Been a long time since I Rock n' Rolled (updated today)
Well I feel it's time I create a sketchbook, I'm 19, love art, and im unhappy with my current progress rate which seems to be at a stand still. So i'm going to try and do sketchs, alot of sketchs, and upload them here as often as I can.
Some of the sketchbooks on here amaze me and I love seeing the progress made, and on a few of them im astounded at the progress in such a short time!!
To start things off here is a 'lil creature sketchticul
Go to last page for new Works... duh?

Welcome to CA bro! Fair start to your sketchbook, Id say the strongest piece in here so far is your anatomy studies. Go check out Bridgeman's Constructive Anatomy from your local library and draw from it, draw from photos, from life. Just keep drawing and you'll improve. Study perspective too, it's good to build up as much as possible and grow. As you said, enough of the anime crap. Thats right, stay way from anime if you want to draw more realistically. Im not saying that anime is bad, I love anime, watch it all the time, but I dont draw it anymore. Drawing anime, I think, is a phase that most of us go through at a certain point in our lives that's like a gateway drug to other styles of art and drawing. Keep posting, I'll try and give you the best advice and critiques I can when I can.

IanE: thanks, he's only adorable until he casts lv.1 magic on your with his tongue i'll drop by your sketchbook soon.
Envisor: Thanks a ton, your very right I think, and now im more determined then ever to take anime skills and turn them into some real drawing skills. I actually found a sribd(online) version of that anatomy book this morning and tried a few very quick sketches of the hands.
Here is two sketches, sorry about quaility, paper is slightly too large for scanner. The hands were each done in about 30 seconds-4 mins for the larger ones, just trying to get a feel for the lines.
The other stuff took a bit longer, prob 30 mins to fill the whole page.

Working on photoshop skillz a bit today, trying some new techniques for Ice/reflections and messing with glowy magic.
This creature is actually a design for a game project with some friends that went nowhere, but he is pretty much an ice dwelling magic casting creature who uses its tongue to cast magic along with his trusty wand... he stole

Updating with some fish anatomy and concepts for a dragonlike sea serpent fish.... thing haha, and a weapon concept using google sketch-up.
In case you were wondering:
The weapon is attached to a persons forearm, and they have a grip they hold on the opposite side (I'll be doing some more angles tomorrow to show you and touching this one up a bit) and use it to stab/jolt at the same time.

I see linework with lots of potential, and funny ideas (dead fish in its belly)!
About grayscale sketching: don't fear high contrast!

TheWishfulOne: Thanks for stopping in
Peetaer: Thanks man, will do ^.-
Jasper Flick: Glad you caught the dead fish haha, wasn't sure if it was noticeable enough, thanks for the encouraging words.
I was pretty busy today but i decided i really liked the idea of a underwater dragon, so i started to sketch one out digitally (not very exp in this yet)
he's gonna be gaurding a chest of glimmering gold down on the bottom of a deep reef, tell me what you think of the sketch so far.
