    POAST MOAR OILS, that one is fucking cool. Do you hit up anatomy studies, you've got great linework and i think some anatomical studies could only help strengthen this SB. Great photos too, I've saved a couple for enviro photo studies, hope you don't mind. Cheers!

    i really like the ink stuff. the landscapes especially. the scribbles of value look almost random but i can still differentiate between earth, building, rock or trees. what type of pen are you using? i also like the figures with the washes for value. what type of paper did you use?

    Dana: Yeah, I've been doing a lot of digital concept work the last six months, so naturally one does improve if you keep working with something. Thanks for the feedback.

    Metal Finger: I'm looking at setting ,myself up with a portable oil painting setup, so then i should be painting a lot more. And as far as subject matter goes, these things work in cycles, so sometimes i'm doing tons of anatomy and other times other things, so keep an eye out and you might see more figures creeping in. And I have my watermark on all the images, so it's no problem if you want to save some, as long as people seeing them can trace them back to me it's all good.

    Sean: Thanks a lot, bro. My sketching gear is dead simple, a basic artist sketchbook with fairly light(in weight and colour) paper, that way they fit more pages in, so i can fit more drawings into one book. The pen i've used religiously for the last decade is a pilot V5, awesome(and cheap) little workhorse that has been around for more than 25 years.
    For other ink work I use the heavier Moleskine sketchbooks and a dipping pen with a standard nib that allows a great variety of line weights. You need good paper for use with the nib though, because the fluid content of the ink makes light(90-140gsm) paper disintegrate. It takes quite a bit of practise, but if you get the hang of it, it's a very powerful tool. I also have big rolls of Fabriano(10x1.5m) which I chop up into drawing-board sized pieces and then work with. That weights for them are 160gsm and 200gsm. The 160 is less difficult to flatten out and roll up, but the 200 can take way more abuse and better for producing art that will go on sale, because that extra durability helps. The dipping ink i use is a brand called Pebeo indian ink which i found in New Zealand, best ink i've ever used and i've tried all the big names, W&N, Speedball, Higgins, but these guys are totally solid.

    Hopefully this wasn't too much information!

    Oh, and here are some more of those inks!

    Well, this is as far as i'm going with this image. Could tweak it for hours more, but don't really see the need.

    your pendrawings are realy inspiring! Ill have to do some myself now^^
    When you are painting try to always use a brush that feels to big. it makes you think more of how you place you brushstrokes

    Thanks for dropping by my sketchbook...you have some cool work in here, nice pen rendering, but careful with using pen so much, try out some different mediums, be a little more versatile - it could be holding you back only using pen.

    I really like that oil!

    I also enjoy your traditional stuff more then your digital. The only crit I have to say for your digital is that even your finished stuff looks blurry. Try to sharpen them images a bit with a harder brush.

    My observational skills may be great but i said nothing about my drawing skills

    O.O the pen and ink is great I love the way the hatching breaks forms into different planes so clearly. definitely something to learn from

    I have nothing interesting to say but here's my sketchbook, perhaps you'll think I've drawn something interesting XD http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=167964

    Dstrax: Thanks, i agree with you on the oversized brush, will make a point of it.

    JustinBeckett: I work in lots of different media on different projects, it just tends to be the ink work that ends up here. And drawing is the one constant that informs all the others anyway, so I don't really see too much of it as any kind of bad thing. But the thought is still appreciated, thanks.

    My57: I hear what you're saying, but i hardly regard these as any kind of finished renderings, they're thoughts which are meant to capture a basic idea, they might be continued and completed later, but for now they serve to create further visual developments. That make sense? Still, good to hear what you think, so keep up the crits.

    Strange1900: Thanks! Now go draw!

    Yo! You've got really nice pen drawings going on in here. I love the shingle-y landscapes! That being said, I think you should try to push your landscape design beyond that shingle look, or find a way to parlay it into something new and different. Don't get me wrong, it's awesome, but it seems all your landscapes have the same feel.

    Great work! I really like your figure work too.

    New lot

    Hey. Well, here are last month's leftovers, some very rough digital sketches, but i feel i'm moving in the right direction, so don't judge me too harshly just yet. A lot of these are simply putting pen to paper(so to speak) and seeing what happens, so there's nothing particularly premeditated going on here...

    So awesome. Love how refreshing it all is, it's like pure raw imagination on paper.
    That's what I really like about the beginning of the sketchbook too.
    Just keep on rocking! not got much advice since you're doing it all anywayz

    Love the page with all the female pen sketches man. I think with these latest digital females you should try giving them a much lighter background to sit on, I think that will really help with the contrast and bring them out a lot more. Keep it up!

    Crabby

    I hear you, Jasper, things were getting progressively darker and it was actually getting to be bit of a pain working, so I'm dialling it back a bit!

    Here a crab tank on the lighter canvas!

    Ticking over.

    I made bit of a mental breakthrough as far as the use of blending is concerned. It's great when you finally have the light go on with something you've been trying to figure out for so long. Especially something so simple, but at the same time tricky. Like masks!

    Another short one.

    Sharpening new skills i've acquired is much better done in short burst drawings. One tends to learn more that way, so here's the last fast one I've done.
