    Love your stuff

    I would recommend more studies from life, and the back to the basics, spheres, cylinders, and cubes from different angles. I tend to draw them in my free time and I think it does wonders for my work and visualizing bodies at different angles.

    Thank you. I am going to work on more basic things in the coming weeks to strengthen my drawing skills. I want to get rid of the stiff feeling in my sketches.

    I like the sketch of the girls with mask - it has potential.

    Fallen Leaf - the transition at the top is too abrupt and doesn't match the rest. Maybe let the green drift off the page keeping the cracks going.

    The unicorn doesn't have the eye in the right place (tad too high) and the cheek suggests mumps. Also the mane is a bit like a wig. More practice.

    I want to see more like that sketch as it isn't stiff.

    Thanks people! BlackSpot, I agree with you about the Fallen Leaf picture and I may revisit it once I get work work done. Oh work work.

    And yeah, I suck at horses but I am trying.

    Here are some sketches that didn't come out that bad:

    This is a rough sketch for a painting I will be putting in my shop.

    His face s very pretty, but the arms are all wrong; the one on the right (his left is miles too short) and the curve of the shoulder reads more as a profile. Tough pose to pull off.

    The face is lot better. I still like your solid female bodies.

    Hey JJacks,

    Lovely sketchbook you have there- compact enough to actually browse it from beginning to end, yet full of studies and nice stuff! I really like your handling of watercolours.. did you teach yourself? It looks really good.
    And you seem to have a thing for design. Ever explored that more in depth? Design skills mixed with painting and drawing can achieve fantastic results!

    psdtutplus is a good site to get some inspiration- just an idea.

    Black Spot - Thank you. I will definitely go back and fix that arm.

    Nubian_Greene Thanks. I don't know if I will go back to it though.

    LordLouis Thank you. I went to a public university for painting and picked up my watercolor skills there (from an insanely amazing professor btw). I like design but I find it a bit difficult. I am looking to incorporate design techniques more into my stuff so thanks for the site.

    Just doodling...like a way quick sketch.

    This was part of a wallpaper design that was going to be a part of an illustration in progress but the wall looks much better as a solid color. I will use this as part of the design for my little print shop.

    First of all thanks a lot for the comment on my Sb.
    Some of your illustrations are quite outstanding, great colors, i really like some of what i would call your "dark illustrations" they have a great identity and it contrasts so much with the lively coloured ones you usually post.
    Keep the great imagination and don't forget to make some anatomy studies.
    Cheers

    Wallpaper designs need to be repeated. If the branch at the top was extended over the bird's head, it would fit snugger as a repeat. Use to do needlepoint repeat patterns.

    Nice sketchbook! I like the way you handle colors - very nice and harmonic compositions.
    The bird wallpaper concept is lovely! But maybe you should avoid the tangent between head from the right bird and the branch, so it looks a bit more "open".
    Not much to critique in here... sorry!

    Some stuff in between then and now that is worth posting. I stopped drawing because I was having some pretty extreme depression. Then I was offered art therapy and I started again.
