    Here are just some things from my sketchbook.

    Included are character sketches for a story I'm trying to pile together as well as whatever I felt like drawing in class. I know one thing I have to start doing is more observational sketches. Those never thrill me =_=;

    I'll be trying to update this thing at least once a week... Hehe.

    Great manga style and line work! These are definitely beautiful illustrations.
    Will I see more to come? I am really looking forward to it.

    Nice job!

    It should always be bore in one's mind that he must be responsible for his life........

    12 . 10 . 07 - moooore

    Just getting all my scans & whatever done for the day before I get started on a few projects I've put on hold.

    The Siege of Mars was done for a CA Teen Challenge. Loads of fun >o> I'm going to be trying to do a challenge a week for improvement purposes.
    And the undead carriage is something for Industrial design for the week. Hope I can finish it before the deadline~
    The last one I just like because I was screwin around with some textures and the results weren't bad. : D

    And thanks for the feedback, everyone ;0;

    Hey man,
    Very interesting sketchbook you have here.
    I love you attention to details and the clean linework, although somehow i prefer your "sketchy" drawings, before you clean them up.

    Some wicked concepts you have here,that undead carriage for an instance. And I also like textures in last piece.

    Keep updating, Id like to see more of those figure studies. They are going along very nicely.

    Just spent the afternoon coloring some figures I've been doodling. The coloring took about 40 minutes or so on each character, screwin with color schemes or whatever. Trying to depict fashion in each different region for a personal project I'm working on. *refuses to give out anymore on that*
    There was one more but there was some trouble lining him , so I'll fix him up later.

    Nice SB so far. Some very cool pencil work.
    The painted image actually would benefit from some of that linework, so get in there with a sharper brush and basically add some coloured lines. The images would be alot stronger IMO with some sharper edges.

    The technique that you used in your first drawing and others after, is awesome. Congratulations. Strangely as I scrolled down, I was not as much amused. Didn't like the mars one for example.

    The images with the gray backs and random characters are just some sketch commissions I whored myself out to to get some extra cash for holiday shopping. There'll be more of those >_>
    The other two or just little things from my actual sketchbook. :0
    I should start... Working on something for my own benefit ~sigh~

    hi

    I'm digging your style, especially the poses you've done. The character you've done are 'just' cool. You make me want to sit drawing all the bizarre things in my mind

    The red head girl is a little weird. Do u use some reference at least when you start working for money

    good sketchbook, keep it

    Nice sketches. I think adding some thought of lineweight here and there will make them even better.

    Keep posting!

    eeuuuggghhhh

    I just wanted this to be a post for itself to say: Dear god someone crit me with colors/skin tones/coloring the human body because as seen below this can be described as a bucket of failure. A big bucket.
    I don't mean to be so hard on myself.... Well... Yes I do because that's the only way to improve, eh? Anyways, HELP. CRIT. ADVICE. Anything and everything is appreciated.

    (I'll be posting more later today)

    Happy New Years~!

    Another dump of sketchbook junk. I've been doing alot of face/human body studies lately. Its fun and all but it gives me the shaky feeling that the more I work on this stuff the more rusty I get on my environments. And I've rusty to begin with.

    I wish there were more hours in the day.

    What's there to say. Your stuff is sick. I'm in love with the very very last image with the 2 of them splitting apart.

    I think the one thing you're missing is angular shots. Try some very weird perspective stuff. You'd probably rock it and give your mind a workout!

    peace

    Awesome! But I wold try to add in some more cool colors, not just blues and all that, but muted colors. Hmm.. it does depend on lighting, and I guess I'd have to show you myself or something. xD Idk. But yar - you're getting better with poses! Very quick and lively.

    Thumbs up Cool..

    I must say that if my opinion counts for anything I would say your work is "awesomely cool". Wow, keep it up, I like it - a lot.

    Are you living in the matrix or do you think all of this is real? For me, well I am pretty dang sure it is the matrix. beings.

    Hey Dude, thanks for popping by my sketchbook and leaving kind words.
    You've got some nice things happening in here, really nice line work, I'm lovin that last piece with the shark, very cool. My suggestion for your skin tones is to create a basic under-painting of your base skin tones and from there start adding opacity washes of reds and blues over that, and remember Shadows generally = cool colors and highlights generally = warm.
    Hope this helps, will drop back soon.
    Cheers.
