sketchbook #1, book of bad intentions.
inspired by all of the great work here I have finally got the guts to start posting more of my stuff. I'm self taught and currently work 'old school', meaning I don't use photoshop or painter...yet.
The first pic is an unfinished (no background yet) delusional self portrait done in pencil and born of fustration and road rage. the second is a 30 minute sketch done with prismacolor markers and the third is a quick done in pen with no pencil sketch up. there will be more.
any contact with other artists is welcome, but forgive me if it sometimes takes a few days for me to post back.
thanks and I hope you all enjoy.

Oooh I like them, pierced boobs and all! I especially like the last one, looks like some of the blizzard art style from Samwise.
The only critique I can offer is not really critique but do other styles too. Right now your forms are not perfect and can certainly be nitpicked but why bother when this is clearly a style you've chosen to draw in.

Nice work, kind of reminds me of a mixture of things, Bizley, Adrians Smith's old Warhammer pencil drawings, and as someone already mentioned Samwise...but I think thats mostly in the "pierced" chicks face...it looks like a night elf or something from WoW.
My main crit would be with the first piece. Everything does not have to be, nor need to be crawling with detail. I know its cool to explore every little nook and cranny of something, but the piece overall looses intensity. I think Adrian Smith had that problem with some of those early warhammer pieces. Theres so much detail on EVERYTHING, that it kind of flattens the piece out and makes it hard to read in places. It kind of destroys the illusion of volume.

That ink drawing of the dude is bad ass! Wow. The detailing and sketching on him isn't as distracting or flattening as it is in that first pencil piece and in fact, it is actually the part of the drawing I like best. Very cool stuff! A little more contrast in the coloring/shading of that beastman with the wicked cowl would really make that picture outstanding, imho.
Thanks for showing this stuff!

wow, I didn't expect such a great response. thanks a bunch to all who posted, I can't begin to tell you guys how much help this site has been to me. some where down the years I lost my confidence, it's nice to feel it coming back again.
you guys hit it right-on too, I do play warhammer and Adrian Smith and Bisley are two of my big influences. the 'over-the-top' detail issue is one I am currently trying to deal with, I have found that study of the work of Mike Mignola (hellboy) and frank Miller (Sin City) have helped with this. I feel I should also mention Vincent Locke (Cannibal Corpse covers) as his work as also been an inspiration over the years. however the work I'm about to post is older so doesn't reflect this new course of study. thanks agian for all the input.

NICE! I am loving that first one the most...The pierced boobs distract from the rest of the picture though ( I think someone else has said that ) Keep it coming!

Another champion of the "old school" media. Awesome. I feel so out of place looking at all the great digital stuff on this site sometimes.
I love Bisley. And over-the-top detail. And I dig your shading work. Lose not your confidence or attention to detail. Stick with it, dude. New subscriber. Have some stars on me
