My good friends always suggest I should do more sketches... or more pencil drawings, anyway. So I did a small doodle during the last weekend. Okay, first traditional artwork of "Reptile" in 2012! ^^"

This picture has two very special aspects:

1) First of all, the title. I've not become "lazy" and will NOT number my artworks consecutively from now on. But when I did this head shot of Reptile, I suddenly thought... why should I give it any special title? I want YOU to think about a fitting title or content yourself!! So, what could Reptile think about in this particular moment? I'm curious to read your ideas. :D

2) Secondly, this drawing may be a "pencil sketch" or a "lighting-shading study" if you like... so, is it a sketch? Shall I put it into "scraps"? No. I think it's good enough to show it in my normal gallery!

Done with one HB pencil.
Working time: 30 minutes!
Size: 15x15 cm

30 goddamn minutes? o.O I'm envious. And I know a lot of artists will be too ^^

Yes, I was sitting next to my buddy (he played some PC games) when I did this. ^^"

Aside from the record... thanks for the comment and lemme speak more or less privatly now:

(German mode ^^ )
Hallo, mein Lieber.
Schön, von Dir zu hören... ich schätze mal, das ist bei dir nicht anders. Ja, sorry... die letzten Wochen waren echt heftig, denn wir haben immer noch viel Stress auf der Arbeit UND nun die anstehenden Zeugnisse. Da gibt's wieder Konferenzen ohne Ende.
ZU allem Ãberfluss bin ich schwer erkältet und kann mich DOCH nicht schonen... auch wenn ich das sollte.
Heute Abend bin ich mal kurz im Chat, aber ich schaffe nicht mehr, als eine STunde... dann brennen schon die Augen und die Nase ist zu. :(
Na ja, insgesamt geht's mir gut... ist halt nur die Arbeit, welche viel Kraft in Anspruch nimmt. INnerhalb einer Woche hab ich weder ZEit noch Lust, an den PC zu gehen... einfach zu kaputt.
Hoffe, du verstehst das. ^^"
Ich hab dich nicht vergessen, also keine Sorge.
Man hört sich, kay? ^____^

Just like you said... some (more or less) new artwork - and clean! :D
Tornado 2 years ago 0
yeah. Also, since I've been trying to get back into using this site a bit, it was just an observation that I didn't see some recent stuff from you here (not necessarily the trade piece you did. Just stuff in general).
ReptileCynrik 2 years ago 0
Well, I will limit my submissions to pictures where we can see "REPTILE"... in any way. ^^"
That's why I don't upload my "Wasteland Saga" artworks and countless other trades or gift arts.
But sure, THIS picture here was a nice "Reptile portrait" and it had to be here, as well.
And you see... most recent stuff from my hands WERE mostly gifts! XD
But I am working at a new artwork for MYSELF right now..........................

ya that's true now that I think about it most of your new stuff has been gifts.

+1 what Orcabutt said.


There's so much...... motion just looks so real! Not real in the sense of shading and depth (well, that too) but just the anatomy and how it's displayed is as if Reppy was sitting in front of you as you sketched him! (was he?)
ReptileCynrik 2 years ago 0
I was really trying to... well, yeah: to do a pencil PORTRAIT of a fictional character! ^^"
As IF he were sitting in front of me... indeed!!!
I'm skilled in human portraits... but THIS here was a challange. AND maybe, I'll do more in this direction. ^^

It makes me just want to reach out and touch him. It also seems to be another, more subjective glimpse into his (your???) Personality.

(Must remember to keep up with yer main site!!)

Thanks again. :) My personal homepage is currently down, though... hope, this will be fixed soon. ^^ "

So, I'm forced to admit I attempted to read your comment to Toumal (I'm still trying to learn!!) it sounds like things are going not so easy for you? I hope everything works out and cools down for you sooner than later! *hugs*

Yeah, there's much stress at work and I aught a bad cold. ^^"
Thanks for the warm words. ^____^ *hugs*

"Rep The Iguana" "Portrait Of Rep" "Cynrik The King" "King Rep" "King Cynrik" "Sexy Reppy The King"

*Reptilian Royalty* *Your King Cynrik* *King Of Scalies* *Iguana Liege* *Patriarch Of Cynrik* *Reptile The Patriarch*

Do any of those ring a bell for you Rep ;)

^____________^ Too many keywords... :D BUT all correct, hehehehe. *huuuuugs*

You did say you wanted a title and I gave you some King Sexy Reppy *Warm hugs* Did you like any of those?
ReptileCynrik 2 years ago 0
I was referring to a title, that would determine his FACIAL EXPRESSION or MOOD right now!! ;) Didn't want to call the picture "Curiousity", 'cause it might steal fantasy and imagination from other people.

Your "titles" are all sweet... but not really fitting to THIS particular drawing. ^^"

Except "Portrait of Rep" maybe. :******
SwiftWindSpirit 2 years ago 0
Oh I get it now! Ok, I'll throw one at you..

*Confident Cynrik*

I think this picture brings out a lot of confidence because of who Reptile is and what he brings to others as a leader. Others follow him because he is confident and that's why they are loyal to him.

:) How's that?

i cant think of a title :(. but he looks like he would be thinking: damb i look good. hehehe 5/5 for this sketch. =)
ReptileCynrik 2 years ago 0
Well, "Thinking" is a title, after all!! ^____^ Or "Lost in thoughts"... :-)

But I didn't want your imagination to be useless, that's why I didn't chose a title.
