yeah well I guess the main "fault" would be that each finger is different; it doesnt look like theyre part of the same hand

I don't like erasers : / Hardly ever use them. Smudgy little things. But yes, maybe you're right. The portrait was a 7 minute sketch on a train, though..

You could have just not drawn those parts then ;)

Well, thanks for taking the time to add critiques to my posts :)

what are you doing up this late!? Its 2:30 AM in Belgium!

Tastee morsels!.. I really enjoyed my LURK thru your work.. every piece was more delicious than the last
all I can say is KEEP GOING like this NEVER let anyone tell you to change.. your work has flair.. style and whimsical flavor...

impossible to critique.. so saturated with style anything "constructive' would just be an opinion.

ever try doing some animation?

Oh, thank you! You.. uh.. You're pretty damn awesome yourself! :D Cool to get such a positive comment from you.
And yes, I've actually studied Animation for the past 3 and a half years :D I'm doing my Master's now. Maybe it shows somehow?

BAH!! dangit!.. I should have looked at your Deviant link.. duhhh... hahahah! it does show..

something else I failed to mention.. it is abundantly apparent that your anatomical knowledge is rock solid.. and you're fantastic at rendering clothing and fabric as well.. (thinking of the pic with the three girls.. partial sketch and partial finished ink)

PLEASE do some animation and submit it. ( or at least a comic...)

Oh, but my anatomical knowledge could still use some work.. I still struggle with legs and their attachement to feet, and I honestly suck at drawing male hips. But thank you :D We all have our 'problem-area's' I think.. And yeah, I like drawing fabric.

Well, I've been trying to put some of my animation in .swf format, since I animate by hand and on paper and they're mostly .avi's now. Also, I don't know how to make a loading bar and a button in flash, or even how to adjust the animation dimentions.. So I just don't know how to get something that looks decent. I used to animate in flash but I completely forgot how to.. I really want to put something online, but uh.. I can't. Not yet, anyway.
Comics are easier :p

So... I was uh, sitting on the toilet, reading my D&D Player's Handbook, when I stumbled onto the Druid again and immediatly thought of a Gnoll. I always had a soft spot for hairy humanoids and Gnolls are a good combination of awesomely strong and wild, and a little klutzy and awkward.
Druids are just mostly awesome.
So here, a Gnoll Druid.

I want to colour it in or at least shade it.. but don't know how yet.

Okay, so I chose to actually do something with my Gnoll druid. I thought It wouldn't hurt if I posted a WIP.. so here is a tiny little foretaste.

I like seeing the development too, so I'm posting another wip, but only a part, otherwise the details are completely lost.
This is the first time I ever shaded and coloured something this way.. And it's taking a hellovalotta time. And I don't even know if I'm doing it right, argh. But so far I'm relatively satisfied... It's far from finished, though. Any possible (practical) help would be appreciated.
I'm planning on using colours too, eventually.

Okay, it's been a serious while since I've been here (for my doing.. which is about 10 days), but I've been le busy. Anyway, I'm kind of here to update for the sake of updating. I haven't had time to work on my lovely Gnoll, but there might be an update this weekend..
So, here! A nice and pretty lady that had the sad misfortune to be born in the middle ages with a psychological problem. Luckily the good people of the mental institution have kindly taken care of her, as you can see.

Oh hey, fresh new sketch again. I felt like drawing one of those adverture-type girls. You know, the ones with a lot of belts and pouches and a gun only a trained weightlifter could use though she has the arms of a fitnesschick, often encountered in a difficult situation in which she's hardly holding ground, and then the hero (you, if you're playing a game) comes in to save her, but instead of thanking him she goes "I can take care of myself" and punches him in the face, swears (because she's totally hardcore and a strong female figure) and then they both still go in the same direction after a little more squabbling.
You know, that kind.

But she actually turned out a little more original than that.
I hope.

Hehe, a lot of people have said that about that drawing. And thanks.

I miss working with ink.. I should buy a new bottle sometime. Tiny drawing from a few months ago.. I was planning to make a comic in this style.
But then I didn't.

I am the master of unfinished work! Again, quick sketch of a part of a comic series I was working on. The words roughly translate to "It's a mess. It's a mess, that head. That head of mine."
It's a story applied to the messed up situation very different people are in, sort of a mental overlapping monologue of being-slightly-fucked-up.

.. Jesus fucking assfuck. I am very tired, very frustrated and very disappointed in myself. I best leave the full rant for in my blog or something, but for a tiny taste: For the umpteenth time I have tried to become a smooth and clean drawing that resembles or is a vector drawing (a fucking easy drawing at that) and I've failed horribly. I started out in Photoshop, then went over to Flash, then went over to Illustrater and now I went over to bed and am trying my best not to bite my toungue too hard.

Long story short, I could just really use some advice or maybe a link to a good tutorial for either drawing in Flash MX (the biggest problem there was with the sketch I imported) or Adobe Illustrator CS (the biggest problem there was how the brush worked, wtf was that) or maybe even Adobe Photoshop CS. The drawing I include should become the underlying drawing over which I'll draw the clean version.
The FFFUUUU is added for better mood setting. Honestly, the only thing I want is the shit that's now coloured black, to be redrawn in a solid, clean, full black drawing. I don't even care about the background. I can't understand how something like that could be so difficult..

Anyway, thanks in advance.

Your art is good. But the thing that is keeping it from being better is your shading. Instead of hatching try differnet techniques...because your hatching is...eh
