Hey, this wasn't porn...
Great studies though. Your linework has a good looseness to it. Keep it coming.
Hey, twas nice meeting you the other day Sean. You have good drawing skills man! Your hatching work isn't bad as well but you could probably play around with lighting more. Maybe you can request some lighting in life drawing?
For digital painting, you could create an adjustment layer that desaturates the whole image and switch it on and off to keep check on the values and lighting. If it works in simple monotones, any colours can work on it.
rob: yeh cheers- the first sketches here are actually the recent ones in terms of when i did them. those round faces were the first sketches i did, i really like the faces but i just dont think they suit him...
quickenobi: thats possibly the best compliment u can give someone drawing from life. thanks
max challie: im glad u liked it. thats a massiv compliment also
rotor: will do
bendragon: dont go to life drawing classes. the stuff in this sketchbook is friends or girlfriends.... and ill be keeping those words in mind when i try a colour illus on ps. thanx
not actually a recent sketch... from round bout october, but i just wanted it up here because i thought it caught a sweet moment where a friend was dozing off during class
Being so high is sometimes a fuzzy mess
Look really great!!!
fran: cheers, and thanks for all the pointers uve given me
not particularly proud of th first two. trying to draw with a normal pencil like i would with a mechanical one, it aint working. results are a lot more satisfying when i use the normal pencil to lay tone instead of line, like the bearded guy in the second pic. third picture is a doodle from class, had a lot of fun with the graphic pattern things
that last sketch is awesome mate, great textures, nice work. your pencil line drawings are improving unnervingly fast, top stuff on that front. yep, just that really.

wookiedabo: thanks for stopping by again man
just some splashing around with ink and gouache. not proud of these drawings at all i think getting high a lot is fucking up my line quality and accuracy. will try slow down and try to do this, not just scribble and pretend its good enuf
I like the colour on the woman one ..
quikenobi- i feel we should be on first name terms, you pop by here so often. its appreciated
sum more scribbles, i hope u can tell in the last one that im getting back into the hang of linework. its flowing better. i love the picture of the frail little old lady next to the MASSIVE guy on the train. just one of those endearing moments that stick in ur head.
latest batch are great man, really confident lines, keep them long like this. have you ever tried mixing the mechanical with the wooden pencil? its a pain to switch pencils but i find it really easy to lay out quick values with decent linework that way.
THis last update is really nice.. you're getting a really good linework. the cat is almost alive I just miss some line weighting on the guy in the cap..
My name is Quike, btw
holy shiiiiiit you'ce improved gazillions since my last visit, big respect!
that cat looks just like mine
wonder if the tube people give you any reactions while beign drawn
kent williams managed to make drawings like these work eve with a very subtle line weight variation, you should try alternative way of giving them tones (inks?washes?) kinda like you did in post 283 but in the figures instead of around them.
Again, kudos for the huge improvement, don't even think of slowing down!
quike: thanx- yeah i know line weighting is a bit of a problem on my mechanical pencil ones. tried to compensate by using two different leads but it could be a pushed a little more. ill bear that in mind
thegnoll: its interesting. some get nervous and leave, some get nervous and stop moving (like a rabbit trying not to get eaten) , some love it and pose! most dont notice, theyre too wrapped up in thier little books/gadgets... i know i need to be a bit more experimental- those hints of colour earlier are me dipping my foot in the water. ill definately try something else soon though the sardine box nature of the tube makes it hard to get out some more interesting media like paints. all painting is done retrospectively usually. and thanks, i dont plan to slow down..
OK lads and ladies. first off a few extra bits and bobs from the tube- tim ive been trying the pencil swap u suggested, its having decent results but i think i need to practise a bit more to nail it. cheers.
the last three pics are draft pages for a graphic novel ive been commissioned to do. the last pic shows the style that it'll be inked in..... feedback wuld be appreciated
Alright Sean? I thought I'd come in here and check up on you, imagine my surpise to see you so busy! I think it's great you've been doing studies on the tube, I personally can't get over the aspect of sketching other people who don't know I'm sketching them. At anyrate, you should get some of your paintings in here.
Really great, you're getting the grip on line weight
Loving the life drawing sketches as always, your use of line is quite wonderful.
also i like the comic, how's that going?
good luck for bristol.
yes. happy now?
james: ill be getting my paintings in here soon for a pre-uni interview online portfolio review
quike: thank you.....!!!
dstrax: its a double edged sword isnt it. because it gives you really confident lines and sketching skills but you tend not to produce any outstanding stuff that took a long time...
jim: ok more colour. but its hard to bring a lot of colour onto the tube on weekday mornings when im half asleep and the tube is packed tight. the comics going well im redoing the first page, looking sexy. very happy
just keeping the ball rolling. slowing down a bit in the SB cos im sorting out uni folio rubbish XXXX
Ders no porn here!!!!Nice sketches tho man!
