    Austens Sketch Pad - Kickstarter!! - April 17th 2014

    Hey guys, I'm Austen,

    -2010 update-
    When I started my CA sketchbook I was 19, now I'm 22, I've learned a lot since I've been here, and I hope to learn a whole lot more ( cause I'm surely not getting anything beneficial from my school...) each day I'm here. So take a look and see how things progress and by all means, drop a critique or two, I would greatly appreciate it.

    (EDIT!)
    To whom it concerns, I moved all my drawings from this post to my second post.

    Oh, man, something wicked is going on here.The shark page is particularly cool. I'd like to see more non-comic book-esque anatomy- slightly podgy, lanky, fat, etc. Also, I'd like to see some more female forms.

    These are awesome, and you're makin' me jealous, man.

    I really like your illustrative style and your crosshatching. Keep it up I'd love to see some complete works from you and something more realistic.

    A few recent pages from my sketchbook, I finally repaired my old Loomis book and began studying it, im amazed how off on heads i was!

    here are a few pages of creating heads in a loomis like fashion, most are my own, a couple copied. Also a random doodle page for a project idea. Let me know what you think

    gonna get back to work now, whee!

    Swell stuff! You can already see the improvement. Try some big environments with dynamic perspective, and lots and lots of little characters, ala Where's Waldo style.

    Cool stuff here, really liking the randomness of the stuff you draw, and the style.

    Thanks guys, here are a few more pages from my sketchbook. Mostly head studies. There's also some more sketches of Gibby Haynes for my poster idea, and also a sketch of Obama that I'm doing as a gift.

    enjoy!

    Megatard makes me mega happy. You're gettin' really awesome with the faces. I like the drawings with red, it shows all the steps you took and looks neat.

    You have some good old fashioned low brow talent. keep up the hard work and study, it's paying off.

    Killer stuff man, the picture of the drunk and the baby about made me bust my gut. Also digging the chick hugging the skeleton pilot looking dude, it's all good though. Lets keep in touch man, maybe sometime we could collab on something. Love your lines.

    Hey, thanks guys! That's awesome to hear, makes me feel a lot more confident about my stuff! Here's some more for you guys to take a look over, I think im figuring out the body pretty well so far. I need to go sit in on some life drawing classes though. That would surely be benificial.

    Anyhoo, enjoy!
