wow, beautiful pencils
Blog: My Blog
Looks cool man, You might want to explore even more those characters, add shapes, objects, etc that actually fit to the characters you draw. kind of like making a whole library for each characters, so you know what works and what doesnt... errr just a suggestion
Keep working man
you're getting pretty prolific mate, awesome sketches.

A sketch, an outdoor study of a couple of bikes standing around and Hogarth studies. Time to get busy on the ChOW!
Ooh! I've been skeptical about Hogarth based on what I've read in these forums, but your latest studies make me see that I could learn a lot from his books. Beautiful work...loving the butterfly butts. Looking forward to the ChoW wips!
Good lordy do I heart your pencils dude, seriously, actual real life love.
No crits this time around man, just keep up the workflow.
*EDIT* Also I am curious man, wondering if you could help me with something, your pencils seem to have no underlaying initial structure, like when I draw out a character I have to map everything out first bridgeman style i.e box for head, upper torso, lower torso etc. You seem to just go for it and it turns out fine?is this right or are your initial lines just REALLY faint?

Man I love you
AM totally stalking you from now on and ofcourse buggin ya all the time!
Sweettttttttttt ass pencil drawings and killer rendering
I love all them designs and like daniol said try explorin them a bit more
keep at it boi!
badass updates sir! Those hogarth studies are lookin' good, and I totally agree that his heads look like guano, hahah. Those characters you made on your last update are super sweet too, i love the lady warrior with the Aztec obsidian blade, and the fellow with his foot up on the box looks great too.
Keep it up!
You're awesome Crits: Try to make your rendering strokes longer sometimes, to prevent getting that look that suggests lots of planes, and it stops white seeping through the cracks. Urrm also try making use of cast shadows of like arms on the body, and hair on the face... these add alot of depth. Check Algens pencils to see what i mean, he really makes the most of them. Making these really dark makes up for contrast as well sometimes. Hope this helped, keep it up
DannySketch: Haha, thanks! Actually I just go for it, maybe some faint lines that show where the limbs go, but they're usually the lines I'll use later on, just reinforcing them a bit. Never really used Bridgeman or Hogarth's method that way. Hope that answers it. (:
lilnebo: Yay, thanks!
AustenFM: Thanks a lot, man!
Shadow Stalker: Thanks! <:
SamC: Good crit, will definitely think about it more. Thanks!
archipelago: Thanks, I will!
The first one is a couple of days old. The two ChOW designs are as well. The study of Bouguereau is from today, it's taking way more time than I expected.
There won't be any updates for a week and a half, because I'm going to Italy, yay.
Nice stuff , drawings coming along great , just one little big thing , most of the characters look like you , boy or girl , i must hand it to you , that is frightening , but don't worry about that , most of the artists have that problem , i advise to study some portraits , but not in detail , just the basic lines , the shapes of the eyes , nose mouth , head ears and so on.
The last one looks awesome. Can't wait to see it finished. Overall i think you have a great charakter design

Some crazy improvement. Really good work on hitting them contrasts!
Your designs as always are killers!
When your starting, take your times with your lines and really build the whole sketch up using just line even add in where the shadow and highlights would go. After you have all the lines down choose one tone and render all the shadows and midtone areas in, make sure it's pretty light then after you've done that go over the shadows and darken them in. From there you have about 3 basic tones just add some more in-between to do some nice blending.
The other thing is your planes, thats whats missing. You need to define them some more!
Thats all though, your work will look killer when those things are worked on
Keep at it bro
love the designs and lines but slow down on the rendering!. If your gonna try and render something out take your time. Hands, your hands are looking odd in places, especially in the first one.
PS the dr.suess style warrior in the second post, makes me warm inside.

Lovely work. I especially like the woman on our left in this image. You handled her expression and the drapery around her face beautifully. One thing I'm noticing is that some of your heads get a bit wonky proportion-wise when they're at unusual perspectives, such as here. It might help to do a few head studies and throw one study down lightly in your illustrations before rendering...Keep up the great work!
I get mix message son using Hogarth or not. But you seem to taken right to it. I still have finish up my Loomis studies on heads.
She's kind of leaning funny almost off balanced. I'm digging the designs. The guy reminds me of a genie a bit.
Make a sketchbook happy, feed it a tip to improve!
