Hi, apa khabar, study tangan je, mana badan ? Haha, tapi saya pula study badan je....
I like your sketchy drawing. Especially those horse. But overall very nice. Keep posting !
I think overall you could do with fewer lines in your sketches. Try to deliberately draw the line in the image or reference you are using, that way you will get better at naturally drawing anatomy...
Nice stuff in here!
looks like that hand work is paying off , there is much progress here can't wait to see more. I especialy like the pen work on the batman pieces very well done.

Heya, nice sketchbook.
I'm really impressed with the hand studies!
Judging from the Kamen Rider sketches, the Iron Man sketches, and that armored angel guy. You like to draw powered armor types, which I like. However, I also like your studies as well.

hey man. don't get discouraged with studies. in terms of getting frustrated, do some studies, and then do some finished pieces. definitely spartan camp would help, i think. keep at it man, you're getting better. take care.
purb36 thanks again for the timely tip, was getting a bit frustrated but tried out something else, plus CHOW and now going back to more studies.
FightingSeraph wow... even i didnt realise that! thanks for pointing it out, maybe there's a secret lurking powered armour urge lurking within! cheers
Max Challie thanks but still a long way to go...
brentos8 thanks, will need to study other parts of the hands and not just the palm, and come back again later, bottle neck at the moment for the wrist/ palm.

here's my first coloured CHOW thingy, thought would be a good idea to post it here for keeping track of crits & comments. need to look for threads on colour theory as well as bumskee's thread for some digital colouring tutorials, it should go parallel with the anatomy studies and all... i guess the more we learn, the more inadequacy we feel, (maybe until contentment?)... that should be motivation enough!!
GREAT SB , really love the pencils/ink sketches
(scored to an IVAN MAXIMOV Classic animated short )
sketches for chow#123
the subject and also 1st anniversary of my dad's passing, so am dedicating this effort to him.
started off with some early sketches
decided to mirror the pose so i can use my left hand as reference for the lotus finger... silly i know
some thumbs to study the composition with the various souls and also text
the translated chant from a Sanskrit scroll is also by one of his favourite calligrapher, so just nice to include that into the composition
robe done in 15 seconds with chinese brush and ink .... the monk was done in a coffee shop while waiting for my lunch appointment to turn up, 15-20 mins, hate to admit it, but it started out as a doodle, but i guess the whole CHOW thing has really gotten into me and even a coffee table doodle ended being used in photo shop to match the robes....
too busy, c&c from Ikuru made me realize my original concept of zen minimalist, the monk has got everything he needs inside of him already
didnt like the look of the feet, the new one isnt 100% satisfactory but will just hav to make do
final composition, trying to frame the thing more like a chinese scroll painting. fiddle with the lable, blood moon monk in chinese somehow sounded corny (rhyme too much with a strayed monk), so ended up with blood moon master instead, which is what normally how you would address a monk in chinese culture anyway...hope dad enjoys it as much as i did!
I really like your guyver'esque sketches and the iron man ones - your style is hot
Thank you for commenting on my CHOW entry. It was quite helpful. Ill try to focus more on the next one.
You have a pretty cool sketchbook here. your dynamics lines/anatomy are really good and you do wonders with the bic pen (?) .
The human faces are a bit too stiff still, missing a flesh feel and personality.
I also love the poses u make and those horses.
Cheers man and please if u could drop me a few more lines of comments on my sketchbook it would be really cool.
looks like youve been making some good progress, I also think that you could work on your line quality, drawing as few lines as necessary to do a drawing. Do you draw digitally cause Ive seen some people start with a crazy pencil base drawing and the put a new layer on top and draw nice neat lines then later hide the base drawing, that technique might work for you if you want to give it a try.

i had fun at CHOW, besides the personal reason i mentioned above, i was just trying to have some fun away from the studies , but now fun session is over, back to studying the anatomy!!!!
some sketches me done during a long meeting, whenever the minister or member of parliament making political statements and any other non technical people giving an emotional speech- time for me to drift away sketching on the stack of high quality 120g A4s lying on the meeting desk!!
post CHOW 123 sketches, inspired by other CHOW entries
sketches of CHOW 124, but forgotten half of the brief and find myself with too much preconceived ideas to contribute positively to the exercise, will leave it at this level.
too much fun with CHOW, cant seems to get over it, must stop and go back to study after this!!
taking the shinjuku street lolita theme to the CHOW
address some anatomy issue, trying to tuck away the contraband and hiding it with her big bum.... grew tired of the theme & pose
a more dynamic pose? again Japaneses anime's heroin favourite poses in mind, really not happy with the alien, too octopus and bloby
hey there! Excellent start to your sketch book man... very expressive poses. Perhaps a bit less crazy strokes would do you good? Or give the crazy strokes more direction and intent. right now some of the strokes don't seem to be helping much besides deaden the image a bit. You should check out Lukias sb. He does some really crazy pencil strokes but it feels really good because he's putting perhaps a bit more purpose in them(?)
either way keep it up dude. You'll be great in no time : )
Damn, alot of these designs are really cool!
As far as crits go, I think some female portrait studies and female nude studies would totally benefit you. Take special attention to the neck, hips and breasts.
That monk piece though is totally awesome, I love the mixing of inks and pencils, it really keeps a nice rhythm.
I see you're a big fan of Masked Rider too, it wasn't long ago when did anatomy studies using him as a reference. I see we have lots in common, I really dig those demon poses, and their muscle definitions. One thing you have that I don't is horse legs, am still having problems doing those. Whoosha!
WELL, I LOVE TO DRAW.

Hey zenichi thank you very much for the crit and the nice words on my chow entry. had no time to finish it.
You have a really cool sketchbook here. Your figures and lines are really nice. Like the way you draw with the pen. I think the sketches you did for red sonja chow are much better and more powerful and dynamic as the one you choos to take as final.
So keep up the good work nice anatomy drawings as well
See you soon!
as for the red sonja CHOW, the coloured version was in fact an earlier sketch, but it was never submit for final as it was what it was- a sketch only. the later sketches were done as a continual exploration of the character as well as better understand the female anatomy, the pencil sketches were too masculine, the pen over wasnt much improvement either, but at least it doesnt look too transves...
arrgghhh.... got to stay away from CHOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
some sketches to explore the ideas behind CHOW #125 for recording purposes...

Love the last character. The first sketch is very good. Reminds me somewhat of rich's (insane visions) old sketches.
Impressive SB!!! Love the sketches a lot!!
awesome man. the chow's will do you much good in terms of practice and challenge. your faces and expressions since post 48 are looking a LOT better, and i also like the last character drawing for the chow 125 a lot; there's a lot of expression in his pose. try to use his eyes and hands to convey that extra subtlety in his feelings. can't wait to see how you do. g'luck man, and thanks for stopping by my book.
