    Well,(updated 1-17-08)

    Well, for good or bad, I decided today to begin a sketchbook on the site. I never really understood what the benefit of a public sketchbook is, but, here it is. Most of this is stuff that I doodled in a few minutes time, and some will most probably never be fleshed out any further, it is more for practice than anything else. Most of these drawings are purely from my mind, no resource material was used on these.

    Thank you, and enjoy. I will post more as I go along.

    Thanks Fayt, it takes lots of practice. I have been drawing for literally years, for hours on end. Here is another quick sketch. In case you had not noticed, I like Thor alot................LOL

    Being a comic book junkie, I'm digging your SB.
    I love the Loki pic, nice pose.
    It's strange because you say your a Thor fan, and yet they seem like the weakest ones IMO. Maybe your not as relaxed as when drawing, say generic muscle guy.

    Do you have any tonal stuff or more realistic work?

    They are very nice clean lines, it'd be great to see some sketchier stuff too!

    Hmmm. These are'nt sketchy enough? Anyway, thanks for your time in looking, and your encouragement guys. I'll keep posting more as I have them. I have toned and realistic stuff, however, as this is a sketchbook, I had thought to keep things "sketchy" here..............LOL

    Another sketch, about 3 minutes to do. It really does not get much sketchier than this for me.

    Hi Ape, thanks for your comment! Welcome to CA!
    I bet you'll find the inspiration here is absolutely more than one can imagine. Since you love comic, I think this might be helpful, just dig out from the SB of The Fat Kid:

    A reply posted by Skeiff in the SB of The Fat Kid, both their works are amazing...

Of course, Glen is an animator, so he does deal with a lot of exaggeration, but his articles are so helpful, and he is a master draftsman and teacher.

    Your stuff is very clean. That in itself is an admirable trait.

    One thing I noticed is that you avoid feet. I do too....so yeah...do feet haha

    Hmmm. I did not think I really avoided feet all that much. Perhaps I do need to draw more of the body, although, many of these are just 2 or 3 minute sketche's, and most of the time drawing the entire body in these sketches is not really needed. Look at the sketche's again, and tell me if I really do avoid feet, if you all think that is the case, then, I will take more time with them. Thank you all for looking and commenting.
