    Jesus Food: Thank you. And I agree, it's about time I did more figure, character and creature work.

    Back to the pencils. Not sure what this is about but it was fun to scribble.

    Fumble: If you mean the last batch at the top of this page, then yes, they are from life. I used a Nintendo DS and just found a shady spot to cut down on screen glare.

    A couple of old diving helmet studies done on my DS. I am seriously thinking of remortgaging my house so I can buy an original helmet. I could piss the neighbours off by trouncing around the garden pretending I'm a Big Daddy, or just wear it around the house while I'm doing the hoovering, or something.

    AustenFM: Cheers, dude. Still saving my shavings, but as my pencils have been a little thin on the ground the growth rate has dwindled somewhat. Will have to look into that.

    OMG those are some really awesone DS paintings! I still haven't even figured out how to transfer them to my computer.
    Great work!

    I suppose no matter what I'm drawing, there will always be some sort of question in my mind about it. A work of art (even cartoon art) is never really finished; it is abandoned.

    I like your enviro-digis and much more your pencil sketches. I am looking forward to more enviro-stuff with pencil and pencil figures like on the first pages! Thanks for sharing!

    LordVenom: Thanks man. I should experiment more with my colours and stray out of my comfort zone.
    Mitze: Cheers. One of these days I'll get back to pencils big time. But not today, I guess.
    Eddieee: Thank you. I need to start creating characters and steampunk would seem a logical way into that area for me... brass nipple ornaments and all that.
    Asterisks: Thanks. To dump DS paints to the harddrive you need a usb stick with a micro sd adapter.
    Soros: Haha... I keep saying o myself I'll ditch the wacom for a while and go back to pencils. Sometime soon, I hope.

    Gotta start posting my backlog, so here's the first batch of DS dumps - random film studes & odd junk...

    Those environments left me completely speechless. Amazing use of colors with some kick-ass compositions.

    Those DS sketches are astounding, i got mine setup with colors not long ago but i cant seem to get into it yet, my stylus is too damn tiny to use comfortably. How long do you typically spend on a DS piece by the way?

    All great, and that last batch of environments is especially enticing. More!

    I love that dragon pic! The foreground marsh is beautifully done, as is the wing blur, as are lighting decisions you made. It feels 100% like it's occupying that space. The river by the castle is really off, but the meat of the pic is lovely.

    Concerning the columnar building pic... That mini-one in the foreground is really ruining the perspective. The two big issues I see with it are: First -- although it's meant to be considerably closer to us, the windows -- which seem of the same sort as in the larger structures -- are actually slightly smaller, which tries to drop it behind the big'uns even though it's in a forward plane. Second -- The general form and texture of it is the same as the huge ones, but all proportionally scaled down. It looks like a scale model, which I doubt was your intent.

    Really nice natural and industrial studies/displays overall, and I'm loving those adorabots!

    About the walrus fellah... That large neck area feels like it's on the same plane as the tusks, and it has no form. Underneath the left tusk the form is darkening, following the general outline of that tusk. Not only does that not properly describe the form of the neck, but it makes it seem to interact with the tusk (which it shouldn't be doing). Also, you totally spaced on the opportunity to describe the form of the neck with shadows from the helmet bone-adornments, not to mention that it keeps the helmet from feeling real. I know it was a quick paint, but you gotta watch that. Remember, it's not about painting a thing, it's about looking into the form.

    Keep it up, and Thanks for posting all these! -- You gotta post your DSG from yesterday, people following this thread will be very, very pleased to be treated to it! That thing is bad-ass (despite its amusing oopsy).

    Have to say - I love this sketchbook! Nice pencil work but mainly those environment paints are awesome - did you say they are mainly done on painter? I seem to remember reading that somewhere. Really interested to see what else you come up with next, and definitely will be back!
    P.s. I wish I had that kind of dedication to rendering myself, I struggle with that but you obviously have no problem with putting in the hours!

    Ehm... wow... I dunno what to say. Your work actually blew me away. Love your studies... but seriously, you really took the breath out of me just on your last sb-page!

    Thanks for the support, guys. I really appreciate it.

    AustenFM: I usually spend around 45 minutes on my DS paints. Sometimes more, sometimes less. I use an old Wacom pen instead of a stylus. Maybe try that?

    William B: Thank you so much for the crits. A real eye-opener for me... particularly regarding drawing out the form. I think that will really help me. Oh, and "adorabots" is such an err... adorable phrase. I hope that isn't patented!

    ThomasM: I used to use painter, but I've lost my disc and can't be arsed to go rooting for it. I don't really have any dedication for rendering. I'm lazy, so I just scribble a lot.

    A couple of DSG's + some DS bits 'n' bobs...
