Eric Elwell's sketchbook monstrositism (warning: some NSFW studies)
See last page for more recent.
Hi... This is my first post (I think). I signed up awhile back, and never got around to getting my stuff out there. There's so much great stuff on CA.org that I am almost afraid to jump in, but I think it will serve to push me to paint harder/faster/better etc. etc. etc.
Most of these in the first post are mirrored from my site. I'll put up new stuff as I do it. (nag me to do this! )
Crits / Comments are very much welcomed!

thanks for the comments, glad you like them so far...
I struggle a bit with values, trying to do some paintings in grayscale for practice. I prefer to start with color for speed (and I just like color heh), but I think I need to learn some things about values.. anyway here it is (ended up doing a color pass/crop as well)

thanks! the rhino is one of my favorites, and was a really fun project, got to do lots of studies.. which I don't get to do as often as I'd like. One more.. from a concept tag at polycount. Highlights are way too strong, but another piece, another day.
Hopefully I can get some time, kick it into high gear and post more than one at a time.. we'll see how time permits.
Hey man! ... yeah the Oregon thing, didn't notice that. Been a registered lurker for too long!
nothing huge.. just a little sketchy sketch for a mini comp at GameArtisans in anticipation of DomWar3. The color pass was done with a mouse, so it will need some more love'n before it's all said and done. Most of my time has been consumed with a brochure. Going to finish that off tonight, then I can get back to painty stuff!
When I saw your sketches, I thought 'oh gosh. wow.' why should you be intimidated? Hehe, I reallyy like your buildings! However, you may want to work on some of the figures (for instance, the man in the armour -- his arm is rather messy) because I feel like they don't possess as much 'ooomph' as the rest.
