You had some nice referenced images in the last sketchbook, as well as drawing improvement...the Age of Rockets was funny.
How come you keep starting a new sketchbook though...its generally better for people to be able to look over your old work! then they can easily see if you arent progressing in certain areas.Portfolio: http://www.jakecollinge.com

Jakers- thanks for the reply, as far as your question. I guess for the same reason you buy a new sketchbook , a new start? I haven't started 3 skbk one right after the other, #1's first post is 2004, #2 I started just under a year ago I just felt like a fresh start. Speaking of which anyone know how I can make my sig smaller I know I should be able to make the words themselves (sketchbook #1 ) into links
anyhow here are some other sketches, I just got a new pc and was trying ps on it still need to find some brushes and make sure to transfer them, but so far runs good can finally use Mr.Blonde's brushes without fear of making my system crash.
Lately I've been really inspired by Mr.Delicious's sketchbook, I'll probably upload some Character designs for a personal project tommorow

Makes sense to me! I just wasnt sure, I didnt go back and check out your first book. Thanks for visiting mine.
As for your signature question - I believe you just highlight what you want to be the link 'Sketchbook #2' then press the insert link button. what you highlighted should now be applied to the URL you enter.
Looks like you're having some fun with brushes do you have a few that you used on the trees in the character image. suggestion foliage is often enough and i like what you've done there. I would offset the character a bit so its not dead center, and you might concider making him larger. Say push him to the bottom right a bit, and do something on the left to balance the composition...mind you, how you have the sword might be a great tool for that already
Do you have a link to the brushes you mentioned? I find its always worth experimenting with new tools to create your own library from. see you!Portfolio: http://www.jakecollinge.com

Here's today's update
just another enviorn for now I'll try to upload some chrctr designs later
again ref used
Jakers-Thanks for the tip I'll try it out, also for the comp tips, since its just a sketch I don't think I'll go further. As far as the folliage I just used some of I belive M@u's custom brushes Just do a search for him I believe he posted them here. I used that to lay a base, I also try'd to make some maple leaves brushes of my own, while it didn't look like leaves to well it did work to just break up shapes which is what I wanted to do. If you look straight up of the knights helmet and just to the left you can barely make out some more refined leaves (thru the atmosphere) you'll notice they have 3 levels the dark and midtone like the rest but also a a slight highlight, this was me trying a technique to use on illustration, it seems to work ok. The idea was to lay down the size midtone and shadow using custom brushes and then to go in and paint in bunches, mostly with just adding the highlight. Thanks for stopping by.
- Oh and the other brushes I mention are the ones included in Whit Brachna's outdoor winter enviornment Download (on the banner up above) the winter mountain scene, they're great.

Sorry about no chrctr designs last night. My scanner has no drivers for Vista, but I had found a go around around that that worked on my vista laptop. Good right? Well I forgot my new desktop is vista 64 bit so no fly! Anyway for today at least here's a morning warm up "Fashion" instead of landscape today.

So here's a Waterhouse study, Well sort of more of a study of a study, not all that faithful to the original, just wanted something to to try out some new PS Brushes I had just created. I have to say I'm relatively happy with how the brushes work.
