Stanford Bru
Battle of Stamford Bridge 1066, an enormous viking hold back the saxon army of Harold alone, enough to allow his fellow norwegians led by Harald Hardrada to reach the head of the bridge
Joe Stanton the gunman
Just a dirty bastard in the old wild west who obviously took part in the confederacy in the past
tecnique: pencils, ink, and digital colouring with photoshop cs6 as software and wacom intuos small as tool
Colt Single Action Army 45
I started from a little drawing of mine of about 11,5 cm. in lenght, and i cleaned it up in photoshop with curves and added some colouring with tone and saturation
Hello there,
I wanted to ask something to the other deviants like me, whether core or not :P 
I was told by many teachers that for improving the drawing skill i should only (or mostly) copy, from pages and illustrations by other authors.
Is it really so true, in your opinion? 
Personally, i can use some photo reference time by time, but in the most recent times i've been drawing just from my mind, i think it is a good exercise too, that makes you use your photographic memory, this is the way i produced those two sketches, for example:

Mature Content

Nude woman digital sketch by B4LD3R
 and this newer one  Biting her pinkie (updated) by B4LD3R not even for this one i've used a pose reference at all  Ingvar by B4LD3R

I don't know if it is me, but, i found copying too much easy to actually learn something by doing that,
That's why i created a specific folder to put all the photographic portraits in it:…

So i can let myself get inspired by some images i've seen previously, or by the style of authors i like that could influence me, IMHO this is the best way, but, i'm open to debate on it if you would like to give your advice,
i'd be most thankful ^^

I accomplished diploma at artistic high scool Francesco Arcangeli in Tolmino street, Bologna, Italy.
Always in my city, i attended to various advertising graphic courses.
Then i approached the world of comics with just as many concerning courses, during which i realized a comic alongside the classmates

I've propose it as project for a contest announced by my district

I'm now doing a comic based on the story of the Viking Björn Jarnsida (Bjorn Ironside), he belonged to the swedish royal dinasty of Munsö
You can find the first chapter here:…

Ciao Davide, ti rispondo qui perché sto tentando di tenere in ordine i commenti sul mio profilo (per questo preferirei fossero fatti in risposta a quello in evidenza XD)... Figurati, non c'è di che! :)
Ho visto che disegni, pur non essendo io un esperto (infatti più che altro scrivo, e ammiro chi li fa ;P) mi piacciono molto i tuoi studi di figura. Complimenti, ed in bocca al lupo per le tue future creazioni. ;)

Beh, anche se non è il mio campo, direi che te la cavi piuttosto bene... :)
Se poi sei curioso ed hai tempo e voglia, mi farebbe piacere che tu dessi un'occhiata alle cosine che scrivo. :D Intanto grazie e buona giornata!
