    all my knuckled smudges

    for better or worse I have picked up my pen...
    Ideas, comments and jibberish are all welcomed.

    I really hope that some day I can get good enough to work in the entertainment arts industry, right now I'm a long way off so any pointers would be super helpful.

    so here are a few pen scratches, pencil smudges, and photoshop meanderings.
    work has always gotten in the way, but no longer...
    Thanks for stopping by
    see you around the board.

    Hey my friend I really see that you're heading in the direction of realism, which I like the most in artists like you! The landscapes are very professional painted! It seems you can play with colors! Hehe wish you luck and keep the body studies I see that you can do more than that you're showing! Maybe sparing more time and do some more details will develope your skills!

    Good stuff.

    I like the pencil/ink apartment buildings. They seem to do it for me.

    I typically write more critically, but I'm running low on sleep...so it must be time to go to the coffee shop.

    I dig your landscapes and faces. Keep it up. Those speedpaints of those faces are great.
