    depict's Sketchbook

    Thought it was about time to start a sketchbook. Must admit I'm a little nervous, have only recently started using photoshop for artworks but I think I,m getting the hang of things (slowly).
    Here goes a bunch of stuff, crit and suggestions is much appreciated.

    Nice work, so far! Does painting your acoustic guitar affect its sound?

    It affects it ever so slightly, not enough to worry me (it was a crappy old guitar).
    Thanks for the comment.

    Awesome start. Dig the skull paintings.
    The creature head for your avatar is great. I think the teeth are a bit flat though.
    Post more stuff!

    Thanks for the kind words, depict. I'll definitely check those guys out, thanks for the advice.

    I like what I'm seeing here, man. The painting of the skulls on the guitar is really nice. Your digitals kind of remind me of that game Turok, lol. Keep it up, dude.

    Also, the chair design is really slick did you make the wood part also or just the design for the chairs fabric? Either way it looks nice.

    Thanks for the encouragement:

    HunterKiller: I'm in complete agreement with you about those teeth, I think thats just me being lazy, maybe I will fix it up and give the poor creature a body at some stage!

    Ellingsworth: Thanks for the props about my chair, I did indeed make it as well as design it. The idea behind it is that a child can use it to draw on, the backboard spins around and becomes a small drawing board.

    I'm thinking that seeing how this is a sketchbook I should really put some sketches in it!
    Here goes some quick portrait studies (approx 10min each)

    Here is a quick 10min study of one of my favourites El Greco.

    That felt good, they are like the first portraits I've done for months.

    I like htose portrait studies. Very nice. Also I'm impressed that you designed a chair! Did you build it yourself?

    House Hatke: Cheers mate, and yes, I did indeed build the chair.

    A visit to the museum. Here goes a study of a spidermonkey skeleton, needed to get back to the good old basics and do some reference stuff!
