    Warewolf Jackal Monkeys and such. Need lots of practice.

    Starting a sketchbook. Just some stuff for starters. At least this way someone will see this crap besides me. Sorry some of them are so dark. Think I overdid it trying to fix the contrast on my cheap camera photos. Critique welcome. Definitely need more practical practice but the weird alien blob stuff is fun.

    And on to today's drawing. I'm going to try and at least have one a day to put in here. I've really gotta find a better way to photograph these. It's yet another Stimpy happy nose goblin. Enjoy my pure unbridled genius!!!!

    Nice stuff so far. I'd say focus getting the realistic stuff down. It's not bad but it could use some work.

    Very nice shading though.

    Thanks people. Agreed I need to get some life drawing in. Hopefully in a month or two I'll be back in a life drawing class. I'd been in one before years ago and found it very rewarding but after years of not sticking with it I'm trying to get the juices flowing again. Although I had a tendency to misplace people's anatomy in wild proportion errors I do miss charcoal and newsprint. Also going to have to bite the bullet one of these days and attempt color.

    Again appreciate the feedback and encouragement.

    This took me forever. I give myself an "E" for effort. Legs are kinda funky, eyes have a weird slant, not enough contrast in the shading (my photo editor made it look better than it is), overall the photo I drew from kicked my A....

    Cool points if you actually recognize this guy.

    Ahh yes and here's the reference photo

    Really let loose with the corny on this one. Just a line drawing for now. I'll go back later and either finish it up in pencil or pen. Sorta a monster I came up with for the thieves pit from Dante's Inferno. Hands look a bit iffy.

    Nothing to post today except a 2 page attempt at color which frustrated me to such a degree it now has the F word scrawled all over it and it's crumpled in my trash. So instead some old abstract messy stuff that's probably more or less irrelevant, but screw it it's my sketchbook. I believe some of this stuff was completed drunk.

    Haven't updated in forever. I've been in an art class and a mental hospital. I'm now free slightly educated and fully medicated ready to get my draw on. Next semester color theory.

    Here's some of what I've been up too. I'm a community college big shot so my better artwork is hanging in distinguished community college libraries and hallways.

    Bad photo quality all round I know, with big annoying yellow dates. It sucks but I don't feel like photographing it all again.

    The landscape up there is Antarctica and that's my current baby. It took allot of trial and error to figure out how to draw blocks of ice and not make them look like rocks. Proud of that one. Never done landscape before.

    Critique and feedback always welcome.

    Today's practice. Might add more later. This has some problems I can see. Lily's left eye is a bit off, not too sure about the mouth, and it's drawn too carefully. But good portrait practice nd I think it does look like Lily Munster. I think I did OK hitting the 6B really hard because I have a tendancy to go too light so I got some contrast going.

    Childhood crush done just for fun by the way.

    More drawing later. Found a deer skull that's calling my name.

    Committing to getting drawing in every friggin day come hell or high water. Want to experiment, practice, and improve.

    Really creative stuff in here. I like it. But I would like to see more studies. Always fun with studies, isn't it?

    Keep up great work!

    Some sketches of the aforementioned deer skull. Graphite and a 2h pencil. Tried to loosen up, not kill the line, and not fixate on details. Need to break bad habits. Think I did OK.
