    But I can't chew on digital crayons!

    Hello ladies and gentlemen,
    *write a giant paragraph then deletes it* Something about being on these forums makes me talk too much. Without further rambling...here's some stuff I've been working on. The last three are in progress.

    The newer on definitely has more flare to it. The rendering looks a lot better too, though I'm not diggin' the thick black lineart on his face. The background is very cool looking, but it's distracting. Draws way too much attention.

    I like it a lot though. : ) Very cool looking. A really big improvement.
    If you have the time, please stop by my sketchbook, Chock Full o'Nuts.
    I would appreciate any advice or critiques.

    Nice character designs and a simple and effective style of bringing them to life.
    I would reccommend working on your poses. Some of them look a little stiff or unnatural. Also, there are small anatomy flaws (very small). Try to have someone (a friend, for example) do the pose and you sketch it from life. Anyway, that's a really good start"! Keep up the work

    Hehe nice title on your sketchbook
    I like the Artificer, good colors and details. And I like your style of the backgrounds. (How do you make them exactly?)

    You should watch out for too much 2D-flatness. The Artificer is believable for me, but the other pieces (although not bad at all) have something flat wavering around them. Maybe it's the reliance of black lines to form the faces, maybe something else. Feel free to disagree with me though

    Ciao, lewis

    make more use or your contrast, darker up your shadows.
    in the last piece, if the light is mainly coming from the lightbal, then you shouldn't be able to seen the inside of his 'dress' that good, it should be almost black. Anyway cool art, i like the idea's and the use of colors, though you should get the poses somewhat more fluid, they look a bit stiff to me
    cheers

    Working on another colorization here. Took extra time on the shadow layer. Check it out (I'm posting a larger image of it if anyone wants to fine tooth comb it)

    Cool cartoon style, it seems old fashioned, I don't know why, it just does.

    Hell yeah, that's what I like to see! That page with the character thumbnails of the bandaged guy with the tooth axe is great, and i love the winged eyeball warrior.

    update more please!

    Hey all thought i would stop in and splatter scans of my sketchbook so here goes. these are mostly for you Austen i hope your out there. thanks for the feedback!

    I been mostly trying to keep drawing fun and light so allot of this is rough and not thought out and hardly polished. Goals are to draw women , faces, and cartoon style (Tintin inspiration running hot this month)

    Here goes in no particular order and probly too large....
