sketchblog sketchdump 6 by loish sketchblog sketchdump 6 by loish
dang, i've been so inactive here on dA! i've been doing a lot of freelance work lately, not all of which i can share with the world at this moment sadly (which is heartbreaking because it's some of the best i've ever made!). whenever i get a chance i try to squeeze in a rough sketch here or there, just to be able to draw non-work-related things. here's some of the stuff i posted in the last months for those who don't follow my sketchblog ! this batch includes some environment doodles from a california vacation and my jogging route here in utrecht, as well as some drawings referenced from old family photos.

all sketches drawn in photoshop cs5 with a cintiq 24HD. for more info on my artwork please visit loish.deviantart.com/journal/6…

Do you, at least, have a link or keywords for the freelance projects you mention? Something we can eventually check later.

nope! one of the projects was art for a tv commercial that has been put on hold, another was for a triple A game that has not been announced yet and is still in development, and another is for a toy company that keeps its projects very confidential until release (which probably won't be until 2016). trust me, if i could say more about what i've been working on, i would have shared it with everyone already!

I see..
Thanks for the precision.
BTW I've watched your youtube interview, the way you managed your artistic profile is clever. Its unfortunate that you are already injuried by overworking.
I recovered from a similar experience two years ago involving one of my favorited sport..badminton. I progressed a lot in a short period of time with self-learning method during a summer but by neglecting the recuperation phase I ruined my plan to enjoy my new level.

I considered resting as fully part of the "active" phase in order to give it the same commitment.

how unfortunate :( rest is definitely one of the most important aspects of being able to maintain any kind of repetitive-arm-movement activity. especially in the art world, it's seen as a positive thing to work constantly and give everything 200% commitment, but the 'rest' part is often overlooked :(

Note that we are pushed / programed to forget the balancing principles of resting and its goes somehow with the fear to die (+ get old, become unable to continue what passion us) but to me those controlling thoughts become powerless as I got in touch with some core truths..

I FULLY recovered from that serious injury who also preventing me to run by practicing some energetic SELF-HEALING modality.
Now I am in WAY better shape to a point I reached top of Mt Fuji with my winter travel pack.

aww, I thought those landscape paintings looked familiar, it reminds me of home back in Cali :3 the colors and shapes are so relaxing to look at, too, and it gives me pleasant nostalgia just looking at them :)

Your sketches and paintings are sheer brilliance.  You have mastered the basic technique that I see (and admire) in the art of many others here on deviantart, the lines and forms... but you have taken it a step past and made it your own.  There is an individuality to every face, a unique stamp that is a combo of the coloration and the slanting feel and the sheer intensity of the characters you draw.  I am delighted and deeply impressed!

These are absolutely fantastic!  My favorites are the old family photos and the environment practice.  I've been meaning to get in some practice painting environments like this, and seeing this just makes me want to do it all the more.

i honestly prefer digital art to anything else, if only for the vivid colors that you can quickly and easily create. if i had the time i would get back into drawing with more traditional tools, but that's something i have been saying for years now and that time never comes!
