    Book update. Still putting along...

    This my semi daily sketch excercise thread. hopefully i can keep posting as much as possible and get better with the C&C. thanks everybody.
    I needed a new preview image so the first one is real recent...the rest are a dump of stuff that was a small enough file size to upload from my laptop.

    Ink Sketchy Time!

    2nd day and it was consecutive. YES!
    Ok, so i love drawing with a brush. Of course if im really trying to hammer down a sketch i'll use graphite or PS but if not...i choose to use a #6 or 7 Round brush to play. Like these:

    Vincent Price-help? Critique?

    Moleskine drawing. I like the pissy attitude but i feel like im losing it as a build up color. Could have just been an off morning though. My cat was violently attacking the dingle balls on the table cloth so i was half painting, half swatting kitties. I'll have to try to breathe a little life back into the linework once i have the color worked out a bit more.

    jackpot_anjr90 -Thanks for the encouragement, I really do appreciate it. I'm really trying to devote myself to posting everyday.
    laxon -I appreciate the color comment, I was trying out some different layer states and then painting directly on top of that. It still feels a little awkward to me but I guess thats why it a sketchbook.

    Just playing with some stuff I learned with the last couple excercises I did. I'm looking to move forward and build up a good portfolio of CA...so if anybody's got some tips, feel free to shoot. Thanks

    Thanks J Food, Im way more comfortable with the brush but I feel like I'm getting used to the way Photoshop paints. I took a digital landscape class a long time ago (which was fun...) but I kind of lost the feel for it.

    Technically, I didnt just do these drawings but I thought I'd share them. The finishes are on my website. I did em for a skateboard company. Did two others too, but I couldnt find the sketches...lame.
