that cloth texture on the first pic in your latest post gives more richness to overall character design, use it more often cool updates, keep it up!

Great self portrait! Cool SB
ok sketch update here before i start an oil painting of my sister...
first off i got a new tattoo today in memory of her, her name, and (hopefully) the correct symbol for spirit...so heres a picture of that!
heres some stuff from the sketchbook, and a head of a creature concept I may actually do a whole body for him, caus i like the head so far!
some are pencil like the creature, some have some marker in em, and alot of them are pen... enjoy!
most are really quick... cept the last one, and one page is quickkk sketches based on other artists... i know this update isnt much, but ive been neglected the book, and i havent posted any sb stuff in a while!
P.S.S.S (hahaha) these pictures dont do any of the drawings any justice.. next paycheck im gonna go buy a goooood scanner, i dont care if i spend my whole check on it!
nice tattoo !! inks look cool, moar moar moar! when youve got time that is =]
quick update with a WIP of an oil painting of my sister... when im done we are gonna raffle it off at the benefit we are having in order to raise money for her daughter (my niece)
any comments on this one would be great... I will add more WIPS and the finished painting prolly in a couple days!
~about 1 hour so far!
BTW: if anyone stops by that has pictures of roses.. I NEED references of them, because im doin a rose decoration type thing around the portrait, have to improvise because I had to take someone out of the picture and plus, itll add to the painting I think! THANK YOU!!! (u can just upload the pictures in this book)
Interesting book U got going - nice tat - hope its really what they say it is, read a funny story of people getting table, horse and other such funny things instaed of power / fire etc.
progress... sucks you cant see the real thing, workin on the hair first, then ill do her face, and then the rest of the other little doodads, this picture doesnt do any justice, at least imo the hair is turning out great, i am greatly suprised its coming out good so far, only my 3rd oil painting!!!
this is really fantastic. great stuff
Markus, i would like to see you push your line confidence it could really help you improve your drawings. Looking at this page of drawings I can see you repeat your self a lot, The same generic eyes, and heads in 3/4th view change it up and draw heads in every direction, and angle. Really push your self, challenge your knowledge of human anatomy. Make people fight, interact with each other. Have fun over all, keep at it man.
ive come along way so far...heres something old for everyone to reference, btw this is my old account! beeen a while since i logged on it!!
this is purely just a little bump in my book for myself... i want to recognize how far ive come, and the next post with new art will SHINE against this art!!! i promise!

Markus, you have allot of nice artwork here, your self-portrait turned out great, the color and the lighting work well.
really cool stuff in here, mate! the main problems I see in your paintings are your colors and your edges. try to keep your value patterns clean and simple, your values quite often tend to get a bit muddy and blurr into each other, what makes the rendering quite hard to read.
The "edge-problem" goes kinda together with your values. you seem to blend your colors and values the same way over and over again, try to vary the quality of your edges from "hard edge" to "blurred" edge. Right now your are almost only using this "middle,hard" edge to blend your stuff, exept your more experimental stuff.
Ok, I understand that I am not really posting any finished work lately, but lately I have been finishing stuff, however its all in my real sketchbook, and lack of scanner, im really too lazy to take pictures (they look horrible anyways) So tonight after work, I will look for my scanner and try and find the cables... so you will have a traditional update VERY soon. Also I am starting a project, I am not discussing details yet, but I have started a few things for it already. Here is one little thing for the project I am working on now, I understand that there are 2 drawings, and both are unfinished, I am doing this nowadays in order to keep me interested. there will most likely be a 3rd head like these other 2, which I havent started yet, however I plan on finished all 3 by the time I go to sleep tonight, (mostly working on it after work) Hope you enjoy my art from this point foreward because I will be drawing intenstly, and I truely hope it pays off. Comments and crits always welcomed!!!
On a side note, I noticed I dont reply much, after this post any comments and/or critiques WILL be answered, sorry for being soo damn lazy. ( turning point in my life!!! )
ok heres an update on the heads, taking me longer than I thought and theres alot I dont like about em, but im just gonna finish em anyways just for the reason of finishing what i start. next art i do i will limit myself to a time and see how finished i can get it to look within that time limit.
since I wasnt liking what was going on with them heads, i started to put a bunch of textures in, and workin with photoshop as my friend for a change... wasnt sure what was going to happen, im not used to using textures and whatnot, but I really think it was a turning point in my digital art career! Of course not all my art is gonna have textures, and the ones that do prolly wont have this much, but I feel IMO that it looke 10x better than before. I still have alot of work to do to the face, ive hardly touched it,but I figure since I draw so many faces, it would be the easiest for me to finish, so hopefully by the end of today, I will have this face finished at least. BTW, I will also be updating with some traditional work, and possibly digital sketches later.... just really want to focus on this feller for now! FEEDBACK WELCOMED!!! CHEERS!
heres some traditional work, gonna work that digi more later, but my girls comin over now so i gotta halt the drawing! but heres a little sketch dump... feedback would be nice once in a while
Heres some sketchbook stuff, and a quick open canvas sketch ... been a while since i drew in my sketchbook... it felt GREAT, gonna try to keep it up.
I REALLY need to get my scanner HOOKED up, im sick of this camera shit.. batteries... horrible pictures.. etc.
Heres a drawing I did a while ago, some monster boxer... I cropped it because I rushed the legs and they look horrible!
That WIP looks niiiice. I really like the texture on the suit. I suppose you're working on those final details. It could be nice to see some body attached to your design as well.
Pretty cool sketchbook!
got my new computer, set up for just art, and its a sweet one haha, bought a scanner and printer too... so heres some scans of pics i already posted but, i wanted to give them a proper post...im entering a contest too.. .so as soon as im done with the art for that, im going to finish those digi concepts

the tiger one is pretty sweet,but it got a tadbit messy. Awesome though!
Nice with the lines and shapes here:

Im liking this a lot too
anyways post moarrrr talk to you soon!
nothin new here, just postin some more art is all... after this post the art will be new, just wanted to get this outta the way...
yea the skull is floating... did it 2 years ago, and didnt really notice it at the time
thought you guys might like this... just wish the newer one was finished, but i started it last year around the time i was lazy.. lol
I was just gonna say that your progress just keeps coming steadily, and that I can see it in this SB, and man, that Final Fantasy fanart just explains what I was about to say.
Keep it up, huge potential here!
Lakka: Thanks! I have a hard time seeing my progress, until I measure up things like a year apart.. But once I do, im really excited... Still... I need to start doing studies again, anatomy especially... I still feel really lazy, so once I get on the ball with that, ill feel better.
well heres just a lil update on the art for the contest im entering... its a closeup of my niece..
