The environments in the last post are quite pretty. I especially like the bottom leftmost one (the canal). Your creatures and pencil studies are also quite nice. If you don't mind me asking, were the first couple referenced from a magazine or movie or straight from your head? One thing I've noticed, and you may already be aware of this, is that you sometimes draw your hands unusually small compared to their bodies. The second sketch is the most obvious in this regard.
Great start, dude! Keep up the good work.

very nice sketches, the environmental ones are especially well done. the iron window/gate? surrounded by leaves and plants is definitely my fav. so those digitals are all with the DS? that's pretty awesome, I'd give some suggestions but I don't know what the capabilities of the program are
James Wolf: Cheers, man. The Colors! program for the DS has two brushes (hard and soft) and pressure sensitivity so it's really great for speedies and studies - and even more refined work. It's my own limitations that are the issue so any suggestions are welcome.

your last enviro is great, love the use of texture and the palette is near perfect.
The only thing is, the natural preconception of those darker lines in the road as tyre marks means that the figure appears very small. I don't know whether they're meant to be tyre tracks or pathways but the effect is the same.
keep up the good work I thought the cg inks were wonderful.
gorgeous work, i especially love the crow post, probably my favorite of all (loved the rhyme.)
your first "speedie of the year" caught my eye in the speed painting thread so i had to come and check out your sketchbook, it's amazing, i really like the feel of it, almost like an old oil painting

Good enviros here, or at least that last one^^ The pictures are good as well, I should get me photografi friends to look at them, just to be sure, but I think they are what we in golf would call a slam dunk^^
