Exclamation DANKA_Big Sketchbook_updated December 16 2009

Hi all!!!
I want to show you some of my drawings,from my old and my new sketchbooks.
I've scanned the pages I like most.
Some are from photos, some from real life...someone invented...
And I'll post some of my digital sketch as well.
I use Photopaint and a Wacom tablet for digital paint.
I hope to update this sketchbook frequently...

Only old man and bikini girl are from refs

Only Batman is not from references... :-)

No refs for those pages

I use a real life references for the couple on the bench, and for the man with
moustache on right page

I used some photo reference of military veicle for the details in the sketches on the right

...some digitals...
all the digitals sketches in that pages here are from photoreferences with a little bit interpretation.

Bye bye!

oh I completely love your sketching... I hope to reach that kind of cleanliness in my drawing (I am a messy sketcher :P always trying to improve on my lines)

The digital is also quite nice, though I like the sketches more... they somehow feel more real to me. Can't explain.

I'll be looking forward to more

wooow, absolute lovley! The sketches are super! But why do you use motion blur on your colored images?
Old 06 June 2008   #4
Nice, looks like a quality thread! Likewise, the sketches are great! I think if you cleaned up just a tad, you could create some really stunning work, the digital sketches are really good as well, the blur adds another effect I havn't seen in many artists work, it's kind of a unique touch and gives the picture a little extra something, but it may be a little too strong. Good work, looking forward to some future updates.

The blur effect it's due to a soften edged brush!

your traditional sketches are stunning, you are able to capture details and life in a really nice way...so clean and expressive
I felt in love for the castle scketches, you captured such a strong perspective there!
Digital sketches also are good, they reveal your painting attitudes...
btw, great! Hope to see more from you (and to learn from you ^^)
