Well you have grasp of antomy , but show us some more studies, and take some time out, and sketch a lamp with the light on , its good practice for values.

I love the style of the text face in your first post. Post more, for sure.
concept art rules!
Hey Rockhart. I decided to listen to your suggestion and stop by. Thanks for checking out my stuff by-the-way. You've got some pretty nice stuff here. Did you do your avatar pic in illustrator. I hate that program. I gotta respect you for that. I like that pic of the grey guy holding the gun. The perspective on the gun is really good. Keep up the good work.

I think you are being pretty brave at what your attmepting here, which is good and fun
To see some bigger improvements though, you need to break your finished pieces into smaller chunks focusing on one thing at a time... be it anatomy, composition or palette.
Basically i think your biting off more than you can chew..
just keep oging though and things will start to improve

k here are some more, both are on 11X17 bristol. but first... some thx.
.:J/A\X:. - thx. i hope you noticed if u turn it upside down it's acutally a car ad... oh and it's titled "Consumerism"
welch99 - Hey thx for commenting! and yeah the pic was done in illustrator. somehow i learned how to do it but not photoshop... i'll have to correct that sometime.
smartkyle - thx for the crit but what did u mean by "I think you are being pretty brave at what your attmepting here" ? just wondering!
Eponine - thx i actually started to do a really large color pencil drawing of it but... maybe i'll finish it during Christmas break.
I love that leaf study!
I need you need to practice on gestures, some of your figures are stiff
Keep it up man
It's pretty neat that you've attempted Vector Drawing. It's hard and time consuming but when done well it shocks people. And it can go on T-shirts + make money! haha
Your drawings are pretty good but you should definitely study more anatomy and get into the proper thought process of drawing.
Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook and making a comment!
Nice stuff here, I like the guy with the red eyes and the rabbit on the gun, pretty cool
You have veray varied styles in your sketchbook. I would even say, that it is uneven. Some your works are stunning, and other are just... flat...
BTW: thanks for comment on my Sketchbook.
all right my real sketchbooks almost full! but before i post the goodies some thx must be dole out...
MurdokX - thx! the leaf looks nicer in real life though... and i agree some of my figures are a little stiff.
ped454 - thx i really like adobe illustrator. its awsome!
Mr. Gadbury - and and you're welcome!
DoktorNo - thx. well, variatey is the spice of life... and one of the reason i think some of these pieces stand out more than the others is their level of completion. or that some pieces i have spent alot of time on versus those drawn in only 30 min or less.
k now the images! most are just studies for possible projects...
I like that last update, nice variety through the sketchbook so far.
Your work is so cool... keep it up...
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.
proportion is what you need i saw that some head was bigger than the body and a body to long for the head but good concepts love them
yes it's a bad habit i'm addicted to ing
Mr. Gadbury - Nice to see you on my sketchbook again!
zaimless - thx. why did you resurect a couple of my old critique center posts? oh well maybe they'll get new cits...
clueless sketch- hmmm... well if your refering to the mummy one thats alright because i did that on purpose. it makes the mummy's shrivled corpse look even skinnier. plus his mouth is opening ridiclously wide too.
k here is a piece i did in only an hour or so, then sent it to this contest (Coloursoft USA)and hoped for the best. which happened to be third place! enjoy...
A wide variety of work here of varying quality - but this is what makes you great! You're trying everything and learning - pushing your knowledge further each time. There's so much progress being made, keep it up! Like others have said though, make sure you keep some time for the 'boring' serious stuff too - anatomy is really important and it'll push your creations to the next level.
Connie Cane - thank you!
thek - thx for the comment. don't worry im still keeping time for the boring stuff, but i probably wont post any of it
k, this is getting hard to find any new images. pretty soon I'll actually have to draw some more! jk working on a big piece right now that is taking up most of my drawing time... enjoy and crit!

Thanks for looking at my sketchbook.
This is a nice start. You are do your share of studies, but most importantly, you are not afraid of trying something new.
The leaf study/drawing is very good. A big difference. I'm going to guess that it took a while. It looks like you slowed way down, and thought about every step you made. Excellent.
Perhaps you should try the same thing on additional works. There is nothing wrong with spending six hours on a drawing. Try another study, maybe a shoe, or something just as interesting. Try to slow it way down. Make sure that every line is just where it belongs. Don't settle for less. If you get frustrated, don't worry. You can try to push throught it, but there is nothing wrong with setting it aside for a while and calming down. We can all benefit from studies like this. (others may disagree, so take it with a grain of salt)
Sedig-actually alot of the pieces i've put on here have taken longer than that leaf both of the magician pieces and the lake are 14x17 and very detailed. the waiters and some other ones too, but maybe it's confusing cause i mixed them with some sketches and rough drawings... oh well
redid the soldier in illustrator for fun.
