    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.

    Thanks mate. Years of designing vectors for t-shirts has left me with very little patience for detailed rendering but hopefully this sketchbook will give me the kick in the ass I need to get back to a more finished fine art standard.

    Kinda yes and kinda no I had this image in my head like the perspective you get in music videos when one part of the body is near the camera lense. But I see what you mean now that I look at it

    right! friday! I was a bit lazy today.......... played golf all day so its a bit basic and empty.

    I'd like to know as well.

    These are very nice, I love your style, as well as the contrast you're achieving with whatever these materials are.

    Believe it or not I actually use a cheap mechanical pencil that has no markings on the side. you know the type you can buy in packs of 5 for a pound (2 dollars). Not specialist at all. Although if I had to guess at the lead type I'd say it was around the 4b range. I get the contrast purely by the amount of pressure I apply to the page. As for the paper its just another cheap pad I bought for a couple of pounds. I'm not very concerned with materials to be honest although I'd love to try a moleskin just because everyone raves about them


    and thanks to everyone for the comments!

    cheers!

    I started as a child. I've always been able to draw well even without training through primary school and highschool. Do you believe everyone is born with one innate tallent? well mine seemed to be drawing beyond my age. The first and last time I did and art course was at 18/19 when I did a pre degree art and design course. It envolved LOTS of life drawing. After the course I chose design and left any art training behind. I've never used books to learn about art as I learn best by doing something phsically.

    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&#37; 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!
