    First ever digital sketchbook.

    Wow, what a great site you have here. I am always looking for resources to learn more, practice to get better and I love receiving critiques. So I am going to post everything I can here. Please be honest. I will do my best to participate both ways as well, there's just so much here for a new member, give me time and I'm sure we'll have alot of fun...

    I would like to share all kinds of art including storyboards and digital photgraphy if that's OK. Done both on paper with pencil and my new Cintiq.

    First Batch

    Here are the first ones I have that fit the size limitations. I have more that still need some resizing. Hope you like. Comments and Critiques are welcomed.

    Personally, I'd lay the Cintiq aside for a bit, and concentrate mostly on pencil and paper. It might not be very exciting, but since you're still working on a lot of foundation stuff, it'll be very rewarding. It's a lot more portable, too.

    Some of your 10 minute studies show promise, and you're getting some of the basics of posing already, although a lot of it's still fairly static. Are you working from photos for the quick studies? If you can, station yourself somewhere like a bus terminal or shopping mall or someplace, and draw people there. You'll get loads of natural poses, and the bonus of drawing from life. Life drawing is always best. If there's a life drawing group near you, definitely give it a try. I wouldn't worry so much about distorted figures until you've got a really firm grasp of the figure as-is, and can draw it reliably. Then you know what you've got to work with, and you'll have a good toolset to make your changes.

    Keep posting, it's good to see what folks come up with here.

    Thank you, I really appreciate your input. The cintiq is for when I'm at the computer. But I am still working a lot on pencil and paper. the timed sketches varied between looking at photos and getting family members to pose for me. I definitely need to get out more and I never even thought of looking for local artist groups, great idea! Thanks!

    haha, i really like the birth. it is somewhat morbid and disturbing, but overall a good composition of birth. that reminds me, more blood could be used. god loves blood

    LOL - well, the focus was in the title, not the gore. I was very methodical from the color scheme to the expression to the pose. Everything else was just to put it in to some context. But I like the way you think...

    Thanks.

    She is my first, I'll never forget her.

    You never forget your first do you? Well, here is my first ever attempt at using the gradient mesh tool in adobe illustrator CS3 after watching some tutorials on youtube. Not near perfect but like I said, she's my first.

    Face and hair are insanely difficult.
    I included the wireframe.
