hey guys and gals! i been laying low on the sketchbook thing for years here, but after seeing sparth start a book in here i got all nostalgic and wanted to start one as well. just like the old days haha. so here are some various little speedpaints, and some pages from my current rough book. these drawings and some others will appearing in an upcoming imaginefx sketchbook section. most of these are just hacked through real fast, and with the exception of the ones obviously done from life sittings, i dont use any references to try to help build up my mental library. ill try to keep updating, and hopefully this will motivate me to keep doing stuff after work more often....hope ya like!-c36

great vehicles and great loose lines in your pen sketches
Christmas early!! Great little sketches, the PIGDIK sketch reminds me very much of the montreal workshop demo you gave hahaha. The red/purple digi sketch with the jet blows my little mind.
I was stupid enough not to get any comments/critiques about my work when I was in montreal, due to fear, intimidation,..stupidness, so whenever you have some free time, could I possibly recieve a critique on my SB? even if it's just a "you suck, draw more" would be awesome with me.
thanks coro, waiting til the next update!
Ver-y nice. Is your earlier sketchbook still around somewhere? I had a happy browse on your website, but I especially like to see people's roughs and preliminary work.
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).
slap me silly,that's some great stuff. rough eh? rough love at best,i feel so dirty with my own silly stuff now...
i hope this means you'll comment on others' sketchbooks too....?
I really love the different textures in these, do you have a library of overlays that you use, or is it all custom brushes?
...can't see it, blind to the eyes...
OOOOOHHHHHH indeed. It's good to have you back.
one style straight ilustration life is for sissies!
diversity in design mr coro you have. just awesome.
thnx for the post.

welcome to the forum!
haha, just kidding
nice to see you posting, write something more about
your things of the now (the sb´s your using, the pens etc.), its always nice
to try new recommended things to shake your own working methods up.
The thing I love about how the big guys start sketchbooks in this section is that it shows us little doods that even the pro's are doing the things we're doing, trying to better themselves.
I really dig the page with the guy holding the cup along with the looseness of the pen/marker sketches. Cheers man.
damn...I gotta draw a lot more...
Cool stuff...really like your cars and trucks...we want more.
thanks for sharing with us!
why me crank it why me roll
big ups man, pretty pretty stuff.
You are a consummate badass.
Hmm... How long has this existed and why was I not informed when it was?
Joking aside - I'm digging the dude in the suit with the blob-thing-head.
