update with today's sketch
It may be me, dunno, but the head looks a bit small though.Originally Posted by Obi-one
One thing you have now is a lot more understanding of eprspective. Your first sketches sometimes looked too 2d qhen they needed volume and shape. Now they look far better and the lines are much more confident(this is one element I am working on )
Paralax > thank you for your comment. Yes the head is a little bit small. I was at the top of my paper .
I'm trying to do figures in different poses. No ref used.
here's a concept for today. Colours were looking better on my other sceen.
Here's something I've done for the daily sketch group.
DSG 831: Fantasy Scene: FIGURE(S) STANDING BEFORE THE DRAGONHEAD-SHAPED ENTRY-WAY
two speed paints done with Open Canvas.
first one in 45 min
second one in 1h
long time without update.
Don't have lot of time for drawing recently, but now I'm going to find more.
the next two have been drawn directly with a ink pen. realy good practise, because I wasn't able to erase.
two colored ones:
and a last one :
more to come soon
a new bunch of sketchs
an old one (four month old)
inspired by the book Harry Potter
a mix of different animals
polar bear studies
and a speedy
This is some awesome stuff dude but there is one thing that keeps nagging at me. The legs, on alot of the pieces you've got here the legs seem a bit short, I mean obviously it's intentional on some of them but sometimes it just seems out of proportion. Other than that fantastic stuff, look forward to seeing more.

Lazy Gun > Thanks for your comment. I know legs are realy often the weakest parts of my drawings.
been a long time without posting anything, but there's a few new ones.
Your work is great and displays a lot of imagination ( and that's not a euphemism!)
The skeletal robot-esque head is a fabulous design ( Gen. Grevious as he should have been?)
The ogre with bark paldrons...are you sure that's non ref ?
The artillery mech from October post...looks functional and well constructed.
Rocking skull dungeon concept.
Burgeoning professionalism evident in all of these, and most importantly they do what good concept art should...not to be glossy designs or figures with edgy poses but working designs that inspire creativity in others.
Your strongest human figures are the ones where you've economized the lines and constructed the forms geometrically, like the cloaked figure from yesterday's post. I find emphasizing the geometry of even curved forms helps heighten the illusion of volume. The best way to tackle human eyes is economy and suggestion, especially when working with small scale sketches and drawings. I like to emphasize the folds of skin of the eyelids and exagerate the recession of the eye in the orbital of the skull, and create as much contrast between the light and dark values as possible while keeping everything in proportion. With eyes, full figures and small working surfaces, less is more.
hey, some very nice images.
i like the dark munch with the sword most, but good work. keep going
Finally an update
don't really have time for drawing in the past months, but I'll have more soon.
here's a bunch of sketchs
my first acrylic painting (pld: ). And I'm quite happy with it. It could be better, but I've learn a lot in doing this one.

Hope you like
today a sketch I did yesterday.
TheGnoll > Thanks for your comment, and yes, I'm going to try to keep posting.
For today, one doodle in PS to practice drawing and coloring. I have a hard time drawing in PS. I prefer drawing on paper.
And few quick concept.
hope you like.
Wow, what an improvement since the start. Excellent imagination stuff. i agree with the legs being iffy in the earlier posts, but your definately been listening to the crits and you are really nailing the anatomy lately. Really like some of these, good inspiration.. keep up the good work ;-)
I like this SB. You have improved loads since it started. I dig the dragon head and the leather-clad figure in #52. It's terrific how much you've learned on your own; now I think you should start practicing from reference, such as photos and anatomy books. Some anatomy studies would help you improve greatly and take your work to a new level. Great character designs!
Watch out for Piranhas
RandAlThor > Thanks. Yes I think the legs were really the first part of my work I needed to fix.
Chris Noeth > Thanks
Piranha Clan > Thanks. I know I should practice from references, but I usually start drawing quickly when I have something in mind, and not trying to find reference and then draw.
For today, an sketch done for the COW 81: Yellow BloodSucker
my entry for this week COW : Yellow Bloodsucker
and a hunter concept.
hope you like
