Your title is very......... different.
Nice sketches including the girl with an ax. That is stylish alright. I think your linework sticks out the most to me and gives it a cartoonish quality.
Overall you sketches are nice but it would be better if you had something a little more finished or colored.
I hear ya. I can appreciate a comfort zone.
Mmmmmm....this SB looks promising!!!Keep posting!Those girls are hot!!!But the knee in the first one is little big,don´t you think?
A great start to a promising sketchbook, keep it up! You seem to habve a string sense of sillouhette

My Sketch Book!
right! friday! I was a bit lazy today.......... played golf all day so its a bit basic and empty.
i really like the style personally ,very good stuff here u got alot of skill
what kind of pencil's do you use? do you use mechanical? this is the kind of linework i like, but i cant seem to get that kind of detail with my 6B-4H pencils...
Its some great line work alright. The subjects are a little crazy.
Do you use any referances before drawing?
I'm enjoying this SB too. Can't wait to see more
my sketches, and rants.
and thanks to everyone for the comments!
I already like what I see. If this is rusty, I can't wait to see what's coming! Just don't make us wait 6 years for it...
Watch out for Piranhas

Ev'sSketchbook for the lazy minded but willing!
Help an artist, leave a critique.
Saturday / sunday / lazy weekend
I dont actually like this. Its too clean if you know what I mean. Back to the collage type of pages me thinks
do you happen to know some excercises for getting a cleaner pencil line, like drawing hundreds of pages full of straight lines or something?
keep up your crazy pages!!!
your work is amazing... i like how the torpedo and the word bubbles look so clean... they dont look freehand, they look like they were drawn from one of those multi circle stencils. keep going, i want more!
could you possibly show some process shot's on your next one... i would love to see the way you go about drawing these.
OK you asked for it so here it is
tuesday ( skipped monday because of my lazy nature)
steps 1 and 2

steps 5 and 6

i envy you sir. where did you start with drawing? did you use any books or classes? your shading is magnificent and everything seems to be spot on... do you use references? keep em coming!
The best advice anyone can give you is PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE. Through highschool I used to get in trouble because I would start sketching in the back of my books and end up meeting my Math or English work half way through the book.
As for the references I'd say I use them 20% of the time. But not in a traditional sense. I might see a pose I like. But I will alter the bodys size and shape and perhaps move a limb or two into a new direction to suit my own goal. I also tend to idealise people. After I have the basic shape my imagination does the rest.
If you want consistent shading its alway best to simply draw an arrow on the page telling you where light is comming from, then erase it once you're done. I dont tend to use them anymore as I can usually remember where my light source is but I often make mistakes this way as I like to change my mind alot
hope that helped.
and thanks for the comments guys I'll check out your stuff!
p.s. feel free to crit!! I can see some glaring errors in my pages now that I look at them. Afresh set of eyes is always a good thing folks!
