Well, I gave a Chow a try for the first time. A tad frustrated at the moment though, when it comes to coloring I just cant do it. 2 color cel shading just doesnt cut it for me >< Hopefully I can figure out a way to color before the deadline. Anywho here are the lines for now.
Remade the cat from above, something I did almost exactly a year ago. I'm pretty amazed at how much I've improved. Still have a lot to work on though, and this picture made realize I'm in no way developing like I want. Sketching in my style is teaching me nothing. So, gonna start re-teaching myself anatomy then start drawing from life and whatnot.
Before and after, my attempt at coloring, and a crap'o'licious arm muscle study from Bridgman with my horrible spelling of the muscles Bycep, bicep, same thing!
I'm really happy you decided to start drawing again. What made you decide to do it? Did you miss it for a long time and felt like doing it again? Anyway, glad you kept with it. You have some great stuff on here. I'm glad to see you are doing some anatomy studies too. Try painting from observation a little more often too. Overall great job and keep it up. Sketchbook
Istmin52 - Ya, after going a while not drawing I just got this empty feeling along with an unfulfilled creative urge. Hitting the paper again fixed that! Been drawing from observation recently too and it's been helping a lot. Thanks for the tip!
Everyone else - glad you enjoy my art!
Got some free time and had an urge to do some Venture Bros fanart. Not much of an update, but its something.
Release the motherf*cking butterflies!!!
Eventually just got tired of it and gave up on em. Was good pose practice though. His right arm looks a little weird, looked better without his chest piece.
This drawing made me hate my tablet even more. It takes me so long to line and my art comes out looking forced and unnatural. I'm praying that with a cintiq I'll be able to draw like I do on paper and give my work a more organic feel and flow.

Been fighting depression and anxiety for the past year or so, hence the lack of updates. Been feeling great though lately and have started to doodle a lot. I hope to update this much more!
Some sketches from a few months ago and from the moon down is recent. Starting to become interested in learning to paint. Attempted a black and white of Sitting Bull yesterday... made his eyes bulge out a tad too much! ><
Droid - I just zoom in and go over my sketch with a basic brush with shape dynamics and other dynamics turned on. Sorry it took me so long to reply, been kinda in an artistic slump lately and haven't been checking my stuff >_< If ya got any other questions feel free to pm me or post here, I'd be happy to help!
Alright got some stuff to dump. Sadly that intergalactic mailman chow didn't work out for me. I always get my lineart done and then get completely stumped when it comes to coloring. It did get me experimenting though and now i find I'm getting a tad more comfortable coloring.
Here's the intergalactic mailman, the zodiac warrior I didn't finish, a pokemon sketch I didn't fin, an undead wizard, and a quick bust.
