OK, I've been being bugged a bit lately to start up another sketchbook so here it is. The sequel to the prequel of my art journey.
Sadly because of my lack of a scanner, this sketchbook is going to be mainly digital. If there's something I believe is exceptionally likable how ever I may post traditional drawings. I draw much more traditionally digitally which is a bit unfortunate.
I'll start with some older work that I did during my SB absence:

Some really cool work here, you have polished it up nicely but my biggest problem is I don't feel you spend enough time before rendering making sure that the lineart is solid. Also look at this piece, you see that the edges towards the bottom are all a bit fuzzy, now I know you don't want hard edges all over but in some places the colour seems to leak into the surrounding areas which can sort of flatten the image. Anyway you have improved so much since the last sb and I look forward to seeing how far you'll come. Cya around man.
hey jake, some good stuff you got here man. i like the punk pengiun. some of the art u posted have really good lighting effects, like the mask on 6 picture on your first post. but then it goes flat down at the bottom, kinda bummed out on that part. i see you like drawing skulls, you might wanna try a real skull and that might boost up the figure on your skulls. i hope this helps

I like your steampunk penguin, but I'm not quite sure what the device on his back is supposed to be doing. I understand it's steampunk, but it's function isn't clear to me. I don't know if that's actualy a problem, but my brain got caught on it.
Great job, I like the stylized skulls but maybe a bit of life drawing from real skulls would help you a lot...but I think someone already mentioned that before. Anyways, love your airbrush skills dude, great works!
Sorry for the lack updates. I haven't done any digital painting in a while.
I finally got some jobs. I'll be painting an album cover for a black metal band called Vuotan, a tattoo design, some post apocalyptic concepts, and I'll be airbrushing a toilet seat lid (I'll paint anything if it'll stand still long enough ). Finally I'm gathering some income!
Those airbrush things are really something, I love em. With the actual painting, Try flipping the image halfway in and you'll notice a lot of these are slightly askew. Anyway I got you some stars man, enjoy. Talk some other time on IM.
Great new start man...kannibal klown is great, & that Opeth tribute is kick ass... pretty adequate style you gave him... a ghost of perdition perhaps? Recently I've gotten an interest in finding about airbrushing.. do you have an sort of pointers or online resources I can check out? Keep on posting...
WOW i don't know if i've left a comment here before if not am an idiot.
But anywayz your really great and your arts really aweasome aas well and what makes it more amazing is that your 15 dammn nice work
keep it up bro
hmmm very nice, I haven't looked at your sb since like two months ago or something. Drastic improvements, try to work on more from life, the akerfeldt portrait is cool, even though I can't recognize him .
Okay well since you wanted a crit the biggest problem I have is that your characters arent really in any kind of perspective generally, and are all viewed from similar front on angles. Try doing some studies where you just move your point of view around a character to get some crazy angles. Just like with an environment characters can look better with a more interesting perspective. For a good example of figures in cool perspectives check out Goblinsharks sketchbook and use posemaniacs.com to mess around with crazy angles.
Here's an awful video I made for school. We're sort of doing a pen pal thing only with videos. The people we are exchanging with live in Kibera which is in Kenya (Africa). God I hope I didn't scare any of them....
This is probably the worst video I've ever made... I seem fuckin stoned.
