    A Year Of Drawings

    Recently I've started a personal challenge in the form of a blog. Basically my aim is to draw something, anything everyday. High level it sounds pretty easy, but work and general life commitments have always got in the way in the past. Well no more excuses! I figured by setting myself a target, I might actually stick to it. Hopefully I might even get a little bit better along the way!

    My blog can be found here: http://tomsdrawings.blogspot.com/

    But I thought it would be cool to also post some of my favourite drawings on here as I go. Feedback only makes you better after all!

    If you have any comments, thoughts on the idea, or even just suggestions for things to draw it would be great to hear from you

    Here are some of the pics:

    Hey nice start man. I love the atmospheric mini environment with the tree. The old guy is full of character and good colour. As for mr potato head - well I don't think the lighting you have used it working right now, as an image there's no depth, and looks kinda unfinished

    Good stuff, more please hehe

    Hey AlexTooth, Thanks for your comments - you're 100% right about mr potato head. Everytime I look at it I like it a little bit less. It's a shame he can't really be posed more dynamically, but more interesting lighting would definitely help. I might go back to it if I get time.

    In other news, here's a painter sketch I did at the weekend of the Incredible Hulk. It's a bit silly, but was good fun to do!

    This a semi-quick painter sketch I did. Not sure about the guy running on the far left, but I'm pleased with the overall composition. Let me know what you think!

    Great pictures! It's shown that you're really spending time on each painting, which is super. The enviormental pic, in your first post, looks really beatiful.
    One thing I got to think of is that The Hulk could use bigger legs.. Hes upperbody looks quite heavy! The muscles overall looks very well anyway.

    Keep this up dude! I'll keep an eye on you!

    Cheers Dannelf I know what you mean about the Hulk. The pic started off being a exaggerated caricature, but then I got a bit too hung up on the anatomy. I think maybe the shadows lack a bit of oomph too....!

    Thanks for the feedback!

    That little enviro of yours at the top is really, really nice. How did you enjoy doing it? Your sketchbook is off to a great start. I popped by your blog and am looking forward to checking out the rest of your work on there. Just wanted to pop in and tell you that I think you're doing some great work - you're really showing off some serious versatility.

    Hey kinjura, just wanted to say thanks for your comments - it makes it all worth while when people say stuff like that

    The tree environment is probably the favourite thing I've done so far. It was more fun to do because it's so simple and stylized. I think I might try and do some more pics like it.

    Thanks again!

    Thought I'd add one of my life drawing studies today. It was a 30 minute study with pencil and paper - I've added the weathered paper look in photoshop to help the highlights to stand out

    Another little environment piece that I did at the weekend. Not sure I like it as much as my other tree scene - I think the sky may be a bit oppressive. Let me know what you think
