Alright. I've been trying to decide wiether or not to start a sketchbook, but I think I'm going to go ahead and do so. I'll only start off with two drawings, as I really have nothing else that is good. But I hope at least someone will enjoy this. Please critique if you want. Anything helps. So, here it goes:

New Sketches for today. Actually, just one. I've been working on it for about a day now, and i like the way it looks. I wanted to go for a sort of Gothic Lolita sort of feel when creating this, and so far, I think it's pretty good, although in my poinion i needs more of a darker feel to it. Any suggestions? Anything is helpful, so post/critique away!
Here is a caricature I worked on last night and all of this morning. Hope you like!
I know. How original is that phrase! Just worked on this for the past hour or so. I like the way it looks, what about you? Please, comment away. I need input. It's actually a drawing for a girl who asked me to draw it for her. Hope she likes it. Anyways, critique away!
Eh-hem! Now that that litte joke is over... These are actually drawings from awhile back, and yes, I know, the heads are enormously huge. I'm working on this right now. What I want to know is yiour opinion on the anatomy of things. Is it okay? Is it so-so. Or is i just plain out horrible. Don't be afraid to hold back... please. Otherwise I won't be aware of these things. So, here we go... c&c greatly encouraged
Finally! A reply! My attempts to create a successful sketchbook are finally in the wee stages of evolution. Eh-hem. Cough. Thanks man. Reall appreciate it. Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside
Well, I was sitting at my desk last night, just doodling different ideas, and I had the urge to draw something similar to the Galcatic Cruiser from the movie Lilo and Stitch. So cool. It was inked, and then painted with watercolour. Hope you like!
This new sketch is atually a drawing of a friend and myself. Can't update much. But, I hope u enjoy. More to come! Also, check out Walgreens. They have Jelly Beans for 99 cents! (Munch, Munch, Chew, CHew)
OKay! GOing back to anatomical studies. Wow, it's been so long since I've actually drawn a guy that I forgot how to draw the muscular anatomy. I think I'm gonna take a break from illustration for now and observe for a few days. Thanks to muzzoid and hitnrun for thier suggestions!
You've got a good start to your sketchbook here and I'll say this first (but i'm sure you'll here it more) spend a lot of time working on your life drawing and anatomy studies. Not just a few days but a segment of each day or each time you draw. It will help you improve much faster. But again, nice start and I like how your style stays away from the smooth curves...
WHy thank you. I'm actually hoping I can get to the zoo so I can start to draw some animals. My style is actually a fusion of anime and traditional style animation. Yes, anatomy is a big problem for me, I mean, I know proportions and what not, and the femlae anatomy is pretty much clear to me, but I need to draw more men.
Ok, teh first page (in pink ink) is a study from drama class, in which class I happen to sit in the back. Hence, the people's backs! The facial study is an alto who sits near me in Chorus. We weren't doing much today, so i decided to take a few minutes to draw her and study her face!
Some new stuff. Keep in mind that the facial studies were not done with the person holding still. They were drawn as best as possible!
Those few sketches of that creature is actually my envisionment of what Carnage would look like if he were in spiderman 4!!!!
nice sketches. liked the cartoon style u have. can't wait to see more.
-=E4sY's=- Sketch Book
the style you have reminds me of those carnival portrait artist, in a good way.
Last words are for people who didn't say enough when they were alive.
Well, thanks Sclark. I believe you're refering to caricaturists? Well, haven't updated in awhile so I have a load of stuff to give you. You know I went through my old yearbooks from elementary and middle and my art teachers mentioned that I have sort of have a "natural" talent. You know, I really never did have any lessons, and always pay attention to things around me. I've been freakin tired the past few days. Oh well! Enough chit chat:
Okay. So here we go!!!
nice update DMK! these are great pencil sketches, i might be biased but i think u should do more of that style, and also draw from life
Great work, your faces look great but the bodies are a little too cartoonish. Might I suggest going to a store and finding a human anatomy book and doing some anatomy studies to help you fix your figure. Keep up the good work.
i think the faces are too cartoonish too tho lol
Okay, so this time I didn't time my sketches, instead I used the random pose viewer to take some time on the studies. You know, because I wanted them to look real And also the first image is a study of Dwayne Johnson and somebody else. Hope you enjoy! Also, I'm looking to improve on the muscular anatomy of my arms. Any good muscular ref of arms?
nice update. u could try to add more detail to ur recent studies like just showing where the joints are is an important part of the study
Just checked out your section for the first time. Looks like you are into the caricature/graffiti type stuff. Keep it going as it looks like you have a unique look. Keep drawing from life and mix it up with the fun stuff and you should be doing fine. Play with perspective on the body/environment also. Just keep at it and rock on!
Sort of worked on this watercolour girl. Note to self: Don't use sketch paper for watercolour!
OK! Sort of taking a break from drawing from life and going getting back to the fun stuff. I have been working on this all day. It's my WIP interpertation of the Joker. I really wanted to stick to cool tones with his face. I didn't want it to be a neutral gray, because it would have character.
So, this time I decided to test myself with my new anatomy studies and draw some things in my style. Mainly the batman. What ya think? Also, some other things!!! Finished the Joker painting! Nevermind. Batman didn't scan
Nothing major this time. I've been really tired. Did this with a broken Graphite Barnes and Noble Graphite Stick (They break easily!)
Edit: Added a quick sketch. . It's the one with the flowing hair. Now, the problem with my anatomy is my men. And not the figure, but the muscular figure. And I don't have a very defined figure. So, this standing in fron of a mirror thing to look at your muscles thing really isn't helping much. Any suggestions on how to improve muscular anatomy, because I'm driving myself crazy, because I feel like I already know all this stuff. I mean, no offense. But I've been drawing for 12 years!!!!
