    cool updates Geert !

    one thing I noticed:
    the direction of his collarbone(s) are rather strange imo ( pointing downward )

    The non spoken rule for a male = v-shape
    and for a female = rather straight or a slightly v-shape.

    Keep it up.

    Hey Etcher,
    On the PaintStop dream.. unfortunately it was a very uncreative dream. No cool ideas. But I saw some cool creatures and monsters as I`ve been walking with the dogs this afternoon. Umm, no worries , I don`t have any halluZinations *grin*. I`ve been watching the clouds and sometimes you can see REALLY astounding things.
    "So, Moni, where’s the update?" OK *LOL*, looks like times have changed and YOU are the one who`s pushing ME now. Tit for tat. Touchè!
    For some reason -whenever I have holidays- I have LESS time. The same goes for the weekends. UNFAIR!
    I`ve been spending a lot of time on practising how to retopologize meshes. Not fun. I always thought I don`t need to focus on things like that because Zbrush is just a hobby but while I`ve been working on the horse I had some serious problems with sculpting in some areas because the mesh was a mess. I realized that a good topology is very important. Delayed brainZtorm. Kind of.
    I`ve already started painting something but it`ll take a while until I`ll post it. Today I`ll work further on Humpatiki.
    Can`t wait to see your next update. Are you working on the 3D AXL, too?

    I love what you`re doing with the stencil. Many thanks for posting!

    It was really cool to see how you made those last few sketches using the stencil. Great work as always!

    Captain Sensible: thanks again Chris! Yeah man, you gotta’ make time to try out PaintStop, looking forward to see what you come up with!

    Scottleroc: yep, finally, updates! Thanks for the awesome compliment man! Scott, I’m a bit late with this but: HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! Looking forward to seeing some works made with your “Pixologic Birthday Present”!

    schiefer: thanks for taking the time to drop me a line man! Thank you for the great compliment! I just noticed that you started your sketchbook thread on ZBC: looks like an awesome start man – better watch out not to become a ZBC addict like me!

    Lucky_1: thanks man! On the collar bone thing: I now how it should be, but I am trying out a specific silhouette-posture thing with this guy; in post 283, on the third sheet I wrote:clavicles angled down purposely and on the eight sheet I wrote:” the clavicle bones are angled down way too much, but that’s a conscious decision: this has to do with the silhouette I’m going for on this guy; I want him to be muscular, but not to broad-shouldered or athletic. We’ll see if it works out ok on the sculpt” So: we’ll see if it works! Thanks for stopping by Luc!

    Moni poroni:well, that’s a great thing about holidays: maybe less Ztime, but plenty of time to reload the (creative) batteries. Oh, before I forget: welcome to retopo heaven! (check out Eric Artman’s Wise Ones from time to time:retopo art!). Looking forward to seeing ante & post retopo pics.Yeah, 3D Axl’s in the pipeline!

    Marsyas: thank you Geoff! More stencil work to come!

    Thank you very much for the Birthday greeting Etcher, very nice of you.

    Your new piece is VERY awesome. What a great idea. Love the style.

    The PaintStop plugin is great and it is wonderful to see what everyone is coming up with. Me on the other hand I am really just happy to be using the pencil which behaves like a pencil so I have only really done some very quick sketches so far.

    Will you go back to 3d to finish this piece?

    RawSunlight: yeah… a touchpad… and that was because at the time I thought a Wacom was nothing for me (when I bought my first laptop, I thought a touchpad was nothing for me…) thanks for the awesome comment man!

    Scottleroc:Scott, I’m so glad you like the new piece! As you can see in the update below, I’m gearing up to getting this one sculpted; he’s part of Axl’s world too. Gotta’ get Axl done first though… . On PaintStop: make sure to spend some time with it on a regular basis, it’ll be so rewarding!

    Neozerahan: thanks for the great comment Zain! PaintStop is great! No worries Zain: time is on your side and you have the right attitude: you will do fine. On Axl: yes, of course I will continue him, but his world keeps growing in my mind, and I had to let this stuff out first to ease the pressure!

    Captain Sensible: thank you Chris! (double styled wings/tail: this shows us how contemporary the old masters are!)Let’s see if I can take it a bit further… .

    DELTATHUND3R: thank you! Thanks for taking the time to drop me a line: motivating!

    Lucky_1: no sweat Luc, I’m always glad you take the time to check out my works and drop me a line ! Glad u like the new one!
