    Nice stuff. I particularly liked the line work on the "kegging" peice.

    ...a perpetual plan for discovery days,where everyone can take part in "purposeless play".

    well howdydooooooo how are you doing there?

    lots of these are illustrations for stuff for school (I'm building a city made out of cardboard and doing a little story to go with it which will hopefully eventually be bundled in a little book if I don't cave under the weight of essays for other subjects

    WHICH I WON'T)

    this is in my head on a constant loop:

    oh your characters are just too fun
    this little boy in the last post reminds me of
    PROFESSOR LAYTON HAHAHA -shot-
    he's so cute and adowable and I love the picture where he's on the street hurhur but also in that picture I think his hand and one of his feet are backwards. I think.

    sweet! i dig your work, and looking through from the early to the later work shows so much progression! I actually really enjoyed looking at your studies sheets, they have given me some ideas for things to try.

    You've got a really good grasp of anatomy. However, you should work more on your faces. Sometimes the face features aren't well aligned/placed. Try to imagine thehead in 3d. And some studies will help you improve much faster.

    Keep up the good work!

    lol! scootchover008, heelarious! lolololol!
    And it's nice to know that you're doing a children's book for one of your assignments.
    Your layouts are supernice, and you've many directions in terms of stories. - ooo, I see
    perpsective studies, nice! - I'm not opposed to you looking into animation.
    It doesn't have to be trad, just, I don't know, more dimensions to play with I guess.

    You kick ass! Fact.

    Note:
    images 7&8 in your website/traditionals is on a loop/linked to the /art.html page
    (don't shoot the messenger)

    miycko: you're welcome, there's plenty more! where that came from cos I don't half love to draw. pencils and paper are exciting. cheers for the kind words

    TOMORROW'S ME BIRTHDAY

    I'm 18 (blummin' 'eck!) which means I can go out and celebrate with booze, cigarettes and hardcore pornography*

    *the above is more than likely a lie and gutss' birthday will probably instead be celebrated by buying new pencils, watching Up and lots of cake

    A belated Happy Birthing ...
    When I was 18, I would have been eating a chicken roll, hmmmmm, those, were, the days.

    : ... it means a lot coming from you!
    I'm a tiny fish, eating the parasites off of your whale back.
    Just keep motivating the rest of us, and we'll try our best to keep up.

    : and I'm planning on doing some animation for my next school art project in a couple of months (which should be fuunnn! I'll let you know how it goes)
    Sweeeet! PM or email for some brain dumps or idea bouncing. But your stories and directions are always mind opening for me anyway. Awesome awesome, I can't wait.

    Bethan!! Happy Birthday!!!

    Hehe, glad to hear all's well down your end, and you've been producing some amazing art lately!!

    Your sketches have always been fantastic, and these are no different, great line and I love the sense of humor and character!!
    But its the digital work that's really progressed recently... LOVE the colours and brush strokes!!

    Keep up the great work, and thanks a bunch for the sb visits!!
    Cheers Beth,
    matt

    Quike Garcia: cheers! the Up plan was a glorrriiioouusss idea I was entranced and want to watch it agaaaiinnn
    miycko: FANKOOOOO
    dwardo: mmm... chicken roll...

    but i need you man! if you stop nibbling the parasites off my whaley back, I'm going to get all gross and itchy. and that is no good for creative output

    and thanks very much for the offer of a bit of idea bouncing! I will definitely do that, we should be starting the new project in a couple of months so I'll let you knowww

    Jaytea: always needs more goddamn mountains
    JailHouseRock2: YESSSSS I'm glad to hear you think so! Cheers very much for visiting, this spurs me on to do even moooreee

    and a big thanks everyone for the birthday wishes! it was awesome. I got lots and lots of comics, tea and fancy pants new pens (and I had a famous dead people themed halloween/birthday party. I was Van Gogh. I couldn't hear what anyone said to well)

    minor update of some stuff a few days old. I'm prettyyy tired and I think the picture for self portrait day kind of shows that

    Hehehehe, Melanine Funny!

    Fact: I fear that if I see your lines animated, my head will explode, but I won't mind.
    Even the style of digital cut out animation I reckon would be nice with your style.
    Vancouver Film School works are a nice start to get inspirations and a feel of what's
    possible, otherwise any studio house for commercials are always kick ass.

    These look sooooo eeeaaaasy on your end. Motivation in my pocket.

    dwardo: thankyou for these delicious titbits of information. I'm eagerly scoffing them up!

    I've been feeling pretty awful lately. I got a nasty part time job which bought back a lot of things I thought I was rid up (but I suppose you're never truly rid of them, they're just hiding underneath the surface. like... frogspawn, or something)

    but after a bit of a meltdown in art the other day (I may have to be contained in a bunker. I'm not sure what my effective radioactive halflife is) and some help from teachers and stuff I NO LONGER DO A HORRIBLE JOB

    AND SO BACK ON TRACK WITH DRAWING

    also: God bless the nine to fivers and anyone else who hates their job and maybe can't escape like I did. I LOVE YOOUUU have a beautiful picture of a beached whale* from the national geographic

    *god bless the whale too

    Mmm I love all these wonderful, crazy sketches and ideas.

    I don't know why, but that pink sketch of the man in the diving suit fascinates me immensely.

    happy birthaday : (that was late lol)
    again, fresh sketchbook, fresh experiments, fresh eye fun - keep you looseness and stay creative
    Oh, what are those conceptsketches from Oktober 25th from? Very nice characterdesign on that wizard C:
    If you have time, check out Pinocchio by Winshluss, it could give you a kick to do more comics (yeeeessss!)

    (just noticed how close those sb updates are together, insane)

    I just took a break to post this.
    But sometimes I also draw stuff

    Thank you for your supportive words. I send a big "Thank you" with huggs, put it in my pocket and go bonkers. Your lines and Kiera's look so easy ... it's killing me softly, like a big heavy marshmallow sitting on top of me. nomnomnomnomnom

    PS. The links aren't fixed yet, but you could so easily replace them any of these wonderfuls. /E

    Kiera: thankyoooh for the late birthday wishes! and the nice comments and the winshluss tipoff (that stuff looks glorious. I'm all fired up!) the october 25th stuff are illustrations for a kid's book I'm doing for my art class : D
    wookiedabo: ah man, getting somewhere with this is where my difficulties lie. I've got to learn to string all my ideas together. thanks!
    dwardo: I'm totally going to absorb you into my huge marshmallow body and give you a gooey hug of a thousand thank yous
    theories: THANKYOUTHANKYOU aaahh that's so nice of you to say

    bit of a hectic week. I died my hair navy blue on a crazy whim this monday and am very tired.

    but I always keep going! I'M KICKING THIS LIKE JEAN CLAUDE VAN DAMME

    Leonor: thankyou! I do try. I'm too scared of getting complacent!
    theories: 'FRAID NOT! D: it's just a reference to a man who kicks like a flexible demon with itchy legs (or maybe a one trick pony)



    and thankyooouuu I will try to bust out some colour. I stay far too snuggled up in my greyscale comfort zone

    a christmas comic for my college magazine that I forgot yesterday. oopsie
