Thanks man, that's great to hear! You're right, most of these are not even close to finish. When I make my next folio, I'll have to polish everything twice or it'll still be rough. Detailing is just so tedious D: The part when the idea is there and you have to sculpt the major forms out is what I love the most, so when it's just a study I usually stop right after that... Seems like I'll have to get really good at making nice marks & brushstrokes to make up for the skipped detailing phase :D

Haha, I have the exact same problem!  Grin  To take it to the next level, I like to have music, or more preferably, some type of talk on youtube, going on in the background so that I can keep focused, yet at the same time I don't get bored.

Also--  You were the one who recommended Scott Robertson, right? Grin
Aye, he's the best.
mostly arms
Woah dude, lines are tight, I'd love to see some rough gestures of yours!

Keep up the good work! Lots to learn form your sketchbook :)
First update in 2016 :D didnt post for a long time, so here's a bunch. I started a personal project some time ago; these pencil sketches are sort of the pre-production for that. the ones with a little "x" next to them will be re-drawn in digital for fixing mistakes, streamlining, coloring and general polishing. The project will be a major part of my new folio so i'll make sure they look nice.
Oh and I think I forgot to post these, too :D
Awesome designs man love it.
Beastly work Jan. Some really fantastic design and shape language and ideas. Keep it uuuuuuuup!
thanks guys :3
Oh man! I just watch the whole thread! I really dig you linework! Loving the arm studies too!
Thanks Laco!
Here's a little fanart WIP thingie inbetween all the design madness to keep me sane
Nice design work. I love all the design.

About your last WIP, Awesome perspective but I have the feeling it´s a bit off on the guy. It feels like he wants to sit up, but I have the feeling is leaning slightly forward. I think his back is ok, but that the head is shifted forward. Maybe it helps :)
heh, thanks :D also, it's a girl :D (motoko kusanagi from gits)
Neat designs & linework Jan :)
are you using mech pencils?
Hey Prabu, thanks! yeah i'm using a mech pencil at the moment but my main reason for it is that i dont want to deal with all that garbage on my table when i'm sharpening a wooden one...
