    Thank you so much for the comments guys. GallenWolf, that's an honor to be inspiring to somebody! I haven't been at it long so you can totally do it.

    Well, I went a whole month without drawing anything because of family visiting and being otherwise busy with work. Started to get back into it yesterday and tonight I tried a tablet sketch in an online sketching program:

    Nice SB, I think you're on the right track, since I always want to give advice or something like that, I'd say maybe you'd wanna practice more of that what you have chosen to specialize in, creature, environment design or what ever. Because good fantasy and ideas come with practice.
    Keep on drawing.

    hiya freakmod, really dig all the sketches going on, u've got some pretty interesting ideas in here! only crit would be to do some more studies from life or ref, seems like you have good ideas just need to convey it a bit better by sketching with some more construction in mind about the form. Keep up the goodness!

    heix33: Thanks! I don't really wan't to specialize in anything, just be able to draw everything, but I definitely need to do more studies of various subject matter. I tried one of a forest after I read your post and realize I still lack tree rendering skills. More studies to come I guess

    snoothcy: Thanks for stopping by! Yeah, I think i've done enough imaginary stuff for a bit, going to get back into studying.. i'll take some life drawing sessions soon. Thanks!

    So, here's a drawing of a forest using a ref photo I took last week, and some imaginary stuff added.

    nice enviro sketch on that last one, i think when doing enviro sketches from ref, it's important to identify planes like background, midground, foreground and as objects appear in the distance in the background the objects are more abstract and more clarity in the foreground, also make note of value patterns it's much easier to capture the big flat shapes and then work to more complex shapes.

    I really like that fish eye perspective, keep at it looking good so far!

    miycko, hey thanks bro that means a lot, I appreciate the kind words!

    snootchy, that's an excellent idea, i'll try visualizing 'layers' and depth more the next time I do some environments. I can totally see where I went wrong on the previous one. Thanks!

    iven, thanks man, I'm trying to lighten up on the shading in the life drawings right now because there's not enough time to render anyways so i'm looking for ways to express shade and shape without excessive rendering. (although ahhhh I do love to render stuff )

    So I decided to go in for some more life drawing so I don't get too rusty.. that's enough imaginary stuff for a bit... time to learn! I'm trying some new approaches at life drawing - I have to say it's the most fun 2 hours of my week and I can barely wait til next week's session!

    no time/ gesture

    iven, thanks man, I'm trying to lighten up on the shading in the
    life drawings right now because there's not enough time to render anyways
    I know what you're talking about do gestures, Capture the hole
    thing in 5 sec. Than play around here and there with the last
    25sec, it helped me to block it in. So I look for the straight lines
    and make a nice fat line around the drawing only for study purpose.

    The muscles and the flows look good, but you need to work on proportions.

    the imagination is taxed to its utmost – and will
    produce its richest ideas. Given total freedom,
    the work is likely to sprawl.”

    If you like PEN I would recommend:
    HEINRICH KLEY

    If you want people to see your stuff properly I find a good size is 1200pix.
    So basicly the scanns you did are each 600pix, I like it, thats how I do my one.
    Your shading is very good, thanks for poping in !

    I really like your pen studies, whish they would be a bit bigger to see more details !

    This is my favorite post of yours, shows a lot of confidence. I really fell in love with pen sketching once I got into it.
    My only suggestion would be to play with a variety of pens. when I was in college my friends and I would raid the dollar store and trade a bunch of different pens just to try out different things. If you can get your hands on one, a water colour brush pen is a really fun one. you fill it with watered down inks and you can do quick washes and stuff.
    also, different paper has different results. A smoother paper makes it easier to work in fine details, a coarser paper forces you to work in a broader way.
    Really, just have fun with it, and try to draw a little bit of everything.
    Happy sketching!

    Hey Rhubix! Thank you very much for your suggestions! I was eyeing a very cool japanese calligraphy pen in a pen shop the other day... It had a curved nib that you could use in different angles for varying line width. That seems like it'd be so awesome to draw with and not need to carry tons of nibs around! I might wait a little while until I get better with this cheap disposable v-pen though.. it thrills me to draw with it! Good call about the paper.. I was in a store today with large pads of bristol board on clearance for $2 for 20 sheets (wtf!!) so I picked a pad up Can't wait to try it - yet.. with bristol board it seems like I shouldn't be damaging it with bad sketches and I find myself not wanting to put a line down on it - something I thought I had totally removed with lots of cheap sketchbooks. Anyways.. to keep my promise of at least 1 drawing a day:

    Talking Backzorz

    I should really get to updating more often, though I only draw on weekends these days. I really miss this place a lot Here's some recent stuff I've done in the last few weekends, and the arm anatomy study was today.

    I pottered about this morning and browsed some used/antique book stores. Picked up 2 marvelous books! "The Human Figure" by Vanderpoel - really nice figure drawing method, but I haven't gotten far into it yet - The copy I found was inscribed inside the cover by a Russian princess in 1930. Crazy.. And "Leonardo Da Vinci's Advice to Artists" which I am absolutely fascinated by. Spent the afternoon reading the translated writings of Da Vinci to his pupils... such a clear thinker, I love his style of writing. Walked around afterwards and looked at the world with fresh eyes. Truly a gem of a book. I'm going to have to visit old book stores more often!!

    I've tinkered with drawing a comic.. so I've attached thumbnails and the start of some pencils that I hope to progress more this weekend (unless i get A.D.D. again and start drawing random stuff instead)!
