    I'm having totally STUPID amounts of fun playing with Photoshop. And, yes, I really did have a red velvet sailor suit like that...for about ten minutes. Then I think they realized I was going to set fire to the house in the night if they made me wear it. I was youngest; I got hand-me-downs. But god knows when that thing was handed down from -- a Victorian orphanage, by the look of it.
    I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).

    haha your crativity is a great thing. I like it when someones personality comes right out in their work.

    The birdman, I also enjoyed...what about bringing him back and doing a nice digital? I don't know exactly what your wanting to dig back into though. thanks for correcting my aweful 'beetle' spelling. Don't be a stranger, I want to see what you do in the future

    Welcome to CA Stoat, and to the sketchbook section.

    The oils are what get me, just beautiful. Not sure about that haircut though .
    Hope you keep posting and updating this thread, would be cool to see the progression in a year. Cheers!

    OMG! I have stars! I can't tell you guys how surprised and flattered I am. There are so many people in this forum whose work flat out blows me away. I tiptoe around the sketchbooks every morning with big eyes.

    I posted the old stuff to kind of nerve myself up to begin drawing again. When I found that sketchbook, it reminded me that I had *something* before I disappeared in the bowels of a corporation for 25 years.

    In a way, I kind of stepped on my own tail by posting the older work, though. What follows is going to be loose, sketchy and mostly digital until I can unpack my drawing materials.

    Yeah, lucky me...I'm trying to sell a house in this market. The real estate lady was like, "about all this junk...can you make it go away for a while?" So my life is in boxes for the foreseeable future. Partly, I'm drawing to distract myself; otherwise, I might start screaming and never stop.

    Ummmm..."don't get laid where you get paid"? Or, ummm..."never take amphetamines when you have a headache"? Eh. Pass.

    I really enjoyed my corporate job. All my friends and family thought I was nuts, because I had been Snotty McFineartist all my life and then all of a sudden I was a cubicle-monkey. But those early computer graphics systems were INCREDIBLY expensive, so if you wanted to play digital, you had to go corporate.

    Groovy work, man. I really dig those old school sketches. I think the hand-made stuff is much better than the digital works. The oils look really good too, good technique. What about some backgrounds to put those characters in?

    I completely suck at environments. That's something I'm going to work on.

    The old-school stuff is a little misleading: those probably aren't sketches as such but are things I had been working on for a while. I often did drawings multiple times until I was happy. I'm very slow.

    I'm hoping digital will help me loosen up and be more sketchy -- at least in my preliminary drawings. Electrons are cheap and ink doesn't have an "undo" button.
