Ol' Carl: Dec, 23 2009
Long time scroller, first time poster.
I recently began taking my art seriously, and trying to do an anatomy study every day. My favorite artists are Marko D. and Cole Eastburn, where most of my inspiration comes from. There are many other sketchbooks over the years that have kept me inspired to trudge on through the garbage I used to make, so thank you to everyone for contributing to my imagination.
I mostly work in graphite and some digital painting. I am currently enrolled in Bobby Chiu's 'Digital Painting Techniques' online. We'll see how that goes.
Learning as I go. Im going to try and paint the Pirate char. at the bottom in PS.
The stuff at the top is from this month and late last month, towards the bottom are stuffs from earlier this year. I did a shrinking batch in Photoshop and somethings should be larger than others. Any crits would be awesome, I would love to return the favor in another thread.
I work with juveniles so all i get when I show people art is ass kissing, but I know better. I would love love love some critique, I promise to hit you back .

Uh... am I considered juvenile? *shot*
Whoa, really like your graphite work, the value and shading looks very nice. I can't really help anatomy-wise, but this last guy's [our] right hand is a little funky. Great stuff, otherwise, look forward to seeing more!
wow man very impressive, especially the old guys in caps and works on the gray paper, keep it up ;]
Great work awesome studies.
Id suggest that you also take another look at the perspective in your drawings, in some of them there are some minor flaws in that i think. (the two hands, and the "funky" pirate F.e. :p)
Fullmetal, Syms, Shalite: thanks guys that means a lot and its really encouraging. I'll try to stop by your threads later tonight.
Also heres some more I forgot, these were some of my recent favorites too.

More goons, and some underwater inspirations. Ran out of time to paint the values. Got stuff to do
Hi its Herman from Bobby Chiu’s class nice studying keep focus on analyzing the anatomy I find it most useful
Ahh, your studies are really nice. It reminds me I have to practice^^;;
Hi Ctomlin, nice sketchbook .
Those studies, I was wondering, are they from imagination or do you copy them? Nothing wrong with copying and learning, but close your books from time to time and draw. Now you can see what you learned and what needs more attention .
Anyway, your stuff looks really good so keep pushing it!
hey, nice sketchbook in here, exspecially your anatomy studies are cool , i like you realistic shading!
good and clear jobs but i think some of your jobs human's body skins like metal
Hello sketchbook page turners. I dont post a lot . I'm going to try to get one piece a week done. I've never finished a whole picture the way I've wanted or think that I could have before. But this year is my year, and I've been trying pretty hard the past month to improve and draw everyday.
I do have a lot of crap pages that I do in a crap sketchbook, as well as Jpegs saved from PS sketches, but I figured you would get more out of this, as would I, If I posted my best to be critiqued.
I'm going to color it, (I dont know how) and will fix the edges in the coloring. I also have not done the hair yet...So far I'm pretty satisfied. I'm about 6 hours in.
Its going to be a poster and my first personal portfolio submission.
openanewworld: thanks man, I love going to your threads, good tip I followed it, been trying everyday.
Marleau: thank you, yes practice, it does get boring sometimes though
Lyno: thanks for the tip, I took your advice, and really focused on my own stuff and tried to improve daily on what I kept messing up.
Jatherip: thanks man, im checking yo' stuff out now
destinyapocolyse: yes I have a really bad habit of doing that for some reason and have to overcompensate, for somehow I always want my drawings to be dark on the paper, and it goes over into my PS stuff. Trying to break the habit daily. Loomis fundamentals helped me a little.

You've got some impressive pencil skills huh? It could be fun to play with color too.
Might want to be careful with the darks in your digitals; some darker areas are looking cavernous.
