Recently I've been doing a lot of quick pen and pencil sketching and a lot of more-ambitious-than-usual digital work which I haven't gotten a chance to refine to a state that I feel comfortable posting yet. I promised a friend that I would update this today though, so here are a couple of things I whipped up in the last couple of months.

You may have heard of a band called "Walk Off The Earth" that recently became quite popular after a certain video of theirs went viral. They're from my hometown and Joel, the drummer, is a friend of mine from high school. Anyway, a little more than a week ago they called and asked me to design a shirt for them featuring their keyboardist, Mike "Beard Guy" Taylor, and you can now see/buy that from their store HERE! Exciting!
Also, I did a portrait of Marlo yesterday.

Awesome, how you managed to improve your skills!
Those portraits are very, very cool!

I've been trying to do at least one page of stream-of-consciousness doodles per day since last August, but recently it has gone down to more like two per week. Here are a few of the ones that I've done since 2012 started. Lots of goofy faces, silly experiments, extremely sloppy anatomy, and monsters.

Wow, four stars, really? Here's a fiver from me, you deserve at least that.
Your digital painting carries a softness that is incredibly pleasing to my eyes. Especially the self-portrait, wow. Incredible, incredible understanding of tone, beautiful rendering of form, and most importantly, a brilliant feel for the surface of the medium. Even the digitals have a tactile quality to them.
Nothing but praise from my end, keep updating this sketchbook.

Yeah, as Vritra said, you have great digital work here. I would only suggest to use more color variety and to use it wisely. E.g. the selfportrait could be much more colorful. Human skin tends to reflect surrounding colors and I bet that the blue shirt you are were wearing had much bigger influence than you showed us.
Anyway keep it up

Vritra: Your vote pushed me over the top! I'm honestly a little stunned that I have a 5-star rank already. It doesn't seem that long ago that I was getting all excited about hitting 4 stars. Thank you so much!
merl1n:Thanks a bunch for the helpful critique! I definitely agree about the colour thing and that's something I've been trying to improve recently. As far as my self-portrait above goes, my shirt in the reference photo was actually much closer to black, but I changed it for the portrait and I guess I wasn't thinking enough about how that would affect the rest of the image. Good catch.
Worked a bit more on the ugly thing today.

I'm kind of disappointed that I didn't get this C.O.W. in for the final vote. The piece was technically done in time to be submitted, but a typo led me to believe that it wasn't due until 24 hours after the actual deadline (which was last night). Oh well. Here's the finished piece:

Velocity Kendall: Thanks! I had to look up that reference. I've been meaning to read some of Iain M. Banks' stuff, but I just haven't gotten around to it. I outlined my idea behind the creature in this post HERE.
Aryeh: Thanks for the tip! I do put a few compositions in boxes in my sketches but it really is something I should be doing more of.
Here are a couple more fluffy clouds and some quick robot/mech thumbs.

Nice to see you try your luck at robot thumbnails, and the latest pixel piece is great as always. As for pixel art programs, I think you ought to check out Ultimate Paint, xPaint (For Mac), and Paint.NET when you get the chance. Did I mention that your color selections are also nice?

Patonki: Thanks man! I also really like those particular clouds, but they felt a little too heavily inspired by Sam Nielson's clouds in this image, which is why I drifted a bit further from that style for the others.
inverse catheter: Thank you!
FightingSeraph: Thanks for the suggestions. I don't really have any plans to do more pixel art in the near future, but I will definitely check those programs out if/when the need arises.
