    My previous sb turned 1 y/o just over a week ago, and now stands at 22 pages. Which is my lucky number. I also just finished up my second year at college, so I took all this as incentive to start a new book on here and leave beautiful liar behind. Because new years comes sooner for me.

    I don't feel like bumping my old sb, so I'll just very improperly thank everyone for posting and critting my work on there, it means a great deal to wake up some mornings and find that you peeps were interested enough to give well considered, well founded feedback. Muchos gracias.

    Right so I'm pretty darn excited about this coming year, have a lot ideas bouncing around, a lot of pet projects, and best of all some time (college 3rd year gives you a lot of freedom, so I may well end up pursuing some of my own goals). Looking forward to doing some fun stuff.

    Anycase, I'm rambling again. First art of this sb follows in my next post, this one is reserved for the almighty thumb.

    So this was a pretty interesting project, it involved designing and illustrating your own ID book (the title is a play on this concept of this sb becoming an ID document and the Freudian term for the subconscious). Luckily my lecturer gave me quite a bit of liberty and increased creative direction, so I was able to ditch some parts of the brief and add extra stuff. these 9 spreads are the final result:

    Something a little newer - a WIP for an upcoming exhibition of mine. Crits would be appreciated on this one, something feels really really off:

    And, just a trivial little piece - the menu screen designed for me interactive portfolio:

    Hi Brendan.
    Didn't see your previous sketchbook, but I liked the style and the design of your project pages at the top so much, I'll have to check out your older stuff. I think you've nailed the theme, loose linework and textures really fit the subject. Good luck with your studies man, keep it up

    this one was done with a new brush set I put together for myself, instead of the usual barontieri/min mix.
    this is the first time I've used em, hope to take them further and evolve them.

    Those textures are so great, gotta love them

    As for your problem in post 4, I can't really see what's wrong either. When I squint, I can tell it's compositional.

    I would only suggest moving the woman closer to the circle, and having her hair cross it. I find myself very unsatisfied with the 'touching' between the hair and the circle there; it irks me. See if that makes any difference.

    Very interesting and unique pages, you have some really great textures in them. SP is really nice as well. Keep it up Brendan!

    drd - many thanks. The composition there is still very much flawed, and yes the hair is really uncomfortable at this stage - that'll be softened out in the near future. Many thanks for dropping by!

    Skeiff - Thanks Mitch, always cool hearing kind words from you. Thanks for dropping by, remind me to pay you a visit.

    Just a quick speedie-bump here - I don't think this one is more than 30 minutes. Real art soon!

    great start to your new sketchbook. the speedpaints are really strong. on the wip for the exebition i think the problem is that the position of the figure is pulling the eye off the page which is competing with the graphic shape of the hair and the circle on the right side. i dont know what is supposed to be going on but i would think about flipping the figure and have her looking to the right side of the image, also, maybe change the position of one of the arms to also help lead the eye through the image, not off it.
