    Looks kind of like Adam Warren's stuff. This is a good start.

    Hi there.

    A nice start to your sketchbook and it's nice to see colour. I like your characters, though you could push their originality up a notch.
    Your first painting is quite nice, though you need a definite light source and sronger contrasts.
    I love the colours on the last one, apart of the background. I'd go with unicolour, just looks cleaner and more appropriate.

    Cheers mate

    Hey. Nice work. Love the colors.

    The first painting could have been even better if you added more detail on the background.

    Like the characters ANNIE COLT and RICK SLABJAW. Would like to see more of those

    I think when you paint, you should try doing a painting a greyscale first, then add color on top. I think it would help you add more shape and form to your characters.

    Your cartoonish stuff is kinda like one part Ren & Stimpy creator John K and one part Earthworm Jim and Neverhood creator Doug TenNapel. However, your realist stuff is also great.
    Here's a suggestion: you should diversify your subjects a bit.

    One pointer: Don't forget the illusion of depth in your environments. The further back, the bluer and lighter. It'll add a lot.

    Cheers

    start those anatomy studies, drawings from life and all those sorts of practice. good start though (most pleasing colours I can see is in the background of that cyberpunk angel picture). work on understanding yer shadows, which, like erinel said, is easier to do if you work monochromatically

    good stuff so far, best of luck to you and keep drawing youth!

    What an overwhelming lesson to all artists! Be not afraid of absurdity; do not shrink from the fantastic. Within a dilemma, choose the most unheard-of, the most dangerous, solution. Be brave, be brave! - Isak Dinesen

    janos: yeah, cheers for that, ive been forgetting to take that into account when doing my background studies, fail, thanks for pointing that out

    gutts: ha i actually have ongoing sketchbooks for anatomy and life stuff but there all in sketchbooks, and im liking in scanner, but i am working on em, and yeah most of my "realistic" images totally need more contrast, thanks for the colour compliment, that what ive really been working on lately, glad its paying off
