i don't really know what i'm doing. I spent some time lingering around this site just postin some comments and critiques on other artists sketchbooks. During the process I realized how much competition there really is.. and I also jumped to level 2. so now i'm... ordinary. haha. Anyways heres some stuff from my sketchbook and i also recently purchased a intuos4 so towards the end there is some digital stuff. Any comments are welcome.. except for unwelcomed ones.

here is some more. A guy I observed and sketched while he was asleep on the train home. and a zombie. The zombie one is a pretty old sketch.

I just did these. well the hand studies are older but the characters are new. And I just realized the hand on the fly is too big. I know. Hopefully, after getting some experience with photoshop, these guys will end up with some color.

awesome sketchbook! can we see some more finished pieces??
Very good studies. I like the screaming monkey.
Thanks guys. I was starting to think that nobody was looking at my sketchbook. I will definitely try to get some finished sketches.
here is some recent sketches along with some stuff I did using my new intuos4 and painter and photoshop.. and stuff. hehe

There you are! You're not invisible, just very difficult to find since you don't have a link to this sketchbook in your sig. If you click on "quick links" on the top menu and click "edit signature", you can add your link there. Beautiful start...the skull is gorgeous. On some of these digi paintings, it could be cool to play around with composition a little since most of your subjects are dead center. I'm definitely drawn to the latest version of the "eyeball dude" more, since he seems to have solidity, weight, and balance that the ink(?) sketch lacks. My favorite version is actually in the sketch here...his limp arm, hand gesture, and pot belly really add a lot to the image.
James Dean piece is great.
cool stuff man. that skull and the james dean portrait are soo much better than a lot of your other stuff. try to live up to those. might be tough cause they are so good.
That last portrait's great. I'm liking the one-eyed guys, too.
DeeStar: Thanks. I worked on that for hours. and I probably could have worked on it way longer
DeKal: Thanks. Skull is the same as James Dean. hours! i got an A on it though, so I shouldn't complain. And yea I really wana get my color stuff up there with quality
DoctorPencil: Thanks. I really enjoy doing the studies. They serve as good reference.
szaionz:Weird. Nobody else lkes the eyeball guys besides me and you. haha. Thanks. I appreciate it.
Well. Here's some recent pencil sketches. I ACTUALLY DREW FOR TODAY! i need to get into the habit. like robert deniro said, "the saddest thing in life is wasted talent." These guys will have color soon

Holy shit dude! That skull rendering and James Dean portrait is fucking SICK! Awesome work dude!
Thanks for dropping by my SB! You mentioned up above that you 'don't know what you are doing'. What do you mean by that? You've got great artistic potential. It is clear for anyone to see. I mean look at that James Dean portrait!!! There is a bridge between your life drawing skills and imaginative skills. Give that some more work. Do lots of focused anatomy studies. Start with skeletal structure then work outward (skeleton to muscle to skin to clothing to...etc...). My studies have been real sporadic but I am working to fix it and work according to the inward-outward model I have set for myself.
Anyways, good to see that you have started a sketchbook. Hope to hear/see more from you!
i like what i'm seeig here.. some very good skills! de skull and james dean is just to awesome i think i understand what you mena by 'i don't know what i'm doing' i have the same feeling, but peetaer's advice is very logical i guess. keep'm comming.
Peetaer: Thanks for the advice. I do actually study anatomy and try to understand it. I took a anatomy class last semester which helped me ssoo much. but now I only really like working from live models.. and schools out anyways. thanks!
jocky: thanks. i do intend on taking Peetaer's advice. work inside out.. but what I meant by "i don't really know what i'm doing" is that i don't really know how forums work, as far as postin images, links, etc. im still getting the hang of it.
Anyways. Here's a lil somethin i started yesterday and finished today.
Hey, I like yor book du5k. Excellent skull back on post #9 man. Look forward to more.
Peetaer pretty much said what I was going to say. Your charcoal studies are beautiful, and the James Dean is top quality. Grats on the Intuos4, takes a bit of time to learn the ropes with photoshop etc, but it gives you a lot of freedom to experiment and have fun. Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook too.
jigje: Thnks a lot. That skull took hours to get it to that stage
Mr. Gadbury: Thanks. Charcoal studies are always fun. I love just watching charcoal just taking form into something. ahhh. Its great.
Here's some quick sketches. about an hour a piece. It started with just a few random strokes on my wacom.

i love those legs you did in charcoal. I can really see the shape and the form.
keep practicing on the Wacom, although I recommend using corel painter.
To me it just feels way more natural. They have a 30 day trial-you won't regret it!
Hey dusk, cool stuff in here!
That robot in love is just too cute. I also like your latest pencil page! Looks promising.
I also like the direction the second piece in #25 is heading to.
Do your thing, man!
Edit: Haha, guess you have to change your title! xD
Yeah, title change needed. lol
Dude, you got some awesome artworks there! How long have you been drawing?
