Thanks for the share, that was awesome. Every new character was like unwrapping a mystery. At first you have no idea what it'll be, but you know it's going to be great. And then you get it and it surpasses your expectations. Like Willy Wonka gum.

The MOST amazing drawing I've ever seen! Only artists can truly appreciate the kind of ability/thought/ knowledge you have to have to be able to create this! Amazing!

Hahahah! Slicktastic! My drawing prof would have had such a fit if she saw him @ work. ;p
She was constantly bitching at us about "working" the whole picture at once. Phooey!
I say, do what works! And this obviously works. :nod:

Yes, yes, yes! Kim Jung destroys all art instruction! There is no "way" to draw, except what flows from your self. He is so liberating.

But aren't those tears of joy? I feel that he shows me what my body and mind are capable of. I don't mean I will ever reach his level, but I feel that it is within me, and that I can go a long way towards this ability. Now I know how vast the field of possibility is before me, and I am happy.

This guy really is amazing. His sketchbook is really something, too. 700+ pages of sketches, finished drawings, and comic pages. Not sure if you know of his site, but here - [link]

Sketches are updated regularly here.

Ive always been incredibly jealous of "projector-heads". This is the term I came up with for artists who see an image in their head and project it right on to the page. They literally just trace that projected image, seemingly effortlessly. Its like a super-power. This is definitely one of the most amazing things Ive seen in a LONG time.

alexandergras Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2012
"Projector-head" seems to imply that he has the whole image in his head when he starts. I don't know if that is true. As I see it, he just comes up with one part after another, never knowing himself, what he will draw next. But I may be wrong.

What is most amazing about his way of drawing for me, is that he develops proportionally correct figures from any point in their anatomy. He even starts one figure with its hat! This contradicts all drawing teachers, who insist that you have to find the whole shape first, that you have to start with the hip or head, etc. Kim Jung just starts anywhere, and his figures are in perfect proportion. It makes me feel good, because I draw the same way, or rather, I learn to draw in this way (and could never grasp how to "construct" a figure).

I don't necessarily means he has the ENTIRE image, fully realized, in his head before he begins. It's more like, "Ok, I'm going to draw a goat looking over its shoulder now" and, wham, there's a goat looking over its shoulder projected on his mental screen. He's obviously making it up as he goes along. I'm just suggesting that, perhaps, as the idea pops in to his head, he projects it, play-by-play. I'm also totally speculating. I have no idea how his mind works. I also don't mean to minimize, in any way, how "projector heads" work, as if they dont work at it like the rest of us. I'd give damn near anything for the ability.

A few hours after I wrote my comment, I realized that I got you wrong. And that you are right. I totally believe that Kim Jung has the image of each individual figure more or less complete (maybe sans details) in his head, before he starts to draw, and that is why he can start at any point and does not have to construct the figure from the head or hip or whatever.

I don't want to belittle Kim Jung's ability, and I don't want to pretend a level of mastery that I don't have, but it seems to me that I actually do draw in the same way. I find myself completely unable to learn any system of proportion, I cannot construct a figure from geometric shaped, or flesh out a stick figure. When I draw from memory, I have this knowledge inside of me how the object I want to draw looks in the pose that I want to draw it in. This knowledge stems from having drawn the object. My internal image is rather vague and blurry, because I do not draw enough and have not input enough data to know most objects intimately enough to rotate them in my mind.

When you look at Kim Jung's sketchbooks, you can see that he draws everything around himself, and the sheer mass of his sketches gives the impression that he draws constantly. It seems to me, and maybe you can say something to that, that most professional comic artists, although the draw a whole lot, mostly draw from their head. They don't draw "from life" very much. The effect of this is that they have a very limited set of data available to them, and are stuck with constructing much that they want to draw from this limited knowledge. If they want to draw a "new" pose, they need reference. Kim Jung does not need reference, because there is nothing that he has not drawn a thousand times from every angle.

This is my impression, and it may be wrong, but even at my low level of ability I can see how my internal image develops with an increase of life drawing. And when I draw from life, I don't do what most art instructors recommend, which is to "deconstruct" the image visually and "reconstruct" it on paper, but rather I draw what I see without understanding its internal construction.

Think of how children learn a language, and how you are taught a language at school. In school the teacher explains the grammar, gives you a list of vocabulary to learn, and does exercises with you. Most pupils never get good at any language they learn in school. As a child, you are immersed in the language and no-one bothers with teaching it to you. Yet, you pick it up, and most children learn all of the languages they encounter in this way rather perfectly.

Drawing, I believe, works the same way. Most art instruction is like learning a language in school: very unnatural, non-intuitive, artificial. You get a set of rules, a vocabulary, and do exercises that have nothing to do with "living inside a language". The way I believe Kim Jung practises, and the way I do practise drawing, is like learning a language as a child: don't try to understand the principles of art, just draw what you see.

It is a slower way, but with deeper learning. What do you think?

Totally agree, I think he is a skilled artist but having nowhere near his skill level I can't even get close to understanding how he takes it from brain to paper with such seeming ease, just extemporaneously. I think everyone can kind of have that same creation on the mental canvas but the transference from concept to reality that he pulls off is flabbergasting. I would like to know what the real render time was.

On another note his art has a cool sense of humor to it; kind of reminds of Jack Davis or something. Lots of life and personality.
