    .. 95% traditional work

    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.

    New stuff

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    jackpot_anjr90: Thanks. I'm glad people like that portrait. I spent hours on that thing. and I would update my sketchbook more often but I don't draw as often as I would like to.

    Your charcoal stuff is great work! I guess since you're new to digital stuff, you can try to spend more time to do finish work with some loose sketches while completing your finish work.

    Will be watching this thread.

    i love those legs you did in charcoal. I can really see the shape and the form.
    amazing.
    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
