Finally scavenged a start of a sketchbook to share.. They range from traditional media stuff to my learning steps with digital painting as well as zbrush/3d forrays..
Be ruthless I wanna hear any and all thoughts..

S!r, great sketchbook man!!
My fave is the yellow face in post #1. Any chance you could shed some light on that piece -- I can't tell what medium you used. Anyway, it's badass .
You've got a really unique style too. I love those sketches at the bottom of post #2.
Keep 'em coming!

JonathanS- Thanks! The yellow guy was made with one airbrush, one can of aerosol, and a sharpie... Kinda a weird mash of my old disciples graffitti/airbrushing... Although i dont do much traditional media anymore after now discovering the vast world of digital painting....I think my lungs are happy not suckin up aero fumes for hours on end...lol

Good start,always good to see some comic style and i know what you mean...digital is veerrry comfortable.
But also be aware that e.g practicing with pencils helps you a getting sense of value and most of all your lines get tighter and saver and speeding up your workflow. In digital you always have the chance to correct things thousands of times, which kind of slow you down in a way...

I like the traditional stuff -- it looks a lot more polished than your digitals. I guess that's because you're new to digital. You'll catch up in time. As for the drawings, your cartoon stuff looks great, but your realistic stuff isn't up to the same level -- I'd recommend doing a lot of study on the basics of anatomy and proportion, and getting in as much life drawing of whatever kind you can manage as possible. Keep it up!

Delmar- Yeah I hear ya..have no fear as enamoured as I am with digital it will NEVER entirely replace my trusty wartorn sketchbooks. Pencil is still by far my favorite medium to dump out my brain onto the page. As fun as the tablet is it still feels somewhat like cutting a steak with a butter knife when creating from scratch..
Funfetus-You are right. For years I have thought of myself as having more of a cartoony/exhaggerated style..I am now actively studying on my own various anatomy books,etc and attempting to get a better grasp/foundation for a new direction for my style. Thank you for your input!
