're not trying to bs you, kiss your patootie, give you false compliments or whatever - we mean it!!!
And, as long as you DO remember that there are tons of people better than you while still being confident of what you can do, you can be the artist that has no false modesty, AND is confident. Tough line to walk! I'm only starting to get confident...and my new fear is that I'll get arrogant! You'll help me not to, right?
You will never get arrogant, Tei - you are just to nice and hardworking for that. So is bummy. And yes time for him to realize he is very good! There will always be artist better that one self - even the great ones feel that way - its the game and the drive isnt it? Seeing good shit and saying:I wanna learn that! The road is easy to see ahead of you bumskee!
