Arms by samliu Arms by samliu
I've decided to shut down itchstudios.com since I never update it anyways. With sites like Blogger and DeviantArt, it makes posting art faster, easier, and all around less of a hassle for me.

I'll be posting up some of the old stuff that I still kind of like just for posterity.

Love your work and your style.  I have a problem with making my figures stiff..yours are so flexible and natural.

Thanks! I have that problem too if I don't think about how I'm posing stuff. My brain goes an autopilot and balances everything out. Shifting of weight, turns, and head tilts help. But observing from life is probay the best!

Thank you for the advice, where do you find the best subjects for movement? I've tried sports magazines and even sketched from crowds...

Personally I like looking at dancers, models, athletes, gymnasts, etc for movement since their gestures are more exaggerated and extreme. I feel it's better to push the poses then dial it back.

I get a Capcom CRMK Bengus feel from this illustration. He's not one of your inspirations is he?

Yeah I loved Bengus! I haven't looked at his stuff in a long time but I'm sure some of his influence still creeps out of me.

I love how you draw your hands! It seems like they help give even more character/ add movement

Thanks Kayleen! Yeah hands can be really expressive so I always loved drawing them especially to help with the gesture or break the flow. Very insightful observation!

Thanks so much. Not many people mention that but it was a touching piece for me.

No problem! It's a really good piece, I loved the atmosphere of that one in particular, pictures that feel like there's a greater story going on always intrigue me (and fire up the imagination).

Nice! I think itchstudios was one of the few sites I still visited, just because your old stuff isn't on here. It will be great to have everything in one place. Since you're importing stuff from your site, I'd like to formally request your Iron Man drawings ;) You're take on ol' shell head is still my all time favorite rendition of the character.

Thanks Gavin! I didn't think anyone went there anymore so it's nice to hear I haven't become totally irrelevant haha!

I'll definitely put up some of the old Iron Man stuff when I get a free moment. Thanks again man!
