Pencil work for book cover for SQP publications from early last year. Yes, brief was to include some nudity though I'm not sure how well bare chests fit into the military dress code!

Cheers man! Might sound like a cliche, but it really is all about practice. I try to do some kind of drawing, painting or related research every day and have done for many years.

My prob is I have too many passions, atm I'm trying to make a steam engine wooden model boat with some friends, has to be radio controlled too. I also love to model in clay and in 3D with blender, I love to draw, and write too, I like to make cartoons and comic strips and also real artistic drawings with ball point pens and pencil mainly, I rly can't paint for shit. All i know is ur work is awesome!

Great drawing. Sir I wanted to ask you if you used ref for the clothing and the boots? Because I try to learn to make that stuff up from imagination and try to construct it from the scratch. I am kinda getting crazy with trying that. So I wanted to ask you, how you get such realistic things on the paper.

I find I can 'make up' folds etc to a certain level, but when you want to go as detailed and complex as in this illustration some kind of reference really is a must. I had a friend put on a large army shirt and took some reference photos, I dressed my maniquin (yes I have a maniquin in my studio :D) in the pants and combination of friend wearing the boots and having them on my desk as I sketched.
Burne Hogarth did a book about the theory and practice of drawing clothing called "Dynamic Wrinkles and Drapery" and its helpful for understanding how material folds. I also used to sketch shirt and pants folds in my sketchbook, along with faces when I travelled on the train - but no matter your theory and memory for these things, you cant beat some kind of reference if you really want to take it to a extremely detailed finish. I have a wardrobe full of costumes and as I said, a maniquin, just for such purposes! :D
Hope that helps and happy drawing!

Beautifully rendered. The curves and firmness of their breasts truly stand out. I will probably be chastised for it but perhaps the dress code should be altered to your specifications. That will certainly boost the number of heterosexual male recruits. Once again a marvelous piece.

Thanks so much for posting your pencil work for this. It's so incredibly helpful seeing your initial work.

It's also a little frustrting...knowing that your pencil work even kicks the hell out of our finished work. LMAO.

**shakes fist at Loopydave's greatness**

**goes back to drawing table, bent on artistic improvement**

lol.

Awesome work, as always.

Your stuff is such an inspiration.

Its funny, but lately I've been trying to loosen up my initial sketches a bit and leave some of the 'working stuff out' bit for the painting stage, but I love the initial pencil stage so much, I inevitably get carried away! Glad you like sir, and as always, appreciate you coming by!

If this is you "loose" then you need to be sacrificed to...like the pagan gods of yesterday. LMAO.

No...I hear ya. I often spend waaaaaaaaaaaay too much time in the pencil stage...when I'm really into a pic.

And thank you, sir, for being such an awesome artist, and great guy.

Much to learn from ya.

Much much much,

Thanks Erin, appreciate you saying that! Used to do a lot more traditional stuff, particularly with markers and pencils, but even though I do all my colour work on the computer nowadays, I still love the feel of pencil on paper for my prelim work. :)

Me too! I think the return to traditional is sort of coming back too. I prefer the medium myself & would love to see that & digital on an equal platform.
And I really admire someone such as yourself who is quite brilliant at both!
