Race against the time

Or simply, trying to squeeze another post into the last hours of 2012.

Just some really really quick colored sketches.
And My wife will kill me, because I promised to bake some bread rolls before she comes back, and she is coming back reel soon.
Soo, off to do some speedbaking now,

here are sketchies,

Cheers,

Milenko

And ah yes, I forgot,

Happy New Year,

All the best to everyone :)

Another shameful gap...

Man, it has been ages since the last post.
Sometimes, shit happens like that.
Well, I have an excuse, and a bad one.
For some reason, I felt completely spent after my teaching gig, and did not feel any urge to touch pencil for month(s).
Sure I did my shitty little doodles every now and then, and I did immerse myself into the next StrangeLoop project, but beyond that, every time I would try to dedicate a few hours and do some half decent sketch or whatnot, I would fiddle a bit, spend a lot of time staring at what I did, noticing all of the mistakes then gently pressing "do not save" button and moving onto something completely irrelevant and time wasting.
I did discover some amazing and inspiring manga/manhwa Masterpieces ( both being something I have been avoiding all my life, for which I have no excuse) and I have thoroughly enjoyed and hopefully learned something about craftsmanship and working discipline from these heroes of fucking storytelling. For no particular reason, I will mention a few that (even though I approached reading them reluctantly) blew me away and made me feel miserable at the same time.
So here we go, in no particular order:
Berserk
Sun Ken Rock
PeaceMaker
Chunchu
Feng Shen Ji

And many more, but these are the ones I remember off the top of my head.
Anyhow, lately, I have been managing to stay a little longer with my sketchy pieces, so here are few I managed to take any distance towards finishing (and decided to save).
From now on, I intend to try and do a bit of warm-up sketching every morning, before I get cranking on the daily work, and I intend to share more often, but I have made promises in the past that I did not honor.
So, here is a few sketches, and please do not judge too harshly, I feel like I am learning to draw all again, as if I forgot all I knew.
Cheers to all,

Milenko
