Hey, my name is Mitch Malloy, and welcome to my sketchbook "Squid Pro Quo." This sketchbook is dedicated to my growth and expansion as an artist, so if you have any critiques at any time please let me have them. I'm interested in what all of you have to say, and anything helps. And because I like to kick things off with a bang, some figuring drawings for you!!
All were done at AAU in SanFran in a Pre-College course. All are 3-13 inches tall on paper and all were done using live models. I probably got the black lung from all the charcoal in the air though, haha!
(PS: current age is 16, in case any of you felt the need to know--or in case i felt the need to sound like some sort of prodigy HA. Oh god that sounded stuck up)

New picture used for my pixelfighter ID on dA. It's supposed to be a muy pimp version of me. My first successful experiment with this type of coloring. >_> enjoy.

Wow really great sketches. What a figures . But i think shading would be better if i was not 1level. Last one awesome but thos lines in both sides of nose not good, it would be better if u erase it i think.
WTF!!!! this so freaking awesome. i like the life drawings you have posted. post some more. i'll check back. hands down to you my fellow artist.

Guy you are a freakin champion! If there is one thing I can say for crit it's that in alot of the figure drawing bits you seem to be finishing the torso and faces to this incredibly high level and then getting to the hands and feet and being like "oh well, no time" and leaving them a little fuzzy. Maybe you have tons and tons of hands and feet on seperate sheets, in which case can you please post them because I am sure they'll be pretty
throtailer: I tried to shade on many different levels but it's hard to tell with as crappy of scans as I got. D: And I'll conside that remark about the creases in the mouth/cheek area and maybe find a way to keep them and tone them down. Thanks!!
lying prophet: I could post all of my crappy ones too, but they're nowhere near as good. Would you still want to see them though?
foxinshocks: Thanks for you kind words, but unfortunately I lack very many studies. I have more pictures to show if you're interested, but not all of them are very good. For the most part, you're right about me running out of time on these and only finishing a portion because of it. But most of the detailed ones took 40 minutes out of an hour's given time (I would usually go through a few crappy pieces before finding one I liked enough to continue), so they were already quite a bit rushed, if that's any excuse at all. Either way, just let me know if you'd liek to see some other sketches. :>
Just a quick sketch for a friend. Hoping to color soon.
Hey guys, just some more sketches heading your way!
really nice progressive sketches.fun to see.
Hey guys, just some more drawings for you! Opera house was 10 minutes, old man's face was 13 minutes, everything else took five minutes. Hope you like!

New sketch for a story concept. Enjoy!

More new arthur and the bull sketches. enjoy.
Also this comic is comic along nicely. one and a half finished pages and almost 30 thumbed out with dialog. I'll keep you posted. :>
Just a progress shot of a picture I started 30 minutes ago or so. Went through 2 drafts before settling on this one. Still not done, but I'm in class and I figure now is a good time to get some suggestions. So please, if you have any ideas on how to improve this lot, just let me know!
EDIT: after a half an hour break, i came up with these roughs. let me know what you think... i'll be working into it

And here's the final image! enjoy!
Great stuff, mate! Especially liking the figure studies at the top.
Definately keeping track of this thread.
--THERE IS A NEARLY 4 MONTH GAP RIGHT HERE--
Kick-starting this thread again with a new mission: to update this thing daily, or at least with one image for every day I don't post.
Comments and critiques welcome as always
This is fairly old and I only now just finished it. Goal was to only use small round brushes. Hope you like.

Just posting some sketches I bothered to scan last night. Enjoy.
Speedpainting of a desert done in about 1 hour. I made two versions since I wasn't sure if the construct added or detracted from the overall image. Still, hope you guys enjoy.
I'll try to start updating daily, everybody :>
wow very good work
i like the desert picture the most because it has nice depth and great shadows
Really nice desert scene and some kick-ass life drawing stuff at the top.
Really sweet shading and form.
Thanks for the comments over on my new Sketchbook and wanted to return the favor and see what you're capable of.
I'd like to be able to do a desert scene like that (lived in Cairo and Morocco for a short time so it's near to my heart). I think I've got most the basics down for it but getting it all to come together's another story.
Thanks for the posts!
Before tonights scanner marathon I thought I'd post some pictures (from ref on the internet) done from around November/December that I never posted, along with some silhouettes I did a few eeks ago. I hope you guys enjoy, and please stick around for a bunch of all new scans later tonight!!
