As I mentioned before, I really love your pen and ink work... would you mind giving a little insight as to your process with shading in ink? Particularly I'm interested in the types of inks you are using. I typically only work with whatever technical pen/markers I have around and my Prismacolor Marker gray tones for ink shading and it doesn't even come close to what you acheive.
Just saw your post from the 11th that addresses my question directly. Looks like I just need more practice. Thanks!

good progress man. keep it up.
one thing about highlights: usually there's only 1 'super bright' highlight on a figure; which is the one closest to the primary lightsource. Every other highlight on your figure will be varying levels lighter than that highlight as they get further away from the primary lightsource. The reason i bring this up is because you seem to generally highlight the entire image with the same intensity, particularly in some of your b&w drawings. this breaks up your drawing a bit and takes away from a central focal point.
that being said. great bird studies, and monster designs. keep on rocking it.
Wow, Quinn, YOU"RE A MACHINE!! You have a lot of stuff here since you first started this a few days ago. Maybe I need to start digitally painting everyday so I can become badass at it like you are now. Keep it up!
Wauw I love all those creatures it's so beautiful thanks for the inspiration. I will try to make some monsters to and try out paint instead of pencil. Keep it up let me know if you have some more. I like to look at your sketchbook.
Great stuff man. Really liking the new monster. I am looking forawrd to seeing him developed. Right now its like "hey, i have a tenticle for an arm" and then the rest of him doesnt really support that. I hope you start adding some design elements that will turn this thing from awesome, to BAD ASS. Really digging the head too.
